Why I oppose the Islamophobia Motions

As a Canadian of Iranian origin, former refugee and former child prisoner from Iran, I have a rational fear of radical Islam. I grew up in Iran and in a pluralistic country that is mainly Muslim but with people of all faiths where they were treated with dignity, inclusiveness and equality until Iran faced the Islamic Revolution in 1979 where an unknown man in exile named Ayatollah Khomeini came to power with the help of the world powers and the liberal leftist Marxist media brainwashing the naive nation.

    But US President Jimmy Carter supported Ayatollah Khomeini, so what’s not to like?

    The Ayatollah Khomeini even assured Jimmy that if he was allowed to take over Iran they would remain pro-USA. And you know Muslims always keep their word!

    Excellent article by an articulate and educated woman of Iranian background.

    “I would never have dreamed that in a country that I cherished and found safety and freedom for 26 years, now I would be facing the very same fear and horror of Sharia law that I experienced in Iran and in the early 1990’s in Turkey.”

    Shabnam, thanks for a great article and welcome to Trudeau’s Canada.

    Sad to say it, but you’re not his kind of Muslim. Justin Trudeau’s kind of Muslim woman loves to wear the hijab, niqab, or burka. Furthermore, Trudeau’s kind of Muslim strongly endorses any and all efforts at criminalizing “Islamophobia” and Trudeau believes that implementing sharia law to make Islamists/Muslims happy is worth it even if this means compromising freedom of speech for all Canadians.

    No offense, Ms Assadollahi. But I have more trust in our Exalted PM (prima muslim) and self identified feminist and snow board instructor in matters of Islam especially when it comes to islam as seen from the viewpoint of a woman from a muslim majority country. Perhaps you should contact Sir Justin the Good. I’m sure he will take the time to educate you that Islam is the religion of Peace. (Sarcasm, I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

    My deepest respect to Ms Assadollahi. She should be the one educating our government on Islam.
