Monzer Zimmo's Open Letter to pro-Israel Liberal Parliamentarians: "Are you for Israel or for Canada"
Monzer Zimmo is an Arab activist in Ottawa who is relentless in his
monitoring of pro-Israel bias in the Media and keeps an eye on pro-Israeli
activity among Canadian politicians.
He sent this open letter to the group that calls itself "Liberal
Parliamentarians For Israel." He challenges them to speak out against the
Israeli misuse of Canadian passports.
The Liberal Party is not the only one being worked on by the pro-Israeli
groups. This year, the Canadian Jewish Congress has decided to aggressively
pursue the Canadian Left (obviously the NDP) and as an NDPer, I can see the
first results of this lobbying.
Perhaps Monzer Zimmo could send a letter to NDP Parliamentarians as well.
Read and reflect.

Liberal Parliamentarians For Israel:
Earlier today, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) finally caught up
to other news agencies around the world and reported that: Canadian
authorities are investigating reports that a suspected Israeli spy is using
a stolen Canadian passport to travel through Asia. This investigation
involves one of three alleged Israeli Mossad agents convicted by a New
Zealand Court for their foiled attempt to illegally obtain a New Zealand
The CBC further reported that: In 1997, two Mossad agents were caught with
phoney Canadian passports after a bungled assassination attempt of a Hamas
leader in Jordan. As a result, the CBC continued: Canada filed a formal
protest and received assurances from Israel that its agents would never
again use Canadian passports.
Obviously, the Israeli assurances are in question!
In light of the above investigation into the alleged Israeli continued
violation of Canadian sovereignty, would you kindly let me know, at least in
this instance, whether you are For Israel or For Canada?
