'Jews face gathering storm'
Former Canadian justice minister Irwin Cotler: Threat to Israel and Diaspora at level unprecedented since 1938

The Jewish people are facing a "gathering storm" in the form of threats posed by a genocidal Iran, Hizbullah, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and local terror cells which target Diaspora Jews, former Canadian Justice Minister and Jewish activist Irwin Cotler told a conference on the future of Jewish people in Jerusalem on Tuesday.


Dennis Ross, the former US ambassador to Israel said that "Iran is led today by a regime that believes in the destruction of Israel, and they're developing the means to actually do it."

From the conference, Israel radio's international hour with Dr. Yitzhak Noy interviewed a professor from McGill University who spoke about the sophistication of the new anti-Semitism that cloaks its bias in veils of anti-Zionism and delegitimization of the state Israel through falsified populist pretenses of so called "human rights" issues.
