Canada: University-sanctioned antisemitic Muslim voting guide gets federal funding
The "Canadian Muslim Voting Guide: Federal Election 2019" was released by the Canadian Islamophobia Industry Research Project at Wilfred Laurier University on Oct. 18, just three days before Canadians went to the polls.
Disturbingly, one of the six "key issues" for Canadian Muslims unilaterally selected by the authors of the Voting Guide is support for the anti-Israel and antisemitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement (pages 18-20). As rightly expressed by Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B'nai Brith Canada: "It is totally unacceptable that government funds have been used to promote an antisemitic movement in Canada."
Research by B'nai Brith shows that the Voting Guide's lead author, Jasmine Zine, received $24,923 from the SSHRC in 2018 for a project called "Mapping the Canadian Islamophobia Industry."
Who is Jasmine Zine?
