Donolo Liberals Same As Davey Liberals...

The PM leaves the country on government business and like clockwork, the Liberals quickly assume faux scandal #17,865.

"OTTAWA – Angry Liberals accused the Conservative government of reaching a new political low by circulating flyers accusing the Grits of being ant-Semitic.

The "scandalous" flyers, endorsed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and which target ridings with large Jewish communities, accuse the Liberals of participating in an anti-Semitic conference in Durban, supporting terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah and specifically go after Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff for accusing Israel of committing war crimes".

Sorry guys, but:
#1 Liberals did attend a conference in Durban which few would argue was not anti-Semitic.

2. Liberals refused to have Hezbollah labelled as a terrorist group. And if I remember right there were some opposition MP's at rallies in Quebec for said groups.

3. You guys do realize Ignatieff did in fact state Israel may be reponsible for war crimes, no? Of course, that was one of Iffy's quicker flip-flops, right up there with asbestos, HST, etc., so maybe you missed the quick change in position.

And hey, whatever happened to Iffy. Since his rapid decension in the polls he appears to have adopted the WK bubble boy strategy, that being out of sight, out of mind to mitigate any further damage.

Donolo has Iffy in lock up,
studying Canadian history, but only as far back as 1993.
He's on the 'how to hide a slush fund' chapter.

Funny how Libs always get suckered into diversions, like the flyers,
they just don't get how the CPC smothers negative news...

Do you remember which other countries went to Durban? How about Israel. Is Israel anti-Semitic?

It is all about context. Here is some for your edification:

"The former Liberal attorney general noted it was a Liberal government in 2002 that banned financial support to Hamas and Hezbollah.
"Let the facts show ... that it was the Liberal Party in 2002 ... (that) listed Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations. This notion that we somehow sought the delisting of Hezbollah or somehow (we are) indulging terrorism is a scandalous misrepresentation," Cotler said.
The reference to Durban, the controversial UN World Conference against Racism held from Aug. 31 to Sept. 8, 2001, in Durban, South Africa, which provided a platform for anti-Israeli sentiment, is also misleading, the Liberals said.
Cotler said he went to Durban 1 as an observer and noted that the then-Israeli government specifically asked Canada to remain at the conference "and make its voice felt and bear witness to what was happening."

And since then has the Liberal party become pro-Israel?? No! What was the point of sending didn't make a difference to the liberal mindset anyway. Between the anti-Israel rants that have been present on liblogs and the stupid things Ignatieff and company are saying, the liberal record for support for Israel is far from stellar.

And then there's the Liberals voting record in the United Nations General Assembly, every time an anti-Israel motion was put forward. I'd like to hear Cotler spin that one away.

Gayle said...

"What was the point of sending anyone..."

Israel sent someone too. Why don't you ask them why.

Face facts friends - the pamphlets are full of lies, designed to lead people like you to reach false conclusions like these. Now you desperately try to justify them by saying the LPC are not "pro-Israel anyway, so who cares about the CPC lies".

That is just kind of sad.

Why do liberals and the media get so upset when we tell the truth about them. There are pictures out there of Codere marching in support of the Hezzies.

wilson said...

Ask Irwin Cotler's wife what she thinks!

She quite the LPC because of Iffy's statements.

Canadian Press
Dec. 7 2006

''..Bob Rae was the target of anti-Semitic attacks during the Liberal leadership contest, motivated at least in part by the fact that his wife is Jewish.

Sources close to Rae say that his wife, Arlene Perly Rae, was approached during last weekend's convention by a delegate who didn't realize she was the candidate's wife. The delegate told her not to vote for Rae "because his wife is Jewish."

Perly Rae stonily informed the delegate that she was the wife in question. The delegate beat a hasty retreat.

wilson said...

"In a letter to the editor in Friday's National Post, the wife of prominent Liberal MP Irwin Cotler said she decided to give up her Liberal party membership because of Ignatieff's comments on Israel.

wilson said...

Durban 1
'Two delegations, the United States and Israel, withdrew from the conference claiming the conference was merely a pretext for the airing of virulent anti-semitism.'

I was a Liberal ... until yesterday

Re: Israeli Envoy, Rae Attack Ignatieff's Remarks, Oct. 12.

I have been an active, involved and contributing member of the Liberal party until yesterday, when I decided to give up my membership because of the statements from Michael Ignatieff, given in French to a Quebec radio station.

I was hoping that with his background as a professor of human rights, Mr. Ignatieff would be able to make the distinction between the attackers and the attacked. I would remind Mr. Ignatieff that it was a Liberal government that placed Hezbollah on the international terrorist organizations list.

I feel it was not political savvy and wisdom that Mr. Ignatieff lacked in his address in Quebec. Rather, it was a lack of moral integrity, sacrificing the truth for personal political gains in the upcoming leadership election for the party.

I, and many of my friends, will no longer be there for that event.

Ariela Cotler, Montreal

Gayle said...

Thansk wilson. Way to ignore Cotler's statement that Canada stayed on at the request of Israel.

As always, when facts are inconvenient you just ignore them.

Then again, that is what your party does so why should I think you would be any better?
