Jewish students threatened with decapitation at University of Toronto

Then There was Light has important news of an event at the University of Toronto's "Israel Apartheid Week": BREAKING: Pro-Palestinian security at Toronto university threaten and assault Jewish students: “Shut up or I’ll saw your head off”
two Jewish students were assaulted by the Palestinian “Security” team for being “disruptive” (asking a legitimate question “does Israel have a right to exist”). The Palestinian “security” smacked a student in the head and grabbed him by his neck, while another “security” officer told a second Jewish student to “Shut the F**ck up or he’ll saw his head off"...All of this was done in a crowded lecture room with over 100 witnesses!!

I was there, there are no pictures, filming and taking pictures was prohibited (they seem to have a problem with the general public hearing what they say) it was reported to the police who chose (as usual) to do NOTHING...
By the way What's Behind the Enormous Denial that Beheadings are Related to Islam?

Let There Be Light also points us towards this story:
CHANNEL 4 has come under fire from Islamic leaders over a television documentary showing how gay and lesbian Muslims suffer under their laws.

Its director has already had death threats because homosexuality is strictly forbidden by The Koran.

Now station chiefs are bracing themselves for a backlash. Its digital channel More 4 will show A Jihad For Love tonight.

It lifts the lid on the battle gay and lesbian Muslims face as they struggle with their faith and their sexuality.

The documentary not only shows gay Muslims daring to kiss, holding hands and talking about getting married, it also provides harrowing reports on the suffering they have faced under Islamic law.

And it reveals the death threats and punishments handed out to gays in countries including Egypt and Iran.

Indian film maker Parvez Sharma – who spent six years making the programme – revealed: “I have had death threats on my blog after making this film. Some countries have even banned it.

“I’ve been called an apostate because Muslims think I have insulted Islam but I think it will open up a debate.”
Does Israel have a right exist? Do gays have a right to exist? Off with my head! And the police will do nothing, if it it means, in their way of thinking, keeping the peace, unless and until we have political leaders who make it clear that individual rights come before the right of anyone to get away with criminal actions because they presume to stand for some group identity that the politicians and police fear they can't touch without causing violence. Our leaders must have no tolerance for group identity thugs, for the cowardly fears of tribal violence that an embrace of multiculturalism engenders; if they do, all our heads are chopped off.

Fighting back is not only risky in the sense of physical harm or worse, it's embarrassing to most. No one wants to be the first to dance.
