Zionists 'wear the label proudly'

To anyone who knows the history of Bnai Brith, this letter is rather extraordinary. It shows how far this organization has come since its foundation.
"Kol Hakavod."

Re: CAF Chief Alleges 'Zionist Campaign,' March 9.
Canadian Arab Federation president Khaled Mouammar has accused B'nai Brith Canada of waging a "Zionist campaign" to silence Arab Canadians. His claim that Jewish groups have co-opted media outlets, such as the National Post, and even the government, to do their bidding smacks of age-old anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
B'nai Brith Canada continues to urge all concerned Canadians to speak out against Islamist terrorism perpetrated by such groups as Hamas and Hezbollah, which deliberately target Israeli civilians. We especially encourage Arab Canadians -- who know firsthand the realities of the Middle East and understand only too well how populations can be held hostage by the warped agenda of Islamist terrorists -- to voice their opposition to these destructive forces.
Yes, Mr. Mouammar, we are Zionists who wear the label proudly. We will continue to oppose each and every effort that seeks to delegitimize the Jewish state and its supporters. We will denounce those voices promoting hate, whether emanating from Canadian universities, unions or from the head of an Arab organization whose mandate to settle newcomers to this country has been seriously put into question.
Frank Dimant, executive vice-president, B'nai Brith Canada, Toronto.
