KAIROS position on the right of return totally conforms with the Palestinian demands. This political advocacy on an extremely complex issue is inconsistent with KAIROS status as a humanitarian aid organization funded by the Canadian government. KAIROS also promotes the Palestinian narrative on the peace process, implying that Israel alone is responsible for continued conflict in the region. Also recognizes the possibility that sustainable and just peace may take the shape of one bi-national state for two peoples.

A publication on the resources for education and action webpage describes Zionism as an ideology of empire, colonialism, and militarism. Supported the failed Bilin lawfare case in Canadian courts.
