Of course, a Republican dream is a leftist's nightmare, and at least one Canadian Jew quoted in the article--"human rights" mighty mouth, the dainty Karen Mock--is hoping Jews will revert to their left/Lib default setting come the next federal election. And, claims Mock, they have good reason to reverse and their sharp turn:
“Justin Trudeau values the kind of policies his father innovated – multiculturalism, a safe haven for refugees, peacekeeping,” said Karen Mock, a retired human rights educator and former Liberal candidate in Toronto. “He is a product of that legacy, and many Jews have long memories for that.”Also, unlike previous Liberal contender, Michael Ignatieff, Justin is supposedly a really big fan of Israel taking on its terrorist foes:
Trudeau has tried hard not to let Harper make Israel a wedge issue. During last summer’s war in Gaza, the Liberal Party’s foreign affairs spokesman issued a drab, even-handed news release on the conflict. The following day, Trudeau overrode him with a passionate endorsement of Israel’s right to self-defense.Wow, what with his groovy "social justice" vibe and his passion for Israeli self-defense, that Justin Trudeau does sound pretty spectacular. And I might consider voting for him if A) I was still on/of the left, something I haven't been for the past 15 years; B) I didn't happen know that Trudeau was such a colossal ninny; and C) I was unaware of some of his other, more problematic "passions" (ones which, go figure, neither the Forward nor Ms. Mock bother to mention). They include: taking part in prayer services at sundry mosques, speaking at an ISNA Canada convention, and getting advice from a Zion-loathing former head of the Canadian Arab Federation as well as from his Zion-loathing brother, Alexandre. a.k.a Sacha.
Other than all that, "passionate" Justin is aces with this Jew!
