Stephen Harper A "Modern-Day Abraham": Begin-Sadat Center

...for his relentlessly standing up for Israel.

“Our biblical patriarch Abraham pleaded with God to rescind the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, arguing that the virtues of just a few righteous people could suffice to save that world,” say the authors of an article appearing Sunday in Perspectives, a publication of the Israel-based Begin-Sadat Centre for Strategic Studies.

“In our modern world, that righteous person – whose voice of conscience, critique and courage may be the saving grace – is surely Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.”

 The analysis was written by Efraim Inbar, a professor of political science at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University, and David Weinberg, the public affairs director at the Begin-Sadat Centre. 
 I agree.
