The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

A Newfound Respect for Cletusland*

The Canadian government is not taking the tiresome left-wing stance in response to the Jebaliya school incident—And I could not be prouder. In fact, I can say that for the first time in my adult life, I'm downright proud of that rascally nation to the North!

"Hamas bears a terrible responsibility for this and for the wider deepening humanitarian tragedy," Peter Kent, the new minister of state for foreign affairs, told Reuters in response to the attack.

"The burden of responsibility is on Hamas to stop its terrorist rocketing of Israel."

Hamas, a radical Islamist group, has ruled Gaza since June 2007.

While adding that Ottawa did not yet know much about the incident, Kent said: "Hamas's record is to use civilians – the population and civilian infrastructure – as shields and it would seem quite possible that this is yet another tragic instance."

The utter shock expressed by the liberal reporters at The Star could not possibly be more palpable in the remaining text of the article, incidentally. What's the matter? Have you "fair and balanced" "justice"-seeking types never seen an opposing viewpoint before?

(* Which is what I call Canada, in honor of Cletus, our most regular Canadian reader.)
