Like a real life version of Kafka's nightmare. I'm well aware what happens when activists take such issues into the masters' tool of the crooked Canadian court system. A black hole of money, time and energy where sure defeat would be the certain result. Just consider the resources of the enemy. You'll only drown and die there and the issue with you.

Abby Martin & Joe Rogan on Israel's Massacre at Gaza Border
"The Israel lobby likes to come down hard on people who speak out against the crimes of Israel. As you see, this is a third-rail issue. No one's talking about it even though it's so fucking obvious. Israeli forces are sniping dead journalists and children on camera and yet the world turns a blind eye...These people are fucking sick. And we are supporting it."

...the courts must be used strategically, especially considering that they must recognize and respect international law, agreed to by Canada!
We need not win in the Courts to win......forcing the issue is enough
Sorry, been there done that. You will find the Canadian courts do not in fact recognize or respect international law. And you'll be overpowered and overlawyered by the other side, who have a powerful lobby, money and influence in and out of those courts. But best of luck to anyone with the money, time and lawyers willing to pursue it. Perhaps the same community that opposes sending all that money back to Israel might be willing to back such a venture?

JNF is %100 Israel: jnf.ca."
No such fund for the children 'these heroes' are blowing the legs off in Gaza unfortunately. What an obscenity that such a thing is permitted and encouraged by Canada with tax deductible receipts no doubt...

Canada's Silence On Israel's Crimes Isn't Surprising
Silence. That one word has defined Canada's response to the summary execution and maiming of hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza lately by Israeli thugs, otherwise known as soldiers, perched comfortably behind makeshift hills meters away in Israel.

Israel's Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi Makes Historic Visit To Canada
"...Eretz Yisrael is 'the heritage of all of the Jewish nation' which was promised to it by God....Montreal was his first stop before he went on to Ottawa and Toronto, in conjunction with the '70 Torahs for 70 Years' project, which is run by Mizrachi Canada. In honour of Israel's 70th anniversary, the organization has been collecting dozens of dormant Torah scrolls from Jewish communities across Canada.
They will be sent to Israel to be refurbished, rededicated and donated to Israel Defence Forces (IDF) bases...Beth Zion's Rabbi Baruch Perton said, the project expresses 'a true partnership between the Canadian Jewish community and Israel, particularly the IDF, which he described as the most moral and ethical army in the world..."
Israel's Policy of Deliberately Maiming and Crippling The Maximum Number of Unarmed Demonstrators is Met with Silence
"...It is now clear that these Palestinians demonstrating peacefully as is their legal right against Israeli occupation, were targeted by snipers using rifles equipped with powerful telescopic sights such that accurate hits at 200-300 meters can easily be acheved...These bullets open up on impact, inside the victim's flesh and bone, thus causing maximum damage. Videos taken by Israeli soldiers through the telescopic sights are known to be greatly celebrated within Israel and not only amongst members of the IDF..."
Celebrated also in Canada if the JDL and the IDF-loving rabbis quoted above @ #61 are any indication. Why is the power of this xenophobic, ultranationalist Israel lobby being allowed to flourish and raise millions of dollars for Zionist causes with impunity here? Wake up Canada. Shut them down! These Zionist ghouls are maiming and murdering their besieged and trapped Indigenous victims before our very eyes!

The Dark Side of Israeli Independence
"...Each May 15, Palestinians solemnly commemorate Nakba Day. Nakba means catastrophe and that's precisely what Israel's independence has been for the more than 700,000 Arabs and their five million refugee descendants, forced from their homes and into exile, often by horrific violence, to make way for the Jewish state.
At its core, Zionism is a settler-colonial movement of white, European usurpers supplanting Arabs they often viewed as inferior or backwards. Theodore Herzel, father of modern political Zionism envisioned a Jewish state in Palestine as 'an outpost of civilization opposed to barbarism.'
Seventy years later...the world is no closer to solving the 'Palestinian problem'. Meanwhile, Jews, Arabs and the wider world brace for the next inevitable explosion. This is colonialism's deadly legacy."

"Mass protests are expected to continue next week with the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem on 14 May, the 70th anniversary of the declaration of the state of Israel on Palestine's lands. Israeli military has 'begun reinforcing battalions exponentially in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank'.
The leadership of the Gaza protests has called for a Million Person March of Return next week. The Palestine Human Rights Organizations Council called on the Palestinian Authority to 'immediately cease cooperating with the US as an arbiter for peace', and for states to halt aid to israel and impose sanctions until it ends its annexation and unlawful prolonged occupation of the Palestinian territory, ceases all breeches of international law and ensures justice and accountability..."

'TERRIBLE MASSACRE': ISRAEL KILLS 41, Injureds 1,700 Gaza Protesters as US Embassy Opens in Jerusalem (and vid)
"Forty-one Palestinian protesters have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations ahead of the US embassy inauguration in Jerusalem. The Palestinian health ministry said Monday more than 1700 protesters have been injured in Gaza so far on what has been the most violent day of the six week long Great March of Return. Those wounded include 74 children and 23 women, according to the ministry.
The Palestinian government denounced Monday's violence as a 'terrible massacre perpetrated by the forces of the Israeli occupation and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths."
Killing Gaza - by Chris Hedges
"Israel's blockade of Gaza - where trapped Palestinians for the past several weeks have held nonviolent protests along the border fence with Israel, resulting in more than 50 killed and 700 wounded by Israeli troops - is one of the world's worst humanitarian disasters.
Yet the horror that is Gaza, where 2 million people live under an Israeli siege without adequate food, housing, work, water and electricity, where the Israeli military routinely uses indiscriminate and disproportionate violence to wound and murder, and where almost no one can escape, is rarely documented..."

"Israeli occupation forces have killed 58 Palestinians in Gaza on Monday as tens of thousands protested along the eastern perimeter of the territory. Monday's death toll is likely to climb higher as 70 were in critical condition and Gaza hospitals struggled to triage the staggering number of casualties. The health ministry reported nearly 2,800 injuries - almost half of that by live fire.

Norman Finkelstein on Israel's 'Murderous Assault on Nonviolent Protesters' in Gaza (and vid)
"Ask yourself a very simple question. What word would you use to describe a situation where two million people are trapped in an area that's physically 'unliveable?' That's not my language, that's the language of the UN.
They're physically trapped in an area that's unliveable and in which they're being poisoned. So, faced with that reality, the people of Gaza saw no option...They're not trying to 'penetrate a border'. They're trying to break free from a concentration camp. They're trying to break free of a ghetto. They're trying to break out of a prison. That's poisoning one million children.
Does Israel have the right to poison one million children? If it doesn't have that right, it has no right to use any force. Case closed. Full stop.
It has one right.
The right to pack up and leave."
Do not 'Walk With Israel' 2018. It cannot be. It must not be. No to JNA!
That is correct. Under international law today–following a terrible decision by the International Court of Justice–heads of state and foreign ministers have diplomatic immunity while there are in office. But that is not going to apply to the head of the CIA.
I have a whole dossier here against Bush, Jr. and the rest of them for the extraordinary rendition program. We scared him out of Switzerland over that. A Swiss prosecutor demanded that Bush be prosecuted if he showed up in Switzerland. I know that Amnesty International and the Center for Constitutional Rights also have extensive dossiers against high-level US officials involved in these torture programs, including Haspel. She would be a sitting duck for international human rights lawyers. The evidence is there.
We have a 600-page executive summary of the Senate Foreign Intelligence Committee’s report on the extent of torture and extraordinary disappearances by the CIA. This is an official US government document. She was not personally named in there, but she was a high-level official who was personally involved. She certainly supervised the operation in Thailand. Under international law, there is a command responsibility. She is denying that she herself physically tortured anyone, but she supervised others doing the torturing. Under international criminal law, she is accountable for the criminal behavior she oversaw.....from Francis Boyle
...the point here is the power of Court action!
Activists must take on the violators of humanity through the courts, not to deny the power of direct action...
records must be kept of Canadian political statements, such as that of our Minister Freedland...we do have a powerful Act in Canada to punish terrorists and their complicit intellectuals.....This must be used and threatened to be used!
