Brotherhood-linked student group turning Canadian schools into mosques

By Farzana Hassan

Mississauga, now Canada’s sixth-largest city, is home to one of the largest concentrations of Muslim students in Canada.

This is why in seventeen out of Mississauga’s nineteen high schools, Muslim students associations are demanding autonomy on holding congregational prayers on Friday and on choosing who delivers the sermons.

The Peel Board of Education has recently ruled that only six approved sermons could be delivered during Friday prayers, ones that are consistent with the board’s values of honesty, cooperation and inclusion. But the students now wish to regain control.

Currently these efforts in Mississauga are being partially led by Shahmir Durrani, who in fact is not in high school but reportedly attends the University of Toronto at Mississauga. They insist on the sermon being drafted by the students.

One of the imams who is on the Peel Board’s Faith Leaders Network, Omar Subedar, has even previously condoned wife battery, even though he now claims to advocate equality for Muslim women.

School prayers began cropping up about ten years ago, ironically around the same time when former premier Dalton McGuinty banned sharia courts from Ontario. The Toronto Sun first reported on prayer services happening at Valley Park Middle School in east Toronto in 2011, but the practice has proliferated since then.

Now the Peel Board will have to decide by December 12 whether to permanently change these rules so the students have greater control of the content of the sermons and the imams.

This raises many concerns. School boards must treat all religions equally. However, these very strident Islamist demands for communal religious practice create inequality, as other faiths do not insist on such public displays of religiosity. By default, a political and orthodox form of Islamism is taking root within our schools.

Some of the activists pursuing this cause show no loyalty to Canada, a nation they say practices systematic Islamophobia. At a recent Mississauga school board meeting on the topic, an online video shows a number of these attendees even refused to stand for O Canada.

A typical congregational prayer would have women at the back, and menstruating women would be excluded outright. This would violate board gender policies, not to mention Canadian values.

MSAs may tout this as a broad religious rights issue, but congregational prayer is best observed at the mosque. No religion should be allowed to mobilize itself in such a political way on school property. Schools should be free of the kind of religious preferences that by default are happening in Mississauga and potentially in other parts of Canada.

No one is stopping Muslims from praying at their mosques, and protocol allows great flexibility of time and venue in observing prayers. It is not as if these students will be barred from discharging their religious obligations if they are not allowed to pray together on Friday. Their insistence on organizing themselves in this fashion on school property shows the political nature of this issue.

Canada justifiably proscribes school-sponsored prayer for reasons of freedom of conscience. Although the MSA’s prayer services would not qualify as school-sponsored, they would certainly be seen as sanctioned by the boards. Many Muslim students unwilling to participate in Friday prayers or sermons may indeed feel pressured to do so, which again violates the board’s policy of ensuring freedom of conscience.

It is this policy which overrides all other considerations, and it is what the Peel Board must bear in mind when making its decision about MSA prayer demands.


Yes, the MSA – now operating in high schools throughout North America – is a Muslim Brotherhood-founded organization with many terrorist alumni.

Toronto: Muslim neurosurgeon killed physician wife days after she filed for divorce

Last weekend, after a busy day at the Ontario Medical Association council meeting, physician Elana Fric-Shamji settled in for a meal with some of her colleagues.

Dinner attendees described the 40-year-old doctor and mother of three as being in a vibrant, joyful mood. She told entertaining stories, shared her excitement over a recent joke tweet of hers that went viral and was published in media outlets.

And she volunteered some difficult news: She had filed for divorce the previous day.

“She openly discussed her impending divorce and chose to look at it as ‘a new beginning,’ ” said Darren Cargill, a fellow doctor also attending the OMA council weekend, where she was happy and “even giddy at times.”

Six days later, at a press conference late Friday night, Toronto police announced Fric-Shamji’s body had been found near the underpass of a bridge beside the West Humber River in Vaughan.

Her husband — the father of her kids and a neurosurgeon with Toronto Western Hospital — has been charged with first-degree murder.

Mohammed Shamji, 40, made a brief court appearance at Old City Hall Saturday morning. Dressed in a white prison jumpsuit, Shamji stood in the prisoners’ box looking nervous and solemn. At one point, he glanced over his right shoulder to family members seated in the gallery.

He was remanded into custody until his next court appearance Dec. 20. Shamji’s lawyer, Liam O’Connor, declined to comment.

The couple’s children are currently with Fric-Shamji’s mother, according to police.

Toronto homicide investigator Det.Sgt. Steve Ryan told reporters police have spoken to witnesses and believed there had been an altercation in the couple’s home.

The discovery of the body came after Fric-Shamji was reported missing; her mother had reportedly not heard from her since Wednesday, and she didn’t show up to work at Scarborough General Hospital on Thursday or Friday morning. Shamji’s husband did not report her missing, according to police.

On Thursday afternoon, York Regional Police were called to a bridge beside the West Humber River where the body of a woman had been discovered. A post-mortem autopsy in Toronto Friday confirmed Fric-Shamji’s identity.

According to police, she was strangled and suffered blunt force trauma of some kind.

Friday night, at a coffee shop near Lakeshore Rd. E. and Highway 10 in Mississauga, Mohammed Shamji was arrested without incident. Early Saturday, police had sealed off the couple’s North York home as they awaited a search warrant.

Dr. Lesley Barron, an Ontario general surgeon, met Fric-Shamji for the first time last weekend, at the OMA council where she was a Toronto district delegate.

At dinner, the two discussed work, patients and Fric-Shamji’s pending divorce.

“We discussed that sometimes divorce is a good thing,” Barron said. “She said a weight was lifted off her now she had decided to go ahead with leaving her husband.”


Mohammed had other thoughts.

Canada deporting Muslim terrorist back to the U.S.

Jason Pippin was an idealistic 18-year-old when he went to a conference in Dearborn, Michigan and heard a speech about how the Indian army was treating Muslims in the disputed Kashmir region.

Believing it was his religious duty to help, the Muslim convert made his way to a camp in Pakistan run by Lashkar-e-Tayiba (LeT), an armed Islamist group that staged cross-border attacks against Indian forces.

Since then, the Toronto resident has disavowed extremism. He testified as a prosecution witness at a terrorism trial and has helped de-radicalize two former members of the terror group that plotted to bomb downtown Toronto.

But his militant youth has now come back to haunt him: he was recently ordered deported from Canada to the United States on the grounds he was a former LeT member and had engaged in subversion by force of the Indian government.

“In 1996, at the age of 18, Mr. Pippin went to Pakistan to engage in jihad,” the Immigration and Refugee Board wrote in its ruling. “He wanted to protect Muslims who were being victimized by Indian authorities. This idealistic goal, however, required him to potentially kill Indian soldiers.”

The case, which has gone unreported until now, touches on an issue likely to become more widespread as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant continues to suffer losses: what to do with ex-foreign fighters.

A U.S. citizen married to a Canadian, Pippin is not facing ant criminal charges but immigration authorities brought a case against him to the IRB alleging he was inadmissible to Canada because of his past militancy.

During two days of hearings held in Toronto in February, the 39-year-old spoke at length about his transformation from a trained jihadist who thought the 9/11 attacks were justified to a de-radicalization advocate.

After converting at age 14, Pippin said he became enamored with the idea of fighting in Bosnia. He said the “Islamic legal arguments” he was taught portrayed it as an obligation because Muslims there were being oppressed.

He missed his chance when the Bosnian conflict ended in 1995 but after meeting a conference speaker who invited him to Pakistan, he made his way from his Atlanta home to the compound of Markaz Dawat-ul Irshad. The hardline Islamic preaching group, based near Lahore, sent him by bus to a camp run by its armed wing, the LeT.

Days at the camp were a mix of indoctrination, military training and intestinal illness, he said. Eventually he was sent to the Indian border but nothing was happening and winter was coming so after three months he decided to go home.

He soon began raising money for a return journey with two friends. They arrived in April 1997 and Pippin was sent to the town of Kotli but once again he become frustrated. He realized that, because of the language barrier and the LeT’s suspicion of foreigners, he would never be allowed to fight in India.

He left Pakistan in August and traveled instead to Yemen to study Arabic, theology and literature, he testified. He returned to the U.S. in the summer of 1999 and became even more radicalized following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, buying into the argument they were justified and the victims were “collateral damage.” He also began to view Arab rulers as “apostates” who were not “legitimate Muslims” because they governed according to manmade laws.

In 2003, while living in California, Pippin was approached by an American extremist. Ahmad Abousamra wanted to know where he could go for training in Yemen. Pippin gave him names of people who might be able to help, unaware that Abousamra’s objective was to fight U.S. forces in Iraq.

Although he denied ever being a member of the LeT, which in 2008 conducted the deadly Mumbai terrorist attack, the IRB ruled he was “fully committed to the group” and was willing to risk his life fighting Indian forces. “The fact that he made two trips to Pakistan further underscores his high level of commitment to the LeT.”

The CBSA has not yet removed him to the United States and he remains in Toronto.

Canada: Port Coquitlam imam found guilty of 2013 sexual assault

Source: Port Coquitlam imam found guilty of 2013 sexual assault

A Port Coquitlam man has been found guilty of sexual assault stemming from events that took place in 2013 at the Masjid Al-Hidayah and Islamic Cultural Centre.

According to the judge’s ruling, during his trial, physician Saadeldin Bahr, who is known as Dr. Saad and was imam of the PoCo mosque, told the court that semen found in the victim’s vagina could have come from a toilet seat, where he had ejaculated earlier in the day. Bahr also said the victim’s DNA, which was found on his boxer shorts, may have been the result of the woman putting her hands down his pants.

In his decision, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Crawford said he did not find Bahr’s assertions credible, noting the cleanliness practices associated with the Muslim religion.

“I have great difficulty with Dr. Bahr’s evidence,” Crawford said Wednesday during his reasons for judgement. “Much of what he said is contrary to fastidious cultural procedures.”

He later added: “He did not clean it up immediately? In his own church?”

The events that led to the charge took place in June 2013, when Bahr had been counselling the woman, known as “Z” in court filings, who was married and struggling with depression. Following afternoon prayers at 1:30 p.m., he and the victim went to a room on the upper floor of the mosque, where the assault took place. The court heard that during the assault, Bahr told the victim she had “a bad curse on you and we have to remove it.”

After the initial encounter, Z went downstairs, where her family was waiting, while Bahr attended to some other business. The judge said he believed testimony that stated Bahr told the family not to talk to the woman and that she was to read verses from the Qur’an.

Crawford noted that because Bahr was an imam in a “position of control, power and authority,” the family complied with his request.

Video surveillance at the mosque showed that approximately 35 minutes later, Bahr returned and took Z back upstairs, where the sexual assault continued. When it was over, the victim said she returned to her family and told her sister what had happened, which led to an altercation between Bahr and the family in the parking lot of the mosque. During the trial, the victim’s husband testified that the imam told the family that Z should not be believed and that “she has a curse and I’ll need to see her again.”

Bahr, who is a married father of five with a degree in medicine that he received in Egypt, denied all of the allegations, saying the sexual assault never took place. He said at no point did he tell the family that Z was cursed and that he did not remove her clothing in the upstairs area of the mosque.

While the judge acknowledged several inconsistencies in the victim’s statements, he said she was a credible witness.


The imam was supposed to be sentenced last week but is pretending to be sick.

Bahr was expected to go before B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Crawford on Friday but instead a note was presented to the court saying he was in hospital. His lawyer confirmed to The Tri-City News that he has been ill, but no other details were provided.

Montreal: ‘Muslim housing project’ will enforce “Islamic values” on non-Muslims

Source: Developer behind ‘Muslim housing project’ in Montreal says anyone with shared values welcome | National Post

MONTREAL – Nabil Warda says he just wants to make it easier for Muslims who believe that paying interest is a sin to buy a house. So last month he had an email sent to members of a suburban Montreal mosque to gauge interest in a housing project with a halal financing arrangement that would skirt the need to pay interest on a conventional mortgage.

Radio-Canada broke news of the “Muslim housing project” planned for Brossard Monday and, within 24 hours, the three main parties in the National Assembly had denounced it.

Premier Philippe Couillard, speaking Tuesday in Morocco, where he is attending the United Nations climate conference, worried non-Muslims would face discrimination.

“Discrimination works in both directions, and so does inclusion; we are in favour of mixed housing for cultural communities and religious groups,” Couillard said.

The proposal to build up to 80 homes became a hot issue in the legislature, where members unanimously adopted a motion Tuesday directing the Minister of Municipal Affairs to inform municipalities that “no real-estate development can be based on religious or ethnic segregation.”

Coalition Avenir Québec leader François Legault, whose party is proposing a values test for all immigrants, described the proposal as an affront to Quebec values.

He said non-Muslims would be welcome to move into his project of prefabricated homes, but they would have to share the values of their Muslim neighbours.

“You don’t drive drunk on the street. If you want to drink alcohol, you drink it in your house,” he said. Women could choose whether to wear the headscarf but they could not walk around in a halter-top and shorts.

“There must be some modesty in the way you dress. We don’t want women living there going half-naked down the streets. We don’t like that,” he said. “If they want to do that, let them go and live in downtown Montreal.”

He has scheduled a meeting Friday evening at the Brossard mosque, the Islamic Community Centre of South Shore, to see if there are enough takers. He said he needs a critical mass of 50 potential buyers before the land can be purchased.

But he has heard opposition closer to home, including from the imam of the Brossard mosque, Foudil Selmoune.

“We are here in Canada. We came of our own will,” Selmoune said in an interview. “Our intention was not to come to isolate ourselves from society or from the community.” He said it would be more constructive for Warda to use his financing proposal to help Muslims buy existing homes rather than creating a Muslim neighbourhood.

Islamic supremacism on the march in the West.

That’s the translation of “coexist” under Islam. Will there be sharia patrols, too?

Why come to the West if you do not intend to live under Western law? To conquer it.

Muslims are the first immigrant group to come to the West with a ready-made model of society and governance that they believe superior to Western secular pluralism. They’re determined to replace the one with the other whatever way possible — through men, media, money and violence.

There is no way to assimilate Muslims into Western secular society unless they renounce the aspects of Islam that are incompatible with Western laws and mores.

It’s happening in the U.S.A. too. As far back as 2004 there were Plans for a Muslim Subdivision in Indiana.

Not to mention the Muslim Enclaves in the U.S., some of which are listed on the left sidebar of this page.

Canada: Hijab police uniforms were politically correct publicity stunts; no demand from Muslim officers

Source: EXCLUSIVE: Hijab police uniforms were politically correct publicity stunts; no demand from Muslim officers – The Rebel

Earlier this year I shared with you exclusive documents from the RCMP regarding its rollout of the official uniform hijab, showing that the final product was rushed after all prototypes failed testing.

 

We also looked into other police departments that have taken similar action, and found that political correctness rather than officer need has been the driving force.

After the Edmonton Police Service unveiled its uniform hijab, the Calgary Police Service, despite having no requests for it and no known female Muslim police officers, wanted to get in on the action itself, setting in motion a process to include hijabs in the uniform for “recruitment” purposes.

In an email to a CPS representative, an Edmonton staff sergeant said that they needed to get their policies “up to 2015, if you know what I mean.”

In fact, as media outlets were looking into police hijabs, a CPS communications staffer said that it was a “great national story to have our voice in!”

Politically correct policing has become the norm in Canada, with some departments focused on progressiveness rather than law and order.

Toronto Islamist: “It is certainly possible to apply Shariah in the North American society”

Taha Ghayyur – creepy sharia pusher

Creeping sharia defined.

Source: “It is certainly possible to apply Shariah in the North American society” – CIJNews English  h/t Jihad Watch

Taha Ghayyur, a Toronto Muslim activist and a board member of DawaNet, believes that the Islamic Law can be gradually implemented in North America.

“The principles of Shariah are universal and are not bound by the limitations of time and culture.

It is certainly possible to apply Shariah in the North American society only if three conditions are fulfilled:

  • One, when an environment is developed, provisioned with preventative measures, that is conductive to a just and productive lifestyle, which is often not compatible with a consumer lifestyle.

  • Two, if the Shariah laws are implemented gradually, accompanied by continuous public education and training on the importance of justice, freedom, and one’s purpose on this earth, the way it was revealed and practiced, as a strategy of pre-crime social reform, over a period of twenty three years at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the first generation of Muslims.

  • Three, if the punishments in the Shariah are given their due place, only to be used as a last resort, and not to be practiced in isolation from the other major objectives of the Shariah.

“If a comprehensive approach to Shariah is not adopted then one may expect to witness horrific images of extremist, selective, and literal application of the Islamic text, the likes of which we have witnessed in recent times.


Sharia is horrific wherever it is practiced. Be sure Ghayyur – along with all the other Saudi-funded front groups – is working hard to implement the sharia in North America.
