I've been looking for a spot to drop this little gem of an editorial for awhile now, here seems as good a place as any. from our very own canadian zionist run news outlet called Canwest Global:
Europe has little to teach about world peace
Wednesday, November 19, 2003
A recent poll of European attitudes shows that 59 per cent think that Israel is the greatest threat to world peace.
Europeans like to think of themselves as politically sophisticated, but I've often wondered if many of them actually get past very shallow analysis of world affairs.
This latest anti-Israel attitude only confirms my suspicion that many of them do not.
We don't even need to consider Israeli-Palestinian questions in order to analyze this latest pathetic trend; we need only look at the past political leaders Europeans have either chosen or unfortunately allowed to rise to power.
In 1930, when Canadians were casting ballots for Richard Bennett, Germans propelled the Nazi party to second place in the Reichstag.
In 1932, when Americans were voting for Franklin Roosevelt, over a third of Germans cast a ballot for Adolf Hitler.
Besides the German chancellor, need I mention Mussolini ,or even the French penchant for constantly changing their republic?
While Canada and the United States have arguably been consistently improving democracies since at least the 1860s if not before, much of Europe was busy exchanging one tyranny for another until 1945, and only after we rescued Europeans from themselves once again.
Europe has much to teach North Americans about culture, art, and how to enjoy life.
But that continent has little to teach anyone about world peace.

this editorial comes from a op-ed spot called "the last word" where they run pieces at the end of the global national newscast. most of you are farmiliar with this kind of setup, only the editorials never really have any left/right balance, or even token left wing commentaries to give some appearance of fairness. its all whatever izzy asper (or his son now that he's dead) feels like he wants to run that day. a quick skim of the archives shows a list of titles like:
Unions Hinder Economic Prosperity
BBC's Left Wing Slant Hurts Its Credibility
Let's Get On With It: Arafat Must Go
We Could Learn From CIA-Orchestrated Coups (I'm not bullshitting you, this is verbatim)
Israel Has Right To Attack Terrorists In Syria
Anti-Zionism is the new Anti-Semitism
