Ontario NDP (New Democratic Party) supports campaign against Israel

Related StoriesFirst it was the federal Green Party under Elizabeth May. Now it’s Ontario’s Dippers.

The Ontario NDP under leader Andrea Horwath have included in their literature for this weekend’s conference in Toronto a resolution supporting the hateful Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

The motion, ironically numbered 9-11 and obtained by the Toronto Sun, is hidden in plain sight on page 83 under Justice and Human Rights.

(There are no resolutions under human rights related to Syria or North Korea, or any countries with an ISIS presence or which are arbitrarily killing innocent citizens.)

Put forward by the Niagara Centre provincial riding association, the motion’s authors justify a “boycott (of) Apartheid Israel” because it is already supported by UN special rapporteur Richard Falk, Stephen Hawking, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Desmond Tutu, CUPE and CUPW (among others.)

CUPE local 416 was also a strong supporter of the hateful Queers Against Israel Apartheid (QuAIA) group which infiltrated Toronto’s Gay Pride parade for five years before disbanding in 2014.

The motion follows one that proposes working with social justice groups and U.S state governments to undermine the Trump presidency.

B’nai Brith Canada CEO called it “disgusting” that the Ontario NDP would consider debating an “antisemitic” resolution such as this at its convention, adding that it is “for good reason” both the Canadian and Ontario governments have condemned the discredited Boycott Israel movement.

“If the Ontario NDP were truly interested in standing for social justice, the party should unequivocally support the right of all Israelis to live in peace and security, free from the constant threat of terror,” Michael Mostyn said.

Efforts to reach the conventions’s co-hosts — NDP councillor Mike Layton and school trustee Ausma Malik — to discern whether they supported the motion were unsuccessful.

But in September of 2014, just before Malik was elected, I revealed that she not only participated in a 2006 rally denouncing Israel’s efforts to defend itself against Hezbollah missile fire but called Israel’s “state-sanctioned murder.”

Malik denied supporting “anti-Semitism in any form” at the time.

NDP spokesman Rebecca Elming said the motion did not come to the floor Friday afternoon at all — meaning it was not raised or debated or voted upon.

Asked if it will be raised at another time during the three-day convention, she responded “not likely.”

Delegates at the Green Party’s convention last August in Ottawa voted to support the BDS campaign against Israel — a move which deeply divided the party and which May tried to water down late last year by reiterating support for Israel’s right to exist.
