Bush: Hezbollah, Syria, Iran Must be Confronted
Oh and when are they going to denounce Israel for its continued destruction of infrastructure? "Canada is going to continue to speak up for the protection of people and people's rights and the cessation of violence," said MacKay, adding that a long-term solution will not be achieved by a unilateral pullback by Israel. Gee when are they going to speak up about this;Sidon full of refugees as Israel destroys more infrastructure ...
I particualrly liked McKay's quote about taking history into consideration when saying Canada unconditionally supports Israel. Is that Stockwell Days history or Lester Pearsons? And speaking of history what about Richard Cohens comments in the Washington Post;
The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now. Israel fights Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, but its most formidable enemy is history itself.
