Trudeau backs motion condemning boycott Israel movement

Editor’s Note: The Zionists have been handing down orders to their Western lapdogs to ban anti-Israeli boycotting. Canada’s limp-wristed PM Justin Trudeau, who basically campaigned exclusively on the pro-LGBT ticket, has passed a motion which forces the government to “condemn” boycotts of Israel. Technically the motion does not make boycotts illegal, but Britain recently made them illegal and France prosecutes people for it as well.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have joined forces with the official Opposition to overwhelmingly approve a Conservative motion condemning all Canadians who promote the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel.

But not all Liberals are on side.

About a dozen Liberal MPs refused to vote on the motion, which passed by a vote of 229-51; two Liberals voted against it.

Nevertheless, the fact that Trudeau and most Liberals supported it prompted NDP Leader Tom Mulcair to charge that the prime minister is once again aligning himself with the Tories to suppress the civil liberties of advocacy groups.

Mulcair says Trudeau did the same last year when he chose to support the Conservative government’s controversial anti-terrorism legislation, which New Democrats and other critics maintain equates legitimate dissent with terrorism.

The motion calls upon the government to condemn any and all attempts by Canadian groups or individuals to promote the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, which it describes as promoting the “demonization and delegitimization” of Israel.
