While belonging to a Communist party was grounds for exclusion being an ex-Nazi as early as 1950 was no longer regarded as such. The acceptance of 60,000 "boat" people was applauded by Canadians because they were fleeing Communist opression but the efforts of a few thousand Central Americans were stymied by two repressive refugee bills because they were fleeing the "oppression of our side". Whitacker grants that Canada is a safe haven of peace and freedom but only to those who are ideologically correct.

    Resource Type: Book

    Malik makes the case that most anti-racists accept the belief, also held by racialists and outright racists, that differences between groups are of great importance. While racialists attribute the differences to biology, anti-racists attribute them to deep-rooted cultural traditions which are typically seen as inherent in the group. Malik argues that these positions are actually quite similar, and makes the case that racism and racial inequality are best combatted by focusing not on our differences but on what unites us. Malik also strongly criticizes the cultural relativism of many anti-racists, and their increasing tendency to reject science as some kind of western imperialist conspiracy to oppress the rest of the world.

  64. Why Israel?
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2007
    A routine strategy of Israel's defenders is to continually redirect attention to the human rights failings of countries hostile to Israel, or to catastrophes like Darfur that are used to argue the ongoing need for the sort of 'humanitarian interventions' that provide cover for the advancement of U.S. interests. Yet the question of why Israel is being targeted and not some other country assumes, erroneously, that other countries are not being targeted. The reverse, in fact, is usually the case. Often, countries deemed acceptable for criticism by supporters of Israel are already subject to political and diplomatic sanctions by the U.S. and its tool, the UN Security Council -- sometimes for acting in ways identical to Israel.
