CKUT Radio: Gaza Strip Military Occupation - Canadian Complicity

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.
