*This guy just needs to shut up…*
Canada casts new aspersions on Iran’s nuclear activities, vowing to throw its weight behind Israel in the event of a military conflict.
In his harshest rhetoric so far, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper vowed steadfast support for Israel and claimed that the Iranian government has “evil” purposes for its technological achievements.
“My government is a very strong supporter of the state of Israel and considers the Iranian threats to be absolutely unacceptable and beyond the pale,” said The Canadian prime minister, the Wall Street Journal’s online edition reported.
The comments come while The Islamic Republic has long been a supporter of peace in the region and is among the states that have never invaded or threatened to invade another country.
“It concerns me that we have a regime with both an ideology that is obviously evil, combined with a desire to procure technology to act on that ideology,” Harper said.
Western accusations against Iran gathered pace, after the country staged successful tests at the 1000-megawatt light-water reactor facility in Bushehr, stimulating fuel rods with lead rather than virtual nuclear fuel.
While the pilot operations were seen as a milestone in the construction of Iran’s first nuclear power plant, it provoked a tidal wave of criticism from Israel and its Western allies.
The US, Israel and their European allies accuse Tehran of making efforts to develop a military nuclear program. Iran, however, dismisses the allegations, saying it will prove the civilian nature of its uranium enrichment in future negotiations.
