Israel supporters rally in Montreal
Hundreds of members of Montreal's Jewish community gathered outside of the Israeli Consulate in Westmount at noon Monday to voice their support for Israel, and defend what is being described as its "legitimate right to enforce an arms blockade on the Hamas-ruled Gaza strip."
The rally was organized in response to fierce international pressure and criticism for Israel's commando raid on a convoy of aid ships heading to the Gaza strip last week.

Students of today, voices of tomorrow

| Throughout my time at McGill University in Montreal, I've become aware of the strong Jewish presence on campus in the city I have called home for the last three years. |
Although the common refrains of "There is so much anti-Semitism and hatred toward Israel on college campuses today" and "It's best that you not go to those rallies - they're dangerous for students" can be heard periodically, there has continued to be an unwavering number of students who support Israel, which was highlighted this year at McGill.
Recently in Toronto, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu noted the importance of students on college campuses who seek the truth on Israel and who are active in doing so. It's this responsibility to seek the truth that students should adhere to.
