Goin' Postal for the Sake of 'Union' Solidarity

The head of Canada's postal union urges his workers to get behind the global BDS scheme to eliminate Israel help downtrodden Palestinians:
March 30, 2011 is the Global BDS Day of Action on Land Day, in solidarity with the Palestinian people’s right to self determination, freedom, and dignity.

The Palestinian Land Day commemorates the day in 1976 when Israeli military forces shot and killed six young Palestinian citizens of Israel. They were among thousands protesting the government’s expropriation of Palestinian land to build new Jewish-only settlements and expand existing ones. Today, Land Day symbolizes Palestinian resistance to the ongoing occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.

At the April 2008 CUPW National Convention, delegates overwhelmingly supported a resolution calling for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel until the occupation is ended, international law is abided by, and all citizens are treated equally.

CUPW is working to implement this resolution. We have worked out a partnership with a Palestinian trade union. We are supporting educational workshops and solidarity delegations.

So far they have held two seminars...
A Palestinian trade union. The one and only, no doubt. As opposed to the plethora of unions you'll find in despised Israel.

Man, these union folks are as bone ignorant as they are blatantly hateful.

Update: A song for union boss Denis (pronounced "Den-ee" 'cuz it's French).

Give me a ticket for a Gaza boat.
Ain't got time to grab a warm coat.
BDS is nigh,
Part of the Big Lie.
Den-ee he wrote 'em a letter.

He don't care how many Jews in unions there.
Got to save Arabs from their despair.
BDS is nigh,
Part of the Big Lie.
Den-ee he wrote 'em a letter.

Well, he wrote them a letter
Said we gotta help out
Folks in Palestine.
Mister tell me can't you see
They want the Jewish landscape
To be Judenrein.
Are you blind?

Give me a ticket for a Gaza boat.
Ain't got time to grab a warm coat.
BDS is nigh,
Part of the Big Lie.
Den-ee he wrote 'em a letter.

On your list 'of note' side bar, you do not have Small Dead Animals listed. Are you serious?

This post speaks for itself regarding the incredible anti-Israel odium on the Left, including their labor branch . . . so, instead of commenting on it, I would like to inject a minor--but cheerful--antithetical note: My favorite francophone singer, Mireille Mathieu, is slated to perform in Israel (where, I was surprised to learn, she has many fans), in Tel Aviv, on Nov 22 of this year.

As Mireille is openly and devoutly Catholic, perhaps Chief Rabbi Metzger can hold an interfaith dialogue with her during her visit. I have a feeling that he will find a conversation about religion with Mimi a somewhat more pleasant experience than he would have had with the representatives of the "religion of peace."
