      Friends,

      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
      passport.”

      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?”
