Canadian Foreign Minister: Canada Will Not Help Europe Or America Arm Syrian Rebels

A wise position to take …

By JESSICA MURPHY, Sun News – “OTTAWA – Canada is breaking ranks with its European Union allies over the decision to allow member countries to arm Syrian rebels.

On Tuesday, the EU failed to renew its Syrian arms embargo, freeing countries to funnel arms into the war-torn Mideast nation – an endeavour supported by both France and the UK.

Flashback: Canadian Prime Minister: ‘Islamic Militancy’ Poses Greatest Security Threat to Canada – “Prime Minister Stephen Harper sees Islamic terrorism as the greatest threat to Canada’s security, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Tuesday. In an exclusive interview that is to air in its entirety Thursday, the Conservative prime minister told the CBC he believes Canada is safer now than it was when al-Qaida terrorist cells attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. However, he said, ‘the major threat is still Islamicism.’” Read more.

    It looks more and more likely that America, and not Canada, will be aligned with the forces of the Antichrist. Just a generation ago; who would have thought that was possible?
