Conservatives slam Trudeau for failing to condemn Hamas in Gaza Strip violence

Andrew Scheer

CONSERVATIVE Party Leader Andrew Scheer on Wednesday, commenting on the recent clashes between residents of the Gaza Strip and the Israel Defence Forces, slammed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for ignoring the role of Hamas in inciting these clashes.

In a statement, Scheer said: “The clashes in the Gaza Strip have resulted in the loss of dozens of lives, and injuries to many more. Among those injured is a Canadian citizen, Dr. Tarek Loubani. We hope for his quick recovery, and wish to see the circumstances of his injury investigated promptly and fully. Canada’s Conservatives are saddened by the loss of lives in this conflict, knowing well that many have been led into this situation by Hamas – a terrorist organization that places no value on human life.

“In condemning the Israeli forces, Justin Trudeau ignores the role that the terrorist organization Hamas has played in inciting these clashes. In responding to these events with nothing but criticism of Israel, Justin Trudeau has failed Canadians on the international stage once again.

“Reports have indicated that armed members of Hamas’ security forces were among those who have attempted to breach the Israeli border, and were among those killed in clashes with the IDF. Hamas’ actions are sadly typical of an organization with a well-documented record of carrying out terrorist attacks against innocent civilians in Israel and brutally repressing dissent among the people they govern.

“We also call on Israel to take every possible precaution to ensure that unarmed people are not harmed as Israeli soldiers exercise Israel’s right to defend its borders.”
