Canada Welcomes Mossad Assassin, Offers Him New Identity - by Richard Silverstein
"You'd think Canadians might have a few things to say about farming out their intelligence operations to a foreign country and allowing that country to become an unofficial arm of Canadian intelligence.
Apparently this far-right Canadian government believes becoming an appurtenance of the State of Israel is the way to win elections. Why else would a Harper minister have signed an extraordinary public security agreement with Israeli Public Security Minister, Avi Dichter in 2008?
Who'd have thought that one of the ways in which this agreement would be implemented on the ground would be in abetting an act of Israeli state terrorism?
This is yet another example of Canada's government jumping into bed with Israeli spies and generals with blood on their hands. The appointment of Israel's first military attache to Canada was also part of this 'Thickening of the intelligence/ military relationship with Israel.
This story comes on the heels of Stephen Harper's recent pilgrimage to Israel in which he fawned over Bibi Netanyahu.
Now Harper has become Bibi's poodle."
