      Canada: Anti-Israel Groups Attempt to Prevent Ehud Barak Visit

      Pro-Palestinian and leftist Jewish groups are spearheading a campaign to prevent former Defense Minister Ehud Barak from visiting Canada, according to Shalom Toronto.

      Barak is currently set to visit Surrey, British Columbia, on February 27. However, the groups sent a strongly worded letter to the mayor and members of the city council asking that the visit be cancelled - on grounds of him being "a war criminal" and a "terrorist."
