Canada's Moral Courage

Norm points out how easy it is to show moral leadership, even in the UN:

"..Canada will boycott Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s speech at the United Nations on Wednesday, saying his outbursts about the Holocaust and Israel are "shameful."

And , adds Norm,

"Germany is urging a walkout if Ahmadinejad repeats his denial or any other anti-Semitic statements."

Sadly, for the prevaricating Germans, Ahmadinejad's solid public record as a Holocaust denier, an antisemite and a would-be genocider is insufficient at this point to merit a more decisive gesture of rebuke and moral disgust.
