(NEWS) Canadian Chain Pulls Allegedly Anti-Semitic Magazine

"Canada's leading drugstore chain has pulled a controversial magazine from its racks, but insists the decision has nothing to do with complaints that its latest issue contained anti-Semitic images.

Shoppers Drug Mart said Tuesday that it will no longer sell Adbusters, an anti-consumerist/activist magazine based in Vancouver.

Lisa Gibson, a spokeswoman for the Shoppers, told the Globe and Mail newspaper Tuesday that the decision was unrelated to a campaign by the Canadian Jewish Congress against the magazine, which in its last issue ran a photo essay equating Israel's military actions in Gaza with the Holocaust."
