Please help us thank Evan Dyer and CBC for an article about Canada following the US and UK in imposing sanctions on violent Israeli settlers. This article gives a complete, critical, and accurate picture to explain why Canada might not follow the US, the UK, and the EU’s decisions. The article provides a comprehensive picture of the increase in settler violence in the West Bank. While media has been devoted to the situation in Gaza, it is nice to see a good article shed light on the situation in the West Bank.
- The article quotes a diverse range of sources to give a balanced overview of the whole situation.
- The article mentions how people in the Israeli government are right-wing, such as National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir. This is important information to mention to understand what other factors hinder the end of settler violence and settlements and how, on the contrary, they have accelerated.
- The article gives an overall picture of the situation in the West Bank: forced removal, deaths, raids, attacks, and how Palestinians are convicted in military tribunals.
- Dyer mentions Canada’s tendency since 2015 to vote against the UN motion that calls for the Fourth Geneva Convention in the Occupied Territories and an end to settlement construction. He also mentions how Canada rejects cases brought by Palestinians against Israel in the ICC. Dyer also brings up the fact that Canada has allowed Israeli settlements to raise funds in Canada and claim tax returns, which is against Canada Revenue Agency policy. Lastly, Dyer discloses Trudeau's overruling of a Canadian Food Inspection Agency decision to label products made in the occupied West Bank as “Made in Israel.”
It is important to encourage Evan Dyer and CBC to write more articles in this spirit.
