Speak Out: Israel must uphold international law! June 8, 2010

Israel must uphold international law!

SIGN THE PETITION

Send a message to
the Israeli Prime Minister
Nine civilians have been killed by Israeli armed forces aboard a ship carrying aid to the Gaza strip in defiance of the Israeli blockade. Israeli commandos boarded the aid flotilla ships in international waters without clear legal justification and therefore could be in violation of international law.

Israel says its forces acted in self-defence but the level of lethal force used by Israeli troops appears to have been out of all proportion to any threat posed.

The Israeli authorities have the primary responsibility to investigate the use of lethal force by its forces but given the international nature of this incident, there is also a need for an immediate international investigation. We are calling on Israel to launch an immediate credible and independent investigation into these killings, and to allow the UN access to conduct an international inquiry.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

Please send a message to the Prime Minister of Israel, Binyamin Netanyahu calling on Israel to launch immediately an independent, credible and thorough investigation into these killings and fully cooperate with the UN or other competent body in any international inquiry that may be initiated.

BANNING HIJAB IN CANADA: IT CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE February 8, 2008

During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, I remember the stories emanating from France of young Muslim schoolgirls expelled for wearing the Hijab.

While many of the young sisters were permitted to return to school wearing the Hijab, wider questions had been raised.

How does a purely secular public school system accommodate religious beliefs? What about the issues of freedom and oppression of women? Were these girls influenced by the “integristes” of Algeria, who were aspiring to implement an Islamic government in the former French colony?

Was this another example of “immigrants” failing to integrate into French society (a favorite theme of le Front National, a national anti-immigrant party)? Was this the beginning of the end of the strict separation between church and state?

Approximately every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood. In fact, according to a recent poll, 52 per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have needed blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment.

The good news is that one blood donation – in just one hour – can save up to three lives.
