My name is Don Sharpe and I am a member of the Jewish Defence League. Two weeks ago we were wondering how we were going to publicize this event, then all of a sudden that didn’t seem to be a problem. We’ve invited Robert Spencer to Calgary to talk about the rise of ISIS, and the rise of Anti-Semitism.
Free Speech . . . . . . Some people don’t want us to have this discussion.
Sha Shtil. – But the rhetoric about Islam from around the world is deafening! The nightly news is a mosh pit of conflicting opinions on the latest horror of ‘Extremist’ attacks by ‘Radicals’ and ‘Terrorists’. Calgarians have been beaten up on our streets and beheaded on vacation.
Yet we’re told to be silent…. don’t make these people, whoever they are, angry. Well, we will not be silent. When we say ‘Never Again’, we mean just that. The Jewish Defence League is a national organization of volunteers and OUR TOLERANCE for Jew Hatred is ZERO.
We know from history that hatred of the Jews never ends with the Jews. We believe that our community deserves the truth about about anti-semitism. We believe we have the right to self defence of our lives, families and property. Christian Barrier is here tonight supporting us in his role as Krav Maga instructor.
We must not run from adversity because of inexperience or fear. We are Free People. We will meet, we will speak. We will sing and we will dance! We will join with others who value these principles of FREEDOM. The JDL is not just for Jews. The JDL does not back down. We ask you all to stand up with us, shoulder to shoulder and support us.
Now, please ensure your cell phones are turned to silent as I introduce our Guest Speaker for this evening. We also ask that you not take any pictures or record the event, we have The Rebel.Media reporter Sheila Gunn-Reid here tonight to do that.
