The Canadian Arab Federation deplores the terrorist attack on the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec

 Mosqu PIC

(TORONTO, January 30, 2017)— The Canadian Arab Federation deplores the terrorist attack on the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec in Quebec City and extends its deepest condolences to the families of the victims and their friends. The attack resulted in the death of 6 and injury of 8 innocent god fearing worshipers.

This is not the first such attack on the Centre or on Islamic or Arab institutions; as the same centre was the subject of a hate crime back in July 2016. Many other Muslim and Arab institutions across the country have been subjected to various and repeated violent attacks.

“These repeated attacks indicate a failure of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and the law enforcement agencies in their duty to protect all Canadians” stated Mohamed Boudjenane CAF Acting President.

This incident and countless others in this country and across the globe are a clear result of the climate of vilification of Arabs and Muslims in Canada and around the world promoted, not just by Mr. Trump in the US, but also in Canada by the xenophobic policies of the previous Harper Government and local hate groups.

As we acknowledge Mr. Trudeau and his government’s efforts to deal with Muslims and Arabs as main stream Canadians, and we applaud the Minister of immigration’s decision to offer refugee status to those affected by the recent Trump decision to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

“CAF calls on the governments of Canada and Quebec to take all the necessary steps to stem the tides of Islamophobia and to treat seriously and expeditiously any threats of violence against our communities. Much is needed to reverse the toxic and poisonous atmosphere recent events have created abroad and at home” added Samih Mokbel CAF former Vice President.

About the Canadian Arab Federation:
Established in 1967, the Canadian Arab Federation is a national, non-partisan, non-profit and membership based organization. CAF represents Canadian Arabs on issues relating to public policy.

Canadian Arab Federation MEDIA RELEASE La Fédération Canado-Arab

(Toronto, November 11, 2016) – The Canadian Arab Federation salute the Green Party of Canada’s proposed consensus on the issue of Palestine/ Israel
On November 9, 2016, the Green Party of Canada announced that Elizabeth May and its former justice critic Dimitri Lascaris had achieved a consensus on a resolution regarding Palestine and Israel.
This resolution constitutes a strong and principled stand for the human rights of the long-suffering Palestinian people. The resolution calls for an arms embargo on Israel, a ban on the importation into Canada of products made in Israel’s illegal settlements, an investigation by the International Criminal Court into potential war crimes committed against the Palestinian people, and divestment by the Government of Canada from corporations that profit from Israel’s decades-long, brutal occupation of Palestinian territories. The resolution also expresses support for the right of return of Palestinian refugees and calls on Israel to accord equal rights to Palestinians living in Israel. Currently, Israel has in place over 50 racist laws that disadvantage its impoverished Palestinian population.
For too long, Western governments have given unequivocal support to Israel even as the state of Israel engaged in torture (including the torture of children), collective punishment, extrajudicial assassination, and arbitrary arrest and detention of peaceful protesters.
Moreover, although there is near universal agreement that Israel’s settlements constitute a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, Western governments have done nothing to stop those settlements even as they acknowledged that the settlements are a serious obstacle to peace.
For far too long, Palestinian-Canadians and millions of other Canadians who care deeply about the plight of the Palestinian people have been voiceless in Canada’s Parliament. The leadership of the Green Party of Canada has courageously determined to give them a voice.

We thank Elizabeth May for her support of this principled resolution, and we call on the members of the Green Party of Canada to support it.

Plusieurs organisations musulmanes et arabes écrivent aux chefs de parti

Plusieurs organisations musulmanes et arabes locales et nationales canadiennes ** ont envoyé une letter (Lettre envoyée et réponses recues) à tous les chefs des partis fédéraux exprimant leurs aspirations et leurs préoccupations. Voici * le lien qui comporte les lettres qui ont été envoyées à chaque chef de parti: les conservateurs, les néo-démocrates, les libéraux, les verts et le Bloc québécois et les réponses que nous avons reçues.

En se basant sur leurs réponses *, sur le bilan de chaque parti au cours des dernières années, sur les déclarations faites par les chefs de partis et de candidats d’influence et de premier plan au cours de cette campagne électorale, et en tenant compte de la probabilité réaliste que chaque parti arrive au pouvoir, nous concluons ce qui suit :

=> Les Arabes et les musulmans canadiens ont une grande responsabilité à VOTER à cette élection. Plusieurs intérêts sont en cause, non seulement pour les minorités, mais pour l’ensemble du Canada.

=> Le NPD semble être le parti qui servira le mieux le Canada et la population canadienne et d’inverser les effets négatifs que les conservateurs de Stephen Harper ont causé au cours des neuf années au pouvoir. Le NPD a répondu positivement à tous les points que nous avons soulevés et il a préconisé les mêmes positions tout au long de leur dernier mandat comme opposition officielle.

=> Le Parti Vert plaide pour de nombreuses causes importantes et respecte des normes morales élevées. Il est un ardent défenseur des droits de la personne et des droits des minorités et son influence sur la scène politique sont importants, même s’il ne vise pas à former le gouvernement ou faire partie d’une coalition au pouvoir.

=> Le Bloc Québécois est un parti marginal régional qui a épousé certaines positions xénophobes et antimusulmanes dans le passé. Leur chance de former le gouvernement ou faire partie d’une coalition au pouvoir est pratiquement inexistante.

=> À ce jour, le Parti Libéral n’a pas répondu à notre lettre. Il a pris des positions positives soutenant les libertés religieuses et à la défense des citoyens canadiens à l’étranger, bien qu’il ait appuyé le projet de loi C-51. Ses positions sont proches des conservateurs dans de nombreux dossiers, notamment en matière de politiques étrangères.

=> Le Parti Conservateur n’a pas répondu à notre lettre et n’a pas accusé réception de celle-ci. Au cours des années qu’il a été au pouvoir, ses politiques ont eu des effets dévastateurs sur les droits et libertés et la tolérance au Canada. Ses politiques étrangères ont affecté négativement la position du Canada comme un pays respectant la paix et les droits humains.
