What the mainstream media isn’t telling you about Quebec’s proposed anti-niqab law

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

It’s unanimous: Quebec’s new anti-burqa law, called Bill 21, is racist! Not just racist — it’s “ethnic cleansing.”

Here’s a Montreal-area mayor named Bill Steinberg, at a press conference with other political leaders. Steinberg said:

"This is ethnic cleansing, not with a gun but with a law. It is racist.”

If you look at that little press conference, something immediately stands out. Bill Steinberg, the mayor of Hampstead. Mitchell Brownstein, the mayor of a small municipality called Cote St. Luc. Liberal MP Anthony Housefather. A staffer from a provincial MNA named David Birnbaum.

They’re all left-wing Jews, from Montreal's Anglophone enclave, living in their little ethnic bubble.

In the rest of Montreal, outside the gated communities in Hampstead and Cote St Luc, Islam is now the second-largest religion, at over 10 per cent of the population. Arabic is the third-most spoken language in Montreal.

This Jewish Anglo enclave says they’re going to stand up for the rights of women to wear burqas and niqabs in the public service, and hold a "freedom rally" to protest Bill 21.

Yeah, except there are no women wearing niqabs in Cote St Luc civil service anyhow. I checked Statistics Canada. After English and French, do you know what the next most common languages are in that little Jewish town? Russian, Hebrew and Yiddish. How is that even possible in 2019 in Montreal?

Now, if I ever lived in Montreal, I’d want to live in Hampstead or Cote St Luc (if I could afford it.) My kind of people: Speak English, go to synagogue, Jewish schools, probably some great Montreal bagels and smoked meat.

But that’s not Quebec, folks. And when they’re rushing to defend burqas and niqabs in the public service, they're just virtue signalling. They want other Quebeckers to have burqas and niqabs in their neighbourhoods.

And as for those other Quebeckers? Well, Bill 21, the burqa ban, is the most popular law to be introduced in Quebec in a generation.

How can Anglo Jews — who teach their children Hebrew or Yiddish; who send their kids to Jewish schools and Jewish synagogues and Jewish summer camps — how can they condemn Quebecois for wanting to do the same — to preserve their ways?

It’s gross to me. I’m Jewish and I want to preserve Judaism. Why can’t Quebecois preserve certain aspects of their society? Including having a separation of mosque and state? How’s that ethnic cleansing?

It’s got to do with Muslim extremism. Which the old fossils in Cote St. Luc live far away from. I hope the gates in their gated community are really tall...

TONIGHT, I'm going I’m going to read the Bill 21 to you. (I don’t know if these virtue-signallers in Anglo Jewish Montreal have read the whole thing.)

And not only will I think you will support the bill for Quebec, you might actually want it for your own province, too...

NEXT: It's a shameful statistic. According to Stewart Bell at Global News, "Canadians [are] responsible for hundreds of terrorism deaths and injuries overseas."

Joining me tonight to make sense of this shocking report is security expert Lee Humphrey.

Yiddish is commonly spoken in my neighborhood of Montreal.
After the holocaust and the second world war there was 3 places in the world where Yiddish was still spoken: Montreal, New York City and Israel.

Ezra, Hampstead and Cote St Luc are not gated communities. Hardly so. There are no gated communities in Montreal.

Jews began congregating there when they were mostly nothing and built up communities because, well, French Quebec didn’t want them. “No Jews or dogs” were common signs at one time. Most Jews in Montreal live in the western municipalities such as Dollard des Ormeaux, Montreal West, CSL, Hampstead, Notre-Dame-de Grace, Westmount, Outremont, Snowdon, Cote des Neiges, Town of Mount Royal (where Papa Trudeau raised Baby Trudeau), Dorval and Ville St. Laurent. To the north, in the city of Laval was Chomedey. These were English speaking for the most part.

The Jewish community built both the Jewish General Hospital and the Jewish Convalescent Hospital because Catholic French Hospitals refused to allow Jewish doctors to practice within their walls or treat English patients in English. What can I say other than its racist Quebec. Protestants, on the other hand, were more welcoming and hence Jews lived in English Protestant western Montreal. The English Irish Catholics also lived in the western part of the city because they too were more welcome.

In Quebec it is not uncommon to see French Quebec joining with Muslim protesters in front of a Jewish owned business or businesses that sell Israeli products. Barely an eyebrow is raised in the French media.

The mayors of CSL and Hampstead, along with Housefather, are dyed in the wool Liberals, and are just parroting the federal Liberal dogma. Their being Jews has nothing to do with their politics. Then there are the citizens themselves, of which many feel that voting against the Liberals would mean disaster for the community in ethnic-centric French Catholic Quebec. Obviously, they have forgotten when Pierre T. was PM, and the people of his TMR riding asked for his help regarding the anti-English laws to which his response was that it was their problem to solve, not his. That is always the Liberal response.

As for no burqas and niqabs (or hijabs), that is something you could have said 25 years ago in CSL and Hampstead. For the past 20 years they have become more and more present. What I have observed, apartment buildings where they start popping up have quickly started downgrading with children running wild in the halls, shouting and screaming arguments, junk tossed from balconies, filth, et cetera. Just my observation.

The one thing that the new law does touch on that may affect Jews is that working for the government – including hospitals such as the Jewish General Hospital – and if you are religious, you can not wear a kippa (skull cap) or a Mogan David (Star of David). For religious Jews the kippa is for showing respect to God.

I have a bit of an issue when someone refers to “Anglo”. In 1976 the PQ decided to divide the English speaking community into “Anglophone” for those already living in Quebec and “Allophone” for immigrants (even if the spoke or learned to speak English". By doing so, cities and municipalities that were predominately English could now be classified as not English and therefore had to administer in French. Over night Quebec was no longer 24% English and the greater Montreal area and the Eastern Townships ceased for the most part to be considered English (“Anglo”) speaking communities.

Ezra, wear a kippa, a Canadian flag lapel pin, and ask for an English magazine east of St. Laurent Boulevard and watch the disrespect you will be greeted with. “Eh, François, un maudit Juif veut quelque choise ‘Anglais’!” Then try the same thing in the West Island.

One last thing, Mayor Steinberg speaks for himself, not the community. If he said something as stupid as it is “ethnic cleansing” its his free speech. All he did was make himself look uninformed.

Hi Ezra,
Sorry to disagree, but under the new law, would someone wearing a yarmulke, or a crucifix be able to work at a public school, or government office, or government supported business like a hospital, or daycare? It could be argued (and surely will be argued) that they would not. That is why the law is dangerous. Total face coverings are another issue, but should probably be dealt with under existing laws that forbid wearing disguises.

I believe in freedom of religion and expression, in line with our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Thus, referencing our Charter, the issue I have with Islam is that there are two fundamentally different parts to the Quran (forgetting about the Hadith and Sira). There is the non-violent self directed Meccan part of the Quran and then there is the second part, the Medinan part, which provides the basis and justification for jihad or political Islam which strives to achieve .Dar al-Islam everywhere, that is the absolute rule of Islam everywhere.

The confusion abounding in western society regarding Islam, is the pre-occupation with the jihadist doctrines and program, being based on some mis-interpretation of the Quran. That is a false narrative.

Regarding the fundamental jihadist doctrines of Islam, there is no broad mis-interpretation…..there are simply those within Islam who place an emphasis on the inward looking moderate Medinan text and those who place emphasis on the political Meccan text. It follows that more moderate Muslims capitulate to the more outwardly directed Muslims who emphasize Dar al-Islam.

This above is not a criticism of Islam but a general factual outline of the two distinct parts to the Quran. Moreover, at the end of the day, one has to ask the question…..does the political Meccan text align with our Charter, if it directs individuals to achieve absolute Islamic rule, Dar al-Islam at the expense of all other religions or systems of belief. Framed differently, is it democratic and does it allow for the freedoms guaranteed in our Charter?

Ezra you are right on the money! I live in Cote St Luc and a bigger bunch of leftist hypocrites you won’t find anywhere (except in Southeast Florida!). The complainers you mentioned don’t even wear a kippah except once a year in temple! lol. My friends in the Orthodox Jewish community aren’t concerned about the bill.

American David Horowitz believes there is a war on to destroy Christian America……….

You are right Ron, there is a war on against Christianity and it ‘is’ going on all over the western world. The Muslims call it Jihad or Holy War. This Jihad is the only reason that the Muslims are here and in fact, Jihad has already started. They need just a few more Jihhad’i on ground before the killing will start.

Dirk Kanis……. In my comment re the hijab “I don’t have a problem with it” I should have explained myself better. I was referring to a work setting only in that I don’t need to see her hair, I need to see her face, but that does not mean I am okay with it overall, I am not. I definitely agree with you that it is a form of female oppression being used under the guise of religion.

Jan you are right. Nowhere in the Quran dose it state that a woman ‘has’ to wear head covering of any kind. As usual we are being subject to Islamic BS.

The burka & niqab have no place in Canada, period. The hijab does not cover the face, only the hair & I have no problem with it.
I do have a problem with it since it is a symbol of severe female oppression and when they do it in high enough numbers they will push the next step, that’s how they roll make no mistake about it.Step by step little by little.

Billy Howard wrote: “Scheer should respond: several Muslim countries also ban the burqa, and that CPC hasn’t promised a national proposal on a ban, but won’t rule it out if that’s what the vast majority of Cdns want.”
I wrote Scheer seven times over the last few years and specifically asked him to ban Islam and all its tenets from Canada. No response. Scheer was busy yesterday wooing and pandering to the Muslims Billy, and staking his territory. He doesn’t care what Canadians want. He cares about being the next PM to further the UN agenda.

American David Horowitz believes there is a war on to destroy Christian America, in fact, that is the name of his new book, ‘Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America’. The same goes here in Canada. He gives a really good history lesson in this vid:

As for the scums who left Canada to fight with ISIS & want to come back, well too damn bad, they can rot there for all I care & if married, their wives are not welcome here either as they are just as guilty as the murderers they married. Would you stay with a murderer? I wouldn’t.

10% is the absolute tipping point …after that percentage is achieved by Islam expect nothing but an ongoing never ending assault for Islamification and a nightmare for the host society …..look at examples anywhere in the world where this has happened ….it’s clockwork

Paul McCullough commented 2 hours ago, “Quebec’s Burka ban needs to go nation wide.”
Totally agree Paul, Polls will average out around 65% in favor of the ban. Last I heard, (3 years ago) even the Atlantic Provinces don’t want Saudi culture in Canada.

I commented the other day that Christians and Jews are being persecuted as Quebec’s way of getting around the Islamic issue.
Quebec has been historically influenced by France’s secularism and has been trying to eradicate religion for years.
Despite all that, burkas are not religious so why are they even part of this discussion?
Quebec, in including them in this bill, has now declared them a ‘religious’ item.
So Quebec has knocked off 3 religions in one bill off their checklist.

Ezra, when you get kicked off Facebook how will I be able to watch you. I pay a yearly prescription and when justin decides it your time. He has kick Faith off and is calling Andre Scheer a racist. The boy is out of control and we as Canadians are the enemy of the state.
commented 2019-04-09 21:26:47 -0400
Maybe these little towns need a huge dose of diversity, I say dump about five thousand burka wearing women there and let them see if if still feels like their town. Add a couple thousand diverse men so they can really get a feel for the diversity is our strength thing.

Why does that Anthony Housefather keep showing up? Liberals only use the Jewish people for photo ops. They must have promised them something.

With the Bill 21 story, it may not be wise to support anything like that bill out of concern for other groups of people who in the end, may wind up calling you out as racist or whatever. You can support something like that if you think it will effect you or your group, but as far as thinking you’re helping or protecting other people, you have to let them decide whether they want your help or protection. (Maybe they don’t.) You also have to let them decide how they want to oppose something like that. Look after yourself and then help others if you can. If you get called out over doing what you think is right for yourself, well, tough!

The only ethnic cleansing that we will see in Canada is the ethnic cleansing of white Canadians.
By the time that Trudeau has finished his third term in office it should be just about over. This will come about because the Quran says it is what Allah wants. Islam will rule the world and the world will return to the Dark Ages. The White Man and Dogs will become extinct.

The mainstream media aka Canadian Liberal propaganda, doesn’t mention a lot of things for example, the story behind the Quebec mosque shootings:

As for an outward expression of faith, I think removing a necklace of a cross or removing the yarmulke may bother some people as they are cultural traditions. It is unfortunate that has to be at the expense of also banning hijabs and/or burqas. But it should not affect a person’s faith.

1 Samuel 16:7 … for the LORD sees not as man sees; for man perceives the outward appearance, but the LORD perceives the heart.

Both stories tonight show just how evil Islam is when it’s followed by the book. Those Anglo-Jews in their rich ghetto will be in for a rude shock when Islam takes over. “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people,” I’ve heard it said by Islamists.

- It’s funny how many of the most virtue signaling leftists are also those who have most isolated themselves from the negative consequences of the things they whine about. Quebec’s burka ban needs to go nation wide.

- These ISIS fools went to fight for what they claimed to believe in. They lost & are now claiming that they’re actually citizens of the countries they turned their backs on. They are violent, cowardly, opportunists. The kind of people that Liberals love. They need to stay where they are. I’m not counting on that happening in the case of those who want back into Canada though.

Scheer should respond: several Muslim countries also ban the burqa, and that CPC hasn’t promised a national proposal on a ban, but won’t rule it out if that’s what the vast majority of Cdns want. There’s 2 intransigent Muslim voters: the Sharia types (Liberal) and the freedom/equality/western type (CPC). Never the twain shall meet, so just dig in your heels and move on.
Also the white virtue signalling SJWs are stubbornly Lib/NDP too, so Scheer would be wasting his time trying to woo them.

Time to stake your territory Andrew while Trudeau commits suicide-by-scandal.
