The second protest against the Toronto District School Board’s policy of allowing Islamic prayers in public schools took place on August 8.
In addition to the speakers, who spoke at the July event – G.J. Rancourt, Meir Weinstein and Ron Banerjee – there was a special guest, the prominent critic of radical Islam Raheel Raza.
More protesters attended this event than the previous one. The organizers prepared a petition to be signed and collected donations to continue the actions of the coalition.
The other side was better organized and largely expanded. There was a whole bunch of sweet Muslim girls and a few boys, who did their best to present themselves as victims. That’s why I call them the “Taqiyya Squad” – although nice in the beginning, at certain point they tried to take over the event (more about that later).
Aren’t they cute? They thank the TDSB dhimmis for letting Islamists control the schools. They invoke “laws” and “fundamental freedoms” which will be gone once Islam has its way. “Treat Others the Way You Want to Be Treated” – how does that work for the Christians in Egypt?
The smiley hijab girl should get refund of the tuition paid to her university, which didn’t teach her how to spell “CONSCIENCE”.
Then they displayed a long list of organizations, which support their cause:
Frankly, I would’ve been embarrassed to have most of those organizations as my supporters – many of them have been supporting Muslim radicalism or involved in fraud (like ISNA).
And of course, no event would be complete without the presence of Omar Quyum and his buddies. They were ready and willing to provoke fights and arguments. In the end they attacked even Raheel Raza.
The speakers emphasized the importance of keeping our schools secular. In her impressive talk Raheel Raza gave voice to those Muslims, who don’t want to succumb to Islamic radicalism. The defenders of the mosqueteria create the impression that all Muslims are a monolithic group, which is not true. There
are Muslims from different sects and even secular ones, who don’t want to become pawns in the games of the Wahabi fanatics. The traditional Canadian
values are much more important to them.
Ron Banerjee spoke about the organizations, which support that prayer program. When talking about the gender segregation in the Valley Park Middle School, the image of what was going on was quite disgusting – he asked how it was possible burly old imams to ask 12-13 year old girls whether they are menstruating.
Meir Weinstein’s topic was the increasing anti-Semitism, which recently caused a hate crime – a synagogue in Toronto was defaced with the slogan “Islam Will Rule” (which CBC chose to ignore).
Blazingcatfur will post videos of the speeches, so you’ll be able to see and hear them.
Very special gratitude is owed to the men from the Jewish Defence League, who ensured the safety of the event. Although there were many police officers present (more than the first time), they kept their distance and it was up to JDL to ensure that Qayum and the other were kept under control (they really tried hard to start arguments).
At certain point, the Taqiyya Squad decided to move forward and take control of the event. Due to the discrete but firm stand of JDL, they were stopped before the police got involved. But what else could you expect from Islamists who pretend to be nice and sweet until they get the chance to stab you in the back?
Luckily, the confrontation was prevented in a way that most participants didn’t even notice.
Here are some more pictures.

The intrusion is stopped:
Things are under control:
Amazing! I took that Muslima’s picture and she didn’t punch me in the face:
The arguments continue:
Can we consider this a dialogue?
Qayum and his buddies are called for a little talk with the police:
Clenched fists in Raheel Raza’s face:
Raheel tells Qayum exactly what she thinks about his cause, after that she left upset (sorry for the out-of-focus picture, but everything happened too fast):
