Waleed Aly has grilled Tasmanian politician Jacqui Lambie about her stance on sharia law.
The pair went head-to-head on The Project on Thursday night where Aly, who is Muslim, repeatedly asked Lambie if she regretted previous controversial comments on the subject.
Lambie, who openly opposes sharia law, clashed with Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied on ABC’s Q&A earlier in the year.
Canada needs politicians like this.
A pro-ISIS media group continued its online verbal jihad against the Vatican and Christmas today with a threat accompanied by an image of a jihadist and a wolf overlooking St. Peter’s Square.
On Tuesday, the Wafa’ Media Foundation released an image of smoke rising from Rome with a fighter jet overhead and a jihadist standing next to the sort of makeshift armored vehicle ISIS uses for suicide bombings in Iraq and Syria. “The date is approaching o worshippers of the cross,” states the message on the image.
Former CIA director General David Petraeus yesterday warned Britain must beef up its cyber defences to stop extremists acquiring virtual weapons of mass destruction.
The ex-intelligence chief, one of the most senior post-9/11 US military commanders, said one day soon there would be a ‘stake through the heart’ of Islamic State’s leader.
But he warned the West could not just play ‘whack a mole’ when it came to defeating the group online, as he slapped down web giants for not doing enough to stop terror.
As an employee at Laurier, I feel relieved that the public is beginning to know the horror of working in what has come to feel like an indoctrination camp run by Thought Police. As far as I am aware, everyone at this university has been forced to attend a workshop, led by two young women, who introduced us to the Newspeak: gender neutral pronouns. We were told that those who reject this approach to pronoun use are transphobic. In other words, the old pronouns are an “unapproved thought.” Continued use of the old, gender-specific pronouns was not open to discussion. That, apparently, would be a subversive line of thinking. Note that some of us have years of acquaintance with the English language and advanced degrees in linguistics; note that many of us know how fickle language can be. Nevertheless, in the interest of holding on to our jobs, we suppressed this Thoughtcrime.
I have, with my own ears, heard several people who voted for Trudeau saying for the first time since the election they regret their vote.

Precious Blood Parish victim to ‘bloody’ vandalism attacks
“When I reported yesterday’s incident, [Surrey RCMP] said they wouldn’t even come out, because it was mischief.”
The container of fake blood was not retrieved as evidence, as it was in the elements and anyone could have picked it up. she said.
“They can’t do anything with it,” said Ruiz. “That’s what they told me.”
On November 18, clerics and congregants from Islam’s Deobandi movement met in Alexandria, Virginia to denounce and threaten Ahmadiyya Muslims, a peaceful and much-persecuted Islamic group.
The conference, which was livestreamed, featured Pakistani, American and Canadian clerics from the Deobandi sect, an Islamic movement first established in South Asia. An American Deobandi imam from the Noor Mosque in Springfield, Virginia told the conference that Ahmadis had conspired to stop Muslims from “fighting Jihad and committing bloodshed.” For most audiences, this would be an endorsement. But not at this conference.
Newly discovered documents from the Paradise Papers show the Liberal Party’s top fundraiser, Stephen Bronfman, was directly linked to companies that were owed millions by an offshore Cayman Islands trust well into the 2000s — despite his strong denials he had any involvement in the trust after 1998.
The documents show how a Delaware-based company closely connected to the Montreal-based financier was owed $8 million from the Kolber Trust, set up for former Liberal Sen. Leo Kolber and his family in the no-tax Cayman Islands.
The prosecutor said to suggest the accused took ‘extraordinary steps’ merely to make sure no one’s baby photos remained on a computer defies common sense
Turning radicalized individuals away from extreme ideologies and helping them rejoin Canadian society is a key goal of the federal government, but it has little data on how well that fight is going.
The new Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence is supposed to be on the front line of this fight. It funds research and programs that “aim to prevent and counter radicalization to violence at the individual level.”
But the government doesn’t know how many radicalized people are actually being spoken to, or who they are. Public Safety Canada says it can’t provide statistics because the Canada Centre does not directly intervene with radicalized individuals.

Lindsay Shepherd says she’s glad her supervising professor and the president of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont., have apologized.
But she also says she doesn’t think they had any other option.
A mother has demanded her six-year-old son’s school bans Sleeping Beauty because the princess does not give consent to be kissed.
Sarah Hall, from Northumberland Park, North Shields, claimed the fairytale promotes an ‘inappropriate sexual’ message to young children.
She argued the story is irresponsible because it teaches children it is acceptable to kiss women while they are asleep.
The mother of two said: ‘I think it’s a specific issue in the Sleeping Beauty story about sexual behaviour and consent.
‘It’s about saying is this still relevant, is it appropriate?’
