Zionist divide-and-conquer no longer works

There is some curious, but predictable, fallout from the election of Stéphane Dion as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada (Dion has bounced the Liberals well above the Conservatives in popularity, and we would see a Liberal majority government if an election were held now).  Tarek Fatah, a somewhat controversial figure who supported Bob Rae, the candidate who finished third, writes (my emphasis in red):

“Another religious group, the Canadian Islamic Congress, organized by Mohamed Elmasry, sent out a mass e-mail to its members with the subject line: ‘More Canadian Muslims than ever before will help determine Liberal Leadership Outcome.’

A religiously observant breakfast was arranged for Muslim delegates to the convention, and one Kennedy delegate organizing among the Muslim community sent out a letter to the country's mosques, asking for Muslims to vote ‘en masse’ for one candidate. The Islamic Congress had given Mr. Kennedy an A grade, while listing other hopefuls on a scale from a B to an F.

This led to a spirited response from Ignatieff delegate Salma Siddiqui, who is a vice-president of the secular Muslim Canadian Congress. ‘Muslims are not a herd of cattle to be sold to the highest bidder,’ she responded.

Then, during the convention, the president of the Canadian Arab Federation, Khaled Mouammar forwarded a mass e-mail to Muslim delegates. The e-mail, with the subject line, ‘Don't elect a Leader who supports Apartheid,’ had a picture of Bob Rae with the following text plastered over his face:
‘Rae's wife is a Vice President of the CJC, a lobby group which supports Israeli apartheid and Israel's illegal Apartheid Wall. . . . Bob Rae supports Israeli Apartheid. Don't elect a leader who supports Apartheid.’

It became a popular refrain. On Friday, a group of delegates coming from a breakfast arranged by the Canadian Islamic Congress taunted me: ‘Is Bob Rae going to be the prime minister of Israel or the prime minister of Canada?’

Two rookie MPs, Omar Alghabra, a Muslim, and, Navdeep Bains, a Sikh, held the strings of as many as 400 delegates in the Kennedy camp. When the time came, these delegates moved as a bloc to Mr. Dion.

Stéphane Dion may not know this, but his victory came in part through a political process that feeds on racial and religious exploitation. I respect the diversity of Canada, but I want to celebrate what unites us, not what divides us into tiny tribes that can be manipulated by leaders who sell us to the highest bidder.”

Bob Rae is certainly entitled to take a strong line of support for racist Apartheid Israel, but he, and those of his ilk, can no longer assume that they will be able to sneak through because of divisions within the Muslim community (Rae must now be thinking that he could have been Prime Minister of Canada had he been able to temper his enthusiasm for Israeli violence against Muslims).  This terrifies the Lobby – the branch office in Toronto, the supervising office in Washington, and the head office in Tel Aviv – as the main weapon of Zionist manipulation has been exploiting the Sunni-Shi’ite divide (we’re seeing this in operation right now with Israeli management of the Saudis to create a Sunni-Jewish alliance against Iran).  The Muslims – and the Sikhs, who had their own separate reasons for disliking Rae – stuck together to defeat an expressly Islamophobic candidate.  United Muslim support was instrumental in getting Dion elected, something he no doubt will take notice of.  Since there are a lot more Muslims than Jews in North America (the ‘demographic problem’ doesn’t only exist in Israel!), Muslim solidarity against Zionist racism must be very disturbing for the Lobby.

The Jewish Billionaires Club is fighting back, the only way it knows how, by using spin and lies.  Its new house organ, the Toronto Star, has bizarrely depicted Muslim solidarity as another example of anti-Semitism (ho-hum; if a neo-Nazi candidate had been running and all the Jewish delegates had refused to vote for him, would the Canadian Jewish Congress call that ‘shameful identity politics’?).  This is just another attempt at confusion by wearing out the ‘anti-Semite’ label, something that Jews are going to regret once that epithet no longer has any meaning.
