Yes, she was — this blogger was with us on the “right” side of the street, and her son helped hold up the flag when Wendy and I needed a break.
Of course, Elizabeth May probably wasn’t able to notice me as I was standing across the street from the pro-Hezbollah supporters and behind the Israeli flags. In fact, my son was holding the Israeli flag for some time.
Now, I have not been to a great many ‘peace rallies’ in my day so excuse me if I misunderstand ‘peace rally’ etiquette, but I would have assumed that burning the Israeli flag was not an act of peaceful attentions or a plea for peaceful resolution to the conflict. My bad.
What I really want to ask Elizabeth May is; why absolutely no Jewish leaders from any mainstream Jewish organization from B’nai Brith Canada, to the Canada-Israel Committee, or even the Canadian Jewish Congress spoke at the so-called peace rally.
Then it would be fun to ask her to list the names of the Canadian Arab organizations whose leaders represented at the so-called rally for peace.
