Fake attacks on minorities - Jewish family accused of staging anti-semitic attack on their own business

Just when you thought that people would learn something from the Jussie Smollett affair, a Jewish family in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada has been charged by police with staging an anti-semitic attack on their own business.

Is there anything lower then falsely playing the minority victim card in order to gain sympathy for yourself?

It looks like the family's restaurant business was in financial trouble - that may be the motive for the action that they took. It certainly got a response - other faith groups, and politicians condemned the apparent genuine anti-semitic attack just after it happened.

In addition the family is doubling down on the claim - claiming that the attack was genuine and that they truly are victims. The daughter said this:
"You have to have this in your family to understand. All my grandmother’s family died in the Holocaust. Just her and her little brother survived. We don’t joke about that. . . . We don’t joke about swastikas on our walls.”

It's sickening for someone to use the holocaust in this way.

‘We don’t joke about swastikas’: Winnipeg restaurant owners say anti-Semitic attack was no hoax

"On Wednesday, the owners of the cafe – Oxana and Alexander Berent and their 29-year-old son, Maxim – were arrested and charged with public mischief and accused of faking everything, including the assault on 48-year-old Oxana Berent in which she claimed to be the victim. Smyth said a combination of video evidence, forensics and police interviews led authorities to believe that there were no nefarious outside perpetrators.

I am hugely disappointed and frankly angry that this family has used hate and racism in such a disingenuous way,” Smyth said Wednesday. “In doing so they have allowed cynicism to creep into this discussion, cynicism that trivializes genuine victims of hate, cynicism that risks reinforcing stereotypes that the Jewish community here locally and throughout the world have fought hard to dispel.”

Is there anything lower than starting a thread disguised as concern for Fake attacks on Minorities?

I don't think there is anything particularly significant in this report other than it evidences that every community is capable of producing idiots.

No point to this thread. One family in a world of 7,000,000,000 may have lied about an attack.

This isnt the only example. A Jewish American was arrested some time ago in Israel for making bomb hoaxes against Jewish places of worship in the US.

there is at least an even chance if not more of these cases mostly being self inflicted.



12-year-old arrested for drawing dozens of swastikas on Queens school playground
Youth charged with aggravated harassment for anti-Semitic writing, which included the phrases ‘Heil Hitler’ and ‘no Jews allowed’




A Jewish man has been accused of spray-painting swastikas on his own house after he reported the incident to police as a hate crime.

I think Israel is staging some of these false flag attacks in order to pressure Jews to move to the settlements in the West Bank. Israeli ministers have repeatedly referenced such incidents as an argument for emigration. An Israeli Jew was actually arrested in Israel on charges of making threats to Jewish institutions in the US some time ago.

leftist media incitement is a better reason i think
