CBC: Charlie Hebdo Paris shooting may deepen ‘normalized Islamophobia’

In France, home to Europe’s largest Muslim population, a debate already underway on Islamophobia quickly gave way to another on Wednesday, after gunmen killed 12 people at the Paris offices of a satirical magazine.

The deadly shooting at the Charlie Hebdo newsroom left 11 others injured, but scholars who study Islam in France say the militant attack also deepened wounds and may hinder national efforts to rise above anti-Muslim sentiment.

“I feel really, really emotional about this as a person,” said Valerie Amiraux, who holds the Canada Research Chair for the study of Religious Pluralism. “But as an expert, I have to tell people you can’t use this event to systematically destroy the work that has been done to protect the rights of Muslims”…

Trigger warning: puke bag may be necessary to read the whole thing.

  • You’d think someone holding the Canada Research Chair for the study of Religious Pluralism would have a clue about Islam.

    Then again this sounds like just the latest interfaithy waste of tax payer dollars staffed by the usual lefty useful idiot suspects.

    • DD_Austin

      We get 2000 clowns for 265 million spent on “chairs”
      or this piece of advice from this piece of shit
      cost the taxpayer about $132,500.


      Before islam can be exterminated
      Ottawa must be fumigated

    • Clink9

      Why don’t these guys just lie down in the middle of the street and finish the job. They are dead from the neck up.

    • Linda1000

      The ignorance about islam in Ottawa whether senators like Grant Mitchell, this research self-described expert??, or opposition leaders (JT) or other MPs is astounding. Ditto for our media idiots also. Picture should read “Islam killed us and we were NOT right-wing Islamophobes. “

      • DD_Austin

        Murdered by our own government

        Muslims assassined Us,
        But the government imported and paid them* to do it.


        • occupant 9

          … and continues to do so, importing more and more every day.

          Although I wouldn’t like it any better, if we’d at least fought and lost a war, and we thus conquered, I’d better understand the mass arrivals of enemy ideology.

          But no, we’re just giving our nation away and saying “Pretty please” while doing so.

          Canada could truly lead the world by being the first free naiton to cease immediately, immigration from Muslim lands and begin the reversal of same.

          But again, no. Our own laws prevent us from saving ourselves, so it seems, we deserve every Mohammadan curse that becomes a citizen.

          Immigration Canada and Mr Harper, for streamlining the entry process, ensuring our demise, I can’t say thanks enough. In fact, I can’t say thanks at all.

    • CMH

      No I wouldn’t think they (the research chair) have a clue at all just like our star defense strategist Grant Mitchell has no effen clue to the point of actually fighting the truth….


      • Allan

        Fucking EXCELLENT!!! Hahaha. Way to go Tarek.

    • occupant 9

      Only Leftards invent and/or apply for things such as a study of religious pluralism and do so in order to only prove Islam this and Islam that, all of it good. When bad, it’s ALWAYS the fault of those non-Muslims. Always.

      Not having a clue about Islam is a main part of the task of studying religious pluralism.

  • Censored_often

    This ‘American Thinker’ quiz may be illuminating about the benefits of Muslims in Canada, France, and other western nations:


  • Observer

    The Koran says that non muslims must either convert, pay a regular tithe to them and live as third-class citizens or die.

    A phobia is by definition an “unrealistic” fear.

    There is nothing unrealistic about fearing the followers of the Koran.

    • Martin Luffa

      “a regular tithe”???

      That’s economic slavery, not some voluntary giving to the passing basket at church.

  • Xavier

    CBC: Charlie Hebdo Paris shooting may deepen ‘normalized Islamophobia’

    1) Wouldn’t that be wonderful?
    2) Like Rush says, they will tell you what they are afraid of.
    3) Pro-Islam star burst campaign coming up.

  • The Goat

    I just barfed out of all four of my stomachs.

  • John

    Why aren’t comments open at CBC?

    What are they so afraid of.

    I can’t believe the fucking idiot who wrote this is a university proff.

    She calls herself an “expert”.

    At what?

    Fellating jihadists?

    • robins111

      This is one of those articles at the Ceeb, which didn’t allow comments, along with 3/4 of the rest of the page…

      • Ottawa Eyes

        It is time to end all public funding for the CBC and end all the tax exemptions of Mosques and muslim charities and nonprofit groups.

        • robins111


      • David Murrell

        Indeed. The CBC on its web page published an article “explaining” why it decided not to reproduce any of the Charlie Hebdo cartoon, “out of a fear of offending Muslims”:

        In other words, our Corrupt Broadcasting Corporation essentially sides with the motivations of the Islam–Nazis who murdered the Hebdo group.

        The CBC has shut off 3/4 of the “comments”, because there are so many enraged Canadians attacking them for their pro-Islamist actions. In a way, I am glad that the CBC acts, well, like the CBC: it is so over the top mean-spirited, it makes the CBC look bad, for all to see, during this time of crisis.

    Quote: “But as an expert, I have to tell people you can’t use this event to systematically destroy the work that has been done to protect the rights of Muslims”…
    But as a citizen, I don’t give a flying fcuk what you spout off, you’re as valueless to this discussion as a shirt pocket in the center of my back.

      “We have not overthrown the divine right of kings to fall down for the divine right of experts.” Rt Hon Harold MacMillan (Lord Stockton).

      These experts have a lot to learn about what people are capable of once they’re finally pushed too far. And there’s been a lot of pushing in these last few months.

      • Censored_often

        Excellent quote. Well done!

      • robins111

        Agreed, and I suspect they not only be amazed at the outcome, but also surprised that it happened.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    The question that must be asked at this time is will this lead to a war with Iran and cause people to believe all Muslims are bad when most Muslims in the world are peaceful? I mean there are 2 billion of them. Will people just believe that war is the only option in all these situations? I mean what good did Iraq do? What good did Libya do to bring stability? Ending immigration I can agree with that.

    • Bregh

      Ask Germany and Japan. Ask Napoleonic France. Ask Carthage. Iraq and Libya were regional incursions, of a limited scope, to which we and our allies applied barely 1% of ourselves (ostensibly for selfish and lazy reasons). Once we actually commit ourselves to dealing with the problem, it will resolve. There will be unspeakable tragedy–there always is, and those peaceful Muslims you refer to will suffer as peaceful Germans and Japanese and French suffered. And I imagine once we’ve shattered the will of them that seek war, and end their means and motivation to prosecute it, we’ll rein ourselves in and get back to living and dying in quieter ways. It’s an old tune, one we’ve danced to far too many times, but as a species it’s a recurrent theme.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        What I am truly wondering is how far will the public agree to limiting their liberties and accepting the police state and be accepting of internment camps?

        • FactsWillOut

          Must-issue Concealed Carry would fix it.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Canada needs more nationalist parties for protecting the nation-state and limiting immigration and for demanding that we have secularism over multi-culturalism which I feel has failed and Cameron was correct back in 2010 or 2011 when he said that project is over. No Canadian leader has stated that yet. That is why to me the Canadian Action party which is nationalist is the best hope right now!

          • FactsWillOut

            Both Cameron and Merkel stated multiculti has failed, but they merely mouth platitudes, and there is no substance behind thir words.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            People have to see the changes or the change will happen by the people. That is how we could see drastic change in Western nations. New groups I feel could be formed along the way. The protests in Europe prove that people want change but that also explains why many people from all over the spectrum are joining nationalist groups in central and western Europe like UKIP, NF and NDP to name a few.

      • FactsWillOut

        It is a recurrent theme because of state power.
        Free market distribution of power is needed just as much as free market distribution of wealth.

    • Karmel

      I think most Muslims tolerate us and also tolerate the radicals in their midst. Their guru was violent, the countries they are from are violent and I can only assume they have absorbed this as well.

      I don’t know that most Muslims are peaceful people. I know most of their opinions on what should happen to people who leave their religion are quite radical. I know the majority across the world hate Jews according to opinion polls. I don’t want the religious ones here near me so that when I go to a kosher grocery, I have to worry about being murdered. I don’t want to have to worry if I am safe working out at the JCC etc. I want to continue to feel safe living in Canada. Damn them.

  • Maurixio Garcia S

    I agree in the future all Muslims should end up in a concentration camp, all togethere with their Mosques.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      Collective punishment was made to be illegal after the Nuremberg trials. I hope you realize what you are saying.

      • Don’t mind him, he’s from Barcelona.

      • Maurixio Garcia S

        And to secure the cities and the Western countries you want them to be anywhere?why dont you move to the middle east too so you can learn more from them ,how to defend them.

  • ontario john

    Just heard the French president state that the attacks had nothing to do with islam. I guess that is sorta like world war two had nothing to do with nazism. Also heard the air heads on CNN discuss about the severe unemployment problem in France. Yea that’s the first thing unemployed young people think about is joining a terrorist group and kill Jews.

    • robins111

      I gather PM Harper didn’t get that Memo, he clearly stated who was responsible.

  • Thinking From First Principles

    Ask her what goodwill exists in the Muslim community toward the non-Muslim community when Allah commends explicitly in the Quran::

    “Mohammed is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are harsh
    to the unbelievers but merciful to one another” Quran 48:29
    If Muslim is a race, then by the Quran as quoted above Muslims are commanded by Allah to act as racists against everyone else.

  • Karmel

    Just read on the Daily Mail that 30 Jews escaped the assault on the kosher grocery store by hiding in a basement freezer. Thank G-d!

  • ed

    EU spokes-tard on the bbc just said the attacks in france has absolutely nothing to do with religion or immigration , hey tosser join these dot`s……… all three killers were muslim immigrants ,

    you could almost see her snatch in that miniskirt!”


  • Can someone please explain to me how Muslims are persecuted in Canada? Do they not only have the rights of free speech (such as it is here), worship, voting and property ownership but can complain any time they feel like it? They do realise that had they run over an armed serviceman in India, their neighbourhoods would be up in flames within the hour? How are they oppressed here?

      It’s the terrible mental anguish caused by your failure to submit.

  • robins111

    Best response I’ve seen so far since this started, was a rebuttal of the Charlie twitter, It says, “Don’t be Charlie, Be Vickers”

  • Pete_Brewster

    Will that raghead’s pipe-cleaner kindly shut her gob while not in use cleaning pipes. The men are having a serious conversation about how best to solve the Muslim problem.

    I would like to revise my suggestion of giving hajji a year to clear out of the civilized world and then putting a bounty on the heads of those who refuse to take a joke. Withdraw the protection of law effective immediately. They show no mercy. No mercy should be shown.

  • tom_billesley

    Everyone should rise above anti-muslim sentiment, to anti-islam sentiment.

  • CMH

    Instead of talking about the Jewish victims of the halal slaughter inside the Kosher market the CBC news channel keeps talking about islamaphobia. I find this very disturbing.

    • Observer

      CMH, “I find this very disturbing.”

      I find this very CBC.

      It is time to end the billion dollars a year they get from taxpayers.
