More Cheers for Anti-Semitism on the HuffPost

We missed this story originally, but you might have noticed it if you read Jewish press carefully. In Canada a radio host has got in trouble for not only airing by sympathizing with blatantly anti-Semitic remarks expressed by a caller. The Huffington Post did cover the story but buried it in the Impact section of Huffington Post Canada. Here are the key phrases from the story:
"A woman, who called herself Maria, phoned into Jacques Fabi's late night radio talk show on 98.5 FM last week. She started by criticizing Israel for last week's bombings. Then she began to attack Jewish people and even lauded the Holocaust. Fabi did not interrupt the woman, but continued the conversation and sympathized with her statements."
"Fabi said that there are consequences for people who speak negatively about Jewish people, especially in Montreal where there is such a significant Jewish population. Then he went on to sympathize with the caller. 'If you asked me if the Jewish population can sometimes be annoying, I would say yes,' he said."
If you were wondering if the Canadians were any less supportive of anti-Semitism than the Huffington Post readership in general, you can stop. Many of them either denied that anything was anti-Semitic about what she said, or gleefully agreed with it. Click to zoom in as always.
