On Friday Israel launched its latest outburst of violence against Gaza. Over 72 hours at least 44 Palestinians, including 16 children, were killed. More than 300 Palestinians were injured while many more lost their homes, businesses or other property.

Time to end Canadian taxpayer subsidies for Israeli apartheid
Amnesty International’s recent conclusion that Israel is committing “the crime of apartheid against Palestinians” should galvanize opposition to Canada’s most significant form of support for the “apartheid” state. Some 200 registered Canadian charities raise over a quarter billion dollars a year for projects that directly or indirectly subjugate Palestinians. Through tax receipts and other tax benefits the government subsidizes up... Continue Reading →
Time to revoke charitable status from group funding Israeli military
The Canadian Zionist Cultural Association (CZCA) was caught supporting a foreign military in violation of charity law. But it’s unclear if the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will apply its rules to the Israel focused registered charity. In the summer Palestinian-Canadian refugee Khaled Mouammar and Rabbi David Mivasair submitted a formal legal complaint to the CRA... Continue Reading →
‘Charities’ push Israeli university-military ties

More than 150,000 letters have been sent to Canadian officials calling on Ottawa to criticize Israel human rights violations or to sanction Israel. Tens of thousands have also taken to the streets to denounce Israel's... Continue Reading →
Canada celebrates agents of Palestinian misery
Canada is celebrating the agents of Palestinian misery. Last month the Canadian Embassy in Tel Aviv held an event to celebrate Canadians fighting in the Israeli military. They invited all 78 Canadians in the IDF to the ambassador’s residence to demonstrate their appreciation. Referring to non-Israelis who join the IDF, ambassador Deborah Lyons told the...

Kinsella’s silence on JNF racism speaks loudly
What do you call someone who says they head an antiracist organization, but claims to be ignorant of an explicitly racist institution they’ve publicly defended? I have no idea, but I do know Warren Kinsella confirmed the central point of my recent article titled “The Left’s racism problem concerning Israel”. In a series of threatening... Continue Reading →
