To the Editor,
As a Canadian, I truly am ashamed of our federal government voting against the Palestinians.
I would bet if it were put to a vote, 90 per cent of Canadians would vote to back the Palestinian entry.
It has always seemed strange to me that a people who had endured a holocaust would want to visit one on another people.
But Israeli deputy defense minister Matan Vilnai in 2008 proposed “a bigger holocaust if Gaza continued to resist.”
Israel, not Hamas, is the region’s pariah. Israel’s leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, has never shown any interest in peace and his mission is the complete takeover of Palestinian lands.
The UN just put Israel, the U.S., Canada and the Yankee panderer, Stephen Harper, in their place and it’s about time.
