The Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) is a human rights organization that explicitly recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to national existence and to live in security. We condemn all violations of human rights. PAJU was co-founded in Montreal by Bruce Katz, a Jewish Canadian and Rezeq Faraj, a Palestinian Canadian who have been friends for more than 25 years. Our group is comprised of Jews, Palestinians and other Canadians of good conscience who work together to promote peace in the Middle East and to educate the public on the Palestinian question.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 900, May 11, 2018: Canada's silence on Israel's crimes isn't surprising

Canada has always been silent when Israel decides to kill as many Palestinians as it wants to, for any reason.

by Andrew Mitrovica 8 May 2018

Silence.

That one word has defined Canada's response to the summary execution and maiming of hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza lately by Israeli thugs, otherwise known as soldiers, perched comfortably behind makeshift hills meters away in Israel.

Canada remains silent while Israeli snipers continue to murder Palestinian children. Canada remains silent while Israeli snipers continue to shoot Palestinian children in the head and legs with"butterfly" bullets - meant to kill instantly and disfigure irrevocably - for waving Palestinian flags on what remains of Palestinian soil.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 899, May 4, 2018: Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They’re not in school

Israeli soldiers have killed four Palestinian children during the #GreatReturnMarch protests in the occupied Gaza Strip since March 30. Every sniper shot is approved, & recorded, Israeli officials say.

Mohammed Ayoub was the last to be killed: last Friday at 4:30 PM.

Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett was asked on Sunday if Israel had not gone too far when it killed Ayoub, as Orly Noy reports at +972:

Army Radio morning show host Razi Barkai asked Education Minister Naftali Bennett if “we had gone too far” in killing 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub during the Gaza Return March protests.

Paju's Vigil: Friday May 4 2018, from 12:00 to 2 PM at the CBC building 1400 René-Levesque East

PAJU held a protest vigil at the Radio-Canada/CBC building on Friday, April 27, 2018 to denounce the coverage of Radio Canada and CBC vis-a-vis the massacres in Gaza.

On those rare occasions that our public broadcaster shows the killings in Gaza, we are ‘spared’the details such as the fact that Israel has confirmed that its snipers have been ordered to shoot Palestinian children,that Israel targets and shoots journalists, et cetera.

The term 'confrontation' is used to describe a situation where the massacre of unarmed civilians is the real truth. We will once again be in front of the Radio-Canada/CBC building, René-Lévesque Boul., corner Panet on Friday, May 4th, from noon to 2 pm! Come join us (metro Beaudry).

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 898, April 27 2018: Stephen Hawking : Physicist and Palestine supporter

S.Hawking who died this week was not only a brillant physicist but also aware of the tragedy of Palestiniens. Hawking made headlines in May 2013 when he decided to boycott a high-profile conference in Israel where he was scheduled to speak. The physicist was working at the Cambridge University in the UK at the time. The Presidential Conference, an academic event held in Jerusalem, was being hosted by the late Israeli President Shimon Peres.

In a letter Hawking sent to the organisers on May 3 he explained :"I accepted the invitation to the Presidential Conference with the intention that this would not only allow me to express my opinion on the prospects for a peace settlement but also because it would allow me to lecture on the West Bank.

Come and denounce the Radio-Canada/ CBC’s woeful coverage of the massacre of Palestinians and the virtual whitewashing of Israel regarding the murder of Palestinians by Israeli snipers in Gaza during the Great March of Return. 41 Palestinians have been killed to date, an Israeli general has confirmed that Israeli snipers have been ordered to target and shoot children, Israeli snipers have been targeting and shooting journalists. Where is the CBC/Radio-Canada coverage?

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 896, April 13, 2018: ISRAEL CONTINUES TO MASSACRE THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

BDS-QUÉBEC PRESS STATEMENT

Supported by the indifference and complicity of our governments,

ISRAEL CONTINUES TO MASSACRE THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

Gaza, March – April 2018: Proud, alienated by more than 10 years of an unlawful, illegitimate and inhumane blockade of the Gaza Strip, virtually locked up in a cage, a real open-air prison, peaceful protesters in Gaza commemorated Palestinian Land Day and undertook the Great March of Return. The repression of the Israeli army is nothing less than carnage: already thirty dead and over 3000 injured, and it is not over!

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 895, April 6, 2018:Gaza is Soweto revisited

Israel has turned Gaza into Soweto - while Israel has become South Africa - circa 1976.

by Andrew Mitrovica

This column isn't a "rant". It's the truth. And, like me, countless people, in countless places, aren't going to be polite or agreeable any longer to describe - using blunt, simple language, rather than jargon-laced, diplomatic embroidery - the truth about how Israel has turned Gaza into Soweto - while Israel has become South Africa - circa 1976.

Countless people, in countless places, remember when South African policemen - turned willing executioners in service of a dying apartheid regime - shot and killed scores of unarmed black students who marched defiantly in defence of their freedom, dignity and land on June 16, 1976.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 894, March 30, 2018: In the occupation, slapping a soldier is worse than killing a Palestinian

By Jonathan Ofir

On Monday in Israel there were two parallel events:

1) The Israeli military appeals court denied Ahed Tamimi, 17, the request of an open trial on charges stemming from her slapping an Israeli soldier occupying her home last December 15, claiming a closed trial was “in her best interest”.

2) The Israeli military parole board further shortened Elor Azarya’s prison sentence for shooting an incapacitated Palestinian suspect in the head at point blank-range, killing him in 2016, to 9 months, after the army chief of staff had reduced the original 18 month sentence to 14 months.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil # 893, March 23, 2018: Palestinian women are defying Israel even as Israel jails them

By Lisa Gleeson

If we are serious about using International Women’s Day, held annually on March 8, to campaign for the freedom and equality of women and girls, then we should not ignore Palestinians.

The violence and discrimination that women all over the world experience is worsened in Palestine by Israeli occupation and apartheid practices that affect all Palestinians — but women disproportionately. One example of the violence of Israel’s occupation is its treatment of women Palestinian prisoners.

Boycott Hummus Sabra


Boycott products at Adonis

MARCHÉ ADONIS 2173, rue Ste-Catherine Ouest, Montréal, QC, CA.

Dear Mr. Naaman Aboud,

Le 18 juin 2015

It has come to our attention, as well as to some other members of our organisation who shop at Adonis, that you currently stock Sabra hmmus, a product of the the Israeli company named the Strauss Group which has “adopted” an elite IDF unit. The company’s website has boasted of providing the Golani Brigade “with an ongoing variety of food products for their training or missions, and provide personal care packages for each soldier that completes the path.”

The Strauss Group has also said it gives funds to the IDF unit for “welfare, cultural and educational activities, such as pocket money for underprivileged soldiers, sports and recreational equipment, care packages, and books and games for the soldiers’ club.”
