Canada will back Israel whatever the cost

Canada’s Prime Minister, Stephen Harper

Following leaders’ call for immediate resumption of Mideast talks, Canada insists language be softened, “1967 borders” removed from statement.

A group of Eight leaders had to soften a statement urging Israel and the Palestinians to return to negotiations because Canada objected to a specific mention of 1967 borders, diplomats said on Friday.

Canada’s right-leaning Conservative government has adopted a staunchly pro-Israel position in international negotiations since coming to power in 2006, with Prime Minister Stephen Harper saying Canada will back Israel whatever the cost.

Diplomats involved in Middle East discussions at the G8 summit said Ottawa had insisted that no mention of Israel’s pre-1967 borders be made in the leaders’ final communique, even though most of the other leaders wanted a mention.

“The Canadians were really very adamant, even though Obama expressly referred to 1967 borders in his speech last week,” one European diplomat said.

COMMENT FROM PASTOR LUIS: “Virtually one of the last countries left to stand up for Israel is Canada. Pray for Canada, the USA, and other countries to insist that Middle East Talks’ language be softened, and “1967 borders” removed from statement.”


Understanding the Middle East Conflict

The State of Israel

God always keeps His promises

Why can’t the politicians ever mediate a workable, permanent peace plan between the Jewish state and the Palestinian Arabs? It’s very simple: The land of Israel belongs solely to the Jews; God will never allow it to be divided up. The Palestinian people need to look elsewhere for land outside the borders of Israel. The Palestinians certainly have a right to form their own state – just not in the land of Israel. There are vast numbers of areas in the Middle East where they could do so.

When Abraham first settled in the land of Israel thousands of years ago, God made this promise to Abraham: “Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are towards the north, south, east and west; for all the land which you can see, to you I will give it, and to your seed [Isaac’s offspring] forever” -Genesis 13:14-15 (JCV).

The promise was NOT made to Ishmael and his descendants (the Arabs and Palestinians). It was made only to the chosen heir, Isaac, and his descendants, the Jews. God promised the land of Israel to the Jewish people FOREVER. No politician is ever going to change God’s mind no matter how hard he tries.

Until the Politicians recognize that God always keeps His promises to the Jews, all their peace agreements and diplomatic efforts will be continually frustrated.
