What do Stephen Harper and Scarlett Johansson have in common? | Feb 7 2014 | Corey Levine | What do Harper and Johansson have in common? Well the SodaStream controversy and Harper's trip have galvanized supports of Palestine and the BDS movement.
Jason Kenney: Up the SodaStream without a paddle? | Feb 6 2014 | Waleed Ahmed | Jason Kenney recently tweeted about his support for SodaStream and his buycott, also insinuating that Oxfam supports BDS of Israel. Not only was his wrong about the latter, his conduct is appalling.

Yes, Mr. Harper, it is possible to criticize Israel without being anti-Semitic | Jan 27 2014 | Gerry Caplan | According to Stephen Harper, criticism of Israeli policies is the "new anti-Semitism." When Israelis call Israel an apartheid state -- as many do -- are they anti-Semitic too?

Harper's adoring trip to Israel was embarrassing for Canadians | Jan 24 2014 | Rick Salutin | So Stephen Harper finally got his Birthright trip to Israel. Good for him, even if he pushed the 26-year-old cut-off date. And it ended as such emotional excursions should.

Harper's big show in Israel silent on human rights | Jan 23 2014 | Alex Neve, Béatrice Vaugrante, Yonatan Gher | Harper's recent spectacle seemed to cement his relationship with Israel during his recent visit. How disappointing that Israel's human rights shortcomings did not make it to the show.
