Islamophobia Goes to School in Toronto - by Mairin Piccinin

http://www.mediacoop.ca/story/islamophobia-goes-school-toronto/8179

"On Sept 11, three religious groups set aside conflicting ideologies in a crusade against Islam in Toronto schools, for the third time in less than two months. The latest protest marked the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, with the goal- as declared on the large sign carried by one protester - to draw attention to 'The Infiltration of Radical Islam in Canadian Institutions'...

the results of a survey conducted last week by the Association for Canadian Studies suggests that Islamophobia in Canada is not limited to 'fringe' elements like the JDL...When 1,500 Canadians were asked whether they believe there is irreconcilable conflict between Western and Muslim societies, more than half (56%) answered 'Yes'.."

Thanks NDPP, that's an illuminating article.

Shit even the media coop has an islamophobic comment posted.  War propaganda is an art form that serves a deadly purpose.  Islamophobia is merely the latest in a long line of demonizing mimes.  The Hun, Japs, gooks etc etc.

democracies ALWAYS need an enemy group to "rally" against.  Today it's muslims or brown people of middle eastern origin, in the past it's been communists, jewish people, blacks, witches, etc.

the idea is you can only maintain control of people with relative freedom if they have something to be scared of that only a highly militarized and authoritarian group of elites can organize against to save the poor helpless masses.

the sad part is people still fall for it, even when it's so obvious!

Does supporting a two state solution make one a Zionist? The Globe raised the question in an article recently that asked whether the Palestinian Authority using the original partition vote as one of the arguments for statehood is tacitly recognizing Israel.

I had the opportunity to read all of the UN deliberations aroung the Partition when I wrote some undergrad papers many years ago. Fascinating reading. I hope someday to read the equivalent material concerning what is transpiring at the UN now.

Yeah, sorry, I've always avoided spelling flames; but 'demonizing mimes' was just too inadvertantly fun to resist!

It must be difficult to defend Muslims from a progressive POV when some of us actually go along with the imperialist narrative that says 19 "pious Muslims" perp'd 9/11 all by themselves. The American inquisition is a fear campaign that has even a few on the left nodding their heads up and down in rapid agreement with US Government conspiracy theories claiming that the American CIA are actually victims of 9/11 terror. Yes, Elvis bin Laden was once with us, but then he went against us as the imperialist narrative goes. Like a son goes against the father. And it's a lot of putrid imperialist bullshit rushed past their progressive noses undetected. Maybe they have "colds" for 10 years or more, I dunno.

Confirmed: Terry Jones To Appear At Queen's Park 6PM October 11

Should We Let Terry Jones In? (podcast)

http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2012/10/11/banning-people-at-the-bo...

"When he threatened to burn a stack of Qu'ran in Florida, he enflamed nations half a world away. Now Pastor Terry Jones wants to participate in a debate in Toronto and argue that Islam is not compatible with Western Culture. Should the government let him in?"

So Galloway is banned but Jones is allowed...and the rednecks, JDL, Banerjee et al get to mount yet another obscene Islamophobic circus tonight at Queen's Park. Shame! Someone needs to look at just who funds such groups as the JDL..

I doubt anyone funds them very much. How much does a URL and a bunch of shitty signs cost anyway? The group is irrelevant.

Mr.Tea

Terry Jones tried to cross into Canada this morning at the Detroit-Windsor border crossing. He has been detained for three hours. Not sure if he's getting in. The debate at Queen's Park is scheduled for 6 pm. Given the distance from Windsor to Toronto, it's not looking great that this debate will go ahead.

"Florida pastor Terry Jones, who inflamed Muslims by once burning the Qu'ran, says he has been denied permission to attend a Thursday evening speaking engagement in Toronto. Jones said the CBSA cited a previous peace bond infraction in the US, as well as an incident relating to a disputed honorary doctorate in Germany, to keep him out. 'The reasons are pretty bogus in our opinion,' he said..."

Oh la dee da.

 

So the white middle class in Canada can pat itself on the back because it won't let one of their own into the country. As if that makes up one iota for the rampant discrimination faced by religious, ethnic and gender minorities in this country.

 

La dee da.

In case anyone wonders what that last link is about (spoiler alert!):

"Hall co-hosts a YouTube show called "False Flag Weekly News," which allegedly promotes the notion of a Zionist conspiracy to foster hatred of Muslims through "false flag" terror events, beginning with the Sept. 11 attacks. He also runs his own news website."

He's working Paul Craig Roberts' corner.

'World's Top Islamophobe' Pamela Geller to Speak at Jewish Defence League Event in Toronto

https://nowtoronto.com/news/worlds-top-islamophobe-pamela-geller-to-spea...

"An American blogger described as 'the world's top Islamophobe' has been invited to appear at a speaking engagement organized by the Jewish Defence League (JDL) at Canada Christian College on December 18..."

I hope she will be suitably 'welcomed', and/or shut down. Why does the JDL continue to get a free pass with these sorts of hatemongers coming here while Chelsea Manning or George Galloway are denied entry?

Mobo2000

Personally I hope she is 'welcomed' by protests and then allowed to speak, and the full text of her remarks is published online for comment by the public.
