An outrageous crime

Dr. Ismail Zayid

Dear Mr. Harper: We are distressed to see the prime minister of Israel being made welcome in Canada on the day that we see his armed forces committing the outrageous crime against the peaceful flotilla, bringing humanitarian aid to the people under siege in Gaza, and murdering over 10 international human rights activists, in international waters.

To welcome Binyamin Netanyahu, who is responsible for this war crime as well as many previous war crimes, including extraducial assassination and violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention, brings sadly, dishonour to the good name of our country, Canada.

We call on our political leaders to condemn this outrageous act of piracy and call for an end to the illegal siege imposed against the 1.5 million people of Gaza, as well as the illegal occupation of Palestinian Territories that Israel has maintained for decades, in defiance of international law and repeated Security Council resolutions.

Yours sincerely,

Ismail Zayid, MD, President, Canada Palestine Association.
