Canada: Niagara Muslim Family conference keynote speaker views Jews as "monkeys, pigs, aggressors and filth"
If Canada is true to its claim to be diverse, multicultural, accepting, and tolerant, then it is telling that the groups identified below are attending this event where the keynote speaker views Jews as "monkeys, pigs, aggressors and filth." Where is the Canadian media in reporting on this? There should be an outcry from all Jewish groups and from anyone who values human rights.
NOTE: At the bottom of the above linked article, there is a letter written to Canadian Border Services by Major Russ Cooper (Ret'd). Please read!
Hizb ut-Tahrir Canada to hold its annual conference in Mississauga, ON
Hizb ut-Tahrir Canada calls for the establishment of the global Islamic State, the Caliphate, and the implementation of the Islamic Law, the Sharia. Its leaders, including in Canada, urge the Muslim armies to topple the current "corrupt" regimes in order to pave the way for uniting the Muslim world under the banner of the Caliphate. This event is being promoted on Facebook.
Worried by rise of far-right groups, Canada puts millions into anti-racism effort
Trudeau addressed them several times including at the commemorations of the first anniversary of the Quebec City mosque shooting, where he referred to them in French as "racists" and "dumdums who walk around with dog paws on a T-shirt" who contributed to inflaming tensions. But Trudeau's Liberal Party has warned the government to tread carefully in its efforts to address racism and nationalism. A previous motion by the party to condemn Islamophobia last year sparked a major backlash and outrage in the opposition Conservative party.
Corrupt Sikhs Have Justine Trudeau in Their Pocket
Trudeau's desire to get Sikh votes has blinded him to history and to the Canadian victims of crude Sikh violence. He seems completely unaware that crude Sikhs assassinated India's PM Indira Gandhi and that in doing so, they probably permanently alienated a significant part of India's population. Here are some more details for him and those who support him: In 1985, Crude Sikhs loaded a bomb on an Air India flight in Vancouver and succeeded in murdering 320+ passengers aboard that plane which exploded over Ireland. That incident is not a small detail in Canadian history.
Canada's offer to resettle asylum seekers from Israel still on table despite freeze on UN deal
Canada negotiating on the sly with Israel to take thousands of Eritrean asylum seekers. Where's the transparency? Why all Muslim and no Christian refugees in the mix? Can we discuss without being Islamophobic?
'Birth tourists' believed to be using Canada's citizenship laws as back door into the West
These women were believed to be "birth tourists." They wanted to deliver on Canadian soil so their children would be Canadian citizens. In addition to receiving all the benefits of citizenship, when they became adults their "Canadian" children could also sponsor the parents to immigrate. Aside from the United States, Canada is the last remaining developed nation that still grants citizenship to everyone born in the country, regardless of the circumstances. As a result, giving birth in Canada has become, to some, a back door into the West.
Canada: Muslims seek to erect Muslim housing complex in Jewish community
What could possibly go wrong? The proposed development is located in the heart of one of Canada's largest Jewish communities. This monstrosity of a development will stick a knife through the heart of this quiet and largely Jewish populated community. The proposed development is on the site of the Jaffari Community Centre, which according to the Toronto chapter of the Jewish Defense League promotes jihad and participates in the Israel hating Al-Quds Rally.
School caretakers forced to come clean with their biases
Starting Tuesday, all lead caretakers at the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) will spend one day learning how to be more diverse and inclusive when they clean their schools. A description provided by a board staffer who contacted me about this mishegos (Yiddish for "nonsense") notes that "deep diversity" training will teach participants how to "detect, name and reduce" their "unconscious bias" and to understand how "stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination are a combined result of history, socialization as well as brain processes."
Scheer Strongly Condemns Defacing Of Halifax Churches, Trudeau Still Silent On Anti-Christian Hate
Justin Trudeau was very quick to comment on the Hijab Hoax story, yet over 24 hours after two Catholic Churches in Halifax were defaced, Trudeau hasn't said anything. So, Trudeau - or whoever runs his account - found time to tweet about a restaurant opening, but no time to tweet about a hateful message scrawled on two houses of faith in our country on the Holy day of Easter Sunday.
Freedom of Speech
This spring, the fight to protect free speech in Canada continues by Barbara Kay
In the left's intolerant world, one doesn't defend the right to speak for people whose views one dislikes. Leftists therefore consider it reasonable to ask those they disagree with to de-platform themselves in order to avoid tension. But I am not causing the tension. Instead of asking me to respect the heckler's vote preemptively, why aren't those who deplore me - the real deplorables - asked to simmer down in the interest of free intellectual exchange?

The slippery slide away from freedom: Supreme court ruling in Vriend v. Alberta by John Carpay
In Canada today, expressing the "wrong" opinions will result in not being allowed to open or run a law school (even one acknowledged to be academically sound), not being allowed to adopt children, and not being allowed to maintain religious schools and universities.
How Canada Bans Books
As the protection of collective dignities becomes a growing political priority, governments begin to crack down on more forms of supposed hate speech.
When the state gains the power to outlaw certain forms of expression as "hate speech" - a rising demand in some corners of America these days - the result is rarely a decrease in hate but always expanded power for grotesque new forms of bureaucratic busybodying.
We Need to Talk About Canada: Multiculturalism Isn't Working
Canada became officially multicultural when it passed the Canadian Multiculturalism Act in 1985. That Act legislates, among other things, that we are to "recognize and promote the understanding that multiculturalism reflects the cultural and racial diversity of Canadian society, and acknowledges the freedom of all members of Canadian society to preserve, enhance and share their cultural heritage."
Sir Charles James Napier, was the Governor of Sindh, and Commander-in-Chief in India (1843-1847).
Napier opposed suttee. This was the custom of burning a widow alive on the funeral pyre of her husband. The priests complained to him that this was a customary religious rite, and that customs of a nation should be respected. As recounted by his brother William, he replied:
"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."
Trudeau's #WelcomeToCanada Tweet Caused Internal Government Chaos
Virtue-signaling has a price. As we saw after Trudeau's Tweet ("To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada," Trudeau said on Twitter Jan. 28, 2017) there was a surge of illegal border crossings, which the government encouraged with their weak response. This caused serious concern in border communities, put stress on our social services, and could have long-term implications for security, since many people may have sneaked into our country unbeknownst to anyone.
Trudeau 'Refugees Welcome' Tweet Caused Havoc as 500 Migrants Illegally Entered Canada over Easter
Prime Minister Trudeau made his "refugees welcome" tweet in January of 2017, writing: "To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada," which spurred a flurry of inquiries and led to confusion within the government, the National Post reports.
Canada's Immigration & Refugee Numbers Should Be Decided in a National Referendum
With Bob Rae recommending that Canada grant refugee status to the Rohingya in Myanmar, and the Trudeau government having apparently agreed to bring in rejected asylum claimants from Israel, the debate over Canada's immigration refugee policies is set to continue. Every 5 or 10 years, Canada's immigration and refugee numbers should be decided in a national referendum. The reason for this is clear: Because immigration and refugee policy has such wide-ranging and long-term ramifications for the future of our nation, it's not acceptable for it to be left to the whim of whichever government happens to be in power.
Why can't we speak plainly about migrant crime?
Social media networks - especially Facebook and Twitter - have in recent months begun a 'scraping' of their platforms. Embarrassed by their intermittent exposure by the old media, they also face threats of increasing liabilities from national governments and security agencies. So platforms, which have for years allowed terrorist groups like Hezbollah to proselytize with impunity have now begun to try to enforce a new, higher standard.
Google Snubs Easter for 18th Year in a Row
For the 18th year in a row, Google refused to honor the Christian holiday of Easter with a celebratory "doodle" on its website, despite commemorating similar Hindu and Jewish festivals and dedicating an entire page to the Muslim festival of Ramadan. Christians and conservatives on Twitter noted that Google did not put up a doodle to commemorate the holiday on Sunday.
Let Tommy Tweet
A recent attempt to control political discussion by another social-media giant was met largely with a shrug. Yes, when it came to Twitter's permanent ban on right-wing rabble-rouser and ex-English Defence League front-man Tommy Robinson, these worriers about the political power of Silicon Valley didn't protest; if anything, they cheered. Entrusting huge private companies to dictate which ideas are palatable and which are not is a deeply illiberal and foolish thing to do. It would be far better for Twitter users to push back and tell the company's owners to stop being so patronizing and chilling towards their users.
Why Trump is Right about Amazon
Amazon is a massive wrecking machine consuming American retail. It's looting the economy and leaving behind rubble. And the consolidation of the internet under Amazon and Google isn't just destroying businesses; it's wiping out political and personal freedom.

A Historic Step in Austria?
Something unprecedented took place in Austria in December 2017 - and hardly anyone outside the country noticed: For the first time in Western Europe, a government took power that advocates anti-immigration and anti-Islamization policies.

BREAKING POINT REDUX: Hungary Throws Down the Gauntlet on Mass Migration with UKIP-style Poster
Hungary's governing party has launched an anti-mass migration billboard campaign in the style of Brexit leader Nigel Farage's famous 'Breaking Point' poster from the EU referendum. Striking a similar tone in Budapest on Wednesday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told listeners "the people of Budapest will decide" whether or not they want their city to end up like the capitals of "immigrant countries" in Western Europe, such as Berlin, London, and Paris.
Gaza Muslims burn Israel border with thousands of tires
Palestinians plan to engulf the Gaza border with smoke and flames from thousands of burning tires on Friday as Israel holds firm to its order to shoot any protesters who come close to the security barrier.In the past several days, groups of young Gazans have been collecting old tires around the Strip and bringing them to the border. Palestinians intend to light the tires on fire to blur the vision of the soldiers on the Israeli side of the security fence, according to a Gaza-based source familiar with preparations for what he called "the Friday of Old Tires.
Special Report: Rohingya Reality with Tom Quiggin
Bob Rae has produced two reports on Myanmar. Neither of the reports even mentions Harakat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami Arakan in which was formed in Pakistan back in 1988. The goal of this group, active there now, was to liberate the Muslim-dominated Burmese state of Rakhine. Nothing in either report mentions at all that Burmese are terrified of the spread of extremist Islam thought out south east Asia.
Saudi Crown Prince: Iran's Supreme Leader 'Makes Hitler Look Good'
About his bête noir, the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Prince Mohammed said, "I believe the Iranian supreme leader makes Hitler look good.

For Erdogan, The Silences Are Deafening
An article published in the Turkish daily Yeni Safak, a paper with close ties to Erdogan, called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint "Army of Islam" to besiege and attack the state of Israel. It noted that such a joint army would greatly exceed the Israeli army in manpower, equipment, and budget.
Murders in London Overtake New York for First Time Since 1800 Under Sadiq Khan
London has overtaken New York City for number of murders for the first time in over 200 years under the mayoralty of Labour's Sadiq Khan.
The change is partly a consequence of Mayor Khan's campaign against using stop and search on ethnic minorities, with London police chief Cressida Dick admitting that constables have become "fearful" of confronting suspects as they "might get into trouble or might not be supported if they had a complaint".
Six Stabbed in Another Night of Violence as Sadiq Khan Dodges Blame For London Crime
Another six young people have been stabbed overnight in Sadiq Khan's London, which recently surpassed New York City for murders for the first time since 1800. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the fall in the use of stop-and-search since 2010 was "welcome" before he took office, and that he would "do everything in my power to bring it down further" - believing its use on ethnic minorities was problematic.

Katie adds that there is a growing grassroots movement to remove the mayor from office.
Telford and the Left
The sleepy town of Telford, England, is home to the latest bout of grooming gangs and child sexual exploitation. On March 11, the Mirror revealed the results of an eighteen-month investigation into the rape and sexual trafficking of up to 1,000 girls, some as young as 11, with offenses dating back to the early 1980s. It is said to be the UK's worst and most prolific case of child sexual abuse. The fact the majority of the perpetrators are Pakistani Muslims is an uncomfortable fact, especially for the politically correct leftist droves.
Does the "U.S. Pentagon" know what is in this Koran?
This map of the Middle East shows 76 towns/locations related to the previously listed prophets, and the countries in which those towns/locations are now located. This map lists modern country names such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Tashkent, India, and Sri Lanka. But the map does not show the name Israel; instead it shows "Palestine."So the Koran that was distributed to military personnel at Parris Island and at the Pentagon contained a map of the Middle East denying the existence of the State of Israel.
Education Jihad: Promoting Islam in American Schools by Janet Levy
The re-engineering of the education system to disproportionately highlight the virtues and contributions of Islamic ideology is part of "civilizational jihad," the enemy's term for the subversion of our society. It was defined in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," presented as evidence in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial. The document calls for the stealth takeover of North America through infiltration of all of society, with the ultimate goal of destroying the U.S. and turning it into a Muslim nation.
The Trap Door to Escape Sharia: Dr. Bill Warner
There is constant pressure from Islam for Kafirs to submit to the Sharia. Most Kafirs think that if we accommodate their demands, then Muslims will be satisfied, and we can go back to our lives. Wrong answer. The pressure from Islam will never cease until there is 100% submission.
Married to a Child? Here's a Brochure! By Bruce Bawer
This is not the first asinine move on the part of the Swedish government, and it won't be the last. Perhaps it's best to focus on the positive: the fact that a good many Swedes, even in top government positions, are snapping out of reflexive appeasement mode and, when confronted with a piece of nonsense like "Information for Those who Are Married to Children," are capable of experiencing - and expressing - indignation where indignation, and nothing less, is called for. Alas, it doesn't look as if this sorry episode will do anything whatsoever to alter the fact that there are child brides living in Sweden - where they are raped, beaten, subjected to genital mutilation, and impregnated at ages when they should be playing with dolls and learning to read.
The "Moderate" Muslim Scholar Industry
If we play the game of misinforming and misleading people about Islamism, by making irrelevant analogies to whitewash the violence and terrorism which are generated by Islamic fundamentalism, we are indoctrinating the literally millions of innocent children who will be either the perpetrators or victims of the next radical Islamic terror attacks -- including Muslims.
Tariq Ramadan and Hush Money
A few months ago, Tariq Ramadan was the golden boy of Islamic apologists, offering his suave taqiyya to audiences throughout Western Europe. He held a prestigious post as a professor at St. Antony's College, Oxford, with a chair funded especially for him by the Emir of Qatar. But now he is on "leave" from Oxford, a "leave" that is undoubtedly going to be permanent. And he can't very well head his Islamic Law and Ethics Research Center sinecure in Qatar when he has been told not to set foot in Qatar ever again.
EU top dog: "Islam is part of our history, Islam is part of our present and Islam will be part of our future"
Timmermans said in press statements after the meeting that "the Commission is strongly committed to promoting diversity in Europe. Islam is part of our history, Islam is part of our present and Islam will be part of our future." "The way we help our citizens - whatever their background may be - to embrace the diversity that is a reality in European societies is going to determine much of our collective future," he said.
"Europe will be Muslim, if it is the will of Allah"
Confronted with Erdogan's arrogance, Europe not only does not react, but is silent. It is silent on the violation of human rights in Turkey; it is silent on the invasion of Syrian Kurdistan; it is silent on the naval block imposed on the ENI platform in Cyprus; it is silent on the threats against the Greek Islands. And regarding the declaration of the proximate Islamization of our continent, not only is the European Union silent but also the Church. Erdogan's strength is this incriminating silence.
Jihadis Continue to Strike Around the Globe
In the last 30 days, jihadis (sharia adherent muslims) have committed 144 attacks in 24 countries around the globe, reminding us the war is yet flagrant. The religion of peace.
