l.
Shows that Canada's idea of itself as a peacekeeping nation and as an upholder of human rights on an international level is as false as America's 'defenders of democracy' self-image. Can't say I'm surprised tbh, though finding out that Tommy Douglas was a Zionist was a bit of a blow. Canada's history of support for Israel extends far beyond Harper. ...more

Extremely well researched and chalk full of information about Canada’s relationship to Israel from the 40’s to present day. If you are interested in Canadian foreign policy and human rights it’s a must read.

Almost always has Canada sided with the Israeli apartheid state, never speaking out against the atrocities committed against Palestinians. It informs us about the many pro-Israeli Canadian politicians and the pro-Israel lobby groups, and turns out the Zionists are quite in force there, donating quite a lot of money to silence pro-Palestine activism. Towards the end, it gives us activi ...more
