jay ,   usa   (10.14.06)
Wish we have American candidates who are not scared frightened to tell such a truth to their voters. That day is coming, though.

4. Spine at last
Dr.Joji Cerian ,   Aluva India   (10.14.06)

6. Experts
Ben Hur ,   Manhattan, USA   (10.14.06)
Human Rights "expert??" Says who?
7. Unfortunately, not enough
David ,   Marietta USA   (10.14.06)
Better luck next time I guess.. What is it with these "liberals" ? So full of anger, and venom, and hubris. Our anti-Semetic American liberals are just as bad. Hitler would be proud of the lot!
8. Ignatieff is a brain dead liberal
Sigfried S. Kuhn ,   Aberdeen   (10.14.06)
Exactly who is it that decided that Ignatieff is a "human rights expert"? I watched another so-called "expert", Kenneth Roth, acknowledge that Israel warned Lebanese civilians to leave fore an imminent attack. Yet this misguided mope still accused Israel of war crimes because the IDF didn't make sure that the civilians had left before attacking. Can you believe thaat a rational human being would make such a stupid statement? What he said was that when Israel is attacked, it can't defend itself because the terrorists hide among civilians so that any attack against terrorists that results in civilian deaths is a war crime. This lack of ability to reason is typical of leftist, anti-Israel beliefs among the Liberal Party. Just because he is a former Harvard official doesn't make him sane or smart. Any Canadian Jew who votes for this fool should be institutionalized.
9. Liberals
Navi ,   Montreal, Canada   (10.14.06)
Unfortunately the overly "liberal" viewpoint that many Canadians ascribe to has clouded their view of reality.
10. Support Steven Harper - do not let Liberal Party run Canada
Roni   (10.14.06)
11. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes from Quebec.
Tahl ,   Israel   (10.14.06)
This province is notorious for its antisemetism, or anti-Israel sentiments (same thing in my dictionary).
12. Israel war crime charge roils Canada politics
Daniel ,   Lod, Israel   (10.14.06)
They say; "public memory is short". I never knew it is so short! As far as I remember last war with Lebanon was started by them, and like cowards; as always; they made children shield. How can you blame Israel for your own crime? It's they; who were directly and deliberately firing at Israeli civilians.
13. This is what idiots who have America as a neighbor talk like
Jen   (10.14.06)
They have no sense of understanding. Canada has America for a neighbor. Israel has 250 million Islamofascists (55 million are probably moderate). They have no sense of perspective. Besides this guy is a liberal. What do you expect?
14. Ignatieff
Brod ,   USA   (10.14.06)
He may well be a Romanist anti-semite under the cover of human rights crap dominated by Islamist-Jihadists.
15. Go look at Warcrimes Canada did to Red Indians
Alan ,   SA   (10.14.06)
16. Why do you deny the truth????
Noora ,   Bahrain   (10.14.06)
This is the truth that the whole world knows about...Israelis are the only ones who are blind to crimes committed by IDF in Lebanon... be brave and admit it, if you consdier your self democracts
17. Danger Noora, #16 You are reading a Zionist Web Site
David ,   Marietta USA   (10.14.06)
What happens if your Islamo-Fascist security people discover what seditious material you read or where you post? You might get deported to Canada. (Or much, much worse, "Palestine") Be careful, dear, where you tread!
18. Lebanon/Hizbullah/Syria/Iran WAR AGAINST Israel & FREE WORLD
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.14.06)
Lebanon's government colluded with Hizbullah in unprovoked, vicious acts of war against Israel. Lebanese army radars were used to lock in Israeli targets for Hizbullah missile crews. YNETNEWS (08.12.06, 16:52) Siniora accepts deal, praises Hizbullah ...steadfastness of resistance fighters in field was very important,',7340,L-3290107,00.html Islamists lie about the number of civilians wounded and killed. Photo Fraud in Lebanon's new movie: Israel repeatedly warned Qana residents several days in advance via leaflets and radio to leave the area - 150 rockets were launched from Qana - these rockets killed 18 Israelis and wounded hundreds. Less numbers of Israelis were killed than Lebanese because Israel does not immorally use Israeli civilians as human shields. Israel protected her citizens - over one million Israelis lived for one month in bomb shelters. Israel's third largest city Haifa, was under regular rocket barrage. Hundreds of rockets were fired at northern Israel every day, many times more than were daily fired at Britain during the Blitz. Iran's guerrilla army Hizbullah rained down over 4,000 rockets on Israeli population centers. The rockets packed with thousands of metal ball bearings to maximize the suffering of Israeli victims. Iran's terrorist army Hizbullah committed war crimes using Lebanese civilians as human shields to protect rocket launching teams - setting up rockets and other weapons in apartment blocks, schools and mosques. Embedded in densely populated civilian areas, Hizbullah despicably shoot from inside mosques, hospitals and schools in south Lebanon. Images show Hizbullah using high-density residential areas to launch rockets:,,19955774-5007220,00.html Global jihadists Hizbullah's goal is the murder of every Jew on earth. On October 22, 2002 Hizbullah's leader Nasrallah told Lebanon's Daily Star: "If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide." The purpose of the PLO as enshrined in its charter is the destruction of Israel. PLO terrorists were implanted into Israel through Oslo "peace" accords. The Hamas Charter states: "Israel, by virtue of its being Jewish and of having a Jewish population, defies Islam and the Muslims... Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it..." Iran proclaim repeatedly they intend to destroy America and wipe Israel off the map. Iran is dangerously close in achieving nuclear capability to execute their genocidal goal. Hamas and Iran's terrorist army Hizbullah, fully trained and armed with the most advanced sophisticated military equipment fight Iran's war against Israel and the free world. The ultimate goal is the entire world subjugated under Islamist rulers. Surrounded by 22 huge, hostile Arab nations, tiny Israel's battle for survival is a fight for freedom and human rights for all nations.
19. Hypocrite Ignores PA Call for MURDER of JEWS & AMERICANS
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.14.06)
PA/PLO are the recipients of mega U.S. tax dollars. Americans are immorally forced to finance jihad against Jews and Americans. The planned genocide of Jews by PA/PLO/Hamas, Hizbullah-Syria-Iran et al, breaks international law and must be addressed by the International Criminal Court. The U.S. EU, UN Road Map Global Islamic Terror State Two in Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem will reduce tiny Israel to indefensible 6-10 miles wide Auschwitz borders facilitating Jewish annihiliation and advancing global jihad's unopposed march to world conquest. The Palestinian Authority teach through their mosques, media, summer camps, and public education system, that murdering Jews is a religious obligation. Human bomb killers of Jewish innocents are revered and considered heroes by PA society. Palestinian Authority society are taught murdering Jews is the highest goal in life and attains paradise: The Palestinian Authority hailed as heroes the terrorists who brutally murdered defenseless 8 months pregnant Jewish Gaza mother, Tali Hatuel, and four little daughters in Gush Katif in May 2004. Thousands of Palestinian Authority Muslims celebrate in the streets and pass out sweets whenever Jewish innocents, including children, are murdered by human bomb killers. Effigies of burning buses are features of PA school pageants and summer camps. Streets and soccer teams are named after suicide bombers. Adults and children train in terrorist training camps. Terrorists have been captured at Israeli checkpoints posing as ambulance drivers, doctors and patients. Islamists have hidden explosive suicide belts under gurneys carrying sick children and in the garments of pregnant women. Red Crescent ambulances transport terrorists, weapons and bombs. Broadcast from Gaza mosque, Oct 13 2000, Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiya, on Palestinian Authority TV (transcribed by Memri): "Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them..."
20. What news does he read???
Adam M. ,   NYC   (10.14.06)
Is he unaware that careful investigations of what happened at Cana -- made by websites and not by the popular media -- have revealed that this story was a phony??? The guy is cranking about an alleged war crime that never happened. He should at least keep up with the published facts before he shoots off his mouth.
21. Views from Canada for 13 Jen and 15 Alan
Ryan ,   Calgary, Canada   (10.14.06)
The liberals always try there best to appease quebec and ontario immigrants, by saying this useless full of lies leftist crap, they are in very poor shape in this country, this guy isn't even the leader. Real Canadians support Israel 100% and wish to engage these damn arab terrorists yesterday. Don't forget that this is the same party that didn't want to fight the Nazis either. Jen, you have no sense of anything don't judge us by some guy spewing leftist crap, it might just be us that comes and saves you from your neighbours, this isn't 1967. Smarten up. Should I think that all Israelis are gay, cause you had calls for a gay pride parade. You shouldn't talk about things you know nothing about, most Canadians also, don't like Americans that much. We find them arrogant, but we are friends and partners in this world. Alan-- that is the most hypocritical thing I've heard in my life, Alan doesn't sound like an arab name, maybe you should read your own history, you've done worse to the indians. Loser.
22. Ryan (21) be fair.
sk ,   USA   (10.14.06)
You are probably right that most Canadians don't like Americans that much (and most Americans don't pay enough attention to Canadians to know or care), but Canada has NOT been much of a partner with the US for years now. Nor, frankly, has Canada been much of a friend of Israel. (Sorry, but I don't know what a "real Canadian" is.) Canada has for years been more of a partner with Old Europe, and it has disarmed just as Old Europe has. Indeed, even simple things like lumber deals between the two countries have become problematic. You can't make that go away by blaming it all on an unrepresentative fringe. It's great that you've gotten a decent PM, though. If only you could unload Quebec.
23. Ignatieff
Anna ,   Canada   (10.15.06)
Ignatieff's campaign is driven more by polls than by principles. There are more Muslims than Jews in the country. Simple. Could be time to cut up my Liberal card...
24. honest
Js ,   Montreal, Qc   (10.15.06)
At least Ignatieff speaks the truth (and he is not pointing the finger at Israel alone for war crimes).
25. Harper practices his Bible! God bless him.
26. I love Harper!
27. Ignatieff's moral equivalency
Drumgoole ,   Newark NJ   (10.15.06)
I just love these self-appointed "human rights" experts. None of them really care about human rights. What they care about is harming the US and Israel by their use of moral equivalency. To these moral fools, a man who fights back against an armed mugger is also guilty of assaulting the mugger and if he injures the criminal, should be responsible for paying medical expenses. With Ignatieff, the matter goes deeper. This hypocrite claims to support Israel because he wants some of the Jewish vote or else he can't acknowledge his bigotry. Fortunately, these morons were not around during WWII or else the US and the allies would have never defeated the nazis or the Japanese.

29. Qana - Media's HATE for Israel & The FREE WORLD
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.15.06)
Iran's guerrilla army Hizbullah, fired hundreds of rockets at northern Israel every day, many times more than were daily fired at Britain during the Blitz. The rockets packed with thousands of metal ball bearings to maximize the suffering of Jewish victims. Hundreds of thousands of Israelis fled to the south. Over one million Israelis were forced to live in bomb shelters for one month. In Lebanon, the mainstream media conducted a vicious propaganda war against tiny Israel and the free world - colluding with Hizbullah terrorists in deceiving the world's people with fabrications and staged productions - wicked lies designed to make Israel's moral war of self-defense against unprovoked acts of war from Lebanon - appear as immoral and evil. What really happened at Qana: Fake Lebanese casulties reported by the media: Photo Fraud in Lebanon's new movie: Images show Hizbullah using high-density residential areas to launch rockets:,,19955774-5007220,00.html In addition to rescuing the kidnapped IDF soldiers, Israel's main goal was to eliminate the rocket threat from Lebanon. The U.S. EU and UN via the UN resolution were highly successful in preventing Israel from acheiving this goal vital to Israel's security. Europe conducts her deadly political war against Israel: Last update - 22:20 04/09/2006 Europe nixes landing rights for El Al planes with IDF cargo By Zohar Blumenkrantz, Haaretz Correspondent A number of European states are refusing to allow El Al cargo planes carrying Israel Defense Forces equipment from stopover landings in their airports. The refusal came from states considered friendly with Israel, including Britain, Germany and Italy, according to Captain Etai Regev, the chairman of El Al's pilots' union. According to Regev, El Al flights bearing heavy loads that arrive from U.S. bases "are not given approval by European states to make stopover landings for refueling, for political reasons. "As a result, cargo planes are taking off from the U.S. with much lighter weight, and are reaching Israel with significantly fewer munitions than needed." Regev called this "a substantial blow to state defense." In the cruel, global war to subjugate all nations under Islamic rulers, the mainstream media and Western leaders betray Israel and the Free World's people. We are witnessing the death of Western civilization.
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (10.15.06)
Bible, Leviticus 24:17 "If a man takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death" Black Africans are the indigenous people of Sudan and are the majority population. The black Southern Sudanese Christians explain what "peace" means: If you agree to become a Muslim, you will have peace. If you reject Islam, you are at war. From 1955-1973, 1.5 million Christians were slaughtered by the Arab Muslim government in Khartoum. From 1983-2005, two million more Christians died from Khartoum's jihad. Murdering infidels is not considered a crime. Non-Muslim infidels are regarded as not entitled to human rights. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been raped. Hundreds of thousands of Christian children and women taken for slaves. In the refugee camps, the Islamo-Fascist religious supremacist Khartoum government requires refugees to become Muslims in order to receive food and water. The genocide has resulted in the largest population of refugees on earth since the Second World War. The jihad in Sudan against Darfur's black African Muslims by Khartoum's racist Arab Muslim regime began in 2003. 400,000 black Muslims are dead. STOP Genocide - STOP Slavery - FREE the Slaves Bible, Exodus 21:16 "He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death"
