I imagine Winnie was behind this one, finally getting vengence for all the times we've been erased from world maps!


New Zealand’s immigration website deleted a fact sheet about Palestine from its website after it caused outrage for identifying Israel as Palestine on a map.
The government website published the map as part of a fact sheet about Palestinian immigrants in New Zealand, showing Israel highlighted in blue and marked as ‘Palestine’. The West Bank is not included in the highlighted area.

The Israel Institute of New Zealand called on the immigration minister to “immediately apologize for the offending image and confirm that it does not reflect government policy.” It also called for an investigation.
The institute’s director, Ashley Church, described the map as “incredibly offensive and the equivalent of New Zealand Immigration displaying a map of the UK which removed Scotland and Wales and referred to the entirety of the British Isles as England,” the Jewish News reports.


The map notes East Jerusaleum as the “designated capital” of the Palestinian state, which the Institute took issue with. The document also refers to the “massive repression of Palestinians” caused by Israel during the Second Intifada, and points to Israel’s economic sanctions and blockade on Gaza.
Ironically, New Zealand is a country that’s often left off maps. Ikea was forced to apologize in February after it sold a mapthat was missing New Zealand. The tourism board even launched a #GetNZontheMap campaign last year, featuring Prime Minister Jacinda Arden.

There's so little to do in New Zealand apparently the Prime Minister herself draws, writes, and publishes all government documents herself

So when not out in the fields with sheep this is what the Kiwis get up too. Don’t think it matters, to be honest.

The same people who sponsor them all over the world, an army of lightweights strategically placed where they are useful. George Soros is one of the sponsors, if you need names.
And i thought we had already plumbed the depths of your credulous conspiracy theorizing mind. Apparently i was mistaken on that count..

Oh, I didn't mean she gets a cheque from George every week, I couldn't be sure of that. What I mean is that people like her and other luvvies around the world are carried to the top through an international network of academic and social institutions funded by people like George. When you go and look at the funding of their political offices and careers you find a lot of ramifications, that sort of thing. For instance, when the Open Society he funds talks about 226 friendly MEPs at their disposal... they mean it. Lists with their names are easily found on the net.

That is completely wrong because:

To say that someone like Soros funds a very public and international network of institutions is not 'accusing him of heading a secret cabal' at all. The idea that he 'wants to control the world' is optional and not one I care for but it is ridiculous and childish to talk as if he and others like him didn't have any influence at all in it, when he donates an absolute fortune to the Open Societies Foundation he does so very publicly again and will have very much a vision of the world of his own behind it. Him and others like him.

What's a conspiracy theory is to argue that when someone points out such things that is... a conspiracy theory. There isn't even a hint of criticism of the man for doing so in anything I said, it's his money and so what but it's enough to get some triggered so easily.

That is wrong. No one recognised the illegal settlements, bar trumps America.

If you’re going to try and argue against my point it’s generally polite to quote me.

Either way o stand by what I said; you statement is a conspiracy theory, and an antisemitic trope at that.

That's right, it's all made up for a laugh. Jacinda Ardern has come through the whole training and grooming process like so many others we see around these days, among other things she was made head of the IUSY in 2008...

IUSY's main field of activity is in the promotion of democracy, human rights, and youth policy. IUSY works by engaging international institutions, such as the Council of Europe, United Nations, Socialist International, European Youth Forum, and others, and directly targeting policy makers and media representatives at an international level to advocate for equal opportunities and the right to social and political participation for youth all over the world. Furthermore, IUSY trains activists at the grassroots level in the international political debate and policy development by organizing conferences and supporting political campaigns and initiatives on a regional and global level.
The IUSY have as their Control Commission President an Hungarian (not Soros!) from another outfit called Civitas (Institute for the Study of Civil Society) based in... Hungary. I've just looked up all that for the sake of showing you some of the links and ramifications in all this, took a couple of minutes. Ignore the whole thing, it's all a conspiracy and don't worry about any of it.

IUSY is shocked by the recently passed Hungarian legislation modifying the law on higher education, designed to close down the Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary.

The IUSY's and Ardern's motto? All over the world to change it, that's their official one.
