  • Jimmy Carter: 'Israelis' Policy Is to Confiscate Palestinian Territory'Elisabeth Braw
    December 2, 2012

    Israel and Gaza are again attacking each other, Syria is descending into civil war, four American diplomats killed in Libya: the Middle East is more fragile than ever. "Both sides should cease all hostilities," says former US President Jimmy Carter. "Israel should end its blockade of Gaza, and Western countries should work to facilitate reconciliation between Hamas and their Palestinian rival, Fatah. As long as Gaza remains isolated, the situation in and around Gaza will remain volatile."

    Israeli elections are coming up in January so it is Palestinian hunting season again. Israeli cynics call it a time "for mowing the grass."

  • Failing Grade for Carleton ReportReuel S. Amdur
    December 2, 2012

    Carleton University's effort at promoting intergroup harmony has been received on campus with something less than universal applause. The report of the Commission on Inter-Cultural, Inter-Religious and Inter-Racial relations on Campus relies on a survey of students, faculty, and employees. The Commission was chaired by former Senator Landon Pearson. An immediate issue arises with the response rate. Fewer than 12% of the students responded. Does that response rate itself tell us something? Perhaps that the concerns explored in the study were simply not salient, that people were not concerned? Then there is the question of sheer numbers. The report gives particular attention to Jews. Yet there were only 29 Jewish employees and 28 Jewish students in the sample.

  • The Enemy Within?Reuel S. Amdur

    Back in 1971, President Richard Nixon's special counsel Charles Colson compiled an enemies list, a list of people Nixon did not like. John Dean, another Nixon counsel, explained the purpose of the list-"how we can use available federal machinery to screw our political enemies." Well, it appears that the Harper government has its own enemies list, with Cindy Blackstock having a strong presence on the list. Why might that be?

  • Tory Immigration Snake OilReuel S. Amdur

    It was some years ago when Bill Davis was Premier of Ontario that I attended a program put on by Toronto Muslims to acquaint people, thought to be of authority or influence, with the Muslim community and its wants and needs. I was invited because I was the Unitarian in a group representative of the various religions working on a broadly based book of prayers and readings for the Toronto Board of Education, a book to replace the sole reliance on the Lord's Prayer in opening exercises in the schools.

  • The Palestinians' only optionAlan Hart
    December 2, 2012

    In the final countdown to the UN General Assembly vote on recognition of Palestine as a non-member state, the PLO has indicated that it's expecting "a pleasant surprise"; it being the number of European countries which will not do Zionism’s bidding on this occasion and will vote for the resolution. Victory for the Palestinians in this forum can be taken for granted, and it will help to further isolate the Israel of Netanyahu as a pariah state, but... It won't be, can't be, a substitute for a viable strategy to secure justice for the Palestinians.

    The recent Palestinian-Israeli conflict raises old issues but they all are ignored by the Western media, Western politicians and Zionist Jews.

  • Gaza: Never ending aggression by Zionist IsraelThe Canadian Charger
    November 21, 2012

    On November 19, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) issued a press release in which it expressed alarm about the lack of a call by political parties for a cease fire in the Gaza conflict, noting that only the Liberals had done so, "almost as an afterthought," since the substance of the Liberal's statement focused on Israel's security concerns. "We should be advocating diplomatic solutions and cease fires and not excusing violence as a way to resolve differences," said CJPME President Thomas Woodley.

  • Are we Canadians the 51st American state?The Canadian Charger
    November 21, 2012

    The final chapter of Yves Engler's The Ugly Canadian sums up Canada's role in the world today as America's errand-boy and PM Harper's government as a right-wing, militaristic, ideologically and theologically driven outfit always ready to look after the interests of powerful corporations in particular and the rich in general.
