The Canadian Jewish Congress is embarrassing the Jews


By Ezra Levant on September 19, 2009 12:30 AM | Permalink | Comments (25)



Here's a report in the Canadian Jewish News about the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal's decision to declare the censorship provision of the Canadian Human Rights Act unconstitutional. That newspaper -- which depends financially on the Official Jews -- is showing increasing skepticism about the OJs' decision to double down on a losing hand of censorship. The censors have been losing in the court of public opinion for two years; now they're losing in the courts of law. But Bernie "Burny" Farber doesn't give a damn. He'll go down with the ship -- and take the tattered credibility of organized Canadian Jewry with him.

Some excerpts (I've put some parts in bold):


A human rights tribunal last week ruled that a section of the the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) that imposes quasi-criminal penalties is unconstitutional...

...Canadian Jewish Congress – an intervenor in the case, along with B’nai Brith Canada and Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Center – called for an appeal.

...Congress CEO Bernie Farber said “what the decision has done is confuse everybody.”

...Ezra Levant, author of Shakedown, a critique of human rights commissions, called Hadjis’ decision “enormously significant.”

The issues were thoroughly debated by phalanxes of lawyers and took years to be resolved. “This is a major treatment of the law” decided by the vice-chair of the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) tribunal. Though “not technically binding [on other tribunals], it is effectively binding,” Levant said.

Furthermore, the judgement shows how the temperament of the commission has changed since the Taylor decision. It has become “aggressive and bullying, entrapping people,” Levant said.

The case continued even after Lemire removed the postings in question and agreed to mediation – remedies that were contemplated in the Taylor case.

“They [the CHRC] refused,” Levant said. “They wanted to grind him down.”

Levant was even more blistering in his critique of Jewish community organizations, which he dubbed “the official Jews.”

Congress is making “a strategic error” in calling for an appeal, he said. “You have domino after domino falling” with pressure building in media editorials, legal opinions and even in the commission itself to end Section 13 cases.

“Human rights commissions have been denormalized. They’re laughingstocks,” he said.

Nevertheless, Jewish organizations continue to push for appeals, in effect calling for the censorship of expression. Jews are coming across “as whiners who want to shut you down, not debate you. Is this the image we want to project to 33 million Canadians, that we’re thin-skinned whiners?” Levant asked.
Burny says everyone's confused. But I'm not confused: the law has been declared unconstitional, by the vice-chair of the tribunal, Athanasios Hadjis. What's confusing about that?

We have at least one other sitting tribunal member (Edward Lustig) who wrote earlier this year that he would abide by Hadjis's ruling. And last week, in Calgary, Alberta's censorship law was appealed from a kangaroo court to a real court on constitutional ground. Is there anyone out there who truly thinks the barbaric abuse of the law in that case won't be overturned -- and that it won't mention Hadjis's ruling as persuasive, if not formally binding?

Everyone's running away from censorship -- including Hadjis himself, who just two years ago was a brutal enforcer of it.

But not the fools at the CJC. Not Burny. He's called censorship his "business" before, and he has too much invested in that lucrative business to let it slip away because of some trifle like the Charter of Rights.

If you wanted to create a perfect caricature of a villainous Jew for anti-Semites to point to, you couldn't do better than Burny and the CJC....more >>

Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body. It can be done by governments and private organizations or by individuals who engage in self-censorship. It occurs in a variety of different contexts including speech, books, music, films and other arts, the press, radio, television, and the Internet for a variety of reasons including national security, to control obscenity, child pornography, and hate speech, to protect children, to promote or restrict political or religious views, to prevent slander and libel, and to protect intellectual property. It may or may not be legal. Many countries provide strong protections against censorship by law, but none of these protections are absolute and it is frequently necessary to balance conflicting rights in order to determine what can and cannot be censored.

Jewish Power Is Waning


by Gilad Atzmon / February 1st, 2011


The British ADL watchdog CIF Watch seems to be very unhappy with the Guardian circulating the work of the genius cartoonist Carlos Latuff

“How low will they (the Guardian) go?” asks the Zionist watchdog.

The Judeo-centric site defines Latuff as “one of the most prolific anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic.” It is also outraged with Latuff depicting “Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as a sinister looking (gun wielding) Orthodox Jew.”
