Speaking to Evan Solomon of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Tibi claimed Harper had described Israel in “a very unbalanced way.”

He also claimed that Israel is a “selective democracy” and that Arabs are “suffering discrimination.”

Canada’s foreign policy toward Israel is “biased, non-balanced, and that’s why Canada has a very marginal role in the Middle East,” Tibi charged.

He left the plenum “to say that we are very much unsatisfied with the remarks and the policy of Prime Minister Harper. It is very diplomatic. It’s a protest which is legitimate in any parliament.”

Tibi shouted down the Canadian Prime Minister as he expressed his affection for Israel and the Jewish people, shouting that Israel was an “apartheid state” before storming out. …

When you cause a crazy islamist to have a melt-down, you’re on the right track.

Keep up the good work.

How are the Arabs suffering discrimination compare to Christians suffering discrimination as evidenced by burned churches and murder? How many burned mosques, zero or a small number compared to hundreds if not thousands of churches and people?

How well do Jews fare in Muslim countries? Are there any Jews alive in Muslim countries to be counted?

Just what are you talking about, Tibi?

“Tibi claimed Harper had described Israel in ‘a very unbalanced way (and that’s my job, dammit).’”

Fixed.
