Muslim Canadian Congress endorses NDP

Canada: This is a helluva protest vote. I doubt most Muslims will follow the endorsement, they are not a monolith group, this is just one of the main Muslim groups up there. But in the end, it all comes down to the Jews.

UN Resolutions on Middle East "Paul Martin's recent decision to vote alongside the US on UN General Assembly resolutions on Palsetine, demonstrates the fact that he is turning Canada into a satellite of the US," said Tarek Fatah, communications director of the MCC. For decades Canada had been voting alongside the rest of the world in asking Israel to withdraw from the Arab lands it has occupied since 1967. This month, in a slap to face of Muslim Canadians, the Liberal government of Paul Martin abandoned Canada's principled historic stand, and abstained from voting on a resolution urging Israeli withdrawal from territory it has occupied illegally since the 1967 war. The Liberals also reversed Canada on two more resolutions of routine support for U.N. organs working on behalf of Palestinian rights. On both, only eight countries were opposed - Australia, Canada, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the United States. "This shameful abandoning of Canada's historic role in the Middle East and the arrogant disregard of the interests of Canada's Muslims, should serve a notice to all those who cherish our country's sovereignty and independence: Paul Martin should not be rewarded for mimicking George Bush's foreign policy," said Tarek Fatah. "Muslim Canadians should think twice before offering their traditional unconditional support to the Liberal Party. They should instead consider voting for the NDP that has stood in solidarity with them in their hour of need," he added.
