Toronto Star Islamist Propaganda
The Toronto Star’s resident Islamist shill, Haroon Siddiqui, has a piece mocking Canadian efforts to get the Islamic community to do more about the radicals in their midst: Muslim-bashing dilutes our democratic values.
Where were the democratic values of the Canadian jihadis when they were plotting mass murder?
Any time some Muslims somewhere commit an atrocity, a chorus of voices demands of Muslims everywhere: “What do you have to say about this?”
They should have to say nothing more than Christians or Jews or Hindus must for the wrongs of their co-religionists. As Lieutenant-Governor James Bartleman rightly said: “We would not condemn the Italian community because of the Mafia. We would not condemn the Irish community because of the IRA.” Or Serb Canadians for the ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia in the name of religious nationalism.
Muslims are also told to “take responsibility” for their deviants, “root out the extremists,” “weed out the radicals,” etc.
How are they supposed to do that? By becoming vigilantes?
Which self-appointed busybodies will use what yardstick to define “a radical,” an “extremist” or “a Wahhabi?”
George W. Bush’s first attorney-general, John Ashcroft, an openly Islamophobic Christian fundamentalist, proposed a program to ask Americans to snitch on fellow citizens. It was condemned as a totalitarian tool reminiscent of the old Communist states — and was dropped.
Yet, here we are, suggesting about the same thing in Canada.
