First we hear of the Canadian troops flaying the skin off those Taliban Lady boy’s bums, and now, increasing bone density from Canada’s PM.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday it's not unfair to liken Hezbollah to the Nazis, who once ruled Germany, because both stand for the destruction of the ''Jewish nation.''And that position.
In an interview with CanWest News Service, Harper was asked if the comparison made earlier in the day by his parliamentary secretary Conservative MP Jason Kenney, was appropriate.
''Like all comparisons, it's true in some ways, and not in others,'' he said, ''but as near as I can tell, both Hezbollah and the Nazi party stand for the elimination of the Jewish nation. So I think that's pretty fundamental and, in that sense, I don't think it's unfair.
''I think those who associate themselves with Hezbollah in this country are operating beyond the pale, and they're frankly operating in defence of an organization that is an illegal criminal organization in this country," said Harper.
Earlier in the day, Kenney held a news conference to blast Liberal Borys Wrzesnewskyj for the position he expressed on Hezbollah during his tour of Lebanon.
An Ontario Liberal MP came under political fire Monday, including his own, for comments indicating Canada should remove Hezbollah from the country's list of terrorist organizations remarks he denies making.Maybe I’m going soft, but I can understand why he said that and is now back-pedalling, you can call George Bush the number one terrorist and call him Bushitler and there are no consequences, well other than making a fool of yourself. But criticize Hizbullah in Lebanon and you mayl wind up with your bits and pieces being shipped back home, wrapped in the Canadian flag.
Borys Wrzesnewskyj, the Liberals' associate foreign affairs critic, was quoted in media reports Monday from Lebanon saying he favoured lifting the terrorist label from Hezbollah, which has been on Canada's terror list since 2002.
But Wrzesnewskyj, who was in Lebanon with two other MPs on a fact-finding mission over the weekend organized by the National Council on Canada-Arab Relations, released a statement Monday saying he made no such comments.
