Netanyahu Calls Trudeau

I’m sure he used small words:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has offered his congratulations to prime minister designate Justin Trudeau in a telephone call affirming the friendship of the two countries — even if it won’t always be shouted from Canada’s rooftops.

Rafael Barak, Israel’s ambassador to Canada, said the call from Netanyahu took place last Friday, and left his country assured that relations between Canada and the Jewish state will remain strong after the defeat of the Harper Conservatives on Oct. 19.

Harper faced much criticism for a Middle East policy that many analysts said tilted too much toward Israel, and gave short shrift to the Palestinians.

But Harper also built a very warm relationship of his own with Netanyahu, who regularly lauded his personal friend “Stephen” as a great friend to Israel.

Past Liberal governments have always had a pro-Israel foreign policy, but because of the vocal support of the Conservatives since 2006, some Israeli commentators have raised questions about whether the new Liberal majority government will still be as close to Israel.

    Wonder what they discussed, and how deep it was?
    Benny, IQ 200, Trudeau, IQ likely about 75 to 85 points lower…and that’s generous I’m sure….

      i doubt it was about hair care tips no matter how eager turdo la doo might have been.

    • David Murrell

      75 to 80 points lower? You mean 100 to 110 points lower!

        My first thought also. 115 would put him one standard deviation above the norm. I see Justin as one standard deviation below the norm at best which would put him in around 85.

        LOL, I did say I was being generous…

    It bloody well better be a continued close, warm relationship between the 2 countries.
    Would progressives consider my statement a threat.

    • Clausewitz

      They consider all thoughtful intelligent statements a threat.

    “Past Liberal governments have always had a pro-Israel foreign policy”? Wow, they sure fooled me and a lot of people.

  • Edubeat

    I didn’t realize Bibi could converse at Justin’s junior kindergarten level.

    • ntt1

      he is used to inbred arabs…very similar

      • David Murrell

        Good one!

    I have no doubt the Islamist in Justin’s Liberal party are already pushing him to support an “independent Palestine” in order to make it easier to attack Israel.

    JT is against deporting terrorists. That benefits (radical) Islam.
