Jewish Defense League (terrorists) accepted in Canada

This was originally printed in today's Toronto Star.

JDL considered `terrorist' in U.S.

to stay at event, Letter Sept. 19

Sadly, I'm not at all surprised by the near-riot that the letter writer suggests was being stewed by the Jewish Defence League. While the group is treated as a noble humanitarian group, their charter actually encourages intimidation and violence to further their goals.

Not only that, but in the United States and abroad, they have been linked to several beatings and murders, usually politically motivated. That is why, in the U.S. and abroad, the JDL has been declared a terrorist group.

Yet in Canada – for reasons no one is willing to explain – the JDL is welcomed with open arms. What is the matter with this country?
