Dear Readers: I haven't done enough personal research about the horrible van episode that took place in Toronto yesterday for me to make any significant comment except to express my sadness for all those who died or were injured, and my sympathy for their loved ones. "Penny For Your Thoughts" has done a great deal of background research and is asking some questions which you may find very interesting.
Iran: What to do; what to do?
Sometimes some people just want a bomb dropped on Russia's buddy and sometimes some people are just itching to make a buck off them. But if you're Canada's Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland, shouldn't you care a little bit about what the voters might think if you choose the latter?
Not if you're good at blurring the issues sufficiently and distracting them by dissing Russia at the G7, and certainly not if God sends you a convenient van incident.
Canada eyeing meeting with Iranian officials in Ottawa despite controversies
It's all about money; it's always about money. If there is no chance of making some, then making war is an alternative route with the manufacture and sales of weaponry. Minister Freeland, has learned how to demonize and/or weaponize, whichever seems more profitable at a given point in time.
Remember the Iran Contra scandal? Sweet, kindly Ronald Reagan turned out to be a big fat liar and his successor, Bush, issued pardons to the perps.
Meanwhile, Freeland, is heading up a G7 posse against Russia, still borrowing Daffy Duck's "despicable" retort and still blaming Russia for Novichok, as if it were a proven fact.
It's like high school, where one clique gets together over soda pop to diss the outsiders they themselves created - just so that they can feel superior. They're willing to risk a pie in the face just to prove how bad those outsiders are!
What a combination of minds: Chrystia and loose-canon Boris! The G7 bunch have already agreed to badmouth Russia first and foremost. But here's one thing they won't want to discuss: Russia proves Novichok agent patented in US as a chemical weapon — Patent dated Dec 1, 2015
Freeland herself is just naturally bellicose toward Russia. One reason could be that she is half-owner of a property in Kiev -- and nobody seems to think that might be a conflict of interest, not to mention that she never admitted it until she absolutely had to. Before I learned that, I would have thought this article about her 2014 visit to Kiev was out of the goodness of her Liberal heart, but now I wonder if it was to take care of personal biz on her MP expense account.
In 2011, Freeland wrote a very long cheer-leading piece for the Atlantic entitled: The Rise of the New Global Elite who, she admits, are basically smart "hustlers".
She's a big fan of George Soros who uses his hustled dough to foment uprisings - such as in Ukraine, and the riots against Trump.
Along with owning property in Kiev, Freeland and her husband (who works for the NY Times), are bigtime property owners at home and abroad.

Israel - A rogue state Canada seems to be two-timing:
Israel hasn't needed to make nice with any of its neighbours, least of all Iran, because it gets its weapons funding and supplies from the US. But what this new Canada-Iran deal means is that the following is either not true, or that Canada is aiding and abetting Iran in its alleged attacks on Israel. How can this be?
Iran Says It's Ready to Attack Israel at Any Moment
It's well known that Israeli planes attacked Syria as early as March 2017, and as recently as Jan 2018 and Feb. 2018.
Iran, according to the above statement, has threatened Israel with retaliation only. They are clearly saying that Israel must leave Syria - and Iran - alone - or else. This certainly seems to belie the mantra that Israel is a "tiny country surrounded by enemies" - considering that the "enemies" appear to be merely trying to protect themselves against the "tiny country" - like a picknicker fending off a persistent killer bee.
Here's are examples of some of the denizens of that tiny, picked-on country -- certainly not the Jews I was raised to respect. These people give me a sick feeling in my gut. They are the lowest of religious nutter dregs in my estimation. Their God seems to be deaf, blind and mute.

iran is going to face earthquake
Is that last one a suggestion that Israel has the techology to cause earthquakes in a country that has occasionally been subject to them anyway, but had 5 of them in 2017? I do sometimes wonder if heavy bombing can cause earthquakes in the vicinity, but there seem to be some differences of opinion on that.
Or does this whacko think God is causing them in defence of Israel? Either way, it's pretty cold-blooded considering the numbers of innocent people who have died and suffered devastation while Ashkenazi racist, elitist Israelis cheer and wish evil on anybody who doesn't belong to their private club.
(Suddenly I'm noticing the "nazi" in Ashkenazi. In fact, the most rabid settler youth are reminiscent of Hitler's dead-eyed, cold-blooded youth organizations.)
I have a lot of experience with the Christian nutters who have incorporated Israel into their superiority delusion. Jews are going to hell for not worshiping Jesus, but those big (both in girth and in influence) stinking-rich evangelists ("smart hustlers" like Freeland's good friend Soros) don't care because they see a gold mine in Christian theme parks in Israel, because Christians love to visit where Jesus supposedly died and rose again.
Israel doesn't mind all those crazy Christian gentiles because it takes a cut of the profits. (Israel And All That Glitters)
The collusion between the left and Islam is going to bring about the opening of the third and forth seals in quick succession. Change is coming very quickly that will rock this world and all of its ungodly beliefs to the very foundations.
The beginning of sorrows is what the Lord called it, I am sure man will call it many other things. Then, will come the wrath of God. Islam will be the first to fall, then, at the end of the tribulation, the left.
It's a good thing for some calling themselves "Christian" that The Book of Revelation was appended to the New Testament, because commenter "Ryan" could never have revelled in such ugly sentiments if the Man of Peace had not been cancelled out by the ravings of a hallucinator.
All very good ways to keep the mind off the plight of the Palestinians, and in particular, the killing of Ain Media Journalist Yaser Murtaja.(See: Avigdor Lieberman on IDF: Boys will be Boys)
IsraelToday provides an excellent example of "begging the question":
Ain Media is not recognized by whom? Israel alone. International journalists recognize a journalist when they see one. Ain Media in Gaza is fairly young (several years), but has produced many videos and has a sizeable following on YouTube. One of Ain Media's videos had 355,000 views. Considering what that video shows, Ain Media must be a very touchy problem for Israel.
Facebook YouTube Channel
Whether or not Yaser ever used a drone, it's well-documented that he was not using a drone at the time a hot-shot sniper shot him in the abdomen, below his bullet-proof PRESS vest.
IsraelToday is clearly a propaganda site, not at all averse to the crafty placement of words in order to confuse lesser minds. Too bad they are so patently obvious. Israel needs all the help it can get in the cover-up department but none of their screeds can be trusted.
It will be interesting, if somewhat painful, to see the outcome of Freeland & Company doing weapons deals with Iran.
