Liberal Party apparatchik and former Palestine House President Eliaz Hazineh is in a bit of hot water following his public call for the murder of Israeli Jews last week.
So, in the tradition of the contemporary Liberal Party, he's is predictably trying to squirm his way out trouble by lying.
According to the Toronto Star, Hazineh claims his words were taken out of context.
I was at his speech and the context was clear and explicit; he wants all Jews out of Israel, including the pre-1967 borders, or he wants them to be killed. There is no other logical way of interpreting "we have been negotiating with them for 65 years. We say, ‘Get out or you are dead.’ We give them two minutes and then we start shooting, and that’s the only way they’ll understand.”
Sixtty-five years ago was 1948, the year the modern State of Israel came into existence. The initial round of negotiations to which Hazineh referred was the attack of the armies of Arab nations that tried to "drive the Jews into the sea." Though unsuccessful in that and subsequent attempts, that dream has not gone away for Hazineh and the other al Quds fanatics who dream of the death of every Jew in Israel.
"From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free" is the chant they routinely wail at such protests.
A slogan repeated by the genocidal maniac Hassan Nassrallah last week, the flags of whose terror organization, Hezbollah, were held high by Toronto al Quds demonstrators while Elias Hazineh delivered a similar message.
Israel is the freest country in the Middle East, the only one with equal rights for women and gays and where no one is persecuted for their religious beliefs.
So when they say "free" what they mean is "free of Jews."
Hazineh was a close consort and employee of the former long-time Liberal MP Carolyn Parrish. He was the president of a Palestine advocacy organization called Palestine House that lost its federal funding because of its support for extremism. That organization proclaimed how unfair then Citizenship Minister Jason Kenney was in depriving them of funds. Hazineh, whose rhetoric is typical of that inside the doors of Palestine House, showed them for what they are; murderous-minded fanatics.
The man who tried to incite the murder of Israel Jews is also close with one of Justin Trudeau's advisers. The same Justin Trudeau who thinks that Canada should engage more with the genocidal mullahs in Iran. The same Justin Trudeau whose senior policy adviser, his brother, partnered with that murderous regime to make a propaganda film.
While Hazineh is an obviously despicable individual, what is of more concern is how people like him will be influencing public policy if Justin Trudeau should ever reach a position of power.
