Word to the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP)
(NDP convention presented a resolution that represent a set back in the NDP stand from the Palestinian question)
Delegate to the NDP convention
NDP shouldn’t equalize between the occupier and the people under occupation
Unfortunately, I have to strongly oppose this motion as it equalize between the occupier and the people under occupation and, equalize between the occupation force that created an apartheid regime, and the people under the siege in Gaza and west bank.
In the past, NDP passed several strong resolutions that support Palestinian people, without denying the Israeli the right to leave in peace, but calling for a balanced resolution, is a shame for NDP delegates who live with values and fight for justice to vote a resolution as such;
It would be shameful if the NDP convention pass such resolution, so I am voting against this resolution, as a mater of respect to the Palestine people and the Israelis who believe in peace and justice and in respect to our collective value and believes.
It is better that the NDP don’t vote any resolution about the Palestinian struggle for rights, than voting a resolution that becomes sad chapter in NDP movement.
