Thank you, Prime Minister Harper!

Prime Minister Stephen HarperAmong Israel’s few international friends, none have been as stalwart in recent years as Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In 2006, he was among the earliest and strongest supporters of Israel’s right to defend herself against Hezbollah in the second Lebanon war. In 2008, he led the Canadian boycott of the Israel-bashing Durban II conference, called out the U.N. for incitement against and delegitimization of Israel, and (again) supported Israel’s right to defend herself – this time in Operation Cast Lead in Gaza. In 2010, after losing a bid for a seat on the U.N. Security Council, Prime Minister Harper, an evangelical Christian, acknowledged that his pro-Israel stance was likely what cost Canada the coveted post, but said he would stand up against anti-Israel rhetoric  ”whatever the cost.

And today, he’s done it again.

Mr. Harper’s government announced that it has closed its embassy in Tehran, recalled its ambassador to Iran, and expelled Iranian diplomats from Canadian soil.

In a statement, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird said, “Canada’s position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today.”

We, and freedom-loving people around the globe, are grateful to Prime Minister Harper, his government, and the people of Canada for taking a stand.

      BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!
      If the world had more presidents like him, who stands up without fear of Iran and UN (a body that does NOT bring peace and justice), and no matter what he may have to pay for it. A seat in the UN security council is not as valuable as most people think, because the UN is an anti-semitic and anti-Israel body!

    If I may say so, this move by PM Harper is so uncanadian in so many ways. But I love the fact that we have a leader who is willing to break away from the pack and stand for Israel.

    I’m proud to be a Canadian and stand by my Prime Minister Harper in His conviction of standing by Israel. He is good example of leader who is not fallowing the popular opinion, but what Bible says

    Thank you for this news about PM Harper. We have been unaware of his support for Israel. His opposing Iran with bold words and actions is encouraging. Praise the Lord for him.
