On Friday afternoon, July 18, nearly 1,000 anti-Israel extremists gathered on the steps of the City Hall in Calgary, Canada.
At first, they just waved Palestinian flags and chanted anti-Israel slogans.
But then they saw a small gathering of pro-Israel protesters, including a few peacefully waving Israeli flags. That’s when the big pro-Palestinian protest turned violent. They attacked a man holding an Israeli flag — taking that flag, stomping on it and ripping it to shreds. But when the man tried to get his flag back, they knocked him to the ground with a barrage of punches. After that first attack, the pro-Israel protesters left the steps of City Hall, retreating to safety across the street. But the Arab extremists followed, chasing them against a wall, beating them bloody. One young woman, Samantha Hamilton, was beaten until she blacked out. Another young man, Jake Birrell, had his Israel flag tied around his neck like a noose, and dragged down the sidewalk.
The rioters got away with this – just as if they had been in Gaza, instead of Canada.
This is a dark day for Canada. Not just the riots. But the official response to them. From the police who were hiding. And politically correct city leaders who prefer it were all swept under the carpet.
No, this won’t do. Not in Canada.
Please sign the petition found at the bottom of this post which is addressed to the Calgary Police Service and City Council, demanding criminal charges be laid against the violent rioters – and that City Hall formally condemn the violence as un-Canadian.
But we need to do something more. We need to fight back using the law, even if the police and city leaders won’t.
Sun News is hiring one of Calgary’s leading lawyers to fight back on behalf of the victims of this violent outburst.
Mens Rights Edmonton respects the rights of individuals to peacefully protest, but condemns the violence enacted by these pro-palestinian protestors on peaceful counter demonstrators. Please help us take a stand against violence and intolerance. We are asking our supporters to please chip in to the Sun News legal defense fund for Samantha Hamilton, Jake Birrell and the other victims of pro-Palestinian violence.
And tell your friends: we’ve got to stop the riots.
