*Liberals: Tory leaflets suggest Grits are anti-Semitic*
OTTAWA — The Liberals say Conservative MPs have distributed taxpayer-funded
leaflets which suggest the Grits are anti-Semitic.
They say the pamphlets, which were mailed to households in at least four
ridings with large Jewish populations, are full of lies and represent a new
low in petty partisanship.
They want an apology.
The leaflets ask voters to choose which federal political leader best
represents and defends the values of Canada’s Jewish community.
They compare Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s strong support for Israel to
alleged waffling on the part of the Liberals, including their participation
in what the Tories call the “overtly anti-Semitic” 2001 Durban conference on
Montreal Liberal MP Irwin Cotler, who attended the United Nations-sponsored
conference, says Israel actually asked Canadian representatives to remain at
Durban to “bear witness” to anti-Semitic rants by some delegations.
