VLADIVOSTOK, Russia Having just sent Irans diplomats packing and having brought its own diplomats home from Iran last week, Canada will keep trying to aid Canadian citizens there including three on death-row with the help of its partners and allies, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday.
The current government of Canada under the leadership of Mr. Stephen Harper is known for extreme policies in the domain of foreign policy, the Mehr news agency quoted Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying.
The hostile behaviour of the current racist government in Canada in reality follows the policies dictated by the Zionists (Israel) and the British.

I wasn’t aware that “Iranian” was a race.
It was the jews, of course. /s
How do you say “Enjoy your new glowing-glass parking lot” in Farsi?
"Hey! That's my line." Obama
The lexicon of despotic bullies is universal.
The way that the word racist is thrown about you’d be a racist if you prefer chocolate ice cream over vanilla. If a piano player is called a pianist then a race car driver should be called a racist?
WOW! They have learned WELL from the Democrats!
“racist government in Canada”
And Canucks are some of the whitest people I’ve ever seen! (Some of them are practically translucent.)
What, I say what in the Sam hill is goin’ on here? Some kind of deviltry by the Great Satan would be my guess.
No, I mean Iranian being a race separate and unto itself.
If anything, Canada is being nationalist. It’s only racism if you are discriminating against a particular race and last I heard, “Iranian” was not a race.
Iranians would beg to differ:
And they would be wrong.
They also believe (it’s been posted by Iranians on this forum before) that the Greco-Persian wars were wars of liberation and that the Greeks were savages needing to be civilized.
Yeah, not so much.
We’ve been talking past each other. We’re actually both saying the same thing — there is no racial issue here.
“If a piano player is called a pianist then a race car driver should be called a racist?”
That ...is about the funniest thing I’ve heard in a long, long time. Thank you. You made my day.
Glad to oblige ....
Thanks Squawk 8888.

I wasnt aware that Iranian was a race.
Ayrian, that's why they changed their name from Persia in the 1930s, after several millenia.
Europeans are not “Aryans” unless you wanna go by Hitler’s definition of Aryan, which is very different to the Iranian one.
Iranian is a nationality, with many Iranic races falling into that broad nationality. Iranic relates to both race and ethnic/native language/dialects spoken by Kurds, Persians, Balouchis, those from northern provinces of Iran around the Caspian Sea, and many others ethnic grps in Iran.
Btw, Arabs who mostly hate the existence of Israel as a nation state, the middle-eastern Jews and Israelis are also Semites!
Though I agree that today’s world is very much twisted.
That’s fascinating! Do you have a FR link to that specific statement?
It is true that Greeks were at the time not very advanced in certain disciplines such as mathematics. For example, they were still using alphabets for numbers, unlike Babylonians who had discovered 0 ... and am not talking about 0bama ;-)
Semites being a language rather than race based definition. More Amharic and Tigrinya semites in the world than Hebrews, though Arabs win the prize.
Thanks, didn’t realize that.
So, semitic as in Arabic is not the same as semitic in Hebrew, as in race, only in languages?
It’s now used more as a racial description, however the term originated in the 18th century pertaining to languages of the region, ranging from Syria to Ethiopia. There are certainly racial similarities given the fact that you’re looking at a relatively small area, though Ethopian speakers of the two languages I cited as more widely used than Hebrew look quite different than Israelis. And Arabs would probably disown them both.
That’s really interesting, more complex than I thought.
Although as you say, given the proximity & small area, not surprised by the mixture & due to conquests over the centuries.
I would’ve classified Ethopians originally as Black-Africans than Arabs or Hebrew. Certainly, there would be differences in features regardless of skin color (pigmentation).

There are more, but given that thread you can probably find the rest of them.
