DjamshidThe Hamilton Ontario Jewish Federation raised $10,000 to help pay the medical expenses of Djamshid Popal, a 9 year old Afghan boy sent to Canada by Canadian Army medics for treatment. Djamshid is suffering from a serious heart condition brought on by untreated rheumatic fever. The Hamilton Jewish Federation will hand a cheque to Hamilton Muslim Association president Javid Mirza, who described this gesture as an example of “the good that can be achieved by working together.”

  • Dave, if it wasn’t for your your blog, the world would never know about this. Lord knows the newspapers would never report such an act.
    They’ve all got their pens in hand ready and waiting to slice and dice up israel the next time a child “shield” is killed in an attack on terrorists.
    Good work.
