The original Quebec case focused on children ranging in age from two months old to 16 years old.
Nachman Helbrans, son of leader Schlomo Helbrans, has no comment on the children who were removed and said his religious community is being unfairly targeted.
"The circumstances surrounding the seizure are unknown, but it has been said that the two children are not connected to the Quebec court ruling last month.
Another source says the children are a brother and sister, around 3 or 4 years of age". This is no different than the Czar's soldiers seizing children from Jewish homes so that they can be made into good Russian citizens. Now that we are no longer persecuted by the government, we turn a blind eye to our brothers and sisters who are!? Does the religious freedom of individuals magically disappear when they are given the arbitrary label of "cult"!?
