"Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
I think I'll go eat worms! ..."
The quote is from a children's song from at least 70 years ago. Eating worms was a euphemism for scab-picking self-pity.
Now, the Conservatives are singing it on the Hill.
Wow! Conservative leader Andrew Scheer's colleagues have managed to conflate the issue of Christian camp funding with "vicious" "anti-Semitic", "Jew-hating" criticism of Israel -- while putting down Trudeau for not expressing similar sentiments -- effectively providing a boost to Scheer's chances of winning the next federal election, and all inspired by a simple, re-tweeted worm-eating tweet from Senator Linda Frum.
A truly devious, self-serving, yet impressively gymnastic use of grey matter!

One has to look really hard, though, to see any relevance to the Christian summer camp funding controversy in Senator Frum's passionate protest against an unconnected Muslim group.
Okay, the Christian camps were also recipients of funding during the past 4 years, despite attempting to undermine their own country's Human Rights code. That definitely should never have happened, not to mention that, by all rights, they should be investigated for child abuse.
But how did we get to Israel here? Israel is not mentioned in, nor is at all relevant to Canada's Human Rights Code. (It is, however, expected to abide by the United Nations' codes of behaviour, though it rudely thumbs its nose at the very suggestion.)
Ah, the light dawns: the fundies who hate freedom for women are avid supporters of carte blanche for Israel. Is that politics, or is that politics!
Well, I can only go by what the media have shown the Muslim man saying, which was a call for the eradication of the "State of Israel". If we're going to play politics here (gee, this is fun) that's not at all the same as hating all Jews and wanting to kill them.
And, while real soldiers are often brought home in "body bags", rest assured, it can't happen when the "enemy" is just a bunch of human protesters with no access to deadly weapons. What the man is saying is that the Israeli soldiers are cowardly, using deadly weapons against unarmed civilians.
He did not "call for" Israeli soldiers to be brought home in "body bags" as the caption on one of the photos erroneously (deliberately?) stated. It should be noted also that there were Jewish supporters in the audience as the man spoke.
The State of Israel makes no discernible effort to play nice. Their front line comes across as racist bullies, while still ready to play the sulking victim, figuratively eating worms. Nice work if you can get it, but don't expect bystanders not to be a bit shocked at the psychopathy of it all.
Neither moral nor International law seems to mean anything to The State of Israel:
Call me anti-Semite and toss me in jail if you like, but I fully agree that Israel, just as South Africa in the days of Apartheid, should not exist in its present form.
Israel commits and incites violence on a 24-hour basis against human beings who just happen to be descended from people who lived on lands coveted by cold-blooded atheist Zionists, long before the days of Hitler.
It's pretty childish when Israel and friends can't tolerate even a frown without foot-stamping and cries of being picked on by "anti-Semites". But as former Israeli Minister Shulamit Aloni acknowledged [YouTube], "Its a trick; we always use it".
There wouldn't have had to be any "Islamic Humanitarian Service" if Israel and its Western Evangelical partners in crime had not had such a powerful thirst for Islamic blood with which to wash down the worms of pernicious self-pity and religious/racial superiority.
Out of the mouths of babes, in a silly little children's ditty, the truth is made plain:
