Foreign Policy with a spine. (part 2)

What does it say if I learned this from a foreign blog?

Canada Suspends Aid to Hamas-Led Gov't




And we're the first western country to do so! Good job Peter!

TORONTO - Canada said Wednesday it was suspending assistance to the
Palestinian Authority because the new Hamas-led government refuses to renounce violence and recognize
Israel. Hamas responded that Ottawa's decision was hasty and unfair.

It was the first government besides Israel to cut off financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority since Hamas won the legislative elections in January, and other nations were expected to follow suit.

Hamas formally took power Wednesday, with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas swearing in its 24-member Cabinet.

Hamas and new Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh insist they won't soften the militant group's violent ideology or formally recognize its longtime nemesis.

Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay said in a statement that Canada had no choice but to suspend assistance and decline any contact with the new Hamas Cabinet.

"The stated platform of this government has not addressed the concerns raised by Canada and others concerning nonviolence, the recognition of Israel, and acceptance of previous agreements and obligations, including the roadmap for peace," MacKay said. "As a result, Canada will have no contact with the members of the Hamas Cabinet and is suspending assistance to the Palestinian Authority."

I just saw it on the CTV website a few minutes ago, yours was second. At least we know it is getting attention, right? About damned time this happened, I will sleep better tonight.

Yes, I can see how sending money to support a death cult that celebrates those who deliberately murder innocent teenagers is the only way to prevent their suffering. You're a 'tard, anon.

A.K. - You found this on the Sandmonkey's website? This has been plastered on the front page of CTV, Neale, and the CBC for the better part of the day.

Jarrett:

I found it at around 3:30 pm, at the time I checked the cbc and ctv website, they had nothing on it. 20 minutes after I posted this, they release the CP wire detailing this. Neale did'nt have it until 5:00pm I think.

Oh well. Its probably porbably becuase yahoo posts the stories in real time, where as the cbc and CTV post their stories in batch.

Anon: I have nothing against supporting the palestinian people, I do however have an issue with supporting the Hamas government. Which is why aid to NGO's will continue, but diplimatic contact will not take place.

The palestinian people deliberately elected a terrorist organization to form government for them, the rest of the world is under no obligation to acknowledge this government.

Anon, I strongly suggest that if you are so worried about them that you and your sympathetic friends hop a plane over right now and provide for them. Decent people with decent government do not and will not deal with them.

Can any other people openly declare war on their neighbour AFTER signing a peace treaty and still expect to get international support?

I doubt it.

Why is there even a discussion? The newly elected Palestinian government wants war. The usual civilised reaction to such a scenario would be sanctions. And in the case of a democracy, where the people CAN change government policies, sanctions do not even hit innocent people by definition.

That's -1 for calling an Arab-Canadian Muslim a "fucking pig". I cannot imagine what came over you.

And if the Palestinians "suffer", I suggest they don't declare war on their neighbours. I cannot think how increased Israeli wrath is very helpful at all. And the murder of more innocent Israeli civilians by Hamas doesn't help "Palestine" quite as much as many might think.

In contrast to popular belief killing Jews is not making the world a better place. It has often been attempted, but it never worked, even when it was expertly done and quite successful on a quantitative scale.

"WHO IS ON WHOS LAND, WHO IS INVADING WHOS LAND, ANSWER THAT. YOU FUCKING PIG"

First you're going to need to tell me who "whos" is. I've never met him. I know a Hans, but he doesn't own any land.

And I hear that "who" recently gave up invasion to play baseball. First base.

Anon are you a member of the hamas political gang or just a proud parent?


And you spelled "piece" and "who's" wrong.

"And you spelled "piece" and "who's" wrong."

These people have always had problems with words that sound like "peace".

I find it very worrying that he feels so much sympathy for those who commit terrorist acts in the name of Islam but insists on calling an Arab Muslim who doesn't kill people on either side a "fucking pig". He is, and I didn't think that was even possible, worse than a racist, while including all the features of a racist.

To answer his question: Arab armies invaded Jewish land. Thrice.

But the important question remains, of course: Who's on third?

US is and was the first country to cut the relation and funds to HAMAS

Winston - You are correct. What the Canadian government did was cut funding to the Palestinian Authority as soon as the Hamas party was sworn in.
