The interim agreement signed by the Islamic Regime and the International Community is a dangerous mistake which may lead to serious consequences. The Regime in Iran buckling under international pressure and the weight of the sanctions has managed to obtain an excellent deal from the international community while making almost zero concessions.
The new deal will give the regime a much needed relief from the sanctions at least for the next six months, while buying them much needed time to continue working on enriching uranium and moving closer to acquiring nuclear weapons.
Another unfortunate effect of the recent deal, which promises to give the Regime relief from back breaking sanctions is the fact that the issue of serious and systematic human rights violations committed by the regime against the people of Iran seem to have taken a back seat along with the regime’s financial support for terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah and Hamas.
By making a deal with Iran that only focuses on the nuclear issue the international community has given a green light for the regime to continue to oppress its own people and to silence the strong voices of dissent inside Iran that has been calling for the complete overthrow of the Islamic Regime in Iran.
The threat posed by the Islamic Regime in Iran both domestically and internationally is real and should not be taken lightly. Canada is right to be skeptical about Iran’s intentions and to refuse to ease the sanctions on Iran.
