An announcement by Liberal MP Anthony Housefather that he will not back a NDP motion in support of Palestine has led to a war of words between the MP and a high-ranking Palestinian representative.

Mr. Housefather, in a March 10 post on X, said he would “strongly and forcefully oppose” the NDP motion calling for a ceasefire in Gaza when Parliament votes on March 18.

If passed, the motion would “reverse 50 years of Canadian foreign policy and unilaterally recognize a Palestinian state thus rewarding Hamas for its pogrom of Oct. 7,” Mr. Housefather said, referring to the date the terrorist group invaded Israel, killing approximately 1,200 people and kidnapping hundreds of its citizens.

His social media post brought a swift response from Mona Abuamara, the chief representative of the Palestinian General Delegation to Canada.
