Mr. Pat O'Brien,M.P.
The House of Commons.
Dear Mr. O'Brien:
We congratulate you on your courageous principled stand on the Apartheid wall Israel is constructing on Palestinian land, denying people access to their land, children to their schools and patients to health care.
This, as you clearly state, is a violation of international law and UN resolutions.
If Israel is concerned about the security of its citizens, its duty is to terminate immediately and unconditionally its illegal occupation of Palestinian territory, that has been allowed to stand in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions for 37 years, and dismantle its illegal settlements built on illegally expropriated Palestinian land, in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and Security Council resolutions.
It is heartening to see that there are still courageous and principled persons in our world, who are willing to withstand the Zionist lies and manufactured charges of anti-semitism. It is incredible to accept that Israel, anongst all states in the world, should be granted the unique immunity of criticism of its policies.
Yours sincerely,
Ismail Zayid, MD.
President, Canada Palestine Association.
