Thanks for emailing Champagne & Trudeau about BDS

Thank you for participating in our campaign to challenge the Trudeau government’s condemnation of the BDS movement.

    Outrageous. BDS is a response to Israel’s apartheid and relentless land invasion and theft. If Mr. Champagne is abysmally ignorant of Israel’s ongoing brutal treatment of the original and ancient occupants of the land , that’s inexcusable in a “Minister Of Foreign Affairs” . If he isn’t, his response is deeply reprehensible. And he has the gall to be “firm and clear”?

    How dare this Champagne Clown make such a statement. This is a pathetic attempt to garner sympathy for the Illegal Apartheid state of Israel. Where is your sympathy for the Palestinians, and the decades worth of atrocities committed against them? Please re-evaluate your humanity you pathetic slime. Criticism of Apartheid Israel will NEVER be anti-Semitic. In fact, if you give it some thought, it would be Anti-Semitic to NOT speak out against tyranny and oppression.

    Opposing BDS is immoral and will surely tarnish Canada’s reputation among the international community of people around the world who seek a just peace in Palestine, illegally-occupied (by Israel) Palestine.

    I agree that that human rights abuse of Palestinians by the occupying Israeli army is not acceptable nor compatible with Canadian values. The government of Canada preaches and advocates for the respect of human rights in China and other parts of the world but stops short of condemning Israel for its continued human rights violations and illegal occupation of Palestine.
    BDS is a peaceful approach — applying political and economic pressure — and reminding nations of the plight of millions of Palestinians since 1948. What is the use of Canada seeking a seat on the Security Council if we are not going to abide by international law that condemns illegal occupation and stand up for the oppressed?
    The Canadian government should join activists and clergy to bring about a peaceful end to apartheid in the Holy Land as they did in South Africa in 1994.

    Monsieur Champagne,
    Please educate yourself. Your reaction seems to be amazingly naive. Are you a politician who lacks guts or tries to be ‘balance’…or is simply just plain ignorant about what is happening in this particular conflict that started way before you were born. No excuse. You owe Canadians to find out what is happening. Wake up!

    Could you ever imagine the day that Brian Mulroney’s ethical stand on apartheid and the boycott of South Africa would stand in stark contrast to the Liberal government of Justin Trudeau. It just goes to show you that ethical, moral stands can come from unlikely places while those who play at it fail when the time comes.

    It is about time that the Trudeau government admits to the fact that human rights abuse of Palestinians, by the occupying Israeli army is not acceptable nor compatible with Canadian values. The government of Canada preaches and advocates for the respect of human rights in China and other parts of the world but stops short of condemning Israel for its continued human rights violations and illegal occupation of PALESTINE. Are they afraid of the pressure from the Israeli lobby in Canada? BDS is a peaceful approach, by putting political and economic pressure and reminding nations of the plight of millions of Palestinians since 1948. What is the use of Canada seeking a seat on the Security Council if we are not going to abide by international law that condemns illegal occupation and stand up for the oppressed? The statement of Mr. Francois-Philippe Champagne: “Let me be firm and clear to all Canadians: We Condemn BDS”. This means that Canada supports Apartheid, discrimination and human rights abuses. This is absolutely unacceptable and sounds like our Minister is the spokesperson of the Israeli government.

    So much for the Liberal government’s insupportable and lickspittle denunciation of BDS. So much for the Liberal government.

    Zionists and their fellow travellers have subverted democracy in many western countries including Canada. Our country supports the violent. rogue, racist ethno-state of Israel whose ongoing slow genocide of the Palestinians is condemned by virtually the entire planet. This is a profound stain on Canada and not supported by the vast majority of Canadians who are decent, moral people. Our politicians are shameless servants of the diabolical Zionist agenda. Decent people everywhere should denounce Israel and its apologists in the media and government. Don’t buy anything Israeli and don’t visit that evil country. Decency can triumph over the expediency of our sociopathic politicians.

    Canada must stop defending ethnic cleansing and apartheid in the Holy Land.
    Canada waited 38 years to react against apartheid in South Africa but in 1986 it imposed economic sanctions against South Africa.
    The Canadian government should join activists and clergy to bring about a peaceful end to apartheid in the Holy Land as they did in South Africa in 1994.

    Just now, as every single day Israel kills Palestinian women and children. My Canada is now fascist.

    Absolutely disgusting and appalling. I am outraged by this government’s sheer …what? Stupidity? Ignorance? Corruption? Hypocrisy? Let me be firm and clear. I unequivocally condemn the dishonourable minister Champagne and the Trudeau government and their misinformed stance on BDS until such time as they are turfed. I support BDS and have practically influenced significant expenditures from being awarded to the occupying colony.
    We are making a difference.
