Federal Court of Appeal Dictates Incursion Of Sharia Law Into Citizenship Ceremony #elxn42

The Federal Court of Appeal has denied the application for a stay of the Federal Court ruling in favour of Zunera Ishaq, clearing the way for her to wear a niqab during a citizenship ceremony.

Regulations have banned wearing of face veils at citizenship ceremonies, but Ishaq challenged the rule and won in Federal Court. On Sept. 18, the Federal Court of Appeal upheld that decision in a quick ruling from the bench. The federal government had sought a stay of the ruling and said it intended to appeal to the Supreme Court.

    Another “big surprise” from the judiciary.

    “A STAY of the ruling!!?? (Harrumph! Bluster Fart!) Preposterous! We, the anointed ones of the bench have spoken! How DARE that peasant Harper imagine he can second guess our wisdom! WE!! Make the laws!! Not this charade of a parliament! THAT’S just to give the filthy proles something to cling to!”

      Dontcha know? – They are are our moral and intellectual superiors, you mere cockroach of a citizen.

      • Pretty soon the Courts will be making “Charter Rulings” on the kinds of cars we can drive, the kinds of light bulbs we can use, the types of doorknobs we can have, and probably the amount of toilet paper that should be rationed per household.

        We’re talking about a simple Canadian citizenship ceremony — one of the few vestiges of something where we can assert unique Canadian sovereignty has been removed, in favour of the fascist Socialist International in collusion with the fascist Global Jihad.

        Some day Canadian judges will themselves have to appear before the judgement seat of God. They will reap what they have sown.

      • Clausewitz

        Appointed judges are anathema to a democracy. Whoever thought this was a good idea should go down in history as one of the biggest buffoons of all time.

  • Game on.

    Show up at the polls disguised.

    • lolwut?

      Make sure someone films it.

      Banks, government offices… get it all on camera.

      I think someone should just yank that thing off her face on camera also.

    Isn’t this what the “notwithstanding” clause is for? Time to remove these “Canadians” from the bench. These judges are clearly out of step with Canadian values.

  • Reading all these platitudes about this woman’s rights and the Charter, I can’t help but think of Catholic Schools being forced to accept GSA’s. Especially since the Separate School system IS MENTIONED SPECIFICALLY IN THE CHARTER.

    If anyone in this country has a solid argument for their religious rights being violated based on the Charter, it’s millions of Catholics. But they haven’t even bothered with a court challenge. Because they know they will lose — they know that Judges are biased in favour of whatever issue the fascist Progressive Left dictates.

    We are approaching the dawning of a new age folks — the fascist Communist utopia is within sight. And when the full weight of its misery is realized too late by Canadians, I”m going to laugh. Canada didn’t deserve better — Canadians are the spoiled brats of the West, basking in the freedom of the U.S. Canadians have never had to fight for their freedom before. Now they will be forced to.

    What kills me is that these sharmutas wear these misogynistic rags over their faces, in the name of “modesty” — but their eyes are all made up like two bit hookers.
    I call bullshit. It’s not in the Qu’ran, nor is it “cultural” – it’s a public political flag against Western values.
    Legalizing this behaviour, is like “Letting the camel’s nose into the tent” for Islam.

    • That being said, from the little you can see of this woman’s face she is quite homely even with the makeup — covering the face of a Muslim woman who is about as attractive as a camel’s ass may not be a bad idea!

  • Barrington Minge

    Surely the only reason to wear a niqab is if you are just plain butt-ugly?

    • Kathy Prendergast

      No, they think their faces are so beautiful that any man seeing them will immediately get an uncontrollable erection. and ravish them instantly.

  • Minicapt

    Time for an Order In Council?


  • So did this hideous Muslim woman come to Canada during the conservative government reign? If so, why was she let in?

  • Btw Ishak in Azeri language means ‘Jackass’

  • tom_billesley

    She should really wash her hand after operating a judicial glove-puppet.

  • moraywatson

    If muslimas have the “right” to cover their faces at a citizenship ceremony, then everyone else must have the right to attend a ceremony where no-one covers their face.

  • Jabberwokk

    Hypocrits. You denied the Hutterites the same for security reasons but somehow it’s diffrent with Muslims.
