Canada: Parliamentary C'tee Urges Jewish Refugee Recognition

Shimon Fogel, chairman of the Jewish lobby in Canada, called on the Canadian government to adopt the recommendations of a parliamentary committee which urges the recognition of Jewish refugees from Arab countries.

The recommendations are from the committee for foreign policy, which prepared an extensive report on Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa since the mid-1900s. Last week an executive summary of the report was presented to members of parliament, reports Shalom Toronto.
