Why won’t U.S. authorities shut down the Sharia Academy of America (noted here)? via Outremont cancels Muslim group’s reservation at community centre | Montreal Gazette.
Plans for a Muslim graduation ceremony at a community centre in Outremont were cancelled Saturday evening after the borough cancelled the reservation.
The borough of Outremont borough issued a press release, saying it had made the decision following “disturbing information” broadcast on the TVA Nouvelles network Friday.
The network’s investigative show J.E. said two fundamentalist imams — Salah Assawy and Omar Shahin — were hosting the Sharia Academy of America, which now goes by the name Mishkah, where diplomas were to be awarded in islamic studies.
In the statement, borough mayor Marie Cinq-Mars said she asked borough managers to cancel the reservation because the presence of controversial leaders mentioned in the television report was “unacceptable” and could lead to serious problems.
The rental agreement for a private Muslim school to stage a graduation ceremony and charitable event at the Centre communautaire intergénérational on McEachran Ave. featured the name A.S.I.C., which the borough believes is an acronym for the Association des Sciences Islamiques au Canada.
The name of Mishkah didn’t appear in the rental contract and staff at the centre learned about it during the television report, the borough said in its statement.
Attempts to contact Mishkah officials Saturday by telephone and email were unsuccessful.
On its website, Mishkah calls itself an institute for higher learning founded in 2004 which offers interactive web-based courses and aspires to be “a leading global provider of authentic Islamic knowledge.
“At Mishkah, we are committed to the dissemination of Islamic knowledge from the most authentic sources — the Quran and the Sunnah.”
Outremont’s decision is the latest in a series of incidents targeting members of the Muslim community in the wake of last month’s terrorist attacks in Paris on Charlie Hebdo, the satirical publication which had published cartoons showing the prophet Mohamed.
Montreal police are investigating vandalism at a Muslim high school in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, where the windows of two classrooms were shattered.
Last week, Collège de Rosemont announced its decision to evict an Arabic-language school which had been renting space there after it said it found links on its website to addresses which promote radical Islamic ideology.
Meanwhile, officials in Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve said they will block efforts by self-professed imam Hamza Chaoui from opening a community centre in the east-end borough.

Imam Assawy, of Egyptian origin, is the Secretary General of the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, an organization known for his religious opinions among the radicals.
It calls especially for jihad against the West and it justifies genital mutilation. In its public notice, it allows marital rape:
“As to the question of forcing a wife to have sex, it would not be rape. […] The woman who refuses commits a great sin. “
Beside appear Imam Omar Shahin, a strong proponent of sharia, Islamic law, which provides for the stoning for adultery. He said Muslims should also refuse to obey Western laws.
Shahin also have close links with the Muslim Brotherhood, a brotherhood which advocates a complete Islamization of Western societies.
This is how all governments and organizations should respond to terror-linked Muslims and Islamic groups: shun them…completely. Zero tolerance. Until Muslims fear losing their Western freedoms more than they fear their jihad-waging co-religionists nothing will change.
It should be noted that Shahin is an Arizona-based Imam Who Tells Muslims To Disregard U.S. Laws in Favor of Sharia.
