Yes, Canada Arms and Funds Israel
In mid-December Canadian diplomat, Robin Wettlaufer, representative to the Palestinian Authority, criticized Electronic Intifada editor Ali Abunimah for stating that Canada “arms and funds the apartheid state.” Wettlaufer responded by writing “we neither arm nor fund Israel.”

Following this, Abunimah and others provided evidence of Canada arming and funding Israel, from direct weapons sales to components of US deliveries to subsidizing charitable donations.

Join a discussion with Ali Abunimah, Karen Rodman, Yves Engler and Jonathan Kuttab to hear about the ways Canada arms and funds Israel.

Moderated by Bianca Mugyenyi, CFPI

Organized by the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute.
Co-sponsored by Just Peace Advocates.
