Zionist Appeasement: A Blight on the
Canadian Political Landscape

Ever since the Conservative Party formed a minority government in the ethnically cleansed territory designated Canada, an abrupt rightward shift has occurred in Canadian government policy. The Conservative Party has chosen to openly support the zionist regime in the ethnically cleansed historical Palestine -- what the ethnic cleansers have renamed Israel.

But to target only the Conservative Party of Canada would be unfair because the other three major political parties in Canada are also infiltrated by Zionist appeasers. [1] Former New Democratic Party (NDP) leader, Alexa McDonough, attempted to defend herself from an accusation of supporting zionist apartheid. Said she, "The NDP supports Palestinians' right to a safe and secure homeland, and Israel's right to exist." [2] McDonough needs to unequivocally answer at least two questions: 1) What about Palestine's right to exist? 2) Does McDonough insist that European invaders have a right to establish an existential state on the millennia-old homeland of indigenous Palestinians?

The previous Liberal Party leader and prime minister, Paul Martin, went so far as to state, "Israel's values are Canada's values." Undeniably, history reveals that land theft through ethnic cleansing is a value that Canada and Israel share.

Current Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper has upped the ante in the public displays of obsequiousness to Zionism. Painting other political parties as "fair-weather friends" of Israel, Harper declared Israel would always have a "steadfast friend" in a Canadian Conservative government.

Refusing to be outdone, official opposition leader Stéphane Dion, nauseatingly stated his Liberal Party "will continue to proudly support, as a cornerstone of our foreign policy, the right of Israel to exist in peace and security." [3] The major parties in Canadian national politics have engaged in a shameless pursuit of Jewish influence.

Zionism is unquestionably racism, and Harper's Zionism points to a connection with anti-Islam. Harper is a member of a protestant evangelical denomination called the Christian and Missionary Alliance, which depicts non-Christians (Muslims) as the "enemy." [4] This marks a continuation of the historical line from Canada's first prime minister, the protestant Orangeman John A. Macdonald, a Conservative Party leader who divulged his racist animus when he stated of the Métis: "These impulsive half-breeds have got spoiled by this emeute (uprising) and must be kept down by a strong hand until they are swamped by the influx of settlers."

Harper supports "the influx of settlers" in Palestine. He is forming an Israel Allies Caucus, which is "meant to mobilize support for the State of Israel and promote Judeo-Christian values." [5] As well as, apparently, incorporating ethnic cleansing as a Judeo-Christian value, it represents the creeping influence of religion into the secular Canadian government. It also represents a diminution for minority religions in Canada; although Judaism is numerically a minority religion, it is promoted over numerically greater Islam. Furthermore, when the percentage of Christians is on the downslide and the percentage of those people professing no religion is increasing [6], why is the government turning away from secularism?

Although support for ethnic cleansing is strong among Jews in Israel [7], progressive Jews in Canada, under the national umbrella of the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians, have condemned the Israel Allies Caucus. Despite this, many Canadian politicians are hell-bent on supporting Zionism contrary to the will of "an overwhelming majority of Canadians -- 77 percent" who indicated a preference for a "neutral foreign policy in the Middle East." One wonders, however, what there is to be neutral about in the case of ethnic cleansing.

The new pro-Zionist lobby was made official in Ottawa by Harper and Canadian and Israeli parliamentarians, including the notorious advocate of ethnic cleansing, MK Benny Elon. [8]

In 1938, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain promoted the Munich Agreement which accepted the annexation of the Sudetenland (a region in Czechoslovakia with a majority of German speakers) to Nazi Germany. Chamberlain referred to it as "bringing peace with honor." Because Nazi Germany soon occupied all of Czechoslovakia, this dishonored agreement has come to symbolize the worse quality of appeasement. [9] Other major powers supported the agreement, including Canadian prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King and the United States president Franklin D. Roosevelt.

It is hardly surprising that a political party which mistreats the Original Peoples would so openly and brazenly appease the ethnic cleansers of historical Palestine. Such a party is a blight on the Canadian political map, as are the other appeasing political parties. The sad state of affairs is that, currently, a vote in a Canadian federal election is a denial of Palestinian human rights.
