Canada is missing in action on Israel's annexation plan of the West Bank. To Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, our country is a founding member of the United Nations, we value maintaining worldwide peace and security, right of life,freedom, the right to education and work and many more. Unfortunately we also support Israel since 1948, the Israeli government violates on a daily basis the UN values by enforcing severe and discriminatory restrictions on Palestinian's human rights. 

This 1st July 2020, the annexation plan of the West Bank will officially start, this act of colonization will have catasrophic consequences on the Palestinians. Let me introduce you to some of the irreversible repercussions :

  • The land constitutes half of the agricultural land providing food security to Palestinians.
  • Palestinians would be cut off from the Jordan River which feeds more than 80,000 hectares of agricultural land, a move that would jeopardise Palestinian food and water security.
  • The restrictions imposed by the Jewish settlements will diminish Palestinian economic independence, forcing a rising unemployment and poverty.
  • The annexation will require the IDF (Israel Defenses Forces)  to increase and further deploy military forces, perhaps doubling its presence. 
  • The construction and expansion of settlements by the Israeli government will lead to confiscation of land, demolition of homes, schools and displacement of Palestinian civilians.

And many more such as the mental health of the young Palestinians.

The government must stop the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement (CIFTA). We strongly suggest a complete ban on the export of all products from Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories. The products must be treated as contraband.

Sincerely, concerned citizens and taxpayers.
