‘Trudeau: Iran’s Useful Idiot?’

“Iran and its Islamist regime is currently making a major effort to expand its footprint in Canada. Their aim is to use American’s northern neighbour as a “forward operating base” for influence operations against the American government…

“…Iranian diplomat Hamid Mohammadi said in 2012 there were many Iranian-Canadians

“working in influential government positions”

and called on others to

“occupy high-level and key positions.”…

“Iran has been forced to recalibrate its efforts during the past decade due to the shifting views of Canadian and American governments. The Obama Administration (2009-2017) gave virtual free rein to Iranian agents of influence. They were supported by a variety of Administration insiders such as Valerie Jarrett. When the Iranian Navy seized ten US Navy sailors and photographed them in humiliating positions, Vice President Joseph Biden described this as “just standard nautical practice”. Predictably, Iran forced a US Navy female sailor to wear a hijab , possibly as a way of showing male dominance over an American female.

“The government of Canada had earlier allowed Iranian agents such as Faisal Larijani to build infrastructure and support. This included the ‘Center for Iranian Studies’, located in Toronto at 290 Sheppard Ave. W., which was incorporated in January, 2008.

“When Prime Minister Harper (2006-2015) was elected, governmental support for Iran quickly dropped, culminating in the shuttering of the Iranian Embassy in 2012, using, as the leverage to remove them, the newly-enacted “Justice for the Victims of Terrorism Act”.

“The current situation has now reversed itself. The newly-elected Trump Administration appears to be taking a much harder stand against Iran, while Canadian Prime Minster Trudeau is committed to outreach to Iran and a possible re-opening of the Canadian and Iranian Embassies.

“Iran remains listed as one of three global state sponsors of terrorism, along with Syria and Sudan, according to the US State Department. Canada also lists the ‘Qods Force’ as a terrorism entity and states that it

“is the clandestine branch of Iran’s ‘Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) responsible for extraterritorial operations, and for exporting the Iranian Revolution through activities such as facilitating terrorist operations.”

“In addition, Iran also has one of the most dismal human rights records of any country. ‘Human Rights Watch’ and others say that the human rights situation in Iran is “dire”. Under the rule of the Ayatollahs, Iranian women confront serious discrimination on issues such as marriage, divorce, and child custody. Women have been sent to jail for publicly speaking out in favor of equal rights for women.

“According to Canada’s former Foreign Minister Stephan Dion (2015-2016), official talks with Iran on re-establishing diplomatic ties have already begun. This is not a surprise; Prime Minister Trudeau campaigned on the issue of doing just that. Some Canadian sanctions against Iran have already been lifted, as of February, 2016. Canada also downgraded its warning against all travel to Iran — despite ongoing arrests and the torture of a variety of Canadians and others.

“Trudeau’s interest in re-establishing ties with Iran is not new. In 2014, while a Member of Parliament, Justin Trudeau gave an interview to the Montreal-based newspaper ‘Sada al-Mashrek’. This paper is openly known to be Khomeinist in nature and supports Iran (as well as ‘Hezbollah’). That Trudeau would speak to such a paper in the year before an election suggests he was already reaching out to Iranian regime support in Canada. During this interview, Trudeau also told the paper that he would have a special immigration program that was more open to

“Muslims and Arabs”…

“Liberal Member of Parliament Majid Jowhari hosted a delegation of three members of Iran’s parliament in his home… While Joseph Pickerill, a spokesperson for then Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion, said that the delegation was not an official visit, such a highly-unusual meeting raised eyebrows…

“Imam Rizvi, of the ‘Jaffari Mosque’ in Thornhill, Ontario, is one of the leading proponents of the Iranian/Khomeinist ideology in Canada. He speaks to support the government of Iran and believes that the Khomeinist interpretation of Shia Islam is to take precedence over all matters. At a 2012 Carleton University conference, he stated:

“Khomeini had proved that Islam is not just a religion of prayers and personal laws that only deals with matters of divorce and inheritance, rather it is a complete code of life that can govern all aspects of society — spiritual, material, as well as personal, social, economic and political aspects.”

“The conference had been run to celebrate the anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Khomeini and was titled “The Contemporary Awakening and Imam Khomeini’s Thoughts.”

“Consistent with his Khomeinist masters, Imam Rizvi also believes and advocates that sex with 9-year-old girls is acceptable, as long as it occurs within ‘munqati’ (temporary) or ‘da’im’ (permanent) marriage. His book on “Marriage and Morals in Islam” also says that girls/women can be entered into temporary marriages, apparently from the age of nine and upwards. In the eyes of many, ‘temporary marriage’ or ‘muta’ is another word for prostitution. These muta marriages may be occurring now at the Jaffari Mosque.

“One of three schools run by the mysteriously well-funded Jaffari Mosque was also shut down during a 2012 hate crimes investigation. The teaching materials used by the mosque were from Iran (the ‘Al Balagh Foundation’) and from the ‘Mostazafan Foundation’ of New York, which is identified as an arm of the Iranian government. Among its teachings, the mosque’s school suggested that boys should play sports so they can be

“physically be ready for jihad whenever the time comes for it.”

“Girls, on the other hand, were told that they should

“stick to hobbies that prepare them to become wives and mothers”…

“Iran shows every sign of doing a “full court press” on Canada to increase its footprint in Canada and provide it a forward operating base on the border of the USA. The Trudeau government, for its part, has shown both a past and present affinity for dictatorial governments. Trudeau himself says he admires the Government of the Peoples Republic of China and their “basic dictatorship”. He publicly mourned the passing of Cuban President Fidel Castro in an official government statement describing him as “larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century”. He also stated that the Cuban people had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”. The statement made no note of the 60-plus years of dictatorship, Cuba’s brutal suppression of human rights nor its systemic persecution of gays.

“Trudeau’s brother and political advisor is Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau. Sacha Trudeau and the Iranian state-owned ‘PressTV’ co-produced a fawning documentary entitled, “The New Great Game”, which stated that Iran’s nuclear program is for “defensive” purposes only, serving as an effective “deterrent” against Israeli “aggression” and belligerence. In an earlier documentary (“The Fence”), Sacha Trudeau profiled Zakaria Zubeidi, then leader of the terrorist group’ Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades’, portraying him as a Robin Hood-like “leader of the resistance”.

“Given the history of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and based on his time in office to date, it appears likely that Iran will increase its influence activities in Canada, a dangerous development for the USA as it moves to confront Iran.”

–‘Iran’s Forward Operating Base against the U.S.’,
Thomas Quiggin, Gatestone Institute, May 4, 2017


“There are some 300,000 people in Canada who came from Iran, many of them on the run from this despotic and cruel theocracy. Others merely immigrated to get to a better place where life is freer and the economy isn’t run with stunning corruption and incompetence.

“There are Iranian critics of the regime – many of them outspoken and courageous women who have found their voice in Canada. Many of these Iranians might also be considered as ‘ex-Muslims’, having seen the perfection of Islamic rule for themselves and since deciding to have nothing more to do with it.

“However, with so many Iranians in Canada, it should be no surprise that the partisans of their government are here, too.

“In the long years since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, we have been given many reminders of the respect and courtesy Iran has for diplomatic conventions. Foreign embassy staff do make for convenient hostages, while their own embassies have hosted assassination teams, supported terrorism, and have barely bothered to conceal their espionage efforts or the attempted intimidation of expatriates.

“Even closing down Iran’s embassy in Canada – for the second time –was no bar to the sub-rosa activities of Iran’s agents (this writer having first-hand experience of the subject).

“Nazi Germany used the ‘German Bund’ as a front group to advance its interests and influences in places where their diplomats might not be welcome. The Soviets really ran away with the concept of front organizations – generating dozens during the Cold War alone. Iran is a totalitarian regime and one might well wonder about the role of the ‘Iranian Canadian Congress’ (ICC).

“The ICC claims to represent the hundreds of thousands of Canadian Iranians – although it is a mystery how this authority is derived; but then self-aggrandizing claims from small groups are nothing new. What is more mysterious is the strong degree of coincidence between the ICC and Iranian national interests.

“The ICC claims it is a non-partisan and non-religious organization (impossible to see how that could be), and is working to improve Canadian-Iranian relations. In short, we should restore diplomatic relations, open banking ties, and assent to Iranian moves in the name of ‘peace’. Uh huh….

“Shouldn’t the ICC actually register itself as a lobby group then, and stop blustering with law-suit threats at critics of the Iranian regime? Actually, in our collective experience with Salafist/Wahhabi ‘law-fare’ it was strange to see how many lawsuits vanished once the Discovery Stage was reached and defendants could start raking through the financial and corporate records of the plaintiff. One wonders if the ICC would be just as shy?

“Oh, and let us not forget that Iran still owes Canada a strict accounting for the brutal rape and murder of Zahra Kazemi in 2003 in an Iranian prison; not to forget the abuse of other Canadian citizens. Iranians are the heirs of an ancient civilization but their government is a barbaric one in every sense of the word. But if the ICC would like to defend Iran… please go ahead.”
