Rebel loses again

Far-right Rebel Media and its mastermind, Ezra Levant, have been handed another in a long line of legal defeats. The latest is a settlement in a suit for defamation brought against Rebel by Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East.

CJPME has long endorsed a strategy of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against the state of Israel for its illegal occupation of Palestinian territory.

Rebel responded by making many defamatory and libelous statements about CJPME, calling them “anti-Semitic”, “Nazis” and “Jew-baiters”. CJPME launched its lawsuit in 2016, determined to resist any attempts to label peaceful pressure tactics illegal or anti-Semitic.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but obviously favoured CJPME, which announced itself “satisfied” with the judgement. This is a victory for Palestinian solidarity, BDS tactics and the right of free expression in Canada.
