    Apartheid is happening in Israel. The United States and Canada are on the wrong side of history.

    Criticizing Israel is right and proper until Israel recognizes the right of Palestinians to live normal lives with equality within the area formerly known as Palestine.

    To speak out against apartheid is one’s duty, not a crime. Shame on those who continue to defend the indefensible and allow the brutal occupation to go unquestioned.

    I have been an NDP member for over 35 years and was pleased to hear you speak at the Indigenous Rights rally in Ottawa last week. You correctly paralleled the plight of the Palestinian peoples with those of the indigenous peoples of Canada. Thank you for standing up for all indigenous rights. Alan Herbert

    Thank you, Niki Ashton, for speaking out for Palestinian human rights. We need our Canadian public officials to speak out on the need for public awareness and respect for international human rights.
