Ottawa, Canada – Yesterday’s assassination of Lebanese Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel is another example of foreign state terror being used to destabilize Lebanon. Canada must not stand by and allow these vicious criminal actions to succeed.
“Prime Minister Harper understands the importance of democracy to the people of Lebanon,” said Francois Hachem, director of the Canadian Coalition for Democracies (CCD). “Today, we are calling on the Prime Minister to take strong action against Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists within Lebanon as well as their sponsors in Syria and Iran. We must defeat those who use violence and murder, especially against the Christian minority, with the goal of making Lebanon yet another stage for global Islamist terror that threatens all nations including Canada.”
