Alone among G8 leaders, the Canadian Prime Minister refuses to embrace the U.S. President’s plan to begin peace negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis on the basis of a return to Israel’s de facto borders as they existed before its 1967 war with neighbouring Arab countries....
Mr. Harper made his opposition to that position clear through a spokesperson shortly after Mr. Obama’s Middle East speech last week in a pre-G8 briefing, making him the lone leader in the G8 not to back the U.S. preconditions.
G8 leaders, with the exception of Canada, had been prepared to push for pre-1967 borders as a precondition for Israel's negotiations with the Palestinians. Ten days later and the "Auschwitz" Borders are now the new "norm". The taboo is gone.
Now it's just a matter of time before the "right of return" to Israel by the "Palestinian refugees" is acceptable - and Jerusalem will be on the chopping block before we know it.
