They’re No Different Than Us
By the time you receive this, the House of Commons may have already taken one more step toward curtailing our right to Freedom of Speech. Voting on M-103 is scheduled for today (Feb 16).
The ‘Anti-Islamophobia’ campaign is actually a Trojan Horse intended to Islamicize Canada.
The Main Stream Media—in their struggle to find their place in a new media environment—are joining with a lot of politicians in a drive to normalize Islam across Canada. A recent CBC News headline ran thus: “They’re no different than us” said the headline, quoting a visitor to the recently-vandalized Point-St. Charles mosque in Québec, as though the visitor’s comment was statement of fact.
But it’s not.
Of course, Muslims are human beings, and thus entitled to all the human rights to which all Canadians are entitled. But that fact doesn’t erase the glaring differences that set Muslims apart from their fellow Canadians.
The differences are right at the heart of their faith. The Qur’an instructs them: “Do not make friends with Jews and Christians; they are friends with one another.” (Surah 5:51) This is in marked contrast to the command of Jesus to “Love your enemies and do good unto those who hate you”. The Islamic faith assigns atheists, Buddhists and Hindus to a fiery hell and mandates its own adherents to compel religious conversion and compliance by the use of force.
“But wait!” you may say. “Doesn’t Christianity also seek to impose its views on those of other faiths?”
There was a time when some misguided Christians used force to impose their will on others; during the Dark Ages, when the ‘church militant’ turned its back on the Bible, forbidding believers to read it and threatened non-believers with the Inquisition; but the mainstream of Christianity, from the first century on, has always taught believers to love non-believers into the Kingdom of God. That was the message of Jesus, the ‘King of the Jews’. And it still is.
But the continuing message of Mohammed was—and is—to “instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.” (Surah 8:12)
Christianity (apart from the Crusades which began as a defensive war to protect pilgrims to the Holy Land, but devolved into a war against Islam and Judaism) was not meant to be a militant faith; but Islam has always been a faith spread at the point of the sword. That’s why Prof. Samuel Huntington wrote “Islam has bloody borders.”
Islam’s present invasion of Europe is merely the continuation of an invasion that was thwarted 700 years ago at the gates of Vienna.
The Muslim Brotherhood, one of the major sponsors of terrorism through its scores of front groups like the Muslim Students’ Association, the Islamic Society of North America, and more than 50 others, has openly declared a “stealth jihad” or a “cultural jihad”; the goal, says the MB, is to take over.
Haitham Ibn Thbait, head of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, recently exhorted American Muslims to avoid falling into the “electoral trap”, and called upon them not to vote in elections, saying that getting Muslims to vote was part of an effort to assimilate them, and that they had been “tricked” into voting for Clinton, Bush, and Obama in the past.
Speaking at the Khilafah 2016 conference, held in Chicago on May 15, Ibn Thbait further called Obama a “terrorist” and said “Islam is here to dominate.” His address was posted on YouTube by Hizb Ut-Tahrir May 20, 2016.
Christianity made serious strides away from errant militancy in the 16th and 17th centuries, with the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic counter-reformation. Today, there are a pitiful few voices calling for a similar reformation of the Islamic faith; but they are rare—Salim Mansur and Tarek Fatah are Canadian examples; Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Ayaan Hersi Ali are notable American exceptions. But those reformers are called “apostates” by the Wahabi imams of the many Saudi-sponsored mosques springing up throughout North America.
In Islam, there is only one penalty for apostasy: death.
Canada’s Judaeo-Christian heritage has been a bulwark defending all faiths or no faith: the Christian call to individual conscience has always meant, in this country, that each person can choose.
The brand of Islam resurgent all over the globe today does not advocate individual choice; the Qur’an openly mandates conversion of non-Muslims by offering “people of the book”—Jews and Christians—three choices: become Muslims, become dhimmis (a less-than-third-class status, subject to severe strictures and an extra head-tax called jizya), or be killed. Other non-Muslims get a much starker choice: convert to Islam or die.
That kind of dawa (evangelism) is as far away as possible from being “just like us”, and the ill-informed politicians who are supporting M-103 need to give their heads a shake. M-103 is merely an ill-disguised adoption of the Islamic Shariah concept of ‘anti-blasphemy’ laws: but Shariah, which the Parliamentary Secretary to Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Omar Alghabra, has tried three times to import into this nation, doesn’t protect other religions; only Islam.
No, they are not yet “just like us.” Not by a long shot.
CHP Canada will stand and protect Canadians from Shariah Law. Join today and add your voice to the growing voice to protect our Charter-guaranteed and God-given rights.
