Last month it was the release of a joint Canada-Israel postage stamp; this weekend it is the visit to Canada of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that is putting a stamp of approval on the relationship between the two countries.
Not since 1994, when the late Yitzhak Rabin visited Jean Chrétien (for the second time in less than a year), has an Israeli prime minister travelled to Canada.
“This visit is long overdue,” said Mr. Netanyahu’s spokesman, Mark Regev. “The Prime Minister is glad to have the opportunity to reaffirm our countries’ strong relationship.”

Well I live in Canada's capital and I saw a very interesting protest yesterday.
There were a bunch of Jewish people...the ones with the beards and black clothing.They were waving signs on how dissappointed they were with Isreal.There were Palastinians there beside them.
They were protesting with Iranians who were waving the Iranian flag.
Governments can have their official positions all they want...the people can see with their own eyes and don't want any more of this crap.
Imagine that...Jews,Iranians,and Palastinians all protesting whats going on over there and doing it peacefully together.
Screw what the official government position is...listen to the people.

I'm not really sure that Israel planned to be in Canada and conduct a raid at the same time. I'm sure the trip was planned much before the raid was.
But don't you think the timing was a little odd? I know that Israel knew at least a week to ten days ahead of time that this was going to be an issue. I'm not sure how far in advance leaders plan these kinds of visits.

Israel is running round the world and will not get any friends.
Israel is a killer and evil, and they are finished.

Just in case you didn't know, Arabs and Jews lived relatively peacefully up until the creation of Israel. They conducted business and lived in very close proximity sharing the land with one another.
The orthodox Jews who protest Israel are doing so because they believe that the country was to be given to them by "god", not by people. They do not accept the existence of Israel for that reason.
These guys are bad, Canada is good.
You have no problem - your government is good.
(1) that with the partial exceptions of Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien, Canadian leaders have supported Israel to the point of abasement,
(2) that Christian Zionism, in both its original and its evangelical form, should take their place among the explanations for this - the more usual obvious and still quite correct one being Canada's aping of first British and then American foreign policy -
(3) that Canada's devotion to Israel is so intense that its pro-Israel lobbies are pushing at an open door.
