Anti-Israel or Anti-Likud?

Harper is suggesting that Canada's "support Israel at all costs policy" was one of the factors which helped us lose the UN Security council seat. He says that he won't tolerate any anti-Israel talk. The way he says it is fine. The way Harper acts on these principles is completely different. If anyone dares criticize the way the right-wing Likud party rules the country, Harper immediately calls them anti-Israel. Harper says that Israel can be subjected to fair criticism, but he doesn't act like it. The truth is that Israel is run by a government. One that many people, including Israelis do not like. The latter statement is especially true because the Likud party didn't get a plurality last election; they just won in what harper would consider an illegal coalition. I would like to see how Harper would stand by Israel on everything they do if there was a socialist government in power.
OTTAWA—Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he has the bruises to prove Canada’s unwavering support for Israel in the face of growing ant-Israeli sentiment may have cost Canada a seat on the UN Security Council.
“Whether it is at the United Nation or any other international forum, the easy thing to do is simply to just get along and go along with this anti-Israeli rhetoric,” Harper told an interparliamentary conference on combating anti-Semitism.

  2. The left remain silent at the suffering in the name of Socialism.

    Simple math formula emigration is a hint. Those "bad" countries don't have people trying to enter those countries, but they have large numbers trying to leave.
