Time to shut down the Canadian Jewish Congress
Iran is building a nuclear bomb.
Hezbollah is rearming with long-range missiles from North Korea.
The United Nations is as brutally anti-Israel as ever with the largest bloc now being the Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Boycott and divestment campaigns are on a tear in Europe, and the British advertising standards council has barred Israel from using images of the Western Wall in tourism ads. Canada's postal union has condemned a stamp celebrating Canada-Israel relations.
Labour unions and left wing churches regularly pass anti-Israel motions. University faculties refuse to meet their Israeli colleagues.
In North America, even in Canada, some university campuses are no-go zones for kids with yarmulkes.
But the Canadian Jewish Congress is in their situation room fighting back against... the Toronto police decision to list "shiksas" as a "victim group". That's muscling in on Bernie "Burny" Farber's turf, and he won't stand for it! Only Bernie can play the victim card! Time to fight!
Clear everying less important off Burny's desk! This is the top priority!
The CJC sounds like I do when I'm trying to do anything to avoid doing real work -- you know, sort the fridge alphabetically, iron some blue jeans, write on my blog, etc. It's why I've deleted freecell from my computer.
Seriously, is there any reason -- other than Burny's high self regard, and even higher salary -- that the CJC isn't just put out of its misery?
Let the Canada-Israel Committee fight the Israel battles.
Let the local Jewish communities councils and synagogues deal with their local matters.
Let the Jewish charities do their work.
Let the campus clubs help the kids.
But the bizarre CJC and its strange priorities -- demonizing Canada's greatest Zionist, Mark Steyn; making fools of themselves (and us all) over shiksas; their fetish for government censorship -- are just embarrassing.
And a waste of precious community resources.
They've had a good run. But they've outlived any possible usefulness.
Shut 'em down.
