The Canadian Left Backs Upcoming Gaza Flotilla


Pages: 1 2

It was just over a year ago that Israeli commandos went aboard seven ships that had set sail from Turkey, intent on challenging Israel’s arms embargo on Hamas-controlled Gaza. Six of those ships were seized with little trouble. But on the seventh, the Mavi Marmara, the passengers attacked the Israeli boarders with improvised weapons. The Israelis were not prepared for the violence and were forced to use lethal force against the passengers. Nine civilians died and many more were wounded. For the crime of defending themselves against the passengers’ vicious attack, activists, politicians and opinion-makers all over the globe condemned the Israelis’ actions and the legitimacy of the entire embargo.

Since then, anti-Israeli would-be martyrs been plotting how to recreate the triumph of the original flotilla. One such group is preparing to send a Canadian-owned ship, loaded with Canadian volunteers, to Gaza, with the express purpose of forcing the Israelis to respond. Rather than reflecting the strange views of a fringe minority of a rabble-rousers, however, the plan — known unimaginatively as the Canadian Boat to Gaza — has attracted some high level political support, including at least two politicians of the left-wing New Democratic Party, Canada’s newly minted parliamentary opposition.

In the federal election just held in Canada on May 2nd, the New Democrats (NDP) benefited mightily from the collapse of two other Canadian federal political parties, the Liberals and the Quebec-based Bloc Quebecois. Millions of voters shifted their votes to Canada’s right-wing Conservative Party, which won a strong majority in parliament, and the NDP, which finished a distant second and formed the Official Opposition. So dramatic and unexpected was this sudden shift in voter support that many of the NDP candidates had never seriously considered the possibility that they would actually win their races. Such people, who put their name on the ballot to buff up their resume or as a favor to a friend inside the party, now wield considerable moral authority (if limited political influence) as members of Canada’s federal government.

This is worrisome because the NDP has never before held such clout. Thanks to the electoral collapse of its rivals on Canada’s left-wing, it almost tripled the size of its parliamentary delegation. By necessity, it has absorbed many political rookies who were only given a cursory vetting, if party officials scrutinized their pasts at all.

Barely a month after the election, the anti-Israel fringe of the NDP (a party with deep ties to organized labor and self-styled “progressives”) is emerging in full force. Surprisingly, it has come not from an unvetted rookie, but from a relative veteran of the party. Alex Atamenenko, who has represented a largely rural area of the province of British Columbia since 2006, has publicly endorsed the objective of the Canadian Boat to Gaza, and is listed on their website along with the usual collection of labor leaders and journalists. Nor is this the first time that Mr. Atamenenko has taken a stand against the Jewish State. He was sharply critical of Israel’s justified response to the original flotilla and of Israel’s defensive war against Hamas during Operation Cast Lead in 2008-09.

Mr. Atamenenko has a right to his views and to endorse whatever causes that he sees fit. But what is worrisome is the muted response of his political superiors within the NDP. Last year, while still the third-place party in Canadian politics, the party reacted swiftly and strongly when one of its elected members was caught on videotape seeming to question the legitimacy of Israel’s right to exist. Jack Layton, leader of the NDP, quickly met with Israel’s ambassador to Canada and assured her that such comments did not represent the party’s position and was publicly critical of the woman who had made them (no doubt under pressure, she backed away from her marks quickly).

    Interesting article in June 10 edition of Israel's Haaretz news stating that Israel is pulling out all stops to influence other countries to support them over Palestine. If any other country did this there would be an outrage. I wonder how much Israel's push is contributing to the high number of Pro-Israel political rhetoric and stories lately in US and Canadian press.

      I do enjoy seeing Israel squirm and expend so much effort in attempts to justify the unconscionable.I am disappointed at the successes.Obviously the Israeli's and the Diaspora are not evil,they are all too human.And present Canadian policy (pro Israel) is not unpopular to many.There are many reasons,not all rational or just or even handed.We just have to have hope for a world that will continue to challenge the injustices many endure today.The Jews are a very capable and righteous people who have lifetimes of abuse at our hands.God Bless Them.When they have found the security they need they will recognize the just needs of others,including their cousins and fellow Palestinians.muchiboy

    We are ALL Arabs, Except the Jews

    (“I convey to you the Messages of my Lord and give sincere advice to you. And I know from Allah what you know not.”)

    Allah reveals in the following Verse of the Qur’an the entire earth’s population are descendants of Adam, with the exception of the Jews, as they are the Children of Iblis aka Israel.

    (O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam), and from him (Adam) He created his wife [Hawwa] (Eve)], and from them both He created many men and women; and fear Allah through Whom you demand (your mutual rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you.)

    It is revealed in the following Hadith, that Adam spoke Arabic, which means Adam was an Arab, and ALL the Children of Adam are of Arab descent. And this is the reason Allah sent the Children of Adam an Arab Prophet aka Prophet Muhammad [phuh].

    Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet said, “Allah created Adam in His Image, sixty cubits (about 30 metres) in height. When He created him, He said (to him), “Go and greet that group of angels sitting there, and listen what they will say in reply to you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your offspring.” Adam (went and) said, “As-Salamu Alaikum [peace be upon you].” They replied, “As-Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah {Peace and Allah’s mercy be on you).” So they increased Wa Rahmatullah.” The Prophet added, “So, whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and picture of Adam. Since then the creation of Adam’s {offspring} {i.e. stature of human beings} is being diminished up to the present time.

    The dirty-white race is the race furthest removed from the racial purity of our Arab father Adam, and by default, this makes the dirty-white race the morally and melanin depleted garbage race and not the master race, only master fools. Allah will dispose of the dirty-white garbage race in the manner in which Allah Disposes of the garbage that He has created. Allah Will burn the dirty-white garbage race in the bowels of the Hell-fire for worshipping a murdered Jew as god, along with their evil Jew masters. Allah reveals the Jew’s father in the following Verse of the Qur’an:

    (I (Allah) made them (Iblis and his offspring) not to witness (nor took their help in) the creation of the heavens and the earth and not (even) their own creation, nor was I (Allah) to take the misleaders as helpers.)

    ([This is the] Revelation sent down from the Lord of the Alamin [mankind, jinn and all that exists].)

    ([He is Allah] Owner of High Ranks and Degrees, the Owner of the Throne. He sends the revelation by His Command to any of His slaves He wills, that he (the person who receives revelation) may warn (men) of the Day of Mutual Meeting [i.e. the Day of Resurrection].

    (And to warn those [Jews, Christians, and pagans] who say, “Allah has begotten a son [or offspring or children].”)

    (No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths [i.e. He begot sons and daughters]. They utter nothing but a lie.)

    (Your Ilah [God] is One Ilah [God-Allah, none has the right to be worshipped but He])

    (“And indeed, We created man from dried [sounding] clay of altered mud. And the jinn, We created aforetime from the smokeless flame of fire.”).

    (And I have created the jinn and men only to worship Me).

    (And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.”)

      I have never heard such trash in my entire life. when Mohamed was alive he worked for a Rabbi and always listened to the Rabbis reading of the Torah and that is how he learned all about God and Moses, is it not amazing that Moses when up the mountain and was there for 40 days and night, what a coincidence that Mohamed did exactly the same, the similarities are boundless, moslems are so cursed, just look how they blowing each other up, when was the last time a Jewish civil war took place? perhaps if you studied more and realise that God does not need the stupid muslims to kill the infidels, he can do it himsel.
      Any Muslim that thinks killing infidels on mass is getting 72 virgings as a reward, if this is the case I think all muslims should commit suicide as there are too many virgins in heaven.

    The Lost Tribes of Satan aka Israel

    The mystery of two of the ten Lost Tribes of Satan aka Israel has been solved. Allah reveals in the following Verse of the Qur’an that one tribe He Transformed into monkeys and they exist in the animal kingdom and zoos and the other tribe, Allah Transformed into swine; a major food source for the jew’s christian slaves.

    (Say [O Muhammad to the people of the Scripture): “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah? Those [Jews] who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, and those of whom [some] He transformed into monkeys and swines, and those who worshipped Taghut [false deities]; such are worse in rank [on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell-fire], and far more astray from the Right Path [in the life of this world]”.)

    Muslims obey Allah and will not eat a “cursed” jew {swine}, as we know the flesh of the swine is permeated with parasitic jew worms that control the minds of the jew’s christian slaves. Also, the pig has human qualities, as pig skin is used in pig-to-human skin graft transplants for burn victims. Allah identifies the jew’s to be the JINN in the following Verses of the Qur’an and He identifies the christian’s partially-eaten, jew corpse god to be a JINN slave Messenger, sent to the Children of Israel and NOT the Children of Adam {non-jews}.

    (And they have invented a kinship between Him and the jinn, but the jinn know well that they have indeed to appear [before Him] [i.e. they will be called to account].)

    (He [Isa-Jesus] was not more than a slave. We granted Our Favour to him, and We made him an example for the Children of Israel [i.e. his creation without a father].)

    (Verily, those whom you call upon besides Allah are slaves like you. So call upon them and let them answer you if you are truthful.)

    The jew’s forged the Torah and the New Testament to hide their Satanic origins and to identify Satan as a serpent, however, Allah reveals Satan aka Israel to be a JINN in the following Verses of the Quran:

    (“And [remember] when We said to the angels: “Prostrate yourselves unto Adam.” So they prostrated themselves except Satan. He was one of the jinn; he disobeyed the Command of his Lord. Will you then take him [Iblees] and his offspring as protectors and helpers rather than Me while they are enemies to you? What an evil is the exchange for the Zaalimoon [polytheists, and wrongdoers, etc.].)

    (And the jinn: He created from a smokeless flame of fire.)

    The Torah and New Testament are forgeries, as they make gods of the jew’s, while making virtual slaves of the Children of Adam {non-jews}. It is time christian’s recognize the New Testament for what it is: an instruction manual; “How to Serve and Worship Your Hostile Jinn aka Jew Masters for Dummies”. Yes, Allah “Chose” the jew’s, He “Chose” the species consisting of monkeys, swine, devils and jinn; to return back to the Hell-fire from which they were created. The christian’s diabolical worship of a partially-eaten, jew corpse and their worshipping and serving clinically-insane, barn and zoo animals in the life of this world; mandates they receive the harshest punishment in the Hell-fire.

    ALLAH is the greatest, ALLAH is ALIVE, but the christian’s god is only a partially eaten, rotting jew corpse. ALLAHU AKBAR you rabid, jew-eating, racist, christian, cannibals of extremely low intelligence. I will be sure to tell your hostile jinn aka jew masters what loyal and obedient slaves you christians are. Enjoy your brief and evil life of fairy tales and hokum your evil jew masters have created for you, because the Hell-fire is your final destination. Only Allah’s Warriors can put-down the rabid, corpse-eating, blood-drinking, christian ghouls and send them to their partially-eaten, bled-out, rotting jew corpse they call god.

    Christians are Devil-Worshipping, Cannibalized Vampires

    I advise Christians to read the Qur’an and discover what your evil jinn aka Jew masters have kept concealed from you. Do not read the Koran, as it is a satanic version of the Qur’an, authored by evil Jew’s to hide their satanic origins; the Children of Satan aka the Children of Israel. Christian’s arrogance is only exceeded by their brutal stupidity, as Muslims and Jews both know the following Commandments invalidate Christianity; yet Christians continue to disobey Allah and perform vile, uncivilized, inhumane and depraved acts of cannibalism and vampirism on a dead Jews corpse and call it “Holy” Communion. Christians are being willfully ignorant, as they all know it was Allah and NOT Jesus who parted the Red Sea to allow the Jews to escape the pursuing Egyptians and the vampires also know that it was Allah and NOT Jesus who spoke to Moses on Mt. Sinai; yet the delusional ghouls continue to worship a murdered, Jew as their god.

    1.You shall have no other gods before Me.
    2.You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in the heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth.

    Christians worship their murdered Jew god by eating his tortured and battered corpse like cannibals; they exceed all religious bounds by drinking his blood like vampires. Christianity was founded on violence, as Christians have taken the murder weapon (cross) as their symbol of faith; as the cross is nothing more than an object from the crime scene and Christian’s penchant for violence is never-ending as they regularly use violence against their own defenseless children; as violence against their own children is called for in their forged “Holy” Bible .You spare the rod, you spoil the child). However, the most vile and evil act the depraved Christians perform in their pagan rituals is the invocation of Satan in his original form; “a smokeless flame of fire” when they light candles on the altar. Christianity is permeated with sects of violent terrorist cells; the Aryan Brotherhood, a violent and racist sect and the KKK, whose sole purpose for existence is to inflict Christian terror into African-Americans and the hooded cowards use their symbol of faith; the cross, which they set ablaze and leave behind as their ‘terrorist’ calling card; yet they are not the most evil sect of Christians. Evangelicals are the most evil of sects within the cult of Christianity; Evangelicals are the evilest of “all” mankind. Evangelicals are not satisfied with merely eating the corpse and drinking the blood of their dead Jew god and invoking Satan in his original form. Evangelicals invite demons to possess their bodies so they can communicate (Speaking in Tongues) with Satan and they actually believe demonic possession is acceptable because the demons (ghosts and spirits) are “Holy” Spirits and “Holy” Ghosts.

    The Jew’s forgery of the Holy Bible has reduced it to an instruction manual (How to Worship and Serve Your Hostile Jew Masters for Dummies) for those stupid enough to be a Christian. Christianity only benefits the Jews in the life of this world and it will be of no benefit to anyone in the Hereafter; but will be the justification for an eternity of torment and humiliation in the Hell-fire for those who call themselves Christians. You Christian ghouls have two options; you can continue to follow your greedy and hostile Jew masters to the Hell-fire from which their father Israel aka Satan was created and will return; or you can follow Allah, the God of your father, Adam, to Paradise, from which he was created. Additionally, you Christians can improve your mental health by getting off your mind-debilitating, Christian Cannibal Cuisine of cursed Jew (pork), Jew-god corpse and Jew-god blood. Why in the F U C K do you cannibalized ghouls eat the corpse of your DEAD, Jew man-god?

    Folks, we are thankful for this additional revelation for a person who represents the "religion of peace". And yet they are many, including demented leftist Jews, who remain locked into total denial. People like Reem mean what they say.

    This one brief excerpt by Reem is sufficient:
    "Yes, Allah “Chose” the jew’s, He “Chose” the species consisting of monkeys, swine, devils and jinn; to return back to the Hell-fire from which they were created. The christian’s diabolical worship of a partially-eaten, jew corpse and their worshipping and serving clinically-insane, barn and zoo animals in the life of this world; mandates they receive the harshest punishment in the Hell-fire."

    How many of the new Canadian Left are our Vietnam deserters and/or their children, or who have been influenced by this group of cowards? Many of these cowards supported the Vietcong and screamed "baby killers" at our soldiers!

    These American groups, like United for Peace and Justice which is a Communist Party USA front, have a campaign today to encourage our soldiers to go AWOL, to desert, and they will aid in their defense using their friends in the National Lawyers Guild! I did read of a soldier who did this very thing and he was found guilty and is now abandoned by the very people who supported him. Who should be at fault? The useful idiot or the group that encouraged him?

    A close look into the Communist Party USA mission will reveal that their mission is to aid any group or country that seeks Israel's destruction! Many of their fronts are Jew-based as FAKE JEWS, in the same vein as FAKE REVERENDS like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, are the main supporters who claim to be Jews in name only but are the vocal minority. Many of these FAKE JEWS are in the front "Boycott Divestment Sanctions" which seeks to end the $30 Billion they claim is given to Israel. These same FAKE JEWS support these flotillas and blame Israel. If these FAKE JEWS go to Israel on "fact-finding missions," they immediately team up with other Leftist groups who sympathize with Hamas and Hezbollah and then they come home and are guest speakers, and now experts, at Hate/Blame-Israel rallies!

    Any and all diagnosis of the Middle East MUST include the role of the Communist Party USA and their fronts who usually hide under the banner of "peace!"

    While the political climate in Canada has shifted to the right in recent years,Canada still remains liberal.The shift is perhaps not surprising and may be somewhat natural and "democratic" in that it recognizes the changing demographics and power realities here e.g.Western (Alberta) oil and other commodities.However,there will forever remain a large,influential liberal politic in Canada that recognizes the injustices in the world and speaks and acts on their behalf e.g.Nazi Germany,Apartheid South Africa,Despotic Iran,Racial Rhodesia,Cruel N.Korea,Zionist Israel.Thank God.muchiboy

    My response to A.Atamanenckos reply to me .
    "MrAtamanenko
    You are grossly mistaken here.
    The blockade of a hostile territory is legal under the law of blockades. The San Remo Manual 1994 allows Israel to have a military blockade of a hostile territory bent on the death of all Jews and the destruction of the State of Israel. There have been in fact less deaths due to the blockade on both sides.
    By supporting these misguided fools you are in fact breaching the law and aiding and abetting the militants . The 9 who died on Mavi were all but 1 linked to militant organizations . If you saw the Iranian Press TV clip taken before they set sail, you would see IHH militants vowing to attack the IDF. I suggest you watch BBC Death in the Mediterranean part 1 & 2. You will clearly see the militants attack IDF and they have a right to meet deadly force with the same.
    Look up the San Remo Manual 1994 and you will see that the sec 102 allows for the blockade and secs allow for the enforcement of the blockade even on aid ships. After warnings they are subject to attack if they do not follow orders to stop or redirect as directed.
    Breaching a blockade is an act of war and you are supporting a fools game !"

    "The UN agency for Palestinian refugees said today it has halted all aid shipments into the Gaza Strip after the Hamas government seized thousands of tonnes of food and other provisions.

    The UN Relief and Works agency said it made the decision after Hamas personnel intercepted an aid shipment for the second time this week.

    In a statement, the agency said 10 truckloads of flour and rice delivered into Gaza yesterday were taken away by trucks affiliated with the Hamas-run social affairs ministry. Earlier this week, Hamas police took away thousands of blankets and food parcels meant for needy residents.

    The UN said the suspension would remain in effect until the aid is returned and the agency receives credible assurances from the Hamas government that such thefts will end. There was no immediate reaction from Hamas."

    Today is Canada Day. Canadians and allied soldiers have fought and are fighting and have died to Rid the world of “Extreme Moslem Terrorists, today’s Nazis. The whole call game has changed , Al Quaida, Taliban, Hizbulla, and Hamas are killing their own …..They are the ones who use children suicide bombers, palce bombs in Hotels, and restaurants, and at schools, and murder
    babies and infants sleeping in their cribs..I , an old timer, born in Canada, have
    visited the Holy Land many times and have been an eye witness to what I write
    In the June 2011 UN Report, Israel allows 150 trucks( and semi trailers) to Enter Gaza. These are full of humanitarian supplies, medical supplies and medicine, and construction equipment. so in effect Israel foots the bill to aid Palestinians in Gaza.
    Gaza is not a Prison , Gazans can enter and leave through Egyptian and Israeli
    checkpoints. Hamas rules Gaza with terror and fear and has killed and maimed more of its own citizens than the IDF.
    Gaza has been launching missiles and mortars at Israel for over 8 years, and has kept a kidnapped at and undisclosed prison with out any basic rights including RED Cross visits. In contrast In Israeli Prisons Terrorists have regular visiting rights, newspapers, TVs and cellular phones. They are allowed
    to study, and get diplomas and University Degrees, all at Israeli taxpayers
    expense.
    Those on the Flotilla are siding and supporting these terrorists regimes while
    our soldiers and allies are fighting to stop the spread of terrorism …
    AND SO IN MY EYES THEY ARE SIMPLY TRAITORS ….THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RETURN TO OUR COUNTRY OR ANY OTHER WESTERN COUNTRY… AND IF THEY DO THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND SENTENCED AS TRAITORS………
