Isreali Apartheid Week

Mr. Tim Uppal (Edmonton-Sherwood Park, CPC): Uppal.T@parl.gc.ca
 
Mr. Speaker, on a point of order, there have been consultations with all parties, and I hope you would find consent for the following motion: "That this House condemns Israeli Apartheid Week for seeking to delegitimize the State of Israel by equating it with the racist South African apartheid regime, and that this House continues to support a peaceful resolution through a negotiated two-state solution that respects Israel’s right to exist".
 
The Speaker: MilliP@parl.gc.ca

Does the hon. member for Edmonton-Sherwood Park have the unanimous consent of the House to propose this motion?
 
Some hon. members: Agreed.
 
Some hon. members: No.

Mr. Speaker, I also wish to seek the unanimous consent of the House to adopt the following motion:
 
That this House denounce the use of the word apartheid to describe the Israeli policy on Palestinians and the word anti-Semitic to describe any criticism against Israel, and that this House reaffirm its support for Israel’s right to live in peace and security within sound, established borders, and reaffirm its support for the right of the Palestinian people to have its own state within sound borders and to live there in peace and security.
 
The Speaker: 
 
Does the hon. member for Beauharnois-Salaberry have the unanimous consent of the House to move this motion?
