The Canadian government tells us Islam is a religion of peace that has and continues to contribute greatly to the advancement of civilization.
There is no language in the Islamophobia motion M-103 that was passed in the Canadian parliament in 2017 that implies Islam was a religion of peace or Islam could be a religion of peace. It clearly states Islam IS a religion of peace.
So what exactly are reformers like Rahil Raza, Professor Irshad Manji and Dr Zuhdi Jasser proposing to reform, exactly? Are they saying there is something wrong with Islam as it is?
They have said on numerous occasions that there are hateful and supremacist verses in the Quran. If we believe them that means Islam is both supremacist and hateful. But we know that is a lie because the Islamophobia motion M-103 tells us that…
Obviously the Canadian government could not bring criminal charges against Dr. Jasser, he is American but they could against Rahil Raza and Professor Irshad Manji.
If the Canadian government does not put a stop to Islamophobes only because the Islamophobes identify as Muslim or lesbian that will open the door to others using identity as a shield to engage in Islamophobia.
The fight against Islamophobia must be fought without bias or prejudice if it is to be won.
The other aspect to this is that to reform someone is to remake them into other than what they are. A religion is a belief that is held at the very core of a person. For many Muslim it is what defines them. Being a Muslim is their identity.
Many psychologists agree that to discredit and reject behaviors fundamental to a person’s identity could do irreparable harm.
Some say that people that perpetrate Islamophobia in this clandestine manner are more harmful to the values of acceptance, tolerance and diversity to civilization than ISIS or al-Qaida.
April 12, 2014 in Oslo, Norway Yasir Qadhi gave a lecture. the following is an excerpt.
Senior scholars were duped byJuhayman.Senior scholars believed Juhayman to be righteous… What does that show you? It shows you that fanaticism exists in people that might otherwise appear to be righteous. Even to our scholars…
Most of the people who joined Juhayman’s movement are hafiz (memorized Quran) of the book of Allah. They were genuinely religious. They thought they were doing something good…. These are righteous people. But they’ve lost site of reality. They are so incensed and enraged at music and singing that they are willing to shed blood in the Kaba… And brothers and sisters, we see the same fanaticism in the modern jihadist movement…
Juhayman man wrote several pamphlets and I went through them for a conference that I was giving. It’s very scary. I am a man who has a master’s in theology. I know my religion I was reading his documents with a fine tooth comb. I was waiting to jump on something that I could say aha this shows he’s a deviant, aha this shows he’s a fanatic. I swear by Allah, I could barely find anything that gave me warning signals. It seemed to be very solid, very well argued, very passionate. And this terrified me.
Why? I have the advantage of hindsight looking back and I am going through his pamphlets with a fine tooth comb and I don’t find anything wrong. Many of my teachers knew him personally. They all said the same thing that we really thought he was a righteous pious individual. The movement of Juhayman is an interesting movement to study and it came from within the general Salafi tradition. Most of the people with him were from the University of Medina.
France Shuts Down Mosques. Emanuel Macron President of France in 2019 said “The whole nation (must) unite, mobilize, act… We will only win if our country gets up tofight against this underground Islamism that corrupts the children of France.” This was said in relation to 4 police man being stabbed by a 20 year old administrative worker.
As of April 5th 2022 French authorities have closed 22 mosques over the past 18 months, according to the interior ministry. Authorities have investigated some 90 out France’s total of roughly 2,500 Muslim places of worship on suspicions of spreading “separatist” ideology.
Justin Trudeau Canada’s prime minister, unlike France’s Emanuel Macron, aligns himself and the Liberal Party with the cause of the Muslim leaders and Muslim lobby groups.
France. after Macron became president – the French parliament adopted a new anti-terrorism law that bolstered police surveillance powers and made it easier to close mosques suspected of preaching hatred or cessation.
Canada in contrast in 2017 Omar Alghabra the honourable minister of transport revealed at a Muslim fundraising event.
I am here to tell you that next weekthe word Shia, Sunni and Islam will beremoved from the terror watch list.
This was done under the auspices of minister of security Ralph Goodale.
Omar Alghabra stated the following on a Toronto local ethnic TV broadcast.
We reformed the dual citizenship controversy and the anti-terror laws of the conservatives … We created an appeal process. So whether you are accused of terrorism, pedophilia even if you are guilty of pedophilia or terrorism your citizenship will not be revoked.
France in Contrast, Interior minister Gerald Darmanin, highlighted the government’s move on social media.
The sermons preached in this mosque legitimized in particular the use of armed jihad while cultivating a feeling of hatred towards France.
Literature available in all Canadian Muslim book stores:
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
It is evident from this Hadith that so long as Kufr [heresy] is present in this world, it is necessary to wage Jihad against it to finish it off, and so long as all the disbelievers do not openly accept Islam and adopt the Islamic way of life, Muslims are duty- bound to make Jihad against them.
France. The White Memo also lists five books found at the mosque that it identifies as “radical.” according to Daoud Riffi, who teaches Islam studies at the Lille Institute of Political Studies, four of them (bools) are widely available in specialist bookstores and online. The other one is, ‘Riyad as-Salihin’ or The Gardens of the Righteous.
Canada, Gardens of the Righteous. Is sold by the Canadian Charity ICNA Canada. This books makes clear that it is the duty of all Muslims to wipeout all unbelievers and secular governments and establish the supremacy of Islam. Violent jihad is a legitimate means to achieve this goal.
French government alleged in the white memo that preachers told worshippers France was a depraved country that would be punished by Allah, that they glorified armed jihad, and that some worshippers were heard calling for violent combat. France sees this as a reason to have closed this mosque.
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in contrast are big supporters of free Muslim religious speech. When Imams openly show support for the rise of the Taliban, subjugation of women or preach of death or killing Jews and Christians the liberal government keeps silent.

France is suffering suffering extensive Muslim jihadist attacks at a rate far greater than Canada.
Green Square campaign compared to the red poppy. On January 29, Politicians and Islamic leaders will stand shoulder to shoulder to commemorate National Islamophobia day. Green will be the colour of the day. NCCM encourages all Canadians to wear a Green Square in memory of the six killed in the Quebec mosque attack. Coast to coast Muslim prayers will ring out over the land. And for the next three hours Canadians will be commemorating. Full agenda and list of speakers.
Cities across Canada will set their most prominent monuments alight in green. This is done as we approach the 5th anniversary of the shooting at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Québec City.
Not all Canadians are in support of the Green Day campaign. Canadians ask if this will diminish the sacrifice of Canadian war veterans. One minute of silence per year commemorates 100 thousand dead and 110 thousand wounded. Library of archives
Imam Mazin Adhim posted on his FB page in 2019:
“Today is Remembrance Day. Here is an interesting conversation I had with my daughters about why we don’t celebrate it”
The Ottomans were Muslims. Remembrance Day first started after Britain and France and the others defeated us, killed millions of our people.
This clip was uploaded by Imam Mazin Adhim in November 2020 to clarify any misunderstanding of his position regarding the red poppy .
‘You people’: Don Cherry under fire for claiming new immigrants don’t wear Remembrance Day Poppies
‘You people. You love our way of life. You love our milk and honey. Least you can pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that,’ Cherry said.
Cherry, 85, had singled out new immigrants for not wearing poppies to honour Canada’s veterans and dead soldiers. For doing this he was cancelled. In comparison, the Imam who called Canadian veterans war criminal suffered no reprisals.
in November of 2019, I sent a media inquiry to Islamic schools in Ontario and Alberta. I asked them to respond to the statement made by a senior Muslim imam and scholar from London, Ontario that reads: “Islamic schools won’t have it [Remembrance Day] as a holiday because we don’t celebrate it.” As of November 23, 2019, none of the Islamic schools responded to the media inquiry.
On January 20, 2022 I sent another media inquiry. I have not received any reply as of the publishing of this article on January 27, 2022.
The following is the inquiry that I sent:
I am sending you and the following organizations a media inquiry: ICNA Canada, CCI (Canadian Council of Muslims). NCCM (National Council of Canadian Muslims), and MAC (Muslim Association of Canada).
NCCM is promoting the Green Square Campaign. The following is from NCCM’s website:
“In honour of the memory of the victims, in recognition of those who selflessly and courageously put themselves in harm’s way to protect others, and in solidarity with the survivors of this tragedy [Quebec mosque shooting], we mark this day by inviting each and every Canadian to stand with us by joining the Green Square Campaign.”
It was reported by the Mackenzie Institutethat ‘Imam’ of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Canada, Abdul-Adhim, openly stated, “No Muslim should honour the memory of those war criminals by wearing a poppy.”
Is NCCM calling for Canadians to wear the Green Square Campaign reciprocated by NCCM and the Muslim community leadership’s calling on all Canadian Muslims to wear the red poppy in November to commemorate fallen Canadian soldiers?
What is your message to those Muslim leaders who say that it is forbidden for Muslims to wear the poppy?
Do you agree or disagree with the statement by Imam Abdul-Adhim that Canadian soldiers are war criminals?
I will be publishing an article regarding the Green Square Campaign on January 23rd. I will include your reply in the article.
