Anti-Semitic attack in Winnipeg Cafe puts Woman in Hospital
« on: April 19, 2019, 05:57:40 pm »
A woman was assaulted and a Winnipeg restaurant was spray-painted with hateful graffiti Thursday, police say.

Police were called to BerMax Caffé and Bistro, on Corydon Avenue just east of Kenaston Boulevard, around 10:45 p.m.

The woman was taken to hospital in stable condition, treated and released, police say.

Police say the entire restaurant was "severely vandalized" and spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti. Police are investigating whether a robbery also took place.

The inside of the restaurant was almost entirely destroyed, with plates and glasses smashed to pieces, tables and chairs flipped over and other items scattered across the floor.

The same restaurant has been targeted with similar crimes four times in the past five months, Const. Rob Carver told reporters at a news conference Friday.

Very sad news.  I'm pretty sure the Cafe would have surveillance cameras, in light of the previous antisemitic incidents.

Are the owners of the cafe jewish?

I don't understand what anyone would have against jewish people.  Only Muslims might have a legit quarrel with them, given Israel/Palestian.

You think Canadian Jews should be held responsible for what Israel does?

About the same as what people with British Ancestry should be held responsible for what the UK does.  However, for some strange reason Jews are set to a different standard than non-Jews.

There's lots of hate for Jews out there and the alt-right also persecutes them.

Faith Goldy ran for mayor of Toronto and she went on a podcast and uttered an oath to the white race written by David Lane - who assassinated a Jewish talk show host.

I would not be surprised if this attack was orchestrated by people with Middle Eastern backgrounds. White Nationalist groups are far more likely to desecrate religious monuments or Jewish owned businesses, but physical assaults on Jews are pretty rare.  People from Arab backgrounds are far more likely to harass or attack Jews physically.  At least this is the case in Western Europe.

I didn't see a lot of people of Arab backgrounds wearing Yellow Vests harassing/attacking Jews in Paris recently.

The vast majority of offenders, and nearly all violent attacks are caused by Muslim immigrants.  The Yellow Vest movement was strong in France for a couple of months.  Jews have been physically attacked by Muslims for decades.

LOL no.  Did I say that?  But I can understand why some of them would hold anger towards them, even if I don't agree with it.

It has been proven in history time and again: when your beliefs cause you to commit violence, your beliefs are shit & need amending.

Getting back on topic, I've seen pics of the aftermath of the attack.  The people who did this spray painted a swastika in the cafe, smashed plates, tables, chairs, and did damage to the appliances. This would have taken a lone assailant a considerable amount of time.  I assume there were multiple perpetrators. To commit this assault in a busy area of Winnipeg is troublesome.

It's troubling that there are so many anti-semitic attacks, grafitti, etc, and noone ever apprehended.
This one is particularly intense. I hope they get these perps.

Historically most of the persecution in western countries and Eastern Europe has come from so called Christians. I don’t think Muslims are much into painting Swastikas, that’s more a white supremacist/Nazi thing.

Considering there have been five antisemitic incidents since the cafe opened, I have no doubt that they have surveillance footage.  When I visited Winnipeg this year for the first time in awile, I dropped by the Jewish Campus.  Unlike when it was built 20 years ago, there are security guards and metal detectors there.  It's pretty ridiculous that Jews have to take such measures to protect themselves, especially in Canada. I'm not sure what it is like at Mosques, but I have never been to a Church with these types of security in place.
