Posted on 07/14/2014 7:33:14 PM PDT by Hoodat
In a stunning rebuke of President Obamas tepid calls for Israel to show "restraint" in response to daily rocket fire on Israeli civilian targets by Hamas terror redoubts in Gaza, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, long considered Israels best friend and strongest defender, all but condemned President Obama by name for what he regards as Washingtons irresolute support for Israel during its time of grave crisis.
In perhaps his most strongly worded statement to date, Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is "not merely an Israeli right" to be exercised only in the abstract, but an "Israeli obligation" that must be defended by all Western nations.
Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions will encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions, Harper said in a rare Sunday statement. Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts [by Hamas] are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict."
Forget about the U.S.-Israel relationship being the bulwark of Israeli security, say some. Israels best friend and staunchest defender is no longer found in Washington, but rather in Ottawa.
Ending the war does not require Israeli "restraint," implies Harper. It demands the world declare that sole responsibility for the terror of violence belongs with the terrorists. It is Hamas, claims Harper, that is entirely responsible for the current Israel-Hamas war. It is evident, Harper asserts, that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region, and he takes several swipes at the United Nations and the international community for calling for Israeli restraint in the face of escalating rocket fire aimed at murdering and maiming Israeli civilians. . .

Ineligible and you can’t have him.
Ubama set the precedent that you don’t have to be a US citizen to be a US President, so...
The pRes_ _ent is an Indonesian who rejected America
and was put in place by Pelosi’s perjury and
the abidication of the corrupt, EXEMPT, Congress.
Stephen Harper, I hope your IRS tax returns are in order. Oh, wait....
he’s right, and he’s no less ineligible than Guess Who
Way at go, eh?
I wonder if he has any American Relatives..with the proper qualifications??
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Thank you Canada! Somebody had to show the Kenyan what having a set of ‘nads is like. Girlymen suck at being POTUS.
Abundantly clear is the Obamao habit of voting “present” has carried over nicely to the Republicrat congress who do the same, with an occasional flurry of activity resulting always in “nothing to see here”.
Careful, Mr. Harper or our Attorney Corporal, Eric Holder, will investigate you as soon as he's done investigating that racist outhouse float.
Yeah, I think The Guess Who are Canadian too. I didn’t know they did politics also.
I understand that half of the population lives within 50 miles of the Canada-US border. We seem to be almost the same group of people as they are--DELIGHTFUL folks. Of course, I was with the tourist folks and they WOULD be nice to us.
OUR fool on the hill has NO redeeming values. How long til he's out? Two more years? Tsk. He's a buffoon.
Man, you gotta know that when you’re getting dissed by Canada, you pretty much suck.
Way to go Barry!
Canada, a safe haven from obama?
Netanyahu vs O'bummer
Hang your head, America
Some good news here ... with Egypt and Israel working together ...
Egyptian ceasefire proposal leaves Hamas cornered
Either the Islamists accept near-humiliating terms, or they risk isolation and a stepped-up Israeli military assault
[O]ne thing is certain: This is the darkest hour for the Hamas leadership in Gaza and abroad
If they accept the Egyptian proposal, they will be perceived as having been heavily defeated in the latest round of conflict with Israel; a defeat that is close to a humiliation.
Thats because the conditions in the Egyptian proposal do not include any of the demands that Hamas has been repeating day and night in the last few days. As reported in the Egyptian media, there is no mention in the proposal of Hamass oft-repeated demand for the release of the dozens of its operatives, freed in the 2011 Shalit deal, who were rearrested in recent weeks by Israeli forces in the West Bank in the wake of the murders of the three Israeli teenagers. There is also no concrete commitment regarding the opening of the Rafah border crossing or the payments of the salaries of Hamass 40,000 clerks in Gaza. And there is no mention whatsoever of the situation in the West Bank. All these demands were raised by the Hamas military wing two days after Israel began Operation Protective Edge, and repeated interminably ever since.
Yes, there is some language providing for the opening of the border crossings, and an easing of movement of people and goods via those crossings as permitted by the security situation. But that language is almost a direct repetition of the November 2012 ceasefire terms that brought Operation Pillar of Defense to a close. Time and again, Hamass leaders have been stressing in recent days that there will be no return to the 2012 ceasefire terms.
I was a TAD edgy in those days. My father wouldn't allow me to be very "edgy" at all. He was no fun and SUCH a despot. I miss him still.
And some people here decry Ted Cruz’s eligibility to run for president. Unbelievable!
“Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is “not merely an Israeli right””
OK, so there are no other candidates for Leader of the Free World.
Harper is the only one champing freedom.
Canada and Australia are starting to wake up. Good for them. America? We’re in the twilights last gleaming.
Two great men!
Me too...he is great.
Good for him! Sadly no one in any sort of power in this country has the cojones to stand up to zero and tell him he’s wrong.
Hey, Harper, please don’t lump the US citizens in with hussein.
6+ years into Obama’s presidency a turd would be an improvement.
The Wildrose Party hoped to win the last election but came short when the race card was played against it....for now the “Progressive Conservative Party” continues to mess things up in Alberta.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Good for him. Canada's President doesn't lead from behind.
soetoro - “Fire,’em up, hamas!” - is an enemy islamist who thinks the current state of affairs is proceeding according to plan.
Stephen Harper is the leader of the Free World.
At first I thought you were kidding... then I thought about it. You're right dfwgator... Stephen Harper IS the leader of the Free World... there isn't anyone else who can wear that mantle... Strange.
I think the problem may be the pRes_ _ent’s warning, “Comply or die with your entire family and all your friends.”
I can’t think of any other reason why the Conservative patriots in power in Washington are
doing absolutely nothing to stop the destruction and dismantling of our country and all we
hold near and dear. What else could it be? It’s the Chicago-gangster way writ large.

Could be... Either way, they’re cowards.
I’m glad that they weren’t here during the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence.
They wouldn’t have the courage or patriotism to risk “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred
honor.” Well, having no sacred honor, they toss that right out the window anyway.
And the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World?” Never would have happened, and we’d be a British
colony today, assuming we don’t become a Muslime caliphate. Oh, did I misspell “Mudslime?”
Best PM in my lifetime (and that’s fairly long). I love the guy. My long time tag line says it all.
The population of Canada is situated where the arable land is and where navigable rivers are. For the most part, Canada was settled before people moved en mass to the cities and society everywhere was primarily agrarian - farmer folk.
The arable land is along the southern border. Further north is solid bedrock with a thin layer of soil on top where our boreal forest grows. In this region forestry and mining is are major economic activities, but agriculture is impossible. There are small single industry towns and cities in that area, but not great metropolises. Population is very sparse with long empty spaces in between.
Further north of that is tundra and permafrost where it`s too damned cold for anything to grow.
Further north still is polar ice caps, also not conducive to large populations. About the only thing it`s good for is polar vortexes. ;-p
The polar vortexes come after you. You can’t stay away from them.
Oh dear. We did have snow here once. It was a dusting of the white stuff and stayed on the ground for 15 whole minutes. We all took pictures of it, so rare it was.
We DO get down into the upper forties during the coldest of winters and up to the upper 60's in the heat of the summer. But this is the West Coast of this great country and that is the climate.
We had 10 million folks here when I was growing up. Then, we had 48 million at the most but are "down" to 38.04 million (2012) from Google numbers.
Still TOO MANY people here!! I always hear from the newbies how WUNNERFUL the Midwest is for rearing children but...those folks go south for the winter if they can afford it OR MOVE to the West Coast if they can't.
Lol. Life is good.
Proud of our Prime Minister Canada Ping!
