Standing with Israel, Again

(Toronto Sun-Canada) Editorial - Last week the Islamist terrorist group Hizbullah fired missiles at an Israeli military convoy near the Israel-Lebanon border, killing two Israeli soldiers. Canada has officially labelled Hizbullah a terrorist group since 2002. According to Public Safety Canada: "One of the most technically capable terrorist groups in the world, Hizbullah is a radical Shia group ideologically inspired by the Iranian revolution. Its goals are the liberation of Jerusalem, the destruction of Israel, and, ultimately, the establishment of a revolutionary Shia Islamic state in Lebanon, modeled after Iran." An emboldened Hizbullah means an emboldened Iran. Hizbullah is a proxy for Iran and receives funding from them. When Hizbullah thrives, Iran thrives. And when the current Iranian regime wins, everybody else loses. It's important that principled democracies around the world stand up against terrorist thugs like Hizbullah. Israel is the closest thing to a Western liberal democracy in the Middle East. It's the closest thing to being a country like ours. And it's under attack in part for that very reason. This latest aggression should not be tolerated by the international community. Certainly not by Canada. It's time again to stand with Israel.
