The Canadian Greens endorsed BDS, which is big news because Canada in its entirety has proven to be a useful tool for the Israel and neoconservative lobby groups and think tanks which have politicians so scared and under complete control. Elizabeth May, who leads the green party, and wishes to step down, perhaps because she cannot carry the weight of openly being a real activist, told the news that she was disappointed her own party voted so strongly to endorse BDS. Other members of the green party voiced their disappointment as well.
The greens supporting BDS doesn’t do much. It is a nice victory, for sure. But, the federal government and the lobbyists have sheer power on their side. There could be a green party coup before you know it. Only a few years ago was the party led by a staunch zionist named Paul Estrin. My point is there’s a chance this will be overturned later on. And, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne along with MPPs like Gila Martow are busy consistently pandering to Israel. So is the Prime Minister himself. In fact, these evil politicians aim to outlaw BDS, despite many unions and organizations in Canada fully endorsing BDS.
The greens understandably are under huge pressure by the aforementioned Israel lobby, which has a very strong influence in Canada, just as it does in America. These lobbyists and leaders of foundations that throw secret fundraisers for politicians coincidentally have the ability to whenever they want write for propaganda outlets. Michael Mostyn, chief executive officer of Jewish organization B’nai Brith Canada, called the Green Party’s position on BDS “antisemitic.” This man claims to speak on behalf of world Jewry. His entire career is to ensure that the racist zionist regime of “Israel” can continue to commit its indefinite military occupation and apartheid of the Palestinian people without any repercussions for “Israel” by the international community. This is why the lobbyists never mention the atrocities zionist extremists have taken part in, like assassinating entire families, leaving only their baby alive; or any other example that happens on a daily basis, such as the execution of a motionless injured Palestinian caught on video.
We are talking about the regime that murdered children in front of Western TV reporters, and then ruled that it, the oppressive regime, had been justified.
Another lobbyist, Avi Benlolo, who heads FSWC, another lobby group, who claims to be a human rights activist, who often times posts entries in the Canadian Jewish News, for example, is also allegedly livid with the green party. These men, along with many other men and women whose sole profession is to lobby for a totally pro-Israel foreign policy within Canada, call BDS antisemitic, and associate the movement with terror. The irony of this, of course, is that these people and their zionist organizations, are the most antisemitic–they are justifying modern day genocide as well as an expansionist globalist agenda in the middle east, with having the one and only Jewish state. They have colonized an entire people and militarily occupied them in the name of Jews.
The problem zionists are facing today is that the white Jewish immigrants they brought from Europe are still outnumbered by the indigenous Palestinians. If the zionist regime were to cease its occupation, it would be forced to either allow all Palestinians the right to vote in Israel, or it must accept an actual Palestinian state, which does not appear feasible considering how relatively small Palestine is in its entirety. What “Israel” does now, though, is oppress an entire people through military rule, thus denying them basic human rights, therefore considering them subhuman. If they’re subhuman, then “Israel” is technically a Jewish state, right? Most of the Arabs don’t count. Often times, they are busy being bombed just a couple blocks away.
Here are the tenants of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement: Ending its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall; Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; Respecting, protecting and promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.
Obviously BDS is not antisemitic, and it is in fact the zionist lobby which is antisemitic, along with the gangster state called “Israel” in its current fascist form. Zionists call BDS antisemitic, however. The tenants, clearly though, do not list anything about Judaism, or any religion for that matter. How can a movement which calls for basic human rights be antisemitic? It doesn’t even mention the Jewish religion. It should indicate to one with a proper functioning brain that those in power don’t like human rights. They like dividing the masses and exploiting countries for their resources.
To give an example of propaganda, the CBC finished off its lame report on the greens’ policy decision with the following: “In May more than 1,500 students filled the United Nations General Assembly for a conference sponsored by the Israeli mission on how best to combat the movement on many U.S. campuses.” The reality is, the UN is literally funded and controlled by corporate and political elites–right wingers and dictators. And the 1500 students are nothing compared to the amount of students and young people that oppose zionist crimes and the occupation. The CBC chose not to report that the great Demond Tutu endorses BDS, nor that the Black Lives Matter movement does as well, as well as so many others. In its propaganda piece, the CBC gave ignorant viewers a few facts, framing them in a way that paints “Israel” as the victim, whereas it is the Palestinians who lack basic human right and are bombed in their sleep by the thousands.
What really happened at the green party convention is this: the members gathered and 300 delegates debated, and they were heated debates with a lot of bickering. The greens who opposed this resolution were in for a pay day. That’s kind of what politicians do–look for opportunistic moments and take them. May herself didn’t want this result. But her friend, Corey Levine, who I mistook for a man in my tweet, put forth the BDS and JNF proposals, and for her and many other members, as well as many other Canadians, this was very important and defining. Thankfully, May’s career isn’t so vivid and glorious, since she’s often times slandered for non-BDS related things anyway, and she was able to put aside her ego and allow her party to develop in the way a majority of them had decided to. I would also thank May for clearly indicating to the press that BDS is within the charter of rights and freedoms, insinuating that it truly would be draconian for Trudeau and Wynne to seriously put forth a resolution outlawing BDS in Canada.
With BDS as part of its policy, the greens may win over some votes, and if electoral reform is to take place, that will have the green party poised to use some real political power. There’s still a long way to go, and I have my doubts, but at least this is something. However, with the way members of the greens are talking, like the BDS strategy being “ineffective,” or that endorsing it is a “risky strategy,” I wouldn’t be utterly shocked if the greens, once having some amount of power, overturned this BDS policy.
