  • Campaign to revoke the Jewish National Fund of Canada’s Charitable Status

    Canadian Politics

    The campaign to revoke the JNF’s charitable status serves an important educational purpose. Drawing attention to the organization is a way to discuss the racism intrinsic to Zionism and it also exposes the progressive language that has masked Israeli colonialism. Additionally, the JNF campaign highlights Canada’s contribution to Palestinian dispossession.

  • Pacifying Palestinians and Pacifying the World

    Middle East

    Yet whether we think of Syria as the paradigm of twenty-first century warfare or the Israeli matrix of control, it is “the people,” or a mobilized segment, that is being victimized. Halper’s book does the best job so far of depicting this new cartography of warfare, and deserves to be widely read and its main theses debated.

  • Dear Justin Trudeau: Don’t Buy Into Israeli Exceptionalism

    Canadian Politics

    We ask you to resist the false alarm that your Zionist friends sound when they cry “anti-Semitism!” as the proverbial boy might cry “wolf!” For those who do so are robbing a horrendous historic episode of its gravity, confusing legitimate dissent with genocide. Criticism is not Kristallnacht; challenges to the occupation are not the gas chambers.

  • Liberals’ shameful BDS stand gives carte blanche to Israel

    Canadian Politics

    Justin Trudeau and his government could not be more mistaken if they believe they are doing Israel a favour by supporting the repugnant Conservative thought crime resolution. Every time a Western government turns a blind eye to Israeli apartheid it reinforces that system by signalling to Netanyahu that he can do whatever he pleases.

  • The Canadian Jewish Establishment Favours Anything But Debate

    Middle East

    It may come as little surprise that the marginalization of dissident Jewish voices pervades the entirety of organized Jewish life in Canada. From Jewish community newspapers and community centres, to the organizations purporting to speak on behalf of Canadian Jews, engaging in reasoned debate on the issue of Israel and Zionism simply cannot happen.

  • 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.
