Dear Nathan Sekhon and Eric Sorensen,
I’m writing to support your October 11 segment titled “Israel-Hamas conflict: The complex history of the Gaza Strip."
It is essential to provide viewers with basic background and context surrounding the recent events in Gaza. Your segment is one of the few that try to do so. This is fair and balanced journalism, plain and simple. I hope attacks from the pro-Israel media watchdog Honest Reporting Canada do not impact your efforts to fulfill these fundamental journalistic principles.
If ever you are seeking experts or Palestinian-Canadian voices for your broadcasts, do not hesitate to reach out.
Director of Media Advocacy, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East
