Our reader “The Lone Ranger” wrote a very thoughtful response about the recent despicable murder of a British soldier by two Muslim terrorists:
“As a former British soldier now living in Canada, this horrific, cowardly murder of private Lee Rigby in his own country by two Islamofascist monsters breaks my heart.
When I left the UK for Canada in 1994, I could see what was coming down the pipeline. The last strong leader of the UK, Margaret Thatcher, was replaced by weak, spineless men like John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and now David Cameron. We watched as Britain unravelled under political correctness, EU membership (with its many suffocating “human rights” laws), and an out-of-control immigration policy. In order to understand this cowardly murder of Mr. Rigby, one has to consider the fact that Britain has suffered from a catastrophic loss of national identity over the past 20 years to the point where many Britons now refer to themselves as “strangers” in their own country. In the past decade, over two million young Britons have emigrated to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and even Spain. They are fed up with the ever-increasing cost of electricity, gasoline, basic grocery items, the imminent collapse of the national health care system and the lack of job opportunities.
Britain now has Sharia banking, sharia butchers & fishmongers, sharia school meals and even sharia patrols in some London neighbourhoods, where gangs of Muslim youths patrol the streets to ensure that no-one is playing loud music, men aren’t walking home with alcohol from the local liquor store, and women are “appropriately” covered. All these rules are aimed at non-Muslims, of course. In 2010, the End London Gay Pride event was cancelled out of fear of inflaming tensions with local Muslims. The organizer, the notorious homosexual activist, Peter Tatchell, laughingly invited local Muslim leaders to march with him in a united campaign against “homophobia & Islamophobia.” Although the local Muslim leaders ignored Tatchell’s ridiculous invitation, he still “respected” their decision. Yet, 90% of all gays bars and clubs in London have been shut down due to growing Muslim populations in some areas, and one such pub, the George & Dragon in London, was raised by a gang of 30 Muslim youths in 2010 who smashed up the interior and beat up the patrons within.
Also in 2010, long before the murder of Lee Rigby, angry Muslims were jeering and throwing insults at British soldiers in Luton, north of London, during their homecoming parade. One has to wonder why they are even living in the UK, regardless if many were born there, if the country is such an evil place to live in:
Going back to the London bombing of 2005, otherwise known as 7/7, two of the bombers had received around over $750,00 in government benefits. While left wing detractors claim that the reason for Muslim terrorism in the UK is due to poverty and “exclusion”, it should be noted that the two individuals who attempted to crash a Jeep loaded with home-made explosives into Glasgow airport in Scotland in 2007, were educated and well financed. Bilal Abdulla was a physician and his friend Kafeel Ahmed was an engineering student.
There is no question that Britain is undergoing a huge cultural shift, and for the worse. Perhaps the most bewildering aspect of this is the fact that the UK takes in 250,000 immigrants and refugees annually; about the same as Canada. Yet Britain is barely one-third the size of the Province of Alberta with a population of 65.2 million people and growing.
Nowhere is this more evident than in Britain’s public school system, where in the town of Gladstone, 358 out of 440 pupils at a local primary school speak Punjabi Urdu at home, 23 speak Dari (the official language of Afghanistan), while there are also 15 Lithuanians and 11 Latvians. At least the Latvians and Lithuanians are Europeans and will integrate quickly. Only one student speaks English as a first language. Muslim only schools are now commonplace, as Muslim parents do not want their children to be educated in “morally questionable” schools. Indeed, in the city of Bristol, Two primary schools have withdrawn storybooks about same-sex relationships after strong objections from Muslim parents. Earlier objections from Christian parents were met with threats of legal action against them for “homophobia.”
The recent decision by Britain’s Parliament to legalize same-sex marriage was met by a furious protest from 400 Imams. The 30 ro so Muslim MPs who voted in favour of the legislation have since been denounced by the Imams as “apostates;” a very serious charge in Islam. Not all Muslims are extremists of course, and many Muslim leaders in the UK have strongly denounced the murder of Lee Rigby as completely “un-Islamic.”
In closing, some American commentators asked why Private Rigby was unarmed. The truth is, almost all Britons are unarmed. In 1996, the former prime minister, Tony Blair, disarmed the entire population of all handguns and rifles over .22 calibre after a mass shooting at a primary school in Dunblane, Scotland. By 2007, gun crime in the UK had increased by 87%, with 237 shootings in London alone. The criminals, of course, do not care what the law dictates, and many UK cities today have large areas controlled by gangs armed with everything from handguns to Mac-10 machine guns. In the meantime, coppers still walk the beat unarmed, and the rest of the population hide behind locked doors and burglar alarms, completely defenceless against violent, armed criminals. And this is a country that does not even allow members of its own Olympic shooting team to practise in their own country! They have to travel to Norway, France or Switzerland to train.
Indeed, the first police officers who responded to the 999 emergency call when Private Rigby was being murdered, arrived 10 minutes later and were unarmed. An armed response vehicle (ARV) arrived 14 minutes later and shot both murderers. By then Lee was dead. One of the witnesses stated that Lee’s blood was running down the road “like a river.” That comment is a chilling reminder of the prophetic speech given by the late British conservative MP, Enoch Powell, who stated as far back as 1968, that large scale immigration from non-white countries would lead to utter catastrophe and a breakdown of society.
‘‘AS I look ahead (immigration), I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’.’’
Never, ever think, that this will not happen in Canada or the USA. It is only a matter of time.”
On May 21 I attended a lecture titled “Alarming Truths: Subversion and Security Threats to Our Society” delivered by the US strategic policy and intelligence expert Clare Lopez, a former operations officer with the CIA (the event was organized by Toronto’s Speakers Action Group).
It wasn’t a cheery event – the whole point of the lecture was to explain the threats we are facing as a society and to warn that many of us choose to ignore them at our own peril. There was something ominous in the dark picture of imminent danger painted by Clare Lopez through dozens of facts. That ominous feeling took a shape the next day when two Muslim savages beheaded a British soldier in London. It showed the inevitable result of our refusal to deal with the threats.
Clare Lopez covered most of the same topics that Pamela Geller talked in Toronto over a week ago. However, the delivery was very different – they spoke about the same Islamic cancer, but Pamela talked with the emotion of a family member discussing the cancer of a relative. Clare, on the other hand, sounded more like a physician clinicly describing the advancement of the same cancer, but of course the troubling impact on the listeners was the same.
She specifically stated that all the facts she shared were publicly accessible (for those willing to look for them), there was nothing classified.
Clare said in the beginning that the main problem we deal with is one of the basic pillars of Islam – jihad. It is the foundation of the activities of the “axis of jihad” – Iran, Hezbollah and al-Qaeda. Jihad is an obligatory action for all Muslims everywhere and in every era, which will end only when all the world is under Allah rule alone.
A lot has been written to figure out what we have done to deserve the Muslim hatred. Writers and journalists have been looking for years to find our shortcomings as a society. The sad truth is that the reason is our very existence, they see a dangerous influence of the free societies, which stands in the way of the universal Caliphate and shariah law. Jihad , as a tool of that offensive, is global, organized and encompasses nation states and sub-national groups. The mission is to overthrow non-shariah governments by force, targeting all “enemies” regardless of there they are. There is absolutely nothing we can do to accommodate Muslims demands other than complete surrender.
Islamists had always been very open about those goals. Al-Zawahiri said shortly after Obama was elected that he will be facing a jihadi awakening Renaissance, which is shaking the foundations of the Muslim world.
The threat is complex, dangerous and affects the whole world. In order to confront it, a long-term counter jihad strategy is urgently required. It should include education, understanding, and acknowledgement and will not be effective without an integrated international socio-political plan covering all diplomatic, economic, intelligence, legal, and military aspects of the problem.
At this time in history the main forces pushing jihad are Iran, Hezbollah, and Al-Qaeda, which work very actively and their attack is imminent in North America, as the intelligence sources show.
The jihad indoctrination starts at an early age. It is common to teach Muslim children at schools and mosques to hate. Clare Lopez gave an example with curriculum from a Toronto Imam that taught jihad warfare and Islamic Jew-hatred. Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi supports interfaith dialogue and at the same time demands death for apostasy and child marriage. The curriculum is derived directly from the Koran, Sunna, and sharia. That is the result of multiculturalism and cultural relativism.
There was a similar case at Lady Evelyn Alternative School (Ottawa), which used Farsi language textbooks authorized by the Iranian Ministry of Education. They glorified child ‘martyrdom’ and anti-Semitism. What must be done in such cases? Many people, even Muslims, have taken notice and reported that curriculum to school boards and the RCMP.
That extremist Muslim infection has affected even the government institutions. Recently free speech has been under fire in Canada: on May 13 a speech by Pamela Geller at Thornhill Synagogue was cancelled by the rabbi after York police threatened his chaplain position. The officer who did that was responsible for diversity, equity and inclusion, yet that didn’t include free speech.
The accusations against Pamela Geller were totally baseless. Lopez said that it’s enough to recall Aqsa Pervez (the Canadian honour killing victim) and what Pamela did in her memory. Even though her initiative for a memorial was refused because ISNA owns all plots in Meadowvale Cemetery in Brampton, Ontario, the memorial was finally placed in a lovely grove in Israel.
CAIR-Canada is one of the main organizations battling for shariah in Canada. In November 2012, CAIR-Canada’s Amira Elghawaby (author, journalist, teacher, and Muslim Brotherhood operative) urged Muslims to use the Canadian multiculturalism and non-discrimination laws to defeat the Canadian secular legal system and insinuate shariah instead.
We are the target – the Islamic jihad presence throughout the Americas reflects Iranian regime policy to export revolution. That happened over many years and through several organizations. In 1980s-1990s Hezbollah rode vector of Lebanese Shiite emigration to South America. In the 2000s Iran’s diplomatic initiatives opened new opportunities for terror ties to cartels, gangs, and organized crime. The threat is not hypothetical, it is mature, robust, and is here now.
Iran is the focus of tension and threat across the Middle East through many different actions: nuclear weapons program; terror sponsorship; genocide threats vs. Israel; arming, funding, training Iraqi terror; narcotics trade and Taliban support in Afghanistan.
Its purpose is to influence Western governments, buy time for a nuclear program, increase geopolitical influence, and confront Israel. Its immediate objectives in the USA are to avoid harsh, coercive measures or attack; remove sanctions and unfreeze assets (imposed under the Iran Sanctions Act of 2008); remove terror designations (IRGC, banks); gain recognition, status for the regime without offering any concessions.
One of its tools is the Supreme Council for Iranians Living Abroad, formed in 2000, headed by the Iranian President. The goal is to win academic sympathizers; law enforcement; local Arab, Lebanese and Muslim communities; National security agencies; media and mosques. In Canada Iran has a fifth column, which operates in the information battle space and attempts to control educational institutions like the already mentioned Toronto East End Madrassah and the Ottawa Lady Evelyn Alternative School.
The Iranian ‘outreach’ in Canada also includes influence operations targeting the Iranian diaspora, and the Toronto Center for Iranian Studies, which was an Iranian front facility. It is suspected that Hamid Mohammadi, Iranian ‘cultural counselor’, likely had other “responsibilities”.
Al-Qaeda also has its presence in Canada. The recently uncovered VIA Rail terror plot, sponsored by the Al-Qaeda Shura Council in Iran, was preceded in August 2010 by the Ottawa parliament terror plot and earlier in 2006 by the Toronto 18. The accused in the railway attack plot (which the US media ignored) Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jasser worked for the Al-Qaeda Shura Council in Iran. Essenghaier declared in court he did not recognize Canadian law, but only shariah.
There is a strong evidence of an Al-Qaeda – Iran alliance. Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri met the top Iranian leadership in Sudan in 1991. Bin Laden met Imad Mughniyah (prominent Iranian intelligence operative active in Hezbollah) in Iran and Sudan – wanted his explosives expertise. Iran tasked Mughniyah and Hezbollah to train Al-Qaeda. Later al-Zawahiri established personal relationship with the Iranian intelligence and the Qods force. The 9/11 Commission implicated Mughniyah and Iran in the 9/11 attacks. The 9/11 hijackers transited Beirut and Iranian territory; Mughniyah shared a flight with some of them from South America to Beirut in November 2000.
That developed a jihad alliance – Osama bin Laden was impressed with the Beirut bombings and the suicide bomber concept. According to the 9/11 Commission Report, the IRGC/Qods Force, Hezbollah/Mughniyeh set up 11 training camps for explosives training. The ties between Iran and Sudan expanded to Somalia – the alliance was behind the Somali warlord Aideed in 1993.
The same report also stated: “In October 2000, a senior operative of Hezbollah [Imad Mughniyah] visited Saudi Arabia to coordinate activities there. He also planned to assist individuals in Saudi Arabia in traveling to Iran during November. A top Hezbollah commander [Mughniyah] and Saudi Hezbollah contacts were involved.”
The Iran connection was confirmed by a court in the little-known Havlish Case. It was started by widows of people who perished in the 9/11 attack, who were not satisfied with the government’s investigation. Clare Lopez was an expert witness in the case. The government tried to cover up the proceedings, two of the witnesses were threatened and had to be taken to safety until the end of the trial.
Despite that, in December 2011 Judge George Daniels, Southern District NY, ruled that Iran provided “direct and material support” to Al-Qaeda in the 9/11 attack. The mainstream media completely ignored the findings.
IRGC and Qods Force, which deal with the Islamic expansion, have their role codified in the Iranian constitution as defenders of the revolution and in charge of the expansion abroad. They control all weapons of mass destruction, like nuclear arms and missiles. They have extensive liaisons abroad and own a large segment of Iran’s economy (over 30%). They have played a key role in the Iran-Iraq war due to their fervor and ideological fanaticism.
They and the IRGC comander Jafari directly command the Hezbollah terror cells. Qods Force has a global mission implemented by its 21,000 personnel.
Another player in Iran’s jihad is VEVAK – an intelligence institution with a wide reach. They have a virtual carte blanche on tactics and are provided with practically unlimited funds. VEVAK is under the Ministry of Intelligence and Security, but that is a ministry only in name, it is under the direct control of the Supreme Leader. It has a secret budget and no legal accountability. Up to 30,000 officers and support staff work for it, it is one of the largest in the Middle East. It’s responsible for protecting the regime and dealing with enemies (through assassinations, terror, and kidnappings).
Hezbollah is an arm of those organizations. It used to receive about $1 Billion a year after 9/11, now the amount they get is less. The Iranians operate smuggling networks for arms, drugs, explosives and use the embassies diplomatic pouches. Hezbollah is under direct Iranian control and funding.
That is clear from their political platform (February 1985):
“We view the Iranian regime as the vanguard and a new nucleus of the leading Islamic state in the world. We abide by the orders of one single wise and just leadership, represented by “Wali Faqih” and personified by Khomeini… Whoever offends the Muslims, offends in fact the body of our Umma, and we shall therefore endeavor to stand up against this threat, guided by a legitimate ruling and an all-embracing political doctrine determined by the leader, i.e. Wilayat al-Faqih.”
Hezbollah is an immediate threat. They work with Al-Qaeda, Iran, (what was known as) KGB, the North Koreans, narco traffickers, organized crime, and Syria. They also deal with explosives research and development, training, money laundering, weapons smuggling, and forged documents. They have a long rap sheet of terror before Al-Qaeda appeared and joint terror missions after that.
Other than the current leaders, like Nasralla, who have deep connections with Iran – it is necessary to mention again Mughniya, who was their most effective terror operative. He was assassinated by Mossad in Damascus in February 2008. For 30 years he was the head of Iran’s worldwide terror operations. 9/11 commission implicated Iran in attacks in part because of Mughniya’s involvement. Hezbollah promised revenge for his death.
In 2003 the former CIA Director George Tenet testified that 12 Hezbollah cells were operating in the USA. Hezbollah has sleeper cells in Canada. In June 2008 the US and Canadian intelligence warned that the Hezbollah sleeper cells had been activated. Their purpose is to strike Jewish targets in revenge for Mughniya’s killing.
Hezbollah is also increasing its presence in South America through support of criminal groups and anti-American regimes.
Under the regime of Hugo Chavez they widened their presence in Venezuela, with the purpose to expand their operations (in the past they were limited to Argentina bombings like the Jewish community Center in 1994 , and the Israeli Embassy in 1992, both in Buenos Aires).
Iran also has a direct military presence in Venezuela: Parchin Chemical Industries (produces explosive propellant); Qods Aeronautics Industries; Kimia Sanat (building unmanned aerial vehicles); Iranian Offshore Engineering Construction Co. (sanctioned for work on the Fordow enrichmnet site, operating on Paraguana Peninsula, where the Iranian IRGC Construction battalion is building in-ground missile silos).
Hezbollah is also involved in banking on Venezuela’s Margarita Island, where they have a finance center. It is also linked to the Mexican drug cartels to use their criminal trafficking channels into the USA. They are involved in human smuggling as well. In 2008-2010, according to the US intelligence and sheriffs’ information, over 180,000 illegals have entered the USA, including Afghans, Egyptians, Iranians, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Sudanese and Yemenis, possibly including terrorists.
In February 2011 a Lebanese Canadian Bank was identified by the US government as a Hezbollah money laundering front.
Iran and its proxies are also very interested in obtaining military equipment. The US-Canada Hezbollah network sought laser-range finders, aircraft-analysis software, GPS gear, night-vision goggles, blasting equipment, and mine-detection devices. In Colombia they trade in US military weapons stolen in Iraq, traded by Hezbollah with FARC for cocaine to sell in the USA.
Those forces even infiltrated the US government. A good example is the Prouty case. Nadia Nadim Prouty (nee al-Aouar) was a Hezbollah spy who penetrated both CIA and FBI. Despite her proven family terrorist ties and fraudulent citizenship, she was given security clearances. When discovered, she wasn’t even deported.
There are many such disturbing cases of willful blindness displayed by the media and the government. So far, they have stubbornly refused to discuss the Iran-Hezbollah role in the 9/11 attacks despite the strong evidence (see for example http://iran911case.com ).
The attack from Iran or its proxies is imminent and will be triggered by possible Israel or US strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities or the fall of Bashar al-Assad or Iran judges US susceptible to coercion, deterrence.
In the end Clare Lopez mentioned the difficulties in handling the jihadist attacks. The Obama administration is less and less willing to acknowledge the danger to the USA. They are reluctant to use the terms terror and terrorism and obfuscate their links with Islam. The study materials for the army and the intelligence forces are purged from criticism of Islam. The purge affects personalities as well – people like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are less likely to be used and the government even hires as experts on Islam and terrorism people who have connections with the Muslim Brotherhood.
It’s not a pretty situation, but this puts the burden of change on the ordinary people, who are the direct victims of the failed government policies. It is very unlikely that things will get better without their pressure, which can eventually influence the politicians.

Malaysia has been lauded as a “moderate” Muslim country. Every time I hear that I have a hard time keeping a straight face – the statement is ridiculous. Malaysian Muslims are the same like all others, although they can maintain a more civilized façade.
The latest proof is the misfortune of Kewpie Corporationfrom Japan. They produce great mayonnaise (available even in Canada). According to Asahi Newspaper in 2010 they started selling their product in Malaysia. After passing the test and getting halal certification, they ran into an unexpected problem. It turned out the government didn’t like their log – the little doll shown in the picture. It has barely noticeable wings. So it is considered an angel, which contradicts the Islamic requirement not to depict idols.
The company was given two years to change the logo, which they have used since the 1920s. Faced with the temptation to catch the Malaysian market, Kewpie is willing to change its logo.
Maybe there are other reasons – like the desire to keep the employees alive. The Muslims, who went totally berserk over a few cartoons a few years ago, can do exactly the same over a little angel drawing. Protecting your workers from being hacked to death by a crowd of deranged Malaysian Muslims is probably worth the change.
This proves again what demented cult Islam is. Its followers can’t create anything useful other than riots and new complaints. Rationality, tolerance and common sense are totally foreign to those ragheads.
Way to go, Malaysia!

The prolonged love affair of the progressive British elites with the Muslim barbarism keeps bearing its poisonous fruits. A few hours ago London was shocked by an unspeakable attack. Two Muslims attacked with machetes a soldier, hacked him to death and even chopped off his head. (Details at BCF)
The most disturbing part was that they did it in a broad day light. They didn’t try to escape and were more than willing to defend their actions in front of everybody who would listen. There was nothing abnormal or unusual in their behaviour.
They were just doing in their own way what their imams have taught them in the mosques – that the kafirs’ lives are worthless and they need to be exterminated or converted in the name of establishing the Caliphate. Of course the media would make the “clever” distinction that the imams are the “moderates” and the two murderous savages have somehow perverted their teachings.
However, it becomes more and more difficult to hide the truth from the ordinary people. Regardless of how creative the media spin is, it is clear that the imams and the terrorists are the two sides of the same coin. One can’t exist without the other.
The root cause that everybody is trying to ignore is Islam. A death cult founded by a desert thug and pedophile… A cult which has no place in the civilized world… Of course, there are Muslims who try to reform that cult and make it more respectable, but their influence so far is so minuscule mostly because they have to focus their energy on trying to stay alive.
Islam has no place in the West. The sooner we realize that, the fewer beheadings we will be witnessing in our streets…
The dreaded Pamela Geller event came and went and the carefully crafted Canadian multicultural Tower of Babel survived it (that tower doesn’t need anybody’s push, it is quietly self-destructing from within). The doom and gloom predictions that her “inflammatory” speech will divide the country didn’t come true.
Over the years she had been the target of such a consistent demonization that after listening to her critics, you may expect to see Lucifer’s twin sister. Nothing is further from the truth – the first impression she made on me was that she is an open, optimistic, what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of person. Not a trace of snobbery or “hate speech” – every statement she makes is based on facts (which doesn’t mean much in Canada, where telling the truth could be a crime according to the human rights commissions). Pamela also has two other things going for her – enthusiasm and eloquence, which help her easily convince you in her opinions.
The talk took place at the Toronto Zionist Centre. In the afternoon the Facebook page of the event had only 61 confirmed attendees, but the word of mouth reached far beyond Facebook, because the crowd of people willing to see Pamela exceeded the capacity of the large hall. The organizers had to open another large room on the third floor, where people could watch her talk on a big screen. People still had to be turned away for the lack of space.
I am sure that Pamela’s enemies also contributed to the popularity of her talk. The Zionist Centre wasn’t the first choice as a venue – the event’s original location was in the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill. But then Insp. Ricky Veerappan of the York Regional Police visited its rabbi (Rabbi Kaplan) and threatened him with dismissal from his position as a police chaplain, if he let her speak in the synagogue. The reason – Geller’s ideas contradicted the local police values, which for some strange reason were identical to the values of two vile Khomeinist organizations operating in the same area.
On the day of the event we witnessed a new twist – an organization going under the bombastic name “Toronto Board of Rabbis” issued a press release condemning Pamela Geller. I have never heard of them, but my sources told me that they are a group of about 40 people from two synagogues. Thanks to Bernie Farber from the now-defunct Canadian Jewish Congress, who promoted the press release and whole-heartedly supported it, I have the text.
Among other things, the learned rabbis said:
The TBR is a strong supporter of freedom of speech for all, including Ms. Geller. Ms. Geller’s voice and message are already well known here in Canada and beyond. There was no sense in inviting her here to Toronto to speak before a Jewish audience. Sadly the only sure result of this event will be increasing tensions within the Jewish community and between Jews and Muslims in Toronto.
The TBR, which represents rabbis from all denominations of Judaism, wishes to make clear to all that it finds the invitation distasteful, just as it finds Ms. Geller’s views distasteful. We dissociate ourselves from the actions of the radical fringe Jewish group that extended the invitation. We call for more events here in Toronto that will build up friendship and understanding between local Jews and Muslims.
After paying lip service to freedom of speech, they say that Ms. Geller has spoken enough, everybody knows her and she shouldn’t be speaking in Toronto. What pathetic arrogance! It sounds like Pamela will single-handedly ruin the flourishing love between Jews and Muslims in Toronto. Never mind that the extremist imams invited to every Islamic conference despise Jews.
The “radical fringe Jewish group” is obviously JDL-Canada. That “fringe group” is one of the very few, which confront Muslim fanaticism face to face on the street, while those rabbis hide like mice in their synagogues and limit their thunder to writing half-baked press releases. At last year’s Al-Quds day at Queen’s Park a huge crowd of fanatics carried Hezbollah flags, pictures of Khomeini and anti-Israeli signs, while chanting “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”. Two idiots from Neturei Karta (are they members of the Board of Rabbis?) were paraded around like gypsy dancing bears to demonstrate the Jewish support for the destruction of Israel.
The only group that confronted them was the JDL, with the support of Christians, Hindus, and secular Iranians.
Pretending that everything could be resolved with “friendship events” is naïve. No matter how many halal food tastings or school bus trips to Niagara Falls they organize, nobody is willing to face the issue of the future of Israel in a real discussion. And organizing boring interfaith dialogues won’t help either, because the bearded imams that they try to “reach” don’t like Jews that much. At the same time, the “progressive” rabbis totally ignore Muslims who want to promote the Canadian values (like Salim Mansur and Raheel Raza from Muslims Facing Tomorrow).
Anyway, if that cowardly press release came one day earlier, it could’ve attracted even more attendees.
As of the event itself – you can see it on videos. I uploaded eight videos, which show the topics Pamela Geller covered in her talk (that’s at the Blogwrath channel on YouTube). If you have time, you can watch the complete uninterrupted recording uploaded by Blazingcatfur.
The main event was preceded by a small reception, where a few people got to know Pamela Geller and many others had the opportunity to see her again.
Meir Weinstein, the National Director of JDL-Canada, introduced Pamela Geller. He thanked the police for helping to ensure the safety of the event in Toronto, although he criticized the politization of the York Regional police. Catering to the questionable values of the Khomeinist organizations operating in the area, shows a disturbing double standard. While Rabbi Kaplan was intimidated, their other (Muslim) chaplain attended without any problems a conference in Saudi Arabia organized by a group with ties to Al-Qaeda. Such troubling affiliations make the work of Pamela Geller even more important, because she is one of the few who has the courage to confront Islamic extremism.
Pamela Geller started her talk with the statement that free speech is the most basic of all freedoms. Its enemies realize that and that is their first target when they want to suppress somebody’s ideas. That’s what officer Ricky tried to do when intimidating Rabbi Kaplan. She had never experienced in the USA such a blatant anti-free speech action by the police. Similar purpose had the shameful press release written to suppress her right to share her ideas with those who are interested in them.
In the USA Obama abandoned the quest for freedom and on the international arena he supported the Muslim Brotherhood as a “moderate” group. The result was disastrous, with many governments losing power and giving way to Islamic supremacy regimes. Yet despite that, the media never criticized Obama’s actions and they are even trying to make her shut up.
That disturbing trend is not limited only to the Muslims countries. The Islamic supremacy groups are expanding their base in the USA as well. Many of them are trying to cover up their true actions. “Official” Muslim organizations like CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America have been determined to be unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation case, yet they still are considered mainstream moderates. The media create the impression that no major terrorist threats have been uncovered in the USA, but that’s a lie – every week there is an unsuccessful plot, which is almost always ignored by the media.
That happens even when we are facing catastrophic attacks, which the Obama administration cover up of the Benghazi case proves.
Pamela tries to bring awareness to those issues through her ad campaigns, which are demonized in the same way as her other work.
Despite the media negativity, ordinary people are very much aware of the real problems and respond positively to her campaigns. In a recent case, Islamist organizations paid to run ads demonizing Israel. She had to run a counter-campaign to state the facts. She is not and has never been anti-Muslim – her main target is the Islamic savagery, which affects everybody, including most Muslims. She has worked for years to save Muslim girls from abuse and honor killings.
Jihad is the main element of that savagery. Recently the Islamists in the USA tried to whitewash that concept through another ad campaign. They showed jihad as an innocent desire for improvement, which is far from the truth. She responded with her own campaign based on the jihad statements and actions of prominent Muslim terrorists and politicians.
That was also rejected by the “progressives”. The most curious case was in San Francisco, where the homosexuals objected to her ads showing how gays are treated in most Muslim countries. The Muslims, who voice their objections against extremism in the USA are ignored or treated with hostility. A few years ago a small group of Muslims organized a demonstration to condemn the “underwear bomber”. Their leader received three death fatwas from Muslim extremists for organizing the event.
That fight is very difficult, but only the ordinary people can really take a stand for their freedoms. They love their country and the way they live and are ready to defend it. Most politicians are not reliable, because they are willing to sacrifice their principles and values for short-term gains. In the case of the Canadian victim of honor killing Aqsa Pervez, many ordinary people gave their support to restore the girl’s dignity by providing a gravestone with her name (despite the objections of her family that killed her).
In the end Pamela had a long questions and answers session, during which she answered many questions from the audience. Those included her role in stopping the “Ground Zero Mosque”; the hatred of the jihadists for Israel and many more.
All in all, that was an excellent event and everybody who attended it left with more knowledge and better understanding of the problems that we face in North America.
The only terrifying thing (at least to me) was the thought that if the Khomeinists, officer Ricky, the “Rabbi Board” and their protectors from the Human Rights Inquisition have their way, we will never be able to see and listen again to passionate and informed people like Pamela Geller. All they are going to allow us to do would be to listen to the bland sermons of the political correctness, which taste worse than English porridge or goat intestines. (Is it racist to criticize food?)

Is Justin Trudeau stupid? Retarded? Naive? Or just serving somebody else’s interests? After sharing the stage with Muslim fanatics last year, he again shows his loyalty to Old Mo’s homicidal cult.
Earlier today he sent a tweet to mark Mother’s Day with a photograph of his mother and his wife attached. Out of the hundreds of their photos that he probably owns, that idiot picked one from a trip to Africa where they are dressed like veiled Muslim gargoyles.
What’s his point? Maybe he thinks the Muslim look is trendy and it should be imposed on everybody, starting from his family. Does that captivating African outfit come with the mandatory genital mutilation? This is such a perfect example of the values of the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. Perhaps his plans for the future include turning Canada into a province of Saudi Arabia.
Hey, Justin, tell your Muslim masters that we the Canadians don’t want that barbaric sharia law to control our lives. Multiculturalism is as stupid as you are.
Earlier today I received an e-mail from Philippe Karsenty sharing the news that the Israeli government at last decided to issue a report that the infamous “documentary”, in which an Arab father and son are supposedly attacked and shot at by the Israeli army, was a hoax. The report is a result of the work of numerous experts.
The movie was one of the numerous “masterpieces” of Pallywood – a prolific propaganda industry, which produces false documentaries and pictures designed to demonize Israel. The al Dura hoax is not an exception – the unarmed father and son depicted in the footage allegedly suffered many bullet wounds and the boy was reportedly killed.
Even a layman could tell that was a fake – the father was supposedly hit by 12 bullets and yet no blood is seen. Unlike other such hoaxes, this one received enormous publicity, especially after being aired by major TV networks, which didn’t bother to explain its inconsistencies.
The well-founded doubt about the movie came first from Germany, but the person, who pursued the issue relentlessly for years was the French intellectual Philippe Karsenty. The reluctance of the French television to admit that they promoted an anti-Israeli hoax brought the issue in front of the courts (the final decision is to be announced later this month).
The struggle for revealing the truth was carried on exclusively by Karsenty, with very little support from government institutions. The Israeli governments are notoriously bad in handling the PR of their country, often missing many opportunities to confront with facts the blackmail against Israel. That gives more power to the clumsily made Palestinian propaganda whose lies are not that hard to refute.
The al Dura case was treated in very much the same way. Consecutive Israeli governments tried to ignore it hoping that it eventually would go away. The only result was that the hoax spread even more and the silence of Israel was exploited by the Arabs as an admission of guilt.
The new development is a welcome change, which shows that Philippe Karsenty’s work finally receives the recognition it deserves.

Richard K., one of Canada’s “bully bloggers,” posted a few days ago an article about a course offered at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.
Thanks to him, many times before we have been alerted about some questionable and even outright bizarre ideas promoted by the education system in Ontario. This course is not an exception.
Its purpose is to present the Jewish women in a historical perspective. It’s all good and noble and the university should be proud of that initiative. But they are not that willing to share what that course teaches. When you go through the syllabus, one of the conditions that stands out is that the university doesn’t feel like sharing.
In the beginning we are warned that everybody attending should keep secret everything that’s going on:
To build an atmosphere of civility, trust, and participation, and afford reasonable privacy it is necessary and you are requested to abide by the following:
-no cells, Internet, texting
-no visitors, no auditors
It seems odd that an educational institution, which operates with public funds, would keep in the dark the public that provides the money about what exactly they are teaching. A closer look at the syllabus explains why this is happening.
For some strange reason all the lecturers teaching the course are hardcore supporters of the Palestinian extremism and not that fond of the right of Israel to exist as a separate state. In his article Richard provides the background of those speakers. I just want to add a few points.
As I said, the course is taught by several people who speak on different topics, which are not even linked to each other. There is not much of systematic thinking taught throughout (if you ignore the systematic Jew-bashing). It looks like the administration patched up something ugly in order to provide money for speakers who otherwise won’t be able to get any gainful employment.
The lecture by Sylvat Aziz scheduled for Week 1 on September 11 is supposed to provide an introduction to the course:
• Intro, The Hijra in Islamic Imagination: Current realities and Context
Documentary: Transgenders (Intersex Communities)
I am totally lost about the connection between hijra and transgenders. Unless there are some secret verses in the Koran, I don’t recall any trannies accompanying Old Mo on his flight from Mecca to Medina. Obviously, the academic idiots who run our universities, have very little concern about the facts.
One of the stars of the course is Prof. Abbie Bakan. Her contribution:
• Considerations of ‘Anti-semitism’, Racialization, and Power”
Readings: Abigail B. Bakan and Yasmeen Abu-Laban, “The Racial Contract: Israel/Palestine and Canada” Social Identities: Journal for the Study of Race, Nation and Culture, vol. 14, no.5 (September, 2008), 637-660.
That woman doesn’t even want to call Israel by its name and thinks that anti-Semitism is just a social construct. She can contribute nothing but hatred to a course on the Jewish women. I saw her for the first time in 2011. At the opening night of the Israeli Apartheid Week 2011 her speech was entirely filled with bashing of Israel and the “Zionists”.
Compared to the other star of the opening night – Judy Rebick – Abbie Bakan is not a very pleasant person. While Judy delivers her Jew-bashing with the bubbly enthusiasm of a village idiot, Abbie looks and speaks like a guy forced to speak after eating a case of lemons.
If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve pitied the students who had to endure her presence in the classroom. However, after learning what is really going on at Queen’s University, I am convinced that Abbie Bakan is exactly what many students want.
Her course is just one of the pathetic results caused by imposing of the policy of “diversity”. That once great university has turned into a stinky cesspool, where they are supposed to take seriously and with respect any weird culture or worldview.
Thus Islamization has paved the way for the poorly veiled attack on the Western values. One of the issues of their magazine – onQ – for 2010, which creates the impression that only the minorities are worth writing about, opens with an article by a smiley hijab Muslima.
She casually states that the Scottish tradition of the university is not good and has to be changed. After whining about her Muslim “prayer space” being defaced, she pompously states she joined an organization willing to change Queen’s. (Was that the Muslim Brotherhood?) Of course, all those changes are in the name of building a “better community”.
Apparently, the advancement of the Islamic ferociousness on the Queen’s campus has been unstoppable since then. Recently a student attempted to exercise his right to free speech by placing a “wall”, where students could write whatever they wanted.
They refused to provide their reasons, other than vaguely stating that it happened because of “hate speech”. Since “Free Palestine!” is probably not considered hate speech at that place, we may take a look at another statement.
“Mohammad was a pedophile; he fucked 9-year olds.”
Regardless of the crude language, this is a factual statement. All Muslim scriptures proudly state that he married a 6-year old girl and had sex with her when she turned 9. From most points of view he was a repulsive pedophile. Islam is the only religion, which won’t condemn that pedophilia.
It looks like the Mohammad remark pissed off the Muslim fanatics on campus. They started discussing ways to take away the free speech wall, as their Facebook conversation shows:
Those rabid Muslimas have no problem shutting down anything that disagrees with their cult. And they are proud of that:
“I vandalized it as best as I could. Tearing it down and the campus cons will turn this on our head and make it seem like we are violent activists that university will take action against – not effective, unfortunately.”
And it seems that they managed to get the Human Rights Commission involved. There is no way to lose, because the human rights inquisitors are the most trusted ass-lickers of the Muslim fanaticism.
And I see that the campus “cons” are the only ones expected to confront a bunch of fanatics, who have respect for nothing but their stone-age cult. But even the “cons” couldn’t do anything, because the administration took the side of the cultists.
So that’s it, folks – if you thought that the course was some kind of an aberration, think again. In the current atmosphere, which defines Queen’s University, every anti-Jewish and pro-terrorist speaker will have a large and very attentive audience.
When you think that the same is going on in York University in Toronto (among other places), it’s hard to ignore the fact that the people who run and attend those universities (supposed to be the brightest) make all possible efforts to undermine our civilization by supporting destructive ideologies.
With such “bright” people in charge our future doesn’t look very bright.

I received the message below in my e-mail. It is from Prof. Salim Mansur, a copy of his letter sent to the chief of the York Regional Police concerning the pressure on Rabbi Kaplan to cancel Pamela Geller’s talk hosted by his synagogue. Prof. Mansur is a staunch defender of the traditional Canadian liberal democratic values. He is also one of the few Canadian Muslims, who have the courage to openly oppose the dogmas of Islam that breed extremism.
Here is his letter:
In a recent interview with CBC, when asked what he would do about terrorism, Justin Trudeau replied that he would go after the “root causes” and the issues of exclusion and alienation. As a recently elected leader of the Liberal Party maybe we should pay attention to his words.
So let’s try to look at those root causes. Last year many Muslims in the world went berserk over a YouTube movie about Old Mo. Although the movie was poorly made, it pictured accurately the “prophet” of Islam as a bloodthirsty warmonger. Many people were killed during those demonstrations and riots (mostly by their fellow Muslims).
The event in Toronto featured a large crowd of Muslim fanatics. They didn’t kill anybody, but spending time among them provided some understanding of their way of thinking. The video below shows them in action. This is the face of the Canadian multiculturalism.
Do those people are also the face of the Muslims of Canada? Most of them are dressed as if they came straight out of an Afghanistani cave. They carry anti-Semitic signs and are ready to “take care” of anybody who offends their cult. They shout incoherently like inmates from a mental institution. Is it a surprise then that some of them can take that insanity one step further and start actually fighting the “enemies of Islam”?
As I reported earlier, Pamela Geller, the outspoken activist against the Islamization of America, was scheduled to speak in Toronto on May 13. The event will still take place, but today we learned about a curious twist concerning the venue.
Rabbi Mendel Kaplan from the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue, where Geller was supposed to appear, was visited by officers from the York Regional Police. They made him an offer he couldn’t refuse – he can either host her and lose his job as a police chaplain or keep her away and keep his job. He decided to keep Geller away.
It is not a surprise that the police in Toronto is doing the dirty job of the Muslim fanatics. The political correctness has made them servants to every group of enemies of Canada, as long as they belong to an ethnic or religious minority.
You can see the interview of Meir Weinstein, in which he provides the details, but let me add a few things to that.
The Muslim center, which is located not far from that synagogue, is under the control of sympathizers of the murderous regime of Iran. Every year they mark there the anniversary of the pedophile Ayatollah Khomeini. Many celebrities from the political elite have been taking part in those hate fests, including representatives of the York police. Their former chief Armand Labarge even received an award from those fanatics:
It is beyond puzzling that the force that is supposed to protect us takes the side of the groups, which have done very little to face and expose the Muslim terrorism. The latest terror plot in Toronto involved two men, who were planning the VIA rail bombing with the help of Iranian forces.
How can we trust our government when they try to shut down a speaker, whose only “fault” is that she exposes an ideology that is trying to destroy us?
This is not the first brush of Rabbi Kaplan with the York police’s political correctness. Not so long ago he suffered a six-month ordeal being investigated for “homophobic” views. Kulanu, a Jewish homosexual group, viciously attacked his religious views, making their case to dismiss him. Eventually, the York police concluded that he did nothing wrong.
However, in the pecking order of the offendable groups the Muslims trump the homosexuals. So he can’t get away this time.
Many people agreed with his decision to cave in, but I beg to differ. He practically helped the police to suppress the free speech of a person, who has never done anything wrong. Unlike the Khomeinist barbarians, who support a homicidal regime, Pamela Geller’s opinions are based on facts about the damage done by the militant Islamism. Taking part (even indirectly) in covering those facts is not an honorable thing to do.
Moreover, even if the York police tries to fire the Rabbi, he has a very good legal case against them, because there is nothing in her presentations that is criminal or offensive to anybody (except the supporters of the militant Islam).
All these efforts of the police and their Muslim buddies are not going to bury the truth. We will find another venue for her talk.
Although cases like this one are frustrating, they are useful in outlining the real positions of the sides involved. When an institution, which has the duty to make our city safe, panders to the “hurt feelings” of a group of fanatics, who don’t even bother to take a position against terrorism, we have a problem.
Will we be able to resolve it?

Judge Jeanine Pirro has the courage to say openly what many Americans are thinking, but are afraid due to the political correctness that rules the public life in the USA. Accepting Muslim fanatics as immigrants has never been beneficial for anybody, except the anti-American Obama administration.
Falun Gong is a peaceful Buddhist sect, founded in China, which has been viciously terrorized for many years by the Chinese communist government. You can see them almost every day in front of the Chinese Consulate in Toronto quietly reminding Canada about their plight.
The Falun Gong practitioners have been a target of systematic persecution by the Chinese communists. They have been tortured, thrown in jails, maimed and killed for no other reason than their beliefs. Their organs are routinely harvested for the benefit of the cheap “Made in China” organ transplant industry, which rivals the atrocities of a Dr. Mengele.
The candlelight vigil they held last night was a silent reminder of those atrocities. Over 100 meditating practitioners sat silently along the sidewalks of St. George St. It was a heart wrenching sight – with a small candle in front of them while each was holding a picture of a victim of the Chinese brutality.
There was no chanting, no speeches – only the signs and posters they displayed were telling their sad story.
It’s a shame that the horrible treatment of Falun Gong is practically ignored in Canada (just like the plight of the Christians in the Muslim countries). Even the so-called “progressives”, who adore every South American communist or Arab terrorist, are totally indifferent to them.
To be fair, the Chinese communists are equal opportunity offenders – they do exactly the same on a much larger scale in Tibet. The genocide there continues to this day, as the Tibetan demonstration which took place earlier the same day reminded us.
And earlier today China chastised Canada for “human rights” violations at a meeting’s committee in Geneva.
We really live in an insane world.

Yesterday a Toronto Gypsy organization held a rally against Ezra Levant and his employer SUN News. They demanded that Ezra be fired and the SUN “must-carry” application be rejected. It was a serious event, because the organizers enrolled a few “heavyweights” – Borys Wrzesnewskyj, former Liberal MP, and Bernie Farber, head of the now defunct Canadian Jewish Congress.
Although the reason for the rally were a few statements about Gypsies (for which he already apologized), the speakers used the occasion to blackmail the TV station even more. We learned that they spread systematically hateful speech about the Muslim, black and Spanish communities. No evidence was presented, but the participants didn’t need it – they just enjoyed the speakers’ vitriol and the role of an offended minority, which wants more control over the media they don’t run.
You can see the highlights in the video, but I would like to add a few notes to make the issues they covered more clear.
Frankly, they lost all credibility as soon as I read the press release:
Though Mr. Levant has formally ‘apologized’ for his on-air comments, only after intense legal and public pressure, the Romani community rejects the apology because Mr. Levant has continued to use the discriminatory term ‘Gypsy’ in reference to our community.
What is wrong with the word “Gypsy”? It has been used for many centuries in the English language and the other European languages have their own words for that ethnicity. Why should they impose on us the word “Roma”?
In German a person from Germany is called “Deutsche”. The Spaniards will call him “aleman”, Russians and Bulgarians – “ghermanetz” or “nemetz”, the Turks – “aleman”, etc. etc. And I have yet to meet a German who is offended that the Americans won’t call him “Deutsche”.
Why should it be any different for the Gypsies? Changing your name doesn’t change your nature.
Besides, the word has been used by CBC, a few years ago they showed a documentary about the Gypsy crime in Western Europe called “Gypsy Child Thieves”.
It showed an unflattering but true picture of the problem. Where is the outrage against CBC? Many of the channels, which the Canadian Gypsies like more than SUN, run shows like “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and “Gypsy Sisters”. Shouldn’t they be condemned as well?
On top of that, the musicians who played at the rally came from the band “Gypsy Rebels”. Can you be any more hypocritical?
That showed the real intentions of the rally – to attack and destroy SUN TV by all means possible because it doesn’t conform to the sacred principles of political correctness.
Gina Csanyi-Robah, Executive Director, Roma Community Centre started with a fiery speech calling for Ezra’s dismissal. She complained that Ezra’s statements made the other Canadians “not like” the Gypsies. Then she added that he and others have attacked in a similar way the Muslim, black and Spanish communities. Of course, she didn’t bother to provide any evidence.
Bernie Farber was apparently chosen to play the good cop role. On the surface his soothing voice promoted tolerance toward Ezra and SUN. They apologized and we have to respect that. But then he said that words are just words. They have to do more – to show that they mean it.
The proposals that Bernie had in mind meant placing SUN TV under Gypsy control. Ezra must be re-educated by meetings with the Roma community to understand how wonderful they are (just like the intelligentsia and workers in Mao’s China). Additionally, SUN must hold regular consultations with the leaders of the Gypsy community, and take into consideration their point of view. The license of SUN (similarly to the previous case of the Arabic Al-Jazeera) should be on hold for six months until they prove they are good and don’t disseminate hatred.
It’s hard to believe that Bernie is serious, but apparently he is. What he says means that the media must be put under the control of every imaginable ethnic or other type of minority group, which could be potentially offended. This is exactly what the Muslims who tried to sue MacLean’s and Mark Steyn wanted – editorial control under the guidance of their bloodthirsty leader Mohammed Elmasry who on the old Micahel Coren show stated that every citizen of Israel is a fair target for assassination.
Borys Wrzesnewskyj started with the cheerful observation that Canada is the best country in the world, because here we celebrate multiculturalism. His parents came here to escape totalitarianism. We have to keep the harmony. As a person, who has shattered that harmony, Ezra is worse than a thief, because what a thief steals can be returned, but what Ezra said can’t be repaired. He must be sued and fired. Before, the hate speech in Canada was practiced by people like Zundel, now we have the same hatred on the airwaves spread by Ezra.
After such ridiculous words, it’s hard to believe that Borys was a Member of the Parliament. But even in that position he managed to propose insane ideas, which cost him his job – in 2006 he said that de-listing Hezbollah may help negotiate peace and lost his post as the Liberal Party’s deputy foreign affairs critic for saying it.
There is nothing wrong with having stupid ideas. The tragedy begins when people like Bernie, Gina and Borys are allowed to be in charge (and they well may be after the Supreme Court decision in the Whatcott case and the rise of Justin Trudeau). Then we may switch into a totalitarian mode, where every criticism of a minority, no matter how justified, will be sufficient to prosecute anybody for their opinions.
Is this the Canada we want?
Ezra’s monologue about the Gypsies might have been poorly worded, but it raised issues, which should be discussed, because the Gypsy crime threatens all of us. Of course not all of them are involved in it, but the problem must be addressed, despite the attempts of Gina, Bernie, and Borys to pretend that such a thing doesn’t exist.
Let’s examine briefly that reality. The claim that all Gypsies in Europe are discriminated is an exaggeration, just like Ezra’s words that most of them are involved in crime.
Gypsies who get education or work are not discriminated. And they have many opportunities – scholarships and subsidies for such minorities are provided in all countries of the European Union. The trouble is that a large part of the Gypsies are not interested in education.
Of course, there are many successful Gypsies.
The freaky guy in the picture, who generously exposes his ass to the audience, is Azis – the most popular and highest paid entertainer in Bulgaria. His singing style is “chalga” – a horrific hybrid between the Bulgarian version of the French chanson and quite repulsive Arab music. Although chalga is popular only in the Balkan Peninsula, Azis makes millions of Euro every year.
The most interesting fact about him is that he is a homosexual Gypsy transvestite. In a country like Bulgaria this means three strikes against him, yet no Gypsy activist could claim that Azis is discriminated against.
This is Prof. Alexander Chirkov, a prominent Bulgarian heart surgeon of Gypsy background. A few decades ago he did the first heart transplant in the country. Surely, he can’t match the income of Azis, but his ethnicity never stood in the way of developing his talent.
Neither of both has complained of being Gypsy. There are many other Gypsies in Eastern Europe, who have studied and have skills, which let them get good jobs. Nobody is discriminating them. Many of them can come to Canada by applying in the regular way and that’s why we never hear about them.
The problem are the rest who have been coming here as refugees from Europe. As the Canadian records show, well over 90% of them are frauds.
That’s common sense – if there are any genuine Gypsy refugees from Hungary, Bulgaria or Romania (all members of the EU) they can go to over 20 countries in Europe to claim asylum. Most of those countries are controlled by compassionate bleeding hearts and the trip will be much cheaper (a train ticket from Bulgaria to Norway costs peanuts compared to an airplane ticket to Canada). Every citizen of the Union can travel freely. However, even Sweden and Norway, which accept even the worst terrorist garbage, don’t consider Gypsies legitimate refugees.
It is much easier to go to Canada, where most people are ignorant about the European realities, and game the system.
Yes, there are significant differences between the traditional Gypsy culture in Eastern Europe and the West. The Gypsies have lived there for over 600 years and are still not integrated. It seems that something in their nomadic culture is preventing that. It’s true they have been discriminated, but the Jews had been treated the same way and despite that they prospered.
Of course, some Gypsies (like those in the rally) have the strength to break up with that culture, but many more don’t want.
These are not pictures from the Syrian war – they show an apartment building built with the good intentions to provide affordable community housing to Gypsy families. It took them about five years to break the windows, destroy the walls and sell the metal parts for scrap. The garbage is thrown from the windows.
Eventually the apartment building had to be condemned and demolished. I had hard time understanding the reason for that horrible behaviour. It’s not the poverty, because Bulgarians and Turks could be just as poor and still take much better care of their homes. It looks like the nomadic indifference to property plays a role here.
In 2009 another Bulgarian incident received world-wide attention. An 11-year old Gypsy girl gave birth – just another type of multicultural diversity, which soon we will celebrate in Canada:
Kordeza Zhelyazkova, from Sliven in Bulgaria, was still wearing her wedding dress and tiara as she was rushed to hospital, where she gave birth to 5lb 8oz Violeta.
Proudly displaying her baby, she told reporters: ‘I’m not going to play with toys any more – I have a new toy now…’
Kordeza said: ‘I didn’t know I was pregnant until my grandmother saw I had put on weight. I just thought I’d eaten too many burgers.’
Her grandmother Dida, 55, said: ‘It’s normal for our girls to have babies young. It’s our tradition. But I didn’t want it for my Kordeza – I felt she was too young.’
The child is her new toy – that explains what kind of a mother she is going to be. The frightening thing is that this is considered normal in the Gypsy culture. As of her rapist… uh… husband (19 years old), as a Gypsy he got away. Any Bulgarian, Turk or Armenian would be charged with rape and pedophilia and spend considerable time in jail, but her husband wasn’t.
Such cases are normal among the uneducated Gypsy population. And so is theft and violence.
And yet the Gypsy crime is ignored and information about it suppressed. In 2011 the Bulgarian nationalist party Ataka (Attack) published a 32-page booklet about that type of crime. The “human rights” organizations immediately tried to charge them with hate crime. The prosecutor concluded there was no case, because the whole booklet consisted of clippings from newspaper crime chronicles.
That is the problem – many Soros-funded organizations prevent real measures and encourage leniency regardless of the severity of the crimes. The “Roma integration” funding is a huge business, which provides comfortable living to countless bureaucrats and activists and just as many Gypsy kings and queens, with nothing to show for it.
Ironically, the time Gypsies came closest to integration was under communism. The Gypsy kids were forced by the police to go to school, despite their parents’ desire to pull them out. The majority of the Gypsies were employed, because of the 100% employment rate (based on the principle 5 do the work of 1). That was possible only because the communists had the absolute power to do whatever they want.
After the collapse and the destruction of the economy if Eastern Europe, the democracy is powerless to make the Gypsies part of a stable social structure.
These are the problems that we should discuss openly in Canada, because those people want to come here. Why do the Canadian Gypsies want to silence that discussion?
In the current Canadian reality, created by the likes of Gina, Bernie and Borys, I can be charged with hate speech for just pointing out those inconvenient facts.
Even in Europe they can’t cover up the reality anymore. About two years ago France deported thousands of Bulgarian and Romanian Gypsies, who built camps on its territory. Now Great Britain desperately tries to keep Bulgaria and Romania out of the Schengen agreement of free movement to avoid the possible flood of freeloaders. The next mass wave of “refugees” to Canada will be from those countries.
The Canadian Gypsies may be well established and law-abiding, but most of the newcomers are not. Those who have the skills can already apply (Canada doesn’t discriminate against anybody), the rest will come here to milk the system. Toronto paved the way by turning the city into a sanctuary city for criminals.
In the end of the event Gina Csanyi-Robah angrily yelled that the “Roma” deserve better. No, Gina, all Canadians deserve better – telling them lies and exploiting their gullibility is not a good way to make friends.

The despicable act of Muslim terrorism in Boston has already received an enormous coverage. Along with articles covering the facts, we see more and more attempts by the mainstream media to whitewash that horrific act.
They try to present the two animals that committed it as a pair of misguided nice guys, who were somehow alienated by the selfish Americans. That is not accidental – such an attitude has been deeply ingrained in the worldview of the “progressives” in the USA, Canada, and Western Europe.
Case in point – earlier today I was reading the coverage of the latest events at Blazingcatfur’s blog. One of the posts had a link to a Chechen jihadi forum – kavkazchat-dot-com (sorry don’t want to give them a link). The communication in it is entirely in Russian. The whole discussion is a vile terrorist propaganda, which revolves around the Islamic takeover of the West and Russia. Here is a taste of what they write about (translated from Russian):
And today the unbelievers try to extinguish Allah’s light; Islam is Allah’s light; Risalya of Muhammad (peace and Allah’s blessings upon him). They work to stop the spread of Islam and Allah says that they will fail. They spend an astonishing amount of money to fight Islam; and if you only think how much Allah has given to the kafirs and how many resources they control; and they waste all that on a fight with Islam. Sometimes we complain that they control the media, that they control every influential newspaper in the world, that they control every influential radio station in the world, every influential media resource, they control governments and police, the entire planet. They have all the money and we don’t have a chance to fight against them, then maybe we should surrender and use alternative means to deal with them; maybe we shouldn’t confront them, since we are not their match? Maybe we could try to use politics and diplomatic means to fight them?
But Allah said:
“Truly, the unbelievers waste their wealth to bring the others down from the path of Allah. They will spend it and then regret about it, and then they will be defeated.” (8:36).
So let them waste their money, they will be defeated through their spending, because Allah said that first they have to spend their money, and then be defeated.
That’s why we should be happy that they waste that money to fight Islam, because that shows that the Islam’s victory is imminent; the victory is already on its way.
They already talk how the war in Afghanistan and Iraq costs them more than the wars in Vietnam and Korea. The Korean War cost them $200 million. The Vietnam War – $400 million. The Iraq war cost them possibly more than $800 million; and if they continue the same way, their economy will bleed to death and that’s what the ayat talks about; and they will waste money and they will be sorry that they got involved in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, which wasn’t imposed on them, on the contrary, they themselves chose that battle, and they will be sorry about the complications they got involved in: after spending all the money, losing strength and suffering defeat.
They can’t be clearer than that. They simply want to destroy us.
However, things became more interesting when I dug deeper into the site. Look at the screenshot (click to enlarge):
It turned out the domain was registered through one of the large domain registrars by a person living in Toronto. The hosting company, which makes the spread of that Muslim terrorist propaganda possible, is Staminus Communications ( http://www.staminus.net/ ), IP: 126.96.36.199, located in a town near Fresno, CA.
What is even more frightening is that the domain has been registered in 2002, so it has been operating undisturbed for 11 years.
The information provided by sites like this one is essential for the radicalization of Russian-speaking Muslims like the Tsarnaev brothers, yet they are free to operate in countries that are targets of the Muslim terrorism.
I understand that the “progressive” software industries favour multiculturalism, but isn’t this going too far?
As this case shows, multiculturalism is a horrible idea, which gives full protection to people, whose only goal is to exterminate us.

JDL-Canada has announced that they have invited Pamela Geller to speak in Toronto on May 13, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Thornhill (technically that’s outside of Toronto’s city limits, but it is accessible).
Who is Pamela Geller?
She is one of America’s foremost fighters for free speech and traditional values. Her work is focused on preventing the influence of militant Islam on the United States.
It is important to listen to people like her, because most Canadians still live in lethargy ignoring the danger. Many of us still think that the inherent niceness of Canada puts us above any troubles. And yet the signs are all around us.
Just this month Palestine House brought to Toronto an Arab member of the Knesset, who openly advocated an armed insurrection against his country’s government. We witnessed in London (Ontario) the unraveling of a Muslim terrorist network, with at least four members (and of course the Muslim “leaders” of the town know nothing about it).
Over the last few days, the blogger Blazingcatfuruncovered extensive hate materials on the website of the Muslims of Calgary, which are supposed to be a moderate Muslim organization.
Openly manifesting their hatred for the Jews, they don’t even use the obligatory code word “Zionists” when blackmailing their targets. According to their vile propaganda, the Jews are to be blamed for all misfortunes in the world and that view is even supported with quotes from the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” From the writings of the Calgary Muslims becomes very clear that jihad is a continuous war against Christians and Jews.
It is ironic that those people can preach their hatred with impunity, while Pamela Geller is persecuted – different organizations of American Muslim fanatics have been trying (and often succeeding) to shut down her public appearances and campaigns. The notorious Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization which tries to silence everybody who differs from the leftist agenda, has blacklisted her.
And they have to be afraid – Pamela Geller’s work is really extensive. She is the founder, editor and publisher of Atlas Shrugs.com and President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA).
Among her books are The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (co-authored with Robert Spencer and with a foreword by Ambassador John Bolton); Freedom or Submission: On the Dangers of Islamic Extremism and American Complacency; and Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (WND Books). She is also a regular columnist for World Net Daily, the American Thinker, Breitbart.com and other publications.
She has been involved not only in writing, but also in practical work in defense of the victims of Muslim fanaticism, like potential targets of honour killings and apostates from Islam. She has organized ad campaigns throughout the United States to bring awareness about those dangers (naturally, the Muslim extremists and their proxies like CAIR have fiercely fought to silence her).
No matter what your political views are, it is essential to hear what she has to say. The dangers she deals with would not go away, if we pretend that they don’t exist.
More details about the event will follow.
I have often said that Canada is slowly moving down the way of the European political correctness. We are dominated by politicians, who believe that their utopian and delusional views can replace reality.
The campaign for electing a new provincial legislature in British Columbia has just started and it already claimed the first victim of the local political correctness. The NDP campaign was “forced” to drop Dayleen Van Ryswyk, a candidate who authored a series of “unacceptable” online comments against French Canadians and “First Nations”.
Some sources, in the typical Canadian “holier-than-thou” tradition, called her comments “racist”. In Canada such statements must always be taken with a grain of salt. After all Van Ryswyk is a business woman who operates in the real world, unlike the lawyer-turned-politician type, which defines the bland Canadian political landscape.
What exactly did she say?
The “offensive” statements were made in 2009 as posts in an online discussion. Here is the first post:
“It’s not the status cards, it’s the fact that we have been paying out of the hose for generations for something that isn’t our doing,” reads a section from a post, dated Feb. 11, 2009 under the subject heading “Re: Strip them of the Status Card.”
“If their ancestors sold out too cheap it’s not my fault and I shouldn’t have to be paying for any mistake or whatever you want to call it from MY hard earned money.”
What’s wrong with that statement? Nothing. It came from a representative of that part of our society, which has been taxed to death to provide money for the people on the reserves who prefer to sit on their lazy asses instead of starting some real work. They may feel inconvenienced, because the likes of Grand Thief Theresa Spence steal tens of millions of dollars from the taxpayers’ money from the reserve handouts (and then ask for more), but that is their internal problem.
How much longer would our politicians ignore that truth, which is visible to everybody who has even a rudimentary understanding of what is going on in Canada?!
Another post made on Feb. 16, 2010, under the topic “Re: “More French in the ceremonies” targets the French language:
“Thank God I’m not the only one that was shocked at the French first at the ceremonies … what the heck??? This is B.C. … we speak English here … this isn’t Quebec. I travel quite a lot and when I say we are from Canada I’m always asked if we are French Canadian or western. I always say … hell no … we aren’t French Canadians. Seems the only group of people universally hated around the world other than the Americans are the French and the FRENCH CANADIANS … the bigots are the French not us … get over yourselves already!”
Spot on! Don’t forget that Pierre Trudeau’s catastrophic multiculturalist experiment started as a campaign to denigrate English Canada. Billions of dollars are spent every year to promote a language that very few people outside of Quebec speak.
This is annoying even in Ontario, where only a small minority speaks French, and in British Columbia, where you can barely find any French speakers, it is simply offensive.
On top of that we have to deal with the French arrogance in Quebec, which not only finds it natural to mooch money from the other provinces to finance brainless leftist economic schemes, but also feels superior to the rest of us.
In an interview, which I saw today, Justin Trudeau, Pierre’s dimwitted son and now leader of the Liberal Party, plainly stated that the Quebecers are superior to the rest of Canada because they are Quebecers.
So what was wrong again with Dayleen Van Ryswyk’s statement? O, yes, she refuses to kiss the arrogant French asses! That’s a mortal sin in Canada.
The B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix made a “wise” remark about the case:
“I can’t see any way that he can stand behind a candidate that would be thinking that comments like this are appropriate in any way.”
That’s the typical Canadian political idiot, who is terrified that reality may burst his progressive bubble. If that happens, he would be lost.
It looks like Canada is beyond salvation…

Earlier this month we learned the unpleasant news that four young Muslim men from the same school in London (Ontario) have been involved in terrorism. Two of them (one was a Greek convert) died during the horrific attack against a gas plant in Algeria. The third one (a Korean convert) is serving time in a Mauritanian prison and the fourth is still unaccounted for.
You might expect that the media would jump on such a story, which shatters our perception of a peaceful and dull Canada. In fact, the opposite happened – after the initial announcement little was published other than the usual rants of the offended Muslims.
That was the reason for the press conference held yesterday in Toronto by the Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow. In its press release the organization clearly stated why it is so disturbing to suppress the issue:
We have been through this before and apparently we have learned insufficiently from our experience. We are all vulnerable to the global jihad of the Islamists, and its fingerprints undeniably can be found in our country’s backyards.
Their point becomes very clear when you see how the “official Muslims” of Canada covered the case. Haroon Siddiqui, Toronto Star’s resident Islamist, wrote a column in which he fumed against the allegedly unfair coverage of that case of terrorism:
“…bad for the CBC that in its ensuing coverage it tied the youth from London, Ont., to the mosque and the Muslim community there, without any proof…
This is by now a familiar ritual.
News breaks that someone with a local connection is involved in terrorism somewhere. Accusations are hurled that mosques, imams and madrassahs are inculcating a jihadist culture, which is said to be an inevitable byproduct of Islam that’s deemed violent. Demands are issued that all Muslims condemn, condemn, condemn “homegrown radicalism,” “extremism,” “fundamentalism,” etc., even if they have had nothing to do with it and may, in fact, be as vehemently opposed to such traits as anyone else…
Constantly looking for culprits under prayer carpets is racist, Islamophobic and, more crucially, counterproductive.”
That is actually the ritual of the Islamists – whenever something like that happens, they try to suffocate any discussion even before it starts by blackmailing everybody who wants answers to some tough questions.
Siddiqui is not alone – in the comments following his article, another Muslims is quick to support him. Mubin Shaikh, the person who helped the police to catch the 18 Toronto terrorists, says:
“Excellent article. It’s a complete myth that Masjids cause radicalization. I would know, I was an undercover operative and went to many Masjids where suspected extremists would go and everyone knows the Imam isn’t gonna say anything regarding Jihad this or that because they’d lose their charitable status.
Also it is completely true that isolation and alienation causes radicalization. So, those who peddle the “war with Islam” narrative; you are actually giving ammunition to the enemy.”
Come on, Mubin, you can do better than that! People are much better informed today – they know that mosques are centres of the Muslim spiritual life and when they fall under the control of the “right” people, the results could be disastrous. Does the name of the Blind Sheikh ring a bell? Did the Toronto 18 get their ideas from a crocheting club?
Unfortunately, people like Haroon and Mubin are considered the “expert voices” on all Muslim issues. And when the media listens to their soothing tales about poverty, discrimination, and alienation as causes of terrorism, the real culprit – radical Islamism – continues its work undisturbed.
The number of terrorist acts caused by Muslims is disproportionally high. You can’t seriously deny the connection between Islamic ideology and extremism. That doesn’t help anybody.
If let’s say Muslim young people start converting to East Orthodox Christianity and go on a terrorist rampage because of that, I would encourage every possible discussion aimed at finding out what’s wrong. Most Muslims say they are peaceful, then why don’t they want an open conversation about their religion?
It is still difficult to find people with such courage. That’s why it was so interesting to attend the press conference on the London case organized by the Council for Muslims Facing Tomorrow. The organizers promised straight answers to tough questions and they delivered.
Prof. Salim Mansur and Raheel Raza spoke for nearly an hour. You can see the highlights in the video, but let me say that they had much better and detailed knowledge of the case than any media outlet.
The media took at face value the claims of the leaders of the two London mosques that they knew nothing about what happened. The truth is that even if you go only through the information available publicly, you can find disturbing links with “charities” promoting worldwide jihad.
The total denial of any connection of the mosques with the four young people causes even more problems. They didn’t go backpacking for the weekend. They went to faraway foreign countries, where it is very difficult to survive on your own, especially if you are a Greek or Korean. That means some group of people or a network have ensured their expenses and protection. It is very likely that the whole operation has started in London.
We simply can’t ignore what is going on – such indoctrination has been seen in the past, although ignored in most of the cases.
If we want to preserve the status of Canada as a liberal democracy, which ensures the rights and wellbeing of its citizens, we must not pretend that such cases are unusual and isolated. They require our full attention and careful analysis to prevent them from undermining our country.

The Jewish Defence League of Canada has called for a boycott of York University.
Many prominent members of the Jewish Community have donated over the years large sums of money to York University and many continue to do so. The JDL plans to picket outside the offices of such high profile members of the Jewish community to demand that they no longer provide material support to York University. The JDL boycott campaign against York University will start in two weeks.
It’s understandable why so many Jewish donors support that university – they still have the fond memories of it as a quiet place of high learning, which provided education to countless Jewish students. However, the transformation of York University into a place dominated by groups supporting radical leftism, Muslim extremism and Tamil Tigers terrorism, somehow escaped the attention of most of those donors.
While they still live in the past, trying to help, the current Jewish students are those who get the short end of the stick, being intimidated by the assorted idiots who control the student organizations.
It is hard to deny the contributions of the Jews to York University. If you take a look at the map of the campus, it’s hard not to notice that some of their donations were high enough to get buildings renamed in their honour.
I don’t know how much the Goldfarbs donated, but it is a well-known fact that thanks to Seymour Schulich’s generosity $27 million poured into York’s business school. That’s more money than what all the lefties graduating from York University will be able to earn during their lifetimes.
Here you see the Sherman Health Science Research Centre – it exists because another rich Jew, whose name is Barry Sherman, provided $5 million to start it. And there are many more like them, who have contributed tens of millions of dollars of combined donations.
You may get an idea about the problems here when you see that just a few blocks south of Sherman Centre is located the Norman Bethune College. Bethune didn’t contribute anything – he supported the forces of destruction. In the mid-1930’s he helped the communists in Spain in their attempt to establish a Stalinist dictatorship. Later on he switched to an even more despicable career, helping the murderous army of Chairman Mao to take over China.
Bethune’s heirs at York University are worthy of his legacy, betting on the PLO terrorism. And when the issues of Israel and PLO become central in the leftist worldview, all the Jews around them inevitably suffer, except the clueless ones who keep giving money.
The intimidation of Jewish students has been going on for years. Of course, it is clumsily disguised as “criticism of Zionism”, but anybody who has even the faintest idea about those people, can see that the term encompasses everything related to Israel and its culture. Every Jew, who doesn’t loudly condemn his or her culture (the way the weirdos from “Independent Jewish Voices” or “Neturei Karta” do) is presumed guilty.
In 2008 Dave Gordon, fed up with that intimidation, published an article in National Postoutlining the problems. He called the Jewish donors to reconsider their donations to York University, because their money financed anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli events.
The examples he referred to, painted a grim picture of the university:
“In November, 2007, York University saw several hate-filled incidents. Hasbara Fellowships organized an informational table campaign about Noam Chomsky. The table was swarmed by anti-Israel students, shouting “that Hizbullah is not a terrorist organization. The real terrorists are Zionists and the Americans.” A faculty member shouted “Gestapo!” at Jewish students. That same month the Campus Coalition of Zionists put on an Iran Awareness Campaign. Anti-Israel students mobbed the table. They then began ripping materials down, shouting and pushing students. These mini-riots were posted on YouTube.”
Even some of the learning materials reflected that hostility:
“In a York University course, “Introduction Critical Concepts: An Introduction to Politics” the textbook says, “Israel continues to use state terrorism in an attempt to subvert the Palestinians’ quest for nationhood.” This is a small sample of what happens regularly on just one campus.”
It was ironic that at the time the anti-Jewish groups operated as part of the student institutions, financed in part by the donors, while the organizations that were fighting anti-Semitism, like Hasbara and Betar had to rely on modest community support.
The publicity was enough to bring more scrutiny. The next year a commission composed of several Jewish organizations, among which were the United Jewish Appeal, Hillel, and Hasbara, prepared a report about the situation at York University.
It relied on “hundreds of submissions from students, faculty and Jewish community members after recent events at York have left many members of our community shocked and shaken,” the commission stated.
Their final report listed many cases of “intimidation, harassment, ridicule and virulent anti-Israel sentiment on the York campus over the past year.”
“We’re talking about offhand comments or scurrilous comments…unwarranted or unjustified political personal opinion that is not based on fact or is unrelated to the course that an instructor is teaching… We had one case of a [teaching assistant] who told a student who was wearing an Israel Defence Forces T-shirt to never come into his class again with that T-shirt on.”
The commission requested that York University establish a confidential hotline for students to report incidents of intimidating and offensive statements made by the academics. The interruptions of conferences and other events were also to be addressed properly by the security staff. The report also recommended that the University should no longer allow Vari Hall, a central meeting place for students, to be booked for political purposes (that didn’t work – the two major Jew-hate fests this year took place in Vari Hall).
Needless to say, none of the recommendations of the commission were implemented. The intimidation continued and in 2010 the university proudly hosted the Israeli Apartheid Week.
In the fall of the same year York University hosted an event, which made its anti-Semitism national news.
In November the notorious British MP George Galloway toured Canada speaking to crowds of his lefty fans. Other than being a Marxist scumbag who speaks with fake Scottish accent, he is a virulent anti-Semite and staunch supporter of the Palestinian terrorism. He even personally delivered wads of cash to Hamas. York’s student organization and its president Krisna Saravanamuttu were happy to invite him.
Naturally, the Jewish community was outraged. A local rabbi named Aaron Hoch condemned the event and urged his congregation to protest against it. Swift reaction came from the highest place – none other than the University President himself – Mamdouh Shoukri – came to the rescue of his pet anti-Semites. He threatened the rabbi with court action if he tried to interfere with the event.
Mr. Shoukri loves donors – in the publicity shots he always grins like a Cairo bazaar merchant who just managed to swindle a hapless Swedish tourist. But the grin disappears when he deals with ordinary Jews.
The Galloway lecture went on as scheduled, but due to the publicity, the Jewish students organized a large protest, supported by many people from the outside.
All the people who protested were squeezed in a small space (not unlike a ghetto) surrounded by police and university security. However, at certain point the people, supposed to guard the order, let inside Krisna and a few of his Muslim and Tamil thugs, who tried to start a fight with the Jewish students.
After I posted my coverage of the event, I was contacted by students with the request to remove some of the pictures. There were rumours that the administration would try to expel those who protested against Galloway. The anti-Semites won.
A few months later the news site of York University proudly announced that one of their major benefactors – Seymour Schulich – the guy who donated $27 million, was to be inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame.
On this occasion Mamdouh Shoukri congratulated him saying:
“For more than two decades, Seymour Schulich has been an incredible friend and ambassador of York University. He is a tireless advocate for students, and is committed to providing Canada’s future leaders with a world-class education.”
Looks like it is not that hard to be a hypocritical ass-kisser at York University – after helping a major anti-Semite to organize an event, which intimidated the Jewish students, Mamdouh shamelessly praises a Jew, who has no idea for what purpose his money is really used by the university. Probably that’s how things work in Egypt, from where Mamdouh came.
Still no implementation of the measures recommended by the commission…
The systematic intimidation continued. Earlier this year at another large rally in Vari Hall student organizations demanded that the police leave their campus. York University has been plagued for years by sexual assaults and other crimes, but the way to combat them (as the speakers said) is through fighting poverty and decolonization of “native lands”.
Such an approach is insane enough, but even weirder was the participation in the rally of the Jew-hating club “Students against Israeli Apartheid”. They were one of the key organizers and even displayed a huge sign.
I still can’t figure out what “Israeli apartheid” has to do with a campaign to get police off campus. I didn’t see any Israeli police officers there. It is not necessary to look for logic – the whole event was used just as another opportunity to stick it up to the Jews and show them they will always be the target.
Then in March came the decision of the student federation to demand boycott of companies, which deal with Israel.
At an even larger rally in Vari Hall, PLO supporters, fans of Tamil terrorism and ordinary commies celebrated that decision. Israel was openly called a racist state.
The very few Jewish students, who had the courage to show up and make their point, were pushed around and intimidated by both the security and the anti-Semitic participants (you can see the video here).
A very good insight into the mindset of those people came from one of the speakers. A Filipino girl in hijab gave a fiery speech against Israel. Obviously she wasn’t that bright, because she read the whole thing from a few sheets of paper and the only phrase uttered on her own was: “Free, free, Palestine!”
In the parts of the speech where she wanted to express emotion, her voice turned into hissing (similar to the reaction of a cranky cat when you try to steal a piece of fish from her bowl). It was a clever approach on behalf of the organizers to select a minority speaker, because in Canada you are automatically considered racist, if you criticize the views of a “visible minority”, no matter how vile or stupid they are.
And her views were beyond stupid. Her main point, which she repeated a few times, was that she didn’t feel safe on campus until the BDS measures were voted. It’s hard to understand that – there are no IDF patrols in York University and Israel has no presence whatsoever on campus. How can she be threatened?
If she has a clinical case of Israel paranoia, she may need to see a psychiatrist, but judging from the applauses, most of the participants shared her views. And that’s the problem – those people get worked up over a faraway country, which is barely noticeable on the map and has very limited opportunities of influencing anything in the world.
As a Filipina she may have to feel indignation over the actions of the Muslim terrorists in Mindanao, who have been slaughtering Christians for decades. Or maybe she and her friends could focus on China, whose genocidal actions in Tibet and Xingjian dwarf anything that Israel and the Arabs have ever done to each other. Instead, they choose to blackmail a country they have never been to, deriving their information from lefty propaganda, PLO pamphlets and Pallywood movie crap.
There is no law against being stupid and ignorant. The problem starts when those stupid and ignorant people are students expected to become Canada’s “future leaders” (in Mamdouh Shoukri’s words). When somebody forms an opinion, which is based on wilful disregard for all facts, it is not difficult to imagine what kind of a leader he or she would become.
And that’s the problem with anti-Semitism – regardless of the forms it takes, it is always based on irrational premises, which wilfully ignore the reality. Those people are afraid of a real discussion and the best thing they can do after running out of arguments is to shout: “Free, free, Palestine!” or other similar nonsense.
The worst part of this is that the ignorant young people have been always used by crafty politicians as pawns in their games. The devastating “Cultural Revolution” in China became possible because Chairman Mao convinced millions of young people that their ignorance is superior to the traditions of their country.
The same happens in York University. Today they voted to boycott Israel, tomorrow they may vote to expel all the “Zionists” who disagree with the boycott. Where have we seen this before?
Those idiots have the right to be stupid, but the Jewish donors have no obligation to finance their anti-Semitic stupidity.
It’s time to boycott York University.

Last Monday Toronto hosted an Israeli politician, member of the Knesset. His appearance wasn’t met by the usual crowd of screaming lefties, calling for his lynching for “war crimes”. On the contrary, he was applauded for the simple reason that the guest was Jamal Zahalka, an “Israeli Arab” and a leader of the Balad party.
Listening to him, it was easy to figure out that this wasn’t the ordinary type of parliamentarian elected to serve his country. He sounded like an angry PLO guy, who just came back from stoning an Israeli military post in the West Bank. From his lecture it was clear that he didn’t see himself as an Israeli, he considered himself Palestinian and the Knesset membership was a temporary stunt to be held before better fighting opportunities come up.
The lecture was held at Beit Zetoun, a Palestinian club, which is located in an odd place – across the street from it is “Honest Ed’s” (a huge discount store), which could be considered one of Toronto’s large Zionist projects, because it was founded by “Honest Ed” Mirvish, a very successful businessman and philanthropist (who even supported the Jerusalem Museum). In fact, the whole area is called Mirvish Village in his honour and many of the houses host galleries, arts stores and artists (quite a few of them Jewish).
To preserve its identity among that overwhelming Zionist environment, Beit Zetoun has turned itself into a miniature Palestinian bunker. It is decorated with scary military signs from Israel.
On the walls we could see large photographs of people holding pictures. As the organizers explained, that was in Hebron during the celebration of the “political prisoners” day and the photographer just happened to be there to cover the event. Behind Mr. Zahalka’s back there was a board of stills from a documentary. Supposedly, it covered an Israeli army exercise in the Negev, where they used Palestinian prisoners and even killed one of them (nice to see that Pallywood is still churning out movies).
You could also buy books and Palestinian olive oil for 20 bucks a bottle (looks like the term “competitive price” is unknown here).
The audience consisted of a few people from the notorious Palestine House (they organized the event), a large number of old tired commies and a group of students. Many wore “Support the Intifada” pins. The International Socialists were peddling their communist paper for a buck (or any coins you have). Everybody in the audience received an invitation to a fundraiser for the “Gaza Ark”, a boat that is supposed to sail out of Gaza to export goods (most likely suicide vests).
It was good to see a few familiar faces. I spotted Haroon Siddiqui, the Toronto Star resident Islamist, to whom every Muslim terrorist act is rooted in the Western imperialism. I anxiously await his coverage of the event, where he will probably explain what a great and compassionate humanitarian Mr. Zahalka is.
I also saw Noa Shaindlinger, an emerging star of the Toronto Israeli Apartheid Week and the quintessential self-hating Jew. Recently she got extra notoriety by rejoicing about the death of Israeli soldiers in a helicopter crash. After the event I heard her explaining that she was shocked by the bad reactions and threats she received because of that.
With such an audience, Mr. Zahalka’s success was guaranteed.
He introduced himself – he is a scientist specializing in pharmaceutics. All of his degrees (including the PH.D.) were obtained from Israeli universities (in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem). That’s important to note, because in the whining that followed, he mentioned several times how Palestinians were discriminated in most fields. Not only was he able to graduate despite being arrested for anti-Israeli activities, but his degrees would be recognized internationally due to the high quality of education in Israel (unlike the Arab degrees).
Despite that, he made sure to point out that he would be bashing Israel throughout the lecture (note on the quotes from the transcript: despite Mr. Zahalka’s admirable command of English, that’s not his first language, so some grammar structures may sound odd to native speakers):
Tonight I am going to speak and expose the dirty secret of the Israeli democracy. I’ll try to debunk the myths of Israeli democracy. I think it’s an extremely important mission, because the Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people is based on the international legitimacy of the Israel state. People believe that Israel is a democratic state, for that belief Israel gets full legitimacy and this legitimacy is used against the Palestinian people.
It gets worse from here, but his opinion is not unique. As a good friend of mine, with knowledge of Israeli politics, told me, Zahalka is one of the several Arab MKs who regularly bash Israel, not with constructive criticism (as it would be normal and even welcome) but with slanderous accusations bordering on sedition. Among his colleagues at the Knesset, Azmi Bishara consorted with Hezbollah and finally left Israel; Ahmed Tibi was a personal advisor of Arafat at the height of the intifada; Hanan Zuabi was part of the crew in the Gaza Flotilla; and Ibrahim Sarsur was promoting radical Islam and criticizing Israel for Judaizing Jerusalem.
He sees Israelis and Palestinians as having two different narratives – of oppressor and oppressed – that cannot be reconciled.
The story of the victim and the story of the criminal is not the same thing, they are not equal… So at this time we have a Palestinian short story and Israeli very, very, very long story. If you ask a Palestinian [he says] they took me from my village and threw me away, and this is the end of the story.
If ask Israeli – it was 3000 years ago [laughter] and God was involved there in some way… as a real estate agent, he promised me that and gave me that, things like this. Even secular Israelis, who don’t believe in god, still believe in his promise to the people of Israel. A friend of mine wrote an article about the secular Zionism [where he stated its point] there is no god but he promised us the land [laughter]. That’s how you can summarize the secular Zionism’s story.
Of course, that simplistic explanation conveniently omits the long Jewish history in those lands and the numerous international agreements that have established their rights there.
But that doesn’t matter, everything Israelis say is a lie:
It doesn’t mean that the Palestinians don’t lie, many of them lie, but it’s not a personal quality, but a story of the victim. If somebody is a victim he wants to tell about himself as a victim, he wants the facts to be known. That’s why I am saying it’s not equal, it’s not a competition between narratives – there is a lie and there is a fact. We are trying to tell the truth and the Israelis are trying to lie as much as they can. When I analyze the Israeli story, it’s like the onion symbol – you try to find some truth, you uncover the first layer, then the second layer, seeking for something solid – nothing – lie over lie, over lie, over lie. This is the Israeli story. That’s why we have to be very suspicious over the Israeli story.
So what’s the “real” story?
At the very beginning, the project of the Jewish state…you should be aggressive to implement such thing. There was no other way, because the Palestinians were not going to give them the land in good will. So when you take that project of Jewish state and want to implement it in a country where you have an Arab Palestinian majority, now logically you can do it in one of two ways – either to make apartheid, a minority regime, and make a Jewish state, or create a majority regime by expelling the indigenous people from their homeland. This is the logical analysis and somebody may say that things were not clear in the 40s and the 30s, it wasn’t like this. Then in 1939 in a hotel in New York, Biltmore hotel, the Zionist movement decided to establish a Jewish state all over Palestine…
Now the tragedy of the Palestinians was that the logical analysis overlapped totally the historical events. And in ’48 85% of the Palestinian people that the Israeli forces occupied, 800,000 were transferred from their villages and towns. 500 villages were destroyed and the vast majority of the Palestinians in cities were also expelled, and only 100,000 people stayed, and later about 50,000 people joined them because of the Rhodes agreements. So I ask myself why transfer – there are two alternatives, to make apartheid or to make transfer. Why did the Zionist leadership choose transfer? They chose transfer, because they were democrats. They have a self-image of democrats, they cannot suffer a racist regime, so it was easier to take the Palestinians away from the scene and establish the Israeli democracy. And that’s the dirty secret of the Israeli democracy – it’s a democracy built on transfer, no transfer, no Israeli democracy.
There is no other way. If you insist on Jewish state, I’ll say ok, the Palestinians will stay in their country and a minority regime will be established and the Palestinians will suffer from discrimination and I would say that apartheid is the Palestinian dream. We demand apartheid, give us apartheid, it’s good for us, it’s much better than our situation of being refugees, of being uprooted from our villages and towns. So I sometimes, when people compare Palestinian situation with South Africa I feel pain – what’s wrong with apartheid? It’s much better than being expelled to Lebanon and suffering as refugees.
One undisputable truth that Mr. Zahalka mentioned earlier was that Palestinians also lie. This tirade confirms it. The Elders of Zion conspired in 1939 in the dark halls of Biltmore Hotel how to create their evil state. Then in 1948 they invaded the Holy Land and single-handedly kicked out several hundred thousand peace-loving Arabs, who until then were happily frolicking in the green pastures once graced by Old Mo’s flying horse.
As a pharmacist, Mr. Zahalka may need to prescribe to himself some memory loss drugs, because it seems he has forgotten plenty of facts. There has always been a strong Jewish presence in Palestine (as a geographical term, there has never been such a country). After the Balfour Declaration and the establishment of the Mandate, the Jewish immigration increased, improving the conditions in that mostly deserted land.
That caused increased immigration of Arabs to Palestine (often illegally, in the 1930s and 1940s) from neighbouring countries, although the land was allocated for a Jewish state. For example, the governor of Syria boasted in 1934 that in the space of a few months about 30,000 Arabs entered Palestine. That despite the fact that Transjordan was already carved out of the Mandate to be an Arab state, where no Jewish immigration was allowed.
The 1948 events didn’t come out of nowhere. Mr. Zahalka forgot that although the Jews accepted the unfair partition plan UN resolution, they were immediately attacked by all Arab neighbours with the explicit purpose to be pushed into the sea (an old Palestinian dream). The vast majority of Arabs left the country following the calls of the Arab leaders on the eve of their attack in May 1948. There are plenty of US, UK and Arab press reports and witness accounts, which document that.
Now they want to go back, it’s like saying: “OK, we tried to kill you, but it didn’t work. Can we return now?”
Instead of telling the truth, Mr. Zahalka, an Israeli citizen, wails like a Ramallah drama queen: “Give us apartheid! It’s good for us!”
He dedicated part of his lecture to attacking the Israeli laws, which supposedly are inherently unjust and cannot be applied better, they need to be abolished. An example was the citizenship law:
So-called citizenship law – it gives priority to Jews, everyone can get automatically citizenship and rights. There are many rights that a Jewish man in Brooklyn has more than me. The law was changed in year 2000 to say that Palestinian couples from both sides of the green line, from west bank and Gaza cannot live together. 5000 families are suffering from that, it’s preventing family unification, if you are a Jew, you can get citizenship immediately. it was said it was for security reasons and then Sharon said they want to hide behind security, but it is because of demographic considerations.
They say Palestinians have fake or fabricated marriages to get citizenship, it’s conspiracy against the state. I told them there are no such marriages in our community, no family would allow it.
Again, Mr. Zahalka fails to notice that Israel is the Jewish national state. Every national state has laws to protect itself and control who gets in. For example, Japan is the country of the Japanese – it is extremely difficult to immigrate there and if they accept you, you must act like a Japanese and obey all the laws. Nobody criticizes Japan about that. Only Israel is denied that right for a very simple reason – Arabs like Zahalka simply don’t want it to exist.
Flooding a country with illegal immigrants, who later change it, is one of the oldest tricks. But it looks like the Palestinians are heavenly angels incapable of committing immigration fraud.
Then he mentioned the so-called “cowboy law”, which lets you buy from the government land for a ranch, the law supposedly discriminates against the Bedouins. (Wasn’t the definition of Bedouin somebody, who moves from place to place and doesn’t own land?)
But the best material, which was unscripted, came during the Q&A session.
The first question addressed his complaints about the Israeli democracy: since he travels the world criticising Israel, is he harassed by the Israeli government?
Mr. Zahalka gave an evasive answer – he mentioned again the arrest and jail time when he was young. He also said that in 2002, 2006, 2009 and 2013 his party had problems with the election registration, because of doubts that it doesn’t recognize the Jewish state. However, he couldn’t give a single example of him being harassed by the government for his personal views.
Then a young revolutionary posed the following question:
“Given the scale of the occupation of the west bank since the Oslo accords, is the so-called two-state solution a dead letter now? And the only way to do it now is to fight for dismantling the Zionist state and establishing a secular and democratic state for all the people in the region.”
I would agree with you about the two-state solution is dying. It’s a very bad situation. The Arab league presented a very generous and unprecedented offer to the Israelis to recognize Israel if Israel withdraws from the West Bank and a Palestinian state is established and some rights of the Palestinian refugees are recognized and Israel said no. I see that the Israeli government is a very extreme government – no chance, there is no Israeli partner for the two state solution. If I look for example at the ruling party Likud, most of them are crazy people. The leaders of that party are people very, very extreme; all of the people who were less extreme were not elected. In this situation there is no chance – not for one step, no for two steps.
…We speak for one state, two states, the number of the states is not important, I do believe that in the long term there is no chance for democracy peace and freedom without ending the Zionist regime. That’s the key point. If Israelis want to believe in Zionism I don’t care, it’s just beliefs. It’s the question of political thought, of sovereignty. You cannot live in peace if one part is hegemonious over the other.
So he wants to get rid of the Zionist parties, which he said previously are the majority of the political parties, but didn’t say what will replace them.
We may get the answer when he replies to another question: since it is so difficult to operate in Knesset, why doesn’t he consider boycotting it.
Zahalka had a good reply, sprinkled with Marxism-Leninism:
It’s not black and white, but legitimate question. They try to prevent my party from running and if they do it frankly I won’t be disappointed. But if I don’t go I will give them another argument – we give him the opportunity and he doesn’t use it…
Lenin and Trotsky said something like this (I am not Leninist I used to be but they are right here) – if you don’t participate in the parliament, you must have a strong revolutionary process, which is very strong, very loud. When I come to the conclusion that I can go to a revolutionary phase, I will leave it. If there is something stronger outside of the parliament, I will leave it.
Let’s see – revolution means overthrowing the existing social order by force. What kind of a revolution is going Mr. Zahalka to join? Is it against the Israeli government? Whatever it is, it is bizarre to hear that from a person whose job is to work for his country.
He gave us a better idea about the nature of that revolution when another question about the Palestinian future came up:
Now there is also of course the struggle against occupation, the struggle against the Judaization of Jerusalem, I can tell how I evaluate the Israeli government – there are two things – they are extreme and weak. Mr. Netanyahu is a very extreme person, but he is weak. He is not like Sharon. If there is pressure against him, he surrenders to pressure.
And the pressure could come from Palestinian struggle against occupation and from international solidarity movement. This is the coalition. Here we saw something the two-state solution is dying and the one state is not born yet, but we also have a closed door, no negotiations. How can we get out of it? Diplomatic intifada is not enough, Mr. Abu Mazen went to the UN for recognition of Palestine, ok, but if there is now a Palestinian uprising it will be weak, the Palestinians and their allies came to the conclusion that there are no negotiations; the only way is to create pressure over Israel like the case of South Africa. I don’t need to teach you what to do, you know.
[Voices: Boycott, boycott]
I think economic and diplomatic and scientific pressure over Israel is the way. If there are two pressures – from the Palestinian uprising you know there is a consensus in the Palestinian leadership now that we support a Palestinian intifada. It has not come into practice, but as you know people carry buttons with intifada. I can give you my instinct that a third intifada is on its way. The situation is very complicated it’s not only the Palestinians also the international community which gives money to PA to keep stability, financing the occupation. That’s not helping the Palestinian people; it is preserving the stability and silence. And our duty as I said is to give voice to the silent suffering.
Is Mr. Zahalka really a member of the Israeli parliament?
He calls for an armed uprising against his own government, supported by the international lefties. And on top of that he wants to starve his own people on the West Bank by cutting their funds, thus revolutionizing them.
He sounds like a character from “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers” whose body has been taken over by the vilest Hamas terrorist in Gaza. But most likely, that’s the real Jamal Zahalka speaking and we need to be concerned when a member of the Knesset thinks and talks like that.
The final nail in the coffin of the Jewish state came when he answered the last question, about the collaboration between Jews and Palestinians in political parties like Hadash:
I think that the morality of the progressive Jews is to support the Palestinian national movement, because it represents oppressed people and you can’t demand from people who are oppressed to support something like internationalism and chauvinism, like come to us not as a national person. There is a difference between the nationality of the oppressor and the nationality of the oppressed. And as we saw the Marxists and the communists in South Africa supported the ANC, they were part of ANC… We cooperate with Jewish progressive people but are not ready to give up our nationality to join Jewish supporters. It’s hard to explain because sometimes you use nationality to oppress people, other times to liberate them.
Did you hear it, “progressive Jews”? The Palestinians have their own revolutionary apartheid. If you want to waste your lives for them, you should play the second fiddle and do what they tell you. And it is not hard to imagine what will happen to you if they win.
There wasn’t a peep from the audience after that blatant rejection of “internationalism” and “multicultural brotherhood”. But again, the lefties are not the sharpest tool in the shed…
So that was it…
Imagine that a member of the Chinese parliament of Tibetan background says about China half of the things Zahalka said about Israel. He or she would never leave prison.
And the demonic Zionist kingdom of Israel lets Zahalka in and out of the country without any problems. Isn’t that the “dirty secret” of the Israeli democracy?

After last month’s decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Bill Whatcott’s case, Christianity has become a fair target for militant homosexuals and Muslims. The decision criminalized the expression of the Christian doctrine when some of its elements contradict the tastes of the two most protected groups in Canada.
Fallout from that case is the proclamation by Calgary’s Muslim mayor Naheed Nenshi of a “Trans Day of Visibility”. And out of all 365 days available in a year, he chose for it last Sunday, when the Christians celebrated their most important holiday. It was a humiliating decision, which showed everybody that in the new Canadian reality the Christians should shut up and take quietly every humiliation or else face very unpleasant consequences.
The majority of the “trans” people (other than the real hermaphrodites) suffer from a mental condition called gender identity disorder. Instead of providing psychiatric help, the social engineering elites exploit those unfortunate people in their tireless work to destroy the traditional values of Canada.
Of course, the trannies are free to practice their lifestyle any way they want, but to promote them everywhere and present them as the new normal choice in schools is simply going over the top.
Imagine if the mayor had chosen one of the big Muslim holidays as a tranny day. By now we would’ve been flooded with angry statements from imams and outraged articles in the mainstream press about his insensitivity and “islamophobia”. That despite the fact that unlike Christianity, which only disapproves of homosexuality, Islam around the world tries very hard to exterminate the homosexuals.
It is curious to see these two groups – homosexuals and Muslims – who can’t coexist, united against Christianity.
Under the new rules, just expressing my opinion in this post would be enough for the cops to start banging on my door charging me with hate speech.
Welcome to the new grim Canadian reality.

At this week’s rally at York University, which was organized to celebrate the decision to destroy Israel by economic means, Professor David McNally was one of the keynote speakers. You can enjoy his speech in the video above.
He is well known leftist, who sincerely believes that his prescriptions to resolve the world’s problems by applying the mouldy Marxist tools, could really make all of us live better.
At the same time, he finds pleasure in hanging out at events with such devout fans of the Iranian Muslim extremism like Ali Mallah and Zafar Bangash.
While socializing with those people, he promotes heavily in his teaching issues and fields, which his Muslim buddies may find disturbing:
“I am teaching four courses this academic year. In the Fall Term 2012, I’ll be teaching a fourth-year and M.A. seminar entitled, “Marxism, Feminism and Poststructuralism” and a graduate seminar on volume one of Marx’s Capital entitled, “Appropriating Marx’s Capital, 1” (In Winter Term 2013 I will teach a third-year course, “The Political Culture of Race and Racism” and a graduate seminar, “Appropriating Marx’s Capital, 2” on volumes 2 and 3 of Capital.)”
McNally is a curious case, because even in the times of Brezhnev it was hard to find scholars from the communist countries, who truly believed in Marx’s hodgepodge. Most of those were in the field to get easy money from lectures delivered and books published with the understanding that it was illegal to criticize them.
Islam is not big on feminism and poststructuralism, yet Muslims value McNally. It may look like a paradox, but the answer is simple – both sides have a pathological hatred for Israel that unites them (at least temporarily).
It’s delightful to see that McNally is loved by his students, who give him high ratings. So what is the basis of those ratings?
“This Guy Rocks!!! Awesome Prof, Awesome Lectures.., No Exams!!! Easy to approach and talk to.. Total Lefty which is cool in my books”
“great prof. heavily leaning towards the left, but it’s possible to live with that. no tests or exams!”
If we leave aside the spelling, which shows that the York University education is hard to trust, the main attraction of Prof. McNally’s courses appears to be the lack of tests and exams. (The lectures apparently don’t enrich the students intellectually, because they still express themselves at a grade-two level.)
That’s the dream of the lazy lefty. A useless subject like political science is easy enough, but the “prof” makes it even easier by letting everybody pass. It’s the ultimate communist fairness, where everybody is equal; everybody deserves the same regardless of work or ability. And why not? That degree is useless anyway, unless you get some parasitic government job, like a Human Rights inquisitor with a license to hunt Christians.
Why are we paying for all that?

This is the first video in the series that will cover the highlights from a rally that took place at York University on March 27, 2013. Braving the hostility and the calls for economic destruction of Israel, a small group of Jewish students showed up to make their point.
That didn’t work well. They were shouted at by the loony participants and moved around by the security.
It was another excruciating day at York University. Yesterday I attended there a rally organized by Students Against Israeli Apartheid, called to celebrate the student federation’s endorsement of the boycott of Israel and demand that the university administration comply with it. Plus, I read the local paper, praising John Greyson’s new tranny film project and convincing men to switch to women’s clothing.
Nothing summarized the spirit of the event than the huge sign, in front of which most speakers stood. It read: “Zionism-Israel-Racism”.
Equating these three words demonizes Israel and everybody, who lives there, in the same way that the classic anti-Semites do. Israel and the Jews are not that popular at that university – the unholy alliance of Muslims, lefties and union activists never misses the opportunity to show that in different ways – from hosting the notorious George Galloway to the annual Israeli Apartheid Week.
The organizers tried to soften the anti-Israeli impression by featuring Independent Jewish Voices, whose big sign was also hanging from the wall (apparently the Neturei Karta nuts were not available).
Adding that tiny group to the York University anti-Israeli Kool-Aid cocktail is not going to fool many people. The only thing that group proves is that not all Jews are smart.
The latest decision about the BDS campaign is not that different from what happened in the past. Even Excalibur (the YU paper, which can hardly be called pro-Israeli) reluctantly admits that Hillel and Hasbara said they were not notified officially about the meeting of the student federation (YSF), where the motion was voted. The devious leaders of YSF even made sure the vote took place during Passover, thus eliminating the Jewish students.
There was even a petition to adopt the motion signed by 5,000 students (out of 55,000). Of course, the opinion of 5,000 Muslims and lefties (if the petition is real) trumps the opinions of the rest.
Over 100 people attended the rally and spent the time yelling and chanting against Israel.
The rally didn’t attract just fans of the Palestinian terrorism… oops, “struggle for liberation” – there were several people from the Tamil student organization of York University, proudly waving Tamil Tigers flags.
Obviously, the news that the Tamil Tigers are a terrorist organization still hasn’t reached the university.
The decorations in Vari Hall put up by the organizers were consistent with their anti-Israeli sentiments. One of them called to “drop fees not bombs” – I had no idea that York University was bombing somebody.
Another sign expressed rage over Gaza – “the siege continues, Gaza, apartheid, Israel”. Well, they somehow forgot that Egypt is also blocking Gaza; its government even destroyed many of the underground tunnels. Imagine how terrible the Hamas government is, if even their Muslim Brotherhood godfathers don’t like them.
The lefty taste for weird expressions of their “ideas” was visible all over the place.
The lineup of speakers was impressive – with representatives from a few kooky organizations united by their disdain for the non-conforming Jews. I caught most of the speeches on video and will put the best moments of them on YouTube, but let me just present the people who spoke.
A fiery girl from YUBSA, the York University Black Students Association, trashed Israel for its racism. She compared it to South Africa. It was curious to hear this from an organization, which offers to its members discounts from black-owned businesses (isn’t that racist?).
My old friend Mariam, who some time ago put a lot of effort to promote Muslim prayers in a Toronto public school, was ecstatic about the BDS decision. She also demanded that her tuition fees should not finance Israel.
A guy from CUPE, the public employees’ union, proudly stated how several locals of the union are already boycotting Israel.
A person from Independent Jewish Voices (not sure if it was a man, woman or two-spirited) assured the participants that most of the progressive Jews fully support the BDS campaign. He or she didn’t specify the number of those progressive Jews.
An especially interesting lefty specimen was a hijab Filipina, who spoke against the Israeli racism in such a tense and rabid way that her speech sounded more like a dialogue with a rattlesnake. She bore close resemblance with Michelle Malkin, but I shouldn’t remind you that appearance often lies. I am going to put her in a separate video.
It is hard to believe that somebody would challenge that screaming and hostile crowd. However, a small group of Jewish students showed up to make their point against the blackmail. One of the students was brave enough to wear a large Israeli flag; another one was handing out flyers with information about Israel.
Needless to say, many of the people present were hostile and not interested in any new information about Israel. Soon enough it turned out that regardless of how quiet they were, the Jewish students were unwanted. They were sent to the upper level of the hall, most of which was also occupied by an anti-Israeli crowd, although smaller.
That wasn’t the only case of harassment – I am not particularly liked by that type of crowd and this time I even got special attention from it. A creepy guy began to follow me with a camera, taking many pictures. He had that strange grin, which could belong either to a leering homosexual or a common psychopath. At certain point he came very close to me. literally shoving his camera in my face and almost hit my lens, as you can see in the sequence below.
He did the same to one of the Jewish students – following him with the same leering grin.
Eventually, we complained to one of the security guys. His “helpful” answer was that he is allowed to take pictures and there is nothing they can do. Obviously, the concept of harassment doesn’t apply at York University when the targets are Jewish people. I hope that creep took enough pictures for the Kristallnacht rolodex of the Israeli apartheid activists.
Banishing the Jewish students to the less-populated upper level didn’t stop the harassment. Soon enough they were swarmed by hijabs and lefties, who blamed the Israeli Jews for committing genocide.
The attempt to explain that Israel has never been involved in genocide was scoffed at. When one of the students pointed out that the Jews themselves had been victims of genocide of 6 million, the guy in the picture asked: “Who is counting?”
Very soon the lefties ran out of arguments and continued in the old way – by shouting “Free, free Palestine!” and other nonsense.
The guy who argued more than the rest looked strangely familiar. I recalled that I have seen him before – he was at the Idle No More event at SUN NEW (which I covered in a video), where he argued with Ezra Levant and when he ran out of arguments started shouting: “Ezra, you can hide, but we can see your racist side!” It was strange statement, provided that Ezra had no intention of hiding.
Before that I had seen him helping the illegal Indian occupation in Caledonia with Tom Keefer. He was taunting Gary McHale during his arrest.
It’s a small world for those lefties.
After that incident, the Jewish students were asked to move again. At the new locations, one of them, fed up with the whole thing, started to chant “Free Gaza from Hamas!” Other than being factually correct, the call wasn’t louder or more provocative that the Israel-bashing going on at the lower level. Yet the security showed up again to tell the Jews to shut up.
At that moment, a few of the Jewish students urged the rest to stop, because if they continue the confrontation, the crowd below would continue to harass them after the rally. Yes, that was the classic Jewish defeatism – if you keep quiet, the Cossacks may miss your house. I got the same last month in a comment to my post “A Madhouse Called York University”. A supposedly Jewish student chastised me that by criticizing Muslims and lefties I am destroying the fragile peace between the Jews and them.
It is sad that many people forget how fruitless such defeatism has always been. All Jewish accomplishments (including the history of Israel) show that success comes from asserting yourself, not from lying low.
Judging from the atmosphere in York University, anti-Semitism is just one of the facets of their progressivist agenda. I picked there a copy of Excalibur, the local rag, which had on its front page a sympathetic coverage of the BDS motion.
Along with that there were crime reports – a pervert masturbated in front of girls in a lab; a black guy stole a girl’s phone at gun point. Last month they had a large student rally against the police, which called to fight crime on campus by anti-colonialist and anti-poverty measures instead. It looks like that didn’t work out.
In an editorial the Editor-in-Chief praised the freedom of her paper, which lets you use freely the word “fuck” (I wonder if an anti-abortionist would enjoy the same freedom). Then I saw a full-page article about the new film project of John Greyson. If you remember, that professor, who hates Israel with passion, made two years ago (on public dime) a short movie, which tried to discourage Justin Bieber from performing in Israel.
The article, titled “York film professor uses TTC platform for social issues: John Greyson’s “Murder in Passing” discusses transgender, transit, and transmedia issues”, tells us the plot of the new masterpiece. A bike courier is killed on Toronto public transit property and a tranny detective tries to solve the murder, tackling many tranny issues in the process. Remember folks – we, the voiceless taxpayers, and the gullible York University donors are paying for that tripe.
Another full-page article urges men to wear skirts as an ultimate fashion statement (and I am not talking kilts here). The article “Androgyny from the runway to the streets: Women don boyfriend-blazers, jeans, and shirts, but when will men want to shop in the women’s section?” tries to convince men that they need to transition from faggy fashion to a full-blown tranny wardrobe. The author ponders the question about when that tranny fashion for men will finally spill from the runway into the everyday life. I wonder how that would be promoted among the York University Muslims students.
Without any doubt, the madhouse called York University is getting even madder – and there is no relief in sight.

Happy Passover to All Readers and Friends!
This week the Jews all over the world and their friends are going to celebrate Passover. Those in North America will mark it in peace in the comfort of their homes. Others, like those in France and Sweden, will be weary of what the future holds for them in countries where anti-Semitism is reminding of its existence.
Although Passover is a family holiday, it is impossible to separate it from the political reality. Even its origins are rooted in the political struggle to end the Jewish slavery in Egypt.
That’s the reason why there are things that we should never forget. As a reminder, I chose for the greeting not an idyllic family seder picture, but an image I took during our trip to Hebron last year. This is a photo of the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, one of the holiest Jewish sites.
Unlike the Jews elsewhere in the world, those in Hebron live under constant threats. The very act of worship is a challenge – they can be attacked at any moment on their way to or out of the Tomb. That’s why there are soldiers everywhere – the place looks more like military barracks than a place of worship.
We had to get there on a bulletproof bus. That looked extravagant at the time. Just a few months later such a bus, in the same area, was attacked by shooting terrorists and badly damaged.
Long time ago Hebron was the capital of King David. The Tomb of the Patriarchs is even older than that, it was the first Jewish property in the Holy Land, which Abraham bought. Yet it was later occupied and disfigured with ugly minarets by the followers of a religion whose only claim to the place were the demented ramblings of a desert warmonger.
It is ironic that even after the restoration of the Jewish State, the small population of Hebron Jews have access to only 20% of their holy site. That is definitely progress from the centuries when the Jews were not allowed in at all – the remains of the Seven Steps outside, which the Jews had to climb for the chance to touch the wall, are a humiliating reminder of those times.
The small Jewish community in that town deserves support – it has been betrayed many times by the international bodies and even their own government in Jerusalem. Hebron has often been offered as a playing chip in the delusional schemes to buy peace from the Arabs I exchange for land.
It is not easy to live in such condition. Some have called the Hebron Jews crazy, others consider them stubborn, but the truth is that those are the people who keep the flame and the spirit of Judaism alive in that ancient Jewish place.
Passover is a time to remember them and everything they represent, because a country, which is willing to discard its past, has no future.

On March 14 Israel Truth Week, an initiative dedicated to educating Canadians about Israel, held its first event at a university. Toronto’s Ryerson University hosted a presentation by Salomon Benzimra on the legal rights of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.
Organized jointly by ITW, Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights (CILR) and the Ryerson Israeli Student Association, the lecture’s goal was to confront the propaganda spread within our universities during the Israeli Apartheid Week.
In front of the audience, which included students and visitors from outside of the university, Mark Vandermaas introduced Salomon Benzimra and his work. Goldi Steiner from CILR provided information about the activities of the organization, which include spreading the truth about Israel not only in Canada, but also in Israel, where not enough has been done to communicate that truth to the younger generation. The targets of the tireless work of CILR are not limited just to individuals and organizations; they also include politicians like Moshe Yaalon, a supporter of CILR, who recently became the new Defense Minister of Israel.
In his lecture Salomon Benzimra covered the most important facts about how the rights of the Jewish people over the land of Israel were recognized.
The audience listened with interest the concise presentation, which covered the history of the issue from ancient times to the most recent developments. I am not going to cover the presentation in detail in this post – I have done that before when writing about his other appearances (including the Israel Truth Week conference talk on March 5, 2013). Besides, you can find everything explained in his book “The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel” (available at Amazon).
I want to write about another important thing – under the ITW time constraints, Salomon had to limit his talk to the time allotted, there wasn’t much time for communication with the audience. The Ryerson event provided plenty of time for a dialogue with the people present.
While answering the questions, Salomon had the opportunity to share his extensive knowledge about the problems facing Israel.
As it has happened before, a question came about the discrepancy between the emotional and rational approach toward those issues. While the lecture covers convincingly the facts, many people, especially activists, tend to ignore them and act upon emotions that are difficult to confront.
From that point of view, an elderly gentleman shared the case of his family. His eldest son is trying to convert everybody to the idea that Jews and Palestinians are going to live in peace and harmony, if both sides compromised enough, especially if the Jews admit that they are occupiers. The father’s attempts to show that this is a utopian idea disproved by the history of the conflict, fell on deaf ears.
Salomon’s reply was that regardless of the emotional issues involved, facts remain facts. The restoration of Israel was not a random whim, but part of extensive negotiations after World War I. Those international treaties shaped the borders of many countries and so far nobody has questioned that. The Versailles treaties reshaped Bulgaria, Romania, and Turkey. They also created the new country of Yugoslavia. The League of Nations’ Mandates, one of which was supposed to be the new Jewish state, also resulted in the creation of Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.
It is impossible to question the legality of Israel without putting in doubt the whole legal framework, which affected so many countries. Logic requires the admission that if Israel’s creation is illegal, so is everything else in those treaties. Of course, only the provisions affecting Israel are seen that way. It’s not difficult to figure out that in this case we are dealing with an emotion – pure hate for the Jews and Israel, which has no place in international relations. It should be refuted in the same way in conversations, because regardless of the emotions felt, facts eventually prevail, though not as quickly as we wish.
Another interesting question concerned the peace negotiation between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs, specifically the demand that Israel withdraw to the 1967 borders.
Salomon methodically showed the absurdity of that demand. Although the Jews reluctantly agreed to the division of the Mandate land by the UN in 1948, the Arabs rejected it and even tried to destroy the Jewish State. That voided the partition resolution and the so-called 1967 borders are nothing but armistice lines. PLO, founded in 1964, had no demands for those territories while they were under Jordanian and Egyptian control.
It is absurd to push cease-fire lines as official border of a country without negotiations and reaching an agreement by all sides involved. But what is unacceptable in any other part of the world, seems to be the rule when dealing with Israel – the demonization and questioning the legitimacy of the Jewish state seem to be the “normal” approach in that area.
One of the attendees expressed the frustration that such important historical facts, like those covered by Salomon Benzimra, get such a little attention in the media. I fully share that frustration, although I think that the truth would eventually prevail albeit in a long and slow process of education.

Jewish Defence League Pesach Message
“And Pharaoh called to Moses, saying: Go and worship the L-rd. Only your sheep and cattle will remain – your children will also go with you. And Moses said: You will also give us offerings and sacrifices for the L-rd our G-d, and our flocks will go with us…” (Shmot 10:24-26)
The ninth plague-darkness – has struck Egypt with a vengeance and Pharaoh breaks. Step by step he has retreated and after the eighth plague – locusts – he was prepared to allow the Jews to leave except for their children. Now he surrenders almost entirely as he agrees that all the Jews can leave. He only asks one thing, one compromise, one small victory for himself, that the Jewish cattle remain behind.
Consider; the Jews have been slaves for 210 years. They have lived in misery and persecution. They suffered decrees such as the one casting their male children into the sea. They cried out unto the L-rd for freedom and salvation. Now, apparently the great moment has arrived! Pharaoh agrees that they shall go free! What does it matter that he asks for their cattle? Give it to him! The main thing is peace and salvation and we are willing to give up cattle for peace!
But Moses knows that this is not the purpose of the freedom of the Jewish people and of the story of the slavery and exodus. He is not prepared to compromise one inch because he knows what the purpose of G-d is. When Moses first entered the presence of Pharaoh and said: “The L-rd, G-d of the Hebrews, has said: Let my people go!” Pharaoh contemptuously answered: “Who is the L-rd? I know not the L-rd and will not let Israel go!” Here is where the battle was joined. Here is the purpose and aim of creation – to have the world recognize the dominion and kingship of the L-rd being challenged. Pharaoh must be made to recognize and totally acknowledge the sovereignty of the L-rd over him and his people. He cannot make compromises; he cannot strike bargains. He must submit totally!

It was only two weeks ago when the Supreme Court of Canada declared the criticism of homosexuality to be a hate crime. It seems that in Toronto Islam is also under the same high protection. Today, at a protest somebody was arrested for mocking Islam.
As I wrote earlier, a protest event was scheduled for March 20 at the offices of the Liberal Party of Ontario. It was caused by the fact that the Minister of Labour of our ruling party, Yasir Naqvi, endorsed an Islamic book, which (in accordance with the Koran) recommended wife beating as a tool for solving family problems. Despite the public outrage, the Liberals chose to ignore the issue and turn a blind eye on Muslim misogyny.
The protest attracted a tiny group of participants carrying signs like:
“Beat wife only for honour & discipline, Holy Koran 4:34”
“Those that deny Islam will be killed, Holy Koran 33:16”
“Expose jihad with free speech or die”
However, what they lacked in numbers, they made up for with their creativity. Eric Brazau, who was one of the organizers, was dressed like an imam and accompanied by a woman in a full Muslim niqab.
Using a microphone, he gave a mock Muslim sermon, assisted by the veiled woman. He was “praising” Canada as a place, where you can beat your wife with impunity. Reading from sheets of paper, he also counted all the benefits you would get here if you are a religious fanatic. It was a satirical performance, which still focused the attention on the flaws of Islam.
In the beginning the people didn’t pay much attention. Then two police women stopped by and a police van for transporting people under arrest parked in the side street.
Many of the people who were passing by found the event amusing – laughing and stopping to take pictures. Then some Muslims started to argue with the protestors, although everything was kept peaceful.
At certain point the police decided that the mockery of Islam is getting dangerous and sprang into action. Even more officers arrived and Eric Brazau, along with the other organizer, Ron Banerjee, were led to the police vehicles in the side street.
After the customary processing, Brazau was handcuffed and led away in the van. After some questioning, Banerjee was released.
Although the police measures against a peaceful protest were outrageous, they didn’t surprise me. Now every special interest group is beyond reproach regardless of how despicable their positions or actions are.
But truth is truth, no matter what the Supreme Court of Canada says. Islam is a barbaric religion, because it openly promotes violence against women and deprives them from their rights. Of course, the police can arrest me for saying that, but that is not going to make Islam more likable or acceptable.
And we also have a double standard applied here. There is a similar type of protest going on in front of the Israeli Consulate every Friday. A tiny group of lefties, Muslims and self-hating Jews stands there handing out flyers and holding signs. They are also peaceful, but the materials they give away are virulently anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish. And yet I have never seen police talking to them; none of them has ever been arrested.
It looks like the critics of Islam are lesser people who can be on the receiving end of the police wrath for no apparent reason.
Welcome to the new Toronto, where the Canadian values mean nothing and their defence becomes a dangerous business.

Long time ago the NDP was a party that supposedly defended the interests of the working people. Its leaders like Tommy Douglas usually didn’t get things right, but at least they had the desire to help. Those times are long gone. Nowadays our socialists have turned into a conglomerate, which cares only about freaks, perverts and public union parasites.
A blatant example of that disastrous trend is Bill C-279, which proposes to include “gender identity” and “gender expression” in the hate crimes sections of the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code.
Introduced last year by the NDP MP Randall Garrison (and passed after its second reading), it is due for vote again.
Other than fragmenting our society even more by creating new and smaller special interest groups, there is also another danger emerging from that law, for which it was nicknamed the “Bathroom Bill”. The law provides access to women’s public facilities like toilets, locker rooms, and showers to people who “express” themselves as women.
Designed to protect the very tiny minority of hermaphrodites, who don’t have definitive gender, the bill opens the doors to women’s abuse by mentally ill people and perverts. In the original version of the law, the term “Gender Identity” (which had to be protected) was not defined.
Under pressure, the NDP proposed an amendment, which defined the term. Gender identity should be understood as:
“deeply felt internal and individual experience of gender, which may or may not correspond with the sex that the individual was assigned at birth.”
Read the definition again – it is unbelievable that in the XXI century somebody could propose such a stupid definition, which doesn’t meet even the voodoo science standards. The definition is strictly subjective. If this was in an essay of a high school student, he will get a failing grade (only if he lives outside of Toronto). It is beyond comprehension that such a meaningless definition is proposed as a part of a federal legislation.
To understand that legal insanity, please take a look at the picture above. I snapped the photo at last year’s Dyke Parade in Toronto. The bearded dude in it has a “deeply felt internal and individual experience” of female gender, which is strong enough to make him shave his legs and wear a dress. Sure, he left the beard, but that’s a minor detail.
But under Bill C-279 he is fully eligible to enjoy all the amenities in places reserved for women. He definitely looks cheerful and agreeable, but can you imagine him showering at the gym next to your young daughter? If you can’t, you still should get used to the picture, because he technically is a woman under the proposed law.
However, the mentally disturbed people are not the only ones we should worry about. The law provides full protection to every pervert or wannabe rapist, who goes into a ladies’ washroom or shower. When he is caught, all he has to do is to claim that he “deeply feels” he is a woman to get off the hook. This will turn into a mockery of our judicial system.
I’ve spoken to many women about the terrible consequences of this law and I have yet to hear even one, who hasn’t reacted with fear or disgust. Obviously, the NDP idiots have never communicated with normal women (other than lesbians); otherwise it would be hard to explain their total lack of touch with reality.
One might expect that the Conservative MPs would vote unanimously against that insanity, but that’s not the case. The bill passed initially with the help of a few conservatives – 15 of them voted for it, another 16 didn’t even show up for the vote.
Brave people like Rob Anders (MP for Calgary West) started a fight against the bill, but the struggle is not over. Within the next few days there will be another vote on the bill. To avert disaster, we need to convince as many MPs as possible to get their heads out of the sand and think about their mothers, wives, daughters and all women and girls in Canada – we can’t leave those women at the mercy of every crazy person or pervert who wants to take advantage of them and then get full protection under Bill C-279.

You can also contact the Prime Minister and let him know what you think about that disastrous law:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper – Calgary Southwest – 403-253-7990 – firstname.lastname@example.org
If you live in an area represented by a Liberal or NDP MP, you can still contact him or her – after all, even if they refuse to change their position, they should know that not every person in Canada supports insane social engineering.
It is not easy to fight for your rights and freedoms, but we have no other choice except to do it. Otherwise, Canada that we know, which has attracted over many decades so many people from different nations, would turn into some of the totalitarian hellholes those people escaped from.
