Video: Double Standard: Canada’s terrorist list, the IDF, Palestinians and the case of Khaled Barakat

Watch this video of this discussion on 13 May, hosted by the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute and Just Peace Advocates, on Palestinian writer Khaled Barakat and the targeting and criminalization of Palestine. Speakers Khaled Barakat, Yavar Hameed and Miko Peled explore the issue from legal and political perspectives. The following description, from CFPI, highlights the primary themes of the event:

“Listen to a discussion about the National Post and Israel lobby’s recent attacks against Palestinian Canadian activist Khaled Barakat and the Samidoun Palestinian prisoner solidarity network. The event will explore how Canada criminalizes Palestinian political life through its terrorist list while supporting the violent Israeli military. More than 10 per cent of the groups on Canada’s terrorist list are from a long-occupied land with one tenth of one per cent of the world’s population. Organized by the Canadian Foreign Policy Institute and Just Peace Advocates. Media sponsor: Canadian Dimension”
