I find it incredible:
"Israeli army spokespeople say they have no records of any of those strikes."
Two posts ago, I noted the inane, cruel and arrogant comment to the Canadian press by Canada's Minister of Status of Foreign Affairs, Peter Kent. He blames Hamas for the deaths of the Palestinians sheltering in the UN school.
Just now I read another inane, cruel and arrogant comment to the Canadian press by another ill-informed, biased Canadian government representative: acting Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, who also blames Hamas for the deaths and injuries of the Palestinians in Gaza today.
"Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff says Israel is justified in taking military action to defend itself against attacks by Hamas from the Gaza Strip.
'Canada has to support the right of a democratic country to defend itself,' he told reporters in Halifax today after speaking to a forum of business leaders on the economy.
'Israel has been attacked from Gaza, not just last year, but for almost 10 years. They evacuated from Gaza so there is no occupation in Gaza.'"
I guess Mr. misinformed Minister Ignatieff forgot to read history--and he teaches university classes! The Palestinians have been attacked by the Israeli military for 60 years. Israel has sealed off the Gaza Strip, people are not free to "de-occupy" from there.
Incredibly, in defense of Israel Mr. misinformed Minister states that "Canada has to support the right of a democratic country to defend itself," yet, logically, then, as Hamas is the democratically elected government of the people of Gaza, then Canada must also support the right of the Palestinian people in Gaza to defend themselves.
Is that not right, Mr. Minister of misinformation!!?
I think the Canadian ministers should listen to Health Official Raed Arini of the overwhelmed Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. He is cited in the first article I linked to, with the mind-boggling statement by the Israeli army spokespeople that there is NO RECORD of these strikes--these Israeli army reps too need to pay attention to Arini. Arini states clearly from his eye-witness of account of terribly injured people and disfigured dead bodies:
"The reason for death is the Israeli army," Arini said, as medics rushed in with more wounded people.
