Israeli foreign influence campaign must be investigated: CJPME

"Montreal, June 5, 2024 — Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) is calling on Parliament to investigate Israeli foreign influence in Canada, following the alarming discovery that Israel has been covertly targeting Canadians with racist anti-Muslim messages. "

The Media Accountability Project

National Post publishes "news" article claiming that Bethlehem isn't in Palestine

@Paul_Friesen Assuming that all Jews support the actions of the State of Israel is completely anti-semitic.

And Bethlehem is NOT in the State of Israel, although the current regime in Israel might like it to be. Bethlehem is in the Occupied West Bank.

East Jerusalem is recognized by the United Nations as being in the Occupied West Bank and thus Palestinian territory.

That, and Israel exists on territories that Palestinians were forcibly expelled from in 1948.

@Paul_Friesen Nothing that this Karen complained about in the National Post article "targets" Jews for hatred.

It simply offers a different perspective, i.e. a Palestinian perspective on that part of the world.

An Indigenous perspective on the history of Canada, the US, Australia or New Zealand would also offer a different perspective i.e. a perspective of dipossession.

Not that I've been a supporter of the CASA (I haven't), but it's long been a Conservative Party talking point that the CASA is supposedly about NDP leader Singh securing his parliamentary pension (when in fact it's mostly Conservative MP's who would secure their pensions).

The Conservative social media troll brigade is going to have to come up with a new talking point.

Pierre Poilievre Is Spreading Bullshit. Does Anyone Care?

Can we fact-check our way to better politics? Not really. But sort of. Either way, it's worth trying.

@pkw Back in the 1960's there was a dream of a worker/student alliance. With the UAW at UCLA and with the Ontario Federation of Labour at the University of Toronto, we have one.

UCLA’s Unholy Alliance

House Republicans accuse student protesters of vicious anti-Semitism, but it is administrators who are courting violence.

"White nationalists and neo-Nazis joined forces with Zionists (including some saying they were Israelis) to attack UCLA’s Palestine Solidarity Encampment, whose residents included a large number of Jewish students. The assailants were not affiliated with the university. One neo-Nazi was heard shouting, “we’re here to finish what Hitler started,” without any apparent protest from the self-identified Zionists. At least one person present has been identified as an associate of the Proud Boys."

CBC has whitewashed Israel’s crimes in Gaza. I saw it firsthand.

Working for five years as a producer at the public broadcaster, I witnessed the double standards and discrimination in its coverage of Palestine—and experienced directly how CBC disciplines those who speak out

Sticker seen at shopping centre carpark in Deer Park. Without more context it could be interpreted as anti-semitic, although the website doesn't otherwise appear to be. Does anyone know the specific context of this meme?

The IDF is telling Palestinians to evacuate Rafah where there is at least some civilian infrastructure left and to go to Khan Younis, which now thanks to the IDF is an uninhabitable pile of rubble.
