Honourable Melanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs
Government of Canada
Dear Minister Joly;
Here is the headline: International community condemns Bnei Brak shooting, other recent terror attacks, US calls violence ‘unacceptable,’ UN chief says it can ‘never be justified’; EU ‘stands with Israel’; Germany urges strong condemnation from all to prevent ‘a new escalation’ in the Times of Israel today, March 30, 2022. Isn’t it time that Western democracies, such as Germany and Canada stopped funding terrorism against Israel and the death of Israelis? It is noteworthy that the last 6 people murdered by Arabs included a Christian Arab and 2 Ukrainian immigrants! Stop funding Jew hatred, stop funding UNRWA which teaches Arab children to murder Jews, denies the existence of the state of Israel and abuses children by making them believe they kill for their God. They kill because their bigoted antisemitic teachers, teach them lies.
The key to a lot of this terror is to demand that President Mahmud Abbas stop rewarding terrorists, under the PA program of pay-to-slay. While Abbas has been shamed into making a weak statement of remorse for the deaths, he would be giving life time salaries to the murderers if they were to be jailed and had not eradicated by the Israeli police, IDF or a well-trained civilian as has been the case in the last week when 11 innocent people were killed.
There are two urgent messages for your governments:
Withhold funds from UNRWA which has educated 3 generations of Arabs to hate and murder, and holds terror inciting events calling for the murder of Jews. The USA has agreed to put funds in escrow until UNRWA can absolutely guarantee all textbooks and teachers’ manuals no longer teach violence but meet UN standards around peace and co-existence.
Demand the Palestinian Authority withdraw its legislation that requires the payment of a salary to reward Arabs who murder Jews; the pay increases for the more Jews killed. This amounts to a life-long pension for the families of terrorists.
Currently, Germany is the main funder of UNRWA so holds the greatest accountability for the murder of Jews, while Canada is the 10th largest funder, a role that has zero rationale on any level. STOP FUNDING TERRORISM!
The PA, is no better than Hamas, a listed terrorist organization, as it incites terror and rewards murder. Such murder is funded by all entities that contribute to the PA coffers. We ask that Canada withhold all funds, and demand these immoral, inhuman practices stop immediately. Abbas himself is calling for more terror, more murder and riots. Here is what Abbas and the PA henchmen have been doing:
“After the PA’s repeated calls for terror and the PA’s repeated support for terror, Arabs murder 11 people in 3 terror attacks in one week:
Sequence of events:
February: The PA, including Abbas, repeatedly calls for terror March 1- 21: PA glorifies terrorists who died in terror attacks March 22: Terrorist murders 4 in Be’er Sheva, PA openly praises him as “Martyr” March 27: Terrorist murders 2 in Hadera, PA is silent March 29: Terrorist murders 5 in Bnei Brak, Abbas forced to issue lame condemnation
After 2 months of intensified PA promoting terror and support for terror attacks, 3 terror attacks by Arabs in one week leave 11 people in Israel murdered. PA Chairman Abbas was the leader of the calls to Palestinians to murder Israelis. For example, at the PLO Central Council meeting in February: “President [Abbas called] in all his speeches to initiate popular resistance.” [Official PA TV, Feb. 8, 2022] PMW has documented that “popular resistance” is the PA call for civilians to carry out terror attacks.”

Canada must act now. Help stop the killing! Stop Jew hatred! Our citizens must know that our money is sent to terrorists and has done nothing for peace.
