The exact quote (courtesy of CTV) in the context of reaction to a remark by Michael Ignatieff:
When asked about the term "war crime" to describe Israel's action against Hezbollah in Lebanon, Harper told reporters at a press conference on Thursday that he found the usage inappropriate, saying "I don't support that view."
"This is consistent with the anti-Israeli position that has been taken with virtually all of the candidates of the Liberal leadership, and I don't think it's helpful or useful."
Of course the outrage spewed from all Gritty corners. (Well at least there's one thing they can all agree on!)
This whole situation reminds me of Catholic MP's whose voting records often seem to be in conflict with Church teachings and dogma.
Start walking the talk, guys. Then maybe your protests will be more credible.

Bob Rae seems especially apoplectic about the Prime Minister's observations.
Is it just because his wife and children are Jewish, or could it perhaps be another desperate attempt to garner sympathy and erase horrible memories of his disgraceful stint as premier from the minds of Ontario voters?
