    I am horrified by the murder being committed by the state of Israel and even more horrified that B’nai Brith is trying to defend Israel’s action.

    I remember being slammed by some at the 1983 CCF/NDP 50th Anniversary convention in Regina for speaking out against the treatment of Palestinians, an oppressed people who did nothing to deserve the early 20th century theft of their land and and the subsequent crushing of their culture. There is room for all people of goodwill in that troubled part of the world. Keep it up Niki! Give peace a chance.

    Niki is a leader. She needs all the support she deserves to implement a Canadian policy for global peace and freedom of the Palestinian peoples. The working people have every interest to stand by her side.

    It’s about time a politician stood up to the genocide we all know is happening. Thank you!

    As a born and raised Canadian, I’m shocked and appalled that the vast majority of the Canadian populace is completely clueless / ignorant about what is going on. Anyone who speaks out against waste, suffering, and injustice is deserving of all our respect.

    The Bnai Brith pamplet critical of you (Niki Ashton) is certainly a great badge of honour. Please make strong public comments critical of Israel and critical of organizations and parties that uncritically and unconditionally “support Israel” while diminishing its constant violations of international law, UN resolutions and Palestinian human rights.
