If you're like us, you were shocked and angered by the videos of Israeli soldiers raiding the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem over the weekend. Israeli soldiers threw teargas and stun grenades as they entered the compound and mosque, assaulting hundreds – including women, parents with children, media, and medics. On Friday, Canada issued a weak statement about "de-escalation" of the "violence in and around Al-Aqsa" with NO DISTINCTION between the violent Israeli soldiers and the Palestinian victims.
So we want a clear condemnation from Canada; and we want Canada to finally stop arming Israel's apartheid regime! Canada must end its complicity now!
