Canadian Officials Blasted Over Taxpayer-Funded Talk Demonizing Israel at MacEwan University

A prominent Canadian Jewish group on Wednesday denounced a government-sponsored conference held at MacEwan University featuring a speaker who endorsed anti-Israel boycotts and promoted the work of a radical activist accused of antisemitism.

    The Liberals, NDP and Greens are all on the same page concerning Israel and Jews. This was certainly one area where Harper made me proud to be Canadian.

    Government funded?! That is my gd money going to fund a political movement I abhor.

    Yes, but this pretty much describes all Canadian universities. So why are they complaining now?

    The Edmonton John Humphrey Centre has become little more than an instrument of pro-Muslim propaganda over the last decade or so. Many Board members are graduates of the Radical Marxist Political Science faculty at the University of Alberta, particularly the Middle Eastern and African Studies department. Many students are shaped into Muslim sympathizers after going through that program. I am not surprised that this ends up translating into anti-Semite, pro-Palestinian sentiments being promoted by The John Humphrey Society. My taxes going to promote this agenda is particularly galling ~ both at JH and at UofA.
