New documents detail Lev Tahor abuse
Child protection officials in Quebec were concerned about a mass suicide pact in the Lev Tahor community, according to evidence filed in a Chatham court Tuesday.I don't know if that's coming from him or the paper, but either way, they've already made clear they're hostile to Israel, using the same mentality prevalent with the Satmar leadership.
Testimony from a Quebec court trial involving members of the controversial Jewish sect sheds light on what life is like inside it for kids, particularly girls, and how more than 150 people fled the province for Ontario last month.
Social workers familiar with the community discuss administration of melatonin to calm the children, fungus resulting from women being forced to wear socks or stockings at all times, and a hectic bus trip from Quebec to Ontario where kids were made to urinate in plastic bags rather than stopping.
Uriel Goldman, spokesman for the Lev Tahor community, calls the allegations false. The group has maintained that it is the victim of a smear campaign by enemies of the anti-Zionist sect.
A social worker testified at the Quebec trial that the feet of one of the children were blue from the fungus.That Goldman is one very sick, sick pervert, for daring to trivialize the injuries the women suffered.
“There was not a toe that was not infected,” she said. “It was based in the toenails, which meant that her nails were very, very thick and her feet very swollen, all blue, and all her toes were infected.”
“We heard about concerns about fungus,” said Goldman. “It’s a very, very minor thing, but because there were some concerns we tried to do more than we needed. We brought a special dermatologist.”
The worker testified that the infection was widespread among women in the community, as they were made to leave their socks on. The worker said a meeting with the community leaders led to a loosening of this restriction.
But now, here's where the paper lurches into something very stupid:
The documents were entered as evidence in an Ontario hearing that will decide whether and how the province upholds a Quebec court ruling to remove 14 children from three families in the right-wing Orthodox Jewish community.Oh come on now, why are they falling back on that cruddy "right-wing" cliche? Haven't the cult already made clear they're anti-Israel? Left and right practically don't mean anything; they're irrelevant. What matters is that we have on our hands a cult that's espousing a twisted form of religion mixed with Islam and combined with child abuse. And for all we know, they could be willing to commit suicide from what the experts warned. Unfortunately, it appears the court in Ontario is slow to react, since now, they're adjourning the case until January 10. What kind of justice is this?
