B'nai Brith waking up to the nature of their fellow "stakeholders" in the Canadian Human Rights Commission

B'nai Brith may be discovering another point of disagreement with the Canadian Human Rights Commission: the latter's labeling of the Canadian Arab Federation as a "stakeholder" (see Blazing Cat Fur and Covenant Zone: Canadian Human Rights Commission and Greg Felton: how many degrees of separation?).

Not only has the CAF been publishing the likes of Greg Felton and been involved in distributing antisemitic fliers at the 2006 Liberal party leadership convention, but its leader has lately taken to calling our politicians "professional whores".

And this is the organization that receives government funding to help "settle" immigrants and "fight" hate crime.

B'nai Brith has now sent out the following press release (received via email):
'Canadian Arab Federation on notice for dissemination
of pro-terrorist propaganda from abroad,' says B'nai Brith Canada

TORONTO, February 5, 2009 – B'nai Brith Canada has called for a full investigation of Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) activities, following the discovery that the organization disseminated pro-terrorist propaganda in a January 16th email sent to subscribers to its Gaza Daily Bulletin. Bloc Quebecois MP Maria Mourani had apparently unwittingly shared the CAF newsletter's video links that promoted terrorism in an email to her parliamentary colleagues, for which she was rebuked by her Party leader Gilles Duceppe and by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

"This is a clear case of a Canadian-based organization actively involved in the promotion of pro-terrorist propaganda that should be of concern to everyone," said Frank Dimant, B'nai Brith Canada's Executive Vice President

"Links to video clips distributed by CAF featured prominently disturbing images of Hamas operatives undergoing terrorist training, photos of young children being indoctrinated into violence, and the image of Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, in exile in Syria, rallying his followers. The recurring images of the flags of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, two terrorist groups outlawed in Canada and many other countries around the world, smacks of the promotion of terrorist objectives, ideologies and methods.

"It is unconscionable that CAF, which bills itself as a mainstream Arab organization actively involved in the settlement of new immigrants to this country, has engaged in this type of activity.

"We call on CAF to accept full responsibility for its actions and to voluntarily come forward with the firm guarantee that the organization will refrain in future from the dissemination of hate propaganda that glorifies terrorism. Should it fail to do so, the Government must then step in and take appropriate steps to safeguard the Canadian public from the impact that such dangerous propaganda can have and its direct contribution to the ever-growing problem of radicalization and extremism, both at home and abroad."
While B'nai Brith does not raise the issue, those of us interested in the postmodern "human rights" world view must wonder if this latest incident is just another piece of evidence that either the Canadian Human Rights Commission (or BB for that matter) doesn't fully know what it is doing, doesn't know the logical end point of the left-liberal "human rights" world view, founded in reaction to the Holocaust: postmodern Political Correctness, when fully revealed, reveals itself as a new form of antisemitism, of rivalry over Jewish historical priority, in this case over the symbol of the unquestionable victim of the "Nazi/Jew" dynamic, the genocidal event that is remembered more than any other for revealing the unquestionably evil capacity of a modern Western society, implicating all its professions and most of its members. This postmodern competition over the most horrific revelation of Jewish historical centrality is why we now see the many incredibly hateful and insane comparisons of Israel with the Nazi state.

Or, does the Canadian Human Rights Commission and other PC elements in Canadian government know and accept its own latent antisemitism in pandering to this hate's Arab-"Canadian" avatars?

I wish we had a shootout at the CHRC Corral!

Taking shots at these folks? The man said he'd be willing to engage in a battle of wits, but not against an unarmed man. CHRC and that lot are shooting themselves so badly every day I just keep my head down till they're all a good likeness of Swiss cheese.
