Baird Delivers Strong Pro-Israel Message at AIPAC Confab--But Is It TOO Strong for the Pusillanimous?

For an insidiously powerful Jooowish Lobby (the one Chuck Hagel warned you about), AIPAC has seemed in recent times to be more like a bunch of obsequious pushovers. It thus comes as no surprise that the strongest voice at their 2013 confab comes from a Canadian politician:
OTTAWA — Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird has told a powerful pro-Israel lobby that Palestinians will feel “consequences” from Canada if they pursue the Jewish state at the International Criminal Court. 
Baird issued the warning just as the federal government considers whether to end hundreds of millions of dollars in Canadian humanitarian aid to the Palestinians when it expires at the end of this month. 
Baird delivered his message to an approving audience Sunday in Washington at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee...
"Approving"? Unused as they are to hearing such strong words from the mouths of their beloved Democrats, I bet Baird's comments made more than a few of the attendees want to reach for their smelling salts.
