150 Jewish Canadians sign statement against suppression of criticism of Israel

Over 150 Jewish Canadians signed a statement expressing concern about recent atttepts to suppress criticism of Israel that is being carried on within Canada:
    We are Jewish Canadians concerned about all expressions of racism, anti-Semitism, and social injustice. We believe that the Holocaust legacy "Never again" means never again for all peoples. It is a tragic turn of history that the State of Israel, with its ideals of democracy and its dream of being a safe haven for Jewish people, causes immeasurable suffering and injustice to the Palestinian people.
