Israel lobby continues to stoke anti-Iran animus

In recent years Israel has assassinated Iranian scientists, sabotaged its cyber facilities and backed opposition groups. The nuclear armed state has also repeatedly bombed Iranian targets in Syria. Yet the mainstream media and our government never criticizes Israel’s effort to destabilize a regime that offers some resistance to its domination of the region. Instead, Canada...

Canada’s terrorist list actually enables terrorism

On Friday Israel launched its latest outburst of violence against Gaza. Over 72 hours at least 44 Palestinians, including 16 children, were killed.

Time to end Canadian taxpayer subsidies for Israeli apartheid

How foreign policy shaped election outcome

  The Canadian foreign policy status quo won Monday’s election. Of course, when it came to international and military affairs the vote had little upside.

Charities Fund Israeli Apartheid

Charities that promote racism against Palestinians, illegal West Bank settlements, the armed forces of another country and racial/religious purity in Israel are subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Incredibly, people of conscience are being forced to launch legal complaints with the Canada Revenue Agency to end these subsidies that violate their policies. There are as many as...
