Watch: Jim Manly on Canada and its MOU with Israel

As Freedom Flotilla 3 sets sail, some video from the Canadian Boat to Gaza.

Jim Manly is a former Canadian MP and a retired United Church of Canada minister. He was a delegate on the Swedish Ship "Estelle" which attempted to break the blockade of Gaza in October 2012. 

In this video, he comments on the implications of the Memorandum of Understanding between Canada and Israel which says that targeting Israel for criticism is the face of the new anti-semitism. He also comments on Canada's proposed Bill C-51, which has now been passed by the Senate.
