Meanwhile, Thomas Hubert, the Liberals’ youth leader in British Columbia, resigned his post after it was revealed that he made the following statements in the Comments sections of two Internet blogs:
"The Liberal Party is stronger without these violent Zionists in our party. I am glad for them to cease influencing our foreign policy so we are free to promote Canadian values of peace. It amazes me that this community is so absurdly selfish. The only issue that matters to them is the defence of a ‘state’ that survives on the blood of innocent people. Shameful." (See here.)
"One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. At one point, George Washington was considered a terrorist by the powers that be. History will remember Hezbollah as an organization that stood up to the most vile ‘nation’ in human history." (See here.)
