No pride in supporting a bully

re: “Opinion” article in Wed. Aug 6th edition headed “Even Americans praising Harper’s stance”.

I quote from the article as follows: “Over the past several weeks, the Conservative government has been resolute in its unconditional support for Israel.” Yes, he has. But Canada should be ashamed, not proud, of supporting the bully in such an unequal struggle. Body count: 1,875 to 67. Does anyone still believe that Palestine poses an existential threat to Israel?
