The renowned Senior Rabbi of Kehilath Jeshurun on the Upper East Side tweeted a picture of himself holding his Canadian ID card, and wrote that he is “a Canadian who is embarrassed of the Canadian government”.

Rabbi Steinmetz posted the following:

“I am a Canadian who is embarrassed of the Canadian government. Prime Minister Trudeau has decided to officially suspend sales of weapons to Israel and to continue to fund UNWRA, which is effectively a subcontractor of Hamas.”

He continued, “This policy of rewarding terrorists and punishing a democratic ally is absurd and obscene. It is particularly galling that a Prime Minister who went out of his way to court the Jewish community when he needed them has turned his back on Israel so quickly.

“History will eventually tell the story of Trudeau the appeaser. And long after he exits the world stage, Israel will remain, strong and proud, a beacon of democracy in the Middle East.”

Invoking a timely and appropos message from the Megillah, he concluded his tweet: רֶוַח וְהַצָּלָה יַעֲמוֹד לַיְּהוּדִים מִמָּקוֹם אַחֵר וְאַתְּ וּבֵית אָבִיךְ תֹּאבֵדוּ

“[Safety] and Salvation will stand for the Jews from a different source, and you and your father’s family will be destroyed.”

Love child of Castro. What arms does Canada have to give anyways? The IDF could swat away the Canadian armed forces with a pea shooter. This is liberalism and pandering to the ishmalites. It is Sara after all though. The world is standing on its head to do in the Jews. But we will prevail as we have in Shushan!

No wonder Trudeau’s wife divorced – and while he was still in office. He’s completely lacking in character and any integrity. He’s a liar who even put TRUE in his own name as another lie.

All Canadians are fully vaccinated. They take vinishmartem very seriously. You saw what Trudeau did with the truckers, when they attempted to practice their free speech.

I believe it’s the “French” Canadians that are the anti-Semitic ones, generally speaking.

What did you expect from a “Feigele Trudeau” hope he gets booted out in the next election. Nachum the USA didn’t let them in either. My father tried both countries at the end Canada let him in.

Canadians could be one of the biggest mindless Jew hating anti-semites that I have ever met. I had a business partner that was Canadian who was a closet anti-semite boy that I learned that lesson the hard way.. Canada is a leftist lunatic Idol worshiping country that loves to lean to the left and do the exact opposite of what the rest of the world is doing so the Canadians taking the side of the enemy comes no surprise to me. Don’t forget their prime minister said that the citizens of Canada should leave their keys on their front door in order to avoid conflict with robbers.
