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 #922, October 12, 2018: Robert Fisk spent the day with Gideon Levy, Israel’s most controversial Israeli journalist

As a persistent critic of Israel and the wickedness of its colonial land theft and its vile eatment of the Palestinians, I find myself curiously at odds with Levy – not so much because of his condemnation of journalists, but of his pessimism.

Would Israeli readers really be more interested in the death of an Israeli dog than the slaughter of 20 Palestinians?

Talk to the average young Israeli : an European waiter will speak better English.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #921, October 5, 2018: Real Madrid Honours Palestinian Icon Ahed Tamimi in Slight to Israel

Spanish football team Real Madrid found itself a new and unexpected opponent on Saturday: the Israeli government.

The La Liga and Champions League winners hosted Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi on Friday just hours before their Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid and gave her a team shirt with her name and the number nine printed on the back.

She is revered among Palestinians for her defense of her family home where two Israeli soldiers, part of the wider occupying force in the West Bank, stood armed. She was filmed slapping one of the soldiers. The soldiers had shot one of her cousins in the head with a rubber bullet one hour before the incident.

While Palestinians in East Jerusalem can vote and run in the municipal elections, they are prohibited from voting in Israel's national elections.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #919, September 21, 2018: News of the War Against Jeremy Corbyn

by Thierry Labica

In recent months, the intense war waged against the left-wing leadership of the British Labour Party over the last three years, has been on the anti-Semitism front, which Jeremy Corbyn is now supposed to have unleashed upon British society as a whole.

The three British Jewish newspapers, the Jewish Chronicle, the Jewish News and the Jewish Telegraph, published a joint editorial announcing that a government led by Jeremy Corbyn would represent nothing less than an existential threat to the Jews of Britain, meaning for all intent and purpose, that condemnation of the policy of the State of Israel invariably means hostility to Jews.

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #918, September 14, 2018: The Unrepentant Fascism of Benjamin Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a speech Wednesday at the Dimona nuclear plant, the site and symbol of Israel’s nuclear weapon capacity, and warned Iran and other regional rivals against taking Israel on.

The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are erased from history while the strong, for good or for ill, survive. The strong are respected, and alliances are made with the strong, and in the end peace is made with the strong…

"End the occupation !" PAJU Vigil #917, September 7, 2018: Censored film names Adam Milstein as Canary Mission funder

by Asa Winstanley and Ali Abunimah, The Electronic Intifada

Israel lobby financier Adam Milstein has been identified as the funder of Canary Mission, the anonymous website that aims to tarnish the reputations of US supporters of Palestinian rights.

Milstein is named as the financier of Canary Mission by Eric Gallagher, a former employee of The Israel Project, in Al Jazeera’s censored investigative film, The Lobby – USA. The Electronic Intifada is releasing segments it has obtained of the film: one shows Gallagher telling an undercover Al Jazeera reporter about Milstein’s role and the other shows Milstein talking about the need to “investigate” and “expose” critics of Israel, who Milstein believes are not only anti-Semites, but also “anti-Christian” and “anti-freedom” activists who “terrorize us.”

Montreal, July 23rd, 2018

''“We have passed this law to prevent any inclination or attempt to turn the State of Israel into a nation of all its citizens”''

Avi Dichter, Likud Member of Israel’s Knesset

Israel’s Zionist project reached its logical outcome with the law passed in the Knesset July 19th, 2018 which formally establishes an exclusive Jewish state in Israel. From its inception, the Zionist movement foresaw a Jewish state built on all of the land of historic Palestine, cleansed of its indigenous Palestinian Arab population. While the Palestinians of Israel (approximately 20% of Israel’s population) still remain in Israel pending their eventual “transfer,” they are now without status for all intent and purpose. What observers have been saying about Israel for years is now official: Israel is an apartheid state.

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.”
