Canada-Iran relations soured in 2003, with the rape and murder of Canadian-Iranian journalist Zahra Kazemi in Iran’s infamous Evin Prison. Since then, Canada has been advancing a proposal for condemning Iran in the U.N. for human rights violations.

Apparently, one of Canada’s motives for unilaterally cutting off relations with Iran was a July 2012 interview given by the cultural affairs attaché at the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa, Hamid Mohammadi, to the Iran-based website for Iranian expatriates in Canada, Iranians Residing Abroad. In the interview, he urged Iranian-Canadians to “occupy high-level key positions” and “resist being melted into the dominant Canadian culture.” … Along with religious activity, the Iranian cultural attaché in Canada conducted distinctly political activity, spreading the revolutionary, anti-West and anti-Zionist agenda of the Iranian regime. …

Well, they do have the Tories in power right now. At least there is some conservatism left in ’em.

Canada seems awfully xenophobic. Why would they think that a bunch of Islamic radicals (i.e., Iranians) could EVER mean them any harm?

Dear Canada,

Please consider invading us in a couple of years.

By then we’ll have no military. You obviously have grownups in your government. We have immature dorks.

We promise to eliminate all Obamaloon supporters so that you won’t have to worry about IQ problems.
