    Thank you Niki for standing up for what’s right and recognizing the Nakba as a sad day for Palestinians who’ve lost their land and home, and in turn have been denied the right of return for themselves and the generations following. Stay strong!

    I was very pleased to see an NDP leadership candidate finally speak up publicly in support of Palestinian rights. Although I am a member of the NDP, this party has been a great disappointment in the past. In fact, I could never detect any difference between the traditional enthusiastic support for Israeli rights AND Israeli occupation of Palestinian land by the NDP from the similar jingoistic support from the Liberal Party of Canada. The right for Israel to exist should not obliterate the right of Palestinians to their homeland and their own state. Wilfrid DENIS

    Both sides are entitled to be heard in the debate on this issue ;the Palestinian case seems to be neglected in the mainstream media.
