Hello there…..its me again…….Don Laird….
We would do well to listen to the echoes of history and the dire warnings of Geert Wilders.

He reminds me of the stories about how Winston Chruchill was treated before WWII
Potential concern about Ottawa Community Housing: I live near an OCH townhouse complex(thankfully not one of the ones blighted by violence in recent months), and walk though it daily. It is quite safe and its residents unobtrusive. Not surprisingly, Somalis are vastly overrepresented among its residents, as are Muslims in general. One thing that has recently struck me, though is the apparent lack of Somali men. In contrast, the Arab couples generally seem to consist of an husband and wife, while one most often sees the adult Somali women alone. Now, there are a number of possible reasons for this. First, Somali women tend to stick out due to their distinct (relative to other Muslims) style of dress, and facial features that separate them from most other Africans. Since most Muslim men in Canada seem to dress in a way that is more or less a variation on common male fashions, they tend to be less conspicuous than their female relatives. However, having lived in Ottawa and Toronto, I’m pretty good at guessing someone’s national origins based on their appearance. So the obvious question is, if the Somali fathers aren’t living with their families, where are they? They could be living separately in order to maximize welfare payouts, but the one possibility that recently occurred to me (which I sincerely hope is not the case) is that Jihadi husbands abroad have hit upon Canada as a place to stash their families safely while they do Allah’s bidding in Somalia or Iraq. In your research, have you come across anything to suggest that we let in fewer Somali men than we do women or that Somali families tend not to stay intact once they arrive here?
Very sharp observation, Lynx.
Your tentative conclusion is sobering, quite possible, I’m afraid.
Someone here may know where to look. Let’s wait…
The cover of Charlie Hebdo since the slaughter……
“ALL IS FORGIVEN”

No it isn’t.
I wonder what they are thinking at the magazine. Are they actually saying that they’re over the murders of their colleagues and they hold no hard feelings against the murderers? That’s what “All is forgiven” means, after all. Are they saying that the past is the past and that they really don’t care anymore? That was quick… If I was them I’d still be a bit whizzed off at having ten of my co-workers blown to pieces, but who am I to say – I don’t work there. If they don’t care, then they don’t care. It’s all water under the bridge now to the people at Charlie Hebdo, I guess…yesterday’s news…? Really?
I don’t get it.
Actually, I don’t get it. I think I missed the point of the Charlie cover. My comment makes no sense…:)
What a Muslim sees –
4/ Good thinking from the shrink in the article:
In my opinion we should have special departments for fundamentalist Muslims in prison, so they do not have the opportunity to indoctrinate the paltry jailbird Mohammed or Ismael sentenced for drug crime or violence, and who experience themselves marginalized in society and as treated unfairly.
Having followed Jihad-Watch and similar sites over the years, I’m pleased to read fresh, topical insights.
Sounds good to me but the left would scream bloody murder about profiling.
Prisons profile all the time.
So do cops but the left hates profiling since it catches crooks, how can they win elections if their voters are in jail?
In the black community there are movements afoot to end the disenfranchisement of felons.
7/ The link to The Book of Jihad by Ibn Nuhaas doesn’t seem to go where it’s supposed to.
It makes sense that this would be what the so-called ‘greater’ jihad is all about, though I have never come across any real discussion of it in the Islamic law I’ve seen. It rates barely a mention in Reliance of the Traveler. It would be good to have some other sources, if anyone is aware of any.
The Book of Jihad is here:
Anyone who has never seen this Book of Jihad and can get his Islamonausea under control long enough may find it worth a look. The book and its author are highly regarded and are much-praised on Islamic sites I wasted more of my life looking at just now, like Sunni Forum and World of Islam. The Wikipedia entry for Ibn Nuhaas (died 814 AH) says it was Abdullah Yusuf Azzan’s favourite book. Azzan is the so-called Father of Global Jihad who established Al-Qaeda with OBL and also co-founded Lashkar-e-Taiba.
The book is a handily-organized compilation of Koran quotes and hadiths and commentary supporting the case that jihad is exactly what we all know it is, with chapters on the many virtues of waging it against the non-believer and the virtues of martyrdom etc. The ‘greater’ jihad is dismissed in an appendix (p 173-180) as being based on a handful of weak hadiths. More than a quick way to end online arguments with Muslims, the book might be of some help in waking the sleeping dhimmi.
