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?

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.

The Migron outpost, about 15 kilometres north of Jerusalem, was built on privately owned Palestinian land, a practice the court outlawed decades ago. Some Migron settlers have petitioned the court to remain in their homes. About a third of them claim they've recently bought the land where their houses stand from Palestinians.
