The Right Hon. Mr. Stephen Harper,

Prime Minister,



Dear Mr. Harper:


Reflecting on your stand in continuing your support for Israeli policies, and on the similar stand by our former prime minister Mr. Paul Martin, who stated, while in office,: "Israel's Values are Canadian values", I wish to draw to your attention the two articles, included here, from the two most prominent and major Israeli dailies:

These  two articles are:

1: "Down with Racism", Haaretz Editorial. Jan. 15, 2007.

2: " Kingdom of Evil: A Flag Blacker than Black" By B. Michael. Yedioth Ahronoth, Jan. 12, 2007.


These articles decribe accurately examples of the racist practices Israel uses against its own Muslim and Christian citizens, as well as against Palestinians in the illegally Occupied Territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.


I would appreciate your response to these policies and whether you, too, consider Israeli values are Canadian values.


Yours sincerely,


Ismail Zayid, MD.

President, Canada Palestine Association
