The Globe and Mail: Israeli bombs kill 7 Canadians in Lebanon. ⇒

   17 July 2006, early morning

Has Harper said anything one way or another on Canada's position on these attacks. I wonder if these deaths will force him to.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.



  1. Peter MacKay made some comment this morning. I missed it.

  2. I think Harper said something about Israelís actions being self defense. I canít be sure, though.

  3. I don’t have a direct quote, but the Globe has this to say on his opinions:

    “Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who had a hand in crafting a statement from G8 leaders yesterday that called on both sides in the conflict to release prisoners and halt their offensive actions, said on Thursday he believed Israel’s response to a raid by Hezbollah into Israeli territory had been measured.”

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
