Canadian FM Calls to Demilitarize Palestinian Authority, Gaza


Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird called on Thursday for the Palestinian Authority to demilitarize areas of Judea-Samaria and Gaza.

Writing in an op-ed in the Canadian The Globe and Mail, Baird noted that the day after the "shocking" kidnapping of three Israeli teens last week, Gaza terrorists fired rockets at Israel, noting, "What should distinguish these latest attacks is that they have happened under the watch of a new Palestinian government that was announced two weeks ago."
