Canadian MP Sana Hassainia quits NDP over Thomas Mulcair's stance on Israel | PakistanTribe.comONTARIO – Canadian Member of Parliament (MP) Sana Hassainia quits National Democratic Party (NDP) over Thomas Mulcair’s stance on Israel.According to the reports, a New Democrat MP has quit the party over what she deems leader Tom Mulcair’s excessively pro-Israel stance on the current conflict in Gaza.

Sana Hassainia, who represents the Montreal-area riding of Vercheres-Les Patriotes, has told Montreal’s La Presse she can’t accept Mulcair’s position and will now sit as an independent.

Mulcair has walked a fine line on the conflict in Gaza, supporting Israel’s right to defend itself against Hamas missile attacks while simultaneously pushing the federal government to help Palestinian children injured by Israeli missiles.
