Canada “Stands With Israel”

JewishPress Logo

The Ma’an News Agency reported that Canada’s Foreign Minister John Baird said Wednesday that his country backs Israel’s right to defend its citizens from air assaults by Hamas.

“We fundamentally believe that Israel has the right to defend itself and its citizens from terrorist threats,” Baird said in a statement.

“Far too often, the Jewish people find themselves on the front lines in the struggle against terrorism, the great struggle of our generation. Just last weekend, more than 100 rockets rained down on civilians in southern Israel from positions in the Gaza Strip.

“Canada condemns the terrorist group Hamas and stands with Israel as it deals with regional threats to peace and security.”

  1. Compare Canada's statement with that of the US, which advised Israel to continue to use restraint; in other words, to tie its hands behind its back while being hit by hundreds of rockets.

  2. JoAnn Morris says:

    Thank you Canada for your support. Wish we had a leader in the U.S. who would be strong enough to back Israel.
