NDP urged to withdraw from Parliamentary Committee investigating anti-semitism....
Yes, the so-called group, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), are calling for the NDP to withdraw from the Parliamentary Committee investigating anti-semitism.
Just a couple of days after two pro-Israeli students were attacked by a machete in Gatineau, the CJPME has a sent an e-mail to its supporters that says:
In a few weeks, a report will be issued that could be the first step to criminalizing criticism of Israel in Canada. The Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA) is preparing a summary report and recommendations. This report could make criticism of the policies of the State of Israel difficult, perhaps even illegal, by positioning such criticism as a form of anti-Semitism.This is offensive on many levels. First, there is no danger that any speech will be outlawed. They are really worried that more and more people are realizing that events like "Israeli apartheid week" are far more hateful than anything Ann Coulter could ever say. Secondly, where were these people when Coulter was here? Well, these are the very same people who were delighted she was not allowed to speak.
The Bloc Quebecois has already resigned from the CPCCA in protest. We urge everyone who wishes to protect Canadians' freedom of expression, and who believes in justice in the Middle East, to take action below, asking the NDP to also withdraw from this coalition.

Please respond to this action alert, and forward this message to your friends and acquaintances.
Bottom line for these people: Anti-zionist invective is fine. Shut down real hate speech like the words of Ann Coulter. There are no consequences to our continual demonization of Israel. We are not poisoning the environment at our Universities.
