Our tax dollars at work

Canada Free Press reports:

A Canadian taxpayer-funded coalition of 11 major churches and church agencies is holding a series of public forums in Toronto, which call for divesting in Israel, Canada Free Press has learned.

The social justice missioned KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives has received $2.9-million from CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) during the past two years.

KAIROS, which has 25 years of experience in supporting human rights and peace building in the Middle East, states on its literature that "Until a Palestinian state is realized, Israel is an occupying power in the Palestinian Territories and must respect international law as specified in the Fourth Geneva Convention."

Anti-semitic tripe. Another example of why governments should be legally unable to fund special-interest or lobby groups. Let them solicit donations from the people they puport to represent or those who truly care about the cause. Further examples would include EGALE, marijuana advocates, various feminist groups, etc.
