Thr Right Hon. Mr. Jean Chretien,
The Prime Minister,
Dear Mr. Chretien,
The report of our cabinet ministers and MP's participating in a conference sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in support of Israeli government policies, is surprising and irregular. These policies include longstanding illegal occupation of foreign territories, in violation of international law and in defiance of repeated Security Council resolutions and The Fourth Geneva Convention and are clearly contrary to our Government policies.
To compound this irregularity, it is outrageous that our taxpayers' dollars should be allowed to fund such activities. We call on our Government to disallow that.
Yours sincerely,
Ismail zayid, M.D.
President, Canada Palestine Association.
