Barbara Kay: Quebec strikes a blow against anti-Israel heels
Have you noticed something about the Israel haters who are constantly pushing for boycotts of Israeli products? They never protest against a product they personally would be unhappy to do without, such as their computer, their cell phone or cancer treatments, all of which are "tainted" with Israeli technology and creative invention. No, these hypocrites only protest against products they don't actually need, or that are in abundant supply from other sources, like beauty products and shoes.Case in point: Boutique Le Marcheur, a shoe store on St. Denis Street in Montreal, has since October been the scene of a weekly political performance. Every Saturday, activists from the group Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) amass at the store to protest owner Yves Archambault and Ginette Auger's inclusion of Israel-made shoes - the brand is Beautifeel - amongst their stock.
