Ignatieff swims in anti-semitic waters again over International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development controversy

From the Black Rod

“It took seconds to discover that the turmoil at Rights & Democracy (as it’s usually spelled) revolves around the fact that the Conservatives have managed to appoint a majority of the board (7 to 6) and that majority is trying to rebalance the organization’s anti-Israel bias, something the old board views as political interference. One of the new appointments is David Matas, legal counsel for B’nai Brith Canada, not that you’ll find that information in the FP.

Apparently, last year the board voted “to fund a non-governmental organization that some board members argued was connected to pro-Palestinian terrorist organizations.” We haven’t been able to identify that NGO.”
