An idiotic civil servant...
If he believes this stuff...what else does he believe????
Heritage Minister James Moore is investigating allegations someone in his department used a government computer to slag Israel during office hours.
Moore was responding to a report by Sun Media columnist Ezra Levant who identified Monzer Zimmo as the financial and business development adviser to Moore, and a part-time anti-Israel blogger.
“In this one particular case I have asked my deputy minister to do an investigation to find out exactly what went on in office hours and what was said and whether it can be attributed to a particular employee,” Moore said in Vancouver on Tuesday.
“Obviously the comments that had been made online are outrageous and unacceptable and if someone was using work computers to spread that kind of nonsense they should be held accountable.”
Levant reported that someone using the name Monzer Zimmo blogged last week - during office hours and on a Heritage Canada computer - that he was proud to be part of the Gaza flotilla to deliver aid to Palestinians and expressed his support for Hamas, a Palestinian group the Canadian government considers terrorists.
Zimmo denied writing those things from his department desk, and speculated he was being framed by one of the 1,200 bureaucrats in the ministry.
In an entry last year to NDP MP Libby Davis, Zimmo called Israel a rogue state, accused it of piracy and murder, and called B’nai Brith a hate group. Zimmo didn’t deny writing the entry, but said he couldn’t remember if he worked that day.
Zimmo also stands by his view that it’s an open question who was to blame for the 9/11 attacks despite Osama Bin Laden’s repeated claims he masterminded the al Qaida terrorist attack.
