Israeli Army Illegaly recruiting in Canada's High Schools

I was listening to the CBC radio today, morning edition of November first with host Shelagh Rogers. Around 10:40 Shelagh hosted a debate about whether the Canadian military should be given the opportunity to recruit directly in high schools, as any other employer. At one point, one of the guests mentioned that even the Israeli army was recruiting in Canadian high schools through Sar-El.

Two of the guests confirmed being told about that fact by their children. Searching the internet, I found a website which mentioned the fact in 2006, after a CBC television broadcasted a reportage on Sar-El in what seemed to be an uncritical coverage of Sar-El's activities.

Recruiting for a foreign army is illegal in Canada. But Harper's Israel friendly government seems to be ignoring this. Moreover, as a Canadian from a Lebanese origin, I am indignated that my government permits such activities in our high schools for an army which killed a Canadian family of eight from my neighbourhood on the first day of Israel's July agression on Lebanon.

I can't see how a military can recruit in another country people who are not citizens.

Ted,

I think they are recruiting people who have dual citizenship, Israeli and Canadian. Or people who might be eligible to the Israeli citizenship.

French Jews who have the Israeli citizenship serve in the Israeli military. Arno Klarsfeld, who is a lawyer and was special counsel to Nicolas Sarkozy when he was interior minister, fought in the Israeli army and took part in an invasion on Lebanon.

That's very problematic. Israel enjoys privileges in the west not given to any other state. Of course, French serving in the Israeli army, that sounds illegal, but nobody is willing to challenge this.

I had read someplace that Israel was thinking of giving all Jews citizenship no matter what. I don't know how far that has moved along.

Wolfie thank you for the link. If Zionists really have so much power in the USA, then how come these AIPAC officials are being prosecuted for trials?

Am I the only one who thinks all this focus on Zionists conspiracy reminds me of the Germans' obsession with international Jewish conspiracy?
