Howard Rotberg still shudders when he remembers hearing the words.
“He is a f***ing Jew!”
His attacker wasn’t a Nazi brownshirt in Germany circa 1938. Rotberg, an author and lawyer, experienced the anti-Semitic verbal attack at a Canadian college town bookstore in 2004.
Rotberg was launching his self-published novel, The Second Catastrophe, at the local Chapters-Indigo, Canada’s largest bookstore chain, with over 70% of the nation’s book sales. Incredibly, his novel — about a Jewish professor whose angry words during a lecture land him in trouble — practically came to life before his eyes that night. Years later, Rotberg is still feeling the aftershocks…
Sigh. Another day, another Canadian author & publisher with a Jewish last name accused of “racism” and “Islamophobia.”
But this time, Rotberg is suing his accusers, not the other way around.
