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!:

    The possibility of some political gains in Canada does not justify inflaming an already incendiary condition… not to mention it’s just plain wrong!

    You should be ashamed of supporting the Apartheid regime which is Israel’s!

    There is no good reason for moving the embassy – period.
