Canadian Foreign Minister: Hamas Not Interested in Peace


John Baird, Canada’s Foreign Minister, published a message in which he wrote that Hamas’ rejection of the ceasefire proposal evidences the organization’s lack of interest in peace.

“Canada sees Hamas as an international terrorist organization committed to the destruction of the State of Israel. Al people in the world who love peace must reject terror… We believe that Israel has the right to defend itself,” Baird wrote.
