Muslim organizations in Canada are using the same techniques used in their own counties or origin; namely intimidations, accusations,Â insults and threats. They do notÂ understand that these techniques backfire against them. Yes, and immediately.
Jason Kenney, the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, issued a statement yesterday condemning the bigoted pro-Hamas rallies across Canada.
The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, today issued the following statement regarding displays of hatred and violence at recent protests across Canada:
"Like many Canadians, I am deeply concerned about allegations of the incitement to hatred and violence at recent protests across Canada."
"It is shocking to think that flags of banned terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah are being flown in the streets of Canadian cities. The ideals these terrorist organizations preach are abhorrent to the fundamental values of the Canadian people and of all civilized peoples: freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law."
"The open incitement of hatred has absolutely no place in Canadian society. We offer our condolences to all innocent victims of armed conflict and to those affected by repeated acts of terror. We remain vigilant in upholding fundamental Canadian values."
The Government of Canada lists Hezbollah and Hamas as banned terrorist organizations under the provisions of Canada’s Criminal Code.
It’s a solid statement (though the use of the word "allegations" to describe the protesters’ behaviour is a little bit odd.) Kenney understands what the fools at the Canadian Jewish Congress don’t: this battle against Canadian terrorist sympathizers won’t be won through criminal prosecutions of political supporters of Hamas. That’s slow, expensive, and will fail — it’s not a crime to be an Islamic fascist in Canada. The Official Jews are stuck on censorship as a solution; it’s all they know. Kenney understands that it is about reasserting age-old Canadian values such as the rule of law, and to drum that into newcomers, especially those from Arab and Muslim countries.I haven’t seen a lot of media pick-up of Kenney’s comments; and frankly, I don’t expect to see it. It’s good that Kenney said them; and the various ethnic groups he deals with will no doubt be listening. But what’s needed is for the Prime Minister himself to denounce the rallies — to get both national attention, and to set the moral example from the very top, that such bigoted displays are not acceptable in Canada.
