Every Friday from now on we will pray for Omar

An original translation by Liberty Dk.

From Jyllands Posten:

Monday’s unofficial commemoration of the alleged assailant, Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein, escalated in a very short time.  Every Friday from now prayers will be said for him.

Terror in Copenhagen – Nola Grace Gaardmand

42-year-old Bilal Gurleyek kneels down and puts a note on the ground.   He puts it in front of the many flowers that passers-by had, throughout the day laid on the ground in front of the place where the 22-year-old Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein Sunday night was shot and killed by police.

On the note Bilal Gurleyek writes that this place will be a meeting place for the country’s many Muslims.

“I take great distance from his actions, and I have a big problem with Islamists. But I have come here today because he was born a Muslim, and he died as a Muslim and as a Muslim I feel it is my duty to come here and pray for him, ” says Bilal Gurleyek who knew the presumed perpetrator, and who will now start a new tradition in Nørrebro’s Northwest district of Copenhagen:

Every Friday he intends to invite other Muslims from the neighborhood to come and pray for Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein’s “Muslim soul”.  Already, Bilal Gurleyek has spoken with numerous men from the neighborhood, who also intend to make Svanevej a place of prayer every Friday.

We will not distance ourselves

Throughout the whole day the street was teeming with journalists, police and local residents. Some of those present knew the alleged offender, while others just came by to show support for the family of the deceased. Continue Reading →

Coming Soon: Tariq Telling It Like It Is.

Soooo.. I was tootling around the blogosphere, and one link led to another and I find out that Tariq Ramadan is giving a lecture at a Catholic University about islam. This is quite interesting, given that islam is pretty much mutually exclusive to christianity – especially catholicism. The catholic writer Belloc considered islam to be a great heresy and devoted a chapter to it in his book called, appropriately enough, The Great Heresies.

Seeing as I’m in Australia and not in Canada, perhaps one of the regular readers here from Waterloo might like to mosey along in March as I can’t attend. That weekend we’ve our own dawafest (facebook page) here in Melbournistan.

It appears that SJU is rather liberal in its catholicism, and Ramadan is a past master at dawah and taqiyya, so I expect there will be quite a few attendees who will go weak at the knees. Unlike Barry Obama, he really is and excellent orator.

For your education and perhaps enjoyment, here is his debate with the late great Christopher Hitchens on whether Islam Is A Religion Of Peace. Hitch scores some nice points, but it’s also worth watching to see how Ramadan works his way around things.

Moderate Muslims Of Calgary: “How to Make Your Wife Happy?” BEAT HER!

I believe this is the third post on the Islamic position on beating ones wives I have done today, each on a different location. This might indicate, to the careful observer, that the fact that all these leaders are Islamic is of more importance than if they happen to be in Egypt or Canada or wherever.

It just might be.

From Blazing Cat fur:

Reader WallyJ sent this in direct from The Muslims Of Calgary website, in a section entitled “How To Make Your Wife Happy?”  moderate Muslims are encouraged to beat their wives…but only moderately.

Patience and Mildness

– Problems are expected in every marriage so this is normal. What is wrong is excessive responses and magnifying problems until a marital breakdown.
– Anger should be shown when she exceeds the boundaries of Allah SWT, by delaying prayers, backbiting, watching prohibited scenes on TV, etc..
– Forgive the mistakes she does to you.

Correcting her Mistakes

– First, implicit and explicit advice several times.
– Then by turning your back to her in bed (displaying your feelings). Note that this does not include leaving the bedroom to another room, leaving the house to another place, or not talking with her.
– The last solution is lightly hitting (when allowable) her. In this case, the husband should consider the following:

Just fancy that… “I told you so” edition.

Married three wives in “Muslim ceremonies”.

But the religion of Islam strictly forbids Muslim women marrying non-Muslim men.

So these cannot have been Muslim ceremonies, unless of course…

And that’s why George Galloway won Bradford West.

It hate to say, “I told you so!”, but…

from MailOnline

Galloway’s new Dutch bride (his fourth) is younger than his daughter. . . and his last wife had a baby four months ago

After his sensational by-election victory of last week, he might have been expected to pause for breath.

George Galloway with his fellow Muslim constituents

Instead, three-times-married ‘Gorgeous George’ Galloway flew to Amsterdam and took a fourth bride – a woman 30 years his junior.

The ceremony, in a hotel, happened less than 48 hours after the MP took the Labour stronghold of Bradford West with an astonishing 10,000-plus majority for his Respect party. And it was a mere four months since his third wife had given birth to a son – their second.

The fourth Mrs Galloway is a Dutch-born researcher of Indonesian extraction who took a degree in cultural anthropology at the University of Utrecht. She also studied in Amsterdam before taking a masters degree in children’s rights at Amsterdam University.

From 1979 to 1999, Mr Galloway was married to his former teenage sweetheart, Elaine Fyffe. They had a daughter, Lucy, now 29 with two children of her own.

The couple separated in 1987 but did not divorce for a further 12 years.

The politician had already taken Dr Amineh Abu-Zayyad, a Palestinian scientist, as a second wife in a Muslim ceremony in 1994. A year after his divorce from Elaine in 1999, he married Dr Abu-Zayyad in a civil ceremony.

[So he married his second wife – in a Muslim ceremony – five years before he divorced his first. So Mr Galloway is either a bigamist or a Muslim. This is probably the time of his conversion. As a bigamist he could only “remarry” in a tradition that allowed polygamy.]

The politician had already taken Dr Amineh Abu-Zayyad, a Palestinian scientist, as a second wife in a Muslim ceremony in 1994. A year after his divorce from Elaine in 1999, he married Dr Abu-Zayyad in a civil ceremony.

By this time the Respect MP had already had a son, Zein, with his Lebanese former researcher, Rima Husseini, whom he had married in a Muslim ceremony in 2007.

REPORT: George Galloway returns to Westminster wins unprecedented landslide in Bradford West

George Galloway, new MP for Bradford West, in front of the Muslim Brotherhood's banner

George Galloway the shill for Saddam Hussein, the supporter of Hamas, the Islamists’ friend, has been returned to Westminster as an MP after a landslide shock by-election victory of truly unprecedented proportions.

The 53% vote increase his Respect party took in tonight’s result represents the largest EVER increase of a vote in Westminster parliamentary history. His over 10,000 majority, is about as comfortable as any MP could ever want.

Bradford West’s demographics are startling. The Islamic tipping point has been passed, so that the Muslim population dominates every aspect of culture, identity and politics, regardless of actually only consituting 43% compared to the 53% of indiginous whites. These are however 2001 census figures (!). Bradford West, is Europe’s future.

This startling result is a powerful representation, both of the rapidity with which Muslim populations can swell in the blink of an eye, and, of what a block vote can accomplish if an ethnic group votes together for one candidate. This is a thing ethnic Europeans have long since ceased to do, so successful has been the campaign of divide and rule, through accusations of “divisive” politics against nationalists.

Indeed had a credible nationalist candidate stood in the by-election you can be sure that the whole media would have swooped down on them demanding to know how they would even pretend, as MP, to represent the diversity of the “whole” community. You can bet nobody will dare to raise this question now in Bradford West, and that territory and the ethnic English it contains, like London’s Tower Hamlets must – in all seriousness, and without a trace of hyperbloe – be considered lost to the Dar al-Islam.

QUESTION: How did George Galloway win Bradford West?

ANSWER: By successfully claiming to be a better Muslim than the Muslim Pakistani Labour candidate in what has always been a safe Labour seat!

Mr Galloway has for years been darkly hinting that he is a secret Muslim, as this video demonstrates, while acting with incredulity towards anyone who would dare to be impertinent enough to ask him to come clean.

It is very important to fully understand what this historic result represents. In response Michael Coren has tweeted, that the “Bradford vote proves UK Muslims care about Islam, not Britain. Culture war – denial increasingly futile.” In fact it means much more than this, and two key things are profoundly and undeniably proven by this result.

The first, and here I am thinking of the incredulity that greeted Kent Ekeroth from all sides over the subject in this interview posted by Eeyore earlier today, is that this result must finally dismiss any last vestige of skepticism over the reality that Europe is being Islamised.

It is important to be clear. A white Scotsman born a Roman Catholic, has just won a respounding victory in Europe against a Pakistani Mulsim Labour favourite, precisely because he convinced the local populace that he was a more active/pious/true Muslim than the person he was against. This is Islamisation crystallizing politically before our very eyes, in inglorious technicolour.

The left wingers did what has always worked in the past, and are now scratching their heads in incredulity and astonishment. They accused everyone else of racism, but then played the race card with consumate skill. To them, on paper at least, their candidate in the safe Labour seat, was perfect. A locally born 33-year old barrister and Pakistani “Muslim”, Imran Hussein,  who had chaired the local Labour party for years, and was deputy leader of the council.

There was one crucial difference, Mr Hussein is a moderate Muslim, a secular Muslim, a reform Muslim, that is, not a real Muslim at all.

Just like the French “Muslim” paratroopers killed by Mohamed Merah in France only two weeks ago, that are supposed, in the ignorant minds of liberals, to refute the self-evident truth that Merah was driven by Islam.

Because what Mr Galloway did – in a constituency in which he had never set foot before – against a Labour party with 100 times his financial resources, was simply to post, with the use of the electoral roll, the following letter through the letterboxes of the Muslim households of Bradford West, a week before the polls opened:

I have been increasingly angered by the dishonest and desperate efforts of the Labour campaign for Imran Hussein, to deceive you about your vote. You should vote for him because he is a “Muslim” they say, and because he is of Pakistani background. … God KNOWS who is a Muslim. And he KNOWS who is not. Instinctively, so do you.

The second thing this thumpingly declares, is a deafening clarion call against the repeated shibboleth of the entire political establishment of Europe, that criticism of Islam must necessarily be racist in character.

the letter that won Bradford West

In the public sphere the issue of Islam is not religious, not ideological, not one of a dangerous foreign dogma that seeks to dominate wherever it goes – so they keep telling us. It is one of identity, victimisation, colour, and the powerless being repressed by the racial bigotry of ethnic Europe.

If that had even a modicum of truth in it, Labour’s sure-fire bet would have come off handsomely, and Mr Hussein would now be preparing to take his seat in Westminster.


It is now beyond denial that Islam has nothing whatsoever to do with race and only does so from the Muslim’s side when it is a convenient stick with which to beat conscessions out of the foolish European kuffar.

Finally, spare a thought for the likes of Matthew Goodwin, who is regarded as Britain’s supposed foremost authority on political extremism. Naturally, like his colleagues Europe-wide he is a committed Left-winger, obsessed with “Rightist-under-the-bed” plots, and the imminent certainty of a far-Right attempt to take over Europe through the barrel of a gun.

If the BNP win 40 votes in a parish council by-election it is the end of the world, 12 members of the EDL protest outside a chip shop and it is empirical proof that a Breivik copy-cat is just hours away from striking evil in the heart of Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

Because it is the duty, of people like him and his colleagues, to warn us of the intense dangers of political extremism and the fascist ideologies that are inexorably tightening their grip.

You can guarantee that for the next week, just like the last week when little Jewish girls were being gunned down in the streets of France, Goodwin and all his kind in politics, media, and the police, will be nowhere to be seen.


OIC’s Sec-Gen Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu would agree.

The Murderer Merah as a Victim and Hero

By Manfred Gerstenfeld

Politically correct European elites and many Muslims have jointly created the perception that all Muslims are victims of the West. Consistent flawed reasoning and false arguments have made this possible.

On the basis of the fake ‘victimhood’ platforms created over the years, whitewashers of the murderer Mohamed Merah are constructing new false images. It is difficult to deny that the three French soldiers, a Jewish teacher and three children whom he killed are victims. Once having paid tribute to them, whitewashers began to turn the brutal murderer into a victim as well.

Among the most intelligent Merah apologists is Tariq Ramadan, a Geneva-born Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford. He first whitewashed Muslim anti-Semite Merah’s worldview. He eloquently wrote that “Merah was a misguided youngster in whose thought there were no values of Islam or racist and anti-Semitic ideas.” The next step was to turn Merah into a victim. In Ramadan’s words, Merah was “a poor guy, guilty and to be condemned undoubtedly, even if he himself was a victim of a social order which had already condemned him and millions of others to a marginality and a non-recognition of his statute of citizen with equal rights and chances.”1 Ramadan thus transformed Merah into a non-racist, non- anti-Semitic victim of society, whose ideas had nothing to do with any Muslim current.

FOX NEWS: SSgt. Robert Bales v. Maj. Nidal Hasan — a breathtaking hypocrisy


Two serving US soldiers go on gun rampages which result in the death of innocents.

Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is a veteran of three Iraqi tours and was serving on his fourth Afghan tour when he snapped. Throughout his career he has probably contributed to the saving of many, many Muslim lives. Twenty times the number of infidels (read, supposed comrades-in-arms) no doubt, that Major Nidal Hasan shot dead at Fort Hood.

Hasan is likely to seek a defense of “Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder” even though he, unlike Bales, has never seen active service. In contrast, Bales is to be charged with war crimes, which have irreparably inflamed Afghani/US tensions; whereas the Pentagon – at the White House’s insistence – has classified the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence”.

In other words while Hasan screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he pumped round after round into his colleagues, he was being no different than a disgruntled postal worker. And crucially, as this Fox News video confirms, the media has happily collaborated in “de-contextualising” the one case while insistently and pointlessly contextualising the other.

So in the desperate search for any “motive” that might explain these horrific incidents, the fact that Hasan had business cards on him saying, “Soldier of Allah” which he had printed up before his killing spree: is not deemed in the slightest bit relevant. But the fact that Bales sought a life in the Services after his business went belly-up over a decade ago? Ah there’s all the explanation you need…

“No one is stating the obvious. France has been occupied all over again.”

There is a very, very powerful essay over at Darren Greenfield’s blog comparing how and why Jewish children were hunted down and killed in France in the past, and how and why they are being so now.

from Sultan Knish

The New Nazis

There was a time when Jewish children were hunted down and killed in France. Their killers believed themselves to be members of a superior group that was destined to rule the world and enslave or exterminate members of inferior groups. The cowardice and appeasement of the French authorities allowed them to operate freely, to kill Jews and launch attacks on other countries.

What was then is now again. The occupying army doesn’t wear uniforms, it wears keffiyahs. It doesn’t speak German, it speaks Arabic. It doesn’t believe that it is superior for reasons of race as much as for reasons of religion. It does not view all others as Untermenschen, but as infidels. It looks forward not to a thousand year Reich, but to a thousand year Caliphate.

Mohammed Merah did not chase down a French-Jewish seven year old girl, put a gun to her head and pull the trigger because he came from an economically depressed area or any of the other media spin. He was only doing what Muslims had been doing to non-Muslims for over a thousand years. He didn’t do what he did because he was “radicalized”, he did it because he became a fully committed Muslim.

It won’t end with taking down one man and it won’t end with Jewish children. When your ideology believes that it is in a zero-sum struggle with the rest of the world and that membership means that you are a superior breed of human being because you worship the Fuhrer or Allah, then it won’t stop. It won’t ever stop. Not until the figurehead is toppled, the creed is humiliated and the supermen are shown to be cowards, neurotics, pedophiles, insecure men dressing up their weaknesses in power fantasies.

Between all the non-stop coverage, the expressions of grief, the political pandering, no one is stating the obvious. France has been occupied all over again. Once again the occupation has been carried out with the consent of the authorities who have decided that cowardice is the only way. Vichy France has become Vichy Europe, Vichy America, Vichy Australia, where the blatant appeasement is disguised as honor, treason is portrayed as responsible leadership and collaboration in the mass murder of your own people is never acknowledged as such…

…That simple undeniable fact is denied by government, in every university and in every center of culture. And every one of those deniers has blood on his hands.

EDL documentary I – My Hometown Fanatics (Stacey Dooley Investigates)

February saw the broadcast in the UK of two separate in-depth documentaries taking the English Defence League (EDL) as their theme.

Long overdue, these programs both shared two particular characteristics. First, an almost allergic unwillingness to square up to or cite the easily-verifiable realities of Islamic doctrine, in any way. Second, an attempt by the respective filmmakers to use both editorializing and film-editing to present a slanted picture often at considerabe odds with the facts.

The first program was a childish, bordering on the infantile, effort by the BBC which purported to cover the subject of extremism in Britain in general, and Luton in Bedfordshire in particular; which is the hotbed of Islamic radicalism that gave birth to the EDL.

BBC3’s Stacey Dooley, a young lady clearly not recruited into documentary making because of her brains, failed to draw any evidence-based conclusions in her “examination” of both Islamism, and the English Defence League (EDL); which originated in her home town.

Dooley has considerable experience as a documentary maker and the format of her “investigations” are identical. They consist of the naive and ditsy Stacey being confronted with very serious issues indeed, in order to do little more than present her shallow emotional responses to the matter in question. That’s it. Simply, she doesn’t make films about issues, she uses issues to make films about herself.

However, no matter how hard the program-makers might have tried, in typical BBC fashion, to obscure the truth: much of the footage speaks volumes about the reality of life in Luton; and will prove eye-opening to many international viewers about what many working-class areas in England are like.

But some of the more laughable scenes include:

  • Stacey putting on a niqab to “understand” how Muslim women feel… While ignoring the issues of choice, force and consent; let alone honour killings and gender segregation; which are inherent in Islam.
  • Trying for the entire program to get an interview with the leader of the EDL, Tommy Robinson. Then, having succeeded in doing so spending all their time telling him about her views on a subject she knows nothing about (rather than asking him any questions and listening to his answers).
  • Not covering the question of the demographic replacement of native Britons in Luton by South Asians, as anything other than (a) completely normal, or (b) absolutely wonderful.
  • Taking at face value the pronouncements on Islam from individuals who clearly have a very strong vested interest in presenting a particular and distorted picture. And the usual crop of Muslims who do not even know the content of their own religion. (e.g. Islam “condemns the killing of the innocent”. Yes it does, but it also defines the unbeliever as necessarily guilty.)
  • Not confronting preposterous statements and situations. A particularly breathtaking segment is where a community leader says that none of the remaining native residents have complained about the call to prayer being broadcast through loudhailers in their former neighborhoods. Hmmm… what always happens to people who complain about Islam?
  • To say nothing of the young Muslim lad chatting up Stacey being presented as indicative of the community’s normalcy. I wonder what response a male non-Muslim program maker trying to pick up a Muslim girl would have elicited?
  • Dooley also chides Tommy Robinson as unreasonable for wanting to end any discussion premised on accepting the imposition of Sharia in his country (!): this while he and Dooley are being physically intimidated by “youths” because they are talking publicly and critically about Islam; and despite this, she insistently repeats the assertion that only a “tiny, tiny” minority of Muslims are extremists. (For the record, repeated surveys have pegged support for Sharia amongst Britain’s Muslims at 60%.)

Dooley’s final conclusion suggests that what is at fault in Luton, is “ignorance” as ignorance causes extreme feelings…

Sure Stacey, because people only hate Nazism until they find out more about it.

Though “My Home Town Fanatics” inadvertently reveals much about modern Britain there is an enormous amount that it deliberately conceals. Here’s footage from Leicester for example, a town slightly further down the Islamic demographic path than Luton, to give you an idea of what I mean.



The Arab winter of fundamentalist delight


Take the time to read Barry Rubin’s latest: When Romanticism Trumps Reason You Get Radical Chic Catastrophes

To put it in one sentence, what made the Middle East different from every other place in the world is that there the Nazi collaborators won. They weren’t just clients or students of the German national socialists but rather on an equal footing, with parallel ideas of their own. These included hatred of the West, desire to commit genocide against the Jews, belief that a repressive regime was best able to achieve progress, a willingness to fight for total victory rather than compromise, and similar characteristics.

What makes this evaluation incredibly timely is that the “Arab Spring’ is not changing this tradition but merely continuing it. The radicals defeated the moderates in the 1930s and early 1940s but were set back by their foolish alliance with the Axis. They then came back in the late 1940s and the 1950s to wipe out the moderates completely, seizing power in most of the Arab world and intellectual hegemony in all of it. The nationalist radicals also suppressed their old Islamist partners

There is nothing in the Middle East to be joyful about, other than Israel still existing as a Jewish state despite the odds. The Arabs/Muslims of the region are so deep in the hole, that even when they’re looking up, they’re still seeing down. The region is being set up for a major conflagration, and the near sighted, ignoramus West is in part to blame. KGS

Arab Spring:conference, don’t be afraid of political Islam

Director of American Studies Centre, acid test after elections

(ANSAmed) – ROME – People must not be frightened by election results in Tunisia and Morocco, which have seen victories for Islamic parties like Ennadha and Justice and Development, but must watch closely to see what the parties are able to do. This, in short, is the message sent out yesterday at the end of a study day dedicated to the Arab Spring and the future of Euro-Mediterranean partnership, which was organised by the French embassy in Italy and by the Ecole Francaise de Rome.

“Slogans such as ‘Allah is the solution’ should not scare anyone,” said the director of the American Studies Centre, Karim Mezran, in his speech. “The solution now is no longer Allah. From now on they are the solution”. Once they have been democratically elected, Mezran said, “exponents of Islamic parties will have no more alibis. They will no longer be able to keep hiding behind a slogan but will instead need to answer to the people who have elected them”.

The best consequence that the Arab uprisings have so far produced is to “bring Islam out into the open”, he added. Now, Mezran believes, those elected must show what they can do and in which direction they intend to go. For this reason “we must not be afraid”. The issue now, if anything, is to understand what Europe and the West are able to achieve. So far, they have done almost nothing, according to the EU’s special representative for the southern Mediterranean region, Bernardino Leon.

“Europe and the West have been unable to respond swiftly to this political and social earthquake within the Arab world. Now Europe must act, providing economic help for countries going through a period of transition”. For this reason, Leon continued, “in the next two months new task forces will leave for Jordan, Morocco and Egypt, and perhaps even Libya”.

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 →

Video shows children of killed Taliban fighters being trained to kill our troops

I will be looking for this actual video. Any help appreciated. Anyone want to bet when the flotilla will sail to end this kind of apartheid and human rights abuses? Bookies are giving odds of 1000,000:1 for never.

From The Mirror:

Taliban train children as young as three Taliban train children as young as three

Taking aim with AK-47 machine guns – these are children of Taliban “martyrs” being trained to replace their fathers.

The chilling video was shot at an Al Qaeda camp where boys as young as THREE are turned into trained killers ready to wage war on ­British soldiers.

Taliban train children as young as three

It shows how, in the wake of its leader Osama Bin Laden’s death in May, his terror group is brainwashing a new generation of child soldiers. British commanders in Afghanistan say children are increasingly used as suicide bombers and human shields during battles.

In the most ­disturbing sections of the video children appear anxious and unhappy as they are trained with guns. The film also shows a “dentist” pulling a child’s back tooth out with a pair of pliers for an ­initiation ritual. 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 →

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 →
