In the next few days, the UN will be voting on an important resolution to refer Israel to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). This could be a major step forward for holding Israel accountable, but Canada is planning to vote against it!
If passed, the ICJ will be asked to provide a legal opinion on whether Israel’s military occupation of Palestinian territory is now illegal, given that Israel seems intent on holding onto Palestinian land forever.
Although Canada has opposed this resolution in the past, it has an opportunity to change its mind and support this resolution in an upcoming UN General Assembly plenary vote.
