Lebanon's prime minister criticized his Canadian counterpart's support for Israel during the conflict with Hizbullah guerillas, and stressed Canada could do a better job of supporting Lebanon. Fuad Siniora said he was particularly upset with Prime Minister Stephen Harper's declaration that Israel's bombardment of southern Lebanon was a "measured response" to the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers by Hizbullah. "They could see what a crime the Israelis have made against Lebanon and against humanity," Siniora told Radio Canada after a Monday meeting with three Canadian opposition parliamentarians touring Lebanon. "This is what you call a measured response?" Siniora said the rest of the world found the action disproportionate and he said Canada could do a better job of supporting Lebanon, both politically and in terms of humanitarian aid.
