    The Al-Soufi family is facing new threats as police investigate individuals

    The Al-Soufi family is facing new threats as police investigate individuals responsible for the harassment campaign

    Rick Boswick, Lily, and Ed Jamnisek are under investigation after disrupting restaurant re-opening

    October 14, 2019

    Yellow Vests Canada Exposed

    Canadian Anti-Hate Network

    Police are investigating after Rick Boswick, Lily, and Ed Jamnisek disrupted the reopening of Soufi’s Restaurant, a much loved Syrian eatery in downtown Toronto. The restaurant had closed days earlier after a barrage of death threats and abuse, only to reopen with the help of Dr. Mohamad Fakih, owner of Paramount Fine foods.

    Boswick, Lily, and Jamnisek went to the restaurant and were intercepted at the entrance by Fakih. Filming the interaction, Lily asserted (without evidence) that the family came as refugees and demanded to know where they got their money. She then started yelling about communism and ‘Antifa’.

    Comments on one of Boswick’s videos from that interaction refer to Fakih and the Al-Soufi family as invaders and parasites, and say it’s only a matter of time before they are attacked with a molotov cocktail.

    Boswick and Lily are also setting their sights on Mohamad Fakih, who is no stranger to this type of harassment. Earlier this year Fakih won a landmark defamation suit against video blogger Kevin Johnston, who made similar comments and is facing a hate crime charge for his videos which target women, LGBTQ+ persons, and Muslims. Johnston is an associate of Boswick, Lily, and Jamnisek.

    The harassment campaign against the Al-Soufi family began on August 22nd with a now-deleted video Lily posted on Youtube. In it she claims the Al-Soufi family is connected to ISIS, that their food is tainted, and she names the restaurant and gives its address. This was in retaliation to their son monitoring one of Rick Boswick’s court dates, who faces a charge of uttering threats towards an anti-fascist. In the now deleted video, she also says they filmed the son within the courthouse, which is illegal.

    “They’re fucking ISIS militants. Former militants . . . You come here. You have a plan. You don’t like Christianity. Okay. You want to wipe out Christianity. You want to turn this country into Sharia law . . . we know everything, where you located. And we want Canadian people to know if you order food from [address], you are supporting terrorists. Did you know that they send money back home and Canadian soldiers die in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq. When you go to that restaurant [address] you’re supporting terrorists.”

    This harassment campaign escalated after a video went viral showing the son standing next to anti-fascists who are blocking an elderly woman’s path and shouting at her at a People’s Party of Canada event at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. The son and the family apologized, but the harassment continued.

    Boswick and Lily quickly made more videos identifying the son, publishing information on his family and their restaurant, and calling them terrorists because they are Syrian. For the next week the far-right ecosystem in Canada had one target: the Al-Soufi family. The family started receiving a**barrage of death threats; some were posted as comments on Boswick's videos.

    After news that the restaurant would close due to these death threats, far-right video bloggers started claiming these threats were made up. In a video dated October 10, Lily says “[the son] is not a good Muslim. He’s a terrorist . . . [the Al-Soufi family] got advice from Muslim Brotherhood . . . to play victim . . .just tell that you’re getting death threats.”

    I may be mistaken...but it seems to me that the Al Soufis’ son (Alaa) was a young man who was actively involved in a lot of counter protests against Far Right events...and that he was part of a group(s) that would regularly find themselves protesting against Yellow Vests and other Far Right groups...and that after awhile all of these people get to know one another because they all show up at the same events...and then they doxx each other...but now the Far Right is taking it a significant step further by coming after this kid’s family at their restaurant?

    Is that what is going on here?

    I am predicting the usual Whataboutism nonsense from the Right: ie “Oh yeah? Well what about defending the honour of the old racist hag that wanted wanted to attend her anti-immigration rally?” LOL...zero fucks given.

    These thugs are threatening to firebomb the parents’ restaurant over some grievance with the kid. I can only imagine how Bedwetter and his pals would be carrying on if a gang of Syrian immigrants threatened to burn down the homes of the parents of these Far Right idiots...OMG! “Muslim terrorists who have can’t assimilate into our culture.” SMH...These are the Right Wing idiots who are failing to keep up with our evolving culture.

    It wasn't an anti-immigration rally that that elder lady was stopped from attending. It was a political meeting for Maxime Bernier but feel free to twist the facts and insult an old lady. I guess you only agree with free speech when it is speech that you agree with. Typical.

    How about death threats, racial slurs and labelling the families as ISIS terrorists, and calling the customers supporters of these so called terrorists. Is it not as bad as obstructing that lady from attending the far right rally??

    Rubin started off with The Young Turks. You know Cenk & Anna. That's about as progressive as it gets.

    But now describes himself as a classic liberal. Guess he saw the light.

    As usual the right wingers will not condemn these despicable acts by these far right extremists, but still bring up the original obstruction of that lady as an excuse, that we already condemned!!

    He's a grifter and he's a right winger now. Joe Rogan made him look silly on his podcast, and he did it so politely.

    And no one did anything to her more serious than to get in her way as she tried to cross a street. The son of the family who had to close their restaurant because of death threats and harassment — which the 'elderly lady' has denounced — didn't even speak to the couple.

    The problem was never the original incident or any political meeting; the problem is the parasitical pseudo-fascist camp-followers who have attached themselves to a self-invented cause and their professions of hatred and threats violence.

    What progress?

    The division in our country is getting worse with each side claiming their behavior is not as bad as the others. In my eyes stopping an old lady with a walker from attending a rally because of who was speaking is just as bad as the threats to parents of an activist. Both acts were to instill fear in people, complete bullshit on both sides, this is become tiresome.

    Sometimes the claims are valid. Blocking someone's path by simply standing in a crosswalk is not in any way 'as bad as' sending his uninvolved family threats of arson, murder, rape and bombings? The woman whose path was blocked agrees, and she has said so publicly.

    While her self-proclaimed 'defenders' continue to publicly urge violence and death in pointless after the fact retribution, she has denounced them.

    What progress?

    Most of these problems are attributable to ludicrous policing policy that no one, either politicians or police, is ever held to account for. The right to protest does not include the right to interfere with the rights of others to enter buildings, or interfere with the rights of others to drive on the public roadways, or to do anything else that would otherwise be a violation of the law. The police tolerate illegal behaviour on the theory that allowing some excesses by protesters will prevent violence from escalating. This tactic does not appear to work. It seems only to encourage further indulgences by protesters, particularly by "professional protesters" (professional by virtue of employment, or by virtue of how they like to spend their time) who know how to push the line, and are in the business of doing so. In short, the police are not doing their job at these protests. It would have been a very simple matter for the police to have established cordons for protesters that allowed the public to enter the event unimpeded.

    These incidents would never happen if protesters were certain that blocking roads or building entrances would lead to routine arrests.

    Old ladies should not have to fight for the right to attend political events. That right was won long ago.

    Death threats are, of course, wrong. Are these threats online? Does anyone have a link? Google produced lots of stories describing the threats, but I gave up after 20 links when none of them reproduced any of them.

    Of course the time and place to have made these worthwhile points about public order was weeks back, in the original thread about the woman's crossing being impeded.

    This one is about violent threats that continue to be made against people who had no connection with that incident or with the the behaviour of those who did.

    What progress?

    Silly me. Here I was trying to take a larger view of the problem of protest related incidents instead of myopically focusing on one small element where blame could be attached to one side or the other. What a killjoy I am to be pointing out that these problems really lie at the feet of politicians and police, rather than simply on the combatants who take advantage of their mismanagement.

    I'll bear your advice in mind, but I'm not sure I'll take it.

    As to your premise that the protester's family have nothing to do with what happened, you must be in possession of a lot more information than I have seen reported. All I've seen is a carefully crafted statement from the family which, while regretting the incident, falls a little short of accepting full responsibility on the part of the son. Not that the quality of their statement would justify death threats. It might, however, justify the opinion that the family is not as "misaligned" with their son's behaviour as you assume.

    Instilling fear in someone regardless of the circumstances is the same to me, blocking an old lady from going into an event can cause her to fear for her life, you don't know what the intentions are of someone blocking her, yes the threats are more radical but are meant to cause the same thing, fear, we have no idea whether these people would carry out their threats, 99% of the time threats are never carried out. Put yourself in the old lady's shoes, you need assistance to walk and young men are blocking your path to where you want to go. What would most people feel in that situation? Probably fear.

    Apples and oranges. If the antifa protesters had followed the old lady home and threatened to fire bomb her house with Molotov cocktails then perhaps the comparison would be more valid.

    It's not apples and oranges, why did they pick her out? I'm sure there were other people going to the event. Why not pick on any of them? Because they would have got their asses kicked that's why. Gutless cowards picked on someone who they knew couldn't fight back. It's reprehensible what happened to the family, I feel for them but that didn't have to close their restaurant, in fact they opened it a day or two later. I guess the threats didn't hold much water after all. The people who threatened the family are also gutless cowards. I also don't believe they were followed home by anyone. A threat is a threat, it also matters how the person who was threatened feels. If they felt threatened in both situations then it's the same in my eyes.
