FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor.

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor.

 

Canada closes down the Iranian Embassy in Ottawa on September 7, 2012.  Foreign Minister John Baird has ordered all Iranian diplomats in Canada to leave within five days.

Homa Arjomand stated, “most certainly what this action has done is to put additional pressure on the Iranian  regime for its involvement in nuclear activities, for being a long term enemy of Israel and sustaining the conflict in the Middle East, for taking side in the Syrian conflict by supporting Bashar Assad, for expanding its terrorist activities through its embassy, and most importantly, for realizing that the Iranian regime operates widely in Canada by expanding its ‘ fifth Column’  in Canada.” Arjomand proclaimed that Iran furthers its goals through activities of some Iranian businessmen, bursary students, lobbyists and paid agents.  The regime has penetrated the justice system and other public sectors in Canada” She stated that, “Another crucial element for closing the Iranian Embassy in Canada was the pressure by regime’s oppositions and prominent Iranian women’s groups  who have always been strongly opposed to the Islamic regime.  For three decades these groups have consistently informed the Canadian government of the heinous crimes against women, workers, youth, students, and in general the people of  Iran.

Homa Arjomand expressed, “that for the people of Iran and Iranians who migrated to Canada, this action is only the beginning of a great movement to end the present of Islamic regime in Canada and worldwide”.

Concerned citizens around the world must reject Gud’s Day,

and denounce the Islamic Republic of Iran and its associates

August 9th, 2012

 

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor.

A permit to hold God’s Day rally has been granted to Islamists at Queens Park on August 18th 2012.

Homa Arjomand, the Coordinator of the International Campaign to Close Down Iranian Embassies claims, “Gud’s Day is another day for the Islamic Republic of Iran and its associates Hezebollah and Hamas to organize globally to sustain terrorism”.  “Concerned citizens around the world must reject Gud’s Day, and denounce the Islamic Republic of Iran and its associates”. “She stated that “Gud’s Day originated with Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. He called for an international hate rally on the last Friday of Ramadan in support of the People of Palestine against Israel and the USA. Unfortunately in Toronto, under the concept of freedom of religion, the organizers of this hate crime were granted a permit to run another hate rally at Queens Park on August 18, 2012.”

Homa Arjomand further stated, “everyone is aware that Khomeini’s Gud’s Day is not about bringing peace and prosperity to the Palestinian people; instead, this is a day to promote hate, revulsion, distraction, and disturbance. It is a day for Islamists to catch their breath, to issue more death fatwa against freedom seekers. It is so obvious that the Islamists use this day to rebuild and organized their network to keep national, ethnical and religious splits in the Middle East alive as political capital and source for its power.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Closedown Iranian Embassies

 July 15, 2012

 

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor.

A spokesperson for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird on Tuesday July 10th, 2012 issued a warning to the Iranian Embassy that it”should not interfere" in Iranian-Canadians' choices.

Apparently this warning was in response to an interview with Mr. Mohammadi, the cultural affairs counselor of Iranian regime. In his interview Mr. Mohammadi stated that there are approximately 500,000 Iranians immigrants in Canada, who have strong bonds to Iran. He then urged all immigrants to “resist being melted into the dominant Canadian culture” and “occupy high-level key positions jobs”. He expressed that the embassy plans to extend its reach to immigrants by offering “cultural programs”, which can then “be of service to our beloved Iran.”

Homa Arjomand, the Coordinator of the International Campaign to Close Down Iranian Embassies claims, “since the establishment of the campaign, its aim has been to close down the Iranian Embassy not only in Canada but also internationally as they are known to be centres of terrorism”.

“We declare that while people in Iran are standing firm against entire regime, the regime’s activity through its embassies increased drastically. Unfortunately Western governments have ignored their activity and did not break all their diplomatic relations with the Iranian regime”.

“We announce that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the head of state terrorism and controls the state terrorism machinery in Iran and through Iranian embassies internationally. He is responsible for summary trials, Islamic retribution, execution and torture”.  “We further declare that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the principal sponsor of the Political Islamic Movement not only in the region but also globally.  But instead of having him and all other leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran stand trial in an international court, astonishingly he was given the privilege to speak at the Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Denmark and in all United Nation Conventions.”

We proclaim that the Islamic Republic of Iran is directly responsible for terrorizing people globally with its daily crimes against humanity from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan to Syria,  Algeria and Palestine, even in the heart of Europe and  North America; from imposing reactionary and anti-human Islamic laws on people, from beheading and mutilations, to planting bombs and mass murder in buses, cafés and discotheques; but not to our surprise, instead of arresting and having these criminals stand on trial in an international court, the regime’s security, intelligence and propaganda forces are given landed immigrant and citizenship in Canada, England, France, Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela”.

Public Announcement

This is in response to Mr. Reza Moridi’s letter to The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, dated 13th March, 2012. Mr. Moridi, in reaction to recent developments involving the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear program, has suggested that the Canadian government extends sanctions against Iran to force termination of  their uranium enrichment program.

Mr. Moridi’s suggestion for the economic sanction that he is proudly promoting will not harm this regime and its system severely; instead it will cause a catastrophe for people in Iran. The troubled history of sanctions imposed on Iraq from August 6th, 1990 to May 2003 proved that people will suffer more. According to UN and UNISEF, over 1.5 million people lost their lives as the result of economic sanctions in Iraq. Over 567,000 of them were children. Most of them under the age of 5 died as a direct consequence of sanctions, mainly from hunger and disease. By the time these sanctions ended, 3 million children were at risk of acute malnutrition. It is said more children died in Iraq than the combined toll of the two atomic bombs on Japan and ethnic cleansing of former Yugoslavia.

Islamic Republic of Iran can not buy credibility!

First Nation leaders supporting a Fascist regime

While the international mood has turned against the Islamic Republic of Iran, and while the people of Iran, despite the regime’s constant threats, mass arrests, torture, rape and executions, are organizing themselves to overthrow the entire regime of Iran, the former First Nations Chief Terry Nelson and chiefs Frank Brown of Canupawakpa and Orville Smoke of Dakota Plains Wahpeton, as well as former Sioux Valley chief Ken Whitecloud, met with representatives of the Iranian Fascist regime in Ottawa. To make the matter worse, they are aiming to arrange another meeting with the leaders of the Islamic regime in Iran. Needless to say the Islamic Republic of Iran is comparable with Nazism in Germany or the apartheid regime of South Africa. This regime’s history is just as dark, as its leaders, through anti-human state policy, have ruthlessly arrested, tortured and executed at least 150,000 people since 1979, for going against enforced gender apartheid. This regime did not hesitate to purposely burn down businesses and homes of the Kafar (infidels) which included Jews, Baha’is, Christians and atheists.  Entire families were burned alive.  This regime has gang raped children under the age of 16 before hanging them in public for carrying a pamphlet or attending a demonstration, and fed narcotics to arrested youths and students in prison in order to keep them sedated and away from protesting.   

Knowing all of this, I wonder how the leaders of the First Nations justify their meeting. They need to apologize to both their own people and the people of Iran.

Canadian government must arrest Mahmoud Reza Khavari and have him stand trial in Canada!

Thursday October 6th, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Governments/Political Affairs Editor.

The International Campaign to Close down Iranian Embassies calls for all bank accounts of Mahmoud Reza Khavari to be frozen.  Khavari is the Chairman of the Board and Managing Director of the Bank Melli in Iran.  This bank is the largest state owned Financial Institution. Khavari has been identified as one of the principal figures who authorized the transfer of funds to various terrorist organizations. He is now residing in Canada. There has been significant evidence that he, along with all other leaders of the Islamic Regime of Iran, have been pocketing huge amounts of public money into their personal bank accounts in Canada and other Western countries. 

Homa Arjomand, the Coordinator of the International Campaign to Close Down Iranian Embassies claims, “ Iran has been accused of playing a great part in international terrorism, and demanded that every attempt should be made to create difficulties for the leaders of the Islamic Regime to access these accounts”.  

"It is a disgrace for the Canadian government to have Mahmoud Reza Khavari and all other high ranking members of the Islamic Regime of Iran with their well-known record of violations against people of Iran, the privilege of a secure residency status in Canada. Their presence must be excluded from all international agencies. This is especially so after the recent uprising in Iran when the people demanded to overthrow the entire regime,” added Homa Arjomand. “

Never has it been so urgent to stand firm by the people of Iran and protest the presence of Mahmoud Reza Khavari in Canada.

Dear Sirs/Madams

 The International Campaign to close down Iranian Embassies would like to emphasize that the violation of human rights in Iran predates the election last June of Ahmadinejad.  The report presented by the Britain, France, and the United States on February 15, 2010 is misleading by stressing the abuses only occurred after the election.  Right from the beginning of this regime, people in Iran have experienced various abuses and their rights have been violated as the government set out to establish Sharia Law as the laws of the state.  These laws and regulations are the most anti-human, anti-women and anti-modernist.  Such barbaric laws truly belong to the era of 1400 years ago.  All concerned citizens globally must wonder whether we are talking about Iran as a state in 21st century.

An Open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the members of the Canadian Parliament!

The international mood has turned against the Islamic Republic of Iran.  Now it is time for Prime Minister Stephen Harper and all members of the Canadian parliament do the same and support the people of Iran instead of the Iranian government. Recent reports being circulated in Iran indicate that the Iranian people are preparing a display of strength on February 11, which is 31st anniversary of the Iranian revolution.  Desperate people, despite the regime’s constant threats, recent mass arrests, torture, rape and executions, are organizing to purge themselves of the entire regime of Iran.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is comparable with the apartheid regime of South Africa.  As the regime in South Africa was then, the entire system of Islamic Republic of Iran remains one of the most inhuman and unjust regimes in 21 centuries.  The law of Sharia ruthlessly enforces the comprehensive policy of gender apartheid and a misogynist state.  There has not been a day without violations against a number of protesting groups such as teachers, workers, students, writers, journalists and bloggers. The number of people being executed and tortured in prisons increases day by day.

People of Iran have been standing firm against the entire regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran be it so called reformist or hard liner.  They are suffocating and want to end the state of these serial killers.  The people of Iran and all globally concerned citizens want to put these murderers and all those who have helped this regime on trial in an international court.

The International Campaign to Closedown Iranian Embassies expects the Prime Minister, and the members of Parliament to side with the people of Iran and make its voice heard against this regime in all international forums and furthermore, to break all its diplomatic relations with the Iranian Regime.

 Re:   To freeze all bank accounts of the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran                              

Dear Mr. Werner Baumann:

Cable News Network (CNN) recently published a brief report on the bank accounts held by the heads of the Islamic Republic of Iran in foreign countries, (see the enclosed report from CNN.) Leaders, officials and functionaries of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been involved in fraud and money laundering for the past 30 years.  The published CNN lists are only the small fraction of what the leaders of Islamic regime are doing with public money. Since the recent uprising in Iran, there has been significant evidence that the leaders of Islamic Republic of Iran are engaged in a massive transfer of public money to their private accounts in Switzerland and other European banks.

Iranian activists demand the arrest of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the official head of state terrorism for its heinous state crimes in Iran, when Ahmadinejad visits Copenhagen

Homa Arjomand calls Press Conference at the Royal Danish Consulate General, # 2 Bloor Street West,Toronto, on Wednesday December 16, 2009 at 11:30AM

Homa Arjomand, Coordinator of the International Campaign Against Sharia Court in Canada, is calling a press conference where she and other activists will demand the arrest of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Denmark – Copenhagen for crimes against humanity.

“We declare that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the head of state terrorism and controls the state terrorism machinery in Iran. He is responsible for summary trials, Islamic retribution, execution and torture”.  “We further declare that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is principal sponsor of the Political Islamic movement not only in the region but also globally. He has no scruples about committing mass destruction.  In fact his involvement in Uranium enrichment and his thirst to gain more access to nuclear weapons should be every global citizen’s concern.” said, Homa Arjomand

The protestors claim Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is responsible for terrorizing people globally and sustaining terrorism in everyway he and his government can.

"It is a disgrace to the Danish government and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to consider Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, with his record on human rights, the privilege to speak at the Climate conference, especially after the recent uprising in Iran and when the people demanded to overthrow the entire regime on 7th December 2009,” added Homa Arjomand.

Human Rights Activists will gather in front of the Royal Danish Consulate General at #2 Bloor Street West to demand that Danish government to arrest Ahmadinejad and to have him stand trial in Denmark for the crimes he has committed against people in Iran.

 

Location:           #2 Bloor Street West, Toronto

Date:                Wednesday, December 16, 2009, 11:30 pm

An open microphone will also be available for other concerned individuals attending the protest.  They will be able to expose the crimes and human rights abuses of this Iranian regime and the leading terrorist – President Ahmadinejad.

Public Announcement !

The International Campaign to close down Iranian Embassies

 The world must know that the only way out of political Islam and its global aggression is to support the movement of people of Iran to overthrow the Islamic Republic and defend “freedom, equality, prosperity”, for the people of Iran. The People in Iran have spoken. They are demonstrating in the streets, and universities. People in Iran want to overthrow the entire Islamic Republic of Iran, for its terror, imprisonment, gender discriminations, denial of all social and personal freedom and mass execution. They want to get rid of this cruel government for imposing the most inhuman, brutal, misogynist and backward roles on people. Iranian people want universal human and civil rights to become the benchmark.

Never has it been so urgent to stand firm by the people of Iran and proclaim that:

           the Islamic Republic of Iran is directly responsible for terrorizing people globally with its daily crimes against humanity from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan to Algeria and Palestine, even in the heart of Europe and the North America; from imposing reactionary and anti-human Islamic laws on people, from beheading and mutilations, to planting bombs and mass murder in buses, café and discotheques;

          the Islamic Republic of Iran is directly responsible for sustaining terrorism as a main tool in further deepening the national, ethnic and religious splits in the Middle East and keeping alive this conflict as political capital and source for its power; 

           that  every one of the leaders of Islamic Republic of Iran, be it so-called reformists such Khatami, Rafsanjani, and Mosavi or hard liners such as Ahmadinezhad,  Khamenei are  directly responsible for assassinations and executions of  over hundred thousand of Iranian activists both in Iran and abroad;

          that defeating the Islamic Republic in Iran is a prerequisite for demolishing political Islam as a movement, aspiring political power in the Middle East. Without the Islamic Republic of Iran, political Islam will become a trivial and insignificant opposition in the Middle East;

         that President Ahmadinejad along with other leaders of Islamic Regime of Iran has violated Articles 9, 10, 11 and 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

and therefore demand:

         To close down all Iranian embassies

         To freeze all bank accounts of the leaders of Islamic Republic of Iran

         To expel the Islamic Republic from all the International Agencies

         To trial all the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran in an international court       

            for their crimes against humanity, in particular in Iran

It has not been long since the victory against Sharia court in Ontario. It was the force of secularism that pushed back the Ministry of the Attorney General Michael Bryant to put an end to Sharia Court and all faith based arbitration in Ontario on “Feb 15, 2006”. But once this attempt of Islamists was defeated in Canada, They concentrated elsewhere and made their effort in England.  Only a progressive political campaign can defeat this Islamic attempt which has so many implications and so many supports within state and parliament of England and political parties and in broad, including the support of many states such as regime of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and others

I will start with practical aspect of Islam to prove Islam is incompatible with the norm and values of the liberal democracy and leave out the theory part. Since there are countless scholars sitting on benches of universities, in on-going meetings, and conferences globally working on that part.  For this purpose I will focus on reactionary rules of Islam on individuals, in particular children and women .I will then discuss the limitation and restrains that this religion put on freethinkers and seekers of freedom of expression to prove that liberation or moderation in Islam is nothing but a utopia.

Inaction on Kazemi poses journalistic threat - CEP

For immediate release                                                                           April 5, 2005

Canadian journalists working abroad are being left open to harassment and physical danger by the federal government's refusal to take strong action against Iran over the murder of photojournalist Zahara Kazemi, says Canada's largest media union.

Peter Murdoch, Media Vice President of the 160,000 member Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada, called the Canadian government's inaction " a direct threat to journalists and journalistic freedom."

"The latest revelations about the treatment of Ms. Kazemi are enough, in our view, for the Canadian government to recall our ambassador from Iran, to expel the Iranian ambassador to Canada and to pursue criminal charges at the International Court of Justice," Mr. Murdoch said.

International Declaration,Islamic schools should be banned,

Children have no religion Petition

 More   View Current Signatures   -   Sign the Petition  Article#1

To:  all individuals and progressive organizations

International Declaration
Islamic schools should be banned
Children have no religion
Whereas
political Islam, as a reactionary, anti-human, and, specifically, anti-children-and- women movement has emerged, not only in the Middle East and northern Africa, but also in Europe and North America, laying claim to political power as well as a field of action to play an effective role in the socio-cultural life of these societies;
 

this movement has started its campaigns by attacking all progressive and modern values not only in the Middle East and northern Africa but also in the heart of Europe and North America;
 

the leaders of this movement have invested considerable amount of money and personnel to expand Islamic schools globally in order to be able to play an effective role in social, political and cultural arena for further marginalization of so called Islamic communities;
 

these Islamic schools have become a main source to impose religion and backward traditions on children under the age of 16, and have forcefully given them religious identity and have encouraged discrimination, inequality, revulsion, segregation and Isolation right from childhood;

Islamic schools provide a perfect breeding ground for the growth of Islamism, uphold Islamic ghettos, empower the Sheykhs, parasitical elders and Imams to openly attack and limit women and children’s rights;

Islamic schools provide a perfect basis to recruit youth for the Islamic movement’s terrorist forces, decrees (Fatwas) against opponents of Islam, honour killings and brain washing the children;

One of the very basic principles of Islamic schools is the segregation of girls and boys at a very young age; imposing Hijab on young girls, teaching young boys cruelty towards women and brutality towards girls;

Children have no religion, and, therefore, putting them in the care of Islamic schools means legitimizing the imposition of religion on them on a social level, and this, in turn, signifies an openly refusal on the part of the state to defend the rights of children to safety, happiness, and welfare;

Be it therefore resolved that
- in order to guarantee that the rights of children take precedence over any national, racial, political, ideological, and religious considerations or interests, the state should call for the total separation of religion from education, and adopt a secular educational system for all children;
- all Islamic schools should be prohibited;
- any kind of financial, material or moral support by the state or state institutions to religion and religious activities should be prohibited;
- teaching any religious subjects, dogmas, doctrines, etc should be prohibited in all of the schools;
- all educational establishments must be co-educational;
- alluring young people under 16 to religious sects, religious ceremonies and locations should be prohibited;
- any religious laws and regulations that influence children’s creativity and their inalienable right to a happy life, and prevent their participation in social and leisure activities, should be revoked;
- wearing or carrying all religious symbols, such as Islamic hijab, in schools should be prohibited.

 Attention: Assignment Editor, City Editor, News Editor, World News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor

The coordinator of International Campaign against Sharia Court in Canada opposes religious schools being incorporated into the public system.

 "We declare that the rights of the child should take precedence over any national, racial, economic, political, ideological, and religious consideration or interest; Complete separation of religion from education; the State is obliged to ensure a uniform school system for all children under the age 18; No one has the right to prevent the child from all norms and standards and it is the duty of the State to protect the universal rights of the children; no one has a right to segregate children and place them under religious dogmas, traditions and habits; no one has a right to prevent the child from participating in social and leisure activities and prohibiting them from participating in dancing, singing, playing an instrument." We therefore call on the Ontario Provincial Government not to violate the rights of the child. The time has never been more right than today as we call for one secular school system
 for all children and no funding for any faith-based schools.
