Muslim nations invent “different set of rules” for Israeli athletes (Guest host: David Menzies)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

(Tonight, David Menzies guest hosts for Ezra Levant...) Even in the world of fun and games, there’s a different set of rules for Israel. Case in point:

The Abu Dhabi Grand Slam of Judo is forbidding Israeli athletes to wear national emblems. And if an Israeli competitor wins a medal, the Israeli national anthem will not be played.

This is just the latest example of a long standing phenomenon:

Israel’s participation in international sports typically leads to hostile reactions and even boycotts from Arab or Muslim organizations or athletes.

And it goes beyond athletics:

Lebanon, Tunisia and Qatar banned the movie Wonder Woman because the titular character is played by an Israeli actress.

I wonder how such a storyline would play out on the world stage if the roles were reversed, if Israel demanded the same conditions its neighbouring countries typically do? I can already hear the cries of “Islamophobia!”

TONIGHT: I'm joined by author and activist Pamela Geller to discuss whether or not these "anti-Israel" stunts are really outright anti-Semitism under another name; then Quebec broadcaster Eric Duhaime reports the immediate fallout from Quebec's bill banning face coverings in the public sector. Will it stand up to a court challenge?

FINALLY: Your messages about last night's monologue about the NFL!

I hope Pamela has someone to produce her a great promotional video for her book like whoever produced Tommy Robinson’s show promo. It is an important subject which need maximum exposure and us who watch the rebel need to help and spread links on their facebook or other social media forums. Thanks Dave. Interesting topics and often entertaining as well as informing.

- If they won’t treat everyone the same, Abu Dhabi should be banned from holding international tournaments.

- At the UN every nation gets a vote. The Muslim block is the biggest block. As the UN gained more power & influence the Muslim block gained more as well. Nationalism was looked down on by the UN as the leftists who instituted the holocaust moved the Nazis from the left side of the political spectrum to the right side so they could repackage their disgusting policies.

- Don’t mistake what the mainstream media says for what the people actually believe. It would be interesting if Trudeau undermined his base & lost the next election over face coverings after he & his spin masters insisted that Harper lost the last election over wanting a similar ban.

Rebalation said: “I don’t think they should ban the niqab, I think all niqab-wearing families should be taken prisoner. We’re at war with those trying to establish a global caliphate, and wearer’s of the niqab are a big part of that push. If this were WWII, and you saw a bunch of folks wearing Nazi uniforms, complete with swastikas, they’d be taken prisoner immediately – no questions asked.”

A hijab will do nicely, without covering their faces in a niqab or burqa. I see women wearing hijabs all over the place in Montreal, and I work with many of them too. Even a small girl, maybe 6 years old, on the Metro train. She was with whom I assume is her Father (maybe her husband for all I know.) A woman standing in front of me saw this child wearing a hijab, the woman put her head on her arm and when she looked at me she had tears in her eyes.

CTV News net just reported that 3 more Muslims were paid 31 million by the Canadian Government. They were paid this money because when they went to Syria, they were mistreated, and Canadian authorities didn’t do enough. I guess they got the extra million because the Dollar is down.
This is getting unbelievable.

Eric Duhaime—proved once again that when he gets wound up, he is one of the best journalists in Quebec. I hope in the near future that we can see more of him.
I worry about people that don’t want the NDP to do well in Quebec. Jagmeet Singh is good enough to go up against Trudeau and split the left vote in Quebec. (That is if his Turban is accepted ) If Singh can take 40 seats in Canada from the Liberals, the Conservatives have a chance for a majority. When a Party has a weak Leader like Scheer, you have to depend on your enemy to do your work for you.
I have seen Singh in action a few times, he is charismatic. Maybe when the CPC see his abilities, they will understand that they have to make a change.

Thanks Leviticus.
Rebalation Rebelation, now that is a conclusion that connects all the dots!

Pamela – thank-you!

Good to hear from Eric, really appreciate the perspective from Quebec, and with the identity hiding issue (niqab) , the perspective from the center of the debate. Terrific passionate interview. Thank God the NDP aren’t showing in Quebec, I can only pray, and it looks possible, that the liberals will tank there as well. I am grateful for Jagmeet Singh’s gaining the ndp leadership, as I think Canadians who don’t realize his pro-Khalistan stance will split the vote quite nicely. It is amazing to me the number of Canadians who refuse to recognize that Islam is already sitting on their face. This country is in very big trouble. Islam is sitting just deep enough below the surface for the progressives to be able to continue to convince themselves that they are sticking up for what is right. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are in so much trouble, and the brain washed zombie apologists are going to be the end of this country with this misguided support of Islam. We will get what we deserve for being so damned stupid. Never mind history, never mind what is right in front of your face. Too bad for those of us who understand the threat. We are all going to hell in the same hand basket.

Menzies, you said it, “perversely ironic.”
Great show.

The sports issue is an easy solution. The sports executive, just have to grow a spine and BAN any country, most of which will probably be Muslim, from being able to participate in any competitions unless they get the politics out of their sport.

I agree with Pamela, that the real concern is the world’s sanctioning of this Jew hatred. “The world has lost it’s way.”

Peter Babich, I am with you on your comments below and the frustration, for sure.

Actually Terry turn the other cheek isn’t literal. It means get woke.

I have seen atrocities throughout history and I’m sure everyone has thought it was the end. The Jews in the 40s surely did. I see another one coming and I hope I’m on the right side because I can’t go to the other side. I think California will be in the ocean soon and provide the moat. Genghis Khan obliterated one third of the population and actually affected climate change. Now one tenth of the world share his DNA. Not me. I will never submit

Peter Babich; Considering the source of your neighbor’s bigotry I’d say that’s part for the course. But I understand, we’re all sick of this shit.

I’m sorry. I’m absolutely livid. Living in 1984. One should never bite the hand that feeds. The hatred for the ones that instituted the freedoms that you live under. Even after I helped landscape and deliver trees,soil and shrubs, built the deck and layout the fence with practical advice, my Pakistani neighbour has the audacity to call me racist because I don’t like brown people. I’m married to a brown person and I immigrated a family. My pride and joy son is half asian. I sick of being called a homophobe because I don’t want my son taught that anal sex is a form of contraception. I’m constantly mocked for being Catholic because I belong to an organization that is in constant scandal because of their heretics. I’m tired of being judged by my skin colour, which I have no control over

One of the few times I have been on Quebec’s side. I think the last time was when Lougheed and Levesque kinda did a tag team match against Papa Doc.

I re-checked my past comment about the Constitution Act. The Federal Government still has the right to disallow provincial legislation. If Baby Doc is serious about anti-face covering legislation being seriously islamophobic, then he just has to pass federal legislation disallowing Quebec’s legislation. Pretty simple to do if that is your moral belief, unless you are the amoral leader of the Lying Party of Corruption.

If the Judo Federation had an sense sportsmanship & decency , there would be no tolerance for the
anti-Semitism that will be showcased at The Abu Dhabi Grand Slam of Judo. Any country that bans a nation’s flag and refuses to play that nation’s anthem when a gold medal is won, should be boycotted.

FIFA are a bunch of cowards to allow Islamists to steer world soccer in this way! If countries of the Middle East refuse to play Israel, fine them and don’t allow them to compete in World Cups.

I always enjoy Pamela Geller’s interviews. I look forward to reading her book.

Great to see Eric Duhaime, and, to hear how ordinary Quebecers are reacting to Bill -62. The Angus Reid poll was very telling. English msm outlets are demonizing the legislation. Mayor Jim Watson of Ottawa chimed in too. He and Wynne must have coordinated their statements.
Face coverings are offensive, concealment in a civilized society such as Canada is one of those things we shouldn’t be expected to tolerate.

And yet the useful idiots blame Israel for everything when it is their enemies that fear compromise and peace and a shared state.

It will be in Canada soon enough.

The evil cult of islam is winning.

Truly sad.
