Independent Jewish Voices condemns Jason Kenney's attack on free speech

Independent Jewish Voices (IJV) Canada is demanding that Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Jason Kenney apologize and retract his defamatory statement in which he condemned Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) and its organizers as anti-Semitic.

IJV Canada is a proud sponsor of IAW. Does the Minister believe IJV Canada is also anti-Semitic?

Palestinians in Israel: Life under Apartheid

Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy

Palestinians in Israel: Segregation, Discrimination and Democracy

by Ben White
(Pluto Press,
2012;
$24.97)

Ben White's insightful analysis of the Palestinian people's plight in Israel depicts politics based on racism, a split between citizens and nationals and a deep insight into repetitive stereotypes which serve to instil a false depiction of cultural traditions against a backdrop of Jewish superiority.

Israeli Apartheid Week

A controversial poster from anti-israeli apartheid week

Though the first Israeli Apartheid week started on January 31, 2005 in Toronto, the awareness week now commonly kicks off the first week of March. Since then it has spread around the world and is observed in March.

Why Apartheid?

United Nations investigators, human rights activists and critics of Israeli policy have been comparing the treatment of Palestinians comparable to the treatment of black Africans during South African Apartheid for years. Apartheid was originally created as a legal term and involves a list of crimes against humanity.

Why the NDP silence on Palestine?

Israeli Apartheid Week

As pronouncements on Palestinian statehood at the UN are fiercely debated around the world, on the ground in Palestine the violent realities of Israeli military occupation and apartheid continue without reprieve.

In Canada, despite broad international support for peace with justice in Palestine, illustrated by the growing boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, Palestine has in recent years seldom been highlighted as a foreign policy priority by the NDP. The subject, for instance, has only rarely been mentioned in the current NDP leadership race.
