The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), formerly designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada CAIR-CAN), has the support of political leaders and activists from six Canadian cities (Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor and London) for their Charter for Inclusive Communities, which aims at combatting the alleged rise in ‘Islamophobia’ and affirms certain principles, such as: “Islamophobia, like all other forms of racism, has no place in Canadian society.” (What ‘race’ is Islam?)
CounterJihad When Islamic exremists like NCCM mention ‘Islamophobia’ they essentially mean any criticism of Islamic beliefs or customs is considered hate. NCCM is the same group Jason MacDonald, former Director of Communications for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, accused to having “…documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas.” So much for NCCM representing the interest of ‘moderate’ Muslims.
Hate crimes against Muslim Canadians did increase from 2012 to 2014; however, the actual number of hate crimes against Muslim Canadians in 2014 is less than half of the total number of hate crimes committed against Jewish Canadians (99 to 213).
Islamofascist groups such as NCCM are using Canadian multiculturalism to champion this anti-Islamophobia campaign. CIJ News reports on how the Canadian Liberal Party, an advocate of multiculturalism, is helping to spread this Muslim victimhood type narrative:
NCCM’s [recent advocacy for this charter] comes one month after the Liberal Party, vowing to “aggressively eliminate Islamophobia”, approved a resolution at its 2016 Winnipeg Biennial Convention which condemned “all forms of Islamophobia” and recommended forming a Task Force to help the federal government shape its strategic vision to eliminate discrimination and hatred…
The resolution goes in line with the directive of Prime Minister Trudeau, who has repeatedly condemned actions perceived as possible hate crimes against Muslims in Canada.
After the Liberals won last fall’s elections, numerous “anti-Islamophobia” initiatives sprung up across Canada. Two confidential “Islamophobia hotlines” were launched in Edmonton and Vancouver in the spring….
In June, an $80,000 publicly-funded education campaign was launched in Toronto designed to address xenophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiments, and specifically “to dispel racist claims and hateful rumours against Syrian refugees”. The campaign is overseen by The Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants (OCASI) in partnership with the City of Toronto and NCCM.
Canadian leftists much like their American counterparts are promoting ‘Islamophobia’ awareness at the instruction of Muslim Brotherhood linked Islamofascist like CAIR who care nothing about liberal values such as ‘inclusion’ and ‘equality.’
Muslim extremists like NCCM want to implement sharia law by using the laws of a free society to stifle dissension (eg. discussing words like Sharia and jihad becomes anti-Muslim bigotry) and subvert our whole Western legal system. Canada and the rest of the West need to take proper measures to safeguard their societies from this
