The November 13th attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead, were a grave tragedy, and exist only in the context of a greater continual process of violence and war in which France, NATO, the US and Canada have been central to such horrors. When Francois Hollande declared that “we are at war”, it was quite accurate but what had been left out, is that France has always been at war against those it seeks to oppress and dominate.

In recent months, coverage of Syria in much of the western mass media has been focused on the “refugee crisis”. Certainly, the movement of hundreds of thousands of people- most of them from Syria – to Europe is among the signal events of the human experience in the contemporary period. Yet, the media story of the Syrian refugee migrations is often seriously incomplete. It is often a story of how this population movement will affect conditions in western states – demographic, political, social, economic – and about how, why and whether western states can and should respond.
In the wake of the brutal killing of 18 month of old Ali Dawabsheh, the Canadian Palestinian Foundation of Quebec (CPFQ) is calling a demonstration to condemn settler violence, the occupation and PA complicity.
On July 31st, Israeli settlers from Ma’ale Efraim firebombed the Dawabsheh family home in Douma and spray-painted nationalist and racist graffiti on a neighbouring home. This occurs against the backdrop of ongoing violence against Palestinian communities, including the torching of olive groves, damaging of civilian cars, attacks on Mosques, churches and religious institutions, as well as frequent physical assaults against Palestinian civilians.
A presentation by Houda and Dror reflecting on the political scene in France in the weeks after the shooting attacks at Charlie Hebdo magazine. Dror will offer some critical reflections on the relationship between the French left and Islamophobia, speaking specifically about the historical dynamics around Charlie Hebdo magazine. Houda is going to give a general perspective on Islamophobia in France and how the so-called “anti-terror” legislation impacts the fundamental human rights, especially of marginalized and racialized communities, specifically Arabs and Muslims.
