Canada will remain a steadfast supporter of Israel even if it means losing stature internationally, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said.
Addressing a three-day conference in Ottawa on battling global anti-Semitism, Harper said Monday that “when Israel, the only country in the world whose very existence is under attack, is consistently and conspicuously singled out for condemnation, I believe we are morally obligated to take a stand.”
In what was described as an embarrassing blow to Harper and his Conservatives, Canada recently lost a bid for a seat on the United Nations Security Council — a defeat attributed in part to Ottawa’s staunch backing of Israel.

That's not surprising as seemingly all nations have turned against Israel. Thanks for clearly stating your position, Stephen ! Excellent speech !
Finally, a leader with the courage to come to Israel’s defense. Prime Minister Steven Harper is obviously a great man. I hope that Eric Cantor will stay strong and not waiver in his offer to have Israel’s back. The American Christians are still with you, Israel. We will continue to be Watchmen on the Wall and are being very vocal on your behalf, although our pleas are falling on deaf ears.
I STAND WITH ISRAEL!
All the nations that are against Israel are also against God. Such nations will come under the wrath and condemnation of God sooner or later. God said he will fight against those that fight against Israel. It is the only land on this planet that God specically chose for His people. I can’t wait to see how the Israel’s enemies are consumed by God;s fire.
