Arabs Accuse Israel of Deploying Trees as Soldiers in the Negev

How much more ridiculous can Palestinian Authority Arabs make themselves appear before foreign ministers stop taking them seriously?

Arabs in Canada tried to protest an appearance by Canadian Prime Stephen Harper at a Jewish National Fund of Canada event because trees that the JNF plants are “soldiers in the Zionist army of occupation,” the website of the Yediot Acharonot newspaper reported.

Harper has staunchly stood in support of Israel more than any other leader in the world and plans to visit the country in January for the first time as Prime Minister.

The JNF hosted Harper at the “Negev Dinner” Sunday, and Canadian police prevented disturbances from protesters, already riled up by the Palestinian Authority over the “Prawer Plan,” designed as a compromise to make some kind of order out of chaos on the Negev that has been overrun by tens of thousands of Bedouin in recent years.

More than 3,500 supporters of Israel, including Christians, attended the high-priced fundraiser, where Harper made a personal donation to Israel for an aviary to be known as the Stephen J. Harper Hula Valley Bird Sanctuary Visitor and Education Center in northern Israel.

He announced his first official trip to the Middle East and was so excited that he broke out into song, singing songs from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

In a videotaped message played after Mr. Harper spoke, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lauded his Canadian counterpart for “unabashedly, unapologetically,” standing up for Israel.

Outside the convention hall where the dinner was held, Arabs chanted, “Harper, Harper, will you see, Palestine will be free.” The Calgary Herald quoted  activist  Yafa Jarrar as saying, “The main message really is to push Canada to end its complicity with these violations of international law that Israel commits.”

The activist may have been referring the war crimes committed by those “soldiers” who have been planted to occupy Israel.

    So the Arabs are bigger idiots than we first believed

  2. John DeLancy says:

    My two cents …
    It's fun to see Israel being turned from a desert into a garden in fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
    And I wish the US had a righteous leader like Canada's Prime Minister!

  3. For people who live in deserts, they don't have their priorities down. Next they'll consider water the enemy since water makes up 80% of every Jew. And then they'll poison the air because it supports Jewish life. No shade, no water, no air…if a Jew makes good use of it, it must be bad.

  4. Greening the dessert or running red with blood? Guess its all in the colour. Israelis want it green and Arabs choose red. The tragedy is that the Arabs have a propaganda war going and are fed the hatred for Jews/Israelis, whilst Israelis/Jews still believe in 'old-fashioned' values, like justice, charity and Tikkun Olam!

  5. Cathy Sherman says:

    Maybe these Arabs feel these are Mossad trees meant to house and hide the Mossad eagle, hyrax, shark or duck spies?
