The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, supported by all taxpayers, bends over backwards to accommodate Islam. I have lost track of the number of complaints I have lodged with the ombudsman, Esther Enkin. It seems that the CBC does not consider the omission of facts to be unethical. Hence the never-ending interviews with Syrian refugees and Muslims sharing their concerns about Islamophobia, as defined by Muslims. Matt Galloway, the morning guy, has a tone that is painfully reverential-or is it deferential?
I had already lodged a complaint about the one-sided narrative relayed by Matt Galloway regarding Islam when he interviewed a Senator. This was not part of the information shared about how we welcome Syrian refugees in Canada.
“On Family Day (February 5, 2016), the Alberta Islamic Welfare Association headed by Shaban Sherif Mady hosted Syrian refugees and their families for a social gathering with members of the local Muslim community in Edmonton. In his speech to the Syria refugees, Shaban Sherif Mady emphasized the merits of the people of Greater Syria in the eyes of Allah for defeating the Crusaders and the Tatars and ended with a supplication to Allah. The following is an excerpt from the supplication (originally in Arabic):
“O Allah! Strengthen the mujahideen [jihad fighters in the path of Allah] everywhere, make their hearts firm and strong, let them hit their targets, give them victory over their enemies. O Allah! Destroy the oppressors. O Allah!Destroy your enemies, the enemies of religion (Islam). O Allah! Whoever wishes good for Islam and the Muslims bestow all goodness upon him. O Allah! Whoever wishes ill for us and wishes ill for Islam and the Muslims, make his plot (tied) around his neck and make him preoccupied with himself, and make his plan cause his own destruction.”
And I shared another Muslim view on Canada.
Syed Hassan Mujtaba Rizvi, Pakistani born Shiite cleric who grew up in Canada. Here are his statements on Islam:
“My affiliations are with Iran, because my affiliation with Canada would mean that if in Canada there was something for me to affiliate by, that was given to me by Allah, I should have affiliation with Canada. But when I look towards Allah, and I see that He has affiliation with Iran, has no affiliation with Canada with America, I say: I have affiliation with Iran.
Tuesday morning, June 20, 2017, Mr. Galloway did another interview about Islamophobia and Ramadan.And so I wrote again.
We hear that Ramadan is a Holy month. Jews, Christians and all other faith groups also have holy times-days, or weeks.
Yet, I don’t recall ever hearing of murder in the name of a religion as I do about Islam.
Here is the latest report on the number of murders/injuries in this years’ Ramadan. Not yet over.
The word “phobia” means irrational fear of something. Homophobia is the irrational fear of gay people. There are people with phobias regarding spiders. Freud has written about that. I can talk on both sides. But the irrational fear of Islam? How do you square that circle? How do you manage, in all good conscience, to talk about an irrational fear of Islam when so many have been murdered in the name of Islam-for years; not just on Ramadan when the terror attacks increase?
By the grace of God a horrific terror attack was just thwarted in Paris because the police managed to stop a man with a bomb. Five innocent people were murdered in the name of Islam in Mali. And correct me if I am mistaken, but I don’t recall hearing about the 23 year old female IDF officer, Hadas Malka, murdered in cold blood by a Muslim in Israel. Please forward any links from TV or radio as web reports are not your reason for being.
I have often believed and intimated that the CBC has no regard for Jewish lives. When was the last time you reported on the terror attacks in Jews in Israel?
Twenty months of terror – 13 September 2015 to the present
- In 2016, 12 vehicular ramming attacks and 100 stabbing attacks were thwarted by security forces.
- Since 13 September 2015, 50 people have been killed in terrorist attacks and 759 people (including 4 Palestinians) injured.
- There have been 180 stabbing attacks and 124 attempted stabbings; 150 shootings; 58 vehicular (ramming) attacks; and one vehicular (bus) bombing.
When was the last time you invited someone from Stand With Us Canada or Hasbara Canada Fellowships to speak about the frightening rise in antisemitic attacks in Canada, particularly on our campuses, and too often from Muslim students?
When will Matt Galloway, in his hushed reverent tones, talk about Jewophobia-the irrational hate of Jews-all 350,000 in Canada. Per capita the Jewish people in this country are under attack more than any other religious group.
When will you talk about the inciteful rhetoric that comes from the mosques and the Imams in CANADA? I asked that when you did not report the hateful comments of the Imam to the Syrian refugees. The response was tepid at the very best.
Here are some facts. Perhaps you can find a way to share them on the many programmes you have at your disposal.
“O Allah! We ask you… [to give us] victory over the enemies. O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your oppressed slaves all over the world, east to west. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your slaves who believe in the oneness of Allah, O the Lord of the Worlds! O Allah! Destroy the criminals. O Allah! Destroy anyone who inflicts injustice on your slaves, O the Lord of the Worlds! O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Do not defer [it] from them. O Allah! Seize them with the seizure of One Mighty, Omnipotent [referring to a Quranic verse that deals with the punishment Allah inflicted on Pharaoh and his people].
[O Allah!] Give us victory over the disbelieving people… O Allah! Give victory to Islam and raise the standing the Muslims. And humiliate the polytheism and polytheists. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your slaves who believe in the oneness of Allah, O the Lord of the Worlds! O Allah! Give them victory over the criminal people. O Allah! Destroy anyone who killed Muslims. O Allah! Destroy anyone who displaced the sons of the Muslims. O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews! O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews!
Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr, who, during his sermon at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the Montreal’s Saint-Michel neighbourhood, called for Jews to be killed.
“O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”
Or one of my all time favourites.
O Allah, destroy the accursed Jews
O Allah, show us the black day you inflict on them
O Allah, show us the wonders of your power and ability inflicted on them,
O the most Merciful O Allah, show us how you do to them what you did to [the peoples] of ʿĀd and Thamud [ancient peoples that perished by Allah because they didn’t heed the warnings of the prophets]…
O Allah, make their children orphans and their women widows
So, when do you think I will hear from Mr. Galloway or Ms. Enkin regarding the wee problem of the sinful omission of facts?
