In december 2017, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer promised that if elected, a Canadian government under his leadership would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. This is offensive, appalling, illegal, and wrong.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump announced he was moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, breaking decades of diplomatic neutrality regarding competing Israeli and Palestinian claims to the city.
Join us and sign our "It's BS petition"! We're going to send the full list of signatures and comments to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the leaders of Canada's other significant Federal parties:
We as Canadians need to express our strongest opposition.
To the Government of Canada:
WHEREAS Trump's decision ignores all previous UN resolutions and international consensus on Jerusalem,
WHEREAS Trump's decision contradicts international law which outlaws the seizure of territory by force,
WHEREAS Trump's decision undermines all Middle East peace efforts, which call for a negotiated settlement on the status of Jerusalem,
THEREFORE, we, the undersigned petition you to publicly and diplomatically oppose all foreign embassies in Jerusalem!
Hopefully you saw our video on the Jerusalem petition. We’ve also done a great video on another initiative we’re promoting right now, you can check it on Facebook or YouTube. It’s a campaign to pressure Parliamentto introduce a motion condemning Israel’s illegal “settlements.” Please take a look, and sign the Parliamentary ePetition behind this campaign if you can. We’ve only got until January 19th before the petition closes!
When we all work together, we force our politicians to work for our interests! Thanks for being part of this highly strategic campaign!
