Canada’s Stephen Harper Cancels Dome Of The Rock Visit After Jewish Bodyguards Barred


canadian-prime-minister-stephen-harperCanadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper called off a visit to the Dome of the Rock on the Har Habayis on Tuesday after he was told that his Jewish bodyguards could not enter the area, B’nai B’rith Canada revealed.

“It is a shame that the Prime Minister’s visit to the Kotel was marred after he learned that his security detail would not be allowed in to the Dome of the Rock because they are Jewish,” said Frank Dimant, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada. “B’nai Brith delegations have also faced moments of discrimination and harassment on previous missions. We have raised this issue with Canada’s Office of Religious Freedom. Equal access must be given to Jewish worshipers wishing to ascend the Temple Mount. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the religious discrimination going on at the hands of the Islamic Waqf responsible for administering the site.”

  1. Show the Arabs you support them. Hold your candle higher for them to see you have a future and they are going to need to find better hopes for their own.

  2. As #1 said!
    I have little appreciation for the PM’s misguided feelings. He might be equally indignant if Moshiach in person barred tamei visitors and some sorry soul cried “religious discrimination”.
