One Free World International started 2017 off by hosting the Leader of Canada’s Green Party, Elizabeth May, and leaders from the Canadian Jewish community. After the Green Party’s motion to boycott Israel last fall, OFWI gave Ms. May the chance to share what she has done as Leader to defend against those seeking to use her Party to delegitimize Israel.
Ms. May stated she supports Israel’s right to exist and will continue to be vigilant in her efforts to push for constructive dialogue that encourages Israelis and Palestinians to make peace. Jewish community leaders welcomed her denunciation of anti-Semitism and her pledge to work with the community to grow the Green Party’s support for Israel and defend its right to exist.
