Israel, Canada Cut from Same Cloth

The brick Ottawa built within the shaky wall of Zionism will remain forever as a black stain in the brief history of Canada.

(TEHRAN) - Canada’s abrupt move to sever all ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran manifestly springs from a strong Zionist sway which has permeated the political structure of the country.

Naturally, the Israelis were tremendously gladdened by this move which they saw as a ‘clarion call to action’. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the move with incredible promptitude as if he knew this act of servitude to the Zionist entity was sure to materialize and expressed hope that other countries would follow the example set by Ottawa.

"We have to build a wall, not of silence, but of condemnation and resolve. Canada just put a very big brick in that wall that is necessary for the peace of the world," he said.

The brick Ottawa built within the shaky wall of Zionism will remain forever as a black stain in the brief history of Canada.

Enumerating the reasons for expelling Iranian diplomats and closing its embassy in Tehran, Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird deceptively alluded to Iran as a “threat to global security” and to the country’s “hostility toward Israel”. To be exact, it is Israel which has recently ratcheted up its ‘bomb, bomb Iran’ rhetoric and has made odiously indefatigable efforts in marshalling up global support against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program.

Further to that, Baird has scratched open old wounds and has refrained from directly explaining the real reasons for such an impetuous action. He accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism, of “blatantly disregarding the Vienna Convention” and criticized it for its “failure to protect diplomatic personnel”, indirectly making reference to the students storming the British embassy in Tehran and the subsequent closure of British embassy in 2011.

Not surprisingly, a statement issued by Abraham H. Foxman, pro-Zionist ADL National Director, highly praised the move, “Canada's principled stand against the belligerent Iranian regime has set a new example of leadership, integrity and principle for the international community to emulate.”

It goes without saying that Canadian extremist Prime Minister Stephen Harper is the key to this entire anti-Iran move.

Known as the ‘Ugly Canadian’, Harper has been widely criticized for dancing to every tune of Israel and constantly throwing one-sided support behind the Zionist regime in the Palestinian issue.

In point of fact, both Stephen Harper and John Baird have time and again expressed their unconditional support for Israel.

"There is no better friend to Israel than Canada," Baird said in speech in January.

"We shall always be there for you, and in front of you."

In 2010, B’nai Brith’s Jewish Tribune reported on a Conservative MP’s speech to a major Christian Zionist event in Toronto. “Jeff Watson, Conservative MP for Essex, delivered greetings from Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The creation of the state of Israel fulfills God’s promise in Deuteronomy to gather the Jewish people from all corners of the world, he said.”

What further illuminates the rather dark side of this move is, to quote Stephen Harper, Iran’s support for ‘Assad’s regime’ in Syria. Mr. Harper’s paradoxical approach to the developments in the Middle East and North Africa has long been a matter of great controversy and widespread criticism. Basically, he has been a vocal critic of Islamic Awakening in the Middle East and North African regions while supporting the regimes of Bahrain and Saudi regimes in crushing popular uprisings.

His crowning mistake in foreign policy however includes the declaration of resistance groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah as "terrorist" groups, thereby cutting off financial aid to the besieged people of Gaza.

In 2011, Palestinian Authority asked the UN for recognizing a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem. Palestinians hoped that the elevated stature would give them more influence in future talks with Israel. However, Harper was among the first ones who voiced his opposition to Palestine’s bid for UN recognition, saying “We view this unilateral action on behalf of the Palestinian Authority to be not helpful, and we will be opposing it at the United Nations.”

Governed as a constitutional monarchy with British Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state, Canada can be but envisaged as a country supporting colonizing regimes such as Israel and seeking to isolate the peaceful nation of Iran.

Indeed, Canada is hitching its cart to dead horses by making Washington a model of emulation in its foreign policy. Cutting ties with Iran, pandering slavishly to the Zionist regime, ignoring the plight of the downtrodden Palestinians, supporting the despotic Arab regimes in the Middle East and many other things to boot constitute only a small portion of the twisted policies of Canada’s conservative government which will be faced with eventual isolation and left with domestic and foreign debts.

Dr. Salami examines the historical developments that impact national relations today, and the way western people view Iran. Salem-News.com has carried stories from Iranian writers for years and the critical politics have been and remain under our microscope of truth and fair play. This is essential in a world teetering on the brink of a third world war, over continual unfounded allegations of Iran's development of enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb.

The stark irony of the story is that Iran's primary accuser, Israel, is in possession of hundreds of nuclear weapons, the very type they accuse Iran of "plotting" to develop. In truth, Iran has almost no history of aggression toward the United States.

Misinformation shapes opinion, and a large percentage of Americans have never been provided accurate information about the history of Iran and the western powers and their eternal quests for cheap oil. They don't comprehend the fact that Iran was ruled by the west, by proxy, throughout the years of the Shah, and that this only ended with the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Johnson I am ashamed you are one as well.

Editor: Hey  Doctor Hicks, would you like extra hate for your genocide sandwich?

I understand your reason for wanting to skew to one side on this article - however, Dr. Salami, I come here to read NEWS, not extremist op-ed. There's good reasons why Canada left us here in Iran, and if you did a little research, you'd know they were so pissed to the point that they just got up and pulled out. I'm not going to do your homework for you, but if you want to consider yourself a "Doctor", I'd suggest the best prescription for you is research. A.M. Ph.D


Uhhhh yeah. September 13, 2012 11:23 am (Pacific time)

When did the Salem-News become an islamist rag. It's interesting how the finger gets pointed at Canada, yet which country has been propping Israel up for lo' these many decades hmmm?
Dr. Salami is a hack and the fact you wasted space to publish his dreck shows why you have to beg for donations on your site.

Tim King: He has more integrity than you could ever begin to understand.  We don't beg asshole, we ask for donations.  Truth and revenue are distinctly unrelated in this day and age thanks to hateful wankers like you.  Glad you can easily go to many other media sources.
