Two articles from the Free Press, with the first one drawing a lot of interesting comments.

Exam question angers B'nai Brith 9 June, 2010

This is Chantal's reaction.
A bristling Kreviazuk denies exam article was anti-Israel 11 June, 2010

the best is the press release on Saturday where B'nai Brith tries to blame the media for attaching Chantal


LOL.. NO ONE ATTACKED CHANTAL.


Most people saw this as a blatantly moronic attempt from BB.

Interesting letter in response to Bartley Kives' article New-style anti-Semitism

"Why are Israel's neighbors hostile?

Why should the Arabs make peace? If I was an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country. Sure, God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We come from Israel, it's true, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-Semitism the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that? They may perhaps forget in one or two generations' time, but for the moment there is no chance. So it's simple: we have to stay strong and maintain a powerful army. Our whole policy is there. Otherwise the Arabs will wipe us out.
- Quote attributed to David Ben-Gurion in a late night conversation with Nahum Goldman in 1956, on page 99 of "The Jewish Paradox", 1978, authored by Nahum Goldman, himself founder and longtime president of the World Jewish Congress."

What's going on with these people now?

They issue a press release then b1tch that the media is running their story. It makes no sense.
