Canadian Laurie Conn-Zuckerman, along with her husband and daughter, visited the lookout over the Syrian town of Quneitre earlier this week, she says, to see the threat posed to Israel every day.
"We live in a bit of a bubble in Toronto, and I think it's really important for everyone in the western world who cherishes our freedom to experience a little bit of what it's like to live every day in a country that you have to be on your toes all the time," she told me.
Conn-Zuckerman said she believes the threat from Islamist groups will only grow, adding that Canada should be doing more to stop the rise of these insurgents.
"I think if we had to send out troops in to fight for democracy, I would support that."
This statement fits nicely with the Israeli propaganda claim that somehow Israel is the FRONTLINE for Western democracy against Islamic extremism. Like much Zionist propaganda this is exactly the opposite of reality - the exact opposite of the trutrh. Not just a small lie, or a fudging of the truth, but a complete inversion of reality.
