EI: Israel Lobby Pressures U of T to Rescind Scholar Hire


"Interference by a Canadian tax court judge - affiliated with a major Israel lobby group - highlights the ways outside individuals and Zionist orgs aim to shape academic instruction to shield Israel from criticism and accessibility. My newest."

Zionization continues apace.


Canadian Defenders For Human Rights: CD4HR


"Abuse of the Jewish religion to promote war, ethnic cleansing and Apartheid Israel."

Why are these disgusting Zionist organizations permitted to continue? Why do Canadians permit their politicians to support/ attend their awful racist, warmongering events? Stop supporting Zionism. Stop supporting Apartheid Israel!


Canadians Should Not Be Recruited To Fight For the Israeli Army


"...This is the backdrop to a legal complaint and open letter delivered today to Justice Minister David Lametti opposing the recruitment of Canadians for the Israeli military. Signed by Noam Chomsky, Roger Waters, former MP Jim Manly, filmmaker Ken Loach as well as poet El Jones, author Yann Martel and more than 50 others, it calls on the federal government to apply the Foreign Enlistment Act to those recruiting Canadians to fight in the Israeli military.

But the Trudeau government has shown little interest in potential violations of Canadian law. As the letter notes, Canada's ambassador in Tel Aviv, Deborah Lyons invited 78 Canadians in the IDF to her residence in January for a pizza party. She praised the soldiers as 'a particularly special group' and told her guests 'we at the embassy are very proud of what you're doing.'

A Canadian ambassador celebrating Canadians fighting for another country's military is bizarre. As the open letter points out, the IDF has shot a number of Canadians in recent years. It is clear that Canadians should not be recruited to enforce Israel's occupation. The letter calls for 'a thorough investigation to be undertaken of those who have facilitated this recruiting for the IDF, and if warranted that charges be laid against all those involved in recruiting and encouraging recruiting in Canada for the IDF.' The ball is now in Lametti's court."

Clearly Canada's ambassador to Israel Deborah Lyons would be a good place to start in the investigation. Those here with Green or  NDP MP connections  should insist that this matter be raised in the House of Commons, if there's anyone left there who's up to it. A thoroughly disgusting state of affairs this continuing appalling subservience to Apartheid Israel and its lobby.


Controversies at U of T Law, York University Highlight Escalating Suppression of Moderate Voices Criticizing Israel


"...While the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has long been a flashpoint on campuses across Canada, legal experts and advocacy groups are raising concerns that these recent incidents suggest an escalation of silencing even moderate critiques of Israel, and not just in the halls of academia, but in the media, the political sphere and social interactions. In a recent article on 'pro-Israel cancel culture' Professor Emeritus Larry Haiven of St Mary's University in Halifax listed more than two dozen examples of campaigns against those who critique Israel or support Palestinian rights here."


Canadian Zionization continues apace. A now well established and deeply entrenched Apartheid Israel lobby must be tracked, traced isolated and destroyed just as Apartheid South Africa's was here. It is a developmental task for the Canadian left to begin to take this much more seriously. Things have deteriorated to such a degree that even the word 'Palestine' cannot be spoken on our own national broadcaster the CBC, while Canadian IDF members can be publicly feted and openly congratulated by our ambassador to Israel. Our shameful official servility to Israel is now known and flagged worldwide. We lost a UN Security Council seat largely because of it, and it's long past time Canadians demand this disgraceful state of affairs be ended.  Israel's lobby and fund-raising organizations, pro-Israel representatives and friends in political parties and the government is a good place to start. Down with Apartheid Israel. Free Palestine!


Israel Is A Racist Endeavour


"Now the Ford Tories have adopted [ Order in Council] the anti-Palestinian IHRA definition of antisemitism we might as well start as we mean to go."

Zionization continues apace. 'But Russia!' 'But China!'


New Tory Leader Pledges Close Ties to Jewish Community


"Erin O'Toole says that he will refuse 'to take part in LGBTQ+ Pride parades that admit floats from BDS supporters.' Ahaha okay sure."

Attn: BDS don't miss any of those parades. Let him 'Walk with Israel' instead.


Write Letter to the Ontario NDP Regarding IHRA


"...To vote in favour of a Bill that silences people is problematic. Please write to ONDP leader Horwath and her caucus, as well as the  ONDP executive and ask them to publicly condemn the IHRA definition and revoke the Order in Council.



Please tell the ONDP to resist, not collaborate with Zionist silencing and Israeli Apartheid. Israel is a racist endeavour!


When will @theJagmeetSingh and @NDP finally act on @r_garrison shameful support for IHRA def'n of anti-semitism? Anti-semitism must be fought hard like all hate speech but not by silencing solidarity with Palestinians. Where does @NDP stand?



Good for him to ask. Unfortunately, we already know the answer as does Svend. They don't stand. They kneel.


"The IHRA's flawed definition of antisemitism poses a direct threat to freedom of expression, and now Doug Ford's government has approved it for Ontario."


Zionism advances apace.

Justin Trudeau Taps Top Israel Lobbyist to Police Speech in Canada


"Justin Trudeau taps Irwin Cotler, the Canadian version of Alan Dershowitz, as de facto anti-Palestinian czar. Cotler will lead the center-left government's assault on free speech and policing of Palestinian solidarity organizing."

Zionist power advances apace.


Israel's Growing Strategic Threat to our Freedom of Speech


There is an old saying that you should not put the fox in charge of the chicken house. It makes perfect sense, and yet that's exactly what Western governments are increasingly starting to do...Not only is Israel a military dictatorship and a Jewish supremacist state. In fact that is the reality of Zionism...(see also #113)


The Quebec National Assembly has adopted a resolution that
Reaffirms the immutable support of Quebec for a negociated solution between the two parties which includes the self-determination of Palestinians and the creation of a viable state and the necessity for Israel to live in peace inside recognized borders.
Adopted Nov 29 without débate. Proposed by Raba Ghazel of the Quebec Solidaire Party


"Seventy-six Canadian MPs are members of the Canada-Israel Friendship Group. The Vice-Chairs of the group are David Sweet of the Conservative Party and Randall Garrison of the NDP. The Group's noble mission is to promote deeper ties between Canada and an apartheid state."


Zionized from sea to shining sea.


Stop Illegal Israeli Military Recruiting in Canada


The campaign to stop illegal Israeli military recruitment in Canada is ramping up and on February 3, we are co-sponsoring a webinar featuring MP Mario Beaulieu, AL-Haq's Aseel al Bajeh, lawyer John Philpot and Rabbi David Mivasair. Check out this newly released video detailing Israeli military recruitment in Canada. Join 600 others who have already sent a letter to the RCMP Commissioner to demand an investigation into illegal Israeli military recruitment."


"Over 80 British parliamentarians have called on Israel to stop the dispossession of Palestinian familes in East Jerusalem, or face diplomatic consequences, in a letter to Foregn Secretary Dominic Raab."


Forward to your own MP suggesting Canada do the same.


"Global Affairs Canada acknowledges that Israel's annexation of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights (Syria) are illegal, but Foreign Minister Marc Garneau has not denounced these annexations. Rather, Mr Garneau limits himself to 'unequivocally condemning' America's official enemies."


Sounds like some babblers we know.


CIJA: Breaking News - Press Release: Jewish Groups Appalled...


"The Board of Deputies of British Jews and CIJA appalled that disgraced former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn invited to spread toxicity in Canada."

Perhaps Stephen Bronfman, Bob Rae, Irwin Cotler, Tony Housefather etc. can have a word with Justin 'Canada will always have Israel's back' Trudeau,  to see if there's anything he can do. After all, Canada successfully kept George Galloway out of Canada for his Palestinian advocacy a few years ago after a few phone calls from the JDL to Tory minister friends.

PS Any word from Jagmeet Singh about this yet or is he in hiding hoping to avoid the obnoxious unpleasantness this extensive and pernicious lobby is so well known for. What would Hill & Knowlton suggest I wonder? Let's see if we can smoke him out to stand for Jeremy shall we?

Free Palestine! Fuck Israel!

'New for 2021 from the Govt of Canada: With Israel in your heart consider holding it within your RRSP as well.'


"And then there's this: Why can one purchase Israel bonds with the TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account)? ANY other country's bonds have this status?"

Because we're Zionized from sea to shining sea. WTF!? This is outrageous, unacceptable and must be prohibited ASAP.  STOP subsidizing Israeli apartheid and Palestinian genocide Canada!

'Jewish National Fund of Canada: Building Israel Together'


"The Jewish National Fund in Canada is apparently re-branding to distance itself from the colonization of the West Bank. I'm not sure if the new logo really sends the right message."

Loud and clear actually...


Government Officials Question Ex-Ambassador to Israel's Office Space, Private Meetings


"...She basically set up a mini-embassy outside the embassy,' said one government official. 'It was highly unusual. Senior government officials who spoke to RadioCanada/CBC said they often perceived Bercovici as more of a spokesperson for the Israeli government than the ambassador for Canada. Senior government officials say Bercovici often met with Israeli government representatives without her Canadian embassy advisers present..."

laine lowe laine lowe's picture

At some point in the mid to late 1990s, Ambassador positions were passed out like lollipops to favoured business and academic people. Prior to that, getting an ambassador position was part and parcel of a long-term career in external affairs/foreign affairs. In some countries, the whole "embassey and staff" of past were replaced by selecting a locally established successful Canadian who became the official "representative". It's no wonder that we find ourselves with "ambassadors" who just do their own thing.


Black and Jewish Leaders Unite in the Fight Against Racism, Hate and Antisemitism


"To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, two of Canada's most influential social justice advocacy organizations The Black North initiative and the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights have issued a call to Canadians to end racism and discrimination in all its forms. This partnership embodies the essence of that initiative and the need to act against systemic racism, antisemitism and discrimination in all its manifestation.

'As Minister of Justice I launched the first ever Justice initiative against racism and hate,' said Professor Irwin Cotler, Founder and International Chair of the Raoul Wallenberg Centre.

'Our cause is strengthened by our solidarity together.'

Please contact Hill + Knowlton Strategies..."


"A Toronto hedge fund agreed to pay up to US $11 million to an Israeli investigation firm in a scheme that led to a sting designed to discredit a respected Ontario judge. Black Cube is staffed by ex-members of Israel's military and spy agency, the Mossad."


Canada has a serious problem with malign Zionist interference in its affairs.


'The Rank Hypocrisy of Justin Trudeau's Government is on Full Display Again'


"For decades Canada's government has acknowledged that Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights is illegal [And genocidal], but Canada has not imposed a single sanction on Israel throughout that time."



Palestinian Advocacy is Not 'Terrorism': Mondoweiss


"Israel's Defense Minister Benny Gantz declared that he was adding the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network to Israel's 'terror list'. Despite a lack of concrete allegations, Canada is considering doing the same."


2021 NDP National Policy Convention


"The proposed policy urges the NDP to adopt the recommendations of the Canadian Labour Congress, Amnesty International and countless other human rights groups and leaders who have observed and bore witness to the Palestinian struggle. We are calling for:

  1. And end to Canada's support for illegal settlements; and
  2. Suspending the flow of weapons to and from Israel until Palestinians are free.

I hope that gets traction.


Singh is asked about Israel and Palestine.  He talks about anti-Semitism.

The CBC reporter was basically asking him how he is going to stifle debate at the convention. Democracy is such an honoured thing in Canada.


Another fake left leader for Apartheid Israel. NDP = No Difference Party.


When the correction is just as bad.

Sometimes you can miss the opportunity to fully answer a question. I missed one here. Here’s what I should have said: it’s not enough for New Democrats to just express concern about the occupation and settlements.




While the House interview was appalling, Singh’s anti-Palestinian record is long-standing. In the summer he refused to endorse a pledge, supported by 70 MPs, to oppose Israel’s plan to annex the Palestinian West Bank. During the 2019 election the party leadership blocked a half-dozen candidates from running partly or entirely because of their support for Palestinian rights.



From Above: For those dippers who would prefer to avert their eyes...

"...Singh's response to the CBC represents an over-the-top bid to appease CIJA, which has been running an aggressive campaign to pressure the NDP leadership to suppress debate...

Singh and his [Hill & Knowlton] handlers know he went too far in appeasing those promoting what Israel's leading human rights group B'Tselem recently dubbed 'a regime of Jewish supremacy from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.' This is apartheid.'

It will be interesting to see what the NDP leadership is prepared to do to  block members from debating widely supported pro-Palestinian resoutions at the convention. Hopefully Singh's House interview riles up delegates to aggressively challenge the NDP leadership to do what's right..."


The present pro-Zionist, pro-Apartheid, anti-Palestinian position of the NDP is an abomination in a party that pretends to be a 'progressive' parliamentary party. This unacceptable status quo must be confronted and changed. Don't follow the leaders. Resist don't collaborate.

"People have pointed out a lot of problems with Jagmeet Singh's response, but the worst part I think it that it doesn't address the main issue: Singh went on national radio and gave the impression to the entire country that it is antisemitic to support Palestinian human rights."


It isn't...

Report: 85% of detained children were subject to physical violence


"In a report issued marking Palestinian Children Day, Defense for Children International (DCI) reported on Sunday that 85% of Palestinian children, detained by the occupation state, were subject to physical violence during their detention."


EI: Jagmeet Singh's Cowardice on Palestine Sparks Canadian Backlash


"The NDP leadership has let Palestinians down too many times. Singh's effort to make Palestinians disappear altogether has only ensured that the debate over Canada's support for Israel's crimes and abuses will be sharper than ever."


Israel's refusal to cooperate with International Criminal Court (ICC), indirect admission of war crimes, says Euro-Med Monitor


"In a statement issued on Thursday, Euro-Med Monitor said it 'believes that the Israeli decision stems from its knowledge that the Israeli army had committed violations that may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, which explains their attempts to not cooperate with any international investigations and avoid accountability.'


'For Israeli Independence Day' (and vid)


"For Israeli Independence Day, Justin Trudeau attacks those who criticize Israeli human rights abuses and condemns BDS (while lying that it attacks Jewish Canadians). Because it's not enough to celebrate an Apartheid state, he must also punch down against Palestinians."

Perhaps this will help Stephen Bronfman out with Liberal Party donations too. Scroll down for IJV 's helpful translation.


UK Labour: Just another fake left party leadership for Apartheid Israel(and vid)


"Another day, another example of the routine brutality of the apartheid state of Israel. UK Labour are apologists for this rogue state, Sir Keir Starmer says he supports Zionism without qualification and people like me get suspended [thrown under the bus by Jeremy Corbyn in an act of attempted appeasement] for speaking out against this Israeli abuse.' - Chris Williamson


Stephen Harper joined ex-spymasters in company investing in Israeli security tech


"Former prime minister Stephen Harper is working with former leaders of three major intelligence agencies - the Mossad, the CIA and MI5 - in a Canadian private investment company. AWZ Ventures invests in Israeli cybersecurity, intelligence and physical security technologies. A glance at the company's website shows that, along with the former prime minister, AWZ has assembled an impressive list of leaders from the counter-intelligence and business world..."

A message to Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau from a Palestinian in Exile


"As a Palestinian exile, Khaled Mouammar asks Canadian PM Trudeau some very important questions about Canada's attitudes towards the apartheid policies of Israel

'Shockingly, on April 15 you stated that Canada stands proudly with apartheid Israel and you condemned the campaign waged by Canadians to impose sanctions on apartheid Israel similar to the sanctions imposed against apartheid South Africa. How could you...?"

Protesting Canadian Support for Illegal Israeli Military Recruitment


"Can anyone imagine major Canadian institutions flouting the law to recruit young white people to join apartheid South Africa's brutal military in the 1980s? But that's exactly what's happening with the recruitment of Canadians for the military that enforces Israeli apartheid. More than a few taxpayer-subsidized groups flout Canadian law to induce young people to move 10,000 kilometres to add their boots to the many already choking Palestinians..."


WATCH: This is the face of the Israeli police and these are the Palestinians who take the punches. This is 'United Jerusalem' where there's no accountability for Palestinians who get attacked. Today I'm teaching the First Intifada. 30+ years later, still the same.'


Clearly Zionists have far more influence over your politicians than you do Canucklhead. Planning to do anything about that? Or keep pretending and averting your eyes to this disgusting support your settler-state gives to theirs?

Stop supporting Israeli Apartheid!

No Moral Cover for Israeli Apartheid: CBC Zionist Collaborators


"It's time to investigate CBC's selective reporting on Palestine. In the last week there have been racist mobs on the streets of Jerusalem and the release of a landmark report labelling Israel an Apartheid State. All major Canadian news outlets covered these events except CBC. " [thread]

PS Remember also Indigenous broadcaster Duncan McCue - forced to publicly apologize on-air for daring to utter the word 'Palestine', then disappeared anyway by CBC.

Stop Supporting Apartheid Israel!

Escalating violence in East Jerusalem as a result of the ongoing illegal occupation is deeply troubling. The demolitions, forced removal of Palestinians from their homes, and blocking access to popular gathering spots must end.




The threatened evictions of Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah of East Jerusalem during the holy month of Ramadan - or any other day - is deeply troubling. Illegal occupation, demolitions, and forced evictions must end.




Both Singh and Harris are NDP con artists and longtime supporters of Israel. This is an indication however that the ongoing barbarity of Apartheid Israel, coupled with the sustained critcism and hard fought activists pushing the NDP on this, have forced these tweets. Or did Joe Biden say something first?

'Don't Be Satisfied With Tweets!'


"Don't be satisfied with tweets! These are politicians. They will do the bare minimum they think will mollify you. Don't take yes for an answer and always demand more!"

Stop supporting Apartheid Israel! Stop IDF recruitment in Canada! No more 'Free Trade' with Israel! Zionism is Racism!
