All That And A Bag of Anti-Semitism, Too!

Carolyn Parrish's anti-Americanism may be a clever front to deflect attention from her anti-semitism.

David Frum was all over her in February 2003.

This past June, for example, she joined a delegation of nine MPs on a trip to the West Bank and Gaza paid for by Canadian Palestinian radicals. On her return, she told the sponsors of the trip: "You got your money's worth. You have nine members of parliament who've come back completely and totally convinced that what's going on over there is a crime against humanity."

The point of the June mission was to publicize the Palestinian claim that the Israelis committed unspeakable atrocities during their raid into the city of Jenin. (One of the 9 MPs on the trip referred to Jenin as the Palestinians' own "ground zero," a phrase that at one and the same time spreads a lie about Jenin while denying the truth about 9/11.) Four months later, Parrish attacked a Canadian reporter named Stewart Bell for his work debunking the Jenin hoax, suggesting that his independence had been compromised by his acceptance of a press award from the B'nai Brith. Her own junketing, presumably, affected her judgment not at all.

There's more.
