Tadamon! call to support the World Social Forum Free Palestine, August 2012.

Tadamon! collective is calling on Palestine solidarity activists in Québec and Canada to support the upcoming World Social Forum Free Palestine, taking place in Fall 2012, in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

A global expression of solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for freedom, supported by social movements in Brazil, is essential at this critical moment in history and will build constructive organizational support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israeli apartheid.

“Occupied Palestine is part of every free heartbeat in this world and her cause continues to inspire solidarity across the globe,” states the International Coordination Committee for The World Social Forum Free Palestine, describing the event as “an expression of the human instinct to unite for justice and an echo of the World Social Forum’s opposition to neo-liberal hegemony, colonialism, and racism through struggles for social, political and economic alternatives to promote justice, equality, and the sovereignty of peoples.”

More Dishonest Rhetoric from Honest Reporting Canada

Tadamon! Collective 2012. More Dishonest Rhetoric from Honest Reporting Canada

Photo A protester flies the Palestinian flag at the start of the regular protest n the village of Nil’in to demonstrate against land confiscation and the separation wall.

In a recent piece entitled “The Apartheid Myth: HRC Responds to Tadamon!”, Honest Reporting Canada (HRC) took issue with a letter written by Jewish members of the Tadamon! collective. HRC’s principal contention is that the letter (“Don’t Conflate Judaism with Zionism,” Wednesday, January 12, 2012) in the McGill Daily “recycled the tired Israeli Apartheid canard” while putting forth compensatory rhetorical arguments that “lack[ed] in substance.”

This disingenuous tactic of dismissing factual arguments critical of Israel as “canards,” so as to avoid the responsibility of earnestly responding to their content, is both cowardly and insincere. While Tadamon! offered specific examples of several Israeli laws and policies (out of the thirty or so) that discriminate against Palestinians, HRC offered no comment on these legal instruments of apartheid. Furthermore, HRC’s response is filled with inaccuracies and dubious statistics, most of which are themselves “recycled” from questionable sources.
