Canada Considers "National Islamophobia Day"

Authored by Tom Quiggin via The Gatestone Institute,

  • In fact, in Canada, "Islamophobia" comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays and Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims actually have dropped, even as the overall number of hate crimes increased, according to the last Statistics Canada reporting.

  • The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly CAIR CAN) was founded with the mission of supporting its American parent organization, CAIR USA, which in turn was formed to support Hamas. According to the Hamas Covenant, the group is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is listed as terrorist group by the US and Canada. CAIR USA was also listed as a terrorist entity by the United Arab Emirates in 2014.

  • The current Executive Director of CAIR CAN/NCCM, Ihsaan Gardee, has tried to claim that CAIR USA and its Canadian chapter CAIR CAN/NCCM have no relationship. This view is misleading. Most tellingly, CAIR CAN/NCCM made the following statement on its own website in 2003 referring to CAIR USA: "This Washington-based organization is CAIR CAN's parent organization."

  • With respect to the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada, newspapers such as the Toronto Star have printed that there is no such thing as the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada or the US. A 2015 piece by Haroon Siddiqui, the Toronto Star's editorial page editor emeritus, stated that: "Muslim Brotherhood is not a registered entity in Canada or the USA, nor does it have any branch in North America." For this assessment, Siddiqui was quoting Jamal Badawi. What Siddiqui did not mention was that Badawi is a member of the North American Muslim Brotherhood's Shura Council, according to the Muslim Brotherhood itself.

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is being asked by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly known as CAIR CAN) to designate January 29 as a "National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia." If he does, it is an indicator that the Islamists in Canada have succeeded in their program of political expansion and influence to the point of now being able publicly to manipulate the Prime Minister's Office. In fact, in Canada, "Islamophobia" comes in only fourth behind crimes against Blacks, Gays and Jews. Hate crimes against Muslims have dropped, even as the overall number of hate crimes increase, according to the last Statistics Canada reporting.

The event behind this request is the violent attack on the Quebec City mosque of January 29, 2017, in which six people were murdered.

CAIR CAN/NCCM claims in its letter to the Prime Minister that the attack occurred "solely because the victims were Muslim." This statement is doubtful: the mosque has a complicated history, a recent rash of traumatic events, and was initially founded by adherents of the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR CAN/NCCM

CAIR CAN/NCCM was founded with the mission of supporting its American parent organization, CAIR USA, which in turn was formed to support Hamas. According to the Hamas Covenant, the group is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas is listed as terrorist group by the United States and Canada. CAIR USA was also listed as a terrorist entity by the United Arab Emirates in 2014. They described the listing of these groups as including Muslim Brotherhood front groups, proxies and fund raisers.

The current Executive Director of CAIR CAN/NCCM, Ihsaan Gardee, has tried to claim that CAIR USA and its Canadian chapter CAIR CAN/NCCM have no relationship. He has made this claim in media interviews to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and while testifying to the Parliament of Canada. This view is misleading. The US State Department has identified CAIR CAN/NCCM as the Canadian chapter of CAIR USA. CAIR USA has repeatedly claimed that CAIR CAN/NCCM is its "Canadian office." Most tellingly, CAIR CAN/NCCM made the following statement on its own website in 2003 referring to CAIR USA: "This Washington-based organization is CAIR CAN's parent organization." That statement was published as part of its "A Journalist's Guide to Islam."

The Senate of Canada also heard from internationally known Muslim Brotherhood expert Dr. Lorenzo Vidino in May of 2015. In his testimony , Vidino stated that the Muslim Brotherhood has a series of eight to ten front organizations in Canada. Among those he noted were CAIR CAN/NCCM.

THE MOSQUE ATTACK(S) IN QUEBEC CITY

The Quebec City Mosque, also referred to as the Centre culturel islamique de Québec or CCIQ, was attacked on 29 January 2017. The alleged attacker, Alexandre Bissonnette, murdered six people and wounded eight when he opened fire with a rifle on a Sunday evening.

Not just one attack occurred. The mosque has suffered a series of five events, which appear connected. In June of 2016 a pig's head was placed at the front door of the mosque. Three weeks later a pamphlet was distributed around the mosque's neighborhood, which claimed that the mosque was run by the Muslim Brotherhood. The pamphlet also said that the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in Quebec was the Quebec City Mosque. Following that, a blog also stated that the mosque was a Muslim Brotherhood organization. This blog posting was dated July 8, 2016 and it has similar text to what was in the pamphlet distributed around the mosque. The title of the blog was "What is the most serious: a pig's head or a genocide?" The question suggests that the first three incidents are connected. The blog was still active as of January 19, 2018.

The blog also appears to have made an indirect threat to the mosque. The posting stated that:

"If the Grand Mosque of Quebec does not provide formal and verifiable evidence that it repudiated any organizational, financial and ideological ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and its organizations such as the Muslim Association of Canada or others, and if it does not clearly condemn all that these organizations represent, the informed citizens will have to consider the Great Mosque of Quebec, aka Mosque of the capital, aka the Cultural Centre of Quebec, as a home propagating a radical concepts and political Islam."

While this statement of July 2016 does not make a direct violent threat to the mosque, one could believe, especially with the benefit of hindsight, that this posting identifies a threat to the mosque. It does not, of course, say that a violent action will occur if the mosque did not repudiate its Muslim Brotherhood links. The threat, however, is implied; given the two violent events that followed, it seems prescient.

The statement also suggests that the first thee incidents and the shooting, are connected.

As noted, the mosque was then violently attacked in January of 2017, which resulted in the deaths and injuries. On the August 6, 2017, a fifth event occurred in which a car belonging to Mohamed Labidi, the President of the mosque, was burned in a deliberately arson according to police.

THE ORIGINS OF THE MOSQUE

The Quebec City mosque was originally formed by Muslim Student Association, according to its own history. The Muslim Student Association was founded by adherents of the Muslim Brotherhood. The mosque donated money on a yearly basis (2001 to 2010) to the Canadian charity known as the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN). This funding occurred through IRFAN, which the Canada Revenue Agency has stated was set up deliberately to circumvent Canadian law to fund Hamas. This "charity" has since been listed as a terrorist entity in Canada, as it sent tens of millions of dollars of cash and services to Hamas.

One of the leading figures at the mosque is Abdullah Assafiri. He was listed as the "directeur de la formation et de l'animation religieuse au Centre culturel islamique de Québec" (Director of training and religious activity at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre). He also represented the mosque when it interacted with the provincial government.

Mr. Assafiri is also a major leadership figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the Muslim Brotherhood itself. He was listed as the "Masul" or "leader" for Eastern Canada in the North American Muslim Brotherhood's Shura Council organizational list. The list became public as a court document during the Holy Land Relief Foundation terrorism funding trials in the USA.

Mr. Assafiri told the press he normally would have been at the mosque on the Sunday night of the attack, but he did not attend when the shooting occurred because his son had borrowed his car (c'est parce que son fils avait emprunté sa voiture).

With respect to the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada, newspapers such as the Toronto Star, have printed that there is no such thing as the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada or the USA. A 2015 piece by Haroon Siddiqui, the Toronto Star's editorial page editor emeritus, actually reported that:

"Muslim Brotherhood is not a registered entity in Canada or the USA, nor does it have any branch in North America."

For this assessment, Mr. Siddiqui was quoting Dr. Jamal Badawi. What Siddiqui did not mention was that Dr. Badawi is a member of the North American Muslim Brotherhood's Shura Council, according to the Muslim Brotherhood itself. Further, the Muslim Brotherhood has held up Dr. Badawi as a leading and exemplary figure in its education field. Dr. Badawi has also served on the board of directors of both the Muslim Association of Canada and CAIR CAN/NCCM. The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) was also noted as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in Dr. Vidino's 2015 testimony to the Canadian Senate. The MAC website states that the "Muslim Brotherhood remains the truest reflection of Islamic practice in the modern era."

Dr. Badawi was also listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in American based Holy Land Relief terrorism funding trial that had its roots in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Convictions for this trial were obtained in 2008.

CONCLUSIONS

In the case of the Quebec City mosque attack, while it is possible that the victims were attacked solely because they were Muslim, the connected incidents – both before the attack and the online implied threat -- suggests that the motivation for the attack might be somewhat more complicated.

If the "Islamophobia Memorial Day" is declared by the prime minster, it is a clear "indicator and warning" on how far an Islamist mentality has been developed within the corridors of government. It also will further confirm how deeply Prime Minster Trudeau has has continued in his support the Islamist cause on every occasion since his election as a Member of Parliament in 2008.

>>> re: "The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is being asked by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly known as CAIR CAN) to designate January 29 as a 'National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.'"

...so, uh, no offense to the author

but that's a huge effing article, and a huge leap to say "considering," based on what is PURELY a request by a small political activist group that the government -- even by Trudeauian SJW standards -- has not even really acknowledged.

might as well be saying...

"The attack on the Quebec City mosque n which six people were murdered" was perpetrated by "GUESS WHO".

The really ironic thing about the Quebec mosque shooting was that it was a Muslim who shot those people while shouting Allahu Akbar before opening fire and it's a closed court because of that to provide cover for Islam.

Yeah, right..."Islamophobia Day" for Muslims killing other muslims?!!! That's really rich.

FUCK YOU Justin Trudeau.  You are a sellout to the Canadian culture and the foundations of the Canadian way of life.  Canada was create by believing Christians and any outsiders need to accept the Canadian way of life.  You are a piece of shit Justin.  And your father is another rotten piece of garbage, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, may he rot in hell.

Why don't YOU do your research before showing yourself for the fool that you are. The following is directly from a an official government website in the United Kingdom: "Between April 2016 and March 2017 there were 9,179 attendances reported at NHS trusts and GP practices where FGM was identified or a procedure for FGM was undertaken." These are just the ones that were officially identified in one year alone. We can safely say that there are thousands more within the U.K. and all over Europe. As of January 1st 2013, there were 44,467 first and second-generation female immigrants residing in Norway whose country of origin is one of the 29 countries where FGM/C is well documented

I can see what the outcome of Bernie's win would have been:

 

1) "Reparation tax on crackers to hand blacks even more free shit;

2) "Islamophic Tax" on Chrisitans to pay for mosque construction in America;

3) "Snowflake tax" on Deplorables to pay for Therapy Puppies and Safe Spaces for sensitive snowflakes.

Bernie and his [allegedly] crooked wife would come up with lots more I bet. Not to mention his proposed 65% tax on middle class Americans.

This particular donkey sanctuary raised £38.3 million in 2016. They spent around £3.5 of it on human interaction with donkeys program. They have £43.4m in reserves + £30 million in fixed assets. 6 of their employees are making between £80,000-£90,000 per annum. Not too shabby for a donkey sanctuary!

that headline has little grounding in reality. The so called terrorist was a 15 year old  caught up in an attack on his fathers compound. By any definition he was a child soldier. His rights were no doubt violated, the Goverment of Canada was partially responsible, he sued and the Goverment settled likely given the liberal courts in Canada and the outrageous treatment he receive at 50 cents on the dollar.  Yeah the Charter of Rights means something.

15 years old is not a "child". That's just an excuse for not holding people accountable for their own actions.  There are lots of child soldiers in the world who kill for money. They are just as deadly as adults and with time they become adult killers.  

People know right from wrong long before the age of 15.  He killed with knowledge and full intent.

The Charter should not protect murderers and I sincerely doubt that most Canadians want

Right now you can join the Canadian army when you are 16 doofus.  My Dad joined when he was 15 (lied about his age) in 1940.  You are the one with a fucking pant load.  David Farragut was a US naval Midshipman at age 9 and a prize commander at the age of 12.  He served in the US navy for 60 years.

 

Tell us more about your theory of child soldiers are not responsable.

You see, your post is why this site is getting a bad rep as a far right propaganda mouth piece.  The lack of details, truth and relevance in your post is disgusting.

These ZHer's who so love to pat themselves on the back for being so informed rush to give their approval to a post that not only provides scant details, but preys upon the ignorance of the intended audience who give their hearty support for the propaganda they otherwise claim to be wise to.

Wanna play on the Khadr issue Mr. troll?  I do.

Not All of us. 

Just the "Progressive" F-ing idiots, just like the ones in your country.  We all have to battle these complete idiots that would give our countries away to Sharia etc. in a moment if they could, so "we could all just live together and love each other".  The people that push this shit are completely out of it mentally.  They have been completely brain washed by the Globalists that all cultures are the same if we "just try to get along".
