    Niki should be commended for defending human rights, especially in a rogue colonial State which treats the occupied Palestinians like animals in a pen.

    That is unforgivable and I and my husband Charles stand with you and thanks for being so courageous. There are Jewish citizens out there as you know who do not think in such a blinkered way. You speak for us . Keep up the good work As an NDPer you know that being on the right side is not always easy, in fact seldom is ,but know many of us NDP or not feel as you do and are thankful that you can speak for us. love to you from us both for being our voice too.

    Dear Niki

    You are brave to make a statement about the Middle East – it’s always a controversial subject. But the NDP has got to begin to face controversy and take stands on difficult topics. — Della Golland

    I support human rights and no one should be penalized for doing something rational in support of the rights of those who don’t have a voice.
