Canadian House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, the man who shot and killed the Parliament Hill shooter last month, was honored by the Israeli Knesset today and had a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Vickers had been scheduled to be in Israel for a security meeting long before his heroic act.
Netanyahu said during Vickers’ visit, “This terror attack in Ottawa proves, once again, that Islamic radical terrorism has no limits and respects no borders. Israel and Canada stand side-by-side in the international effort to eliminate terrorism.”
For his part, Vickers deflected the praise stating that stopping Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was “a real team effort.”
It may very well have been a team effort, but Vickers was its captain.
