Christine Douglass-Williams fired from Canadian Race Relations Foundation for writing for JihadWatch

[Note from Robert Spencer: It is unconscionable that Christine Douglass-Williams has been dismissed from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation for calling attention to the reality of jihad terror. Whether the Canadian government likes it or not, and however it stigmatizes and attempts to marginalize honest discussion of these issues, jihad terror is a grim reality and they will not be able to avoid it or den it forever. Canada, by dismissing Ms. Douglass-Williams for writing for Jihad Watch, is buying into the notion that it is offensive and wrong to track, publicize, and oppose jihad terror and Sharia supremacist activity. Once we are all silenced, the jihad will be able to advance unopposed and unimpeded. Apparently that is what Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Joly want.]

I have been terminated from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, four months after a threatening letter by Heritage Minister Melanie Joly about my writings on Islam at Jihad Watch. Joly made good on her threats. The Privy Council has terminated my appointment, despite my years of dedicated commitment to the Foundation, on which I also served as Chair of the Investment Committee, and as a member of the Human Resource and Executive Committees. Why? Because I dared to criticize political Islam on Jihad Watch, and because of My Personal Warning to Icelanders, in which I warned about the deceptive works of Muslim Brotherhood operatives in their infiltration of the West. Their tactics are well documented. I personally make a distinction between those who choose to practice Islam in peace and harmony with others, and those with an agenda to subvert democratic constitutions, demand special privileges over other creeds, and attack innocent people as a supremacist entitlement. It is odd to be removed from a race relations foundation for my private work in criticizing Islam, which is not a race. This is the message I received from the Liberal government:

“Dear Ms. Douglass-Williams, Please find attached an Order in Council terminating your appointment as a director of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, effective December 19, 2017. The Order in Council will be posted on the Privy Council Office website in the next several days. Sincerely, Janine Sherman Deputy Secretary to the Cabinet / Sous-secrétaire du Cabinet Senior Personnel and Public Service Renewal / Personnel supérieur et renouvellement de la fonction publique Privy Council Office / Bureau du Conseil privé Government of Canada / Gouvernement du Canada”

Despite the many letters that were sent to the Heritage Department on my behalf and a petition attesting to my deep regard for human rights, the Liberal government decided that my criticism of human rights abuses committed in the name of Islam was “racist.” A logical article was written in a Canadian National newspaper about the attack against me by John Robson, entitled: “If you want to accuse someone of prejudice, use the right word,” in which he writes:

Consider Monday’s National Post story that, “A board member with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, an arm’s-length federal government agency with a mandate to combat racial discrimination, is in jeopardy of losing her post over her writings on the controversial website Jihad Watch.” And her situation is far from unique. To raise questions about militant Islam, or the extent to which fundamentalism is inherent in Muslim scriptures and doctrines, is to invite accusations of racism.

And that I have done! I have raised the ire of the “anti-Islamophobia department,” once known as Canada’s Heritage Department for all Canadians. I have given countless hours — many pro bono — at the CRRF and I have shared great times with fellow board members (and some of the staff), as we strove toward doing work to unite humanity. In fact, it was I that came up with the term “Our Canada” to reflect the National Anthem “Oh Canada,” as a means to remind everyone equally that Canada belongs to no one group of specially privileged folk. Yet my work against supremacism did not start with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, although I was most happy serving in that role, and it certainly will not end there. I will continue to stand against all practices that violate the dignity of human life and human rights, and against supremacism of all kinds, the worst of which is Islamic supremacism today. Proponents of no other religion at this time have proliferated so forcefully into foreign countries, demanding special privileges, or have pursued calculated and organized efforts to shut down free speech and silence dissenting views about its religiously sanctioned abuses. Indeed, there are those Muslims who seek modernization and warn about Islamic supremacists, and they pay a heavy price. Muslims have murdered at least 12 million fellow Muslims since 1948 for being of the “wrong” sect and/or “not being Muslim enough.” I fight against anti-Muslim bigotry as I do against all bigotry, but this was not enough to keep me serving with the Foundation. This assault upon my human rights and rights as a Canadian citizen by the current government because I write and warn about the worst kind of Muslims and promote equality for all is scary, as it represents an indictment against anyone who criticizes Islam, and is another victory for Islamic supremacists as they further their efforts to subvert our prized democracy. Influential to Canada being lead down this path of shariah intrusion is CAIR-CAN, renamed the National Council of Canadian Muslims. This group is an offshoot of CAIR, designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates, and an unindicted co-conspirator in America’s largest terrorism funding trial The Holy Land Foundation trial. CAIR-CAN/NCCM has foisted upon Canada its “Islamophobia” agenda, which is heavily pushed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in order to shut down any criticism of Islam. CAIR-CAN/NCCM has been involved in: the establishment of “anti-Islamophobia” Charters in six major cities, an “Islamophobia” snitch line, and now Canadian leaders are further undermining Canada’s rights and freedoms with Islamophobia Motion M-103, which passed in parliament last year. Canada’s anti-Islamophobia Motion is described in detail here, along with the questionable players in Canada who are behind it who are openly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. In a statement, CAIR-CAN/NCCM spokesperson Amira Elghawaby said this about me:

“For a federal appointee to be writing for hateful websites, denying the existence of Islamophobia and calling for the violation of fundamental rights and freedoms of a minority community is contrary to everything the Canada Race Relations Foundation stands for and to the values enshrined in the charter.”

Now that the government has listened to the advice of Elhawaby et al, it remains to be seen just how far Canada intends to continue bending backwards for Islamic supremacists, or to sink in subjugation to them. The Trudeau government has so far removed the condemning of “Barbaric Cultural Practices” (such as honor violence and FGM) from the Citizenship Test; and recently ‘passed a bill to also remove mention of “barbaric cultural practices” from a Conservative-era law that outlawed forced marriage. Justin Trudeau also plans on giving returning Islamic State jihadis – whom he prefers to call “traumatized foreign terrorist travelers” — reintegration support, a silly venture that has been proven futile. Trudeau was badly humiliated by the opposition in Parliament for putting Canadians at risk. Trudeau also infamously paid out 10.5 million dollars to Omar Khadr and apologized for his rough treatment at Guantanamo, despite him murdering a young medic and blinding another soldier. I am investigating some avenues concerning this ruthless and agenda-driven decision to dismiss me from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation.
