CKUT Radio: Gaza Strip Military Occupation - Canadian Complicity
18 Dec 2004
Listen to an interview with Mohamed Omar, an independent Palestinian journalist based in Rafah refugee camp of the southern Gaza Strip. The interview focuses on the Canadian government's relationship to the internationally condemned Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

On December 1st 2004, at the United Nations General Assembly, the Canadian government voted "No" for the first time on a resolution supporting the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, singling a symbolic shift in Canadian foreign policy toward diplomatic support for Israeli Apartheid. The UN vote was issued one day after the Canadian Ambassador to the UN, publicly criticized the UN General Assembly for delivering "one-sided condemnations" of Israel.

The interview also provides a Palestinian perspective regarding Ariel Sharon's so-called "withdrawal plan" for the Gaza Strip, introduced in February 2004. As the Gaza Strip "withdrawal plan" is supported by the Canadian government as an Israeli effort towards peace, the reality of Israeli military occupation in the Gaza Strip continues, with ongoing "Settlement" construction, countless house demolitions and extraordinarily high Palestinian death-tolls.

This interview was produced for CKUT Radio in Montreal by Stefan Christoff, who is a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), a Palestinian-led movement of Palestinian and International activists working to raise awareness of the struggle for Palestinian freedom and an end to Israeli occupation.

Israel is protecting itself against terror. I srael has the right to do so by international law. Israel is killing criminal terrorists and this will help to create a legitimate Palestinian state. It is time for you to tone down your venomous rhetoric and give your hand to Palestinian unity free election and coexistence wit Israel.
