Elmasry is at it again!

Mohamed Elmasry, President of the Canadian Islamic Congress, is at it again. This time he is upset that two jews, Leo Kolber and Jonathan Schneiderman, have been appointed to senior poistions advising the government.
"With the Muslim community's vulnerability to negative attention since 9/11 . . . there is understandable nervousness at the news that two of Canada's most active supporters of Israeli domestic and foreign policy will now have key voices in Canadian security and foreign policy decisions," said Dr. Elmasry, a professor of computer engineering at the University of Waterloo.

B'nai Brith Canada denounced his statement as inherently anti-Semitic and said Dr. Elmasry has lost credibility over past anti-Israel comments.

"He is effectively saying that Jews ought to be automatically excluded from holding positions within government . . . because of a supposed inherent bias against all Muslims," said Frank Dimant, B'nai Brith's vice-president. "It is time for those in the Muslim community for whom Elmasry claims to speak [to] stand up and say this individual does not represent them."
