The Green Party of Canada has fired its outspoken justice critic, Dimitri Lascaris.

In a statement, the Green Party announced that Lascaris was removed, along with Lisa Barrett and Colin Griffiths, from its Shadow Cabinet because they publicly criticized the leader of the B.C. Green Party, Andrew Weaver. Weaver was critical of his party for considering a policy endorsing Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS). B’nai Brith Canada had proactively reached out to Weaver as early as July 8, calling on him to publicly oppose the boycott motion.

B’nai Brith also had previously urged Green Party Leader Elizabeth May to dismiss Lascaris as justice critic after it exposed that he advocated on behalf of a terrorist who murdered three Israeli civilians in Jerusalem. Lascaris submitted the anti-Israel boycott motion to the Green Party’s Annual Convention in August and was among its main proponents.

Last week, B’nai Brith divulged in a release that Lascaris, while speaking in Toronto at a “town hall meeting” about Green Party policies, suggested Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be barred from entering Canada.

Lascaris repeatedly referred to Netanyahu as a “fascist” during the meeting. In the release, B’nai Brith CEO Michael Mostyn strongly criticized Lascaris.

“The removal of Lascaris and his colleagues from the Green Party’s Shadow Cabinet is a welcome development from a party that has faced months of criticism over what many members of the Jewish community viewed as policies that unfairly targeted them,” said Amanda Hohmann, National Director of B’nai Brith’s League for Human Rights. “Lascaris has gone on record repeatedly in recent weeks expressing his support for the BDS movement — which the Canadian Parliament condemned earlier this year — and his removal is a positive sign that the Green Party is treating this matter with the seriousness that it deserves.”

May, who has said that she personally opposes the anti-Israel boycott movement, has called a Special General Meeting of the Green Party in Calgary for December 3-4. B’nai Brith, in the aforementioned release, quoted Lascaris as saying the motion to repeal the charitable status of the Jewish National Fund (JNF), may be revisited at the December meeting.

Anti-BDS Motion – Why Does Canada Sanction Other Countries for Human Rights Violations but Not Israel?

By Julie Lévesque

Global Research, February 26, 2016

BDS-Logo-Israel-Boycott-400x242

 

The international community, speaking through the United Nations, has identified three regimes as inimical to human rights – colonialism, apartheid and foreign occupation… Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem contains elements of all three of these regimes”. – John Dugard, UN’s former Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

This week, the Canadian Parliament overwhelmingly voted in favour of a motion condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

The motion, passed on February 22 by a 229-51 vote, states:

“That, given Canada and Israel share a long history of friendship as well as economic and diplomatic relations, the House reject the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which promotes the demonization and delegitimization of the State of Israel, and call upon the government to condemn any and all attempts by Canadian organizations, groups or individuals to promote the BDS movement, both here at home and abroad.”

First, there is no such thing as “friendship” between states. States have no friends, they have interests and nothing else.

Second, the BDS movement does not promote “the demonization and delegitimization of the State of Israel,” as the motion puts it, in a very unfactual and questionable manner. The BDS movement promotes international law and Palestinian rights and condemns Israel’s total lack of respect for both.

Despite its emotional and propagandist wording, the motion completely fails to hide the fact that it condemns criticism of human rights violations by Israel. This calls for some explanations.

By condemning a peaceful movement that tries to bring Israel to account, Canada expresses its total disregard for human rights and international law and its sheer hypocrisy when faced with human rights violations.

There are currently 22 states targeted by Canadian sanctions, several of them for human rights violations. And Israel, being Canada’s “friend”, is not one of them, even if the sanctioned countries’ misdeeds pale in comparison to the death and destruction Israel has imposed on Palestinians for decades.

While not one sanction has been imposed on Israel for its war crimes and crimes against humanity, some countries have been sanctioned by Canada simply for “misappropriating state funds.”

There are no words to describe the scale of this hypocrisy, but, we don’t need any since the facts speak for themselves. Before looking at the list of sanctioned countries and the reasons behind their sanctions, it is worth mentioning only a few facts about Israel.

As mentioned in the quote above, Israel’s policies and practices violate the most fundamental human rights of the Palestinians. The Hebrew state has been the subject of at least 77 UN resolutions since 1955, and has been criticized in at least 26 resolutions for its violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

In July 2015, a report by Amnesty International found “compelling evidence of serious violations of international humanitarian law by Israeli forces” as well as “strong evidence of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity” during Israel’s 2014 assault on Gaza.” Evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity were also found during Operation Cast Lead in 2008.

Of course, most reports from the U.N. as well as the ones from human rights organizations mentioned below pretend to be “balanced” by equally blaming both sides, the Israeli army as well as Palestinian militias. If opinions can be “balanced”, facts, however, cannot, and the scale of death and destruction doesn’t lie. Most, if not all the damage and loss of life occurs on the Palestinian side. Every single time.

These few facts about Operations Cast Lead in 2008 and Protective Edge in 2014 prove it:

Cast Lead:

[B]etween 1,385 and 1,419 Palestinians were killed during Cast Lead, a majority of them civilians, including at least 308 minors under the age of 18. More than 5000 more were wounded. Thirteen Israelis were also killed, including 3 civilians.

According to the UN, 3,540 housing units were completely destroyed, with another 2,870 sustaining severe damage.

More than 20,000 people – many of them already refugees, some two or three times over – were made homeless.

Protective Edge:

At least 2,100 Palestinians were killed, of whom the United Nations identified more than 1,500 as civilians, and approximately 11,000 people, mostly civilians, were injured. The tens of thousands of Israeli attacks caused the vast majority of destruction during the fighting, which left uninhabitable 22,000 homes, displacing 108,000 people, and left hundreds of thousands without adequate water or electricity.

Attacks by Palestinian civilians injured 61 Israeli settlers in the West Bank as of October 31, the UN reported. In addition to the three Israeli teenagers who were killed in June, nine Israeli civilians were killed by Palestinians.

How many dead Israeli civilians compared to Palestinian civilians? How many housing units destroyed in Israel? How many homeless Israelis? Let’s be honest. A truly balanced report would reflect the facts and not try to equally blame both sides. The forces in this conflict as well as the damage done are anything but equal. They are completely disproportionate.

That being said, Israel’s contempt for international law is legend and with this motion, Canadian Parliamentarians have just proven one more time they are bought and sold.

It is now worth taking a look at the countries against which Canada has placed sanctions and why, since all of them, without exception, pale in comparison to Israel’s bloody record.

The list clearly shows how Canada has no credibility whatsoever when it comes to condemning states for their lack of respect for human rights or people who protest against criminal states, for that matter.

Here is the list of the countries sanctioned for human rights reasons. It should be noted that several, if not all, background explanations provided on the Canadian Government web site (in brackets) are totally biased and simplistic, when not pure propaganda.

Belarus: “[D]eteriorating human rights situation.”

This includes “widespread harassment and detention of opposition party campaign workers, the physical assault of senior opposition figures, arbitrary use of state powers to support the incumbent president, pressure on state workers and students to support the President, restrictions on the ability of opposition campaigns to communicate with the electorate, and control of the state media to severely restrict access by opposition candidates.”

What happens it the Occupied Territories is much worse, yet no sanctions against Israel.

Burma: “[G]ravity of the human rights and humanitarian situation…, which threatened peace and security in the entire region.”

Libya: “[V]iolence and the use of force against civilians.”

Day-to-day in the Occupied Territories.

Russia: “Activists were beaten, kidnapped and tortured [in Ukraine]. The Russian government encouraged, and supported, these measures.”

Meanwhile, more and more “Palestinian children [are] beaten and tortured by Israeli security forces while in detention.” Read also Israeli NGO B’Tselem’s report Backed by the System: Abuse and Torture at the Shikma Interrogation Facility.

Sudan: “[H]umanitarian crisis and widespread human rights violations resulting from the conflict in Darfur region”

Syria: “The Syrian Government’s violent crackdown on peaceful protesters led to many civilian deaths and injuries. Thousands of civilians were detained arbitrarily and there were credible reports of summary executions and torture.”

Israel arbitrarily detains Palestinians on a regular basis, including children, and summary executions and torture and common.

According to B’Tselem: “At the end of Dec. 2015, 422 Palestinian minors were held in Israeli prisons as security detainees and prisoners, including 6 administrative detainees.”

According to Human Rights Watch:

“Israeli security forces continued to arrest children suspected of criminal offenses, usually stone-throwing, in their homes at night, at gunpoint; question them without a family member or lawyer present; and coerce them to sign confessions in Hebrew, which they do not understand… As of October 31, Israel held 457 Palestinian administrative detainees without charge or trial, based on secret evidence. Israeli prison authorities shackled hospitalized Palestinians to their hospital beds after they went on long-term hunger strikes to protest their administrative detention.”

Last year, Amnesty International has condemned “what it called a ‘clear pattern’ of… summary killings… as the number of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces this month [October 2015] rose to at least 61. )

Ukraine: “Activists were beaten, kidnapped and tortured.”

Zimbabwe: “marked escalation in human rights violations and violence directed at the political opposition, a stolen election, the denial of a peaceful democratic transition and a worsening humanitarian situation.”

Other reasons for which Canada has sanctioned countries include:

– “political crisis and conflict” (Yemen, Somalia);

– “violations of ceasefire and hostilities” (Ivory Coast, Democratic Republic of the Congo);

– “misappropriated state funds” (Egypt, Tunisia);

– “heavy loss of human life and widespread material damage resulting from a conflict” (Eritrea, Somalia);

– “nuclear program” (Sanctions on Iran, which has a nonexistent nuclear program, but none on Israel, which is known to possess between 200 and 400 nuclear warheads.)

– “invasion” (Sanctions on Iraq for the invasion of Kuwait… but no sanctions for the U.S. which has illegally invaded Iraq, among other countries, and of course, no sanctions on Israel for decades of occupation);

– “continued escalation of hostilities” (Lebanon)

– “support for the Revolutionary United Front in Sierra Leone” (Liberia)

– “violation of the constitution and international law” (Ukraine).

– “conducting a test of a nuclear weapon” (North Korea)

– “acts of violence and the increase in acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea against vessels” (Somalia)

– “engaging in violent conflict, much of it along ethnic lines” (South Sudan)

As you probably noticed, none of these countries has been accused of war crimes or crimes against humanity.

Canada imposes sanctions on countries for misappropriated state funds, but regards war criminal state Israel as a “friend” which deserves that it condemns its own citizens for protesting against its supreme crime.

Parliamentarians need to explain this nonsense.

As a member of the United Nations, Canada should, as stated in the U.N. Preamble, “reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and… establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained.”

By voting in favour of this motion, Canadian Parliamentarians have failed to honor their obligations.Miserably.

Open Letter To The NDP: It’s Time To Condemn Israel’s Massacres from Independent Jewish Voices – Canada

Open Letter To The NDP: It’s Time To Condemn Israel’s Massacres

NDPIJVLetterGaza

Originally published on IJV’s rabble blog. 

Dear New Democratic Party of Canada,

As fellow Canadians who are concerned with human rights, we call on you to condemn Israel’s murderous bombing campaign on the defenceless population of Gaza.

Since Tuesday, July 8, Israel has killed over 190 Palestinians in Gaza, including more than 25 children, in addition to wounding over 1,000 people, most of them innocent civilians. Israel’s artillery has destroyed crucial infrastructure for water, sewage and electricity, and countless families’ homes. During this same period, Hamas rockets have not caused a single Israeli death or serious injury nor damaged important Israeli infrastructure. While Hamas’ indiscriminate firing of rockets onto civilian areas must be condemned, of far greater significance are the Palestinian deaths from Israeli rocket attacks.

The majority of Gaza’s population — roughly 80 per cent — are Palestinians who were expelled from their homes leading up to and directly after Israel’s declaration of independence. Israel was founded on the violent dispossession of over 750,000 Palestinians, whose removal was needed in order for Israel to obtain a Jewish-demographic majority, and hence label itself as both “Jewish and democratic.”

Palestinians in Gaza live under a military occupation, since Israel maintains effective control over Gaza’s borders through a blockade by land, sea and air. While Israel’s military occupation of Gaza dates back to June of 1967, its blockade has been going on for over seven years. The blockade, a blatant and illegal form of collective punishment, has been condemned rightfully by the NDP. It was imposed on the Palestinians by Israel as formal retribution for electing a government that refuses to recognize Israel’s violent theft of Palestinian land, and Israel’s ongoing military occupation of Palestine.

We are chagrined that the NDP has yet to speak out against Israel’s bombing of civilians in Gaza. These are war crimes, since it is clear that Israel has used its precision-guided missiles to target families’ homes, hospitals, schools, ambulances, and even a centre for disabled children. The horrific images coming out of Gaza should elicit strong and immediate condemnation from any individual or organization that is concerned about human rights.

Why then, we are wondering, has the NDP failed to condemn these atrocities? Since Israel’s bombing of Gaza began last Tuesday, the NDP has failed to release any formal statement condemning the massacres that the bombing has caused. While we appreciate the NDP’s call — despite coming after a week of Israeli bombings — for a ceasefire, we are deeply disturbed by the NDP’s language in this statement.

In the statement, foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar states that the NDP “have reiterated that Hamas’ continued rocket attacks are unacceptable. We have also voiced our deep concern regarding the escalating violence and reports of civilian deaths.” It appears that while the NDP considers Hamas’ ineffective rockets to be “unacceptable,” Israel’s world-class rockets — that have killed at least 25 children — cannot even be mentioned, nor can the national identity of the civilians who have been killed.

The statement also calls for “restraint” from both sides, without explaining how the babies Israel is killing in their sleep should show restraint. How should hospitals, schools, ambulances, and unarmed families that Israel is bombing indiscriminately show restraint? It is time for real restraint in using this kind of misleading false equivalence that is totally disconnected from the reality of Israel’s massacres against the people of Gaza.

We are absolutely appalled that the NDP has yet to release a statement condemning Israel’s bombing of Palestinian civilians, and expressing condolences to the Palestinian people and to the thousands of Palestinian-Canadians whose family members in Gaza have been maimed, killed, and made homeless by Israel’s bombings. Paul Dewar issued a statement “on behalf of all New Democrats” expressing condolences for the passing of Ariel Sharon, a former Israeli general, Defence Minister, and Prime Minister who was directly responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent civilians (while failing to condemn his legacy of terror), but the NDP has yet to offer condolences for the killing of over 190 Palestinians, the majority of whom are innocent civilians.

As Jewish-Canadians, we want to be absolutely clear that conservative organizations supporting these war crimes and claiming to represent Canada’s diverse Jewish communities do not speak on our behalf. If the NDP were to follow its conscience and support justice and peace in Israel and Palestine — against the interests of Canada’s Israel lobby groups — we would stand with you in solidarity and support. Canada’s Israel lobby groups represent the Netanyahu government’s racist policies of colonization and apartheid, which can only lead to further bloodshed. It is up to the NDP, as official opposition, to oppose Netanyahu’s and Harper’s positions, and stand with the majority of Canadians in support of international law and the human rights of all parties.

With hope for justice and peace,

Traitors Without Borders

harper-1-1

1. I’ve completely had it with Israel and its pernicious lobby in these United States. However, as angry as I am, I still enjoy laughing at our Canadian brothers and sisters, especially the ones who are afraid that the US will take over Canada. Not that they shouldn’t be worried, but the fact is, if the United States wanted to take over Canada it would have to first liberate Canada from Israel, an unlikely occurrence.

By the way, General Abdel Fattah Sisi is a Jew, but I digress.

Back to Canada.

All you them thar Canadiuns who want to try to take your country back might want to start planning for a huge demonstration on December 1, 2013. You see, The Israeli Prime Minister for Chanadian Affairs, Stephen Harper, is being honored by the Jewish National Fund of Toronto on December 1st, 2013 at the Metro Centre in Toronto. It will be a huge, lavish, Israel-firster affair during which Haper’s complete, total, 100 per cent ownership by Israel will be proclaimed as the greatest thing since someone got the idea and men should cut off the end of the dicks.  It’s called the Negev Dinner 2013.

harper-2

On, and thanks to Xymphora for noting this, to make matters even worse the, this same bunch of Israel-firsters is going to use 2013 Negev Campaign funds to build a bird sanctuary in Israel and they are going to name this sanctuary after Stephen Harper.  Needless to say, all of the tuyuur at Mantiq al-Tayr are pissed. Really pissed.

According to the JNF Toronto website, you can call here to get more info. Canadians of the world unite! And call that number and tell them what you think.:

2. In the meantime, members of the US Congress continue to worship Israel and to sacrifice American interests at the alter of the “Jewish State.”  There’s a little publicized outfit full of Israel-firsters in Congress called, and I’m not making this up, “The Congressional Israel Allies Caucus” (part of the Israel Allies Foundation) and it is up to no good, as one might expect.  As I write these words these assholes are meeting in Jerusalem, Israel – that’s what they call it and you can see above, for a three day conference dedicated to kissing Israel’s ass.

“Thousands of Christians, along with lawmakers from around the world, will participate in an Israel Allies Foundation conference beginning Sunday.

“The 25 visiting lawmakers are leaders of pro-Israel caucuses in their countries, affiliated with the Israel Allies Foundation, founded by former tourism minister Rabbi Bennie Elon, and the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus.”

Here’s an interesting quote from their “About” page.

Pioneered by MK Rabbi Binyamin Elon, the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) works with Congress and parliaments around the world to mobilize political support for Israel based on Judeo-Christian values.”

Here’s another one. Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Noor al-Haqiqa or “Snip” as we call her in the chatroom.

snip

Ms. Snip, guest editor

“The Foundation addresses a range of issues, most of which are spearheaded by the Caucus. These issues include moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s united capital, addressing Iranian nuclear ambitions, making sure US funding does not go to terror connected entities, fighting against the delegitimization of Israel, and holding the UN and UNRWA accountable.  These issues are gravely important as US foreign policy has strategic bearing on our country’s security. “

Somebody ought to record the above and add a laugh track.

Go here to see if your congressman is a TRAITORS member.

iaf-2

A bunch of these dimwits in the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus (TRAITORS), have recently sponsored yet another bill to move the so-called US Embassy (which it isn’t) to Jerusalem.

These fuck heads are also on Facebook.

I find it interesting that when I come across articles about this conference we don’t seem to get the names of the politicians who are actually attending.

Instead of running around at Bilderberg conferences, I think our investigators in the alternative media need to be checking out the likes of The Congressional Israel Allies Caucus” and it’s mother organization the Israel Allies Foundation.

3. Okay it’s video time. First let’s take a look at the absolutely insane Trent Franks (Habayit Hayehudi, Arizona), co-chair of the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus and who just the other day said he intends to introduce legislation calling for war with Iran, as Franks talks of his devotion to a foreign power.
