Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau: Stop Funding Pay-for-Slay Policy

December 22, 2022

Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister

Hon. Melanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs

Hon. Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Finance

Hon. Harjit Singh, Minister of International Development

Hon. David Lametti, Minister of Justice

Dear Prime Minister and Honourable Ministers of Canada;

The Canadian Antisemitism Education Foundation urges the Canadian government to cease providing funds that enable, motivate and incentivize the murder of Jews, as is the established practice and legislated policy of the Palestinian Authority operating out of its headquarters in Ramallah, in the territory of Judea.

The Palestinian Authority has enacted a law which provides an automatic salary for life for anyone who kills a Jew. The PA rewards the killers for life, and the law stipulates that if the killer dies while in the act of murder, the PA grants a salary for life to the family of the killer. Arabs are urged to kill any Jewish Israeli whether an infant, an elderly person, a pregnant woman, a rabbi, a student, a labourer or a bureaucrat. Until and unless the PA repeals this ordinance, unprecedented in the rule of law in any nation, CAEF asks that not a penny of Canadian aid should reach the PA. This pay-for-slay policy is abhorrent and Canada should not be complicit.

Here is a detailed reference on this PA law:

Your respective portfolios are pivotal in this decision. Take action now!
