That’s it. I am done. I live in Canada, in a country that is described as tolerant, inclusive, accommodating, diverse. Unless you are a Jew.
I know in this day and age reading tweets takes time. Well, this article is more than 140 characters and more than 500 words. But if you care about the fact that the oldest hatred in the world-Jew hatred, is living and breathing in Canada, brought here by Muslims, not radical Muslims, then take the time to read this. And don’t fool yourselves. This hate is for Christians, as well.
In a series of lectures on the “Minor Signs of Qayamaah – The Last Day”, Toronto Imam Said Rageah said that the Muslims will eventually defeat the Christians and take over Rome, the Capital of Italy where the Vatican City is located.
Rageah, who suggested that signs of the Last Day are already seen in our time, said in this regard the following (Published YouTube on January 12, 2013):
There would be a war [between Muslims and Christians]… the third group would be victorious. They will win over the enemy [Christians]… and then the Muslims will go again to Constantinople, which is known as Istanbul today… Muslims will conquer that land without a fight. First time we did was with a fight. We fought them we won over them, but this time without a fight. Rome same thing. We’ll go to Rome. We will not fight. The Muslim believers will pray Allah Akbar [Allah is the greatest] and then they will be victorious. Allah will them the victory over the enemy [Christians].
“In 2016, the Jewish community, which makes up 3.8% of the religious population in the Toronto, was victimized in approximately 30% of the total hate/bias crimes while the Muslim community, which makes up 8.2% of the population was victimized in approximately 15% of the hate/bias crimes.Hate/bias crimes include assault, assault with a weapon, criminal harassment, mischief interfere with property, threatening bodily harm, threatening death and wilful promotion of hatred.Out of 66 hate/bias occurrences involving religion, Jews were targeted 43 times and Muslims were targeted 22 times.”
Seems to be a repeat of the anti-Semitism pre-WWII, right through the war, and long after-those lovely signs “No Jews, Dogs or Irishmen” finally disappeared.
Dogs and Irishmen are doing far better here (unless you live in an area where Sharia Law exists-then dogs aren’t welcome either) than the Jews. And I blame my government’s policies of allowing people into this country who do not accept that we are all equal as is declared in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms section 15.1
YES. We have Canadian values as I have written in my book Back to the Ethic: Reclaiming Western Values.
Under the heading of “Equality Rights” this section states:
15 (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
My Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, said on the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination 2017
“On this important day, we reaffirm our ongoing responsibility to speak out against racism, hate, xenophobia, and bigotry in all its forms. Silence is not an option because progress is never permanent.”
Sounds lovely doesn’t it? Except anti-Semitism is through the roof in this country. And I hear so little from him about that as he keeps telling Canadians that Islam is compatible with the West. And so many of us have been writing about Jew-hatred, yet we are, at best, spitting into the wind while inundated with calls to fight Islamophobia.
Well, read these anecdotes and then talk to me about Islamophobia.
I get to read articles like these on a regular basis.
So let’s talk about tolerance and equality for all as is taught in Islam in Canada
On December 23, 2016 Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr (محمد بن موسى آل نصر) led the Friday prayer at Dar Al-Arqam mosque (Mosquée Dar Al-Arqam) in Montreal.
In his sermon, Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr, a Jordanian cleric, called the Jews the “most evil of mankind” and “human demons” emphasizing that their fate was predetermined by Allah to be killed by the hands of the Muslims. The following are excerpts from his sermon (originally in Arabic):
What is the disease of the Jews? The Jews’ disease was that they believed in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part. Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He, said on their sin: Do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part? And the reward for those of you who do it will be nothing else but failure in life in this world. Allah sentenced them to failure in life in this world.
Allah is not ignorant of what you are doing. What was said about the Jews is said on about those who behave like the Jews… At the end of time when the Muslims will triumph over the most evil of mankind [and] the human demons, the stone and the tree will say: O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.
Similar messages were echoed by other Canadian imams.
Sheikh Abdulqani Mursal, imam at Masjid Al Hikma mosque in Toronto (36 Colville Rd, North York – Lawrence and Keele), explains that the fate of the Jews is destined to be killed by the Muslims.
In a lecture at the at Masjid Al Hikma mosque, Mursal read the chapter “Turmoil And Portents Of The Last Hour” from Sahih Muslim (hadith collection, meaning narrations attributed to Mohammad), including the following narrations (01:07-07:24 – originally in Arabic, translated by Hadith Collection
Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him.
How about this from the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Canada on-line syllabus
“[Hadith] 1820. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah(PBUH) said, “The Last Hour will not come until the Muslims fight against the Jews, until a Jew will hide himself behind a stone or a tree, and the stone or the tree will say: `O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him,’ but Al-Gharqad tree will not say so, for it is the tree of the Jews.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].”
“Commentary: Gharqad is a thorny plant which is well-known in the area of Palestine. Allah can bestow the power of speech to whatever thing He likes. When Allah wills, He will give mastery to the Muslims. He will help them even by means of plants and stones which will assist the Muslims against the Jews by informing them about the whereabouts of the Jews.”
“The Jews have predominance over the Muslims in spite of the fact that they are a minority. But according to this true narration, the situation will definitely change before the Day of Resurrection, and the Muslims will dominate the Jews. Allah is the Master and Rubb of everything.”
And then there is this all-inclusive, tolerant behaviour on our diverse campuses.
“Anti-Israel activists covered up an Israeli flag with an Algerian flag in order to eliminate all traces of Israel from a multicultural festival at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ontario, B’nai Brith Canada wrote in a statement. A Facebook screenshot obtained by B’nai Brith, which has since been deleted, shows members of the UOIT chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) “celebrating” their act of cultural vandalism by referring to Israeli Jews as “rodents” and telling a Jewish student to “go back to Palestine” after the student condemned their actions.
“Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center (FSWC) has reported that on Monday, February 27, 2017 at 8.30 AM a class was dismissed following the discovery of swastikas etched into the walls of a lecture hall at the Victor Phillip Dahdaleh building on campus.“FSWC noted that a similar incident happened last semester in the same classroom when a swastika was found etched in the chalk board. Both incidents were reported to Toronto Police.”
During a sermon at a London, Ontario mosque in 2011 an imam chastised his congregation for hiring Jewish lawyers. “Islamic institutions organizations are suing one another. All appointing lawyers. Who are these lawyers? Jews. And who is the judge? A Jew as well. Who is paying for these lawyers? You and I”, complained Riad Ouarzazi.
In November, 2016, a motion to hold Holocaust Education Week at Ryerson University was deliberately sabotaged by Obaid Ullah, Ryerson Student Union president, who orchestrated a mass walkout, causing a loss of quorum before the motion was put to a vote.
Prime Minister Trudeau, this is my Canada and I am tired of the continuing Jew hatred in my country. We worked so hard to get rid of it. And here it is again.
Until Islam cleans up its act , I will remain a #JEWISHISLAMOPHOBE
