Alexandre Trudeau, son of late Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and brother and senior political adviser to Liberal leadership candidate Justin, has been working with the Iranian government to create propaganda to whitewash its nuclear arms program.
TV, the Iranian state-owned propaganda organ, was a co-producer of the
documentary The New Great Game,
which was produced and directed by Alexandre Trudeau. According to Honest Reporting Canada
Executive Director Mike Fegelman, in the film, the Liberal MP's brother "reports
that Iran's atomic ambitions are for "defensive" purposes only,
serving as an effective "deterrent" against Israeli
"aggression" and belligerence."
Today, Trudeau's Press TV associates claimed that al Quada operates on behalf of Israel.
Trudeau's documentary was recently broadcast on the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation, the news division of which has maintained a
long-standing anti-Israel bias. Along with vehemently anti-Israel NDP MP Libby Davies and a coterie of fanatics including the notorious Ali Mallah, Alexandre Trudeau was also
listed as an endorser of the
so called Gaza Freedom March in which Arab and international activists attempted to violently
storm Israel's borders, resulting in a number of people being killed.
participation of Alexandre Trudeau at such a high level of his brother's
campaign suggests that were Justin Trudeau to win his party's nomination, the
Liberal Party of Canada could move to extremist anti-Israel positions.
UPDATE: More support for dictators - see link to Alexandre Trudeau`s fawning 2006 column about Fidel Castro.
UPDATE 2: Trudeau takes a fascinatingly deceitful approach with his documentary.
In Part 2 after raising the idea of the US aiding a preemptive Israeli strike on Iran`s nuclear facilities, Trudeau shows Harvard professor and historian Niall Ferguson asking, `From the vantage point of many Americans the answer must be `no.` Why should we do that, we`ve just done a couple of nasty expensive wars in Afghanistan and in Iraq. What`s in it for us?`
Trudeau abruptly edited the statement there, creating the clear impression that Ferguson opposes such a move when the exact opposite is true. Anyone who knows Ferguson knows he was speaking rhetorically and would have explained that if more were shown. Ferguson wrote a piece for The Daily Beast in which he wrote, `There are plenty of arguments against an Israeli attack on Iran. And all of them are bad.` In that piece, Ferguson explicitly argues for America to support an Israeli strike on Iran.
But under the tutelage of Alexandre Trudeau`s propaganda, people who are uninformed about the matter, as most CBC viewers are likely to be, would come away believing a lie .
