A Serious Man

Amir Khadir. I suppose, one day, if they throw shoes at him, he’ll know where they were launched from. Like a hit the dummy contest at a country tombola. Part George Galloway, part warm up act in the generic comic school of political hacktivism, its hard to take seriously a kind of flirty left-wing extremism that rubs shoulders with fascism while proclaiming the high moral ground and sense of superiority. But then there is really no rational explanation other than it it gets press coverage: throwing shoes at cut-outs of Bush and Quebec premier Charest and saying on t.v that as an MNA( Minister of National Assembly)  he can’t piss on the side of the highway anymore with impunity. Khadir is looking for that golden vein in the cult if celebrity, a sandy shot with east access to a mic. Likely a closet demagogue.

—On Tuesday, it emerged that Mr. Khadir’s sense of decorum is uneven, to say the least. While shoes are a no-no, a poster depicting Liberal Premier Jean Charest dead and half-naked and Mr. Khadir standing over him, musket in hand, is perfectly fine — rather hilarious, in fact.
Mr. Khadir acknowledged that the image, an adaptation of Eugène Delacroix’s 1830 painting Liberty Leading the People, has been on display in his home for nearly two years. Conceived by the anti-police, anarchist — and until Tuesday, deservedly unknown — musical group Mise en demeure, the poster is a “very funny” parody, Mr. Khadir told reporters in Quebec City.—Read More:http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/06/12/graeme-hamilton-solidaire-mna-should-distance-himself-from-poster-depicting-him-shooting-charest/

(see link at end)…Québec solidaire leader Amir Khadir is making no apologies for asking clients to boycott a family-owned shoe store in his own riding because it sells shoes made in Israel.

“Just because a business is in my riding, I am not going to abandon my principles,” Khadir, member of the National Assembly for Mercier, told The Gazette on Friday.

Khadir participated in a demonstration last Saturday in front of Le Marcheur shoe store on St. Denis St. at Duluth Ave., handing out flyers asking customers to boycott the store until it stopped selling Israeli-made shoes.

The demonstration was organized by Palestinian and Jewish Unity, a Montreal-based human rights group that advocates for the right of Palestinians to live in safety.

Khadir said he was asked to join the demonstration by PAJU members, and that he has participated in other PAJU demonstrations, in front of Chapters bookstore, for example, and the Israeli consulate….

—While Amir Khadir was not present Friday his wife, Nima Machouf, was there with a few dozen supporters.
Machouf acknowledged reporters Friday but didn’t speak to them. She had told media a day earlier that she was worried her daughter’s arrest came with the territory when one was involved in such a “resistance.”
Amir Khadir has been one of the most outspoken critics of Bill 78 and the clan’s downtown Montreal home has a sign on the front balcony that reads: “When injustice becomes the law, resistance becomes a duty.” Read More:http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/06/08/amir-khadir-yalda-machouf-khadir_n_1582158.html photo: Montreal Gazette

PAJU has been holding regular pickets outside the Le Marcheur store since early October, because the store sells Beautifeel shoes, a brand made in Israel.Read More:http://vladtepesblog.com/?p=28371

And its too bad Khadir is such a loose cannon and fear-mongering demagogue. A mullah of the secular far left. Too bad he has time to kill on Israel and absolutely nothing to show regarding intestinal fortitude on supporting the

en Revolution in Iran in which the instigators and proponents are either half dead in prison or ensconced within the pearly gates. Evidently Gabriel has only visited his riding. Too bad, because Quebec Solidaire and Francoise David posit a decent image and some profound values that reflect well on the character of Quebec. She deserves better.


Both QS and the PQ want sovereignty for Quebec, Khadir said. The main difference is that “We don’t think it’s something that has to be carried out by … ethnically-defined French Canadian people. It’s a social project that could be the project of all people living in Quebec. For us belonging to Quebec has nothing to do with race or origins, it’s a question of choice.”

Even federalists, especially those who believe in social justice, democracy and ecology, could vote QS, if only to send the Liberals into opposition for some “cleanup.”

Khadir never answered the businesswoman’s question about Bill 101, the French language charter, being applied to businesses of 10 employees or more, however. The QS platform does call for it, though QS would not apply Bill 101 to CEGEPs. He couldn’t say how QS would seek to remedy feelings of angst and rejection within the English community either, after being “demonized” for so long by sovereignists. He had never thought about it before, he said.

(see link at end)…Mr. Khadir is fighting back because the attacks have become utterly vicious. In a radio interview with Benoît Dutrizac, the journalist railed against Mr. Khadir without any pretense of respect, treating him like trash and demanding that Khadir call off the PAJU dogs.
Khadir defended himself saying he has no control over the group, but Dutrizac reminded him that his father was front and center demonstrating, to which Khadir answered that he was “not his father’s keeper” What fun! At the end of the interview, Dutrizac actually tells Khadir that he hopes the demonstrators get attacked.Read More:http://nodogsoranglophones.blogspot.ca/2011/01/amir-khadir-being-destroyed-by-shoe.html
