CUPE wants HM Government to condemn Israel

Surprise , surprise a lefty Canadian union wants HM Canadian government to condemn Israel's moves to defend itself. Fortunately HM Government is going to do no such thing.
"Israel has a clear right to defend itself against the continued rocket attacks by Palestinian militant groups which have deliberately targeted civilians," Cannon said. "First and foremost, those rocket attacks must stop. At the same time, we urge both sides to use all efforts to avoid civilian casualties and to create the conditions to allow safe and unhindered humanitarian access to those in need in Gaza."
Harper's longstanding support for Israel was recognized on December 4 when the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations awarded Harper with its first International Leadership Award.
