Mohammadi´s message drew the attention of U.S. terrorist experts, who
noted that Canadians do not need visas to cross the border into the
Iran is expanding a "fifth column" in Canada. This warning,
articulated by David Harris, former head of operations for the
Canadian Intelligence Service and now a strategic intelligence
expert, highlights some disturbing facts: many expatriates have been
warning of the threat of Iranian diplomats conspiring in Canada; of
the stealth workings of the Hezbollah terrorist organization, and
there is evidence of Iranian infiltration in the school system.
Recent evidence bears out Harris´s warning, as does the news that
Iran is using its embassy in Canada to mobilize loyalists of the
Islamic Republic to infiltrate the Canadian Government and attack the
The Toronto District school Board recently suspended the operating
permit of an Islamic school that had been using teaching materials to
encourage boys to keep fit for jihad and for disparaging Jews. Upon
being exposed, the Islamic Shia Study Centre, which operated the East
End Madrassah out of a Toronto high school, issued a public
statement: " Our curriculum is not intended to promote hatred towards
any individual or group of people; rather, the children are taught to
respect and value other faiths and beliefs, and to uphold Canada´s
basic values of decency and tolerance".
The school curriculum, however, referred to Jews as being: "crafty"
and "treacherous," with "plots" and "conspiracies," while contrasting
Islam to "the Jews and the Nazis." These passages came from two books
published by Iranian foundations, which also taught children
about "unclean things," including pigs, dogs and "a person who does
not believe in Allah."
So here one can see plainly the covert nature of how the
Iranian "Fifth Column" manipulates diversity, multiculturalism,
tolerance and even decency in a feeble attempt to cover up its agenda.
The York Region Police hate crimes unit launched an investigation,
based on a complaint from Friends of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre.
The cleric affiliated with the Islamic Shia Study Centre, Imam
Moulana Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi, tried to cover up the now-public
scandal by stating that the passages were wrongly copied from two
websites; however further investigation revealed that the passages
were excerpts from two books published by the Al Balagh Foundation in
Tehran, as well as by the Mostazafan Foundation of New York, which
the FBI indicated was a front organization controlled by the Iranian
regime, currently the leading sponsor of worldwide terrorism, and the
president of which, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, is not only outspokenly anti-
West, but prominently threatens to wipe Israel off the map.
This material understandably alarmed Jewish groups, who responded
that they were dismayed that such material had made its way into the
Toronto District School Board. Such textbooks have also made their
way into the Ottawa Carlton Public School Board, where Iranian hate
literature glorifies a 13-year old child soldier who, under an Iraqi
tank during the Iran-Iraq war, strapped on a grenade and blew himself
up. In addition, it depicts Jews as the "sons of Apes."
Moulana Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi, the Imam affiliated with the Toronto
Madrasah, is also the Imam of the Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat of
Toronto; he recently participated at Carleton University in Ottawa.
as a speaker in the 2012 Imam Khomeini Conference, entitled, "The
Contemporary Awakening and Imam Khomeini´s Thoughts."
Although presented as an Iranian cultural event, Carleton drew a
sharp letter of rebuke from ten Iranian-Canadian academics for
hosting a conference honoring the "founding dictator of the Islamic
Republic of Iran." The signatories of the letter pointed out that
Khomeini had ordered in a fatwa the mass execution of thousands of
political prisoners in 1988; that he had shut down Iranian
Universities for two years, and that he had ordered the imprisonment,
torture and the execution of dissidents.
The pro-Khomeini conference was jointly organized by the Iranian
embassy in Ottawa and the student group, the Iranian Cultural
Association of Carleton University, headed by Ehsan Mohammadi, the
son of Hamid Mohammadi, the cultural counselor at the Iranian embassy
An alarming article just released by Fox News revealed that Iran is
using its embassy in Canada to mobilize Islamic Republic loyalists to
infiltrate the Canadian Government and attack the United States, as
can be seen in a chilling interview with Hamid Mohammadi and shown on
an Iran-based website. In his interview, Mohammadi speaks of Iran´s
plan to win the hearts and minds of Iranians living in Canada. He
projects that by 2031, the total immigrant population of Canada will
grow by 64%, and that, due to their birthrate, the number of Iranians
should substantially increase.
His message drew the attention of U.S. terrorist experts, who noted
that Canadians do not need visas to cross the border into the U.S..
Mohammadi also urged all Iranian-Canadians to "resist being melted
into the dominant Canadian culture," to aspire to "occupy high-level
key positions," and to "be of service to our beloved Iran."
The Iranian Embassy in Canada, under its "education advisory"
section, had also planned on sponsoring a three-day Iranian Students
Convention in Cornwall, Ontario, from July 13th-15th; following more
pressure from Iranian-Canadian academics, the conference has now
A tight, organized network of Iranian terrorists seems to be using
elementary schools, universities and government institutions -- not
to mention manipulating the multicultural system -- to promote its
messages of propaganda and hate, apparently with the ultimate goal of
conquering the "infidel." According to Shabnam Assadollahi, an
Iranian-Canadian and anti-Iranian Regime activist, who helped
translate the Mohammadi interview, "Multiculturalism is killing
Canada. I am sick and tired of political correctness in this country."
The good news is, this group has been identified by watchful eyes of
its freedom-loving Iranian-Canadians and the diligence of security
The bad news is that there is a level of brazenness and
sophistication from a terrorist regime that has the monetary backing
and an apparent wish to hijack our institutions. Once such materials
become discovered on elementary school premises, it is easily dealt
with; the greatest threat remains on our campuses and in government
institutions, which would do well to become more aware that
multiculturalism and tolerance require a plan of implementation if we
are to preserve our democracy.
