B’nai Brith Canada has complained about an article in the Arabic-language Al Saraha newspaper published in London

“Shala, the magazine’s owner and general manager, said he didn’t know that the facts in the piece, which he said was written by an Egyptian journalist for another publication, were incorrect.”

Holocaust denial and anti-semitism are among the values we share in common with Islam according to Justin Trudeau.  h/t MP

    Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has condemned an antisemitic article appearing in a Southwestern Ontario publication.

    In an email sent to B’nai Brith Canada, Wynne did not mince words.

    “I want to condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the statements in the al-Saraha article that deny the Holocaust and express anti-Semitic and homophobic views,” Wynne said in the email. “Statements like these, filled with hatred, prejudice and lies, have no place in our society. That is why we have established the Anti-Racism Directorate, with a mandate to fight racism in all its forms. . .

    “The Ontario Liberal Caucus was completely unaware of al-Saraha’s intent to publish this article when it purchased advertising space to convey Ramadan greetings to the community. I assure you that our caucus will no longer purchase advertising space in this publication.”

    Earlier this week, B’nai Brith Canada exposed the article that was headlined, “The Question Which Everyone Ignores: Why Did Hitler Kill the Jews?” which appeared in the June-July edition of the Arabic al-Saraha newspaper based in London, Ont. The article, which accused Jews of introducing homosexuality and “Every type of sexual deviance” into Germany and causing the country’s economic collapse, was widely panned by Canadian media.

    In a separate statement, Deputy Premier and London North Centre MPP Deb Matthews, whose advertisement had also appeared in al-Saraha, said: “I want to condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the statements in the Al-Saraha article. Statements like these, filled with hate, prejudice and lies, have no place in Canadian society.”

    B’nai Brith Canada also has reached out to all MPPs whose faces appeared in advertisements in the June-July edition of al-Saraha.

    So now that the Premier has called it hate speech – when will the London police law charges….. I’m not holding my breath – I’m sure Mo will be granted an exemption.

      CJN finally broke radio silence and sent a reporter. She writes:

      “London Police Service spokesperson Sandasha Bough said police are investigating.

      “There has to be a Criminal Code offence. So in order for us to lay any charges at all, there has to be a Criminal Code offence that has been committed. They’re going to have to read through everything and determine whether anything has taken place within that article that has been published,” Bough said.

      She added that she couldn’t make a determination about when investigators would make a decision.”

      Don’t know about you, but I’m not holding my breath.
