Why Is Justin Trudeau Giving $50 MILLION Of Our Taxpayer Dollars To The Palestinians?

Why Is Justin Trudeau Giving $50 MILLION Of Our Taxpayer Dollars To The Palestinians?

Fix things in Canada first.

Justin Trudeau’s international virtue-signalling continues at the expense of Canadian taxpayers.
Trudeau is giving $50 million of our taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians.

According to the Globe & Mail, $12.65 million will go to the Palestinians through the United Nations and other ‘international organizations,’ while most of the rest will go towards other NGOs who will disperse the money.

Some of the money will “help young female Palestinians build businesses,” and “address gender-based barriers to entrepreneurship.”

Of course, the question most Canadians are asking is this: Why should any of that be funded with money taken away from Canadian taxpayers?

After all, this is our money, this is the money earned and created by Canadians, and then forcibly taken away by the government. It should be going towards helping Canadian citizens and fixing some of the serious problems we have in our country, instead of being sent to other nations.

Additionally, a key reason so many Palestinians are struggling is because their so-called ‘government’ is more interested in spending money on rockets to attack Israel, instead of actually addressing the needs of their people. The Palestinian government should be stepping up and dealing with the real needs of their people – it’s not the job of Canada’s taxpayers.
Making this even more crazy, is the fact that a Canadian-Palestinian doctor – Tarek Loubani – “met with Indigenous Affairs Minister Jane Philpott on Monday to discuss the project – the latest in a series of meetings in his effort to get all of the federal political parties on board.”
The “project” is solar panels on hospitals in Gaza.'

First of all, why the hell would the Canadian Indigenous Affairs Minister be involved in that? Considering the fact that many reserves in Canada are in third-world conditions, you would think that the Indigenous Affairs Minister would be focused on what’s happening here at home.
And secondly, what do solar panels in hospitals in Gaza have to do with Canadian taxpayers?


So, why is Trudeau doing this? Because he’ll score some virtue-signalling points and get to pretend he’s doing his dream job of running the United Nations.

The fact that he’s taking more and more of our money, sending it outside our country, and failing to deal with Canada’s real problems obviously doesn’t matter to him.

While Trudeau will never listen, Canadians must begin pushing back against the idea of taxpayer-funded foreign aid, demanding leaders in all parties pledge to keep our taxpayer dollars focused on Canada.

The Secret Reason Arabs Reject the Jewish Nation-State Law

The Secret Reason Arabs Reject the Jewish Nation-State Law

  • Some Israeli Arab leaders speak disparagingly about Israel for publicity. They know that no newspaper would ever mention them if they were dealing with issues such as sewage or a shortage of classrooms in Arab schools. If they say something bad about Israel or provoke the Jews, however, they will certainly receive a headline in the press.
  • Israeli Arab leaders can incite against Israel as much as they wish. Their slander will not change the reality that Israel is the only thriving democracy in the Middle East, and treats its minorities with respect. While minorities are being persecuted and murdered in Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq, Libya and other Arab and Islamic countries, the Arab citizens of Israel are being integrated into the state. They hold high positions in the Supreme Court, the Foreign Ministry, the health sector and even the Israel Police. The majority of the Arabs in Israel can work anywhere they wish, they can travel anywhere in the country, and they will continue to enjoy all the privileges, benefits and freedoms that Jewish citizens do.
  • Some Israeli Arab leaders want Israel to give up its wish to be a Jewish homeland because they are hoping that one day Jews will become a minority in their own country. For far too long, they have been inciting their constituents against Israel and Jews. If these leaders are so unhappy in Israel, perhaps they would consider moving to Ramallah or the Gaza Strip or any Arab country. Perhaps they would care to resign from the Knesset. Why do they refrain from doing so? Because it is in the Jewish homeland, supposedly so harmful to them, that they and their children can live and thrive.
Zouheir Bahloul, an Arab Member of Knesset, is the last Arab citizen of Israel who is entitled to complain about discrimination. For decades, he was one of Israel's most popular sports journalists, revered by Arabs and Jews alike. He has always enjoyed a comfortable life in Israel -- one he could never have dreamed of experiencing in any Arab country. (Photo: Knesset Spokesperson)
The hypocrisy of the leaders of the Arab citizens of Israel, who are now crying foul over the new Jewish Nation-State Law, has, in the past few days, reached new heights.
These are the same leaders whose words and actions for the past two decades have caused serious damage to relations between Jews and Arabs in Israel, and to the interests of their own constituents, the Arab citizens of Israel.
Israeli Arab leaders, specifically the Knesset members, say they are outraged not only because the law defines Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, but also because the new legislation does not include the phrase "full equality of rights for all citizens."


Eye on Iran: Trump Says He Is Willing to Talk to Iran's Leader Without Preconditions

View our videos on YouTube


U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he would be willing to meet Iran's leader without preconditions to discuss how to improve ties after he pulled the United States out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, saying, "If they want to meet, we'll meet."

Iran's currency traded at a fresh record-low of 119,000 to the dollar on Tuesday, a loss of nearly two-thirds of its value since the start of the year as US sanctions loom. 

Russia cannot compel Iranian forces to quit Syria, Moscow's ambassador to Tel Aviv said on Monday, rebuffing Israel's long-standing demand that it should work to ensure their total withdrawal from the country.


For a very long time, the governments of Europe have tended to downplay the threat posed to their own national security and to the stability of the world as a whole by the Islamic Republic of Iran. The overriding trend in Western strategies toward that country has involved misguided negotiations, often rising to the level of outright appeasement. Yet each instance of reaching out to so-called moderates like current Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has ultimately reminded the world of Tehran's unwavering commitment to belligerence and the principles of Islamic extremism.

In early July, Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi was arrested and charged with acting as a foreign agent and conspiracy to commit murder following his alleged involvement in a failed bomb plot targeting a gathering of Iranian opposition groups in Paris. This thwarted terror attack, the latest in a long Iranian pattern of murdering its detractors, is symptomatic of the regime's expansive global agenda and highlights Iran's singular status as the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism. A successful response to this latest example of Iranian aggression must go beyond this incident, as Iran's effort to export its anti-Western, anti-U.S. Khomeinist ideology of terror is truly a global undertaking. 


Iranian officials reacted skeptically on Tuesday to President Donald Trump's comments that he's willing to negotiate with his Iranian counterpart, saying instead that if Trump wants talks, he needs to rejoin the international nuclear deal he unilaterally pulled out of earlier this year.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday the U.S. withdrawal from a nuclear deal was "illegal" and it was up to Europe to preserve the landmark accord with Tehran.


Iran's currency plummeted to a record low Monday, a week before the United States restores sanctions lifted under the unraveling nuclear deal, giving rise to fears of prolonged economic suffering and further civil unrest. 

Iran's Revolutionary Guards, in unusually pointed language, called on President Hassan Rouhani to do more to prop up the rial after the currency fell to a historic low this week in anticipation of renewed U.S. sanctions. 

The German sportswear company Adidas is the latest European business to pull out of Iran's increasingly volatile market due to pending US sanctions on the mullah regime in Tehran. 

An Iranian trade official said that Tehran is looking for potential solutions to maintain trade with Africa by bartering oil products for gold, Press TV reported on Monday. 

President Trump said Monday that he'd meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with "no preconditions," and after meetings with Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin this was probably only a matter of time. Mr. Trump has preternatural confidence in his negotiating ability-and every other ability. But give Mr. Trump credit for noticing at the same time that Iran's regime is "having a hard time right now," for which he can take some credit. 


Iran has begun mass production of a long-range air-to-air missile. And if it looks familiar, it should. The Fakour 90 is Tehran's knockoff of the U.S. AIM-54 Phoenix missile, once the prime weapon of the U.S. Navy's F-14 Tomcat fighter. 


An Iranian news agency says railway workers protesting unpaid salaries in northwestern Iran have received pledges of assistance from local authorities but no apparent timeline for getting their wages.  


When Iran threatens war with the U.S., it's not necessarily talking about war in the conventional sense. But where Tehran can cause damage is an escalation of activities that's likely to send further ripples across regional conflicts and oil markets.


Donald Trump has said he would "certainly meet" Iranian president Hassan Rouhani without preconditions, a move that was later rejected by Trump's own administration and one of Rouhani's advisers. 

Tensions between Tehran and Washington are building as new sanctions approach on August 6, the first set since the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal... This doesn't mean war is imminent between Tehran and Washington. The Trump administration's strategy still centers on economic pressure, rather than military measures. And Iran's leadership is nothing if not the master of snappy responses to threats from Washington, which offer a welcome distraction from mounting economic pressures at home.

Turns out that when Donald Trump recently warned Iran's president on Twitter that more threats against the United States would bring "CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE," it was just the first part of his message. The second was, essentially, "AND IF YOU'D RATHER TALK, I'D LOVE TO!"


President Donald Trump's comment that he's willing to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with no preconditions shows diplomatic over-confidence, a Democratic lawmaker on the House Armed Services Committee said Monday.


North Korea has constructed two new buildings at a missile facility in the northern suburbs of Pyongyang and appears to be actively continuing production there, according to an analysis of newly available commercial satellite imagery, the latest sign of continued progress in the country's nuclear and missile program. The satellite imagery, which was captured on Sunday by San Francisco-based imagery provider Planet Labs Inc. and analyzed by experts at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, Calif., shows two buildings-believed to be an administrative building and a museum-newly erected at the site.


The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria plans talks with Iran, Russia and Turkey in September to start finalizing the composition of the body intended to draft a new Syrian constitution, a statement said on Tuesday.  

While the intelligence community still thinks the probability of war initiated by Hezbollah is low, the main concern is that local events in Syria or Lebanon will trigger an escalation

Although Lebanon held its parliamentary elections in early May, the prime minister designate, Saad Hariri, has yet to form a new government. That's not surprising since the country is at a crossroads and clashing agendas and ambitions were always certain to delay what was never an easy process... It will take considerable time for a new government to see the light of day. Yet time is not a luxury Lebanon has in a severe economic crisis. Mr Hariri is walking a tightrope to get his government right. 

Russia wants to use the gains it made in Syria as a bargaining chip with the US on Ukraine and the economic sanctions.


Forty years after revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini described the Iranian Senate as a "stupid" entity, certain political figures are saying that such a chamber now is a "necessity" for the country. Prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Senate was part of the political structure of Iran. But the new constitution written by the revolutionaries abolished it and introduced unicameral government.


One of the West's key allies in the Middle East has called on the U.S. and Europe to resolve their differences over Iran. Speaking at the Policy Exchange think-tank in London last week, the UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs Anwar Gargash voiced concern about the split between the U.S. and European governments over how to deal with Tehran.

Yemen's Houthi rebels are still arming themselves with ballistic missiles and drones that "show characteristics similar" to Iranian-made weapons, a report by a UN panel of experts has found. In a confidential report to the Security Council, a copy of which was seen by AFP on Monday, the panel said it "continues to believe" that short-range ballistic missiles and other weaponry were transferred from Iran to Yemen after an arms embargo was imposed in 2015.


A senior Iranian Kurdish official warned that Tehran is planning extensive attacks on Iranian Kurdish parties amid economic turmoil, electricity cuts, and protests inside Iran. Loghman H. Ahmedi, a senior member of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan's (PDKI) leadership, told Kurdistan 24 on Monday that Iran is worried about domestic problems posing an existential threat to the "regime," and is looking to divert attention from its internal issues by attacking Kurds.
