CANADA: Antisemite pulls knife on Jewish man and 11 year old son

How many more stories do we have to hear like this?  Again, this is why we must unify, learn how to fight, and how to handle weapons. Once the flames of antisemitism grow like this, it's not easy to contain. Mort Klein and Abe Foxman and their six figure salaries aren't going to save us.  Neither will Jesus.  We're Jews.  We don't believe in that, and for good reason.

All we can do is encourage the basics of self-defense and continue to try to push Jewish values, morals, and mitzvot, which are our strongest defense.  Between stories of a Muslim biting a Rabbi's finger off at Chanukah menorah lighting, a Moldovan priest attacking a menorah and erecting a cross, a Nazis disrupting Hanukkah ceremony with Nazi flags and now this, in Canada, we must be vigilant.

And why is all of this spreading?  Partly because companies like Facebook and YouTube are not being vigilant enough to enforce their own TOS against antisemitic and jihadist material. Throughout history, it always started with the propaganda.  That's why the JIDF has always tried to pull the weeds of antisemitism up from the roots.

 (National Post) A Vaughan man who unleashed a tirade of anti-Semitic slurs and death threats against a Jewish man and his 11-year-old son while they stood in the driveway of their home has been sentenced to six months in custody.

York Regional Police say Matthew Veersasammy, 28, was walking two dogs in the Bathurst St. and Clark Ave. neighbourhood on Sept. 11 when, unprovoked, he began swearing, yelling and directing anti-Semitic invectives against the 43-year-old father and his son, who have not been identified. Veersasammy produced a knife and threatened to kill the father.

“These types of crimes not only hurt the community that has been targeted, they hurt us all,” said Chief Armand La Barge.

Len Rudner, the Canadian Jewish Congress’s regional director for Ontario, said in an interview yesterday. “Hate crimes are ... an assault not only on the individual and the group from which the victim comes, but on broader society and the values we hold.Read full story>>>
