"Confronting Heather Reisman"
Article on the Web at:

"Nice to see Heather Reisman challenged for her financial support for terrorist attacks on Arab peoples in the Middle East. Watch the video and see members of the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid confronting her at a Ralph Nader book-signing, over her financial support for Jews who volunteer to go to Israel to suppress, harass, beat and kill Palestinians.

"In 2005 Heather Reisman and Gerry Schwartz, the majority owners of Chapters Indigo Bookstores, established a program called the HESEG Foundation for lone soldiers. HESEG offers grants of financial support to former 'lone soldiers' in the Israeli military to pursue post secondary education in Israel. It aims to distribute $3M per year to provide scholarships and other support to former 'lone soldiers'. Scholarships are to be granted based on need and 'military achievement'.

"Let's break this down.

"A 'lone soldier' is someone not from Israel, who chooses to go to that country in order to join the armed forces. These are young Jews from the diaspora who have bought into Zionist colonialism so deeply that they are willing to volunteer and go to serve in the Israeli 'Defense' Forces.

"As such, they operate on the frontline of genocide in the Middle East, taking part in the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

"The fact that Reisman and Schwartz can openly encourage Jewish youth to travel across continents in order to fight against Arab people is testimony not only to their own moral bankruptcy, but also to Canada's complicity in the oppression of the Palestinian people..."
