In this episode, Tom and Michael talk about the six Palestinian human rights organizations that were criminalized by Israel in October. Many in the international community have criticized the Israeli government for falsely designating these groups as “terrorists,” but Canada’s response has been quiet. What makes these six organizations so threatening to Israel’s leadership? How might Israel’s “terror” designation impact human rights work in Palestine, and what is the best way for other countries – including Canada – to respond?
