Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper continues to pick up the slack left by an absent American president who has abandoned freedom across the world.
Nothing makes Obama look so small as a real leader.
"[W]hen Israel, the only country in the world whose very existence is under attack, is consistently and conspicuously singled out for condemnation, I believe we are morally obligated to take a stand," Harper said last year.
The Canadian prime minister further affirmed that "as long as I am prime minister Canada will take not that stand, whatever the cost."
"Canadian PM Personally Intervened to Stop PA Statehood Bid at UN" INN , November 27, 2012
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper personally intervened to pressure PA Chairman Abbas to drop his bid for upgraded status at the UN.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper personally intervened to pressure Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to drop his bid for upgraded status at the United Nations.
Harper, who had been in New York to accept an award and attend the opening of a new session of the United Nations at the end of September, had "a short, brusque meeting with [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas," the Globe and Mail newspaper reported.
"In a little room at the United Nations, Mr. Harper skipped most of the pleasantries in a 15-minute meeting, according to sources briefed on the session, and told Mr. Abbas he had come to deliver a message: If you keep doing what you're doing, he said - referring to the Palestinian bid for upgraded status - 'there will be consequences,'" the newspaper reported.
"It was just one part of the bare-knuckle approach Canada has taken toward the U.N. bid, though largely out of public view," according to the newspaper.

I'd move up there in a minute......if their taxes weren't so high, and their medical system wasn't so lousy, and the weather, well, yeah, the weather. Ok, so maybe I'll put it on the back burner. Gotta admire them, though.
“Hey, Canada, when you’re done with this guy, can we borrow him for, oh, say about 8 years? Don’t worry about the citizenship issue — that’s no obstacle here anymore.”
(A comment from the articles site.)
Obama and Harper do not get along. Obama is an enemy of Canada, he has made that quite clear to Conservative Canadians. The loony lefties up here love him of course, but they are becoming more and more irrelevant in Canadian society.
the “Palestinians” have conclusively proved that they’re basically uncivilizable semi-savages. They should all be forcably evacuated to the various to the surrounding Islamic states and a large buffer zone created between Israel and the rest of the useless Islamic countries. They can take the Lebanese Muslims with them.
With all that said, I congratulate Harper; although, I do ask the question, what would be the consequence of officially recognizing the PA. It is already functionally its own entity.
