Solidarity for Peace
Without comment on Harper's initial comments regarding the latest fighting in Lebanon (althought you can probably guess what it would be from my previous post) I would like to point out that its not just an exlusively Conservative view. There are many conservatives who disagree as well as many Liberals who do agree:
OTTAWA – Nova Scotia MP Scott Brison expressed his solidarity with the State of Israel following the unprovoked attacks and kidnappings of Israeli citizens outside of Gaza and at the Lebanese border.I would like to think of this as not a partisan issue and that all parties in Canada would put full efforts into finding a peacefull solution, no matter how impossible that dream my be.
“Israel not only has the right but the absolute duty to protect itself and its citizens from terror attacks. In a region that is already a powder keg, the coordinated actions of Hamas and Hezbollah - both of which are on Canada’s terrorist list – can only raise the tensions and elevate the risks for all parties,” affirmed Mr. Brison.
