Chr├ętien: Hamas Isn't a Terrorist Group (Stephen Brown, August 26, 2002,
It was another shameful Canadian moment.

Canadian Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien added to his dismal record in the war on terrorism when his government just recently published a list of seven outlawed terrorist organizations in Canada. The murderous Hamas organization was not among them.

The Prime Minister has excused himself by saying that Hamas has a charitable wing that runs schools and hospitals in the Gaza strip and West Bank; only its military wing, he says, should be sanctioned.

What the heck kind of standard is Mr. Chretien adopting here? Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all ran schools and hospitals but they also killed what? fifty million people? Posted by Orrin Judd at August 28, 2002 6:21 PM
