Jewish Defense League stages demonstration at Arab Federation Building. Defiant chants of "Condemn Muslim Terrorism Now" and "Jewish Blood Is Not Cheap" could be heard in the streets of downtown Toronto, on Thursday afternoon, July 31st, as 30 members of Toronto's Jewish Defense League staged an angry demonstration in front of the offices of the Canadian Arab Federation. Responding to the dramatic rise in anti-Semitic attacks on Jews by Muslims in the Toronto area, Meir Weinstein, director of the JDL in Toronto, said, "The abject silence on the part of the Canadian Arab Federation in the face of vitriolic attacks on Jews by Muslim perpetrators is tantamount to tacit approval of anti-Semitism and gives a green light to others who would entertain the notion of attacking Jews."
Weinstein was specifically referring to an attack that occurred on November 3, 2006, when a Jewish teenager and her three friends were viciously assaulted at a Toronto train station by Mustafa Taj, 21, who was recently sentenced to one year in prison by provincial court Judge Bill Cummings, who ruled that the attack was racially motivated.
According to a report in the Canadian newspaper, The Calgary Sun, dated July 24, 2008, on November 2, 2006, "Taj approached the group (of teenagers) around 10:45 pm, and asked 'who's Jewish.' Nichola Cordato, then 16, stated 'me' and Taj grabbed her and said, 'I'm Muslim and hate Jews.'" The report continues: "He then slapped her in the face and pullled her hair before her friends, Jessica Motta, Kayla Hungle and Daniel Ball attempted to intervene. Hungle attempted to prevent Taj from further attacking Cordato and was punched in the face by him. Motta then intervened and was punched in the face, pulled to the ground by her hair and kicked in the stomach and ribs.

I can’t fathom why there’s even any semblance of moral equivalence given between these two groups:
Group 1: We want to kill ALL of group 2.
Group 2: We don’t want to be killed by group 2.
(Group 2 is then EEEEVIL.)
Since when is being Jewish a race? The attack was religiously motivated...
“dramatic rise in hate-crimes against Jews.”
So one incident where a punk beats up four kids and calls them bad names (I’m not going to count trashing a camp as a hate crime, sorry liberals) is a dramatic rise...or maybe whining.

That is a muddy question isn’t it? What do you call the group of people that claims they descend from Abraham through Isaac? A tribe?
Islamothug: “DEATH to the Zionist swine! We weel KEEEL you!!!”
Jew minding his own business: “You want to kill us, why?”
ISlamothug: “Because you always answer a question with a QUESTION!!!”
Jew: “Do we really do that?”
Islamothug: “AALLLLLAAAHH FUUUUBAR!!!!!!” (slashes own hands with reckless sword play)
Jew: “Can I call you an ambulance?”
Jew: “OK, you’re an ambulance!”

So you are saying you wouldn’t complain if some punk beat up you and your family? If it happens don’t expect sympathy from us, as you would just be “whining”.
Muslims love to implement Sharia Law,
because it gives them license to kill and rape any non-Muslim
and the non-Muslim can’t testify against the Muslim.
The depth of hatred these people have for Jews is really sick. Apparently their founder really hated Jews, and built a deep hatred for Jews into his world-domination movement that he cleverly disguised as a religion.
Why bother capitalizing that evil word..
until you can come up with a html tag that shows voice inflection, I guess caps will have to do.
Think of Rush’s mocking use of “eeeeevil” when referring to how leftists talk about conservatives.

Jews, unless converted to Judaism, are of the Semitic race, as are Arabs.
Few conflicts are as vicious and devastating as those between relatives. The American Civil War, "brother against brother," saw more Americans die than all other wars we fought in combined.
No, I said no such thing. If I were victim to attack I wouldn’t conclude it is automatically part of a ‘drastic rise in hate crimes.’
And I would’nt want some race-hustler trying to exploit the attack for their own reasons.
As for the sympathy from you...wgaf?
That’s what I mean by being a muddy question. Jewishness is more than a religion but less than a race. While I could join them in professing their religious tenets, I can never join the tribe.
There may be more baggage packed into the word Jew than any other word in any language.
