New Defence Attache Eager to Build Bridges
"Another layer has been added to the ever-deepening bilateral relationship between Canada and Israel. Last December, Israel quietly named Brig-Gen (Res) Eden Attias as its first Ministry of Defence attache to Ottawa. Prior to that, Israel's only defence attache in North America was stationed in Washington DC.
Given the deepening ties and friendship between Canada and Israel, the moment was right for his new post to be created, Attias said. 'Due to the flourishing relationship between Canada and Israel, one of the recent discussions between our defence ministries involved looking for ways to get more people on the ground in each country.
'We have a lot of things we're sharing,' he said. Attias said he's paving the way for his successors and hopes to open many doors for Israel with Canada's miltary industries and to connect Canadian firms to opportunities in Israel.
From a community standpoint, he said as an Israeli Jew, he's slowly learning just how much the Canadian Jewish community supports Israel."
(yeah me too.)
'Cast-Lead 'Dirty 200 List': Colonel Eden Atias ID: 22665954, Commander Nevatin Air Force Base; War Criminal No. #45'
"The people listed here held positions of command at the time of the Gaza attack. Therefore not only did they perform on behalf of a murderous state mechanism but actively encouraged other people to do the same.
The bear a distinctive personal responsibilty. All took and active role in the offensive...'
With every new revelation like the Dirty 200 list, the moral noose is tightened that much more around those who engaged in misdeeds during Cast Lead. The shroud of impunity is lifting ever so gradually. The notion of accountability is affirmed in an ever-stronger fashion.
This is a battle of inches on behalf of international law and Israeli responsibility. Gradually and eventually every Israeli soldier will realize the price they are paying for their nation's futile, failed, folly in pursuing all out war against Palestinian civilians in Gaza during Cast Lead and the inevitable next war was well..."
