The decision to ban George Galloway from Canada seems odd, but now it emerges that the Jewish Defence League (JDL) pressured the Canadian Government to so the action takes on sinister connotations for Canada, why? Because the Jewish Defence League are according to the FBI a Terrorist Group. In its report, Terrorism 2000/2001, the FBI referred to the JDL as a “violent extremist Jewish organization”. This “violent extremist Jewish organization” now it seems has power and influence over the Canadian Government.


Canada Can’t Muzzle Me

To ban me from the country for my views on Afghanistan is absurd, hypocritical, and in vain

By George Galloway

The Canadian immigration minister Jason Kenney gazetted in the Sun yesterday morning that I was to be excluded from his country because of my views on Afghanistan. That’s the way the rightwing, last-ditch dead-enders of Bushism in Ottawa conduct their business.

Kenney is quite a card. A quick trawl establishes he’s a gay-baiter, gung-ho armchair warrior, with an odd habit of exceeding his immigration brief. Three years ago he attacked the pro-western Lebanese prime minister, Fuad Siniora, for being ungrateful to Canada for its support of Israeli bombardment of his country. Most curiously of all, in 2006 he addressed a rally of the so-called People’s Mujahideen of Iran, a Waco-style cult, banned in the European Union as a terrorist organization. On one level being banned by such a man is like being told to sit up straight by the hunchback of Notre Dame or being lectured on due diligence by Conrad Black. On another, for a Scotsman to be excluded from Canada is like being turned away from the family home.

  3. That JDL spokesman WAS quite openly making threats. He clearly said that any group wishing to hear the wisdom of George Galloway would be monitored as a terrorist organization. Scary!

  4. Even Canada didn’t or couldn’t escape the slimy, sharp claws of the Israeli sphere of influence. I never cease to be amazed at their inexplicable reach and pull, what they can do and the extent of influence and pressure they can bring to bear on anyone, any group, almost anywhere. This creepy, shadowy, little-understood and scary level of unparalleled influence must be addressed, analyzed and exposed, for what it is, to the world over, so the world would know what it’s dealing with here.
    But it’s sad yet pathetic, for Canada that is, that it has followed in the U.S. government and politicians’ footsteps in their shameful subservience to pro-Israel pressure groups. And to add insult to injury, we are talking here about the sleaziest, most fanatic and repulsive group of them, a Ku Klux Klan style group who consider the only good Palestinian is a dead Palestinian; who would say, do and resort to any unethical and immoral means and tactics to further its agenda of supporting, defending and covering for Israel and its abhorrent acts and interests. They are literally a terrorist organization, no different than the worst of them, and the supposedly proud, independent-thinking and ethical Canada allowed itself to be mired, pressured, succumb to that pressure, which is exerted by non other than the infamous JDL, who ought to be banned and chastized, by any self-respecting country, for their racist and hateful mentality and criminal practices. I can’t blame JDL for what they did and do, for they have an agenda to execute, by any possible means, but I blame, shame and feel a sense of moral and ethical betrayal and being let down by the supposed, presumed flagship of democracy, human rights and defender of truth and justice, the land of the not-so-brave-anymore, the U.S. and its protege Canada.

  5. It would seem that the Israelis want to induce censorship in Canada. The Israel criminal acts seem to know no bounds.

  6. Much ado about nothing, Galloway has been to Canada several times and nothing was done but shortly before an election he gets banned. subtlty isn’t a Canadian strongpoint and apparently not one of the JDL’s either.

  7. slick, Isrea is not a member of the Inter-National court, nor signator of the geneva conventions, and claim protection from such, but won’t be governed by such ? ?
    Speak no evil, or else, your with them, or against all Jews?
