Canada has listed Hamas as a terrorist entity since 2002 yet sympathetic Media Party organizations still call them a “militant group”. Case in point is this from CP’s Mike Blanchfield titled “Palestinians urge Ottawa to press Israel to stop Gaza attack”:
The Palestinian delegation in Ottawa has asked the Harper government to talk Israel out of its land invasion of Gaza.
The Palestinian statement was issued hours after Israel launched its first major offensive into Gaza in five years, following 10 days of airstrikes aimed at stopping the militant group Hamas from firing rockets at Israeli cities.
“For the past 11 days the world has stood by as the Palestinians of Gaza have been subjected to indiscriminate killings and collective punishment,” the statement said. (see here)
Think about the mindset of a reporter who not only refuses to call Hamas a terrorist organization but is so willing to regurgitate their press releases – it’s sickening.
I’d also love someone more familiar with Canada’s terrorism laws explain to me how a Hamas “delegation” is possibly set up in Ottawa because Blanchfield doesn’t say.
