The pic shows Jason Kenney visiting the Jaffari Community Centre, it was sent to me by a concerned citizen. Kenney has walked out on ethnic community groups in the past when he felt they were attempting to exploit him to further a sordid political agenda. He should have done the same in this instance as well.
I find it hard to believe that Kenney could not have been aware of the Jaffari Centre’s direct links to Iran’s Khomeinist regime. The Jaffari Centre is run by the ISIJ, The Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat. The ISIJ Maulana, Seyed Mohammad Rizvi, is one the founders of the Ahlul Bayt Assembly of Canada. The Ahlul Bayt Assembly takes it’s orders directly from Tehran, as detailed in this Memri.org report, its purpose is to spread Khomeinist propaganda in Canada.
When not extolling the virtues of the Ayatollah Khomeini, Maulana Rizvi of the ISIJ has also taken time to introduce Canadian society to such quaint Shia customs as marriage for 9 year old girls and the death penalty for apostates.
Jason Kenney has a difficult job, it’s one he has done mostly well, his visit to Iran’s outpost in Canada was clearly an act of poor judgment. Let him know on Twitter.
