From Ynet: Canada asked to detain former IDF head
Arabs, Jews representing left-wing organizations ask Canadian government to detain former Chief of Staff Yaalon upon his expected arrival in Toronto for suspicion of committing war crimes. Yaalon consults Israeli ambassador in Ottawa, decides make trip anyway
WASHINGTON – A group of left-wing organizations, mostly Arabs, some Jewish, called on the Canadian government to detain former Chief of Staff Moshe (Bugi) Yaalon who is planning to visit Toronto on Wednesday to appear in synagogue for a fundraising event for the benefit of wounded IDF soldiers.
The organizations claim that their request to ban Yaalon from entering Canada is based on the Canadian law which prohibits entrance of people suspected of war crimes and crimes against humanity. They asked authorities to detain Yaalon if he enters Canada.
You can read the whole thing here. What an embarrassment to my country.
I’m waiting for comment from the Canadian Govt, maybe our new Conservative leaders will take a stand on something, for the first time in Canada’s history.. But I’m not holding my breath.
