Antisemitism in Canada at tipping point into mainstream

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we found that foreign media was covering the fact that a United Church in downtown Toronto was letting their event space to laud a Muslim terrorist.

The event — which has since been cancelled in part due to this media outcry — was set to honour a man named Ghassan Kanafani, who is designated as a terrorist with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Kanafani was killed in 1972, and the event was intended to launch the 2019 Ghassan Kanafani Resistance Arts Scholarship.

According to the Canadian government's list of banned terrorist entities, the PFLP is right up there along with the Taliban and Al Qaida.

I don't think antisemitism has ever been a real problem in Canada, which is just about one of the friendliest places in the world to be a Jew. But there is a new brand of antisemitism stoked by Muslim extremists being imported to our country.

“That, however isn’t antisemitism, much as the left has tried to paint criticism of him with that slant, and it doesn’t mean I feel that way about Jews as a people”

Really? Israel has been hiding behind that very veil for decades. Is it antisemitic to point out the illegality of their settlements on occupied land?

In terms of this, Levant has played with fire in terms of courting the Islamophobe crowd, as they tend not to be real fond of Jews either.

The United Church sipped being Christian a long time ago—-so of course they are anti-Semitic too. It’s a natural regression for them.

“All slime should be outed and criticized "

Not a problem, criticize away. Soros is one scummy fellow who happens to be Jewish for example and he certainly needs calling out. That, however isn’t antisemitism, much as the left has tried to paint criticism of him with that slant, and it doesn’t mean I feel that way about Jews as a people. I don’t hate all Muslims but there sure are a lot of Islamists who hate the west and want to kill Jews and Christians, so I can’t say that I like all Muslims.

It is beyond just being an apologist for the Canadian left to accommodate Islamists in the name of inclusivity. We shouldn’t be entertaining Islamists on any level. I am very glad that the United Church cancelled and not surprised that they thought it might be an alright thing to do in the first place.
