Dear Chatelaine: There Is No State of Palestine

June 22, 2020

Dear Chatelaine,

Contrary to your Magazine’s assertion, there is no such thing as a state of Palestine.

On June 19, you featured an article by Chantal Braganza entitled: “This New Cookbook Is A Love Letter To Palestinian Food” about a new cookbook called “Falastin” co-written by Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley which sets out to show how Palestinians eat and live today.

8 times throughout the interview, a nation state called “Palestine” was referred to. Trouble is though, there is no modern country of Palestine, although there’s a movement to establish one as part of a two-state peace agreement with Israel. Areas under the control of the Palestinian Authority are considered Palestinian territories with Fatah running the “West Bank” and the Hamas terror group running the Gaza Strip.

We appeal to you to set the record straight.

Yours truly,

HonestReporting Canada
