Liberals: Wasting your money to promote “social cohesion” in Lebanon

How Canada is fighting Daesh with friendship

“ZAHLE, LEBANON—Far from the front lines of the battle against Daesh in Iraq and Syria, a Canadian-funded initiative to counter the jihadist group in the Middle East is quietly playing out deep in the rugged countryside of Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

So quietly, some experts question whether its impact is even measurable.”

That sounds like a very typical Liberal “plan”, maybe Sophie could sing them a song.

    When you read “daesh” in any paper, the author is a lefty poseur asshole. They’re muslims.

    Yes, but if it works it will be longer before Canada has to rescue all the “Canadians”trapped due to war.

      That’s what they are doing.
      I remember reading years ago about all the Lebanese “refugees” who picked up dual Canadian citizenship in the 1980’s and 1990’s and then move back and forth at their convenience between the two places.
      I bet there is a tie in to that scam.

    Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley is where they grow all of their hash and opium and has been one of the most violent places on earth for the last 45-years or so.
    That place was always terribly violent unless it was ruled by a single warlord or a military junta.
    It’s like trying to bring ‘social cohesion’ to Nuevo Laredo or Juarez Mexico. The place never had any to begin with, but to actually pull it off, you would have to kill half the population while terrorizing whoever was left.
    Not exactly your typical Canadian thing to get involved in.

    Helping save locals from appearing in beheading videos by offering a foreign alternative.

    Yeah. These “social cohesion” programs are working wonders in the UK. They haven’t had a terror attack in over a month.

  • Alain

    Social cohesion flies out the window the moment Muslims enter the room.

    • Editor

      You’re being too hard. If you bend the knee, finance their schools and mosques, pay your jizya in the form of subsidized housing, medical care and welfare, turn a blind eye to all manner of offensive cultural practices and habits, let them slowly infiltrate local, provincial and federal politics and have your airhead Prime Minister give them snow suits in a photo op, they can pretend to be quite “cohesive” for a week or two.
