We need to talk about Islamophobia, white supremacy and far-right terrorism

To suggest the attack in Finsbury Park is an act of violence carried out by a “crazed individual” is not only disingenuous, it is dangerous because it seeks to deliberately erase and deny the fact that hundreds of racist and Islamophobic hate crimes are being recorded in the U.K. It is feared many more are going unreported because Muslims are too scared to report the crimes or do not trust the authorities.

STFU: Muslim leaders in Manchester report rise in Islamophobic incidents.. Oh My!

Muslim leaders in Manchester have expressed concern about a number of Islamophobic incidents in the city, from verbal abuse to criminal damage to mosques.

Senior members of the Muslim community say that they have received reports of abusive behaviour since the attack on Manchester Arena earlier this week.

Any of that abusive behavior involve children being shredded by nail bombs?

Islamic Relief Canada’s Pitch

For the last decade, I have been researching the harmful effects of cultural practices on women and girls in Muslim-majority countries and the role that faith communities can play in ending these practices. I recently authored a report on female genital mutilation in Indonesia and made recommendations to Islamic Relief Canada and to the Canadian government on how this practice can end.

This work of challenging harmful societal norms is at the heart of Islamic Relief Canada’s mission. This year we mark our 10th anniversary in Canada.  

As a Muslim woman mobilizing for change, we often face obstacles from all communities when dealing with these issues.

Our organization is at the forefront of campaigning for an end to global and local poverty. We work with the most disadvantaged communities, responding to natural disasters and other emergencies and striving to end harmful practices, such as child labour, forced marriages and gender-based violence — all of which perpetuate a cycle of poverty.

We’ve done some incredible work in the last ten years helping millions of individuals around the world — including in Canada — regardless of their religion, race, gender or sexuality. We’ve been amazed at the generosity of Canadians — those who are Muslim and those of different faith backgrounds who support our work and are strong advocates for the efforts we undertake. For instance, we raised over $100,000 for the victims of the Fort McMurray wildfire, supported Syrian refugee resettlement programs, worked at empowering disadvantaged youth in the Greater Toronto Area, and launched an appeal for the Quebec mosque attack victims that raised thousands of dollars for the families left without their fathers.

This track record stands in stark contrast to the false image painted of Islamic Relief Canada in a one-sided and unsubstantiated article that was published recently in the National Post.

Sam Westrop, writing on behalf of the Middle East Forum (MEF), labelled Islamic Relief Canada a “terrorist organization which regularly gives platforms to preachers who incite hatred against women, Jews, homosexuals and Muslim minorities.” This defamatory statement was removed after our organization contacted the newspaper, along with community members who were justifiably angered by this casual smear of a reputable and valuable charity. The revised article is now online, but for me, it still represents the dictionary definition of fake news: “false, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting.”

 

Yes, about that:

In Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigation (Project Sapphire) into the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN) continues. IRFAN was one of four Muslim Brotherhood front groups identified during testimony to the Canadian Senate in 2015. The others were Islamic Relief Canada, the Muslim Association of Canada and the National Council of Canadian Muslims, formerly known as CAIR CAN. CAIR CAN, according to the U.S. State Department and a multiplicity of other sources, is the Canadian chapter of CAIR USA.

Sam Westrop’s article:

Our organization, the Middle East Forum, is calling on Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, to withdraw from an Islamic Relief Canada event aimed at promoting Muslim solidarity, which is scheduled to take place in Toronto on May 20. …

While Islamic Relief is considered to be one of Canada’s leading Muslim non-governmental organizations, its head organization—Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW)—was banned by Israel and the United Arab Emirates in 2014 for its alleged financing of terrorist organizations. (That same year, IRW reported that an audit of the charity found no evidence to support these allegations, and launched a court action against the Israeli government to overturn the ban.)

Dowd: Muslim Persecution In U.S. ‘Bigger Problem’ Than Christian Persecution by ISIS

Once again, ABC’s Matthew Dowd has proved that even Twitter can’t keep him from saying something so stupid in so few words. Responding to FNC’s Shannon Bream tweet announcing that she was going to be talking to Franklin Graham about the increasing persecution of Christians across the world, Dowd bitterly brought up anti-Muslim “persecution” in the United States as the real issue we should be talking about.

Pentagon Caves to FBI-banned CAIR, Agrees to ‘Review’ Spec Ops Anti-Terror Training

The Pentagon has agreed to formally review an anti-terror training program taught to special forces by a private contractor for material deemed offensive to Islam and Muslims, even though the Muslim group that lodged a complaint against the allegedly “Islamophobic” program has been accused by the Justice Department of supporting terrorism and is currently banned from outreach activities by the FBI.

The purge of a report on radical Islam has put NYC at risk

The NYPD has had a stellar track record of protecting the city from another 9/11, foiling more than 20 planned terrorist attacks since 2001. But some worry the department is losing its terror-fighting edge as it tries to please Muslim grievance groups.
