Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper released a statement Sunday reiterating his support for the State of Israel, and showing solidarity with the Jewish people on a day as sentimental as Holocaust Remembrance Day.
"On Yom HaShoah, Canadians stand together to remember the countless innocent people, including nearly six million Jewish men, women and children who suffered," Harper announced.
He asked the Canadian people to renew their commitment to the "fight against all forms of intolerance," including anti-Semitism.
“The atrocities of the Holocaust betrayed the fundamental value of human dignity. We must never allow such unthinkable crimes to be forgotten or repeated.”
