Eight Major Canadian Lebanese Community Organizations Call on their Bothers & Sisters of the American Lebanese Community members to Vote for President George Bush
For Immediate Release
On behalf of the eight major organizations listed below,representing the
Lebanese-Canadian Community which strongly advocates the Human Rights Charter, cherishes
peace, and believes in the unaniable right of people to pursue happiness, we openly and
fervently call on all our sisters and brothers of the American Lebanese Community to get
out in great numbers and vote to re-lect President George W. Bush in the upcoming November
2, 2004 presidential elections.
We believe that one of the greatest priorities in the fight against terror and religious fundamentalism actually lies in the advocacy for a free,sovereign,multi-cultural, secular and truly democratic Lebanon.
We fully endorse President George W. Bush for a second term as President of the United States.We are basing this endorsement on the President's record of supporting policies we deem to be in line and representative of the aspirations,desires and dreams of the majority of the Lebanese people in both occupied Lebanon and the Diaspora
We in particular support the highly valued principles which the President has articulated in his noble and courageous international campaign against terrorism and the promotion of human rights, democracy, multi culturalism, tolerance, freedom, women's rights and self determination of the Middle East people in general, and the oppressed Lebanese in particular.
We hail President Bush's administration, for adopting the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003, and its full support to the UN Resolution 1559 that calls for the withdrawal of Syrian troops from Lebanon, the dismantling and disarming of all Lebanese and non Lebanese militias, and for the legitimate right of the Lebanese people to run and control their own affairs without any foreign inferences.
Our organizations strongly believe that a strong anti-terrorism US administration
benefits Canada tremendously and assures it's' people freedom and prosperity.We further
believe that President Bush will continue to work hard along with the Canadian government
towards strengthening the bi-lateral relations between our two countries.
May God Bless Canada
And May God Bless America
