It’s been well documented how awesome is Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Whether its regarding his ability to lead a nation during economically tough times, to his willingness to lighten up the mood sometimes with a bit of character, the PM definitely brings the awesomeness to the forefront.
But no more is this relevant than in the strong and outspoken support and praise the Prime Minister displays for Jews and the State of Israel. This admirable stance was once again on display on an international stage this past week as the PM spoke at the conference of the Inter-parliamentary Coalition for Combating Anti-Semitism in Ottawa.
Harper spoke with great charisma and confidence in showing just how important it is for not only Canadians, but for all people to speak out against and fight anti-Semitism.
I really could go on, but his words speak for themselves:
“Not just because it is the right thing to do, but because history shows us, and the ideology of the anti-Israel mob tell us all too well, that those who threaten the existence of the Jewish people are in the longer term a threat to all of us.”
