Indonesian man jailed for Facebook post allegedly insulting Islam

Editor's Note: Alnoldy Bahari was sentenced to five years in jail and fined the equivalent of $7200 for a Facebook posting deemed offensive to Islam. While Canada is unlikely to subject anyone to such draconian measures any time soon, Motion M-103 and the reinstatement of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (which the current government is contemplating) are steps in that direction – away from freedom of speech. JAKARTA: An Indonesian was jailed for five years Monday for a Facebook post deemed offensive to Islam, his lawyer said, the latest conviction under the country’s controversial electronic information law. Alnoldy Bahari, 39, was found guilty of spreading hate speech for a pos

33,000 deadly attacks by Muslim terrorists since 9/11

Editor's Note: Is it numbers like that which cause the “Islamophobia” that the government of Canada condemns in Motion M-103? Instead of passing motions to “quell” hate and fear, the government might focus on its immigration policy. A US report just released by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security reveals that 73% of those convicted of international terrorism charges in US courts were foreign-born. US Attorney General Jeff Sessions says that the report reveals that “our immigration system has undermined our national security and public safety.” With a “open borders” policy that encourages “refugees” from the US to enter Canada illegally, surely the same can be said about Canada’s

Germany: Anti-Semitism chief tells Jews that their fears over the influx of Muslim migrants are legi

Editor's Note: Dr. Felix Klein, Germany’s first special envoy for Jewish life and combating anti-Semitism, said that German Jews have legitimate fears for their safety following the influx of one million mostly Muslim immigrants in 2015. Even Chancellor Angela Merkel has admitted that anti-Semitism is coming from refugees of people of Arab origin. Is it “Islamophobia” to be having this discussion? Maybe it’s a good thing for Dr. Klein and Chancellor Merkel that there is no Motion M-103 in Germany. Germany’s first special envoy for Jewish life and combating anti-Semitism, Dr. Felix Klein, has warned that Jews in Germany have legitimate fears for their safety due to “the influx of almost one m

Parliament Offers ‘Islamist’ Group Opportunity to Create Official ‘Islamophobia’ Definition

Editor's Note: What is the UK government thinking – or is this just more appeasement on its part? That fact that radical left-wing and known Islamist groups were invited to help draft a definition of “Islamophobia” certainly suggests appeasement. Why does the UK even need a “working definition” of Islamophobia ? Don’t Muslims already enjoy the same protection as all other UK citizens? And aren’t all citizens free to criticize any religion or ideology as they see fit? The fact that Prime Minister Teresa May has described “Islamophobia” as a form of “extremism” comparable to Islamist terrorism is ominous, especially when her government allows known Islamist hate preachers to enter the UK but b

Muslims Inadvertently Call for Ban on Islam

Editor's Note: Raymond Ibrahim describes the continuing efforts of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an intergovernmental organization comprising all Islamic countries and second in size only to the United Nations, to silence criticism of Islam in non-Islamic countries by promoting the criminalization of “defamation of religions,” by which of course they mean Islam. Other Islamic organizations, national and international, are actively pushing for the criminalization of “religious hate speech” and “Islamophobia” in Europe. Meanwhile, as Ibrahim points out, the Koran itself is so replete with hatred and contempt for Christianity that under the OIC’s definition of “defamation of re

Bissonnette pondered attacking Quebec City mall

Editor's Note: The narrative surrounding the Quebec City mosque attack of January, 2017, that left six people dead is that it was a random act of hatred against Muslims reflecting Canada’s problem with “Islamophobia.” Although the shootings were the action of one man, Alexandre Bissonette, whose motives were unknown, the Heritage Committee mandated by Motion M-103 to study systemic racism and Islamophobia recommended that January 29th, the day of the shooting, be designated a “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.” But at his trial in March, 2018, at which he pled guilty, Bissonnette insisted that he was not a terrorist or an Islamophobe, but that he was overcome by fear,

Is the United Kingdom an Islamist Colony?

Editor's Note: This Gatestone Institute article by Canadian security expert Tom Quiggin highlights how the concept of “Islamophobia” has deleterious real-life consequences. Pakistani Muslim rape gangs in British cities, most famously Rotherham, operated with near-total impunity because authorities did not want to appear racist or “Islamophobic.” Imams who preach hatred and jihadi violence, including Syed Muzaffar Shah Quadri who is banned from preaching in Pakistan, are allowed entry into Britain, while “right-wing” opponents of political Islam, including Canadian journalist Lauren Southern, are denied entry. Sadiq Khan, the Muslim Lord Mayor of London, chooses to fund 900 special hate crime

'Anti-Muslim rhetoric' in media spurred Alexandre Bissonnette to kill, Quebec mosque preside

Editor's Note: The assertion by Mohamed Yangui that it was “anti-Muslim rhetoric” by the media that drove Alexandre Bissonnette to kill six worshippers at a Quebec City mosque on January 29, 2017, is a fine example of the victimhood narrative often used by those promoting an Islamist agenda. Yangui was president of the mosque at the time of the shooting. Bissonnette had suicidal thoughts and was fixated on terrorist attacks around the world. He told police that Prime Minister Trudeau’s tweet that Canada would accept asylum seekers refused by the US sent him over the edge and that he went to the mosque and shot people there to save others from terrorist attacks. Yangui argues that the percep

Canada: Muslim MP defends her association with antisemitic, jihad-linked Palestine House

Editor's Note: In this follow-up to an article that we posted on April 17th, Christine Douglass-Williams describes MP Iqra Khalid’s attempts to distance herself from the virulently anti-Semitic Palestine House after having attended its “Land Day” event and hobnobbing with it leadership. Palestine House was defunded by the Conservative government of Stephen Harper for “its pattern of extremism.” But it seems that for MP Khalid, embracing diversity overrides shunning extremism: “Like any MP, I engage with a diverse array of individuals, stakeholders and groups in my community-many of them I don’t agree with.” Unfortunately, there seems to be all too much agreement between Khalid and people wit

Does the Toronto Police Service Support Domestic Abuse? Their Chaplain Does

Editor's Note: Tom Quiggin discusses the appalling, male supremacist attitude of Toronto Police Services chaplain Musleh Khan. The appointment of Khan is all the more disappointing given that police forces during the last several decades have made great strides in recognizing domestic violence as a serious criminal matter. The appointment of Khan raises the question of whether the judgement of the Toronto Chief of Police, the Toronto Police Services Board, and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police is clouded by political correctness and fear of being labelled “Islamophobic.” Why do the Toronto Police Service have a chaplain who has a moral compass that does not align with the Constitu

Canada: On Trudeau’s behalf, Muslim MP Iqra Khalid honours anti-Israel activists

Editor's Note: Christine Douglass-Williams describes the unsavoury Muslim Brotherhood-linked connections of Liberal MP Iqra Khalid, who introduced the controversial Motion M-103. Indeed, Khalid’s apparent ties to extremist elements raise questions – if there were still any doubt – about whether the real purpose of Motion M-103 is to silence criticism of Islam. “‘Land Day’ symbolizes the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) determination to “‘liberate’ ‘Palestine’ by wiping Israel off the map.” "On April 14, 2018, the Palestine House held its annual commemoration of the “Land Day”…..The keynote speaker at the event was Palestinian Archbishop Atallah Hanna who is known of his support of Syria’s Assad

The Ottawa Police and Islamic Outreach

Editor's Note: Tom Quiggin raises questions about the competence and possible politicization of the Ottawa Police, given its apparently warm relations with known Muslim Brotherhood front groups, most notably the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), formerly CAIR-CAN, whose parent organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been identified as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism funding case in the USA. The incurious attitude of the Ottawa Police about the background of its Muslim partners in outreach may hinder their investigations into gang violence and Islamic extremism, between which there appears to be some crossover. The photo of A

The Quiggin Reports – Podcasts on Free Speech

Editor's Note: In this series of podcasts, Tom Quiggin discusses the collusion of Islamists with Leftists to silence free speech under the pretext of stopping hate speech, the failure of political leaders, intelligence and law enforcement to respond effectively to the threat of radical Islam, the use of the term “Islamophobia” to silence anyone who expresses concerns about the Islamization of society, the history and evolution of the Muslim Brotherhood, and more. A summary of the major focus of each podcast is provided. Podcast #5: The Misogyny of the Islamists and the Silence of the Feminists Both the literature of Islamist groups and statements made by their senior leadership are clear abo

VIDEO: UK Police refuse to investigate death threats to Islam critic because they claim she is “inci

Editor's Note: As Robert Spencer reports, in Britain the police are already enforcing sharia law when it comes to criticizing Islam. Police in Manchester are refusing to investigate death threats against an Islam critic because the critic is accused of “inciting racial hatred.” Is that where Motion M-103 will bring us? Yet more disquieting evidence that the first priority of police in Britain is now enforcing Sharia blasphemy laws. Jonaya Fenessa English explains in this video that she never speaks about Muslims, only about Islam, and never calls for violence. But that is not enough: that is also true of Pamela Geller and me, and we were banned from Britain. Any criticism of Islam, no matt

Sweden's War on Free Speech

Editor's Note: Like Britain, Sweden is more concerned with protecting Islam than protecting its citizens. The mainstream media reports a significant rise in prosecution for “hate speech” as an organization formed by a former police investigator ferrets out thought crimes (politically incorrect opinions) that people post online. While brutal real crimes go unpunished – and are sometimes not even investigated for alleged lack of resources – pensioners with suspect opinions are subjected to the full force of the law. The proponents of Motion M-103 – condemning “Islamophobia” would no doubt be delighted to duplicate this situation in Canada. Apparently, turning in fellow Swedes to the authoriti

Do you utter “hate speech”?

Editor's Note: “Jacob” explains the difference between “hate speech” and incitement to violence, human trafficking and similarly illegal activities, which, at least based on his testimony at House and Senate hearings, Mark Zuckerberg seems not to understand. Is it really his duty to crate “safe spaces” in cyberspace? The success of the indoctrination of the young is revealed in the statistic that 40% of Americans under 35 think that anything that could hurt another person’s feelings should be censored and punishable. If you do [utter hate speech], you’ll probably be like Mark Zuckerberg, who couldn’t quite define what it is, but stands by the principle that he hates “hate speech” nonetheless

LISTEN: Why I was interviewed by Britain’s counter-terrorism police

Editor's Note: Christian Finch, interviewed by Britain’s counter-terrorism police for criticizing Islam and Teresa May, describes how his country is descending into totalitarianism. The first step is to strangle free speech. Broad definitions of “hate speech” and measures to fight “Islamophobia” are leading us in the same direction in this country. Motion M-103 is a stealth attack on free speech and the right to criticize Islam. My name is Christian Finch. In August 2017, I was interviewed by the UK counter terrorism police, which I recorded and posted on SoundCloud. You may be asking yourself what kind of dangerous incitement to violence it could have been to warrant the attention of the UK

Antifa And The SPLC Successfully Shut Down Four Anti-Islam Conferences

Editor's Note: Jim Simpson reports on the shutdown of four conferences of conservative Christian groups in Wisconsin and Minnesota through the brownshirt tactics of Antifa with information obtained from its allies at the Southern Poverty Law Center. The conferences’ focus was on how leftists supported by George Soros are intimidating Americans into silence by labelling anyone who exposes them as “racists,” “Islamophobes,” and “white supremacists.” It is becoming increasing uncertain for any organization not deemed progressive enough to organize a meeting, because organizers never know whether their event will be cancelled at the last minute because their venue has succumbed to intimidation.

Keynote speaker at Muslim Family Conference in Niagara disinvited amidst controversy

The keynote speaker for the Niagara Muslim Family Conference, scheduled for April 14, was to be Omar AbdulKafi, an Egyptian theologian based in Dubai. But, as the American Center for Democracy and Christine Douglass-Williams noted, the imam has made some rabidly anti-Semitic pronouncements, about which B’Nai Brith raised concerns. AbdulKafi was subsequently disinvited from the conference. However, questions about his even being invited to speak at a Muslim conference in Canada remain. In the letter below, addressed to all Members of Parliament, C3RF founding member Madeline Weld suggests that the government of Canada should pay more attention to the issue of radical Islam in Canada than try

Google is silencing criticism of radical Islam

Tom Quiggin, a court-certified intelligence officer, with over 30 years of experience in counter-terrorism, has been kicked off of Google and YouTube before his new podcast even hit the air. The Quiggin Report was meant to tackle important issues related to civil liberties in Canada, such as Freedom of Speech and censorship. However, this was deemed too dangerous for people to hear by the observers at YouTube and Google, as they decided to block Tom Quiggin from using all google services. This brings up a troubling new chapter in the war against free speech. We have known for a long time that the Trudeau government is in bed with the Islamists, but now the giant tech companies have decided t
