Canadian politician sues Jewish Groups
Lesley Hughes, who was dumped as a Liberal candidate in a Winnipeg-area electoral district, claims the Canadian Jewish Congress and B'nai Brith Canada made false and defamatory accusations that she is anti-Semitic.
In a lawsuit filed June 16, Hughes alleges that as a result of the actions of the CJC and B'nai Brith, former federal Liberal leader Stephane Dion revoked her candidacy in last September's federal elections.
Hughes is suing the organizations, four of its senior members and Peter Kent, now a federal Cabinet minister who represents a heavily Jewish Toronto-area district.
In her lawsuit Hughes acknowledges that in a 2002 article in a Winnipeg community newspaper, she repeated a variation of the Internet canard that legions of Jews avoided death in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center because the Mossad knew of the attacks in advance.
"Israeli businesses, which had offices in the Towers, vacated the premises a week before the attacks, breaking their lease to do it," she wrote.
Well, Leslie I admire your fortitude, and wish you all the luck in the world, as you will need it - badly. No matter the threats waged against you and your family and friends - please don't settle.
Though, I predict that this will be dropped. It is a 'David and Goliath' struggle which is stacked in favour of the Goliaths - the 'Jewish' organisations - which of course should really be called Zionist, as these radical bastards don't represent all Jews and tend to give Judaism a REALLY bad name.
