    Niki Ashton stood in solidarity with the victims of an apartheid state that has shown little interest in recognizing or restoring rights of the Palestinian people. She is taking a principled stance that has differentiated her from her colleagues and is truly a leader.

    Congratulations to Niki Ashton for supporting the Palestinians. Too many Canadian politicians are spineless on this issue. Sixty Nine years of illegal Israeli occupation is Sixty Nine years too many. Israel has thumbed its nose at UN Resolution after Resolution. It’s stunning how the victims of the Holocaust can be so insensitive and cruel to the Palestinians. The victims have turned into the oppressors !

    It is a shame that B’nai Brith feels compelled to support Israeli policies and actions that violate the human rights of so many Palestinians and attack those who dare to criticize Israel’s continued oppression of Palestinians.

    I left the NDP because of anti-Palestinian comments and actions on the part of Thomas Mulcair. I would love to see the party once again have a leader who stands up for human rights everywhere!
