The Canadian branch of the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling for censure of an Israeli diplomat who said most terrorists today are Muslims and the majority of Muslims support extremism.
With no proof, of course, that this is inaccurate. You’re just not supposed to say it. CAIR has done this before.
The Canadian group, CAIR-CAN, wants Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew to censure Israeli Consul General Ya’acov Brosh for his comments at the recent Daniel Pearl Dialogue for Muslim-Jewish Understanding in Toronto.
Brosh noted that one of the most popular names in the Muslim world is “Osama.”
The event, held at the Temple Har Zion Synagogue, was organized by the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies.
CAIR-CAN said in a statement issued yesterday the comments “foster hate and bigotry against Canadian Muslims.”
“Mr. Brosh’s comments, made as they were by an Israeli official in Canada, cannot be allowed to stand without a response from the Canadian government,” the Islamic group said.
“We are calling on Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew to censure Mr. Brosh and indicate to him such Islamophobia will not be tolerated in Canada,” the statement declared.
