Great editorial by Jonathan Kay about the Operation Cast Lead’s effect on Canadian Left

It’s been a long time since there has been a left-wing Canadian politician who isn’t a downright cartoon.

Jonathan Kay welcomes Michael Ignatieff’s pro-Israel stance: Finally, an adult is in charge of this party. Link to National Post Editorial.

Here in Canada, the war has led to another welcome schism, dividing the
Left between its adult and child factions — between those mature enough
to understand that Israel has the same right to defend itself against
suicide bombs and rockets as any other nation, and those who believe
Israeli Jews should pay for the original sin of existence by passively
enduring terrorism in perpetuity.

The only thing I could criticize this article for is that comparing people like Naomi Klein to children is an insult to children. <shudder>
