Canada condemns Hamas' resistance to IDF invasion

Canada, a virtual nullity on the world stage after eight years under the Harper regime, has once again showcased its pro-Israel bona fides with this press release from FM John Baird:

Baird Condemns Hamas for Broken Ceasefire

August 1, 2014 - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today issued the following statement:
“Canada is appalled that Hamas, only hours into the ceasefire, has yet again blatantly violated this agreement.
“The abduction by Hamas of an Israeli soldier is a disgraceful and repugnant act and once again shows Hamas’s complete disregard for peace and the well-being of the Palestinian people.
“Hamas has lost all credibility, and we must continue to work to isolate this terrorist organization that values death over peace.
“The people of Gaza have suffered greatly under Hamas’s reign, and it is high time that their needs are put first over their rulers’ blind ambition.
“Further violence could have been avoided if Hamas had immediately laid down its arms and demilitarized Gaza.
“Israel will now be forced to continue defending itself as long as Hamas continues its rocket attacks against civilians and its campaign of terror through its vast tunnel network; Hamas will be solely to blame for any further loss of life.
“Canada mourns the loss of life in Gaza and Israel and hopes that Palestinians and Israelis will one day soon realize true peace and security.”

There you have it. That invading soldier was not captured, he was "abducted".

Capturing an enemy soldier is "disgraceful and repugnant."

We must continue to work to isolate the democratically elected government of Gaza.

Further violence could be avoided if only Hamas acquiesced to unhinged Israeli brutality.

Only Hamas is to blame for further Israeli-incurred Palestinian deaths from IAF missiles and rockets and IDF tank shells, mortars, and rockets.

But of course we mourn the loss of life etc...

Bullshit like this is why Canada has lost all credibility on the world stage.
