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!:

    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.

    I oppose recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Canada should stand equal distance between Israelis and Palestinians until a complete resolution is set in the Middle East that recognizes the right of Palestinians for a state and a return to their home land.
