    I am so dissapointed that by supporting Palestinians B’nai Brith automatically attacks you as anti Semitic. She spoke out against the atrocities the Israeli government is committing against innocent children, youth and the elderly. Israel as a nation has a lot to answer for!

    A recent pole showed that the majority of Canadians are in support of Palestinians rights, in spite of mainstream media self censorship on the Palestinian plight.

    We also need to speak out about gross Human Rights violations by the Israeli Occupation forces.

    Allen Gunderson : I have been actively supporting Palestine Human Rights for 47 years, both in Canada and the Middle East , and I’ve been supporting you for NDP Leadership since 2011. At this point in time, you are the only reason I have any interest in the NDP. I would recommend all voting Canadians to support you as well!

    Keep up the genuine work ethics and fairness. Israel is the main cause of evil deeds . Thank you for standing up for the rules of civility and decent behavior.

    I fully support her. She did the right and just thing. Israel has a lot of blood on its hands.
