Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is no moral arbiter of anything — but he apparently thinks he is.
Trudeau has decided to tell Israel how to handle their response to the attacks waged against them by Hamas on October 7th.
“The human tragedy that is unfolding in Gaza is heart-wrenching, especially the suffering we see in and around the al-Shifa hospital,” Trudeau said.
“I have been clear that the price of justice cannot be the continued suffering of all Palestinian civilians,” he continued. “Even wars have rules. All innocent life is equal in worth, Israeli and Palestinian.”
Trudeau then urged the government of Israel “to exercise maximum restraint.”
Dave Rubin is disgusted.
“He is evil. Who the hell does he think he is that he can tell another Western democracy how they should defend their men, women, and children?” Rubin demands.
Meira Cowland notes that Israel has clearly been exercising restraint.
“The truth is, Israel could have completely blitzed and bombed all of Gaza in the first three days,” Cowland says. “This whole thing would have been over. We have the military capacity.”
“The fact that there are people in the West who still are not capable of understanding that the responsibility for every single civilian casualty in this entire war from beginning to end lies with one group, and one group only. And that is Hamas,” Cowland continues.
Cowland believes that Trudeau’s request for Israel to exercise “restraint” is “not just idiotic, it’s pathetic.”
Comedian Ami Kozak is in agreement, though he has a solution.
“I think I know how to get him on Israel’s side. All we have to do is tell him that Hamas is not vaccinated,” Kozak says.
Benjamin Netanyahu did respond to Trudeau’s statement in a tweet.
In the tweet, he said that Israel has been doing everything they can to keep civilians out of harm's way, while Hamas’ is doing the opposite.
“Israel provides civilians in Gaza humanitarian corridors and safe zones, Hamas prevents them from leaving at gunpoint,” he wrote, adding, “It is Hamas not Israel that should be held accountable for committing a double war crime - targeting civilians while hiding behind civilians. The forces of civilization must back Israel in defeating Hamas barbarism.”
