Look who's talking!

What I'm about to describe reflects EVERYTHING that's wrong with the Muslim Community in Canada and worldwide. Key word to keep in mind here: Hypocrisy.

The CIC released a pathetic press release regarding Stephen Harper's cabinet positions. Key Quotes:

With yesterday's new federal Conservative cabinet appointments, the Canadian Islamic Congress fears that police-state politics which began under the former Liberal regime will soon emerge in an accelerated and enlarged form.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Just for the sake reasoning, let's assume that the Conservatives have a secret plan to turn Canada into a police state. (I know! I know! but let's just try to get into their mindset). Let's assume the worst: The Conservatives will accelerate the police state.

But one tricky question arises in all this. Why does the CIC urge caution to one "police state" threat, while urging people to embrace another?

A few days after the Canadian federal election, you probably remember the Canadian Islamic Congress' "warning" to Harper to respect the democratic decision in the Palestinian territories after he hinted that he won't recognize the results over there until Hamas renounces terrorism.

Let's have a look into what Hamas' domestic policy has in place for the Palestinian people:

1. The implementation of Sharia Law.
2. A "Supervised" policy to monitor the press in order to edit out "un-Islamic" theory.
3. Requiring all Women to be veiled.
4. Imposing a Dihmi Tax on Palestinian Christians and Druze.
5. The banning of certain leisure's such as Music, Dancing, Art, Movies, etc...

In other words a mechanism to control every aspect of Palestinian society into their own image. The suppression of individual freedom in the name of "Islamic Values". Does this sound like a Police State to you? I sure as hell do think so.

So why, in the name of everything that's holly, do they encourage people to embrace this "Police State" (A Hamas dominated Palestine) while warning us to be vigilant to another (Supposedly under a Conservative-Led Canada)?

Right there you see the moral bankruptcy many Muslims in the world suffer from nowadays.
-Go into a panic mode against Harper, but embrace Hamas.
-Throw a murderous fit when a cartoonist draws an unflattering picture of the Prophet Mohammed, but laugh at a cartoon depicting Jews as Nazi murderers.
-Demand economic sanctions against western countries, but hyperventilate when others demand one against a Muslim country.


You know what? I laid out the facts. Draw your own conclusions. I'm way too pissed to conclude this post with a worn-out cliché that's been repeated by almost every sane person who is monitoring current world events.

On a final note to my fellow Muslims:

You hit the nail on the head as usual. For those of you on the left who'll say I'm a racist, I'm a muslim myself so don't try to label me as anti-muslim or anything like that.

I hope more of you will speak out and I mean not just in blogs. Write letters to the editors. Organize demonstrations.

It's quit not Quite. And I think they have something to worry about considering Stockwell Day's well known anti-arab anti-muslim pro-Israel position.

So being pro-Israel makes you "anti-Arab" and "anti-Muslim"? I guess it's okay to have anti-Israel ministers at the cabinet table but not pro-Israel ones.

Thanks for the spellcheck Eugene.

Anti Muslim, Anti Arab? Care to elaborate?

And is being pro-Israel synonymous with being in favour of a police state?

Stockwell Day has been outspoken against the Palestinians and in favour of racial profiling. His position is more than just Pro Israel he is considered a great friend of Israel as I have blogged, which is why he did not get Foreign partisan.

Eugene - -it's *too* partisan.

What's wrong with being a 'great friend of Israel'? Is he advocating that Palestinians never achieve an independent, world recognised state?
Or is it just that he thinks that wanton murder-by-suicide bombings targeted at Israeli civilians are wrong?

What part of understanding Israel's position and supporting its obligation to defend its citizens is so wildly threatening to Palestinians or Canadian Muslims?
Unless you have quotes of Day saying that Palestine has no right to exist or Israel should target civilians, I think you're way off base.
Supporting Israel doesn't automatically mean that one doesn't support the Palestinians.

Hey Arabian Knight,

I love your post. Damn you are so cool. I wish that more muslims were like you. It's such a shame that there are so few of you out there, not only differing in opinion from the rest of the sheep, but having the courage to stand up and speak out. Can you tell me how you get along with other muslims? I can't see many of them being too tolerant of your views. Well anyway, I'm proud that your Canadian.

And I suppose that it does not matter that a group of Islamists have sworn to destroy our way of life and by any means whatsoever kill us.

I'm pretty sick of appologists for this jihad bullshit!

I am glad to read your posts. I sometime despair. The events in Denmark and Erope ae making me crazy. It is so much hypocrisy. I have to be tolerant of Islam, yet many Islamic countries openly persecute Christians. Tolerance is a two way thing

I've heard muslims saying that making cartoons about mohammed is the same thing as denying and making fun of the holocaust. Do muslims know how full of shit they are?

It is amazing this type of hypocrisy is not exposed in the main stream media. Unfortunately western leaders and the media are so busy being politically sensitive they've forgotten the larger ideals they represent.

The notion that anything in the US or Canada could approach the level of intolerance in the Mid-East is ridiculous. There is no equivalent to this kind of repressiveness here.

The mainstream media is more concerned about finding ridiculous ways to take down President Bush and Prime Minister Blair.
