NDP Thomas Mulcair’s chutzpah typical of pro-Zionist Israeli sycophants Letter to Editor by Ian V. Macdonald

Let2NatPostIanVM copy 3

HP -The hatchet man for the firing of the decent Christian Morgan Wheeldon was one Brad Lavigne (Levine?) who came out of nowhere to do the dirty work and quickly crawled back into his hole to continue as an “advisor”. I bet there are plenty of dubious skeletons in the supposedly clean NDP’s closet, including the comment by Stephen Lewis that if there should be a war between Canada and Israel, his son would be on the Israeli side.

Dear Sir

Mulcair conflict of interest

At the time of the NDP leadership convention, July, 2012, a Canadian Jewish watchdog association opposed the election of Thomas Mulcair as leader on the grounds that he was financed by the Israeli Lobby and that his primary loyalty was to the State of Israel. He thereby faced a conflict of interest unacceptable for a Party that claimed to be 100% pro-Canadian and, unlike the older parties, relied on donations from the “little people”, as distinct from corrupting, self-serving “capitalist” donors. Mulcair’s undivided loyalty to Israel was not a public, nor even a party, issue at the time, but burst out during the Federal election campaign with Mulcair’s sordid firing of Morgan Wheeldon, one of his party’s most enthusiastic and effective candidates, for once allegedly having criticized the Israeli Occupation. The fact that the firing was a knee-jerk reaction, with no hearing for the popular candidate, must have shaken even the most dedicated Party members to the core, and stopped idealistic potential new supporters in their disillusioned tracks!.

Such perfidious action, showing more concern over Israeli sensitivities than over the reputation of his own party, would have been sufficient to reverse the growing electoral momentum, but there were other serious mistakes, perhaps contrived, that reflected acquiescence to Lobby pressure, the most decisive being the failure of the NDP to exploit Prime Minister Harper’s “love affair with Israel” and grovelling to rabbis that left the PM open to ridicule and charges of outrageously poor judgement in the damage the “alliance” did to Canada’s self-respect and image as a sovereign nation. Add to these negatives the confusion of the meaningless “Change” platform and Mulcair’s decision not to have the good grace to apologize and resign, and the recent headline “Mulcair looking for 70%” at the Leadership Convention (see NP April 6. 2016) must be seen as well beyond chutzpah.

WAKEUPCANADA

I wrote to most senior NDP officials, beginning 2014, saying that retaining Mulcair as leader was a prime case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I received a reply from only one, the righteous Paul Dewar, who ironically was defeated. He attempted to explain his Party’s support of the rape and dispossession of Libya by NATO and murder of its enlightened pro-Canadian, anti-Israel Leader, who had done more for his people than any leader in history – yet another campaign opportunity left unexploited. With this record of treachery to both Party and nation, Mulcair should be lucky to get 7%, not 70, at the forthcoming Leadership Convention.

As ever,

911, TPP & THE NDP: OPEN LETTER TO TOM MULCAIR – LEADER

By Monika Schaefer

MONIKA300 copy

“911 is the litmus test… You cannot plead ignorance, almost 15 years later, as a politician. “

~ Monika Schaefer

Dear Tom Mulcair,

It is right and good that you are opposing the TPP. I agree, it is a terribly undemocratic, secretive, and harmful so-called trade deal and it seems insane that any government serving its own people would sign on.

Here is the key – who is really in charge, and to whom do our MPs have allegiance?

I have learned that all of the MPs in the government of Canada serve an alien power. How do I know that? None of you are willing to talk about what really happened on 9/11 and who really did it. It is practically common knowledge now that the official story is patently false, and yet, none of our representatives will address this false flag, the seminal event which triggered the “War on Terror”. This proves to me that the perpetrators of 9/11 carry the power, and our MPs are merely their puppets.

 NDPBldg7?

There have been many false flag events since 9/11, and the frequency of these provocative deceptions is increasing. I realize it is not a good career move to talk about 9/11, but when we are on the brink of World War 3, how can you, in good conscience, still be complicit by maintaining your silence on the seminal event of our century?

9/11 is the litmus test. History will judge us by how we responded when we learned that 9/11 was not what it was made out to be. You cannot plead ignorance, almost 15 years later, as a politician.

The same Zionist cabal that brought us 9/11 are bringing us the TPP. This is the New World Order, and we the people are not interested in this One World Government which seeks to enslave us.

It is time to stop this insanity!

Sincerely,

Monika Schaefer
Jasper, Alberta

Subject: Liberals sign job-killing TPP
From: thomas.mulcair@parl.gc.ca
Date: Mon, 8 Feb 2016
While the Trudeau government has gone ahead and signed the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, there remains many uncertainties about what’s in store for Canada.
 
The Harper government first negotiated this deal in secret. Now we have the Liberals agreeing to a deal that can’t be renegotiated! Any concerns or changes raised in futureconsultations won’t matter.
 
We do know that the TPP will:
 
– put thousands of good paying jobs at risk
– add hundreds of millions of dollars to already soaring drug costs in Canada
– handcuff Canadian innovators and creators by giving the United States the upper hand on intellectual property
– weaken family farms
– accelerate foreign control of our businesses
– hamper Canada’s ability to legislate in the public interest due to Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanisms
 
New Democrats will not stand still while the Trudeau government fast-tracks massive changes leading to pink slips for our workers. Please join us in stopping the TPP:http://www.ndp.ca/tpp 
 
Let’s work together to protect our shared interests and values.
 
All the best,

Open Letter to NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair: Will your government assist B.C. in analyzing the Site C Dam on the Peace River? by Erik Andersen

KeepthePeace copy 2

Mr. T. Mulcair – Leader of the NDP
House of Commons Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K1A 0A6

30 November, 2015

Dear Mr. Mulcair:

Thank you for circulating your recent note, a note in which you asked for financial support from the over three million Canadians who voted for your party on October 19. I have a few comments, an urgent request and a suggestion.

Comments:
As I’m sure you realize, not all of those votes came from NDPers; many of them will have been cast by strategic voters who believed the NDP candidate stood the best chance of defeating the conservative candidate in their riding. For future success, you need to find ways to persuade those voters to stay on board with your Party.

Prime Minister Trudeau and his federal Liberal Party are in the same position but, now on the world stage, they are even more vulnerable to a swift change of heart should they disillusion those who voted for them. In many ways, they will need the cooperation of your NDP MPs if they are to maintain the support that swept them into power – which leads to my next point:

Urgent Request:
On an urgent basis, would you be prepared to dedicate a small working group to analyse the BC Liberals’ plan to build its proposed $9-billion hydro-electric Site C Dam on the Peace River?

With increasing energy – pun intended – many British Columbians have gathered apolitical, sound, financial, environmental and technical evidence in their quest to persuade Premier Christy Clark not to proceed with the project. Their entreaties have been ignored; ignored to such an extent that pre-project tree-cutting and in-river back-hoe work is proceeding, heedless of several court cases which have been filed.

Further, the premier has refused to put the project before the B.C. Utilities Commission – a board which was struck specifically to analyse the rationale, quality and costs of such projects. It is believed that one reason for this refusal is that BCUC has given the project a failing grade in the past.

Saying there were still a lot of unanswered questions that could benefit from a moratorium of three or four years, Harry Swain, Chair of the Federal-Provincial Review Panel for Site C  HYPERLINK “http://www.uvic.ca/research/centres/globalstudies/people/associate-fellows/swainharry.php” http://www.uvic.ca/research/centres/globalstudies/people/associate-fellows/swainharry.php called the failure to put the project before the BCUC a “dereliction of duty”.

Further, in a CBC-BC Almanac interview Richard Bullock, former chair of BC’s Agricultural Land Commission, said that the BC Liberals’ removal of a vast area of Class A agricultural land in the Peace River District was a “sin against humanity”.

These individuals are not radicals, Mr. Mulcair. They were appointed to their positions because of their training, qualifications and experience.

Understandably, opposition to the project is strongest in the prime agricultural lands of the Peace River District. That said, all British Columbians will be taxed to pay the bills, not just for the current estimated cost and the inevitable capital cost overruns, but also for the decades of interest on the $9B. All that for a dam for which power-demand projections clearly show to be unnecessary as well as being agriculturally and environmentally unconscionable and abusive.

That opposition is all the more persuasive in the knowledge that governments in many parts of the world – Africa, India and America – are moving to greener, less expensive, less concentrated and less damaging alternative energy sources. What are those diversified sources? Solar, geothermal and wind turbines come to mind.

To emphasize without making this message even longer: the evidence has been accumulated and prepared not by radical “naysayers” but by professionals and responsible lay people alike – people who would be more than happy to share their work if you would be willing to name a small task force to study the matter and take action in the House on its findings.

In these days of the increasingly volatile climate that is negatively affecting our traditional sources of food – California being but one – it is essential to all Canadians that our B.C. government be prevented from building an expensive legacy project that would flood 83 kilometres of Class A farmland, destroy three generational farms and obliterate thousands of acres of wilderness – all while proven, job-creating, non-invasive alternatives are available.

Suggestion:
With or without NDP cooperation with our new government, I believe that if you were to show you are open to addressing crucial issues like this on behalf of British Columbians, we believe it would  encourage those Canadians who voted NDP  or not to “Throw a dollar in the pot” for the NDP.
Sincerely,
Erik and Catherine Andersen

[Editor’s Note: This article is Alberta Al’s reply to NDP leader Tom Mulcair’s email to him stating “I know that the NDP is the only party that can defeat Harper and deliver true, progressive change to Ottawa.  You can count on us to repair the damage that Harper has done—we’ll fight for you and your family.”]

—-

I have already voted for the INDEPENDENT candidate in my riding of Edmonton-Strathcona where Linda Duncan, NDP MP, is seeking her 3rd term. At the outset of the announcement of this election which, in my humble opinion, ought not to have been called, only the old line parties elected their candidates. I feared that I was doomed because neither an Independent nor an Alberta separatist was running. But to my pleasant surprise I saw 2 weeks ago in the Edmonton Journal that 8 people were running for 8 different parties INCLUDING the Independent. At 79 years of age and having been a small businessman (lawyer) for over 40 years, part time farmer and small fruit grower I could see storm clouds gathering over Canada in 1950 when I was 14 years old. I could see over the past 50 years that changes beneficial to the Canadian public were wanting. Instead, our politicians became more entrenched and power went to their heads. I have seen a gradual erosion of our freedoms, the passing of so-called anti-terrorist legislation and laws against hate propaganda. And as though we didn’t have enough law enforcement tribunals Human Rights Commissions were set up across our nation to stifle our freedoms. I have seen our once great nation have a great deal of respect as a neutral nation on the world’s stage, to becoming one of the most hated because we have aligned my country with the Zionist apartheid nation of Israel. And you Mr. Mulcair, with Trudeau and Harper, have aligned yourselves with this nation of thieves which I find profoundly disgraceful.

Successive Liberal and PC federal governments (and NDP governments at the provincial level) adhere to only one tenet: SPEND MORE THAN YOU EARN and to hell with the people. The PCs, Liberals, NDP and Greens have their blinkers on when it comes to government spending. The items you mentioned that you hope to bring about are meaningless to me. You’re going to be about as successful to “protect well-paying jobs” as Harper will in creating 1.5 million new jobs! The private sector does NOT need government protection and the only jobs governments create are useless bureaucracies. It is the private sector that creates jobs but instead of leaving us alone you bombard us with stifling laws and regulations. I don’t know of one senior who is impoverished. I don’t know how you are going to improve access to health care when such access is readily available. The one saving grace in your platform is that you will bring home all our troops and equipment from every war zone and concentrate on the defence of our nation.

WAKE UP CANADA! By Arthur Topham July 21, 2014

I do not see anywhere in your party’s platform or, for that matter, in the platform of the other parties that you would begin the process of finding out from the people what may or may not be a workable system of proportional representation and all of you have resisted any attempt to bring in RECALL, CITIZEN INITIATIVE AND REFERENDA legislation. It seems you are happy with the status quo. Well I’m not. Our municipalities continue to dump raw sewage into our environment and we lack water purification plants. But all of you have not even given a thought to these important subjects. Now Montreal wants to dump some 2 billion litres of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence while at the same bloody time governments are spending tax dollars to further bilingualism and multiculturalism which has wasted billions over the years and caused disunity of our people.

The PCs have increased our national debt to about $615 billion and it is rising because there is no end to wasteful spending. Harper continues to subsidize business and industry, especially in Ontario and Quebec, much to my chagrin and the rest of you are hell-bent to tax and spend with no end in sight. Instead of going after the polluters in our country, you want to impose a bloody carbon tax on emissions wrongly believing that somehow our environment will be cleansed!

I can see it in all of your eyes that all you want is POWER over the people and to retain it at all costs. Once you are elected there is no way that we can remove you for negligent, criminal activities or incompetence. While the ordinary working Joe and Mary has to work for 30 to 40 years to obtain a pension from their employer (if one is available) you people collect a sizeable pension and severance package only after 6 years in office. Thems nice pickins!

Violent crimes are on the increase but at no time did I hear you say that you would bring back the death penalty for murder. And these violent crimes will exascerbate because the criminals know that there is virtually no punishment in the end. You have given the criminals more rights than their victims and for that you ought to be ashamed!

In 1966 I obtained my flying license and at that time, on a scale of 10, I was about a 9 as a CANADIAN CITIZEN and would defend my nation against all invaders if called upon to do so. I am sad to report that even though I will defend Canada I’m about a 1 when it comes to FEELING AND BEING CANADIAN even though I was born, raised and bred here in Alberta. There was a time not too long ago when democracy in Canada meant that the will of the majority prevailed. Today we have dictatorship by the unrestrained demands of the minorities! Our nation is so divided over language, culture and religion that I see nothing at the end of the tunnel that even remotely resemble unity en mer sa ventre mer.

Re: Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

Herewith my letter to Brad Lavigne with an accompanying note to an RCAF veteran and Foreign Service colleague.  Both of us were prepared to give our lives in WWII to preserve our freedom and both are extremely disappointed with the abandonment of the high standard of politics in Canada, once prevailing, to the lobby-driven, unprincipled, self-serving older parties of today who have deprived us of our rights, notably the right to Freedom of Expression.  We saw the NDP as an opportunity to restore the traditional values but now realize that the Party is also in the grip of the Enemy Within, as evidenced by the shameless betrayal of the worthy, principled Morgan Wheeldon for valid criticism of Israel, the war-mongering apartheid state and world crime centre.  

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 5.41.55 PM

This was a serious error in judgement by the NDP, made worse by scrupulous avoidance of attacking Harper where he is most vulnerable, namely on his embarrassing “love affair” and traitorous alliance with the Jewish state.  The PM’s suspicious adulation of Israel has damaged our image, economy and security, to say nothing of our self-respect. just as its emulation by the NDP will have damaged the credibility of the Party among millions of otherwise well-disposed voters who seek genuine change, not “Harper with a beard”.

HP – It would be interesting to learn how Brad Lavigne (aka Levine?) suddenly appeared on the scene and seems to have taken over, judging by his ability to fire the innocent and effective campaigner Morgan Wheeldon who could have been a valuable asset to the Party, even a prospective leader.  Mulcair could have intervened on Morgan’s behalf but apparently condoned the unjust firing. He could have used the criticism of Morgan to great advantage by condemning Conservative smear tactics and ridiculing Harper’s love affair with Israel and the Rabbis, but did not do so, a silence that casts a shadow on his integrity and by extension that of his Party.  

HomoMulcairusRex

If the NDP also is beholden to the Israeli Lobby, which is not wholly implausible since Jews financed Mulcair’s leadership campaign, then the only independent party left is the Green Party, and who knows how long before they are also compromised?  We should take warning from  the Americans’ experience – they have it even worse, with Jews openly running the Government, and practically everything else, for that matter.  IV.

Dear Brad,

Re: Spreading the word on the “path to victory”  (“Forward to 5 friends”)

I share your antipathy to the prospect of continued rule by the Harper Government and was a very strong supporter of the NDP as the only hope to restore honest government to the country.  I offered my advice (mainly to Paul Dewar) on issues which would expose the Conservatives to ridicule, and contempt, or worse.  I was well qualified to do so since as head of policy planning for a major Federal department I had access to documents and to other senior officials who were privy to information not available to the media or Opposition.  I also had first hand knowledge of the Middle East and Libya (among dozens of other markets). 

My research on our Middle East relations intensified after my retirement.  The most significant finding was confirmation of the astonishing extent to which both the Conservative and Liberal Parties have fallen under direct control of the Israeli Lobby.  Israel is a foreign power, apartheid state and World Crime Centre whose warmongering and subversion have caused Canada many tens of billions of dollars in lost earnings.  Harper’s military alliance with the ScheissStat could cost us much more, including Canadian lives, both military and civilian.

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 5.40.16 PM

You can imagine my disillusionment therefore when I learned of the arbitrary firing of dedicated and enthusiastic Morgan Wheeldon, NDP candidate for Kings-Hants, N.S., on the basis of an anonymous and irrelevant complaint of a Conservative sympathizer, that Morgan failed to support Israel!. Conservatives would have applauded the action, although it is doubtful that even Harper, no matter how vexed, would have reacted so crudely and cruelly in the circumstances, knowing the traditional Canadian sympathy for fair play and the underdog.

According to the media you, Brad, were the instigator of this monumental faux pas which, as a Senior Consultant, you would have known would alienate many voters, not least of all thinking Jews who found themselves jeopardized and embarrassed by the demonstration of their inordinate influence, even over the Party whose integrity had always been taken for granted.  Since you personally have shattered that image that was the Party’s most valuable asset, I shall decline to forward any message over your name, lest I contaminate my own.

My advice to you would be to apologize for betraying a loyal comrade, urge his reinstatement and resign.  You should have no difficulty in finding a rewarding post with the grateful Conservative Party.

With kind regards,

Ian

Ian,

This election is about change – and we can’t bring change to Ottawa unless we defeat Stephen Harper.

Here’s why Tom Mulcair is the leader to do it:

In the last election, we won 103 seats and today, Tom Mulcair needs just 35 more to defeat Stephen Harper.

The Liberals are much further behind – they need to win 100 more seats to form government. That is not a realistic path to victory.

Our path is much simpler. Building on our continued strength in Quebec, New Democrats are poised for breakthroughs in Southwestern Ontario, British Columbia, Atlantic Canada, the north, and right across the Prairies.

That’s why Tom is in Southwestern Ontario right now for six rallies in one day. Yes, you read that right – six rallies, one day, all in Conservative battlegrounds.

Check out where we are today – and the blue seats Tom is turning orange:

 

This election is going to be extremely close, one in which every vote counts.

The results of the last election and our current numbers on the ground tell us we can win our target ridings – now I need you to spread the word.

Forward this email to your friends and family – then ask them to commit to vote to defeat Stephen Harper with Tom Mulcair:

NDP purge of pro-Palestine candidates plays into Harper’s hands By Justin Podur

NDP purge of pro-Palestine candidates plays into Harper’s hands

By

Justin Podur

[Editor’s Note: All graphics furnished by RadicalPress.com] 

The Conservative Party is on the hunt, and with the help of the NDP and Liberals, they are cleansing Canadian politics of anyone who might think of Palestinians as human beings.

In the first weeks of the election campaign, two NDP politicians have had to distance themselves from statements about facts that are utterly obvious to anyone who knows Israel/Palestine, one nominated candidate has had to resign, and many more NDP members have been blocked by the party from seeking nominations to run for office.

Quebec NDP candidate Hans Marotte expressed past support for the first Palestinian intifada, a mass movement against Israel’s occupation to which Israel responded with the “broken bones” policy of violent repression. When the Conservatives dug up his comments, Marotte said it was proof they couldn’t find anything more recent. He didn’t recant, but he was effectively silenced.

Ontario NDP candidate Matthew Rowlinson had to issue a statement apologizing for signing an “incendiary and inaccurate” letter that included the documented and provable claim that ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is ongoing in Jerusalem. The “inaccurate” part of the letter said that Israel seeks a Jerusalem free of Palestinians. As for “incendiary,” we would do better to look at some of the weapons Israel deploys against Palestinians — more on that to come.

The tortured language of this reply to disgruntled supporters is a consequence of muddled thinking.
Screen Shot 2014-07-28 at 11.06.52 AM copy

Then there are those who have been dumped by the party. Nova Scotia NDP candidate Morgan Wheeldon had to resign for calling Israel’s 2014 attack on Gaza, which killed more than 2,200 people including more than 500 children, a war crime. NDP member Syed Hyder Ali, who had wanted to run in Edmonton, was told to withdraw his name — because he also said that Israel was guilty of war crimes. Jerry Natanine of Nunavut, the mayor of Clyde River, was tossed because, in his words, “I often side with the Palestinians because of all the hardship they are facing and because nothing is being re-built over there.”

Out of date, out of touch

Those who wrote to the party about Morgan Wheeldon’s forced resignation were treated to an incredibly out-of-date, out-of-touch email response, in which Wheeldon was accused of “minimiz[ing] the horror of violence targeting civilians,” which is “unacceptable and contrary to NDP policy, which condemns terrorism.” The party reply also repeats that the NDP supports “a two-state solution that would see Palestinians and Israelis living side by side in independent states.”

The tortured language of this reply to disgruntled supporters is a consequence of muddled thinking. In 2014, it was very clear that the monstrously outmatched Palestinian fighters were focused on military targets. Of 72 Israeli casualties, 66 were soldiers. The “horror of violence targeting civilians” was experienced mainly by Palestinians. Is the NDP saying that what Israel is doing to Palestinian civilians can be justified by “terrorism,” which presumably refers to the use of rockets by Palestinians (and not the use of heavy artillery and bombs by Israel)?

He should be clear that these circumstances include the high-tech slaughter of children.

NDP policy is at least a decade out of date. No one in Israel is interested in a two-state solution or a peace process. Israel took a decision just over a decade ago to “freeze” the peace process. Since then, Israel’s war against the Palestinians has continuously expanded, with attacks on Gaza’s trapped, defenceless population in 2006, 2008-2009, 2012, and 2014.

To be fair, Wheeldon’s Facebook posts, which mentioned the bombings of buses by Hamas, were also a decade out of date. The last bus bombing by Hamas was around 2005, and in the ten years since, the organization — labeled “terrorist” by all parties in Canada — has focused increasingly on confronting the vastly more powerful Israeli military, while that military has focused its incredible firepower on Palestinian civilians. It may also be worth mentioning that Hamas has been fighting against ISIS in Gaza, and has lost lives doing so, while there is de facto collaboration between Israel and al-Qaeda in Syria, as Asa Winstanley and others have reported.

Infanticide

The NDP’s response reveals that it does not understand Israel/Palestine today. How might the NDP go about gaining such an understanding?

There is Amnesty International and Forensic Architecture’s Gaza Platform, which has data on every bomb and shell that Israel launched into Gaza in its 2014 attack. It reveals a pattern of attack that is hard to explain in any way except as the targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure. It was built as an accountability tool, in the hopes that justice will eventually be done, and that those responsible for the deaths of thousands of civilians, the destruction of thousands of homes, and the deliberate targeting of hospitals, schools, medical personnel, and UN facilities will face some kind of legal consequences.

Don'tKilltheChildren copy 8

There are statistics, like the fact that infant mortality in Gaza has risen for the first time in 50 years, thanks to Israel’s siege on the territory it has attacked three times in the past six years. Or the fact that life expectancy for Palestinians is 10 years shorter than for Israelis. Or the fact that Israel decided almost a decade ago, explicitly, to limit the number of calories available to people in Gaza — to “put them on a diet.”

Only one side, the Israeli side, controls every detail of every Palestinian life in Gaza and the West Bank.

There is Mads Gilbert’s new book, Night in Gaza, in which the Norwegian doctor who has spent many years visiting Gaza describes the 2014 attack as the worst he’s seen. The book shows pictures of the heroic medics and doctors who try to save lives and treat injuries as Israel tests new kinds of shrapnel on Gaza’s children. Gilbert describes what he saw as “infanticide.” He notes that, with a median age of 18, more than half of Gaza’s 1.5 million people are children. Those children are not allowed to leave — they are sealed in behind a wall on three sides and a navy patrolling the sea on the other. Israel has imprisoned them. Gaza, notes Gilbert, is not just a prison, but a child prison.

When Mulcair says, as he did in 2008, that he is “an ardent supporter of Israel in all situations and circumstances,” he should be clear that these circumstances include the high-tech slaughter of children, the imprisonment of children, the imposition of of caloric intake formulas for children, and increased infant mortality and reduced life expectancy. By a matter of simple logic, these are all things that Thomas Mulcair supports.

Destruction

There is Max Blumenthal’s book, The 51 Day War, with its harrowing tales of Palestinians people herded by Israeli soldiers at gunpoint into a house and forced to stay there in the house at gunpoint until the house is bombed and dozens of people are killed.

There is also Harvard economist Sara Roy’s article, which includes a quote summarizing Israel’s approach to Gaza: “No development, no prosperity, no humanitarian crisis.”

Then there is the Israeli side, for which the required reading is Breaking the Silence’s report, “This is How We Fought in Gaza.” It includes testimonies from Israeli soldiers about what they did in Gaza last year. Every single one of them — and there are 111 — is shocking in some way. Choose a few at random. Maybe read about the soldiers’ songs, like “Palestinians only sing the chorus as they have no verses (houses) left” (testimony 1). Or read about the targeting protocols, about how decisions to fire on buildings were made (testimony 51):

“Throughout the entire operation there was a sort of building far away near the coastline… it wasn’t a threat to us, it had nothing to do with anybody, it wasn’t part of the operation… but that building was painted orange, and that orange drove my eyes crazy the entire time. I’m the tank gunner, I control all the weapons systems … So I told my platoon commander ‘I want to fire at that orange house’, and he told me: ‘Cool, whatever you feel like’, and we fired.”

It is playing the right’s game, which it can’t win.

After a few testimonies, readers can take a break and watch a video of Israeli protesters chanting another song outside the hospital of a Palestinian hunger striker: “Why is there no studying in Gaza? Because they have no children left!” Spend some time looking at some terrifying tweets from last year by teenagers taking selfies with captions including “Death to the Arabs.”

Remember that Israeli newspapers are running columns with headlines like “When Genocide is Permissible,” and Israeli politicians call Palestinian children “little snakes.” And anyone thinking that indifference to civilian lives or hateful, racist, and genocidal beliefs are common to both sides might remember that only one side, the Israeli side, controls every detail of every Palestinian life in Gaza and the West Bank, from where they can and can’t go to their very caloric intake.

Playing the right’s game

Israel is heading in an ever-more genocidal direction towards the Palestinians. Support for this move is only possible for those who give up any pretence of anti-racism, universal human rights, anti-militarism, and democracy. It is only possible, in other words, on the right side of the political spectrum.

1_boycott-israel-campaign_2006_50_70_amer-shomali-basel-nasr1 copy 2

On the other side of the spectrum, the pro-Palestine movement and Palestinian civil society are working on a rights-based, not a solutions-based, framework, and are working towards boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Many Canadian politicians have heard of the BDS movement, at least for long enough to denounce it. Mulcair, for example, has said that he finds BDS “grossly unacceptable,” as one might expect of someone who ardently supports Israel in every situation and circumstance.

If the progressive position supporting BDS is grossly unacceptable, perhaps Mulcair might find more acceptable Hamas’s conditions for a 10-year truce with Israel: an end to the siege of Gaza and the opening of a seaport, an airport, and the land crossing into Egypt. This is actually far short of the NDP’s quaint espousal of a two-state solution, since the occupation would continue. But all the same, for the NDP to call for the opening of Gaza and the freeing of 750,000 children from prison in today’s context would be politically significant indeed. It won’t happen for exactly that reason.

These may be the evil political calculations that have to be made in order to succeed electorally. But here is something to consider. If the NDP purges the progressive, pro-Palestine voices from its party out of fear of supporters of Israel’s ever-escalating violence against the Palestinians, it is playing the right’s game, which it can’t win. Israel’s national politics, which has drifted so far to the right that to call someone a leftist is an insult (and “punch a lefty, save the homeland” and “good night, left side” are slogans chanted at pro-war demonstrations), could teach the NDP something about how this works. There, too, left and liberal parties spent the past few elections trying to pander to centre-right sentiment, and have basically disappeared as a political force.

The NDP’s purge of pro-Palestine candidates can only help Stephen Harper, who doesn’t talk nonsense about a two-state solution but simply and openly supports whatever Israel wants and is doing. Those who want that will vote for Harper, not the NDP.

Meanwhile, if voters want to cast their ballot this October for a major Canadian party that believes that Palestinians are human beings too, they can’t.

New Zionist Party of Canada NZP (formerly known as the NDP) turfs another prospective candidate for Israel comment By Ryan Tumilty, MetroNews

Edmonton NDP hopeful to protest after being disqualified by Israel comments

Syed Hyder Ali said he was only repeating what Amnesty International has said about the country’s invasion of Gaza in 2014.

A prospective NDP candidate, who was turned down by the party for his views on Israel, is promising to protest at the party’s upcoming nomination meeting.

Syed Hyder Ali had hoped to run for the party in Edmonton Wetaskiwin, but after a long period of silence the party asked him to withdraw his name earlier this month. He said he refused and when he pushed to find out why the party didn’t want him they pointed to Facebook posts where he said the state of Israel was guilty of war crimes.

Ali said he was only repeating what Amnesty International has said about the country’s invasion of Gaza in 2014.

“These comments are not because I am a Muslim. They are because I am a human rights activist,” said Ali.

On his Facebook page he accused the party of being blind on the issue.

“NDP has been hijacked by pro-Israel mafia. It was New Democratic Party under leadership of Jack Layton, now it has become Non Democratic Party under leadership of Thomas Mulcair.”

He said he has been an ardent party supporter for years and doesn’t believe his views on one issue should prevent him from running.

“I believe in social democracy. I believe in the leadership of Jack Layton. I am in this party because of Jack Layton,” he said.

He is promising that supporters will protest the party’s nomination meeting in Leduc on Aug. 17.

He said Canada should be open to criticizing both sides of the conflict and not just one.

“Be just. Be neutral. Be democratic.”

He said he is well aware the Conservative campaign would have used his Facebook posts against him if he had been nominated as the candidate, but other parties dig into every candidate’s past to criticize them.

“Are they also going to throw Tom Mulcair out of a nomination race?”

No Room For Anti-Israeli Comment In Canadian Politics by Hadani Ditmars

No Room For Anti-Israeli Comment In Canadian Politics

“When Harper needled him, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair responded that ‘Israel has no better friend than the NDP.’”

It would seem the height of Orwellian doublespeak to eliminate a political candidate for calling a war crime a war crime. And all the more so if you’re a leading member of Canada’s New Democratic Party.

And yet that’s exactly what happened this week when Nova Scotian Morgan Wheeldon, an NDP candidate for the riding of Kings-Hants, was forced to step down when a Conservative troll found a statement on his Facebook page from 2014 calling Israel’s bombardment of Gaza a “war crime.”

I suppose that party brass doesn’t read much Orwell, or UN reports on actual Israeli war crimes in Gaza – but perhaps it should become required reading. Especially if you set yourself up as the main ‘progressive’ opponent to the ruling Conservative Party, whose leader Stephen Harper carries on what is surely the creepiest political ‘bromance’ with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu bar none.

And yet in last week’s televised leaders debates it was clear that while the two parties differ on the controversial Harper backed C-51 ‘anti-terror legislation’ the NDP and the Conservatives were duking it out for the pro-Israel vote. When Harper needled him, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair responded that “Israel has no better friend than the NDP.” It seems he was correct.

The damning out-of-context statement on Wheeldon’s Facebook page in the wake of Israel’s 2014 bombing of Gaza that killed over 2,200 Palestinians was this:

“One could argue that Israel’s intention was always to ethnically cleanse the region — there are direct quotations proving this to be the case. Guess we just sweep that under the rug. A minority of Palestinians are bombing buses in response to what appears to be a calculated effort to commit a war crime.”

While the UN itself has accused Israel of war crimes during ‘Operation Protective Edge’, the NDP cried foul, stating: “Our position on the conflict in the Middle East is clear, as Tom Mulcair expressed clearly in the debate. Mr. Wheeldon’s comments are not in line with that policy and he is no longer our candidate.”

So that’s that then. Call a war crime a war crime on your personal Facebook page, and there’s no room for you in Canada’s ‘progressive’ party.

What has happened to Canada, and for that matter to the NDP? Their take-no-prisoners approach to criticism of Israeli actions in Gaza and the West Bank has recent precedents, and they all lead back to Thomas Mulcair.

In 2008, Mulcair led a caucus revolt against then leader Jack Layton when he criticized the Harper government’s decision not to participate in the United Nations Conference on Racism on the grounds that its mention of certain Israeli violations of international law was ‘anti-Semitic’.

Mulcair successfully muzzled NDP criticism of the January 2009 Israeli bombardment of Gaza, which killed 1,400 civilians, as well as the subsequent Israeli attack on the Gaza Flotilla, which killed nine.

And in 2010, Mulcair joined forces with the Conservatives and the Liberals in calling for the ouster of long time MP Libby Davies, (who has since resigned from politics) as NDP House Leader after her comments to a journalist that occupation of Palestine had begun in 1948.

While the NDP’s position is more than apparent to keen observers (as author Yves Engler notes, even NDP pioneer Tommy Douglas was an ardent Zionist), it’s odd that Israel has suddenly become an election issue in Canada in the midst of recessionary times.
Is freedom of speech completely dead in Canada? Can no one criticize Israeli war crimes without fear of repercussions?

It would seem that only Elizabeth May, leader of the tiny but scrappy Green Party, is free to speak her mind on foreign policy issues. Her candid comments have helped the Green Party usurp the NDP’s former role of ‘unofficial opposition’ to the ruling Conservatives. And indeed, after Paul Manly was barred from running for the NDP on the grounds that his comments about Israel incarcerating his aging father John Manly (captured with other crew members of a ship bearing aid to besieged Gaza) were of concern to the party executive, he joined the Green Party.

The general mood of muzzling any dissent against Israel would seem at odds with Canada’s allies. Comparing the situation here to say that of the UK – where Labour MP’s were asked to vote in favor of a Palestinian state, the prime minister was forced (via growing public opposition) to resign as patron of the Jewish National Fund and Senior Foreign Office Minister Baroness Sayeeda Warsi chose to resign over the government’s policy on Gaza – makes Canada look backward at best.

In an international context, it would now appear that Canada has the least control of any G7 country over its own foreign policy. Perhaps even less than in the US where tax dollars go more directly to maintaining the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Bizarrely, no matter who wins the upcoming election, Canada’s Middle East policy now seems to be firmly based on Likudist agendas.

Is NDP Thomas Mulcair a Shabbas Goy/Trojan Horse working for Israel? Ian V. Macdonald Letter to National Zionist Post

Let2NatPostIanVM

WAKEUPCANADA!

HP – for a long time I sensed that Mulcair was a Shabbas Goy/Trojan Horse and warned the NDP that, if so, he would subtly undermine the integrity, independence, and election prospects of the Party, but unfortunately. to no avail. I didn’t expect he would out himself as an Israeli sychophant before the election but I suppose he simply followed his sensitive paymasters’ instructions (probably urged on by his wife, rumored to be a Jewess) to nip even the slightest sign of “anti-Semitism” in the bud . Penalizing a good Christian Canadian for condemning Israel – already condemned by the United Nations for her countless atrocities and mega-criminality more than any other country – should be sufficient grounds to disqualify the offender from any public office in Canada, let alone a leadership position. Mulcair would do himself, his Party and his country a favour if he apologized to the righteous Morgan Wheeldon, and resigned. IV

Dear Sir,

“Stephen Harper with a beard”

Mr Mulcair, who has been promising “change”, has damaged his credibility perhaps beyond recall, by allowing policy advisor Brad Levine to fire Morgan Wheeldon, one of the NDP’s most loyal and enthusiastic candidates, whose loyalty to Israel, had become suspect.

By condoning this shameless racist act, Mr Mulcair may well have ingratiated himself with the Jewish paymasters of his leadership campaign, but he will have offended and alienated, and probably lost, all the fair minded voters who have been appalled by Prime Minister Harper’s costly, demeaning love affair with the criminal apartheid state that has destroyed Canada’s formerly sterling image in international affairs and jeopardized our security.

Since Morgan Wheeldon, is a worthy citizen, has waged an effective campaign, and time is running out, the only course now for Mr Mulcair is to withdraw the NDP from Kings-Hants and encourage Mr Wheeldon to run as an Independent. Assuming both are elected, he should then seek his former candidate’s cooperation and forgiveness. Unfortunately, now that Mulcair has shown his true colours as an Israel-Firster, the reconciliation would not likely take place while serving within the ranks of the governing party.

As ever,

Brainwashing: 911 & the Holohoax by Alfred Schaefer (Video)

911BrainwashingHoloHdr
9/11 Brainwashing part 1
9/11 Brainwashing part 2
ATSmlEdScreenshot
Editor’s Note: Brainwashing: 9/11 & the Holohoax – a two part video by German producer Alfred Schaefer – is, without a doubt, one of the best visual productions to date outlining the massive deceptions on the part of the Zionist Jew criminal cartel now in control of the majority of Western civilization. Via its powerful media control, its control of western political leaders, and the power of its purse to wreak havoc across the globe using whatever ruthless tactics it so desires in order to create chaos, confusion and fear in the minds and hearts of the common people, these two videos give the viewer a comprehensive overview of just how the masses have been brainwashed over the past seventy years.
Schaefer’s 2-part video is amazingly well done and packed full with extensive footage relating to 9/11 and to the evidence surrounding the Holohoax that was revealed to the world during the famous Ernst Zundel trial in Canada throughout the 1980’s and ’90’s.
Brainwashing: 9/11 & the Holohoax reveals the endless deceptions, the blatant lies of the Zionist Jew media and those who labour to maintain the deception surrounding both these two world-changing events – the false claims of 6 Million Jews purported to have been gassed and “holocausted” in ovens during WW2 and the subsequent attack upon the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001.
Using footage related to the 9/11 false flag where those complicit attempt to divert attention from the skeptical public’s questioning by equating them with “Holocaust deniers” Schaefer is then able to show viewers the striking similarities between these two Zionist false flags and clearly outline why 1+1=2 and not 3.
These videos illuminate with increasing intensity the dark shroud of lies that the Zionist criminal cartel continually uses to cover up their own diabolic actions and one cannot watch them without coming away feeling that all which Schaefer has presented as further evidence of these two massive cover-ups makes perfect sense in light events that have transpired since 1945.
Viewers are urged to pass these videos on to friends and those who are still in doubt about both these cataclysmic events that are driving the world further and further to the brink of global disaster.

Kourosh Ziabari Interview with Canadian Professor Denis Rancourt – Fars News Agency

KouroshInterviewRancourtHdr

RPEdNew400 copy

Editor’s Note: The following interview with Professor Rancourt is undoubtedly one of the finest contributions toward a greater understanding of how the West has been slowly taken over by the Zionist agenda. Whether we wish to view it (as Professor Rancourt appears to), as the American Empire using Israel for its own greater hegemonic agenda or whether we tend to see it as World Jewry’s take-over of the American government via stealth in order to commandeer its resources and exploit them for Zionism’s global conquest, Rancourt’s analysis of how this process has unfolded to the ongoing detriment of the Palestinian people is superlative.
 
The interview also succinctly explains the depth and degree of collusion which the various Zionist forces and their sycophants here in Canada went to in order to illegally remove Professor Rancourt from his academic position at the University of Ottawa and then to further exacerbate his unjust treatment by pursuing him with a defamation suit that basically bankrupt the man. Such extremely vexatious acts on the part of Allan Rock and the University of Ottawa, aided and abetted by Canada’s Zionist-controlled media, border on sadism and are a vivid reminder of just how cruel and criminal the Zionist cartel can be when it comes to protecting its own racket of death and destruction at any cost should Canadians have the audacity to exhibit their lawful constitutional right to freedom of expression. In this case Professor Rancourt’s only “crime” was to question the right of Israel’s ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people.
 
I suppose Denis Rancourt might be expected to consider himself lucky that he wasn’t also slapped with a sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada “Hate Propaganda” charge on top of all the other woes he’s been subjected to by the Zionist-controlled judiciary here in Canada. I’m sure that they would love to send him to jail for a couple of years just as they are trying to do to me in order to reinforce their intimidation and threats to all of Canada’s academia never to question their authority or their evil designs.
 
Professor Rancourt has taken a courageous stand and like myself he needs your help in order to defend himself against all of these spurious charges that have resulted from his expressing his opinions on matters relevant to Canada’s democratic principles.

KouroshPortrait copy 2

Kourosh Ziabari – Fars News Agency: A Canadian scholar and academic, who was fired from the university where he was teaching because of his pro-Palestinian viewpoints, believes the US government is funding and supporting Israel for its continued bloodletting in the Middle East.

According to Prof. Denis Rancourt, Israel’s plan in the Middle East is ethnic cleansing and the total obliteration of Palestine and its citizens in order to realize a colonial, imperial agenda backed by the US military, economic and finance empire.

“Israel’s program is to eradicate or neutralize all Palestinians who make claim to a home in Palestine. This is exactly what Israel has been doing since before its artificial creation,” said Prof. Rancourt in an exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.

“Israel’s program is planned incremental dispossession and an ongoing attempted genocide. This has been repeatedly and explicitly expressed by the Zionist architects and executioners,” he noted.

Prof. Denis Rancourt has also praised the resistance movement in the Gaza Strip for its steadfastness against the Israeli aggression during the past two months, maintaining that it was awe-inspiring that Hamas could kill some 70 invading Israeli soldiers.

Denis Rancourt is a former professor of physics at the University of Ottawa. In the fall of 2008, he was removed from all teaching duties under the pretext that he had granted A+ grades to 23 students in one course during the winter 2008 semester; however, it’s quite clear to everybody that his outspoken criticism of Israel and his pro-Palestinian activism had triggered his dismissal from the university. Prof. Rancourt’s classes were always attended by tens of students and he was considered as one of the popular university professors at the Faculty of Science.

Rancourt has published more than 100 academic papers. He was a member of Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Physics and the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre. He is the author of the book “Hierarchy and Free Expression in the Fight Against Racism.”

During the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip that just ended on August 26 following the victory of Hamas and the declaration of ceasefire between the Israeli regime and the resistance movement, FNA did an interview with Prof. Denis Rancourt on the influence of the Israeli lobby over the media, politicians and universities in the West, the history of Israel-Canada relations and the international reactions to the recent Israeli war on Gaza. The following is the text of this in-depth interview.

Q: What’s your viewpoint regarding the influence of the Israeli lobby on the universities and academic unions in the West, especially in the North America? The case of your dismissal from your position as a professor at the University of Ottawa was simply one of numerous instances showing that the Israeli lobby can easily manipulate the university officials in the West into making illegal decisions and expelling the disobedient academicians, just like the Prof. Steven Salaita who has been recently fired from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for his comments criticizing the Israeli massacre in the Gaza Strip. How has Israel gained such an influence over the academic institutions in the West?

A: The Israel Lobby has the role of chief-whip for the US military-economic-finance empire; Empire, for short. That is, the Lobby ensures doctrinal discipline among Western, that is, US-aligned politicians, intellectuals, and the media, regarding the Empire’s Middle East policy. I mean “intellectual” in the broad sense of any professional who has influence, and “media” in the broad sense of anyone who communicates to others.

The Empire’s main geopolitical focus presently is the Middle East, where the Empire is dedicated to actively and continuously prevent liberation and coalescence of Arab nations, so as to keep control of the territory and the energy resources. To achieve this, the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East is Israel, which is charged with continual war and sabotage against all Middle Eastern entities that would vie for independence from the Empire.

Thus, the Empire, via Israel, is embarked on a vicious and murderous project without an end in the Middle East, and this unsavory project must be sold to the Empire’s home populations, including both managers and ordinary citizens. That is the role of the Israel Lobby; to sell Israel and the continuous and deliberate carnage as acceptable and unavoidable.

That is why the Israel Lobby is actively engaged is creating Islamophobia, in exaggerating anti-Semitism, in constructing Nazi-holocaust remembrance, in suppressing academic freedom, in suppressing freedom of the press, in “finding” and pursuing alleged “terrorists”, in developing anti-speech [or] “anti-hate” laws, in promoting cultural ties with Israel, in attacking Muslim associations, and so on.

As such, the work of the Israel Lobby includes hundreds of ongoing campaigns to intimidate, discipline, fire, and vilify academics who dare to be critical of Israel or of US Middle East policy. The list of shut-out and targeted academics is a long one and includes the well-known cases of Joel Kovel, Ward Churchill, Norman Finkelstein, James Petras, Terri Ginsberg, William Robinson, David F. Noble, Steven Salaita, Iymen Chehade, and many others. The more an academic is threatening to the Lobby, the more aggressively that academic is attacked.

My own case is also an example. I was a tenured Full Professor of physics at the University of Ottawa in Canada’s capital city. I am an internationally recognized researcher and I taught in both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts. I was publicly critical of the university president’s paid trip to Israel. I invited Palestinian speakers into my classrooms to talk about Gaza, and geopolitical analysts who were critical of Israel. These moves led to condemnation of me in the Zionist mainstream media, and to discipline, which was overturned. In 2008, a new university president – Allan Rock – who is a staunch and unconditional supporter of Israel and who had been Canada’s Zionist ambassador to the UN, became immediately motivated to fire me, tenure or not, and irrespective of my popular courses and my large science research funding.

A.RockMug

With the help of an entire team using specially-hired union-busting lawyers, after contriving for years including intensive covert surveillance of me using a hired-student spy to monitor my every spoken and written word and my every activity on campus and at other university campuses, the university finally settled on the false pretext for dismissal of alleging that I had improperly assigned high grades to all 23 students in an advanced physics course. They needed a “clean” pretext that they hoped would be supported by public opinion and that would not bring out all of their dirt. When public opinion and some mainstream media sided with me instead, a high-profile Zionist columnist at the New York Times suddenly wrote not-one but two articles to discredit me, and was invited to Canada to falsely defame me, regarding my teaching, on a trend-setting Canadian TV talk show whose producers are Zionists.

Even after I was fired, as I continued to be publicly critical of the institution, the university funded a large defamation lawsuit against me which, after almost four years, has entirely washed-out my personal savings, and over which I was ordered to pay a total of legal costs and damages in excess of one million dollars, that I can never pay. I am presently struggling to generate the funds to pay the costs of court-transcripts for the appeal that has been filed. My funding campaign is endorsed by the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, which also has a campaign that condemns the university’s unlimited funding of the lawsuit against me using public money.

Although the university had many and mixed unstated and illegitimate reasons for wanting to fire me – such as my defiance and outspokenness in several areas, my popular courses and public events, and my support of student and community activism, I have no doubt that I was fired because the new Zionist university president Allan Rock – former Ambassador to the UN, and former Canadian federal government minister – wanted me out and silenced at any cost, and knew that he could count on support from the Zionist establishment. Under cross-examination, the dean testified that the pre-dismissal lockout of my graduate students and I from our laboratory was directed from above by Allan Rock. This president knew my firing would be seen as a good deed by the powerful Zionist establishment that he is part of. Years before I was ultimately fired, it had already been pronounced in the media that my firing was necessary and was desirable because of the “anti-Semitic” nature of my courses, to the great dismay and protests of many of my students.

After I was escorted off campus in handcuffs by police and charged with “trespassing” while I was still a tenured professor, and since my firing in 2009, Allan Rock has been systematically transforming the University of Ottawa into an institutional instrument at the service of Canada’s accelerating “globalist” agenda, and at the service of legitimizing Israel’s role in that agenda — rather than actually prioritizing the learning environment for students in Ottawa, an environment that is in dire need of an overhaul.

Allan Rock needed me out of the way. The Empire needs critics of the Empire out of the way. And the Israel Lobby needs anyone who threatens the acceptance of Israel’s crimes out of the way.

Q: Why has the criticism of Israel become so costly in the West? Why are the academicians, media personalities and other public figures who dare to question the policies and practices of Israel being immediately vilified and denigrated as anti-Semitist? Moreover, why don’t the mainstream media in the West ever give coverage to the viewpoints critical of Israel or exposing its violations of international law?

A: The mainstream media is a highly perfected arm of the Empire’s propaganda apparatus, as are Hollywood, the music industry, video games, and so on. The barely-maintained illusions of freedom of the press and of artistic freedom only make the propaganda more effective.

The propaganda apparatus is an integral part of the Empire’s military structure. The Israel Lobby is an added structure for direct and forceful control of politicians and intellectuals concerning the role of Israel as the Empire’s main thug in the Middle East.

The Empire’s Israel-based violent control in the Middle East, in turn, gives control over energy and wealth, via both the energy itself and energy transportation routes, and helps to ensure that the US-dollar remains the petro-dollar and, thus, the World currency, which the US prints at will.

In this way, the Empire both maintains its main instrument of global exploitation, namely finance-extortion based on the US-dollar and enforced with military might, and suppresses the development of its main competitors by strategically controlling the energy market via sanctions, pricing, and directed profits. That is the Empire’s working theory, which is realistically achievable thanks to absolute military dominance.

Within this scheme, the Israel Lobby at home is in a symbiotic relation with the Empire. The two are inseparable as long as the Empire’s main geopolitical focus is the Middle East, and as long as the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East is Israel. This is why one finds a strong and visible Israel Lobby satellite in every Western nation that is aligned with the Empire: Canada, France, Australia, and so on.

The two elements that give the Israel Lobby its raison d’etre – namely, the Empire’s main geopolitical focus on the Middle East, and Israel as the Empire’s main policy in the Middle East – are not necessarily good for the Empire. But the Israel Lobby has gotten too powerful; to the point of being able to largely dictate the Empire’s geopolitical priorities, and the Empire’s goals.

Thus, the Israel Lobby has to a large extent overrun the US democracy. It is not presently possible for US politicians to objectively and freely discuss Israel’s role and the Empire’s foreign policy. Virtually no US politician has the backbone to do so. US critics of Israel who are sufficiently threatening are crushed, and the US establishment fully participates in these mobbings.

When the stakes are so high, it is impossible for the Israel Lobby to relax its aggressive stance against all ideological threats. The Lobby considers its intimidation campaigns to be necessary for its own survival. It uses bribery, extortion, and propaganda at every level to discipline all who need to be reminded of which peoples most need to be killed on the planet.

Q: Canada has usually been one of the major advocates and supporters of the Tel Aviv regime since its establishment in 1948, either financially, politically or militarily and has always justified its racist policies in the Occupied Territories publicly. Somewhere in a 2011 article, you noted that Canada does not have much significant trade ties with Israel, and is a net exporter of oil and gas itself. So, why do you think the Canadian politicians continue to offer their “unwavering support” to Israel and rationalize its atrocities against the besieged people of Gaza? Why does Canada always lobby to dissuade world countries from voting against Israel in the UN resolutions? In what ways does Canada benefit from backing Israel?

A: Interestingly, it was Allan Rock – the same man who engineered my firing from the University of Ottawa – who, in 2004, under Paul Martin’s Liberal government and as Canada’s Ambassador to the UN, changed Canada’s longstanding position on Israel from abstaining on human rights resolutions for Palestine to being one of the few countries in the World that vote with the US and Israel against UN human rights resolutions for Palestine.

The complete selling of Canada to the US started prior to Martin, notably at the hands of Conservative Prime Minister Brian “free trade” Mulroney who thereby destroyed the Conservative party for more than a decade. Martin continued the job of selling Canada. Paul Martin engineered a takeover of the Liberal Party of Canada from the last Prime Minister Jean Chrétien who was moderately independent, or wanted to appear to be, and Martin proceeded to wreck that party into oblivion, with the help of other Zionists such as Rock and Harvard-based import Michael Ignatieff who also wrote academic arguments to legitimize torture “in an age of terror”, and others. At present, all three major parties [of] Conservative, NDP, and Liberal are led by ultra-Zionists, which is no accident. Harper, in particular, vehemently demonizes Iran, in what can only be understood as a criminally irresponsible call for a war of aggression, in line with a well-known Israeli desire.

The reason that Canada gives unconditional diplomatic support to Israel is the same as with all states aligned with the Empire. There is no choice on that issue because Israel is a major component of the Empire’s World-domination apparatus. The Israel Lobby is existentially committed to keeping things that way. The widespread tolerance and political adoration of the anti-democratic Israel Lobby in the US suggests that it is now not unreasonable to entertain an analysis of the Empire as a US-Israel Empire, as though the elite-bosses that run the global military-finance exploitation enterprise had effectively merged across US-Israel lines.

The other main Western states vie to align themselves in order to be on the receiving side of the Empire’s global exploitation project. This alignment is the most disgusting and vicious enactment of global racism in human history – largely surpassing its immediate predecessor that was the British Empire – that directly targets indigenous populations in the developing and emerging world, whether or not these populations support resistance movements. In this regard, a color-coded world map of diplomatic stance regarding Israel is identical to a world map of the global exploitation by the states aligned with the Empire.

Canada, in particular, is more than aligned. Canada is truly a vassal state of the US, with virtually complete integration in the political, corporate, security, military, cultural, and intelligentsia spheres. It is not uncommon for high-ranking “Canadian” politicos to have been trained at Harvard. The entertainment and sports enterprises are seamlessly the same, except for Quebec to some degree. This deepening integration has been accompanied by a loss of Canadian nationalism, a dramatically increased Israel Lobby presence, a dumbing down of the provincial education systems, an abandonment of natural-resources ownership, a near-total loss of resistance to foreign corporate ownership, frightening mimicry in the cultural, political, statutory, military, police, etc., fields, and so on.

Years ago, as one personal anecdote, I was shocked to find that the airport security in Ottawa, for an internal flight in Canada, was being managed by a US firm, that the security employees were US citizens, spoke with heavy US accents, and did not speak French – Canada is bilingual, and Ottawa is its capital. I was on stolen Canadian soil being processed by US security personnel. That is now the norm. Canadian citizens have a lot of work to do if they want to effectively oppose US and Israeli crimes against humanity.

Of course the local Canadian establishment needs to benefit from Canada being a vassal state of the Empire. So your question of how does Canada benefit is a fair one. The first answer is that Canada is allowed to share in the plunder practiced by the Empire, to a limited and controlled degree. In addition, Canada is given a share of the Empire’s military economy, in terms of military manufacturing contracts, and is temporarily allowed to have a First World standard of living, even though it must permit its natural resources to be plundered.

Also, Canada is a major producer of oil from tar sands that are relatively expensive to exploit. Wars and imposed sanctions in the Middle East increase the price of oil, which serves the Canadian energy sector well, in terms of political benefits. The price of gas is also increased, which inadvertently serves Russia. Thus, Russia must be sanctioned and cut off from the European market. Enter Ukraine, etc. Energy is geopolitics and Canada, as a major energy producer, “chooses” to be on the side of the big guns.

Q: What do the ordinary Canadian citizens, and the young generation of Canadian people think about Israel and its ongoing campaign of carnage and genocide in the besieged Gaza Strip? Do they sympathize with the major Canadian parties, including the Conservatives, Liberals and the NDP in their unwarranted support for Israel?

A: Political participation in Canada is a farce. By statute – thanks to former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau – all local political candidates must be approved and certified by the party leader. Therefore, unlike in the UK where local party members can choose their representatives and where parliamentary rule actually means something, there is no representative democracy whatsoever in Canada. It does not take a PhD in political science to understand this. The employment and career of each Member of Parliament depends on obeying party discipline, and the party bosses are selected and positioned by powerful private interests predominantly represented by the Israel Lobby.

Ordinary Canadians, young and old, understand that politics does not include them. Consequently, political participation is low. The smaller the citizen’s possible influence, the less [they] participate, logically. In Canada – like in most places where citizens do not feel overly threatened by their governments or by foreign influences or by war – effective political allegiance is hired directly using widespread partisan employment, by the government, the public institutions, the private corporations, the hired lobbies, and the non-government organizations. In addition, superficial popular acceptance of fake agendas is bought via disguised propaganda projected by the “educational” system, the media, and the hired “experts” from all sectors. This works brilliantly because most professional workers are fully indoctrinated into the system.

Among aware Canadians, however, there is great concern about Israel’s crimes in Gaza. This concern and resulting outrage are significant, as is evident from the massive media and public-relations counter campaigns to legitimize Israel’s war crimes.

Canadian civil society is recognizing and organizing against the Israel genocide that continues to unfold. There has been a significant backlash against the public positions of the leaders of the three major parties, and this backlash has caused the NDP in particular to do some damage-control. A Member of Parliament even resigned from the NDP over the issue, which is a first in Canada. Furthermore, in reporting the carnage in Gaza, the mainstream media was feeling the pressure to not completely follow the most absurd dictates of the Israel Lobby regarding media strategy.

The recent public demonstrations in support of Gaza, held in every major Canadian city, were massive, by Canadian standards. The pro-Palestine demonstrations that I attended in Ottawa had hundreds and thousands of participants and were among the largest that I have ever witnessed. More importantly, the demonstrators were from across Canadian society and were profoundly moved and committed, more than I have ever seen for any broad Canadian foreign policy matter. Consequently, the mainstream media was forced to report these demonstrations in a somewhat balanced fashion, under the threat of losing credibility.

Thus, there is a significant enough gap, between the extreme Zionism of the political party leaders and public opinion on Gaza, that it is possible that there could be a large and lasting popular backlash that would change the public political discourse and force the Lobby to be less overt. I more than hope that this backlash will be of formidable magnitude and that it will occur at an accelerated pace, in order to create and recover the dignity of Canadians, to bring Canadians into the World, and to bring maximum support to the Palestinian resistance.

Q: During its more than 50 days of incursion into the Gaza Strip, Israel continually bombed the civilian areas, hospitals, mosques and schools. The deliberate targeting of the civilians is a crime under international law. Why is Israel persistent on violating international law while its leaders know what they’re doing is not humane and defendable? Is it because Israel has been enjoying immunity from accountability thanks to the public diplomatic, political and financial support it receives from the United States?

A: It is criminally and morally disgusting that Israel continued to bomb Gaza during the negotiations for the agreement that led to a halt to further Israeli attacks for an “unlimited period”. It is utterly disgusting that Israel murdered the wife and a daughter and a son of the Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif during negotiations. Israel continued to murder Hamas opponents during negotiations. This is abominable. It is difficult to comprehend this degree of disregard by Israel for basic human decency, not to mention international law. This tells us that Israel never negotiated in good faith, and that the “negotiated” agreement cannot possibly represent any measure of interim justice.

The Palestinian resistance in Gaza is awe-inspiring, having killed some 70 invading soldiers that were part of one of the most technologically advanced militaries in the World, and Gazans having sustained unspeakable civilian death, displacement, and destruction. However, Israel is in fact mainly contained by the global political and popular reactions to its crimes. The US cannot afford to convince the World that it is a genocidal-maniac nation, whether it is or not. This would seriously impair the Empire, domestically, with allies, and in its arenas of exploitation.

This is why the Empire funds and supports Israel for the constant bloodletting in the Middle East, and covertly trains and funds proxy thugs wherever it cannot sell a direct intervention, such as in Syria. Make no mistake, the US runs a global empire, with over 1,000 military bases spread in every corner of the globe, but it cannot be perceived in Western circles as an outright purveyor of ruthless and unlimited terror. Just don’t ask Latin Americans what they know from lived experience.

In this regard, a reality that protects the world from US-Israeli ravages is the fact that, more and more, there are Muslim, Latin American, etc., populations in the US and in the aligned countries, such as the Muslim citizens of the UK, and the Latin Americans in the US. This, in turn, explains the growing government fixations on preventing immigration and systemically targeting profiled refugees for deportation. It also explains the police-state occupation and incarceration in the US of the Black and Hispanic less-integrated social classes.

Basically, all the survival, self-defense, and liberation struggles against and from-within the Empire share a common oppressor. These struggles can greatly benefit from Western middle class allies, and from Western middle class indignation. The elite management class has connections to the professional class, which is largely from the middle class, and so on. In this way, “public opinion”, beyond simply most members of the public having some superficial opinion, can pressure towards rejecting the most egregious abuses of the Empire.

Q: In response to Israel’s deadly military operation against the Gaza Strip, the United States simply said that Israel has a right to defend itself, and a right to exist. Are these rights, including a right to exist, contingent upon the destruction of the entire civilian infrastructure in a coastal territory that has been under siege for some 7 years, and the blowing up of its unarmed citizens? Do the US politicians really think this way or are pretending that they’re not aware of the realities of Gaza on the ground?

A: The “right to exist” and “right to defend itself” postures of Israel are ridiculous sophistries that a child can recognize as such. Israelis have a right to not be displaced arbitrarily without a just process. That process must weigh all the facts related to Israel’s long-term genocidal policies and actions of population cleansing and annexing of territory. It must also respect international law, and respect unrescinded UN resolutions. And, it cannot reward continued violations by Israel of the said UN resolutions regarding territorial lines.

The Israeli spin concocted to justify Israel’s gruesome crimes of war is so insulting to the intellect that in itself it could be considered a crime, a crime of language, if it made any sense to have such a category of crimes. Indeed, if it were advisable to condone the development of a criminal law for “hate speech”, then Israel’s spin, uttered in the context of its massacres in Gaza, should certainly qualify as “hate speech”.

As usual, Israel turns everything on its head. The Israel Lobby seeks “hate speech” laws to be enacted in all the aligned states, to prevent criticism of Israel, as being “anti-Semitic” speech of course. This explicitly exists in France, and persists in Canada, where one elderly Canadian citizen was sent to jail in Germany for years for printed publications denying “the” holocaust. Here, the Lobby finds allies in well-meaning middle-class advocates of purified language who wrongly and self-servingly believe that racism can and should be reduced by strict language and social behaviour codes.

If it were serious about discussing rights, Israel would admit the Palestinian rights of return and of self-determination. It would respect the right to life and liberty enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It would respect the Geneva Conventions on military occupation. It would release all of its Palestinian prisoners. It would stop using its mass-killing machine against civilians, and so on. After that, it would also agree to be judged independently in making substantial reparations to all Palestinians, especially those occupied and the refugees.

Q: The United Nations has just appointed a fact-finding committee to probe into Israel’s possible war crimes during its recent military operation against the Gaza Strip. Do you see the political will and determination in the United Nations to really hold Israel accountable and investigate its criminal conduct in an impartial and fair way?

A: We’ll see. The more interesting question is whether citizens will provide a significant backlash if the commissioners do not properly do what must be done. And, will Israel and the Empire succeed in derailing this UN commission of inquiry into Israel’s war crimes?

Will this commission allow the UN to salvage some credibility? Will the Lobby succeed in its personal attacks against the commission’s chairman? Will anything significant on the ground come from the legalistic exercise?

Nothing significant has come from the UN in the past. This Gaza massacre was as criminal and as evil as the previous one. The only evolution has been the development of the remarkable Gazan military resistance, from killing three invading soldiers in the previous land incursion, to some 70 Israeli soldiers this time. We can only hope that this progression will continue, enough to deter Israel.

Q: What do you think is the reason for Israel’s obduracy in keeping the blockade of Gaza Strip in place and its continued refusal to lift it? Is the siege going to serve certain purposes, such as the demonization of Hamas and turning the residents of Gaza against it?

A: Israel’s program is to eradicate or neutralize all Palestinians who make claim to a home in Palestine. This is exactly what Israel has been doing since before its artificial creation. Israel’s program is planned incremental dispossession and an ongoing attempted genocide. This has been repeatedly and explicitly expressed by the Zionist architects and executioners.

Over 300 Nazi Holocaust survivors and their descendants recently signed an open letter, published as an advertisement in the New York Times, calling what Israel is doing what it is, genocide. Israel’s attempted genocide of Palestinians is also expressly cheered-on by many Israeli citizens and by members of the Zionist diaspora of all religions.

Therefore, the Israeli apartheid is not meant as a sustained apartheid. It is an increment in the attempted genocide that accompanies the racist pillaging of land and resources. The massacres in Gaza and the collective punishments against Gazans can be understood only in this context.

As such, Israel will continue the gruesome intimidations of all sorts, which are Israel’s history, and which are intended to cause Palestinians to flee from Palestine. Israel wants Gaza. And, Israel wants all Palestinians out of the greater Israel that it is creating.

The US accepts Israel’s crimes against Palestinians because the US “accepts” Israel’s conviction that this is necessary for Israel’s “security”. The US acceptance of the Zionist genocide is part of the negotiated understanding between the Empire and Israel. The US propaganda about seeking restraint is purely deflection and risk management for the Empire.

Furthermore, Israel knows that a real impediment to its greater design, its final solution, is Palestinian armed resistance, presently limited to Gaza. Israel, therefore, has an illegitimate military objective to strangle the armed resistance and to murder its leaders and closest enablers, and the Zionists willfully disregard international law to pursue this aim. It is a classic dirty war of extermination of popular armed resistance. If Israel cannot kill the armed resistance, then it plans to expel and kill the population that supports the resistance. In any case, it wants Gaza.

Within this criminal mentality, there is no way that Israel will voluntarily relax the blockade. The fight to dissolve the blockade, and even just to have Israel respect the general language of the ceasefire agreement to ease restrictions at the Gaza border crossings, will be continuous and arduous.

This is what Israel does. It strangles Palestinians. Only real pressures can slow Israel and, one day soon, turn it around. Things can happen. Populations can enforce democratic rule. Leaders can side with popular movements. Anything is possible when resisters everywhere become committed and determined. It happened in the recent past with liberation struggles everywhere when the British Empire was forced to retract, and with civil rights and democratized institutions in the 1960s. It’s happening in Latin America now. It’s happening on the streets. It can happen again and everywhere.

All-Party Agreement in Canada on War with ISIL by Anthony Hall

All-Party Agreement in Canada on War with ISIL

John Baird, Marc Garneau, and Paul Dewar, the Three Amigos of Canadian Foreign Policy, Present a Unified Front Pushing for More War in the Middle East

by

Anthony Hall

The busy promoters of aggressive war at the Globe and Mail got their money shot on an Iraqi runway. The dominant image on the middle page of the first section of the Sept. 4 edition pictured the Canadian government’s Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird, flanked by his partisan “critics” in the NDP and Liberal parties.

tonyHallphoto

The underlying message was that Canadians will not be presented with a meaningful parliamentary debate on the impending US-Israeli led military encounter with the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant, ISIL. The well-funded mercenary army of ISIL is a strange concoction shaped by some of the psychological stylists of the Global War on Terror to embody and confirm every possible stereotype in “the West” about violent and irrational Islamic terrorists.

The three amigos of Canadian foreign policy, namely Baird, Marc Garneau and Paul Dewar, are confirming a pattern that those running our three main political parties do not want vigorous public debate on big issues of war and peace, life and death. Yet again, grave issues concerning Canada’s military and diplomatic orientation to the rest of the world are not to be put before the Canadian people in the form of genuine parliamentary debate. We Canadians are to be kept in the dark as much as possible about what is being done internationally in our name.

ISIL incorporates many of the same people that the Canadian government recently helped and lauded in overthrowing the of regime Muammar Gaddafi in Libya and in the unsuccessful attempt to implement regime change in Syria. Now ISIL is being set up to justify a major military intervention on the expanding eastern frontiers of so-called “Greater Israel.”

The Globe and Mail informs us that Canada’s contribution to the fulfillment of Oden Yinon’s strategic plan for the balkanization of Israel’s neighbours will initially include “six CF-18 jet fighters to take part in bombing sorties—similar to the contribution to NATO strikes on Libya in 2011…some special forces, organizational help and aircraft such as C-130 Hercules planes or Chinook helicopters.” Said Baird during the Iraqi Photo Op, “Canada will not stand idly by as ISIS continues to murder innocent civilians.”

Canada’s Parliamentary Democracy Is Being Sabotaged

Of course Baird, Dewar, and Garneau, the three amigos of Canadian foreign policy, were united in their shared support for the Israeli government’s killing spree of Gazan civilians earlier this summer. The breakdown of the effectiveness of Canada’s ailing parliamentary democracy was similarly put on full public display in 2011 in the lead up to the federal election. The Liberals and NDP backed the Harper government in its decision to join with al-Qaeda mercenaries in promoting the violent overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s pan-Africanist regime. The MSM together with Canada’s three main political parties colluded to see that the issue of NATO’s cynical co-optation of the Arab Spring did not become a significant election issue.

The decision of the Canadian government to back Islamic mercenaries in Libya planted the seeds of the military confrontation currently brewing in the Middle East. The layers of silence and misrepresentation surrounding the journey from NATO’s intervention in Libya to the War on ISIL raise legitimate fears that the world is being set up for some sort of major false flag terror nightmare like that which took place in September 11, 2001.

To this day neither the mainstream media nor mainstream politicians like Baird, Dewar and Garneau, have properly explained that al-Qaeda, the group blamed for 9/11, was assembled and armed by the CIA and collaborators in Pakistan to overthrow the Soviet-backed puppet regime in Afghanistan. The role of “the West’s” intelligence agencies in recruiting, arming, training, and funding al-Qaeda right up to and after the events of 9/11 does not easily fit the master narrative for public consumption in the Global War on Terror.

Trading on Amnesia and Media Disinformation

Now Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party and Thomas Mulcair’s NDP Party have joined forces with Stephen Harper plus Canada’s war-promoting mainstream media in a bid to avert significant public debate before Canada gets involved in a military confrontation with ISIL.

Accordingly, due diligence is not being done by many parties, including the professional propagandists for aggressive war at venues like the Globe and Mail. The scope and depth of the misrepresentations they are disseminating are astonishing in their audacity.

Before being pulled into yet another one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s foreign adventures, Canadians have a right to know ISIL’s history. Before committing Canadians to military action, public officials including those in the opposition parties owe Canadians a clear explanation of ISIL’s background. Who has been funding the organization and why? Is ISIL being deployed as part of a psychological operation to justify the break up of Iraq as has long been called for by Israeli military strategists? Is ISIL now being built up and played to provide the pretext for a return to the script of regime change in Syria? Is this military muscle flexing by the usual suspects meant to be a prelude to pushing for the realization of Likud’s vision of a Greater Israel?

Is ISIL being branded as the new al-Qaeda? Is the sudden prominence of ISIL being manufactured to supply more compelling, high-tech imagery of all-purpose Arab Boogeymen in Black? Are we seeing an operation to stimulate and exploit heightened public fears in order to justify, for instance, yet further growth in military budgets, more police state incursions, and the further growth of an unrelenting surveillance state empowered to spy, often illegally, on the entire citizenry?

Why does ISIL’s leadership, which is reputed to have been trained by Israel’s Mossad, devote all its attention to exacerbating divisions within Islam and none at all to addressing the incursions of the Israel state on the Arab people of the region? Are Baird, Dewar and Garneau simply following orders delivered by some of the same people who seem to have played significant roles in organizing, implementing, covering up and exploiting the 9/11 debacle? Are we seeing the onset of another effort to stage manage events in order to advance the misapprehension that Israel’s regional enemies in the Middle East must always be understood as the overall enemies of “the West”?

Current, Past and Continuing Carnage in Palestine. Open Letter to NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair by Wallace Klinck

LET2MULCAIRKLINCKFINAL

(“Hon.”) Thomas Mulcair,

Having received your Party’s appeal for assistance to “evacuate” child victims of Israeli slaughter in Palestine I must say that in my opinion this is about the most hypocritical and frankly insipid initiative that I could imagine.  If the degenerate and/or demented politicians of the West who obviously place political power above all else, including the lives of innocents, had taken firm and decisive ethical, educated and effective action over a half-century (and more) ago to prevent this unspeakable tragedy which was predicted and warned against by informed, intelligent and moral people—including, to no avail, some conscientious Jews—the whole situation would never have transpired.
Apparently the NDP (No Damned Principles Party?) wants to facilitate the complete destruction and dispossession of the indigenous  peoples of that ill-fated and pitiful land by doing nothing to stop the outrage while actually assisting in the expulsion of the Palestinians from their historic land.  All “justified” by the most outrageous and preposterous claims made in support of a rude, crude, murderous, Anti-Christian Pharisaic monstrosity which has battened itself upon the area and seeks continued extensive expansion in the Middle East, per se.  And, typically, your appeal offers no opportunity for comment or input from those to whom it is made.  Just donate—that’s all!  Your contempt for not only the morals but the intelligence of the general public must be without bounds.
At least the misguided and/or contemptible sympathies and alliances of the Harper “Canadian” Government are openly proclaimed from the roof-tops, without, of course, ever dealing candidly in depth with the real historic and philosophical/religious issues involved, with the arrogant and insulting assumption that the public is too uninformed and/or plainly stupid to ever know or understand such matters in any case.  Certainly every effort is made to ensure that an assumed ignorant public remains in that useful state.  They are, nevertheless, rapidly becoming less so uneducated.
We are informed from history, Mr. Mulcair, that the Roman Senator Cicero declared that politicians were not born but excreted.  Undoubtedly, he had enough experience to know something of the facts which obtained during his lifetime and by all appearances we might conclude that nothing much has changed over a span of two-thousand years.
Personally, I would not knowingly approach within five-hundred miles of you and the leadership, especially, of the other political parties more or less in general, if not exclusively, for fear of polluting my soul.  If I did not consider myself to be a Christian, I would sorely be tempted to wish you all who are culpable a pleasant abode in Perdition for Eternity.  No doubt, a Higher Power will adjudicate this issue.  Little wonder it is that the word “politician” is becoming, unfortunately but inexorably, a curse upon the lips of growing multitudes of people.
Yours Very Sincerely
Wallace Klinck

 

How Canada’s NDP enables and seeks to participate in the Israel genocide of Gaza By Denis G. Rancourt

NDPnoprinci

By Denis G. Rancourt

DenisGRancourt

It is no longer a question of serious debate whether Israel’s intentions and actions constitute genocide, versus less serious crimes against humanity, or simple war crimes [1]. The Israeli establishment, Jewish Israeli citizens, and some prominent members of the Jewish diaspora all expressly call for genocide (extermination, cleansing, “mowing the grass”, etc.). Op-Eds and media statements by Israeli government officials are explicit. Thus, Israel’s actions since 1948 need not speak for themselves, although the actions themselves do speak plenty loud enough. [2][3][4]

All three major Canadian political parties (Conservatives, Liberals, NDP) directly enable the Israel genocide against Palestinians by:

  1. staunchly refusing to condemn Israel for its now-routine mass slaughters in Gaza, or for its latest and most brazen mass slaughter in Gaza of the last month;
  2. expressly, repeatedly, and glibly insisting that Israel — the aggressor, occupier, and perpetrator — has a “right to defend itself”;
  3. accepting and enforcing the US-Israel stance that the forefront formation of Palestinian resistance — Hamas, the elected representatives of Gazans — is a “terrorist” organization;
  4. using this contrived classification of Hamas as a false pretext for allowing the Israel genocide to continue unimpeded, and as a pretext to prevent any meaningful negotiations by allowing Hamas to be excluded from all settlement discussions.

The Green party also plays this role admirably well.

But mostly one has to admire the Conservatives for being consistently vehement with their support for the terrorist state of Israel, whereas the others are pathetic in the apologetic tone of their public statements in support of Israeli crimes, and in their sustained attempts to deceive their potential supporters.

And it is an obvious question to ask how it is that all these parties follow the exact same script? It’s almost like there is an edict being decreed from some unseen body, otherwise known as the Israel Lobby — the US-Empire’s de facto whip on the Empire’s Middle East policy [3].

Back to the NDP. In trying to deceive concerned Canadian citizens while serving the Israeli project of genocide, the Zionist Thomas Mulcair (leader of the NDP) is testing a particularly disturbing tactic: He wants to “bring injured children from Gaza to Canada for treatment” [5][6][7]. Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish is apparently allowing himself to be used in this way, and is fully participating in the proposed scheme [5][6][7].

The NDP would have us follow Dr. Abuelaish who “rejected the politics of hatred and revenge, and instead committed himself to reconciliation and love” [5]. Translated, in its context I take this to mean: to not condemn Israel for its abominable on-going crimes, including incremental genocide, and, instead, to remove children from Gaza in a vast guilt-alleviation scam rather than demand that the blockade be lifted immediately so that all Gazans can begin to benefit from improved medical care and healthier living conditions.

As far as I can tell, this latest public-image-management scheme is not something that originated from Gazan civil society, or from the victims themselves and their extended families. Such systematic child removal is an ethical nightmare: How could this crass proposal have been cooked up and why? Have any of the MDs who want to participate ever asked to volunteer in Gaza, or have they ever spoken out against the Israeli crimes against humanity in Gaza? On so on.

This is lower than low: “Let’s save Gazan children by bringing a token 100 of them to modern medicine in Toronto! Let’s put all the needed diplomatic and logistical resources into this scheme rather than sending aid to Gaza to the people in the field who best know the priorities of what is needed.”

One of the possible defining characteristic of genocide is “Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” [1]. Arguably, this is the only characteristic of genocide that racist-Israel had not yet materialized. It would appear that it took Canadian multiculturalism and the NDP — benefiting from Canada’s extensive experience from its own highly successful genocide against the First Peoples [2] — to bring us there.

Bravo Thomas.

To me, the NDP scheme is repugnant, à la Zionist Mulcair, and it shows how naive the Canadian public has become (at least the potential supporters of the NDP) that such projects can be proposed for public consumption, and seriously be echoed in some media, without critical analysis. Have we gone mad?

B.C. Premier Christie Clark: Just Another Whore of Babylon and Puppet of the Zionist Jews by Arthur Topham

Is it ever going to end? Are we to wait in vain for a real Canadian politician to stand up and speak out for the defenceless people of Gaza, Palestine? Or are we destined as a nation to bear witness to every political leader in the country from the Prime Minister down through the ranks of all the federal parties to the provincial premiers fawning and grovelling in abject, disgusting, traitorous obeisance to the Zionist Jews and that murderous Beast Israel who is daily performing blood rituals and human sacrifice of children and women and men all for the sake of Greater Israel and their self-chosen, insane, power-crazed delusion that one day they will take over the whole of the Arab middle east and then conclude their mad agenda for total global hegemony and the establishment of a Jew World Order?

The massacre in Gaza throughout July has had one, and only one, beneficial result for the whole world and that is, it’s painted, in the most poignant and heart-rending colours possible, a portrait of Zionism that’s as true to life as the world will ever see: a picture of what awaits the rest of the world if the freedom-loving, humane and sensible people of this planet don’t somehow put a stop to this frightening evil entity that’s about to turn the planet into either one gigantic Zionist Orwellian gulag or else a nuclear fireball that will continue to revolve around the Sun in silence and death for eternity.

Having outed themselves one by one all of our federal leaders are now exposed for who they are: war criminals and sycophants of the racist, apartheid, supremacist state of Israel who do the bidding of a foreign nation, placing its priorities well above those of the Canadian electorate. All of these party heads are traitors to Canada in the true sense of the word and their slavish, apologetic and serpentine slithering about on the political stage will never be mistaken again for what it is.

In former times they would have been arrested and either tossed into a dungeon for the remainder of their lives or else dragged kicking and screaming on to a scaffold to dangle from the short end of a rope. But today of course in Canada’s conditioned politically correct world things are much different and instead of getting their just rewards for their complicity in the murder and destruction of a defenceless people they are given free trips over to Israel to witness the blood letting and get further mind-controlled and attend the ritual visit to one of their “holocaust” shrines to further ingratiate themselves before that nation of sadistic killers.

The latest politician, cut from the same cloth as Harper, Mulcair, Trudeau and May, to emerge from the Zionist Israeli closet in this mini-series of misery and butchery of innocents in Gaza appears to be none other than Christie Clark, Premier of the province of British Columbia, Canada, who, according to a Canadian Press story released on July 29th, 2014, has come out and, “aligned herself and British Columbia with Israel in a letter to a Jewish-Canadian advocacy group” called The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), an umbrella organization that recently decommissioned the former Canadian Jewish Congress and is now aligned with B’nai Brith Canada a branch of B’nai Brith International which is the world’s most powerful Jews-only, Masonic Order on the planet, formulated and funded by the Rothschild banking cartel from its beginning.

For readers who are not familiar with either B’nai Brith Canada or my legal battle now in the B.C. Supreme Court, it was this organization that was instrumental in laying a sec. 13 “hate crime” complaint against me and my website radical press.com back in 2007 claiming that I was promoting hatred toward “Jews and citizens of Israel”. Then, in 2012, when that spurious piece of legislation was about to be repealed they turned around and filed a second complaint with the B.C. Hate Crime Unit out of Surrey, B.C. and proceeded to fly up to the interior of the province and arrest and charge me with a sec. 319(2) Criminal Court of Canada offence synonymous with the former sec. 13 legislation and again accusing me of “promoting hatred toward Jews”, all for having published truthful and factual articles and images depicting this war-crazed nation and its ideology known as Zionism.

From all that Christie Clark states in the article it’s clearly apparent that she’s just as brainwashed and stupid as the rest of these so-called “leaders” when it comes to understanding what’s actually going on in the Middle East and like the rest of the aforementioned puppets her justification for the ongoing slaughter of civilians (now numbering well over 1000) is to spout off the same repetitive Zionist incantation catch-phrase, “Israel has the right to defend itself and its citizens against terrorist attacks” and then proceed to overlook all the horror and destruction and death that’s  now occurring in Palestine.

According to the Canadian Press article, “The letter was read aloud to a gathering of nearly 1,000 people on Sunday at the Temple Sholom synagogue in Vancouver and received an ovation, said Darren Mackoff, director of The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs.

It coincides with a trip by six Canadian parliamentarians to Israel, arranged by the centre, to gain firsthand knowledge on the conflict between Israel and Hamas. And it echoes the stance taken by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird that Israel has a right to defend itself.”

Now it may be important to the Zionist Jews of Vancouver, Canada that Clark has betrayed the trust of all British Columbians and spoken favourably and ignorantly of Israel’s war crimes against defenceless Palestinians but it sure as hell doesn’t sit well with me that she’s slandering and belittling the thousands upon thousands of British Columbians who are deeply incensed with the psychopathic,deranged, satanic ritual killing that’s going on in Gaza at the hands of the Israeli government military and attempting, via her malicious and sleazy rhetoric, to make those of us opposed to this carnage complicit before the eyes of the world.

As the article goes on to further state not everyone was happy with Clark’s letter to CIJA. The Chairman of the Canada Palestine Association, Hanna Kawas, was also incensed over Clark’s remarks and called it “outrageous” and accused Clark of kowtowing to the Jews in order to gain their votes and more importantly, likely, their shekels.

He basically hit the nail on the head when he said,  “We have enough people who don’t know what they’re talking about in Ottawa, so we don’t need more people who really don’t know what they’re talking about in B.C.” 

So now that B.C. has bowed down to the murderous Jewish lobbyists here in Canada who can we expect next? Alberta? Saskatchewan? Manitoba? Ontario? Quebec? etc. It looks like we’re going to need a very large rogues gallery in order to post all the mug shots of all the traitorous Canadian politicians who have sold out their allegiance to Canada for a box of bagels from the bigots in Tel Aviv who are busy blowing up defenceless women and children so that Israel can show the world how goddam “democratic” they are.

Stay tuned for the next Canadian traitor politician to appear on behalf of the self-chosen.

So You Thought the Green Party was Different from the rest, eh? By Arthur Topham

GreenZionistParty

 

RPEditor400

So you though the Green Party of Canada was different from the rest, eh? Well, no surprises here at Radical Press.

Given the current political climate in the former independent, sovereign democracy known as Canada and now recognized around the world as just another Zionist occupied, Jew controlled asset of Israel and the Rothschild banking cartel; the same cartel, mind you, that created the Jewish Central Banking System that’s now devastating the economies of the world; the false flag “US FEDERAL RESERVE” which is, in reality, just a consortium of private Jew banks that have put millions of gentiles or what they call goy or goyim (cattle) into massive and endless, un-repayable debt slavery; and that played the decisive role in creating that that little Zionist hell hole in the middle of Arab territory 66 years ago that’s now become the eyesore and embarrassment of the whole human race and what we once so proudly referred to as “civilization”.

At first it appeared that only Harper and the Conservatives were the lackeys of the Israeli Jews given their overt and unabashed subservience to that criminal “state” and all the media hype about it in the Jew controlled media here in Canada.

Then when Israel went ballistic once again in July and began yet another massive military attack on the defenceless citizens of Gaza the issue of who “STANDS WITH ISRAEL” and who doesn’t suddenly took on a whole new dimension.

It was after Israel began their high-tech, killing of Gazan men, women and children that the issue of obeisance and allegiance to that foreign, rogue state suddenly took on greater importance as average Canadians, outraged and incensed by both Israel’s pathological behaviour and Harper’s hyper cheerleading of the senseless slaughter, finally realized that the Conservatives were just as callous and crazy and criminal as the Jews in Israel and so they began to cast their eyes toward the other federal parties in search of some sanity, fairness and a sense of humanitarianism, compassion and justice.

Those on the left side of the political spectrum turned to the obvious choice and voice of the socialist ideal – the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP), hoping to find there an opposing perspective on the issue of Israel’s outlandish slaughter of innocent Palestinians; something to act as a counterweight to the blatant imbalance that the country was witnessing in the shameful and degrading behaviour of the Harper Conservative government. Sadly, they were again disappointed to find that the leader of the NDP, Thomas Mulcair, was just another Zionist face hiding behind a beard and forked tongue mouthing the same old Zionist lies that Harper’s been spewing forth for years now.

On the other hand the more liberal-minded Canadians cast a longing gaze at the new federal Liberal party leader Justin Trudeau, again thinking that he, of all the federal leaders, would be the one that patriotic Canadians long for. He, above all the rest, would surely STAND UP FOR CANADA rather than for the war-mongering maniacs in Israel who are blowing little kids heads off and acting like psychopathic monstrosities out of some low grade Hollywood horror movie. But, alas, no, once again they were disillusioned to find that even Justin the Just was just another zio agent, paid flunky of Israhell, posturing as best he could yet still, after all was said and done, STANDING FOR ISRAEL rather than for Canada and a neutral, common sense and decent foreign policy. He was just another sycophant of the Jew lobby B’nai Brith Canada and one more traitor to the nation.

Well, it appeared that after striking out three times the country was left with only one choice and one leader left in the house – Elizabeth May of the federal Green Party of Canada. With the other three parties brown-nosing Zionist toadies and losers here was a golden opportunity for May and her band of Greenies to come to the fore and take an affirmative stand in support of the Palestinian people, world peace and justice. The Fourth Way so to speak and the final chance for Canada to redeem its former image as a truly democratic and peace-loving nation.

May&EstrinPicture

But now it appears that all is lost here in Canada as recent revelations show that May’s President of the Green Party of Canada, Paul Estrin, has revealed himself to be the latest and the final Zio-stake to be pounded into the heart of dying nation.

Now this is pure speculation on my part but over the many years of researching the subject of political Zionism and the Jewish Question I’ve cast my eye upon hundreds of faces of Jews and Paul Estrin’s face bares a striking resemblance to many of the self-chosen who I’ve seen before. I tried to find out if he was, in fact, a Jewish dual citizen but to date haven’t been successful. Possible someone reading this article will be able to point me in the right direction. But regardless of whether Estrin is actually Jewish or merely a shabez goy, he definitely made his position clear in an article, Why Gaza Makes me Sad, which was posted on the blog section of the Green Party of Canada’s website and which clearly states that he, as President of the party, is most assuredly someone who STANDS FOR ISRAEL.

Of course not all Greenies are obscenies who revel in and relish what Israel sees as its divine right to slaughter anyone and everyone who stands in its way of taking over the whole of middle east from the Nile to the Euphrates. Some of the more sensitive and sane of the lot called Estrin on his traitorous words and before you could say, “the moon is made out of green cheese”, the shyte hit the fan and the Jew media hopped on the story and now the Greens have managed to present their face to the world and, tragically, its covered with green slime and blood and gore and bits of little Palestinian baby parts sliding from its incredulous countenance. And Elizabeth May is suddenly caught in the ensuing media storm and struggling to preserve her image and the image of her party as one of conscientious, peace-loving, concerned, environmentally-sensitive, responsible people.

I don’t envy her one iota at this time and I think her reaction to Estrin’s pro-Israel article wasn’t forceful enough nor was it honest enough to convince Canadians that his Zionist leanings are merely the opinion of one person and that they don’t reflect Green Party policy.

May, as leader, cannot possibly be that disconnected from the second most influential person in her party that she’s unaware of his position with respect to Israel, the Jews, Zionism and the tragic conditions that the Palestinian people are forced to exist under. I don’t buy it for a second. It’s beyond dispute that these two individuals have spend countless hours in close collusion and discussion on issues such as the behaviour of the racist, apartheid state of Israel and its absolutely abysmal and inexcusable behaviour toward its neighbour Palestine. It’s virtually impossible to conceive of these two people not knowing each other’s deepest thoughts and opinions on matters such as these. Given such an assertion, for May to not have immediately fired or dismissed Estrin outright for his traitorous betrayal of Canada, is indefensible and a clear indication that she’s playing politics with the issue and not being honest or forthright to either her party members or Canadians as a whole.

For all the mealy-mouthed rhetoric that’s coming forth from all four of these Zionist Israel apologists the whole lot of them ought to resign and beg forgiveness of the people of Canada for having fallen prey to the siren songs of the Jewish lobbyists, Israeli sophistry, and the ‘power of the purse’ and their media that hold such psychic sway over the minds of Canada’s political ‘leaders’.

From all appearances thus far it looks like we’re right back at square one with another federal election looming in the not too distant future and not a single political party with any sound moral or ethical principles to choose from. What’s left for the electorate of Canada? The Rhino Party? The Canadian Action Party? Or possibly the Canadian People’s Party?

Canada has a lot of navel gazing to do over the next year and a lot of work ahead of her to regain her dignity and her place in the global community. I pray that she gets on with the task as soon as possible and that we rid our Zionist infected nation of all parties who support the blood thirsty New World Order ideology of Israel and Zionism.

Gaza’s in flames — and Canada’s opposition is running for cover By Andrew Mitrovica

Gaza’s in flames — and Canada’s opposition is running for cover

By  | Jul 23, 2014

Apparently, Canadians looking for political (or moral) leadership on the latest eruption of death and destruction in Gaza need to look to Britain, of all places.

Particularly, Canadians repulsed by images of dead and maimed Palestinian children and women, the sick and old, need to turn to British Labour Leader Ed Miliband to hear a politician state the obvious: Palestinians are being killed, injured and made homeless in far greater numbers than Israelis.

Here’s the latest awful tally: 687 Palestinians dead, including scores of women and children. At least 900 children are among the thousands injured. On the Israeli side: 31 soldiers and three civilians dead.

Now, Miliband will never be confused with Tony Benn. He is one of those ultra-careful Labour politicians in the mould of a young, circumspect Tony Blair. Nevertheless, this is what Miliband told the Huffington Post after a recent meeting with Barack Obama and the U.S. president’s top national security advisor: “We oppose the Israeli incursion into Gaza.”

That’s polite code for: The Israeli military should get out of Gaza and stop killing civilians. Miliband doesn’t call it an invasion — which it is — but opts for the rather gentle euphemism “incursion.”

Last week, however, Miliband went much further in a televised statement: “As a party we oppose the further escalation of violence we have seen with Israel’s invasion of Gaza. I defend Israel’s right to defend itself against rocket attacks. But I cannot explain, justify or defend the horrifying deaths of hundreds of Palestinians, including children and innocent civilians.” (Note that, in front of a friendly British audience, Miliband did indeed use the word “invasion.”)

Before anyone accuses Miliband of being a Hamas–loving anti-Semite, or worse, let me remind you the Labour leader is Jewish.

Have we heard a Canadian politician of any consequence come anywhere near to saying that he or she “cannot explain, justify or defend the horrifying deaths” of hundreds of Palestinian civilians?

I’m not talking about cryptic blog posts on private Facebook accounts that only a politician’s ‘friends’ are privy to, or dry, predictable press releases. I’m talking about a leader of a Canadian political party standing up in a room before a microphone and saying what Miliband has said in public.

It hasn’t happened. In the current geopolitical climate, it may never happen.

What have we heard instead? Well, we’ve heard this nation’s deliriously pro-Israel Conservative prime minister and his ministers tell us with chest-thumping bravado that the Israelis can kill and maim as many Palestinians as they want to, for however long they want to, with whatever means they want to. This, of course, includes four boys playing soccer in the sand under a blue sky.

And what about Canada’s Official Opposition, the NDP? You know, those social democratic standard-bearers of a party rooted in the Christian values of Tommy Douglas, and later David Lewis and Ed Broadbent.

Good old Ed, you may recall, was, for many years, the vice-president of Socialist International and then, from 1990 to 1996, the first president of the International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development (ICHRDD) in Montreal.

 

 Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 12.06.06 PM

I tried to tee up an interview with the ex-NDP leader, but Broadbent’s people at his Ottawa institute told me he was traveling and unavailable. When I asked when he might be able to chat about what’s happening in Gaza, I got no reply.

In early January 2010, Broadbent was squawking about how the Harper government was gutting the “integrity and independence” of the ICHRDD after the centre’s new Tory-friendly board “repudiated” two small grants it had made to two aid groups operating in Gaza that were critical of Israel’s human rights record. “There’s a chill,” Broadbent told The Globe and Mail at the time. (No surprise, Harper and Co. shuttered the centre in April 2012.)

There’s a chill in the air in Ottawa, all right. It appears to be blowing from right at the top at NDP HQ.

If you visit the NDP’s website you’ll quickly learn that any mention of Gaza is hidden. The top policy items on the site include Canada Post delivery cuts, household debt, abolishing the Senate and “Standing Up for The CBC.”

If you dig a little, you will unearth a statement and a letter to Foreign Minister John Baird penned by Paul Dewar, the party’s foreign affairs critic, in which he expresses concern over the “escalation of tensions in Gaza and Israel” and asks that the minister help “de-escalate the situation.”

When I asked a top NDP official if I could set up interview with Mulcair to discuss Gaza — and the fact that a growing number of NDP supporters are outraged at his near-invisibility and muted response on the topic — he told me his boss was taking a few days off. Later, he emailed me a short transcript and video link for an old Mulcair interview which touched briefly on the disproportional and rising death toll in Gaza.

“If it were as simple as saying, ‘One side is always right, the other side is always wrong’, it would be quite simple,” Mulcair told CTV. “We’re watching in horror at what’s happening, the firing of rockets at civilians populations, utterly unacceptable. Israel has the right to defend itself. The attacks into Gaza that are producing many civilian casualties, again, that’s something that no one in Canada can remain indifferent to.”

Then — as if prompted by protestors’ shouts of “Shame” within earshot of NDP HQ yesterday — Mulcair briefly emerged from hibernation … not to venture out in public like Miliband, but to release another statement.

In it, Mulcair basically recites the talking points from the CTV interview, saying he is “deeply concerned” about “the incursion … into Gaza (that has) already caused too many civilian casualties. No one in Canada can remain indifferent to these deaths.”

Mulcair makes it clear that he doesn’t oppose the Israeli “incursion.” In fact, it could be argued that in the not too distant past, Mulcair sent some billboard-sized signals — telling theCanadian Jewish News in November 2013 that, while he supported a two-state solution, he is “a friend of Israel under all circumstances.”

And in his French remarks celebrating the 60th anniversary of Israel’s founding in May 2008, Mulcair emphasized his “friendship” with Israel, saying that he supported Israel in “all instances” under “all circumstances.” So much for the honest broker of peace.

And what has boy wonder Justin Trudeau had to say in the face of the mounting catastrophe in Gaza? As with the NDP, Gaza is nowhere in sight on the Liberal Party of Canada’s homepage. Buried on its website is a four-sentence “statement” issued by Trudeau on July 15. Here’s the key sentence: “Israel has the right to defend itself and its people. Hamas is a terrorist organization and must cease its rocket attacks immediately.”

There’s not a word of condemnation about the mass killing of Palestinians civilians from the son of that so-called ‘internationalist’, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. (I’m not surprised, since I’m old enough to remember Pierre Trudeau’s flippant crack about the humanitarian crisis in Biafra in 1969, when millions were facing starvation: “Where’s Biafra?”)

Despite their posturing, all those dead and injured Palestinian women and children really don’t count for much with Harper, Mulcair and Trudeau. They’re largely invisible — and not that important.

Open Letter to Canada’s 3 Zionist Stooges by Arthur Topham

[Editor’s Note: The following letter was sent to all three leaders of Canada’s main political parties this morning.]

RPEditor400

To the Dishonourable PM Stephen Harper,

By your words and your actions it is self-evident that as Leader of the Conservative party you are unfit to govern Canada. This applies as well to you Thomas Mulcair, NDP Leader and you Justin Trudeau, Liberal Leader.

Due to your avowed and combined support for the racist, terrorist, rogue state of Israel all three of you are guilty of treason and war crimes and should be removed from office forthwith.

Your stance that Canada should STAND WITH ISRAEL rather than with TRUTH, JUSTICE, HONESTY AND INTERNATIONAL LAW makes you all complicit in the war crimes that the state of Israel is undoubtedly guilty of; crimes that beggar the minds and moral consciences of Canadians everywhere.

Your combined actions have made Canada an embarrassment and a pariah on the global stage, shaming us as a nation and opening up our land and people to whatever reprisals may occur due to your misfeasance and collaboration with the Israel.

Were you men of honour you would willingly resign your posts and beg forgiveness of the people of Canada but, of course, being but sell-out sycophants of the Zionist Jew lobby and the state of Israel and, as such, cold-hearted aiders and abetters of the Machiavellian massacre of innocent men, women and children in Palestine, you will undoubtedly continue your efforts to pervert and destroy all the democratic ideals that Canada once stood for.

Your undisguised support of Israel makes of you an unholy trinity of evil and a direct threat to Canadian sovereignty.

May God show you no mercy and may the people of Canada finally wake up to your game plan and oust the three of you unrepentant Zionist puppets from the political stage forever.

 

Sincerely,

WAKE UP CANADA! By Arthur Topham

WAKEUPCANADA!

WAKE UP CANADA!

By Arthur Topham

The current global crisis in Gaza, Palestine, where the Israeli military is once again slaughtering the entrapped Palestinian people with willful intent and destroying the region’s infrastructure, has forced Canada’s major political parties – the Conservative Party of Canada, the Liberal Party of Canada and the New Democratic Party of Canada – to reveal their hand in terms of where they stand with respect to the carnage being perpetrated against the Palestinian people.

Not surprisingly, for those who have been observing the persistent, aggressive, war (otherwise known as “ethnic cleansing”) against Palestine over the past sixty-six years, all three parties have opted to “STAND WITH ISRAEL”. This revelation has astounded and angered many decent Canadians who still clung to the old belief that Canada ought to remain either in a neutral position or take a more pro-active stance and speak out against the illegal and immoral actions of the state of Israel.

What the latest round of unwarranted attacks upon Gaza has resulted in for Canada as a nation is the irrefutable and unequivocal realization that all of our major political parties and their leaders are firmly in the grasp of the Zionist-Jew controlled forces working through what is euphemistically referred to as the “New World Order” (aka NWO) and their words and deeds are but the reflective mouthings of three Zionist-controlled Puppets suspended in conscience and dangling haplessly from the covert, occult hidden hand of a tyrannical and blood-thirsty power structure that is driving the world into a state of madness, confusion and soon-to-be, endless chaos and civil strife.

We Canadians have always been told that as a nation we tend to lag about a decade behind the USA in terms of our political policies and the present example of these three zio-stooges basically confirms this assertion.

In the October, 2001 edition of my former monthly tabloid The Radical (shown in the image below) I used the same bold header as I’ve done for the present article. Only the names have been changed. That edition (13 years past) was the first reaction to the events of September 11, 2001 when this same criminal NWO cartel pulled off what was, without a doubt, the greatest false flag operation since their 1917 coup in the former Republic of Russia when the Zionist/Communist/Marxist forces were able to mastermind the absolute take-over of one of the world’s largest and diverse nations. The world we’re now living in is but an extension and magnification on a global scale of what transpired 97 years ago.

WakeUpAmEdFulPgLrg copy 3

If Canadians had any illusions as to their sovereignty as an independent nation those cherished dreams have now been shattered forever. All that’s left for Canadians who still desire peace and respect for the democratic principles that have fostered our growth and freedom as an independent nations up to the present is to accept the fact that we are no longer in control of our individual and national destinies and begin to take steps in the direction of redressing what’s happened to us a country since 911 and the advent of present global tyrannical situation that’s affecting the people and the planet as a whole.

The dilemma, for us as a nation, is having to accept the obvious fact that all of our major political parties are now controlled by the Zionist NWO. With a federal election coming up in 2015 this presents voters with a major conundrum in terms of who to vote for. Not voting is not an option but there’s still time for people to redefine their prerogatives and choose to support a party that WILL STAND FOR CANADA! It might be the Canadian Action Party or some newly formed party. The chances of the Green Party of Canada opting for pro-Palestinian, anti-Zionist policies that directly conflict with those of Israel are next to impossible yet, even there, miracles do happen.

So the final questions must be: Are we going to allow the overly preponderant power of the Jewish lobbyists here in Canada to dictate our domestic and foreign policy? Are we going to stand by submissively and submit to decisions emanating forth from Ottawa that conform, not to the wishes of the majority of Canadians, but to the Zionist-Jewish power elite that run our banking institutions, our economy, our media and our academic infrastructure? Are we expected just to give up hope that Canada will ever regain its former status as a respected member of the world community merely because of the subterfuge and deception that has allowed for the electorate to be bamboozled by the Zionist media into believing that the Conservative Party of Canada and its leader Stephen Harper would somehow STAND FOR CANADA instead of a foreign, apartheid country that treats its arab population as second-class citizens and is, in itself, the only racist, Jews-only nation on the face of the planet? Are we, in other words, willing to give up our collective rights and freedoms and bow down slavishly to the dictates of this dark and sinister New World Order or are we going to regroup, rise up and resist?

The choice for Canada is there still. If we don’t act soon though it may be too late.

God bless Canada. God bless Palestine. And God bless all who strive for freedom, love, peace and dignity.
