As Jews, We'll Never Address Racism While Clinging To Zionism

"...Of course none of the Jewish voices commenting on George Floyd in Minneapolis have had a word to say about the killing of Eyad al Halaq or the 21 other killings (so far) this year by Israeli security forces. For our establishment Jewish spokespeople, the death of Eyad al Halaq was, at best, an unfortunate mistake on the part of the Israeli border police. For them it remains a security issue not a race issue.

Our Jewish community leaders and the organisations they represent, are incapable of making the necessary race connection because they are trapped in an ideological bind. That ideological bind is called Zionism. It's a bind which makes you see the actions of the State of Israel through the prism of Jewish history and Jewish security while blinding you to any competing perspectives that could disrupt your Jewish centric outlook. It's impossible..."

57 MPs have signed the CJPME pledge to oppose annexation. From an email I received in the last hour:

Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East wrote:

* Signed on behalf of entire BQ caucus (32 MPs)

Here is the pledge these principled MPs are supporting:

As a Member of Parliament, I understand that Canada has a responsibility to stand up for international law and human rights. For this reason, the Canadian government must show meaningful opposition to the annexation plans recently announced by Israeli leaders. I call on the Canadian government to consider all reasonable diplomatic and economic options to stop annexation and prompt Israeli compliance with international law. Canadians deserve a Parliament that is willing to oppose Israeli annexation plans.

We commend signatories for taking a stand, but we are also worried that too many MPs have declined to join their voice.


Unfortunately,  asking Ottawa to ask Israel to close the annexation barn door after that horse has pretty much already  bolted probably won't be of much use now. Too little too late [#608]. Nor will Canada's  new UN Ambassador for Israel, Bob Rae. Also, let's have the names of all those who didn't sign, so we can ask them why, like Jagmeet Singh...

I suspect this letter by Canadian  liberal Zios including Bob's wife will probably carry more weight:

Liberal Zionists Fear Bibi's Proposed 'Annexation' of the West Bank Risks International Support For Zionism

"Many liberal Zionists in Canada (and US Jews) have expressed concern over Israel's aggressive plan to 'annex' up to 30% of the West Bank, in defiance of international law and international opinion. They fear that Israel is overreaching, and by making it clear that it has no interest in giving the Palestinians a state, western support for the idea of a Zionist state for Jews might be at risk..."


Israel Chops Off 200 Olive Trees in Deir Istiya

"...The mayor of the village, Saeed Zeidan told QNN that 'the occupying authorities have in the last two months intensified its settlement and land-grabbing activities in addition to the demolition notices and tree uprooting. He stressed that the Israeli army has uprooted thousands of the village's fruit trees since 1967. Zeidan noted that the Israeli army dug a water well to steal water from the village and provide illegal settlers with other 280 million cubic meters of water, depriving the village and all villages around of water."

Just another day of Canada-backed Palestinian genocide/ecocide our new UN Amb. Bob Rae will work hard to see continue.

How freaking depressing.


 A seemingly never-ending viciousness Canada supports and the world permits to continue...

"Israeli Occupation Forces invaded the home of and arrested Rania Elias director of the Yabous Cultural Centre, one of the most important Palestinian cultural centres in Jerusalem and her husband Suheil Khoury, the director of the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music."


The Epidemic and Hizbullah Add to Netanyahoo's Problems

"The Israeli government under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahoo faces two crises. Hizbullah, the Lebanese resistance organization, has announced [it will] take revenge for one of its soldiers Israel killed. A botched handling of the COVID-19 epidemic by the government has come under much criticism. Together with the criminal proceedings against Netanyahoo, either could lead to his fall..."


"In the last few days alone, Israel dropped bombs on Syria, opened fire on Palestinian fishermen in Gaza, and today bombarded villages in Lebanon, all in unprovoked attacks. And not even a peep from the international community..."

'But China! But Russia!'


Final Toll of Two-Day Israeli Offensive on Gaza

"Pitiless zionist entity slaughters another 27 human beings in Gaza, Palestine."

 Canada supports. Canadians avert their eyes and curse China/Russia instead.


"Palestinian children in Jerusalem cry 'Where will we live?' as their house is bulldozed in front of their eyes in the middle of the night. This is child abuse. Israel has bulldozed hundreds of Palestinian homes this year so far..."

Settler-states are like that. Canada supports. How could it not?


"Israel is now bombing Gaza to celebrate 'peace' deal with UAE. Eastern and northern areas are under heavy attacks from Israeli warplanes."

For Israel everything is permissible by 'the international community' aka 'the rules based order'.


"This is the greatest advancement toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last 26 years, marking the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation, after Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994). I believe we will soon see more Arab countries join this expanding circle of peace...I want to thank President Trump for his critical help in brokering this historic accord and want to thank him for his revolutionary vision for peace pan, which is the most realistic formula for peace in the region." - Netanyahu -

Jonathan Cook: How the Israel-UAE Deal Puts the Bogus Peace Industry Back in Business

"Washington, Israel and the Gulf States want to sharpen the Middle East's battle lines. The Palestinian issue was in the way. In short, this is a peace process in which Arab states, led by the UAE, formally join Israel in waging a war on Palestinians. Joe Biden, the Democratic challenger, has also excitedly jumped on board..."


"Gaza's only power station will shut down tomorrow, leaving most residents without electricity. No more fuel to power it after the Israeli occupation banned diesel deliveries - another form of collective punishment. Israel has been bombing Gaza for 8 consecutive nights in a row."

Just imagine if it was the other way around. Even you might speak up and say something...

Because they can.


"If any people other than the Palestinian people were bombed for eight nights in succession by any air force other than the Israeli Air Force, it would be all over the Western media."

'But Russia/China!'


The Israeli Army Doesn't Have Snipers on the Gaza Border It Has Hunters

"I brought in seven-eight knees in one day.' 'In a few hours, I almost broke his record.' 'He got around 28 knees..."

The inhumanity of this is almost inpossible to understand."

As is the wilful indifference of the citizens of Toronto who permit the Israeli consulate to recruit Canadians for the IDF right out of their downtown consulate. STOP SUPPORTING ISRAEL!!!


Two Million Palestinians in Gaza (55% below 16 yrs) Kept Hostage by Israel

"The narrative of Israel is indeed concentration camps...building and running them."

With Canadian support. Why? Stop.


Israel is Bombing Syria Again (and vid)

"Media silence of course. Because if you covered how often the Israeli occupation bombs Syria, you'd lose count and it would quickly become clear who the aggressor is."

Pariah terror-state Apartheid Israel continues to 'delegitimize' its existence all by itself.


'I Was Almost Paralyzed': Palestinian Pensioner Invokes George Floyd as he Recalls Israeli Soldier Kneeling on his Own Neck

"What came to my mind during that moment was the American policeman who killed the Black citizen in the United States.' Hanoun, whose luck was better than Floyd's said the brutal technique, that has been used against other Palestinian protesters, is reckless in the extreme. 'If you step on his neck you are trying to kill him,' the pensioner stated baldly..."

Brutal Zionist Apartheid,  racism, occupation and white supremacy. Canada supports.


Bahrainis Decry Betrayal as King Does Deal With Israel

"Peace for peace,' means, in effect, that Israel is getting fully normal relations in exchange for nothing. The deal was sealed when Saudi Arabia 'gave the green light' to Bahrain, Walla reported. Al Khalifa was the most brazenly pro-Israel Gulf official even before any Gulf state established formal relations with Israel. Al Khalifa regularly cheers for Israel's attacks on countries in the region, defends Netanyahu and downplays Israel's oppression of Palestinians. Bahraini social media users took to Twitter on Friday to protest their government's normalization with Israel using hashtags 'Bahrainis against normalization' and 'Normalization is a betrayal'..."


"While the White House was celebrating signing tghe 'normalization' agreement between 'Israel', UAE and Bahrain last night, Gaza Strip was being intensely bombarded by Israeli occupation jet fighters."

"Building bridges between Israeli startups and Canadian capital!"


Settler states stick together like shit on a blanket.


'Settlement group received donations from mysterious offshore companies'

"One hundred million dollars in donations from a single evil [Zionist] asshole is underwriting the ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem's Palestinian population. Now we know the name of that evil asshole Roman Abramovich."

When will donations from similarly  supportive evil Zionist ethnic cleansing assholes in Canada be prohibited? When will the Canadian government stop doing their bidding in its support for Apartheid Israel?


Israel's refusal to grant/renew visas to UN OHCHR highlights the urgent need to end Israel's impunity

"On 15 October 2020, it was reported that Israel is refusing to grant or renew visas to employees of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights."

Bob 'the Zio' Rae is at the UN. He gets on very well indeed with Israel too. Perhaps he can have a word?

Israel to Confiscate 3,000 Acres of Palestinian Land in Occupied Jordan Valley

"The Israeli occupation authorities are planning to confiscate almost 3,000 acres of Palestinian land in the northern Jordan valley region of the occupied West Bank in order to expand illegal Jewish settlements, Wafa news agency has reported. The Jordan Valley makes up about one third of the total area of the West Bank. Roughly 650,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal settlements built in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem since 1967. All of Israel's settlements and outposts are illegal under international law..."

Israel is (Again) Pushing for War on Iran

"There is a campaign to push US president Donald Trump into attacking Iran before he leaves office. It is likely that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahoo, with the help of Secretary of State Mike Pompous, is the brain behind it. While Israel has the capabilities to attack Iran it would never dare to do so without explicit US backing. Iran has responded to the Israeli campaign by highlighting that any attack on it would escalate into a wider war..."

Worlds Apart: Richard Falk - Much About Nothing? (and vid)

"If there's one area where Donald Trump will leave a lasting mark, it's in the Middle East. Under his leadership, US policy has shed its last pretension of balance or law-abidance, coming out as unabashedly pro-Israel. And while the Democrats have spared no means ridiculing and condemning Trump's legacy, are they likely to correct the course? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law and practice and former UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.


Jonathan Cook: Antisemitism claims mask a reign of political and cultural terror across Europe

"...What we see here is an illustration of a principle at the heart of Israel's state ideology of Zionism: Israel needs antisemitism, Israel would quite literally have to invent antisemitism if it did not exist. This is not hyperbole..."

MUST READ deep dive by Jonathan Cook on the weaponization of  antisemitism shit-storms and the weakness of Western politicians to resist them.


Israel is going to keep on killing Palestinian boys, until US Jews endorse BDS

"...The Jewish community is a central part of the liberal/Democratiic Party coalition, and that portion of the Jewish community that cares about Israel is by and large Zionist. [North]* American Jews don't feel touched by what Israel is doing to Palestinians in their name. Just some of the younger ones. There needs to be a crisis if only for the sake of Palestinian children..."

* "Israel is the heart and soul of Canadian Jewry in general and of the Toronto community in particular, and in fact is the strongest source of unity among Candian Jews - and a central element in Jewish identity here...The Jewish community in Canada is more conservative and sympathetic to Israel than the United States..."

"The new [US] COVID relief bill contains $500,000,000 for Israel..."

Fearing the Palestinian narrative: Why Israel Banned Jenin Jenin

"On January 11, the Israeli Lod District Court ruled against a Palestinian filmmaker, Mahmoud Bakri, ordering him to pay hefty compensation to an Israeli soldier who was accused along with the Israeli military, of carrying out warcrimes in April 2002, in the Palestinian Jenin refugee camp located in the northern occupied West Bank.

To ban a film, regardless of how unacceptable it may seem from the viewpoint of the official authorities, is wholly inconsistent with any definition of freedom of speech. But to ban Jenin Jenin, to indict the Palestinian filmmaker and to formally compensate those accused of carrying out warcrimes is outrageous."

As outrageous is Canada's continuing all-party support for the genocidal criminal regime that is Apartheid Israel. It is in fact an obscenity and must end just as Canada's unconscionable support for Apartheid South Africa did. Help make it happen. Stop voting for its political supporters. Enforce BDS now.

Jenin Jenin

Fuck Israel - and all who support it!


The International Criminal Court in The Hague approved on Friday the prosecutor's request to open legal proceedings against Israel and Hamas on suspicion of committing war crimes in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.


'Three decades after his death, Kahane's message of hate is more popular than ever'

Nathan J. Robinson tells the story of how he was recently fired as a columnist on U.S. politics at The Guardian. His offense was to have posted a tweet joking about the amount of military aid the U.S. gives Israel. It is a perfect example of Chomsky's analysis of how capitalist media enforce a party line on their writers without admitting what they are doing. Fortunately, Robinson is the editor of the left wing magazine Current Affairs, so he was able to publish this account in a way that most journalists could not.

I suspect he might think it small consolation for losing the ability to reach a larger audience.


When Israel is compared to apartheid South Africa, it suggests to many Israelis a South African one state solution with a Palestinian (Mandela) as president. Palestinians would be a majority as were non-white non-European South Africans and Jewish Israelis would no  longer live in a Jewish-majority state.  It would be a return to the minority status they had in the Christian states of Europe like Germany and Poland and Russia.  They didn't do too well for all those centuries, especially the 20th. Something might be worked out, though.



I hate theocracies like Israel and Iran. Religion has no place in any determination of who has citizen rights except the right to practice your own delusion in peace.
