Our Comments

If this had been a leader from any political party from an Islamic country the media would be all over this.

Barak says Israel is a ray of light in a relatively dark landscape dominated by the threat of terrorism, "We will never, ever yield to terror, period. Yielding to terror is like feeding crocodiles, they just want more."

Clearly Barak is referring to the Palestinian people as crocodiles.

Former Israeli PM speaks to Vancouver audience
Dec, 03 2006 - 11:20 PM

VANCOUVER/CKNW(AM980) - Under tight security, Vancouver played host to a former Israeli Prime Minister.

Speaking at an Oak Street Synagogue for a fundraiser, Ehud Barak says, unlike Canada, Israel comes from a tough neighborhood, constantly under threat.

Barak says Israel is a ray of light in a relatively dark landscape dominated by the threat of terrorism, "We will never, ever yield to terror, period. Yielding to terror is like feeding crocodiles, they just want more."

Meanwhile, a couple dozen protesters against Barak's visit demonstrated across the street. Hana Kawas with the Canada Palestine Association calls Barak a war criminal and says Canada should not allow him in the country, "Canada's role is terrible. Canada supports the war crimes that Israel commits on a daily basis against the Palestinians."

Pro-Israel demonstrators held a rally of their own, a handful of students waved Israeli flags and said Barak's visit should be an opportunity for dialogue instead of protest.
