The long overdue death of the Jewish Defence League
"On July 9, 2021, one of Canada's oldest hate organizations quietly folded up its tent and went home. On his weekly podcast, his voice cracking in parts, Jewish Defence League (JDL) head Meir Weinstein made the following incoherent statement:
'To better deal with the threats to Canada's national security and hate crimes against ethnic communities, including the Jewish Community, it is necessary first and foremost to use legal tools and cooperate with local and federal government, [at] all levels.
I would like to announce today that I am stepping down from the activities with the Jewish Defence League, and the establishment of a new group of lawyers, researchers and security professionals assigned to investigate and document hate crimes and activities that undermine Canada's national security and bring to justice the criminals. More details about the group will be presented in the near future.
At the same time, I intend to focus on promoting Hebrew culture, tradition and history among the Jewish Community in Canada and the US as well, to ensure the continued heritage of the Jewish people for thousands of years and its connection to the land on which the great historical events of the Jewish People were engraved, the land of Israel.'
One could be accused of jumping the gun with talk of demise. After all, the announcement only related to Weinstein. But who could conceivably pick up the mantle of grand wizard of Jewish fascism with Weinstein gone? The JDL, to all intents and purposes, is no more..."
