If this were a gathering to consummate an obscene pairing of Klan members and neo-Nazis, the corporate media and the mainstream left would be all over it. Expect scant exposure of this from either entity. Bags of accelerant soaked dung, a good crosswind, and some matches come to mind as one possible remedy to the lack of expected coverage for the occasion.

JDL Blog: A Letter to Stewart Bell (National Post) in Response by JR in Ottawa

http://jdlcanada.wordpress.com/2011/01/09/a-letter-to-stewart-bell-natio...

"...the real enemies of democracy are academics in universities who wilfully corrupt and brainwash students (sometimes using intimidation tactics) to serve their Marxist/Islamist agenda..

 "...What would you do if the authorities did little or absolutely nothing to stop the attacks because of political correctness or the Government's alliance with Islamists? For political reasons the OPP didn't protect victims of Native unrest in Ontario, and are unlikely to protect victims of Islamic Fascism.."

and lots more vile spew proudly displayed by the JDL.

I don't think Israel approves - at least not officially. In England the Embassy has officially condemned the JDL-EDL alliance.

Isn't the JDL considered a te**orist org in Israel & USA?

Not officially, I don't think. The FBI has described the U.S. JDL as "terrorist" and of course there have been convictions of individuals for terrorist acts, but I don't think it's a "banned" organization in the sense of (say) Hezbollah in Canada. Likewise, Israel banned two parties, Kach and Kahane Chai, in 1994, both founded by or connected with Meir Kahane (founder of the JDL in the U.S.), but I don't think the JDL as such was active in Israel.

Jewish and English Defense Leagues Join Forces in Toronto Rally

http://onepeoplesproject.com

"We have covered the EDL previously here on Liberty's Lamp. They are a white power group out of England who are very much like the old National Front, only instead of hating Jews they have a new schtick of embracing Jews for the purpose of ganging up on Muslims.

The JDL is the Jewish Defence League. It's a much older extremist group that goes back a few decades. Here in the US the JDL has tumbled to a pathetic number - primarily consisting of retired and aging doughy tea-bagger types. They don't make much of an impression - aside from an occasional old porky wearing one of their t-shirts at a hate rally.

In Canada, the JDL seems to have a few more members and are slightly more visible in their actions.."

EDL Attempts to Bury 'Paedo Price' Story

"In another desperate attempt to bury the horrible truth about one of their leadership, Stephen Yaxley Lennon - still bizarrely using his 'Tommy Robinson' alias - has this morning posted a rant about Afghan Muslims.."

These are the sorts of people Meir Weinstein JDL wacko has allied himself with on behalf of the zionist cause in Canada. But their murderous Islamaphobia is apparently just what the doctor ordered, in Weinstein's view.

Uncovered: The Unholy Zionist-EDL Marriage:

http://www.rebelnews.org/opinion/hate/383589-uncovered-the-unholy-zionis...

"It is surely not hard to see why a fascist organisation recruiting Jewish Zionists seems like such a strange association at first. In their minds however, the Zionists have convinced themselves that they are manipulating the EDL, which may well be the case. As Roberta Moore said in an interview with Haaretz recently;

'They think the league is exploiting us, while it is really we who initiated the Jewish division. If anything, we are exploiting them.'

Funny enough, this is a claim that some BNP members also share. According to one report, 'BNP leader Nick Griffin ahs claimed that the English Defence League is being manipulated and directed by Zionists to create a race war on the streets of Britain.'

OK, so regardless of who is manipulating whom, we now have Jewish Zionist members of the EDL, and EDL members taking up Israeli flags as a standard part of their protest apparel, but who else do they associate with? A photo taken on 14th August this year shows Jonathan Hoffman, the Vice Chair of the Zionist Federation, waving an Israeli flag at a counter protest outside Ahava in Covent Gardens, standing side by side with Roberta Moore...

The fact that people such as Moore allegedly had or have associations with the extremist terrorist groups such as Kach and are joining forces with the EDL should be a cause of concern not only to British society as a whole but to Jewish people in particular who are at risk of such extreme elements claiming to speak for them.."

There's also a vigil:

Join a peaceful Candlelight Vigil:
Stand against colonialism, racism, Islamophobia and all forms of violence across Turtle Island

WHAT Candlelight Vigil
WHERE in front of 700 Lawrence Square Shopping Centre
(one block west of Lawrence West subway stn.)
WHEN Tuesday, January 11, 7:00 - 9:00 P.M.
WHY Claim public space honouring struggles and dignity of marginalized peoples and stand in solidarity with those who continue to fight against various forms of racism and white supremacy on Turtle Island and everywhere else.

Christian Peacemaker Teams, other faith based and secular human rights organizations will hold a candle light vigil honouring struggles of marginalized peoples and our common humanity across religious, racial and
ethnic identities. The vigil is scheduled as an alternate voice to a nearby rally supporting the English Defence League (EDL), a British right-wing group responsible for a wave of violent anti-Islamic/anti-Muslim street protests in the United Kingdom since 2009.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Defence_League.
http://anti-racistcanada.blogspot.com/2011/01/jdl-hearts-edl.html

The EDL support rally, believed to be the first in Canada, is being organized by the Jewish Defence League (JDL) of Canada at the Toronto Zionist Centre, 788 Marlee Ave.

Come and give your public support to those targeted by such violent activities. Organizers particularly encourage women to attend, and expect that anyone joining the peaceful candlelight vigil enter into the space from a place of grounded calm. At no time will we resort to any form of violence even if provoked. Others standing in solidarity might be in more vulnerable
positions and could be adversely affected by expressions of anger.

For more information on the vigil, contact the undersigned, or Shaista Patel, First Nations Solidarity Working Group (FNSWG) shaista.patel@utoronto.ca

Just heard that this thing may blow up. Apparently Canada's largest Hindu group will be joining the JDL, and they say they will send speakers and a special security team to join the JDL thugs.

Interesting, their spokesperson is a Naresg Patel, same surname as the First Nations guy. Patel versus Patel?

Don't be silly, that's just Ron Banerjee, his group is a one man operation even though he claims to be "Canada's largest Hindu advocacy (sic)". No one takes him seriously.

In the new EDL-JDL bag of mixed-nuts and useful idiots, a few brown ones are thought to mitigate the embarrassing antics of the nazi-boys and yob elements. Is this Patel one of the Gujarati muslim-hating psychos Harper so loves doing business with by chance? As for hearing 'this thing may blow up' well when you're dealing with fascist scum like this anything can happen.

"There's an East-Indian fellow that the JDL drag around with them - Ron Banerjee of the ungramatically named 'Canadian Hindu Advocacy.' He's a supporter of the far right wing BJP party and the extremist government of Gujurat - which has been implicated in fostering anti-Muslim pogroms and is led by a guy nicknamed 'Hitler'...

And the Canadian chapter of the Jewish Defense League still wants to consult with the EDL on the 'Jihadi menace'. Go Meir Weinstein!"

"The first joint initiative to combat Jewish support for the English Defence League within the community has been launched. The 'Not in our name - Jews Against the EDL' campaign is backed by more than a dozen organizations..

'Now our community faces a new threat. The EDL claims to be our allies in the fight against extremism. In reality, they are violent racists with BNP members and Nazi sympathisers among their ranks. It is time for the Jewish community to come together to expose the EDL as the racist thugs they are..'"
