Open Letter – Writing to the Official Opposition Party in Canada

Dear All,

I recommend this open letter prepared by Independent Jewish Voices (Canada) (click here) and addressed to the New Democratic Party (NDP) of Canada and its leader, Mr. Thomas Mulcair. The letter is written with detail and provides insight into the current and potential positioning that Canada could take in response to the siege on Gaza and its global impact:

“We expect the NDP, in its role as the main opposition party in Ottawa, to take a strong stand regarding the ongoing assault on Palestinians in Gaza. We are extremely disappointed by the NDP’s official statement [click here] and denounce it as insufficient and riddled with omissions. While paying lip service to criticising the government, there is little that distinguishes Mr. Mulcair and his official party line in any profound way from the position of the Harper government. Through its statement the NDP exposes its deep bias towards the Israeli politics of occupation and aggression, and it will have no effect on the disastrous path the Canadian government has chosen. The list below details the basis of our judgement.” (For the full letter and to sign the letter, click here.)

Staying strongly in support of international human rights, because we need to… Yesterday’s news and commentaries move me to continue to write… (for example, click here , here, and here)…
