  • Freakinoldguy: And the Trudeau gov't keeps rolling right along into the next election. The only people they haven't offended yet are the Muslims. But, given their track record I expect that to change before we get to the polls.
  • BeaverFever: So if you read the article you would see that the ceremony was planned by Canadian and Ukrainian Jewish groups in cooperation with the Ukrainian government to help memorialize a Jewish Ukrainian graveyard. The Canadian government was simply an attendee.

    The monument to the alleged Nazi collaborators was a compromise those Jewish groups made with the Ukrainian government.
  • Thanos: Bad sign of how things in Ukraine are right now for Jews if they have to compromise on recognition for a bunch of fucking that were auxiliary to the goddamn . :evil:
  • herbie: Walked into the kitchen at a niece's wedding to hear my brother in laws relatives from Poland berating him "You let your daughter marry a Jew?"
    I know my jaw dropped, my drink almost went with it. Europeans are way more prejudiced than we are. I know, I was married to a Scot and her family considered me half-white.

    BTW she didn't marry a Jew, he was some weird Christian sect that kept some Jewish traditions and dietary laws.

    And you obviously missed this part.

    The Canadian Forces and Global Affairs Canada are facing criticism after honouring members of Ukrainian organizations that helped the Nazis in the Second World War.

    Canada’s Ambassador to Ukraine Roman Waschuk spoke at an Aug. 21 ceremony that unveiled a monument in Sambir to honour members of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), two groups that are linked to the killing of tens of thousands of Jews and Poles.

    The event has been condemned by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre and the Ukrainian Jewish Committee who warn the memorial whitewashes the role of Ukrainian collaborators in the Holocaust.

    “All Jews of Sambir were murdered by Nazis and their collaborators from OUN and UPA,” Eduard Dolinsky, director-general of the Ukrainian Jewish Committee based in Kiev, told Postmedia.


    So, to be quite honest I could give a shit about which Jews went to ceremony with the Ukranians and fostered this disgrace because Foreign Affairs Canadian in it's attempt to get positive press went with open arms to a ceremony that was mired in controversy from the day it was conceived.

    They should have been much more politically sensitive and declined the offer to participate because now, they've managed to piss off not only the Jews of organizations like the Simon Wiesenthal Center but a bunch of Canadians in the process.
