Thanks, Gerry

Thanks to Gerry Chidiac for writing his opinion piece, and to the Citizen for printing it. 

I agree with him and I'm Jewish. I support the rights of Palestinians. I criticize Israel - and it deserves criticism. Am I anti-Semitic? Am I anti-Canadian?

Some years ago I was in the audience of a Palestinian professor who was visiting Canada. He told us that when he landed at Toronto's Pearson Airport, he was pulled aside, interrogated, and asked if, while he was in Canada, he was going to say anything derogatory about Israel. 

Not about Canada. About Israel. (He did. He told us how Israeli soldiers shot his mother when she was sitting in her doorway working on her embroidery.)

Is Trudeau a member of the Israeli Knesset? Are our immigration officials trained, or paid, by the Israelis? Makes you wonder.
