Canada’s abrupt move to sever all ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran manifestly springs from a strong Zionist sway which has permeated the political structure of the country.” Political analyst Ismail SalamiA political analyst has slammed Canada’s recent move to cut relations with Iran as a stain on the short Canadian history which unveils Ottawa’s submissive stance towards the Zionism sway. “Canada’s abrupt move to sever all ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran manifestly springs from a strong Zionist sway which has permeated the political structure of the country,” wrote pominent political analyst Ismail Salami in an article at Press TV website. The analyst alluded to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s rejoicing over Ottawa’s decision to sever Iran ties and his appreciation of the move as “a very big brick” in the wall against Iran. “The brick Ottawa built within the shaky wall of Zionism will remain forever as a black stain in the brief history of Canada,” Salami pointed out. On Friday, Ottawa closed its embassy in Tehran and ordered the Iranian diplomats in Canada to leave the country within five days. The Canadian government has also frozen the bank accounts of many Iranian nationals living in Canada and banned money transfers to Iran.
“Governed as a constitutional monarchy with British Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state, Canada can be but envisaged as a country supporting colonizing regimes such as Israel and seeking to isolate the peaceful nation of Iran,” Salami noted.The analyst lashed out at the conservative government of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for “hitching its cart to dead horses by making Washington a model of emulation in its foreign policy.” The author went on to enumerate some of Ottawa’s “twisted policies,” including “cutting ties with Iran, pandering slavishly to the Zionist regime, ignoring the plight of the downtrodden Palestinians, and supporting the despotic Arab regimes in the Middle East.” Salami warned the Canadian government against the ramifications of such antagonistic policies, saying the strategy will ultimately lead to isolation of Canada and saddle the country with more domestic and foreign debt.
