2008 audit of antisemitic incidents in Canada

Via Terry Glavin in a comments thread, Modernity links to a 2008 audit of antisemitic incidents published by Canada’s B’nai Brith (the link from that page has a rogue ‘l’, so try from here).

Canada has half the the population of Britain but, in 2008, three times the incidence of antisemitism in Britain. The trend is up.

    Glavin’s thread, which inspired Paleoanarchist’s absurd comments, was the truth about George Galloway not making it into Canada while on his recent post-Viva Palestina speaking stump and very worthy of a read. The story ran in the media as a “freedom of speech” issue whereas in truth the government was concerned about violations of PCML (Proceeds of Crime / Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism), given Galloway’s very public presentation of cash and goods to the leader of an organization on the proscribed list of a number of countries, Canada included.

      Jonathan Hoffman’s piece on z-word, as linked to by Jacob above, deserves to be posted in its own right as dopes the follow-up on Harry’s Place.
