Is Canada Anti-Semitic?

Recommended Posts

Phht. A few windows broken. How many schools burned down? And where can you get together a violent mob to attack a Muslim speaker and the people who want to hear him? They seem to have plenty of those for Israeli speakers at various Canadian universities.

And then there were the Islamic Canadians who were arrested following September 11, illegally extradited to the United States and released because they were not guilty of anything. There have been quite a few cases of this.

It is easy to dismiss but it has been happening fairly regularly.

Released 'because they were not guilty of anything" is overstating the case. If you remember, we got back one of the Khadr boys who everyone at first said "was not guilty of anything" but he later admitted he trained with al Quaeda, and that he cooperated with the CIA and gave them names - which was why he was released. Furthermore, Muslims do not seem to be clamouring to get out of Canada or the United States. Quite the contrary, in fact. Certainly there's nothing like the move by Jews to leave France because of growing anti-semitism there.

The one Khadr you are talking about was not involved in the conflict unlike his brother (according to the U.S. which has not presented its case yet).

And this isn't about one upping on racism and intolerance. The point was that it is happening to many people not related to the conflict at all.
