Canadian senate passes bill that removes right to revoke citizenship from terrorists

For many Canadians the most troubling change is the non revoking of Canadian citizenship even if the individual is convicted of terrorism.

The interests of terrorists have been prioritized over the well-being of Canadians, all in the name of political correctness and multiculturalism at any cost.

In 2015, the jihadist who masterminded the plot to “bomb Parliament and several buildings in the heart of downtown Toronto” became “the first Canadian in history to have citizenship revoked under Bill C-24, a controversial Conservative measure passed last spring,” but now bill C-6 “would automatically reinstate citizenship for dual nationals such as Zakaria Amara.”

Senate passes bill that removes the right to revoke citizenship from terrorists

The Senate passed Bill C-6 on Wednesday (May 3, 2017) after debating for almost a year on changes affecting citizenship, children’s rights and language requirements.

Bill C-6 which proposes changes to the Citizenship Act, removes the right to revoke citizenship from dual nationals who are convicted terrorists; ends the obligation for new citizens 14 -18 and 55 -65 to know either English or French; reduces the number of days someone must spend in Canada before they are eligible for citizenship; minors can apply for citizenship independent of their parents.

For many Canadians the most troubling change is the non revoking of Canadian citizenship even if the individual is convicted of terrorism. If passed in the House of Commons, it would automatically reinstate citizenship for dual nationals such as Zakaria Amara, a member of the Toronto 18 who intended to bomb downtown Toronto. Under the Conservatives’ Bill C-24, he had his citizenship revoked last fall. Responding to criticism from the Conservatives about Bill C-6, Prime Minister Trudeau and cabinet ministers repeated “a Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian”.

Dr. Iqbal Al-Nadvi (Mohammad Iqbal Masood Al-Nadvi) is the Chairperson of Canadian Council of Imams (Canada’s top imam) and the Amir (President) of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Canada, a nation-wide Islamic organization that is striving “to build an Exemplary Canadian Muslim Community” by “total submission to Him [Allah] and through the propagation of true and universal message of Islam.” He also serves as the Muslim Chaplain of the Canadian army.

Nadvi’s previous positions include: Director of Al-Falah Islamic School in Oakville, Ontario from 2004 to 2011, Imam of Muslim Association of Calgary Islamic Center from 1998-2004 and as a member of the University of Calgary chaplaincy team.

In a panel discussion in Toronto on the “Finality of Prophethood”, Nadvi called Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the founder of Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam a “false prophet” who abrogated the jihad in contradiction to an explicit hadith by Mohammad who said the the jihad will continue to the end of time. The following is an excerpt from Nadvi’s speech (January 12, 2013):

Senator Frum on Foreign Interference in Canadian Elections


Speech by the Governor General of Canada at the Ceremony Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

“On this day a century ago, as dawn broke over Vimy Ridge, the morning air suddenly exploded with an unholy roar.

“The noise has been compared to a physical assault, shattering the quiet of daybreak.

“It was the deafening sound of a thousand howitzers, field guns, mortars and mines firing together, in unison.

“It was the sound of 15 000 Canadians charging into battle from tunnels, from trenches and dugouts.”

Hamas-linked Canadian charity is fighting to be removed from terror list

A Canadian Islamic organization which lost its charitable status and was subsequently listed by Public Safety Canada as a terrorist group for transferring over $14 million worth of resources to various organizations linked to Hamas between 2005 and 2009, is fighting to be removed from the terror list.

In an application filed with the Federal Court on February 24, 2017, International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy-Canada (IRFAN-Canada) is requesting the Minister of Public Safety to de-list the organization as a terrorist entity and to be awarded the costs of the application.

IRFAN-Canada claims that it did not “directly or indirectly” assist Hamas, its humanitarian work did not constitute association for terrorist purposes, and the original designation as a terrorist entity which it considers to be unreasonable and unconstitutional, is without merit.

Public Safety Canada describes Hamas as a radical Islamist-nationalist terrorist organization which uses political and violent means to pursue its goal of establishing an Islamic Palestinian state in Israel and which has been responsible for several hundred terrorist attacks against both civilian and military targets.

A troubling new report suggests Montreal’s Trudeau International Airport has been infiltrated by radicalized individuals.

According to an investigative journalism report from the public affairs program JE, aired on the Quebec-based French-language station TVA, several employees at the airport were stripped of their security clearance due to radicalization and support for the Islamic State.

The investigation found that one employee with airport security clearance reportedly shared Islamic State propaganda videos, including graphic imagery of torture and murder, through social media accounts.

Imam calling for Jews to be killed in sermon at Montreal mosque draws police complaint

by Brennan Neill and Stephen Smith
CBC News
March 23, 2017

A Montreal mosque is facing a police complaint and rebukes from the larger Muslim community after a video of an imam delivering a sermon in which he asks for Jews to be killed surfaced online.

The sermon took place at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city’s Saint-Michel neighbourhood on Dec. 23, 2016.

The video was posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel three days later. The imam in the video is Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr — he was reportedly an invited guest of the mosque.

In the video, the imam recites in Arabic the verse: “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

Canada: Death knell for freedom of speech as House of Commons passes “anti-Islamophobia” motion

by Robert Spencer
Jihad Watch
March 23, 2017

Imagine if a “right-wing extremist,” say, a white supremacist, had killed three people in London yesterday. Do you think Canada would have today passed a motion condemning a “phobia” of white supremacists?

The supporters of the Canadian bill condemning “Islamophobia” insist that it will not restrict the freedom of speech, but interim Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose was more realistic: she said that she was concerned that charges of “Islamophobia” would be used “to intimidate rather than to inform,” and added: “I do worry that some of my work trying to empower women and girls in Muslim communities could be branded as ‘Islamophobic’ if I criticize practices that I believe are oppressive.”

Canada: Bring on the Islamization!

by Judith Bergman

March 23, 2017

Imams in Canadian mosques have been inciting the killing of “infidels”, primarily Jews, for years. This agitation appears to have had no visible impact on Canadian parliamentarians, evidently too busy with petitions and motions banning alleged “Islamophobia”.

In 2009, for example, Toronto-area imam Said Rageah, at the Abu Huraira Centre, called on Allah to “destroy” the enemies of Islam from within and “damn” the “infidel” Jews and Christians.

“Allah protect us from the fitna [sedition, affliction] of these people; Allah protect us from the evil agenda of these people; Allah destroy them from within themselves, and do not allow them to raise their heads” prayed the imam.

Toronto: Muslim prof says “nothing radical” about wanting Sharia and caliphate

March 17, 2017

Professor Katherine Bullock from the University of Toronto said:

from an Islamic point of view this absolutely nothing radical about wanting Caliphate or wanting Sharia. These are completely normal traditional points of view.

Bullock is right. Normative Islam is political Islam. One need only look at Islamic states to understand the nature and centrality of the Sharia in them. Every Muslim knows this, including those Muslims who were persecuted and killed throughout history trying to reform Islam. The Islamic Supreme Council of America certainly knows it:

Quebec Imam says Islamic ruling on slave-girls was not abrogated

Dr. Ewis El Nagar (عويس النجار), the head of the Islamic Edicts Committee (لجنة الفتوى) of Quebec Council of Imams (Conseil des Imams Québec) who also serves as the Imam leader of Dawah (outreach, “call to Islam”) at the Canadian Islamic Centre in Montreal, says that the Islamic ruling on marrying slave women/ girls was not abrogated and it is applicable when the legitimate jihad is launched against the disbelievers.

According to Islamic law, sex assaults on infidel women are permitted:

“The Quran” (Saheeh International) that is being distributed for free across Canada by Islamic groups provides the legal basis of this ruling. Verse 24 of Surah (chapter) an-Nisa (The Women) states the following:

And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess.177 [This is] the decree of Allah upon you.

These are immutable religious edicts. In Islamic law, what is considered to have been determined by Allah must not be challenged (see Qur’an 33:36). To do so is strictly forbidden. The Sharia is also considered to be divine law, above all other laws.

March 11, 2017

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 http://www.hadithcollection.com):

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.

Ubaidullah has reported this hadith with this chain of transmitters (and the Words are): “There is a Jew behind me.”

Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You and the Jews would fight against one another until a stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.

Mayor Calls Criticism Of Muslim Prayers In School ‘Hate Speech’

by David Krayden
Daily Caller
March 10, 2017

Brampton, Ontario Mayor Linda Jeffrey is dismissing critics who object to Muslim students having Friday prayer sessions in public schools as purveyors of “misinformation and hateful speech.” Jeffrey was responding to critics in a letter she released Thursday as Toronto-area parents in the Peel District School Board are preparing a full-scale protest on Saturday to demand that public schools not promote one religion over another.

The parents have organized a “Canada First” movement and plan a “Walk to Oppose Religion in Schools” this weekend at Celebration Square near Square One in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto. They are also opposed to the motion introduced by local Liberal Member of Parliament Iqra Khalid that would ban “Islamophobia” and potentially make their protest subject to hate crimes legislation.

Canada’s New Blasphemy Laws

by Khadija Khan
Gatestone Institute
March 8, 2017

A resolution, M-103, seeking to condemn so-called “Islamophobia,” was introduced a few weeks ago in the peaceful country of Canada by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid in the House of Commons, sparking a controversy.

A similar motion, labelled M-37, was later tabled in the Ontario provincial legislature by MPP Nathalie Des Rosiers on February 23, 2017, and was passed by the provincial parliament.

M-37, like its predecessor, demanded that lawmakers condemn “all forms of Islamophobia” and reaffirm “support for government efforts, through the Anti-Racism Directorate, to address and prevent systemic racism across government policy, programs and services”.

Although these motions are not legally binding, extremists have already started demanding them as laws.

There are, of course, no comparable motions against “Judeophobia” or “Christianophobia”.

Neither motion M-103 nor motion 37 exactly define “Islamophobia,” leaving that to the imagination of the supposed victim(s).

CTV, CBC display Muhammad cartoons protest placards online

by Christine Williams

March 7, 2017

M-103 is an “anti-Islamophobia” motion that is causing upheaval in Canada, where one hears nary a peep out of any other group, but only from Muslims.

Opponents of M-103 led a March for Freedom at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, outside City Hall. CIJ News reported that the demonstration “achieved one of its goals to allow free speech on matters related any religion, ideology or idea”:

CBC and CTV’s coverage of the protest included videos that for the first time displayed cartoons featuring Mohammad…

Mainstream media reporters, however, continue to slam free-speech protesters for supposedly displaying bigotry against Muslims, but fair coverage will reveal that organizers of these protests are not against Muslims at all, but simply oppose the encroachment of Sharia norms in the West. The foundation of our rights and freedoms is the freedom of speech. Some Western countries already have hate speech laws, but if the freedom to criticize any religion or dogma — even in ways some might find offensive — is removed, the freedom of speech is a dead letter. That is the valid reason to vehemently oppose M-103.

Humor on McGill University campus: ‘Punch a Zionist’

by Vivian Bercovici
Jerusalem Post
March 7, 2017

On February 6, 2017, Igor Sadikov, an undergraduate student at Montreal’s McGill University, tweeted: “Punch a Zionist today.”

Sadikov sat on the Legislative Council and board of directors of the Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU). He is reportedly a strong supporter of the BDS movement at McGill and a former news editor of The McGill Daily, a once storied campus paper that has launched the careers of many fine journalists. These days, the paper refuses to publish articles which “promote a Zionist worldview.”

Sadikov explained his outburst in a very sober apology posted on Facebook on February 16 – a full 10 days following his tweet – as a “misguided joke with a political meaning, rather than a credible call for violence.”

His miscalculated humor was clearly referencing the “punch a Nazi” meme, which, a week earlier, had been trending sharply on social media, after an “alt-right” American was punched in the face while being interviewed.

That incident gave rise to much navel gazing in the press as to whether it is acceptable to incite and applaud violence against, well, a Nazi. Sadikov, who has very strong views about the legitimacy of the State of Israel, likely sees Zionists as quite similar to Nazis. Hence his adoption of the offensive meme. His tweet was no joke.

Asylum seekers began streaming in from US upon Trudeau election, long before Trump immigration order

by Christine Williams

March 6, 2017

Upon Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration that would see a temporary ban on Muslim immigration from the countries that pose the worst threat to American homeland security, Trudeau immediately sent out a tweet to welcome all asylum seekers to Canada. He was met with joy from those who did not stop to consider the Muslim migrant chaos in Europe, as well as the fact that the refugees would not be properly vetted by Canada. News then broke that asylum seekers began streaming into Canada at an alarming rate to escape the Trump order, which was actually not the case. The refugees began their hijra into Canada upon the Trudeau election win.

Statistics provided to The Canadian Press show claim levels generally began rising in Canada before U.S. President Donald Trump took office.

In fact, the increase seems to have begun just as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took power.

That’s because when Trudeau was first elected, illegal refugees and asylum seekers knew all too well whom they could exploit: the liberal mindset would put citizens’ interests beneath theirs. Canada’s doors to unvetted refugees were finally flung wide open, exposing Canadians to what has rocked Europe.

Trudeau examining ways to silence “hateful criticism” over “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103

by Christine Williams
Jihad Watch
March 6, 2017

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is now considering unspecified actions to hamper free speech and silence hateful criticism…. According to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) the Liberal government is prepared to “tackle any form of hate or threat” directed at Members of Parliament (MP).

Every member of Parliament — and indeed, every Canadian — is entitled to work and live in an environment that is free of hate speech and the threat of violence,” PMO spokesman Cameron Ahmad wrote.

Every citizen in Canada is also entitled to live in a country where he or she feels safe from jihad terror and the Islamic agenda of civilizational jihad and conquest outlined in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan for North America.

The controversy in Canada over hatred and threats allegedly directed to Members of Parliament (MP) is part of the larger controversy over Toronto-area MP Iqra Khalid’s efforts to force through “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103. The Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs, among others, presented her with the option of promoting instead a motion against “anti-Muslim bigotry,” rejecting the term “Islamophobia” as “misleading, ambiguous, and politically charged,” but Khalid remains resolute in pushing her anti- “Islamophobia” agenda, which is widely seen as a first step to curb the freedom of speech.
