I thought Americans were the only one’s blind and foolish enough to worship at the altar of ‘Israel only-ism’ in terms of Mid East policy. Unfortunately the Canadians go there too and worship at the Bibi grove.
At the request of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper thwarted an announcement Friday by the G-8 countries that would have supported U.S. President Barack Obama’s statement that talks between the Palestinians and Israel should be based on the 1967 borders with exchanges of territory.
Canadians, I’m disappointed. Truly.
“Canada is a true friend of Israel and with a realistic and proper view of things, it understands that the 1967 borders do not conform to Israel’s security needs and with the current demographic reality.”
Indeed it is. Just like the US. The only two countries on the planet that, along with Israel, think the Palestinians are in need of a good old fashioned extermination. Meanwhile, friendship with Israel is a one way street. Israel serves its own interests only, always. Other countries can do what their ‘friend’ there wants, but their ‘friend’ there will ignore any reciprocation.
