It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Canada was denied a seat at the UN security council for the first time in its history. The security council has been hijacked by a coaliton of Islamist thugs and socialist states, and Canada has virtually led the charge in opposing the UN obsession with attacking Israel.
The 2001 Durban I World Conference Against Racism disintegrated into an all out assault against Israel, unjustifiably accusing it of ethnic cleansing, branding it an apartheid state and calling for sanctions and boycotts against it. The anti-Israel onslaught was led by Iran and Yasser Arafat. Yet the conference ignored the unspeakable horror of genocide in Darfur and the black slave trade by Arabs in Mauratania. Canada openly expressed its disapproval.
Canada was the first country in the world to announce it would not attend the Durban 2 conference. The Governments of Israel, the United States, and much of the European Union later followed Canada’s lead and boycotted the conference. “Canada’s fears that Durban 2 would, like its predecessor Durban 1, descend into an anti-Semitic hatefest were fully vindicated”
Then in September 2009, Canada walked out at the start of Ahmedinejad’s repugnant anti-Israel speech at the UN General Assembly, followed by others, humiliating the Iranian leader as he continued to address a half empty chamber.
And now it’s payback.
