Hate crime? Toronto man wearing “Infidel” patch stabbed for allegedly offending Muslims

Rebel Staff
 

Jonathan D. Halevi reports at CIJNEWS.com that a 56-year-old man was attacked by three men in a dispute allegedly involving the victim's "Infidel" jacket patch.

The incident took place on Sunday, September 20 at a Toronto sports bar. The man was treated for "multiple stab wounds."

On October 29, CIJNews contacted police, asking if they were treating the stabbing "as a hate crime/terrorist attack/criminal attack":

In response to the query, the Police Media Relations Officer wrote in an email sent to CIJnews that she “was unable to locate an incident with the location you have provided” and asked for “more information to follow up.”

CIJnews provided her with the names of the victim and the Detective who interrogated him in hospital. The Police Media Relations Officer has not yet responded to the latest correspondence.

The 56 year-old victim, who asked not be identified due to security concerns, told CIJnews that the stabbing attack took place at the entrance to the Sports Lounge Bar at Kennedy Road and St. Clair. A devout Christian who also follows the Jewish Torah, the victim was a regular at the bar on Sundays and was not shy about speaking about his criticism of Islam. The jacket he wore on the day of the stabbing had a patch on its front that reads “Infidel” in English and in Arabic (كافر).

At one point of that evening, he went out to bring in an amplifier from his wife’s car. At the entrance to the bar, three unfamiliar males stopped him. One of them, a white 6' 4" male with dark hair and many tattoos on his body, presented himself as a Muslim, confronted him and inquired about the “Infidel” patch. After explaining to them that he is a Christian who collects patches, he felt intimidated as the three started closing in on him while his back was facing the entrance door with no way to escape.

He was told: “You offended my friend” and then the shortest guy, who stood suspiciously quiet and abstained from engaging in conversation with him, pulled a knife from his friend’s jacket and started stabbing him repeatedly in the abdomen.

The full report appears at CIJNews.com.

(NOTE that it features images of the victim's treated wounds that some may find disturbing.)

Relax everyone, the cops & the PC will make sure the victim is the one causing hate. It will most likely be him charged with hate from the human rights kangaroo court. It will all work out in the end & show how islam is not the problem & is somehow the victim.

We are told to be a tolerant nation. We won’t be able to tolerate their hate much longer. However I do question one aspect of the story: What is a devout Christian doing at a bar let alone Muslims? But I digress, maybe they were just walking by and it just happened outside the door of the place.

Very sad for the guy who got stabbed. I have no tolerance for such a thing. I think this is a perfect reason to bring back the death penalty. If you are caught doing it, you should get the needle. Intentionally being stabbed is attempted murder. There has to be some retribution, some justice.

What are muslims doing in a place that serves alcohol anyway?

Jay sorry if reality hurts , but we have to live in it

Atikokenconservative, I do not see any evidence either that the three men were related to the wife, let alone that they were her brothers. They were probably inebriated thugs who didn’t like the looks of a guy spouting off about his various religious views at a bar.

Jay: I’ve looked and looked, and I can’t find a single reference to your possibility that the three men were related to the victim’s wife, or anything remotely resembling that. Your comment was the first mention of it. I can only conclude that you just threw it in the comments to deflect and confuse. I guess I should offer congratulations, as it appears you were successful, to a degree. But really, WTF? And this thing about the man carrying the amplifier, again, WTF does that have to do with anything? Now, do you know more about this story than anyone else, including Halevi? I ask because you’re also the first and so far original source I could find saying anything about this actually being a case of the establishment’s owner and henchmen dealing with a guy trying to pay a bar bill. The victim says it was because of his religious views, and I can’t find a single reference to anything that suggests otherwise, except your strange, distracting post. Do you personally know anyone involved? If not, would you care to share where you heard these things from? Otherwise, maybe just stop posting such stupid, childish, patently obvious attempts at distraction here and make a more serious effort to actually deal with reality instead of just playing games.

All I know any attack or violence against a Christian, especially a white male, is never going to classified as a hate crime. Remember only certain groups matter.

Outstanding Point Colin Cramton.

Jay, such an odd question to deflect yet again the fact that it is you who is trying to change the article by implying various instances. Your question is moot, has nothing to do with what was reported, you are basing your questions on your assumptions and hypothetical scenarios. I shan’t play your little game of “what if”.
commented 2015-11-02 15:27:43 -0500
Hyacinth, I do not know if you are married or not, but would you let your adult husband carry your amplifier into a bar? Would you not want to carry it yourself?

If the man was really 56 years old as reported in the story, wouldn’t he have let his wife carry her own amplifier into the bar?

That is what I responded to Jay not what you are now trying to imply. It is you who is jumping to various conclusions not others. To quote you yet again "did you ever think that maybe, just maybe, the three men were not related to the wife at all? that it was the proprietor of the bar and his two goons trying to stop the man from bringing his wife’s amplifier into the bar as a payment for his bar bill? "

People seem to like jumping to conclusions when there is no evidence to back them up.

The timing of this attack is just after Justin’s election as Prime Minister. I do not think that this attack would have happened if Stephen Harper was still the Prime Minister. Watch the number of these attacks increase dramatically as police inaction on these attacks continues.

Sorry, no muslims. They hate our culture, our ethics, our society. They come here for economic reasons only and then demand that we pander to them. NO. I will not. Terrorist cells and their spawn are terrorists in training.

Hyacinth, the report does not even imply that the man was “too physically feeble” to carry his wife’s amplifier.

My response was in regards to yours:

THE SLAMMERS ARE NOT HAPPY

They’re not happy in Gaza
They’re not happy in Egypt
They’re not happy in Libya
They’re not happy in Morocco
They’re not happy in Iraq
They’re not happy in Iran
They’re not happy in Yemen
They’re not happy in Afghanistan
They’re not happy in Pakistan
They’re not happy in Syria
They’re not happy in Lebanon

So, where are they happy?

They’re happy in Australia
They’re happy here in Canada
They’re happy in England
They’re happy in France
They’re happy in Italy
They’re happy in Germany
They’re happy in Sweden
They’re happy in U.S.A.
They’re happy in Norway
They’re happy in Holland
They’re happy in Denmark

Basically, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim
and unhappy in every country that is!

AND WHO DO THEY BLAME?
Not Islam.
Not their leadership.
Not themselves.

They blame the country they are happy in.
And then they want to change those countries into the shitholes that they unhappy in.

Excuse me, but I can’t help wondering…
How batshit crazy can you get?

And so it begins. While our liberal elites in Ottawa and Toronto are busy celebrating the anointing of their messiah, the very minority, the cult of islam, is empowered to start their campaign of murder and intimidation. Our children and their children will not thank us for doing nothing and allowing our government to embrace the 21’s century’s new Nazis.

No, the lefty trolls are on other threads attacking Ezra, attacking “Conservatives” and generally attacking the Rebel. They’re too cowardly to come onto a thread where their lies about “Religion Of Peace” have been exposed!

“If the man was really 56 years old as reported in the story, wouldn’t he have let his wife carry her own amplifier into the bar …”

Meaning what? At 56 a man is too physically feeble to carry an amplifier? Isn’t that age bias (prejudice)? Or is it a belief that a man should be exempt from menial labor if it concerns his wife? Which is it? Prejudice or belief?
Don’t bother answering Jay, we all know stupid can’t be fixed.

I think Edward Jobin makes a good point that pressure has to be kept up so the police realize this is not going to go away… One of the faults in too many similar cases is that the “authorities” involved are not NAMED… If a “police media relations officer” is bobbing and weaving, as may be the case here, then he/she should be named… The public has a right to know since they are public servants… The same holds true for far too many cases where magistrates or judges make obviously silly or even dangerous judgements but are not named in the news stories… Don’t let them carry on in anonymity…

Jay Kelly why would he let his wife carry it if he was 56? And who said they were his wifes brothers?
