After criticizing Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper last week for Canada's lack of aid to Gaza, Bryan Adams reaffirmed his stance on the situation last night via Twitter.

After posting the original tweet Aug. 11, Adams replied again to a follower on Aug. 14 who asked which side of the argument he was taking. Here was his reply:

Vogel then referred to death of three Israeli Jewish teenagers who were killed earlier this year which Adams replied to:

Adam's Twitter conversation marks a time of renewed violence in the region after a six-day ceasefire agreement.
