    Défendre la cause des Palestiniens, c’est s’exposer à des attaques de toutes parts, et être lâchement accusé d’antisémitisme par des gens qui n’ont que cet argument contre ceux qui dénoncent les violations des droits humains commises par les sionistes. Je suis d’origine juive et refuse de m’associer à cette conspiration. Merci de votre courage.

    I lived in Ramallah for 3 months in 2004 as part of a World Council of Churches peace initiative. The Occupation has to stop for peace for both sides. Peace Ruth justice will bring a lasting peace.

    Thank you for your support Niki, you officially have my support. As a Palestinian, living in Canada, it’s important that we spread the word and build solidarity for Palestine and the ongoing illegal occupation. Thank you once again, I wish you the best of luck in your election race.

    It takes much courage to stand for Palestinian human rights. It really is a shame that politicians get bullied for standing for human rights, and organizations that try to defame politicians for doing so should be ashamed and shunned.

    You are the first NDP member I have heard who is speaking out on this one-sided crisis, we need action now not some weak apologetic notion of some two-nation state, that will never happen in the narrow political climate dominated by Netanyahu. Great, you have my support!
