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 world needs to step up to create a 2-State solution for the region, and it’s not going to happen if we act as a puppet of the US and declare Jerusalem the Israeli capital…madness!

    Canada needs to show some leadership by finding its own moral integrity and voting to support the Palestinians in creating their own well-deserved home where they can forget the current apartheid conditions.

    Conservative leader Andrew Scheer’s promise is shameful and morally degrading for a human being and human dignity (to side with the strongest even if that violate international law (including UN) – & not standing up for justice – it is understandable he just wants to get tons of money /media support from wealthy Zionist community. But one thing which is good that A. Sheer dare to show the ugly side of his personality behind beautiful smile to Canadian.

    Touching the embassy in Israel and relocating it to Jerusalem breaks international law and international convention. This would undermine the two state solution pre-supposing an unnatural conclusion. This is not a step in the Palestinian-Israel conflict supported by Canadians. Please stop backing this land grab !

    It is neither in the interest of the Canadian government nor the Canadian people to ignore multiple resolutions of the UN and international and humanitarian law, Israel’s Modus Operandi for close to seven decades.

    Why does Andrew Scheer want to position Canada against a possible peaceful resolution of the tragedy in Palestine ? Because big donors to his corrupt political career wish him to do Israel’s bidding ?

    You can be certain that I will never vote for the Conservative party of Canada as long as it defends this very offensive position.

    Neither Mr. Andrew Scheer or any other politician has the right to “declare” Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is a shared city for two peoples and three faiths, not a pawn in Mr. Scheer’s political campaign.

    You have got actual important things to focus on. Propping up an apartheid state should be the last thing you have to accomplish. Stop this madness. We are not the USA.
