Review of the Year (2005) in Foreign Countries: Canada

By Harold M. Waller

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2005

Liberal Party leader and prime minister, Paul Martin, called an election in June 2004. Experts argued that Canada was a target of terrorism, even though it had not yet experienced an attack. Canada was criticized for its lack of support for Israel, but the Israeli government viewed Canada's foreign policy, which did not match completely with the U.S., was still credible. Surveys demonstrated widespread ignorance of Israel. University campuses were the center of Israeli-Palestinian violence. Canada experienced an increase in antisemitic incidents.
