A Montreal man accused of stabbing an airport police officer at a Michigan airport was denied bail Wednesday and will remain in custody.
Amor Ftouhi was wearing a medical mask and repeatedly muttered “Allahu akbar” (literally, it “God is great”) when he appeared at a bail hearing. Police have alleged Ftouhi yelled that phrase as he stabbed Lt. Jeff Neville in the neck a week ago at Bishop International Airport.
He was wearing a mask because he has a habit of spitting on people.
Two weeks ago, I wrote that the federal Liberal government was playing partisan games with Canada’s immigration appeal system. In the name of transparency and objectivity, the Trudeau government was refusing to renew the appointments of any immigration judges who were male or who had been appointed by the Harper government.
That meant immigration appeal offices across the country would have too few adjudicators to handle the current case load.
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — The troubles began over sermons.
For nearly two decades, Muslim students in the Peel School District, outside Toronto, had been allowed to pray independently on Fridays, part of a policy in many Canadian provinces to accommodate religious beliefs in public schools.
Last fall, the school board decided to standardize the prayer sessions and offer six preapproved sermons that the children could recite, rather than let them use their own.
Muslim students protested, saying the move violated their right to free speech, and the board reversed itself, allowing the children to write their own sermons.
But the dispute unleashed a storm of protest that continued through this spring.
Brace yourself, this is a New York Times piece.
The school boards and government are equally complicit in this shakedown.
Each student represents money from the province to the school board so they are desperate to keep Muslim kids in public schools and willingly turn a blind eye to Sharia creep. This despicable arrangement keeps the tax payer funded gravy train rolling and the Islamists happy at having their agenda advanced under the guise of “accommodation” and the insidious lie of multiculturalism.
By the way, you’re a racist if you disagree with this fraud.
Andrej Babis, tipped to become the next Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, has backed the government’s decision to fight the European Union’s attempts to impose a compulsory migrant quota on the country.
‘Before tragedy strikes’: Liberals launch centre to prevent home-grown terrorism
“The new Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence will help us do as much as humanly possible to prevent radicalization to violence before tragedy strikes,” Goodale said in a statement. “It will support and empower local leaders to develop initiatives that are suited to their community.”
Last year’s budget set aside $35 million over five years and $10 million each year after to combat radicalization and violence in Canada.
The government is accepting proposals for the Community Resilience Fund as of July 6, 2017, which has $1.4 million available to fund projects in 2018-19. For subsequent years, there will be $7 million for continuing and new projects.
I hope my project submission gets approved I get some of that Free Money!
Despite some heated moments, no arrests were made at an anti-Islam rally at Calgary City Hall Sunday afternoon.
The anti-Islam protest was originally scheduled for Saturday but the group organizing it, the World Coalition Against Islam (WCAI), had their permit pulled by the city. They vowed to continue with their demonstration on Sunday instead.
Justin Trudeau’s “Canada” at work: Note that this is the gathering that “Wild Bill” was scheduled to attend. He tells the truth about Islam so was denied entry to Canada, but Holocaust Denier Kevin Barrett was allowed entry to Canada this past weekend to attend the Jew Hate festival of Al Quds Day.
Muslim girls in Sydney are dressed in white from head to toe as part of a hijab ceremony to signify the age when they must cover up their bodies, with an Islamic imam slamming it as a step toward Sharia law.
Australia’s most senior Shia cleric Sheikh Kamal Mousselmani presided over the ceremony where 24 girls walked on stage to show their maturity.
‘The hijab is compulsory for the girls when they become nine according to our religion,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.
Believe it or not, this week the University of Toronto gave its official blessing and taxpayer dollars for a black-students-only graduation.
No doubt administrators saw their actions as the height of enlightenment, the epitome of tolerance. Instead, what this was yet another step away from a truly inclusive society and into the middle of a racial and gender identity-politics minefield.
For all of the talk we engage in about Islamist extremism, it’s hard to believe we don’t have anything resembling a coherent policy to tackle this menace.
Canada doesn’t have its act together on this most vital of global issues. But we’re not alone. The United States, for all of its conflicts with al-Qaeda and ISIS along with homegrown extremism, doesn’t have a clearly articulated philosophy.
Case in point: The other week the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs committee held controversial hearings on “Ideology and Terror: Understanding the Tools, Tactics and Techniques of Violent Extremism”.
Islamic terror is an immigration issue and unfortunately formation of a coherent policy would have to include an honest discussion about immigration, that simply won’t happen if our political class has its way.
