Key Minister Stephen Harper issued a assertion today expressing Canada’s goodwill on the situation of Israel’s birthday. The assertion is a honest one particular and signifies the admiration that goes out from one democracy to another.
Reading the Primary Minister of Canada’s statement manufactured me want to verify www.whitehouse.gov to see how our possess quite eloquent president would greet the Israelis. I seemed and looked, but couldn’t uncover anything. You can get the President’s witty speak at the White Property Correspondents Association dinner. Mr. Obama admitted that final calendar year, the very first of what we pray will be his final phrase, was a poor one for him. Why, it was so undesirable, the president jibed, that “even the 47% had been telling Mitt Romney they ended up sorry.” That was funny.
But no concept to Israel, the only democracy in the Mideast. No sort phrases to our only dependable ally in the region.
Well, maybe I could find it on the State Office internet site. Surely, Sec. of Point out John Kerry would like to make nice to Israel. He requirements to following his notorious gaffe evaluating Israel’s long term to “apartheid,” like South Africa’s past.
Examining in at www.point out.gov, I searched and searched for birthday messages to Israel. Nada. None. Nowhere.
I did discover a glowing statement about our improving relations with (drumroll, Marine Band, make sure you) ANGOLA! Properly, that’s good news.
Digging further into the State Department’s informative site, I discover that ex-Sen. Russ Feingold is Mr. Kerry’s Envoy to the Great Lakes.
Who knew we even experienced an envoy to bodies of water?
Which only serves to remind me that Israel could teach our water borne envoys a whole lot. As in parting the waters, stilling them, and walking on them.
This is a working day for the relaxation of us to thank God we have close friends in Israel. Who blesses you I will bless who curses you I will curse states the Lord.
That promise comes to us from an even increased authority than the president, the secretary of point out, and even larger than the White House Correspondents.
