Jewish Defence League welcomed back to Calgary: Diverse group comes together to say “Never Again”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

The Jewish Defence League was welcomed back to Calgary. Rabbi Meir Weinstein is the head of the Toronto based Jewish Defence League, or the JDL, in Canada and he spoke at the downtown Calgary event on Sunday night. 

The JDL takes never again seriously. They are committed to never again stand by idly while Israel and the Jewish people are attacked. The JDL does this through education, security, self defence training, protests and media monitoring.

Canada isn’t immune to anti-semitism. You just won’t hear about it in the mainstream media. Mob violence broke out in July, 2014 when a pro Israel group counter protested a pro Palestinian rally in front of Calgary City Hall. The Hamilton family was sent to the hospital that day after being beaten in the streets.

In the wake of that mob violence and in the face of rising tide of anti-semitic violence sweeping through Europe, a group of people from all backgrounds and faiths decided something had to be some to defend the Jewish community in Calgary.

There are two things that are so profound about the group of people bringing the JDL back to Calgary. The first was that they aren’t all Jews.They are people from different faiths, and diverse backgrounds who all support the right of the Jewish state to exist and they are willing to fight anti-semitism wherever they find it. Secondly, this is a group who aren’t waiting around for someone else - or the government - to solve their problems.

They’re doing it for themselves. That’s the Alberta way, no matter what faith you are.

I stand with Israel!

The media runs our society now. Useful idiots on the left are too ignorant and easily mislead, and the Gov is too afraid to go against the media. It’s unhealthy of course. The correct thing to do, is force the media to tell the truth. You’d not see all ppl change their views of course, but enough to keep us on the right side of things!

I’ll never forget a story I read some years ago concerning Israelis settlers. After another one of many peace deals was made, lsraelis militia forcibly removed some lsraelis settlers who had set up one of their community farms in Palistinian territory with a bunch of high tech greenhouses producing fruit and veggies which had become quite profitable. They had to leave everything behind so all the Palestinians had to do was move in and start making money. Instead they destroyed the entire farm. This told me all I needed to know about the hateful mindset of Palistinian Muslims.

Deborah,
I am not sure if you know this, but Israel has had several embargoes placed on it from the EU, the Islamic Controlled UN, China, possibly Iman Obama, and I think King Selfie Tool will be imposing something soon as well.

In the Bible it says that all nations will be against Israel, and it looks like that has now happened. In the end, the nations and the people who curse Israel will pay!

When Harper was PM, he told Israel “You will never stand alone”. I stand with Harper and the Jews.

When Scum Trudeau had the election purchased for him, one of his sidekicks told the Jews, “Israel, you are no longer our friend like you used to be”. I think that it was the Minister of Foreign Affairs, I forget his name, who said this.

I most certainly do not stand with the Liberals.

Standing with Israel has been a given with Canada, until this government. Most Canadians won’t be changing that sentiment just because it is being presented as ‘politically correct’ by the gov. of the day to also stand with Palestine, even going so far as to refund Hamas with our tax dollars.

Yes I stand with Israel’s right to exist, defend itself and live in peace.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

it always starts with the Jews but it never ends with the jews!!!
I stand with Israel and the Jews, today tomorrow and always….

This of course is all Israel’s fault because they should just let the poor poor palistinians attack and murder their citizens at will, and not respond.
The UNRWA is directly funding and supporting Hamas, Trudope knows this, yet he still is funding them in the millions. Th all knowing brainless ski bum is also giving all the convicted terrorists their Canadian Citizenship back as well!
Heaven help us when the Rebublicans take power in the coming US election!
I have not seen any fruit or product from Israel in quite a while for sale here in Canada.

Israel is the fuse that will ignite the next war.
This war will be a global proxy war that the world has never seen.

Israel can not be allowed to fall!

I too stand with Israel! They have been fighting Mooslim terror for many years and I believe a Biblical prophecy regarding Israel will be what comes back to bite Obumer & TruDopes’ asses hard!

Canada isn’t immune to antisemitism. YES we know that by some of the antisemitic trolls on these Rebel commentary pages.

I used to buy oranges from Israel—can’t find them anywhere.,

How can we assist Israel financially? I don’t see a lot of products from Israel, other than the jewelry that I buy from Winners. But I would like to help them in anyway that I can.

Many of my friends, ( We are all prior service ),
Have flown to Israel year after year to volunteer with the IDF.
We know that Israel is attacked daily.
We know that the air raid sirens go off several times a day.
We know that politicians like Trudope and Obuthead are morons, and both have left Israel out in the cold!

I, We, stand with Israel!

God bless the Jewish people! Your contributions to humanity are many and leave those who will condemn you in the dust bin of history, for they haven’t contributed anything to the good humanity. I stand with Israel and I always will!
