'Genocidal' Iran Must Be Stopped - Jason Kenney Says
Someone needs to ask Tory Cabinet Minister Jason Kenney if Canada is prepared to go to war with Iran. The Federal Minister has now said that the Harper government “stands four-square” with the Jewish community in its concerns about Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “genocidal intentions.”
Kenney spoke at Congregation Beth Israel Beth Aaron last week and pledged that Canada “will pursue every possible avenue in concert with our allies to ensure that [Iran] does not come into possession of nuclear weapons, which could unleash unimaginable violence.”
He said the government is looking at “every reasonable strategy” to thwart Ahmadinejad from his goal. Kenney said Harper understands that Iran is not interested in a two-state solution to the Palestinian issue, but “a final solution, in a perverted twist on history, that would complete the work Hitler began by eliminating the state that came into being as a haven for Jews.”
Harper, he said, is unshakable in his support for Israel, because he “understands its existential fight,” and he has told the Conservative caucus that he would not change his stance even if it means the fall of his government.
