Trudeau calling for humanitarian pause in Middle East during war

By News Nov 8, 2023 | 1:50 PM

The Prime Minister is calling for a humanitarian pause in the Middle East one month after the war between Israel and Hamas began.

Justin Trudeau said the rise in antisemitism in Canada amid the conflict, is terrifying.

“Molotov cocktails thrown at synagogues…horrific threats of violence targeting Jewish businesses, targeting Jewish daycares with hate…this needs to stop. This is not who we are as Canadians,” Trudeau told reporters Wednesday. “And period, the rise of Islamophobia we’re seeing across this country and around the world, is also unacceptable. The expressions of hate against Muslims, against Palestinians, against anyone waving a Palestinian flag. This is unacceptable.”

Trudeau said Canadians are hurting and the pause would allow all hostages to be released and continue to get all foreign nationals out of Gaza.

It would also allow for aid, resources and medication to get into the area while they try to de-escalate the situation.

Trudeau added that Canadians need to model how to get through this.

Hamas invaded Israel October 7.
