Jews cast off yoke of dhimmitude and protest. “Sparks Fly Between Jews and Muslims in Toronto,” by Fern Sidman for the Intellectual Conservative, August 4:
Jewish Defense League stages demonstration at Arab Federation Building.
Defiant chants of “Condemn Muslim Terrorism Now” and “Jewish Blood Is Not Cheap” could be heard in the streets of downtown Toronto, on Thursday afternoon, July 31st, as 30 members of Toronto’s Jewish Defense League staged an angry demonstration in front of the offices of the Canadian Arab Federation. Responding to the dramatic rise in anti-Semitic attacks on Jews by Muslims in the Toronto area, Meir Weinstein, director of the JDL in Toronto, said, “The abject silence on the part of the Canadian Arab Federation in the face of vitriolic attacks on Jews by Muslim perpetrators is tantamount to tacit approval of anti-Semitism and gives a green light to others who would entertain the notion of attacking Jews.”
Weinstein was specifically referring to an attack that occurred on November 3, 2006, when a Jewish teenager and her three friends were viciously assaulted at a Toronto train station by Mustafa Taj, 21, who was recently sentenced to one year in prison by provincial court Judge Bill Cummings, who ruled that the attack was racially motivated.
According to a report in the Canadian newspaper, The Calgary Sun, dated July 24, 2008, on November 2, 2006, “Taj approached the group (of teenagers) around 10:45 pm, and asked ‘who’s Jewish.’ Nichola Cordato, then 16, stated ‘me’ and Taj grabbed her and said, ‘I’m Muslim and hate Jews.'” The report continues: “He then slapped her in the face and pullled her hair before her friends, Jessica Motta, Kayla Hungle and Daniel Ball attempted to intervene. Hungle attempted to prevent Taj from further attacking Cordato and was punched in the face by him. Motta then intervened and was punched in the face, pulled to the ground by her hair and kicked in the stomach and ribs. When Ball tried to stop the assaults, he was thrown onto the C-Train tracks where he fell onto his back and was spat upon by Taj. During the melee, Taj called Cordato a ‘Jewish piece of (crap).'”
“The Canadian Arab Federation has not only not uttered one word of condemnation for this horrific attack, but they have remained silent in the face of arson attacks in Canada directed against shuls and Jewish community centers and violent attacks on Jewish students on local university campuses,” said Weinstein. He also noted that yet another anti-Semitic attack occurred as recently as Friday, July 18th, 2008, when “a Jewish camp in northern Ontario was attacked. No one was hurt but property was smashed and tires slashed, sending a clear message. The camp staff was told by the town that Jews were no longer welcome in their stores.”
Weinstein strongly asserts that, “It is the ideology of The Muslim Brotherhood that justifies and promotes attacks on Jews in Canada.” Regarding the issue of the burgeoning rate of Muslim immigrants to Canada, Weinstein declares that, “some kind of form must be signed that prohibits entry into Canada of people that believe in the Muslim Brotherhood ideology. This would make it possible to conduct denaturalization and deportation proceedings.”
