CIJ News: Canada’s top Imam says jihad will continue until the Day of Judgment

Editor's Note: The term Islamophobia as used in motion M-103 is tailor-made to silence any criticism of Islam. Even criticism of truly inflammatory speech – such as that of the imams mentioned in the article below – would be out of bounds. The content of this article reinforces the importance of the general principle of freedom to criticize any religion (including Islamic Sharia law and its promotion) without fear of censure or legal consequences. 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 “

National Post - Barbara Kay: How academics portray Islam as a’ victim’ of oppression — even as they

April 21 marks the opening, at the Berkeley campus of the University of California, of the sixth annual academic conference on Islamophobia. If past conclaves are a guide, the conference will be marked by a morass of impenetrable academic jargon and an unremitting flow of anti-Western rhetoric. Here, if one cares to observe, one may see the academic pistons of the blasphemy-law promotional industry pumping vigorously away at its task, to ensure that expression of hostility to the religion of Islam achieves cultural parity on campuses as a shaming thought crime, morally equivalent to expressed hostility to women, blacks, gays and aboriginals. What ends in law often begins in academia. And the

The Similarities between “Islamophobia” and “Battered Women’s Syndrome” – and our “Islamophobia? GET

What do “Islamophobia” and “Battered Women’s Syndrome” have in common? One could be forgiven for thinking, “Not much.” After all, “Islamophobia,” as defined by the most prodigious user of the term – the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) – defines it as “an excessive fear against Islam and anything associable with Islam.” Battered Women’s syndrome (BWS), on the other hand, is defined as a “fearfulness and a feeling of helplessness, seen in some women who are physically, verbally, or emotionally abused over an extended period by a husband or partner.” It would seem that one deals with an unfounded fear of the ideology of Islam and anything associable with its related doctrines while th
