Canada accused of failing to fight anti-Semitism

Whatever goes around...
OTTAWA - Leftist and liberal academics and intellectuals are joining forces with Islamic extremists in an "unholy alliance" to delegitimize the state of Israel and promote anti-Semitism, says the head of a leading international Jewish organization.

Avi Beker, secretary-general of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), said yesterday the anti-Semitic campaign is spreading throughout university campuses across North America. He said the evidence is in such events as the riot that occurred at Montreal's Concordia University this year, which prevented former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking.
