Canadians Oppose Foreign Embassies in Jerusalem

Jerusalem.png

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

Earlier this week, 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!:

    Trump does not own Jerusalem or the Palestinian land. It is unjust to accept the rule of occupation and power. We should fight back for rule of law. We, the Canadians, will not legitimise the occupation and legalise oppression.

    This declaration of president Trump needs to be condemned as arrogant, provocative and destabilising

    President Trump keeps creating problems instead of helping resolving them.

    Georges Dupras – The US President’s initiative to move the American Embassy to Jerusalim will only make a difficult situation infinitely worse. The best move at the moment is no move. The Canadian Government should be one of influence, patience and consideration for all peace-seeking Israelies and Palestinians.

    We have lived in the occupied West Bank, half an hour from Jerusalem, for ten years and witnessed the creeping takeover by Israel first hand. Don’t let it get by passively. The world will never be a safe place as long as Israel feels no pressure to make a real peace with its neighbours.
