“Islamophobia” motion under review at hearings in Ottawa

“Islamophobia”, is a term that was coined in the wake of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, and it’s the use of this word specifically, that Dr. Sherif Emil objects to in Motion-103.

It was the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Islamic organisation Emil says, that used the term “to really quell any criticism not of radical Islam, but of mainstream Islam.”

    When will the Canadian government stop being Islamophobic and declare Arabic as our third official language?

      First!

        I’m sorry, I was being Euro-centric. Yes, Arabic must be our first and only official language since we are a Muslim country.

        I have reported myself to the Young Liberals who will be picking me up shortly for my stay at the reeducation centre.

    Islamophobic:: A word used by the left and the stupid, (Sorry for the redundancy) which has no real meaning, nor application, that is used to shut down debate whenever a Progressive begins to lose an argument.

    Funny though, everything we needed to know about Islam we learned on 9/11…and all we remember is the wordspeak it spawned….

    As an Egyptian Christian, Dr. Emil knows very well what it is like to live in a society where one dare not criticize Islam. Quite understandably, he does not think Justin and his Liberals should be turning Canada into such a society.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      justin and his crew don’t make much of an effort To help Christians out of those shit holes.

    So would I be considered Islamophobic, because I believe their prophet was a murdering, rapist, pedophile, and lunatic? And his followers inbred, murdering, stone age, goat screwing parasites?

    • Canadian Born

      Me to, because I completely agree with you. All that Quebec is or is not, they sure have got it right this time. Every province should be going this route.
