No Stephen,

You haven't got bruises for your pro-Israel stance.

Stephen Harper says Canada will stand against "anti-Israel rhetoric" at international organizations like the United Nations as long as he is prime minister — "whatever the cost."  The prime minister, speaking Monday at the start of an annual conference on combating anti-Semitism in Ottawa, said he's "got bruises to show" for speaking out in the international community against enemies of Israel.
Although he did not give specifics, Harper was likely referring to Canada's failed bid for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council last month. He also insisted there are "a lot more votes" in being anti-Israel than in "taking a stand."

You haven't got a pro-Israel stance to bruise. You have a very specific pro-right wing Israeli stance and you're wearing it like a badge of honour. It hasn't damaged your ego, it has inflated it.

Omar Khadr, Maher Arar, Abousfian Abdelrazik on the other hand have all suffered real physical bruises from your pro-Israeli right stance. The deposed civil servants at Rights and Democracy have figurative ones. Major Hess-Von Kruedner lost his life  to an Israeli bomb in an Israeli war you supported whilst he was representing that global institution you now pride yourself taking a hit from. Are you willing to sacrifice Canadian lives for your personal politics? Those protestors at the G8/20 who advocated for Palestinians suffered bruises from your riot cops.

The only people suffering actual bruises are those who disagree with your very personal set of politics. What was that thing McFadden mentioned about Canadian politicians under foreign influence?

It would be so much easier if he just admitted his Christian Zionist beliefs and that of the Evangelical Cons are pushing the foreign policy of this country.

The bruises are only on his knees and, yes, he wears them as his badge of honour. Wouldn't it be nice if some supreme being would just Rapture these guys the hell out of here?

When you have as large a sense of entitlement as our friend Stephen does, any slight upset to your world order leaves a mark. This is why he works so hard to control all aspects of government, he bruises so easily. I would say he is showing as much zeal as Lenin did during his hostile take over of Russia, but sadly I see a Ceaucescau type of madness in his eyes. I wonder when we will consider putting actual physical bruises on his fragile frame.
