There’s no doubt that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made a lot of fans during his official state visit to Israel, Monday. Israeli Canadians went absolutely gaga over him, lining up the streets (well, one street) to welcome his procession.

It’s so rare that someone out there should be on our side these days, that we go nuts (especially, like I said, the Canadians among us).

One woman was not celebrating: Zehava Gal-On, chair of the leftist Meretz party reacted to Harper’s loving speech in the Knesset by saying: “He sounds like a spokesman for the Foreign Office.”

She meant the Israeli Foreign office. She meant it was inconceivable that a high official outside Israel would say nice things about us. It really made her angry.

And, of course, the Arab MKs left the assembly in anger.

So, not entirely a bad day…

  1. Canada is a more progressive (not a political claim but in a positive sense) than the US. I’d prefer it but it’s too damned cold. The US is.

    Feel free to keep him.
    He is an anti-democratic clown who has ruined Canada financially and is selling us to China. He has no redeeming features or skills to speak of. He's all yours.

  6. Sbm Avfc says:

    I wonder how many people realize he is buying VOTES… An election is next year and his party is losing…. BTW he is a complete douchebag anyways

  7. Dave Murray says:

    Couldn't agree more! Nailed it!

    We'll trade you Harper for two rolls of hockey tape and a broken stick.

  9. Red Forneri says:

    How much did the tax payers of Canada have to pay for harper's rally crowd?

  10. Tina Nodwell says:

    Harper is the first PM in the history of Canada who openly commits treason against Canada's people and environment. He is a narcissistic sociopath with delusions of grandeur. He likes to lecture other countries about human rights and democracy, while he strips the rights our ancestors fought long and hard for.

  11. Joe Khoury says:

    Thank you Mr. Harper for standing for the Moral right. You made most freedom loving Canadians proud.! we need you to continue to spread the truth….
