The Difference Between the U. S. and Canada on Israel
Heard of what? That the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, has more gumption and guts than the so-called president of the once-greatest free country in the world. Mr. Harper is turning out to be "Israel's greatest friend in the world."
Here is a man who is not afraid of political correctness, and who has already in the past weathered negative reactions to his outspoken support of Israel. I can't help contrasting this with Mr. Obama's wishy-washiness at best and condemnation of Israel at worst, most recently while he was visiting a certain Muslim country which was itself guilty of terrorism against its own non-Muslims.
Mr. Harper's statements were delivered at an interparliamentary conference on combating antisemitism given in Ottawa. His statements, unpopular with the Muslim world and even with many non-Muslims, show courage and strength of character. Here is the video of that incredibly wonderful speech.
