Antisemitic carnivals in Europe

The Canadian Interfaith Conversation was established to promote harmony and religious insight among religions and religious communities in Canada, strengthen our society’s moral foundations, and work for greater realization of the fundamental freedom of conscience and religion for the sake of the common good and an engaged citizenship. The reports of antisemitic carnivals held in Aalst, Belgium are deeply troubling, and they stand in opposition to the core principles of the Canadian Interfaith Conversation and its desire for constructive expressions of religious and cultural pluralism. Along with all other people of good will, we stand against such expressions of hatred and prejudice.
