    Canada recalls diplomats after Palestinians win UN vote[W: 10]

    Canada recalls diplomats after Palestinians win UN vote - Canada - CBC News

    Canada is temporarily recalling its heads of mission to Israel and the West Bank, along with its United Nations representatives in New York and Geneva, to protest the Palestinians' successful bid on Thursday for upgraded status in the UN.
    Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird pledged to "review the full range of its bilateral relationship" with the Palestinian Authority in the wake of the vote in New York City.
    "I want to get a sense from the diplomats what they see on the ground, how they see things going, and how we can effectively respond to what could be a new reality," Baird told CBC News in an interview from New York on Friday.
    Canada was one of nine countries, including the U.S. and Israel, to oppose upgrading the UN observer status of the Palestinian Authority from "entity" to "non-member state."

    How dare the nations of the world exercise their sovereinty and vote in a way they think is best to solve a long standing problem.

    And its not as if the vote was close - it was a total slaughter with only the USA, Canada, Czech Republic and Israel (with the some small bribed/bullied nations joining the gang like Panama, Marshall islands, Nauru, Palua, Micronesia - lol)

    Perhaps Harper can shut down the Canadian embassies in Sweden or Italy - maybe even in all 130+ countries that voted for the Palestinians???

    The most significant aspect of this outcome is that the UK abstain from voting (along with 40 other nations) but not before trying to bribe the Palestinians. Apparently the UK offered to give their YES vote provided the Palestinians did NOT pursue Israeli war crimes in the International Criminal Court. Now that they have attained non-member observer status in the UN General Assembly the Palestinians can join international organisation and sign up to conventions and treaties - which includes the ICC.

    I can see why Harper was frothing at the mouth like a petulent teenager

    You have a problem with Canada wanting to reassess the situation now the vote is done?

    Why is this news?

    Apparently the US is not the only country where a lot of citizens and politician have their lips on Israel's nut sack.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Exactly. How dare those Palestinians want to form their own nation and government.
