Creeping Islamization of Western Democracies
The Canadian parliament voted February 15 to approve a motion by Liberal MP Iqra Khalid (center left) calling on the federal government to condemn and battle "Islamophobia".
"Many in the mosque establishment and right-wing Islamic groups in Canada are celebrating this as a victory."Asif Javaid, Television Host
"But Muslim critics of the so-called "Motion 103," which mentions only Islamophobia by name and not any other form of religious persecution, are in disbelief that so few members of parliament have objected to this giant step backward and the watering down of our freedom of expression."
Tarek Fatah, Pakistani-Canadian journalist
"[Motion 103] echoes the agenda of Islamists and Islamic extremists in North America who are shamelessly taking advantage of the Quebec City tragedy [when 6 Muslim men at prayer in a mosque were shot to death] to advance the international Muslim Brotherhood agenda to silence any critique of Islamism."
"(E)xtremist Muslims who came here as refugees are making preparations to turn Canada into a ... nightmare."
TV host Asif Javaid argues that Khalid's motion "echoes the agenda of Islamists."
"What are they [Conservative Parliamentarians] scared of? They're scared of denouncing Islamophobia and, by not denouncing Islamophobia, they are actually contributing to the problem."
Heritage Minister Melanie Joly, Parliament, Ottawa
"[The Conservatives chose to have the House] condemn all forms of systemic racism, religious intolerance, and discrimination of Muslims, Jews, Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, and other religious communities."
"What stands out here is the inclusiveness of this [Conservative] motion. It lists the half dozen largest faith groups in Canada, but obviously includes all religious communities in Canada. There is no sense in excluding any of them."
Member of Parliament David Anderson, (Saskatchewan)
Newly-elected Liberal MP Iqra Khalid, a Pakistani-Canadian, introduced Motion-103 to the House of Commons, which calls on Parliament to "condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination", and she has the full support of the governing Liberals as well as MPs representing the New Democratic Party. The formerly-governing Conservatives with rare exception, have critiqued the motion for its singling out of Islam for protection from perceived criticism.
Having done so, the Conservatives have been heaped with scorn, charged with Islamophobia for the very reason that they refuse to support the motion clearly favouring Islam, even in the choice of the word "Islamophobia" which has served the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation in their campaign to charge that any criticism of Islam represents hatred and must be recognized as a criminal act, legally. In this way challenging the very touchstone of free speech.
This actual creeping Islamization of the West has been recognized for the threat that it represents by Islamic groups and Muslim individuals who have the greater interests of equality, democracy and freedom uppermost in mind, as opposed to the Islamists with their incendiary but surreptitious goal of suborning democracy, its justice system, and values and customs with Islamic Sharia law to be recognized universally.
This, from adherents of a religion that has roiled the world with the deadly onset of terrorism launched by Islamists who have responded to the many and various calls emanating from Koranic sacred scripts for the faithful to observe their obligation to engage in jihad.
O Allah, give victory to our brothers who engage in Jihad
O Allah, give them victory over their enemy
O Allah, destroy the accursed Jews
O Allah, make their children orphans and their women widows.
There are those, however, within the Canadian Muslim community who are outraged at this turn of events. These are the Muslim minority who speak for the majority which does not believe in the efficacy of Islamist violence either by physical force in lethal terrorism, or by stealth, by the gradual infiltration of Western institutions by the Muslim Brotherhood and its agencies and agents.
Former Conservative immigration minister Chris Alexander, hit the issue squarely on the head when he characterized M-103 as a "senseless, ill-worded motion" distracting from issues like national security and terrorism.
