Response to "Oh Canada"

Reader comment on item: My Media Year

Dear Mr. Eric
Your comment on the reported incident at Concordia is interesting. I am not sure how old you are but I assume you are an adult, at least of age! Who are the terrorists you are talking about? All the Palestinians in the world or those who attended the demonstration? Or everyone who was there in the demonstration including the Canadians? Whoever your target was, you showed great insensitivity and prejudice agains the Palestinians. Why didn't you mention the innocent Palestinians who are suffering in the occupied lands in Palestine?
Please remeber that as the Israelis have every right to exist as a sovereign nation--so are the Palestinians. Palestinians and the Israelis are brothers, the children of Abraham; they are forced to live in peace and in harmony. They do not have another option. It is my conviction that if America and the Arab world left them alone, they would have reached a lasting peace long time ago.

Mind you that I am not an Arab but an African Christian from Islamic background! I always pray for peace in the Middle East; If you care the warring brothers and sisters in the Promised Land, join me in prayer of peace and reconciliation. If you can't do that, please stop adding fuel to the fire.

Grace and peace

Brother Warsameh
