What it’s like to be a Muslim living in Canada: ‘People act as if I’m the spokesperson for ISIS’

We also notice you whine a great deal….

The comments are bang on…

    To adapt an old joke:
    How do you know when a plane full of muslim invaders has arrived?
    You can still hear the whining when the engines have shut down.

      I thought it was the smoking debris at the “landing”site.

      That’s funny as heck!

  • Trust is earned.

    Start earning it.

    When 90% of the actual hate crimes are against you come back and complain. Until then someone giving you the side eye isn’t “Islamophobia” you fucktard.

    • Blacksmith

      Yup it is called situational awareness, you keep a weather eye on anything that can cause you harm.

  • SDMatt

    I’m tired of the whining and how non-Muslim Canadians are put on trial for their natural reactions to the jihad.

    • I love how the TPS just released that Muslims rank a poor 4th in the Toronto Hate Crime Sweepstakes.

  • just a thought

    When is it time for muslimes to start pretending they aren’t?
    When everyone else realizes what they are up to.

      When you are failing at supremacism, fall back on taqiyya, tawriya, kitman and murana.

  • moraywatson

    Mr. Fatah is absolutely right when he says that “islam is an insult to our way of life.” Islam’s totalitarian supremacists deserve NOTHING from us. N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

    The comments show a certain respect for Canada I though was dead.

  • Sharkibark

    I was actually a bit surprised by Tarek Fatah in this article, to be honest. He is normally a very moderate muslim in the truest and most Canadian way. He speaks out against the niquab quite often and convincingly, but his preface about not seeing people give up their seats on the bus to women wearing hijab seems off.

    I don’t think that most Canadians have a problem at all with hijab and would gladly offer their seats to a pregnant wearer or one with a small child. I myself have helped hijab wearing moms lift their strollers onto the bus and have seen others do so as well.

    I think it is disingenuous to use the word “hijab” in a debate about the niquab. One is a pretty headscarf worn with modest but western clothing – the other is a 7th century visual wall of oppression and cultural isolation.

    • moraywatson

      Mr. Fatah is not apologizing for islam, and he well understands the difference between a hijab and a niqab. I routinely shun women who wear the hijab, since I am offended by their projection of their supremacist political ideology. If they want me to know that they are muslim, then I want them to know that I disapprove. The people not giving up their seats to hijab wearing muslimas are real. Our patience is wearing thin.

      • SDmatt

        I haven’t been put in the position yet but I think when the day comes I would not give a hijabi a seat for those very reasons.

        • tom_billesley

          It could prove interesting to offer your seat to a hijabi if that would mean her sitting next to an unrelated muslim male. She’d be conflicted between accepting the obeissance of a kaffir and refusing because of potential accusations of impropriety and the dangers that go with it.

      • Sharkibark

        I completely understand your frustration and do share it to some degree – but it wasn’t that long ago even in north america that a woman wearing a scarf (Think Jackie O and grandma’s kerchief) was considered normal – which is why I don’t find the Hijab any more or less offensive than a kippah, St. Anthony’s medallion, cross, kirpan or cowboy hat. On the other hand, covering the face at any time other than Hallowe’en or when you’re outside and it’s below freezing to me is unacceptable.

        • Justin St.Denis

          The hijab is a statement of support for political islam. That is its history since the 1970s, when it was introduced. BTW, its design was inspired by the head coverings worn by medieval nuns.

          • Blacksmith

            +10, my thoughts exactly, well except for the medieval nuns I didn’t know that. THanks.

    They’re the dormant ones that can’t be bothered offering their lives to Allah mo mo

  • Jean Robertson

    Canada needs to deport whole families…. now.

  • Surele Surele

    If your believes and necessity to cover your face are so precious to you, and you are willing to make sacrifices for your religion, why would even want to come to this country? That’s what I want to know.

    They sure did close the comments quickly enough!
