Canada: La Presse article fails to mention terrorist links of Islamophobia report authors

…funded by the Canadian Red Cross. Excerpts via: Point de Bascule Canada

The Islamist background of the National Council of Canadian Muslims, missing from a recent La Presse article

La Presse (Montreal) recently announced the launch of a guide on Islamophobia / Archive.Today by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) for Canadian schools without providing any information regarding the NCCM’s Islamist background. The Winnipeg Free Press and the Calgary Herald (August 27 paper edition, p.C10) made the same announcement in the same manner. This article aims to correct this situation. The Islamic Social Services Association and the Canadian Human Rights Commission partnered with the NCCM to produce the guide and the Canadian Red Cross provided funding. See the last page of the guide for the other credits.


On August 24, La Presse (Montreal) published a text announcing the launch of a guide on Islamophobia for Canadian schools by the National Council of Canadian Muslims, the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Winnipeg-based Islamic Social Services Association. However, the text nowhere mentions the links that exist between the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly CAIR-CAN or CAIR-Canada) and radical Islam since its incorporation in 2000 and even before as CAIR-Montreal. This lack of information deserves to be corrected and that is what we intend to do with this article.

What the notion of “phobia” implies is that those who are accused of “Islamophobia” have an “irrational fear” of some trend or aspect of Islam.

In December 2012, the NCCM (then called CAIR-CAN, CAIR-Canada) accused Point de Bascule of Islamophobia after we criticized Justin Trudeau (then a Liberal leadership contender) for having agreed to address the RIS Islamist convention scheduled to take place later that month in Toronto. Point de Bascule condemned Mr. Trudeau’s decision because the event was being sponsored by IRFAN-Canada whose charitable status had been revoked by the Canada Revenue Agency the year before. IRFAN had lost its status for having transferred many millions of dollars to the terrorist organization Hamas. The very same day our text was published in English, the NCCM retorted that Point de Bascule had an “Islamophobic bias.” If the denunciation of an outfit whose charitable status has been revoked for funding terrorism is not acceptable to the NCCM, nothing short of a complete servility toward Islamists will pass the NCCM test as neither “hateful” nor “Islamophobic.”

On December 15, 2012, five days after the initial Point de Bascule article about IRFAN and Justin Trudeau was published and the news picked up by the National Post and other mainstream media, IRFAN withdrew its sponsorship of the event. After only a few days, what the NCCM had presented as an irrational fear, a phobia, an Islamophobia proved to be a meaningful threat. In 2014, IRFAN-Canada itself was added to Canada’s list of outlawed terrorist groups.

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the NCCM / CAIR-CAN’s parent organization (see ‘parent organization’ p.14). In 2009, the FBI “severed its liaison relationship” with the CAIR after evidence presented in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial demonstrated a relationship between the CAIR and the terrorist organization Hamas. In 2009, Judge Solis also ruled that “The [U.S.] Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR…with Hamas.” (United States of America v. Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development / pp.14-15 of 20).

In Canada in 2014, the RCMP headquarters in Ottawa directed its Manitoba division to dissociate from another NCCM guide that endorsed several Muslim radicals, including Imam Siraj Wahhaj who had advocated converting youth to Islam before inciting them to wage armed jihad in U.S. streets.

Many other positions taken by the NCCM since its beginnings in Montreal in 1996 and its incorporation in 2000 deserved to be mentioned in the La Presse article publicizing the NCCM Islamophobia guide. We have mentioned some of these positions in the following chronology.

Those who would like to know more about the content itself of the Islamophobia guide produced by the NCCM and its partners will read with interest an analysis by Lise Ravary that was published by the Journal de Montréal on August 30 and another one by Barbara Kay in the National Post on September 14.

Highlights of the National Council of Canadian Muslims / CAIR-CAN history

1994 – Washington-based CAIR was founded by three leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), an organization representing Hamas in the United States at that time. One of CAIR’s founders, Nihad Awad, is still in the leadership of the organization today in 2016 as its Executive Director. The article 2 of the Hamas Charter describes the terrorist organization as “one of the wings of the Muslim Brotherhood” in Gaza. The IAP is entity #22 in a list of organizations identified in a 1991 Muslim Brotherhood internal memorandum as being associated with the Brotherhood in the U.S. This memorandum was seized by police and produced for evidentiary purposes in a terrorism trial that led to the convictions of all leaders accused of terrorism financing in 2008.

In this memorandum, the goal pursued by the IAP and the other organizations belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood network in North America is described in no uncertain terms:

Point 4.4 The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions… It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.


Read it all if you need more evidence of CAIR’s terrorist origins and purpose in the U.S. and Canada.

Unsurprisingly, media outlets big and small including Fox News provide free air time to CAIR regularly and never mention their terror links, convictions or deportations.

 

Canada: School lets Muslims skip mandatory music class, violates the sharia

Only Muslims are allowed to skip the class.

TDSB_logo

Source: Mandatory music classes hit a bad note with some Muslim parents – The Globe and Mail  h/t Blazing

When music class begins this week at Toronto’s Donwood Park elementary school, Mohammad Nouman Dasu will send a family member to collect his three young children. They will go home for an hour rather than sing and play instruments – a mandatory part of the Ontario curriculum he believes violates his Muslim faith.

The Scarborough school and the Toronto District School Board originally had offered an accommodation – suggesting students could just clap their hands in place of playing instruments or listen to acapella versions of O Canada – but not a full exemption from the class.

After a bitter three-year fight, however, Mr. Dasu felt he had no other opton but to bring his kids home.

According to documents ob-tained by The Globe and Mail, some parents insist they cannot allow their children to be in the same room where musical instruments are being played. Mr. Dasu, a Koran teacher who sometimes leads prayers at Scarborough’s Jame Abu Bakr Siddique mosque, says he has led the fight on behalf of parents. He has consulted with national Islamic bodies, and requested a letter from the leader of his mosque.

“We here believe that music is haram [forbidden]. We can neither listen to it, nor can we play a role in it,” said the mosque’s imam, Kasim Ingar.

Conceding that Muslims have to adjust when they send their kids to public school, he suggested that some matters, such as teaching music, are beyond debate.

“We do not compromise with anyone on the clear-cut orders and principles conveyed by the Prophet,” said Mr. Ingar, who also leads the Scarborough Muslim Association.

Within Islam, the question of whether Muslims are banned from music is divisive and nuanced. Similar to questions about whether women should wear veils, there is no consensus on the issue.

But Ontario’s primary-school curriculum is unambiguous on music class: It must be taught, without exception, to all primary-school-aged children. Officials at the TDSB say they can only bend the rules to accommodate religious students, but not exempt them.

The Globe used freedom of information laws to access TDSB e-mails on how the issue evolved at Donwood Park, where it first surfaced in 2013.

The released records redact the names of students for privacy reasons, and very few families appear to have been adamant over pulling children from music classes. Early internal e-mails show administrators wanted to find “some common ground.”

But Mr. Dasu, who says he represents many of the parents at the school concerned about the issue, pushed for exclusion for his own children by invoking the prospect of litigation and the religious freedoms clause of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Continue reading

Ontario judge defends Islam as he sentences three Muslims for jihad activities

Suliman Mohamed, Ashton & Carlos Larmond as they appeared in court

Ontario Superior Court Justice Colin McKinnon, in handing down sentences for the surprise guilty pleas, said homegrown terrorism is a virulent form of cancer that needs to be aggressively eradicated, and that the terrorist plans of the three men were a betrayal of the teachings of Islam.

“It is now hoped that they learn the error of their ways and the utter futility of pursuing jihadist terrorist causes, which constitutes a one-way street to inevitable disaster,” the judge told court. McKinnon said pledging allegiance to ISIL is like pledging allegiance to the devil.

Ashton Larmond, the 25-year-old “director” of Ottawa’s cluster network, seemed the most confident in the prisoner’s box, standing up straight away, saying he takes full responsibility, that he’ll learn from his mistakes and that it will never happen again.

Larmond, clean-cut and wearing a suit, was sentenced to 17 years for instructing a person to carry out a terrorist activity. When he walked out of Court Room 30, he smiled and waved to friends in the gallery, then shook his lawyer’s hand firmly. Joseph Addelman wished him good luck.

Addelman told Postmedia that the sentence reflects Larmond’s degree of responsibility, and his guilty plea allowed his followers, twin brother Carlos Larmond and Suliman Mohamed, 23, to get more favourable sentences. Carlos Larmond and Mohamed were each sentenced to seven years.

Carlos Larmond was arrested in January 2015 at a Montreal airport as he was boarding a flight overseas with plans of joining ISIL. He sold his belongings on the Internet before taking a train from Ottawa to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. His descent into extremism was quick and came at the behest of his dominant twin brother. In RCMP wiretaps, Carlos expressed hatred for Imams who preach modern Islam. He said they’re worse than infidels because they tell Muslims to sharpen pencils instead of knives.

Ashton Larmond gave up his street life in Vanier in 2011 when he converted to Islam. He went from ecstasy parties and hip hop to studying an extreme form of Islam, and when his passport was revoked days before a scheduled flight overseas to join ISIL, he grew increasingly frustrated and instead spent his time recruiting others — including and unbeknownst to him, an undercover RCMP agent.

The RCMP’s case against the three men involved wiretap and informant-provided body-wire evidence. That evidence revealed, in particular, disturbing thoughts and plans by the Ottawa network’s director, Ashton Larmond:

  • On the day Michael Zehaf-Bibeau unleashed homegrown Islamist terrorism in Ottawa on Oct 22. 2014, Ashton Larmond said he had bigger plans for his jihadist crew, saying a better strike on soldiers would be to storm Fort Bragg in a cement truck loaded with enough assault rifles and explosives to wage a three-day war against U.S. troops.
  • After seeing a soldier at Tim Hortons, he said he wanted to slit his throat.
  • He is heard telling his twin brother how the attack in a Sydney, Australia, café should have gone down: “You take the head off one of them, then you’re in control.”
  • He tells his twin brother that he knows the police are “afraid of them .. they know our religion very well, this is why they’re scared. Because they know what our religion says about killing and stuff.”
  • He met the undercover police agent in the parking lot of an Ottawa mosque to give him $1,300 in an envelope to book a flight overseas to join ISIL.

Mohamed was the only terrorist who showed emotion in the prisoner’s box, and when asked if he wanted to say anything in court, he wiped away tears as he read a handwritten statement. It was written in pencil and Mohamed’s hands shook as he read.

“It is something I am not proud of and I would like to make amends. My time in custody has reminded me of my Canadian values and who I really am. It has shown me that I do not agree with extremism in any way,” Mohamed told court.


Did anyone ask the judge specifically which teaching of Islam the actions of these three Muslims were a betrayal of? How does the judge separate “homegrown terror” from Islam?

Islam Watch has two posts recently that the judge should read as he is guilty on both accounts. First, Tropes about Islam:

Trope: “A significant or recurrent theme; a motif.” (OED).

“A common or overused theme or device.” (Mirriam-Webster).

In the west there are a number of such tropes about Islam that are widely used. What unites all of them is that they are false. Some are bare-faced lies, others are more subtle and contain various grains of truth within the myths and falsehoods. What follows is a discussion and a few examples of some of these.

The “Islam is the religion of peace” trope.

This is the Daddy of them all and so widely used that it has become a mantra.

It is a sub-trope of the “It’s nothing to do with Islam!” trope (below), but I could not avoid treating it separately given it’s prominence.

It is regularly and reliably trotted out as the first, almost Pavlovian, response to an Islamic terror attack which kills westerners.

Second, Stop Running Away from the Quran:

…there is no shortage of offensive commands in the Quran. Pick your favorite outrage, or select from the list below, all of which are criminal acts in the U.S.:

  • Chopping off hands of petty thieves (Surah 5:38)
  • Death for apostasy (Surah 4:89)
  • Inequality of women (Surahs 2:282 and 4:11)
  • Paradise promised for those who “kill and are killed.” (Surah 9:111)
  • Perpetual warfare against non-Muslims (Surahs 2:216 and 9:123)
  • Polygamy (Surah 4:3)
  • Rape of captives (Surah 33:50)
  • Sex with young girls (Surah 65:4)
  • Treating women as “tilth” – marital rape (Surah 2:223)
  • Wife beating (Surah 4:34)

Pretty sure they’d all be crimes in Canada too. Unless you are Muslim.

Canada: Police submit, allow Muslim women Mounties to wear hijab

Islamization and sharia continue unimpeded in Canada.

via: RCMP allows Muslim women Mounties to wear hijab – Politics – CBC News

The Mounties have adopted a new uniform policy to allow female Muslim officers to wear the hijab.

Scott Bardsley, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, confirmed that RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson recently approved an addition to the uniform policy to allow women officers to wear the head scarf “if they so choose.”

Bardsley said the new policy is intended to better reflect diversity in Canadian communities and to encourage more Muslim women to consider the RCMP as a career option.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Julie Gagnon said current policy, which came into effect in January 2016, requires an “exemption” to wear the hijab from the commissioner, the only senior officer permitted to approve faith-based accommodations.

Gagnon said the RCMP developed a hijab for applicants or serving female members of the Islamic faith, reflecting “the diversity of the RCMP’s workforce.” It underwent rigorous testing to ensure the design meets “the highest standards of officer safety.”

She said the RCMP currently has no members requesting to wear the hijab on duty.

The only other religious or cultural item allowed is the turban for male officers.

Bardsley said the RCMP will be the third Canadian police force to adopt the hijab policy, behind Toronto and Edmonton police services. Police services across the U.K., Sweden and Norway, and some in U.S. states, have also adopted similar policies.


Meanwhile, the growing “diversity” in Canada has resulted in at least 180 “Canadians” who have traveled abroad to fight with ISIS, other Islamic terrorist groups.

How many mothers of the 180 wear hijab?

Canada: Muslim steals plane, crashes into mall … not terror-related

Run along. Nothing to see here.

Source: RCMP confirm Peterborough plane crash was subject of national security investigation | Globalnews.ca

A day after Global News reported the RCMP was investigating national security aspects related to the stolen plane that crashed in Peterborough, Ont. last week, the RCMP has confirmed its national security enforcement unit was involved in the investigation.

The national police force also said it found no threat to national security, no motive for the theft and declined to provide an explanation as to how a 20-year-old Markham man with mental health issues who “acted alone,” managed to steal the plane undetected and crash it in a major Ontario city.

Mohammad Hassan Chaudhary of Markham, Ont. was killed after the small Piper Tomahawk aircraft he allegedly stole from the Markham Airport smashed into the ground just before 1:30 a.m. Aug. 12 near the Landsdowne Place mall. Chaudhary’s father told Global News his son lived with schizophrenia and other mental health issues.

The RCMP released a statement Friday afternoon that said the three police services had been “working together” to investigate the crash and confirmed the Ontario RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) had been involved in the investigation.

A source close to the investigation told Global News something was found in the wreckage that concerned police, while the owners of the stolen Piper Tomahawk said their plane was full of fuel and was capable of flying up to five hours.

An airport operator said that the pilot would have to know something about aeronautics to take off and fly 100 kilometres, though Chaudhary’s father said that his son didn’t have a “single minute” of flight training.

It’s also apparent that the RCMP’s story changed when people starting discussing it. Watch as I take you through why this doesn’t add up.

Montreal: Muslim woman runs over two police officers while shouting “Allah”

On August 11, 2016, a woman shouting “Allah” drove over two officers from the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (Police Service of the City of Montreal), reported TVA Nouvelles.

The officers were standing outside a police station in North Montreal when the incident occurred.

“A lady in her 40’s made a dangerous driving manoeuvre at the police in Arrondissement de Montreal-Nord 39” said police commander Jonathan Martel.

The woman tried to speed away after hitting a police car. According to information obtained by TVA News, the woman reportedly shouted “Allah”.

“According to her behaviour and her words, one could think about an incident of a terrorist nature, but after investigation it was confirmed that there was no link to terrorist activity”, the commander assured.

The prosecutor requested a psychological evaluation of the woman who is facing charges of dangerous driving, assault and uttering threats. The woman remains in detention pending the investigation.


Just in…another Muslim attack in France: Strasbourg stabbing: Jewish rabbi knifed by man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ in daylight attack

A Jewish rabbi has been stabbed by a knifeman in a sickening broad daylight attack.

The stabbing took place in the Jewish quarter of the north east French city of Strasbourg.

The attacker was restrained by a witness before being arrested by police following the broad daylight attack in the middle of the street.

As reported by French news site DNA, several witnesses heard the man shout Allahu Akbar when carrying out the assault.

Sources close to the investigation say terrorism has already been ruled out, with the attacker thought to have mental health problems.


RT reports:

According to Strasbourg’s chief rabbi, Rene Gutman, the attacker had carried out a similar assault six years ago on a Jew in the city. He was arrested on that occasion and placed in a psychiatric hospital, the France Bleu publication reports.

h/t Jihad Watch who writes:

And clearly the psychiatric treatment didn’t cure him of the will to wage jihad.


Muslims are afflicted to a significantly greater extent by mental health issues – just one more reason to ban them from entering Western nations.

Of course we all know, mental health is just the latest Asian youth, and this was a blatant Islamic attack just as Mohammad proscribes for all Muslims.

Canada: Muslim detonated bomb, killed on way to attack highly populated area

Harun Abdurahman aka Aaron Driver

via Aaron Driver Harun Abdurahman ‘Detonated Bomb In Taxi’ As Canada Cops Swooped

A Canadian terror suspect detonated a bomb in the back seat of a taxi as police closed in on Wednesday, authorities say.

Aaron Driver wounded himself and the cab driver, before police opened fire in Strathroy, Ontario, said officials.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police told a news conference that Driver, who died, was in the final stages of a homemade bomb plot.

Deputy Commissioner Mike Cabana said the FBI had supplied them with credible information, including a “martyrdom” video.

He said the evidence suggested Driver had planned a suicide attack within 72 hours targeting an unspecified urban centre during rush hour.

It showed a masked man, identified by investigators as Driver, decrying western “enemies of Islam” and quoting Koranic verses.

“Oh Canada, you received many warnings, you were told many times what would become of those who fight against the Islamic State,” the person in the video said.

The suspect warned the only solution would be the “spilling of your blood”.

Driver – who converted to Islam in his teens – was described by the authorities as a known sympathiser of the so-called Islamic State.

He was placed under a terrorism-related peace bond this year after he was arrested in Winnipeg in June 2015 for openly supporting the Islamic State group on social media.

Driver – who used the alias Harun Abdurahman – was also allegedly in contact in 2015 with a UK-born youth who was later arrested for an alleged Australian terror plot.

Driver – who used the alias Harun Abdurahman – was also allegedly in contact in 2015 with a UK-born youth who was later arrested for an alleged Australian terror plot.

His estranged father, Wayne Driver, told news outlets he was saddened by his son’s death but not surprised.

“Our worst nightmare has come true,” Mr Driver told the National Post newspaper.

“Aaron was a good kid who went down a dark path and couldn’t find the light again.”


That dark path is Islam. More via: ‘We thirst for your blood,’ Aaron Driver warned Canada in video threat | Toronto Star

The RCMP showed a video at the news conference in which a masked man they identified as Driver, 24, warns, “O Canada, you received many warnings… You were told many times what would happen.”

The man continues: “You saw bodies of the filthy French lying in the streets. You still have much to pay for.”

“For this we thirst for your blood,” he said. “You will pay for everything you brought against us.”

The RCMP says Driver planned to attack a major urban centre during the morning or afternoon rush hour this week, but added they were not sure which community he planned to hit.

“Mr. Driver was looking for a location that was highly populated,” said RCMP Acting-Commander Jennifer Strachan.

He was under a court order not to associate with any terrorist organization, including Daesh, an Islamist terrorist group also known as ISIS or ISIL.

After Driver’s arrest in Winnipeg last summer, he was released on a peace bond, court documents show. He agreed to follow a list of conditions: he was made to wear an electronic monitoring device and wasn’t allowed to use a computer. He also had to remain in the city and not move away without court permission, surrender his passport and any firearms or prohibited weapons, observe a 9 p.m. curfew, let the RCMP check his phone upon request and participate in religious counseling.

Driver was allowed to move to Strathroy, where he lived on Park St. for the past several months. Court documents show the conditions of his peace bond also applied in Ontario.

The peace bond’s requirements about cellphone and computer usage were set to expire August 31, while all the other requirements stayed in place. Driver’s peace bond was valid for 10 months and was set to expire Dec 1.

Police and government officials have been tight-lipped about the violent events that unfolded in the small town near London, Ont., but the Canadian Press reported that Driver was killed after speaking with a source close to the situation on condition of anonymity.
