Progressive Canadians Must Challenge Jewish National Fund's (JNF) Charitable Status
Progressive Canadians Must Challenge JNF's Charitable Status - by Yves Engler
"Last month, Greg Selinger, the New Democratic Premier of the Province of Manitoba, and two of his ministers visited Israel. Among other things, the official delegation strengthened the longtime 'progressive' govenrment's ties to the Jewish National Fund (JNF).
The trip was a sad spectacle that should embarass every Canadian who opposes racism. Manitoba's ties to this openly racist institution are shocking, but also part of a decades old pro-Israel policy of the NDP that must be challenged by real progressives.
The Canadian branch of the JNF has been directly complicit in Palestinian dispossession...it is now time to launch a political campaign to push the Canada Revenue Agency to revoke the JNF's charitable status.."
