A pack of teenagers attack Jewish kids on the streets of Toronto. Who did it, and why?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

You’d think that a group of religious Jews being attacked by a pack of teenagers while they were walking down a street in Toronto, would be big news.

The incident happened not far from The Rebel Media world headquarters here, in a very Jewish area; Jewish bakeries, synagogues, Jewish homes. Literally two bagel shops next to each other. It’s a couple of blocks away from the Barbara Frum Library.

What gang would even be there, in the heart of Jewtopia?

Now the first thing I noticed when I read the Toronto Police Services press release was, they didn’t describe the suspects, even though they have one suspect in custody; and they said that there were four victims, who surely and obviously saw them.

And even if they couldn’t describe them precisely, they could surely know a few things — were they male or female? Were they also Jewish? Were they Muslim? White supremacists or something — that’s what the media tells us to be on the lookout for.

So who perpetrated this attack in Toronto? Two sources in the community tell me that, strangely, surprisingly, it was young Filipino men — teenagers.

I was quite surprised, because in Toronto, I can tell you from my own observations, the Jewish and Filipino communities are close and friendly — there’s not a Jewish institution in the area, whether it’s a synagogue or a daycare or a restaurant, that doesn’t have Filipino staff in intimate roles.

I’ve never heard of anything like this; and for it to have that Nazi edge to it is bizarre.

If the two reports I received are borne out, it will come as a shocking surprise not only to the Jews of the city, but to the Filipino community itself, too, which will be appalled and embarrassed by this. And it wouldn’t surprise me if these attackers were subjected to a lot of correction from their own community.

I’m optimistic in that regard — I think that the Filipino leadership, especially in the churches, will probably be harder on these attackers than either the Jews, or the civic authorities or police.

And at the moment I write this, I can see that the media is already losing interest in the story; and as I write this, Justin Trudeau has not yet written a tweet about it; so every moment that passes confirms for me that my two sources are correct; for if it had been a white supremacist group or right wingers who attacked these Jews, Trudeau would weaponize this moment into a political denunciation of his enemies. 

The left doesn’t really don’t care about racism. They only care about racism from certain people against certain people, as I'll remind you tonight...

They certainly don't care about anti-Semitism any more, except as a political weapon against conservatives.

This trend began in 1967. That was the year of the Six Day War, when the tiny state of Israel smashed the combined armies of several Arab states that had vowed to wipe it off the map. Israel decided to live instead; decided that the Jewish people had been victims for long enough. And so they won — and so they were no longer the underdog.

So the left didn’t like them anymore.

The Toronto attack is awful no matter who did it; but I sort of hope it was a rogue anomaly of a pack of teenagers who just need a good, harsh disciplining by their own families and communities.

Because if it was a Muslim gang — European style — not only would it likely not be condemned by mainstream leadership in their community, but it would be winked at by Justin Trudeau, too — who would probably even offer compensation to the gang, and say they have an “important voice”.

NEXT: As you may recall, earlier this year I travelled to Israel as part of The Rebel Media's latest mission to Israel.

Tonight my guest is Yishai Fleisher of, one of the people we met on our trip, who talks about the Jewish community of Hebron and why it is so special.

Excellent show Ezra. All of it. I was however particularly interested in your discussion about the duplicity of Macron and PM Peoplekind over the matter of ‘nationalism’.

It has often been said of Barack Obama, that he was consumed over what his ‘legacy’ would be during his, unfortunate, two terms as President. Well, he was such a despised President among law abiding and loyal Americans, that his real legacy is the Presidency of Donald Trump.

So it is with Macron and PM Peoplekind. The more they shove their globalist, open border policies down the throats of their unwilling citizenry and speak out against ‘nationalism’ they more they will ironically flame the fires of nationalism and motivate those who advocate for it.

The above link is from the ‘Canadian Jewish News’ regarding the assault on the four Jewish teens. My first reaction about this article was about the dirth of information about the perps. The following was what I had written in the comments section.

“Why the political correctness/cowardice/gross ineptitude in avoiding detailing a description of the culprits involved? As four young Jewish men were ridiculed for wearing their kippah and then assaulted, I am sure they knew quite well who assaulted them and why; but in this article, CRICKETS. Shame. It is cowardice like this which will ensure the barbaric assaults continue.”

Could someone explain why so many Jews either stand with anti-Semites or are anti-Jewish/Anti-Israel themselves? It’s staggering that 3/4 of American Jews support today’s Democrats. Canadian Jews are probably has similar.


It’s called self loathing. Karl Marx (a German Jew) said “behind every great fortune there is a great crime”….

One of my oldest friends , on the one hand networks with fellow Jews who he has known since childhood, and he is very proud of his Jewish heritage…but on the other hand tends to despise his fellow Jews generally. His family fortune comes from Joseph Simon the slave trader and owner of the infamous African transport ships.(Which has nothing to do with him of course and he doesn’t know that I know about it).

He spends his winters in Cuba and is a big fan of Castro and all things communist…but when you talk politics with him he sounds a lot more like a Tory than a Marxist.

It’s a doublethink that puzzles me.

If this doesn’t convince you of what Justin Trudeau is made of, you must be truly challenged. His silence is telling us loud and clear and it is chilling.

There is a subset of the Filipino community who may have a different perspective on the Jews…..the island of Mindanao and the indigenous Moro. Got any of them living in Toronto?

Trudeau’s anti-antisemitism is glaring.
commented 2018-11-14 08:58:45 -0500 Trudeau silent about attack on Jewish teens

So what has Trudeau said or tweeted about this alleged hate crime?


But the prime minister, who has been quick to comment on racial attacks in the past, has since Sunday been tweeting about other things, including his current meetings with leaders in Singapore and having some fun commenting on some new Canadian children, originally from Eritrea, delightfully getting their first taste of snow to which Trudeau joked in a tweet: “Now convince them that shovelling is fun and you’re all set.”

Really enjoyed the conversation with Yishai Fleisher. Thanks for having him on.

With regard to the attack on jewish teens, I must say I am very skeptical that the attackers were filipino. My little community has a rather large filipino demographic; about twenty five percent, in fact. They are largely catholic and very community oriented. I have found them to be unfailingly polite and friendly. As has been noted, in the video and in the comments, I expect that if the ‘young teen’ attackers are in fact filipino youths, their own community will be far harsher with them than our legal system ever would.

Multi cultural is fine as long as the people involved are not leftist that indulge in identity politics.

Karan Singh’s description of the Multicultural Hole that Vancouver and the Lower Mainland can be is completely accurate. I lived there 30 years and witnessed it going down hill.
What makes Multiculturalism so incendiary is you can have a quiet, peaceful race like in most cases the Chinese, and a few get beaten up like the Jews did in this story, and a small war breaks out.

I really worry about Trudeau’s new plan to bring in Somalis migrants as they are out of control to start with.

Here is a banned 7 min. video on American Blacks; although Somalis are a little different culture, this is what Trudeau is bringing to Canada.

In regard to the identities of that anti-Semitic mob attack in Toronto…any idea what the population of the Southern Philippines, Moro is?

Very enlightening information from Yishai Fleisher. He really nailed down the issues confronting Israel and the Jews in general. Winning attitude means everything and he has it in loads. Great guest.

Outstanding show tonight, Ezra! Really informative per usual. Especially liked the interview with the gentleman from Hebron, Israel. He has got it!! Please people, WAKE UP! What the Rep. for Hebron explains how the LEFTIST/ISLAMISTS are all pushing a NARRATIVE.
LISTEN UP liberal Jews in N. America! Don’t buy into their PROPAGANDA!

Multiculturalism has started to show its effect on Canadian society. It’s not an isolated case of one culture attacking other neither it’ll be the last.
I distinctly remember during late 90’s a strong group of filipino students picking fights with east indian & vietnamese students for dominance & drug distribution among high school students in Mt. Pleasant area in Vancouver. All across Lower Mainland schools & universities/colleges you can’t help but notice the failure of multiculturalism where students form groups & fraternizing within their own culture/ethnicity.
Vast majority of businesses owned by non-western european whites will employ from within their own community & strongly prefer doing business with their own kind of people. (These include Italians, Greeks & Easter Europeans as well).
The obvious debacle of multiculturalism is evident in every city across Canada where immigrant (from third world countries) population are in majority. Every new culture in Canada are at odds not only with white-Canadian society but with each other too.
In all the recorded history of mankind multiculturalism has never been successful, it has always lead to: 1) Complete obliteration of host culture/society. 2) Only one culture (doubtlessly the most savage, barbarian, ruthless, cunning) among the invading hordes will dominate every other culture.

Speaking of stealing land from people, the Jew were in Jerusalem before the Arabs as far as I know, so they should give Jerusalem and any other land the Jews had, back to the Jews. If they’re not going to do that, the least they could do is to try to get along with the Jews because they are like cousins. This is why I decided to like the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. He wants to recognize the right of Israel to exist.

I seriously doubt Filipinos where involved. Anti-Semitism in the Philippines is far less than in Canada and amongst the lowest percentile in the world.
As someone familiar with Filipino culture, I pity these boys if the community finds out who they are (if the reports are true). Filipinos are extremely protective of their ability to integrate and are proud of their ability to see past any and all racial and religious biases. Considering the large Philippines diaspora in Canada, how often by comparison do you hear of Filipino gangs, terrorists, homeless, or other anti-social activities?

There will not be another Six Day War, Next time around it will be a Six Minute War and the threat of Islam will be gone…….Cities of Glass, nuke style. Halal-oo-yer.

- If it had been anyone they could link to the right or White supremacists they would be talking about this around the clock for months. The Democrats have never really changed. What has changed is their tactics & their talking points. Dinesh D’Souza did a great job of covering this in his latest book “Death of a Nation”. The Liberals seem to be following the same game plan in recent years.

- Seeing the Palestinians as victims of Israel takes an enormous amount of willful ignorance. The Palestinian people are the victims of the Palestinian authority who keeps them poor & miserable so they can be used as cannon fodder for their cause.

What a shock there is nothing but silence from trudeau.

He is too busy looking for islamaphobia behind every tree, bush and building.
