Canada: Federal NDP candidate in Nova Scotia ousted for comments comparing Israel to Nazi Germany

At the speed Israel is killing I wonder if they’re aiming higher than 6 million #Palestinians ? #Gaza is the new #Auschwitz and #Israeli the gatekeepers!’
OTTAWA — The federal NDP has ejected its candidate in a Halifax-area riding over comments she made last year on social media comparing Israel to Nazi Germany.


Rana Zaman, a social activist and Muslim who has spoken publicly about fighting Islamophobia, won the NDP nomination in Dartmouth-Cole Harbour in early May. She was ousted last week after several tweets surfaced from last spring in which she condemned the killing of Palestinians by Israeli forces during protests in Gaza.
“Unfortunately, due to language in social posts that was unacceptable, the candidate for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour has been removed as the NDP candidate,” said NDP national director Melissa Bruno in a statement. “We expect our candidates to engage on important issues respectfully.”
The riding, currently represented by Liberal MP Darren Fisher, has seesawed between the Liberals and the NDP for the past three decades. Bruno said the NDP is setting up a new nomination process.
In a series of tweets posted between June 2 and June 4, 2018, Zaman voiced her outrage at the shooting of Palestinian protesters. “If Israel is so advanced then why can’t they avoid shooting defenceless paramedics and journalists, unless they’re killing innocent people deliberately!” she wrote on June 3. “Israel’s injustice and arrogance can no longer be defended and people are are wise to Israel’s tired old rhetoric.”

She later accused Israel of committing genocide against Palestinians. “Thousands of Israelis came into Palestine and were welcomed when the world turned them away,” she wrote on June 4. “Where’s your heart?”
