How. Friggin. Embarassing.
A recent survey shows that 31% of all Canadians think Israel’s actions were a â€œprimary causeâ€ of 9/11. The figure for Quebec was 38% of respondents. Jack Jedwab, director of the Montreal-based Association for Canadian Studies stated that
…the Jewish community should be concerned that a sizeable minority of Canadians overall are ready to blame Israel for 9/11. â€œIt will be a big challenge to change their minds. A lot of work and dialogue is needed to help people better understand why the Jewish community, legitimately, feels differently.â€
Or maybe it’s just that poutine and back bacon promote hardening of arteries and gut wrenching stupidity? Maybe it’s just an issue of better diet – didja think about that Jack? You can read the entire article in the Canadian Jewish News. Tip of the toque to Judeopundit – yet another JBlog with a huuuuge blogroll that doesn’t include Jewlicious. What’s up with that??
