Do We Have Three Political Monsters In Canada?

“In this besieged strip of land, close to 2 million people live so densely packed that any strike — be it from the air, from the sea or on land — will kill someone more than the intended target. And that someone too often is a child.
As of now, 166 children have been killed and 1,310 have been injured, some of them severely.” Jon Snow

As one watches and sees the heinous slaughter of children in Gaza. The attacks on hospitals, civilians and other innocents, our political leaders remain silent. Not only are they silent on these atrocities but are in fact supporting the child killers. Killing children and civilians and bombing hospitals has been described as “war crimes.” The leader of the country doing this massacre has been called a “war criminal” by some. Yet, our so-called “leaders” grovel at the feet of the perpetrators. What are they afraid of? Surely, our country is not dictated too by a foreign government?

“Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and, to a lesser extent, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair have fallen in line with Stephen Harper’s support of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza. None question the Israeli killing and maiming of hundreds of civilians, including women and children.”
Haroon  Siddiqui, Toronto Star, July 26, 2014.

Still, if our government here at home and the leaders of the opposition won’t even defend innocent human life here in Canada, I guess they are running true to form when they support child killing in another country.        

In our country of Canada, a destroyer of innocent human life even received the “Order of Canada” for his “work.” Therefore, it should not be a surprise our “leaders” support child killing by their “allies.” Here in Canada they won’t even investigate the killing and slaughter of 491 babies born alive and left to die. [1] Which begs the question: Do we have political monsters in Canada also?

Still, our “great leader” had a bird sanctuary named after him in the country that is now slaughtering and maiming children. And some of the residents of that country even danced and sang in praise of the slaughter in Gaza. [2] Which makes one wonder about the ethics and morals of a country that gives birds a sanctuary while killing children, hospital patients and other civilians who get no sanctuary, but instead are slaughtered.

The Irish Times of July 24, 2014 had this to say in an article by Mark Hilliard:
“Professor Damian McCormack of Temple St Children’s Hospital in Dublin was among the Irish medical contingent today. He said in Gaza ‘we have a clear violation of the principles of medical neutrality through the shelling of hospitals.

“‘These are real people and real children; 43 per cent of the population in Gaza are kids. Over 700 are dead now and half of them are children. It’s infanticide.’

“Professor McCormack called on the Israeli ambassador to Ireland to explain his country’s actions or leave. His colleague, Dr Paul Connolly, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, likened the situation in Gaza to a ‘slow grinding genocide’”. ... (emphasis added)

Another brave Norwegian doctor who works in a hospital in Gaza had this to say in a letter:
“Dearest friends, The last night was extreme. The ‘ground invasion’ of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying - all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent.
“The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza's hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment all in Shifa for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS!
“Now, once more treated like animals by ‘the most moral army in the world’ (sic!)....”

In closing, one must ask these questions on the evidence available. Why would any Canadians with respect for human life vote for any politicians who won’t speak out against these atrocities? And do we have three political monsters here in Canada?
