A Montreal radio talk show host host has been suspended after allegations that he incited a caller's anti-Semitism.

Jacques Fabi of Cogeco's 98.5 has been blasted for not only allowing a woman to spew verbal attacks against Jewish citizens but also praise the holocaust.

Fabi not only didn't dump the caller last week, he added he would never do such a thing because there are consequences to saying anything about the Jews....that Jews are so annoying.

Today both Fabi and  Cogeco issued apologies about the hosts inappropriate comments made on air.

The broadcasting company confirming Fabi's been suspended without pay for one month.

Steven Slimovitch speaks for B'nai Brith.

"We believe that a host can take positions in a discussion, he can slant it so to speak, but clearly a host cannot spew hatred on the airwaves"

Slimovitch says what's important for B'nai Brith, and other human rights organizations is that this situation doesn't happen again.

    Freedom of speech comes with responsibility for what you say.

    Jacques Fabi has said several times on the air throughout the years that anti-seminic humorist Dieudonné was his « BIG idol » so no surprise here...
