From what I understand, of the 14 children that were criminally spirited away by Lev Tahor in defiance of a court order not to leave the Chatham area, 4 of them have been returned.
When the court convened on March 5th to consider the appeal about whether or not these children should be placed in foster homes, the children and the parents did not appear. As a result, an emergency order to apprehend the children was made. As far as I know, a decision concerning this matter will now be made on April 4th.
Some went through Mexico, while the others missed their flight to Mexico, and took a WestJet flight to Trinidad and Tobago, and eventually were to go on to Guatemala via Panama. Their detainment in Trinidad was based on the fact that they could not account for the reason or duration for their trip to Guatemala. Based on the fact that the children could not be accounted for properly, as they were not being accompanied by their parents or legal guardians, they were detained in Trinidad. Once they learned about the concerns of the Canadian government, they were handed back to Canadian officials.
Also a 17 year old with her 5 month old child was discovered en-route in Calgary, and were returned to the Chatham-Kent Children’s Aid Society.
The remaining 8 children, accompanied by 2 adults are still in Guatemala, and authorities are “closing in on them” to be returned to Canada. It is only a matter of time now, until they are returned. I am sure that once found, they will resort to every legal appeal possible to stall their return to Canada.
Lev Tahor and their spokesperson are all saying that they decided to go on a holiday. Yeah, right! Who in their right mind would go on a holiday in defiance of a court order? Their intent to be in contempt of the courts is shown be the fact that they would be returning only after the court decision made a favourable decision. If not, they would remain in Guatemala.
Now there are reports that there are 3 children, and possibly more being held at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, and that they are being force fed due to dehydration from being on a hunger strike. Accordingly, the first child, a 15 year old began her hunger 2 days after being returned from Trinidad. I can’t understand how dehydration could begin within a mere 2 days.
I have to ask, what child or adolescent would come with the idea of going on a hunger strike. This is not the 1960’s – the decade of protests, sit-ins or “love-ins”.
Lev Tahor controls, and has brainwashed and poisoned the minds of these children. If their leaders told them to stop their hunger strike; they would immediately do so. So the leaders of Lev Tahor, Helbrans and his enforcers can only be blamed for this, and they should be held responsible for the health, safety and lives of these children. They are using these children for cannon fodder! They are forcing them to go on a hunger strike. If this isn’t child abuse, I don’t know what is!
Once all the children are returned, and assistance is provided to the rest so that they can return to normal society, I hope that the Canadian and Ontario governments begin to prosecute Helbrans and his 3 stooges. This would include forcing them to pay the cost of having the children returned to Canada. Let’s face it, Lev Tahor defied the court order to remain in Chatham, and so should be responsible for assuming all costs for the recovery of the children. Their wealth amounts to millions of dollars as has been shown.
Members of Lev Tahor are now donning bright yellow Stars of David with the word “JEW” written on it, reminiscent of the Holocaust when Jews were forced to wear these stars on their clothing. What an absolute sickening perversion of history’s greatest genocide. Don’t they comprehend that Lev Tahor is only being subjected to prosecution due to the abuse inflicted on their members, especially the children, and for defying the courts? They are the first Jews to “cheapen” the memory of the holocaust and the millions that perished. How revolting!
Next, who is Pamela Palmer, Lev Tahor’s Media Coordinator? My first question in this regard is whether she is being paid or not? Irrespective of this fact, the Ontario government should also be looking at her role in this whole affair. Was she part of this conspiracy to have the children leave Canada in this way? Can she be charged with conspiring to be in contempt of the courts? I hope that the provincial Attorney General begins to look at this matter. In saying that, she may also be held responsible for endangering the health and wellbeing of these children.
