The Difference Between the U. S. and Canada on Israel

I know this is not new and has been posted about by other bloggers, most recently where I saw it on Haveil Havalim #291.  I wasn't going to jump on the bandwagon because I thought it was thoroughly in the news, but I just saw this particular article on the subject, sent to me by my friend M in London, and decided to post it in case any of my readers had not heard.

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.
