between the parties will lead to a just and lasting peace in the Middle
East and to prosperity and democracy for all the peoples in the region.
We do not support any unilateral action that might prejudice the outcome
of a negotiated solution. Canada continues to fully support the
Quartet's Road Map for peace, and we expect both parties to comply with
their obligations as outlined in the Road Map. We welcome the
Government of Israel's announced withdrawal from Gaza and parts of the
West Bank, and hope that this positive step will lead to a resumption of
the Road Map implementation.”
Everything, including his foreign policy, is permeated by his "racial ideology." The Germans, belonging to the "superior" Aryan race, have a right to "living space" (Lebensraum) in the East, which is inhabited by the "inferior" Slavs. Throughout, he accuses Jews of being the source of all evil, equating them with Bolshevism and, at the same time, with international capitalism. Unfortunately, those people who read the book (except for his admirers) did not take it seriously but considered it the ravings of a maniac. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mein_Kampf).
Here's an excerpt of an article title: "Posted by Kenneth Levin on Apr 27th, 2011 and filed under Daily Mailer, FrontPage.
In 1938, the leaders of Britain, France and Germany met in Munich to decide the fate of Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia was not invited. The three conferees agreed to strip the targeted nation of the Sudetenland, whose population consisted largely of ethnic Germans, and transfer that territory to German control. This deprived the victim state not simply of land but of those areas – mountainous, fortifiable - necessary for Czechoslovakia to be able to defend itself.
Today, the same three nations are doing the same vis-a-vis Israel. They are discarding UN Security Council Resolution 242, passed unanimously in the wake of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war and since then the cornerstone for all Middle East negotiations. They are ignoring the language of the resolution and the explicit declarations of its authors that Israel should not be forced to return to the pre-1967 armistice lines; that those lines left defense of the country too precarious and should be replaced by “secure and recognized boundaries” to be negotiated by Israel and its neighbors.
Lets us look at the world geo-political condition of our time:
- North Korea is launching missiles,
- Iran is building nukes,
- Saudi Arabia is sponsoring hate that translates into worldwide terrorism,
- Sudan is still massacring and raping,
- Taliban invading of Pakistan, which by the way have nuclear missile
- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a "big deception" in his latest denunciations of Israel and its allies.
- The United States on the brink of bankruptcy with Government debt surged to an all-time high, topping $14 trillion, and when that happen America will be pulling its military force from around the world
“Settlement activity is a marginal issue. Hamas, a notorious terrorist organization, controls Gaza. Iran daily inches closer to a nuclear capability and hikes its support for Hamas and Hezbollah. The Palestinian Authority is complicit with, and complacent about, the terrorist infrastructure in the West Bank, corruption, and vigilante justice. With these intransigent and belligerent negotiating parties, no peace agreement is at hand.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told The Washington Post that he was content to sit on his hands waiting for the United States to deliver Israel to the altar of endless concessions, adding that he will resist even asking Arab states to take baby steps toward normalizing relations with Israel, as Mr. Obama would applaud”.
"The following are excerpts from an address by Hamas leader Khaled Mash'al at the Al-Murabit Mosque in Damascus. The address was delivered following the Friday sermon at the mosque, and was aired on Al-Jazeera TV on February 3, 2006". To view this clip, visit: http://www.memritv.org/clip_transcript/en/1024.htm
"We say to this West, which does not act reasonably, and does not learn its lessons: By Allah, you will be defeated. You will be defeated in Palestine, and your defeat there has already begun. True, it is Israel that is being defeated there, but when Israel is defeated, its path is defeated, those who call to support it are defeated, and the cowards who hide behind it and support it are defeated. Israel will be defeated, and so will whoever supported or supports it"
An article entitled “Canada - Israel's best, least known, friend” in the Jpost.com complemented Canada support. Jpost.com response to Steven Harper testimony as such:
“As I said on the 60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, Israel appeared as a light in a world emerging from deep darkness. Against all odds, that light has not been extinguished. It burns bright, upheld by the universal principles of all civilized nations – freedom, democracy and justice,” said Harper, promising to continue defending Israel and combat anti-Semitism in the international arena, despite any difficulties it might cause Canada".
"These difficulties are not hypothetical. Several weeks before making the statement, Canada lost out on a seat on the UN Security Council, largely due to the bloc voting of the 57-country Organization of the Islamic Conference, which voted in favor of Portugal because of Harper’s record of supporting Israel. Harper even suffered harsh criticism from his opposition for coming to Israel’s defense during the Second Lebanon War”.
Israel is aware of the sacrifices and has been forthcoming in expressing its appreciation.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has described Canada as one of Israel’s closest allies and expressed pride in the ever-strengthening relationship.
“Canada has clearly shown that it is a real friend to Israel and the Jewish people. It has stood up for Israel even when it wasn’t necessarily to its benefit, and that is greatly appreciated,” said foreign press spokesman Mark Regev. “The prime minister considers Mr. Harper a personal friend, and everyone has noticed his international leadership in standing up for Israel and for what is right”.http://www.jpost.com/Magazine/Features/Article.aspx?id=202533
Israel is at war. Israel is being set-up. Israel needs an allied as a friend. Let it be Canadians
