United Church Observer: Broken dreams in Little Mogadishu, Toronto

Pictures of ‘Little Mogadishu’ are scarce but I believe this to be in Toronto.

I won’t quote a single line since the last time I sourced them they complained about quoting too much text. It is a long whine about crime: Read it here.

But who’s committing the crimes? The residents are. So how it that a story for a (supposedly) Christian monthly?  Muslims killing each other: that is what they do.  

Naturally the story implies that somehow ‘society is at fault.’  Wow!  How many times have we heard that before?  How come other migrant groups don’t have same problem?

    Big Mogadishu is one of the biggest shit holes in the galaxy, so why exactly is anyone surprised that Little Mogadishu is one of the biggest shit holes in Canada?

    “The police actively criminalize young Somali men” says U of T professor Rima Berns-McGown. Wow. All those Somali criminals are helpless passive victims of the police. I’m embarrassed that the bar for being a professor at my alma mater is so low.

      Can’t blame the criminals anymore. It’s always our fault somehow.

        looks like I am guilty… again.

    Maybe it is our culture. And if that’s the case they should live in a country where Islam is its culture.

      Give Toronto another decade or two.

    Dixon Road …….. Such diversity.

      A hellhole. Those high rises are notorious! But only since they have been occupied by Somalis. Funny that.

      The CBC tried to paint theses savages as victims of islamophobia , but all along it was them that took over the area and wanted sharia law in the Apartment building .
      A few years back the Somali’s in that area called the Police racists for not having regular patrols of their area because of drug dealers.
      So when the Cops did Patrol the area and caught a Somali drug dealer, the STAR reported that a mob of them started to throw object at the police for arresting a fellow muslim. The cops had to flee the area to a safe zone in canada to process the alleged criminal.
      These are the people that had their Mosque post a notice to not say Merry Christmas in December because it offended allah.
      We took in thousands of these people that have many still on welfare and still want sharia law in their area. Some of their mosques are now pumping out Jihadists.

        I’ve been in those buildings. Just brutal.They want nothing to do our Canadian lifestyle other than taking our money.

        Maybe if the politicians responsible for bringing them here had to live there for a year, that would be the end of this madness.

    This from a magazine that had a major story awhile back praising Wynne. But then what do you expect from a church that has atheist ministers and doesn’t believe in anything Christian.

  • Dana Garcia

    Merely relocating Somalis to a better culture does nothing to fix their inherent dysfunction.

    • Surele Surele

      not ready for freedom, that’s it.

    • Justin St.Denis

      versus datfunction?

  • David

    Races don’t seem to mix very well.

    True story. I had an acquaintance some years back who had a bit of a crack problem. The area that he bought it from was run by Somali gangs and Somali dealers. He used to complain about how the dealers would carry the wrapped pieces around in their mouth and when he paid them they would just spit a rock out on the ground and he’d have to pick it up. He was disgusted. I mean, they can’t even get drug dealing right. How hard is that?

    • lolwut?

      Could have been worse, if it was prison they’d be spitting those rocks from somewhere else.

  • Rosenmops

    You can bet that none of the holier-than-thou people writing this drivel live anywhere near the Somalis or would let their children go to school in a Somali area.
