If it's Monday, this must be Jerusalem

Wow. Not only are we bankrolling this expedition and the Harper and the Rocking Rabbi's Roadie tour, but we are being looped into supporting the Israeli government no matter what. They wanna bomb Iran? Apparently we do too!

Not in my name. Thanks very much. I'm more of a traditional Canadian, not the war monger sort at all. 

David Akins column:

Basically, in Harper's formulation, you're an anti-Semite if you criticize Israel. And no, I don't believe I'm exaggerating. 

We have been hearing this bullshit from the Harper Conservatives and their supporters for a while now. 


Dare, and I mean DARE! to say anything not wholeheartedly supporting the actions of the Israeli government and suddenly you're a bigot, - an anti Semite.

I would like to say that is this is the new application of the term, I hearby announce my racism against old-white-establishment dudes owned by corporate entities.  

Makes as much sense as what I read today. Eh?  

And so it goes.

Obscure reference alert: If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium.
