Amir Khadir Justifies Terrorism
This is the second time this year he has refused unanimous consent to an all party resolution. Readers will recall that he refused to allow debate on a motion that was to condemn the boycott of a Montreal shoe store, by a rag-tag group of ex-pat Palestinians, local communists and a bunch self-loathing Jews, because the store stocked Israeli shoes.
That unpopular boycott, which flopped terribly, was roundly rejected by the vast majority of Quebeckers.
Tuesday's motion, agreed upon by everyone in the National Assembly, save Mr. Khadir, was cobbled together after much discussion by the three major parties.
"Quebec has and will continue to be an ally of the whole international community in security issues and more particularly against the menace of terrorism"" Link
The motion also noted "The perseverance of the United States and its allies in the quest for greater security around the world."
This of course was too much for Mr. Khadir who told reporters that the language of the motion reminded him of George Bush.
Mr. Khadir, pussyfooted around, making all sorts of excuses as to why he would not support the motion, but his motives remain transparent.
Anything that can put Islam or Islamic countries in a bad light must be rejected, while anything that reflects poorly on the West, particularly America and Israel must be supported.
Mr. Khadir went on to actually justify terrorism by telling reporters that the declaration adopted by the Assembly should also have considered the causes of terrorism, including the Palestinian question.
He also noted we should consider the fact that Islamist terrorism is waning, and intimated that the Islamo-fanatics were somehow coming to their senses.
Instead, Mr. Khadir might consider that the decline in terrorism is more likely the result of the war on terrorism waged by the West, something he refused to support by voting against the resolution!
Calling the death of Osama bin Laden a political assassination, Mr. Khadir reminds us that his outlook on the world is largely based on the fantasy that Muslims are victims and Westerners are persecutors and colonialists.
Mr. Khadir remains a shining example of hypocrisy that is the hallmark of the anti-Israel, anti-America community that regularly bashes the West, but remains silent in the face of fascism and repression that is the basis of society of most of the Arab/Muslim nations.
You'll recall that Mr. Khadir was so furious over the death of twelve activists on a boat running the Gaza blockade and intercepted by the Israeli navy that he demanded that the National Assembly pass a resolution crafted by himself condemning Israel as a barbaric nation.
He accused Israel of war crimes in it's war with the terrorist government of Gaza after they had bombarded Israel for months with all manner of rocket fire.
Mr, Khadir and his cohorts have always maintained that they are not targeting Israel because it is Jewish, but rather because it is evil.
Well how about those Middle Eastern countries that Mr. Khadir is so fond of. There's plenty of evil over there!
The government of Syria's crackdown on its own citizens has already resulted in more civilian deaths (over 800 to date) than occurred during Operation Cast Lead. With no let up in sight, the regime is getting more and more brutal and savage each day. Reports of torture, imprisonment, beatings and murder continue to be widely reported.
Where are the marches, demonstrations and campus rallies to protest Colonel Gaddafy's war against his citizens that has cost over six times the lives lost in the Gaza war, with no end in sight?
If Mr. Khadir thinks Israel indiscriminately bombarded Gaza, he should check out the city of Misrata!
Where is the outrage by Mr. Khadir?
How about throwing a shoe at a picture of Assad or Gaddafy?
While certain Canadian organizations prepare to embark on an embargo busting boat trip to Gaza, meant to humiliate Israel, perhaps they can make a detour Syria and Libya to deliver medical supplies, much needed as a result of the savage assault of the people by their own government.
No, I don't think that is on.... it doesn't fit Mr. Khadir's narrative.
