Ontario NDP Runs A Jew-Hater; Who Speaks For Hamilton’s Jews?

“Jewish state in Palestine… is a central organization for their international world swindle”

Now an NDP candidate, in 2021 Sarah Jama told an anti-Zionist protest, ”Hamilton Police protects Naziism” and other fringe conspiracy theories. One commenter noted, “If that were a white male he would be removed from the public space immediately, with statements of shock and horror from city hall. Parallels to Nazi Germany would be spread in the media.” Instead, she’s on the ballot Thursday in Hamilton Centre . (Screencap: @antisemitismCA Twitter)

In 2021, a university Communist loudmouth named Sarah Jama told a Toronto protest that “Hamilton police protect Nazism in our city and continue to target Black Muslims and Palestinians.” It wasn’t just any protest, mind you- it was affiliated with Samidoun, the notorious PFLP terrorist friendly group in Canada that we’ve reported on again and again and again.

Naturally in that kind of company, she proceeded to claim “Israel is illegitimate … because the same people (in control) will continue to fund the killing of people here, locally, and globally.” 

“It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindle…” 

In other words, Sarah Jama said Israel somehow pays for the killing of Canadians identified with the usual ‘oppressed’ narratives, and the Jews who run Israel operate a criminal syndicate.

That same year she sent out a bizarre tweet, lecturing CIJA that the Jewish advocacy agency could not express sympathies about the London Muslim family that were attacked until they say “Free Palestine.”

In today’s Ontario political landscape, that makes her a solid candidate for the NDP to put in front of voters in Thursday’s by-election. And that isn’t all. A few of her other choice opinions, for some reason… were erased from view.

While losing 9 seats and having their tuchus handed to them by Doug Ford and his Conservative government in the June election, the Ontario NDP also drew less of the popular vote than the third-place Liberals; as a result, leader Andrea Horwath vacated her role and the seat in Hamilton Centre became open. Jana quickly slid herself into position to become an MPP in the traditionally NDP seat, in a sudden convenient political conversion.

Toronto Sun columnist Brian Lilley noted: “Less than a year ago, Jama was denouncing Horwath for praising police efforts to keep a Scarborough elementary school safe after a man was spotted near the location with a gun. As the Special Investigations Unit report into the incident found, police arrived and called on the man to drop the gun; instead, he pointed it at them and they fired, killing him.”

Then there’s this radical tweet, which Jama deleted: “Police in Ontario have a record of arbitrarily killing babies, Black, Indigenous, racialized, disabled civilians (many of whom are Muslim) & those who are in crisis.” 

You’d think an NDP candidate in the former leader’s riding calling Ontario police “baby killers” would have some explaining to do. But as Lilley revealed, “due to a social media purge, the size and depth of which I have never seen for a single candidate, Jama and the NDP are trying to keep her radical side from voters.”

Lilley concluded, “They deserve to know the whole story before casting their ballots because Jama’s record would show she isn’t fit for public office.”

The mainstream media, as usual, avoided dealing with the antisemitism and general far-left lunacy of the disabled black lesbian Muslim communist-turned-New Democrat who also once tweeted “why are straight cis men such trash?” Instead, they don’t ask questions about her advocacy for “building a better world where everyone can thrive free of ableism, racism (including anti-Black racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism, anti-immigrant racism), sexism, xenophobia, poverty, homophobia, transphobia, climate injustice, and all forms of oppression.”

Stepping into the breach,  much of the late-campaign heat generated on the NDP- including provincial leader Marit Stiles and federal leader Jagmeet Singh who campaigned for Jama – came from Jewish activists online.

Jama saying that “police in Ontario have a record of arbitrarily killing babies” creates actual danger for Jewish Canadians” asserted AntisemitismCA on Twitter.

“She is telling people who may have grievances with Hamilton police that the Zionists are responsible… Jama has meticulously scrubbed her social media of such content; including a post where she announced the boycott of a Canadian-Jewish CEO of a disability advocacy NGO (the CEO has no history of publicly “defending the Israeli occupation”… 

“Is the @OntarioNDP in on the cover-up? Did they willingly nominate someone who propagated antisemitism on social media, and then help her to hide the evidence?”

The thread concluded, “These conspiratorial, antisemitic blood libels have no place in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. If @OntarioNDP sticks with Jama this will be a stark warning to Canadian Jews.”

For his part, Jewish activist Michael Teper drew attention to this urgency in a tweet directed at the Hamilton Jewish Federation. 

“You guys need to weigh in. Sarah Jama doesn’t just support BDS.  She supports 2nd and 3rd degree boycotts against Canadian organizations, simply because the CEO may personally support Israel.”

More information about Jama’s career in Marxist radicalism was compiled by Canary Mission. One wonders if anyone at the Hamilton Federation ever bothered to look at it.

The Federation, widely lauded for ‘talking the talk’ with their highly-regarded #nomoreantisemitism conference last November, failed to ‘walk the walk’ when it came to defending the Jewish community from the poisonous injection of Jama’s Jew-hating bile into the NDP. I could not locate a single comment from the HJF or CEO Gustavo Rymberg decrying Jama’s nomination, or holding the Ontario NDP to account for embracing an inflammatory anti-Israel antisemitic “progressive” candidate. 

AS WE WENT TO PRESS – well, at least SOMEONE spoke up for the community before the vote: 

Toronto (March 15, 2023) – Today, Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) met with recently elected Ontario NDP leader Marit Stiles for a frank discussion on antisemitism linked to her party’s candidate in tomorrow’s Hamilton Centre byelection, Sarah Jama… FSWC President and CEO Michael Levitt said, “Claims by the NDP that it stands against antisemitism must be more than just words. The decision by both Stiles and Jama to stay silent publicly on these important issues is deafening and sends a clear message to the Jewish community.”
