It’s hard to know where to start here, but if you want to examine Harper’s “rock star welcome” and performance in Israel, just peruse the links below.
I am absolutely astonished that Harper would completely ignore Israel’s on-going seizures of Palestinian land, vicious military occupation of Palestine, and unwillingness to hold back “settlers” who attack Palestinians, damage their property, and destroy their trees and crops.
And now Harper has the nerve to say that criticism of Israel constitutes “anti-Semitism”?
