How pro-Israel is Stephen Harper’s government?
It is so pro-Israel that Canada will vote no in the United Nations to recognize a Palestinian state on only half the land that Canadian diplomats promised Palestine 60 years ago.
It is so pro-Israel that it will support illegal settlers and the extreme right in blocking this small step towards righting a historical wrong despite Canada spending tens of millions of dollars on training Palestinian police and other “state-building” measures.
It is so pro-Israel that it will do this despite a higher percentage of Canadians supporting the Palestinian’s bid for UN membership than voted Conservative in the last election.
Two and a half months ago Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird criticized the Palestinian statehood bid, labeling it a “public-relations” exercise. On Friday Harper reiterated this position. “Canada views the action as very regrettable and we will be opposing it,” the Prime Minister said.
Canada is one of only a half dozen countries that has publicly come out against the Palestinian Authority’s UN bid
"How pro-Israel is Stephen Harper’s government?"
I hope it is a rhetorical question! :)
Sir, you are a GENIUS!
Calling a thief a thief, a murderer a murderer, a traitor a traitor, an occupier an occupier is I think what the "holy scriptures" command us (and any "scripture" that says kill innocents, steal their land is anything but "Holy". Of course no scripture would say that but then you will not understand having lived in total darkness. (Calling a killer is killer is NOT being anti-human; speaking ill of Monsanto is not being "anti-food"; Calling Obama a bloody LIAR and a war-monger is not "racism!" Duh!
