Good Grief!! I say, shaking my head and rolling my eyes...
Can this get any more absurd? Are we all really living in Canad-oi??
You can read more about it here and here, and here. Be prepared with your vomit baggie nearby - you'll need it.
What the heck is this really? So, now both parties are going to be right out there with vying for the love of Israel? Well, at least it is finally - clearly out in the open.
Far from being 'anti-semites' as the Tories exclaim of the Liberals, let me remind everyone of this tasty little gem:
Israel supporters in cabinet
Jewish state has friends in the new Martin government, says Owen.
This piece from 2004 introduces us to the 'Liberal Parliamentarians for Israel'. Don't worry if you've never heard of them, they were after all just beginning the outing process which had been in the works for a few years at least. Perhaps this crew and their minions still living in the closet are to blame for these sorts of sentiments:
PM Paul Martin is NO friend of Israel
I guess they had to finally give in and adopt the now Israelcentric talking points vis a vis Lurch:
"Canada has to support the right of a democratic country to defend itself," he told reporters in Halifax yesterday after speaking to a forum of business leaders on the economy.
"Israel has been attacked from Gaza, not just last year, but for almost 10 years," Ignatieff said.
"They evacuated from Gaza so there is no occupation in Gaza."
Nice Iggy, so it justifies it all eh? Well I think we all know that he is a very pro-Israel warhappy academic and was placed into the leadership of the Liberal party to ensure they never get voted into power. He's a mule.
So, let us all just face it - the leaders of our political parties are more concerned with the pro-Israel Jewish vote than they are about the rest of 98% of Canada. Here in this utter fiasco, which really is funny when you think about it - but in a sad way - we have absolute solid proof.
