CANADIAN CALL TO ACTION: STAND UP AGAINST TERROR

From B'nai Brith Canada:

As the war against Israel continues to escalate, we in Canada can play an important part by standing up for accountability in our media.

Terrorism is a threat to democracy. The terrorist organization Hamas may have been elected in Gaza but that does not change the fact that it is a terrorist group.

Here are the facts:
1. Hamas was designated as a banned terrorist entity under Canadian law in 2002 by the Liberal Government

2. Hamas seeks the destruction of Israel, not peace. The Hamas Covenant states, "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.'

There can be no equivalency drawn between Israel's right to defend its citizens on one hand and attacks carried out by terrorists on the other.

Demand that Canadian media outlets (television, radio, print and online) call it as it is -- Hamas is not a Militant group, it is a banned Terrorist group.
