Olmert: Must ensure that Gaza aid doesn't strengthen Hamas
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert met with Canadian Foreign Minister Lawrence Canon Sunday and praised Canada's decision to boycott the conference against racism to be held in Switzerland where harsh statements against Israel are expected to be voiced.


The prime minister also spoke about the Gaza donations conference that will kick off Monday in Egypt, saying, "Israel supports foreign aid to the Strip, but it is important to build mechanisms and oversight methods to ensure that the aid reaches Gazan civilians and will not be used to strengthen Hamas."
