Winnipeg Jewish Review receives antisemitic email that Editor suspects is similar/same to new round of Antisemitic posters in downtown Winnipeg

by Rhonda Spivak, October 13, 2012

The Winnipeg Jewish Review received an email on Thursday that I suspect is likely to be the same or very similar to the new round of anti-Semitic posters that were discovered in downtown Winnipeg  on a pole in the middle of Broadway. (I suspect it because I have not had an opportunity to view the new posters)

The Winnipeg Free Press has reported on this new incident at :

http://winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/local-religious-group-frustrated-over-police-response-to-anti-semitic-posters-1.994702

Although neither media outlet has given the text of the new posters, it is clear from the Winnipeg Free Press
article that the new posters cross off the names of the 13 people named on the last set of posters.
The text received in an email to the Winnipeg Jewish Review refers to these names as needing to be
terminated, and in that sense could be seen as threatening. The email was sent to
[email protected] email.

The text of the email also uses the phrase "Never Again" which is the phrase commonly used by Holocaust educators and community leaders in saying that we ought to ensure the Holocaust never happens again. The writer in my view is is clearly using Holocaust terminology, by using the phrase "Never Again".

Here is the text of the email received by the Winnipeg Jewish Review ( Note: at the bottom of the email received by the Winnipeg Jewish Review there was  a link to an article published in another publication which has called on Mayor Katz and Phil Sheegl to resign):

$chitler's List targeted for Termination

NEVER AGAIN!
 
Never again must cliques, corruption & organized crime be allowed to subvert our democracy! A clear code of ethics and conduct must be created for the mayor, councillors & administrators to follow.
 
$chitler's List
Sam Katz
Phil Sheegl

Robert Shindleman
Sandy Shindleman
Robert Akman
David Asper
Gail Asper
Leonard Asper
Earl Barish
Brian Knepper
Richard M. Leipsic
Arni Thorsteinson
David Wolinsky
 
 
 
Our next mayor must have absolutely no tolerance for corruption. His/her first mandate will be to clean house at City Hall and introduce a motion of 2-term limits for mayors, councillors and administrators. This motion will illustrate who subscribes to the principle of public service and who's in it for the money.
 

We refuse to become the next Laval!

 

For those wanting to know what the Laval reference may refer to go to:

The Winnipeg Jewish Review will continue to report on this story as it develops.

 Update: I have had an opportunity to see  a copy of the new poster and it is th esame wording as I received in this email.
