An incident in Ottawa

This is from a Facebook entry of Nick, a student at Carleton University....
Tonight I went out to the bars downtown. It was a great night with my roommate Mark Klibanov. Around 1:45am, as we were leaving the bar, and we heard the shout of "Zionist" in Arabic. As it stands now, we weren't sure if the shouts were directed at myself, a known a supporer of Israel, or Mark, an actual Israeli.

Quickly, we both responded that yes we were Zionists. All of a sudden we were surrounded by 10-15 men who began to shout at us in Arabic. We tried to back out and run away. All of a sudden, I was struck in the back of the head. I'm not sure if it was a fist, a rock or a pipe but it left me dazed and bleeding.

We quickly ran back to the bar and stood beside the bouncers. The crowd of anti-Israel thugs dispersed.

About 10 minutes later, assuming that it was safe, we began to walk home. We were walking through a parking lot when a car pulled up next to us. The driver shouted "I fucking hit you, you Jew."

We stood our ground. Quickly we had three guys around us. We were able to push them away. As the cowards that they were, they retreated. Then I heard, shouts of "Open the trunk!" One of them opened the trunk and I saw glistening in the street light the reflection of a 12-inch machete. "Fucking Jew," he shouted. I began to run for my life as he was only 5 or 6 feet away.

I ran, and as I looked back, I saw the long shiny blade slicing through the air about 12 inches from my neck. I ran as fast I could and, thanks to my grade 9 track and field training, got away.

People who were around the scene said the blade came within inches of my neck.

Now, the debate on campuses has reached the next level. In this country, people are no longer safe if they support Israel. But you know what? I will never take back my beliefs. I support Israel 100 per cent.

But I will say this. Some of the guys who tried to kill us are Carleton students and I recognize who they are. What is this country coming to?

Did your friend report those nazi killers to the police? I hope so.

Dear Fred, does the local paper know about this? I hope you can get them arrested and stop this: this is a slow Kristallnacht!

Is this for real? Did he call the police? I know the Jew haters have impunity to say and do what they want on campus against Jews, but outside, in the real world, they would be arrested.

This is extremely worrying if true, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was. Is there a secondary source available, or a link to/screenshot of the Facebook post?

Fred - I am wondering about this incident. Was it checked out? What is Nick's last name? Why is he not saying whether he reported the incident to the police or not? There are too Qs here and not enough answers. Why did Nick and his friend walk out after just 10 minutes of finding shelter with the bouncers of the club? Were they stupid enough to think that a rowdy anti-semitic gang of 15 could just disperse in 10 minutes? Why didn't they call a cab? Something is not kosher with this tale.

Call the cops, root out the Arab garbage and buy yourself a decent 9mm pistol. Next time your life is threatened, kill the attackers!!

It is far better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Throw a bat, ball, and glove in your car back seat.
The bat to defend yourself with and the ball and glove to justfy having a bat handy.

A set of golf clubs in the trunk also works.

Maria: Nick posted his last name on facebook, and I know him personally. If he says it, I believe him.

Your questions assume complete rationality....but that is now how life works. Perhaps they live a few blocks from where they live; perhaps they didn't want to wait for the police; perhaps they just weren't thinking clearly enough....

And perhaps they have every right to walk the streets of the capital.

The aggressors should be charged with attempted murder.

Fascists should be deported back to the uncivilized world to live with the rest of the savages, Progressive types should join them, they would fit right into the culture.

Muslims are idiots. By attacking jews in many parts of the western world, by trying to silence them and by making them feel more and more threatened, the muzzies demonstrate at every opportunity, that the State of Israel is an absolute and legitimate necessity for the jewish people to survive. Does islam make people stupid?rom
