Killer’s confession reveals Quebec mosque shooting was NOT terror or Islamophobia

Editor's Note: Alexandre Bissonnette, who killed six men and injured six others in a Quebec City mosque in January, 2017, pled guilty on all counts on March 28. In a letter read in court, he says he was “ashamed” of his “insane act,” that he was “neither a terrorist nor an Islamophobe,” but had been “having suicidal thoughts and ideas and an obsession with death for a long time” before the shooting. He asked for forgiveness, and expressed the hope that in pleading guilty he could do a bit of good. Bissonnette is a very thin reed on which to hang the claim of Motion M-103 that there is a need for government action to quell Islamophobia in Canada. This human tragedy must not be hijacked for po

Australia’s first Muslim female MP Anne Aly skillfully plays the racism and victimhood cards

Editor's Note: Australia’s first Muslim female MP, Anne Aly, plays the racism and victimhood card and says it is “Islamophobic” and “racist” to refer to Islamic history and religious texts that sanction violence, writes Christine Douglass-Williams. Australians shouldn’t be surprised if Aly introduces a Down Under version of Motion M-103. Last year she said that “race discrimination laws should be expanded to cover insults based on religion as well.” "The first Muslim woman elected to Australia’s federal parliament has spoken of how racism and domestic violence has shaped her career. Egypt-born Anne Aly has released an autobiography “Finding My Place,” which details religious bigotry she suff

UK: Islamization Full Speed Ahead

Editor's Note: Judith Bergman writes how Islamization is proceeding full speed ahead in Britain, with police learning about “Islamophobia” from Islamist groups. Is that where Motion M-103 and the report it engendered, which calls for a national day of action against Islamophobia, are leading us? This is how Islamization occurs and is made permanent: Other schools will think carefully of the risks before they even attempt to "limit the Islamization process". It is virtually impossible for "Islamophobia" to be "underreported" in London. The UK is nothing, if not clinically obsessed with "Islamophobia". In 2016, London mayor Sadiq Khan's Office for Policing and Crime announced it was spending

Sweden: Muslim migrants sexually harass students as young as 6, principal forbids teachers to tell t

Editor's Note: A school principal in Malmo, Sweden, ordered employees at her school not to speak to journalists about the sexual harassment and abuse perpetrated by Muslim students. Under pressure, she later backed down. But wouldn’t government action on “Islamophobia,” as proposed by Motion M-103, promote exactly that sort of muzzling of free speech. Maria Berben Lidén initially defended her gag order, but then backed down when told that it was illegal. But it is clear why she imposed it in the first place. She knows who Sweden’s new masters are, and she knows they don’t take kindly to criticism. She was following the example of innumerable British officials, who remained silent and did no

100 French Intellectuals Denounce Islamist Separatism

Editor's Note: Leslie Shaw reports that 100 French intellectuals of diverse political views denounced Islamist totalitarianism in the newspaper Le Figaro on March 19, 2018. Are they Islamophobic? Would Canadian intellectuals be able to do such a thing were their government to implement a whole-of-government approach to countering “Islamophobia” as mandated by Motion M-103? Supporters of French President Macron celebrate his victory A group of 100 diverse French intellectuals denounced Islamist totalitarianism in the newspaper Le Figaro on March 19, 2018. The following is a translation of their statement made by Clarion contributor Leslie Shaw: We are citizens of differing and often diametric

The Criminalization of Dissent in Canada - Attacks on Free Speech

Editor's Note: Tom Quiggin describes how charges of “hate crime” are used to silence critics of Islam in Ontario, while true hate speech coming from mosques is ignored. Imagine what a law against “Islamophobia” arising from Motion M-103 would do to free speech. Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi pictured with alleged Hezbollah Mullah Ali Sbeiti. The use of criminal laws to silence dissent is increasing in Canada. This is especially true if you criticize the Government of Ontario. This “democratic” government will use the force of criminal law to silence any policy questions. Two recent cases highlight the problem. They stand in sharp contrast to where multiple other charges should

UK: Huge Rise in Knifepoint Rapes, Fatal Stabbings While Police Focus on ‘Hate Crime’

Editor's Note: Virginia Hale writes that while violent crime is rising rapidly in the UK, vast amounts of money are being spent to get people to report “hate crimes.” Presumably we can expect to see a similar waste of money in Canada when the recommendations of the Heritage Committee’s report for Motion M-103 are implemented. Crime figures released this week revealed that fatal stabbings in England and Wales are at the highest level since 2010-2011, while rapes at knifepoint rose by 23 per cent in the past year. Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) recorded 413 rapes involving a knife in the year to March, up from 334 the previous year, while in 2010-2011 the number stood at 2

PETITION: Say “NO” to a Day of Action on Islamophobia in Canada

The Heritage Committee has come out with its report on Motion M-103. Its recommendations have been formulated on the basis of cherry-picked witness testimony that ignored expert advice to shun the use of the term "Islamophobia". Rather than this, the Committee called for the creation of a "National Day of Remembrance and Action Against Islamophobia" that stands to memorialize the false M-103 narrative that accuses Canadians of hatred and bigotry. C3RF Co-Chair, Major (Ret'd) Russ Cooper has had enough. He has commissioned a petition that calls for Canadians to register their displeasure with the nonsense that is "Islamophobia". You may view the petition,in English and French, here: https

Was Quebec mosque attack a random act of ‘Islamophobia?’ - QUIGGIN: The Quebec mosque story has many

Editor's Note: The National Council of Canadian Muslims asked the government of Canada to declare January 29 as a Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia. The NCCM claims that the only reason for the shootings in a Quebec City mosque on that day in 2017 was because the victims were Muslim. However, as Tom Quiggin writes, the real reasons are far more complex. He places the deadly January 2017 attack in the context of that mosque's Muslim Brotherhood connections and other incidents in which it was targeted. Which makes commemorating the attack as a random incident of Islamophobia on a designated day every year highly questionable. Police survey the scene of a shooting at a Quebec City m

Barbara Kay: Getting to the heart of what M-103 was always all about

Editor's Note: In this article, Barbara Kay examines the genesis of Motion M-103 and explores the fact that the statistics of the Report it mandated the Heritage Committee to produce do not bear out the existence of a pervasive climate of hate and fear, as alleged by the Motion. So why does the Heritage Comittee's Report have a recommendation (Recommendation 30) for a National Day of Action Against Islamophobia? Kay thinks it is to make any criticism of the Islamic faith, however fair-minded, legally fraught. I suggest Christians have a more evidence-based right than Muslims to feel they are victims of systemic institutional bias in Canada Liberal MP Iqra Khalid makes an announcement about M

In case you missed it, Parliament issued its M-103 Islamophobia report

Editor's Note: This article by Thomas Woodley from the appropriately named website “Rabble” perpetuates the Muslim victimhood narrative in describing the low-key response to the Heritage Committee’s report for Motion M-103. Contrary to what one might gather from his article, Muslims are not the primary targets of hate crimes in Canada nor are the numbers high, the Conservative counter-motion to M-103 was not divisive but rather more inclusive than Motion M-103, and the fact that “Islamophobia” is poorly defined is indeed a major problem (as evidenced by the Toronto District School Board briefly adopting a definition of Islamophobia that included “dislike” of “Islamic politics or culture”– be

An Analysis of the Heritage Committee’s Report on Motion M-103

Editor's Note: Major (ret’d) Russ Cooper has analyzed the Heritage Committee’s report, released in February, on “Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination, Including Islamophobia,” and is not impressed. He examines the shaky premises and faulty assumptions on which Motion M-103 is based – including whether there even is a “rising climate of hate and fear” that the government needs to “quell” – and, not surprisingly, finds that they have resulted in many questionable recommendations. You’ll find his analysis under our Heritage Committee heading, and you can read his Executive Summary here. Executive Summary ​ Motion M-103 evolved from e-petition 411, a House of Commons petition that basica

The Fight of Our Lives

Have you noticed? We now live in a society where our education system favours Neo-Marxist ideals over those of the Enlightenment, our politicians consort with Islamic radicals instead of reformers, and our media favours ideology over truth. Our schools have stopped teaching how to think and instead are teaching our kids what to think. We may not have realized it yet, but we are already in the fight of our lives! Freedom, democracy and Western civilization itself are at stake. In her fourth documentary film, award-winning director/producer, Gloria Greenfield, addresses these issues calmly and bravely. She interviews a series of experts, including Melanie Phillips, Alan Dershowitz, Raheel
