    In these divisive days, when so many are pitted against one another, I admire Niki Ashton for standing up for basic human rights and dignity for all.

    Our right to free speech and freedom of expression has been hijacked when it comes to a few issues, and Israel-Palestine conflict looms large on this, where Canada’s position has become ridiculously one sided in favour of Israel. I fully support Niki for speaking up for Palestine.

    As a true NDP supporter, I am in solidarity with Niki Ashton and wholeheartedly appreciate her bravery! Many Canadians are aware of the dire situation in Israel and stand with our Palestinian brothers and sisters as proven by the EKOS poll and the over 90% vote for a BDS motion by the Green Party (I joined the party partly for this reason) – the NDP needs to win their base and this will be the way! This attack by B’nai Brith is just another smear campaign to deflect from Israel’s atrocities. We need more people like Niki to speak for Canadians and NOT the lobby groups! Times have changed and no longer are we blinded by propaganda and the blatant disregard for human rights continuing for nearly 70 years in Israel! Thank you Niki!

    Shame on those who defend the oppression and terrorist crimes being committed against Palestinians. The tide is turning; Canadians are “getting it”.

    It’s time that Bnai Brith began considering the lack of Human Rights being accorded Palestinians. Arabs have been living in Palestine since the 700’s AD. and whether Muslims or Christians are being marginalized and ethnically cleansed from their ancestral lands by Zionists. Before Zionism Muslims, Jews and Christians lived peacefully in Palestine. Then came the zionist terrorists.

    Palestinians have just as much a right to statehood, if not more, than the Jews.
