    Thank God there are some Canadians who oppose Israeli fascism and their ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

    Niki Ashton, it takes guts to stand up for the Palestinians and the cowards use it as an incorrect sign of antisemitism. I also post on Facebook and Twitter about fairness for both sides, or work to discourage musicians from blithely performing in Israel until such times Israel acts like the humane country and the fair country it can be. I also take to task the warfaring groups within Palestine, but when kids are being deliberately snipered by Israeli army members, it is wicked. Keep up your good work!

    bravo Nikki! one of the very few in Canadian politics to take a principled stand on this important issue.

    too bad our Prime Minister hasn’t the courage to stand up for what’s just and right!
