The Big Lie: ‘Israel Apartheid’

Supporters of Israel Apartheid drives should instead take aim at Hamas, along with other terrorist regimes seeking to destroy the Jewish state and slander its citizens, and subject their own citizens to human rights violations. A gay man from the West bank, now living in Tel Aviv for 12 years, and featured in Haaretz, for example, arrived in Israel at age 14 because, he says: “If I returned to Nablus, it would be like throwing paper into a fire.” He rarely goes back to visit his family for fear of attack and torture by Palestinian police. As even interim Canadian Liberal Leader Bob Rae noted in a release this past week: “Israeli Apartheid Week continues to defy logic and the cause of social justice.” He went on to state that organizers of IAW choose to ignore the appalling massacres and human rights violations currently going on in Syria and Iran.

Apartheid in Israel does not exist; however, gender apartheid , in which women are treated as things, but things that carry your honor; and apartheid against gays — as well as racism and slavery against blacks, Palestinians and non-Muslims — are all commonplace in the Muslim world. In Saudi Arabia, some roads are marked for Muslims and others for non-Muslims, while Bibles are not even allowed into the country. In Lebanon, Palestinians are unable to become citizens or work a number of jobs, and are kept in overcrowded and wretched ghettos called “refugee camps.” As Canada’s Immigration Minister Jason Kenney noted about Israel Apartheid Week: “There is a point at which well-intentioned debate is overrun by hatred and intolerance; creating a toxic environment that prevents meaningful dialogue on important issues from taking place.” This intimidation and toxicity has no place on the campuses of our Western societies.

    These complainers who think that selling the muslim religeon and destroying life could by any means be called Israel Aparteid…..is just as rediculus as the Godless acts of the gay/lesbian lifestyle thrown into our faces here in the States…The land has always belonged to Israel….maybe they need to relocate themselves to a remote place and live…..

There is not even a hint of recognition that Hamas deliberately fires rockets at civilian targets in Israel while storing arms and rocket launchers among its own civilians in Gaza.

No one with any sanity would dream of rationalizing or justifying the depredations perpetrated on the Arab world by ISIS.

With $2 billion on hand the Islamic State is an extremely well-funded terrorist group that may pose a major international crisis for the U.S. and the world. Learn about their rise to power and the toll they’ve taken thus far.

In the recent Gaza war and its aftermath, we saw a totally illogical reaction from the world.

A., a teacher: “I do not know a single Gazan who is pro-Hamas at the moment, except for those on its payroll.”

Is the global community clear in its response to these extremist groups?

Like our fabled character, Don Quixote, President Obama has constantly spawned his own reality.

Boroujerdi was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed.”

Fatah: Hamas stole relief aid for Gaza and distributed it amongst its followers in mosques.

Can teenagers seriously be expected to behave properly when they are surrounded by so much suggestive material? Is it fair to expose them (and ourselves) to so much temptation and then tell them, “Just say no”?

Washington remains ignorant of the need to dismantle alliances with various Muslim countries.

Defeating IS requires bombing its strongholds and recognizing the violent nature of Islam.

Abbas again used the UN to attack Israel, distort history, and undermine prospects for peace.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority cannot even agree to move their clocks back on the same day.

“Christ at the Checkpoint” conference was a “who’s who of the new anti-Israel narrative.”

Blaming America and appealing to a presumed guilt will not solve the problem of Muslim radicals wishing to infiltrate, dominate, Islamize and kill Western citizens.

The heat being generated from the Keystone controversy may well have had an influence upon Obama’s gaffe in comparing U.S.-Canada relations to Israel-Palestinian relations.

Building U.S.-Canada relations is more urgent than ever, both economically and in foreign affairs. If America intends to keep its advantage as a superpower, it will greatly help to ally with its neighbor, Canada. While Canada has depended upon the U.S. historically as the stronger military might, it has, under a Conservative Government, demonstrated global leadership in economic policy and foreign affairs. Given the rise of economic superpowers such as China and India, and the challenges from our enemies, such as Islamists, a strong foreign policy and a functional economy are key.

Despite the news of Canada’s decision and Baird’s justification for breaking diplomatic ties with Iran, much more action needs to be taken by Western nations. For example putting Hizbollah on the EU’s terror list.

A tight, organized network of Iranian terrorists seems to be using elementary schools, universities and government institutions — not to mention manipulating the multicultural system — to promote its messages of propaganda and hate, apparently with the ultimate goal of conquering the “infidel.”

The drive to have the Church of the Nativity recognized as a global heritage site is nothing short of offensive. Christians have been driven out of their ancestral lands; Palestinians have shown nothing but hostility to both Christians and Jews. Moreover, Christ himself was a Jew.

The United Church of Canada Working Group’s objectives do not even take into account the Jihadist call to war against Israel , and children being taught in Palestinian schools to hate and kill Jews. This hatred has nothing to do with the so-called “occupation,” as Palestinian children are indoctrinated to believe, but is instead fuelled by Israel having a different ideology of true Democracy and Human Rights in a region where most leaders are hostile to both.
