Montreal welcomes an Islamist extremist in sheep’s clothing

tariq ramadan Tarek Fatah NP… 
Tomorrow evening the citizens of Montreal will be treated to a spectacle of Islamist double-talk that will leave them dazzled. Tariq Ramadan will be speaking to a gathering at the University of Montreal.This time the voice of Islamism will not be the regular run-of-the-mill shrieks by sheikhs, but delivered by a man with a mellow disarming smile. The guttural accent we have come to associate with angry mullahs of the Middle East will be replaced by milky English delivered with a French accent.
But make no mistake. The message of Tariq Ramadan will remain the same. The crudeness will be replaced by sophistication; the clumsiness by finesse. And Canadians, hungry for some sense of movement towards moderation in the world of Islam, will most probably lap it all up.

So who is Tariq Ramadan?

My first encounter with him was in a TVO discussion about Sharia Law in Canada in 2005.

I had heard Tariq Ramadan had spoken against the idea of introducing Sharia Law in Canada. I was excited. The grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt would have the maturity and understanding to take a brave stand when the rest of the Islamist establishment was hell-bent on making sure sharia law found a foothold in North America.

However, my hopes were dashed when the live show went on air. Tariq Ramadan made it very clear. He was not opposed to sharia law coming to Canada; he just didn’t think it was the right time to introduce it. In his words, Muslims were displaying a “lack of creativity”. He suggested that rather than ask openly for sharia law, Islamists should have sneaked it in through the existing legal framework.

Taken aback, I was reminded of the Islamist doctrine of Taqiyaa, a dissimulation methodology employed to hide one’s true agenda, which recommends appearing harmless to one’s adversary with the objective of having them lower their guard.

After the TV show, I did some research on Tariq Ramadan’s position on Sharia law. In the issue of Egypt Today of October 2004, he wrote:

“The Muslims in Canada’s battle to set up shariah courts to settle domestic disputes is another example of lack of creativity. Within the normative law in Canada, they have huge latitude for Muslims to propose an Islamic contract. These courts are not necessary; all they do is stress the fact that Muslims have specific laws and for the time being this is not how we want to be perceived. (emphasis mine). We need to show that our way of thinking is universal, that we can live with the law and there is no contradiction.”

He continued: “The term shariah in itself is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind. There is no need to stress that.”If I needed an example of doublespeak and dissimulation, I had found it.

On Thursday, the Muslim Canadian Congress and the Montreal-based Point de Basqule took out a full page advertisement in Le Devoir welcoming Ramadan to Quebec and Canada, but exposing the hidden agenda that has mesmerized so many naïve Westerners.

Titled, “Greetings to You, Oh My Brother!”, Point de Bascule and the MCC described Ramadan as an Islamist ideologue who pretends to be a moderate, but acts otherwise. This was best reflected in his refusal to outrightly condemn the practice of stoning women. He has asked for a ‘moratorium’ on such barbaric punishments.

Tariq Ramadan’s conference on Friday evening is organized by a group of his disciples, but has the backing of many on the left as well as such partners as the l’Institut du Nouveau Monde and the Quebec Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities.

Ramadan reflects the new sophisticated arm of the worldwide Islamist movement, which sees the West as the right place to wage a cultural and intellectual jihad. It preys on Muslim youth who are tired of the old guard; men in beards and long frocks, frothing as they denounce the evil West. The new technique is to undermine the West from within, like parasites and termites, with the host society never knowing what hit it, until it is too late. UK is one example.

Those dazzled by the charm of the new Islamists need to recognize that Tariq Ramadan in 2003 praised a book written by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the radical Islamist sheik based in Qatar; the man who justified suicide bombing. Ramadan hosts a weekly show on the Iranian government’s PressTV network. He has never dissociated himself from the Iranian regime, not even during the repression of protesters who were opposed to the “re- election” of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As young Muslim men and women were being beaten up and tortured by the Iranian regime, Ramadan was quite happy to give the Iranian ayatollahs a pretty face.

I close with the words of French Muslim journalist Mohamed Sifaoui: “Tariq Ramadan is an Islamist. He is among those who want political Islam, the European version of the Muslim Brotherhood, to infiltrate institutions, society, associations, parties, the media and so on, in order to pressure these same societies, to “reform” them from inside, to Islamize them or re-Islamize them, the better to pervert them, to progressively bring them to accept a medieval vision of the Muslim

Brother Tariq, your father Said Ramadan came to my birthplace Pakistan in 1948 as a Muslim Brotherhood emissary and was instrumental in turning a secular Muslim country into a hotbed of Islamic extremism. I will not let the son of Said Ramadan come to my adopted home Canada and do the same, without a fight. Your Islamist father ruined my birthplace; I will not let you ruin the place where I will die.

  1. Once again Tarek Fatah gets it right. It is vital to understand the insidious workings of such people in their reformation campaign and to openly object to their intent at every turn. Unlike Ahjem Choudary, Britain’s mouthpiece for sharia, Ramadan delivers an identical message with a particular charm, smooth as silk. Regardless, we need to learn nothing more from what is already so obvious. Canada needs to expose these Islamists for what they are.

  2. You are scaring me with your message of hate! I think you should lay off Muslims, and go get a life. If we follow every religion looking for garbage, we find more of it in the Old & New Testament. Let Muslims conduct their business as they wish and see fit. So, again, Lay Off.

  3. Josh. If you had a clue, I think you would sit on the ground and play with it. Islam does not compare with any other religion. Sure you can find examples of violent passages in all but only one do you find them in yesterdays, todays and tommorrows headlines.

  4. Josh:
    We do not post messages of hate but expose the messages of hate of Islam to the rest of the world. To be clear, pointing out the hatred of Islam is not in itself hatred.
    Secondly Josh, you make the classic mistake of confusing the exception with the rule. When a Muslim goes around killing everyone in the name of his faith, leaves video evidence that it was for Islam he did it, his mosque generally suports the actions and Koran and ahadith also support the horror, then it is the rule. The very very rare time a Christian or a Jew commits an act of horror against others, it is nearly never in the name of his religion and when it is, such as the shooting of an abortion doctor, which has happened a total of maybe 4 times in all of history, all churches denounce the action and there is zero scriptural or political support for said actions. Therefore, it is an exception.
    To summarize Josh, Muslims preaching hate and acting on it is indeed in keeping with Islamic principles. We will never ‘lay off’ as you say, but will instead use every waking moment to alert decent people to the horror and the threat which is Islam.
    And to attempt to make feeble comparisons to writings in other books means nothing as they are not acted on, even if you were correct, which you are not. As Christian and Jewish writings are contextual and refer to past events. Koranic ones are instructive and refer to how to act in the future.
    If you are concerned about the wrongness of this, and you should be, leave Islam. If you are not a Muslim but a leftist appologist, I suggest you consider what sort of a world you want and who is most likely to approximate it.
    Eeyore for Vladtepes

    ” If we follow every religion looking for garbage, we find more of it ”

    Except in the case of Islam, the garbage comes to us.

  7. juba… Show in this story or comments where this Egyptian/Iranian is referred to as a terrorist. And try to keep the comments clean.

  8. Josh:
    Visit some Islamic countries, not openly as tourist ,blend with them when you are there and learn first hand .Start with Saudi Arabia, the bastion of Islam and then go over to Pakistan,the epicenter of Islamic teachings. If you are a female you may want to catch the first flight back home ;and if you are a male,convert yourself and enjoy four females at a time.As a female in an Islamic country and with Canadian mind set(freedom) you will be shocked to discover that your value as a human being is worth less than half of a male. You can be raped and not have enough of witness to send the rapist to jail. Instead ,you will end up in jail for being a woman. Please take your time to read the Koran and the hadiths and make your own judgement. When the change in Canada comes around ,at least you can say you have been warned.

  9. There was another case of bestiality long time ago in these parts of the Muslim world. But was with a PIG. The specimen actually leaved a healthy life and become quite a prominent personality as well.
    His name was Mohamed (more-ham-ed).
