To all of you who’ve been asking where are all the moderate Muslim voices are who condemn all forms of terrorism: yesterday, the 9th of June, 2013, they were in Toronto!
It is good to see – and we must give these guys all the support we can. They are brave and we must let them know that we will not permit their voices to be silenced by the militants – that we are prepared to defend them, protect them and give them the platform to speak.
And, when our elected representatives are looking for voices from the Muslim community for consultation, we should demand that they talk to these Canadians first!!!
This, again, is a method of coercion.
Perhaps this is why the big-government leftists and Islamists get along so well…
The ‘Amina’ in question is Amina Tyler, a Tunisian member of Femen. (I have written about her here.) She had posted a topless photo of herself on FaceBook with the Arabic words for ‘My body is my own’ written across her chest. Her family had her committed to a mental institution, she ran away and now she is facing charges of indecency.
Considering they each could face 6 months in jail – and that is if the Islamists don’t get to them first: that is very, very brave of them!
You go, girls!
So, Canada’s most infamous convicted terrorist has been moved to a jail in Edmonton, because the other inmates at Millhaven (just west of Kingston), offered to kill him. Not for any political reasons, not because he is a Sharia supremacist, not because he is a war criminal, not because he murdered a medic who was trying to save Omar Khadr’s life – but because he’s such a jerk, even the other inmates cannot stand him.
‘Khadr was flown to the Edmonton Institution Tuesday, potentially ending a situation in which he had been deprived of prison programming that complicated efforts to seek parole, his lawyer Dennis Edney confirmed.
“Hopefully, this is a positive step in his long journey to freedom,” the Edmonton-based Edney said.’
Yeah, we all hope he’ll move right next door to us and pop over to sing Kumbaya with our kids every now and then…
With the failure of British and US police forces to protect their citizenry against Islamists with known terrorist tendencies, let’s show the world that the rule of law has not yet broken down in Canada.
Omar Khadr took up arms against forces engaged in a UN sanctioned war, forces which were direct allies of Canada. That, under Canadian laws, constitutes treason.
Let’s apply the law to Omar Khadr just like we would to any other Canadian, without prejudice on any grounds, and charge him with treason.
For a just society to exist, the laws must be applied to everyone equally – even Omar Khadr!
Pat Condell has hit the nail on the head with this one!
Just like Obama’s snarking that he did not have any idea that Jeremiah Wright was preaching anything hateful – even though he credited that man with converting him to Christianity and regularly attended his sermons did not fly and he was eventually forced to throw him under the proverbial bus id he wanted to retain a shred of respectability, so do moderate Muslims have to publicly and openly denounce every hate preacher who infiltrates their mosques. Passive silence is not an option when violent, seditious and murderous actions are being promoted, by anyone, anywhere, under any pretext.
The moderate Muslims must vote with their feet and walk out from hate-sermons, ostracize hate-preachers. If they remain with the Islamists, they must accept being treated as Islamists!
It is not possible to reclaim Islam from the Islamists without standing up to them. If those Muslims who tell us the extremists are high-jacking their religion do not take it back from them, then the 21st century Islam will be defined by them.
Except then, there will be nowhere to run to escape the Sharia!
Over the last little while, have come across some very interesting articles and such which I want to post about – but simply don’t have the capacity to fully explore. So, I’d like to catch up by presenting a whole bunch of them in one post for your pleasure!

If we don’t listen to them, we can never understand them!
