Earlier this year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was confronted by an injured ex-soldier about funding cuts for Canadian veterans. Trudeau’s response to the injured ex-soldier was that veterans were “asking for more than what the federal government can afford.” Most Canadians could not have imagined that a sitting Canadian Prime Minister would display such reprehensible conduct to a Canadian veteran.
Not surprisingly, Prime Minister Trudeau’s stinginess does not apply to jihadists. That is why Trudeau has pledged $38 million to the pro-jihad UNRWA in response to President Trump defunding the organization. This money should have been allocated for injured Canadian veterans returning home. Unfortunately, the plight of Canadian veterans is not a concern to Prime Minister Trudeau. What is important to Trudeau is appeasing Muslim voters.
Prime Minister Trudeau is perhaps the most pro-jihad head of state in the western world. In June of this year, Trudeau pledged $23 million to Islamic groups such as the National Council of Canadian Muslims, despite their ties to jihad groups. In addition, Trudeau has supported the pro-sharia motion M-103, which could make criticism of Islam illegal in Canada. Trudeau authorized the $10 million payout to convicted jihadist Omar Khadr. Trudeau has also approved uncontrollable levels of immigration from pro-jihad Muslim countries. Trudeau has done everything to appease his significant Muslim voting base, at the expense of Canadian interests.
Many conservatives in Canada were terrified when Justin Trudeau was elected Prime Minister of Canada. However, Trudeau has turned out to be worse than most could have imagined. The election of Prime Minister Trudeau will be remembered as one of the most tragic events in Canadian history.
“Canada pledges $38M to UNRWA for sake of regional ‘stability,’” by Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News, October 14, 2018:
The Canadian government announced Friday the addition of CDN 50 million ($38 million) over the next two years to the United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees in reaction to the organization’s plea for help following the American withdrawal of $360 million in funding earlier this year.
“Palestinian refugees are among the poorest and most vulnerable, and it is my mandate to help them,” Minister for International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau stated in Parliament.
Canada’s contribution was for the sake of “stability” in the region, as the children would be in UNRWA schools rather than on the streets, she said.
Rona Ambrose, leader of the Conservative opposition, questioned this reasoning in the legislative chamber.
“It is well-documented that schools run by the United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency within the Palestinian Authority have incited terrorism against Israel,” she said. “The Conservative government rightly cut UNRWA’s funding because we had no assurances about where the money was going…. How can [the prime minister] ensure these dollars will not put Israeli citizens at further risk?
“Or is this just another downpayment of Canadian tax dollars to win him a UN Security Council seat?”
Bibeau said that her office conducted “meaningful oversight and negotiat[ed] an agreement that includes robust control measures” over the donations.
Most of the funds will go towards “meeting the basic education, health and livelihood needs” of Palestinians, specifically “to send hundreds of thousands of children to school, train teachers and support over a hundred health clinics,” she said.
Another $10 million is geared for “emergency life-saving assistance to more than 460,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon,” according to a government statement. It added that some of the money will help UNRWA with “its ongoing efforts to improve neutrality within the agency and its operations.”
In 2016, Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau overturned his predecessor’s decision to cut aid to the organization….
