With that in mind let’s read about this most recent incident surely just one among an undoubtedly long list of crimes committed by this group that don't garner any attention.
We’ll start with news published today by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency-
Then I'll provide some additional background via NowToronto
"A Canadian member of the Jewish Defense League was indicted by a grand jury in Washington DC for charges that include an assault on an Arab teacher outside the AIPAC conference in Washington, D.C.
Yosef Steynovitz, 32, of Thornhill, Ontario, faces one count of assaulting a man with a dangerous weapon and one count of assaulting another man.
The third count, assault with significant bodily injury, refers to the beating of Kamal Nayfeh, a 55-year-old Palestinian-American community college teacher who was reportedly walking to the conference when the attack happened, according to the Canadian Jewish News.
The third the count includes a hate crime enhancement for “anti-Arab bias” that could lead to an increased penalty if Steynovitz is convicted.
The dangerous weapon referred to in the indictment is a pole, as well as a shoe, both used in the attack on Nayfeh.
Steynovitz will be arraigned in court in the District of Columbia on Jan. 3."Background from when this incident took place

"A member of the Jewish Defense League Canada, a group involved in several recent anti-Muslim protests in Toronto, has been charged with a felony count of assault in connection with the beating of a Palestinian-American community college instructor protesting the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPIC) conference in Washington, DC, on March 26. The case is being prosecuted as a hate crime by the U.S. Attorney.
Yosef Steynovitz of Vaughan will appear in court in Washington later this month. JDL Canada members claim they went to the AIPIC conference to confront “anti-Israel gangs” planning to block the entrance to the conference.
But video capturing part of the alleged assault shows JDL members in distinctive black garb with a yellow Star of David logo beating 54-year-old Kamal Nayfeh, causing an eye injury that required 19 stitches.
A second JDL member from New Jersey (JDL’s parent organization was founded in New York) was also charged in the incident.
Ben Doernberg, another AIPIC protester who says he was “jumped” by JDL members, suffered a concussion. His symptoms were too severe to permit him to have an extended conversation when I contacted him for comment.
Most of the protesters who locked themselves to the front doors of the conference centre or unfurled a banner inside were affiliated with If Not Now, a Jewish group opposed to Israeli government actions in the Occupation Territories. A recent UN report accuses the Israeli government of imposing an “apartheid regime” on Palestinians and urges other governments to support boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel.Video via Haaretz
Who was the JDL protecting, then, from what Weinstein describes as “anti-Israeli, pro-Jihad gangs”?
One shows another altercation involving JDL Canada “security director” Zaza Vili and another member attacking protesters who were filming as they made their way to the event. Vili can be heard calling one of the two men filming a “racist fuckin’ piece of shit. Hope you die,” before abruptly turning on his heels and challenging the man to a fist fight. The other man with Vili then smashes the video camera."Oh and btw the way.. Zaza Vili is affiliated with "Soldiers of Odin" ,an alleged white supremacist group, (unknown to me until this article) that is infiltrated by the JDL.
I wonder if "soldiers of Odin" was actually created by the JDL?
"Pegida Watch Canada, a group set up to monitor anti-Islamic organization PEGIDA, or “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West,” describes Vili as “the Dude,” because of his resemblance to the bearded character played by Jeff Bridges in the Coen brothers classic The Big Lebowski. Vili’s Facebook page, which hasn’t been updated since 2012, features a selfie with former Fox News personality Glenn Beck.
When he’s not at his day job (Vili works as sales representative for an international trade show production company), he hangs with white supre-ma-cists from Soldiers of Odin Canada, a Canadian offshoot of a Finland-based group, as he did at last month’s anti-Muslim gathering at City Hall protesting M103, MP Iqra Khalid’s anti-Islamophobia motion. (Coincidentally, one of the sons of the Norse god Odin was named Vili, or "Will").
Shalom Toronto reports that Vili’s full name is Tsitlishvili. It’s quite com-mon for JDL leaders to employ aliases. Weinstein, for example, has used the alias Meir Halevi."
That type of infiltration takes me back to the report, originally posted here in 2013, then relinked earlier this year, regarding outed Jewish KKK Grand Dragon/American Nazi Party secretary and member!
