Tell Your MP: Sign The Pledge To Oppose Israeli Annexation PDF Print E-mail
Jun 24, 2020 at 12:36 PM

 Canada Must Stop Annexation

As July 1st draws closer, the Canadian government has been mostly quiet about Israel’s potential annexation of large parts of the West Bank. This despite the fact that a recent EKOS poll co-sponsored by IJV found that 74% of Canadians oppose this horrible plan, and 42% support imposing sanctions if Israel goes ahead with it. 

In an attempt to avert the injustice of Israel’s annexation of additional Palestinian land, IJV is teaming up with Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, the United Church of Canada, the Canadian Labour Congress and the Mennonite Central Committee to ask MPs to sign a pledge urging the Canadian government to take action on annexation. Can you help us convince your MP to sign the pledge?

Gaza 2020 International Campaign PDF Print E-mail
Jun 09, 2020 at 12:00 AM

This June, Palestinians mark 13 years since the start of the Gaza closure.

In 2018, Just Peace Advocates with Al-Haq began the Gaza2020 campaign in Canada. In 2019 we made a clear call to Canada to place sanctions on Israel until at least the blockade on Gaza is lifted. Over 100 organizations have joined in that call over the last 2 years.

It is now June 2020, and we reach out to you to ask if you would be willing to join us in the Gaza2020 international campaign running from June 9 to 16, 2020,.

In Canada, this includes specifically supporting the promotion of the formal government petition, E-2565 sponsored by Paul Manly, that:

requests that Israel immediately lift the blockade on Gaza to enable medical and humanitarian aid during the COVID-19 pandemic, and insist that Israel permanently end its blockade of Gaza; and vote at the UN General Assembly in alignment with the majority of the international community taking a stance in line with international law and human rights for Palestinians.

If you who would like to support this action, please sign government petition, E-2565.

Our hope is that we can make E-2565 really big with a large number of signatures before it closes in early September.

We also want to support the following specific Palestine based call for action:

Support NDP leadership candidate Niki Ashton, attacked for supporting Palestinian rights PDF Print E-mail
May 21, 2017 at 02:25 PM

In May 2017, B’nai Brith viciously attacked NDP Leadership candidate Niki Ashton for speaking at a rally for Palestinian human rights in Montreal this past weekend.

Niki Ashton has stood up for Palestinian human rights; now it’s our turn to stand up for her.

To Ms. Niki Ashton:

WHEREAS you have openly supported Palestinian human rights throughout your career,

WHEREAS you have been a long-time champion for social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the world,

WHEREAS B’nai Brith and others have sought to attack and discredit you for your courageous stances,

THEREFORE, we, the undersigned petition you to continue your courageous work, and to find renewed strength to continue your fight for justice in Canada and abroad:

Resumption of funding to UNRWA by the Canadian Government PDF Print E-mail
Jun 06, 2016 at 04:09 PM

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was created in 1950 to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestine refugees, and is unique in terms of its long-standing commitment to this vulnerable group of refugees.

 

Canada has been a prominent supporter of UNRWA since its inception, but under the previous government, was the only donor to have ever withdrawn funding.

EVERY PEOPLE elevate the profession in which they excel.

If a person in the street were asked to name the area of enterprise in which we Israelis excel, his answer would probably be: Hi-Tech. And indeed, in this area we have recorded some impressive achievements. It seems as if hardly a day passes without an Israeli start-up company that was born in a garage being sold for hundreds of millions. Little Israel is one of the major hi-tech powers in the world.

But the profession in which Israel is not only one of the biggest, but the unchallenged Numero Uno is: liquidations.

This week this was proven once again. The Hebrew verb "lekhassel" - liquidate - in all its grammatical forms, currently dominates our public discourse. Respected professors debate with academic solemnity when to "liquidate" and whom. Used generals discuss with professional zeal the technicalities of "liquidation", its rules and methods. Shrewd politicians compete with each other about the number and status of the candidates for "liquidation".

INDEED, FOR a long time now there has not been such an orgy of jubilation and self-congratulation in the Israeli media as there was this week. Every reporter, every commentator, every political hack, every transient celeb interviewed on TV, on the radio and in the newspapers, was radiant with pride. We have done it! We have succeeded! We have "liquidated" Imad Mughniyeh!
