Objectionable content???

Oddly, while looking through my stats, someone has now twice flagged me for objectionable content.

Strange that. This blog is certainly not 'objectionable' and if it were I allow comments, so why not tell me?

Silly people. Though I am thinking now perhaps I should save some of my few better pieces, just in case. Gotta say though, me??? Objectionable? Gosh I'm the vanilla milkshake of objectionable!

Canadian Government? What 'Canadian' Government??

Along with leaving fellow citizens in desperate conditions abroad, our government has also decided to let Israel dictate the treatment of our own people! This, of course, should not come as a surprise for those who have seen the fealty of our elected representatives to a foreign state:

Israel Targets Palestinian Canadians

A tough Israeli crackdown that discriminates against some American citizens because they are of Palestinian origin has been sharply protested by the Obama administration, but the same treatment curtailing freedom of movement for Canadian citizens has produced no response from the Harper government.

Border guards at Israel's Ben Gurion airport have been barring entry to arriving Canadian and American citizens with Palestinian-sounding names. They are told they must make a long detour and enter via the Allenby Bridge land-border crossing that connects the West Bank with Jordan. On arrival there, their passports are stamped “Palestinian Authority only” – preventing them from entering Israel, including the annexed parts of East Jerusalem.

First off - I loathe the hyphenated Canadian thing. Are you Canadian? Fine - drop the bloody origin term it stinks of division.

Secondly, what this article fails to mention is the likely hood of this action being supported by the Security Treaty Canada signed recently with Israel. (You know the one NO ONE talks about).

Thirdly, while Cannon ignores the plight of these Canadians, he's right on the bandwagon to demonise Iran, by calling for the release of a so-called Canadian arrested there for incitement. That's fine, but don't kid yourself - Cannon is not doing this out of the goodness of his heart (he hasn't got one), he's doing it because his masters are telling him too!! It plays into the 'Let's attack Iran' mood so prevalent in our media and governments these days.

In the meantime, the Israelis will continue to oppress the Palestinians and anyone with a single droplet of aboriginal blood from that area they covet so dearly.

I ask again: What 'Canadian' government??

United Church of Canada - Anti-Semites all of them!!

Well, Bernie Farber of the Canadian Jewish Congress (Israeli is US) seems to certainly thinks so, though I'm sure Bernie finds anti-semites in his bedclothes at night.

This time though, he's after the UCC for the wording of their divestment report - which can be read here. I guess Bernie baby doesn't like the term 'apartheid' or that the UCC has named the ministers (you know the ones supposedly working for the CANADIAN constituents) whom have taken free trips to Israel as well as those who hold dual citizenship.

Gee, Bernie I guess the truth hurts eh?

While reading CBC this morning I noticed this article, as I sent off a comment, and took a gander at some of the other lame items they had listed, it had disappeared from the front page and been buried under a bunch of other meaningless dribble.

So, for the sake of the memory hole, here's the link below:
United Church drops Israel 'apartheid' wording

Delegates at the United Church of Canada's national meeting have voted almost unanimously to reject controversial language used in material for a proposed divestment and sanctions campaign against Israel.

Well, nice cave in boys! What do you want to bet that they will drop the entire divestment idea sooner rather than later? Afterall, the UCC has itself some skeletons in the closet which would be best not too see the light of day (native reserves). I wouldn't put it past the CJC having used this as a tool to get the 'language' changed - we can count on more smears coming out in the next while.

Bernie - you really need to join the human race - or move to Israel already.
