The Montreal Interfaith Conference: An Appeal for Censorship

Censorship of non-Muslims that is. via PIONT DE BASCULE: The Montreal Interfaith Conference: An Appeal for Censorship.

On September 7, 2011, the Dalai Lama, Tariq Ramadan and other personalities are scheduled to speak at the Second Global Conference on World’s Religions after 9/11. The conference is organized in Montreal with the active cooperation of McGill University and the Université de Montréal.

Tariq Ramadan’s mentor, Youssef Qaradawi, states that “We only carry out dialogue with (Christians) in order to find common grounds that serve as a basis for further action.” In two texts, Qaradawi mentions four of these “further actions” that should justify engaging in interfaith dialogue (Priorities GMBDR):

  1. Improving the image of Islam;
  2. Converting Christians;
  3. Rallying Christians against Israel;
  4. Discouraging Christian leaders from supporting fellow Christians involved in conflict with Muslims. Qaradawi mentioned specifically Sudan and the Philippines.

These objectives confirm that interfaith dialogue with Christians is just another front where Tariq Ramadan and the Muslim Brotherhood wage their ideological jihad. It should come as no surprise since scholars endorsed by the Muslim Brotherhood consider that Christianity is a distorted version of a truth exclusively upheld by Islam, their “understanding of Islam” as Ramadan puts it.

Another objective pursued by the Muslim Brotherhood with its “interfaith activities” is to try to gain support from non-Muslims for the censorship of its critics. Various actors in the Muslim world have taken measures to censure those who criticize one aspect or another of their doctrine.

It appears that the interfaith conference scheduled for September 7 in Montreal will just be another attempt to implement this censorship agenda. In its initial press release (May 11, 2011), the Montreal conference organizing committee mentioned that, next September, the following question will be submitted to the participants:

Should violating the sanctity of the scripture of any religion be considered tantamount to violating the sanctity of the scriptures of all religions? (GMBDRParliament of the World’s Religions)

Before the conference has taken place, the answer to this question is already available in a Declaration (article 12.4) endorsed by the Montreal conference organizing committee:

12.4 Everyone has the right not to have one’s religion denigrated in the media or the academia.

Since any criticism can be deemed denigrating, such position would lead to countless legal procedures against the critics of radical Islam if it were to be implemented by Canadian authorities.

Shortly after GMBDR posted the May 11 press release (including the above question) it was removed from the organizing committee’s website.

In Canada, Tariq Ramadan’s partners at the Muslim Brotherhood disseminate Syed Maududi and other authors’ books denigrating religions other than Islam. They advocate that Christianity is a distorted religion. They claim that kafirs (derogatory word for non-Muslims) will go to hell. In Edmonton, Issam Saleh and Walid Najmeddine, two Muslim Brotherhood operatives, have set up an Islamic Studies course (page Acknowledgements) for the Edmonton Public Schools. Yusuf Ali’s Qur’an is one of the books being used for the course. In this book, Jews are described as “apes and swine” (p. 1742). More examples of anti-Jewish stances found in the book are listed in a FrontPage article that was published after the Los Angeles school board decided to pull all its copies of Yusuf Ali’s Qur’an from the shelves of its libraries.

In his book Islam and Buddhism, Harun Yahya, another author endorsed by the Muslim Brotherhood, concludes that Buddhists’ accomplishments are purposeless and that they are “destined for destruction” because their understanding of God and religion is incompatible with Islam. Harun Yahya accuses Buddhists of “associating” false gods with the real one.

Historically, the invocation of this so-called crime of “association” has been the pretext invoked by Muslim scholars to justify the destruction and the eradication of the Buddhist civilization from India, Afghanistan and many other parts of Asia.

In 2004, Tariq Ramadan and Harun Yahya were the main speakers at a conference that Ramadan called the “largest Islamic event in Australia” on his website. (Archives PdeB)

The Muslim Brotherhood wants it both ways. It persists on invoking the freedom of religion to justify its denigrating of non-Muslims, yet it pushes for the censorship of its critics by claiming some bogus right not to be offended.

Freedom of expression implies reciprocity. In a free society, there is no such right as the right not to be offended contrary to what Tariq Ramadan and the organizers of the Montreal conference would like us to believe.

Read it all.

  1. It is muslims that need censored not us. They lie and distort the truth about islam. They think that they are above the law and above God. They need to go back to the middle east where they belong…….

  2. As far as “interfaith dialogue” and playing the harlot with false gods and false prophets goes …

    “I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that you have no participation in her sins, and that you don’t receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4)

    The Gospel of Jesus Christ cannot be compromised by unequal yoking with unbelievers…

    “Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14)

    islam is about as dark as it gets.

    • Very well said Mullah.

      I’ve studied prophecy for years and was convinced 20 years ago, far before the current hyper-awareness of Islam, that it was a religion created by Satan in order to fulfill end of Age prophecies.

      I’m thoroughly convinced of it now.

  3. There is a screening of the film Sacrificial Survivor, The untold Ground Zero mega mosque with Allen West as the guest speaker. To be held in Washington DC on 9/7 11 to 1:30 (free lunch by the way). Anyone close enough to attend, it will be held in The Rayburn Bldg. Rm. B-339. This film will also be shown in NYC at 8 PM Wed. 9/7 Central Park at the Band Shell, 9/9 at Thompkins Sq. Park, 9/10 West Harlem Pier Pk., and 9/13 Washington Sq. park. All showings start at 8 PM..
    The Christian Action Network is responsible for the creation and distribution of this film. If anyone goes to Wash. DC and meets with Congressman West, lucky for you. Tell him we need his voice in this creeping Sharia arena desperately. He seems to be the only politician telling the public the truth about Sharia law and how it is constantly being pushed on us.

  4. This is an attempt to stifle Christianity and preach False doctrines and worship false Gods.

    The Dalai Lama is a complete fraud. He says he is a man of peace, but came out a few weeks ago and admitted he is a Marxist thru and thru.

    God commands in the Holy Bible “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me” and “Do not worship False Gods”

    That is who America is a Christian nation, for which all of these dangerous cults is trying to destroy with their false doctrines and Fraud Leaders like the Dalia Lama.

    You would think the Daila Lama would know better since his parents were brutually murdered by the Red Commie Chinese while still in Tibet, but instead he embraces this doctrine pretending he comes with peace.

    He is full of Satanic lies all while most of Hollywood falls at his feet
    and adores him. What does that tell you about Hollywood??

    • True patriot: Hollywood sucks..and a bunch of bimbos and bimbettes who are history deficient and geo-politically stupid..and also an actor was on abc news stating after the death of Corey Haims: That pedophilia has always been around Hollywood..and he is too scared to name the producer who is complicit.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
