This has now happened three times, with moderators at CBC.ca blocking my fact-based comments about Israel.

First, in pointing out the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef’s comment about Gentiles existing to serve Jews, on an article about his passing. In that case, I actually provided a link to my sources, whereas someone else’s comment without a source, got through.

Then, my comment about Israel’s internet task force to combat “hate” was blocked.

And now, my comment on Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling on Jewish racism in Israel.

Ontario towns and cities, desperate for funds in these challenging economic times, are considering casinos in an effort to raise revenues, instead of doing less disruptive things like issuing municipal bonds to employees in lieu of pay increases, as has been suggested by John Turmel, whom I have previously interviewed.

With the vote by Woolwich Township council for the community to be considered by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation to host a casino, by being bribed with some of its own taxpayer money, neighbouring Waterloo City Council has sought input through emails, phone calls and an online survey, and I have registered my sentiments:

We shouldn’t be bribed and pitted against each other in our respective communities with our own taxpayer money by our provincial government’s Lottery and Gaming Corporation. If a private consortium wishes to build a casino, then by all means, so long as it pays for all increased social services costs through a fee levied on every gambler.
