BDS Fail: Feds and LCBO lift ban on Israeli wines

After a week-long ban on the sale of two Israeli wines produced in the West Bank — in a style eerily reminiscent of the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement — the Canadian government and LCBO backtracked late Thursday afternoon.

A mealy-mouthed statement from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency — which instituted the ban on the wines imported from Psagot and Shiloh Wineries — claimed they had not fully considered the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement in what they called their “wine labelling assessment.”

    As usual, Sue Ann nails it! The problem is, what the hell do we do with the 5th column that moves among our own community?

    • It appears that was exactly the case here.

      Well, if only we could do for them what we did for Venezuela: let them experience the consequences of their actions. Alas we can not, as we have to live here too.

      As time passes it seems that there may be only one conclusion to be reached.

    Look for the Muslim involvement

    • It seems to be a member of the self-loathing community in this case.
