So why is Nasim Asgari in Canada at all? How does Canada benefit from her presence there? Shouldn’t loyalty to one’s new country be required of “refugees”? How long can Canada and other Western countries continue these suicidal policies without suffering the consequences of them, when these migrants act upon their hatred for the land that took them in?
“Iranian-Canadian Participants at Toronto Quds Day Rally: I Don’t Consider Myself Canadian, Canada Is a Racist Colonialist Project Like Israel; Israel Will Be Destroyed within 25 Years,” MEMRI, June 1, 2019:
The Annual Walk for Al-Quds was held in Toronto, Canada on May 31, 2019. Nasim Asgari, who was born in Tehran, told an interviewer that she does not consider herself to be Canadian because Canada is a “white-supremacist, colonialist, racist project” much like Israel. Asgari describes herself as a poet and an artist, and she is currently studying human rights and equity studies at York University. Hussein Mujtahdi, a student at the Islamic Seminary in Qom, Iran, said that more countries will join in solidarity with the Palestinians and that Israel will “certainly” be destroyed within 25 years because “injustice and all oppressors are doomed.” The interviews were uploaded to YouTube. The rally was also attended by Canadian Imam Zafar Bangash, who delivered brief remarks and who regularly attends similar events.
Nasim Asgari: “Canada is a white supremacist, colonial, racist project as is Israel – as is the State of Israel. So I don’t even consider myself to be a Canadian because this is indigenous land and this land is occupied. So the people who are here, whether they are settlers… We first need to educate ourselves about what has happened on this land and what is continuously happening in order for us to understand what our government – or ‘this government’ – is doing abroad or overseas.”
