Harper tells Israeli PM Canada doesn't support settlement plans

Source: CTV News

Just days after Canada stood in solidarity with Israel to oppose a Palestinian statehood bid at the UN, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he disapproves of a plan to build more settlements east of Jerusalem.

Canada’s opposition to an expansion set for the West Bank was expressed in a phone call between the two leaders, the Prime Minister’s Office told CTV News.

The move by Harper is a rare break from Canada’s staunch support for Israel on Mideast policy.

Canada was among a minority of countries in the UN’s General Assembly that did not support a bid to recognize Palestine’s symbolic statehood in New York last week. The vote officially elevated Palestine’s UN status to that of non-member observer.

1. "Canada doesn't support ..." -- Who knew that Canadians were anti-Semitic?

2. That'll teach him.

"We don't condone your plans to destroy the peace process for the rest of time itself, but of course we won't do anything about it."
