MAP ALERT!: Gazette article about SPHR's protest is a mouthpiece for pro-Israel propaganda

MAP ALERT!: Send a letter to National Post criticizing Stephen Harper's anti-Palestinian op-ed

The article morally defends Israel, suggesting that while Israel “could have incorporated all Palestinian territory long ago,” it hasn’t.

Robert Walker, the author of this op-ed, is a staffperson at a pro-Israel lobby group. Authors of op-eds aren’t held to the same standards as authors of news stories, so we don’t expect the Ottawa Citizen to force Walker to “change” anything in his op-ed.
