As you know I'm a real romantic eh? And I'm usually a sucker for movies about two men in love. Especially if they're R-rated.
But I think it's safe to say that with the Middle East on the brink of a war that could kill millions of people, the last thing I needed to see was Stephen Harper on his knees blowing Benjamin Netanyahu.
For surely only a man in love could assume such a position.
Although his swearing-in at Rideau Hall must have happened in the dead of night, Canada appears to have a new foreign minister. His name is Benjamin Netanyahu. His day job may be prime minister of Israel, but Canada’s abrupt actions against Iran seem to confirm that the Harper government’s outsourcing of Canada’s Middle East policy to Jerusalem is now complete.
After shooting himself in the foot.
Closing an embassy is rarely done even in moments of hostility. By its very nature, it prevents the possibility of further relations with the country in question, good or bad, influential or ineffective. Messages of protest, off-record moves to quell an eruption, clandestine efforts to build relations with reformists within the regime – all of these options are no longer possible. Once you’ve pulled the plug, you’re out of the game.
Bibi...Bibi...It hurts sooooooo much. But I'd do ANYTHING to
And this tawdry little porno number couldn't have come at a worst time. Just as Netanyahu and his right-wing settler regime are debating whether to attack Iran before the American election. Because they know that only by striking in the next few weeks can they be sure that Obama will order American forces to finish the job.
Since the Israelis, and their Saudi allies who hate the Shia even more than they hate the Jews, can't do it alone.
Despite the increasingly sharp rhetoric coming out of Jerusalem, the idea of Israel launching a unilateral attack is almost as bad as allowing Tehran to continue its nuclear work unchallenged. It would invite wave after wave of Iranian counterattacks — by missile, terrorist, and a boat — jeopardizing countries throughout the region. It would wreak havoc with the world’s oil supply.
Without going nuclear.
And even if the reactors are hit, the ”Iranian retaliation will have a devastating regional consequences,” he adds. You don’t even want to know what the Middle East would look like the day after Israel attempts a nuclear strike on Iran.
Which would set the whole region on fire, usher in a new era of terrorism and dirty bombs, plunge the world into a brutal recession, and increase the chances of a catastrophic superpower confrontation, that would scorch the planet and salt its fields with radiation.
Oh boy. Once upon a time Canadian diplomats worked to promote peace between the warring parties in the Middle East. Now they're running for cover like rats, while their Con masters cheer for war and Mitt Romney's Republicans, by trying to undermine Obama's efforts to keep a muzzle on the Israelis.
You know...I don't know why Stephen Harper has this freaky obsession with all things Israel. And why he puts its interests before those of Canada. But I can't help thinking it's treason, and that it's got something to do with his angry God, and the apocalyptic beliefs of his missionary church. For everything he says these days sounds so phony and so creepy.
And this is so weird.
Can you believe it eh? I wanted to ask John Baird about Harper's man love for Netanyahu, only to find him on his knees.....PRAYING.
But then maybe we should all be doing that. Because you don't need a weatherman to know which way this one is BLOWING.
Bibi, Bibi, I LOVE you !!!!!!
God show us the WAY !!!!!!!
