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
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.
Ismail Zayid, MD.
President, Canada Palestine Association.
