I went to UBC with Dave to cover the protest for Hong Kong. Dave described the event as "a nothing burger" but when the UBC Free Speech Club later posted on Facebook the below statement about me, the event became about "not being affiliated with neo-Nazi, white supremacist, Holocaust denier Brian Ruhe". There were over 100 comments and please go to their Facebook page and leave a comment of your own, at: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=The%20Free%20Speech%20Club&epa=SEARCH_BOX
In this video I refer to two videos where I debate with Armin Navabi and Travis Pangburn. They are:
The Free Speech Club September 9 at 9:30 PM · Some people have made note that local neo-Nazi Brian Ruhe attended our recent protest in support of the people of Hong Kong at UBC.
The UBC Free Speech Club has no affiliation with Brian Ruhe and unequivocally condemns his support for Nazism, white supremacy, and holocaust denial. These are not the values of our club, and people like Brian Ruhe are not welcome in our organization.
Unfortunately, we cannot force people to leave our protests. That being said, we informed Ruhe when he arrived that we want no affiliation with him, that we do not in any way condone his views, and he is not welcome in our organization.
Our club is dedicated to protecting free speech for all people, especially victims of evil forces like Nazism.
You have my permission to please copy any of my videos to spread the word. Please post them on Facebook. I am Brian Ruhe, a truther who is interested in the biggest problems facing the whole world. I have made over 2000 videos since 2011. I have taught Buddhism for 20 years and am the author of two books.
On May 14, 2019, this Frontline documentary was scheduled for broadcast on PBS stations across the US, but it was pulled at the last minute. The BBC (co-producer) however, aired it in Britain. Since American tax dollars fund Public Broadcasting Service, we should have the right to see this. Since the US gives Israel over 10 million American tax dollars per DAY, it is important for Americans to be fully informed about Israel's actions.
Frontline is the top in-depth news broadcast in the US: In an average week, more than 4.6 million people watch it. After numerous people complained about the cancellation, Frontline issued a statement saying it would broadcast the documentary in the coming months, however, it is not on its schedule. Now Frontline admits that it may never show the documentary – Read https://israelpalestinenews.org/frontline-says-it-may-never-broadcast-the-gaza-documentary/

While the Arabs in Gaza and Judah and Samaria, are claiming Jerusalem as their capital, it is interesting to note some interesting facts: Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people since the reign of Kind David, almost 3000 years. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab, Moslem, or so called "Palestinian" entity. Mohamad never set foot in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is not mentioned one time in the Koran. Jerusalem is mentioned over 600 times in the Jewish bible.

Debate: Will Collective Punishment Stop Terror? (Israel)
THE RUNDOWN | Critics are condemning such measures as `collective punishment' and beyond for Palestinians who carry out attacks against Israelis, and their families. Just how effective is it as a strategy to prevent future attacks? Member of the Palestinian Fatah Revolutionary Council Dimitri Diliani and Anglo Forum Chairman of the Jewish Home party Jeremy Salton debate.
Story: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday expressed his support for a controversial bill that would allow Israel to expel the families of Palestinian terrorists from their homes and forcibly relocate them to other areas of the West Bank as a method of deterrence.
'Expulsion of terrorists is an effective tool. To me the benefit exceeds the damage. Jurists say it’s against the law given how it’s defined, and it will surely be a legal challenge, but I have no doubt of its effectiveness,' Netanyahu said.
Israeli ministers voted late Sunday night to advance the bill put forth by the religious nationalist Jewish Home party. It received ministerial backing following a 'lengthy and complicated' debate over the bill by the political security cabinet and 'despite the opposition of the judicial authorities,' the faction said in a statement.
The proposed legislation would empower the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) central command to expel the relatives of Palestinian assailants from their hometowns to other parts of the West Bank within a week of an attack or attempted attack.
Explanatory text accompanying the bill promotes the measure as a method of deterrence which it says is 'the cornerstone of Israeli security and a way to save lives and uphold law and order.'
Coalition sources told The Times of Israel that the Sunday night vote by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation came in spite of a warning by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit that the proposed law was 'unconstitutional' and an assessment by Shin Bet chief Nadav Argamon that the measure would do little to boost Israel’s deterrence.
Are House Demolitions Effective Punishment for Terrorists? (Israel)
NEWS DESK | After a lengthy court battle, the I.D.F. Duvdevan unit helped demolish the house of a Palestinian terrorist who killed a soldier from their unit back in May. Is this longstanding strategy effective in preventing future attacks? Alec Pollard has the story.
A large-scale operation by the Israel Defense Forces (I.D.F.) was underway around Ramallah early Saturday, i24NEWS reports. Around 300 troops stormed the al-Amari refugee camp to demolish the house of 32-year-old Islam Yousef Abu Hamid, a Palestinian convicted of killing an Israeli soldier earlier this year, an i24NEWS contributor at the scene said.
Israel has stepped up operations in the West Bank in response to an attack Thursday that killed two soldiers in the vicinity of Ofra, in what appeared to be a copycat of last Sunday's attack that killed the fetus of a woman in advanced pregnancy while injuring seven others from the Jewish settlement. The I.D.F. blew up the floor of the building where Hamid family resides. Given the close living quarters of the camp's residents, the I.D.F. had to cordon off much of the area to perform the demolition. The adjacent town of al-Bireh was also sealed off.
West Bank Raises Security Questions for Palestinians, Israel
THE RUNDOWN | Terror attacks and clashes with Israeli security forces have raised some serious concerns about not only Israel's ability to maintain calm in the West Bank, but also the political security of Abbas' Fatah party ruling the Palestinian Authority. Is Hamas growing in popularity in the territory? Former Israeli diplomat Danny Ayalon and former Palestinian minister Ashraf Al-Ajrami analyze.
Palestinians factions called their supporters for massive protests throughout the West Bank for Thursday and Friday, while settlers and the Israeli right were organizing their own actions.
The Palestinian government was on high alert on Thursday following IDF movements responding to the shooting that claimed the lives of two Israeli soldiers at the Assaf Junction outpost.
President Mahmoud Abbas said earlier in the day in a statement 'repeated incursions into cities, the terror of the settlers is what led to this series of violent events, which we condemn and reject'.
He also condemned the campaign of incitement that is currently being waged against him, referring to a series of posters apparently calling for his assassination.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday warned that security forces will crack down on 'enemies' who try to harm Israelis.
'Last night we settle the score with the murderers who carried out the terror attacks in Barkan and (near) Ofra, and today we have endured a serious attack (that ended) with two dead soldiers. The principle that guides us is that whoever harms us and whoever tries to harm us – his life is forfeit. Our enemies know this and we will reach them,' Netanyahu said.
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said his thoughts were with the Israeli security forces who are dealing with violence in the West Bank.
