Urge the United Church to adopt the boycott of Israeli settlements

      Montreal, Canada

We encourage the United Church to adopt a boycott of Israeli settlement products, as already recommended by the church’s Middle East working group. Israeli companies which profit from Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory are in violation of the UN Norms on the Responsibilities of Transnational Corporations and other Business Enterprises with Regard to Human Rights. These norms forbid companies from engaging in and profiting from war crimes, crimes against humanity, and other violations of international law.

      I made a mistake and meant to sign the petition that urges the United Church of Canada to reject the boycott of Israel. Please remove my name from the petition.

      Thank you.

      As a Jewish Canadian who care deeply about the future of Israel I urge the United Church to recognize the harm that settlements are doing and boycott their products.
