Harper invites Muslim leaders to his home to break the Ramadan fast

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper may have made Canadian history Monday night, inviting Muslim leaders to 24 Sussex to break the Ramadan fast.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast daily between dawn and sunset and the break-the-fast dinner, called the iftar, is traditionally a festive and spiritual event.

    Sickening but not surprising.

  • Alain

    It is so discouraging that we have not a single political leader with the courage, honesty and integrity not to descend to the level of a common vote whore.

    • Our political class has sold the nation out.

      “…for a high treason, the penalty was death by hanging, drawing and quartering (for a man) or drawing and burning (for a woman), and the traitor’s property would escheat to the Crown… A person was guilty of high treason under the Act if they: adhered to the King’s enemies in his Realm, giving them aid and comfort in his Realm or elsewhere.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treason_Act_1351

    Who the hell am I going to vote for????

    • Alain

      I know. I so resent having to choose from the least of three or four evils, yet I remain very aware that not voting would be giving the green light of something far worse. Do I like it? Not in the least, and I continue to hope for a party which will put Canada and Canadians above all else.

      • One day.

        • Canadian

          Hurry up!

      • Justin St.Denis

        I share your distress and anguish, quite frankly. Thanks for saving me the trouble of typing it all out.

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      The Conservatives remain the lesser of two* evils.

      *The Libs and NDP are truly both the same thing: tax and spend socialists.

      • Canadian

        I agree, but Harper`s pandering to beheaders is sickening.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Pisses me off, too. Especially since it is completely unnecessary.

    • El Martyachi

      … ya never know maybe he’s having a pig roast.

    • BillyHW

      It doesn’t matter you you vote for. Not since women’s suffrage.

    • Helios Megistos
    • Must still vote for Harper. Consider the alternatives – much worse.

      • Censored_EG

        Indeed. Harper no doubt personally doesn’t like Muslims at all, but for the optics and vote whoring needs to appear as if he does.

    The Iranian Solution To “For Whom Should I Vote?”
    https://web.archive.org/web/20090426004759/http://www.iranian.ws/cgi-bin/iran_news/exec/view.cgi/13/8804

    “Partow”, a journal published in Qom, recently
    reported that a university student voted for Ahmadi-Nejad in the
    presidential election in Iran because he thought and discovered that
    Ahmadi-Nejad was highly qualified for the position as a person who would
    bring enough oppression to the society which encourage the absent-Imam
    Mahdi, Emam Zaman, to re-appear!

    I.e., when you have no way to go but down, tell yourself it’s up.

      A while back, John Tory mock Ford for not going in the PRIDE parade. Tory is on record in a Radio show audio archive responding to a challenge to denounce the child-abuse and quasi-pedophilia displays by naked males as the Police stand by and allow it in public.
      Tory said that he didn’t see any Nudity or Laws broken while he was in the Parade , then said that IF there was any he would expect the Police to do their jobs and stop it while children are around because it’s a “Family ” event .

      Well NOW he’s the Mayor and I want see if he caves on this issue too and condones the Child-abuse to appease the gays for their votes . David Miller was just another wealthy White male that didn’t take HIS children to the event but somehow sees it as okay that YOUR children learn tolerance for sexual predator and closet pedophiles that go naked around kids.
      Ben Levin will miss it this year , but Wynne will be there with her big smile knowing her homoerotic sex-ed guide will be in the schools to condition children for the normalizing of adult2child romance that CAMH wants to make legal as a mental health issue and only a crime once a child is harmed.

      Wynne is in the history books for sure as the sick and twisted lesbian that committed crimes against children but the gutless Police and HRC’s enabled it and are complicit like to Good Nazi’s that opposed Hitler but did squat to stop him.

  • LauraS

    I’d love to see the exploding heads if he invited Salim Mansur, Tarek Fatah and Irshad Manji. 😉

    • That’d be the day.

    • Gary

      Inviting a good looking muslim male and a lesbian would provoke some muslims to go jihad and storm Parliament to slaughter the MP’s for offending muhammed.
      You draw muhammed , they draw a gun .

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I want a gun in my holster not a seventh century warlord.

      • Exile1981

        How is it every jihadi wannabe in europe has an ak47 but citizens can’t own guns over there… its almost like the criminals are ignoring the laws.

      The muslim population had just exceeded the Aboriginal population which means that the new oppressors will be Brown fascists pushing their faith onto them.
      I’ve seen in history what islam does to the natives when the invade a nation, ISIS is a modern example so get ready for the new norm in the future for terrorism and Sharia Law imposed in schools and work places.

      Muslims had a fool in the Human Rights Commission that gave them the equal status to a RACE of people and gave the Death-cult sect of islam the status of a valid Faith for the Charter Rights protection.
      The dolt in charge of Ontario had volunteered to be killed under sharia several years back when she bought her MPP seat by giving the homophobic, misogynistic pro-sharia muslims a Mosque in the Valley Park PUBLIC school.
      This is the same Liberal lesbian that endorsed that crusade to kick Jesus out of the Public schools based on the Charter of Rights but now rolls out the Read Carper for Muhammed to come in the schools. The Imam’s use the same quran as ISIS to spew their hatred for Jews and gays, the also condone the child-bride pedophilia to emulate their so called prophet.

      In wouldn’t shock me if in 20 that little boy make the news as a suicide-bomber on the Subway system or beheads a soldier on the street in Ottawa, no doubt the media will be shocked and wonder how this happened and why this peaceful muslim suddenly snapped and murdered someone as a favour to allah.

      Islam will turn Canada into just another pro-sharia muslims hell-hole with weekly bombings to mosques by shiite’s and Sunni’s that bring the wars with them.
      It’s the 1930’s all over again but this time it’s islamofascists , they don’t wear uniforms and they target civilians while the CBC backs them and calls anyone opposed to the RACISTS .

      Who cares if Kenney is a “confirmed bachelor”? Cheap shots are cheap shots, Skippy. And that was a cheapie.

    From the Star:
    “The prime minister’s office didn’t immediately release a list of those who attended.”

    I bet this list never gets released.

    • Helios Megistos

      I would never be invited even though I am a free-born citizen of the Deranged dominion; screw all of this constant and cynical pandering for the ethnic or Sodomite or women’s vote; this whole mess is getting to be sooooo ridiculous! http://www.windsorstar.com/news/cms/binary/3772174.jpg?size=640×420

        For a split second, I thought the guy on the left was Michael Coren and he converted from Anglicanism to some cult if not Islam! Yikes. Shall I wait for his forthcoming book “Why Muslims are Right”?

        • Justin St.Denis

          I heard it through the grapevine that Coren was spied wearing a metal colander on his head.

          TheChurchOfTheFlyingSpaghettiMonster has claimed another for its ranks.

          Coren will be publishing his “Mastah Pasta Survival Manual” cookbook in 2016. Talks with Random House are underway. A possible TLC series is also in the works.

          • ntt1

            With his hair style, he won’t need to worry about colander hair like so many of us recent reverts. In fact his success could bring back the tonsured hair look for all pastafarians

      • ntt1

        that is Gordon Campbell then BCs premier, vote whoring at a Sikh temple, I believe that is Wally opal to the right. This might be the Ross street temple where ceremonial daggers (kirpans) suddenly morphed into 3 foot sabres and were used in debates about sitting on the floor to eat or sitting in chairs. This probably pissed off as many normal Sikhs as Campbell accomplished with rural men by appropriating a flannel shirt to vote whore in the boondocks .Who starches and presses creases into their work shirts.

    Milquetoast is no longer an appropriate moniker; groveling clueless dhimmi is too long…what about servile kuffar….or spineless mushy liberal poltroon…oh. I know: stuffed harpy…yep…sounds about right! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f9/Harpij.jpg

    SIGH.

  • Helios Megistos

    I was not going to vote for him anyway as he is giving away the store in a most treasonable manner to Chinese communists and mobsters and Paki pederasts and jihadists and Sikh and Somalian gangsters; it is like having to choose between communist party A and B and C since Trudeau and Mulcair are also rabid diversity-mongers! A pox on all of their houses! By the way, nearly all soldiers and cadets in Vancouver are Chinese; the top brass is so naive and blinkered!

  • Very troubling. A foolish act by Harper, giving his sanction to Islam, the Religion of Unmitigated Evil.

    • Censored_EG

      Demographic change in recent years, largely due to the Conservative government of Brian Mulroney, and then the Liberals, and continued by Harper, is to blame for the rise of Islam in Canada. This is a mistake that will never be undone.

    • Justin St.Denis

      “…islam, the Religion of Satan, Lucifer, Eternal Hell and Damnation.”

      There. Fixed that for ya!

      Accuracy is everything to me.

      • Yes, that too!

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        A little admittance of one’s own errors would be a change for Western nations that have botched their foreign policy over decades and have given way to chaos. Things don’t just happen for a reason. The Western nations through their colonialism also made the ME the way it is. Think Sykes – Picot.

        • ntt1

          I see you take great satisfaction from the chaos, who knew self mortification could be so erotically charged? sure beats whipping yourself with birch twigs or wearing a hair shirt.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            No, it is shaking one’s head at the kind of arrogance the Western politicians have for international law. This has occurred after decades, but imperialism is alright with you? I am assuming yes. I mean I don’t like chaos but you assume I do. I better assume that you hate laws and only believe in two-tiered justice!

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Same kind of logic huh, ntt1. I mean I am just repeating you!

          • ntt1

            What about your arrogance? what if you are wrong? is it a winning strategy to put words in others mouths then construct a flimsy straw man argument from it ?
            Actually I enjoy imperialism, its called survival of the fittest culture, thanks to sanctimonious swamps like yourself we are rapidly losing the battle.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Most right wing neocons never admit to being imperialists. Then you by your words believe that it is the right of nations to police others and never agree to international law supposedly when all nations should abide by the same laws. I agree with one tier of justice. It appears that those that support imperialism, meaning all conservatives and liberals nowadays in neoliberalism, they in essence want total war, two-tiered justice and one nation dictating all. Don’t you understand that people are war-weary, after years of war. Does that ever go into your comprehension?! The fact is those leading us will never admit error! I wonder if you ever think about that?! And yet those on BCF never think about these things because they don’t care.

          • ntt1

            I don’t want to police anybody, in fact I believe the interference in other nations by foreign aid NGOs is solely responsible for the huge wave of economic migrants swamping the southern European countries., your way almost guarantees war as the others are nothing like you, have non of your values or respect for life but they do want your lifestyle and will do anything to get it. if you fail to act to protect what you have, there are millions who will simply take it away. cultures are not equal, human nature is what it is your idealistic posing is a recipe for disaster.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            But you completely ignore what the Iraq war caused. I believe it caused the crisis in the ME today. The migrant crisis that is seen now is because of NATO and the NATO nations that went into Libya. The same with the refugee crisis. It is war that causes a lot of these crises. Also, the West did give money to the Syrian rebels. The West does give money to Saudi Arabia. My argument is that we should follow the money. You think it has to do with people just hating us. No it is about cause and effect. Things don’t just happen. They happen due to intentional causes or unintentional causes, but the people have to know in the West. Yes, the West for the most part is following the Bush doctrine, whether you believe Obama is an appeaser, which I believe he isn’t. Whether you are a pretend carer of people or not it seems like the US reverts to its natural social Darwinist and war-like state. This is what I believe. That is why there have to be checks and balances in the world to prevent this, and I of course mean by this Russia and China. The US cannot police the world anymore. If it wasn’t good for Russia in Ukraine, it should not be good for the US or China.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            It is also why we need strong nationalist governments instead of going globalist which is what multiculturalism is about. It is a shame the average conservative doesn’t realize this. That is why the Canadian Action party is the only way to achieve this. It is also why I support them.

    • ntt1

      not if he serves Niagara wines and pulled pork sliders

  • Jabberwokk

    I don’t see why this is an issue. Offering the olive branch in a world of chaos? What could be more Canadian? So long as he keeps one eye open and doesn’t get taken for a fool. I’m no fan of Islam but pretending like these people don’t exist is, to me, equally foolish.

    • Justin St.Denis

      But completely unnecessary arse-licking is what is it….completely unnecessary arse-licking.

      Unnecessary arse-licking is NOT official state recognition of a community’s existence.

      • Jabberwokk

        I would imagine it is just good policy to at least try to maintain relations. Canadians had issues with the polish integrating as well. He is right though. the house belongs to all Canadians. The Question is does the Muslim community see themselves as such?

        • ntt1

          no they want shariah in a muslim caliphate. this is just encouraging these assholes

  • bverwey

    Where is the Corpse when you need them … PMSH stuffing a iftar treat into his pocket is not a good story?

    First time in my voting history (over 40 years) that I am not going to be voting for the conservative party. Harper has let us down too many times and now, to cozy up to invasive barbarism is way beyond the last straw.
