They’re lying when they say they weren’t invited. Dignitaries from nations all over the world attended the ceremonies. Why wouldn’t the Canadians have been invited? Trudeau is just a limp and weak Obama imitator who is holding out for Obama-era appeasement policies during the Trump era, and then is so lily-livered that he is trying to pretend that he isn’t doing so.
Note also the vicious bias of the Canadian Press story, giving the impression that Israeli forces killed “Palestinians” gratuitously and in cold blood, and not mentioning a thing about how those “Palestinians” were throwing Molotov cocktails and grenades and more. Par for the enemedia course.
“Palestinians thank Canada for not supporting U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem,” by Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Press, May 15, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
OTTAWA — Palestinian diplomats say they welcome the Trudeau government’s decision not to attend the controversial opening of the new American embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.
But a spokesman for Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada wasn’t invited.
Canada, along with its major allies, does not support the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem, saying that’s a decision for a future peace agreement between the Palestinians and Israelis.
Monday’s inauguration of the new U.S. embassy sparked the bloodiest day in four years at the Israel-Gaza border as Israeli forces killed more than 50 Palestinians.
The carnage unfolded several dozen kilometres away from where the Trump administration was following through on its decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
Israel blames Hamas for inciting the violence, a position that its ambassador to Canada reiterated in a statement released in Ottawa.
Ambassador Nimrod Barkan said Hamas is a terrorist organization that is trying to “hijack the future of the Palestinian people for its own nefarious ambitions.”
But the Palestinian delegation in Ottawa called the U.S. embassy move “unilateral and illegal” and Israel’s military response to the protests an “immoral act” that relied on “excessive force.”
“Those shocking and bloody images can’t leave us without welcoming the decision of the government of Canada and other governments who didn’t participate in the so-called inauguration ceremony of the U.S. on Palestinian land,” said the statement from the Ottawa delegation.
But the spokesman for Freeland said Canada wasn’t on the guest list for the Jerusalem event.
“It was a bilateral event between the U.S. and Israel and we were not invited,” spokesman Adam Austen said in an email….
