Position Paper: FOR A RELEVANT & POSITIVE CANADIAN MIDDLE EAST POLICY
The Winter and Spring months of 2007 have been fraught with diplomatic activity in the Middle East, but vacant of much hope. CJPME proposes the following positions to enable Canada to be positively present in the Middle East.
Position Paper: CARTER’S ADVICE FOR MIDDLE EAST POLICY
This position paper provides an overview of the summary discussion in former US President Jimmy Carter’s book, Palestine: Peace not Apartheid. Five recommendations inspired by the book and adapted to Canadian context are listed and their potential benefits explained.
Position Paper: A CANADIAN RE-ASSESSMENT OF THE DESTRUCTION OF LEBANON
This position paper highlights the causes and repercussions of the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war (also called the 2006 Lebanon war), before listing CJPME’s recommendations to Canada: offer more meaningful assistance to Lebanon, call both parties on their violations of international law and help remove unexploded Israeli munitions in Lebanon.
Position paper: ISRAELI-HEZBOLLAH CROSS-BORDER VIOLENCE
This position paper insists on the damages caused by the Israeli-Hezbollah conflict and the importance for Canada to call for an immediate ceasefire and for a suspension of all military supplies in order to avoid more civilian deaths, and to contain a conflict that violates international law.
