    August 10, 2011

    Back in 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, "I think the government of Canada, when a Canadian citizen is ill-treated and when the rights of a Canadian citizen need to be defended, I think it's always the obligation of the government of Canada to vocally and publicly stand up for that Canadian citizen. That is what we will continue to do." That was then and this is now.

    August 10, 2011

    That was the headline over a recent post by David Hearst for The Guardian's Comment Is Free space. It began: "There is an Arabic word you come across a lot when Palestinians talk about their future.

Staying put against overwhelming odds is regarded as a victory."
