Update: the attack occurred not in downtown Ottawa, but just on the other side of the Ottawa river in Ottawa’s twin city, the Gatineau, PQ. This area is still within sight (and walking distance) of both the Supreme Court of Canada and the Parliament buildings. BCF has the Michael Coren interview with Nick Bergamini.
Nick Bergamini is a student at Carleton University and active in student government.
According to his facebook page:
“Quickly, we both responded that yes we were Zionists. All of a sudden we were surrounded by 10-15 men who began to shout at us in Arabic. We tried to back out and run away. All of a sudden, I was struck in the back of the head. I’m not sure if it was a fist, a rock or a pipe but it left me dazed and bleeding.
We quickly ran back to the bar and stood beside the bouncers. The crowd of anti-Israel thugs dispersed.
About 10 minutes later, assuming that it was safe, we began to walk home. We were walking through a parking lot when a car pulled up next to us. The driver shouted “I fucking hit you, you Jew.”
We stood our ground. Quickly we had three guys around us. We were able to push them away. As the cowards that they were, they retreated. Then I heard, shouts of “Open the trunk!” One of them opened the trunk and I saw glistening in the street light the reflection of a 12-inch machete. “Fucking Jew,” he shouted. I began to run for my life as he was only 5 or 6 feet away.
I ran, and as I looked back, I saw the long shiny blade slicing through the air about 12 inches from my neck. I ran as fast I could and, thanks to my grade 9 track and field training, got away.
People who were around the scene said the blade came within inches of my neck.

Here, in Ottawa, Canada’s Capital?
Here, right downtown Ottawa – just blocks from our Parliament and the Supreme Court of Canada?
Question: This happened in the club district, downtown Ottawa. At 1:45 in the morning, this is hardly an abandoned or ‘quiet’ part of town – being so close to the University of Ottawa campus, there are usually quite a few people about! The Ottawa Police usually have a ‘presence’. It’s their job!
So, I am curious to hear their side of the story: how come these guys are not arrested yet?
OK – so Nick Bergamini and Mark Klibanov got themselves beaten up and bloodied.
OK – so some guys with a machete chased them, trying hard to decapitate them.
Goodness knows, we all loose our tempers, some times!
A much more dangerous crime occurred in Ottawa that night!
They were engaging in hate speech – right in the middle of a crowd!
Do you realize just how many people might have had their feelings hurt?
How many might have been traumatized: by hearing there were 2 Zionists in our midst?
How do the police expect us to be able to sleep tonight? We are a city – nay, a community – traumatized!
After all, we ran that Zionist Ann Coulter right out of town (yes, she may be an anti-Semite, but she is still a Zionist!)! Yeah, the Ottawa Police made sure she was not permitted to speak!
We thought we could relax a little…..
But no! Now these two Zionists crop up! Right in the middle of the City!
They even freely and openly admit they are Zionists – and through the admission of their very existence, they traumatize a whole crowd!
Just think of those poor thugs – they must really have had their feelings hurt! They were so traumatized, they got their machete out and went after the Zionists!
This is really, really terrible! These two Zionists have provoked these poor guys so much, they might never calm down from it and suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder for the rest of their lives.
Yet, Nick is obviously still free to write this up for his facebook page! Writing down all this self-incriminating evidence – how he admitted openly that he was indeed a Zionist!
So – how long do YOU think it’ll take the Ottawa Police to arrest Nick Bergamini and Mark Klibanov for their hateful speech!?!?!
And the Ottawa Police have still not arrested them… Sheeeeesh!!!
