Islam Lost! The nomination of Omar Alghabra.
I cringed in embarrassment when I logged on my PC to check out the latest BT posts.Who do I see winning the Liberal nomination for Mississauga-Erindale two weeks ago? None other than Omar Alghabra. Past President of Canadian Arab Federation.
Right from his acceptance speech, we see Mr. Alghabra's ignorance, bigotry and stupidity all wrapped in one.
On December 2, the Liberal candidate for Mississauga-Erindale, Omar Alghabra, made his victory speech after winning the nomination. In that speech, he reportedly exhorted his audience, "This is a victory for Islam! Islam won! Islam Won! ... Islamic power is extending into Canadian politics".
I won't get into the MSM's hypocrisy on the matter, Damien and Craig Smith have already done that. What I do take offense to is his tone and confusion of facts.
1. Now what does Mr.. Alghabra mean when he says "Islam Won! Islamic Power is extending to Canadian Politics."? Does he innocently mean that Muslims in Canada finally have representation in the parliamentary system? If that's the case, then we already see Mr. Alghabra's ignorance in Canadian political affairs. There already is a Muslim in Parliament today, and his name is Rahim Jaffer. Remember him? One of the youngest MP's ever to be elected, responsible for many important portfolios for the opposition, successful entrepreneur, and oh yeah, the first Muslim to be elected in Parliament. But unlike Alghabra, Jaffer never really screamed at the top of his lungs that his elation victories were "Victory for Islam" but simply as a victory for Edmonton-Strathcona.
For Alghabra to take credit for "representing Muslims" in parliament is ignorant to put it kindly.
Now if he litterly means that he plans to bring "Islamic powers into Canadian politics" well...I'll just let your imagination run wild.
(Take notice of the difference of the two camps, Rahim Jaffer, Conservative, doesn't consider himself to be a "Muslim politician" but simply as a "Politician who happens to be Muslim". He doesn't wear his religion as a cheap campaign button, he keeps it to himself. Alghabra, a Liberal, on the other hand considers his role as an "extension of Islamic powers". Who really has the religious agenda here?)
2. Now Alghabra's comments would have been just a tiny bit better had he not spewed his filth in a Coptic Christian Centre! The Copts (Egyptian Christians) being one of the most hard hit victims of "Islamic power" that Alghabra's aims to extend. To have the nerve to speak positively about "Islamic Power" in their community center is almost like praising Nazism in a Synagogue.
3. The more I think about it, the more I realize that Mr. Alghabra's stupidity knows no bounds. Now what exactly does the Liberal Party have in common with the Islamic community?
Same Sex marriage? Drug Legalization? Legalizing prostitution? The abysmal Immigration system where you have doctors and engineers from the Middle East become Taxi drivers and Pizza Delivery boys? Practically everything the Liberal platform are at odds of the beliefs and interests of Muslim community. With the exception of one thing and one thing only, the Anti-Israel stance. *Sigh* ..yes as we all know, Anti-Zionism trumps everything in the Muslim community.
If this tells us anything, is that Islam in Canada has lost. It has lost the sigh of its main interests, it has lost its logic and most importantly it has lost the respect of another minority community.
But hey, let's look at the Brightside, thanks to Mr. Alghabra, the Canadian Coptic community (Which is VERY powerful in the 905 region) has run to into the loving arms of the Conservative Party.
Liberals bring Islamists one step closer to Parliament
Having won the Liberal nomination for Mississauga-Erindale, Omar Alghabra shouted to the audience, "This is a victory for Islam! Islam won! Islam Won!" He went on to praise how "Islamic power is extending into Canadian politics". His performance was witnessed by hundreds including Rogers Cable, and his theocratic rant was cheered by many in the audience.
These are chilling words to a nation that has been identified as a terrorist target by Osama Bin Laden and has witnessed how "Islamic power is extending" itself into Western democracies through the slaughter of innocents in Madrid, London, New York, Beirut, Netanya, Bali and practically every country in the world. The Islamist declaration of Liberal candidate Omar Alghabra could have come from an al Qaeda mouthpiece.
And the Liberals dare to say that Stephen Harper is scary! I will take my chances with a free vote on same-sex marriage over a Liberal parliamentarian preaching the same expansionist Islamic rhetoric that incites those who will kill and maim innocent Canadians.
Clearly, the lives and values of Canadians are expendable to the Liberal party as long as they have a winning candidate.
