2. Context For This Piece
An awful lot of people criticize “ISLAMIC” influence in Canadian politics. And there is certainly reason to be worried. Creeping Sharia, prohibitions on criticizing Islam, and cultural practices that are incompatible with the West are being pushed. And there are of course, political movements to eventually take over.
However, what isn’t really discussed is the ZIONIST influence in Canadian politics. It’s there, and it’s just as bad as the push for Islam. Difference is, it’s more subtle, and the media is much more controlled on the subject.

5. Cited: 1248 “Communications Reports”
Going through the communications reports, let’s take a look at who the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs has been meeting with. Here is the list alphabetically. Note: there are a lot of repeats in here.
The list is alphabetical, not chronological.
A few things to point out.
This is a huge number of people being lobbied, and it doesn’t included repeat attempts.
Party leaders such as Justin Trudeau (Liberal), Andrew Scheer (Conservative), Jagmeet Singh (NDP), and Elizabeth May (Green) have all been lobbied as well. So was Gilles Duceppe, former BQ head. This cuts across party lines. Also, it includes — from the previous administration — Stephen Harper, Nigel Wright, Stockwell Day, Jason Kenney, Vic Toews, John Baird and Chuck Strahl.
Tom Mulcair was lobbied when the NDP was official opposition.

Can we drop any pretense that there is nothing wrong with this? This Jewish/Israeli group is lobbying huge numbers of politicians and their staff. They are trying to influence major parts of our government and society.
It’s all parties involved in this, and at all levels. No one’s hands are clean. It is an outright sell out of our country by Zionist shills.
While this is not exhaustive, let’s look at a few initiatives that the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs has been up to
7. CIJA Is Anti-Free Speech
Weren’t people up in arms when Iqra Khalid pushes M103 (the blasphemy motion) through Parliament? This is even worse. Instead of some “non-binding” motion, it would actually criminalize what is considered hate speech.
Of course with this group, criticism of their BEHAVIOUR is often tagged as hate speech. So good luck getting that exception through.
8. CIJA Wants Media Regulation
The CRTC has recently made many recommendations, including forcing those in the media to get licenses. Understandably, the Minister, Steven Guilbeault, and the Federal Government are taking a lot of flak over this.
But something is missing from the discussion. Who’s behind it? Who’s pushing to make it mandatory for people in the media to be licensed. From their own lobbying information, CIJA is advocating for exactly that.
9. CIJA Supports Animal Cruelty
Do you support animal rights, as in the humane treatment of animals? Do you want animals killed for food to be treated without being tortured? Well, stop being a bigot. Kosher is something that CIJA is pushing.
Is it any different than halal food? Not really, but it’s anti-Semitic to criticize it.
10. CIJA Wants Holocaust Memorial
Want to have something burned into your brain for you had absolutely no role in doing? Do you want to feel endless white guilt? Now you can. CIJA wants the Holocaust Memorial to be preserved and protected to constantly remind people that they are victims.
11. CIJA Pressuring Ottawa On Durban II
CIJA is pressuring Canada regarding the Durban II conference, which it views as an attack on Israel itself. That is more than a little hypocritical, considering Israel conducts DNA testing to prove Judaism, and it was upheld as legal by the courts.
12. CIJA Controls Our Government
There will certainly be followups to this article, but know this: CIJA is lobbying politicians in all parties on a variety of topics. Indeed, it is an attack on Canadian sovereignty.
But good luck getting conservatives, or “Conservative Inc.” to address this assault on our country. They have little to no interest in addressing such matters.
13. Double Standard For ADL
Worth a look, as the ADL has the same double standard as CIJA when it comes to diversity and tolerance.
But no objection to forcing OTHERS to become minorities in their lands.
