That Laith Marouf wins this year’s prize for “most bigoted racist to be awarded a government grant”, seemed to be excused by the minister and his minions. The CAEF is supporting a petition

At least a half dozen fulsome stories about the granting of funds from Heritage Canada to an outright racist antisemitic bigot, Laith Marouf, were produced by writers for the National Post. Kudos to that paper for covering the story from many angles and attempting to hold Minister  Ahmed Hussen, the Minister of Housing and Diversity’s feet to the fire.

That Marouf wins this year’s prize for “most bigoted racist to be awarded a government grant”, seemed to be excused by the minister and his minions until two Jewish MPs (Anthony Housefather and Ya’ara Saks) and a few media moderators called him out (notably Mark Goldberg and Jonathan Kay), as did Hillel Neuer of UN Watch.

(It might be noted that a US study conducted by the Heritage Foundation found a significant level of antisemitism among university DEI consultants, https://www.heritage.org/education/report/inclusion-delusion-the-antisemitism-diversity-equity-and-inclusion-staff.)

Unsurprisingly, when the Minister said he would “investigate” the situation, some of the leading Jewish advocacy groups in Canada jumped to indicate their contentment, not asking the Minister to take accountability nor even consider past accountabilities. They think it is sufficient and positive that the granting Ministry, Heritage Canada, under Minister Pablo Rodriguez, would review its criterion for past funding and ensure new guidelines precluded such an abominable decision from being made again.

Is this giving the two Ministers and senior staff an all too easy escape hatch from responsibility? You be the judge! 

It seems the government has ignored the fact that for over 20 years, while receiving over $500,000 in grants, Marouf and his wife have spewed their filth. They were the beneficiaries of a grant recipient organization, Community Media Advocacy Center, which they created. The Government of Canada seems to have no plan to undo the damage.

This suggests a fig leave is held over the naked truth—the government has been derelict, ignoring explicit racism and antisemitism while showering praise on a Jew hater. The government ought to have had a thick file on Marouf since he started his hate-fest while still a student many years ago. 

Jamil Jivani nails it, noting a pattern of racism is being embedded in our institutions and it will produce more like Marouf. Listen to the podcast.
