Canadians Oppose Foreign Embassies in Jerusalem


To be sent to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the leaders of all other Canadian political parties:

Earlier this week, 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.

In December, 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. 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!:

    Canada should not do what the united states are doing, but follow international law and end the occupation of Palestinian land.

    Canada should not be following the same destructive path that the American regime to the south is bent on doing.

    The Canadian government needs to get on the right side of international law and support peace and justice. End the occupation.

    It is totally unfair to try to eliminate thousands of years of truth and create faked history. Jerusalem has been home of Palestinians for thousands of years. Who you are and with what right you want to grant it to who robbed it 50 years ago.

    The same Andrew who after being elected said he,"Believes that radical ISLAMIC terrorism is a threat to all Canadians. It is clear what his agenda is.

    ISLAM is a religion which has Nothing to do with Terrorism. Someone please get Andrew and Trump up to speed.

    It is against international law and he is supporting Israel which is an apartheid state against the native Palestinians.
