Harper forces change of resolution at
Posted by Joel Johannesen -- www.proudtobecanadian.ca
The resolution as originally written—in typical liberal-left U.N.-like anti-Israel style, called for a recognition of the suffering of those in Lebanon this past summer. Not in Israel—just Lebanon. Israel presumably deserved to suffer through the slaughter that the terrorist Hezbollah Islamo-fascist savages imposed on them by lobbing bombs into civilian populations on purpose in order to kill as many innocent Jews as possible.
“Obviously, Canada believes.....we should recognize the victims in both Lebanon and Israel,” he said. Obvious only if you’re not abjectly anti-Israel.
Not reported in the above story, the debate continued and after our Canadian Prime Minister spoke, the wording was changed such that the suffering of all the people —including even the Jews in Israel —was recognized.
And if I may tip my hat and expose my
pro-Canada bias at this point:
Yay Canada, and yay Prime Minister Harper. Go team!
