Mr. Speaker, with Hamas promising an earthquake and Israel's reactions, violence in the Middle East continues.
The road map presented by the Unites States is being severely tested and the countries of the world must now join together to reinforce this strategy before it is destroyed by extremists who just do not want peace no matter what.
Part of the road map calls for monitors and the U.S. and Europeans have already committed. Yesterday senior Palestinians called on Canada to join in providing monitors to ensure that the road map has the best possible chance to succeed.
Now is the chance for Canada to re-establish ourselves at the very least as a junior partner in an attempt to find peace in the Middle East.
I support the call for Canada to supply monitors, and I urge the government to move quickly and announce the participation of Canadians in this role.
