Today CBC.ca published an article that described Israeli policies of collective punishment in the West Bank. This is a good thing, and is rare indeed for CBC.
CBC deserves praise for this article, but still it should be noted that they pulled their punches by not clearly stating that Israeli collective punishments are in breach of international law, and that Canada should condemn Israel for them.
After all a Canadian Parliament that can condemn Canadians for supporting BDS, a campaign of non-violent resistance, could take a few minutes to condemn international war crimes by Israel.
