Step 2: Blame the Innocent

About the Isreali shelling of UN positions in Lebanon, [Canadian Prime Minister] Harper had this to say: “We want to find out why this United Nations post was attacked and also why it remained manned during what is now, more or less, a war, during obvious danger to these individuals.”

In other words, it’s their fault for being shelled and killed. According to him, the attack was not deliberate. That’s possible; after all, the base was only well-established and well marked, far from Hizbollah positions, and the raid only lasted six hours, during which numerous appeals were made. It’s probably not Isreal’s fault either that afterward they shelled the convoy that was granted safe passage to evacuate the place.

What do you think?
