"We Reach For Our Kneepads Much Quicker"

Canada is Israel's top ally: Baird

"Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says that Canada is Israel's staunchest ally in the world, surpassing even the United States in its support.

During a lengthy interview with the Jerusalem Post, Baird was asked: "You said that Canada is Israel's greatest friend in the world. Where is the U.S. in this?"

"I think the U.S. is a good friend, too," Baird said. "I like to think we are better."

Baird was in Israel this week attending a foreign policy conference and meeting with Israeli officials.

The article, titled Warm support from the chilly North, says that since Stephen Harper became prime minister in 2006, Canada has "set the gold standard for support of the Jewish state."

"There is not a government on the planet today more supportive of Israel than Harper's Canada," the article says."
