PAJU Press Release: June 16th, 2012 Anti-Semitic incident on St. Denis Street in Montreal

MONTREAL, July 4, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - A woman member of Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) is called a 'dirty Jew' (sale Juive) at the weekly picket in front of the Naot shoe store by counter-demonstrators, a radical right-wing group led by Daniel Laprès who is connected to Éric Duhaime's Réseau Liberté Québec and was a former aide to federal Liberal Minister Bill Graham. ''Their support for Israel is merely strategic and hides a deep-seated hatred of all things Arab in nature,'' states Bruce Katz, president of PAJU. ''This isn't the first time we've heard them use the epithet 'dirty Jew'. This incident has been referred to both the B'nai Brith Quebec and the B'nai Brith Canada.
