CBC is financed by Taxpayers.CBC has always been pro-Palistinian and Anti-Israelli to cater to Arab Petro-Dollars and defy All common sense.CBC is always bashing our great Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his stand on the Only democracy in the Middle East. thank you.
It's silly of this article to suggest that the fact that a person is Jewish would have no impact on their views about Israel. Of course it does. Sometimes it leads to support of Israel. Sometimes, when the person feels the need to demonstrate to the world that he or she is fairminded, it leads them to be hostile to Israel.
But so what? Canada wanted an ambassador to Israel that supports Israel — not someone who would fairly choose between Israel and the barbarians who want to murder Israeli civilians. I don't think that's so bad.
Plus, has anyone, at the CBC, or the Jewish Press, checked out the religious credentials of other ambassadors to other sovereign states? Anybody check recently as to whether any countries have sent Catholics as ambassadors to the Vatican?
What? Just because someone is Jewish should not be appointed ambassador to Israel – even though she is absolutely qualified? Who is this scum bag "anchor reporter"? His repeated questioning of Baird is so anti-semitic and biased that he should be suspended without pay or fired for his gross violation of his journalistic ethics! BTW, kudos to Baird for handling this idiot and constantly reminding him of the official lawful positions of the Canadian Government.
