“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.”

‘Islamic State in Central Africa’ call for militants to join them in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Jihadists claiming to be ‘Islamic State in Central Africa’ have called for militants to join them in the Democratic Republic of the Congo after the extremist group’s self-styled ‘capital’, Raqqa, was reclaimed by US-backed Syrian forces.

A video circulating on pro-ISIS sites purports to be a message from dedicated jihadis, although ISIS has not expanded its official media output to the central African country.

Quebec’s new religious neutrality law offers a special level of hypocrisy: Neil Macdonald

Today, under the gaze of Jesus Christ suffering on the cross, Quebec’s governing Liberals stood as one and voted into law a “religious neutrality” bill forbidding anyone granting or receiving government services – which includes riding a bus or subway – from wearing a face covering.

As one, the opposition parties stood and opposed it, not out of concern for freedom of expression, but because the bill didn’t go far enough. It didn’t ban turbans and the paraphernalia of other religions from the public square.

Whiny blithering anti-Christian dolt.

Banlieues and Bombs

…Kepel’s book is not just a study of the ideology and tactics of Islamists, but a socio-political overview of how this disturbing phenomenon fits within a country on the brink. For example, Kepel finds that jihadism is emerging in conjunction with developments such as the “end of industrial society.” A downturn in work has led to an ominous situation in which a “right-wing ethnic nationalism” preying on the economically anxious has risen alongside Islamism as “parallel conduits for expressing grievances.” Filling a space left by the French Communist Party (which once brought the ethnic French working class and Arab immigrants together), these two extremes leer at each other from opposite sides of a societal chasm, signalling the potentially cataclysmic future that awaits France if both mass unemployment and Islamist terror continue undiminished.

By discouraging criticism of Islam, M103 could make it harder to combat anti-Semitism

The House of Commons has recently been hearing testimony on M-103, MP Iqra Khalid’s private member’s motion, which is aimed at combatting Islamophobia and other unnamed forms of religious discrimination. ‎Disturbingly, some who have endorsed M-103 publicly have asserted that anti-Semitism in Canada is limited to the edges of society, in supposed contrast to Islamaphobia.

Marawi city siege: Isnilon Hapilon, listed among FBI’s most-wanted terror suspects killed in gun battle

The last two surviving leaders of a deadly siege in the southern Philippines were killed Monday in a push by thousands of troops to retake the last pocket of Marawi city still held by pro-Islamic State militants, security officials said.

Four military and police officials said that Isnilon Hapilon, who is listed among the FBI’s most-wanted terror suspects, and Omarkhayam Maute were killed in a gun battle and their bodies were found in Marawi.

Marawi is a mosque-studded centre of Islamic faith in the south of the predominantly Roman Catholic nation.

Europe’s New Official History Erases Christianity, Promotes Islam

A few days ago, some of Europe’s most important intellectuals — including British philosopher Roger Scruton, former Polish Education Minister Ryszard Legutko, German scholar Robert Spaemann and Professor Rémi Brague from the Sorbonne in France — issued “The Paris Statement“. In their ambitious statement, they rejected the “false Christendom of universal human rights” and the “utopian, pseudo-religious crusade for a borderless world”. Instead, they called for a Europe based on “Christian roots”, drawing inspiration from the “Classical tradition” and rejecting multiculturalism:

“The patrons of the false Europe are bewitched by superstitions of inevitable progress. They believe that History is on their side, and this faith makes them haughty and disdainful, unable to acknowledge the defects in the post-national, post-cultural world they are constructing. Moreover, they are ignorant of the true sources of the humane decencies they themselves hold dear — as do we. They ignore, even repudiate the Christian roots of Europe. At the same time they take great care not to offend Muslims, who they imagine will cheerfully adopt their secular, multicultural outlook”.

In 2007, reflecting on the cultural crisis of the continent, Pope Benedict said that Europe is now “doubting its very identity“. In 2017, Europe took a further step: creating a post-Christian pro-Islam identity. Europe’s official buildings and exhibitions have indeed been erasing Christianity and welcoming Islam.

About time… Quebec passes law prohibiting Muslim women from wearing niqab while using public services

Quebec has adopted a law that would force Muslim women who wear a niqab or burka to uncover their faces to use public services.

The Liberal government’s Bill 62 on religious neutrality was put to a vote Wednesday morning in Quebec’s National Assembly.

The Liberals, who hold a majority in provincial parliament, voted in favour of the bill, while all the other parties voted against.

A small victory but an important one. Now if only we had a party at the federal level as aware of Islam’s danger.

“Celebrities” fasting in support of Guantanamo prisoners in no danger of dying unfortunately.

Roger Waters – Widespread disappointment registered at prospect of continued life.

​Celebrities are fasting in support of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who are being “left at death’s door” by a new Trump administration policy towards protesting detainees.

Since the camp was established on the US naval base on Cuba, prisoners have protested both their treatment and incarceration by launching hunger strikes. Under the administration of Barack Obama, who vowed to close the prison, military guards force-fed prisoners before their weight dropped dramatically.

Yet lawyers say under a new approach adopted by the Trump administration, prisoners on hunger strike are being allowed to physically deteriorate considerably further, as prison authorities engage in a game of “chicken” with the inmates.

TDSB Islamic guidebook sparks protests Wednesday

Dueling protests over a controversial 170-page Islamic Heritage Month guidebook are planned for the Toronto District School board’s North York headquarters Wednesday afternoon.

Jewish Defence League (JDL) head Meir Weinstein said Tuesday they are expecting a “good turnout” — up to 100 people — to protest the guide’s links to radical Islam.

He referred specifically to links to the Islamophobic Research and Documentation project (IRDP) contained in Section 5 under “curriculum study and guides.”

That link includes the following article — Human Rights and Anti-Semitism after GAZA — in which Zionism is identified as “a racist, apartheid, settler colonialist project resorting to ethnic cleansing and Nazi-like atrocities.”

With Quebec’s face-covering ban poised to become law, bus drivers seek ‘clear directives’

Islamic child abuse

Montreal bus drivers are hoping for clarity — and bracing themselves for headaches — as Quebec moves to pass legislation that would require a Muslim woman who wears a niqab or burka to uncover her face to ride a city bus.

The Liberal government’s Bill 62 on religious neutrality would prohibit public workers, as well as those receiving a public service, from covering their face.

The law would apply to municipal services, including public transit. The guidelines for how those working in the public sector should carry out the law, however, may not be ready until next summer, after a round of consultations.
