Former Canada Arab Federation President Accuses Israel of Human Rights Violations in Toronto Sun

Today, HonestReporting Canada (HRC) filed a complaint with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) after CTV National News aired a report last night, August 9, which wrongly claimed that Israel destroyed a Gaza cultural centre, whereas Israel contends the building was Hamas’ headquarters used for military and terror purposes. On behalf of our 30,000 subscribers, we called on CTV National News to issue an on-air corrective to remedy the erroneous and misleading statement it broadcast.

Israeli Ambassador Responds to Globe Commentator’s “Distortions” of Israeli Security Barrier. On August 3, the Globe and Mail published a commentary by Tim Marshall entitled: “Why the world is building walls” which featured several provocative photos, one of the border wall between Egypt and the Rafah Refugee Camp, in the southern Gaza Strip, while the commentary itself led by stating the following (emphasis added):  “The border wall between Israel and the West Bank is among the most forbidding and hostile in the world. Viewed from up close, whichever side you find yourself on, it rears up from the ground, overwhelming and dominating you. Faced by this blank expanse of steel and concrete, you are dwarfed not only by its size but by what it represents. You are on one side; “they” are on the other.” Read More: https://honestreporting.ca/israeli-ambassador-responds-to-globe-commentators-distortions-of-israeli-security-barrier/

HRC In Whitehorse Daily Star: “Support for Anti-Israel Sanctions is Ridiculous”. In the Whitehorse Daily Star on August 1, HRC Executive Director Mike Fegelman calls out an anti-Israel detractor for supporting a sanctions regime against Israel. See our commentary below: Joe Cormier’s support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement (BDS) is abhorrent and falls outside the Canadian consensus, where the governing Liberals, opposition Conservatives, and the NDP view it as discriminatory and counterproductive to the prospects of peace.
