Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., Feb. 07, 2007
(1) Canadian Citizenship: In a news release dated 24Jan2007, Andrew
Telegdi announced a
“campaign to stop the unjust stripping of Canadians' citizenship due to
discriminatory citizenship legislation”.
Canadians are urged to visit his website at http://www.telegdi.org/ to send a letter and/or a petition to the Prime Minister of Canada on the issue. The recent passport boondoggle indicates that the citizenship of hundreds of thousands of Canadians is at risk.
Denaturalization and Deportation: Two articles by Gloria Galloway in the Toronto
Globe and Mail dated
26 and 30Jan2007 indicate that Bernie Farber of the Canadian Jewish
has inveigled the Armenian, Rwanda and Roma (Gypsy) communities to
call for the deportation of six so-called Nazi war criminals. These are
archived at the Furman/Skomatchuk link of my website at
Of some 103 comments to these articles posted by the Globe and Mail, that of Michael Kulyk best sums up the issue.
The 30Jan2007 issue of e-Poshta contains a blistering commentary on the issue by Paulette MacQuarrie to the Ukrainian community. She suggests as to what should be done and elaborates further on her delightful blog at http://nashholos.blogspot.com/ . Marsha Skrypuch wrote letters to Babikian Aris of the Armenian National Committee of Canada and to the Globe and Mail. They do not appear to be archived on her blog or website at http://www.calla.com/ .
On 12Jan2007, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine overrode President
Viktor Yushchenko's veto on the law on the "Cabinet of Ministers".
The vote was 366 - 0; Party of Regions (185), BYUT (121), Socialists
Communists (21), Independents (8); Nasha Ukraina (walked out). Thus
will have full control of appointment of all ministers, including
Yushchenko becomes a figurehead, unless his appeal to the Constitutional Court is upheld.
On Saturday, 13Jan2007 Yulia Tymoshenko left with a 30-person retinue for a 4 day visit to Israel, where she visited a Greek Orthodox church in Jerusalem, Tveria in Jordan, Bethlehem, Yad Vashem and met with Speaker Dahlia Itzyk, Simon Perez, Bilamin ben Eliezer, Benjamin Netanyahu and Anotoli Shcharansky. She appears to have attained a promise from the Israeli Knesset to recognize the Holodomor as genocide.
In her Inform Newsletter of 22Jan2007, Yulia Tymoshenko authors an article titled “Moscow’s Mideast Myopia”, which appears to approve of the economic sanctions imposed on Iran and implicitly provides moral support to the warmongers in the United States and Israel, who are demanding military (and, perhaps, even nuclear) attacks upon Iran. My critique is archived at
war mongering against Iran is
increasing in intensity. With Canadian troops, tanks and military
Afghanistan and Canadian navy corvettes protecting American aircraft
in the Persian Gulf, Canada appears to be well positioned to
participate in the
(4) Conference on “Holocaust in Ukraine”: According to AUR#811 of 04Feb2007 such a conference is being organized by various Holocaust organizations for Paris, France on 01-03Oct2007.
AUR#805 of 15Jan2007, editor Morgan Williams notes that in
several articles referring to various genocides throughout the world
Ukrainian Holodomor of 1932-33 is never mentioned. AUR#811 refers to
ongoing controversy as to whether the Holdomor constitutes a genocide.
