MUST SEE VIDEO: Canadian PM Stephen Harper: I Will Defend Israel 'whatever the cost'



Why don't we have leadership like this in the United States of America? Why does Obama seem to defend Hamas, while he pressures Israel on "settlements" (ie. Jewish homes). It's beyond us, but this is how every Western leader should stand when it comes to Israel and the Jewish people. History has proven---without a doubt---that those who stand with us, are blessed, and those who stand against us, are cursed:

 
*ACTION:  Please take a moment to thank Prime Minister Stephen Harper 
via email or fax 613-941-6900 for his strong support of Israel and the Jewish people

Ottawa, Canada - Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he is prepared to suffer any political backlash that comes his way for speaking out against anti-Israel rhetoric.

Harper told an audience Monday that while Israel is receptive to fair criticism, Canada is obligated to stand up for its ally when it comes under attack from others.

"Not just because it is the right thing to do, but because history shows us, and the ideology of the anti-Israel mob tell us all too well, that those who threaten the existence of the Jewish people are in the longer term a threat to all of us."

The prime minister acknowledged that his position is not popular with all governments and organizations, including members of the United Nations and the Francophonie.

"And I know, by the way, because I have the bruises to show for it, that whether it is at the United Nations or any other international forum, the easiest thing to do is simply to just get along and go along with this anti-Israel rhetoric, to pretend it is just about being even-handed, and to excuse oneself with the label of honest broker.

"There are, after all, a lot more votes—a lot more—in being anti-Israeli than in taking a stand. But as long as I am prime minister, whether it is at the United Nations, the Francophonie or anywhere else, Canada will take that stand, whatever the cost."

Harper made his remarks at the start of a two-day conference on anti-Semitism that is being held on Parliament Hill during Holocaust Education Week.
