Israel, Canada and Me in the Age of Trump: panel discussion
Apr 02, 2017 at 04:18 PM

Has the United States abandoned the two-state solution to peace in the Middle East or is it still on the table in one form or another? Does the United States condemn Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and the Occupied Territories or does it approve of them? In the Age of Trump these questions are not easy to answer, as one sifts through evasions, equivocations, half-truths and lies. How should we as Jewish Canadians feel about the ascendancy of Donald Trump? What are the strategies we should adopt in order to deal with the coming storm?

Four Jewish panelists will discuss these and other issues in an event, 'Israel, Canada and Me in the Age of Trump,' to be held at the Peretz Centre for Secular Jewish Culture (6184 Ash Street ) on Sunday, April 9 at 1:00 PM.

Protesters tell Deltaport to “free Palestine” and block the boat

They say the boat has links to Israeli war crimes

http://www.news1130.com/2014/09/06/protesters-tell-deltaport-to-free-palestine-and-block-the-boat/

DELTA (NEWS1130) Sept. 6 2014 – A group of activists are protesting the expected arrival of an Israeli ship at Deltaport.

The group is promoting the message of “Let Gaza Live and free Palestine.”

The boat is operated by ZIM, which protesters say is connected with the plight of people in Palestine and they think it’s wrong that a company involved in the warfare should profit by using local ports.

John Turnbull is one of the demonstrators and is hopeful the message will be effective. “As worker said, ‘this should be done all around the world.’ Workers at Delta are just as aware of the news as the rest of us are and are just as concerned about it.”

Similar demonstrations have been successful in Oakland, California.

The boat is due to arrive at 11 a.m. tomorrow.
