PAJU - Palestinian & Jewish Unity

Go to content | Go to menu | Help - Accessibility | Site Map | Version française

The Palestinian and Jewish Unity (PAJU) is a human rights organization that explicitly recognizes the right of the Palestinian people to national existence and to live in security. We condemn all violations of human rights. PAJU was co-founded in Montreal by Bruce Katz, a Jewish Canadian and Rezeq Faraj, a Palestinian Canadian who have been friends for more than 25 years. Our group is comprised of Jews, Palestinians and other Canadians of good conscience who work together to promote peace in the Middle East and to educate the public on the Palestinian question.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #909, July 13, 2018: Robert Fisk: The 'ultimate deal' that Jared Kushner is proposing for Palestine would strip the people of all their dignity

Is there no humiliation left for the Palestinians? After Oslo, after the “two state solution”, after the years of Israeli occupation – of “Area A” and “Area C” to define which kind of occupation the Palestinians must live under – after the vast Jewish colonisation of land thieved from its Arab owners, after the mass killings of Gaza, and Trump’s decision that Jerusalem, all of Jerusalem, must be the capital of Israel, are the Palestinians going to be asked to settle for cash and a miserable village? Is there no shame left?

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #908, July 6, 2018: No Medical Treatment for Wounded : Ship fired at

Organisers of the voyage, called Break the Siege committee told Al Jazeera the captured boat went as far as 14 nautical miles (26 km) when Israeli forces started shooting towards the vessel. "We're surrounded by Israeli warships to the left, the right, to our front and from behind. We're stuck in the middle," an activist on the flotilla told reporters.

Although hundreds of people boarded more than 30 fishing boats in support of the main vessel, they did not cross the six-nautical-mile (11 km ) permitted boundary, Ramadan al-Hayek, one of the organisers of the voyage, told Al Jazeera. Israeli naval forces have intercepted a Palestinian vessel hours after it sailed off the coast of the besieged Gaza strip.

Boycott Hummus Sabra

Boycott products at Adonis

MARCHÉ ADONIS 2173, rue Ste-Catherine Ouest, Montréal, QC, CA.

Dear Mr. Naaman Aboud,

Le 18 juin 2015

It has come to our attention, as well as to some other members of our organisation who shop at Adonis, that you currently stock Sabra hmmus, a product of the the Israeli company named the Strauss Group which has “adopted” an elite IDF unit. The company’s website has boasted of providing the Golani Brigade “with an ongoing variety of food products for their training or missions, and provide personal care packages for each soldier that completes the path.”

The Strauss Group has also said it gives funds to the IDF unit for “welfare, cultural and educational activities, such as pocket money for underprivileged soldiers, sports and recreational equipment, care packages, and books and games for the soldiers’ club.”
