Move over Dearborn.

The Muslim Association of Canada has invited you to join yet another fun-filled yearly event. The Muslim Summer Festival will be held in Ottawa’s Britannia Park on Saturday, July 14 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. In the past thousands have come to take in the pleasures of diversity and this year’s theme The World in One City, certainly won’t disappoint.

These yearly summer happenings have been recognized by the City of Ottawa as a city-wide festival. According to MSF’s 2011 press release, the goal is to “promote greater understanding and appreciation of Muslim culture among our fellow citizens of Ottawa”. The festival’s host MAC, states:

MAC’s roots are deeply enshrined in the message of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). Its modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood. This movement influenced Islamic activities, trends and intellectual discourse throughout the world including those of Muslims who came to Canada in search of freedom, education and better opportunities.

MAC is a wholly Canadian organization that operates only in Canada. It has no organizational link or affiliation with other organizations. It strives to practice Islam as embodied in the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and as understood in its contemporary, comprehensive, and balanced context by the late Imam Hassan Albanna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAC regards this ideology as the best representation of Islam as delivered by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)”.

Although the Muslim Association of Canada states it has no affiliation with any one group, it clearly finds inspiration from the Muslim Brotherhood whose goal is clearly defined.

 

 

 

 

 

Canadian doctors confront Female Genital Mutilation. In Canada.

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada is calling for a cultural change in attitudes toward female genital mutilation, a practice it calls a human rights violation.

“We want to raise awareness that there are more and more women we are seeing (with this procedure) because of immigration,” Dr. Margaret Burnett, chair of the society’s Social and Sexual Issues Committee, told Postmedia News.

“Cultural values and norms that promote (female genital mutilation) procedures must change to ensure that females are not confronted with intolerant environments and unnecessary procedures involving immediate and longer-term risks, complications and consequences,” Burnett said.

 

 

 

 

The problem isn’t men, its Muslims. The non-case for women-only-taxis

By Eeyore and Grace for Vladtepesblog Feb 19 2012

A St. John, New Brunswick entrepeneur has decided to study the merits of an all female, small fleet of cabs to chauffeur women around the city. Dave Barnes said he is in the process of researching the idea and wants to know if women in Saint John would use the service. The Saint John businessman said the service would offer “some women a greater sense of security”, particularly those who have had unpleasant experiences with male drivers.

Will this be next?

“They’ve all had stories about getting into taxis and having an, ‘Oh my God’ moment as soon as they close the door, ‘Perhaps I shouldn’t have gotten in with this guy,'” Barnes said.

“I know that there are some women who feel uncomfortable getting in a cab with a man,” Barnes added. Barnes said the idea has caught on in Europe and he thinks it could work in Saint John. “In Europe, they’re springing up all over the place,” he said. “And they’re having a great deal of success in particular with the growing Muslim community, and I think that’s a target market for me here”.

At this point it really needs to be said, that in a frighteningly, although not surprisingly, disproportionate number of cases, cab-driver harassment and rape of passengers are by Muslim cab drivers. As Islam is an ideology, culture and basis for decisions, it clearly has a profound influence on a persons behavior. (To point this out is not racism no matter what the ‘charter of rights’ may say as Islam is a voluntary system of beliefs not a race)

The West Bank has pink-women taxis. As does Cairo.

So here’s my ‘Oh my God’ moment. I don’t believe for a moment this initiative has anything to do with providing women a greater sense of security in any Canadian taxi cab. Most likely it has everything to do with satisfying imported sharia standards into the nation coming from Muslims who create a problem by which Islamic law is the only solution. We’ve seen this demanded before regarding the removal of face coverings at airports and voting booths by which a female only employee is to identify a muslimah in a separate space away from men.

Canada already has sufficient laws regarding harassment providing open recourse to anyone, regardless of gender, who are subjected to it. There is simply no need to segregate women from men in Canada in taxis or otherwise. In fact, this issue like so many Islamic inspired issues in Canada and the Western world has the same solution. Stop making special exceptions for Muslims from rational extant Canadian laws. For example, we have a law saying one may not wear a disguise in public. Stop excepting Muslim women from that rational law.

We have a law saying no discrimination because of gender or race. Stop making exceptions for Muslims so they can create a sharia state here in Canada and while we are at it, scrap affirmative action while you’re at it. Either you are racist or you are not and calling it ‘affirmative action’ does not make it not racist.

As I write this the following thought also occurs to me.

Here is how such a program will likely go…

Several Muslim women will be hired as cab drivers for this new program because the Muslim passengers who use this service likely won’t want a ‘Kuffar’ woman driver and the cab company will want to show how diverse and progressive they are by hiring Muslims.

Now of course, these Muslim women drivers will be obliged to not drive men as they will not want to be alone with a man in their car. This will not be seen as the crime it actually is because we all love making exceptions for the rules of civilization to make extra room for the primitive barbarism that is Islam to show how tolerant and progressive we all are.

Of course this scheme will utterly fail to make any money and will be a huge loss to the cab company as well as the women drivers, so a special government subsidy will be created to show how progressive we all are and now the taxpayer will be shelling out the jizya for sharia law here in Canada. Again. In yet another area.

 

 

 

“Cut the tongue of this lowly Jew”: Muslim offended by joke threatens David Letterman

It should be interesting to see how Letterman makes this into Sarah Palin or one of her handicapped relatives fault.

Muslim militant threatens Letterman.

LOS ANGELES – A Muslim militant has urged American followers to assassinate U.S. talk show host David Letterman, saying his tongue deserved to be cut out, a U.S. intelligence monitoring group said Wednesday.

The SITE intelligence group said the death threat was posted on an online website used by militants after the writer became upset by a joke Letterman made about the death of a leading member of al-Qaida killed in an air strike in Pakistan.

The militant called on Muslims in the United States to “cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever,” the threat against Letterman said, according to a translation by SITE. The popular late-night television host is not Jewish.

The FBI said it was taking the threat seriously.

The writer was angered by watching Letterman on his show drawing his finger across his neck while talking about the June death of senior al-Qaida figure Ilyas Kashmiri.

The message was posted on the website Shumukh al-Islam. SITE analyst Adam Raisman told Entertainment Weekly the website was “a clearing house for al-Qaida material” and drew supporters of the group headed by the late Osama bin Laden.

Executives at broadcaster CBS and a spokesman for Letterman declined Wednesday to comment on the threat.

Tim Flannelly, an FBI spokesman in New York, said the agency was looking into the matter.

“The FBI takes all threats seriously and we will run it down like we do all threats,” Flannelly said.

A Muslim group in 2010 threatened the makers of “South Park” after the animated satirical show depicted the Prophet Mohammad in a bear suit. Most Muslims consider any depiction of the founder of Islam as offensive.

A 21-year old man from Virginia was sentenced in February to 25 years in prison for publishing the home addresses of the “South Park” creators and urging readers to pay them a visit, as well as trying to help a Somali militant group.

Toronto Imam charged with 13 counts of sexual assault netted from investigation.

I heard of this story first on today’s Global TV whose reporters in their “coming up on the news at 5:30” referred to this pervert as a “religious leader’. I knew right away it couldn’t have been a Catholic priest because if it were, they wouldn’t have hesitated for a second to reveal both his name and his Christian denomination. But what I find even more disturbing is this quote from 12 year old Sajid who attends the Baitul  Mukarram mosque:

““I don’t think it’s really like that, because masroor was a good man, he didn’t do anything bad.” ” “It’s not like that because back home, like in Bangladesh, you’re allowed to hit people. It’s OK.”

Mohammad Masroor

An imam who worked at a Scarborough mosque has been arrested and faces 13 charges in connection with a sexual assault investigation.

Mohammad Masroor, 48, of Toronto, was apprehended August 10 for sexual offences allegedly committed between November 1, 2008 and July 28 of this year. Police have identified five alleged victims, both male and female, and are appealing to others to come forward.

Mr. Masroor worked as an imam at the Baitul Mukarram Islamic Society on Danforth Avenue between Pharmacy and Warden Avenues, where he taught Koranic studies to students. He was on leave at the time of his arrest.

The single storey brick mosque sits on a nondescript corner. Five times a day, the men and boys who are members of this congregation arrive, remove their shoes at the door and join each other in prayer. No women are allowed inside. Attendance here has risen recently as the Muslim community celebrates Ramadan, the holiest month in Islam.

On Wednesday, the usually quiet mosque was surrounded by media, seeking reaction to the news one of its imams has just been charged and faces 13 counts in relation to sex assault and threatening death. Many members are skeptical of the allegations. Continue Reading →

MONTREAL — A week after a massacre in Norway fuelled by anti-Islamic sentiment claimed the lives of 77 people, Muslims preparing for Ramadan across Canada are being urged to install surveillance cameras and bars on mosque windows, and to talk to police and school principals about emergency plans should an incident arise.

The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Ottawa, is calling for these and other measures as part of its “Muslim Community Safety Kit” sent to Muslim associations across the country this week. Continue Reading →

Protests planned at TDSB and Valley Park Middle School

From The Toronto Sun

Religious groups plan to protest in-school prayer sessions.

BY  , TORONTO SUN

FIRST POSTED: 

TORONTO – Security guards were planning to keep a close eye as Toronto-area Hindus and followers of other faiths gather for a press conference Monday afternoon to protest against Muslims students being allowed to pray in a North York public school.

Members of the Canadian Hindu Advocacy, Jewish Defence League, Christian Heritage and from two other Christian ministries are scheduling a protest of the controversial prayer sessions on July 25 outside the Yonge St. headquarters of the Toronto District School Board.

The groups gathered at the Toronto Zionist Centre, on Marlee Ave., to demand an end to the Friday lunchtime prayer sessions in the cafeteria at Valley Park Middle School, on Overlea Blvd.

They also plan to picket the school in the fall. Continue Reading →

More on the mosqueteria- Canadian Islamist groups praise TDSB for taking a ‘principled’, sharia stand.

It should come as little surprise that Canadian Islamist groups are gushing with glee over the Toronto District School Board’s decision to play host to the illegal cafeteria-cum- mosque, it’s travelling Imam and the gender apartheid, Muslim menses ban set-up at Valley Park Middle School in Toronto. I especially love their references to the importance of human rights.

It appears the legal beagles over at the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association must have opted to appear for Friday prayer instead of attending the classes which directly reference sections 15 and 28 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteeing equality and gender equality respectively.

Dishing up some more tasty halal tidbits at the Valley Park Middle School Mosqueteria.

Regarding the excellent work over at Blazing Cat Fur: An Important Addition to the Mosqueteria Story, commenter Richard writes “ If the past decade were written in a novel no one would buy it since it’s too unbelievable”.

He’s right. But as I have discovered, this latest chapter in the Islamist best selling novel Establishing Primacy in Dar Al Harb must be bought as required reading, unbelievable as it is.

Today the Toronto Sun has published another article on the Valley Park Middle School make-shift mosque on Friday’s story. Muslim leader Alimamy Bangura, executive director of the Muslim Education Network insists that public schools have an obligation to ensure students can practice their faith. The schools may be secular he says, but the children who go to these schools are not. He continues ” the Valley Park Middle School’s weekly prayer sessions for Islamic students falls within Toronto District School Board guidelines” and refers to these guidelines which specify the need to “take responsible steps to provide accommodation to individual members of a religious group”.

WTF? Kim Jong-il appointed to UN Conference on Disarmament. Canada reacts.

Is Canada’s denouncement of North Korean UN appointment enough?

OTTAWA — Canada ought to go a step beyond simply denouncing the ironic appointment of North Korea to the United Nations Conference on Disarmament, a leading foreign policy expert said Thursday.

Fen Hampson, the director of Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University in Ottawa, suggested Canada temporarily withdraw from the conference as a symbol of dissent.

Given North Korea’s track record on nuclear proliferation, at the very least Canada should launch an internal review of the conference which he described as a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” under the leadership of So Se Pyong.

“This is kind of beyond the pale,” Hampson said. “North Korea has clearly shown that it doesn’t play by the rules when it comes to arms control and the obligations of member states.” Continue Reading →

CAIR-CAN steps in as twelfth player on the field.

CAIR-CAN, Canada’s leading Muslim grievance outfit and law-fare outreach group, has decided to carry the torch on behalf of hijab wearing soccer referee Sarah Benkirane.

CAIR-CAN believes that FIFA rules should have no jurisdiction on Canadian soccer fields when it comes to the choice of cultural dress (it has been well established, even by Muslim scholars, that the Hijab is not mandatory religious garb).

But what I find the most interesting in this article is the quote “Upholding this ban sends the message to young people that what matters not are your skills but whether or not you fit a predetermined ‘look’.” Very curious indeed coming from a totalitarian ideology that demands, more than any other group, just how people are required to ‘look’.

How about this instead: By challenging this rule, CAIR-CAN sends the message to young people that it is not what resides in your heart that determines your piety, but rather what resides on your head!

CAIR-CAN Denounces Discrimination Against Muslim Ref and Sikh Soccer Player

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 1:32 pm

 

– For Immediate Release –

(Ottawa, Canada – June 21, 2011) – The Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN), a national Muslim civil rights organization, today called the decision by the Quebec Soccer Federation (QSF) to ban a Muslim referee, Sarah Benkirane, 15, and a Sikh player, Sagerpreet Singh, from respectively refereeing and participating if they maintain their religious dress, a violation of Canada’s various human rights codes. In making this decision, the QSF cited the rules set forth by the world’s governing body FIFA, which forbids wearing anything of a religious nature on the pitch. Continue Reading →

Victim’s story has unleashed a Jerry Springer-like circus in the Bangladeshi media.

DHAKA, Bangladesh – Rumana Manzur said she was quietly working on her UBC thesis, with her five-year-old daughter by her side, when her husband Hassan Sayed burst into the room and unprovoked, unleashed a vicious beating.

He grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor and went for her eyes, the part of her he knew was elemental to her studies.

The June 5 attack left her blind and battered. Continue Reading →

Hijab on the pitch.

Here we go again. A Canadian makes a personal choice to follow a religion. She then chooses to participate in a public activity whose mandate clearly stipulates that all must abide by set regulations. She chooses to agree to those regulations. She then however, on behalf of her religion, chooses to break those established rules and yet expects that those rules should be changed to accommodate her.

So now, as if the rules she earlier agreed upon are somehow arbitrary and unnecessary, she preys upon our tolerance and goodwill in an attempt to break down the very freedoms that afford her the opportunity to choose in the first place.

I have no doubt that given the choice, should there have been a majority of Muslims within the league, it would be mandatory for all female participants to wear hijabs, regardless of their religion, with no apologies proffered. One has only to turn their attention to many swimming pools in major Canadian cities to see that, despite decades of hard fought battles to end gender discrimination, it is once again being re-instated in the name of sensitivity to Islamic demands (not to mention that basic rules of hygiene and safety are also being ignored under the pretence of cultural forbearance).

It is now time for us to clearly state and compel those values and the rules they stipulate to those who choose to reside within our society. Why? Because they are BETTER than those they wish to replace them with. There! I said it! So sue me!!

Teen cut from team for wearing her hijab.

MONTREAL . A Quebec teenager who referees soccer games has been cut because she wears a hijab on the field.

Sarah Benkirane has been refereeing games on Montreal’s West Island and in Vaudreuil, Que., further west, for about two years, and was shocked last week to get a call from the Lac St. Louis Regional Soccer Association telling her she was fired.

“It seems so unfair,” said Ms. Benkirane, a 15-year-old Muslim who lives in Vaudreuil. “It’s always tucked into my shirt, it’s not hanging and it’s part of my religion. It doesn’t make any sense.” Continue Reading →

Australia: woman in burqa avoids jail because identity could not be proven

Race row woman avoids jail by remaining behind her burqa

  • By Paul Kent
  • From: The Daily Telegraph
  • June 21, 2011 12:00AM
  • THE Muslim woman accused of lying about police trying to tear her burqa off has avoided jail – because her identity could not be proven.

    Carnita Matthews, 47, from Woodbine, in Sydney’s southwest, had been sentenced to six months in jail for making a deliberately false statement that a policeman tried to forcibly remove her burqa because he was a racist.

    But judge Clive Jeffreys said yesterday he was not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that it was Mrs Matthews who made the racism accusation because the person who complained to police was wearing a burqa at the time.

    The absurdity of the law is that, to reach the level of proof of identity to make the case, Mrs Matthews would have been required to identify herself by lifting her burqa at the police station – what started the uproar in the first place.

    More than a dozen Muslim supporters linked arms and began chanting “Allah Akbar” as they stormed out of Downing Centre Court with Mrs Matthews concealed behind them.
