Ezra Levant’s Yom Kippur message to liberal Jews —and everyone else (Full length)

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I shared a speech I gave to a synagogue for Yom Kippur. Now, I'm not particularly religious, but I was still asked to give the talk (and I promised not to mention Trump or Hillary or Trudeau or Obama!)

This is the first time we've taken a complete segment of my show out from the Premium Content section, but I did it because I'd like to hear as many reactions as possible.

(You can leave a comment below, or watch the video for ways to contact me.)

Because what I found so interesting was the reaction to my speech that night at the synagogue.

Many people in the congregation were angry at me — one even called me a "racist." 

However, others came up to me later and told me they agreed with my message. 

And what struck me was that the two groups represented two very different kinds of Jews...

But my message isn't just for Jews on Yom Kippur. It's really about the future of Canada:

Because the Liberals' refusal to vet immigrants for Canadian values could make this great country a very unsafe nation for the Jewish people, and every citizen...

Dear Ezra:

I’m one of those that agree with everything that you mentioned in your address at the synagogue for Yom Kippur, except for just one thing. There is no such thing as Islamaphobia. A phobia is an irrational fear of some particular thing. For example, Billy Bob Thornton has a phobia for antique furniture. True! He cannot be in a room with antique furniture. Completely irrational. It is not irrational to have a fear of Islam. Thirteen hundred plus years of conquest (Hitler could only ever dream of such a thing), millions slaughtered over that time in the name of god, an Islamic war that will never end until either total Islamic domination or a nuclear holocaust started by Iran. To be afraid of that is not irrational.

We did not fight the first and second world wars in Europe. It was the second and third world wars. The first world war never ended.

My children are screwed due to the spineless liberals and conservatives we have governing us. I fear for their very lives.

Please keep up the fight. You are a warrior.

I lived in Toronto for 15 years, painfully necessary for employment. Whilst there I met many of the Jewish Faith on both sides of the spectrum as Ezra alludes to. He is bang on in his assessment.

Sometimes the truth is painful but it is so necessary. I do agree that there are forces at work to change our culture, and our core values. Theodore Hertzel, who is now referred to as a visionary or prophet, tried to warn European Jews and radically spoke of the Jews going home to Israel but many could not bear to hear his message. We should weigh very carefully what is going on around us and do everything we can to preserve truth that leads to liberty and life for all. The one thing we need more than anything else right now is truth.

Jews in the US of A are huge Democratic supporters of killary klinton.

Jews in the UK have supported islamic immigration.

Jews in france are starting to see those follies.

Jews in canadallah are LIEberal supporters and if they do not smarten up they will soon become as oppressed here – and the Calgary riots showed that in a small way.

But they will not see this until it actually happens.

And it is coming.

The truth is not wanted.

You would think they would be a bit smarter after all the history they can quote.

Not going to happen.

They are exactly like the arrogant, entitled, spoiled and smug Canadians that seem to be increasing at an incredibly rapid pace.

You are not a racist – you are a realist.

Excellent show and extremely well stated.

My best.

Ezra, wishing you a Happy New Year and thank you for your honesty and dedication to the truth no matter how harsh it sounds. So many of our Jews are sooo blind and ignorant. They have never learned the lessons of the Shoah and will not listen no matter how rational the words sounds.
When anti-Semitic incidents happens,the only time these do gooders may get upset about is a swastika painted directly on their own garage door not their neighbours!!
I do not know what it will take to wake them up but we sure need you and others who have the “coconuts” to speak out.
Thank you , thank you thank you.
commented 2016-10-15 11:10:40 -0400
Try speaking to reform liberal Jews about what is antisemitism…I have just about given up my trying to educate my family on Islam, but at Rosh Hashanah the discussion went to Black Lives Matter and I mentioned that their platform called Israel an Apartheid State commiting Genocide on the Palestinians and so it is antisemitic. This did not go over well, none of my arguements seemed to matter to them about how singiling out the one Jewish State and only the Jewish State for “criticism” that rightly applies elsewhere is like a blood libel against Jews.

They are blind Ezra.
commented 2016-10-14 20:34:53 -0400
Great job Ezra. We have a right to look at what others believe; we have a right to investigate any and all philosophies, religious premises, etc. Period. I guess the new thing is to deny that right of every man to peaceful inquiry and expression of findings with bombastic speech. “Reasonophobia,” yes, let’s call it “reasonophobia.” There, I said it.
commented 2016-10-14 19:58:52 -0400
First. I want it known that I am not anti-Semitic. HOWEVER!

Lately I have been doing a lot of research into the spread of Communism from Marx and Engels to Lenin and post Stalinist Russia.

What I have discovered is that a HUGE proportion of those actively and vehemently spreading Communism through subversion, espionage. violence and murder were Jews. The leader of the Cheka coming immediately to mind. There are several Jewish websites that deny this however once you really dig into it the facts become overwhelming. We are not talking about a couple here folks. I think it would be very safe to say that most, probably 80% or more of the leaders and pushers of Communism were Jews. In fact most of those involved with espionage in the west and working directly for the GRU and NKVD were Jews.

I love Ezra and I think he is doing a lot for this Country. However I would not put my faith in western Jews to be at all sympathetic to Conservative views. They are either far left or ultra selfish Capitalists. Odd really ???

The power of the Jewish lobby is very evident in Ottawa where I was visiting and noted the MASSIVE holocaust memorial they are building beside the War Museum. This thing is HUGE !! I could not believe it!

I am involved in getting the Memorial to the Victims of Communism built. Or at least trying to help. The National Capital Commission and the idiots at Canadian Heritage bowed to the Left and had the original site shut down because it was the Conservatives that wanted it there. They now intent to build a court house for BILLIONS and name it after Soviet mole Pierre Elliott Trudeau who was appointed by Soviet mole Lester B. Pearson. The purpose to provide Liberal appointed judges with a cozy tunnel to the Supreme Court from their chambers. They said the MVC design looked too Stalinesque!

HOWEVER they ok’d a MASSIVE memorial to the JEWISH Holocaust!!!! I say Jewish because it is in the shape of a Star of David. So it does not represent the other 6-7 MILLION murdered in the holocaust who were NOT Jews.

I am all for a holocaust memorial. However this situation should be reversed. The reason is this…

1. 30,000 JEWISH holocaust survivors came to Canada. There is now about 400,000 Jews in Canada. 6 Million Jews were murdered.
2. There are 8,000,000 people living in Canada today who were directly affected by Communism. I might add that also includes Jewish people. To date over 97 MILLION people murdered by Communism.

The Liberals, NCC and Canadian Heritage now want to build the Victims of Communism in human scale and behind a sh*t load of trees so you cant see it from any road and hardly from any vantage point. But the holocaust memorial TOWERS over the street and is almost as high as the Canadian War Museum.

One can also argue that Hitler’s distaste for the Jews is largely derived from their Communist leanings. One can also effectively argue that WW2 would likely NOT have happened if Communism was not infecting Germany. There were over 400 running street battles between Hitler’s brown shirts and Jewish led Communists. This is not a lie, check it out for yourself. almost 85% of the Communist groups in Germany were led by Jews.

So why the big cover-up? why the overpowering sympathy for only ONE ethic group that actually did not suffer any more than other ethic groups? My only answer to this is that many Jews simply don’t want you to know the truth. They use the holocaust like a sword. How can you criticize a people that have gone through that and other purges? Well, its not easy. But the truth is being twisted and its ugly. Why should the millions of victims of communism be treated as second hand citizens only because the majority of people today only listen to propaganda? They have no brain of their own.

Yes, I want a holocaust memorial. But I want one to represent the ENTIRE holocaust not just the Jews. I want it to reflect Canada’s involvement which is actually very tiny. It in no way compares to the numbers of Hungarians, Yugoslavs, Poles, Russians, Finns, Ukrainians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Czechs, Germans, Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian etc. etc. Canadians that were murdered and suffered. Like I said, Jews also suffered under Communism which is a little ironic.

In fact a few of the loudest voices in Ottawa against the VTCM were JEWS!!!!! Jewish lawyers, Architects, Special Interest Groups etc.

No one, and I mean NO ONE thinks this is an issue and it is VERY SAD.

This is either a case of MONEY and POWER to sway the politicos and non-jew politically correct guilt or again, they want anything to do with Communism shut down so people don’t start asking the real pointed questions.

Like I said, I have respect for many Jewish people but I also don’t understand them. To be honest, as a Christian, I think they are trying to find the answers everywhere except the place that hurts the most. In the process they create ideologies like Communism. After all they are still waiting for a messiah right! Maybe they should start realizing he is already here.

Sorry Ezra, but Jews are not perfect. So I would not feel bad about your encounter.
commented 2016-10-14 19:35:15 -0400
Every Jew should go and visit Israel and try to live there for sometime, as I did, and experience first hand dangerous political Islam cult and stone age brainwashed pathologically sick Arabs. What a shame on local naive and stupidly political correct Jews in Canada; when they are going to wake-up and realize what is waiting for them in the future? Did they learn anything from the thousand years of their history?

I absolutely agree with everything you have said in your speech and previous comments on REBEL. I admire you for your courage and professionalism. My hat goes to YOU!!!
commented 2016-10-14 19:11:24 -0400
No, you are not racist. I am Jewish and have lived in Israel and serviced in the Israeli Army (IDF). I find many western Jews have a ghetto mentality, that is we cannot say anything bad about anyone or they will not like us. Hell, they don’t like us now! Also, many western Jews think that because they were persecuted, they must help and protect all others who are persecuted, even at their own determent. It is happening even in the States. They are so blind that they cannot see that Islam, which states in their unholy Koran, that Jews must be killed, is against Jews and wants them destroyed as well as Israel. I fear for my daughter who will grow up in the US that our country in its present form may not exist in 10 years. I am more fearful if Hillary is elected as she has already sold out to thew Muslim interests and would sell out this country for a few million dollars. I believe that a new revolution is needed top bring back our true values and our freedom which the liberals have been chipping at for the last 50 years. I applaud your speech and stance and am behind you 100% of the way. I am currently unemployed and have stopped making contributions to all the organizations canvassing me, but I am going to make an exception here and stand beside you in your fight.

Wait until the Muslim Brotherhood gain the upper hand as they have done in parts of Paris,Brussels,London[UK],Malmo,and then see how happy people will be with NOGO areas in their own free Canada.

Well done Ezra ,well done. Your words are indeed for all of us.
Not to be ignored, misunderstood, misconstrued or misrepresented (as in Anonymous’s comment) What you said Ezra, is an important wake up call for everyone in this country. Canadians are too naive.
commented 2016-10-14 10:12:36 -0400
I’m with you 100% Ezra!
The way this county’s going, in less than 25 yrs.,

And that’s a shame!

Ringing alarm bells, for real and present danger, is never racist.

Unjustly slandering someone with the epithet of racist, for ringing these alarm bells, is the province of the dullard, the useful idiot, the Machiavellian villain, and the genocidal zealot.

I greatly appreciate your work in ringing these bells, Ezra. And I hope that the general populace will wake up from its complacency addled stupor, to properly address this real and present danger.

Keep up your great work.

As an evangelical Christian I see the same thing happening in our ever increasingly liberal churches. They’re all about doing the “Lord’s work” by welcoming the poor refugees but as with the pope and the Catholic Church, where’s the outrage for the persecution of Christians and Jews throughout the Islamic world? Why are they not the first priority? The naivety of Arab culture is astounding. To me it seems like people who are blind to what is happening are in a growing majority so why is it that some of us like the 99 plus % of rebel followers for instance, have no trouble seeing through the bs?
commented 2016-10-14 01:39:14 -0400
I hope these progressive Jews turn to the left to protect them when the time comes. Should be quite hilarious.
commented 2016-10-14 01:38:34 -0400
DH Chaisson , anti semitism is based in reality, islamophobia is a BS term used by left wing fools like you who cannot argue against the truth.
commented 2016-10-14 01:17:27 -0400
Right after 9/11 I began reading many Mid East experts, Daniel Pipes for one. Which meant I began reading about Islam. To my shock I learned of its horrific dark side: inherent imperialism and supremacism underlined by violent, psychopathic Jihad. I learned how much seething hatred towards Jews percolated through the Islamic world, and that all non-Islamic civilizations were perceived as enemies, past, present and apparently future.

When visiting my brother in Toronto I said exactly as did Ezra at the synagogue: maybe we shouldn’t be taking in Muslim immigrants without serious regard as to their ideologies and willingness to assimilate into a democracy (which dares to make and abide laws of the people rather than Allah’s Sharia). No one reading this will be surprised to know that my highly intelligent, but at that moment dismayed, brother exclaimed me to be a racist.
commented 2016-10-14 01:09:52 -0400
We had a name for people unwilling to stand up and fight for what was right back when I was a kid- it was called “chicken shit”. Another oldie which fits this situation is “Stupid is as Stupid does”. I have absolutely nothing against Jews but they definitely haven’t helped themselves in the past and obviously are not helping themselves now. How many times to you have to get kicked in the head before you realize your in a fight? How can a Jew possibly defend a culture who follows a book that has a verse saying “The stones and trees will say O muslims, O abdullah, there is a Jew behind me- come kill him”. ?
commented 2016-10-14 00:00:36 -0400
Ezra, I totally agree with you and the sad thing is that there isn’t much we can do about it. I had immigrant parents in the 1940s from Ukraine. My dad had no formal education but he taught himself to speak perfect English and write it too. My parents raised 8 of us. My dad came with nothing as his whole family. That was Canada. Now we are just giving our country awa. Your speech was excellent and I hope you made an huge impact on their thinking. Amen!
commented 2016-10-13 23:24:36 -0400
I think you hit the nail on the head Ezra when you said ‘trend’.
Some people like doing good deeds when they know they will get brownie points for doing so; socially praised, accepted.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, but I read a better interpretation: “Hell is full of good meanings, but Heaven is full of good works”.

Martin Luther King Jr. said “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

He also said: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
That’s you Ezra.
commented 2016-10-13 22:07:31 -0400
It has been said that evil prevails when good people sit back and do nothing.
Thank you for telling the truth.
My parents lived through the Russian revolution and were very thankful to be able to come to Canada in 1926. They had to agree with the Canadian certificate which allowed them to enter Canada which read
“It is also hereby certified that neither this man nor his family will become charges if allowed to land in Canada by the Canadian Immigration Authorities.”
It was a new culture and language for my parent families but they said "we are now in Canada , we will be Canadians and speak English and work. My dad determined to speak English with out an accent.
Canadians are losing their freedoms quickly and will experience severe consequences for it unless we prevail and fight for the values which made Canada the nation it was 60 years ago.
commented 2016-10-13 22:03:50 -0400
Right on Ezra, keep up the good work and don’t forget there were plenty of Judenrats in Europe to do the Nazis dirty work, who never woke up until the box car doors closed behind them.
commented 2016-10-13 21:19:16 -0400
Ezra, your problem is that you’re rational in an increasingly irrational era. You expect people to be able to think, and arrive at the truth at some point. Good luck with that in an age when — lemming-like — most people imbibe that which tickles their ears instead of that which engages their minds.

And this malady is definitely not confined to the Jews only. It is increasingly true of everyone today, perhaps especially the “educated” elites.
commented 2016-10-13 20:30:48 -0400
Ezra , all I can say is what Pamela Geller said " Truth is the new hate speech" Why am I not surprised that liberal jews do not want to see or hear the truth, they are so comfortable in their unstable little bubbles.
commented 2016-10-13 20:25:40 -0400
Congratulations on not mincing words, Ezra! The “Boomer” hopefully made atonement for his hypocritical self righteous response to your talk.
Reminds me of Justin and his hypocritical comment about Harper, preferring to prioritize Christian refugees over political and economic ones, as disgusting!
It is “disgusting” to me that Justin is willfully not aware of the crucifixion, rape and beheading of Christians
in the intolerant primitive countries that are responsible for the mass migration of these people. May G-d have mercy on you Ezra and continue to give you wisdom and protection is my prayer for you.

Congratulations Ezra. I have long been an admirer of your truth and logic since your first opinion columns more than two decades ago in The Edmonton Sun op-ed. I haven’t agreed with you at all times, but your presentation to the Toronto synagogue for Yom Kippur gathering and your follow-up The Rebel video is, frankly, beautiful journalism. The Jewish continued propensity with Liberalism is puzzling because today’s Liberal Progressives are not at all like Liberals were in our fathers’ time. And with Justin Trudeau, it has become far worse. Many of us in Alberta are Islamophobic because the Moslem ideology, history, and present behavior, scare the hell out of us. Toronto and Quebec seem lost to the Moslem Jihadi, so please consider leading Alberta in a Separatists’ movement — not kidding !!
