The difference between a courageous world leader and Barack Obama

While Barack Hussein Obama would like nothing better than to see Israel made impotent by negotiating a premature ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, condemns Hamas for using civilian human shields, while urging world leaders to side with Israel.

Canadian Press (h/t Frederic F)  As Israeli soldiers defend their country from ongoing violence in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper offered support for the besieged nation. “The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts for which there is no justification,” he said in a recent statement.

Terrorists are deliberately placing people in the path of an Israeli offensive aimed at stopping rocket attacks from Gaza, says Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Harper says there is evidence that Hamas, listed by Canada as a terrorist organization, is using human shields in its attempts to stave off the Israeli offensive.

“The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification,” Harper said in a statement issued Sunday. “It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region.” Harper also called on other world leaders to rally behind Israel as it tries to prevent rockets being fired from Gaza into its territory.

Silence, he suggested, would only embolden Israel’s attackers. “Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions,” Harper said.

“Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict.”

Harper’s statements came as Israel briefly deployed ground troops inside the Gaza Strip. He urged the Palestinian government to disarm Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups operating in Gaza.

Prime Minister Harper’s official press release:

“The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification. It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region.

“Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions. Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict.

“Canada is unequivocally behind Israel. We support its right to defend itself, by itself, against these terror attacks, and urge Hamas to immediately cease their indiscriminate attacks on innocent Israeli civilians.

“Canada reiterates its call for the Palestinian government to disarm Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups operating in Gaza, including the Iranian proxy, Palestinian Islamic Jihad.”
