  • On Palestine: A brief but essential update

    On Palestine is based upon a paradigmatic historical understanding of the ethnic cleansing of 1948, when more than half a million Arab people were forced from their homes to make way for a Jewish state. This understanding “clarifies” the connection between Zionist political ideology and the movement’s policies in the past and present.

  • Death of a Candidacy

    Canadian Politics

    Morgan is a good advocate for challenging the apolitical apathy in youth culture which is so detrimental to NDP fortunes. So why did the party throw their candidate for Kings Hants under the bus with the 2015 campaign just a few days old?

  • No room for anti-Israel commentary in Canadian politics

    Canadian Politics

    In an international context, it would now appear that Canada has the least control of any G7 country over its own foreign policy. Bizarrely, no matter who wins the upcoming election, Canada’s Middle East policy now seems to be firmly based on Likudist agendas.

  • What about Palestinian academic freedom?


    If Palestinians’ academic freedom is to be valued as it is for Israelis, then a boycott of Israel state sponsored research and teaching is justified until the forces that deny academic freedom for Palestinians no longer exist. This cannot occur until the colonialization of Palestine comes to an end.

  • Why I Support the BDS Movement Against Israel

    Human Rights

    The fight for the Palestinians is our fight. If the Palestinians are not liberated none of us will be liberated. We cannot pick and choose which of the oppressed are convenient or inconvenient to defend. We will stand with all of the oppressed or none of the oppressed. And when we stand with the oppressed we will be treated like the oppressed.

  • Canada’s bloody political consensus on Israel and Palestine

    Canadian Politics

    The all-party consensus on Israel/Palestine is a consensus on slaughter, a consensus written in blood. It operates on silence, fear and half-truths and only by speaking up can we end it.

  • ‘Heightened scrutiny’ of Mulcair should include foreign policy

    Canadian Politics

    The irony is that if Ibbitson and Maclean’s had been paying even fleeting attention, they would have noticed that many New Democrats concluded long ago that Muclair is a lassiez-faire social democrat with a cosmetic allegiance to core NDP values, particularly on foreign policy issues.

  • The Harper government and the ethnic cleansing of Palestine

    Canadian Politics

    The Harper government is aiding and abetting the Nakba or ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians through its stance and policies, reflecting the ‘new anti-Semitism’ trend that every Canadian tax payer and voter holds responsibility for directly or indirectly. It is time for Canadians to engage in the highest form of citizenry by saying “no” to the Harper government.

  • Kathleen Wynne: Please refuse ‘honour’ from Israel lobby group

    Canadian Politics

    It is far from acceptable for CIJA to uncritically support the behaviour of the Israeli government and military against Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza and within its borders — behaviour which human rights experts around the world have repeatedly identified as criminal.

  • US Rebukes Israel While Showering it with Arms and Favors

    Middle East

    Netanyahu is too experienced a politician to take Hotovely’s advice fully to heart himself. Having briefly spoken his mind to ensure he won the recent general election, he has now walked back a comment much criticised by the White House that he would never permit a Palestinian state.
