White supremacy doesn’t differentiate between Muslims and Jews. White supremacists — including people like Faith Goldy, who insists she’s not a Nazi, although she talks like one — want everyone who is not white to go back where they came from (which is illogical and ridiculous and profoundly ignorant of their own family history as white settlers on Turtle Island). White supremacists often argue that Jews are key to opening wide the doors to immigration of racialized people, including Muslims, in Canada and the US.
CSIS has had a bad habit of discounting white supremacist threats, arguing that they are not national security concerns. CSIS needs to get over that, and fast.
And Jews & Muslims need to stop throwing stones at each other. They’re in the same boat here.
If we’re going to fight hate in all its forms, we have to understand who the enemy is, and we have to fight it together.
