Canadians Oppose Foreign Embassies in Jerusalem


To be sent to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the other leaders of Canada's political parties:

Earlier this week, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer promised that if elected, a Canadian government under his leadership would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.  This is offensive, appalling, illegal, and wrong.

In December, US President Donald Trump announced he was moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, breaking decades of diplomatic neutrality regarding competing Israeli and Palestinian claims to the city. We as Canadians need to express our strongest opposition.

To the Government of Canada:

WHEREAS Scheer's decision ignores all previous UN resolutions and international consensus on Jerusalem,

WHEREAS Scheer's decision contradicts international law which outlaws the seizure of territory by force,

WHEREAS Scheer's decision undermines all Middle East peace efforts, which call for a negotiated settlement on the status of Jerusalem,

THEREFORE, we, the undersigned petition you to publicly and diplomatically oppose all foreign embassies in Jerusalem!:

    The government of Canada should stop the hypocrisy! Supporting the apartheid state of Israel is criminal and should stop immediately. Are we a country that supports the human rights of all people or do we pick and choose which people we should help protect? Israel is a rogue country. Canada’s support of a rogue country makes Canada a rogue state as well.

    If you cannot stand with the oppressed Palestinians , don’t stand with the oppressor. This is why I don’t vote Conservatives. Palestine will be free no matter what!

    This is a disgrace that Canadian politicians are being bought out by the Jewish lobby groups.

    Don’t do this. It’s absurd and exacerbates an already tense situation. Don’t pour gasoline on the fire.

    Mr Scheer, you are a pathetic excuse for a human being. You are the Canadian equivalent of Donald Trump. You are just another lap dog for the Apartheid State of Israel and a tool being used to sow the seeds of discord in an already troubled world. You will never, ever represent me or any other person that has an ounce of humanity in them.

    Hypocrisy runs deep among our Canadian Politicians which is not only a shame but a disgrace for a civilised society that believes in democracy and fairness. How long will you support the injustice and brutalities of a bogus regime. Conservative government will be a disaster for Canadians if elected but Liberals should recognise need of equal rights for Palestinians as much as he is trying with the Canadian Indigenous here at home.

    To all of you, including the Green caucus — please do not stir the pot by following Trump’s lead on moving foreign embassies to Jerusalem. You must respect UN resolutions supporting Palestinian statehood based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the state capital.
