In the recent assaults on Gaza the powerful Israeli military kills increasing numbers of Palestinians using the rhetoric of self defense. People of the world recognize that this is a brutal assault that hurts mostly civilians. People are analyzing, demonstrating, and thinking about human rights, the military, the state of Israel, and western complicity in new critical ways. These unfortunate events also afford people in Canada an opportunity to think critically of colonialism, since, both Canada and Israel are settler-colonial states.
