JNS.org – B’nai B’rith International said its views are not represented in an article that appeared in The Jewish Tribune of Toronto, a newspaper associated with B’nai B’rith Canada, that heavily criticized former Hamas captive Gilad Shalit.

“The Jewish Tribune story in no way represents the views of B’nai B’rith International or its members and supporters around the world,” the organization said in a statement released Thursday.

“B’nai B’rith International has the deepest respect for Shalit and the horrors he endured as a Hamas captive. We are proud to have hosted him as a special guest at the B’nai B’rith Europe Young Jewish Adult Forum in London in November 2012, where he was warmly received. Some 200 delegates from more than 20 European countries, Israel and the United States were on hand when Shalit was made an honorary B’nai B’rith International member,” the statement said.
