My name is Fred and I am a gay conservative living in Ottawa. This blog supports limited government, the right of the State of Israel to live in peace and security, and tries to expose the threat to us all from cultural relativism, post-modernism, and radical Islam.

Amnesty loses it....

They go after Harper for his support of Israel and his private support of the death penalty....
The Amnesty report calls on party leaders to use the federal election campaign to restore Canada's commitment to rights at home and abroad.

The report said there has been an "erosion" of Canada's past policies, including a "principled and non-partisan reputation in the Middle East" because the government's "unflinching refusal" to criticize Israel's human-rights record has eroded Canada's reputation in the Middle East.

"Serious violations committed by the Israeli government have on occasion been described as 'a measured response' and Canada's voice was noticeably moderate when hundreds of thousands of Sri Lankan Tamils faced grave peril in early 2009," the report said.

Harper used the phrase "measured response" in July 2006 to describe Israel's decision to bomb Lebanon in retaliation for the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah terrorists based in that country.
You know, I used to write letters for Amnesty many years ago...when they had a better stance on human rights. Now, they are just politically-correct, post-modernist hacks. What a shame.

Amnesty Internation like just about every other organisation was long ago highjacked by leftist radicals and has no credibility. It is sad but people need to be aware of this fact.
