Canada closes embassy in Iran, expels Iranian diplomats

Views Iran "the most significant threat to global peace and security"

CBC: Canada has suspended diplomatic relations with Iran and is expelling Iranian diplomats from Canada, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird announced in a statement today. "Canada has closed its embassy in Iran, effective immediately, and declared personae non gratae all remaining Iranian diplomats in Canada," Baird said in a statement. Those diplomats must leave within five days. "Canada’s position on the regime in Iran is well known. Canada views the Government of Iran as the most significant threat to global peace and security in the world today."

The statement cited Iran's support for the Assad regime in Syria and failure to comply with UN resolutions on its nuclear program, and its threats against Israel. The statement also makes reference to Iran's "blatant disregard" of the Vienna Convention that guarantees the protection of diplomatic personnel >>>

Your secret obsession with Netanyahu is amusing to say the least, but what about Afshin Jam?

As the commercial says, "Don't hate her because she is beautiful!"

Does what Obama, Netanyahu and the Lobby tell him to do. That the government of one of the most hated prime ministers in Canada has closed down the IRI's embassy in Ottawa is only indication that in foreign affairs the Canadian government merely does what the United States tells it to do. Let Fred and the Lobby celebrate. This is not much of a victory.



Thank you Soussan khanom

You got the point!

As bavafa said, they did it for the wrong reason.

And also, they will never give back Khavari to IRI.

This has nothing to do with the human rights issue as much as

It has to do with BiBi Yaboo...I  am not happy with this but good for those who are.  

Fred, go and celebrate it with Nazanin tonight .. get wild and crazy together.  You both deserve it  ..



Global Traumatism!

by Demo on

For a 'global village' where Modana is a peace activist, Nazanin Afshin Jam is causing an embassy closure, and Nazanin Bonyadi is an Inenational Amnesty's voice no news are causing traumatization no more as the world seems to be fast moving forward to a 'global whorehouse!' Oh, my dear!




This will not be Forgotten, Bravo Canada

Mr. Obama

The iranian people stand with you and behind you and well...that is not the point here.

Your Fellow Iranians WANT YOU TO KNOW, That We diagree with the "take two tax cuts...roll back some regulations...call me in the morning" solution that your OPPONENTS offer! No sir we do not. 

What we , as a nation is trying to say, is that YES, you killed Osama, YES, you save GM and as joee said OSAMA Is dead And GM is alive...(so now them employees can buy the cars they make themsleves blah blah). The canadians have cut ties with us, The TIME IS NOW, to continue on the path to change...TO convert ALL iranian citizens to AMERICAN ONES and TO establish a VISA office in IRAN. 

Mr. Obama. As Eva Longoria mentioned, We the filty rich iranians, NEED NO MORE TAX CUTS! 

We Want you to keep your promise and make IRAN THE 51st STATES OF THE UNION... GOD BLESS YOU and GOD BLESS CANADA...oops i meant THESE UNITED STATES...Thank you and Good night!

This is the greatest news for the past few months.  As Fred said, other countries must do the same.

Bravo Nazanin, the most charming woman!


Best alternative to war!

by Arj on

This indeed is the best move a foreign country could ever make to help Iranian people and their quest for freedom and democracy.

If only other countries (e.g. European union, Japan, Brazil...) followed suit and severed all diplomatic ties with the Islamic regime ruling Iran, there would be no need for a war or any military confrontation! 


Good job Canada

There were talks of closing that spy den in Ottawa for a while. The most interesting cited reason that I found is this one:

"Worst violators of human rights" as reported here:


Watch Dollar go even higher tomorrow in Iran as banks open for business.

یزدان را سپاس که به دعاهای ما جواب داد و عاملی شد تا این مرکزِ فساد در کشورِ کانادا بسته شود.وقتش بود که این اسلامیست‌ها گورشان را از کشورِ عالیه کانادا گم کنند،خبر رسیده که چوب به کمرِ وابستگان اسلامیون در تورنتو،مونترال نیز خورده شده و این عواملِ حرامیون و دزدِ بیت المال باید این سرزمینِ زیبا را ترک کنند و به درک روند.

این خبرِ خوب را به دوستان،هم میهنانِ گرامی‌ و به تمامی آزادیخواهانِ بزرگ مقام تبریک می‌گوییم،این سرآغازِ آزادی ایران زمین از زیرِ سلطه ضحاکیونِ اسلامی است.

از مقاماتِ بزرگوارِ کشورِ کانادا نیز تشکر کرده و امیدواریم که سیاسیونِ فرانسه،آلمان،هلند،سوئد،دانمارک،استرالیا نیز از این عالیجنابان درس گیرند و تمامی فساد خانه‌های اسلامیونِ نا ایرانی را در کشورهایشان ببندند و نوکرانِ وابسته به این رژیمِ سّفاک را اخراج کنند.

امروز ... روزِ قشنگی‌ است.


با توسری بیرونشون کنین!



Great job Ms. Afshin Jam, the pride of Iranian nation.


It is sad to see a good action...

by Bavafa on

But all for the wrong reason.

IRI human rights violation has been going on in Iran for nearly 33 years and not any sanctions as a result of that, yet IRI gets sanctioned for what the West and TMOI (The Messianic Occupying Israel) does it every day of the year.


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory

Necessary, but not enough..........it should be followed by cutting the diplomatic relations with the filthy savage Zionist regime...........


Thank you Canada

Great News. Thank you Canada.

Now the other sane world countries must do the same.
