I probably shouldn’t say that, but I am concerned about Olivia’s campaign. Not because she may lose the election (that’s given), but because she makes a fool of herself with regularity, which is as predictable as the movements of the planets. I am not sure, if we owe this to her own “genius” or her inept campaign manager, but it works.
We saw her flying to communist China to beg for votes; getting the endorsement of the mentally disturbed Iron Sheik (who hates Hulk Hogan for supposedly being homosexual); even using the World Cup to trash Rob Ford.
With the ending of the Muslim Ramadan seen as another chance for publicity, Olivia didn’t miss the opportunity to do again something weird. At a “community Eid dinner” she was hosted by Imam Omar Sudebar (The Islamic Society of Peel, Brampton) and even posed for a photo with him, which she later shared proudly with her Twitter followers.
Again, in her zeal to go after every vote that could go her way, she failed to do her homework. Thanks to people like the journalist and security expert Jonathan Halevi, who follow characters like Imam Omar, I can give you more information about Olivia’s new friend.
When the horrible terrorist group ISIL (a.k.a. ISIS) conquered a large part of Syria and Iraq to create the new Muslim “Caliphate,” Imam Omar shared the exciting news with his Facebook friends. One of his pious followers asked a question about the new Arab state: “In your opinion are they setting up an Islamic state properly according to the ruling?”
Now, if you haven’t lived under a rock for the last year, you would know that ISIS represents the most disgusting and sadistic forces of Islam. They have beheaded, burned, shot, maimed, crucified, buried alive and expelled thousands and thousands of Christians and Muslims. Even a large number of Muslims abhors them. The question about whether they set up a “proper” Islamic state is absurd.
The Imam’s answer speaks for itself: “There’s too little that we really know of them to really tell.”
He doesn’t feel the need to condemn the world’s most violent terrorist group.
Way to go, Olivia!
But wait, there’s more!
Imam Omar was one of the people, who in 2012 published a Muslim declaration on women’s rights. How does he see the rights of women in Islam? In an article on the same topic he explains (quoted by Halevi):
If for some reason the wife becomes stubborn, arrogant or disobedient even after the husband is doing his part then Allah has introduced a three point dispute resolution plan, by mentioning, “But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance then;
… 2. Forsake them in bed: If the problem persists after exercising the first measure then the husband should refrain from having sexual relations with her.
3. Strike them: If the problem still does not get resolved then as a final resort Allah has permitted the husband to discipline his wife by striking her, however this does not imply that Allah is promoting domestic violence. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has made it very clear that the beating should not be agonizing in any shape or form. He mentioned in his sermon during the ‘Farewell Pilgrimage’, “…and hit them lightly.” Ibn Jareer has recorded in his ‘tafseer’ that `Ataa asked Ibn Abbas (R.A.) to define ‘hitting lightly’. Ibn Abbas (R.A.) explained, “(To hit) with a miswak (a wooden tooth stick) or something similar.” If one were to practically experiment hitting himself with a miswak he would immediately come to realize that he can barley even inflict any pain on himself let alone others. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has also instructed, “Do not strike the face and do not censure (your wife)…” (Sunan Abu Däw?d). This clearly shows that verbal and physical abuse is not being encouraged in this verse at all and that they are clearly prohibited in Islam. On one occasion many women had visited the Prophet’s (P.B.U.H.) family to complain about their husbands beating them. Consequently the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) admonished their husbands publically by stating, “Many women have encircled Muhammad’s family complaining about their husbands. Those men are not the best of you.” (Sunan Abu Däw?d)…
The objective of striking her lightly is to discipline her and to make her realize that what she is doing is unwarranted.
Should I remind you again that this wife-beating fan is Olivia’s new friend? I thought she was a feminist.
She probably picked up some of his “Muslim feminist” advice, because she showed up in another mosque dressed like a real obedient Muslim woman (h/t Ho Hum).
She is complete – with hijab and a Muslim robe. However, the most ridiculous part is the tweet: “Great exchange with friends in Etobicoke this afternoon. People are looking fwd to progressive change.”
Well, I understand the necessity of fake politeness among politicians, but that is going over the top. The two guys next to her look like they just crawled out of Osama’s cave. If they are “looking forward to progressive change,” I have a nice piece of swampland in Florida to sell you.
Maybe her new Muslim buddies would be interested to know that the pious hijab woman with Chinese accent, who visited their mosque, organized just a month ago the biggest, baddest drag queen show in the history of Toronto’s Gaytown. And she pimped out expertly her “performers” on Facebook.
I wouldn’t repeat what the Imam and the weird guys in the mosque would say about the drag queens and the topless girls before stoning them to death. (And they may save a few stones for the NDP Queen.) I don’t think that Olivia is so stupid that she won’t know how Islam treats such activities.
Nothing surprising here. Once again we see a politician without conscience and morals, who could do and say anything to get elected.
This is the new normal in Canada.
