On July 4, 2016, elected officials and community leaders were invited by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) to give a public endorsement to its Islamophobia charter in public events that were organized in six Canadian cities (Vancouver, Calgary, London, Windsor, Toronto, and Montreal). Point de Bascule already reported on this initiative:
Point de Bascule (July 7, 2016): NCCM Islamophobia charter in six Canadian cities / In London, police Chief John Pare joined with a former leader of the terror-funding Libyan WICS, Munir El-Kassem
As noted in a report broadcast by the Belgian public TV network RTBF shortly after the terrorist attacks in Brussels, the concept of ‘Islamophobia’ is being used by the Muslim Brotherhood and organizations close to it to prevent any criticism of Islam. In this Belgian TV report, sociologist Gilles Kepel highlighted that “Islamophobia is a weapon being used against non-Muslims who criticize Islam. It is also being used against those Muslims who have a wrong interpretation of Islam, in other words an interpretation that they disagree with.
