Iran’s meddling in the internal affairs of the Palestinians is not new. The Iranians have long been providing Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror groups with money and weapons.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encountered strong criticism on Thursday over his earlier statement condemning the violence on the Israel-Gaza Strip border that excluded any mention of Hamas’ role in stoking Palestinian attacks.
It’s almost expected now, Justin Trudeau, our Liberal Prime Minister, will side with terrorists if given the choice. He did last week when he was asked about a returning ISIS fighter bragging about killing someone and Trudeau called the question divisive.
