Stephen Harper becomes the first sitting Canadian Prime Minister to address the Knesset. He lays out Canada’s longtime political connections to Israel and recalls the thriving history of the country’s Jewish population, further acknowledging the “terrible mistakes” of the Canadian government in the 1930s in refusing to accept European Jewish refugees of the Third Reich. Two days later Canada signs a strategic partnership agreement with Israel. (source)
