WATCH: Canadian MPs pay tribute to Jewish refugees from Arab lands

Last Friday, November 30, was “Jewish Refugee Day.” Canadian Members of Parliament Marco Mendicino, representing the ruling Liberal party, and David Sweet of the Conservative Opposition paid tribute in the House of Commons to the memory of the 850,000 Jews forced to flee their homes from across the Middle East in the days leading up to and following the creation of the State of Israel.

MP David Sweet Pays Tribute to Jewish Refugees

Thank you David Sweet, M.P. for continuing your years-long tradition of honouring and paying tribute to the 850,000 Jewish refugees who were forced to flee their homes from across Arab lands and Iran.“I want to assure the Canadian Jewish community that we remember the Jewish refugees forced from their homes on this day of commemoration and that we will always fight against racism and antisemitism in all of its forms here at home and around the world.” #Jewsof48
