Subject: Your Question re; Canada's recognition of PA led by
Surely, Canada should recognise the freely-elected
Palestinian government and the resulting Palestinian Authority.
It is the height of hypocrisy and double standards,
for a country which claims to support democracy, to deny this recognition to the
newly elected PA.
The pretext used, for this denial of recognition,
is Hamas involvement in violence and terrorism.The Hamas violence is a direct
result of the oppressive occupation. The state of Israel has been indulging
in violence and state terrorism since its inception and has continued that
during its illegal occupation of Palestinian territory over the last 38 years,
with practices including extra-judicial assassination, killing thousands by
bombing using F16's and Apaches, demolition of thousands of homes and other
practices. These Practices have been condemned, as state terrorism, by all
international human rights groups, including Amnesty International, Human Rights
Watch, and Israeli human rights group, B'Tselem.
Let us put an end to this hypocricy and double
