According to the European Jewish Press,
Wiesel has become the latest high-profile Jewish figure to appeal to the Canadian government to repeal controversial legislation which denies healthcare to refugees from “safe” countries.”
“Aligning with the Toronto Broad of Rabbis, that has made uncharacteristic political appeals on the subject, Wiesel wrote ‘I feel morally compelled to remain on the side of other uprooted men and women everywhere,’ adding that ‘today, a yesterday, a nation is judged by its attitude to refugees.’”Obviously these “judgment of a nation by its attitudes towards refugees” does not apply to Israel, or at least Wiesel has not had anything to say about Israel’ brutal mass arrests and expulsions of refugees.
The changes to Canadian law that came into effect on June 30 deny refugees from declared “safe” countries the right to benefits and healthcare payments formerly paid for by the federal government.
Whilst the list of these countries has yet to be revealed, it is thought to include Wiesel’s birth country of Hungary.
In a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Toronto Board of Rabbis appealed to the government to drop the bill.
Last month, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre called on parliament “to apply these new reforms with extreme caution, given the resurgence of racist and anti-Semitic threat in certain European countries”.
Once again, it is one rule for the Goyim, and another for the Jews.
