Canada Erases Israel

STRUGGLING TO REMAIN AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF ANTI-SEMITISM, Canada is issuing, or, rather, re-issuing, politically correct passports for its Israel born Jewish citizens:

Canadian Jews born in Jerusalem are having their passports recalled in order to erase the word "Israel" from beside the name of the Jewish State's capital.

B'nai Brith of Canada has filed an application for judicial review of the Government's policy to deny Canadian citizens born in Jerusalem the right to have Israel noted in their passports as their country of birth.

Though the request was filed on behalf of a 17-year-old Torontonian, many others have now been affected by the Canadian policy as well. In recent months, scores of Canadian Jews have been contacted by Canadian Passport Office officials and told to surrender their passports showing Jerusalem, Israel as the country of birth.

I can hardly wait for the new-old maps of "Palestine" to start showing up in Canadian textbooks and other "official" maps. It really is only a matter of time. Canada, always avant-garde, n'cest pas?

Of course, if Israel would only make French their official language, all this merde Canadian would vanish c'est soir-la. Oui? Bonne chance.

      Thanks for the info, Mr. Van der Leun, but one small compaint.

      The words "Anti Semitism" should never be used, except when quoting others.  This is because they are a German euphemism invented to make a certain phenomenon sound more respectable.

      The original, and accurate name of that phenomenon is "Jew Hatred."

Canada clearly knows that Jerusalem is not an Israeli city. It, it, it belongs, well, jeepers, it belongs to EVERYBODY! Everybody knows that! Those dirty Israelis stole it from, well, they stole it from Arabs! Who had made it a WORLD city that belonged to whom? To EVERYBODY!

Wake up, people, and smell the frankincense!

Jerusalem is not in Israel, West Jerusalem is. East Jerusalem is Palestinian. So anoyone born "in Jerusalem" can be born in Israel OR in Palestine.
The status of Jerusalem can't be fixed as long as the peace negotiations have not been finalized. Meanwhile, the capital of Israel is Tel Aviv. That's what we call International Law. That's why it's the same in the USA: people born in Jerusalem can't write Israel on their pasport.
