The integrity of the Canadian International Development Agency’s foreign aid funding operation

The United Church of Canada and other Canadian churches are demanding Prime Minister Stephen Harper explain why one of his cabinet ministers accused them of being anti-Semitic.

The United, Catholic and Anglican churches are part of KAIROS, an aid group that was shocked to hear Immigration Minister Jason Kenney say its funding was lifted as part of the Conservatives’ effort to cut off anti-Semitic organizations.

“To label KAIROS’s criticism of Israeli government actions as `anti-Semitic’ silences dissent and honours no one,” the statement said. “KAIROS has a clear position of support for the legitimate right of the Israeli people to a safe and secure state.”
