LETTER on SaltWire: Uneven coverage of humanitarian causes by Richard Deaton


PLEASE TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE UN OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL ADVISER ON THE PREVENTION OF GENOCIDE AND THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTOR.

Regrettably, recent events in Ukraine have obscured what is still occurring in Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Israel’s expansionists policies directed against the Palestinians appear to be a co-ordinated policy of apartheid and genocide intended to eliminate Palestinian culture and existence.

Statement of Solidarity OPIRG Peterborough for Palestinian Liberation by Ontario Public Interest Research Group

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

We are calling on the Canadian Government to stop supplying weapons to Israel and recognize human rights abuses. We call for the Government of Israel to end practices that amount to genocide as defined by the United Nations. Until actions are taken, we believe that the Canadian Government should use diplomatic pressure including sanctions, revisiting both the Canadian-Israel Free Trade Agreement (CIFTA).

SFSS’ statement included a call to action to “initiate, support, and amplify” Palestinian calls to join BDS campaigns… Palestinian student Lara Radwan said, “Happy to see the SFSS stand on the right side of history as they stop letting businesses profit off of genocide and ethnic cleansing. We all play a part in making a change, and glad to see the SFSS take theirs.”

Israel Admits its Guilt (and Other Arguments) by Jim Miles

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

There are two solutions left.  First is the status quo, a slow genocide and ethnic removal of the Palestinian people, preferably to surrounding Arab states (Saudi Arabia, a US-Israeli ally would certainly not welcome them), or less preferably to small islets of apartheid.  The whole process could be sped up by a regional war, say with Iran, under cover of which Israel could attempt to expel masses of Palestinians.

The second solution is what many have demanded of Canada (remember, no double standards):  justice and restoration – of rights, of property, of health and education, of infrastructure, of legal equality as well as full political participation in the governance of the country. Simple solution, but entirely against the beliefs of the current Israeli system.

Why is an NDP MP Joining a Task Force Seeking to Force Twitter, Facebook to Apply Anti-Palestine Solidarity IHRA Definition? by Aidan Jonah

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

New Democratic Party member of parliament Randall Garrison recently joined an unofficial task force which is lobbying Facebook and Twitter to adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism, which considers any criticism of Israel or solidarity with Palestine anti-semitic. The NDP is Canada’s social-democratic political party.

… Garrison perplexingly claims that he “opposes Israeli annexation of Palestinian land and “remain[s] committed to getting Canada to work toward a two state solution where both sides can live in peace & security.” Remarkably, Garrison equates genocide against the Palestinian people to minor acts of resistance by Palestinians.

Bueckert called out Garrison for this false equivalence, stating that “if you won’t support Canada taking concrete action to stop Israeli annexation, you don’t really oppose it.”

Communists Demand Trudeau Oppose Israeli Annexation Of Palestinian Territories by Communist Party of Canada

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

“The Israeli annexation is completely illegal under international law and is an act of war against the Palestinian people whose land has been illegally occupied by Israeli troops and settlements over more than five decades,” stated the Communist Party. “The annexation is the main point in the Trump-Netanyahu ‘Deal of the Century,’ which has been rejected out of hand by the Palestinian people and by governments around the world that recognize it a provocation, an act of war and genocide.”

Why I oppose Canada’s bid for the UN Security Council seat by Hanna Kawas, Chairperson, Canada Palestine Association

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Article 1 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The High Contracting Parties undertake to respect and to ensure respect for the present Convention in all circumstances.” In addition to Canada not abiding by this article, it is directly empowering Israel’s violations of international and humanitarian law.
Please don’t reward Canada for supporting and enabling Israel’s ethnic cleansingwar crimesapartheid and genocide. I call on you in the name of my father, who died without being able to return to live in his beloved homeland, to not support Canada’s bid for a UNSC seat.
