Thank you, Canada !

The Right Honourable Stephen Joseph Harper – Prime Minister of Canada.
“Unfortunately, Israel at 60 remains a country under threat, threatened by groups and regimes who deny, to this very day, its right to exist. And why? Make no mistake. Look beyond the thinly veiled rationalizations – because they hate Israel, just as much as they hate the Jewish people. Our government believes that those who threaten Israel also threaten Canada”
 
It is clear that in Canda the delegitimization of Israel must be delegitimized through a devised state formula that could match the drives to isolate Israel. A working formula was officially introduced to the Government of Canada, culminating in the signing of the historic Ottawa Protocol at the end of September. Preceding it was a report by a coalition of current and former parliamentarians which concluded that incidents of anti-Semitism are on the rise in Canada, especially on University Campuses. The coalition called upon the Government of Canada to combat this wave, which it had been investigating since November of 2009, and had then hosted an international conference on anti-Semitism in Ottawa a year later. The coalition concluded with key recommendations: i) that police forces across Canada be better trained to deal with anti-Semitism ii) that universities host conferences to counter events such as “Israeli Apartheid Week” and iii) that there should be a clear definition of what anti-Semitism entails.
