    The Quebec injunction makes sense. Not equating the two by any means, but I remember when they started setting a mandatory distance for protests at abortion providers and that made sense seeing how people should feel safe when accessing places.

    Protesting at synagogues is incredibly stupid and accomplishes nothing other than create resentment against those protesting for the rights of Palestinians. My only issue with the article is that it doesn’t mention what specific antisemitic phrases were said, cause I know there’s this thing going around of people equating protestors saying “from the river to the sea” and their intentions with the phrase with the intentions of Hamas when they say they phrase.

      A synagogue sure have a distance but it says “a synagogue and a Jewish organization.” What kind of organization? Is it related to ones hosting actions tied to illegal acts in the West Bank? Are they hosting members of the IOF during an on going genocide?

    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    Pro-Palestinian protests that include expressions of hatred or harassing behaviour cross a line, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.

    On Tuesday, Quebec’s Superior Court granted a Montreal synagogue and a Jewish organization an injunction barring some pro-Palestinian protesters from coming within 50 metres of their buildings.

    That included one event featuring members of the Israeli armed forces and another that she described as a “real-estate tour selling properties in illegal settlements in the West Bank.”

    Montreal MP Anthony Housefather said in an interview a day before Trudeau’s comments that it is “completely unacceptable” for protests to target Jewish houses of worship, community centres or businesses.

    “The protests become a problem when the target and location is intentionally set up to coincide with a religious affiliation,” he said in an interview prior to Trudeau’s comments Tuesday.

    In Toronto, a weekend reception at the Art Gallery of Ontario, featuring Trudeau and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, was cancelled after demonstrators blocked entrances.

    The original article contains 685 words, the summary contains 160 words. Saved 77%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!
