In the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, Canada’s state-funded media network, CBC, has come under criticism for its biased coverage. The network referred to the Islamist Palestinian group Hamas as an “Islamic group” and a senior terrorist as a “military commander” while Israelis were being targeted and subjected to violence.
Ezra Levant, CEO of Rebel News, has been sharing shocking images and videos from Israel that highlight the brutal nature of the attacks. Levant drew a comparison between the current situation and the Jew-hating attacks of the Holocaust, describing it as “Nazism but in Arabic.”
The terrorist group Hamas launched a series of attacks in multiple cities in Israel, targeting civilians and killing innocent people in their homes. This onslaught from air, sea, and land resulted in the loss of lives and the taking of hostages. These attacks coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, a significant event in Israeli history.
However, instead of condemning these acts of terrorism, Liberal MP Iqra Khalid referred to Israel’s defense against the attacks as “horrific violence.” This response raises concern about the understanding and acknowledgment of the threat faced by Israel and its citizens.
The issue of the Canadian government’s association with individuals linked to terrorism and human rights atrocities has also been highlighted. Last month, the Canadian House of Commons welcomed a Nazi Waffen SS veteran Varoslav Hunka during a state visit by Volodymyr Zelenskyy. This incident of celebrating an elderly war criminal is not an isolated incident but rather indicative of a pattern of cozying up to those with questionable backgrounds.
In 2018, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau provided $50 million to the UN Palestinian “refugee” agency, which has been linked to terrorism. This raises concerns about the allocation of taxpayer funds and support for organizations that have been associated with terrorist activities.
Furthermore, CUPE Local 3906, a Canadian labor union representing academic workers, expressed support for the terror attacks in Palestine, stating that “Palestine is rising.” This union’s position raises questions about the alignment of their values with organizations that promote violence and terrorism.
The situation has also led to disturbing developments within Canada itself. Videos have surfaced showing rallies in Toronto where people are seen celebrating the terrorist attacks in Palestine. This displays a concerning level of support and endorsement for violence and terrorism within Canadian communities.
The casualty numbers in Israel continue to rise, with over 300 Israelis killed and dozens taken hostage and held in Gaza. The conflict shows no signs of abating, and the international community must continue to condemn acts of terrorism and support the right of all individuals to live in peace and security.
To stand against the unprovoked attacks on Israeli citizens, Rebel News has launched a petition calling for support. Canadians can sign the petition on the Canada Stands with Israel website to show solidarity in these difficult times. As the situation unfolds, it is crucial for accurate reporting and fair coverage to ensure a deeper understanding of the complexities of the conflict.
