Gentile family hides out in Canadian church fearing deportation to Israel

Father launches hunger strike, says discrimination against non-Jews led him to file refugee claim

ed note–if this were a Muslim family, fearing deportation back to one of those HORRIBLE MOOZLIM countries, it would be headline news all over the JMSM. HOWEVER, when it is a Gentile family fearing deportation back to Israel after personally experiencing violence and racism against them for their being of the ‘goysiche’ variety, it gets as little play as possible.


For Ilan and Irit Brovman, fear of being deported to Israel, where they claim they suffered from discrimination because they are not Jewish, has led them to seek sanctuary in a Canadian church. The couple, along with their two children — Tom, 8, and Katrin, 5 –  have been living for more than a year in a church in a Toronto suburb to escape arrest and expulsion.

The Brovmans arrived in Canada from Israel in 2007 and filed refugee claims upon landing at the airport. The claims were rejected and subsequent appeals on humanitarian grounds were also unsuccessful. They were slated to be deported in July 2011 but sought asylum in the church.

The family, which moved to Israel from Russia in 1992, claimed they suffered from discrimination by Israelis because they were not Jewish. “We tried to go to the police and we tried to talk to teachers. People just refused to believe the fact that our son was beaten because he’s not Jewish,” said Ilan Brovman in an interview to the Toronto Sun on Sunday.

“We are concerned about the racism since we are Russians and not Jews living in Israel,” he said. “We have been working hard in Canada and trying to be model citizens.”

Brovman began a hunger strike on June 29. “I don’t plan on eating until something happens to us,” he said. “We are afraid the border services will storm into the church and take us and put us on a plane.”

“It has been a very difficult year for us,” said Brovman. “We are scared and my wife and kids haven’t left this church for the entire time.”

West Hill minister Gretta Vosper told the Sun her congregation voted in June 2011 to allow the Brovmans to stay at the church.

“Mr. Brovman was deeply troubled by the thought of returning to Israel,” Vosper said in a letter. “The threat that his children would experience the abuse while living there was overwhelming for him.”

    And to think there are Christian Zionists who support this kind of treatment of a brother and his family is disgusting.

    They are not the right color for multicultural Canada

    I don’t doubt abuse by Israeli’s because they are not Jewish as Israeli’s are the most racist people I can think of, but the reader must wonder why they went to Israel from Russia in the first place.

    No sympathy for them when they went to occupied Palestine where was their concern for Palestinians living in refugee camps dotted around the world plus they can return to Russia anyway.

    I believe the family, Jewish Israelis are extremely bigoted against gentiles,as a rule. Leaving Russia for occupied Palestine though? Was this their only option?

    Minister Gretta Vosper confirms, by her name, that this is not a R. Catholic church.

    Muslims are Gentiles too.

    And if it were in the news, you can bet it was for propaganda purposes.

    If I’m misinterpreting your statement, sorry.

    Good point Blake. Why would you leave Mother Russia for jew paradise?? Maybe they’re not circumcised. I have an isreali friend who married a Phillipina and they have a baby. They are leaving for similiar reasons

    well the Jews created all these tools to get what they want & legalize it at same time, gentiles will try to use these tools but they don’t have the $$$$$ to smooth the way. So will this work? The longer they stay in sanctuary the better for the family.

    In 1992 I should have known what I know now but I did not. And I do feel guilty as I had a Palestinian son-in-law who tried to school me but I had been thoroughly brainwashed & thought I knew it all in 1992.

    Canada is as overrun by ziofilth as
    the good ole USofA. According to friends,
    you can’t talk about the holohoax
    without the threat of arrest. It is
    considered a hate crime to NOT
    believe the hype.
    Its not called AIPAC in Canada, but the
    lobby is as influential if not more so.

    I feel sorry for this couple but have to ask a question:how he and his family got to Israel in the first place?
