Canada needs to stand with brave Iranian activists

Winter is over (officially) and the first day of spring also marks the most important day in the Persian calendar, Nowruz, or Persian New Year.

Nowruz ushers in the start of a new year, filled with hope and optimism for the year ahead.

For Persians around the world, and especially those suffering under the cruel and heavy-handed regime in Iran, let us hope this Nowruz brings an end to the mullahs’ reign of terror.

Justin will be angry if we do!

    But what about poor Omar Khadr. He needs an apology from Canada.

    But things must be wonderful in Iran, because the CBC had that heart warming segment on the National, about the great fashion choices in bags over your head there. Wearing a bag over your head is a victory for feminism.

    Not a chance in hell with justin’s brah sacka running interference for the iranian theocratic regime.

    The Iranian Green Revolution asked Obama for support , but he ignored them to negotiate a deal with the hard liners. A deal they have no intention of keeping. But at least Iran got the plane loads of cash from the US to fund more terrorism.

      Israel keeps melting obama’s gifts to the iranians in convoys on syrian highways.

    “Persians?” Bah humbug! Iran is a cesspit and it will be that way until islam is eradicated. You don’t change that fact by claiming to be “Persian” instead of just plain Iranian. Get real.

    Iranians call themselves Persians because they are ashamed of admitting they are Iranians.

  • We didn’t stand by Zehra Kazemi.

    Let Canada (we are talking about politicians here) first stand with and for Canadians before getting involved in other countries. At present Canadians are being ignored and even pushed under the bus.
