'Twas Ever Thus--The Left Is Out to Lunch Re Harper's Israel Visit

If you're wondering how any Canadian Jew who supports Israel could take issue with Harper's Israeli sojourn, a Carleton U journalism prof shows how it's done (i.e. by ignoring Harper's moral clarity and embracing murky, irrelevant nuance):
Ultimately, we might ask, just what did this visit do except reinforce a status quo with some mutually soothing, self-comforting delusions? Did the visit urge Netanyahu to give the nuclear deal with Iran a chance? Did it introduce Netanyahu to a broader Canada, and Harper to a broader Israel?
He forgot to ask if it helped the Aboriginals and the transsexual community ('cause if it didn't, then what was the point?).  ;)
