The Trifecta of Anti-Racism

Yes, Canada Does Arm and Fund Israel


Along with the usual trend each December of Canada voting with Israel, the USA and a couple of small countries beholden to the US, opposing most pro-Palestinian resolutions at the United Nations, it has also been an embarrassing time for the Canadian government with its Foreign Affairs minister and its two top diplomats in Ramallah and Tel Aviv all making anti-Palestinian comments.

Canada’s top diplomat in Ramallah claimed that “we neither arm nor fund Israel.”

In December 2021, Canadian diplomat, Robin Wettlaufer, representative to the Palestinian Authority, criticized Electronic Intifada editor Ali Abunimah for stating that Canada “arms and funds the apartheid state.” Wettlaufer responded by writing “we neither arm nor fund Israel.”

Following this, Abunimah and others provided evidence of Canada arming and funding Israel, from direct weapons sales to components of US deliveries to subsidizing charitable donations.
