Is this Canada’s last summer?

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Spanish philosopher George Santayana The best way to illustrate the assault of democratic totalitarianism on Canada is by way of historical analogy, but therein lies a problem. Learning from this particular history is a dangerous undertaking because our governments and media actively sabotage it. […]

Uniting the Global Movement for Palestine

http://palestinechronicle.com/view_article_details.php?id=19406 The old will die and the young will forget. – David Ben Gurion, 1948 (1) When I first went to Palestine in 1965, Ben Gurion’s prediction seemed plausible.  Palestinians and the Palestine solidarity movement were nearly invisible outside the Middle East.  The Palestinian narrative was not commonly heard, except among academics and specialists who […]

BDS and the Evil Veterinarian

The old adage that if you manage to offend all sides in a dispute you may be doing something right may have been invented by a misanthrope. If so, then Norman Finkelstein may be a misanthrope. Or maybe just an independent thinker who dances to no one else’s tune but the one he composes himself. […]

Liberate Al Quds and Palestine!

The Palestine Solidarity Movement: A Recipe for Kosher anti-Zionism

This is symptomatic of a wider disease prevalent in the ‘Palestine Solidarity Movement’. The Palestine Solidarity Movement, not only within the UK but across nations worldwide, is […]

But why the hell shouldn’t they? The decision to expose crimin­al­ity and bad prac­tice for […]

Down with the Tinley Park Five!

Ten people were reportedly injured, mainly […]
