A woman, who called herself Maria, phoned into Jacques Fabi’s late night radio talk show on 98.5 FM last week. She started by criticizing Israel for last week’s bombings. Then she began to attack Jewish people and even lauded the Holocaust. Fabi did not interrupt the woman, but continued the conversation and sympathized with her statements. “I’d never dare say such a thing,” he said, adding, “though you probably have the right.” Fabi said that there are consequences for people who speak negatively about Jewish people, especially in Montreal where there is such a significant Jewish population. Then he went on to sympathize with the caller. “If you asked me if the Jewish population can sometimes be annoying, I would say yes,” he said.H/t Maggie's Notebook
