British MP Calls For Israeli War Crimes Investigation & Halt of UK Arms Trade

Another British MP calling for inquiry into Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Additionally he is calling for a halt to UK arms to Israel. Wonder if Canada, at the behest of their Jewish Lobby, will brand him as a “terrorist” as well.

Pendle MP in call for Gaza inquiry

PENDLE MP Gordon Prentice is calling for an independent inquiry into allegations of war crimes during the Israeli assault on Gaza.

Following the conflict in December and January, Mr Prentice has called for an immediate halt to UK arms exports to Israel.

He said: “What happened in Gaza should concern us all.

“The attack was a wholly disproportionate response to the rockets fired into southern Israel.”

Mr Prentice is supporting the Commons motion tabled by Martin Linton MP last week.

it’s all gathering ground, week by week, the world is coming for you Israel. We won’t forget the genocide you committed in Gaza, you are war criminals and Will be charged as such FINALLY!

Galloway to Sue Kenney & Jewish Lobby Head Bernie Farber

Galloway going to get Jason Kenney and Bernie Farber (head of Canada’s Jewish Lobby who got Kenney to ban George) in court for defamation. If I were Bernie and Jason, I’d pay a visit to youtube and refer to when Galloway took on the US congress. Be afraid, be very afraid LOL

All I can say is GO GEORGE!! The only person with enough “Chutzpah” to take them on. Too bad the American President won’t do the same and defend his own appointments from the Zionists who run American foreign policy and politics. I hope George drags their sorry arses through a long drawn out trial so the world can see how evil they are.

British MP to sue for defamation after being barred from Canada

British MP George Galloway, an outspoken supporter of the Palestinian cause who was barred last month from entering Canada for a speaking tour, says he plans to sue the head of the Canadian Jewish Congress and CTV for defamation.

George Galloway told a cheering crowd in Ottawa he plans to sue some Canadians for defamation over comments made after he was denied entry to Canada. (Canadian Press)

Speaking to an audience in Ottawa through a video internet connection from New York, Galloway said Thursday he will fight for his reputation, but did not say specifically how he had been defamed.

“I have instructed my lawyers in Canada to bring an action for defamation against Bernie Farber, the CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress, and CTV, for comments he made that they allowed him to make,” he said.

“I am not a terrorist. I am not a threat to Canada’s national security.”

He said he will sue if he doesn’t receive an apology, reimbursement for administrative costs and payment for damages.

A spokesman later said Galloway plans similar action against Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.

A spokesman for the immigration minister said the border agency made the decision that Galloway was inadmissible based on the law, not politics.

A Federal Court ruling issued March 30 upheld the CBSA decision to prohibit the MP from visiting Canada.

Supporters of the politician from Scotland — now on a speaking tour of about a dozen U.S. cities — called the decision an affront to free speech that smacked of political interference by the Conservative government.

MP says his audiences are larger now

In his speech by video to hundreds of people who filled a community theatre in Ottawa, Galloway said efforts to ban him from speaking in Canada have backfired spectacularly.

“Far more people have come to these rallies than would otherwise have done,” he said.

Canada May Need Thousands More Customs Officers

I like this take on the Galloway decision. If Canada,(or any country for that matter) is going to start the habit of banning anyone who holds different views in order to censor them, then they better start hiring thousands more Customs officers LOL, Too true!

British MP George Galloway is no more a threat to Canada’s national security than was deported racist Ernst Zundel.

If Canada is going to bar all prominent visitors who are obnoxious, or who spout political views we don’t agree with, then we had better start hiring thousands more customs personnel LINK

Galloway CENSORSHIP Ban Upheld~Thanks to ADL who Control Canada

Well it appears that the ADL of Canada controls the Government in the same way the ADL and AIPAC do in the USA. I find it stunning that a foreign country has this much of a grip on both Canada and the USA. Why should Americans, or Canadians for that matter bother to even vote as Israel is the real power in both countries.NOTE there is an update at the end as this story continues to develop

British MP banned from Canada
12:39pm
Edmonton / iNews880.com
3/30/2009

Controversial British MP George Galloway’s request for an injunction to enter Canada has been denied by a Federal Court judge.

The decision prevents Galloway from appearing in person at an event in Toronto this evening, the first of three scheduled events in Canada.

The federal government has told Galloway he could not enter Canada because he allegedly engaged in terrorist activities.

In a letter to Galloway, the government says the MP delivered humanitarian goods to war-torn Gaza and gave $45,000 to Hamas, which is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.

On Sunday, one of the lawyers who made the injunction bid said Galloway gave money to the head of the government in Gaza, not to the head of Hamas, even though they are the same person.

Organizers of Galloway’s speaking tour have said the Toronto speech, scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, would go ahead – either in person if he wins the court injunction, or via video if he loses.

Don’t belive the Jewish Jobby had anything to do with this decision? See here:

Galloway speech will aid Hamas, group alleges

A Federal Court judge in Toronto has upheld a Canadian travel ban for outspoken British MP and antiwar activist George Galloway.

George Galloway’s planned visit to Canada is not just a speaking junket, but a fundraising tour that would benefit the outlawed terrorist group Hamas, the Canadian wing of the Jewish Defence League alleged yesterday.

The controversial Zionist group cited a press release from Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights, one of Mr. Galloway’s hosts, that said a Montreal event on Wednesday “will aim to raise additional funds for Galloway’s Gaza aid caravan.”

Meir Weinstein, national director of JDL, said he did not know if it was his March 16 letter, citing Mr. Galloway’s own promotional material, that tipped the Conservative government to the visit.

Mr. Weinstein said he is primarily concerned with the fundraising, not the famously bombastic content of Mr. Galloway’s speeches.

He said concerns over free speech made him feel “damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.” But he said he “can’t accept being relegated to second rate status, that we don’t have a right to object.”

“We would oppose him speaking anywhere and we would oppose any apologist or supporter of Hamas,” he said. “But whether or not the government would prevent that, I don’t know. We’re not taking a stand on the issue of free speech here… It’s extremely dangerous what this individual represents.”

Laith Marouf, branches coordinator for Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights in Montreal, said that for the JDL to accuse others of supporting terrorism “is like the pot calling the kettle black.”

He referred to the FBI’s description of JDL as “a violent extremist Jewish organization.” Among other critics, the Southern Poverty Law Center calls it a “hate group,” and denounces its “long history of bombing, assaulting and threatening its perceived enemies.”

JDL’s Canada wing was recently reformed under Mr. Weinstein after a period of inactivity.

Mr. Marouf said Mr. Galloway’s aid caravan brought humanitarian and medical aid to Gaza, and did not support terrorism.

“That is what we are aiming to raise funds for,” Mr. Marouf said, adding that the money would be given as a donation to the British charity Viva Palestina.

This charity, backed by Mr. Galloway, has said it raised around $2-million, largely as a result of public outcry at Israel’s offensive there in January.

I find it rich that the ADL has the audacity to cite “terrorist” activity when people are making charitable donations for humanitarian aid to people who just suffered a holocaust committed by Nazi Israelis. This when the ADL has a legacy of being a terrorist group. They are just terrorists in suits, without balaclavas!

see HERE form the FBI website!

“Investigation by the Los Angeles JTTF revealed that Irving Rubin and Earl Krugel were active members of the Jewish Defense League (JDL), a known violent extremist Jewish Organization. A Cooperating Witness reported statements made by Rubin and Krugel indicating a plan to attack the Islamic Muslim Public Affairs Council (IMPAC) office in Los Angeles or possibly the California office of United States Congressman Darrell Issa. Statements made by Kruger indicated the motivation for the attack was to serve as a “wake up call” to the Muslim Community. Rubin and Krugel were arrested by members of the Los Angeles JTTF for conspiring to build and place an improvised explosive device at the IMPAC office. Irving Rubin committed suicide and Earl Krugel’s charges are pending.”

Who’s the real “terrorists”
So, it appears the Israeli terrorists are allowed to grow and flourish, however, those who want to help collect humanitarian aid for the victims of those terrorists are now considered the terrorists. Yes, perhaps in Bizarro Land.

UPDATED X1

Travel ban upheld for outspoken British MP Galloway
Ruling leaves open the possibility that there could be a full hearing on whether Mr. Galloway can enter Canada at a later date. Barbara Jackman, who represented Mr. Galloway and his supporters, said she was disappointed with the decision.

“The court was asked to do something courageous, to defend free speech,” said Ms. Jackman, who added that she is not aware of any other British MP ever being denied entry to Canada.

She indicated there may be a full hearing at a later date to decide if Mr. Galloway can enter the country in the future.

UPDATE~Galloway Decision and Caravan

Caravan to meet British MP George Galloway at border cancelled

TORONTO – A Federal Court judge will rule today on an injunction asking that British MP George Galloway be allowed into Canada to deliver anti-war speeches.

A caravan of his supporters was scheduled to meet him at the Canada-U.S. border at Lacolle, Que. today in anticipation of the court decision. But because the ruling isn’t expected until about 2 p.m. ET, caravan organizers have decided to cancel the border event.

Organizers of Galloway’s speaking tour say a speech scheduled for 7 p.m. ET in Toronto will go ahead – either in person if he wins the court injunction, or via video if he loses.

Lawyers representing groups trying to bring Galloway to Canada say an injunction should be granted allowing Galloway to enter Canada for four days pending a judicial review.

Galloway is also scheduled to deliver speeches in Mississauga, Ont., Montreal and Ottawa.

Team Galloway~How YOU Can Help

From Team Galloway, how YOU can help:

The scale of the correspondence we’ve received means that it will take some time to respond properly to all who’ve emailed in.

Perhaps Jason Kenney hoped to silence George by banning him from the country. The opposite has happened. Not only has George begun a packed tour of the US, speaking on Palestine and the war, but he is getting coast to coast coverage in Canada itself. Pressure is mounting on the government to reverse its decision.

As George says, “What is happening is a sinister attempt to criminalise efforts to build solidarity for the besieged people of Palestine their right to choose their own government.” It is also a dangerous attack on the principle of free speech.

Below is a step by step guide from Canadian campaigners over how to register your anger at the ban. Please take a couple of moments to email off your response.

The legal challenge to the ban has been submitted and more and more people are booking for the tour dates. Whatever happens, George will be addressing those theatres by one means or another.

We are also asking people to show their support financially. Click this link to donate to the special fund to fight Kenney’s political ban and to support Viva Palestina’s political campaigning work to lift the siege of Gaza. If you’re sick of illiberal, pro-war policies – help fund opposition to them.

Thank you again for your support. Do check out the Viva Palestina site – http://www.vivapalestina.org and George’s own site http://www.georgegalloway.com

With best wishes,

George Galloway campaign team

Don¹t forget to fill out your subject line:

Let Galloway into Canada. Defend free speech.

Step 4:
Cut and paste the message below. Feel free to personalize it with your own words. And don’t forget to include your name at the bottom.

Dear Mr. Kenney:

Your decision to ban British MP George Galloway represents an unprecedented attack on free speech and on civil liberties in Canada.
Regardless of Mr. Galloway’s opinions on the war in Afghanistan or the Middle East, you have no right to silence his views. Canada is now the only country in the world to ban a sitting Member of the British Parliament, someone who has been elected five times and who has no criminal record.

I am demanding that you reverse this decision immediately and make provisions to guarantee Mr. Galloway’s entry into Canada. In addition, I am demanding that you cease immediately any further attacks on free speech and civil liberties in Canada.

I look forward to your prompt reply.

Sincerely,

Step 5: Press send!
