Syrian extremists threaten to ‘destroy’ Canada in online video

The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to “destroy” Canada, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology. “This is a message to Canada and all the American tyrants: We are coming and we will destroy you, with permission from Allah the almighty”.

Fighting to Take Back the Narrative From Islamists in Canada

 

Mumtaz Khan is the President of the Muslim Canadian Congress, an organization dedicated to “fighting Islamism on behalf of Muslims,” according to its website. The organization believes “in a progressive, liberal, pluralistic, democratic and secular society where everyone has freedom of religion,” in the separation of religion and state and opposes gender apartheid.

The Middle East War on Christians

Muslim-majority nations are doing to followers of Jesus what they did to the Jews. The Middle East may be the birthplace of three monotheistic religions, but some Arab nations appear bent on making it the burial ground for one of them.

For 2,000 years, Christian communities dotted the region, enriching the Arab world with literature, culture and commerce. At the turn of the 20th century, Christians made up 26% of the Middle East’s population. Today, that figure has dwindled to less than 10%.

Intolerant and extremist governments are driving away the Christian communities that have lived in the Middle East since their faith was born.

Easter and the Persecuted Church: Time of Celebration, Danger

In many countries around the world, Christians are an embattled minority. In fact, Christians are the largest persecuted religious group in the world today with at least 100 million Christians living in countries or regions where they are pressured, oppressed, imprisoned or even killed because of their faith.

For Christians living in countries like Iraq, Nigeria and Algeria, Easter takes on additional implications. It remains a precious and holy day, but one that also carries extra risk and danger.

 Christians Heroically Kill 65 Jihadists And Destroy Their Mosque

 The followers of Muhammad have invaded the entire Christian city of Saidnaya, in Syria, and as they debase and scoff the churches with their heretical presence, they oppress the saints as they cry out their blasphemous utterances, as the Pharaoh did, saying, “Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go?” (Exodus 5:2)

A small band of Christians have formed an army to fight and kill jihadists who attack the holy sites of Syria. This is an incredible story of heroism, of how a few men can defeat entire armies, and it has never been reported before in the English language, until now.

The Boston bombing and the “Islamophobia” scam

When Islamic jihadists set off two bombs last year at the Boston Marathon, murdering three people and wounded 260, maiming some for life, they brought to fruition not only their own plot, but the whole enterprise of making Americans think that there is a big problem of “Islamophobia” in this country.

As this grim anniversary of the April 15, 2013 bombings approaches, it is useful to recall what the ongoing drumbeat over “Islamophobia” is really all about: enabling Islamic jihad murder.

California: Muslim guilty of killing wife whose murder was blamed on “Islamophobia”

The whole “hate crime” aspect of Shaima Alawadi’s murder was staged. It was apparently an Islamic honor killing for which Shaima Alawadi’s husband is now standing trial.

Will the Leftists and Islamic supremacists who made so much of the hate crime now stage “One Million Hijabs Against Honor Killing”? Somehow I doubt it.

Hamas-linked CAIR targets Oberlin prof who was critical of jihad terror

A Muslim who was born and raised in Iraq has no credibility to speak about Islam?

Then who does?

As far as Hamas-linked CAIR is concerned, only those who are uncritical and fulsome in their praise of the religion, not anyone who dares to whisper a hint of concern about jihad terror or Islamic supremacism.

Hamas-linked CAIR guns for anyone and everyone who dares to utter the slightest critical word about jihad terror and Islamic supremacist.

How Modernity ‘Radicalizes’ Western Muslims

“For many years we lulled ourselves with the idea that radicalization was not happening inside the United Sates. We believed American Muslims were immune to radicalization because, unlike the European counterparts, they are socially and economically well-integrated into society. There had been warnings that these assumptions were false but we paid them no mind. Today there is no doubt that radicalization is taking place inside America. The strikingly accelerated rate of American Muslims arrested for involvement in terrorist activities since May 2009 makes this fact self-evident.” (Sue Myrick)

http://www.meforum.org/3808/muslims-radicalization-western


Lorna Salzman writes the following in response:

A very timely and insightful analysis of the roots of second generation Muslim violence. This holds true for Europe as well as the US, in particular Great Britain, where the older generation has long been assimilated. One might add that young Muslims are protesting against their parents for having diluted or abandoned fundamentalist Islam.

It is of course another way of protest that blames society or western culture or imperialism….anything that exonerates their own leaders from any responsibility for their lack of jobs, education, economic stability and even minimal culture.

This mirrors exactly the turbulence in the Muslim world itself, where domestic political oppression, inequality and inter-group religious conflict are blamed on the US, Israel and the west in general. And when there are external forces that have created problems for the entire population of a country,whether corruption, bribery, economic failures, exploitation, the Muslims will of course think they are being selected out to be the victims. This dissociation from the rest of society is self-inflicted of course.

It is the refusal to assimilate (which of course would mean accepting western norms of behavior, rules of law, and civic involvement) that is at the core of the daily problems of Muslims, and this is over-compensated by their demands for special treatment and privileges based on their religion, showing the usual and innate sense of superiority instilled in them by their irresponsible leaders.

In the end, the only solution to all of this will not be appeasement, tolerance, multi-culturalism, apologies or special signs of respect but the complete acceptance by Muslims of the imperative: to separate  religion and state.

Depressingly however, their refusal to accept this most basic attribute of democracy and civil society is today supported by fundamentalist leaders of the other major religions, and most disturbingly by the orthodox Jewish rabbis, who automatically support the demands of Muslims for special treatment and recognition, to the point where these Jewish leaders are prepared to erase the boundaries between religion and state at the demand of Muslim leaders, thus ending up allied with the most regressive, violent and oppressive principles….the same ones that fertilize and nurture the terrorism that we see today…..LS

How Should We Remove Islam from Britain and the West?

Historically, wherever in the world Islam has established a secure foothold, it has become dominant, imposing not just the faith of Islam, but also the political, ideological and social curses that come with it. Therefore, if we are concerned for the well-being of our descendants it is imperative that we loosen that foothold.

The future subjugation of the British people can be avoided only if we take firm and decisive actions now to halt the continuing expansion of Islam, and to remove Islam from Britain and the West altogether.

UK: Probe of Islamic Takeover Plot Widens

The problem of Islam in public schools has been allowed to snowball to vast proportions… not hundreds but thousands of British schools have come under the influence of Muslim radicals.

The plot—dubbed Operation Trojan Horse—consists of a strategy to wrest control of schools by ousting non-Muslim head teachers and staff at secular state schools and replacing them with individuals who will run the schools according to strict Islamic principles.

Allegations include the takeover of school governing bodies by Islamic fundamentalists, harassment and squeezing-out of non-Muslim teachers, forcing female students to cover their hair, banning sex-education classes, bullying female staff, and segregating boys and girls in classrooms.

UK: Multiculturalism vs. Islamism

British Islamists, exploiting the imposition of multiculturalism, forced their officially recognized and publicly funded model of Muslim identity upon their conscripted South Asian constituents. Western governments are not morally responsible for the hateful ideas and murderous actions of the Islamist networks. That wickedness lies with the Islamist groups themselves.

But by continuing to promote pernicious policies of multiculturalism while failing to protect the individual liberties on which the West was built, government policy does serve to provide ammunition and willing recruits to the Islamist cause.

UK: Free speech showdown over “taqiyya”

Here is a good account — by the victim — of yet another Islamic supremacist attempt to shut down the freedom of speech, with the aid of the British government. This one failed. There will be many, many other such attempts, and probably more from the mendacious, grievance-mongering taqiyya artist Fiyaz Mughal.

Never mind that the right to free speech is one of our fundamental freedoms and the cornerstone of a free democracy, if it offends one of our protected minority species then it must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, or so the current thinking, influenced as it is by the twin evils of political correctness and multiculturalism, goes today.

UK: Muslim Sex Gangs Have Victimized 10,000 Girls Since the 1970s

The ongoing process of “cultural enrichment” has adversely affected our people in several ways, but perhaps no gift of “diversity” is more shocking or sickening than the presence of Muslim sex gangs in our lands. These gangs target non-Muslim girls as young as 11 or 12, many of whom come from broken homes, and draw them into a nightmare world of sexual abuse and torture.

This phenomenon has been receiving more publicity lately, but according to a new report, these gangs have been active for decades, while the authorities refused to act out of fear of being labeled “racist”.

Gavin Boby’s Fight Against Muslim Rape Gangs in the U.K

Who Is to Blame for “Islamophobia” in the UK?

 

If you look at the London Tube Bombing of 7/7; the Madrid Train Bombing; two attacks on the World Trade Center; the murders of Lee Rigby, Theo Van Gogh, Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, Ilan Halimi, and countless other attack and threats, how can we honestly expect people not to be “Islamophobic”? It would appear we have no one to blame but ourselves.

If we Muslims are actually opposed to these Islamist hate preachers, why are we failing to take a unanimous public stance against them, to disown and isolate them from our community? If one dispassionately examines facts, it seems possible that if “Islamophobia” exists in the U.K., then perhaps we Muslims are to blame for it.

Islam and Human Rights

Some of the proponents of Islam and Islamic laws would point out that the ideology and religion of Islam sit at the heart of human rights standards and are totally compatible with the modern notion of human rights.

But when I delve into the issue, and going into the nuances and details of the question, they seem to dodge answering. Article three of the universal declaration of human rights, states that “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” But in Islamic countries, a person who rejects and abandons Islam has no right to life. According to Islam, unbelievers commit the gravest sin in Islam.

Islamists are rising in America while we sleep

We are indeed witnessing the rise of Islamists in America. How has it come to this, that such a small minority has gained such a powerful political voice and influence? How is it that an organization like the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is even allowed to exist in our Republic?

It’s simple, we have become so damn politically correct that a vile organization that was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terrorist funding case in America can thumb its nose and by intimidation and coercion deny free speech and freedom of expression in our country. We have fallen under the spell of the bumper sticker “coexist” and have failed to heed the lessons of history.

State Department issues worldwide caution against jihad terror attacks targeting US

Information suggests that al-Qaeda and its affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics including suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings. State, in other words, and the whole political culture in Washington, of denial and appeasement, has brought this situation upon us

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

4

This book is a chronicle of the surprising inroads that Shariah, the guiding principles of Radical Islam, has made in American during the critical years of 2008 – 2013.

Radical Islam, also known as Political or Shariah Islam, has expanded onto every continent and with it Sharia-ism, the political movement of Radical Islam, whose goal of totalitarian control of every nation and people is incompatible with Western values of individual liberties and inalienable rights.

·        Sharia-ism is about politics, not religion.

·        Sharia-ism is about  total control, not simply destruction or terrorism.

·        Sharia-ism ,like Communism, Nazism, and Fascism before it, is propelled by leaders who govern absolutely  by shutting down freedom of speech, religion, and equal justice before the law.

 

In this resource book, you will learn how uninformed United States leaders in our justice, prison and intelligence departments, politicians, corporate executives and college presidents, are enabling Sharia-ism in America.

You will also read that European and Canadian governments are doing a quick reversal of their earlier Sharia tolerance.  For the past two years, debate about Sharia-ism in these regions has been fierce, and in its wake, laws are rapidly being passed to curb Sharia advances.

WISHING ALL OUR MEMBERS

A HAPPY PASSOVER & A HAPPY EASTER

This week, Jewish families and friends have been celebrating Passover, a tradition rich in symbolism and meaning. Its observance reminds all of us that the struggle for freedom and the battle against oppression waged by Jews since ancient times is one shared by people everywhere.

And Christians have been commemorating the last momentous days leading to the crucifixion of Jesus 2,000 years ago. Both observances tell of sacrifice and pain but also of hope and triumph.

As we look around us today, we still find human pain and suffering, but we also see it answered with individual courage and spirit, strengthened by the unifying power of faith and hope and resilience, enabling the human spirit to overcome great obstacles.

Thursday Night Update: How Ezra’s lawfare trial is going || by Ezra Levant


Capture

TRIAL UPDATE FROM EZRA


– The following message is sponsored by StandWithEzra.ca

Dear JEFFREY,

Today I took the stand in the lawfare trial being waged against me.

All week the court had been listening to Khurrum Awan, the plaintiff. But by the afternoon today, it was my turn to tell my side of the story. I’m back at it tomorrow morning.

I don’t want to give away tomorrow’s testimony here, but I can tell you that I’m going to talk about freedom.

Freedom of speech and freedom of the press – that is, the right to say things that I honestly feel, to critically examine ideas, including the idea of radical Islam.

Freedom of religion, too – including the separation of mosque and state. The activist who is suing me was the youth president of the Canadian Islamic Congress, an organization that campaigns for sharia law. I have the right to oppose that, and not live under it.

I have the right to speak out against bigotry and anti-Semitism – such as the Canadian Islamic Congress’s public support for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah.

And I have the right to criticize Canada’s human rights commissions themselves, with their counterfeit “right not to be offended”. In fact it’s my duty to criticize them – as a citizen and a lawyer myself, I have an obligation to fight for the reform of our justice system where I see that it’s broken. And our human rights commissions are deeply broken – probably beyond repair.

Khurrum Awan was an active participant in one of the most disgraceful human rights commission kangaroo courts in Canadian history – a five-day prosecution of Maclean’s magazine, back in 2008, for publishing an essay about radical Islam by Mark Steyn.

There’s a pattern here. Awan likes to attack those he disagrees with. Here’s what he he was reported to have said after the Steyn hearing: “we attained our strategic objective — to increase the cost of publishing anti-Islamic material.”

That’s outrageous. That’s lawfare. And that’s what they’re doing to me this week.

And as a Canadian, I have the right to criticize radical Islam, and its proponents, in a manner that I see fit. I can be serious or funny; I can be calm or I can be passionate. I can be polite. Or I can be rude. It’s called freedom of speech.

If you don’t like what I have to say, don’t listen to me. Buy another newspaper or turn the channel on TV. But in Canada, we don’t censor people for political or religious reasons. We don’t have blasphemy trials for people who criticize radical Islam. We don’t live under sharia law, despite the Canadian Islamic Congress’s best efforts.

I’ll be on the witness stand again tomorrow, starting at 10 a.m. If you’re in Toronto, please feel free to attend at the court house at 393 University Avenue, in room 808. Closing arguments are expected on Monday.

Here’s a short video I recorded yesterday, talking about how much I appreciate my in-person visitors.

This trial is enormously expensive for me. Not only do I have to take time off work, but of course my main expense is paying a lawyer – not just for his time in the court itself, but for all the preparations, too. There are literally thousands of pages of documents to review.

See, that’s why it’s called lawfare: illiberal activists using our own laws as weapons of war, to punish defenders of liberty.

That’s why I’m so grateful to you for your support. If you know of anyone else who might be able to contribute, please forward this letter to them.

They can learn all about the case – both my side of the story, and Awan’s – at www.StandWithEzra.ca. And they can make a secure and confidential donation by clicking on the PayPal button on that site.

I’m fighting for my own freedom this week. But it’s not just me. If I lose – if Khurrum Awan, the man who tried to censor Mark Steyn wins – it will set a terrible precedent for the whole country.

Everyone – journalists, politicians, and of course every Canadian citizen – will be afraid to speak out against the likes of the Canadian Islamic Congress. It’s already tough enough with political correctness.

If it becomes against the law to call members of such a group “anti-Semitic” (that’s one of the things I’m being sued for), imagine how much more that would chill free speech.

Thanks for your support. Wish me luck!
Yours truly,

Ezra Levant
