Last year, 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.
This year, on May 8th, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer promised that if elected, a Canadian government under his leadership would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the Canadian embassy to Jerusalem. This is offensive, appalling, illegal, and wrong.
Join us and sign our "It's BS petition"! We're going to send the full list of signatures and comments to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, 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 Scheer's decision ignores all previous UN resolutions and international consensus on Jerusalem,
WHEREAS Scheer's decision contradicts international law which outlaws the seizure of territory by force,
WHEREAS Scheer'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 last year's 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 Parliament to introduce a motion condemning Israel’s illegal “settlements.”
When we all work together, we force our politicians to work for our interests! Thanks for being part of this highly strategic campaign!
