A Cherniakian dilemma

After his recent outpouring of lies and smears about the NDP and its candidates, not to mention his implicit suggestion that uncritical support of the State of Israel should be a qualification to run in a Canadian election, Jason Cherniak may now have a little problem with one of his own.

Here's Lesley Hughes, running for the Liberals in Kildonan-St.Paul, on the 9/11 attacks:

German Intelligence (BND) claims to have warned the U.S. last June, the Israeli Mossad and Russian Intelligence in August. Israeli businesses, which had offices in the Towers, vacated the premises a week before the attacks, breaking their lease to do it. About 3000 Americans working there were not so lucky.

I await Cherniak's denunciation of the Liberal Party for running one of those Troofer anti-Semites he's been going on about.

Jason? Oh, Jason...?

Is that the crash of a glass house shattering--or the pleasant sound of a Liberal operative being torn in two by conflicting priorities?

UPDATE: (September 26)

Hughes issues a classic non-apology apology:
"I find any interpretation of my journalism as anti-Semitic personally offensive and I heartily apologize for that perception."

Nice of her to apologize for my perception. And still no word from Cherniak--cat got his tongue?

UPPERDATE: Cherniak speaks! To paraphrase: "But-but-but....the NDP!"

UPPESTDATE: Hughes is bounced. Will Cherniak claim the credit?
