CIJA: “We stand in solidarity with the Muslim community”

In an open letter to the Jewish community, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), Canada’s foremost pro-Israel advocacy organization, reaffirms its standing in solidarity with the Muslim community following the terrorist attack on Quebec City mosque on January 29, 2017.

“An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us,” CIJA’s statement reads. “Sunday’s attack is a shocking reminder that Canadians aren’t immune to violence.”

CIJA called on MPs to support Bill C-305, An Act to Amend the Criminal Code (mischief). Once this legislation passes, minority institutions – like Jewish community centres, Muslim schools, or Sikh communal institutions – will receive the same protections under the criminal code as places of worship.
