  • Review: Canada and Israel: Building Apartheid

    Thousands of books describe various aspects of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict … This is the first book to focus on Canadian support for the dispossession of Palestinians, for a state based on one religion, and for the last major European colonial project.

  • Review: One of the Boys: Homosexuality in the Military During World War II

    Through careful and painstaking research, using archival evidence including court martial proceedings and interviews, Paul Jackson writes into World War II a social history of homosexuality in the Canadian Forces – a social history that had been, as he notes, ignored by military historians.

  • Queer Liberation: The Social Organization of Forgetting and the Resistance of Remembering

    In much of the Left and within gay/lesbian communities our rich queer histories of struggle have been forgotten, creating a kind of social and historical amnesia.

  • Queers Against Apartheid: From South Africa to Israel

    Like South Africa twenty-five years ago, Israel today portrays itself as a progressive liberal democracy, an endangered island of modernity in a backward and hostile region. The existence of a gay rights movement in Israel is deployed as another example of this modernity.

  • Queer & Radical Politics

    At the time of writing we were informed that Pride Toronto had banned Queers Against Israeli Apartheid from participating in this summer’s Toronto Pride March.

  • Climate Justice has a New Program, and New Hope for Victory

    On April 22, a mass international assembly in Cochabamba, Bolivia, adopted a charter for action to protect our planet from ecological devastation. Together, they drafted a People’s Agreement that places responsibility for the climate crisis on the capitalist system and on the rich countries that “have a carbon footprint five times larger than the planet can bear.”

  • Israel again gives Jews a bad name

    After Israeli commandos murdered nine people and wounded scores of others in international waters, I concluded that Israel continues to give Jews a bad name. “How did the latest fiasco happen?” ask incredulous Jews. I present my inside-the-brain-of-the-beast explanation.

  • Afghanistan: The Longest Lost War

    Despite almost a decade of warfare, including an invasion and occupation, the US military and its allies and client state armed forces are losing the war in Afghanistan. Outside of the central districts of a few cities and the military fortresses, the Afghan national resistance forces, in all of their complex local, regional and national alliances, are in control, of territory, people and administration.

  • Of Trial Balloons and Hot Air: Political Mergers in the News

    The chattering classes are making much of what some claim to be a mooted prospective Liberal-NDP merger. The story is making its way onto editorial and front pages and into the priority news lineup. Is there any virtue in exploring the idea?
