Post 50--Is Prime Minister Trudeau Funding Hamas?
I may have reminded you of this before, but do you remember that during the last Federal election the Conservative Party of Canada kept repeating that Trudeau was not ready for being Canada's Prime Minister? I full agreed with that, for I had seen no sign whatsoever that he was ready. Too young and too inexperienced in politics. Just cute and belonging to a famous political family.
Well, since his election he has undone so many measures that the Conservatives put in place for the security of both Canada and the world. Don't get me wrong. I am often aghast at what Conservatives say or do as well. Too many Canadian politicians of whatever party are just that: politicians, not stateswomen or men. Trudeau has shown himself just one of that crowd and, because of his high position, he stands out as just another politician. Apart from his initial composition of the Cabinet--gender equality and wide racial representation--I have seen little positive from him. Oh, he looks cute when he poses in the midst of young people and all that, but when it comes to serious decisions, he seems to have no standard of any kind.
So, I am sharing with you a news item from The Rebel, an alternative news source that mainline journalists despise. Though I enjoy reading the Vancouver Sun, I am aware it is mainline and often ignores events that do not pass their test for "responsible news." I have noticed for years, for example, that they never report on the annual MissionsFest, a large Christian event held in the very heart of Vancouver that draws some 30-35,000 people every time, including high school students who do not drink or do drugs. Now that's a miracle of its own that the press ignores. Recently there was a large Christian gathering in Vancouver that was totally ignored also, except that they made a lot of noise about Franklin Graham. So, I am fully aware of the selective nature of mainline media.
Here then The Rebel:
Hamas is the Palestinian version of ISIS.
Besides being Islamic extremists, and calling for death to all Jews in their charter, Hamas routinely launches rockets into Israel, firing them from hospitals and schools, using Palestinian citizens as human shields.
This practice clearly violates international law.
But Hamas doesn't break international law all on its own. They work with a UN organization called UNRWA to hide these rockets.
UNRWA runs the schools and hospitals that Hamas attacks from. They have also provided textbooks to children that promote the murder of Israelis.
Because of such horrific actions, Prime Minister Stephen Harper decided to stop providing funding for UNRWA — they were simply too closely tied to Hamas.
(The Harper Conservatives still helped fund other Palestinian relief agencies, just not UNRWA.)
But Justin Trudeau has decided to start helping Hamas again and reinstate UNRWA funding.
Now, thanks to documents obtained by The Rebel, we have proof that the Liberals knew their decision to reinstate UNRWA funding with Canadian tax dollars could be diverted to terrorism.
Watch my video, orclick hereto see the documents we've obtained.
UNRWA may have been a good cause when it started back in the 1940s, but it has become corrupted.
If you agree that Justin Trudeau should not fund UNRWA with Canadian tax dollars, then please go towww.StopHelpingHamas.comand sign our petition.
