Canadian media does a lot of things poorly. Its cowardice when it comes to talking about Palestine is right at the top of the list.
We’re joined by our Palestinian friend Hammam Farah (@HumHum83) and our Israeli friend Eytan Tobin (@RabbiDieHardman) to talk about how Israel, like Canada, is a fake ass genocidal settler state.
For those who haven’t been paying attention, Israel attacked Gaza recently, killing about 250 people, including dozens of children, after provoking violence at al-Aqsa Mosque. This time something feels different. People are actually taking Palestinian perspectives seriously.
But over at Postmedia, of course, it’s business as usual. We talk about two Sun columns that regurgitate the usual Hasbara talking points about how Israel is never wrong and you’re all a bunch of anti-Semites.
It is our hope that "it's complicated" begins to be seen as an unnacceptable response for news organizations that are supposed to be informing the population about what is going on in the world.
