According to a United Nations report, in just a couple of weeks in June ISIS killed more than 1,000 Iraqi civilians and wounded another thousand.
This is not an easily contained situation. It could greatly expand. And with it expands the harm to civilians.
Yet few Canadians have taken to the streets over this. The only reported anti-ISIS protest was a Shia group in Calgary (ISIS is Sunni). Strange given that we consider ourselves citizens of the world and tend to protest every chance we get.
Canadian Muslims haven’t been rising up to oppose this use of their religion to slaughter thousands and impose harsh, misogynistic laws against millions.
