Mr. Speaker, we are witnessing, in Ahmadinejad’s Iran , four distinct and interrelated threats: the nuclear, the genocidal, the terrorist and massive domestic repression.
 
What action will the government take to hold Iran to account? In particular, will the government sanction Iran ‘s revolutionary guards, who are at the core of each of these threats, and its energy and banking sectors that create the capacity for this kind of violence?
 
I invite the government to adopt my own private member’s Iran accountability act, which would address all these threats with corresponding remedies. Will it do so?
