Thank you very much for your reply to my letter regarding Gaza and for sending me your party’s statement on the escalating humanitarian crisis and human rights violations in Gaza.
I especially appreciate your reference to the fact that “Innocent civilians in Gaza have become victims of the Israeli government’s collective punishment.” This is the harsh truth. It is time for Canadian politicians to stand up to the lobby, show some leadership and speak out against Israel’s gradual ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. To me, this is the litmus test of honesty, decency and integrity. How can Canadians trust politicians who allow themselves to be pressured and watch silently as the Palestinina Holocaust takes place before their eyes.
I received my membership renewal for the Liberal Party earlier this week. I have not completed and returned it yet. My vote in the next election will be going to the candidate from any party who understands the true meaning of “Never Again”.
