Canada Condemns Hamas, Supports Israel


Canada expressed support for Israel and condemned Hamas.

John Baird, Canadian Foreign Minister announced in a written statement: "We believe that Israel has the right to protect itself and its citizens from terrorist threats. Too often, the Jewish people finds itself on the front line of the war on terror.

"During this past weekend alone, over 100 rockets were fired at civilians in southern Israel. Canada condemns the Hamas terrorist organization and stands at Israel's side."
