CBC : Calls for NDP MP to resign after Israel comments
Star : Libby Davies in hot water for anti-Israel comments
What a complete load of bollocks.
We expect this kind of shoving to the front of the line to defend Israel from imaginary threats from Harper but what's your excuse, Bob Rae? Rae :
To deny the state of Israel's right to existExcept she didn't.
and to propose an international campaign of boycotts, divestments and sanctions against a legitimate member of the world community for over 60 yearsAnd she didn't do that either.
Bob, don't you at least have staff who can do a modicum of research for you into what Libby Davies actually said before you try to outsteve Steve on Israel? Your behavior actually proves her point made in the vid below that people are afraid to even discuss this for fear of being branded anti-Semitic.
That she should be required to apologise for this at all, much less be threatened with being fired, is, to turn Rae's own words against Libby back on him :
to reveal a level of hostility and ignorance that is truly breathtakingWatch it for yourself ...
Layton defended Libby on Power Play tonight and she stood beside him in the House today. Good because the NDP have not shown much courage on the issue of Palestine.
Libby Davies has nothing to apologise for.
