The Defence Department has quietly removed from the Internet a report into the killing of a Canadian military officer by Israeli forces, a move the soldier’s widow says is linked to the Conservative government’s reluctance to criticize Israel for any wrongdoing. Link

I second every single word you've wrote. Shame to the media though who is becoming a pawn in the hands of conservatives and especially that antipathetic Harper (which by the way have no shame at all).
U.S. Bombs Canadian troops again
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - Canadian troops narrowly missed serious injury or death when a U.S. jet dropped a 225-kilogram laser-guided bomb on their position this month in an incident frighteningly similar to the friendly fire attack that killed four Canadian soldiers in 2002.
No pain, Dude...a well-reasoned response.

Op... I hate to be the pain here but you know me. It's my specialty!
Seriously.... I looked over this and read not only your Link but additional material I could find because I hadn't recalled hearing a thing about this. It's no wonder now that I read the article and see at the bottom .... Canada didn't even inform the families of the dead before the Media did it for them. Tacky.... VERY tacky... It didn't even occur to Ottawa that perhaps.. just maybe.. Families become the 1st, if brief, priority? Oh well... I'm assuming human decency in anything serving a Government. I know.. Silly me.... lol
The problem here...and maybe you can help, OP, is a total failure to understand the outrage here......because I don't understand what happened here.
So what about these 4 men and that lonely outpost on their northern border justified risking the future of a nation to kill them?? Or was this actually a tragic tragic mistake ...or sheer criminal incompetence? Hmm..
At best, Steve is pandering to the Jewish vote. No surprise there...every party courts ethnic and religious communities. However, I suspect that the real truth is that, based on the fact that Steve is an evangelical Christian, he is following the American loony-right as a Christian Zionist. In essence, support of Israel will bring on the final conflict and the much-vaunted "Rapture".(cue angels)

It's strange - the Australian or New Zealand governments have never really cowtowed to Israel all that much, yet the British, United States and Canadian governments seem to be bent over a barrel by your Zionist allies in the Middle East.
