THE RIGHT HONOURABLE STEPHEN HARPER CANADA’S 22ND PRIME MINISTER
On Tuesday 28 February 2017 UIAWA is proud to welcome Stephen Harper as the main speaker for our Campaign launch.
Stephen Harper retired as Prime Minister of Canada in November 2015. He proved to be one of Israel’s greatest friends through his open and unambiguous support.
When Harper finished his term in office the Jerusalem Post wrote “What is unlikely is that anyone in the near future will outdo him regarding the passion, consistency, sincerity and intensity of his support for Israel.”
An editorial in the Times of Israel claimed that he was undoubtedly the world leader most supportive of Israel and that when he finished his term, Israel would lose one of its best friends on the international stage. Harper’s administration was in Benjamin Netanyahu’s dream team.
Harper is undoubtedly the most high profile speaker to address our Community in many years. We are privileged to have him join us at this communal show of solidarity.
