In an exclusive interview with the ‘Post,’ John Baird says Hamas, Fatah national unity government a “red line.”
“How many Islamic states are there? There’s only one Jewish state,” Baird said.
“I think events in the middle of the last century compel humanity to make sure there is a Jewish homeland, a sanctuary, and today a country with peace and security.”
Baird also warned that the Palestinian Authority would stand to lose a significant amount of aid from Canada should Fatah join Hamas in a national unity government as is currently being discussed.
“If Hamas were to come into a goverment of the Palestinian authority, that is a red line for us,” Baird said.
“We’re not going to be partnering with and funding an international terrorism group. It’s a non-starter.”
His comments come after Israel’s Ambassador the US Michael Oren told AIPAC’s opening conference panel Sunday morning urged the Palestinians not to take such a step.

There is some truth in the Canadian FM’s statement.
But: Can Canada tell the Arabs what they can not do?
Have not Canada funded the PLO for years?
Is it fair that the West fund one terror-organization, and forbid this terror-cell to unite with another?
The existence of PLO, has nothing to do with democracy. The Arabs never wanted the PLO to shift from Tunisia to Ramallah. This was a product of the cursed Oslo-accords.
Since it is US and Canadian dollars who has funded the PLO, it is not enough to threatened these two terror-organizations not to unite. You are guilty of sponsoring Islamic terrorism, and you have to remove them both.
If not, you are indulging in hypocrisy, and display a not democratic attitude. With your money you have corrupted the Arabs, and breeds more Islamic terrorism. In the end, the Hamas and Iran gets more supporters.

I agree with you Ivar.
And I say to the leadership of Canada that your friendship to Israel is good, but it is being let down by your support for their enemies. Break of that support, and you will see God’s blessing fall on your country in a way that will cause you to rise above the tsunami of trouble that is drowning others.
