Stephen Harper goes too far with his pro-Israel stance

In a recent speech to mark the 60th anniversary of the state of Israel, Canadian PM Stephen Harper suggested that hatred for the state of Israel is tantamount to hatred for the Jewish people:

“Unfortunately, Israel at 60 remains a country under threat – threatened by those groups and regimes who deny to this day its right to exist … And why? Make no mistake, look beyond the thinly veiled rationalizations: Because they hate Israel, just as they hate the Jewish people.”

Linking Israel and “the Jewish people” in this fashion, raises questions about Harper’s Zionist sympathies and evangelical affiliations. It is reminiscent of the language used by certain pro-Israel US pastors.

Since Harper’s focus was Israel and its 60th anniversary, it’s worth pointing out that Israel is not in fact “Jewish”, unless you consider non-Jewish Israelis to be widgets rather than citizens. The Jewish population of Israel is around the 76% mark. There are also 16.3% Muslims, 2.1% Christian, 1.7% Druze. Not all of the 76% represent religious or even Zionist Jews. According to a 2004 Israel Central Bureau of Statistics study, 44% of Israelis describe themselves as “secular”, and of these only 53% professed a belief in God. Subsequent polling has shown a fluctuation in these numbers.

A more recent TGI poll conducted among 10,000 Israelis reveals that 55% believe that it is important to maintain boundaries between the state and religion. Sixty five percent polled said they felt more Israeli than Jewish. A survey conducted by Ynet and the Gesher organization found that among secular Israelis, 57% would have no problem if their son married a non-Jewish girl. Surprisingly among religious Jews, 13% said they would have no problem with the marriage either so long as the prospective bride had Israeli citizenship.

A recent Harvard study – “Coexistence in Israel: a National Study” – provides surprising information about the relations between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel. We are accustomed to media coverage that presents these communities as strife torn and polarized, but the truth is less extreme. The findings of the study provide optimism for those who believe in the prospect of a one-state solution. The study includes the following statistics:

• A great majority of both Jewish citizens (73%) and Arab citizens (94%) want Israel to be a society in which Arab and Jewish citizens have mutual respect and equal opportunities.
• 68% of Jewish citizens support teaching conversational Arabic in Jewish schools to help bring Arab and Jewish citizens together.
• 77% of Arab citizens would rather live in Israel than in any other country in the world.
• More than two-thirds of Jewish citizens (69%) believe contributing to coexistence is a personal responsibility; a majority (58%) of Jewish citizens also support cabinet level action.
• Arab citizens and Jewish citizens both underestimate their communities’ liking of the “other.”
• Urgent action on coexistence in Israel is desired: 66% of Jewish citizens and 84% of Arab citizens believe the Israeli government investments should begin now, and not wait until the end of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

The identification of the state of Israel with Jewishness entails a leap that some Israelis themselves would question – not just progressive Israeli secularists and Arab Israelis, but also those orthodox Jews who have consistently drawn a line between their Jewish faith and the Zionist state.

Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, was a Talmud scholar of the first rank. In his book “Va Yoel Moshe”, he made clear the orthodox position on Zionism, based not upon his personal opinion or prejudices, but upon midrash ( biblical interpretation). In reference to Tractate Kesubos 111a of the Talmud, Teitelbaum states that God and the people of Israel exchanged three vows prior to the exile from ancient Israel:

1. That the Jewish people would not ascend to the Holy Land as a group using force.
2. That the Jewish people would not rebel against the governments of countries in which they lived.
3. That the Jewish people would not, by their sins, prolong the coming of the Jewish Messiah.

Rabbi Teitelbaum was not alone in this view. Many Hasidic rabbis share his convictions with respect to Zionism.

In Canada, Yakov M. Rabkin, a Professor of History at the University of Montreal, is the author of “Threat Within: A Century of Jewish Opposition to Zionism.” A passage from the book illustrates the impact of Zionism upon pure, Torah-based Judaism:

“Worse than the toll of suffering, exploitation, death, and desecration of the Torah, has been the inner rot that Zionism has injected into the Jewish soul. It has dug deep into the essence of being a Jew … It has wreaked havoc among Jews both in Israel and America, by casting us in the role of Goliath-like oppressors. It has made cruelty and corruption the norm for its followers.”

Harper’s linking of hatred of Israel with hatred of Jews is a way of closing down political criticism of Israel by inferring that its critics are anti-Semitic. It makes you wonder what type of close minded idealogue has been elected to Canada’s top office. At times when you listen to Harper, you could be forgiven for thinking that he believes Israel has a divine mandate none should question. The truth is many Jews do in fact question the state of Israel, while continuing to defend its existence. One such group is the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians, that speaks out against Israeli policies they consider unjust. Are they also anti-Semitic?

Harper has taken such an extreme position on Israel that it is an embarrassment to many Canadians who value the traditional role Canada has played in international affairs. The one-sided views of the Prime Minister were echoed by comments made by Alan Baker, Israeli ambassador to Canada. Baker told The Globe and Mail that Muslims were having a growing influence on the foreign policies of European nations, and he ‘feared’ this might also turn out to be the case in Canada.

Baker seems to be inferring that Canadian Muslims are somehow crossing a line if they presume to advance their rights and interests as Canadian citizens. He refers to Canadian Muslims as having “their own values and principles” – the inference being that such values are in some way non-Canadian. Note to Mr Baker: Canada isn’t a lobby for the state of Israel … Canada is a fully fledged democracy and the views of Canadian Muslims are no less valid than the views of Canadian Jews.

It should be noted in the context of this discussion that according to the 2001 census, Muslims in Canada number 580,000 as compared with Jewish Canadians at 330,000.

Some of Baker’s remarks are presumptuous. He said: “I’ve got nothing against the fact that Muslims are members of the Canadian Parliament.” Talk about high handed. Canada isn’t doing its Muslim citizens a favor by including them in the political process – it is their right. Baker appears to be projecting the second-class status of Arab Israelis onto Canadian Muslims – a mistake, because unlike democracy in Israel – democracy in Canada isn’t a front for an entrenched supremacist ideology. When the governing party gets kicked out of office, it’s baggage goes with it.

At its best Canada is about equal opportunity and fair play for all – not about the cultural and political dominance of a small minority, however wealthy and influential. The disproportionate influence of the pro-Israel Jewish community in Canada, and the extent to which that influence has impacted the policies of the Tory Party should be a matter of grave concern to all Canadians who believe that the role of Canada on the international stage should be a broader and less partisan one than that currently being pursued by Stephen Harper.

Harper’s appeasement hits a new low, yet some still can’t grasp the fact that Canada is Zionist controlled. Is the opposition Zionist controlled as well?

“I guess my fear is what I see happening in some circles is (an) anti-Israeli sentiment, really just as a thinly disguised veil for good old-fashioned anti-Semitism, which I think is completely unacceptable,”Mr. Harper said in an interview with CJAD/CFRB radio.

Why is Harper working for the racist state of Israel? YayaCanada, an “alternative” Canadian internet news site, put it this way:

Harper’s blind support of Israeli policies is based partly on religious indoctrination, partly on directives from the US, and perhaps more importantly, his hope of “the Jewish vote” (a prejudicial term if ever there was one, suggesting that all Jews think with the same noodles).

Religious indoctrination and US appeasement(but what is the source of the pro-Israel sentiment of the US :-)) I can buy, but the “Jewish vote”? The folks at Yayacanada must be joking! The only Jewish votes that matter in a country where Jews are less than 2% of the population are those of the Zionist dominated media in Canada. The powerful Jews who own media are Zionists. Establishment Jews may have their disagreements but they are nearly always in agreement when it comes to irrational and treacherous, “unwavering” support of the world’s pariah, apartheid Israel.

Anyone that does not see that Zionists effectively control Canadian politics through their media domination is missing the big picture either through ignorance or malevolence. Politically ‘dissident’ sites like YayaCanada and ViveleCanada protect Zionists by covering the ‘other side’, but don’t reveal enough to actually expose the Zionists.

Whether it is political correctness(unforgiveable), ignorance(somewhat forgivable) or malfeasance(front groups), any Zionist protecting sites should be taken with a shaker of salt.

Even some pro-Palestinian blogs don’t really get it. There is no reasoning with Harper and the rest of the Bilderberg-vetted scum that dominate Canadian politics. Harper is not ignorant, he is fully aware of what he is doing and the powers he serves and it is time everyone woke up to it.

Here is an excerpt from an article discussing Harper’s latest subversion:

http://desertpeace.wordpress.com/2008/05/13/canadas-ignorant-prime-minister/

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently made outrageously ignorant comments on the plight of the Palestinian people.

<his comments were ignorant, but Harper is not. He is evil.-@>

He claimed that criticism of and opposition to the Israeli policies of ethnic cleansing and apartheid against the Palestinian people amounted to “anti-Semitism.”

“Unfortunately, Israel at 60 remains a country under threat – threatened by those groups and regimes who deny to this day its right to exist,” Harper said in a Toronto celebration marking the inauspicious anniversary of Israel’s birth.

“And why? Look beyond the thinly veiled rationalizations; because they hate Israel, just as they hate the Jewish people.”

Obviously, Harper was trying to curry favor with Jews by appearing more Israeli and more Zionist than many Israelis themselves are.

<No, you are looking at this the wrong way. He is playing along with the Zionist agenda of endless war and attacks on civil rights and free speech. The only “Jews” he has to please are those who own/control outlets like CBC, CTV, Canwest-Global and the associated multimedia empires because they decide who stays in power -@narchore>

    Nuke the Muslim world. That’s where the current threat is from. And, the benefit is, you’ll be down 2 billion in surplus population, and push peak oil back at least 2 decades, and rid the world of this 1400 year old scourge of Asia.
