Hezbollah, not a terrorist organization, says Canada


http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | Oh Canada, our longtime ally neighbor to the north, with whom we share a 5500-mile long border, doesn't seem to recognize a terrorist even when the group calls for international suicide bombings.

Canada has so far refused to add the Islamic radical group Hezbollah to its short list of terrorist organizations. That means Hezbollah can raise funds and recruit members there.

The government of Prime Minister Jean Chretien apparently believing that Hezbollah-operated schools and health clinics in southern Lebanon are enough to view them as a legitimate social organization.

That is a group whose leader just this week told a crowd of gun-toting followers: "Take suicide bombings worldwide. Don't be shy about it."

A group responsible for killing 241 American Marines in a 1983 truck bomb attack in Beirut, a group who before 9/11 had more American blood on their hands than any other terrorist organization. A group that has called for "death to America" and has long been on the U.S. list of terror organizations.

Our border is two porous for Americans not to demand that Canada get serious about this war on terror.
