Envoy's call to Iranians in Canada raises fear of terror recruitment
Published July 09, 2012
UNITED NATIONS The prospect of Iran using its embassy in Canada to mobilize Islamic Republic loyalists to attack the U.S. is raising alarm among terrorism experts after an official there issued a call to arms for expatriates to infiltrate the Canadian government and be ready to advance the interests of their homeland.
Details of the Iranian recruitment program came to light in a chilling interview Hamid Mohammadi, the Iranian cultural affairs counselor at the embassy in Ottawa, gave in Farsi to an Iran-based website directed exclusively at Iranians living in Canada. In addition to raising alarms in Canada, Mohammadi's message got the attention of U.S. terror watchdogs, who noted that radicalized Iranians would be just an easy border crossing from the American heartland, since Canadian citizens do not need a visa and typically face just a few questions from U.S. border officials.
Mohammadi said recent immigrants among the estimated 500,000 Iranians in Canada have preserved their strong attachments and bonds to their homeland, while second-generation Iranians are already in influential government positions. He urged all Iranian-Canadians to resist being melted into the dominant Canadian culture to aspire to occupy high-level key positions and said the embassy plans to extend its reach by offering cultural programs to Iranian immigrants and their descendants, who can then be of service to our beloved Iran.

The one silver lining is that I have more confidence in the Canadian government dealing effectively with this than the Obama regime.
Why would Iranian-Canadians want to assimilate in to Canadian culture when they can see the wonders that Iranian culture has done in Iran?
...And Mr.Hamid Mohammadi has not been invited to leave the country????????
WWW3 is at the doorstep.
The Iranians already have Valerie Jarrett in the United States.
Iranians that were educated by the Chicago mob are the most dangerous of all....
I agree. I worry about Jarrett knowing secrets of the USA. I worry even more about Jarrett leaving the White House. There won’t be anybody watching her.
