Bernie Farber, chief “Professional Jew” here in Canada, doesn’t think Hezbollah in Canada is an issue.
“Chatter happens all the time,” said Bernie Farber, the Toronto-based chief executive of the Canadian Jewish Congress. He said conversations he had with several police agencies yesterday left him with the impression the threat was thoroughly investigated and dismissed.
But several sources say that much time, money and effort is being spent probing the activities of Hezbollah in Canada. The organization was legally blacklisted as a terrorist entity by Ottawa in 2002.
Concerns about possible Canadian attacks coincided with heightened fears Jewish communities worldwide have felt in the past six months.
Considering that Farber is a hard-core Zionist, it seems odd that he is so ignorant of this.
