2023 Israel-Hamas War | 2023 | 2022 | O Canada

In defiance of the West, the Taliban will stone women in public again... In a March broadcast on Afghan state media, Supreme Leader Mullah Haibatlullah Akhundzada [said:] “You may call it a violation of women’s rights when we publicly stone or flog them for committing adultery because they conflict with your democratic principles … [But] I represent Allah, and you represent Satan.” Globe and Mail April 9, 2024

There is no verse in the official Koran about stoning anyone to death for adultery. Countries that would stone women and girls to death for illegal sex do so in accordance with the example of the Prophet and/or because they subscribe to the theory of the lost verse.

Canadian astronaut says total solar eclipse a rare chance to witness 'cosmic ballet' Canadian Press, April 8, 2024

For some the ballet will be just an illusion. In the Koran, the Moon and the Sun occupy the same orbit. Cleric Mohammed Yusuf, the deceased leader of Boko Haram, Nigeria's largest gathering of holy warriors whose designation literally means “non-Islamic education is a sin” in a 2009 BBC interview was asked about the Koran’s description of space being so much at odds about what we know. He said that space as we know it is all illusion created by Allah to test our faith in what he revealed in His Book, including that the Earth is flat.

Veterans Affairs Canada trolled for 'politically correct' Easter tweet: 'Happy March holiday season' National Post, March 30, 2024

On Saturday, the Toronto Sun reported that "Prime Minister acknowledges most religious holidays – except Good Friday." The Prime Minister sets the tone. Trudeau may not have wanted to acknowledge Good Friday because of his respect for a constituency that is close to his heart or, just like that constituency, he actually believes it was all an illusion. Veterans Affairs’ erasing of Easter is no worse than what their boss did in ignoring Good Friday.

Canada Post releases new stamp celebrating Muslim festival [of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan] CP24 March 28, 2024

What the stamp will be commemorating is the end of an intensive indoctrination into a book that advocates the subjugation of unbelievers by whatever means, with killing them as a last resort, that Muhammad and his successors took advantage and sent many of them off to do just that.

Narrated Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri:

The Prophet used to proceed to the Musalla (open space outside a mosque that is mainly used for praying,) on the days of Id-ul-fitr and Id-ul-Adha; the first thing to begin with was the prayer and after that he would stand in front of the people and the people would keep sitting in their rows. Then he would preach to them, advise them and give them orders, (i.e. Khutba). And after that if he wished to send an army for an expedition, he would do so.

Bukhari 15.76

Supreme Court reaffirms religious liberty in Canada (but not Quebec) Court upholds the right of Muslim students to pray at Calgary private school National Post, March 28, 2024

Prayers are not accepted by Allah unless wudu has been performed beforehand. This does not seem to have been the case with two Muslim students who knowingly and deliberately enrolled in a private "“nondenominational” school then demanded it breach its Charter so as to accommodate their religious beliefs. It was all a sham.

When God chose a merchant to deliver his ultimate message on how He wanted to be worshipped and how we should behave He chose well. Muhammad practically invented modern marketing from his point-based reward system to getting your brand out there with women as billboards for a religion that hates and to what amounts to a non-stop commercial that is akin to religious theatre that are his instructions on how to perform the mandated prayers, Islam’s second of five mandatory pillars, i.e. immutable obligations.

Islamists would like to stage this play/commercial everywhere, not only in purpose-built buildings such as mosques but in private and public schools ostensibly devoted to protecting students from religious propaganda. The Supreme of Canada has now, except for the Province of Quebec, given them carte blanche to do so. This is a tremendous victory for Islam with far-reaching repercussions that can only accelerate its inevitable triumph.

61:9 It is He Who sent His Messenger forth with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it triumph over every religion.

How Muhammad got God to agree to the daily prayers that have placed a Western secular education squarely between a pillar and a hard place. 

Moscow attack: Day of mourning after 133 killed at Crocus City Hall concert BBC March 24, 2024

Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.

Ayatollah Khomeini

Concerts make particularly attractive targets for Islamic terrorists, not only because they attract a crowd of people of all ages enjoying themselves, but a crowd of bona fide sinners. Listening to music or playing musical instruments is 16th of the 50 grave or greater sins; sins where the transgressor will burn in hell for eternity.

At least 133 dead after Moscow terror attack. ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack at a popular concert venue complex near Moscow CNN March 23, 2024

What is unusual about this attack is that the terrorists did not continue killing until they themselves were killed for that is how you get into Paradise no questions asked.

3:169 And do not think those who have been killed in the Way of Allah as dead; they are rather living with their Lord, well provided for.

As explained in a discussion on Australian TV between Muslim clerics Dr. Jamal Rifi and Sheikh Mohammad Tawhidi  following the Manchester massacre, this is the power of Islamic scriptures in recruiting fanatics to kill in the Way of Allah.

More families will be allowed to apply to come to Canada from Gaza, Immigration Minister says. Globe and Mail, March 18, 2024

Are we again witnessing Prime Minister Trudeau's Islamophilia at work considering the families he is bringing in will be very much still under the influence of the Koran and their imams and therefore expected to support, if not swell the already impressive protests against Israel's unconscionable actions in Gaza, which, according to CNN, have killed nearly 100 children a day in Gaza since the war started (CNN March 2, 2024).

The insanity of men raised on a pitiless text setting up children to be killed for the propaganda value, and an enemy willing to oblige.

Big moon god block big sun god! Much darkness. Teachers afraid! Cancelling classes due to an eclipse is just teachers’ unions insisting their members resist the notion that they should ever need to work on any day that is in any way special. Chris Selley National Post, March 17, 2024

Isn’t that the point of eclipses, to scare people?

Narrated Abu Bakra:

Allah's Apostle said: "The sun and the moon are two signs amongst the signs of Allah and they do not eclipse because of the death of someone but Allah frightens His devotees with them."

Bukhari 17.158

For Muslim women who are isolated, Ramadan can be lonely. An Ottawa group is working to fix that with 'Sisterhood Iftar' Ottawa Citizen March 13, 2024

Not to be disrespectful, but not being able to participate in all that Ramadan has to offer may have some health benefits. The Fast of Ramadan is a misnomer. Ramadan is not so much a fast, which can be beneficial, but a changing of your eating schedule for 30 consecutive days from three balanced meals during the day to one meal after nightfall on which some will you gorge themselves while others pick at it perhaps hoping to avoid the impact on a confused digestive system. You  can eat and drink until morning.

2:187 Eat and drink until you can discern the white thread from the black thread of dawn.

Health concerns would not have been an issue in the hot sunny deserts of Arabia, where the tradition originated, when your daily main meal was after the sun set, for obvious reasons.

Modern-day Islam does make allowance for diabetics and people who must take medicine with food at a specific time of the day. For otherwise healthy people, whose eating schedule was not that of a Torrid Zone desert dweller, constipation is the most common side effect of observing the so-called Fast of Ramadan. The reason why, I was told by a Muslim acquaintance, many stock up on laxatives before the onset of Ramadan.

Muhammad broke his daily fast with a helping of one or more dates, a natural  laxative. In keeping with this tradition, many halal food banks, such as Ottawa's Sadaqa Food Bank, include at least one box of dates in their Ramadan food hamper.

At some latitudes the lateness of the one meal of the day during Ramadan will be even more conducive to an uncooperative colon.

Ramadan’s health impact is relatively the same for both sexes. Not so for another Torrid Zone tradition! I will let Uzza explain how a manufactured religious imperative, not related to Ramadan, can have direr and long lasting consequences for females. You may have seen its impact on many women forced out of their homes in Gaza by Israeli bombs.

Biden warns Netanyahu he risks losing international support due to casualties in Gaza. CNN March 10, 2024

Israel was created to be a safe haven for Jews. Today, because of its abject cruelty towards Palestinians and a near absolute disregard for their lives and property, no Jew is safe anywhere. It will only get worst unless we put an end to what started as a noble experiment. Europe, in particular, should welcome a massive influx of Israeli Jews so as to revitalize a way of life that almost died at Auschwitz while blunting the Islamization of the birthplace of the fragile exception.

Rahim Mohamed: National Muslim group demands MPs denounce Israel or face wrath. Feb. 29, 2024

Members of Parliament, if you are friends of Israel you will do what the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) asks.

I will admit to having been influenced by Star Trek and the morality lessons contained in many episodes. One of them stands out in relation to this conflict. The following dialogue where the character Worf is harshly reprimanded by his captain for putting children at risk will be familiar with fans of Star Trek Deep Space 9:

Sisko: You fired at something you hadn't identified. You made a military decision to protect your ship and crew, but you're a Starfleet officer,

Worf. We don't put civilians at risk or even potentially at risk to save ourselves. Sometimes that means we lose the battle and sometimes our lives. But if you can't make that choice, then you can't wear that uniform.

Worf: Yes, sir.

Sisko: At ease, Commander. Now, all that being true, the reality is no harm has been done. There are no dead children on your conscience. You got lucky.

To date, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) have killed more children than died in conflicts since Israel's founding. The IDF has lost the moral high ground and, in much of the world today is viewed as no better, if not worse, than the people they are fighting, having killed 25 people, and counting, for every one killed by Hamas. Those who won’t even try to bring Israel to its senses by criticizing its methods are not behaving as friends should.

Brendan O’Neill: As Islamist fervour sweeps Britain, critics are shamefully silenced Feb. 27, 2024

Taliban decrees on clothing and male guardians leave Afghan women scared to go out alone, says UN... Over half of the women interviewed for the report felt unsafe leaving the house without a male guardian, or mahram. CityNews Feb. 17, 2024

In the weirdness that is Islam where women are concerned, a lactating female can make any man mahram, i.e. ineligible for marriage therefore eligible to be her male guardian by suckling him.

Why women would join, let alone kill and die for a religion that denigrates them and condemns the vast majority to burn in hell is a mystery.

Avi Benlolo: Antisemitism in Canadian universities at least as bad as in UNRWA The surge in antisemitism is a direct result of imported Palestinian propaganda aimed at delegitimizing, defaming, and demonizing Israel Feb. 2, 2024

The surge in antisemitism may also have to do with prayers said in mosques, madrassas and increasingly in the secular school system and in universities and colleges that have acquiesced to the demands for prayer rooms.

Prayers in Islam are not about asking for favours or intervention—those are supplications and are a totally different thing—but worshipping Allah by uttering, usually as part of an assembly, verses from the book He authored. A prayer said alone and in silence is practically worthless. In a period of approximately a year, observant Sunnis will have prayed the entire Koran.

In saying their prayers believers are repeating some of the most hate filled scriptures, especially for Jews, ever imagined. Prayers are sacrosanct for every religion therefore off-limits in places of worship. But that should not be the case in our education system and which has created a fertile ground for the type of antisemitic propaganda mentioned by Mr. Benlolo.

Jesse Kline: The UNRWA teachers who slaughtered Jews and the Canadian profs who admire them." ...In December, Jewish educators told the National Post about a culture of antisemitism within Ontario’s Peel District School Board." Jan. 30, 2024

It is both a truism and a cliché that children are the future. Where that future will be shaped is in the classroom. The public non-denominational school system in Canada is both the strength and the Achilles’ heel of our democratic collective. The strength can be found in schools where children are still taught that the human journey is a journey in the pursuit of knowledge through scientific enquiry and critical thinking. Each generation being responsible for taking that additional step in the direction of the elusive, ultimate truth, which, if ever discovered would mean the end of the human journey as we know it.

The empirical pursuit of knowledge about our universe and our place in it, a gift from the Greeks of antiquity rediscovered during the Renaissance and the period known as the Enlightenment, is facing a serious challenge from those who believe that this journey ended long ago and that we should now simply worship and wait for the promised reward for our uncritical acceptance of revealed truths, immutable facts communicated to a mortal by a god.

Most, if not all religions would like nothing better than to transform classrooms into centers of religious indoctrination instead of education. Islam has been the most successful in breaching the last refuge of children from the bombardment of the word of God, the Peel and the Toronto School District being prime examples.

Muslim council cancels meeting with Trudeau over Gaza funding... “We’re interested in the government taking real tangible action to reduce Islamophobia in this country (and) taking real tangible action to stop the hostilities in the Middle East,” Stephen Brown (CEO of the National Council of Canadian Muslims) said. The Canadian Press Jan. 30, 2024

Uzza: Some people believe in the separation of Church and State as deeply as Islamists believe there should be no such distinction. Allowing Islam to blur this line by letting it market its ideology everywhere made people uneasy, and rightly so. If governments had held the line against a militant Islam that recognises no man-made boundaries to its expansion and jealously guarded the fragile exception that is Western civilization instead of caving in to bullies, there might have been fewer reasons for people to fear Islam.

Gerry: So you agree that Islamophobia is real.

Uzza: A fear of Islam is real, and it is not a phobia, as Islamists and their patsies would have you believe.

Gerry: By patsies, you mean politicians?

Uzza: And well-meaning people who don't know any better. A fear of Islam is a legitimate fear. Fear is what non-believers who get close and personal with the Koran and Allah’s unrestrained visceral hatred and cruelty for their kind will experience, for that is the intent. It is a fear nourished and amplified by the Author’s demands of believers when it comes to dealing with those for whom He has nothing but contempt: from avoiding them, to enslaving them, to killing them. Fear is what terrorism in the name of Allah is all about.

Instead of dealing with this fear in a forthright manner, Western governments preferred spreading the Islamic slander that a fear of Islam is an irrational fear, that of Islamophobia, or worse, racism, as if Islam was a race and not a religion.

Hamas command center found under cemetery Israel accused of desecrating Inside the tunnel, the IDF found an office from which a Hamas Khan Yunis Brigade battalion commander managed the attack on Oct. 7 National Post, Jan. 29, 2024

In Islam there should not be cemeteries as we know them. Muhammad, on his death bed, ranted against the tradition of erecting monuments over the grave of a dearly departed as creating a distraction from worshipping Allah. Most of his wives are buried in Medina’s Baqi cemetery which has since been bulldozed to erase all grave markers. What the Israelis did is not that much different than what the Saudis did to the most famous cemetery in Islam.

Taking a Bulldozer to History

Anti-Islamophobia envoy warns of chill on freedom of speech in relation to Gaza... “Better government co-ordination would allow more precise measures, Elghawaby argues, weeding out criminal acts of hate targeting any community while preserving their right to speak out.” Canadian Press, Jan 27, 2024

Since Ms. Elghawaby got that high-paying job she has adopted a more balanced speech, and for that we should all be grateful. Weeding out "acts of hate", including hate speech, against any community is a good thing. However, Ms. Elghawaby exhibited a double standard when it came to weeding out hate speech from within her community.

In 2015, the Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defence issued a report based largely on testimony from prominent Muslims about the threat posed by foreign trained imams. The Committee recommended that “the federal government work with the provinces and the Muslim communities to investigate the options that are available for the training and certification of imams in Canada.”

Ms. Elghawaby, then communications director of the CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations)-like National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) would have none of it. In an apoplectic response she misrepresented, not only the testimony of moderate coreligionist but the intent of the recommendation as an attack on the freedom of speech of Muslims.
