Here yet again, as the Muslim Brotherhood unmasks itself daily in Egypt, we see Muslim Brotherhood groups in the West intimidate and harass in order to impose the Shariah on free societies. Free speech jihad.
I am scheduled to speak in Toronto on Sept. 17, along with my colleague Robert Spencer. You may recall that back in April, I was scheduled to speak at the Toronto Chabad synagogue when the synagogue’s rabbi was strongarmed by Shariah-compliant police to cancel my event. The event was moved, and I spoke to a standing-room-only crowds (hundreds were turned away). And the police officer and police chief who tried to shut down the event are currently under investigation for abusing their powers in pressuring the rabbi to cancel my talk.
Fast forward. Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in Canada, upon hearing that Spencer and I would be speaking next month, went into full Brotherhood mode, threatening, intimidating and spreading lies and libel to scare good folks into canceling this much-needed event. The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), formerly known as CAIR-Canada, sent a letter to the venue where the JDL is hosting the event. It retailed the usual charges: the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) had designated our group a hate group, the British government banned us, and so on.
That shows how the left and Islamic supremacists build on their victories to get more victories. What did the SPLC and ADL denounce us for? For going against their leftist appeasement of the jihad. Why did the British government ban us? Because they were afraid that Muslims would riot if they let in people who said that Islam is not a religion of peace – and because a far-left British counterpart of the SPLC, a hate-filled and libelous group with the ironic name of Hope Not Hate, repeated the same lies about us that the left repeats in the U.S.: that we called all Muslims “savages,” which we never did, and all the rest.
The Muslim Brotherhood thugs are on a jihad against the truth. Truth begets hate – the NCCM and CAIR define that Latin axiom. They go after everyone who does not make a de facto submission to the blasphemy laws under the Shariah. Their agenda is the same as that of the genocidal Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. In fact, the brother of a former CAIR leader in Florida, the prominent “moderate” Muslim Ahmed Bedier, was killed fighting alongside the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in Thursday.
This is war. And they are winning. No one is safe unless we fight back. Muslim Brotherhood CAIR attempts to takes down anyone who resists.
The Jewish Defense League, the group that invited us, responded to the NCCM with a letter. It said that the information contained in the NCCM letter was “factually incorrect” and its allegations “unfounded.” It pointed out that two plainclothes police officers had attended my earlier talk in Toronto, ready to catch me uttering “hate speech,” and found none. In both this letter and in a follow-up letter, the event organizers from JDL-Canada offered to meet with NCCM representatives and engage in a civil discussion of their concerns.
To that, NCCM Executive Director Ihsan Gardee responded curtly, “Thank you for your email and letter. We are not in a position to discuss this matter with you.” They refuse to discuss the issues. They just want the JDL and the hotel to submit, to bend to their will and cancel the event.
What Islamic supremacist groups like the NCCM want to do is make it illegal, or at least socially unacceptable, to criticize Islam and jihad. The end result of that will be that the jihad against the West will advance unchallenged. That’s just what we saw happen in Fort Hood, when none of Maj. Nidal Hasan’s coworkers dared report him for his jihad sentiments; they knew they’d be charged with “Islamophobia” and probably drummed out of the military. That’s the endgame. That’s the kind of thing the NCCM wants to see.
