Canada’s Reversal at the UN is not OK!
On November 19th, Canada abandoned almost 2 decades of support for Israel and gave support to the anti-Israel crowd at the UN. Canada voted in favour of a General Assembly resolution co-sponsored by North Korea, Zimbabwe, and the PLO, all despotic regimes, which do not live up to the UN Charter of Human Rights. The motion as described by the CBC, “condemns Israel’s presence in Jerusalem and characterizes it as ‘occupied Palestinian territory’.” The resolution criticizes Israel’s security barrier which has demonstrably saved hundreds, if not thousands of lives and ignores completely the barrage of bombs and mortar attacks on Israel. Hillel Neuer, Executive Director of UN Watch and much celebrated international human rights lawyer and UN Watchdog, pointed out that “Trudeau is trading Canada’s bedrock principles of fairness & equality for a UN Security Council seat. By voting for a resolution sponsored by North Korea & Zimbabwe, he has entered a Faustian bargain with dictatorships that does not bode well for our free & democratic society.” As Canadians interested in the fair treatment of Israel, including a position that acknowledges Israel’s land rights and that stands against Anti-Zionism--the new Antisemitism, we find the actions of the government to be abhorrent and will send the following letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and Cabinet. Please add your name to this petition and let the government know that abandoning truth and justice does not serve Canadians.
