Stephen Harper: Hamas is solely responsible for Palestinian casualties

(National Post) Prime Minister Stephen Harper is reiterating his government’s hard line against Hamas, saying it is solely responsible for the death and destruction in Gaza.

Harper said that while no one likes to see the suffering and loss that is occurring in the Middle East, Hamas is to blame.

The prime minister said Hamas started the war because the terrorist organization wants to destroy the state of Israel.

Harper added that if a terrorist organization were attacking Canadians, there would be a similar response from Canada.
