“Meet Your Muslim Neighbors,” “Ask A Muslim,” “Coffee, Cake, and Islam.” These are some of the welcoming names for these events you may have seen advertised recently, events at which local imams and other Muslims promise to tell visitors “the truth about our faith.”
These events are highly scripted — and highly predictable. What they actually deliver: a well-practiced lecture that sanitizes Islam, confirming the rose-colored, politically correct concept of the religion that dominates the political Left.
Last month, Keith Ellison’s name disappeared from a list of speakers at one of the largest conferences in the Muslim calendar. The annual event, which took place in Baltimore from April 14-16, was organized by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS).
At first glance, it appears as though President Trump’s campaign signs have popped up on billboards around Las Vegas. But upon closer inspection, the “Make America Great Again” message has been co-opted by a local mosque to push Islam.
A 17-year-old Danish girl charged with planning to bomb two schools in Denmark, including a Jewish one, allegedly was inspired by the terrorist who killed a security guard at a Copenhagen synagogue in 2015.
DePaul University has prohibited the campus group Turning Point USA from displaying posters with the slogan “Gay Lives Matter” to advertise a presentation Wednesday by a gay reporter on radical Islam’s discrimination against the LGBTQ community.
The decision to reject the posters was made as some students at the school protest the event, titled “Dictatorships and Radical Islam: The Enemies of Gay Rights” and to be given by journalist and foreign correspondent James Kirchick.
Kirchick has worked for numerous publications, foreign and domestic, and is considered a leading voice on American gay politics and international gay rights.
But DePaul Students for Justice in Palestine has indicated on Facebook that its members intend to protest the event. Students leading the charge against his talk appear to have left out any mention of the fact that Kirchick is gay as they sound the alarm on social media.
At a press briefing on Tuesday, the director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia accused the FBI of perpetuating bias incidents against Muslims by questioning more members of the Muslim community about potential violence than supporters of President Trump.
While discussing the findings in the 2017 “Empowerment of Hate” report, co-author Corey Saylor said harassment was the number one kind of bias incident against Muslims. However, according to Saylor, the second most common kind of bias against Muslims was reportedly FBI questioning.
Our organization is calling on Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, to withdraw from a troubling fundraiser to benefit “Islamic Relief” scheduled for Toronto on May 20th.
Here’s why: Muslims in North America are being forced to live under the thumb of extremists. Some of western Islam’s most prominent clerics might publicly praise and practice interfaith dialogue, but we have seen how, behind closed doors, many of them promote hatred and incite violence. To the dismay of moderates, these extremists have gained control over much of the Muslim community, partly because they have been legitimized as representative voices by government, the media and prominent public figures who fail to note the Islamists’ bigoted rhetoric once the microphones are switched off.
This is Justin Trudeau’s Canada, he is Islam’s useful idiot. Expect nothing to come of this.
Note the link above no longer works, a 404 Not Found page is in the place of the article as of 5:30 PM. It appears the National Post may have spiked this article, it is no longer accessible on the NatPo site though it does turn up in searches for both Trevor Noah and Sam Westrop, but the links are dead. Westrop is the author of the article and the director of Islamist Watch. The article appears on the Islamist Watch site however the link to the National Post version is dead.
Below the fold is the article in it’s entirety, here it is linked at the National Post in Google Cache.
Growing concern in Canada over liberal policies benefitting Muslim extremists sheds light on why an “anti-Islamophobia” bill — proposed in the wake of the deadly January 17 Quebec City mosque attack and approved by parliament on March 23 — spurred such heated controversy there.
Motion 103, tabled by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid, a Muslim representing Mississauga-Erin Mills, calls on the Canadian government to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.” Because the bill makes no mention of any other religious group targeted by bigots, it was opposed by most Conservative Party politicians and a majority of the public.
From David Nitkin at Canadian Citizens for Charter Rights and Freedoms here:
This may be the most important official Parliamentary Petition you and I will sign with the power to affect the Trudeau Liberals and shake their support for M-103. MPs jobs will be on the line if they go forward with M-103. It is a Parliamentary E-Motion which carries much more weight than a change.org public petition. Please consider signing it immediately and promoting it today to every like-minded citizen you know. You must sign before 26 July 2017. More.
Reality check: The prospect of getting rid of them before 2019 is invigorating even if nothing happens.
