As you are an appreciated donor and supporter, we would like to bring this urgent matter to your attention.
Of 13 resolutions to be debated at the Green Party’s convention in August, two deal with foreign policy – and both are targeted against Israel.
The first resolution is for the Green Party to actively pursue the revoking of the charitable status of JNF Canada! To make matters worse, Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party, chose to sponsor this effort to target us.
As you know, JNF helps to build important projects in Israel that benefit ALL residents and are the world’s leading environmental organizations. Recently we have supported a shelter for abused women, a PTSD Centre, recreation areas at a variety of hospitals, playgrounds for special needs children and much more.
The second resolution would endorse Boycott-Divestments-Sanctions (BDS) against Israelis and Israeli companies. It is a well-known fact that BDS has been widely rejected for being discriminatory and counterproductive to peace.
We are workingwith CIJA in a letter writing campaign to send a strong message to the Green Party. By speaking out, you can help us defend JNF and Israel from political attacks.
