House of Commons
Mr. Speaker, Iran’s Khamenei regime regularly uses terror groups, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, to destabilize the Middle East and target Israel, our closest ally and the only stable democracy in the region. This week, Iran’s so-called supreme leader tweeted, “Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor…that has to be removed and eradicated”. His ambassador to France revealed that they are funding the present violent protests in Gaza. Why do the Liberals continue to insist on normalizing relations with a country that is such an obvious threat to peace, security and democracy?
Mr. Speaker, our government, and I believe all Canadians, are appalled by the abhorrent statement of the supreme leader Khamenei.
Our position on Iran is clear. We oppose Iran’s support for terrorist organizations. We oppose its threats toward Israel. We oppose its ballistic missile program and its support for the murderous Assad regime in Syria.
For many years Canada has been, and continues to be, a steadfast friend of Israel, and we will continue to support Israel’s right to live in peace.
Nothing to report.
