We know that Israel allows people of all nations and faiths to tour the Temple Mount area in Jerusalem. We know that the Muslims do not allow anyone who is not Islamic to enter the al-Aqsa Mosque.
We know that Israeli hospitals are among the best in the world, and that they even treat the surviving suicide bombers who kill and maim their own citizens. We know that the hospitals of Palestine do not give Jews the same treatment. In fact, Jews are not allowed in the Gaza Strip at all.
But, even though we know there are facts, and that these two things I just mentioned are facts, the Canadian government sees no problem in hiring people who would dispute such facts to help run a Dept. of the government involved with Muslim relations.
The person in question here is a woman named Crystal Procyshen. Here is a sample of her prose:
If East Jerusalem comesunder full Israeli control, the Palestinians cannot pray at the Temple Mount or Holy Sepulchre. As well, the best Arab hospitals and jobs would be lost-destroying Palestinian lives and livelihood. After July 30, when a bomb by two Hamas suicide bombers exploded in a Jewish market, millions or surviving Palestinians suffered when Israeli closures were imposed. I could feel the effects of the ongoing injustices of the occupation now amplified by this evil violence that ordinary Palestinians do not condone.
As I have, we know the facts, but Crystal Procyshen does not know, or will not acknowledge the facts. But, that does not preclude her from serving her government ignorantly.
