Today Mr. Rae shows why he is the true, legitimate, elderstatesman of the Liberal Party of Canada. NDP MP Paul Dewar also makes sense on his stance on Israel. Bob thinks Canada should be part of the group looking for a quick ceasefire. Dewar agrees that foreign media should be allowed into Gaza immediately. Why didn't I think of that? Oh. I did. Perhaps Bob Rae has his head in his ass too? I'll have to ask the war room strategist.
While I agree with the statement of the Leader of the Liberal Party about the situation in the Gaza, I feel our party should have mentioned the extreme concern over the loss of civilian death, in particular the children of Palestine. I feel we as Liberals should call for an immediate ceasefire which is needed to allow for the delivery of much needed civilian and medical supplies. I also feel a need for a call for the ban on foreign journalists entering Gaza to be lifted immediately as per the Supreme Court of Israel's own decision.

I'm looking forward to the new statement by the leader of the Liberal Party of Canada supporting an immediate ceasefire and expressing a "deepening concern for the loss of civilian life".
