Canada and Israel: Building Apartheid
From The Media Co-Op, a project of The Dominion News Cooperative:
Yves Engler spoke in Vancouver about his new book “Canada and Israel: Building Apartheid” From yvesengler.com This book is the first critical primer about Canada’s ties to Israel. It is a devastating account of Canadian complicity in 20th and 21st century colonialism, dispossession and war crimes. The book documents the history of Canadian Christian Zionism, Lester Pearson?s important role in the United Nations negotiations to create a Jewish state on Palestinian land, the millions of dollars in tax-deductible donations used to expand Israeli settlements in the West Bank and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service ties to Israel?s Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations (Mossad).
I myself had the pleasure of seeing Engler speak about his new book and this topic on March 6th here in Kitchener-Waterloo as part of the week’s Israeli Apartheid Week events. This is a topic that is simply not discussed enough, even here in Canada, so spread this video around to as many people as you can, and pick up a copy of Engler’s book.
