A blow to the Israel lobby

A large campaign that forced the University of Toronto to re-offer a job to Valentina Azarova is a blow to the Israel lobby.

Some of those overseeing Montréal’s Anarchist Bookfair have lost the plot.

The smear campaign at the centre of Green debacle

  Last week Annamie Paul added a new chapter to her deception in service of Israeli colonialism and fidelity to Noah Zatzman.

Why do politicians align with extremist JDL?

Was he a victim of an anti-Semitic attack or a violent, racist, right-wing provocateur? On Saturday evening some 5,000 international justice minded individuals packed Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square. Dozens, maybe hundreds, within the pro-Palestinian crowd were Jewish.
