The Love Song of J. Pierre Trudeau

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two.
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use.
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous -
Almost, at times, the Fool.

"As I've said many times, before and after visiting Israel, standing up for Israel is more than just standing up for her security. It is also standing up for the very values and ideals that our two countries share - democracy, openness, tolerance, compassion, respect for the rule of law, and perhaps above all, the quest for peace. I want to reiterate that the Liberal Party of Canada will have Israel's back. Not because it is in our political interests to do so at home but because it is the right thing to do. I do want to emphasise the importance of having a political consensus in Ottowa across party lines. We must support Israel. Canada must remain a steadfast and true friend to Israel. The only way to accomplish that goal is to make sure that, regardless of our differences, all Canadian political parties are united in our support for a safe, secure and prosperous state of Israel." (Justin Trudeau, 6/4/14)
