This week marks the launch of a cross-Canada lecture tour by renowned Israeli history scholar, Ilan Pappe. Pappe is currently a professor at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter, and is the author of many books dedicated to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, most notably, 'The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.'
 
His Canadian tour, 'The False Paradigm of Peace: Revisiting the Palestine Question' is sponsored by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME) and concludes this Saturday, May 5th with double-header engagements in Victoria and Vancouver; the first being right here at the University of Victoria's David Strong auditorium at 12 noon.

Tom Woodley is the President of the CJPME, and joins us in the first half.
 
 
And; According to the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade, or COAT, there are more than 16 million Canadians sharing responsibility for Israeli atrocities because we have been, quote: "[F]orced to invest [...] retirement savings in corporations with varying degrees of complicity in Israel’s system of apartheid, its occupation of Palestinian lands, its military/"security" industries, and its aerial bombardments of Lebanon (2006) and Gaza (2008-2009)." COAT is behind a campaign to get the CPP and its nebulous investment arm, the CPP Investment Board, to cease war profiteering and divest from arms and "security" companies all together.

Richard Sanders is founder and coordinator of COAT and serves as editor to its publication Press for Conversion. Richard Sanders and stripping the CPP's war portfolio in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV radio broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us newz from the city's streets and beyond. But first, Tom Woodley and The False Paradigm of Peace: Revisiting the Palestine Question with Ilan Pappe.

Last week, Israel commemorated its Independence Day. The 64th anniversary of the founding of the modern state was not universally celebrated of course, coinciding as it must with the expulsion through murder, terrorism, and the "ethnic cleansing" of the indigenous population living on lands claimed by the Zionists.
 
Commemoration of that unhappy occurrence, known to the Palestinian people as the Nakbha, or catastrophe, is illegal within Israeli controlled territory; perhaps considered a threat and criminalized by the occupiers because it is not an event marked by an annual holiday and air shows, but an everyday reality lived, remembered, and resisted still by its survivors.

And; regardless of which side of the Israel-Palestine issue Canadians fall, they all contribute to, and profit by the on-going conflict. This is thanks to the CPP, or Canadian Pension Plan. The CPP invests heavily in companies and countries buying and selling the arms and ammunition feeding the perpetual warfare economies of the world, and as legally obligated participants, all working Canadians are a party to the orgy of blood and misery this trade necessarily engenders.

According to the Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade, or COAT, there are more than 16 million Canadians sharing responsibility for Israeli atrocities because we have been, quote: "[F]orced to invest [...] retirement savings in corporations with varying degrees of complicity in Israel’s system of apartheid, its occupation of Palestinian lands, its military/"security" industries, and its aerial bombardments of Lebanon (2006) and Gaza (2008-2009)."
