While our work in countering poverty, racism and exclusion is far from done, the Canadian experience has been a marked success.

Anti-Semitism used to be theoretical to me, a thing that happened to my grandparents. Now it's become a reality I have to explain to my son. There are people saying that we deserve a right to attack people not because of anything they've done but because of their religion.

The problems highlighted by CIJ News forces Muslims to confront hateful Muslim speakers in the age of increasing Islamophobia. The coming together of Muslims and Jews in the wake of Islamophobic and anti-Semitic events allows us a golden opportunity to isolate hateful speakers and render horrid texts obsolete.

Ezra is not an anti-Semite. So what, then, is he doing keeping the likes of Gavin McInnes on the payroll? What is the truth about alt-Right heroine Lauren Southern and her speedy departure? Is Rebel Media so free-speechy that it will now give an uncritical platform to Holocaust denier rhetoric?
Yes, right here in Not-America. The bomb threat called into the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre in Toronto, which also houses a daycare and a school, is part of a wave of anti-Semitism that has rocked North America in recent weeks.

The jury is in. According to a new survey, the vast majority of Canadians do not consider criticism of the government of Israel to be necessarily "anti-Semitic." This finding contradicts those who have been warning of a "new anti-Semitism" in Canada, where criticism of Israel is a veiled form of this despicable historic ideology.

I'm just going to come right out and say it: I think Americans have a lot to be concerned about unless, among other things, they don't care about their freedom to choose and their basic human rights. Have you been paying attention to Donald Trump's nominees? Do you know what they believe in and stand for? I have been keeping up with his picks and their platforms. And let me tell you, unless I was an affluent, white, heterosexual, conservative Christian man, I'd be more than a little nervous.

Last Thursday I arrived at my synagogue to find it vandalized. It was heartbreaking to see blatant anti-Semitism and racism displayed in our nation's capital. But after a difficult week, far more than a silver lining has emerged. Ottawa has united to send a clear message to anyone who would target communities based on their faith, race, or other characteristic.
Canadians need to stop being polite about their racism and start owning it. Resist the urge to get defensive of multiculturalism and realize not everyone experiences Canada in the same way. Multiculturalism alone cannot mitigate prejudice, not without action. Canada is not devoid of racism because of our multiculturalism and the 'Trump Effect' must not eclipse the domestic racism that has long existed in this country.
