Pro-Israel blogger attacks Canada First Nation chief, but Palestinians express solidarity with Idle No More

Liberal website The Huffington Post last week published an attack on an indigenous rights activist who is on hunger strike in Canada, labeling her “the hungry chief mugging for the cameras on an island in the Ottawa River.” Writing on the Canadian edition of the site, anti-Palestinian blogger Yoni Goldstein openly attacked Theresa Spence as a “problem” responsible for indigenous people’s woes in Canada and said he had “no sympathy” for her.
