You have probably heard about the case of one of Toronto’s public schools, the Valley Park Middle School, where with the consent of the Toronto District School Board, the cafeteria was being turned on Fridays into a mosque, with many kids praying and exposed to sermons by unknown imams. The always creative Mark Steyn called the establishment “mosqueteria”.
When a few days ago John Oakely from the Toronto AM 640 radio station invited Barbara Hall, the chief of the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC), to his show, one could have expected that she would attack that blatant violation of the separation of religion and state. She appeared together with the prominent Muslim activist Raheel Raza from the Canadian Muslim Congress.
Here is the complete recording of that segment:
If you had the patience to sit through the whole interview, you already know that Hall didn’t say much. With her emotionless talk, resembling the voice of the android Data from Star Trek The Next Generation, she kept rambling about reasonable accommodation, emphasizing that she didn’t know much about the case.
On the other hand, Raheel Raza kept attacking the situation with facts and questions, to which Barbara had no answer. That continued until Raza was cut off. After that the interview turned into Oakely’s communicating with the dead.
The whole case was so ironic – the OHRC chief, who is supposed to protect the rights of all Canadians, didn’t find even a word of condemnation to say about the mosqueteria, while the Muslim Raza pointed out all the dangers and violations caused by that project.
Hall’s behaviour in this case is not something accidental – it’s a part of a pattern. Think about it – if she didn’t have enough information about the case or didn’t want to get involved through a public statement, she could’ve excused herself when Oakely invited her for an interview. Instead, she chose to appear,
sounding to most listeners like an incompetent fool.
But those listeners don’t matter to her, the most important was the impression she created on her Muslim listeners. Through her rambling she clearly communicated that she has no intention of interfering with the mosqueteria, thus giving it the license to operate undisturbed.
This is not new – Hall has always supported the Muslim bullies.
When a few years ago a bunch of unsavoury Muslim organizations and characters attacked Maclean’s magazine for publishing articles about Islam, which they considered “Islamophobic”, she firmly stood behind them.
Although she had enough sense to figure out the lack of legal ground to go against the magazine and Mark Steyn – there was nothing discriminatory in those articles – nevertheless, after dropping the case, she found it necessary to issue a statement against them.
OHRC has often been called a “kangaroo court”, but that statement affirmed their status of a kangaroo court. What real court would do something like that? Can you imagine a real judge, who dismisses the case for the lack of legal grounds, issuing a condemnation for a person who has neither been tried, nor convicted?
That statement of OHRC says in part the following:
Nevertheless, the Commission has a broader mandate to promote and advance respect for human rights in Ontario, forward the dignity and worth of every Ontarian and take steps to alleviate tension and conflict in the community, including by speaking out on events that are inconsistent with the spirit of the Code.
While freedom of expression must be recognized as a cornerstone of a functioning democracy, the Commission has serious concerns about the content of a number of articles concerning Muslims that have been published by Maclean’s magazine and other media outlets. This type of media coverage has been identified as contributing to Islamophobia and promoting societal intolerance towards Muslim, Arab and South Asian Canadians. The Commission recognizes and understands the serious harm that such writings cause, both to the targeted communities and society as a whole. And, while we all recognize and promote the inherent value of freedom of expression, it should also be possible to challenge any institution that contributes to the dissemination of destructive, xenophobic opinions.
The Commission is concerned that since the September 2001 attacks, Islamophobic attitudes are becoming more prevalent in society and Muslims are increasingly the target of intolerance, including an unwillingness to consider accommodating some of their religious beliefs and practices.
Unfortunately, the Maclean’s article, and others like it, are examples of this. By portraying Muslims as all sharing the same negative characteristics, including being a threat to ‘the West’, this explicit expression of Islamophobia further perpetuates and promotes prejudice towards Muslims and others. An extreme illustration of this is a “blog” discussion concerning the article that was brought to the attention of the Commission which, among many things, called for the mass killing, deportation or conversion of Muslim Canadians.
So Barbara Hall states her intention to go aggressively after bloggers, who criticize Islam.
Her new Muslim friends appreciated her desire to be over the “Islamophobes” like a pitbull on a poodle. The Iranian-backed shia organization CASMO awarded her a shiny clock, the same way Brezhnev used to give shiny medals to the useful idiots from the West, who supported the communist cause.
The small detail she failed to notice, was that CASMO was an anti-Semitic organization. During the Muslim riots, lovingly referred to by the lefties as “Arab Spring”, they thought that the best person to explain the events on their site was David Duke. They placed a video, in which the notorious Grand Dragon of KKK and a world-famous anti-Semite explained in detail how the events would deliver a death blow on Zionism.
But hey, what are friends for? They can’t be turned off by a little KKK video.
It’s great that Barbara Hall is fighting “Islamophobia”, but maybe there are some problems within the Muslim community, which her commission may need to address.
There is a prominent Muslim writer in Toronto, who writes for TheMuslim.ca, a respected Islamic online publication. His name is Jawed Anwar (h/t BCF) and at one time he even occupied a high administrative position in the very same school, where the mosqueteria is located.
In the most recent issue of the magazine, he published an article covering an Islamic conference in Toronto: Journey of Faith Conference: Zakir Naik to Bilal
Here is what he had to say about the presentation of one of the most radical imams, who attended:
“Here Mr. Bilal Philips is suggesting a law for the future Islamic governments who will decide to implement Islamic law in their countries. Although, there is no clear-cut verse in Qur’an that categorically suggests killing of homosexuals, sayings of Prophet Muhammad suggests three types of sentences, and among that one is death. Bilal Philips is suggesting, based on his opinion on the Qur’anic/Prophetic principles of society. He is not advising the Islamic judiciary to kill any gay person they found, but what he is “suggesting” is judicial punishment of death sentence for
those who confess or are seen “performing homosexual acts” by “four reliable witnesses without any doubt.”
The essence of Islamic laws is to protect the life of human beings. And it happens that sometimes killing of a person can save thousands and sometimes millions of lives. The Islamic judiciary can punish a person with death sentence to save others’ lives.
In other words, Bilal Philips is saying that an Islamic society will not tolerate homo-sexual acts in public (where minimum four witnesses see the sexual performance) to save future generations. That means from Bilal Philips’s viewpoint (as it was quoted in Toronto Star): 1. There is no danger of life of any homosexual from public in anywhere of the world 2. There is no danger of life of any homosexual by the judiciary of those
Muslim States not governed by Islamic law. 3. In future, when Islamic laws will be implemented in any country, all those homosexuals who will perform homosexual acts in private will be saved. 4. Only those homosexuals living in Islamic law-governing society will be punished who will perform homosexual act in public (four witnesses required for proof).
In conclusion, Bilal Philips’s viewpoint is not endangering any homosexual life in near future. However, the promoters and propagators of gay culture and gay agenda are endangering the life of whole human race, particularly white species (due to large acceptance of gay lifestyle in whites).
So, Barbara, how many violations of the Human Rights Code do you see here? He is openly advocating killing of gays. He thinks that they endanger the life of the human race. He even makes a racist statement against whites in the end. Oh, wait, the last one is not a transgression – your commission hates whites as well.
In case you think that the article was an accidental slip of the pen, here is another one titled “Don Valley West: Liberal Hypocrites Lost the Grip” , published in May of this year, in which he complained about the gay politicians. I wrote earlier about it:
When Kathleen Wynne became the member of the Ontario Provincial Parliament and education minister by defeating John Tory who was the advocate of public funding of religious schools, she tried her best to change the current character of public school on the path of perversion. She
prepared a new curriculum for health and physical education, before leaving the ministry to join Ministry of Transport. The new curriculum proposed sex education from grade three, and homosexuality and trans-sexuality (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, intersex, queer) was to be a part of curriculum. Young kids would be taught that you could have two moms and two dads and all kinds of possible sexual perversion and relationship and there is nothing wrong in it; it is normal. Moreover, parents have no right to oppose it… A majority of Muslims are living in poverty and having several children; they can’t pay enormous fees for private Islamic schools. Practically, they are forced to send their children to public schools in all conditions. If they speak against Ms. Wynne’s proposed curriculum, they will be accused of violating “human rights” and “social justice.” This is the repressive and authoritarian tendency of Liberal extremists and perverts.
You can see that the educator Jawed throws out of the window the whole progressive educational agenda that Comrade McGuinty so diligently tried to impose on our schools. Further in the article, he even boasts how the Muslims in Toronto contributed to the defeat of two gay politicians – Smitherman and Oliphant.
Here is even a more serious case – a certain Sumayya Kassamali, who is a PhD student in Anthropology at Columbia University in New York, with interests in religion, ritual, imagination and insurgency, with a focus on Islam and the Middle East – published an article in the leftist Canadian magazine Briarpatch. It’s titled In defence of a Muslim takeover Or, why we should welcome the extinction of the West.
It delivers exactly what it promises in the title. That weird woman outlines a strategy to destroy Canada and turn it into a wasteland dominated by sharia
The funny thing is that the idiots from Canadian Heritage gave a $10,000 grant to that horrible magazine. I wonder if Sir Winston Churchill would have given such a grant to an English magazine calling for a Hitler takeover?
Is this considered normal by the standards of the OHRC?
I have never seen any reaction to those attempts to destroy the basic values of our society.
Instead, Barbara Hall chooses to ignore the problem of a public school turned into a madrash, which imposes the barbaric Wahabi form of Islam, with the humiliating gender segregation, which has no place in a tax-payer funded school. Wouldn’t fighting that dangerous trend help “forward the dignity and worth of every Ontarian”, which is supposedly the goal of the OHRC?
Raheel Raza clearly stated that danger in the interview, but our mosque supporter chose to ignore her.
George Smitherman is a close pal of our OHRC commissar. He worked at her mayoral campaign. During his campaign last year, she was proud to say that she was like a grandmother to his adopted baby.
On the other hand, the people in Ontario, who are pushing the Muslim agenda, don’t have even the slightest desire to advance the gay rights. People like Jawed Anwar are more vocal and influential in the community than Tarek Fatah and Raheel Raza, who are resented and receive death threats.
Yet, Barbara Hall supports those who clearly want to destroy not only the gay rights, but also the whole Canadian civilization. So far, not a single Muslim
extremist has been charged by the human rights commission.
If things advance with the same speed, we will see in a few short years an increase of the extremist influence over the Muslim population in Toronto.
In four years, Georgie Boy and his “husband” wouldn’t be thinking about another run for mayor – they’ll be lucky if they can walk the streets without being beaten. That’s already happening in Holland. When it happens in Toronto, we will know that Smitherman’s buddy Barbara Hall has been one of the major contributors to that disaster.
But maybe we will witness a miracle and see Ms. Hall charging the unsavoury characters I quoted above… Don’t bet on that – it’s much easier to chase bloggers, who criticize the Islamic invasion. It’s not hard to scare them, so Major Barbara and her death squads for sure would go after them. Besides that,
the crazy Islamists can always hurt you, so she would be just as sure to stay away from them.
Let the Islamization continue…
