    “To be sure, there is also tremendous support for Israel on the Liberal – and even the NDP – bench. For example, I don’t think there’s a parliamentarian anywhere in the world whose record on Israel approaches that of Liberal MP Irwin Cotler.”

    That is correct and I wish Prime Minister Harper had included some Liberal MP’s like Professor Cotler or Carolyn Bennett and NDP MP’s like Pat Martin or even Tom Mulcair in his delegation to make it more about the Canadian people than the Conservative Party.

    I worry that many people in our Jewish community will vote on a single issue in the next election and that we are being guided to do that by some of our major Jewish organizations like B’nai Brith, JNF and Chabad which all appear to be overt in their support for the Conservative Party.

    I’d like to know where Jewish federations and CIJA stand on such partisanship.
