Here is an article about a measure to fight anti-Semitism which is the world's "most enduring of all hatreds." Yes, indeed. This hatred is being manifested on the Internet, which is the only source of information not controlled by Zionists, where Israel is singled out for "selective condemnation and opprobrium." The Harper government, which is an asset of Zionism, not of Canadians, continues to lead the charge in the fight against anti-Semitism and the defence of "Israel". Of course no mention at all is made of the record of the "Jewish State" as the most egregious violator of human rights and promotor of race hatred in history. (Based upon Zionism's 130-year-long war on the Palestinians, Jews, Christians, Muslims and everyone else.) To mention this would be anti-Semitic, of course. So I won't mention it and I hope you won't mention it either. Heaven forbid.

Anti-Semitism fight renewed with ‘Ottawa Protocol’
Stepped-up efforts within Canada and around the world are needed to combat rising antiSemitism, says a freshly penned international declaration designed to stamp out the “most enduring of all hatreds.”
The declaration, known as the Ottawa Protocol, was released Tuesday following a two-day meeting of parliamentarians and experts from about four dozen countries in Ottawa.
“We are alarmed by the explosion of anti-Semitism and hate on the Internet, a medium crucial for the promotion and protection of freedom of expression, freedom of information, and the participation of a civil society,” the declaration said.
A major concern, it says, is the failure of many countries to live up to commitments to maintain reliable statistics about anti-Semitic and other hate crimes.
The Ottawa Protocol builds on one crafted in London in February 2009 at the founding conference of the Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism.
Irwin Cotler, chairman of the international coalition and a noted human rights activist, told a news conference the protocol breaks new ground.
For the first time, it provides detailed definitions of what constitutes anti-Semitism and puts in writing what the group sees as the distinction between anti-Semitism and legitimate criticism of the state of Israel, the Liberal MP said.
“Let it be clear: Criticism of Israel is not anti-Semitic, and saying so is wrong,” the protocol says.
“But singling Israel out for selective condemnation and opprobrium — let alone denying its right to exist or seeking is destruction — is discriminatory and hateful, and not saying so is dishonest.”
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, who attended the London Conference, said the Ottawa meeting, which attracted hundreds of participants, proves the 2009 gathering was not a one-off.
