Have Jewish Groups Who Sponsor Syrian Migrants Gone Too Far?

What I find so painful, is when so many Jews (my friends and family included) are patting themselves on the back because they are championing the 'Syrian migrants' cause even to the point of many synagogues sponsoring Muslim families to move to my city of Toronto and elsewhere!

What they are really doing is guaranteeing that their grandchildren and mine will have to deal with muslims who hate us and will no doubt cause us trouble. Trouble ranging from yelling threats at us on the street to raping our grandchildren and even worse. Like in France, we'll have to hide our Jewishness. No more kippahs in public. It's just too dangerous.



One doesn't need to look beyond Europe to see the actual effects of letting in millions of unscreened 'Syrian migrants'. I enclose 'Syrian migrants' in quotes because more often than not, they are not at all Syrian. Most are not in any serious danger. As has been the case in the last 50 years or longer, they are moving to the West for economic reasons. Period. That's the same reason that most immigrants have been moving to the West forever. A chance at a better life. The difference between the majority of the muslim migrants and the rest of the immigrants is that the former, although may certainly be excited for a better life, are not seeking liberty or freedom from religious persecution. Every legitimate poll out there confirms my worst fears. The vast majority of muslims world wide prefer living under sharia law. This means that they are not only okay with taking our laws into their own hands but strive for this event. Not every muslim is a terrorist but most (don't take my word for it, look as the data) dream for a society where only they dominate.

So while our liberal/democratic/progressive Jewish friends are enjoying a feel good moment today by demonstrating against Trump's sane policy to protect us from potential terrorists and many who albeit are not necessarily terrorists themselves but are haters of all non-Muslims with Jews at the top of their hate list, it's our children and grandchildren who will pay the ultimate price for their moment of weakness.

I often hear their attempt to guilt us into helping the 'Syrian migrants'. This often comes at the cost of helping our own. Who hasn't heard their pleas that these poor souls are no different than our parents when they fled Europe. As a child whose parents survived the Holocaust, I find it most insulting to compare my folks with any of the Muslim migrants! Our Jewish survivors were not a security threat. Not a one of them. Nor were they a burden on society. Quite the opposite. They often founded businesses, large and small, worked hard and employed many local citizens. Furthermore all immigrants back then were screened, face to face with an immigration officer. They often required someone already in Canada or the US to sponsor them before they were even allowed to leave Europe. Today in Canada only 1 in 10 immigrants face an immigration officer!

Our email inboxes have been replete by pleas from my country's largest Jewish organization, (CIJA) Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, for donations to sponsor 'Syrian migrants' and to support anti-Islamophobic laws in Canada. I told them that they need to focus their energy on Jewish causes instead of trying to gain favour with a political ideology (Islam) wherein tens of millions of Muslims following that ideology want to kill us.

So if you haven't guessed by now, the answer to the title of my blog is: Hell Yes!

PS: This just in. A 'Syrian migrant' just got arrested in Edmonton for multiple sexual assaults. Click Here

Why Trump isn't Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem So Fast

If you are a zionist like me, you might be somewhat disappointed that Trump didn’t even mention his promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, the capital city of Israel, during his inauguration speech.

We were all waiting for him to announce it the following day, then the day after that. There were rumours all over the map about Trump’s advisers looking into possible locations within Jerusalem for the new embassy building. Other sources suggested that they may simply change the signage on the current US consulate office in Jerusalem to the embassy. But it’s now Wednesday and still no announcement. In fact I just read that some Palestinian Authority folks have claimed that Trump’s people have assured them that they don’t plan to move the embassy any time soon. Do I normally believe anything that comes out of the arabs mouths? Not usually. But in this instance- maybe I do.




I can imagine the discussion between Bibi and Trump prior to his inauguration speech going something like this:

Trump: So Bibi, I have a lot on my plate right now as you can imagine. What do you think about moving our embassy to Jerusalem?

Bibi: I totally understand the pressure you must be facing on this from the entire Muslim world and beyond. In fact if you did, we too might suffer at the hands of Palestinian terrorists along with Hamas, Hezbollah and others going crazy. We have other priorities such as Iran. Their nuclear threat is a far greater issue to us than moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Trump: Fair enough. If you don’t see it as a high priority mission right now than I can move it down the list. I’ll focus on the Iran deal instead.

Bibi: Thanks so much Mr. President. You’re the best!

In other words, if the embassy doesn’t get moved, it has nothing to do with Trump.

Sadly it’s the left leaning Jewish Israeli's  who are not in love with the idea of making Jerusalem their Jewish capital. Bibi is included in this cohort even if he is more centrist. Unfortunately most if not all of his predecessors felt the same way. My proof? The Temple Mount would never have been given control to Jordan's Muslim authority. 2 nasty Mosques dominate our most religious site. Jews are prohibited to pray at the Temple Mount, etc. I can go on and on.

I believe that Bibi has led Trump to believe that moving the US embassy to Jerusalem is just not that important to him and if Trump doesn’t move it, it'll be Israel's fault not Trump's!

Obama is Evil

To some of us, this is no surprise. Let me be the first to call him out. I've known that the president of the United States is evil for many years now and I suspect that a good many people think the same. Maybe one day we'll have the proof that it was he alone who gave the order for the American ambassador to the UN to abstain for the vote declaring Israel's 'settlements' illegal. Right now the State department denies promoting the anti-Israeli resolution. Until now, the States has always vetoed anti-Israeli resolutions from the UN Security Council. 

But Obama has put out the rumours for months if not years that he would eventually turn on Israel before he gives up his job to his arch enemy Trump. I really don't know why he won't admit it right now. Maybe he will in a week or so. That's how he operates. He's too much of a chicken shit to tell the world how he really feels about Jews and Israel. He hides his hate under the guise of political correctness. We could have easily seen where he was going when he said way back in 2009 that there needs to be daylight between the US and Israel in order for there to be peace. 

Despite him saying he had Israel's back, he's been constantly stabbing Israel in the back all the while insulting Jewish leaders in the States and elsewhere (Israel's PM). So finally near the end of his term (thank G-d) he's hit the jackpot. He agrees with (and pushed for) the insane resolution (one of hundreds) that accuses Israel of building illegal settlements in her own country, including in her own capital, Jerusalem. Furthermore he's promoting the lie that this is what is stopping any possible peace agreement between Israel and the arabs. Surely the lack of peace in the region has nothing to do with the Muslim doctrine to hate, subjugate and kill all non muslims with Jews at the top of their list!

The fact that it's the Muslims who are the terrorists seems to be somehow overlooked by Obama and his party. The fact that Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem are legally Israel's land which they have legal title to under the Mandate for Palestine seems to be irrelevant. 














This is not just some academic argument. This is a real life decision about whether to allow thousands of Muslim terrorists to rain down missiles, bombs and bullets on to innocent Israelis. All this from an indefensible border of less than 9 miles deep! Can you imagine a tiny country surrounded with millions of people who want to annihilate you and the world insists that you give them (your enemy) even more land that would turn your country into a tiny strip of densely populated land between the Mediterranean Sea and Judea and Samaria (West Bank). And why do these millions of muslims want to kill Israelis? Because they are Jews.

Donald Trump tried to stop the resolution which was originally submitted by Egypt who subsequently withheld the resolution. He almost succeeded but thanks to Obama they pushed the vote through the following day with other terror sponsoring or Islamist sympathizing states. 

Trump can't get in soon enough. Obama's game is to try to do as much damage as he can before he gets kicked out. Damage not only to his own country. From delegitimizing Trump's election to killing the national energy industry but also creating as many foreign policy disasters as possible. This libel thrown on Israel's back is just the latest. You can bet there will be more.

Is it bad? Yes but in a good way. The same way you usually feel worse after taking medicine for a sickness, things will get worse before they get better. But I do think they will get better once Trump is in. This just pushed the bubble up to the surface faster. Without Trump (good) and Obama (evil) we would be slowly sinking down. Without real nasty Islamic terror we wouldn't notice the slow deterioration of our countries in the West. Jihad by immigration is killing Europe but even they are blind unless they are exposed to nasty Islamism like the raping of their daughters or thousands of no go zones. And sadly many still don't get it because the terrorists didn't commit enough terror. The more shit Obama throws at us the more we are forced to evaluate reality and come to the only valid conclusion: He's no good. Islamism is no good. The UN which is run by Islamic, backward theocratic states is no good. The Democratic party which plans to elect as its leader Keith Ellison, an advocate for the Muslim Brotherhood and other terror sponsoring, Jew hating, American hating, Israel bashing groups (he is the first Muslim congressman) is no good.

I figure a few large Islamic terrorist events on the scale of 9/11 but hopefully in Germany where it's most likely and fitting to occur might finally open the eyes to the non believers. Those that still don't believe that Islam is the threat (it is not a religion like any other) and that Obama is no less evil.

Bibi: Please Change the Conversation!

PM Bibi Netanyahu needs to change the conversation. I’m sick and tired of listening to him defending Israeli built settlements in Judea and Samaria (aka West Bank). The latest argument between him and secretary Kerry about whether or not the ‘settlements’ are an obstacle to peace is itself an obstacle to peace.



Although there are people like me who understand the deep hatred that the PA leadership harbours toward Israel and the Jews, I can see that most of the world might side with Kerry.

Bibi recounted correctly that for 50 years the Palestinians (I hate that word since there is no such people but am quoting Bibi here) have fought for the destruction of Israel, well before the 1967 Six Day War where Israel recaptured the land known today by some as the West Bank. So his defence is that since they hated us well before there were any Jewish settlements why would Jewish settlements today be an obstacle to peace?

Kerry agreed with Bibi’s history lesson. But still cried that despite the history, if Israel really wanted to make peace, they should stop antagonizing the Palestinians by building Jewish settlements in land that will one day be part of a Palestinian state and further more make that land non-contiguous -making any future state difficult to demarcate. 

As you can see, Bibi’s defensive arguments will ultimately fail as do all arguments which avoid the real truth, the real issue or as aptly known as the elephant in the room.

So what is the real truth? Simple: Judea and Samaria (aka West Bank) belongs to Israel. Period. 
Through the Mandate for Palestine, Israel has legal title to this land. If you believe in the Bible, she’s had it for thousands of years. If you don’t, it started no later than 1917 with the Balfour declaration and was completed in 1948 when Israel became a modern day Jewish State. 
There are many fantastic organizations, some Jewish, some not, who defend Israel’s right to the disputed territories. Check this excellent one out: http://israelrights.com/en/

Don’t get me wrong. I have much respect and admiration of Bibi as Israel’s democratically elected PM. I’m sure there are many mitigating factors for him and some of his colleagues and predecessors going down the 2 state solution, road. But enough is enough. 

It’s way past time to change the conversation. Stop defending your settlements that are built on your own land. Stop appeasing the haters. Tell the world that the land is ours as per our legal title. If and when we decide to give it away for any reason, it’s up to us and only to us. 

As you might have figured out, I’m a Jewish activist. In Toronto, Canada we host a Gay Pride Parade every summer. Unfortunately, it was soon hijacked by an antisemitic group called Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (Quaia). There were quite a few citizens who didn’t like the group participating in the parade for various reasons. I didn’t like it because they were falsely condemning Israel of apartheid and doing so in someone else’s parade. The city created a tribunal to deal with complaints about the parade. I filled out the application and attended the tribunal to make my case against allowing Quaia to participate in the parade. The panel was composed of the former president of the Canadian Muslim Association, a lawyer who was part of Peace Now (an anti-Israel left wing ‘Jewish’ group) and someone else. I realized very quickly that this tribunal was a sham. They wanted me to defend Israel as not being an apartheid state. I refused to argue this point (I think I said that’s as silly as arguing that water is wet). My argument was simple. The large, expensive parade, in part paid for by my taxes, was to celebrate gay rights. It had nothing to do with Israel or any other country or political issue. I told them that thankfully we live in a democratic society. Quaia is free to organize their own parade on their own dime but should not be allowed to hijack our world famous Gay Pride Parade. 
It took a couple more years but we eventually won this battle. Quaia is no longer welcome to participate in our parade. I’m pretty sure that had I and others tried to defend our cause by attempting to prove that Israel is not an apartheid state, Quaia would still be participating in the parade.

When Bibi avoids the elephant, he makes it very difficult for people like me who try to defend Israel. He makes it easier for her enemies to attack Israel. Case in point is the PA’s latest efforts to insist that the UK apologize for the Balfour Declaration. 
I just wrote a letter to a British MP asking her to support the Balfour Declaration. But why should she listen to me when Israel’s own PM doesn’t seem to ever mention it?

I love Bibi, but if he won’t stand up for the Truth right now, it’s time for him to step down.

Left Leaning Jewish Liberals Need to Hear This



Jews are at a crossroads today. On the one hand, the data shows us that antisemitism is growing world wide. In just about every city in the West, antisemitic incidents are escalating. Here in Toronto, a typical incident consists of painting swastikas on Jewish establishments. But elsewhere such as in Paris, Orthodox Jews must hide their identity in public to avoid physical attacks––or worse. Although France had the highest percentage of Jews post WWII, today French Jews are fleeing in droves. Jewish students at universities are under attack and they are watched so closely that they keep their pro-Israel voices shut. Israel has been on the defensive for years. She faces existential threats from Iran and is barraged by Muslims either strapping on suicide belts or firing missiles at her from the Gaza strip or the Syrian border. For the past 8 years Obama and his administration has not been a friend to Israel or the Jews––despite his claims to the contrary. To say that most governments in the West have made us feel uncomfortable, would be an understatement. The relationship between Israel and the US government has hit an historical all-time low. Both the Clinton and Sander camps contain many high ranking antisemites. Physical assaults on Jews throughout Europe are at an all-time high. All religions except for Islam, have lost many members. Churches are empty and some synagogues are facing a difficult time retaining membership. As a result, many Jews have lost their Jewishness. This has been an ongoing issue for many years, but it seems to have reached a critical mass at this point. But people (and Jews are no exception) need a cause. They need to belong. So many American Jews (and others) have found it in the Democratic party in the States. Or in the Liberal party in Canada. Many are even on the left in Israel. They will even ignore the obvious Jew haters within their ranks. Sometimes, the leaders themselves are complicit in this hatred, which is often ignored for the common good of the group.

Now to the point: The people who really need to hear this message are the left-leaning, democratic, liberal, baby boomers, and some Jewish organizations (like the ADL) who despise Trump. People who need to heed this message are the protestors, who rail against Trump in almost every metropolitan city throughout the world. As I write this, hundreds are protesting him in Paris. As Paris is burning, thanks to radical Islamist terrorists and the terrible economic burden induced by massive waves of Muslim migrants, many are protesting a democratically elected Trump. I’m including most of the younger, often arrogant population as well. I’m even including a few misguided Jewish Holocaust survivors that fear Trump and the people who voted for him.


The Message: The same group of mostly middle class, primarily Christian Americans & Canadians (e.g. plumbers, mechanics, farmers, construction workers, factory workers, blue-collar service workers and salespeople), who voted for Trump or would have if they could, are the same people who liberated our Jewish parents and grandparents from the Holocaust! This same group of whites and blacks and a smattering of others are the ones who risked and often lost their lives in order for us to survive. They liberated thousands of Jews who looked more like skeletons than humans in Auschwitz and other camps. These are the same brave men and woman who we ridicule for having the audacity for voting for the misogynist, racist, nut job, hater named Donald Trump. I think we owe them! We owe them a chance to enjoy the results from a legitimate democratic election. Why not stop attacking Trump every second of every day and give him a chance to succeed? If he succeeds we all win. The vicious lies have saturated the planet. From the lame jokes (lies) on the infamous SNL TV show to small unknown haredi newspapers who sometimes vacillate on him or his supporters. Poor Steve Bannon will be known as an antisemite in 20 years from now. His case resembles the ‘Jenin massacre'. Israel will forever be identified as the brutal murderers responsible for levelling an entire Arab city thanks to the constant repetition of this lie.

In addition to this cohort, there is a brave group of Righteous Gentiles who defend Jews and support Israel today. Some are Evangelical Christians, or just plain well informed Christians, some are Hindus, some are atheists and some are even Muslims. Some are white, some are black, some are Asian, some are gay, some are straight. We can learn a lot from them. I’m sad to report that in my own experience, many of these people are better engaged in supporting important Jewish & Israeli causes than many of these same democratic or liberal Jews who prefer to live with their heads in the sand. In Canada, we have “Israel Truth Week” which is often led by a Righteous Gentile named Mark Vandermaas who preaches that Jews must know that Israel holds the legal title to Judea and Samaria (aka The West Bank) thanks to the Balfour Declaration and the Mandate for Palestine. If we want to give it away for any reason, that’s up to us––but lets start with the truth. And there are many others across the world who warn us about the dangers from radical Islam. Have you heard from Dr. Tawfik Hamid, Geert Wilders, Brigitte Gabriel, Pat Condell, Douglas Murray and many others who have come to our rescue?

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my many Gentile followers of all faiths and colours. Many are people that I’ve never met. They are often the most vocal supporters/readers of my columns and emails and support my efforts to educate the public at large as to the real threats facing good people all over the world. These righteous friends defend those that need defending and in particular they identify antisemites and give credit to those who deserve it. We owe them a debt of gratitude. Let’s get out of our comfort zone and show them support.

The good news is that cracks have begun. It might have started with Brexit. Certainly the Trump win is a huge opportunity for real change and even Israel was elected to chair something within the UN! The Middle East is in turmoil; however, it could be a good turmoil vis a vis Israel. Hamas and Hizbollah are busy with ISIS. Saudi Arabia is focused on Iran and visa-versa. Former arch enemies such as Egypt may slowly become our allies. The stars have aligned. Now is the time for Israel to set the record straight. Enough insane talk about a two-state solution. Many former friends and backers to the PA have had enough. They too are sick of corruption and more importantly, they have their own problems to deal with. Abbas is irrelevant and obsolete. Bibi needs to stop talking to him or about him. Abas' own people hate him. But Trump won’t initiate the formal annexation of Judea and Samaria for Israel. The Jews have to do it on their own. Countries throughout the world need to take back their states. Charity starts at home. Let the wealthy Muslim countries take in millions of their own migrants from war-torn areas if they wish. We need to be pragmatic. We can see what happens when you let in millions of undocumented, unscreened Muslim migrants from terrorist-sponsoring countries. We do need to limit Muslim immigration. One has to be blind not to see what is going on in Europe. In step with the people who voted for Trump, lets give him a chance to succeed and let’s also support Israel to do the the same. Israel needs to finally do what’s in her best interest just like every other country in the world does. If this means embracing Righteous Gentiles and ignoring some liberal Jews, so be it.

This my friends, is a limited time offer!

Is Bannon an Antisemite?

Almost since the day Trump won, I’ve been told that his new chief of staff Steve Bannon is an antisemite and is a member of the alt right.
I’ve read this on Facebook, from friends via email, from various blogs and of course CNN won’t shut up about it. Heck even large left wing Jewish organizations like the ADL have accused him of this. 



I immediately smelled a rat but conceded that I'll reserve judgement until I learn more about who this Bannon guy is. My first thoughts were:

1. Why should we take the words of his ex-wife, words said during a heated divorce no less? And even if they prove true, does that absolutely prove that he is an antisemite?  When I sent my kids to camp, I wanted them to go to a Jewish camp. I wanted them to associate with other Jewish children their age. Does that mean that I’m a racist?

2. A little digging about him and I found out that he was a former naval officer, worked for Goldman Sachs and worked in the entertainment industry. So we learned that he bravely served his country and worked for a large Jewish firm as well as in an industry known for it’s Jewishness. I ask you, is that something a real antisemite would do?

3. I can’t imagine that the Trump administration would nominate a chief of staff without intense scrutiny. Trump knows that the world is watching his every move and it would be folly to make a huge blunder right at the get go.

A day later, a colleague sent me an article by one of my favourite pro-Israel, Jewish activists, David Horowitz on the Breitbart web site. Here it is: https://www.google.com/amp/www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/11/14/horowitz-anti-bannon-hysteria-more-evidence-the-left-has-lost-touch-with-the-american-people/amp/

Turns out that the ‘renegade Jew’ article was written by David Horowitz on Breitbart’s site about Bill Krystol who lead the ‘never Trump’ campaign. It had nothing to do with Bannon hating Jews whatsoever!

Today I read another article by Joel Pollak on Breitbart who is a religious Jew who worked with/under Bannon at Breitbart and made it clear that Bannon is a good friend to Jews, is a staunch defender of Israel and an American patriot. You can read it here: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/11/14/stephen-k-bannon-friend-jewish-people-defender-israel/

In summary, not only is Stephen Bannon NOT an antisemite, he is a philo-semite (someone who likes Jews), defends Israel and is a loyal American and a great man. If he wasn't being appointed chief of staff I would assume that he would successfully sue for defamation of character.



I guess CNN, the Times and the rest of the MM (mainstream media) and the lefty organizations (Jewish or otherwise) didn’t get the memo. TRUMP Won!  Despite their vicious, unrelenting attacks against him and any conservatives (and Israel), the American people saw through their BS and voted for him. Yet they continue to twist fantastic accusations at Trump and any of his staff or supporters in hopes of shooting him down. I would think that by now even left leaners would get tired of CNN and other MM hysteric nonsense. Their bias is though the roof. They have become a joke in poor taste. Not entertaining in the least and certainly can’t be taken seriously any more (if they ever could have been).

CNN, ADL and every other organization or person who accused Bannon or Trump of being an antisemite needs to publicly apologize to them both. But they won’t! I can name dozens of real antisemitic bastards who are part of Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders camps and the Obama administration as well. 

One last thing - Since when does CNN or the Times care about antisemitism or insignificant events like the Holocaust anyways? All of a sudden they are our best friends (for the moment).

Why I Choose Trump

I notice that many right wing or pro-Republican pundits are careful not to choose a candidate. Even one of my favorite political analysts, Caroline Glick, simply pointed out why Trump has a chance to win despite all odds. He is anti-establishment and does not suffer from political correctness. You can read her excellent article here

  

But for undecided voters let me say what Caroline didn't here:

If you care about Israel and anti-Semitism it's really a no brainer. Hillary surrounds herself with some of the worst, powerful anti-Semites in the world. Most Jews know that our biggest enemies are self haters. Former Jews like Blumenthal and Soros (the billionaire) are 2 of her close advisors and funders. Then you have Abedin, her closest advisor for 20 years. A Muslim who has proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Her VP Keane is also sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood and like Hillary and her boss have been funded by states who continue to sponsor terror groups. Let's not forget about her boss who no one can argue, does not have Israel's back, despite him saying so. 

On the other hand Trump's middle east advisor is an Israeli, his top advisor is his Jewish son in law Kushner. His Jewish (convert) daughter Ivanka remains a strong force on his team. His VP Pence has always supported Israel and remains a strong advocate for her. 

Despite the establishment trying to paint Israel as the bad guy, most Americans see through the BS and remain loyal supporters. They also fear the rush of Islamic immigrants and the trouble they bring, to the US. Surely they see what is going on in Europe. You don't have to love or even like Israel or Jews to see that. While Hillary wants open borders, increase immigration from states that harbour large numbers of Islamic terrorists, is more concerned about climate change than jobs, Trump wants the opposite. For no other reason than to protect its citizens, Americans need to vote for Trump. 


Here is a short summary: Trump sometimes says stupid shit and is often painful to listen to but Hillary was directly responsible for the murder of 4 Americans in Libya and had the audacity to blame it on a video. On top of that she is currently under investigation for using an unsecured email server for top secret emails and when confronted with it, she had all 30,000 plus deleted. The damage she has done to her country is unheard of for a Secretary of State. People with similar or lesser charges have gone to prison for that.
