It’s tough to fight back against terrorist groups. They’re not like regular armies. But sometimes terrorists are sponsored by governments.
For example, Iran supported Hamas, and they bombed a university in Israel in 2002, killing a U.S. student named Marla Bennett along with eight others.
Marla's family sued Iran and in 2007, a U.S. judge awarded damages of nearly $13 million dollars. Of course, Iran tried to hide its assets, and claim state immunity. So the family took steps to enforce the U.S. judgment here in Canada. A Canadian judge ruled in the family's favour.
But Iran kept stonewalling for years, until suddenly their foreign ministry issued an angry statement about it: “The move by the Canadian government contradicts claims about the normalization of relations between the two countries."
Why the sudden outburst?
Because Stephane Dion has begun negotiations to re-open full diplomatic relations with Iran. The same Dion who couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag.
What about his boss, Justin Trudeau? Well, he’s taken foreign policy advice from his brother Alexandre, who’s made propaganda films for the dictatorship of Iran.
So how much longer do you think Trudeau will keep Iran on our state terrorists list?
What chance do you think there is that Marla Bennett’s family will collect their judgment here?
