On the contrary, Foxman is also a vocal opponent to the Park51 Islamic community center near Ground Zero, and indulges in much the same bigotry as Geller, though with more delicatesse. Nor are the Foxmans and Farbers worried about the advice Israeli "military attaches' in the US and Canada are whispering in our leaders' ears.
Meanwhile, the Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) is currently fighting a legal against Harper's ex-Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney regarding the 2009 decision to cut federal funding to CAF, which provides vital settlement programs for new Arab Canadians, teaching immigrants language and job searching skills. CAF President Mouammar stated that the CAF was the victim of a "well-planned Zionist campaign being waged by the Canadian Jewish Congress and B'nai Brith supported by some politicians. The campaign of intimidation launched by the Israeli lobby and their supporters is seeking to de-legitimize Arab Canadian institutions, services, access to public funds and to silence all criticism of Israel."
Note that JDL Canada is discretely absent from this campaign of mainstream bigotry. Is it possible that the CJC (now the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs), B'nai Brith and the JDL, is really just a case of the Israeli lobby's "good cop, bad cop'? That the JDL's extreme bigotry and incitement to violence--as exemplified by the Geller/Spencer event--is merely a way of making the more mainstream Zionist bigotry of the Israeli lobby--as exemplified by Attias as Canada's first Israeli "military attache'--more palatable to Canadians?
