Two-thirds of Canadians Support Israeli Actions

by Mike Fegelman

IpsosreidToday’s National Post reports that almost two out of every three Canadians believe Israel’s military actions in Lebanon are either somewhat or completely justified, with Quebec being the exception:

"The survey, conducted online by Ipsos-Reid for CanWest News Service and Global National, found that 64 per cent of Canadians believed Israel’s action was either somewhat or completely justified.

Fifty-seven per cent of Quebecers believed the Israeli response was ‘not at all justified.’…

When asked which side of the conflict should make a major compromise in order to have a ceasefire, 63 per cent of Canadians said it was ‘those who kidnapped the Israeli soldiers,’ while 53 per cent of Quebecers said it was the Israeli government…

There are as many as 50,000 people of Lebanese origin in Quebec, with Montreal being the home to about a third of all Lebanese-Canadians."
