Premier Christy Clark is choosing sides in the latest bloodshed in the Gaza Strip.
Clark says as the world watches in agony, we recognize the need for a ceasefire.
She goes on to say “Israel has the right to defend itself and its citizens against terrorist attacks.”
The Premier says we need to remember the values we share with Israel: a vibrant, culturally rich democratic nation committed to maintaining the rights of its citizens, regardless of gender or religion.
Her statement is posted online at the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs website.
