Our Canadian PM is trying to make boycotting Israel a hate crime.

How much of an A-hole so you have to be that you need to throw people in prison who won't do business with you?

I am would not be surprised is senators or congrespeople tried that in the US. AIPAC owns so many of our politicians.

In January, Canada's then foreign affairs minister, John Baird, signed a "memorandum of understanding" with Israeli authorities in Jerusalem, pledging to combat BDS.

It described the movement as "the new face of anti-Semitism."

A few days later, at the UN, Canadian Public Security Minister Steven Blaney went much further.

He conflated boycotts of Israel with anti-Semitic hate speech and violence, including the deadly attacks that had just taken place in Paris on the Charlie Hebdo magazine and Kosher supermarket.

Our current federal regime is beyond anything encountered here in Canada. What I posted above is the views of federal cabinet ministers, not internet forum trolls that you would expect such ignorance from. These people are tabling actual legislation.

It is incredible. You can have your opinion, but legislating against boycott on another nation is beyond the pale. It has chilling effects.

Just another lame attack led by a lame warhawk who always seeks to demonized anyone who isn't on his side. The facts are the National Union of Students did have a vote to condemn ISIS but one rogue student led a campaign against saying it would be Islamophobic to do so. But even though the vote did not pass, many disagreed with her. So Netanyahu is once again just being himself, a monger of hate against anyone who doesn't support him in the name Israel.

National Union of Students refuses to condemn ISIS due to fears it would be 'Islamophobic'


The National Union of Students has come under fire after it refused to condemn ISIS - because of fears it was 'Islamophobic'.

Students put forward a motion at the body's National Executive Council meeting calling for the condemnation of terrorist atrocities and support for the Iraqi people.

But the call was defeated after a rebellion led by Black Students Officer Malia Bouattia, who said the motion was merely a 'justification for war'.



One student, who wished to remain anonymous, said: 'Islamophobia is a meaningless term used by irrational people when unable to rebut a rational criticism.

'Malia Bouattia should realise how lucky she is to be able to stand up and express her opinions with freedom and security.
'She would not enjoy the same freedom if she were to visit the ISIS/ISIL that she refuses to condemn, and protested her opinions.'

Another added: 'I personally would find something rather Islamophobic in Ms Bouattia's idea that condemning ISIS is also to condemn the other, approximately two billion Muslims on the planet - who don't rape minorities or murder journalists.



But Birmingham student Malia Bouattia led a team who either abstained or voted against the proposal, leading to the motion's defeat.

She said: 'We recognise that condemnation of ISIS appears to have become a justification for war and blatant Islamaphobia.
'This rhetoric exacerbates the issue at hand and in essence is a further attack on those we aim to defend.

'The NUS Black Students' Campaign stands in support of Black communities across the globe and uncompromisingly against imperialism and Western interference which history shows all too often leads to the suffering of Black people.

No, obsession borders on hate . I've told you time and time again that I support the two state solution. I also do not approve of Israel's actions .


Eh, but if someone really is concerned both with Israel's actions and also Israeli and Western claims about critics, then why is it "obsession" or "hate." Doesn't Netanyahu as well as others incite response when they dismiss all critics with things like this or even worse, "anti-semitism" claims?

a reply to: Swills There is absolutely no argument , or shouldn't be, that ISIS should just be removed from the planet. However, the US has blood on it's hands, weapons we gave to Syrian rebels ended up with ISIS. A terrible mistake the US seems bound and determined to repeat over and over again in different regions or even the same, repeatedly.

I can't blame students, they are idealistic and they see something like that and something goes wrong in their mind. Or they are just naive. I was once.

But, ISIS has nothing to do with islamophobia, it was here way before ISIS. I just comment on why I think a few votes went the wrong way.

[snipped]

Now about this boycott biz. I have been challenging myself to send a letter off to the feds and CC the RCMP stating my intentions to boycott Israeli products. I have not done it yet and I am usually very unaffraid to challenge the government or thier paramilitary police force. This one sends chills down my back and makes me affraid unfortunately.

Yeah, and you brought the hate to it


Netanyahu has often been described as arrogant by other politicians, which is true, but he's also very sinister in the way he words his speeches. Metaphorically speaking, a snake.

Israel is a country that imports/exports products and services.

ISIS is a terrorist organization that moves around and isn't a country.

One you can "boycott" the other you cannot.


This was my first thought too...

I will gladly boycott ISIS is ole Benny wants to point me to what I need to boycott.

They boycott Israel but they refuse to boycott ISIS. That tells you everything you want to know about the BDS movement. They condemn Israel and do not condemn ISIS; they condemn themselves

source


In America we call this "throwing people under the bus".

Netanyahu is throwing ISIS under the bus, because they're the closest group that is even close to as evil as they are; the only group that's even close to perpetrating the kind of things that Israel unfortunately does in recent times.

People who are in a knowingly dominant position compared to others will throw them "under the bus" when they feel threatened, especially if said person being thrown under the bus is doing dirt openly.

This POS is still in charge and running his mouth like a bigger idiot than ever. I had a roommate that was as delusional and untruthful as this scumbag. He didn't last long.

"Oh, you caught us doing something wrong? Well so what! This other completely unrelated group of people did something bad too! You're an anti-Semite for disagreeing with us!"

So does this mean I can go and kill someone, and nobody will have the right to convict me of a crime simply because there are other people in the world who have killed more than one person? That's essentially the argument Netanyahu is making... Accusing these student groups of being wrong for calling him out, just because some other group of people is committing wrongs as well.

WTF Bibi, you've lost the plot.....again.

Please advise what service or product ISIS provides to the modern, non-extremist, non-murderous, peace-loving global population that warrants boycotting them?

Get your choice of "making a comparison" right by using the correct terminology and you might be taken Syriasly.

Idiot.
