The mayor of Montreal, Denis Coderre, signed a deal with the mayor of Tehran, Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, to cooperate on certain endeavors where mutual benefits could be found.
That’s the bureaucratic way of putting it, anyway.
In layman’s, it goes something like this: Holy cow, Montreal just jumped into bed with Iran. Why?
Jihad Watch’s Christine Williams reports:
“Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre quietly traveled to Iran, where he signed a groundbreaking agreement with the terrorist-funding rogue regime to ‘boost mutual cooperation in various fields.’”
“The agreement was signed by Mayor of Tehran Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and President of the Board of Directors of Metropolis Denis Coderre.
“Qalibaf is an influential state-jihadist who has climbed the ranks of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. He was also a candidate in the 2005 Iranian presidential election, in which he was beaten by Ahmadinejad.
“Qalibaf highlighted Tehran’s close ties with Metropolis over the past two decades”; a troubling fact, compounded by the lack of Canadian media coverage about Coderre — the mayor of Canada’s second largest city — cozying up to Iran.”
As Jihad Watch notes, Coderre has been on a pro-Muslim tear of late, failing to take note and act on various “jihadist sentiments” that have been floating about his city of late.
Once again, from Jihad Watch:
“Following the jihad attack in Brussels, Coderre’s counterpart, the Mayor of Quebec City, Régis Labeaume — stated that greater scrutiny of mosques was needed; but Coderre shot down Labeaume’s idea, calling it ‘profiling.’ Coderre also denied that jihad messages are being spread from mosques, but he blamed only the Internet for such messages.
“Recently, the Toronto Star newspaper revealed a critical report about a study that exposed that jihadist doctrine was being spread at Islamic schools and mosques in Canada. These Islamic institutions were found to be ‘filled with extremist literature.’”
