Canada is more or less taken for granted by Americans as a generally calm and orderly country, a close ally and a reliable partner in world affairs.
But beneath the surface, Canada is a troubled country, and the present Liberal government to a large extent deliberately has distanced Canada from the United States on matters relating to economy and national security that under the Conservative government of the former Prime Minister Stephen Harper were more or less in harmony with America.

The recent flare up of tensions caused by the anti-Semitic rantings of American black Moslem Louis Farrakhan, and the lack of condemnation, let alone outright support he received from Democrats and leftists, is hopefully a final footnote in the fictional 50 year alliance between American Jews and blacks.

Embracing this narrative went far beyond political correctness, as it became a foundational underpinning among many in the American Jewish community for half a century.
This black-Jewish alliance, however, was only practiced at the level of the anemic Jewish and black leaderships, and not for one day did it exist among members of the Jewish and black communities.
