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.

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.

For Brad Lavigne, Senior Policy Advisor, NDP       PERSONAL – URGENT

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:

Thanks – and more to come,

Sir:
You recently posted this article and it seems that you are quite proud of labelling all those organizations listed as “anti-Israel” and “anti-semitic”.
This list is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the hatred people have for the Zionist state of Israel including the USA and Canada which supports all their endeavours INCLUDING the amassing of weapons of mass destruction.
Israel has been the favoured nation by the USA, the latter having poured in BILLIONS into their treasury coffers since the end of WW2 as well as all the armaments needed to attack any neighbouring nations.
It is one of the richest nations in the Middle East and yet it manages to secure financing from a number of sources including the sale of Israeli bonds throughout the planet and the Jewish kosher tax paid to the various Jewish organizations and synagogues as a result of the display of the kosher symbol on various products sold to us unwary consumers in stores throughout the world. This is in addition to its control over the MSM and Hollywood just to name a few.
Screen-Shot-2014-06-04-at-10.56.23-PM
For barely 2% of the world’s population Israel and its lobbies wield a tremendous amount of power over Congress and the Parliament of Canada, just to name a few. Israel has become the favoured nation by Harper who unilaterally decreed that Canadians, right across our nation, support our federal government’s support for Israel. This is an utter falsehood!
Harper has NEVER taken a poll of Canadians on this subject because, as I read his lips, he was told not to do so. The boycott by Israel of Palestine, preventing the importation of needed food, medical supplies and other goods, is disgustingly immoral and illegal as far as this 79 year old is concerned. It is Israel that should be boycotted. But that won’t happen until push comes to shove!

Canadians Must Demand Psychological Testing of PM Harper by Betty Krawczyk

Harper’s Threats to Israel’s Boycotters

By

Betty Krawczyk

Betty K Photo

Okay, let me get this straight. Harper has announced that he and his government will severely punish anybody or any agency that signs onto the movement known as “Boycott, Divest and Sanction” (BDS). This organization, or movement, is aimed at encouraging Israel to do the right thing and stop treating its own Arab citizens as well as its Arab neighbours like dirt. One way to do this is by boycotting Israel’s products and investments. However, so far Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, backed up 200 per cent by our own Prime Minister says the BDS constitutes hate speech against Israel. Furthermore, Netanyahu has pledged to continue with his practice of apartheid within Israel as well as the murderous methodical bombing of the Gaza strip (mowing the grass, as Netanyahu reportedly called it) whenever he feels it is warranted. And Stephen Harper has pledged to Netanyahu that any Canadian who objects publically to this apartheid of Palestinians, and bombing of Gaza, especially by joining the BDS movement, will be prosecuted criminally by his government. Harper says there will be zero tolerance for anyone who dares support BDS. And that he will use Canadian hate crime legislation to back up his threats.

The man is precious. He really is. Talk about illusions of grandeur. But we Canadians deserve this kind of treatment from a man who fits the description of a megalomaniac. We just let him roll over us like a duck on the back of a June Bug. Why? Because we can’t believe how devious and delusional our Prime Minister actually is. And how much he is guided by his Angelical Fundamentalist Christian Religion. Harper loves Israel so much that he took twenty-one Jewish rabbis’ with him to visit Israel last year along with along with ten evangelical ministers of Harper’s own religious persuasion. Christian fundamentalists like Harper believe the Bible literally, including the book of Revelations. This Biblical revelation explains that Jesus will return to earth when Israel is at war with its neighbours (Jews being God’s chosen people). I believe this is the main reason Harper is so determined to get us into a deeper war in the Middle East. Never mind that the Canadian economy is getting scarier every day, with Canadians living on credit cards, student debt crippling our young, housing out of sight for city populations, climbing unemployment and the stock market roaring not from increased Canadian production, but from corporations buying back their own stock to make the market prices rise even higher for the one per cent.

I think we Canadians should demand a mental health test for all politicians when they become candidates for high public office. And that would include an examination of religious beliefs. Religious fundamentalists of any kind should be excluded from high public office. Fundamentalist religions of any kind can make people crazy and give them the conviction that because they belong to the right sect that they are the special children of a powerful god and others are, well, dirt. Evidentially Stephen Harper considers the general Canadian population to be so stupid that we can be told anything and we’ll obey. I don’t know about you, but for my part, I intend to find out pronto where I go to join the “Boycott, Divest, Sanction” (BDS) movement.

Canada PM’s anti-Iran remarks illogical, spiteful: Tehran from PressTV

Iran has dismissed as “repetitious, illogical and tedious” Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s allegations that Iranians live under “tyranny.”  

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham, said on Monday that the Canadian prime minister made very superficial and unrealistic remarks about Iran, adding that Canada’s conservative government is in fact an “extremist” administration.

“It is most probable that the freedom-seeking gesture of Mr. prime minister is aimed at mustering the votes of Canada-based Iranian community in the upcoming parliamentary elections,” Afkham added.

She emphasized that such an approach to Iranian nationals living in Canada indicates that the Canadian officials are suffering from “egotism” and have an “incorrect assessment” of the Iranian community.

Speaking in a ceremony to mark the Iranian new year, Nowruz, in Vancouver on Saturday, Harper harshly criticized Iran’s policies.

Zion’s Zombie Army: Neo-Zionist zealots attack RadicalPress.com

By
Arthur Topham

“The problem is, The Radical, like D&D, has connections and it has influence.”
– Will Offley, DRY ROT: The Far Right Targets the Left,
Canadian Dimension magazine, Jan/Feb/2001

“It’s the same old story
Everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libelled
I hear words I never heard in the Bible”
Paul Simon, “Keep The Customer Satisfied

Intro

Being a longstanding member of the alternative new media one expects to be subjected to an endless array of vituperation, slander, hate, maligning, slurs, false accusations, etc. It comes with the territory; that being the vast, uncharted landscape known as Truth-revealing.

In the case of RadicalPress.com the assaults upon my then hard copy, bimonthly tabloid known as The Radical (June 1998 to June 2002) began in earnest around the turn of the century approximately two years after I began publishing. By that point in time I had established myself as a rather unique specimen in the then fledgling alternative press.

Here in Canada, as elsewhere within the world’s democracies, the yin/yang nature of the present system of governance inevitably affords the Canadian citizen, taxpayer and voter a “choice” between either a left wing or a right wing style government with either of these variations taking on additional names and identities. The “left”, historically, has been the Liberal Party of Canada and the “right” has operated under the guise of the Conservative Party of Canada throughout its history.

Following the general pattern set around the Western world, by the beginning of the 20th century a new kid suddenly appeared on the political block whose outward appearance and purpose was aimed at garnering the support of the great unwashed masses, the “Proletariat”, many of whom had only recently achieved suffrage. As they became known within the literature of the day this new kid’s schtick was basically the political ideology we understand today as “socialism” although throughout much of its genesis it quickly became co-oped by the Marxist strain that preferred to be known as “communism”.

Those socialist/communist ideals and precepts then became firmly embodied in Canadian politics during the 1930’s when the Western world was being held in thrall to a devastating economic “depression” euphemistically known as the “Dirty Thirties”; a deliberate event brought on by the machinations of the private money lenders (all Jews) who, in 1913, had successfully pulled off the greatest financial coup in world history when they were given a license by the United States government to manufacture fiat currency out of thin air and then lend it out at usurious cost to borrowers.

Concomitant with the surreptitiously gained, carte blanche freedom to create untold wealth (embodied under the false flag tag of the “U.S. Federal Reserve” and later aptly referred to as the Creature from Jekyll Island by the American writer G. Edward Griffin), the “fed” was able to use its ill-gained power to manipulate the stock markets and influence the overall wealth of the nation for good or bad, all dependent upon agenda which this Rothschild cartel clandestinely conspired to author for their own benefit and that of their tribe.

And so out of all this financial intrigue-wreaking economic havoc around the Western world emerged a new “Made in Canada” “left” political party known as the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), led by a man who justifiably may be called the nation’s most truthful, honest and honourable Statesman, Thomas “Tommy” Clement Douglas.

First elected to office in Saskatchewan in 1935 as a CCF member of the House of Commons Tommy then resigned to run for the leadership of the provincial CCF and in 1944 they won an overwhelming majority and his party became the first-ever socialist government in North America. In 1961, the CCF formed the New Democratic Party (NDP) of Canada under Tommy’s leadership and, as they say, the rest is history.

It must be borne in mind though that the Tommy Douglas version of socialism was fundamentally different from that of Canada’s Communist Party which never was able to align its own Marxist-Leninist (Zionist) policies with those of the democratic socialism of either the CCF or, later, the NDP. Douglas had little use for any form of socialism involving people who did little else but sit around talking about Marx or Lenin or Trotsky waited patiently for the next “revolution” to start that would usher in the type of totalitarian Bolshevik government that formed the former Soviet system. Tommy’s socialism was based on Christian principles of brotherhood and helping others less fortunate than oneself rather than following a rigid, dogmatic Marxist/Leninist doctrine.

TommyDouglasPoster1Red

As a result Canada has never had to endure any serious growth of Marxist-style politics (although shades of things to come can be seen in the behaviour of the current Zionist-controlled Harper Conservatives) and what little did develop tended to be isolated pockets of communist ideologues located within fringe areas of cities across the country.

As the interest in The Radical grew, so did the concern of the minority section of the “left” who, up until that point had basically held a monopoly over the type of information being disseminated to the alternative community around the province and the nation. The group fretting over the information being disseminated via The Radical (and believe me it was as broad in scope as humanly possible, covering as many topics as I could squeeze into 24 pages) turned out to be the Marxist-Leninist-Trotskyist-Zionist section of Vancouver’s East Side, an anomalous collective of atheistic, diehard doctrinaire, commissar throwbacks heavily influenced by all the Jewish writers and activists of the past century.

It was this shadowy, serpentine sub-group of Canada’s socialist “left” who were not impressed at all with the new upstart from Quesnel, B.C. who was suddenly cutting a swath, like anarchist Nestor Mahkno’s raiders did through Lenin’s Bolshevik forces after 1917, through their formerly held media territory. The Radical was covering so many different topics that their Leninized heads began spinning with each new edition that hit the streets giving the term “revolution” a whole new meaning; one that was plainly undermining their traditionally calcified, narcissistic and nihilistic world of Marxist mediocrity.

By the end of the year 2000 things came to a head with the zio-Marxists launching their first full-scale attack upon my newspaper and that of a sister publication from out in Nova Scotia known as Discourse and Disclosure run by Sue Potvin and hosting an array of writers and activists who were then aligning themselves with either of our newspapers.

The vehicle for launching their hostile assault was Canadian Dimension (CD) magazine, also a bimonthly “Left” publication that had been in business for around 6 years and displayed strong ties to the old Marxist-Leninist/Zionist left as well as trade unions. From what I could tell it was heavily influenced by Jewish/Zionist writers and staff.

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 6.57.36 PM

Their trigger man for the first volley was a Vancouver-based “researcher and writer” by the name of Will Offley who penned an all-encompassing screed called “DRY ROT: The Far Right Targets the Left”. Its appearance in the January/February 2001 edition of CD set the tone for the future in terms of this Marxist group’s attitude toward Radical Press and their ongoing efforts to marginalize my publication by the use of standard Zionist Jew smear tactics. The article itself is no longer available on the Canadian Dimension website but it is available on RadicalPress.com here.

DryRotOffleyHdr-546x600

As one will note Radical Press is still operating fourteen years later regardless of the relentless attacks by the Zionist forces who continue doing their utmost to control all the political discourse, be on the net or in hard copy alternative publications. Their mask is Zion and their game is always censorship of any anti-Zionist opposing perspectives by any foul means deemed expedient..

HATE IN THE NORTH: Gaily bedight, a not so Gallant knight

Okay, now let’s fast forward to the year 2012. The zionist brainwashed lefties who I’ve coined “neo-Zionists” basically went off my radar screen (with the occasional exception of the Anti-RacistCanada blogsite) after their taskmaster and benefactor, the Jewish masonic B’nai Brith Canada, figured it would be a lot easier to use legislation (contained in the Canadian Human Rights Act which they played a major role in creating after the end of WW2 using the holocaust lie as pretext) to charge me with a sec. 13 “Hate crime”. This allow them to download the responsibility and cost on to the state (and the Canadian taxpayer) who would subsequently take over the harassment and persecution just as they did in all other cases where they didn’t have the courage or integrity to enter into any formal debate on the issues but would rather just label all opposing viewpoints as “hate speech” and have the courts do the dirty work for them. The classic example of this was the Canada’s Jewish lobby’s vile, despicable, traitorous and vicious attacks upon truth revealer Ernst Zundel. One can view his case here to find out the real story about how these hordes of Zion’s Zombies behave when programmed to act as attack dogs for the truth-hating Jews.

GallantFaceofHope 801

Bringing it all down to a local focus, on December 1, 2012 a young man by the name of Daniel Gallant, then completing his Master’s degree in Social Work at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) in Prince George, B.C. (a city about 100 km north of the Quesnel area where I reside), published a short 5-Part series of articles on his website entitled “Hate in the North”. In Part I Gallant introduced himself with the following short statement:

“I am an example of hope, diversity and compassion that can be seen through my work as an anti-racist activist, and a re-formed violent right wing extremist. As a right-wing-skinhead who has committed hundreds of assaults during my time in the white supremacist movement, I believe that my experiences can benefit society by offering insight into hate crimes, and the patterns that surround these violent acts. Over ten years ago I was awakened to a path of redemption and social change through epiphanies at the height of my extremist action.”

Gallant, as he goes to great (one might even say “extreme”) lengths to outline in his autobiographical writings on his websites, tells his readers that he was born into a very dysfunctional family setting and grew up under excruciatingly painful circumstances that resulted in his having to endure all sorts of horrific physical, mental, emotional and spiritual abuse and trauma. The end result of it all landed him in Vancouver, B.C. at the young age of 14 in the very same neighbourhood populated by the fringe lefties who now play a role in this article.

After joining his “neo-Nazi”, “white supremacist” “violent right wing extremist” groups and beating and torturing hundreds of victims this flawed piece of human machinery, either through the grace of God or possibly some other force, finally was able to break free from his bondage to human despair and violence around the time that Israel was destroying the Twin Towers in New York City on September 11th, 2001.

Upon escaping his former fate his road to recovery brought him into contact with a number of remedial groups and agencies and individuals who all had varying degrees of influence on his healing. Foremost was his family connection with First Nations culture stemming from his early childhood out in Alberta. But, as is the case in so many instances of individuals who have suffered extreme trauma in their lives, Daniel Gallant’s road to recovery was fraught with new obstacles and challenges which, as one can see from reviewing his path to the present day, have led him into a new world paradigm that poses as great a challenge as his former incarnation as a “violent right wing extremist neo-Nazi skinhead white supremacist”.

Today Daniel Gallant is on a crusade to make amends for all of his past sins and in doing so he is now being encouraged and supported by yet another group of even more dangerous, fanatical zealots than his former associates, these being the Zionist criminal cartel itself, the world’s foremost problem and threat to global peace and security and the front organization for the Devil himself.

Following his heartfelt confessions (somewhat reminiscent, for those familiar with the Bible, of St. Paul himself), the remainder of Part I focusses on his connections to and interpretations of supposed “violent right wing extremists” and the “white supremacist movement”, both of which are the focus of “a unique and powerful new global force” called the “Against Violent Extremism (AVE) Network” which, as Gallant states, “is managed by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) and is a unique private sector partnership between ISD, Google Ideas, the Gen Next Foundation and Rehab Studio.”and which he is now associated with as well. [all emphasis throughout this article is mine. A.T.]

There is an old saying that one can usually find out a lot about a person by the company they keep so, with that in mind, let’s have a look at some of Daniel Gallant’s new-found “friends” who have been so helpful in supporting and promoting his current mission in life as the new Simon Wiesenthal “neo-Nazi”, “white supremacist”, “violent right wing extremist”, “hate” hunter.

For starters the “Against Violent Extremism Network” offers readers some revealing glimpses into those who are organizing and financing the initiatives that the young Daniel Gallant is involved with.

WeisenfeldPhoto

In the above photo (from Bloomberg) we sees the “rebel” oligarch Lord Arthur George Weidenfeld, President of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and head of the brain trust that’s designing and financing “philanthropic” organizations like the “Against Violent Extremism Network”. As Bloomberg states, “Lord Arthur George Weidenfeld, also known as Lord Weidenfeld of Chelsea, is the Founder and serves as Chairman of Weidenfeld & Nicolson Ltd., a book publisher, since 1948 [subsidiary of The Orion Publishing Group, Ltd. A.T.]. Lord Weidenfeld is the President of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. Lord Weidenfeld serves as Director of Hollinger International Publishing Inc. He serves as director of Jerusalem Post. Lord Weidenfeld is also the Member of Advisory Board of the Telegraph Group Limited and Member of European Advisory Board at Investcorp Bank BSC, Private Equity. He served as a director of Hollinger Inc. from September 1993 to 1995.”

Plainly folks there’s obviously no hidden agenda here. No conspiracy. Just a man of the people dedicating his resources to the endless struggle for truth and social justice; a veritable Gandhi of the Rothschild International banking consortium.

Weidenfeld&Merkel&Kissinger copy

This photo also reveals many more of Daniel Gallant’s benefactors. Unfortunately the picture wasn’t accompanied by a caption so I was unable to identify most of them but as one can see we do have German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former Stasi agent from communist east Berlin, standing with a number of apparently highly influential personages including Lord Weidenfeld (behind her) and the infamous war criminal Henry Kissinger to the right of Weidenfeld. Again, just another group of everyday Joes and a Jane deeply concerned about the state of the world and giving of themselves to improve the plight of humanity.

[Editor’s Note: Since publication of this article I have been furnished with the names of the rest of the people in the photo above. This is a picture taken when Kissinger celebrated his 90th birthday. They are, from left to right, the following German politicians and media bosses: former Minister for Economics and Technology and former Vice-chancellor Philipp Roesler, former Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, former Foreign Minister Hans Dietrich Genscher, Merkel, Weinfeld, in wheelchair former chancellor Helmut Schmidt, former President von Weizsaecker, Kissinger, former Minister of Finance Peer Steinbrueck, wheelchair Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schaeuble, Chief Executive Officer of German media group Axel Springer SE Mathias Döpfner and Chairman of the supervisory board German media group Axel Springer SE Giuseppe Vita]

Next on Daniel Gallant’s friends list we find Google Ideas. Now everyone knows of course that Google is the most powerful Jewish-owned outfit on the cyber block when it comes to the control and dispensation of information and spyware and, being the overlord of the world’s ability to access truthful information, is also vital to the availability of much of the content now processable on the Internet.

Again, nothing unusual here to be concerned with when it comes to open access and freedom of speech and so on. This fact is easily discerned just from viewing the graphic headers on the Google Ideas website and knowing that Google Ideas “explores how technology can enable people to confront threats in the face of conflict, instability and repression. We connect users, experts and engineers to conduct research and seed new technology-driven initiatives.” Most reassuring indeed for individuals and organizations who may wish to avail themselves of such powerful tools in order to search out all those nasty “neo-Nazis” and “white supremacists” and “violent right wing extremists” who are causing so much “conflict, instability and repression” within Google’s domain.

GoogleIdeas2

GoogleIdeas3

Another “unique and powerful new global” friend of Daniel Gallant’s is Gen Next Foundation. Now here’s a group of rebel anarchists if you ever saw one! All smiles and clean-cut, one can rest assured that they would have only the best of philanthropic intentions for the great unwashed masses.

As their Mission states, “The Gen Next Foundation works to create opportunities and confront challenges that face future generations in the areas of education, economic opportunity, and global security.  We aspire to solve the greatest generational challenges of our time using a unique hybrid of private sector and non-profit business models – called a venture philanthropy model.”

GenNextFoundation1 copy

GenNext2

Here, pictured in the photo above, is yet another radical group of bad-assed, Gen Next Generation “neo-Nazi”, “white supremacist” bounty hunters ready to rock ‘n roll and provide all the necessary backup for young, born-again neo-Zionist “hate” detectives like Daniel Gallant and company. I mean a little Saudi (Jew) money doesn’t hurt the cause now does it? As they state on their site, “When private sector and thought leaders turn their attention, time, and revenue towards supporting game-changing, socially impactful projects, the results can shape the future for millions around the world.

In terms of Gen Next Foundation’s issues they focus on the three that “drive prosperity for future generations: Education, Economic Opportunity, and Global Security.” Get it? “Global Security”. . . “Global Security”. . . “Global Security”. . . “Global Security”. And, speaking of Global Security, the Gen Next Foundation has this to say: “Without a stable, safe environment to grow up in, future generations have far less of a chance to achieve their dreams. Overcoming 21st century challenges demand that our nation’s defense apparatus is the most funded, versatile, well trained, respected, and effective in the world.

We must prioritize diplomacy, and present a positive image of the US in the world. By observing trends in instability, violence, and extremism, both in our own neighborhoods and around the globe, we can better understand the roots of these problems, and develop solutions to solve them through community, technology, and other innovative methods.”

And where do we find the sources for their grand ideas? Let’s see. The World Economic Forum, 2014, the Council on Foreign Relations, 2012, and the Pew Research Center, three outstanding, revolutionary organizations all designed to enhance the quality of life for freedom-living working folks everywhere.

In terms of their Ventures “Gen Next Foundation incubates and grows ventures that are often high risk, forward looking, and high impact ideas. Our network guides and effectuates each venture with action groups capable of creative ideation, McKinsey style consulting, and world class execution [no doubt along the lines of Israel’s Mossad. A.T.]. We align private sector leaders, government officials, and NGOs in a Venture Philanthropy model to ensure our ventures have the greatest impact.”

Wikipedia tells us, “McKinsey & Company is a multinational management consulting firm with 108 global offices headquartered in New York City in the United States. It conducts qualitative and quantitative analysis in order to evaluate management decisions. Eighty percent of the world’s largest corporations are consulted by the firm and it is considered the most prestigious management consultancy. McKinsey publishes the McKinsey Quarterly, funds the McKinsey Global Institute research organization, publishes reports on management topics and has authored many influential books on management. Its practices of confidentiality, influence on business practices and corporate culture have experienced a polarizing reception.”

Pretty high-falutin language and projects we’re seeing here coming from all of these international orgs and “management consulting firms”who intend to “engineer” our lives for our own good regardless of what we might think. Why it just send shivers of excitement up one’s spine contemplating all the possibilities in store for the lumpen Proles in the days ahead.

And finally, to conclude this brief look at Daniel Gallant’s allies in the hate-hunting, neo-Nazi, white supremacist business, we best take a quick peek at Rehab Studeo.

RehabStudeo

This is yet another “creative technology company” that provides “digital brand experiences that live online, mobile and in the real world, employing a unique creative process based on the principles of hacking to help clients solve business and communication problems using creativity and technology.” Oi veh! Such a deal for all the Daniel’s of the world who just might want to “hack” into all those “neo-Nazi”, “white supremacist” websites or anyone else who they decide is a threat to their global security interests.

Anyway, so much for some of Daniel Gallant’s benefactors. Now let’s take a look at what he’s saying about yours truly and other truth revealers who have dedicated their lives to outing the ongoing machinations of the globalist elites and see what we might find. Then, I’ll try and summarize my thoughts on why this “example of hope, diversity and compassion” behaves as he does and also analyze why his efforts are both misplaced and detrimental to a truthful understanding of how the world operates and ultimately just a cover up and another false flag designed solely to protect the people that are now manufacturing the “reality” which is leading us all further and further into the realm of a one world global dictatorship so lucidly outlined in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion over a century ago.

Following Part I of Gallant’s general comments on “Hate in the North” he zeroes in on me in Parts II to V by writing the following piece of pro-Zionist propaganda and titling it “Wells, BC, A Home for Hate: Arthur Topham’s Hate and Fear“. Why he chose to include the words “Wells, BC” is open to speculation as I haven’t lived in the town of Wells for forty years and anyone living in the Cariboo who knows me knows that I live in the community of Cottonwood where I’ve resided full time since 1978. The fact that he did use that title came back eventually to bite him in the ass on Facebook and when it did he changed it to Hate in the North (Part II): Arthur Topham.

As well as screwing up on the title he also did the same thing with the url to my website. That, I believe, was intentional on Gallant’s part as he likely didn’t want to give my website any attention other than to provide a pretext for his slander and vilification that it provides to his readership (assuming of course that he has readers. Judging from the number of comments at the end of each of these 5-Part diatribes it doesn’t appear to be many). The addition of “/blog/” to the url to radicalpress.com was an easy way to throw readers off.

Also, it ought to be noted that I had to remove the urls to the three news articles that Gallant posts on his site. Why? Because there is a court order prohibiting me from publishing anything that contains the names of the two traitorous Zionist sycophant sayanim who filed the complaints against me and this included even links to other publications that reveal their names. It’s all justified of course by saying that they are being somehow put “in danger” if I should mention them. It could be misconstrued as a “threat” even. Heaven forbid! Doesn’t matter that all the court documents display their names and either of these entities are known across the country for all their other devious deeds over the past decade and longer and if anyone was to google my name and the charges brought against me that they could easily find out who they are. It’s called Zionese and is a perverse form of legalese.

Here, then, is Gallant’s assessment of myself:

Hate in the North (Part II): Arthur Topham

ATPub+

Quesnel BC’s own white supremacist Arthur Topham:
http://www.radicalpress.com/blog/ real link is: http://www.radicalpress.com/

News articles relating to Arthur Topham:

http://news.nationalpost.com/.… [court order prohibiting publication]
http://www.torontosun.com/.… [court order prohibiting publication]
http://anti-racistcanada.blogspot.ca/.… [court order prohibiting publication]

This local arrest is a very important event. It provides the north with the opportunity to say that we will not tolerate violent extremism in northern BC. No assaults, whether verbal or physical should be encouraged or even permitted. Since I have moved to Prince George four years ago, I have linked the promotion of hate, youth recruitment into hate groups, racist vandalism, and violent extremism that includes explosives/bombs. This is an opportunity for Prince George and the northern region to state the claim that violent extremism is not welcome in our communities.

The online white supremacist chatter is currently running wild. Quesnel, BC, is now on the map as a white supremacist location. Arthur Topham is reported to have been arrested and his house searched by RCMP while hate crimes charges have reportedly been laid. White supremacist websites and discussion forums are expressing support and outrage about Topham’s arrest. Already the defense of free speech is being advocated by Paul Fromm and of course lawyer Doug Christie. This is not the first time Arthur Topham has been the center of online white supremacist discourse. In 2009, Human Rights complaints were lodged against him. The complaints were dismissed due to complex legal issues. However, Topham has now been caught with his ‘cyber-pants down’. It is claimed by Paul Fromm that Doug Christie will be representing Arthur Topham.

If asked, most people would not think that violent extremism is present in the northern part of British Columbia. However, with the actions of several racist-right-wing skinheads and white supremacists the north is seemingly becoming plagued by extremists, just like anywhere else in Canada.

————

So, apart from his first two faux pas, our “example of hope, diversity and compassion” Mr. Daniel Gallant then violates the very foundation of justice as it exists in both natural law and the laws of Canada by automatically assuming I am somehow guilty of the alleged crime of “promoting hate” and goes off on his own ramblings about all the hateful things he’s discovered in the north after living here for the past four years. In Daniel’s guilt-ridden fantasy world where demons run rampant, suddenly the “online white supremacist chatter is currently running wild. Quesnel (formerly Wells), BC, is now on the map as a white supremacist location . . . White supremacist websites and discussion forums are expressing support and outrage about Topham’s arrest” (although none of them are referenced in the article). Paul Fromm and Doug Christie are immediately highlighted and, by association, linked to the alleged “White supremacist websites and discussion forums.”

Next, Gallant, missing his target by only three years, tells readers that I had already been “caught with [my] ‘cyber-pants down’” back in 2009 when a Human Rights complaint was filed against me but that it had been “dismissed due to complex legal issues.” The truth of course is that the Section 13 complaint was filed back in 2007 and wasn’t stayed until June 26th, 2014 when Section 13 was officially repealed by the federal government a year and a half after Gallant wrote his little hate propaganda piece. So much for referencing his work with factual information.

Part III of Gallant’s pentagon of pathetic Zionist propaganda, titled “Ideological Glance” is another feeble and fruitless attempt to vilify the likes of former columnist for the North Shore News in Vancouver, B.C. Doug Collins; to refute the truth found in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion; to malign James Keegstra and and Ernst Zundel; and to defend the greatest hoax of the 20th century, i.e., the lie that 6 million Jews were gassed and fried in ovens in German work camps during WWII.

DOUG COLLINS PATRIOT

Part IV of Gallant’s mini-series on Machiavellian methods for maligning the enemies of Zion titled “Perversion of Rights” consists of another five paragraphs of slurs, half-truths, outright lies and defamation of both Paul Fromm and Douglas Christie that culminate in accusations of pre-meditated intent on the part of these two Canadian patriots to promote “genocide, atrocity and harm to those who are implicated in the ‘Zionist conspiracy’; which includes ‘race-mixers’, ‘race-traitors’ and most citizens.”

Part V titled “White Lies” is, like all of the other parts, a scrambled, incoherent, convoluted and pathetic attempt to present a hodge podge of lies, assumptions and worn-out Zionist cliches as an intelligent appraisal of Gallant’s misguided belief that anyone who disagrees with the Jewish interpretation of history must, automatically, be labeled either a “neo-Nazi” or a “white supremacist” and a “hater”. I will quote in full the two paragraphs that comprise this final segment of Gallant’s smear campaign against myself and my associates so that readers can see for themselves how transparent, ridiculous, puerile and psychotic this individual’s reasoning truly is. Pay particular attention to the sentence in bold where the writer attempts to wax eloquent on the subject of eugenics.

“In addition to the conspiracy oriented backbone of the white supremacist worldview there is another likewise problematic misconception. This is the notion of racial purity and the links biology has to culture. Eugenics based science/theory, which is archaic in its development, and the belief that biological determinism is one of the crux of white supremacist idealism speaks to the lens of these pseudo-intellectual lenses. We as a collective society now understand that race and biology do not determine socialization. Socio-cultural dynamics which include intelligence, deviance and criminality are referenced throughout much of the right-wing doctrine as being linked directly to physiology and biology. This biologically determined belief structure is not only archaic, but de-bunked as a science. As indicated by UNBC professor and scholar Michelle Bouchard race is a social construct and what people typically refer to as ‘race’ does not actually exist genetically in a solidified and quantitative manner.

Loose connections are the root of white supremacist doctrine and propaganda. Extremists from the right wing agenda, like Arthur Topham, regurgitate distasteful, hurtful and violent messages, which are rooted in half-baked pseudo-intellectualism. These individuals are not tucked away into the corners of society and hidden away. They work in your schools, courtrooms, universities and construction sites. It is my goal to include, in this blog, insight into who some of these people are; and what they are up to. It is my hope to inform those from the extreme-far-right, that there is a way out of the misconceptions of their indoctrination; all while promoting compassion and solidarity amongst our collective human experience in order to decrease the amount of abuse and oppression that occurs in our country, our cities, our streets, our institutions, our homes and most importantly in our minds.”

Okay. That more or less summarizes my comments on Gallant’s little 5-pack attack piece on myself, RadicalPress.com and friends and associates of freedom. It’s so redundant and oh so reminiscent for truth revealers everywhere of the stereotypical, nauseating ADL hit pieces that gush forth incessantly from the dark and dank underground recesses of B’nai Brith’s cesspool of slander and calumny, the Anti-Defamation League.

What my research of Gallant’s sites tells me (coupled with a few written exchanges on Facebook back in 2013) is that his behaviour, in light of his past trauma, explains to a great degree how the outcome of such a life provides the perfect breeding ground for New World Order psychopaths like the Zionist Jews who are always vigilant when it comes to seeking out traumatized individuals who can then be mind-controlled into performing the type of tasks that Daniel Gallant is now undertaking and who can then provide the necessary feigned sympathy and empathy followed by encouragement and training and public exposure and positive attention in order to gain a recruit who will then serve their interests and be a willing, goyim spokesperson for their NWO agenda.

Enter Joey Only – rebel anarchist and purveyor of Zionist Jew myths

Ignorance copy 2

Now like many minds shaped by trauma and pain Daniel Gallant is persistent in his efforts to expose those who his “demons” tell him are “neo-Nazis” and “white supremacists” and through such persistence he eventually was able to capture the attention of another young and foolish lad and a newcomer to the small town of Wells which has been an integral part of the local Cariboo social and cultural network for decades.

Wells,BC

Joey Only might properly be called a reluctant musician and singer/songwriter if one was to take to heart his autobiographical writings found at https://joeyonly.wordpress.com/. An easterner who eventually migrated out west in the fall of 2002 Joey, like his newly acquired friend and protege Daniel Gallant, also spend time in East Vancouver, Daniel beating up drunks and people of colour and Joey playing gigs in and around Vancouver’s “Left” music scene trying to build up a reputation as a ‘the radical folk singer’.

Eventually, after a number of years working with the Marxist-Leninist crowd in Vancouver, Joey became disenchanted and decided to head north to the Yukon where he set up shop in the local bars of Whitehorse there forming his “Outlaw Band” in the spring of 2006. Joey and his band worked hard to establish a reputation and earn a living and in the process he eventually morphed into a more western-style, frontier-type, back to the country (punk?) image. After a few years on the road Joey quit the music scene and in 2009, as he says, “due to personal disillusionment, moved to Wells took it easy, started a family and soon got a brand new ass kicking band together.”

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 6.12.19 PM

Like his newly acquired side-kick Daniel Gallant, Joey appears to be a rather introspective type; a poet and songwriter; one of the common folk and, professedly, a fierce opponent of any and all forms of injustice. Politically he espouses what he believes to be an anarchist perspective. In his younger years it appears he was also active in the Christian church. All fine and good.

Now around the end of February, Joey began suffering from a northern malady that we in the area refer to as “cabin fever blues”which is common throughout the Cariboo and other wintery type regions of the world where the short days and minimal sunlight tend to bring a person down. It was around this same period of darkness and depression that Daniel Gallant’s serpentine efforts on behalf of his Zionist taskmasters to work his venom into Joey’s mind finally had the desired effect. The result was Joey Only decided that he too had to do something about that “neo-Nazi”, “white supremacist” Arthur Topham, the “racist, hate-mongering anti-Semitic Jew-hater” who was giving Joey’s new town of Wells, a bad reputation as “A Home for Hate” and so on February 24th, 2015 he posted the following hit piece on his Facebook page:

Joey Onley
February 24 at 3:03pm

“So I gotta open up this can of worms…a friend of mine told me today they were scared to come to Wells because they read this article posted below some time ago and then shared it with me. I have to say I love this town so much that I can’t stand to see something like this. So I appreciate what Daniel Gallant, the author, is trying to do in exposing a neo-Nazi peice[sic] of alcoholic trash like Arthur Topham but I can’t approve of it as it’s unfactual and unfair. I want the article removed!
Arthur Topham doesn’t live in Wells and I don’t think anyone in this town would have any use for the pro-Hitler crap that spews from his rotten head. He lives the better part of an hour west of us and most people here have never heard of his name. I love this town and I believe we are a very progressive artistic, sensible and inclusive community, probably the shining light in the north. It hurts me to think that someone I care about would be afraid to visit me because they got the impression we are some kind of neo-nazi flag waving town.
If you feel so moved to help defend our towns reputation against such spurious accusations please do two things. Read this article and post a comment to Daniel explaining why you don’t believe it’s fair to muddy our little mountain towns name…and secondly when you see Arthur Topham in the liqour store remind him he’s a peice[sic] of shit nazi scumbag who our grandfathers would have shot…so not to bother visiting Wells. When insane neo-nazi rantings from someone we don’t even know come back to shame our town I get a different kind of angry as we are nothing like this. I never met this Arthur guy but if I recognize him in town I promise I won’t mence[sic] words in expressing my dissaproval[sic]!
Now let me post in the comments some of Arthur Tophams horrific works. This stuff makes me want to puke.”

Apart from the sudden realization that I was an “alcoholic” the rest of Joey’s gush of slanderous disparagement was typical of the anti-racist, brain-dead zombies who the Zionists manage to sway in one way or another to perform their malicious smear campaigns for them.

OnlyAccuser

Three days later, he posted the following:

Joey Onley
February 27 at 5:22pm

“Receiving threats and harrassment from Arthur Tophams camp this afternoon. It is to be expected. I’m aware my physical safety is at risk for speaking out against local white supremacists.”

More lies. Having thus made his initial false accusations Only then proceeded to cried wolf about me making threats to him in order to give the impression to his friends (many of whom were my “friends” and my wife’s “friends” as well) that on top of being all those terrible things that Daniel Gallant had stated about me I was also a dangerous man who was now threatening him (he didn’t elaborate on what type of threat it was) with some form of violence in retaliation for Only having “outed” me.

The immediate effect of course was that my family was deeply incensed by his slanderous actions and crude, foul-mouthed insults and that he would have the chutzpah to pull off such a cheap stunt before people in our own local community who we had known and respected for decades.

As for all of our Facebook “friends” who were privy to Only’s remarks none of them (to my knowledge) displayed the courage or strength of character to speak up on my behalf or my wife’s behalf in the comment section below his post and chastise him for his callous and uncalled for behaviour. In that sense, I suppose, Joey’s outburst of lies about me was a good thing in that it exposed to the Facebook world of make-believe “friends” the depth of sincerity of those who had previously feigned a cordial countenance toward us in the past and once again reconfirmed the old adage “with friends like that who needs enemies”.

Summary

Thus one sees how the effect of the Daniel Gallants of the world serve the power elite who depend upon their Zionized zombies to do their dirty work for them by spreading lies and gossip that in turn facilitate greater and greater dissension among those who are already mentally taxed by the volume and magnitude of deception that has permeated the mindset of the younger generations.

The Daniel Gallants and the Joey Onlys of the world are, in many ways, caught between two worlds. Having been subjected all their lives to endless Zionist propaganda promulgated by the Jew-controlled media since 1933 their mental hard drive or database has been so thoroughly infected by the duplicitous virus of Zionist “Left” chicanery that it becomes virtually impossible (or inconceivable) for them to understand how their cultural and intellectual mindset has been so saturated with meme after meme of Germanophobic hate-mongering that by the time they’ve reached adulthood their minds are already captive making them ripe for further mind-control and manipulation as soon as they dare venture into that great arena for social change – politics and political activism.

The case of Daniel Gallant is rather unique in some respects. His early life of trauma is a classic example of the type of MK-Ultra tactics that former victim of the CIA’s “Project Monarch” mind-control operation, Kathy O’Brien describes in her 1995 book TRANCE FORMATION of AMERICA. Gallant, now that he’s fallen into the hands of the same manipulators his work becomes all the more relevant in terms of its planned objectives which are to dispense deception for the greater good of Israel and the Zionist agenda.

TranceformO'brienFinal 2

As I was finishing off this article I revisited Joey Only’s Facebook page to see if anything had changed and while scrolling down his page realized that he had deleted his February 24 post. Fortunately I had copied and saved all the relevant information. Was it remorse that moved him to take it down? Was it the fact that others had approached him off Facebook and told him that he was way off track in making such outlandish statements about someone they had know for years? Was it because Only actually took the time to investigate further who I really was? Or was it for some other unknown reason? Possibly he realized what a fool he’d made of himself and didn’t want the post to stand as reminder. Only Only knows why and thus far he hasn’t had the honesty or integrity to speak about it. It needs to be noted though that he still has the post up where he accuses me of harassing and threatening him so whatever his motives were in removing the post they remain suspect.

In a second article related to Daniel Gallant I will focus more directly on his accusations that I’m a “neo-Nazi” and a “white supremacist”. There I hope to be able to provide sufficient evidence to show that his deliberate smear campaign has no substance whatsoever and all he is doing is the acting as a sayan for the state of Israel and the Rothschild Zionist criminal cartel.

PM announces anti-terrorism measures to protect Canadians from the Prime Minister’s Office

Editorial Comment: 

“Although not part of this proposed legislation, we are also working with communities to prevent radicalization and intervene when individuals show signs of becoming radicalized.”

~PM Stephen Harper, announcing government’s anti-terrorism measures 

Don’t you just love it when politicians decide that, along with filling everyone’s head with fear and loathing about “terrorism” after it was their own stupid, ill-conceived decisions that created the very atmosphere now conducive to its apparent manifestation, that on top of all their terror propaganda, they’re also going to attempt something even more insidious and further brainwash communities across Canada into preventing “radicalization” through more state sanctioned intervention whenever “individuals show signs of becoming radicalized.”!

Can anyone say “chutzpah”? It sounds a lot like “idiot” or “fool” or “bigot” or “hypocrite” or even something far more deadly like “psychopath”.

Back in the year 1998 when I first registered my company name as “The Radical Press” I did so with a full understanding of just what the word “radical” actually means based upon the Concise Oxford Dictionary:

RadicalMeaning copy

Being an alternative news magazine that was started in order to combat the growing disinformation trends and increasing censorship already present in Canada even before 9/11 I decided that the word “radical” was perfectly suited for what I planned to do which was to cover the issues and stories that the mainstream media either refused to print or purposely printed with a biased slant. At the time I had no understanding of the magnitude of the Zionist threat to global peace and harmony but I did know that when it came to telling the whole truth that something was definitely missing in the corporate media. The heading of my very first edition of The Radical made my position perfectly clear.

RP1stEdition copy 3

 Once the company was registered I began publishing a monthly 24-page tabloid called “The Radical”. Eventually the motto for the newspaper became, “Digging to the root of the issues” which is precisely what the original Latin word “radix” meant, i.e. root.

Now, seventeen years later, along comes MP Stephen Harper, sycophant supreme of the world’s greatest terrorist nation in the world, Israel and like Israel’s PM Netanyahu, both of these so-called “leaders” are guilty of war crimes against the Palestinian people and many other nations throughout the Middle East. In Harper’s case he’s also guilty of war crimes against the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria as well and now he’s going to try and bring in more repressive, draconian, Zionist-sponsored criminal legislation ostensibly designed to curtail any further “terrorist” attacks upon Canadian soil; attacks that, like the Charlie Hebdo affair in Paris, wreak of the stench associated with false flag staged events designed solely to exacerbate “fear” and justify not only greater repression and police state surveillance but also the phoney “War on Terror” that both Israel and its Zionist occupied US government have been fomenting full time since they pulled off the greatest false flag event of the 21st century (thus far) – 9/11.

Who are these bumbling buffoons to start messing with our language and changing the meanings of words so that their original sense is lost and people start thinking robotically in Orwellian double-speak. “WAR IS PEACE”, “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY”,”IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”. I, and my readership, were well aware of the true meaning of “radicalization” a helluva long time before these lizards started slithering out of their troglodyte caves at the behest of a foreign and racist state to begin their salami tactics of slicing away our rights and freedoms then telling us how much better off we were because of it. We may not have had all the vernacular down pat back then and lacked a full understanding of what the word “ZIONISM” truly meant but we had little problem staring into the face of Evil and knowing it for what it was. Looking at the September 1999 edition of the newspaper we see the following headline:

Radicalizing the Electorate copy 2

At the time I was still equating the corruption with “Nazis” because of my own brainwashing but it wasn’t that long before my German readership straightened me out on that error and set me on the proper path to eventual enlightenment.

So here we are sixteen years after that 1999 edition and PM Harper is planning to introduce more Big Brother laws that will penalize the “radicalization” of Canadians so that they will be unable to learn who the REAL terrorists are in this country.

It’s sickening. Their methodology is so Zionist. So draconian. So Bolshevik. So Talmudic. So Marxist Communist in its design and planned implementation. So starkly corrupt and deceptive. So blatantly hypocritical, arrogant and self-righteous in its nefariousness. So disgustingly transparent and ugly in its motives. So totalitarian in its overall design. And yet, for all of these grotesque, immoral, criminal and undemocratic acts of subversion all of Canada’s other federal political parties (with the exception of the Canadian Action Party) will undoubtedly fall in line with the Zionist subterfuge that’s going down and “stand with Harper” on these proposed infringements on our civil liberties regardless of the wickedness and evil intent contained in all his government does.

I, and many other Canadians, saw this coming years, if not decades ago. Hard hitting journalists like Robin Mathews were already exposing the infrastructure of a growing tyranny months in advance of September 11, 2001. The Radical was doing its job and doing it well. We were digging and digging and digging, scraping off the overburden of deception and lies, uprooting the issues and exposing the dark underside of an evil that’s only now beginning to be realized by greater numbers of Canadians thanks to the Internet. And we were able to do it because the real enemy, Zionism, still was in the planning stages of 9/11 and hadn’t quite got their act together in order to fabricate their “War on Terror” so they could then go on the attack against our hotly contested “Freedom of Speech” now being jeopardized by the forces who’ve so quickly instituted the present Zionist dictatorship since 2011 with Harper and his hounds from Hell leading the charge (right behind Israel and the USA) into their New World Order nightmare of endless fear and hate and war.

Police StateRP

The blood sacrificing for Zion has to end and end soon. The root of all of our present evil is found in the warmongering Zionist mindset, be it Jewish or Gentile. Its exposure is assured so long as we can hang on to our right to freedom of expression on the net. Without that right we will be forced into avenues of dissent that could very likely turn violent as protests and other “radical” forms of resistance become outlawed by the traitors now in control of our governments throughout the West.

We will prevail. We WILL continue to radicalize the electorate. We must. For the sake of all that’s right and just and beautiful and worthy of living for we have to continue to struggle against this Evil that’s now gotten out of hand.

PM announces anti-terrorism measures to protect Canadians

January 30, 2015
Richmond Hill, Ontario

Introduction

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today announced that the Government has introduced legislation to protect Canadians from the evolving threat of terrorism and keep our communities safe. The Prime Minister made the announcement at Richmond Hill’s Bayview Hill Community Centre. He was joined by Peter MacKay, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, and Julian Fantino, Associate Minister of National Defence.

The world is a dangerous place and, as most brutally demonstrated by last October’s attacks in Ottawa and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Canada is not immune to the threat of terrorism. The proposed legislation will provide Canadian law enforcement and national security agencies with additional tools and flexibility to keep pace with evolving threats and better protect Canadians here at home.

In line with measures taken by our allies, the Government is taking additional action to ensure our law enforcement and national security agencies can: counter those who advocate terrorism; prevent terrorist travel and the efforts of those who seek to use Canada as a recruiting ground; and disrupt planned attacks on Canadian soil.

The proposed legislation includes checks and balances to ensure it respects the rights of Canadians and complements other legislation passed by our Government in order to better protect Canadians and secure institutions, including the Combating Terrorism Act and the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act.

Quick Facts

The proposed legislation includes a comprehensive package of measures that will:

•  criminalize the advocacy or promotion of terrorism offences in general;

•  counter terrorist recruitment by giving our courts the authority to order the removal of terrorist propaganda online;

•  enhance the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS)’s powers to address threats to the security of Canada while ensuring that courts maintain oversight;

•  provide law enforcement agencies with enhanced ability to disrupt terrorism offences and terrorist activity;

•  enhance the Passenger Protect Program by further mitigating threats to transportation security and preventing travel by air for the purpose of engaging in terrorism;

•  make it easier for law enforcement agencies to detain suspected terrorists before they can harm Canadians and to toughen penalties for violating court ordered conditions on terrorist suspects;

•  enable the effective and responsible sharing of relevant national security information across federal departments and agencies to better identify and address threats;

•  Although not part of this proposed legislation, we are also working with communities to prevent radicalization and intervene when individuals show signs of becoming radicalized.

•  ensure that national security agencies are better able to protect and use classified information when denying entry and status to non-citizens who pose a threat to Canada; and,

•  provide witnesses and other participants in national security proceedings and prosecutions with additional protection.

Quotes

“Our Government is serious about taking action to keep Canadians safe. Recent attacks in Canada, which led to the deaths of Corporal Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, as well as attacks in France and Australia, are reminders that the world is a dangerous place and that Canada is not immune to the threat of terrorism. Recent terrorist actions in Canada are not only an attack on our country, but also our values and our society as a whole.” – Prime Minister Stephen Harper

“Our Government understands that extreme jihadists have declared war on us, on all free people, and on Canada specifically. Our Government will continue to protect the rights and safety of all Canadians. We will not, however, privilege the so-called rights of terrorists and others who would harm Canadians over the rights of law-abiding citizens. The proposed legislation would provide our security and law enforcement agencies with the required tools and flexibility they need to effectively detect and disrupt national security threats before they happen, keeping Canadians safe.” – Prime Minister Stephen Harper

It is John Baird who needs to apologize to the Palestinian people

by 

Dr. Sa’eb Erekat

 Dr. Sa'eb Erakat PLO Negotiator

 January 16, 2015

A spokesman for Canadian foreign minister John Baird asked me to apologize to the Israeli government, citing the equivalency I drew between the terror of the self-styled “Islamic State” and that of Israeli settlers who under the banner of a “Jewish State,” and with the backing of their government, have been in a campaign of terror that include the burning of mosques and churches, the destruction of olive groves and the brutal murder of Palestinian civilians.

BairdZioServant

After spending the past few years listening to Mr. Baird going out of his way to legitimize the banality and brutality of a 50-year-old Israeli occupation, I tell Mr. Baird: enough. If there is anyone that has to apologize, it is Mr. Baird himself. He should first apologize to his own citizenry, many of whom are God-loving Jews, Christians and Muslims who would never condone nor cheer for an Israeli government that stretches support to Israeli settlers who attack churches and mosques.

Mr. Baird should apologize for his active encouragement of Israel’s brute and ugly occupation and its apartheid policies. He should apologize for failing to promote those things Canadians hold dear such as freedom, dignity and human rights and for replacing those ideals with an outspoken support of Israel’s clear and undisputed violations of international law.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Foreign Minister Baird were elected at a time when the most right-wing extremist government in the history of Israel was elected. Instead of using their sympathies and working relations with Israel to promote peace, they decided to side with those policies which the entire world – including the United States of America – have rejected. Its outspoken support of Israel’s policies has placed Canada in an awkward position within the United Nations system and has radically altered its standing and image in the Arab and Muslim worlds.

The Palestinian leadership has been engaged in a diplomatic effort to obtain those very same ideals Canadians hold dear – to achieve freedom and dignity. We have been working tirelessly to exercise our right to self-determination and establish a state of our own – a state that lives in peace and security with its neighbours, including Israel. But we repeatedly face a stumbling block in the form of an Israeli government more interested in the consolidation of its illegal settlement build-up, rather than in achieving peace with its neighbours.

Against this background, we have tried to widen our political horizon, not through violence, nor through terror, but by employing the tools available to us under international law. Instead of rewarding the Palestinians for their insistence on pursuing peace and for their deep commitment to the stability and security of the region, Mr. Baird has chosen to deride and stand against Palestinians at every corner.

When the UN in 2012 upgraded Palestine’s status from an observer entity to an observer state, it was not the Israeli Foreign Minister who travelled to New York in order to defend Israel’s position; unfortunately, it was Mr. Baird. Though his efforts were and remain largely ineffective (the resolution passed with an overwhelming majority of 138, with only 9 voting against), they came as a slap in the face to Palestinian efforts. Canada also lobbied against our UNESCO membership, a move aimed at protecting and preserving sites of universal value, such as the Nativity Church and the Roman terraces of the village of Battir. Last November, Canada was one of six countries voting against several UN resolutions requesting an Israeli withdrawal from occupied Palestine, and reaffirming the illegality of Israeli policies including the annexation of Occupied East Jerusalem. The six were Canada, the United States, Micronesia, Palau, the Marshall Islands and Israel.

As a matter of fact, while the whole of the international community condemns Israel for its systematic policy of demolishing Palestinian homes and forcibly displacing Palestinians in Occupied East Jerusalem, Mr. Baird has decided to legitimize Israel’s illegal, de facto annexation of the city by meeting an Israeli minister in Occupied East Jerusalem.

While more than a thousand Palestinian civilians were being slaughtered in Gaza, Canada was among the very few countries that encouraged Israel to continue its attack on the besieged territory. Amnesty International had to remind Mr. Baird that “Canadian policy must reflect unwavering commitment to the fundamental international legal principle of civilian protection and must demonstrate equal concern for both Israeli and Palestinian civilians.” Mr. Baird has utterly failed to shape his policy in this way.

But Palestinian lives evidently do not concern Mr. Baird. Yes, those Israeli terrorists who burned alive 16-year-old Muhammad Abu Khdeir in Jerusalem are no different from those Islamic State terrorists who beheaded Steven Sotloff in Syria. Those who actively burn mosques and churches in Palestine, and campaign to destroy the Al Aqsa Mosque, are no less terrorists than those who kicked the Christians out of Mosul. But Canada, instead of supporting the application of international law, has decided to encourage Israel to continue with its crimes. As I stated in a letter to Mr. Baird after his meeting in Occupied East Jerusalem: “Canada’s actions are tantamount to complicity in ongoing Israeli violations of the international laws of war.”

Let2BairdPLO

We know that the majority of Canadian citizens disagree with their current leadership’s position vis-à-vis Palestine. Some are silent, but others have made their opinions clear, including the thousands who took to the streets of Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec calling for a just and lasting peace.

Mr. Baird is first and foremost doing his country a disservice by contravening its deep commitment to international law and human rights. He is also doing the region a disservice by supporting those forces standing firmly against peace.

Mr. Baird should apologize: It’s never too late!

U of Toronto Aids Canada’s Zionist Attack on Iran

January 7, 2015
The Canadian Government Funds the Peter Munk-Adnan Khashoggi School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto to Engage in Cyberwarfare on the Islamic Republic of Iran

 An Open Letter to U of Toronto President Meric S. Gertler

Dr. and Prof. Meric S. Gertler,
President, University of Toronto
Dear Dr. Gertler:

(7 Jan. 2015) – I spoke earlier today to your executive assistant expressing my consternation that my Alma Mater, the University of Toronto, (Ph.D., History, 1984) is involved through the Munk School of Global Affairs in a federally-funded initiative that adds to the list of serious international aggressions aimed at the Islamic Republic of Iran in recent years. I find it highly unfortunate and disreputable for the University of Toronto to be aiding and abetting what could be conceived as illegal acts circumventing principles of the national sovereignty and international treaties to which Canada is a party.

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 9.19.47 AM

As you know the Canadian government severed diplomatic relations with Iran in 2012. Under these conditions what the Canadian government and the Munk School describes as “direct diplomacy” can be interpreted as part of a concerted attempt to bring about illegal regime change encouraging sedition in a country with frequent and consequential national elections unlike many of the national polities in the region with whom the Canadian government does have diplomatic relations. These diplomatic relations extend to oversight of arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the other Persian Gulf sheikhdoms.

The Islamic Republic has endured many acts of war including the Israeli-American Stuxnet attacks on Iran’s nuclear energy facilities, repeated assassinations of its nuclear scientists, attacks from Israeli and US-backed terrorist groups including MeK, as well as economic warfare based on specious rationals and justifications cloaked in the language of so-called “sanctions.”

Much of this history is described by Dr. Gareth Porter in Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare (Charlottesville Virginia: Just World Book, 2014).

I was able to discuss the book’s contents directly with Dr. Porter when I was in Tehran in late September and early October of 2014 as a Canadian delegate at the New Horizon 2nd International Conference of Independent Thinkers and Film Makers.

Interestingly after making his featured presentations debunking the lies and concocted information fed through agencies like the Munk Centre on the Iranian nuclear program, Dr. Porter chose to criticize some aspects of the conference on BuzzFeed, the same news site utilized by the Israeli government and the Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird, in advertising their shared positions.

I note that Minister Baird sees the highly politicized funding to the University of Toronto through the Munk School of Global Affairs as part of Canadian foreign policy initiative directed at “restrictive and repressive environments.”

This characterization seems inconsistent with my experience as a Canadian delegate at a recent conference in Tehran which was far more open to free ranging discussion among experts in their field than anything I could imagine taking place in the repressive intellectual atmosphere of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Canada these days. I doubt if the University of Toronto as presently constituted could have hosted anything as erudite and uncensored as the New Horizon proceedings.

In this country the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and the big media cartels, but especially the Globe and Mail, CTV and the media chain owned by Golden Tree Asset Management in New York, are not free and open environments for broad-ranging discussion from a wide variety of perspectives on current events.

In fact we tend to get constant rehashing of the same set of narrow Israeliocentric interpretations of Canada’s role in the international community as regularly spun out by Prof. Janice Gross Stein and her accomplices at the Munk School of Global Affairs.

The Munk school is the recent creation of Peter Munk whose amassment of a huge fortune is dripping with dark infamy. It is hardly surprising that Mr. Munk seems so desperate to try to buy his way to respectability in order to escape the from the dirt of his financial machinations in the bloody gold mining of Africa and South America as well as in his well-known former partnership with the notorious Saudi Arabian arm’s merchant, Adnan Khashoggi.

Ironically Mr. Munk’s partner was exposed in selling arms to the Islamic Republic of Iran through Israel as revealed in part in the Iran-Contra scandal. The irony of the Munk School’s new variation on the current extension of the Iran-Contra is worthy of note. So too is the willingness of the ethically challenged University of Toronto to accept funding from apparently any questionable source no matter how drenched in dubious dealings.

Prof. Stein refers to federal funding for “a digital public square… designed for citizens who cannot come together in safety to exchange ideas about the future of their country.” Unfortunately this phrase can be appropriately applied to Canada under the oppressiveness of the Harper-Baird regime, an election-fraud government whose policies are actively promoted by the University of Toronto through the Munk den of political manipulators and spin doctors.

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 9.20.29 AM

The failure of academic freedom in Canada, for instance, is on international display in the firing of tenured full professor of Physics, Denis Rancourt, formerly of the University of Ottawa. Prof Rancourt has been the target of University of Ottawa president Allan Rock who makes clear the priority the former Liberal cabinet minister attaches to his own political commitment to the Zionist ideology of the Jewish state above all else. The repressiveness of Canada is expressed through existing and forthcoming so-called hate speech laws about to be tested in the trial of RadicalPress.com publisher Arthur Topham.

Clearly Press TV based in Tehran provides a venue for free and open debate concerning many topics, including the domestic and international politics of Canada, that is far more open and uncensored than the narrow range of discourse allowed on venues like the state broadcasting corporation the CBC, The Globe and Mail and the National Post. While I am not arguing that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is perfect in every respect, I know of no human rights violations there that even approaches the scale of the Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women Scandal in Canada which the Harper-Baird regime has repeatedly and explicitly refused to investigate formally.

Screen Shot 2015-01-09 at 9.20.43 AM

The University of Toronto should not be meddling in the internal politics of any sovereign country including the Islamic Republic of Iran. If my Alma Mater insists on taking some action to improve the tone and substance Canadian-Iranian relations, it should be by bringing pressure on the Canadian government to restore formal diplomatic relations with Iran.

Yours Sincerely,

Anthony J. Hall

Looking for a way to talk to Iran, Ottawa backs ‘direct diplomacy’

KIM MACKRAEL

OTTAWA — The Globe and Mail
Published Tuesday, Jan. 06 2015

Ottawa is putting more money into a project aimed at communicating directly with Iranian citizens as it looks to apply a similar strategy in other countries including Russia and parts of Iraq and Syria.

The Conservative government is set to announce new funding on Tuesday for a “direct diplomacy” project run by the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs.

First launched during the lead-up to Iran’s 2013 presidential elections, the project was touted as a method for bypassing Tehran and offering a platform for dissidents and human-rights activists in the country.

The expansion of the direct diplomacy project comes as other countries, including the United States and Britain, seek to re-engage with the Iranian government.

Since the project’s launch, the Munk School has developed online tools such as the Rouhani Meter, which tracks which reform promises have been fulfilled by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and the Majlis Monitor, which attempts to measure the performance of Iranian parliamentarians.

The project, called the Global Dialogue on the Future of Iran, also provides technology designed to get around online censorship, and has launched YouTube and Twitter accounts in Farsi.

Janice Stein, professor at the Munk School, said the next phase will involve the creation of a “digital public square” that will bring together the tools that have already been established, create new ones and expand the project’s reach into other countries and regions.

“It’s about making space for multiple narratives, it’s about making space for different voices,” Ms. Stein said. “And it is a strongly held proposition, supported by a lot of good research, that societies who make space for a variety of voices do better at almost everything.”

A Canadian government official said that while Iran would remain a focal point for the digital diplomacy project, its expansion would allow the Munk School to look at other locations where a similar strategy could be used, such as Russia and Islamic State-controlled regions of Iraq and Syria.

The official said future projects could include platforms to help people access restricted websites and generate “counter-narratives” that could challenge the message of a repressive regime.

Critics of the approach have argued that Ottawa has focused too much on circumventing Tehran and should look instead at reopening the Canadian embassy and establishing a dialogue with Mr. Rouhani’s government. Canada suspended diplomatic ties with Iran in 2012.

Ms. Stein said she doesn’t view her school’s efforts and traditional diplomacy as mutually exclusive.
She said some of the tools the Munk School has developed include technology that can be used to get around a firewall, allowing people to access websites they might otherwise be barred from.

The focus of the project will continue to be Iran, but there is “lots of discussion” about working in Russia, Ms. Stein said, adding that journalists and civil society groups in that country are increasingly at risk.
In western Syria and northern Iraq, Ms. Stein said there may be opportunities to help people in Islamic State-controlled areas to access the Internet safely and communicate with each other.

Canadian government pledges $9M in efforts to circumvent other countries Internet censorship
Republish Reprint

Stewart Bell | January 6, 2015 4:56 PM ETMore from Stewart Bell | @StewartBellNP

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced the start of The Digital Public Square, at The University of Toronto’s, The Munk School of Global Affairs, in Toronto, Tuesday January 6, 2015.

TORONTO — The Canadian government expanded its “direct diplomacy” efforts on Tuesday, pledging $9-million for a project that aims to help citizens circumvent Internet restrictions imposed by their governments.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said the partnership with the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs would open up online spaces for political dialogue within “restrictive and repressive environments.”

Building on an existing initiative focused exclusively on Iran, the project would “increase digital space for free expression,” allowing citizens to stay informed, share their opinions and advocate for their rights, he said.

“We believe that citizens of all countries must be able to express themselves freely, to hold their governments to account as well as to exchange information and ideas,” the minister said, announcing the funding at the Munk School.

“The internet is a game-changing technology on these issues. It has the ability to empower individuals more than any other technology before it. This scares some people in power and so regimes around the world.”

In its latest annual report on Internet freedom, the U.S.-based non-profit Freedom House said it had declined in 2014 for the fourth consecutive year as online censorship and monitoring became increasing aggressive and sophisticated.

Countries were “rapidly adopting new laws that legitimize existing repression and effectively criminalize online dissent,” it said. As a result, more people than ever were being arrested for the things they had posted online.

“Blocking and filtering — once the most widespread methods of censorship — are still very common, but many countries now prefer to simply imprison users who post undesirable content, thereby deterring others and encouraging self-censorship,” it said.

Prof. Janice Gross Stein of the Munk School said the government funding would finance a “digital public square … designed for citizens who cannot come together in safety to exchange ideas about the future of their country.”

The school also plans to conduct online polling on issues and report the results. “Why does that matter? Because they cannot come together in safe and open discussion to talk about what their fellow citizens think and to share ideas. That’s such a fundamental right, it’s so important to the fabric of our life in this country that we take it for granted, but it’s not something that many, many, many around the world share.”

Mr. Baird did not list the countries that could be targeted by the project, but Freedom House said the biggest crackdowns on online freedom had occurred in Russia and Turkey.

“Just this weekend there were reports of a Russian store clerk being investigated by Russian authorities simply because she was open minded enough to share links to a couple of Ukrainian documentaries on her social networking pages,” Mr. Baird said. “Canada is deeply concerned about these growing trends.”

Iran, Syria, China, Cuba and Ethiopia are also possible candidates since they are at the bottom of the Freedom House online freedom rankings. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are among the ten worst, while Canada ranks third best, below Iceland and Estonia.

Governments are increasingly turning to the Internet to promote their foreign policy goals. The U.S. is now using Twitter to discredit ISIS, and North Korea was recently accused of hacking Sony to force the cancellation of a Hollywood movie that lampooned Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Canada’s strategy is more benign: to undermine authoritarian regimes by undermining the online monitoring and censorship that helps keep them in power. Mr. Baird said Canada was “engaging in what we call direct diplomacy with civic leaders and political actors, including online influencers, to help support them in their work, to effect positive political change where they live.”

Harper government steals $9 million from taxpayers to fund covert Zionist ‘Digital Public Square Project’ by Arthur Topham

Harper government steals $9 million from taxpayers to fund covert Zionist ‘Digital Public Square Project’

by

Arthur Topham

January 9th, 2015

 

Chutzpah alone is insufficient a term to describe this latest move on the part of the Zionist controlled Harper government to undermine Canada’s former status as an independent, sovereign western democracy and drag it further down into the demonic pit of Isra-hell’s demented, psychopathic, war-crazed, terrorist-ridden criminal actions.

Driven by an unquenchable lust for power and control of the world via deception and control of foreign governments and being the pathological liars and swindlers that they are, nothing appears to deter the Zionist’s endless political machinations which inevitably include deceiving the general public in order to have the dumbed down goy pay for these traitor’s own nefarious aims. This transparent process is no better exemplified than in their latest swindle of $9 million bucks of taxpayers money to help Israel continue its relentless, hate-filled disinformation campaigns against the Russian Federation and the Muslim nations throughout the Middle East that Israel has its greedy little eyes set upon invading and controlling.

And what better way than to funnel that $9 million into a Jew-created Trojan Horse Zionist disinformation center like the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and then have the funds laundered out to various private Zionist organizations by the Munk school’s former Director, the staunch Zionist matriarch and commissar, Professor Janice Gross Stein who will be overseeing this additional new project of the 21st century to undermine foreign nations in order to destroy them and take control of their resources.

GrossSteinBaird
Professor Janice Gross Stein and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird at the launch of the Digital Public Square Project
.
The absolutely farcical and hypocritically cunning nature of this move on the part of the Harper government and its Jewish overlords is best illustrated in some of the more blatant statements made in the ZNP article regarding the notion of freedom of speech and the rights of citizens to criticize their governments which I will add further comment to as the sorry tale unfolds.

In a separate article which I found on the University of Toronto’s News homepage titled, “Government of Canada backs digital public square from U of T’s Munk School” writer Terry Lavender states that the Zionist Israeli disinformation scam, code-named the “Digital Public Square Project” is being marketed by the mendacious Munk and Harper Zionists as “a new project to increase digital communication access for people in countries ruled by repressive governments.” (That is, countries outside of our own.)

He then quotes Baird as stating, “Canada believes that by harnessing new digital technologies to support freedom and democracy we can help give a voice to the voiceless. Through the Digital Public Square project, the Munk School of Global Affairs will create open digital spaces to enable citizens to hold their governments to account in defending freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.” [all emphasis throughout this article is mine. AT.]

Professor Gross Stein then waxes eloquent in the Zionist style of deception that the world has now grown so used to hearing and delivers the following remarks on this latest subterfuge by stating, “Governments have jailed journalists, closed civil society organizations, and strengthened their firewalls to deny citizens access to the web. Using surveillance technologies, they monitor what their citizens post. [Heed this statement Det. Cst. Terry Wilson of the BC Hate Crime Team. AT.] Why do they do this? Because oppressive and authoritarian regimes fear the power of ideas. Ideas are what they fear most. And for good reason. Ideas create change. Ideas are what citizens exchange when we push against the constraints that others impose.

Gross Stein then announced that “Munk will work with partners in the private sector in Canada and others around the world on the project.”

Yes, and I’m positive that Stein and Munk, holding the key to the vault containing $9 million of Canadian taxpayer funds, will be most prudent in their spending of those ill-gained dollars making sure to pass them along to only pro-Israeli, pro-Zionist “partners” here at home and abroad.

 Janice Gross Stein Israeli Sayan

Wikipedia tells us that, “Stein is the [former. AT] director of the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto and Associate Chair and Belzberg Professor of Conflict Management and Negotiation within the University of Toronto’s political science department. She is a specialist in Middle East area studies; negotiation theory; foreign policy decision-making; and international conflict management, on which she has lectured at the Centre for National Security Studies in Ottawa and at the NATO Defense College in RomeItaly.

Oi vey! what can one say about such prestigious credentials? A lecturer at the NATO Defense College in Rome no less. NATO, the one organization that the Zionist Israelis and their sycophants are using constantly to threaten and intimidate and cajole nations into allowing the US to set up nuclear weapons on their land in order to surround those who don’t kowtow to the Rothschild global agenda for a one world totalitarian government. Does it sound like Professor Gross Stein might have some peripheral interest in what’s happening in Israel and Palestine and Iran and Iraq and Libya and Syria and Lebanon and Russia that might make her the perfect “neutral” “Canadian” spokesperson to bring freedom of expression and Internet freedom to all those ignorant slaves throughout the Middle East and Russia who are suffering under “oppressive and authoritarian regimes” and unable to express their thoughts and feelings and ideas because of those brutes will resort to anything, including throwing someone in jail, merely for expressing their opinions on issues and on their governments.

Stein&May

Going back to the Zionist National Post we find the Harper Zionist occupation government referring to their latest conspiracy with the Munk megalomaniacs as “direct diplomacy” where, according to ‘Bimbo the Obescient’ Baird, the “partnership” in crime “would open up online spaces for political dialogue within “restrictive and repressive environments.” Hmmm… he wasn’t thinking about Canada was he I thought to myself as I read it.

The article goes on to describe this latest initiative in mind-control of Canadians and citizens of other independent nations as a further development of an earlier psych-op used to try and undermine Iran and gain western support for Israel to attack that nation based upon fabricated lies about “nuclear weapons” and the threat to Israel, a plan that never gained enough traction to come to fruition (thank God!).

Baird then has the balls (metaphically-speaking of course) to state that the project would “‘increase digital space for free expression,’ allowing citizens to stay informed, share their opinions and advocate for their rights.”

Some more juicy quotes from the same article:

“We believe that citizens of all countries must be able to express themselves freely, to hold their governments to account as well as to exchange information and ideas.”

“The internet is a game-changing technology on these issues. It has the ability to empower individuals more than any other technology before it. This scares some people in power and so regimes around the world are increasingly working to restrict the Internet.

The writer then goes on to quote excerpts on Internet freedom from the U.S.-based (Zionist Jew, pro-Israeli) non-profit Freedom House, stating that other countries were “rapidly adopting new laws that legitimize existing repression and effectively criminalize online dissent, [and] as a result, more people than ever were being arrested for the things they had posted online.

“Blocking and filtering — once the most widespread methods of censorship — are still very common, but many countries now prefer to simply imprison users who post undesirable content, thereby deterring others and encouraging self-censorship.

Hmmm…. I again thought to myself, finally they’re catching up to good ol’ “democratic” Canada who has had these repressive laws enshrined in their criminal code now for decades beginning with the “Hate Propaganda” laws under Section 318 to 320 of the Canadian Criminal Code and then the now repealed sec. 13 “hate crime” legislation used to silence dozens of Canadian citizens who were all trying to alert their nation to the real threat of the Zionist interlopers who are now in control of Canada’s the ship of state. These Zionist created laws were all designed to stifle and silence and jail Canadians for precisely the same “crimes” that these two-faced, hypocritical Zionist bigots in Ottawa and the University of Toronto are now proposing to stem in other countries.

So here I am a Canadian citizen facing a sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada “Hate Propaganda” charge laid filed against me by a member of Canada’s most influential Jewish lobby organization B’nai Brith Canada because I was deemed by this individual zealot and one other psychopathic Zionist sycophant to have expressed my opinions and published the opinions and facts of others regarding the dangerous presence here in my home and native land of foreign government influences, to wit, the Zionist state of Israel and the control of my country’s news media by this same group of criminal war-mongers and international gangsters. And on top of that I’m facing a possible two-year jail sentence should I be found guilty of said “crime” and while all of this charade has been ongoing now RIGHT HERE IN CANADA FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS Baird the buffoon and Harper the traitor and now Janice the Jew sayan are all telling me and the rest of Canada that they’re going to take $9 million dollars out of our pockets to help other nations preserve THEIR right to freedom of expression!

Am I missing something here? Are you?

KARMA: Ezra Levant, Zionism & the Politics of Deception

by

Arthur Topham

“What goes around comes around”

~ modern-day English expression to describe the Buddhist Law of Karma

The recent November 27, 2014 guilty ruling by Justice Wendy Matheson in the defamation lawsuit against Sun News Network’s Zionist Jew propagandist Ezra Levant by Khurrum Awan a Muslim Canadian lawyer came for many as a surprise and a grave disappointment.

What this reflects for those caught up in the deceptive rhetoric of Ezra Levant and his background support network of international Jewry (and those not), is that there are within that sector of people paying attention to Canadian and global politics, two schools of thought when it comes to the issue of freedom of speech or expression; one that sees Levant as the leading spokesperson for freedom of speech and another which views his actions or behaviour as that of the proverbial Trojan Horse – interposed within the Jew media monopoly in order to serve the needs, not of Canada, but of the Israeli agenda which, ultimately, means the ideology of Zionism.

EzraLrg copy 5

One aspect of the case which emerged and that played a crucial role in determining to what extent Levant had defamed Khurrum Awan, was the perennial ploy of the Jews and their monopoly media cartel to fling the accusation “anti-Semitic” at anyone who so much as brushes up against their holy of holiest shrines, the state of Israel and its atheistic Zionist ideology. Anything that could possibly relate to that issue, no matter how tangential in nature, should it be deemed critical in any way of the assumed supremacist and racist nature of the Jews-only state, automatically ensures that the author of said critique will be subjected to this self-chosen epithet in order to demean and vilify the writer or speaker and thus render him or her persona non grata in the eyes of the general public and unworthy of further respect or attention.

This method of dealing with Zion’s critics has a long and infamous history; one that for the most part has worked extremely well over the past century and longer to silence and discredit opponents of the Jewish conspiracy for global hegemony. This is why the ruling in Awan/Levant libel case has suddenly and so succinctly delineated the possibility that such success may be on the wain, a very real, shocking and threatening thought for those who have been so adept at flashing that card and automatically expecting to trump any argument presented by the non-Jewish or gentile critic no matter how legitimate, logical or truthful.

This same reaction to Justice Matheson’s ruling could easily be compared with the former controversial sec. 13 Canadian Human Rights Code legislation that was the subject of heated debate for many years until it was finally repealed by the Harper government in 2012 when his handlers (the Jewish lobbyists) realized that such a specious law was in fact a double-edged sword that could be, and was being used against not only the gentile population of critics of Zion but also the Jews themselves.

That said, in the case of myself, another longstanding victim of Levant’s similar bellicose and libellous accusations of being “anti-Semitic”, the ruling came more as a pleasant surprise and along with that sense of satisfaction the hope for a possible turnaround of a decades-long systemic pattern of legal misfeasance on the part of Canada’s judiciary when it comes to finding anyone of Zionist Jew persuasion guilty of a crime (other than that of child porn which is fairly common).

Screen Shot 2013-01-27 at 3.38.53 PM copy

The reaction by the Zionist media was expected and throughout their news networks and affiliated blogs the feigned cries of outrage were heard resounding across the msm and over the internet. Why this should come as such a shock to Canadians merely illustrates the power of the Zionist press and its tv media to instil their version of “political reality” into the minds of unwary readers and viewers.

Why decent, thoughtful people should be overly upset by the fact that Levant was found guilty of defamation is, in itself, disconcerting given his years of promoting the Zionist agenda of spreading lies and hatred about the Muslim people at the behest of his Zionist controllers who continually feed his fragmented ego and fill his purse with scheckles; an agenda designed to build up a much greater and lethal game plan of inciting the whole of Western nations into a frenzied, unfounded and pathologic hatred of Muslim nations as the pretext for endless, imperialist wars against the people of the Middle East.

For those who haven’t figured out what Zionism is yet (other than the Zionist’s version), coming to terms with Judge Matheson’s decision will be difficult to understand and accept and it’s only through a greater understanding of who Ezra Levant really is that one can begin to fathom the depth of deception that the Canadian public has been subjected to over the past seventy years of media and judicial transgression that has left our nation bereft of any reliable and truthful reference point from which to reasonably and intellectually access what’s going on in our world of politics and law.

EzraLevant 1 copy 8

I’ve been following Levant’s meteoric rise to fame and misfortune ever since 2007 when I became embroiled in the sec. 13 drama after B’nai Brith Canada (a Jews-only secret masonic organization) filed a complaint against myself and my website  in November of 2007 with the Canadian Human Rights Commission seeking relief for discriminatory publication under prohibited grounds caught by  Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act claiming that, to wit: The premise of this complaint is a contention that Arthur Topham of Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada and his internet publication known as  Radicalpress.com  contrive to promote ongoing hatred affecting persons identifiable as Jews and/or as citizens of Israel.

It would be advisable for readers to take special note of the last three words in that complaint as they illustrate in no uncertain terms what the Jewish lobby here in Canada wants to establish as law – NO CRITICISM OF ISRAEL! Their same modus operandi is now in play in my current Sec. 319(2) criminal charge of promoting “Hate Propaganda” toward “people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin“.

There is so much more to be said about Ezra Levant and the reasons why he’s been elevated to the status that he now holds in Canada’s media and how it ties in with the Harper government, the racist state of Israel and the global pursuits of Zionist juggernaut that wants control of everything from our personal data to the final say in every law and decision ranging from the local to highest branches of international governance on the planet.

I will leave readers with a list of my own critiques of this Zionist stooge who the msm has employed for years to voice the agenda of Israel under the guise of freedom of speech in Canada. Maybe after reading further those still in awe of this Zionist double agent for Israel will come to see him for what he truly is, a traitor to Canada just like his co-conspirator Stephen Harper.

Kinder Morgan: The Rest of the Story the Tyee left out By Robin Mathews

Kinder Morgan: The Rest of the Story the Tyee left out

By

Robin Mathews

Kinder Morgan. Economist Robyn Allan in TYEE. Corporate Robbers in British Columbia. The National Energy Board …. A part of the story Robyn Allan doesn’t tell.

The story is so large, so corrupt, so – to many, many ordinary Canadian eyes – so criminal – Robyn Allan couldn’t possibly have told all of the Terasen/BC Transmountain Pipeline System story. More has to be laid out.  British Columbians must know, first, that the National Energy Board is their enemy – and they must treat it – openly – as that.  (Other enemies are more obvious.)

In his 2014 book PARTY OF ONE, about Stephen Harper, Michael Harris writes (p. 153) that in a policy paper “generated by bureaucrats in Harper’s International Trade Ministry” the National Energy Board (NEB) is described as “an ‘ally’ of the Harper government’s resource development plans.”

Anyone who has had doubts, at all, will see in what follows that Stephen Harper is a major enemy – probably enemy Number One.  And he has made the National Energy Board his lackey.  Need we say more?

For Robyn Allan’s article, readers need to go to TheTyee.ca 17 November, 2014.

In the article – in brief – she makes clear the intimate ENRON connections of Richard Kinder. (ENRON, for those who have forgotten, is the gigantic U.S. Energy corporation built on accounting fraud to revenues of around $111 billion in 2001 before it exploded and bankrupted in a corruption scandal lasting years and costing honest, trusting people $ billions.) She makes clear, as well, Richard Kinder’s brilliance as a tax juggler (and evader), and his brilliance in slipping the former Canadian corporation based in Vancouver, Terasen, and its holding – the Trans-Mountain Pipeline System – into wholly U.S. hands and almost as wholly into a life under U.S. law.

ENRON copy

What almost NOBODY mentions now is that a few short years ago, the pipeline causing the present Burnaby Mountain actions – and the corporation to which it was attached – made up A WHOLLY, PEOPLE-OWNED, BRITISH COLUMBIA OPERATION feeding revenue into support for education, healthcare, etc.

Let’s put it simply.  A plan was put into effect – beginning about fifteen years ago – to rob British Columbians of their public corporations (and the wealth they generated), and to hand all to U.S. private corporations.  The plan was also to impoverish British Columbians and to teach them to live in poverty. Terasen’s demise was only a part.

The major activity of the sell-out happened under Gordon Campbell’s Right-leaning Liberal government when Christie Clark was Deputy Premier and (later) judged to be a violator of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms as Minister of Education. That attack on Public Education was a part of the movement to “the privatization of everything”, including the education of B.C.’s children – a still on-going, as yet uncompleted program.

For those saying the RCMP officers on Burnaby Mountain arresting demonstrators are very nice fellows who are just doing a job that our splendid Rule Of Law in Canada forces upon them – it’s time to re-think!

NEBLogo

It is a fact (read Ian Mulgrew, Vancouver Sun, Nov. 24 and Nov.27) that the injunction gained by Kinder Morgan against the demonstrators is a highly dubious legal tactic rejected by a number of judges and ex-judges.  As well … the RCMP in British Columbia has a growing reputation as  – to put the matter plainly – a corrupt organization.  Never mind the unexamined (but much rumoured) RCMP role in the Pickton Farm Missing Women story.  Stay with “politics”.

Many believe premier Glen Clark (the late 1990s) was set up, vilified, falsely investigated, and politically ruined by a mafia group made up of the Gordon Campbell interests (political and corporate), the Mainstream Press and Media, and the RCMP … with the unfortunate assistance of certain forces in the higher courts of British Columbia. (More on that aspect later.)

I didn’t like the smell of the RCMP investigation of Glen Clark.  I wrote to the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP asking for a review of the investigation (which was rumoured to be improper).  The Commission (in my experience) appears to be a front organization employed to prevent serious investigation and action.  The review I asked for began.  I received non-informative monthly notes.  Then it was stopped by two Vancouver RCMP officers who informed me that 28 volumes of evidentiary material on Glen Clark had been put at the disposal of prosecutors.  (Remember: when he was successfully ruined, the judge on the case declared Glen Clark innocent of all charges against him.)

I asked for the review to continue – to find if the RCMP had investigated Glen Clark improperly.  I received no answer.  I waited.  And I waited.  And I waited.  Almost THREE YEARS LATER  I received a report by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP on the  investigation of Glen Clark by the RCMP in British Columbia.  The Report was short.  It informed me that the two officers of the RCMP had IMPROPERLY closed the review I asked for.

Then the Report advised me that The Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP had decided to leave it up to the “discretion” of the B.C. RCMP whether it would open up the review I had asked for and continue it!  Readers will have to guess what the Vancouver RCMP decided ….

In almost every dirty, large, BC political activity thereafter, I believe the RCMP has come out with dirty hands.

The move to “the privatization of everything” has involved education, transportation, energy, infrastructure, medicare … and more.

The bastard privatization of BC Ferries began early in the 2000s and has been a disaster.  Readers of the legislation creating the “privatized” entity can see its sham nature.  Not only was the move a way to get “fake” revenue for government, but it was a privatization that wasn’t privatization.  The expensive Ferry Commissioner structure is, in my judgement, a useless, paper creation. The BC government still calls the shots – and places its cronies onto the unnecessary and useless Board of Directors – paying them well.  At the same time the “privatized” corporation pays its top administrators hockey-star salaries as the organization they run sinks deeper and deeper into the slime of privatization.

Ordinary British Columbians and the economy of the coastal communities are being savaged.  But who cares, for privatization is continuing.

THE BIG BC PRIVATIZATION which is, strangely, hardly talked about is the privatization of what was BC GAS.  That was the publicly-owned corporation operating the transmountain pipeline which is being fought over on Burnaby Mountain… and more.  BC GAS, I have been told, twinned with BC Hydro.  The two worked together, making modernizations possible and good budgeting, balanced books, and contributions to B.C. General Revenues in support of education, health care, and other public needs.

The huge pressure for ‘privatization’ came (globally) as the fight-back of the corporations intensified, greedy for the money that was – after the Second World War – going into social needs and the decent living of the population. That was when private corporations began bribing, coercing, threatening, undermining, mating with, and otherwise taking over governments.

And so it was under a New Democratic government in B.C. that BC GAS was permitted to “go private”.  The politics of that needs research!  But the NDP was “going right” with the tide, was beginning its more than decade-long sell-out, its acceptance of privatization policies, of “Free Trade” Agreements, of the falsehood that lower taxes on private corporations spur employment … and more.

The NDP, however, demanded that the privatized BC GAS, now called TERASEN be headquartered in British Columbia and remain in Canadian hands.  As soon as Gordon Campbell took power (after the rigged destruction of Glen Clark and the BC NDP) work was started on selling Terasen to U.S. interests.  At the same time, David Hahn, Gordon Campbell’s personal pick for head of the bastard privatization of BC Ferries, spent his first three years or so travelling the globe in an attempt to dump BC Ferries onto anyone in the world who would buy it.  But potential buyers were all too smart….

And so BC Ferries became, as I see it, a private club for Gordon Campbell government and friends and associates … to play with (creating cruise-style monsters) and to squeeze for any cash that could come out of it.

Public concern wouldn’t let BC Hydro go the same way.  And so it is being wrecked more carefully.  Divided now into three parts, one part was handed to a portion of the Scandal Prince called ENRON, a portion that managed to slip away and rename.  And so Accenture – a private corporation – has the management of a third of BC Hydro. A new entity has been formed to manage the distribution of power created by BC Hydro – and it, apparently, is overseen by a major U.S. private, continental energy manager.

The privatized run-of- the-river creations (of the Gordon Campbell/Christie Clark governments) are – to my mind – such a scandal of corrupt contracts and environmental disasters they need a Royal Commission Inquiry with the full right granted to the Commission to recommend criminal charges wherever deemed warranted.  Whatever development of the energy resources of British Columbia rivers was to be undertaken, it should have been careful, long-term planned, and minutely managed in the public interest and by public ownership under the BC Hydro banner.  Privatization of BC’s waterways has been a financial, engineering, and environmental disaster of gigantic proportions.

BC Ferries, BC Gas, BC Hydro … and BC Rail!  Having privatized (profitable) CN Rail and seeing it become a U.S. private corporation headquartered in Texas, privatizer Paul Tellier (an avid and public Continentalist wanting a single currency for North America  … and more) came to visit B.C. at the turn of the century.  While here, he advocated that (profitable) BC Rail do what CN Rail had done.  Gordon Campbell was eager.

Kinsella-1

It is my contention that the whole ‘privatization’ of BC Rail was corrupt, perhaps criminal.  I asked the BC RCMP to begin investigation and it refused.  I believe that private corporate interests, ‘inside’ government agencies, and cabinet powers set about to destroy any profitable operation of BC Rail, to undermine it in the public’s eyes, to ready it to hand away … and then, corruptly, to place it in the hands of the Texas people who owned CN Rail.

In order to do that, many, many, many people had to be part of the activity.  Three lower-order functionaries – Sikhs incidentally – were charged in a strange and almost accidental set of circumstances.  The charges were ballyhoo’d to be the result of a determination to get to the bottom of corruption in the BC Rail Scandal.  The three men were, rather, in my mind, used as part of a gigantic cover-up to protect the real criminals in the privatization and giveaway of BC Rail.

Following and reporting on the four years of court action against the men, I came to believe, without doubt, that they were used to cover-up for the real criminals.

And it is here we have to bring in Stephen Harper.  His cabinet in Ottawa did two key things.  When the judge on the Basi, Virk, and Basi trial was being responsive to the needs of the Defence lawyers, repeatedly ordering evidence be provided to them that would assure a fair defence, she was removed by an action taken by the minister of justice in the Harper cabinet.  The judge who replaced Madam Justice Elizabeth Bennett was, in my judgement, “a patsy”.  Shortly after being placed on the case, she was raised to the position of Associate Chief Justice of the B.C. Supreme Court … and a little later to the Appeals Court of B.C. – all actions of the federal minister of justice acting, we may be sure, in close consultation with Stephen Harper, prime minister.

The switch of judges on the Basi, Virk, and Basi case was managed by Patrick Dohm, then associate chief justice of the B.C. Supreme court.  He was the judge who (earlier) signed the search warrant to surprise search (with TV crew accompaniment) the home of premier Glen Clark where no incriminating evidence could be found. Dohm was the judge who later signed the more than twenty search warrants that accompanied the famous (BC Rail related) search warrant “raid” on B.C. legislature offices.  He insisted that only one of the homes searched must be forewarned by the police.  That just happened to be the home of Christie Clark.

The “raiding” RCMP officers discovered at the address of a lobbyist for a Railway interest certain confidential cabinet documents.  He was never charged, nor was he (as far as anyone knows) further investigated.  By the merest coincidence he turned out to be Christie Clark’s brother.  The investigating RCMP never sought a search warrant for the address of premier Gordon Campbell – an obvious target, and they had a precedent in the search warrant obtained to search the home of then premier Glen Clark.  Gordon Campbell’s home, in the minds of many, was much more likely to harbour incriminating evidence than Glen Clark’s home was – perhaps the reason the RCMP avoided Gordon Campbell’s residence.

When the trial was terminated (it wasn’t over), Gordon Campbell had sunk to an historic low in ratings by the population.  He might be said to be despised as the story of his privatizations became widely known.  What would become of him if he remained (now no longer premier) in British Columbia?

Stephen Harper solved that problem, naming Gordon Campbell to one of the top positions among diplomats of Canada – naming him Canada’s High Commissioner in London, England, where he is living out his life humbly, in the devoted service of the Canadian people.  I believe there is evidence in the whole story to suggest that Gordon Campbell and Stephen Harper worked (and work) for the same global private corporate forces which intend to privatize everything and to turn Canadians into paupers and beggars in the process.

GordoHighComm

To close (though there are pages more that might be said), a brief look at the courts and the RCMP….  I said earlier the RCMP refused to investigate the central actors in the BC Rail Scandal.  And throughout the legal proceedings in court the Defence lawyers repeatedly suggested the RCMP was not fully and fairly cooperating and was delaying submission of evidentiary material.  My own observation was that the RCMP spent endless time on the three lower-level operatives who were charged and no time on anyone else under suspicion.

I revealed that the Special Crown Prosecutor (who had to work closely, after his appointment in 2003, with the RCMP) had been appointed in flagrant violation of the legislation governing the appointment of Special Prosecutors. And so the investigation – since he was appointed – and the conduct of ALL the court proceedings were in doubt as to their legitimacy.  He was, clearly, not legitimate as Special Crown Prosecutor, having been a close associate of both the Attorney General who appointed him and of the Deputy Attorney General.

He was illegitimately in the courtroom as Special Prosecutor.  But he had also been working in close relation to the investigative forces of the RCMP from 2003 until the pre-trial began in 2007 …  and even after, as an illegitimate appointment.  What did that mean about the investigation by the RCMP?

Those matters got worse when I reported to the Chief Justice, the Associate Chief Justice and to the judge on the trial that the Special Crown Prosecutor was illegitimately in the court.  I gave them the evidence – which was simple enough.  The clearly stated legislation describing the requirements of a Special Crown Prosecutor had been wildly violated, visibly, and incontrovertibly.

The officer of the court who replied to the information I had sent to each of the judges reported to me that since none of the three judges had participated in the appointment of the Special Crown Prosecutor they would do nothing.  The fact that the highest court in British Columbia, the Supreme Court, was being used by an illegitimate Crown Prosecutor – and that the Chief Justice and the Associate Chief Justice were responsible for the administration of justice in that court – didn’t interest them.  And so I wrote to them again.  And they would do nothing, again.

And then, (as I read the situation) to conclude, in order to prevent the trial of the three accused men from revealing information about the major criminals in the BC Rail Scandal, the trial had to be shut down to prevent further cross-examination of witnesses.  Street language might say that the accused were bribed into letting the trial end.  Six million dollars was paid by government (by B.C. taxpayers, that is) to cover all the costs of the accused.  And the charges against them were cleaned of anything important.  The trial stopped … without ending.

Who initialed the six million dollars to be paid?  No one could find out.  And the RCMP, of course, didn’t investigate.  The Auditor General of British Columbia tried and tried and tried to find out who authorized the payments – and couldn’t find out.  The premier, Christie Clark , and her  Attorney General, Shirley Bond, somehow prevented the Auditor General from ever finding out – though he even went to court to force release of the information.

At the beginning of this column I said that the information about Burnaby Mountain, about the Trans Mountain Pipeline System, about the RCMP on Burnaby Mountain  arresting demonstrators, about the dubious injunction against the demonstrators, and about the history of Richard Kinder supplied by Robyn Allan doesn’t tell the whole story.

NewChristieMisleaders copy 2

The whole story needs to be told of the determination of the Harper federal cabinet and the Gordon Campbell/Christie Clark cabinet (as an unholy alliance) to privatize everything, to give it to U.S. interests, and to pauperize and make beggars of the British Columbia population … and in the process to pollute and destroy the environment in which British Columbians live.  The whole story needs to be told of how BC GAS was first turned into Terasen (for no worthwhile reason), and was then dumped by the Gordon Campbell government into the lap of Richard Kinder and friends.

If that hadn’t happened (and it shouldn’t have happened) there would be no battle on Burnaby mountain now.  The story of Richard Kinder is interesting … and horrible.  But the sell-out of British Columbia’s publicly-owned wealth by the Gordon Campbell/Christie Clark team is more interesting to B.C. people – and more horrible.

When that story is known, then the ease with which the Kinder Morgan forces have moved into B.C. and are dictating to the B.C. government, to the Harper government, and to its lackey organization called the National Energy Board becomes as clear as it needs to be.

Ian V. Macdonald’s Letter to Editor of National Post

Let2NatPostIanVM

November 16, 2014

Editor
NATIONAL POST
Toronto

Dear Sir,

Re: Soldiers’ assassins motivated by injustice?

National Post coverage of the killing of the Cenotaph guard and a soldier in Quebec has been more than adequate as regards the specific events, but sadly provides little penetrating insight on how such incongruous events could ever take place in our peace-loving nation.

The origin of the current mis-labelled “terrorism” is injustice and disintegration in the Middle East which in turn arose from the subversion of Western Democratic governments by Zionist lobbies that enabled Jews to seize Palestine and convert it to a Jewish state.  Their success led to the violent dispossession and expulsion of the rightful inhabitants, spawning resentment and physical resistance. Subsequent wars of aggression to expand Jewish territory and hegemony over the region aggravated the tensions and created more foes.

Since the conquered Palestinians had no military forces, like the French Resistance they resorted to various forms of partisan warfare which ranged from stone-throwing to hijacking and suicide bombing, described by the media as “terrorism” although it was virtually innocuous compared with the massacres by the Israel Defence Force (over 2000 unarmed Palestinian children were shot dead by Israeli “soldiers” during the first Intifada alone and an even larger number killed recently in Gaza).

Not surprisingly, the litany of atrocities, assassinations and invasions, combined with Zionist international criminal activity of all kinds on a grand scale, prompted outrage and hatred among the victims and their sympathizers, some of whom take matters into their own hands.  The U.S. destruction of Iraq compounded the anarchy by allowing formation of armed factions, some of which  are secretly supported by their U.S.-Zionist ostensible enemy in order to forestall any return to unity, a subtle neutralization of Arab neighbours that serves Israeli purposes.

False flag operations are employed to help keep the already-stupified American public on-side, of which the Mossad-engineered, state-of-the-art demolition of the World Trade Centre (ludicrously attributed to unskilled young Arabs) is a spectacular example.  Senior American statesmen and military advisors warned President Harry Truman in 1948 that creation of a hostile Jewish state on Arab land would have catastrophic consequences, but the heavily-bribed President acquiesced to Zionist pressure and even intimidated some reluctant small countries into voting in the UN in support of the unsavoury proposal.

An honest, astute, conscientious, loyal Canadian statesman today would see the only solution to the contrived security problem, of which the Ottawa incident is a very minor manifestation, as being the permanent eradication of its creator, namely the Zionist State of Israel and all its diabolical works which include, most importantly, its subversive network of traitors and lobbyists who have bought control of our governments and our destiny.  If Canada were to take the lead in fettering Israel (through comprehensive Iraq-style sanctions, for example) it would regain respect and once again serve as a light among the nations, to its immense benefit, politically, materially –  and spiritually for doing God’s work.

As ever,

Harper, The Ottawa Shooter, and Selling of War by Anthony J. Hall

The Ottawa Shooter Episode of Oct. 22 and the Depiction of the Anti-ISIL War as Simultaneously a Domestic and International Anti-Terrorist Campaign

Screen-Shot-2014-10-28-at-1.51.26-PM-300x320

The sensationalized media coverage of the police and military responses to the violent actions of one or more shooters in the Canadian capital of Ottawa Canada on Oct. 22 was truly global in scope. Among the newspapers that used on their front pages dramatic photographs of the elaborate militarization on Canada’s Parliament Hill were the New York Times, New York’s Daily News, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, UK’s The Guardian, Madrid’s El Pais, France’s Sud Ouest, Belgium’s De Morgan, Netherland’s de Volkskrant, Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine, Kuwait’s Arab Times, the Kuwait Times, Lebanon’s Daily Star, and Pakistan’s Dawn.

The geographic outlines of this story’s dissemination correspond fairly well with the list of countries lining up to go to war with the non-state entity being regularly described to the world as “the Islamic State,” ISIL, or, in the Arab-speaking and Farsi-speaking countries, DAESH. The countries that have declared war on ISIL include United States, Canada, Great Britain, France, Australia, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, the Netherlands, Denmark, Czech Republic, Italy, and, in very qualified ways, Germany and Turkey. The government of Kuwait is allowing its military air bases to be used by the jet fighters, including those of Canada’s Armed Forces, that are at this moment converging on the Middle East to conduct anti-ISIL warfare.

Very significantly the government of Iran has joined forces with American forces in Iraq to oppose the incursions of the Sunni-based ISIL. Indeed, the Shia-oriented Islamic Republic of Iran has committed members of the Quds Force, an elite unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards, to the conflict under the direction of the “chief technician,” Commander Qasem Soleimani. A much-lionized military figure in his own county, Commander Soleimani helped advise Hezbollah on its military defences against the incursions of the Israeli Defense Force. He is also credited with helping in the defense of the forces of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad against Western-backed al-Qaeda mercenaries, some of whom have recently  joined ISIL.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-28-at-1.53.54-PM-320x271

Among countries who have declared some sort of moral support on ISIL are Israel, Bulgaria, Egypt, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo, Oman, Poland, Croatia and Ukraine. The Arab League has also aligned itself against ISIL. Among the countries whose governments and/or whose private citizens have been accused of helping to recruit, organize, train, arm and finance ISIL are the United States, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates. This would not be the first time in history where powerful interests back both sides in a conflict. Certainly the governments of most of these countries accused of being on both sides of the conflict with ISIL were backers of the campaign to overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. Ironically Syria’s Armed Forces right now are bearing a large part of the burden of the military campaign to fend off the territorial incursions of ISIL.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/11124070/Who-is-in-the-anti-Islamic-State-coalition-and-what-they-are-contributing.html

After 9/11 there was much discussion about the need to transform the international rules of war to facilitate military campaigns against non-state entities capable of operations across many international boundaries. In spite of this discussion the US-led response to 9/11 was characterized by attacks on sovereign states, namely Afghan and Iraq. New governments were imposed on both countries as an outcome of the US-led military invasions.

The international war on ISIL now formally ushers in the new type of conflict so much discussed since the transformative events of Sept. 2001. The multilateral invasion of what is essentially a club or an association of a transnational assembly of fighters raises many fundamental questions about what might, in the light of future history, be looked back upon as the formal end of an international order based on the concept of the juridical integrity of sovereign states. In this regard Russian President Vladimir Putin was seemingly far ahead of many other world leaders with his penetrating analysis at the Valdai Club of the unparalleled dangers engulfing humanity at this time when the whole notion of international law has seemingly been renounced by the coalition of governments taking their considerable direction from the US and Israeli governments.

Selling War; Selling the Loss of Civil Liberties; Selling the End of Habeas Corpus; Selling the Further Expansion of the Surveillance State 

The huge coverage afforded the Ottawa shooter episode in the world press might be interpreted as a means of publicizing the launch of yet another US-led invasion of Iraqi territory.

The graphic photographs proliferating throughout the global media depicting the militarization of Ottawa’s Parliament Hill could be seen as a means of dramatizing the preferred story line of those with responsibility for guiding public opinion to support the War on ISIL. The effect of the pictures was to dramatize the anti-ISIL campaign as simultaneously a domestic anti-terror operation as well as an international anti-terror military operation.

Certainly Stephen Harper has tried to emphasize the dual character of the anti-ISIL campaign in a speech he presented in the Canadian House of Commons about three weeks before the Ottawa shooter incident. He described the ISIL’s intentions to target Canadian citizens and families, to create conditions where “Canadians should not feel comfortable in our own homes.”

ISIL. A Very Well Funded, Well Equipped Military Force. Who is Providing the Financing, the Arms, and Help with Using the Social Media? What Do Those Providing this Backing Expect to Gain in  Return? What is the Backers’ Agenda? Why so Much Emphasis on Takfiri Politics? Who Stands to Gain? Who Stands to Lose? When War Wins, Truth Loses.

The Canadian prime minister accused ISIL of torturing and beheading children, raping women and selling them into slavery, and engaging in the wholesale slaughter of minorities. A month prior to his Oct. 3 speech Harper had already committed, without any parliamentary debate whatsoever, Canadian troops to conduct reconnaissance missions on ISIL. Just as the events of Oct. 22 unfolded Harper was engaged in expanding the police powers of his own executive branch to “monitor aspiring terrorists.”

Shortly after the events of Oct. 22 on Parliament Hill I was contacted by Manuel Ochsenreiter, a friend and colleague I met recently at the New Horizon conference in Tehran. One of the topics we addressed at the New Horizon conference in Tehran was the subject of the disproportionate influence of Israeli lobbies on many of the governments lining up to fight ISIL. For this the conference was condemned in predictable terms by the Anti-Defamation League and others as being “anti-Semitic.” It will be interesting if this kind of predictable knee-jerk anti-Iranian rhetoric continues now that the anti-ISIL campaign has been joined by some of the most elite fighting forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Questions and Answers

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-12.58.41-PM

Manuel Ochsenreiter, chief editor of Zuerst magazineine in Germany, posed the following questions to me:

1. Ochsenreiter: Prof Hall, Canada had a reputation for being a peaceful, harmonic and – boring – country. Then came the shooting event on Parliament Hill that shattered old stereotypes around the world. What is going on in Canada? Before we get into the details of the outburst of gunfire on Oct. 22 in the formerly peaceful constitutional monarchy covering the northern half of North America, can you give us some context and historical background? Can you tell us something about what is behind the events that connect this violent outburst with the changing political culture in Canada?

Hall: In a nutshell, the tectonic transformations in Canada’s political landscape are being engineered by Stephen Harper and the political cabal he embodies, serves and represents. Harper is a neocon extremist who entered the political scene as the Canadian franchise holder of the US Republic Party led by the Bush-Cheney gang of operatives. In my view, Harper’s move from the margins of Canadian federal politics to his seizure in 2011 of a majority of seats in the Canadian House of Commons took place with the help of an array of dirty tricks, some of them administered from outside Canada. These dirty tricks include the wholesale importation into Canada of the US Republican Party’s comparative advantage in election fraud.

Here’s how it went. In 2003 the Liberal Party government of Jean Chretien had control of a firm majority of seats in the House of Commons. Although the Chretien government did join in NATO’s invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11, the Chretien Liberals refused to join the US-led invasion of Iraq. The then- Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, Stephen Harper, objected strongly. He went so far as to co-author an article in the New York Times indicating that the refusal of the Canadian government to join the US-led invasion of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq was shameful and a betrayal of the underlying principles on which Western civilization is based.

Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien Receives a Standing Ovation from the Liberal Majority in the Canadian House of Commons in 2003 for Refusing to Join with the US-Led Invasion of the Iraq under President Saddam Hussein.

Now Harper is getting his wish. Under his leadership of the federal government, Canada is joining the United States and other polities in yet another US-led invasion of Iraq. This time around the agenda seems to be to include the objective of overthrowing the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. Ironically Syria’s Armed Forces right now are shouldering the main military brunt of opposing the incursions of ISIL, the weird non-state entity that misrepresents itself to the world as the Islamic state.

The violent events in Ottawa, including the death of Canadian soldier who was ceremonially protecting Canada’s main war memorial, are in my view deeply bound up with Harper’s very zealous efforts to follow the US example of putting Canadian Armed Forces primarily in the service of Israeli plans for expansion. I would say a very rapid Israelification of public discourse is taking place in Canada as those in Harper’s circle, including a large swath of the Canadian media, engage in increasingly broad and open-ended references to “terrorism” as the justification for a huge expansion of police powers of the federal executive branch.

There are reports circulating in recent days that by executive order a whole new system of command in control is being set up in Canada that mirrors the so-called Homeland Security regime in the United States that has arguably not returned since 9/11 from the state of emergency declared that day. This initiative is being informally dubbed Track B.

Without any parliamentary or judicial oversight whatsoever, and before any credible third-party investigation has taken place of the violent events in Ottawa on Oct. 22, Track B is reportedly being put in place. It would equip police and special para-military units with unlimited powers of arrest and detention. It would authorize the creation of Canadian secret prisons, the kind of black sites notorious for the sadism of their jailers and the stink of their torture chambers.

Track B would advance the issuing of open ended warrants to incarcerate anyone indefinitely without due process or Habeas Corpus. This apparent Israelification of the Canadian police state offers yet more proof that Vladimir Putin was completely justified in his recent Valdai address in pointing out that the old notions of the rule of law have been thrown aside both internationally and within the domestic realms of many governments.

2. Ochsenreiter: Before we get into the details of what did or did not happen in Ottawa on Oct. 22, are there other contextual comments you would like to make.

Hall: Yes. I think it instructive to do a fast history of the rapid-fire alterations in Canada’s political culture between 2003 and the most recent federal election of 2011 that gave Harper his majority of seats in the House of Commons. It should be underlined, however, that this win gave Harper a tainted mandate because of judicial findings that the election of 2011 involved fraud. Similarly a court in Canada ruled that the federal election of 2006, when the Harper’s party first replaced the Liberals in a minority government situation, involved accounting fraud and overspending.

About the relationship between the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Harper’s preoccupation with building up the Canadian police state a colleague of mine, Prof. John McMurtry, has emphasized what transpired in the federal election of 2006. Prof. McMurtry has written,

“Harper also owes his political life to the RCMP. After a non-confidence vote triggered the 2006 election, RCMP commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli instructed his staff to include former Liberal finance minister Ralph Goodale’s name in a news release announcing a criminal investigation. This reversed the stench of the Harper regime’s continuous scandals and corruption onto the Liberals by a false RCMP smear. As a former top insider of the Tory party advised me, “the RCMP won the election for Harper”. The elected Harper regime then surrounded the RCMP with blocks to silence all facts – the signature operation – so the truly deepest scandal of the era proceeded with impunity to the present day. So it is not surprising that CSIS, the RCMP and Harper are collaborating to get more secret powers for the police and spooks in return for serving Harper’s underlying agenda.”

In 2003 the Liberal Party, who in that era was sometimes referred to as Canada’s natural governing part, held 172 of 301 seats in the House of Commons. In 2011 the Liberal went down to 34 seats and the Conservatives took 166 seats. This fundamental reconfiguration of Canada’s political landscape didn’t happen without a lot of help from outside powers. As part of the process the centrist Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, an indigenous organization rooted in Tory opposition to the revolutionary secessionists who founded the United States, was basically eliminated. The Progressive Conservative Party was brought to an end to be replaced by a political operation which is best understood as a Canadian branch plant of the US Republican Party. The new entity significantly dropped the word “progressive” from its label, advertising itself simply as the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC)

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper Addressing the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, in Jerusalem in January 2014.

In my view the deeper meaning of what transpired began to come into sharp focus early in 2014 when Stephen Harper addressed the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, the first time a Canadian prime minister has ever done so. Harper was accompanied in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv by an entourage of 200 supporters. This entourage was made of up leading representatives of his main political base composed primarily of Jewish and Christian Zionists. Harper was given a standing ovation led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The politicians followed Netanyahu’s lead in rising to their feet when Harper took such a hard line on the issue of the Israeli settlements that two Palestinian members of the Knesset walked out in protest.

In the speech Harper promised that he would never criticize the Israeli government publicly, a promise whose meaning would not become fully clear until July when the Canadian government fully sanctioned the Israeli line that the murderous invasion of the Gazan concentration camp in Operation Protective Edge was an act of Israeli self-defense rather than a war crime. Harper condemned those that do criticize Israel for violating the human rights of the Palestinian people as purveyors of a sophisticated new form of virulent anti-Semitism.

Up until this past week, 2014 has not been a good year for Prime Minister Harper politically. He has been dogged by a scandal involving certain payments from his office to Senator Mike Duffy, formerly a famous TV commentator employed by CTV. The CTV’s Lead Reporter on Parliament Hill was Mike Duffy. CTV’s Mike Duffy unethically used his journalistic podium to help transform Harper’s political party into Canada’s governing party. Harper has been lagging in the polls behind the Liberals, now led by Justin Trudeau. Now in his mid-40s, Justin is the bright and very telegenic son of Canada’s former prime minister, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. Many see the elder Trudeau as the most dynamic personality ever to lead Canada, the very symbol of almost everything Harper entered politics to change.

The next Canadian election is scheduled for just under a year from now so the political season is upon us. There is a court case where Senator Duffy is being prosecuted for accepting a bribe from the prime minister’s office, a trial that seemed guaranteed to put Harper in even deeper political trouble. But of course its highly possible that Harper will be able to divert attention from the scandals engulfing him by changing the subject to war mania. The war agenda involves the Prime Minister granting his own executive branch greatly expanded police powers, the public aspect of which coincidentally came before Parliament just as the Ottawa shooter episode flashed into the headlines.

Senator Mike Duffy and Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Happier Times. As a CTV reporter, Duffy was Elevated to the Senate for Violating his Journalistic Objectivity by Openly Campaigning for the CPC while he was Still a Journalist. Now Duffy is Charged with Accepting a Bribe from the Prime Minister’s Office. The War on ISIL and the Ottawa Shooter Episode is Helping Harper Change the Subject of Political Discourse in Canada from the Political Scandal Engulfing Him to the Threat of Terrorism.

Predictably the mainstream media here immediately fell into line, eschewing all skepticism while peddling flag waving patriotism aimed supposedly at quelling “homegrown terror.” Meanwhile Canadian jets, military advisers and special forces join the international coalition of assault squads pointed against the weird ISIL concoction whose aim seems to be to express in real life every Islamophobic stereotype cultivated by Hollywood and, since 9/11, by almost every major media venue in the so-called Western world.

Harper is quite simply infatuated by the mystique of war and the added executive powers his office can claim domestically and internationally in a wartime environment. As I see it, Harper came to power in 2006 riding the wave of militaristic energy generated by a specious interpretation of what happened on 9/11. To this day this pivotal event has never been subjected to a credible, third-party investigation unconnected to partisan political agendas. On becoming Prime Minister Harper increased his Liberal predecessors commitment to NATO’s war mission in Afghanistan. He visited the Canadian contingent in the Eurasian country often and built up his warrior’s personae by having himself filmed frequently with Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan.

As is being well reflected in the coverage of the lethal events at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa, Harper is trying to blank out the reputation of Canadian Armed Forces as peacekeepers rather than belligerents. This image of Canada as a peace keeping nation goes back to the term of Liberal Prime Minister, Lester Pearson. Pearson first suggested a UN peace keeping mission at the height of the Cold War to ease tensions in Egypt after the government of Gamal Abdul Nasser seized control of the Suez Canal in 1956.

Harper has been very much a war hawk when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine. His foreign minister, John Baird, is very aggressive in highlighting Canada’s unconditional support for Israel as the primary centrepiece of Canada’s orientation to the rest of the world. Harper himself seems to picture his role as a Canadian equivalent to that of the US president who derives enormous power from his or her dual role as US Commander-In-Chief. Harper’s immersion in the military aspects of his executive power translates into his awkward relationship with the unwritten constitution Canada inherited from Great Britain and the parliamentary democracy of the Westminster system.

In spite of the fact that citizens do not vote directly for a Canadian prime minister like they do for an American president, Harper’s self-conception as chief executive officer of a Canadian republic, but without the checks and balances, puts him at odds with the oldest strains of Canada’s constitutional heritage. Harper’s contempt for Parliament was reflected in his repeated shutting down of Canada’s Parliament under an element of the unwritten constitution known as prorogation. In Canada the decision to shut down a parliamentary session prematurely technically belongs exclusively to the Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty the Queen delegates this power of prorogation to her regal representative in Ottawa, the Governor General of Canada.

The first prorogation took place in late 2008 under conditions where Harper’s Conservative Party was about to lose power through a coalition of three opposing political parties that collectively held more seats than the Conservative Party. Very clearly Harper imposed improper political pressure on the Queen’s representative to block a vote of no confidence in the Canadian House of Commons. Harper would have no longer been prime minister if such a vote had been allowed to go forward which it should have if Canada’s constitution had been respected. In 2008 and 2009 Harper again applied inappropriate political pressure on the Queen’s representative just as a parliamentary committee was turning up persuasive evidence that Canadian Armed Forces had been regularly handing over prisoners to Afghani forces for torture. If this line of disclosure had continued it is perfectly possible that Canadian officials right up to the prime minister would have faced criminal procedures at the International Court of Justice in the Hague for violating prohibitions on torture.

The current session of Parliament was just about to begin when the shooting episode at the war memorial and in the hallways of the Canadian parliament broke out. The late start of parliament deep into the autumn of 2014 came about because of yet another Crown decision to grant Stephen Harper his request for prorogation. The whole delicate structure of Canada’s parliamentary democracy depends on the capacity of the Queen’s representative to exercise a form of judicial and non-partisan independence distinct from the branch of the Canadian government devoted to partisan politics.

This political independence of the Governor General’s office has become a sad hoax ever since the practice developed of the Queen accepting automatically the advice of successive prime ministers in filling the job of Canadian Governor General. This appointment procedure has politicized the Office of Governor General. The Queen’s representative in the Dominion of Canada is meant to exist outside of political influence peddling. In Canada at this time the Governor General is His Excellency David Johnston. The current Queen’s representative won the current prime minister’s approval when Mr. Johnson, then a private citizen, drew up the terms of reference for an investigation into the role of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney in Air Canada’s purchase of a number of European Airbuses. The affect of Johnston’s intervention was to distance Stephen Harper from the scandal that developed after it was shown that Mulroney had accepted kickbacks from the European airplane manufacturers through the agency of Karlheinz Schreiber and Bavarian premier Franz Josef Strauss.

This background information I hope helps establish that Canada as we have known it is profoundly imperilled by an unscrupulous prime minister who, I am convinced, would have no qualms whatsoever to violate any rules or laws, domestically or internationally, if he deems that such action is necessary to retain the country’s top job or to expand his own prime ministerial powers. I hope this background information helps expose that conscientious citizens in Canada and international observers outside have every reason to be deeply skeptical of the explanations officialdom has given us concerning what happened on Oct. 22.

 3.Ochsenreter: So explain for us please what you understand to have happened or not to have happened on Oct. 22 just as the Canadian government was about to open a new parliamentary session. We understand that the main agenda item was to put in place the complex of policies and laws surrounding the federal government’s commitment to invade Iraq and Syria in the name of fighting terrorism both internationally and domestically. Who was the shooter, what happened in the prelude to Oct. 22, and how credible or not is the government’s account of what happened?

Hall: As I awoke on the morning of Oct. 22 the regular hourly news broadcast by the Crown Corporation, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, featured a live report of the shooting at the War Memorial, the main War Cenotaph in Ottawa just a short distance to Parliament Hill. I know the site well. It is much less than a mile from Parliament Hill. When I heard the initial radio report there was no information about the subsequent drama about to break out in the main citadel of Canada’s diminishing democracy. Presumably the shooting in the Parliament Building had not yet happened.

Screen-Shot-2014-11-02-at-8.24.16-PM

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-2.42.18-PM1

Significantly the information on the alleged shooter’s identity initially came from unnamed US government authorities that are said to have fed the story to Reuters. Many reports also cite the American broadcaster CBS as the originating point of the widely reported story on the alleged shooter’s identity. In an early CBS News report the alleged shooter’s name was given as Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau. His birth name was reported as Michael Joseph Hall. These same US sources described the alleged shooter as a “recent convert to Islam,” a person on a watch list of “high-risk travellers” deemed suspicious and dangerous by the FBI.

The family connections of the accused man deserve some careful and explicit attention. The accused individual is now supposedly dead, although as far as I know no body has been yet been produced to support the claim. No explanation has been produced to account for the transformation of Michael Joseph Hall into Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. His mother’s name is Susan Bibeau and the name of his father is Bulgasem Zehaf who was born in Libya. Michael’s parents divorced in 1999 when their son was 17. Where did the name “Hall” initially come from? Is the accused’s adoption of the name Michael Zehaf-Bibeau or, as initially reported, Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau, somehow connected to his alleged recent conversion to Islam?

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-2.43.21-PM

There have been many conflicting reports of the number of shooters involved with often conflict reports of what precisely took place over the course of Oct. 22.

Susan Bibeau is Director General of Canada’s federal Immigration Department. In other words, the alleged shooter’s mother is the top administrative official in Canada overseeing the issuing of all passports. She is thus a top ranking official in Stephen Harper’s government. Ms. Bibeau’s position might have implications for the claim that the alleged shooter was not able to get a Canadian passport. The US sources reported that Michael wanted a passport to go to Syria to join ISIL, a evocative story line that is immensely useful to those seeking to exploit the episode to connect the domestic and international sides of the US-led coalition’s anti-ISIL war. Susan Bibeau has explained that the real story is that her son wanted to travel to Saudi Arabia.

Michael’s father is reported to have left Libya for Canada because he was unhappy with the somewhat socialistic government of the late Muammar Gaddafi. It is reported that he returned to Libya in 2011 to join the actions of the NATO-backed so-called rebels who wanted to overthrow Gaddafi’s regime. Many of these anti-Gaddafi groups were at the time identified as being connected to al-Qaeda. In other words, the father of the alleged shooter was associated with the al-Qaeda-related groups of mercenaries that did overthrow Gaddafi. The rebel activities culminated in Gaddafi being sodomized and then murdered in cold blood to the applause of many governments including that of Stephen Harper in Canada. Some of the paid mercenary soldiers in Libya moved onto Syria where they received support from Turkey, Western governments, and the city state sheikhdoms of the Persian Gulf. Many of the foreign-backed fighters in Syria were also connected to al-Qaeda, the alleged culprits of 9/11. The rise of ISIL can be interpreted as a sort of rebranding of Islamic fighting forces previously associate with al-Qaeda.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-4.49.37-PM-244x320

Yet another conflicting account suggesting there were two masked figures, one who did not accompany the other when he entered the Centre Block. Thanks to Joshua Froze for this item.

It was reported in the Washington Times that Michael’s father, Bulgasem, spent time in a Libyan prison having been arrested in his native city of Zawiya. When he returned to Montreal after his ordeal it was reported that, “Mr. Zahaf said the main prison in the city was overflowing with inmates who were forced to live in subhuman conditions and were routinely tortured by their captors.”

The son of Bulgasem and Ms. Bibeau spent much of his own life committing criminal acts, some of which earned him criminal charges. Among the crimes he committed were credit card fraud, drunk driving, theft, possession of a deadly weapon, escaping custody (twice) and possession of marijuana and PCP. In late 2011 he was charged with robbery in Vancouver. He plea bargained, pleading guilty to the lesser charge of uttering threats. In spite of his very long record the Judge sentenced the convicted man to one day in jail. It was after this day in jail that the alleged shooter allegedly converted to Islam, apparently acting in a way that raised red flags about him at the mosques he attended.

The author of the blog from whom I have gleaned much of this biographical information asks, “Did they use him like our FBI uses various career criminals who are facing a shit-load of serious time, to run around trying to find Muslims to set-up in entrapment schemes so they could create a looming terrorist attack and then foil it at the last minute?”

 http://willyloman.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/ottawa-shooting-the-really-really-really-odd-story-of-michael-zehaf-bibeau/

Rather than stay with his mother while he was in the Ottawa area the alleged shooter is said to have stayed in a homeless shelter. Nevertheless it is said he was able to purchase a car the day before he allegedly shot Corporal Cirillo. Then it is alleged that Zahef-Bibeau was himself shot inside Canada’s core Parliament Building. The person credited with killing the alleged killer of Corporal Cirillo is the Sergeant-at-arms of the House of Commons, Kevin Vickers.

Because of his criminal record, the alleged shooter was prohibited from having firearms. Much debate has ensued about whether or not the alleged shooter was motivated by a clear political agenda of engagement in terrorism or whether he should be understood as a drug-addicted and very confused man whose crimes had more to do with his own personal crisis that some desire to join ISIL and take part in violent jihad.

4. Ochsenreiter: There are some reports of some major drill involving police and Armed Forces that were underway on Oct. 22. Some investigators associate staged violent events with drills approximating the course of violent events. Could you please enlighten us on this subject.  

Hall: The fact that US sources were the originating site of the basic explanation of the violent acts in the Canadian capital may well be connected to the existence of a major Canada-US “Homeland Security” Drill codenamed Determined Dragon. This drill was underway when the shooting occurred. The period between Oct. 20 and Oct. 29 is described as the “execution phase” of the drill meant to improve the “interface” of emergency measures operations for “homeland defense and homeland security missions” in “defense of North America and global defence.”

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-4.42.15-PM-640x531

The drill linked something known as the Canadian Joint Action Command with NORAD (North American Areospace Defense Command), the United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) and the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). Some observers of the events of Oct. 22 were fast to point out that the concurrence of military and police “drills” involving scenarios similar to actual acts of unexpected violence are often the hallmark of false flag events.

False flag events are those where individuals or groups are covertly manipulated to commit or seem to commit heinous acts in order to justify various actions including ramping up police powers, surveillance powers, and the initiation of aggressive warfare. In his volume Synthetic Terror, Webster Tarplay pointed to 46 drills that ran concurrently with the events of 9/11. Some of these drills approximated some of the scenarios that unfolded on 9/11 creating understandable confusion and chaos among, for instance, air traffic controllers.

One could easily imagine that four similarly dressed individuals were part of a drill when they assembled on Parliament Hill just before the alleged shooter arrived to carry out the second phase of his supposed jihadist mission. The widely reported story is that Zehaf-Bideau shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo at Canada’s War Cenotaph. He allegedly attempted to shoot and kill a second soldier but missed. Then he is said to have gotten back in his Toyota Corolla sedan, which he apparently purchased the day before.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-5.06.50-PM-640x340

These four individuals converge concurrently just before the alleged shooter’s car approaches Parliament Hill. When the car pulls up they all move toward the Corolla as if to greet it. What is going on here? The picture is at 5:08 of the You Tube

       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7zANAFd58M

In any case it’s interesting that the alleged shooter had the means to purchase a used car even though he was reportedly staying at a homeless shelter. The official account would have the alleged shooter of Corporal Cirillo, whose death was reported upon almost immediately on national radio, get into his car and drive undetected, unchallenged and certainly unobstructed to Parliament Hill. The film above was released by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The footage is described as that from security cameras. In the You Tube above four young and very fit men, all similarly dressed in suits and brief cases, act at first as a greeting party seemingly waiting for the newly-purchased vehicle to arrive. When the car does pull up in front of the big park area outside of the Parliament Buildings the four men all approach the vehicle in unison. They then run away in unison when the individual subsequently identified as Zehaf-Bibeau gets out. Are these apparently related individuals so-called “crisis actors?”

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-6.04.02-PM-223x320

The next scene shown by the RCMP pictures the alleged shooter running along the wall of one of the outlying Parliament structures. This area in front of the Parliament Buildings is heavily traveled by staff and by tourists. Many police are regularly assigned to watch this area. How was it possible for the alleged shooter, who is said to have been carrying a rifle, to be prancing around this very closely scrutinized public space without being noticed? Or was there some determination on high that he should not be noticed, that he should be allowed entry into the main entrance way of the main Parliament Building?

In the RCMP’s video presentation allegedly showing the sequence of events following the alleged shooter’s arrival on Parliament Hill, the subject is so far from the security camera filming him that he cannot be clearly identified. The subject is shown approaching a high-end car whose driver is said to be on call to transport a high-ranking government of Canada official. After commandeering the car, rifle openly in hand, the supposed jihadist then drives towards Parliament’s main entrance way. One might think in watching the RCMP’s video that the alleged shooter is getting a police escort in his short trip. Two police cruisers pull in behind the commandeered vehicle and drive slowly behind it. No sirens are blaring or police lights flashing. A bus, truck or large van pulls in behind the commandeered car in a way that seems almost designed to shield it from any disruption in its short trip. The alleged Shooter then parks the vehicle and enters the hallway separating the House of Commons Chamber from the Senate Chamber. At a leisurely pace police officers subsequently emerge from their own cars have followed the subject to his destination.

There is a lot of video tape giving various angles of what happened inside the central Parliament building although none of it that I have seen gets anywhere near the alleged killing of the alleged shooter of Corporal Cirillo. Many camera crews were on site and were not evacuated in whatever police procedures took place culminating in many shoots being fired allegedly somewhere in the area of the internal entrance way to the Parliamentary Library.

Many other facets of the government story of the events of Oct. 22 are far from having been proven conclusively. There are, for instance, many strange elements in the videos of the para-medical treatments meted out after the shooting on the site of the War Memorial after the alleged shooting took place. For instance Cpl. Branden Stevenson, the second soldier guarding the sacred monument, is not among those pictured in the group trying to save Cpl. Cirillo’s life. Where did he go?

The efforts to pump the victim’s chest cage seem demonstrably problematic. The video scenes of what happened after Zehaf-Bibeau entered Parliament also raise many questions. Like officialdom’s story of what happened on 9/11, almost every aspect the official account of what happened in the area of Parliament Hill on Oct. 22 seems to cry out for skeptical, evidence-based investigation.

5. Ochsenreiter: How did the media report the events?

Hall: In Canada there is a well-known deference to authority that tends to preclude the asking of awkward and possibly embarrassing questions of public officials especially in times of emergency and tragedy. That is certainly the case here. The night of the tragedy Rex Murphy did one of his frequent commentaries on the nightly national news report of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Murphy made his mark at the CBC praising Stephen Harper when he travelled to Afghanistan to embrace Canada’s military role in combatting what were initially depicted as the Islamic terrorist forces said to be primarily responsible for the attack on the United States on 9/11. His role at the CBC has been the subject of considerable controversy after it was reported that he accepts significant sums of money from oil companies on whose activities he reports on the CBC.

Murphy depicted the alleged shooter as a psychotic monster whose depravity he contrasted with the heroic greatness of fallen Corporal Cirillo and the Sergeant-at-arms of the House of Commons, Kevin Vickers. Vickers is credited with shooting the interloper at point-blank range although some reports indicate that many individuals had a hand in killing the supposed jihadist. Murphy’s reporting epitomizes the diagnosis of many that the CBC is fast becoming a state broadcaster rather than an impartial public broadcaster devoted to balanced reporting. This diagnosis is similar to that often applied to the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

In another era the CBC might have been considered the progressive wing of Canada’s constellation of media outlets. That situation, however, is fast changing rapidly. The reporting of Sun News, which is in the process of amalgamating with PostMedia Corporation, has been predictably inspired by the war agenda. Its operatives are firmly behind Harper’s desire to amplify the terrorist threat as the key to his transformation of Canadian institutions into his own personal medium of unassailable authority. The Sun Media-Post Media print publications and TV outlets predictably push an Israeliocentric line of analysis that conforms quite consistently to the propaganda for aggressive warfare whose most iconographic expression is the media empire of Rupert Murdoch and especially Fox News in the United States.

excerpt from the Mitrovica article.

There has been some commentary putting in the forefront the fact that Zehaf-Bibeau is, or has been, addicted to crack-cocaine, and that he may suffer from mental illness. This line of analysis is leading some to question how the alleged actions of a troubled individual who seems to have fallen between the cracks of impoverished and radically downsized social services agencies in Canada can really be held up as the reason to further empower the Canadian police state in the name of the latest iteration of the so-called Global War on Terror. Linda McQuaig has gone beyond this discussion in her article, “For Stephen Harper Fear Works.” She writes, The real danger here is that we will be terrorized — not by terrorists or mentally ill killers, but by Stephen Harper — into accepting an aggressive ‘war on terror’ agenda. Those who don’t jump on board will soon get the message: ‘If you’re not fighting terrorism, you’re with the terrorists.’”

 http://www.ipolitics.ca/2014/10/29/for-stephen-harper-fear-works/

Andrew Mitrovica, who used to work at Canada’s Globe and Mail in the days before those directing this influential Canadian media outlet abandoned their journalistic integrity, did a significant commentary on how Canadians have been betrayed by a press corps that operates primarily as stenographers for officialdom’s press releases. In a fairly popular web publication entitled, iPolitics Mitrovica explained that “Canada’s so-called media and political ‘elites’ abandoned” any semblance of “history, context, perspective, understanding, skepticism and thoughtfulness…. In their stead, we got a week-long diet of chest-thumping patriotic clichés, cheap, meaningless hyperbole and tropes that, taken together, have already manufactured widespread consent for what will surely be another assault on our rights and freedoms engineered by a cynical Conservative government.”

6. Ochsenreiter: You seem very suspicious that the official story is misrepresenting the truth or holding back key elements of the truth.

Hall: Yes. I thinks that’s fair comment. I think this episode is quite probably yet another illustration of the type of massive abuse of power that will almost certainly continue to undermine what is left of our democracies in the post-9/11 world. This erosion will persist as long as we do not address collectively the fable of 9/11 as it was foisted on us to substantiate the image of the post-Cold War world as one bedeviled by a clash of civilizations. At the core of this very elaborate psychological operation is the image of “the West” as essentially a Judeo-Christian construct poised against the worldwide community of Islam. Benjamin Netanyahu laid out the master narrative of this way of viewing the world in an edited book of conference proceedings he put together in 1979. The key to the work is well expressed in its title: Terrorism: How the West Can Win.

The continuation of the Global War on Terror, now with ISIL being made to fill the role previously assigned to the all-purpose boogeyman of al-Qaeda after the events of 9/11, depends on producing a constant flow of international and domestic events like the one we saw in Ottawa on Oct. 22. I am not flatly denying that a recent convert to Islam really did go on a murderous rampage acting on what he thought was his own divinely-inspired mission. Similarly, I am not ruling out that the alleged shooter was a troubled and alienated man caught up in some internal crisis that is best understood as a manifestation of personal and/or social breakdown.

My main contention at this time, however, is that there is no persuasive evidentiary basis to accept at face value most aspects of the government’s interpretation of not only what happened, but especially why it happened. Indeed, the coincidence of the timing of the Ottawa shooting on the first day of this particular parliamentary session, whose centerpiece is bound to be the war on the non-state entity that calls itself the Islamic State, is simply too stupendous not to arouse suspicion.

Seeing the way this debacle was seized upon by the international media as a kind of precautionary tale to illustrate the linkage between the domestic and international facets of the War Against ISIL also makes me wonder what is going on with the PR campaign to harness public opinion to the politics of this many-faceted police and military campaign. In today’s world the promotion of war forms the most lucrative of all potential projects for the PR industry that came to maturity in the context of the Cold War.

A pioneer of Madison Avenue’s PR promotion of war is Edward Bernays. The nephew of Sigmund Freud, Bernays publicized a concocted fable in 1954 of indigenous freedom fighters rising up to oppose communism in Guatemala. Using various performance tricks and forgeries for the press a myth was created to cover over the reality of a US-backed coup aimed at overturning the land reforms of Guatemala’s elected leader, Jacobo Arbenz. Years later the world’s largest PR firm, Hill and Knowlton, was hired in 1990 to sell Americans on President George H.W. Bush’s plan to invade Iraq with the goal of preventing Iraq from taking control of contested Kuwaiti oil fields.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-8.09.34-PM-320x317

The giant PR Firm of Hill and Knowlton was retained by the White House of President George H.W. Bush in 1990 to sell the American people a war against the Iraqi government then led by Saddam Hussein. The company employed the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Canada and the United States to defraud Congress and the US media with a fabricated story about Iraqi soldiers ripping Kuwaiti babies from incubators to kill them.

The scheme infamously led to Congressional hearings where the daughter of Kuwait’s ambassador to the USA and Canada presented a fictional story as fact. Feigning tears and trauma, the girl known solely as “Nayirah” alleged, falsely we now know, that the army of Saddam Hussein had taken Kuwaiti babies from incubators to smash them lethally to the floor. The scam worked. Public opinion was manufactured to support the invasion plans of the 41st president of the USA. Of course no one went to jail for this most consequential defrauding of the public.

Seen through the lens of prior PR campaigns aimed at selling war through fraud and disinformation it becomes more possible to imagine that police and soldiers in Ottawa on Oct. 22 were encouraged to put on a good show for the cameras. Their intensively photographed actions provided pictorial grist for the international media. Their performances sent the desired signals to whole populations that the world is embarking on a new and even more dangerous phase of the never ending 9/11 Wars. The PR message would be that average citizens have no choice but to embrace on an even larger scale the need to operate our societies according to martial values and principles. The events in Ottawa on Oct. 22 were spun purposely or inadvertently to edify a culture of fear connected to the dehumanizing demonization of those subjected to the most severe indignities of Islamophobia, a plague that is already reaching epidemic proportions. Ultimately these indignities corrode the humanity of both those on the delivering and receiving ends of this travesty.

The heavily publicized story about events in the Canadian capital released originally from anonymous government sources in the United States provided a powerful marketing spin to promote the goal of expanding the powers and budgets of the already formidable forces of state coercion. Harper wasted no time in addressing the Canadian nation by doing his best imitation of former US President George W. Bush in the days and weeks following 9/11. His over-the-top speech was immediately and magnificently spoofed in Great Britain by the great comic controversialist, Russell Brand. Stephen Colbert provided a mirror image to Brand with a comic twist that went along with and amplified the dominant narrative. One of Harper’s lead spin doctors, Rex Murphy, also took immediately to the CBC airwaves with his own propagandistic diatribe. Its calculated effect was to urge along the remaking of Canada as a warrior state modelled in the image of Israel.

More, much more, is at stake in this saga than the political future of a single country or of the current Canadian prime minister. The larger objective of the drill that may have been rendered real, or, in other words, switched “live” on Oct. 22, might well have been to clear aside perceptual obstacles to a major invasion by many of the world’s most heavily armed powers, including the United States. The immediate target of this invasion is some of the most strategic turf in the Middle East. The larger agenda would seem to be, for starters, the breakup of Syria and Iraq in ways that could fulfill the divide-and-conquer plans first articulated by the Israeli geopolitical strategist Oded Yinon in the mid-1980s.

The history of false flag terrorism, a subject almost never covered in the mainstream media, is rife with examples of patsies set up as murderers. Lee Harvey Oswald would be an example of one supposed “lone gunman,” the archetype for the “lone wolf” scenario now being advanced in the case of the Ottawa shooter. A key question to be addressed is the role of those police state observers said to be keeping a close eye on the former Michael Joseph Hall, the current Michael Abdul Zehaf-Bibeau. Did these supposed observers in our so-called national security services have any role in the alleged Ottawa shooter’s supposed conversion to Islam, in the process that police officials as well as the current Canadian Prime Minister are very anxious to identify as “radicalization?”

Were those security officials or their agents and informers involved with the alleged Ottawa shooter actually handlers who had identified the mental instabilities of a vulnerable individual? Might such handlers have viewed Zehaf-Bibeau as an asset to be exploited? Was the alleged killer of Corporal Cirillo, a Canadian soldier apparently taken down while nobly protecting Canada’s main shrine to our fallen soldiers, a person whose extensive criminal record made him vulnerable to manipulation? Did Zahef-Bibeau receive suggestive help in coming to the conclusion that he should commit acts that would not advance the cause of Islam but would advance dramatically the interests of Stephen Harper and his war cabinet? Who led Zahef-Bibeau through his recent conversion to Islam? What happened along the way to his allegedly committing acts that some would view as essential to the process of bringing public opinion to the service of a vast establishment that has been making so-called “national security” into a huge growth industry?

There is a large and many-faceted academic literature on the subject of so-called intelligence agencies like the CIA, Mossad, MI6, BND, and CSIS in the underground world where very real conspiracies are hatched and implemented in ways that remain hidden for years. Operation Gladio is one such example. Disclosures concerning Operation Gladio expose how acts initially depicted as terrorists’ violence were enacted at the behest of NATO operatives and other deep state operatives. The end game of this activity was to make sure that public opinion in countries like Greece and Italy remained hostile to communists or suspected communists.

Swiss academic Daniel Ganser has documented the Gladio story, suggesting it provides a possible lens through which to view what really transpired on 9/11. Richard Cottrell has added scope and depth to the disclosures with his comprehensive volume, Gladio: NATO’s Dagger at the Heart of Europe. The writings of Nafeez Ahmed are also very strong on this subject of the amazingly close and complex connections between intelligence services in the West and Islamic groups and individuals placed very high on many terrorist watch lists.

Berkeley Professor Peter Dale Scott, the son of a powerhouse of Canadian social democracy, F. R. Scott, has written prolifically on the subject of deep state intrigue involving intelligence agency assets who mix their activities in the terrorist trade with the drug trade and the nuclear trade. This whole complex of inter-related activities is bound up in a strange undercover world of oil and gas exploitation in the vast pipelinestan region of Eurasia. The large literature of the scandalous global operations of the Pakistani-and-Saudi-based Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), a favourite financial institution for the CIA, the Bushes, the bin Ladens and the Afghan mujahadeen, are very revealing when it comes to illuminating the vast distance between how officialdom tells us the world runs and how the world actually runs.

The list of cases where the FBI uses well-paid agents and informants in the effort to foment, facilitate and then apprehend acts of police-instigated, police-enabled violence – act of false flag terrorism – is becoming very long. As Guelph University’s Professor Michael Keefer has made very clear with his exemplary investigative reporting of the so-called Toronto 18, this form of entrapment exists in Canada as well as in the United States. The Toronto 18 case concerns a group of Muslim youth in the Toronto area who were encouraged by a highly-paid Islamic undercover agent working for the federal police to commit violent acts in 2006.

Then in 2010 Canada’s police and media establishment went into hysteria-generating overdrive publicizing “homegrown terrorism” as a huge problem for Canada. Without actual proof or any due process whatsoever the Globe and Mail proclaimed the police discovery of a terrorist plot stretching “from Ottawa across the globe to Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Dubai…The call of jihad rings far and wide. What terrifies in the terrorism arrests” the editorialists proclaimed, “is that individuals who seem to be, and may in fact be, well integrated into their communities succumb, nevertheless, to the call of jihad.” The case focused on a Dr. Khurran Sher, then a 28 year old recent graduate of McGill University’s medical school. Those profiling him in the media also emphasized that Dr. Sher was an avid ball hockey player as well as a former contestant on Canadian Idol. In recent months Dr. Sher was found in court to be not guilty on all charges. In its small news report describing the not-guilty outcome the Globe and Mail made no apology for years earlier convicting this man in the court of public opinion.

The Ottawa shooter story has been covered by Tony Cartalucci. In an article in the Land Destroyer Report Cartalucci compares the fate of Zahef-Bibeau to that of a Rochester man of Yemani background, Mufid A. Elfgeeh. Elfgeeh was charged with trying to deliver three individuals to ISIL. He was also charged with plotting to kill American soldiers returning from Iraq. All three individuals that Elfgeeh allegedly tried to recruit and send along to Syria were undercover FBI informants. Cartalucci compares the Zahet-Bibeau and Elfgeeh case. The FBI script to “entrap” Elfgeeh “would be followed almost to the letter in live attacks subsequently carried out in Canada.”

In both the Elfgeeh and Zahef-Bibeau cases both the Canadian and US governments had both men under surveillance. Both were listed as “high risk travellers” whose passports had been revoked. Cartalucci concludes “It is very likely that the recent attacks in Canada involved at least one “informant” working for the FBI. Because the FBI uses confidential informants to handle suspects, if a plot is switched “live,” the informant will be implicated as an accomplice and the FBI’s covert role will remain uncompromised…. With both suspects having been on both US and Canada watch lists, it is very likely undercover agencies were involved in either one or both cases. While many possibilities exist, Western security agencies should be among the first suspects considered as potential collaborators.”

7. Ochsenreiter: Do you have any other thoughts on this matter, Prof. Hall, reflections that might help round out your analysis of this matter.

Hall: It should be noted that on Oct. 20 another convert to Islam, Martin Couture-Rouleau, drove down two Canadian soldiers killing one of them in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu in Quebec. After a car chase Couture-Rouleau was shot and killed by police. This young man in his mid-20s was on a watch list and had already had his passport revoked. The same questions about the role of possible informants and agents in the Zahef-Bibeau case could also be posed concerning the sequence of events leading to the death of a Canadian soldier in this hit-and-run case.

Tony Cartalucci has speculated that the gruesome spectacle of ISIL’s beheadings, which may have been in whole or in part simulated for the cameras, did not arouse a sufficient level of public abhorrence to translate into a high level of public support for another open ended military intervention in the Middle East. This consideration may have been a factor in the sequence of events that culminated in rendering predictions real that ISIL’s hostilities would soon be visited on North American and European countries.

Another subject which I think deserves attention is the widely disseminated photograph depicting a gun wielding Zahef-Bibeau supposedly at the Canadian war memorial at the actual moment he allegedly killed Corporal Cirillo. The alleged assailant is masked in a scarf of the type frequently worn in the desert regions of the Middle East. Of course this photograph went viral. It provides a damning image that would seem to create the necessary “proof” that the murder took place in the way we were told; that Zehaf-Bibeau’s alleged lethal actions on Oct. 22 were somehow the product of “radicalization” caused by Islamic extremism rather than by mental illness or the malevolent handling of a security police asset.

I haven’t yet been able to find a credible account of the image’s source. There was some controversy about whether or not the picture first appeared on an Islamic State web site and whether or not an unnamed tourist just happened to catch the image that seemingly helps make the case for the veracity of the government story.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-29-at-3.34.14-PM

I for one am skeptical about the source and rapid dissemination of the shooter image to give pictoral support to a narrative whose key elements were introduced by national security officials in the United States. The role of this potent image in effectively convicting Zahef-Bibeau in the court of public opinion before any investigation let alone any trial has taken place reminds me of a similar phenomenon that unfolded in Canada last June.

On June 4 Justin Bourque emerged from his trailer park home heavily equipped with armaments. A professional photographer just happened to be there to snap his image from the front and then from the back in the hours before Bourque is reported to have confronted the police force in his hometown of Moncton New Brunswick. His case could well have beneath it many bizarre twists and turns I shall not recount here. What I want to get at in this assessment, however, is that an image of an armed and dangerous Justin Bourque was fortuitously snapped at just the right moment and then quickly disseminated to the media by the police. What was the sequence of events that allowed this to happen? Was it by accident or was it by premeditated design that this strategic picture was snapped before any shooting spree took. Like Zahef-Bibeau’s picture with a rifle and an Arab scarf, the effect of Bourque’s shooter image was to give mental credence to an account of reality that may cover over hidden elements that might, if known, prove inconvenient for those in power?

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-9.48.43-PM-640x293

Justin Bourque’s image, caught just before his cop-killing shooting spree, was plastered across multiple venues in the Canadian media. His image was sometimes juxtaposed with those of other famous and notorious gunmen. What was the sequence of events from capturing his image before the debacle to using this image in the hours ahead to convict the man in the court of public opinion before any trial had taken place?

The CEO of a so-called independent security and intelligence monitoring group in Ottawa found an interesting way to spin the story circulating on social media that an ISIL-related web site had been the first to publish the image that was supposedly captured by an unnamed tourist at the moment when Zehaf-Bibeau allegedly shot Corporal Cirillo. This spin had the effect that it is ISIL agents, not informers or handlers for the FBI, the RCMP, or CSIS exploiting the fragility and mental illnesses of possible assets. The CEO explained to the hosts of the CBC radio show, As It Happens, “that the swift reaction to the Ottawa shootings by ISIL on social media is in keeping with its own strategy, which includes inspiring acts of violence among people who don’t subscribe to any ideological beliefs, but suffer from mental health problems” He continued. “The fact is that individuals who are already on the margins of society — suffering from mental illness in many cases — often can find inspiration from these kinds of material and carry out acts like we’ve seen over the past week.”

Mubin Shaih was an RCMP “informer” who received at least $300,000 as payment for his entrapment of young Muslims in the Greater Toronto Area in 2006. The young Canadians he helped victimize were served up to feed the effort of the new Prime Minister to help him exploit Islamophobia– the fear of so-called “homegrown terrorism”–  for political gain.

The continuing escalation of military intervention by North American and European military powers in the Middle East and throughout Eurasia more generally is a tragic turn in history diverting humanity from giving priority to the most immediate crises we collectively face. Those crises are the deep and cataclysmic ecological catastrophes engulfing humanity, indeed, engulfing all life on Earth. Prominent in the list of accelerating disasters in our world is the rapid despoliation of healthy sea life in the oceans. Our air, our food, our drinking water are toxified, actually weaponized.  The Fukushima nuclear debacle is a good example of a terrible blight on our posterity that is not being treated with anywhere near the level of international attentiveness it deserves. The biggest and most lethal polluters of all, however, are those that poison the mental environment to clear aside informed public opposition capable of blocking  military invasions on imperial capital’s most lucrative frontiers.

When the Cold War ended in the 1990s, the dominant interests in our war-based political economy could not or would not change. Our societies did not adapt well to the prospects of global peace that accompanied the end of the Cold War. A new global enemy was needed and the replacement enemy was found in Islam, a religion that has long been cynically manipulated and exploited in the course of Orientalist colonization.

One example of this kind of manipulation is the CIA’sbuilding up of the Muslim Brotherhood as a hedge against Nasserism and socialist pan-Arabism in the 1950s. Again in the 1980s the CIA assembled an international mujahadeen made up of recruits  of recruits from many countries. This mujahadeen was both a rebel force and a US proxy army aimed at overthrowing the Soviet-backed regime in Afghanistan. The project succeeded. The Soviet Union and its orbit of influence was destabilized.

Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-11.58.24-PM

Ian Johnson’s A Mosque in Munich presents a kind of spies’ perspective on twentieth-century Cold War Orientalism. Johnson describes and documents the CIA’s adoption of Nazi tactics for manipulating Islamists in order to create problems for the Soviet Union. The growth of the Muslim Brotherhood led to the Israeli cultivation of one of its offshoots. The Israeli intention was to manipulate Hamas as a way of drawing support away from Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Liberation Organization, the PLO.

The 9/11 cataclysm has set in motion a seemingly self-perpetuating cycle. The 9/11 fabrication has given rise to a corrupt and self-serving national security racket. The keepers of the national security state’s secrets are not hiding inert objects. In order to keep secrets alternative stories about how reality is constructed are required. These departures into pseudo-reality are invented, planted, disseminated and put into echo chambers of amplification and repetition. The proprietors of the national security state are basically empowered to kill and steal with impunity, all in the name of anti-terrorism. This national security racket tends to bring to power an especially dangerous breed of psychopath like those that are playing the ISIL War from sides.

It is very clear how the government version of the Ottawa shooter event conforms so tightly with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s ambition to remake Canada in the image of the Israeli warrior state.

How did the very suggestive image come to be of a masked “recent convert” to Islam allegedly killing his prey in what has been portrayed as a murderous moment of jihadist extremism? The subsequent story unfolded in a way that Zahef-Bibeau and Couture-Rouleau are no longer with us to tell their side of the story. What would they tell us if they were still alive to do so?Screen-Shot-2014-10-31-at-8.34.44-PM-640x527

Foreign policy shift puts Canada in extremists’ crosshairs

Unprecedented stance on Middle East affairs is putting Canada ‘on the map’ for armed attacks

October 23, 2014 

by

Massoud Hayoun @mhayoun Google+

A drastic shift in Canada’s Middle East policy has put the country “on the map” of international armed groups like the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), said one analyst, after two lethal attacks in the span of a week — one of which is said to have been inspired by the group.

“Canada seems to have gone far right” under the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, said Roksana Bahramitash, director of research for the Canada research chair in Islam, pluralism and globalization at the University of Montreal.

His administration’s dramatic stance on Middle Eastern affairs, what analysts call an unprecedented departure from that of previous governments, which focused their diplomacy on aid and peacekeeping missions, “puts Canada in a position it has never been in before,” she said.

Since Harper took office in 2006, Ottawa has sent funds to support the opposition in Syria’s ongoing civil war, expressed vocal support for Israel amid the ongoing offensive in Gaza and suspended diplomatic relations with Iran at a high point of tensions between Washington and Tehran over Iran’s nuclear program.

“It’s likely we will see more [attacks], not less, unless we change our leadership,” said Bahramitash.

A fragmented left and a strong coalition of conservative parties have put conservatives like Harper in office and precipitated a hawkish turn in Canada’s foreign policy, said University of Toronto political science professor Aisha Ahmad. Canada’s next general elections will be held on Oct. 19, 2015.

This month Canadian lawmakers voted to join the U.S.-led airstrikes on ISIL in Iraq. On Wednesday the government said it would not back down from its role in the strikes, after Martin Rouleau — whom Harper called an “ISIL-inspired terrorist” — ran down two soldiers on Monday, killing one. On Wednesday, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a man who Canadian media say was also inspired by ISIL, gunned down a soldier at a national monument and attempted to kill others at Ottawa’s Parliament building.

Facing a sudden rash of national security threats, some analysts point to changes in Ottawa’s reputation in the international community.

During the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran in 1980, after the U.S. severed diplomatic relations with the Islamic Republic, the Canadian Embassy in Tehran helped secure the release of the hostages after 444 days in captivity. Harper, who did not respond to Al Jazeera’s interview requests, closed that embassy in September 2012.

Ahmad said she could not recall another occasion when Ottawa had “on principle of some sort shut down diplomatic relations with a government.”

“For the longest time, we had the credibility as a power to participate in international affairs as an honest broker,” said Ahmad. “We are no longer seen that way in the Middle East. That reputation no longer exists. Clearly, that is a product of dramatic actions the government has taken on its position on Israel” and other Middle Eastern affairs.

In Jerusalem in January, Harper was reportedly heckled by Arab lawmakers at the Knesset as he made a speech in support of the Israeli government. Amnesty International criticized Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, who has been vocal about Israel holding “such a special place in [his] heart,” for not condemning the Israeli bombardment of Gaza during the conflict this summer that left well over 2,000 Palestinians and 71 Israelis dead.

“Previous administrations have attempted to strike a balance between the sides of various Middle Eastern tensions,” said Daniel Hiebert, a professor at the University of British Columbia and a co-director of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society. “The current government of Canada has a distinct policy on the Middle East compared to previous administration.”

Bahramitash, who recently traveled along the Iran-Afghanistan border, believes that taking a clearer stance on Middle Eastern affairs endangers Canadians at home and abroad.

“I was told that as a Canadian citizen, I had to be careful,” she said, referring to her recent travels. “It used to be, if you have American citizenship, you are at risk. But now Canadian citizenship is very risky.”

Ahmad said that before, “we would all feel very proud having a Canadian flag on our backpacks traveling around the world,” but those days are gone. Canada no longer boasts the soft power of being an “honest broker.”

Hiebert, meanwhile, cast doubt on a possible link between Canada’s exploits abroad and recent attacks at home.

“ISIL is very adverse to the West in general,” he said. “There is anger toward the West in general among many extremists who’ve adopted a violent approach.”

Ahmad agreed that although Canada’s more militaristic approach to international relations with the Middle East puts it “on the map” with international armed groups like ISIL, it is too soon to determine the motives behind Rouleau’s and Zehaf-Bibeau’s actions.

Citing government figures, Hiebert said that 50 to 100 Canadian nationals have joined ISIL’s ranks in the Middle East. Some, he says, may have been radicalized in Canada. Rouleau reportedly had his passport seized after trying to travel to the Middle East to join ISIL’s fight.

Hiebert acknowledges that with Canada’s new stance on Middle Eastern affairs, the country has become more entrenched in fights like the ongoing battle with ISIL.

“When you are bringing the world into your country, you are inviting the issues of the world into the country,” he said. “We hope people will leave issues at the door. And the vast majority do.”

Dr. Gareth Porter and 9/11 Truth in Tehran by Anthony J. Hall

Dr. Gareth Porter and 9/11 Truth in Tehran

… by  Anthony J. Hall

October 14th, 2014
Deconstructing the Propaganda and Subversion Underlying the “Axis of Evil” Lies 

 

Dr. Gareth Porter was the featured independent thinker at the recent New Horizon International Conference of Independent Thinkers and Film Makers. I also too took part in the proceedings. Between Sept. 27 and Oct. 4 I moved back and forth between Lethbridge Alberta and Tehran, the capital city of the Islamic Republic of Iran. For six of those days I was hosted along with other delegates in a hotel beside a very busy, beautiful and heavily wooded park in downtown Tehran.
Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 1.38.39 PM
The conference’s hosts possessed the vision, influence and organizational  skills to put together what was, in my view, by far the most free and substantial discussion on global relationships of power I have ever witnessed, let alone taken part in. Unfortunately, I cannot picture the possibility of this kind of free exchange between leading experts in their fields– real experts, not pampered academic and journalistic sycophants– taking place in Europe or North America these days. The hysterical, finger-pointing response of the conference’s main critics offers proof of the severity of the blacklisting, censorship and stifling of free expression in many of our home countries.
Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 1.41.16 PM
Dr. Porter was given the honour of formally introducing his important new book, Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare during the proudly-religious opening ceremonies replete with many state dignitaries. The decision was entirely appropriate to highlight the published outcome of Dr. Porter’s deep investigations into the cynical political manipulation of the imagery connected to Iran’s nuclear energy program. The larger international context within which the New Horizon conference took place found vivid reflections in some of the main themes of Dr. Porter’s work on what he has dubbed “the Iran Nuclear Scare.”
The book behind Dr. Porter’s Tehran presentation is very significant and timely. The text has already been translated into Farsi, Persia’s first language. The second New Horizon conference took place in Tehran just as the international negotiation on Iran’s relationship to nuclear power reached yet another threshold of controversy. The nuclear negotiations have paired Iranian officials with delegations from the five permanent members of the UN’s Security Council plus Germany.
As I came to see it, the New Horizon conference of 2014 taking place in the nation state and ancient civilization lying at the cross-roads of the world held out the possibility of a people-to-people quest for viable Middle Ground in the trading of ideas and perspectives. This quest of global citizens for middle ground stands in stark contrast to the unilateralism of the imposed commercial embargoes on the people and government of the Islamic Republic. As Dr. Porter makes clear in his extended reflections on one “manufactured crisis” set among a large set of similar manufactured crises, the main power behind the international animosity pointed at Iran clearly resides in Israel, the emerging imperial capital of a new round of colonial expansionism.
________________________________
“A who’s who of the world’s leading anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers,
9/11 conspiracy theorists and anti-American propagandists?”
The leadership of the Islamic Republic has been subject to an unrelenting barrage of accusations that the Iranian government is secretly conniving to extend its nuclear energy program into a program for the design and production of nuclear weapons. A detailed demonstration of the many-layered fraudulence permeating this portrayal forms the main substance of Dr. Porter’s  investigative reporting now brought to fruition in Manufactured Crisis.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-3.49.45-PM
Dr. Porter’s work on Manufactured Crisis seems to have become part of the very manufactured crisis he has identified. When I returned to Canada I learned from a BuzzFeed News article of Oct. 6 that Dr. Porter had aimed angry recriminations at the very conference organizers that had honoured him. In a missive that I intend to discuss in more detail in a future essay, Dr. Porter crudely condemned the conference’s focus on the relationship between the Jewish state of Israel and the events of 9/11. In doing so he implicitly criticized the conference organizers’ insistence on choosing delegates with the necessary expertise to highlight the systemic manipulation of Islam as epitomized by the US executive branch’s designation in 2002 of the Islamic Republic of Iran as the core polity in a diabolical “Axis of Evil.”
This manipulation Islamic people, theology and sectarian differences extends to the production and dissemination of negative images of Islam to maintain and advance the geopolitical dominance of power elites in “the West.” It extends to recruiting, arming, training, organizing and directing Muslim or ostensibly Muslim mercenary soldiers to commit violent acts exploited through media propaganda to justify invasions abroad and police star crackdowns at home, all in the name of anti-terrorism. It extends to setting up Islamic individuals as patsies to be blamed for trigger events that give false justification for predatory actions including aggressive warfare.
The preeminent and prototypical example of this type of action occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. On the infamous day of 9/11 an elaborate but highly-flawed operation put the Shock Doctrine into action. Within hours of the shocking images broadcast live from New York and Washington the serial catastrophes were diagnosed as the outcome of the actions of 19 Saudi citizens equipped with nothing more than box cutters, some rudimentary flight training, and ample amounts of jihadist zeal. There was more. The whole operation was said to be directed by Osama bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan.
In fact the attacks of the supposedly hijacked passenger planes on Wall Street and the Pentagon were so large in scale, so complex and high-tech in nature, that they could not have possibly been carried out without the extensive involvement and expertise of key elements of the world’s most powerful military-industrial complex and its attending national security state.
Dr. Porter’s harsh criticisms of the conference’s organizers and the majority of it participants have helped fuel, sustain and legitimize a significant firestorm of negative mainstream media coverage set off by press releases issued first by Abe Foxman’s Anti-Defamation League and then by Illinois Senator Mark Kirk.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-12-at-2.19.55-AM-640x407
In fairness it is important to note that Dr. Porter was himself singled out in these press releases. Senator Kirk specifically described Dr. Porter as a “Cambodian genocide denier” whereas Abe Foxman’s ADL advanced a more modest slur referring to the investigate reporter and scholar simply as an “anti-Israeli journalist.” In its second press release the ADL explained to the media, “Among the speak­ers on the first day of the con­fer­ence was anti-Israel jour­nal­ist Garth Porter. In his speech to the atten­dees, Porter lev­eled accu­sa­tions against Israel, the Mossad and CIA for man­u­fac­tur­ing the Iran­ian nuclear cri­sis. Brazil­ian jour­nal­ist Pepe Esco­bar echoed Porter’s mes­sage and pre­dicted that Iran will become more active in world affairs as its stature and influ­ence in the region increases.”[http://blog.adl.org/international/details-emerge-on-anti-semitic-gathering-in-tehran]
Senator Kirk brought together all the seemingly disparate ingredients of this strange narrative brew on October 2. The US politician reported, “the Second Annual ‘New Horizon’ conference in Tehran this week brought together former Iranian nuclear negotiators with a who’s who of the world’s leading anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers, 9/11 conspiracy theorists and anti-American propagandists.”
Extrapolating Senator Kirk’s words, neo-con columnist Jennifer Rubin argued in the Washington Post that “The so-called ‘New Horizon’ conference in Tehran proves why the current Iranian regime under President Hassan Rouhani is, at its core, no less extremist and dangerous than the regime under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.” In the election in 2013 of former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was defeated by now-President Hassan Rouhani. President Rouhani is widely perceived as a more moderate pragmatist than his outspoken and flamboyant presidential predecessor, a college professor and former mayor of Tehran.

One of the first acts on the international stage of the new Iranian president was to cancel a prior version of the conference that finally took place during the early autumn of 2014. The shift from Ahmadinejad to Rouhani, however, only tells part of the story because in the Islamic Republic the constitution places the overarching theocratic authority over the Muslim state in a divinely-sanctioned religious custodian of Iranian sovereignty.
The  Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic is now Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. Our group of independent thinkers learned during a tour of the Ebrat Museum, the circular building that housed the Shah of Iran’s state-of-the-art torture chamber, that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was among the group of clerics detained and tortured by SAVAK, the Shah’s of Iran’s notorious secret police. During the early days of his years of his reign the Shah turned his secret police primarily against known or suspected communists. Later, however, the US-backed puppet turned his formidable instruments of domestic repression primarily toward the several hundred followers of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, himself exiled in Paris until he returned to Tehran in 1979 to lead the triumphant Islamic revolution on the sacred ground of Persian civilization.
During our guided tour of one of the world’s most important museums of torture we learned that many of the Shah’s crimes against humanity were implemented by the the US-Israeli-Iranian “Beast of Ebram,” Parviz Sabeti, aka Peter Sabeti. After the tour one of our group, star investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, returned home to see what he could learn about Sabeti. Wayne’s alway’s penetrating research led him to discover that Parviz Sabeti, an international criminal of the first order, is currently living in Orlando Florida as a triple Iranian-Israeli-US citizen.

In Tehran Dr. Porter Discovered His Apparent Acceptance of the Official Cover Story of 9/11
Puts Him in a Small Minority
Screen-Shot-2014-10-13-at-1.06.19-AM
Nader Talebzadeh, Film Maker, TV Host and Chair of the New Horizon 2nd International Conference
The New Horizon conference’s primary champion, organizer, Chair and visionary is Nader Talebzadeh, an award-winning filmmaker and the popular host of a very important public affairs show on Iranian TV. Educated in part in New York at Columbia University’s School of Film Making, the fluently multilingual Nader Talebzadeh came to prominence as a chronicler of the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s. Among his many and varied cinematic achievements is “Messiah,”a feature film depicting the life of Jesus from an Islamic perspective. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEjrTCRABMI]
Screen-Shot-2014-10-13-at-1.03.14-AM
Last year Mr. Talebzadeh organized a more modest international conference in Tehran on “Hollywoodism.” The participants in this event focused primarily on the operations of the American film industry, site of a classic global exercise of US soft power. More subtle than the invasive actions of Armed Forces, the incursions of Hollywoodism can nevertheless sometimes invade minds, imaginations and systems of ethics and belief in insidious, assimilative and disempowering ways.
Dr. Porter outlined his criticism of the New Horizon conference in an article by Rosie Gray published on Oct. 6 in BuzzFeed News. The article’s subtitle is, “Gareth Porter says he never would have gone to a conspiracy conference in Tehran if he had known the real views of fellow attendees.” In his quoted comments Dr Porter indicates, “during a previous trip I was on [Nader Talebzadeh’s] show, and had no indication that he held extremist views on either conspiracy theories about 9/11 or Jews.”
Did I inadvertently play a role in Dr. Porter’s negative assessment of the conference attendees? Maybe. The subject of 9/11 came up during a return trip by car from our tour of the former US Embassy, now Tehran’s “Nest of Spies Museum.” In the driver’s seat was Hamed Gashgavi, one of the key point persons on the staff of the conference’s host organization. Also in the front seat was Rev. Stephen Sizer, a very important advocate of Palestinian rights in Great Britain. At the New Horizon conference Rev. Sizer, a Church of England Vicar, was the primary Christian ambassador to what could be seen through a lens of religious interpretation as an ecumenical event hosted by the Islamic Republic’s leadership. Rev. Sizer is also a well published expert on Christian Zionism.
In the back seat Thierry Meyssan, one of my favourite interpreters of global geopolitics, sat between Dr. Porter and myself. The exchange on 9/11 began with a discussion about the current ineffectiveness of the North American and European anti-war movements.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-10.25.14-AM
Dr. Porter contrasted the present situation with the successes of the anti-war protest movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s. During this period, when public pressure was mounted to end the US Armed Forces intervention in the former French colonies of Indochina, Christian churches helped give the peace movement the strength of conviction and organizational coherence.
I took Dr. Porter’s comment as an opening to advance a position that has been most fully developed by Prof. Graeme MacQueen, founder of the Peace Studies Department at McMaster University in Canada. I argued that one of the reasons for the current failures of the anti-war movement has to do with the aversion of its leadership to deal critically and honestly with the actual substance of what really happened and what didn’t happen on 9/11. In my estimation it is not good enough to restrict the anti-war movement’s public narrative to condemnation of the war mongering that has has occurred after 9/11.
I made it clear to Dr. Porter that in my view the foundation-funded peace movement has not dealt intelligently, forthrightly, or courageously with the actual content of the main event underlying the ongoing 9/11 wars. The most recent manifestation of the ongoing 9/11 wars is presently on full global display in the second US-led military attack on Iraq. This second attack is directed as well at continuing the offensive effort to overthrow the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad. I asked Dr. Porter how the leadership of the peace movement in North America and Europe can credibly oppose the perversity of a war or series of wars without addressing the underlying causes of the conflict. How can the anti-war movement be effective without getting to the bottom of the issue of who really did what to whom and for what reasons? Who are the real culprits when it comes to the lies and crimes of 9/11?
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-4.50.44-PM
Dr. Porter responded in a quite aggressive way, seemingly treating my observation as being more like a personal insult than a genuine attempt to diagnose a systemic problem. He answered me with a comment that I interpreted as a poor attempt to imitate the bombastic Alex Jones.  “You mean inside job,” Dr. Porter sneered as if the mere invocation of this simplistic slogan was sufficient justification to end the conversation.
Those of us at the conference who do not reject the label imposed upon us as “9/11 truthers” naturally experience this kind of put down frequently put on us in our home countries. But I was surprised to encounter this kind of dismissive and closed response from the featured independent thinker of the New Horizon delegates assembled in Tehran. It seemed to me Dr. Porter, a world authority on the dynamics of a very elaborate manufactured crisis imposed on the Islamic Republic, was implicitly expressing his faith in the veracity of the US government’s account of what happened on 9/11. What is Dr. Porter’s position on the events of 9/11, a hotly contested topic internationally and globally by any reasonable standard? At the New Horizon conference of 2014, Dr. Porter’s apparent trust in the findings of the 9/11 Commission, if that is indeed his stance, is a minority position.
The exchange in the car did not end there. I pointed out to my American colleague that he was sitting right beside the author of the first analytical book on 9/11, L’Effroyable imposture, or, in English, 9/11: The Big Lie. On this subject I suggested Gareth Porter might learn something from the the charming and incredibly erudite Thierry Meyssen. Currently domiciled in Damascus, Meysssen’s approach to research, analysis, publication and public discourse is entirely different from that of the American broadcaster, Alex Jones. I suspected the primary voice of Infowars symbolized Dr. Porter’s negative stereotype of a typical 9/11 truther. But this is merely assumption and speculation. I therefore invite Dr.Porter to explain his position on 9/11 in his own words.
________________________________
9/11 Skepticism, Jonathan Kay, Iran’s Nuclear Energy Program,
and the Likudnik Foundation for the Defense of Democracies 
When we returned to the hotel Thierry Meyssen, Kevin Barrett and I discussed the episode. My colleagues chalked up what had just taken place to the particular difficulties that arise when trying to discuss 9/11 Skepticism with many American public intellectuals.
Earlier in the formal proceedings of the conference Thierry Meyssen acknowledged that he was wrong in some aspects of his initial interpretation of what had happened on 9/11. Thierry had initially attributed the directing impetus of the 9/11 false flag trigger event to elements within the US government. Like many truthers, myself included, I believe Meyssen has come to embrace a growing consensus that elements in the government of Likudnik Israel together with the Bushite cabal of neocon operatives, many of whom are dual US-Israeli citizens, most probably gave the directing hand to “the New Pearl Harbor” that happened on 9/11.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-5.08.58-PM
Unlike Thierry Meyssen it took me many years to begin to question the official cover story first delivered without any formal investigation at all on the very morning of 9/11. I gave my first public presentation on 9/11 skepticism in the autumn of 2008 on a public platform I shared with Dr. Kevin Barrett in Edmonton Alberta. After going public with my 9/11 skepticism I began to notice that the most concerted push back invariably came from people, groups or media organizations with strong ties to Israel.
Many of the smear attacks directed my way and at my then-graduate student, Joshua Blakeney, emanated from Jonathan Kay, an editor of Canada’s National Post. This newspaper was founded by Conrad Black, former owner of a media chain that included the Jersalem Post. It was Conrad Black that hired Jonathan Kay as a journalist after the young man’s graduation from Yale University’s Law School and his failed career as a metallurgist. As I see it, the political personae of Canada’s current Christian Zionist Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, was largely invented in the National Post much like the political personae of Christian Zionist Tony Blair was largely invented in the British media operations of Rupert Murdoch.
Jonathan Kay was given backing by the Tel Aviv-based Foundation for the Defense of Democracies to write a book devoted to smearing 9/11 truthers as part of a larger group of “underground conspiracists” deemed by the author to be suffering grave symptoms of a shared mental illness. Many of the senior fellows of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies had formerly been members of the Project for the New American Century, the think tank that promoted many of the initiatives that were immediately implemented after 9/11.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-5.25.26-PM
The old Cold War media strategy of guilt-by-association is made very clear in the title of Kay’s book. The title of the original Canadian edition is Among the Truthers: A Journey into the Growing Conspiracist Underground of 9/11 Truthers, Birthers, Armageddonites, Vaccine Hysterics, Hollywood Know-Nothings and Internet Addicts. In his introduction Kay explained that his book would not address the actual evidence of what did or did not happen on 9/11. He claims that his editor had indicated such an exercise would be too boring for a large readership.
Jonathan Kay has frequently tried to smear in the National Post my efforts and those of Joshua Blakeney to expand the frontiers of 9/11 truth. Kay’s smear and disinformation seemed somehow related to an episode in Winnipeg Manitoba. Winnipeg is home to a fairly large and old Canadian  Jewish community that includes the proudly Zionist Asper clan whose patriarch, the late Izzy Asper, acquired the National Post plus a chain of other Canadian media outlets from Conrad Black before the disgraced media mogul was sentenced to serve time in a US prison.
In March of 2009 I gave an invited lecture at the University of Winnipeg. Entitled, “Should George W. Bush Be Arrested in Calgary Alberta and Charged with International Crimes?,” the text of the presentation was published on a number of sites including Thierry Meyssen’s Voltairenet. After the presentation I was surrounded and entrapped by a group of prominent Winnipeg women, all of them Jewish, and presented with the printout of a stylized swastika that had published on a web page called Montreal 9/11 Truth. The Montreal 9/11 Truth group had published some of my article. The image I was shown was made actually to declared the anti-fascist position of the 9/11 truthers in Montreal. The facts of the matter, however, were clearly irrelevant to my inquisitors. An account of the episode appeared in the local Jewish community newspaper implying of course that I have Nazi sympathies, which I definitely do not.
The common denominator linking Jonathan Kay with the actions of the group that entrapped and accosted me at the University of Winnipeg is their shared attachments as Zionists to what they perceive as the best interests of Israel.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-5.18.47-PM

My research into the sponsor of Jonathan Kay’s book, Among the Truthers, led me to a paragraph that caught my attention in Dr. Porter’s Manufactured Crisis. The author attributes much of the planning and design of the so-called “sanctions” imposed on the Islamic Republic largely to the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. On page 289 of Manufactured Crisis Dr. Porter writes,

[In 2011] the Obama administration was initially uncertain about whether to support the the Israeli proposal to target Iran’s Central Bank and Iran’s oil exports, but the Israeli lobby in the United States forced the issue. The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a Washington, DC-based organization whose policy positions are closely aligned with the Likud Party, had drafted legislation mandating such sanctions, and AIPAC was already mobilizing Congress to pass it.

Then, on December 2, the Senate passed legislation mandating sanctions against Iran’s Central Bank and the export sector by a vote of 94 to 0. The administration knew that Israel was committed to seeing how those sanctions would play out in Iranian policy.

Questions about the possible role of Israel in the false flag trigger event of 9/11 are probably the greatest source of division within the 9/11 truth movement. One aspect of that division concerns whether calling for a credible investigation is a sufficient response to the Big Lie of 9/11 or whether it is necessary and wise to go the extra step and offer whodunnit scenarios.
The opposition to those 9/11 skeptics who see the dual citizen Israeli-US neocons as primary suspects tend to be associated with the web site, 9/11 Blogger. They tend to gravitate around the work of Kevin Ryan who lost his career in the insurance business when he insisted on defending the organization that had certified the high grade steel forming the structural core of the Twin Towers. Doug Brinkman, who created the forum at the Edmonton public library where I shared a public podium with Kevin Barrett in 2008, has been incessant in chastising those of us who connect 9/11 to Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu has indicated 9/11 was good for Israel. Who benefited? Who had the motive? Who had the means”

An Axis of Enlightenment Find Expression in the Agenda of the New Horizon Conference

In a published letter to BuzzFeed’s reporter, Rosie Gray, Dr. Porter put on the record that “I did not participate in most of the conference sessions,” sessions that in his eyes included “a bewildering assorting of people and issues.” Perhaps if Dr. Porter had been more present at the conference proceedings even in sessions where he was not a featured presenter the American investigative reporter might have noticed a close bond of collegial and intellectual interaction between Mr. Talebzadeh and Dr. Kevin Barrett.

A devout Muslim himself, Dr. Barrett is also an accomplished Islamic scholar who is a native son of Wisconsin. Dr. Barrett’s academic career at the University of Wisconsin was cut short in 2006 after he started to draw attention in his teaching and subsequent public interventions to the vast distance between the empirically verifiable evidence concerning the events of 9/11 and the public fables and anti-Islam religious mythology deployed in the mass media to explain the debacle to the American public.
Screen-Shot-2014-10-14-at-5.54.49-PM
In my view Dr. Barrett is one of America’s leading analysts of the ongoing psychological operation flowing from the initial media misrepresentation of 9/11. Indeed, through constant study, including the knowledge he has gained from his amazing collection of interviews with almost everyone who has something intelligent to say about 9/11 and its consequences, Dr. Barrett has made himself a world authority on the never-ending 9/11 wars. Like all wars, the 9/11 wars include intense psychological operations including those connected to the new ISIL war of imperial conquest on the moving eastern frontiers of the expanding Jewish settler state of Israel.
Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 1.52.23 PM
For the war machine to operate with the manufactured consent of the citizens that finance it and serve it, including with the blood of our young people, the top strategists must bring about the demonization and dehumanization especially Arab and Persian peoples as well as the worldwide community of Muslims.
This psychological task requires the media division of the military-industrial complex to concoct an alternative universe of altered public perception far removed from realities. Thankfully these hidden realities, kept veiled in North America and Europe behind the so-called fog of war, were given a healthy and genuine airing in Tehran.
The Hollywoodized media’s unrelenting quest these days to instigate, exploit and deploy Islamophobia replicates many of the same motifs of media manipulation developed by Edward Bernays and others to marshal US public opinion as a friend of globalized corporate capitalism and as a foe of indigenous self-determination in the course of the Cold War. In the shock doctrine governing the ongoing and now re-branded Global War on Terror, the tactics for stimulating Islamophobia have been made to replace the memes of anti-communism in the Cold War.
As I see it, this approach to the necessary study of the 9/11 wars forms the common ground on which Nader Talebzadeh and Kevin Barrett seem to have developed a strong basis of friendship, expert analysis, and collegial collaboration. No doubt many good people have had a hand in shaping the agenda of the New Horizon conference whose main subject matter so shocked the sensibilities of Dr. Porter. With that acknowledgement I believe that an Axis of Enlightenment coalesced in Tehran which showed up in the overall structure of the event.
The placement of 9/11 Skepticism in the foreground was in my view a reflection of the obvious bonds of respect and shared understanding between Kevin Barrett and Nader Talebzadeh, both formidable Islam scholars and devotees in their own right. This Axis of Enlightenment also drew brilliance from the collaboration between Kevin with Arash Darya-Bandari, Secretary of Content Policy of the New Horizon conference and Chair of the panel on Israel and 9/11. I am proud to have been invited to make a brief presentation in that historic session.
The host of a regular Internet radio show with a modest but extremely dedicated following, Dr. Barrett can easily be dismissed in the United States as marginal and an insignificant figure. He has already been deemed crazy by the xenophobes and Islamophobes at Fox News even as he has been easily ignored by the likes of Dr. Porter, Chris Hedges, Matt Taibbi or Prof. Noam Chomsky.

In Tehran, however, it was a different story. Seemingly falling back on his prejudices attached to the slogan, “Inside Job,” it was Gareth Porter who found himself marginalized and isolated at the conference. On the other hand Kevin Barrett who tended to speak for the majority on 9/11 as our truthjihad contributed significantly to the success of the New Horizon proceedings in Tehran.

Canada making war again: “proud”, “noble …and necessary”? Letter from Joe Hueglin of the Daily Digest

 HarperPsycho

To: Letter to the Editor phoenix.rising@bellnet.ca
From: Joe Hueglin phoenix.rising@bellnet.ca
Subject: Canada making war again: “proud”, “noble …and necessary”?

Dear Editor,

Canadians told to be “proud”, paid $850,000 to celebrate our share in reducing Libya, which pre-bombing by NATO had ” the highest living standard in Africa.” and which as a result is a failed state, unable to form a lasting government and experiencing constant internal warfare.

The secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security stated in Ottawa “we continue to face real terrorist enemies and real terrorist threats.” from ““a stateless group of depraved criminals ­rapists, kidnappers, killers and terrorists who control a territory,” he said. “There is no religion, including Islam and there is no God, including Allah, that would condone ISIL’s violent tactics.”

Prime Minister Harper is telling us now it is both “noble …and necessary” that our aircraft , purchased for defence, be committed to war against these “terrorists” in the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS) some of whom were our allies in Libya.

Canada’s involvement in yet another foreign war is no more necessary to our country’s defence that was bombing Serbia, Iraq and Libya. Nor a “noble” action of which to be “proud” and celebrate, any more than that which devastated Libya.

Yours truly,

Joe Hueglin

Seeking the Balance by Betty Krawczyk

BK-Seeking BalanceHdr 800

Screen Shot 2014-08-29 at 11.32.43 PM

Betty K Photo

Oh, geez. I just got to the article written by Steve Burgess for the Tyee on women politicians ( 8/11/14). In “Women Leaders Behaving Badly” Steve Burgess flies high, soaring way, way above the scorn he heaps on certain right wing women politicians in Canada. Burgess is terribly disappointed with these politicians (Cindy Clark, Allison Redford) for not bringing a higher standard of behaviour to political office. My goodness, he says in effect, if women are supposed to be more moral than men, what happened to these two? And won’t all female politicians, when and if more get into public office, act in a like manner? That is, no different from men?

My answer to Burgess is probably not. That is, women cannot act very differently from the men who have allowed them to come forward in any political party, and for a very simple reason. For a female politician to rise to the top in a corporate driven capitalist world like ours, she to a large extent, must begin to think like a male politician. That is, the emphasis must be on winning at all costs. To do this there must be obfuscation of the facts, out- right lying, and always looking for campaign funds.

Money, money, money. Power and influence. That’s where it’s at for female politicians as well as male politicians under our present system. Women and men alike must adhere to these rules of conduct. “If you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen,” as Harry S. Truman (33rd president of the US) was fond of saying.

So women who enter the political arena in the western world must forget all about the stuff that was wired into the formation of our brains in utero. Stuff like wanting to see that all children in a community are cared for, not just a few chosen ones, or a certain class of children whose parents can afford private schools and enriched experiences. Stuff like caring for the elderly and handicapped. Making the environment a priority. Acting on female inherited knowledge that the community, the commons, is crucial for a good civilization and that the scramble for individual wealth and individual advancement at the expense of the commons will eventually make for a lethal outcome. Even an Armageddon, such as fundamentalist Christians like our Prime Minister long for. Still, globally, ordinary women keep the world spinning by their tireless efforts to try to protect loved ones and vulnerable others. Women try to protect the defenseless whether it is in Africa; South America, Europe, Asia or North America, women seek to hide children from pitiless wars, the drug trade, domestic violence, and sexual exploitation for men’s pleasure.

In my opinion, with few exceptions, because our political and financial system is so at odds with most women’s basic sensibilities that the women who do make it to the top in our present system are, it seems to me, parade in a kind of drag. Even Elizabeth May, a woman politician I esteem, bowed under the pressure of the Jewish lobby concerning the ongoing struggle in Gaza. How?

By endorsing the “engaged neutrality” concept as the Green Party position toward the slaughter of civilians in Gaza by Israel. But how can one (or a party) be neutral if one is truly cognizant of the slaughter of innocents? Does Elizabeth May even know about the seven year blockade and siege of Gaza by Israel? The slow seven year strangulation death of the people there? If she does, does she consider it a neutral thing? I don’t know. But at least Paul Epstein, Green Party President, had the grace to resign after his burst of blogged hatred for the Palestinians. But I do know the Jewish lobby is as powerful in Canada as it is in the US. And wealthy. Must be, because most North American politicians cravenly stand in line to suck up. Our Prime Minister can’t bend over backward far enough to please the Jewish lobby. In his last trip to fawn at Israel’s feel and declare that Canada is solidly behind their slaughter of Palestinians he became so bent out of shape from the kneeling even before the trip he had to take 21 Jewish rabbis with him to help him stand up. And holding up the rear guard in case of need where 10 fundamentalist Evangelical preachers.

Stephen Harper’s slavishness to Israel no matter what they do is a religious thing. In his fundamentalist Evangelical religion with its literal interpretation of the Bible, the Biblical prophecy says that Israel must be in wars with its neighbours before the Armageddon and the Rapture can happen, that is, the return of Jesus descending from the sky. Hot wars, not cold wars. Our Prime Minister is all for keeping the war against the people of Gaza hot no matter what he says about hoping for peace there. Look at his voting record in the UN.

While Women have been intellectually stunted in the last five thousand years under patriarchy and male religions, our brains still work much the same, just as men’s do. Women as a rule are not attracted to physical violence. We don’t have the same kind of blood lust that men can get into. We like to negotiate. We know that when people, or a nation of people, are humiliated they will try to get even. We know that things run better when people feel good about themselves and others. The individualistic one up- man- ship that men like to practice is tearing the world apart. Without the checks and balances of the female brain life has become hell in capitalist corporate worlds for most people, even the winners. What we really need is a women’s revolution. One that will overthrow the absolute domination of the one sided male brain we are all living under and seek a balance of both male and female brains.

I believe that all people everywhere, whether they realize it or not, are searching for this balance. And I believe this time will come when the balance seekers will prevail because without this balance the human race with not survive. And when this balance does come, misogynist males like Steve Burgess will just have to adjust or shut up.

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.

CIJABomb copy 2

 

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.

Zion’s New Crusaders: Ezra Levant – Muslim Hunting Jew – Rallies Canada’s Zionist Christians in Support of Israel by Arthur Topham

Zion’s New Crusaders: Ezra Levant – Muslim Hunting Jew – Rallies Canada’s Zionist Christians in Support of Israel

by Arthur Topham

July 27th, 2014

It was just a matter of time before Canada’s Zionist media mouthpiece Ezra Levant reacted to Israel’s rain of hell-fire and brimstone that’s been falling on defenceless Palestinians in Gaza since July 13.

The Jew-controlled media around the world and here at home have been working their butt off ever since the Israeli government decided that it was time for another blood sacrifice to their satanic god, Moloch the Death Eater, doing their utmost to muster support for the murdering, blood-thirsty Zionists while the Internet explodes with outrage, disdain and negative reaction to their demonic deeds.

I’m sure the Zionists across the nation were shocked to see the number of Canadians who, finally fed up with the insanity of the Zionist Jews, took to the streets in great numbers to protest what will likely go down in history as a benchmark event in terms of that point in time where the awareness of what’s truly happening in Palestine is finally sinking  in for the majority of decent people across the nation.

Recent events in Calgary, Alberta where a large anti-Israel protest occurred and some rabid pro-Israel Zionist Jews got a thumping for starting trouble, has triggered what Levant is calling his “Calgary for Israel Rally” which is slated to take place in front of Calgary City Hall on Thursday, July 31st at 6 p.m.

Israhell Rally

Rally Map in Calgary, AB

Levant has a website erroneously called “Fighting for Freedom with Ezra Levant” where he sends out email to his subscribers. In his latest rally cry for support for poor, beleaguered Israel he writes:

“I live in Toronto now, but as a lifelong Calgarian I was appalled to see a riot by anti-Israel extremists that happened on the steps of City Hall. Worse still, the police did nothing — they weren’t even there. And half a dozen Calgarians were sent to hospital by this Hamas-style violence.

I’m fighting back — peacefully. On Thursday, July 31st at 6:00 p.m., I’m hosting my own rally. It’s partly in support of Israel. But it’s partly for Calgarians to strongly reject this imported Hamas-style violence.

This is Canada — not Gaza.

If you’re in the Calgary area on Thursday, please join us! All of the details are available at CalgaryForIsrael.ca.

Ezra Levant

P.S. Please spread the word about the CalgaryForIsrael.ca Rally on Twitter and Facebook. This event is in Calgary, but let’s make a national impact — we want peace in our Canadian streets, not riots and violence.”

Now how’s that for chutzpah? Ezra the Muslim Hunter who’s been spreading ongoing hatred toward the Arab people via the Sun News Network and elsewhere for decades is now going to rally all the Christian Zionists that he and his rag tag band of Irgun-inspired criminals have been duping and milking for donations for decades and show Canada and the world just how much our nation STANDS FOR ISRAEL!

Heaven forbid that such an outcome would occur but given the fact that Canada’s Christians have been dumbed down for so long by the Jew-controlled news media; so much so that Christians, whose very Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ, was murdered by this same gang of Talmudic Rabbinical tyrants two thousand years ago and they still haven’t figure out who the devil to trust, it will be of great interest to see to what degree their decades and centuries of mind-control propaganda will have on them and whether they’ll turn traitors like Harper and the Conservative government and pledge their allegiance to this foreign, apartheid and racist warmongering state of Israel rather than to their own country of birth and residence.

Ezra Levant is a traitor to Canada along with the Jew-controlled news media that daily uses its unwarranted power and influence to turn average Canadians into rabid Zionists and haters of the Arab people of the world. I see it happening all the time and witness otherwise decent, peace-loving Canadians suddenly go brain-dead when the subject of the Jews and the Arabs come up, all because of the daily brainwashing that they’ve received throughout their lives.

Levant facetiously states in his forked-tongue way: This is Canada — not Gaza” knowing damn well that THE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW GAZA not just Palestine and all because the Zionist Jews have been allowed to build uptheir Big Brother media network of deception and lies into a monopoly and use it to twist the minds of good, honest people who were raised up to believe that their media was independent and free and that it would give them historical truth and not fill their heads with prejudicial lies and and their hearts with hatred.

ZIONISMORWELL

Canadians and freedom-loving, peace-loving people around the world are horrified at what Israel has done to the people and the infrastructure of Gaza and they have not only a right but a duty to be outraged and to express their outrage in the most appropriate manner possible.

Given this fact I hope that as many anti-Zionist, anti-Israel people as possible will gather in Calgary on July 31st and counter this move on the part of the traitorous Jewish lobbyists and their media maniacs like Ezra Levant to shift Canadians away from true Christian values and decent morals and ethics that have served as our guiding principles for centuries, long before our governments were infiltrated by the Jewish lobbyists like B’nai Brith Canada, the former Canadian Jewish Congress and the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy who have always been pro-Zionist and Israel Firsters.

It’s time for Canadians to rise up and unite in defence of freedom and democracy and in defence of the Palestinians who are being genocided right before out eyes while the likes of Zionist Jew Ezra Levant and his Zionist media monopoly lie and deceive us with their deadly deceptive propaganda and hate.

Interview with Ken O’Keefe

Press TV has conducted an interview with Ken O’Keefe, former US marine from London, about the significance of International Quds Day as Israel continues the war on Palestinians in Gaza.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 2.09.31 PM

Press TV: Mr. O’Keefe, my first question goes to you. We’ve seen the International Quds Day protests grow each year and this year there is the expectation that the protests will be even bigger, and more charged due to the Israeli war on Gaza.

What is it about Palestine that unites Muslims of all denominations, and people of all faiths in your opinion?

O’Keefe: Well really Palestine hits at the heart of all injustice. Every people who have experienced injustice have to understand deep down in their heart that the Palestinians have been for many decades now persecuted to the point that they are treated as sub humans, that they have been bombed with white phosphorous.

We see entire families being wiped out and one fells swoop from rockets that are sent into the Samouni family, homes and now we have a whole host of new families who are being destroyed and all of this is based on a Jewish supremacist Zionist ideology that effectively really makes the Palestinians nothing but dogs, less than dogs.

So every person on this planet who has ever felt the sting of injustice can relay on an intimate level with the Palestinian people and ultimately this is why the Palestinian cause is everybody’s cause.

Press TV: Mr. O’Keefe, an exploited population or an oppressed population?

O’Keefe: The psychology behind the kind of comments that a seemingly intelligent person like this gentleman in Washington D.C. makes is an indictment of humanity for having lost all of its humanity quite frankly that people can get up and pretend as if the victim is in fact the criminal and that the true criminal is indeed a victim is really beyond the pale.

We have reached the point now where these puppets who get up and state such upside down nonsense really will have no place in a sane society that humanity must create in order for us to avert a Third World War and ultimately a potential nuclear annihilation.

The facts are the facts and the fact is that the Palestinian people have been treated as sub humans since before 1948 and the formation of the so-called Jewish … [entity] of Israel. The Jewish … [entity] of Israel was formed on the back of wiping hundreds of Palestinian villages off the map. The people of Palestine including family members in my own family were thrown out of that country or of course they could have stayed and died if they chose to do that.

The fact is that everything stems from the original crime and the Palestinians have every right to resist whether it be with homemade rockets which are unguided basically glorified fireworks or by any other means necessary. Every single human being on this planet has the right to defend themselves and we also know at this point that Netanyahu, Shin Bet and the Israeli leadership pretended as if they did not know that these three Israeli boys were dead already just so that they could whip up the kind of hysteria to support the madness and the bloodletting which continues again.

It is Gaza 2008-2009 Cast Lead 2.0 and this is what the Israelis do. Come up with excuses to exterminate and kill Palestinians and really what we need to do in the West is take stock in the fact that our treasonous governments are kowtowing to Israel, providing them weapons which are being used to murder Palestinians everyday so we in the West are responsible for the murder that is happening in Gaza right now.

American citizens and British citizens in particular are guilty of mass murder for their complicity and their taxpaying endeavors which result in the murdering of Palestinians.

Press TV: Mr. O’Keefe, I’d like you to respond to this and bearing in mind that Mr. Peterson [the other guest of the program] used the word “provocation” coming from Hamas and that is what has caused Israel to react the way it is.

But let’s not forget whenever you Google Israel you get “evictions”, “mass evictions of Palestinians”, “illegal settlement constructions”, “settler violence against Palestinians”, “construction of an illegal separation wall”, “the suppression of the peaceful protests in Nil’in and Bil’in.

O’Keefe: Of all the things I said he brought up one point. He ignored the fact that Israel was founded on the back of wiping hundreds of Palestinian villages off the map, that ethnic cleansing took place there. He has ignored the fact that the Palestinians have been treated as sub humans for many decades now. He has ignored the fact that basically he is giving the same rights of self defense to the aggressor.

The aggressor when he invades and steals a nation does not have the right of self defense. Those that are being violated, those whose land is being stolen, those whose families were being murdered, they have the right of self defense.

It is not self defense when you have the fourth largest military in the world with high tech weaponry of the highest order, when you have a military that has total air superiority. There is no air defense, there is no air force, there is no navy, there is no army to speak of that is not self defense.

And how many rockets have killed people in Israel? It is hardly more than a handful and ultimately this is the only thing they have to fight back with. If they did have weapons to fight back with I can tell you the cowardly Israeli nation would never stand a chance in the face of an equally armed Palestinian resistance because they would destroy Israel in a heartbeat if there was a fair fight but there is no fair fight.

It is like shooting fish in a barrel basically and you talk about entire families that have been wiped out. The Samouni family lost 29 members in one go. Another family lost 25 members in one go. You are talking of a child as young as nine months, three pregnant women in one home so that Israel could target one individual.

It is a disgusting criminal … [entity] Israel. It is involved in organ trafficking, blood diamonds, sex slavery, weapons trading, passing on nuclear secrets, you name it. It is the ultimate criminal … [entity] and it is treating the Palestinians for many decades now as less than dogs.

These are the facts and nothing will change these facts no matter how many prostitutes get on the television and spout their talking points handed directly to them from the UK, US governments and other mainstream media which are nothing more than warmongers pretending to be truth tellers.

Press TV: Let’s just look ahead then and bring up the question that everybody is asking right now. Mr. O’Keefe, I put this to you first.

Now there are many including those in the Palestinian leadership and the Israeli leadership who say that Israel has killed off any chances of a so-called two state solution. What are the options left to us now? The Leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran has said that bring back the Palestinians in Diaspora and hold a referendum, see what they want.

O’Keefe: Well I am really happy that you brought this up because we cannot ignore the connection to the unity government that was being formed and ultimately the bringing together of the different factions within Palestine.

Within one month of that happening we have this concocted fabricated fraud that was perpetrated by Netanyahu, Shin Bet and the Israeli media. Ultimately they were fully aware of the likelihood of those three young Israeli boys being dead and they fostered this idea of bring the boys home in order to whip up this sympathy on an international scope not just domestically.

All of this was in line with MOSSAD’s motto which is “By way of deception, thou shalt do war”. It is almost so blatantly obvious that when we look at gentlemen like the gentleman in Washington D.C. or other such mouthpieces who pretend as if this is somehow a sort of battle between two different factions and an equal one with equal crimes committed on both sides, what we really see is that humanity once again has lost its humanity and that we as citizens in Western nations are guilty.

We are criminally guilty for complicit activity involving the destruction of Palestine, be it our taxes being used to give Israel to the tune of over 3 billion dollars a year never mind the weapons that are given to them as well.

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.

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.
