Report: Canada’s Arabic-Language Publications Contribute to Anti-Semitism Spike

Anti-Semitism hit a record-high in Canada in 2016, with a 26 percent increase in anti-Jewish incidents from the previous year, B’nai Brith Canada’s Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents shows.

More than 1,700 anti-Semitic incidents were reported across Canada.

B’nai Brith, the Canadian Jewish community’s preeminent human rights agency, recorded more incidents of anti-Semitism in eight of the past 10 years.

Incidents of Holocaust denial, a particular form of anti-Semitism, significantly increased last year. Holocaust denial comprised 5 percent of total reported anti-Semitic acts in 2015, but skyrocketed to 20 per cent of total incidents in 2016.

    But our cool prime minister knows what is really important to Canadians. Canada Post has announced today, that it will be issuing special stamps to celebrate gay marriage. Yes, Canada Post is celebrating homosexual sex. Good thing you don’t have to lick the stamps anymore.

      Can’t we just buy a stamp with Her Majesty’s head on it and not worry about all the other nonsense? Not that I use Canada Post any more than absolutely necessary. They seem to have got into the habit of misdirecting my mail. And I have found a new hobby – delivering the mail to the neighbours that was misdirected to me.

        Exactly. People today need to be reminded this is still a constitutional monarchy

      Surprised Canada Post doesn’t make those ones lockable with something a little extra on it. So we of the Vanilla and Cis crowd can share in the LGBTQ+ experience. After all diversity enriches us.

    “…the emergence of a new and frightening trend in Canadian antisemitism: incitement against Jews in mass media, especially in Arabic-language publications…”
    The gift of diversity from our superiors. The gift that keeps on giving. The gift that ultimately swallows its recipients.

      Canada ended it’s anti semitism issues by the time of the St Louis ship in the 1930s. Most people in the West thought “”The articles of the elders of Zion”” was a joke 100 years ago. In the Middle East it’s considered educational material today

    It will be I interesting to see how Iqra Khalid and the M103 crowd will spin this one. I can wait to see that famous “”whole of Government approach””. Most people of common sense know when your being approached with the government’s whole anything you are in big trouble.

    • That little b!#ch put out a book supporting wife abuse while president of the Muslim Students’ Association.

  • Don’t say that no one could see this coming.

      Or that they are now surprised.

      • After all, ummahs need to blame someone for their inevitable collapse. Who if not the Jews?
