Seems to me that here we have some hearsay that raises a number of troubling questions including the very peculiar alleged remark about "closing shop and going home." Fact is that Israel's Jew are already in their aboriginal homeland where at least some Jews have lived in each and every year since the ethnogenesis of the Jewish People some 26 centuries ago. Did Pardo really make that strange remark which is very damaging? And, by the way, may I ask if the officials present had been asked to keep the meeting's proceedings confidential? Was there a legal requirement to keep the discussion secret? I am a former Canadian public servant (Foreign Affairs and Privy Council Office). In that context, I understood perfectly the confidentiality requirements that governed the Public Service of Canada. "Loose lips sink ships," they used to say in World War Two.
