      Canadian Minister Defends Israel at Global Summit


      The Canadian Defense Minister reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself at the Halifax International Security Forum on Sunday.

      Peter MacKay blamed Hamas for the deteriorating situation in the region and asserted Israel’s right to take defensive measures against terrorist entities that seek its destruction.

       "A country has the right to defend itself. A country has the right to exist, and part of that existence means protecting your population, which is what Israel is trying to do," he said.
