PA Canadian envoy recalled over anti-Semitic tweet

The Palestinian Authority has recalled their envoy to Canada, Linda Sobeh Ali for posting alink to an anti-Semitic video on Twitter.

Linda Sobeh Ali posted a tweet with a link to a YouTube video featuring an Palestinian girl shouting a poem in Arabic . The English subtitles on the video include a passage where millions are called upon "destroy the Jews."

From Ha'aretz

Shimon Fogel of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs informed Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird of the link, who deemed it wholly inappropriate and expressed “profound disappointment” to the Palestinian Authority on behalf of Canada.

Sobeh Ali later apologized for the incident.
