Are Green Party’s proposed foreign policy resolutions anti-semitic?

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Is the Green Party promoting anti-Semitism with new party resolutions that have been put forward for their upcoming party convention?

The Ottawa convention is set for August 5th to 7th and proposed resolutions include supporting the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israeli goods, scholars and doctors – even though leader Elizabeth May says that it’s party policy to reject BDS.

The BDS movement is veiled as a human rights issue concerning Palestinians but those who oppose it believe it’s a new form of anti-Semitism and vandalizing Israeli products is a crime.

But this resolution isn’t where anti-Israel proposals end for the Green Party. There’s also a proposed resolution revoking charitable status for the Jewish National Fund of Canada, one of the most successful environmental charities in the world.

This past February, CPC MP Tony Clement brought forward a motion condemning the BDS movement. It passed in a 229-51 vote which Elizabeth May didn’t participate in and although she has stated she doesn’t support the movement, she publicly opposed the motion under the premise that it’s an attack on free speech but that argument is invalid.

Then there was former Green Party president, Paul Estrin, forced to resign over a blog post about Gaza on the party’s website that made pro-Israel comments.

May also once supported a party resolution condemning what was termed “illegal” Israeli settlements even after expressing support for Israel and publicly stating that the party supports Israel’s right to exist and condemns anti-Semitism.

Israel is the only country in the Middle East with a Green Party and the only democratic country in the Middle East. Yet these resolutions put forth by the Green Party are the only foreign policy resolutions to be promoted at the convention.

The “factual errors” within the JNF resolution could easily be construed as anti-Israel rhetoric. After all, when compared with the BDS movement itself, using misinformation as a thin veil for anti-Semitism is the mode of operation.

Under May, the greens are merely a subsidiary of the Liebranos. Their position on Israel reflects perfectly the unstated beliefs of Lieberals!

Bill Smith, thanks for the clear, concise, cogent (and non-ranting) analysis. Very well done. Uh huh. Our local Green Party candidate , during the last election, tried telling me the Green Party isn’t left wing. Then he let slip the old “speaking truth to power” canard. As the Monty Python line said, “Oh! What a give away”. I said I prefer speaking to truth to stupidity.

This is not news. Feminists and the Green Party are Pro-Palestine. That is a politically safe way of being anti-Semitic. Again, it is totally consistent. The Regressive Left are against free speech and against freedom of choice. Conversely, Israel is the only real democracy in the Middle East. It’s the only place ensuring religious freedom. Freedom is anathema to the Regressive Left. It makes more sense to boycott the Green Party.

NORAHG Response


In Europe, Green Party is a violent Jew-hating pro-Muslim extreme-radical left-wing lunatic-terrorist party. Is this what Elizabeth May is aspiring to ?!?! Is this the kind of nation that we want to live in ?!?! According to observers, the Green Party is becoming more and more Anti-Semitic. Go to the following Rebel link for more details about GREEN PARTY IN EUROPE


We express our total and utter contempt against Green-Lunatics, like Elizabeth May, who conspire to impose their deviant and subversive life-style choices upon our society. Green Party, and its reckless Jew-hating and pesticide-hating fanatics, serve NO possible and NO useful purpose to society. May they roast in hell for all of the suffering they will inflict upon the Jewish community ! May they roast in hell for all of the suffering they have inflicted upon decent and law-abiding people who desperately depend upon pest control products that are safe and effective and that will cause NO harm !

Keep in mind that Lizzie the Cat Lady has no doubt that the Mossad was behind 9/11.

How do we know this?

Three years ago, she introduced parliamentary business concerning the validity of the 9/11 Report. Following that, a whole wack of material related to possible evidence that defied the Report’s findings.

Lizzie claimed that this business was introduced because of a petition she received from “thousands of Canadians” that the matter be brought before the House.

9/11 conspiracies actually get a hearing in the House thanks to Lizzie.

I think I will visit my friendly neighborhood Costco and pick up some Sabra Hummus. Also, I have just changed my mind about my yearly donation to Wikipedia (special thanks to Mr. Wales for enlightening me on his Brexit views), I think my donation to the Calgary Jewish Federation just gained $50. More to come.

I enjoy how The Rebel headlines posed as questions are rhetorical. I can see Mrs. Green, herself, asking if it is a trick question; because the Greens are, of course, fashionably anti-Semitic.

Many people underestimate the the dangers of BDS and are quick to dismiss it, but it is dangerous… here’s why:
I attended a BDS conference and saw with my own eyes and heard with my own ears.. BDS is purposely ambiguous. When asked how far their aspirations should reach, they were told point blank, “go as far as you heart tells you”.. they said that they do not condone violence, but “if that’s where your hearts take you, we cannot criticize you”.
BDS looks like a pyramid. At the bottom, there are well meaning but naive people who are frustrated with the situation in the Middle East, and they feel that doing something is better than nothing… even if they are misinformed, they are generally well meaning…. at the top of the pyramid, there are those who want all Jews dead (all over the world), and a complete destruction of Israel.. not only the areas that are disputed, but the entire nation… on this pyramid, there are several layers on the scale, each one getting progressively more extreme.
When BDS is allowed to proliferate in Canada and other places, the base of the pyramid grows wider and thus pyramid gets taller. The layer that above the naive layer, the bigoted layer grows.. that layer above that, the hateful but non violent layer grows.. the layer above that, the hateful but accepting of violence grows, etc…..
Of course the pyramid concept can be applied to almost any movement, and if the movement is right or wrong, it does not matter.. the key is to look at the top level and to see if it is violent and criminal… For example, anti-NDP movement… it is right and correct, but the bottom level of the pyramid are regular people who support a free market.. and at the top.. very worst case scenario, are people who might use Nortey’s effigy as a golf target… nothing criminal.. so no reason to ban the anti-NDP movement.. it is benign. However, no matter what your opinion is on the Middle East, BDS should be banned… if you support BDS, you might never become hateful or violent, but you are supporting a movement that inevitably does. .. and if one thinks that they can jump on the BDS wagon for now, and if things go bad, they will jump off, they’ll be sorely mistaken… It’s like Germany in WW2, one thinks that they will support a strong Germany but jump off at the point of becoming non-democratic, or jumping off after Czech invasion, or jump of after Poland invasion, etc… nope, sorry, it does not work that way… at some time there is a point of no return.. a snowball effect that cannot be stopped… BDS, if left to proliferate, can very easily reach a point of no return and it doesn’t matter if you change your mind in the future, the genie will be out of the bottle… the only way to prevent this is to stop BDS whenever and wherever it is found. The stakes are too high and it leads to no good.
