A metaphorical note thrown through Jack Layton's window last night: "Unless you are willing to treat Israel like it is part of Canada and unquestioningly support every last decision made by its leadership, don't say anything at all. You have been warned."
Instant Update: It seems a bit odd for Canada to boycott a such a meeting and give the field over completely to "rogue" states. Would it not make more sense for Canada to be there and speak out against the "Israel should be wiped off the map" crowd? This seems more like a strategy to help the real Israel haters to get out their message as a means to justify western Islamophobes. Extremists love to feed off each other's hatred. Why is Canada enabling extremism?
Update On Sunday: No wonder the piece reads like it was written by someone from the American Enterprise Institute.
