Anti-war groups align with Hamas, Hezbollah

Black U.S. leader denied entry to Zionist Occupied Canada ZOC

The group Black Youth Taking Action, which had invited the Washington, D.C.-based lawyer to speak, suggested anti-black racism was behind his problem entering Canada.

"The idea that someone can pick and choose who can speak to the black community is ridiculous," group president Nkem Anizor told a news conference at which Shabazz had been scheduled to speak.

"Slavery is over. We're not on a plantation."

Critics accuse Shabazz of being a Jew-hating racist, but Anizor called him a brilliant lawyer and organizer who can offer guidance to badly disenfranchised black youth.

She blamed the Jewish lobby for preventing his entry into Canada, saying Jews wield disproportionate political clout.

"They don't have the highest population but they have the highest influence," Anizor said.

That kind of rhetoric alarmed Jewish groups, who urged that Shabazz, an admitted anti-Zionist, be kept out of the country.

"He's an unrepentant anti-Semite," said Bernie Farber, CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress.

OTTAWA -- Canadian activists who attended a controversial conference in Cairo are calling on anti-war campaigners to show increased solidarity with Middle Eastern resistance movements, including Hezbollah and Hamas.

The focus of the conference was to encourage an international alliance against "imperialism The participants included representatives -- some quite senior -- of four Islamist groups listed as terrorist organizations by the Canadian government, including Hamas and Hezbollah.


The brief French romance with Israel in the middle 1950s was not, therefore, inspired — certainly not initially — by pro- Israel sentiment. It was the coldly calculated result of the anti-French revolt in Algeria and of backing for it in the Arab world, especially on the part of Gamel Abdul Nasser's Egypt, which was then the spearhead of pan-Arab nationalism and was engaged in nationalizing the Suez Canal — and it reached its high point in the Anglo-French-Israeli attack on Egypt in 1956. By 1958, when Charles De Gaulle came to power and began the French disengagement from Algeria, it was over. De Gaulle returned French foreign policy to its pro-Arab course and even revived its traditional Quai d'Orsay anti-Semitism in his notorious post-anti-1967 remarks about the "domineering" Jewish people.


“Judeocentrism” – A New Slur?


I have also written positively about the history of Jewish-Muslim relations in the Balkans, with the enthusiastic approval of Balkan Muslim leaders, since the American Jewish leadership played a major role in saving Bosnia-Hercegovina and Kosovo from aggression. But in the Preporod article, “Judeocentric” was linked to the new vocabulary of prejudice in America, which seeks to present neoconservatives as a Zionist cabal that has seized control of American foreign policy. In truth, the neoconservatives were prominent among those responsible for preventing the whole Bosnian Muslim community from ending up in a mass grave or as refugees. But some Bosnian Muslims seem to have short memories, or none.
