Trudeau the Lesser's Liberals did backflips to support Israel's brutal outrage against Gaza's civilian population this summer. It was as though no one had ever heard the Israeli military's term, Dahiyeh. Of course you didn't need any fancy terms to see that Israel was brutally - and quite illegally - targeting Gaza's Palestinian population completely in flagrant violation of human rights laws and the laws of war. That much is obvious when the side with strike jets takes down the public's water and sewage plants and then moves on to hit schools and hospitals, even clearly designated UN refuge sites. I was never so disgusted with the Liberal Party, not even under Ignatieff.
The Dippers worked off the same page until Mulcair woke up and realized he was bound to piss off some old school progressives in the NDP ranks. Then he hemmed and hawed and - waffled.
Well now your boy - and he is your boy - Benny Netanyahu has let his other fascist shoe drop. This time it's not Palestinians under Israeli occupation but Arab and Christian Israelis who are Netanyahu's target. The Israeli prime minister and his cabinet by a 2-1 margin have passed a bill that defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
Critics, including cabinet opponents, say the new law reserved "national rights" for Jews only and also delisted Arabic as Israel's second official language.
So Justin - and Tommy - now you're backing a country that's both fascist and racist. Is there any principle you won't compromise in your bootlicking pursuit of votes?
