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!:

    Jerusalem will be always the holy place for all faiths. It will always be the capital of Palestine…no one has the right to declare / announce about its status except the people of Palestine. It is fully a Palestinian matter that Trump administration and/or any USA government as well as any other government/s has no right to do do…! What the USA government had declared is totally against the international law and Geneva conventions.

    Thank you Canada for your stand up with the Palestinian rights; and in keeping Jerusalem status as a unified city; no changebor moving of the Canadian embassy to it; and respecting the inspiration and future hope of all Palestinian people to see Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. Meanwhile, Canadian/Palestinian are seeking for more positive role by Mr Justin Trudeau’s government towards just and lasting peaceful solution to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.

    Thank you Mr Trudeau for taking a righteous stand by refusing to move the Canadian embassy to occupied Jerusalem.

    Please don’t support occupation, don’t do this in our names. Let’s all help to Free Palestine.
