Let’s be clear. Israel has no better friend in the Western world today than Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. No one. Harper has been there for Israel every day. He has blocked Obama from using the G9 as a platform for pressuring Israel. He has championed Israel on every possible stage even in the face of massive pressure from Obama to keep quiet. He has protected Israel at the UN. And he has stood up to anti-Jewish bigots at home in Canada even at the cost of political support.
Canadian Jews need to recognize the friend we have in Harper. I’m certain that the other candidates have good things to say for themselves. But that is not the point.
Whatever the other candidates’ strong points, there is no way that either of them will be as effective in protecting Israel from the international lynch mob as Harper has been.
How do I know this?
Because NO ONE has been as brave, forthright and steadfast in defending Israel as Harper. If Harper fails to secure reelection, Israel and the Jewish people worldwide will lose a great friend.
