Ottawa won’t back Obama’s Mideast peace proposal
Globe and Mail ^ | 2011-05-20 | Daniel Leblanc

Posted on 05/20/2011 3:05:20 PM PDT by Clive

The Harper government is refusing to join the United States in calling for a return to 1967 borders as a starting point for Mideast peace, a position that has drawn sharp criticism from Canada’s staunch ally Israel.

At a briefing ahead of the upcoming G8 summit in France, federal officials said the basis for the negotiations must be mutually agreed upon.

Hatch To Introduce Resolution Opposing President Obama’s Israel Policy:

...Hatch further said that there is “strong disapproval” of Obama’s stance in Congress and that the resolution will affirm Israel’s “right to maintain its territorial integrity.” “Now, more than ever, the security interests of the United States and Israel are linked,”

The Obama MSM has dropped this story like a Hot Potato.

We won’t hear much more about this until the Sunday Morning Anchors receive their “DNC talking points”. By then, they will have figured out once again, “If you disagree with The Won, you are racist”.

We're praying for America, Markusprime.

For this Canadian at least, since Zero came along, it's been like watching a loved, respected, and adored family member (America) being thrown into some surreal “East Germany".

Ex-pat here, living in the USA. Very proud of my country Canada and PM Harper, for standing with Israel, not against it.
I am just shocked by what is going on with Obama and his minions. He is taking this great country,the United States of America, down.

Between Geithner and Obama in just the last three months, we have lost Germany, Ireland, Norway, Finnland, the UK, Israel and Canada on the misadventures of the US Executive office’s misuse and abuse of the country’s diplomatic and intelligence operations, military might and financial oligarchy’s demand for submission.

The Democrats in the Executive and State Dept have insulted Mubarak, insulted the House of Saud, insulted the Jewish Diaspora, kowtowed to Hamas, funded the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, an destroyed the IMF.

Some will try to blow smoke up the arses of the few Americans paying attention, and claim this is all part of a grand arching conspiracy, I’m now convinced that the Democrat and Democrat leaning State DEpt have simply been exposed as unable to cope with the fruition of their decades long drive to lower the international standing of the United States...

I really doubt there won’t be another wave of governments that fall this year as the unraveling of the international power structure intensifies at an exponential rate as failures begin to cascade into unintended consequences far beyond the strategies employed at Foggy Bottom.

But hell, the wold ends in 4 hours, I’m having another beer.

Yep, and of course this is on top of losing England, India, France, and Poland fairly early on. And of course poor little Honduras down there too.

I’ve read almost half of the 900+ comments at the article. I am flabbergasted by the overwhelming disgust, contempt, even hatred toward Israel that is reflected in the comments. 95% of the comments are anti-Israel. They truly believe that Israel stole “Palestine’s” land and imprisoned the Palestinian people. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am.

He has his orders from the White House. Fox is Cowed now by Media Matters and threats against the advertisers. Trust nothing on TV. The GOP is in Duck and Cover mode under their desks. Amazing to behold. I never thought it could happen here. It is going to get bumpy from here out. Every day more and more.

Amazing, isn't it? In their eyes, Obama can do no wrong.

The Harper government is refusing to join the United States in calling for a return to 1967 borders as a starting point for Mideast peace, a position that has drawn sharp criticism from Canada’s staunch ally Israel.

Continuing in the tradition of excellence that's brought us the break-America bailout, Obamacare, cash for clunkers, public revelation of the classified bunker under the Vice Presidential mansion, the shut-down Gitmo movement, the idea of trying terrorists in civil court, a ban on waterboarding and prosecution of US terrorist interrogators, talk of "man-caused disasters," condemnation of our military efforts in Iraq, random intervention in Libya, and the clear, authoritative, consistent communication following the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Thats Canadas own fault

When the country was first taken over by the English (1760s) they allowed people in Quebec to keep on speaking French eventhough the official language was now English

Too bad. This is going to be a campaign issue and it needs to be asked where the media was in this. Let the campaign begin. This is an issue Obama gave his opponents to show how he is not to be trusted.

So true. The delusion is strong.

BTW, don’t fall for the “either/or” folks who will come along to tell you that you’ve given up. Just because we know how blind the American electorate is, doesn’t mean we don’t continue to stand for (and work for) what is right.

I agree with you. He is ignorant of how we might do things, but he is very good at implementing what he wants in his far left marxist view of the world. He is determined, dangerous and successful so far.

He must go ASAP or even sooner.

Not only that, but English signs on private businesses were outlawed in Quebec. The pandering that has gone on to one province is an outrage. The rest of Canada is sick of them.

my advice to Israel: simply ignore Obama. He’s an @ss who lives in his own fantasy land. He’s also a weakling, so ignoring him won’t have many consequences. Finally, Obama won’t be around that long either.

Badly written first sentence, although I think I know what they were trying to say. I don’t think Israel was upset at Canada’s position, rather the U.S.

I was told that if the French Canadians sided with the British against the Americans during the war of 1812, they would be guaranteed their autonomy.

Canada paid dearly for that mistake!
