In January the BBC outlined three issues (immigration is one issue!) that could cause Canadians to rethink their support for the progressive boy wonder.
But, here comes a fourth that has become fodder for the conservative opposition as Canadians vote later this year for a prime minister.
The scandal involves big money, bribery charges, the resignation of top aides and Libya.
Okay, okay, that is not a surprise, but what is a surprise is that CNN is reporting it and using the word “sharia.”
If Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, or Frank Gaffney uttered the following words, cries of “Islamophobia” would be screamed from the roof tops by the likes of Linda Sarsour!
Ben Wedeman, in a CNN storythis morning, reports of his interviews with two Canadian women who followed their men to Syria because of Islamic law.
Canadian women emerge from ISIS’s crumbling caliphate
The first woman quoted is Dura Ahmed, 28, originally from Toronto, Canada:
“Did you hear about the slaughter of Yezidis, of Yezidi women being enslaved?” I asked.
“When I came here, I heard. I haven’t seen one, but…” Her answer trailed off with a nervous laugh. “Well, having slaves is part of Sharia,” she finally ventured. “I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is. We must follow whoever is implementing the way, the law.”
The second woman is a 34-year-old from Alberta, Canada:
She, too, came to Syria at her husband’s bidding. “He’s like, ‘it’s obligatory for you to come here. You have no choice, and as your husband I’m telling you to come here.’And as a Muslim wife you have to obey, even though it was really hard for me to do it.” She takes a deep sigh. “I had to.”
Like Dura, she claims she knew nothing about ISIS or Syria before she made the journey here.
Not that it matters, but the woman from Alberta’s first husband (the one who insisted she come to Syria) was killed in the fighting and then she took another husband who also was killed in the fighting.
Read it all here. Will Canada be welcoming home its wayward women?
I shouldn’t get too excited that there could be a few truths sneaking into reports from the likes of CNN!
If you see more bits of news that might indicate a diversion from the Leftwing orthodoxy on Islam, immigration, etc. would you send a link my way? Let me know if you hear the word “sharia” on Fox News or any cable news network!
Yup, once again, it is the ‘community’ we must protect and shelter from backlash.
Three days ago Reutersreported the news of the arrests, here.
But, immediately the Christians who helped resettle the Muslims joined with a local Imam and others (and the media!) to be sure the public gets the message—this has nothing to do with Islam.
It is election year in Canada!
The stakes are high for Prime Minister Trudeau who made a big show of inviting tens of thousands of Syrians to Canada and chose a Somali manas his Immigration Minister.
Maybe they are protecting Trudeau as much as the Muslim ‘community.’
Below are a few snips from the CBC backlash story:
Community leaders work to head off anti-Muslim backlash as Kingston terror arrests wind up political debate
Community leaders are working to calm fears and find ways to prevent an anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant backlash in the wake of two arrests related to an alleged terrorist plot in Kingston, Ont. — yet the probe already has touched off a political debate over security screening for refugees.
Islamic community groups, mental health workers and police officers met earlier today to discuss their concerns about the broader community implications after the RCMP’s national security team charged one youth with two terrorism-related offences and arrested an adult male named Hussam Eddin Alzahabi in connection with an alleged plan to detonate explosives at an undisclosed location.
Alzahabi, who was released late today, is originally from Syria and came to Canada with his family in 2017 through a private refugee sponsorship program after living in Kuwait for 10 years. [prime example of refugee fraud because this guy was living in a safe country—ed] Bronek Korczynski, who led the family’s sponsorship through Our Lady of Lourdes church, said the community groups that met today will attempt to head off rumours and spread the message that the alleged offences have nothing to do with Islam.
Mohamed Bayoumi of the Islamic Society of Kingston told CBC there could be an anti-Muslim backlash in the community because of the arrests, and said the group must work to ensure that does not happen.
[….] Korczynski said he also fears the arrests and publicity surrounding the alleged terrorism case could spark unnecessary concerns about immigration.
“This certainly doesn’t suggest in any way, shape or form that Canadians shouldn’t remain open to support newcomers, whether they’re immigrants or refugees,” he said. The backlash fears come as the political debate over immigration heats up again. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who has accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of maintaining lax control over the border and immigration system, attempted to assign some blame for the developments to the Liberal government.
