I am really curious what Irwin Cotler thinks about the current state of affairs in the Middle East and what he thinks of Stephen Harper’s statements. Oh wait, he already wrote something about this back in 2004 for the Jerusalem Post.

Israel and the Jewish people have been singled out for differential and discriminatory treatment in the international arena — and worst of all — singled out for destruction. The time has come to sound the alarm — not only for Israel and the Jewish people whose safety and security is under existential threat and attack — but for the world community and the human condition as a whole. For as history has taught us only too well, while the persecution and discrimination may begin with Jews, it doesn’t end with Jews.

I urge all Liberals to read the whole article.
