Stephen Harper is sealing the fate of his future as Prime Minister of Canada. As the leader of a minority government, he is already walking on a tight rope. With his support for the Israeli response to the Hezbollah kidnapping as a proportionate response, he is losing the support of many Canadians who are against a Prime Minister who’s merely a puppet for George W.
After the family of 7 Canadians were killed by Israeli bombs on July 16th, Prime Minister continued to stand by Israel for their war and offered little condolence to family of the victims and was borderline disrespectful to the families for his unquestioned backing of Israel.
In the most recent incident in which Canadian UN observer Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener was killed along with 3 others, Stephen Harper went as far as to put the blame on the UN observers by asking why it “remained manned during what is now, more or less, a war”. With the accuracy of Israel precision weapons, it’s hard to understand how they could have bombed a UN building that was clearly labeled and known as a UN building. The excuse that Hezbollah militants are blending in with the UN observers and therefore that makes it a legal to kill innocent civilians by international law will not fly this time.
Wait, I just found an article from my favourite Israeli newspaper entitled “UN observer: Hizbullah using us as shields” that states that the Canadian UN observer Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener had said that the Hizbollah was using the UN post as a “shield”. So there you have it folks. That’s definitely justification from directing a missile at the UN building.
It’s funny how you can spin a story any which way. Another article entitled “German soldier pointing his weapon at Jewish soldier?” will have you believe from the title that Germany too is taunting Israel. Unbelievable. And yet another propaganda article entitle “Syrian reporter: In Syria there is atmosphere of eve of war” that would have you believe that Syrians are ready to start war with Israel. According to this newspaper, it would seem that every country in the Middle East and Europe are terrorists that want to fight Israel. Last week it was the UK and Iran, this week it’s Syria and Germany. I think the US and Israel are becoming the only 2 countries in the world who aren’t “terrorists”. The term terrorist will have a much different meaning in 10 years. It will be a country who blindly flattens cities and buildings and occupies other countries in order to achieve its political goals, justifying civilian casualties because the “terrorists” are among civilians.
One last article suggests that Israel will turn Lebanon cities into “sand boxes” before it invades the cities on the ground, preventing the risk of Israel soldier casualties.
