A small, petty demagogue like Obama and his goosestepping administration could learn something from moral, clear leaders like Steven Harper in Canada. It is at once heartening that so moral and clear a force is an example of rational leadership on the world stage, and yet disheartening that that voice, that such a leader is not American. Once a light unto nations, we have been so denigrated as to stand for savagery.
Vivian Bercovici, the New Canadian Ambassador to Israel, is a sweet, fresh breeze blowing in from the malodorous international coummunity cesspool.

Canada’s new ambassador to Tel Aviv is a lawyer and outspoken commentator on Middle East issues who has criticized Palestinian leaders for their “intransigence” and “ideological commitment” to Israel’s destruction.
Vivian Bercovici, who was appointed to the diplomatic post Wednesday by Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, has been voicing her views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the opinion pages of the Toronto Star for the past year.
Ambassador Vivian Bercovici, in her own words
“For Israel, a nuclear Iran is a clear existential threat. It’s no joke.”
“The Iranian regime is a brutal theocracy … I wouldn’t buy snake oil from these guys, much less trust them, on a smile, when they assure that they enrich uranium for peaceful purposes.”
“To simply impose the apartheid paradigm on Israel is a Big Fat Lie.”
“Consensus in the Middle East is rare, but it seems that President Barack Obama has forged one inadvertently. Whether supporting or opposing American military intervention in Syria, there is little, if any, enthusiasm in any quarter for his dithering decision-making.”
“A weak president means a weak America, a very worrisome proposition for Israel.”
“In the UN, no country on the planet can be a more heinous violator of human rights than Israel.”
“That Western leaders, among them President Barack Obama and U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague, regard Israel as the peace spoiler, defies logic.”
