[canada] pm blocks resolution which ignores israel’s suffering

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is beginning to look, in many people’s eyes, as a firm leader. He blocked a last-minute resolution at the Francophonie summit on Friday that would have recognized only Lebanon's suffering during this summer's conflict in the Middle East. He said that an institution like la Francophonie could not recognize suffering based on the nationality of its victims, and he called for recognition of the conflict's effect on Israeli residents. The resolution had been proposed by Egypt at the last minute of the annual meeting of French-speaking nations.

Same planet, different worlds. The Liberals just can't figure out Stephen Harper.
