Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu calls on the world to stop picking on the Jewish settlers
January 17, 2011

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has shown support for one of the most viciously maligned populations in the world, the Jews who live in Judea and Samaria, the heart of the Biblical lands of the modern-day state of Israel, a group of people that the prime minister says deserves to live a normal life like everyone else. Netanyahu said one of his most difficult decisions as prime minister was the decision to suspend new construction in Judea and Samaria for the ten month moratorium, a decision that almost brought down his government.

The Israeli prime minister said that this issue of Jewish settlements seems to be the make or break issue in the peace process which has brought the Jewish settlers in Judea and Samaria under unjustified attack for almost half a century.



CJPME Boycott Project Gets a Failing Grade

CJPME Boycott Project Gets a Failing Grade

This month, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) have targeted Ahava Products for boycott – as a part of the ongoing Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions campaign against Israel.

It doesn’t matter if you are Jewish or Arab, politically disinterested or a peace activist: if you are Israeli, CJPME is going to make you suffer under their boycott.

Peace will only come through regional economic prosperity, direct negotiations, and painful concessions from both sides – not through obsessive efforts to isolate the Middle East’s only liberal democracy.

Thankfully, Canadian retailers have seen through CJPME’s misleading letter calling for a boycott, and The Bay has even issued a formal statement rejecting the campaign (see below).
