Toronto Sun: Michael Coren: “Slaughter of innocents” (19/3/2011) “Last week I wrote of how proud I was of being a Zionist, and how much I admired and respected the flawed but still remarkable state of Israel. The vomit of abuse was predictable — sent to me privately but also on display in the comment section of this newspaper.” Send letter to editorSubmit online comment Toronto Sun: Howard C. Tenenbaum (letter to the editor) “Ignoring real abuses” (19/3/2011) “Re “Israel stands alone” (March 12): Michael Coren is spot on in his observations relating to the horrific terrors being wrought on people of the Middle East by their own governments (run by Muammar Gadhafi and others), while those who hate Israel continue to castigate it for committing abuses it has not committed. Israel is an abuser of human rights? The boycotters of Israel and planners of Israel Apartheid Week are now exposed for what they are: Anti-Semites. They criticize the world’s only Jewish state for human rights transgressions of which it is not guilty, while giving a pass to true monsters like Gadhafi and his ilk, and this is no mere coincidence. The world’s sole Jewish state is being discriminated against in the most hateful and vigorous ways because, well, it is the world’s only Jewish state. The only viable explanation for this behaviour is those who have been accusing Israel falsely of human rights abuses are anti-Semites. So I congratulate Coren on his excellent observations, but also offer an explanation that helps us understand, at least in part, the behaviour of the anti-Israel rabble as they demonstrate their hatred of Israel with that obscenity known as IAW, while ignoring true abuses of human rights.”Toronto Sun note: (This year’s version of the so-called Israeli Apartheid Week couldn’t have suffered from worse timing, given all the Arabs and Muslims protesting the brutality of their own governments)”
Toronto Sun: Sue Anne Levy: "Paying price for Pride" (20/3/2011) "The battle lines have clearly been drawn. On one side is Rev. Brent Hawkes, his left-leaning Community Advisory Panel (CAP), newbie city councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam and her lefty mouthpiece Xtra, who for all intents and purposes are doing everything they can to ensure the controversial Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QuAIA) group continue to march in this year’s Pride parade."

National Post: Temima Cohen: (letter to the editor) “No flotilla for Israeli victims” (19/3/2011) “So I am just wondering how many flotillas are being sent to help the people of Itamar? And how many university campuses are setting up for Palestinian Brutality Week? Why isn’t the UN Human Rights Council demanding an investigation into such acts of inhumanity? Both Gunter and Stephens are correct. The Palestinians, who have been known to ch
