nobel prize for anti-americanism

Who knew that standing in front of a moving bulldozer while protecting the home of a terrorist could get you nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize?

As a member of the House of Commons of Canada, and as the International Human Rights advocate for the New Democratic Party of Canada, it is my pleasure to nominate the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) for the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize...

...Although this nomination is for the ISM as a whole, three young individuals merit particular recognition for the courage and resolve they displayed in their acts of non-violent civil disobedience in defence of peace and human rights in the Palestinian Occupied Territories.

These individuals are Brian Avery and Tom Hurndall, who miraculously survived sniper shots to the head by Israeli forces while they were defending Palestinian civilians from Israeli troops, and Rachel Corrie, who was crushed to death by an Israeli Defence Force bulldozer while attempting to prevent the demolition of the home of an innocent Palestinian family.

Sincerely yours,

Svend J Robinson, MP

Yes, the Hamas-loving, American flag-burning Rachel Corrie, whose much heralded death tale could have been written by Jayson Blair himself, there were so many fabrications.

Rachel Corrie. Arafat. Jimmy Carter. Koffi Annan. Nelson Mandela.

Birds of a feather.

What the hell kind of a name is "Svend"?

Past tense of "Sven" (maybe)?

That's very flattering...


Hey, I need to talk to you tonight if at all possible.

"New Democrats": that's a laugh!

For those who don't know and probably don't care, the NDP is Canada's socialist party, who've got a snowball's chance in hell of ever forming a government up here in the Great White North.

Svend Robinson is one of their chief troublemakers, who was the NDP's International Affairs critic until he broke party ranks and blamed Israel solely for the Israeli/Palestine issue rather than taking the "blame everyone in the region equally" tack that his political party was taking at the time.

He loves media attention and loves baiting rednecks into commenting on his openly gay lifestyle so he turn around and scream "fascist" at the top of his lungs...

Ignore him. We do.

Most of the nominations for the Nobel peace prize this year are a bit of a joke, not least Blair and Bush picking one up for actually waging war.

At least that one shows there's a certain degree of irony surrounding the whole thing, what with Jimmy Carter actually winning it last year for his attempts to stop war in Iraq.

As a Canadian, I am appalled and dismayed that we have such idiots running around trying to run our country.

No, sorry, I'm not. Still, this is the NDP, which actually managed to get in office here in Ontario some years back. They caused so much damage that the backlash was to elect the Progressive Conservatives. The regular rules for adjectives in political party names apply:)

Right, so the IDF says that Rachel Corrie's death was completely unrelated to the fact they were driving a bulldozer at her at the time and you say 'Hah, I knew it was all a lie'. There's undoubtedly been plenty of dodgy reporting as there always is, but basically the fact that the IDF killed Corrie with a bulldozer is not disputed by anyone.

Also, I note that you seem to have misspelled the word 'pharmacist' as 'terrorist' in your opening sentence. No doubt this is an honest mistake rather than a slanderous lie.
