Gerald Steinberg accuses Canada of cynicism for renewing
its diplomatic relations with Libya. He accuses Libya of working to develop
nuclear and chemical and biological wepons. He accuses Libya of terrorism and
bombing the Pan American flight over Lockerbie.
This is the height of irony coming from an Israeli dealing
with conflict management. Unlike Libya, Israel has already
manufacured hundreds of nuclear weapons and developed and
used chemical weapons. Does he rember Israeli
use of its chemical weapons against Khalid Meshal in Amman in 1997? Is he aware
of Israeli scientists working to develop an ethnic biological bomb to
kill Arabs and spare Jews? Does he remember Israel shooting down, in
Feb. 1973, a Libyan civilian airliner killing 110 passengers, including its
entire French crew?
I think it behoves those who preach on high principles to
apply them to their own countries and not be so selective.
