And, in Canada, in the city of Vancouver in the province of British Columbia, national Freedom To Read Week is being celebrated in a very special way. It would appear that the library board, or the chief librarian, has a very special speaking treat in store for Vancouverites. For the library's choice as featured author for this acclaim-for-literature week happens to be a man known as an Anti-Semite of the first order.
Author of countless articles detailing the usual Jewish conspiracy claims, and going even further, to invite his readers to believe that Zionists manufactured al-Qaeda, a mere sub-plot to a larger Jewish plot to subvert the U.S. Constitution, and in the process handily target Muslims for mass murder, ostensibly in revenge for horrific assaults against the West that they were not guilty of; framed by the Jewish conspiracy.
Moreover, this same highly esteemed writer, Greg Felton, has also revealed that Zionists encouraged Nazi Germany to exterminate Europe's Jewish population; in fact aided and assisted in incinerating their brethren. Thereby neatly exonerating all the world's enablers of responsibility in the event and the extent of the Holocaust. Which was, in all likelihood, a shield beyond which the greater drama of Jewish world domination was playing out.
Where, one might ask, would this man be more welcome, more celebrated than in Iran, which also espouses that very same line of incendiary slander? Well, on the face of it, in Vancouver, too. This man's writing appears in the Tehran Times - now isn't that a surprise? - along with other newspapers in the Arab world. Where, just incidentally, not just anyone has the freedom to write what they think; where, just incidentally, press censorship is reality.
And now, this much-published writer can also be seen and heard - live! - in Vancouver. Some ingrates - most likely Jews themselves - have sought to reason with the good people at the Vancouver Public Library who appear to value - despite protests - their public relations coup in bringing the author of "The Host and the Parasite: How Israel's Fifth Column Consumed America", to public appreciation.
The chief librarian, Paul Whitney, claims, loftily, that in the spirit of free discourse and the exchange of ideas, this is merely a matter of "intellectual freedom".
How like the Jews to take things out of context, to make things so personal.
