Hierarchies of worth

October 16, 2015

This Embassy Magazine article by immigration lawyer Maureen Silcoff offers an indictment of the Harper positions on Israel and Syrian refugees. Turns out lots of Jews don’t like Harper’s fear-and-division world view. For one thing she talks about Canadian synagogues signing up to sponsor Syrian refugee families. Jews know what it’s like to be refugees.

I’ve never read anything quite like Silcoff’s essay.
