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!:

    Most Canadians oppose this action and this will be apparent in the next election. Jerusalem was declared a neutral city until the peace issue could be settled. I wish the politicians would do what the people of Canada want and not what the lobbyists pay for.

    The Conservative Party sounds and acts more and more like the Canadian Trump party.

    Such a step is unnecessary and provocative and not conducive to the peace process. It supports only the one side and would actually work to further entrench and ‘legitimize’ the continued and illegal occupation. Please do not support this. Please.

    Please don’t be a part of an apartheid solution but be a human and act for humanity. By recognising East Jerusalem as capital of Israel you are condoning the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian people.

    I usually vote for a candidate as opposed to a party.

    No vote for any PC candidate from this household now, however.

    Stop the injustice instead. Stop the killing. Make peace.
