Montreal, October 29th, 2018
Palestinian and Jewish Unity condemns the odious and criminal attack by the extreme-right militant and Trump devotee, Robert Bowers which resulted in the deaths of eleven members of the Jewish community of Pittsburgh and the wounding of six others, all at prayer at the Tree of Life synagogue on Saturday morning, October 27th, 2018. This crapulous hate-crime is the bitter fruit of the rise of the new fascism which calls itself the ‘Alt-Right’ movement. We express our deep sympathy with the bereaved families and friends of the victims of this senseless crime.

MESSAGE from the Coalition for Justice and Peace in Palestine

This message briefly outlines the campaign and invites you to start taking action towards this goal immediately, during the various social and family gatherings that will mark the coming ‘Holiday Season’.
In the press release that was sent out to launch the campaign, the spokespersons for the coalition stated: “We must stop believing in the false pronouncements of peace of the Israeli State and in the roadmap of its US sponsor. Because, in practise, under the cover of the hyper-showcased Gaza ‘disengagement’, Israel is moving ahead with a much more significant expansion of its settlements in the West Bank, and continues the illegal construction of its apartheid wall, gradually reducing the occupied Palestinian territories into a disconnected patchwork of mini-bantoustans.” (more…)
