Now the Canadian military, and the Harper government, are trying to cover-up how he died.
The Defence Department has quietly removed from the Internet a report into the killing of a Canadian military officer by Israeli forces, a move the soldier’s widow says is linked to the Conservative government’s reluctance to criticize Israel for any wrongdoing.
Trying to bury the memory of what happened to him. Even though the facts are clear:
Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener and three other United Nations observers were killed in 2006 when the Israeli military targeted their small outpost with repeated artillery barrages as well as an attack by a fighter aircraft.
Nobody can deny it was cold blooded murder:
The Israeli attack on the UN outpost began shortly after noon on July 25, 2006, prompting the UN deputy secretary general to almost immediately call the Israeli ambassador to the UN and complain.
At one point, a general in charge of UN operations in Lebanon called the Israeli liaison officer and told him, “You’re killing my people.” Previously, the Israelis halted such attacks when protests were received. Later that day, an Israeli fighter pilot directed a precision-guided bomb through the door of the UN bunker. The blast from the massive bomb killed the four men.
And Stephen Harper's grotesque Con government is just trying to rewrite history again, because it can't do enough to please Benjamin Netanyahu's settler regime.
Even if that means sacrificing a Canadian hero, by trying to erase what happened to him from the record.
DND could not comment on claims by defence sources that hard copies of the board of inquiry report were also removed from military libraries.
But it won't work. Like many Canadians I will never forget our peacekeepers who honoured our country in the eyes of the world. Instead of disgracing it like the Harper Cons.
For us Maj. Paeta Hess-von Kruedener will always be a hero.
Those who killed him in cold blood, and got away with it, will live in infamy forever. And this too is true.
By trying to extinguish the memory of a fallen Canadian soldier, to please the treasonous wishes of their political masters, the Department of National Defence has dishonoured itself unforgivably, and for all time.
And until the day the Con regime is defeated, we will live in the sinister darkness of the Big Lie. History, like the truth, will be what they say it is.
Or Big Brother says it is:
For as Orwell himself warned:
"The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history"
And that's exactly what the Orwellian Cons are doing. Betraying the memory of a Canadian hero to suck up to a foreign government.Trying to rewrite history by covering up his murder. Telling us the War of 1812 is important, while turning our military leaders into Con stooges, and trouser trumpeters for Israel.
Can you believe that eh? Have they no shame? Do Canadians have any pride left?
In the name of our sacred fallen, when can we get rid of those scummy traitors?
When is enough ENOUGH?
