Obama is now taking some heat from, of all places, Canada for the bizarre comparison of the relationship between Israel and Palestine to that of the United States and Canada.
“There will be a sovereign Palestinian state, a sovereign Jewish state of Israel and those two states can, I think, will be able to deal with each other the same way all states do,” he added. “I mean, you know, the United States and Canada has arguments once in a while, but they’re not the nature of arguments that can’t be solved diplomatically.”
The President's strange comparison caused a new hashtag on Twitter:
#TheCanucksAreComing, and right-wing pundits tore a strip off Obama for failing to understand either relationship properly.
“Apparently, the President doesn’t understand - or chooses to ignore - the fact there are a few differences regarding U.S. relations with our neighbor to the North,” wrote Robert Laurie at Canadafreepress.com, a right-win blog site about American politics.
“Canada isn’t controlled by a terrorist organization named Hamas.
(And) Canada isn’t calling for the destruction of the United States,”
Obama’s supporters have defended the President, saying he was talking about a future relationship between Palestine and Israel, when their disagreements are solved diplomatically, like other states do including Canada and the U.S.
Until then, look out Buffalo!
