We Muslims can’t wait for the next bomb before we speak out

It’s a sinking feeling. But post Charlie Hebdo, every time there is an attack or bomb in Europe, the first thought through my mind is: “I hope it’s nothing to do with Muslims.” Unfortunately it usually is. And while much of it is shocking, it’s not very surprising.

As soon as the words “Islamic terrorism” are linked to an event, it’s not long before the whole debate about Muslims in the West begins all over again. The reality is that the West has been part of the Islamic world for centuries. So an Islam versus the West ideology represents not only a false distinction but also a toxic distinction. If we want to make this distinction meaningless, to show that coexistence can be peaceful, Muslims must be visionary, not isolationist.

    Moslems are not welcome here. Go elsewhere.

      Justin is too stupid to figure out WHY the Arab Gulf state don’t want these refugees and yet Liberals think it’s compassionate and right to rip 25,000 people away from their homeland to ship over 6,000 miles to endure a Culture shock where we don’t murder gays in public and the Police are on their side and not to be feared.

      As for them becoming self-reliant to creating jobs in Canada. These are people traumatized by war while every women has a mental illness issues from the islamic sharia inspired misogyny as lesser people that may be been beaten as well.
      This means they will qualify for ODSP and be at risk for staying Disabled for the rest of their lives as a burden financially and to the Health care system.
      Where are all the Leftist Liberals that were upset when that Homeless man froze to death in Toronto back in February????
      Suddenly people like Olivia Chow go silent when the choice to show compassion is between our Citizens and 25,000 pro-sharia jew-hating muslims outside Canada.

      Obama has taken in about 2200 Syrian refugees so far and only 53 were reported as Christians ( fleeing the Quran sanctioned slaughters by muslims) . During a recent Air Strike to a convey of ISIS fuel trucks by the US it was revealed that Obama allowed leaflets to be dropped first to warn ISIS that the attack was coming so they could fell .

      Justin’s Dad mocked that threat by Hitler’s nazi’s movement as not being Canada’s problem.

  • No compromise is possible between Islam and the West. It’s them or us. Either we throw the Muslims all out of the West, or they will take it over eventually and enslave or kill or convert us all, and rape and rob everyone too. That is their stated goal, and they mean it. Whether they do it by multiplication (moderate style) or by force (jihadi style) is irrelevant. The game is still either-or. Any claim to the contrary is lies and propaganda – effectively takkiya, whether by leftists or Muslims. They keep trying to put us to sleep and soften us up with their evil lies.

      Funny how everything sounds righteous when it is your own ideology. The fact is Muslims the average ones have paid in the Middle East due to Western aggression and so called collateral damage. The fact is these wars have been against international law and have violated sovereignty of nations.

      It is not righteous to want war because these wars are not wanted by the governments or the people living in those nations.

      The people of those nations have to want war. It is not up to us to dictate to the world what we think is best. That is being the world’s policeman.

      Evil versus good is subjective and the world needs facts and does not need echo-chamber inherited nonsense by talk radio in the US. This is not the 1950’s or 60’s at the height of the Cold War. We have international conventions and I would say these wars only benefit the warmongering United States.

        For Billy-Bob, death would be liberating, and a symbol of personal growth.


        • Billy Bob Thornton

          I am a non-interventionist. I am against death and I believe that the political class represent the worst type of people.

          You know nothing about who I am and what I want. I believe that narratives are just created for each ideology and they live in their own world. Which is why I escaped mainstream political orthodoxy long ago.

          You need to believe the nonsense since you want your side to win and it fits your character.

          I am not trying to act because you people need serious education about the issues and the fact that you are being lied to daily!

          • WalterBannon

            you are a treasonous quisling, now piss off

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Wow based on the comments you sure like death.

            You sound more satanist than Christian.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Wasn’t it also treasonous to allow for the mortgage backed security crisis and the bailouts of 2008?! Isn’t it terrible that there is so much inequality?! It depends on what you define as treasonous. I care nothing for the internationalist wars sanctioned by NATO and other organizations. I thought protesting was an essential part of a democracy. Clearly, you only want people to be right wing populists and you have bought into your own rhetoric. Clearly, years of spending time on BCF have made you this way. It also shows that you want the world to be scared of things to lead to deeper wars and into a clash of civilizations. The only people known for having such hatred are past generations and not Millenials like myself.

            Therefore, old people!

            Jooos, eh?

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Remember the war was first wanted to take out Assad. Wars have many coalition members from many organizations. To suggest, it is just one organization is laughable. Israel has indirectly helped ISIS by attacking Damascus Airport in the past few months. Even Harper at one point wanted Assad gone. It sounds to me that the West wants Assad gone in secret. Of course, I know the West has supplied weapons to the FSA which became ISIS.

          • Kathy Prendergast

            “I am against death”…lol!

            That’s a pretty lofty goal even for the most committed Social Justice Warrior.

          • Against Death! Hah! They plan and SMOD laughs. And by “laughs” I mean reduces everything to smoldering, firey oblivion.

            Hail SMOD!

            Hannah and her husband Louis are having one of their regular arguments. But this time, the shouting and aggressive tones get louder and louder until Hannah can’t take it any more. She pushes Louis away and screams at him, “That’s it. Go! Get out of this house right now. I can’t stand the sight of you any more.”
            Louis was quite happy to obey and starts to walk towards the front door. But as he does so, she shouts at him, “and I hope you experience a long, slow and excruciatingly painful death.”
            Louis stops in his tracks, turns around, looks at Hannah and says, “Oy, make up your mind already. So now you want me to stay?”

          There were many people that opposed wars throughout history. Who would have thought that people that choose peace over war are dangerous?!

          That does not make someone PC, but rational!

          The only dangerous ones are those that would use nuclear weapons, and want to use war as the only option. Such people are not stable, clearly like yourself.

          Only the peacemakers shall inherit God, and that means those that follow the commandments. Those that want war therefore are accomplices to those that commit the atrocities of wanting death.

          There is nothing treasonous about wanting peace because those that have wanted war since 9/11 have gotten their wishes and have supported other nations above our own for years. That also means you only want things to favour your own point of view, kind of like a one party state or fascist state.

          • Exile1981

            So are you accepting the gov’t request and housing a syrian in your house? Or you like most lefties; all for it as long as its not your money paying for it, or your life on the line.

      • Clink9

        You’ve chosen your side. Be prepared to live with it when the shit hits the fan.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

 – All wars are based on lies. It is up to us to educate ourselves and try to get past the fear and never believe all the lies. You are not sure who funds these organizations. That alone proves the West is not being sincere with us.

    “Thankfully” we have here in Ontario are LGBTQ premier Wynne making an appearance in the segregated area of a mosque pondering coexistence.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I can’t see her in this picture.
      However, anything that compels her to put a bag over her head…

      • Maggat

        “However, anything that compels her to put a bag over her head…” Is doing us a favour.

        • Brian Jones

          Preferably a plastic bag with a good seal.

      • DMB

        She is on the left of the picture with the white head scarf sitting in the female only segregated area.

      • Kathy Prendergast

        She’s the one with glasses, in a white hijab. Surprised the balcony did not give way under the weight of all that righteousness.

    • Gary

      Wynne will be one of the first groups of people hanged in public at Queen’s park under the Sharia law she is aiding to spread.
      She and McLiar gave pro-sharia homophobic jew-hating muslims their Mosque they demanded in the Valley Park Public school to help get the Liberal MPP seat in that area.
      Barbara Hall and the TDSB also approved it and yet they both fought to get Christ out of the public square and schools to not offend atheists or those same muslims.

      Liberals will stick to the goals for Diversity and Tolerance even if it get us killed.

      • WalterBannon

        well at least that is good news, the sooner they hang her the better

        • Justin St.Denis

          I hope they are entrepreneurial enough to sell tickets. I’d buy a bunch!

    • canminuteman

      It’s just vibrant diversity when they do it, like the honour killings and the FGM.

    I’m done waiting for you.

    “The reality is that the West has been part of the Islamic world for centuries.” – BULLSHIT. That is just not true.

    • Exile1981

      actually I think he meant to say “the reality is that the west has been the target of the islamic world for centuries”
