It’s almost expected now, Justin Trudeau, our Liberal Prime Minister, will side with terrorists if given the choice. He did last week when he was asked about a returning ISIS fighter bragging about killing someone and Trudeau called the question divisive.
Now he has sided with Hamas over Israel.
In his statement on the violence at the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Trudeau denounced Israel while also claiming that facts must be established. Funny that he denounced one side, the side defending itself, while also saying he needs more information.
“Reported use of excessive force and live ammunition is inexcusable. It is imperative we establish the facts of what is happening in Gaza,” Trudeau said in a statement.
“Canada calls for an immediate independent investigation to thoroughly examine the facts on the ground – including any incitement, violence, and the excessive use of force.”
Note that Trudeau calls the, “Reported use of excessive force and live ammunition is inexcusable.” Who reports that it is excessive? The Hamas government of Gaza, a terrorist organization.
Trudeau also calls for an investigation that will look at issues such as “incitement.” There can be no doubt that Hamas, a terrorist organization, has incited people to attack the border. Yet he is not as strident in that part of his statement is he?
I understand Trudeau being concerned about the violence and the loss of life, everyone is, well everyone but the folks at Hamas. It is right to denounce the loss of life but the way Trudeau is doing it lets Hamas off the hook.
Some people may take exception to me repeatedly referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization. There is one simple reason that I do this. Hamas is a terrorist organization that is determined to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as they can.
Who can stand with that? Who can draw a moral equivalency between that position and that of democratic Israel?
In their original charter, Hamas was explicit that their goal was to destroy Judaism.
“The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”
In 2017 the organization attempted to do some PR, tired of people like me pointing out that they are horrible bigots. They admitted that they could accept the 1967 borders and said they dislike Zionists, not Jews.
With near 30 years under the old banner, I’m not sure I believe it.
But that is the side Justin Trudeau is taking. That is the side that Justin Trudeau places on same moral plane as Israel.
Navigating the complexities of the Middle East can be difficult, Justin Trudeau has made it more difficult.
