Israel and Canada
With Barack Obama and his leftist crew installed in the U.S. government, America is no longer Israel’s closest ally in the world. Canada—under the leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper—is. Columnist Jeffrey Simpson in The Globe and Mail is not happy about that fact.
Whether Liberal or Conservative, [previous] Canadian governments strongly supported both Israel and peaceful Palestinian aspirations. Canada had marginal influence in the region but, nonetheless, urged both sides to talk and, on occasion, was willing to criticize actions on both sides deleterious to peace.
