Let me start by reaffirming that whenever I write, speak, or answer media questions on matters relating to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, I always do so in my personal capacity and never ever in any other capacity; professional or otherwise. My views are my own; I own them, and they do not extend beyond my person. More specifically, my views on this subject are never stretched to include any hint or possibility of policy or position of my employer or my professional affiliation.
I am not in the habit of publicly writing about my work. But this is a special time that compels me to do; only because my name and reputation have been dragged in mud by some irresponsible media outlets that – as a result of an incident of identity theft – falsely linked my personal views to my work, arrived at certain erroneous conclusions, and launched a campaign of incitement, slander, defamation, and character assassination against me and my reputation; both personally and professionally.
I am posting this article to inform visitors of Alcanaanite’s blog that all allegations against me in various media and social media outlets are false, unfounded, and will be dealt with; all in good time. For the time being, however, I remain faithful to my duties as a dedicated employee, for which I received a “Certificate of Commendation” for my “compassion, humanity and dedication to duty” certifying that my “exceptional effort and respect are deserving of service-wide recognition.” I also remain proud of working in a field that gave me the opportunity to offer my service to the Canadian public faithfully with honour and dedication, and for which I was honoured with – not one – but two high standing awards in recognition of my “outstanding contribution” to the development of work-related achievements aiming at providing better service to Canadians. Furthermore, I remain trusting of the process, and I remain hopeful that the investigation in this matter will be fair, thorough, professional, and expeditious. I hope that the truth will not be overtaken by innuendo, bad impersonation, and political pressure. When the truth prevails, I will be fine, my name will be cleared, and my reputation will be restored after the savage attacks that have been launched to tarnish it by little people and by those who falsely believe that they – by identity theft, falsehood, unfounded allegations, intimidation, fear mongering, mud-slinging, and slander – would be able to silence me and intimidate others.
My detractors are on the wrong side of history, and their tools include innuendo, identity theft, slander, intimidation, falsehood, and throwing a lot of “sh..” at a clean wall and hoping that some of it would stick. I am on the side of justice and peace for all, and my only tool is the truth. For this reason, I will win, and they will either lose or hopefully learn something useful.
This matter is not over; not yet. More to follow after the investigation in this affair is concluded.
Hope is the stuff from which life is made!
