JSpaceCanada joins Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Natan Sharansky, as well
as many other Israelis and Diaspora groups worldwide, in condemning provisions of the Jewish
State Bill that is nearing final approval in the Knesset. Two provisions are particularly abhorrent to
Zionism, to traditional Israeli openness and democracy, and to the principles of Israel’s Declaration
of Independence. One provision allows religious communities to exclude other Israelis for any
reason, and another downgrades Arabic as an official language.

We are deeply disturbed over the rising death toll in Gaza this past day. Israel has a right
to defend its borders, but must never use lethal force against unarmed protesters. Hamas
also bears much responsibility for the situation in Gaza by mixing armed combatants with
peaceful demonstrators and encouraging Gazans to breach the border fence.

We join the many Canadians shocked and saddened over the situation in Gaza these past two weeks.
At JSpaceCanada, we sympathize deeply with the Gazan people, who live under both an oppressive regime led by Hamas and a blockade that in combination make life extremely difficult for residents.
