United Nations vote on Palestine: Queen's University expert


Queen’s University expert Ariel Salzmann is available to talk about the United Nations’ vote to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state.

Dr. Salzmann, is a history professor who specializes in Islamic and Middle East history, feels the actions of the Conservative government during the United Nations vote has changed Canada’s reputation in the Middle East.

“Thanks to the efforts of its politicians and the sacrifices of its citizens and soldiers, Canada earned respect as an honest broker in the Middle East and as a reliable partner with the United Nations in promoting peaceful resolution of conflict. Apparently, this is no longer the case …” says Dr. Salzmann.
