“Canada and Israel are the greatest of friends, and the most natural of allies” our Prime Minister states in the Knesset. “The friendship between us is rooted in history, and nourished by shared values. It is right to support Israel because, after generations of persecution, the Jewish people deserve their own homeland and deserve to live safely and peacefully in that homeland. It is a Canadian tradition to stand for what is principled and just, regardless of whether it is convenient or popular. Canada’s support for Israel means at least three things:
- First, Canada finds it deplorable that some in the international community still question the legitimacy of the existence of the state of Israel.
- Second, Canada believes that Israel should be able to exercise its full rights as a UN member-state and to enjoy the full measure of its sovereignty.
- Third, we refuse to single out Israel for criticism on the international stage…in the world of diplomacy, with one solitary Jewish state and scores of others, it is all too easy to go along to get along and single out Israel. But such is not a balanced approach, nor a sophisticated one; it is quite simply weak and wrong.We deplore the new anti-Semitism masquerading as anti-Israelism, it attempts to make the old bigotry acceptable for a new generation.”
- We need to spend time in prayer for Stephen Harper as we come close too! a election I believe in my heart we need a man with back bone to lead Canada and Stephen Harper is our man. I am very proud in the way he spoke up on Jan 9/2015 and it what is was. Attack on our freedom
Hello there Rev. James June 26 2015 the Canadian government is on their spring break. It won’t be back until September. In October there will be an election to elect a new Canadian government for the next four years. We need to keep our politicians in prayer. The doubters,( the media, and all politicians should speak honestly with our Canadian population as to what they are going to in next four years. I believe in my heart, that we should pray for Stephen Harper and his PCs because I believe at this time Stephen Harper and the PCs are the government we need at this time. So we as Canadians need to think very deeply and wisely when it comes to what the result should in the next election in October.
