Israel’s response shows restraint

As diplomats stumble toward a formula to end the latest hostilities between the Hamas-controlled Palestinian territories and Israel, it isn’t hard to figure out which side is doing its best to prevent the senseless death of civilians.

It’s important Canada continues to stand with Israel because we follow similar democratic traditions.

According to the non-partisan Freedom House, Israel is the only “free” country in the Middle East.

But more importantly, Hamas is on Canada’s list of terrorist entities. This is not a political choice either.
