Jeff Halper: "Israel/Palestine: Towards Peace or Apartheid

Monday, January 19, 2009 - 00:00

Israel has committed a new massacre against the besieged people of the Gaza strip. 360 Palestinians were killed and many more injured during the first three days of bombing. In the wake of this unprecedented violence, the Israeli government has mounted an "emergency PR campaign" to legitimize these war crimes. The Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs has described this wanton killing as "Israel's right to defend itself." Concerned Canadians need the information to cut through the spin and learn what is really happening on the ground in Israel/Palestine...

Halper will present the political situation and look at various options for resolving the conflict; two states, one state--bi-national or democratic, or a regional confederation.

We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
