Well of course.

Breitbart headlines this amidst the war in Israel: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/10/18/trudeau-amongst-first-in-rush-to-blame-israel-for-gaza-hospital-blast/

Trudeau Amongst First in Rush to Blame Israel for Gaza Hospital Blast 

The story reports:

“Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was amongst the first to rush to blame Israel for a deadly explosion at the Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza City on Tuesday.

In the hours afterwards Trudeau reportedly called the situation “absolutely unacceptable.” Speaking in French, he told reporters that “it’s not legal” to bomb a hospital. 

‘The news coming out of Gaza is horrific,’ the prime minister said, Reuters reports.

‘International humanitarian and international law needs to be respected in this and in all cases. There are rules around wars and it’s not acceptable to hit a hospital.’

…Health authorities in the Hamas-run enclave claimed hundreds of people died in the explosion, which they also blamed on Israel.

As Breitbart News reported, the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror organization was responsible for the catastrophe, due to a misfired rocket intended to kill Israeli civilians, according to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

The IDF have since released audio they say shows the terrorists reacting once they realise their mistake.”

In other words? Oops!

What is telling here is the Canadian Prime Minister – a liberal – instantly believed it was Israel that did this. Which is to say: He jumped to “blame the Jews.” When, provably, there was not a word of truth to this.

Shameful – but telling.
