A bedeviled people are at work to isolate and weaken the resolve of the deprived citizens of the Gaza. Canada Post has now suspended its service to Palestinians that live in the enclave. The Post Office of the Government of Canada said it has been informed by Israel Post that mail service to the coastal Palestinian territory is unavailable “due to circumstances beyond their control.” See communiqué here. One wonders what more injustice can be exacted by the Israeli government on the citizens of Gaza while their lackeys in Governments of the West sit in the shadows and approve. Who are the real terrorists? Are they the misguided Palestinians who loft a missile occasionally at Jews who occupy lands that are not their own? Or are the terrorists the government of Israel, and its Allies of Folly who support and sanction the isolation, starvation and killing of 1.5 human beings in the Gaza strip — those that remain to exist within one centimeter above starvation in accordance with the Red Line document?
Only 24,000 people of Palestinian decent reside inside Canada. Outside Gaza and the West Bank, a great number of Palestinians reside in Jordan, Israel, Chile, and Syria. See dispersion of the Palestinians here. So what purpose does an organ of the government of Canada serve in making this decision? Can mail from Canada not flow to the Gaza through Egypt? Does Canada Post have to wait for the de facto rulers of the Palestinians in Tel Aviv to approve the resumption of mail service to the Gaza? Is there no will within the people of Canada to tell their government we want you to do what is right and impartial? Your actions seem to suggest that the needs of Palestinians are not important to Canadians.
Those who have power should be principled in making decisions as leaders. Tomorrow their position may not be so lofty, and they may have to rely on the gratitude of others that is in reserve. Those who beat the drum of the proud and the powerful should remember that no nation or people rule forever. Just look at history. You too will be judged by how you treated others. As they say, what goes around comes around.
