Libby is an honourable example for Canadians who support peace and justice for all in the Middle East.
Libby is the most likely Canadian politician who stands a strong chance to win the struggle against the pro-Israel lobby.
Libby demonstrates the strength of integrity and honesty in confronting misinformation, intimidation and stifling free speech in Canada.
The Pro-Israel lobby in Canada will not stop attacking Libby Davies; it will continue to do so at every turn; for intimidating Canadian politicians is its reason d’être.
Libby must win the next federal elections, and must win big.
Libby must be stronger within the NDP.
Libby must continue – and be strengthened in – her struggle for social justice in Canada and justice and peace for all in the Middle East.
The pro-Israel lobby must be denied the ability to silence or intimidate Libby.
Libby Davies has so far been able to weather the storm of savage attacks against her by the Pro-Israel lobby. In addition to the fact that our lady is a mountain that would not be shaken by the wind – no matter how strong the wind might appear to be – your messages of support and solidarity are enabling this wonderful and principled woman to continue to stand for equal humanity for all, here at home as well as throughout the world; and the Middle East is no exception.
We all know that Libby Davies was not attacked because of a mistake she made in recalling a number (1948 when she was talking about events that took place in 1967); she was attacked for her consistent and persistent support of the oppressed Palestinian people, and for her unwavering promotion of justice and peace for all in the Middle East. Libby did not toe the line; she did not look the other way; she did not keep quit; and she refused to bear false witness. She spoke the truth; and therefore, earned the privilege of being targeted for attack by the forces of darkness, falsehood, intimidation, and misinformation.
Today, I call upon you to help solidify Libby Davies’ position within the NDP. I urge you to contribute financially to the NDP in the name of Libby Davies. Do not feel shy if you can only afford to contribute $20, $10 or even $5 to her re-election campaign. Any amount of contribution will be appreciated, for the number of contributors is as important as the amount of funds contributed.
To donate to Libby’s re-election campaign, make your cheques payable to:
The Vancouver East Federal NDP
And send them to the following address:
138-2416 Main Street
Vancouver, British Columbia
When deciding the amount of your contribution, keep in mind that your contributions to federal political parties entitle you to tax credit.
As a reminder of the real reason that was behind the vicious attacks on Libby Davies, you can find below her statement of May 31, 2010 on the deadly Israeli attack on the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla in international waters.
Hope is the stuff from which life is made!
