Toronto charity disputes CRA accusation it was formed to spread ‘Iranian revolutionary ideology in Canada’

Iran’s infiltration of Canada runs deep.

The Islamic Shia Assembly of Canada has operated in the Toronto area for more than two decades, attracting members of parliament to its events and once raising the flag at City Hall.

But documents obtained by Global News show that federal charity regulators have long had concerns about the group and what they claimed were its numerous links to Iran.

After auditing the charity, the Canada Revenue Agency alleged it was “acting as a facilitator organization to support the operational goals” of Iran’s Ahlul Bayt World Assembly (ABWA).


Glad to see something being done after all these years…

The 40th Anniversary of the Islamic Republic of Iran

Today, February 10, the Iranian regime officially celebrates the 40th anniversary of the day it seized power. The fundamentalist and Islamist party of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini surprised the international community and the Iranian people when in 1979, it hijacked a revolution. The successful power-grab sent waves through global politics.

Although some people were aware of the intentions of the Islamist party, many underestimated the extent of its organizational skills and power. To harness both the trust and the loyalty of the people, Ayatollah Khomeini and his followers initially portrayed themselves as spiritual people who had no desire to rule the country. Many, including several political parties, also believed that, during a transitional period, the ruling mullahs would relinquish any power gained.

Why Palestinians Oppose an Anti-Iran Coalition

The Palestinians have good reason to believe that some influential Arab countries have given up on both them and the Palestinian cause. They fear that several Arab countries might even be headed toward normalizing their relations with Israel.

For several weeks now, the leadership of the Palestinian Authority (PA) has been waging a campaign against a US-Polish conference that is scheduled to take place in Warsaw later this month. US and Polish officials said that the conference will include sessions on the situation in Syria, Yemen, missile development, terrorism and illicit finance and cybersecurity. A US official said that the conference will also discuss “Iran’s destructive policies in the region.”

Iranian women – before and after the Islamic Revolution

The Islamic Revolution of 1979 brought seismic changes to Iran, not least for women. One area that has come under scrutiny is the way women dress and wear their hair – the old Shah, in the 1930s, banned the veil and ordered police to forcibly remove headscarves. But in the early 1980s, the new Islamic authorities imposed a mandatory dress code that required all women to wear the hijab.

Radical Iran’s 40th Year: The Legacy of the Left

Democrats seem to have an enduring fancy for despotic, radical Islam. The more radical and anti-American the regime, the more they wish to support it. Of course, the poster child of leftist love for all things radical Islam is Iran.

Not that you’d know it from the mainstream media, but last week marked the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution. This utterly tragic foreign policy blunder turned a crucial Middle East U.S. ally and dominant regional power into a nation determined to make war against Israel (the “Little Satan”) and the United States (the “Great Satan”).

‘A silent act of resistance’: the hidden tattoo studios of Tehran

Mohammed’s tattoo studio is hidden in a back room behind a clothes shop in the poorer, southern part of Tehran. Photos of Al Pacino, Che Guevara and the Eiffel Tower adorn the walls. His customers often ask for classic tattoo motifs – a rose, for example, or a predatory animal – but Maori-style tribal patterns are also popular. “Tattooing is my passion,” he says. “I take the risk simply because it’s so beautiful.”

He certainly does take a risk. Tattoo artists are regularly arrested in Iran and sentenced to fines, lashes or even imprisonment. While there is no specific law against tattoos and they are not strictly forbidden in Shia Islam, the authorities strongly reject them as a western phenomenon harmful to Iranian values.

Released Iran journalist accuses US of discrimination

A journalist for Iranian state TV who was detained in the US for 10 days accused the country on Saturday of violence and discrimination against Muslims and black people.

US-born Muslim convert Marzieh Hashemi was arrested at St. Louis Lambert International Airport on January 13 under a law allowing authorities to detain people suspected of being potential witnesses in criminal cases.

Back in Tehran after being released, she said Saturday the “material witness law” has been “used systematically to target mostly Muslims in America for over two decades”.

Iran’s ‘Fast and Furious’ smugglers: Duelling with police at 200 kph

‘We fire up the engines and then we don’t stop’

We don’t travel alone. It’s safer to travel in a convoy, and you can carry more cargo. There are usually about eight or 10 cars. We use fake licence plates so the police can’t trace us.

There are rules: We fire up the engines and then we don’t stop. We never stop. We keep going until we reach our destination. Even if something happens to one of us, the others don’t stop.

He explained that uranium is mined in Yazd Province at the Saghand mines and that there are additional mines which have not been announced yet. He said that the plant in Ardakan can receive 84,000 tons of uranium ore and turn it into yellowcake, and that similar plants will be built elsewhere in the Yazd Province. He also said that Iran is ready to produce 300 tons of yellowcake per year for the next five or six years.

BREAKING: US Justice Department announces 13 criminal charges against Meng Wanzhou and Huawei

 

U.S. Formally Accuses Huawei Executive of Helping Evade Iran Sanctions

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department unveiled sweeping charges on Monday against the Chinese telecom firm Huawei, several subsidiaries and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, accusing the company of stealing trade secrets, obstructing justice and helping banks evade sanctions on Iran.

The pair of indictments shows the severity of the United States’ concerns about a Chinese telecom equipment maker the government has long suspected of working to advance Beijing’s global ambitions and undermine America’s interests.

The indictments claim that Huawei, its affiliate in Iran and Ms. Meng committed a host of crimes, including stealing trade secrets and obstruction of justice.

From Liberal Party Central at the CBC – U.S. announces 13 criminal charges against Huawei executives

The U.S. Department of Justice has announced 13 criminal charges against four executives from the Chinese telecom giant Huawei and its affiliate Skycom Tech.

Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who is currently free on bail in Vancouver as the U.S. seeks her extradition, is among those charged.

Acting U.S. attorney general Matthew Whitaker announced that a grand jury in New York had recommended the charges.

He alleged the 13 counts of bank and wire fraud relate to Huawei’s claim that its affiliate in Iran, Skycom, was a separate, unrelated company. As a result of that claim, it was able to borrow money from U.S. banks.

We should know soon whose side Justin was told to support.

‘Eat your flowers or get deported’: Abuse of Iran’s street vendor kids sparks outrage

A video showing two young boys being mistreated by a municipal worker has caused an uproar in Iran. The image is shocking: the man filming asks the boys to eat the flowers that they were selling in the street – or face deportation.

The 40-second video first appeared on social media in Iran on January 12. It has been spread on the popular messaging app Telegram as well as on Facebook and Twitter. The video shows the younger boy crying as the man behind the camera shouts: “Eat it all, hurry up, all of it! The stem too. Eat it, otherwise I will send you to the camp.” The other boy asks, “Can I not eat the plastic wrap?” The man answers, “No, you have to eat it all”

Iran ‘is impatient to fight Israel and eliminate it from the earth’: Threat after Israeli missile attack on Tehran forces in Syria leaves 11 dead

The head of Iran’s air force has warned his country is ‘impatient’ to fight Israel and ‘eliminate it from the Earth’ – after deadly Israeli missile attacks on Tehran forces in Syria.

Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh said young Iranian air force recruits are ‘fully ready… to confront the Zionist regime’.

The comments, on a state-linked website, came after Israel’s military said it had targeted Iranian installations near the Syrian capital Damascus early today, hours after intercepting a rocket fired from Syrian territory.
