Canadian Liberal MP meets with board members of the pro intifada Palestine House.(Cijnews).

 Liberal Member of Parliament for Mississauga-Erin Mills, Ontario, Iqra Khalid, who studied Criminology at York University and committed to bring to parliament a “fresh” and “progressive perspective”, met (January 18, 2016) with senior members of the Canadian Palestinian community and board members of the Mississauga-based Palestine House , including Dr. Nazih Khatatba
Meshwar newspaper (Issue 148, January 22, 2016, P. 40) reported on the event as follows (originally in Arabic):

“Activists of the Palestinian community in Erin Mills, Mississauga [Ontario] held an event honouring MP Iqra Khalid, who won the federal elections because of the voters from Muslim and Arab descent. The purpose of the event was to strengthen the relationship between the members of the [Palestinian] community and the Liberal members of Parliament.
“The event was attended by a large number of members of the Palestinian community who reside in this area and Arab journalists, in an effort to embolden and strengthen the standing of the [Palestinian] community in any future elections and to get involved in the political and social life of the Canadian multi-cultural society.

The Palestine House stands by the Palestinian al-Quds Intifada also dubbed The Knife Intifada.

The Palestine House was de-funded in 2012 by the federal government for what then Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney referred to as a “pattern of support for extremism.”
Minister Kenney’s spokesperson said that “Palestine House has in the last few years aligned itself with terrorist causes, including celebrating the release of terrorists and honouring the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), one of the groups that formed the Palestine Liberation Organization and in the 1960s and ’70s, was responsible for numerous armed attacks and aircraft hijackings.”

In 2014, The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) submitted to Peel Region Police several complaints of possible hate crimes allegedly committed by Meshwar newspaper. The complaints documented cases of anti Jewish rhetoric including sympathizing with a terrorist attack (Jerusalem massacre), posting an article questioning the veracity of the Holocaust and a cartoon that depicted the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu drinking the blood of Palestinian children. No charges have been laid against the Palestine House.  Hmmmm..........'Real Change'. Read the full story here.

  1. Diversity and inclusion of others is a good thing but Liberal Western politicians seem to think that reaching out to Muslims no matter which ones is inherently good. It's true that there are moderate Muslims. Reach out to them. Put the ones with terrorist ties under police survailence. It's not racist to do it to biker gangs and mafia groups.
