NDP Deputy Leader Libby Davies diverges from Mulcair with stronger stance on Israel-Gaza conflict | National Post

She also said she was “probably” the strongest pro-Palestinian MP in Parliament, and said there was fear among MPs to debate issues like boycotts, sanctions and other measures to pressure Israel.

“If you are perceived to be anti-Israeli occupation somehow you’re also branded as anti-Semitic. To me it’s sort of a new McCarthyism that’s taken place.”

Davies later issued a statement saying her comment about 1948 was a “serious and completely inadvertent error.” She apologized and said she’s never questioned Israel’s right to exist.
