  • Palestinian Popular Resistance

    Middle East

    Tens of thousands of Palestinians have joined demonstrations taking place in dozens of cities across historic Palestine and in refugee camps in neighbouring Arab countries. Palestinians continue to struggle for their fundamental rights of freedom, self-determination, equality, and a right to return.

  • Goodbye Canada, Hello Harperland

    Canadian Politics

    The defeated ogre, licking his wounds, finds little comfort from his hawkish “best friend”, despite his love for Israeli birds for whom he helped raise more than ten million Canadian dollars to build a bird sanctuary in the Promised Land.

  • Israel Key Link in Exporting ISIS Oil

    Middle East

    Thirty thousand barrels of oil a day. $19 million a month. That’s apparently the revenues that are flowing to the Islamic State. Its oil exports flowing through Turkey. And now and investigative report accuses Israel of being one of the principal middlemen for Islamic State oil.

  • ‘Most-read’ article at Washington Post calls Israel ‘savage, unrepairable society

    Middle East

    But how do you just end the occupation? You don’t. The Jim Crow south didn’t end Jim Crow. You need outsiders to help you. Governments have done nothing of course. So that means civil society, and the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

  • Uri Avnery on Israeli Racism

    Middle East

    The gruesome lynching of the dying Haftom was totally ugly, totally detestable. It could lead one to despair of Israel – If it were not for one anonymous middle-aged bystander, who returned to the scene two days later, retelling the story on TV, admitting that he could not sleep since then – and weeping.

  • 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?

    Labour

    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.
