Two Canadian Islamic leaders are under fire for comments seen as anti-Semitic. The leader of the Canadian Islamic Congress, Mohamed Elmasry, has told several Canadian media outlets that all adult Israelis are legitimate targets for Palestinian suicide bombers, because they’ve all served in the Israeli army. Meanwhile, Canadian police are investigating Sheik Younus Kathrada, who has been quoted as calling Jews “brothers of monkeys and swine.”
