It has been an incredible year for the Jewish Defence League.
All of our members and supporters gave of their time and energy to make a positive impact on our way of life which is under threat from radical Islam. We have exposed many Islamic extremists groups and people.
The JDL has opened up in Montreal and Vancouver. We are also intent on expanding to other cities in Canada and also in the USA. All of our expansion plans will be fulfilled in the new year.
Please join us for a toast to the New Year and enjoy some sushi!
The JDL picket outside the home of Barry Sherman was successful. The Jewish Defence League members were very respectful and did not impede traffic.
I was disappointed to hear from [host of the fundraiser] Barry Sherman that he was not aware of the Liberal Party of Canada position of the Iran Nuclear Deal. CIJA has not done their job of educating the Jewish community of the Iran Nuclear Deal. This has to change.
The Iran Nuclear Deal gives Iran the capacity to make many nuclear weapons and will also provide Iran with 150 billion dollars. That money will be given to fund international terrorism.
There are many radical Islamic centers that has a relationship with Justin Trudeau. Those radical Islamic group’s will be emboldened from the deal. Now is the time to speak the truth. For the sake of peace, this deal must be stopped.
Liberal party Leader Justin Trudeau was greeted with calls of “We love our prime minister,” “Harper” and even “no traitors here” as he arrived at an Aug. 26 fundraising event at the home of pharmaceutical magnate and philanthropist Barry Sherman.
About 30 protesters were in attendance, carrying Canadian and Israeli flags and signs comparing the recent Iran nuclear deal with the Munich peace agreement between Adolf Hitler and then-British prime minister Neville Chamberlain, which allowed Germany to annex portions of Czechoslovakia. The demonstrators stood peacefully outside Sherman’s home as Trudeau arrived for the $1,500-a-head event.
A Toronto Jewish group made the rare move of protesting one of its own community leaders on Wednesday evening, staging a picket outside billionaire Barry Sherman’s house during his cocktail fundraiser for the Liberal party.
About 30 protesters from the Jewish Defence League lined the street out front of Sherman’s lavish north Toronto home, holding Israeli and Canadian flags.
The protesters waved the flags of Canada, Israel and JDL welcoming the distinguished guests with signs warning of the perils embodied in the nuclear deal, recently signed by the world powers and Iran, to the security and the very existence of Israel.
One of the guests, Dorothy Shoichet, Skycharter’s chairwoman, went out to the protesters to inquire why they were picketing there. Some tried to convince her that the Liberal Party should not be trusted because of its support of the Iran nuclear deal. Dorothy admitted that there are major flaws in the deal like the “dumb” decision to let the Iranians themselves to be responsible for gathering the ground samples around the nuclear facilities for the international routine inspections. However, she told her interlocutors that their demonstration is unnecessary, and that they should have raised their concerns at the fundraising event inside Sherman’s house.
The Jewish Defence League of Canada has, not surprisingly, decided to trust Netanyahu and follow his lead. They will be picketing outside of the Sherman residence, hoping to persuade other invited guests to reconsider their support of the Liberals and to stand firmly and supportively behind one of Israel’s closest friends and ally, Stephen Harper.
This will not be a protest against the generous work of the Shermans and their philanthropic accomplishments. It will be a protest against a political party that is supportive of a deal considered dangerous for Israel and world Jewry.
I will be joining the protest, because I have no reason to doubt Netanyahu, and I have every reason in the world to support Harper.
Sherman, 73, is Chairman and CEO of Apotex Inc., whose net worth is estimated at $ 3.7 billion, and was ranked 7th wealthiest Canadian (he may be down to 14th according to other sources) and 363rd richest in the world by Forbes. Sherman has donated some $50 million to the United Jewish Appeal, and to several Toronto-area community centers and hospitals.
Last week, the Canadian JDL called on its supporters to protest the fundraiser for Justin Trudeau, stating: “It is absolutely wrong for a leading philanthropist in the Jewish community to support a man that would support the regime of Iran. Many people have contacted the JDL and have asked for our engagement. The Jewish Defense League will therefore have a picket outside the fundraiser for Justin Trudeau,” and they gave the billionaires address at “Corner of Old Colony Road and Gerald Street.”
On Saturday August 15th at 5:00 pm, supporters of the Regime in Iran will be holding a pro Nuclear Iran Deal Rally. The organizers hate Israel. And the JDL will hold a counter rally.
The regime of Iran can’t be trusted. This is a regime that supplies weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah. They chant “Death to America.” This deal will strengthen terrorist groups throughout the world. In the name of peace, say no to the deal.
Palestine House, a Mississauga–based organization representing the Canadian-Palestinian community, held (August 5) a demonstration in front of the Israeli Consulate in Toronto, to protest the murder of Ali Dawabsah, a Palestinian toddler who was burnt to death in a premeditated arson most probably carried out by extremist Jewish settlers. (…)
On the other side of the street dozens of pro-Israel activists – Jews and non Jews – came to protest against Palestinian terrorism. Members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL)waived the yellow flags of JDL alongside signs illustrating in writing and pictures the terrorist nature of Hamas. Some of these signs read: “Palestinian, Arab and Hamas target and kill hundreds of Israeli children,” “Hamas values its children for war and death,” “Pick a side: Hamas or peace and freedom,” “Criminal charges against Palestine House, “160 Arab children died building tunnels for Hamas” and “This is creeping jihad. Free Canuckistan! from jihad zombies.”
Meir Weinstein, National Director of JDL Canada, told CIJnews that his organization will continue to confront Palestine House in its demonstrations against Israel.
I attended the Toronto Rally to Prevent a Nuclear Iran. I was very disappointed with the turnout. Approximately 250-300 people attended. Over 20 well financed organizations were involved in the promotion of the rally. Many well paid Rabbis and other Jewish leaders spoke.
I was contacted the night before the rally and asked that JDL not be visible at the Rally.
At this critical time in our history, the Jewish people need unity and not deception in order to justify over inflated salaries from leaders that have little appeal to our community.
We have Jewish leaders and Synagogues that roll out the red carpet for Islamic groups and leaders that are part of the radical Islamic network.
We have Jewish leaders that bash PM Stephen Harper and attempt to gather support for the Liberal Party of Canada and the NDP Party of Canada.
Both of these political parties would encourage the promotion of radical Islam and the BDS movement.
Now is the time to move away from weak failed leadership and to support the Jewish Defence League.
I am committed to opening up chapters and branches of the Jewish Defence League in other cities and reviving the Jewish Defence League in the USA.
I find it incredible that the B’nai Brith would claim some kind of a victory against the Al-Quds Day event. There is no victory.
Here are the facts:
The Al-Quds Day event went ahead as planned. They assembled at the USA Consulate and delivered the most vicious antisemitic speeches and then marched with complete police support to Queens Park. The police closed off half of University Avenue for Al Quds day.
Where was B’nai Brith and why did they not assist the Jewish Defence League?
Also and most importantly, I have plans for the Jewish Defence League to open for business again in the USA.
Give JDL your financial support and watch us do that which must be done. And say goodbye to weak leadership.
The following video from Al Quds Day is a dangerous example of Islamic youth being fed a diet of radical Islam and violence. The Minister of Education and police agencies must investigate the schools and Islamic learning centers that encourages such hate and violence.
The Jewish Defence League will also investigate some Islamic learning centers, camps and mosques. The emergence of a radical Islamic youth movement in Canada is a threat to National Security. The Jewish Defence League will make this a priority and would like to establish contact with informants and persons with security knowledge.
HERE is one report on the JDL counter-protest, from CIJ News.
A Canadian Islamic Shiite website affiliated with the organizers of al-Quds Day, harshly attacks Ontario Premier, Kathleen Wynne for her support of Israel, implicitly mocks her for being a gay, and calls women who wore short clothes in the hottest day of month, “sluts” and “filth.”
The website Crescent International, which presents itself as “a publication of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT)” headed by Imam Zafar Bangash, posted a news report on al-Quds Day rally, which took place on July 11 in front of the American Consulate in Toronto.
“Organizers of the Quds Day rally can be truly proud of their achievement in bringing out thousands of people onto the streets of Toronto for the annual Quds Day rally,” the article reads emphasizing in this regard that last Saturday (July 11) was “the hottest day this Ramadan.”
The article, signed by crescent-online.net, accuses “some Queen’s Park politicians” of being “Zionist puppets” who “try desperately to prevent any criticism of its [Israel’s] atrocious record.”
“Kathleen Wynne, the Ontario premier and an apology for a woman, is an arch-Zionist. She has become a regular fixture at the ‘Walk for Israel’ march. These Zionist stooges will not walk for Canada but ask ‘how high sir’ if their Zionists masters order them to jump.”
The Jewish Defence League (JDL), that organized the counter protest against al-Quds Day rally, was also a prime target of the Canadian pro Iranian site.
“They [JDL activists] had even brought some scantily clad Zionist sluts thinking this would detract committed Muslims. What these enemies of humanity do not realize is that committed Muslims are not attracted to such filth.”
In his speech at al-Quds Day, Imam Zafar Bangash, who is affiliated with Crescent International site, expressed similar views. Bangash called the activists of the Jewish Defence League (JDL) “criminals” and mercenaries,” who came to protest against al-Quds Day only because they were given free beer.
He also called for overthrowing the Saudi regime and defeating PM Harper in October federal elections.
“I want all of you to, please, come out and send these Zionist puppets back home. If Harper wants to go to live in Israel he can go there. He does not belong in Canada. He is a Zionist puppet… the Zionism is racism, the Zionist ideology is anti human, the Zionists are against humanity… their end is coming near.”
We are living in very historical times.
The nuclear weapons deal with Iran is very dangerous.
The mobs that gather for Al Quds Day loudly call for the destruction of Israel.
And it is the regime in Iran that provides weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah to attack Israel.
So how do I feel?
My father lost almost all his family during the Holocaust.
He experienced a life of total fear. And I feel very grateful to live in an era with the rebirth of the Jewish State. And that Jewish State has the capacity to tell the world that Never Again will the Jewish people live a life of fear while the world goes about it’s business.
If the world decides to assist Iranian efforts to destroy the Jewish people, then the Jewish State can employ the Samson Plan.
So I feel confident that Never Again has relevance and meaning today.
And I will do everything I can to rally support for Israel and the Jewish People.
I will make every effort to establish chapters of JDL throughout Canada and the USA.
Our Jewish leaders are silent and I refuse to be silent.
