Scrapping the term Islamophobia from M103 is the best path forward

During my presentation I asked the committee some pointed questions such as “Why would the House not agree on a more precise term to combat anti-Muslim sentiment and instead insist on a vague and all-inclusive term such as Islamophobia?” A term, I might have added, which also has Islamist overtones.

Also, why would the House accede to a demand that is clearly unpatriotic by casting an unfair aspersion on Canada’s society and current laws?

I explained the connotations of Islamophobia to the house, stating that in Islamic nations and some Islamic circles in the West, the term clearly also means mere criticism of Islam.

I also explained that the term is often falsely considered parallel to the term anti-semitism. This was important as MP Khalid had also implied an equivalence between the two.

    This is the only way “islam” is held together. Self appointed “imams” sowing fear among their followers. “Islam” is not a religion, it is a death cult.

    • I think it was that Quaradawi clown who justified death for apostasy by
      saying that without it all the Muslims would leave and there would be no
      Islam! And he apparently kept a straight face.

      You couldn’t make it up, could you? And Western authorities stumble about with their telescopes clamped to their blind eyes, crying out “We see no brainwashed savages.” (apologies to Admiral Lord Nelson who used the “blind eye” technique for rather more noble reasons)

    Pity no one thought to give a good example of a word(s) in general use that much more precisely defines where a clear threat to social harmony in Canada originates:
    “Vote Whores”.

    I’m surprised the circular logic of removing the reference to islamophobia in M103 hasn’t been labeled islamophobia. It’s an airtight argument. Unless you’re sone kind of nazi . . . litterally.

    Scrapping the presence of Muslims is a better alternative solution.

    • The application of Ockham’s Razor – the simple solution is nearly always the best. I like it.

    Not enough; M103 needs to be scrapped full stop.

    I defer to Andrew Cummins (this was wrongly attributed to Christopher Hitchens) on the word Islamophobia : “a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.”

  • Scrapping M-103 is the way to move forward.

    Since the Pakistani MP is behind this Motion . My gut feeling is that her hatred for Ahmadi’s back home is now on our soil and she really wants to attack the Ahmadi community in Canada as Apostates.
    Once the Ahmadi’s get the label of an islamophobe they will be hauled before the Human Rights Commission for a hate-crime which will silence them and maybe have the CRA cut off the Charity Status for the Ahmadi’s mosgues as a hate Group .

    If the female Pakistani MP misses the hell-hole she crawled out from……she should go back and stop trying to make Canada a Hell-hole so she feel a home.
