Letter to RCMP Commissioner: Investigate Illegal Israeli Military Recruiting in Canada
Take one minute to write to Rob O'Reilly, chief of staff for the office of the RCMP Commissioner to insist on a thorough investigation in regard to illegal Israeli military recruiting occurring in Canada.
Recently the RCMP indicated they were investigating Israeli military recruitment taking place in Canada.
In early January 2021, evidence has been provided to Rob O'Reilly regarding illegal Israeli military recruitment in Canada.
The new evidence delivered to the RCMP is in addition to evidence provided to federal Justice Minister David Lametti on October 19, 2020, and provided to the RCMP in November 2020. Minister Lametti indicated that the RCMP would investigate.
Le Devoir reported in October 2020 that it is a crime in Canada to recruit anyone for a foreign military.
It is also a crime to aid and abet such recruitment by offering incentives and encouraging any person to serve in a foreign military.
The Foreign Enlistment Act states, “Any person who, within Canada, recruits or otherwise induces any person or body of persons to enlist or to accept any commission or engagement in the armed forces of any foreign state or other armed forces operating in that state is guilty of an offence.”
The only exception would be the recruitment of Israeli citizens who are not Canadian.
