We have experienced our second protest by our Palestine community in our fair city, the second one with a higher police presence was conducted without incident. The previous one was also a Palestinian protest rally condemning the war in Gaza/Israel, and when a few Israeli supporters showed up, instead of keeping to a peaceful demonstration, the Israeli supporters got roughed up.
I suppose that is permitted in our country, but I really do wonder just what they hope to accomplish from so far away. I suspect that nobody is listening, least of all our government, since they are already on record as supporting the Israelis in this fight. As a Canadian I support our government, and as an individual I do as well.
On Friday, July 25, an opinion piece written by a Mr. Michael Den Tandt, in the Calgary Herald, where he wrote about John Baird, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, and how Baird has all the facts on the Canadian side to support the Canadian decision. It is an interesting article, and if you wish, please take a look: the facts
I DON’T KNOW WHO PENNED THIS ONE:
I have no idea who put this together, but I do agree with the thoughts expressed. I got it a few days ago, and I thought it worthy of including in my blog.
“In 732 AD the Muslim Army which was moving on Paris was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
…in 1571 AD the Muslim Army/ Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lepanto.
…in 1683 AD the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.
…this crap has been going on for 1,400 years and half of these damn politicians don’t even know it !!!
…if these battles had not been won we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non – existent; Judaism certainly would be… And let us not forget that Hitler was an admirer of Islam and that the Mufti of Jerusalem was Hitler’s guest in Berlin and raised Bosnian Muslim SS Divisions: the 13th and 21st Waffen SS Divisions who killed Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and any other "subhumans".
Reflecting A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
Pause a moment, reflect back. These events are actual events from history. They really happened!!!
Do you remember?

No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.
Absolutely No Profiling!
They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old, Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males, alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
Have the American people completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason???
Let’s send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves — if they have any such sense.
As the writer of the award winning story ‘Forrest Gump’ so aptly put it, ‘Stupid Is As Stupid Does’.”
Interesting isn’t it!
This essay comes via a friend. It is written by a Mr. Giulio Meotti, and Italian journalist,
Read on: “The people of Israel are valiant, going about their daily lives knowing that Muslim killers might explode a bomb or rocket in any public place at any time.
Even more valiant are the Israeli soldiers, who are now fighting inside Gaza, house by house, spied on by cruel eyes, hated by old and young, targeted by beheaders, longed for by their families. These lone Jews fighting in a long night hold the free world’s destiny in their hands.
These stubborn Israeli Jews are alone – alone in resisting in a battle for all of us. It has been calculated that since the year of the founding of the state, more than 60,000 rockets have fallen on Israel. The Israelis are victimized and they are alone, abandoned by the world — now, just as then.
In the Second World War, hope didn’t come from the Western avant garde, but from the Jews who rebelled against tyranny. The same is happening today Open any Western newspaper and you will read about the trendy Israeli life under Hamas’ rockets, life as usual, while the Arabs die. No mention of Israel as the most heavy bombed nation in the world. No mention of the trauma inflicted on two generations of Jewish children.
Israel is the first line of Western defense in the battle for non-Muslim survival and prosperity in the world. And now that the Jews are running for shelters and employing their brilliant Iron Dome, the world is burning with jealousy of Israel and what it achieved for its people in a mere 65 years.
For the UN, for the Christian bodies, for the White House, for the European Union, for the complacent public opinion and its journalistic sentinels, an independent Jewish State bearing the name “Israel,” with Jerusalem as its capital, a renewal of life in the land of the Bible, a vital Jewish people restored after 2,000 years to its own holy land, has raised unresolved questions and disturbing conclusions.
The Israelis are a very special people because they know how to live in the present and make this present worth living, while the West has drained its peoples’ souls and made their lives meaningless, with only shallow-minded hedonism and materialism remaining. This is why Gentiles often hate the Jews.
The sagacious American author Eric Hoffer gave voice to the most tragic Holocaust-related 20th-century truth: "I have a premonition that will not leave me, as it goes with Israel so will it go with all of us".
A peaceful and unique nation like Israel and its people have to resort to violent means to survive. My heart breaks for them .

I got this from National Geographic and it made me think others might enjoy this video. Take a look: Seals
A Muslim fanatic and a Christian fanatic, a Jewish fanatic, a secular fanatic, an atheist fanatic, a communist fanatic – all of them are the same.
The thinking that, ‘If you don’t think like me, that if you are not with me, then you are against me;’ this is something to condemn.
Siamese twins walk into a bar in Canada and park themselves on a bar stool.
One of them says to the bartender, "Don’t mind us; we’re joined at the hip. I’m John, he’s Jim. Two Molson Canadian beers, draft please."
The bartender, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers. "Been on holiday yet, lads?"
"Off to England next month," says John. "We go to England every year, rent a car and drive for miles. Don’t we, Jim?" Jim agrees.
"Ah, England!" says the bartender. "Wonderful country… The history, the beer, the culture.."
"Nah, we don’t like that British crap," says John. "Hamburgers and Molson’s beer, that’s us, eh Jim? And we can’t stand the English – they’re so arrogant and rude."
"So why keep going to England?" asks the bartender.
"It’s the only chance Jim gets to drive.”
Have a Great Day, and be nice to one another.
