The police try to make clear cut case into a ‘he said – she said’ situation.
Here’s a case in which clarity is not the desired outcome of a police inquiry, obfuscation, or a blurring of the facts is. Though the key of the story might have been the fact that a Jewish man is attacked by two Muslim women for daring to ask them how they feel about a potential headscarf ban, and then calling him a dirty filthy Jew as they attacked him for efforts.
That the Montreal police supposedly tried to get the man to delete the video footage from his phone camera, makes it, IMHO, of more importance than the attack itself. This is the state running interference for Muslims at the expense of the truth. This similar to the Michigan Dearborn police confiscating vídeo camera equipment from Christian missionaries they were arresting while evangelizing Muslims on a public sidewalk.
The original You Tube video was pulled, but thanks to Vlad for running down the original poster and getting the video uploaded to MRCTV.
Montreal Jewish man attacked by two Muslims women at coffee shop.
There is a lot of information i don’t have yet but expect to have within the next 24 hours.
But here is some of what I do know.
I believe this happened very recently, Sunday, Nov 3rd 2013 at a coffee shop in Montreal. Tim Horton’s I believe. (Except no apostrophes allowed in Quebec you know!)
I believe that the Jewish man simply asked the women how they felt about the proposed law banning conspicuous religious clothing and symbols, that would have affected them all. He started filming them when they began to be hostile to him. Which was, as I understand it, right away. So yes there was some activity before he began filming, but nothing that one would normally think of as a provocation, and frankly, even if there was, does it justify this?
The police did come and tried to make him delete this video and also talked him out of pressing charges. He now regrets his decision to not press them.
They apparently attacked him again outside the coffee shop. I don’t have video of that yet.
Youtube pulled this video down and threatened to close this man’s account as well.
