Ottawa pledges $1M for anti-Semitism task force
Frank Dimant, B’nai Brith Canada’s executive vice-president, spoke of the verbal and physical attacks perpetrated against Jewish and pro-Zionist students at university campuses across Canada over the past year.
It seems unthinkable, he mused, that in this day and age, “Canadian universities would be the hotbed of anti-Semitism, disguised as anti-Zionism.”
Dimant went on to praise Canada’s boycott of the United Nations recent followup to its 2001 anti-racism conference, as well as Kenney’s role as a supporter of the Jewish community.
“Your government has been a trailblazer… [and] we are proud to call Canada a friend and ally,” Dimant said.
Please, someone hand out the sickie bags.
A couple of things on Dimant's comments: One, there is difference between the behaviour of Israel's government and the feeling of Jews world wide, Frank. Equating the two puts all Jews in the basket with the worst of the worst who are leading Israel into the pit of hell.
Two: Why is Frank saying that 'your' government has a been a trail blazer - gee Frank isn't it your government too? Or are you simply a foriegn lobbbyist bought and paid for by the more extreme elements of ultra zionist ideology? Aren't you Canadian first Frank? If not, well then make aliyah already darnit!
