Canadians Oppose Foreign Embassies in Jerusalem

Jerusalem.png

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!:

    Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel only fuels the illegal occupation and settlement of the West Bank and makes a just peace with the Palestinians more and more difficult to ever achieve. We need to be going in the other direction, pressuring Israel to stop settlements, end the occupation and settlement of the West Bank, and start real negotiations aimed at recognizing the sovereignty and legitimacy of both states, and allowing the Palestinian state the means of economic prosperity. We need to emphasize that the alternative is not continued occupation and subjugation of the Palestinians, but their full rights—economic, political and civic—as citizens of Israel on an equal basis with the Jewish citizens.

    Please respect international law, especially if you’re planning on speaking on behalf of all Canadians.

    This does not represent my values.

    It does not represent Canadian values.

    It is illegal.
