The University of Cape Town fails Palestine, embraces Israel

Trudeau made the remarks at a menorah lighting on Parliament Hill Monday, where about 100 parliamentarians gathered to mark the upcoming Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. He said he heard similar concerns from other parties and from members of his own caucus.

Many in the Jewish community criticized the government last month when it moved from voting against an annual resolution on Palestinian self-determination, to supporting it. Others expressed anger and disappointment that Canada's stance changed dramatically from a No to a Yes - jumping over abstaining - and may have signalled a disturbing departure from its traditional support for Israel at the UN.

While, indeed, the UCT Senate decision is a regrettable setback, it is most likely to invigorate pro-Palestine campaigners in South Africa, so that they may take the academic boycott movement to every academic institution in the country that engages with and validates human rights violators in Israel, Palestine or anywhere else in the world.

"The government felt that it was important to reiterate its commitment to a two-states-for-two-peoples solution at a time when its prospects appear increasingly under threat", Trudeau said. "Decisive action taken by the faculty senate in the university delivered a very clear message to Israel's academic institutions, which South African professors could not adapt Israeli crimes, including the crime of apartheid, from the name of scientific collaboration or" academic freedom". We will continue to stand strongly against the singling out of Israel at the UN.

Israel's friends in South Africa are now gloating, welcoming the badly needed respite from Israel's political misfortunes in the country. And we will always, always, speak up against anti-Semitism at home and overseas.

Canada returned to voting with Israel on several other United Nations resolutions singling out the Jewish state this month.

"They were made to feel uncomfortable because of their identity, because of their support of Israel", he said.

The severing of tiesbetween involving the University of Johannesburg and Israel's Ben Gurion University, sounded the alert one of Israel's supporters in South Africa, under the direction of the Southern African Jewish Board of Deputies (SAJBD), that divides out throughout the Nation, warning of the assumed increase of anti-Semitism. "Hatred has no place in Canada and we will continue to condemn it".

If history has proven one thing, "it is the resilience of the Jewish people", Scheer continued. "Here you are again ... publicly - openly - celebrating your culture, your faith and your traditions".
