Conrad Black on Harper in Israel: A great moment for Canada

January 26th, 2014

By Conrad Black

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s address to the Israeli Knesset this week was one of the greatest speeches ever delivered by a Canadian leader, ranking (in content if not delivery, though that was quite adequate) with Sir John Macdonald’s defence of his conduct in the Pacific scandal in 1873, Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s parliamentary response to conscription in 1917, and Pierre E. Trudeau’s speech at the end of the Quebec sovereignty referendum campaign in 1980. The content of the Knesset speech was generally accurately reported in Canada, but not widely recognized as a brilliant address, as a great milestone in the rise of Canada as a power in the world, a clarification of the moral basis of this country’s foreign policy, and as an episode that brings distinction on the whole country.

The failed boycott campaign against Israel

January 5th, 2014

“An intellectual hatred is the worst.” — Yeats

By Rex Murphy

When university professors, stewards of knowledge for the next generation of thinkers, propose to fence off all contact, all mental commerce, with others of their kind, they lose the right to be called professors. When they selectively embrace a boycott of a single country’s academics and institutions, they reveal themselves as activists. Not professors but propagandists.

Did This Pro-Palestinian Activists’ Stunt at Rutgers Go Too Far?

Did this Pro Palestinian Activists’ Stunt at Rutgers Go Too Far?

Students at Rutgers University in New Jersey woke up this week to discover “eviction” notices pushed under the doors of their dorm rooms in a move by a pro-Palestinian group that at least one student is characterizing as “bullying,” “harassment” and “intimidation.”

According to accounts in the campus newspaper The Daily Targum, activists with Students for Justice in Palestine stuck the notices under the dormitory doors of some 1,000 students on all five of the university’s campuses.

The mock eviction notices were designed to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians, but some Jewish groups say the stunt was misleading and went too far.

Palestinians Accuse Peace Negotiators of Treason

August 19th, 2013

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, and Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat address reporters at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., on July 30, 2013.

If Palestinian children are condemned for playing football with Israelis, why should it be acceptable for Erekat to be talking with Livni? Palestinian leaders have simply not prepared their people for peace; instead they have delegitimized Israel to a point where it has become a “crime” for any Palestinian to be seen talking to, or negotiating with, any Israeli.

UN chief admits bias against Israel

August 18th, 2013

It sure is refreshing to hear the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s comments regarding Israel….. However I’m not holding my breath for real action or change at the top level of the UN.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem on Friday afternoon, and admitted that his organization was biased against Israel.

Responding to a student who said Israelis felt their country was discriminated against in the international organization, Ban confirmed that there was a biased attitude towards the Israeli people and Israeli government, stressing that it was “an unfortunate situation.”
