‘I am the one who hit you, you f-----g Jew.'

OTTAWA - A well-known student supporter of Israel at Carleton University and an Israeli engineering student at the university say they are counting themselves lucky to have survived an attack with what they say was a machete near a Gatineau bar early Monday.

Nick Bergamini, 22, vice-president of the Carleton University Students’ Association, said he and roommate Mark Klibanov were leaving Le Volt bar on Promenade du Portage at 1:45 a.m. when a group of about 10 men began yelling in English and Arabic that they were Zionists and Jews.

Let us recognize the risks these noble opponents of Zionism took. They courageously risked being labelled "anti-Semites."* They pursued their quarry after the first attack, bringing in reinforcements. Does such indefatigability count for naught?

* The use of the machete for their lofty purpose leads me to suggest they be called "Smites." Then the Zionists would be "anti-Smites."

I haved two university degrees from the University of Ottawa, and lived 10 years in Ottawa. I knew the Ottawa-Gatineau bar scene a bit, and believe me such attacks can happen, especially late at night.

What upsets me is the blatant anti-Semitic nature of this attack (even though the two me were mistaken for Jews). What bothers me worse is that it was only the CanWest newspapers (Ottawa Citizen and the National Post) who reported this story. The other national media -- CTV News, CBC News, the Globe and Mail, the Toronto Star -- censored the story, out of political correctness and out of fear of offending Muslims.

Muslim-based Jew hating is a fact, yet our national media purposely look away from it.
