JSpaceCanada condemns in the strongest terms the efforts of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to broker a deal with Otzma Yehudit, an ultra-right wing racist party which embodies the most reprehensible elements of Israel’s political life. We equally condemn Jewish Home, another political ally of the Prime Minister, for voting to bring these elements into its own ranks instead of rejecting them in disgust.
There will be two major events in 2019 that will affect Canada’s relations with Israel — the Israeli general election on April 9 and Canada’s federal election on October 21. The results of both will be featured prominently in JSpaceCanada’s 4th Biennial Convention to be held in Toronto Nov. 2-3, 2019. Watch for the exact location and our program of stellar speakers, panelists and events, to be announced in the next couple of months. This important conference that will bring together members of progressive organizations from across Canada, the USA and Israel — so hold those dates!
