Canada’s Growing Islamic Radicalism

Pages: 1 2

For years, Islamic extremists and radicals have endangered the safety of various countries of the world, specifically in the Middle East, but also in European and North American countries. Through terrorist activities and inhumane practices, Islamic extremists have created numerous victims in their own Islamic countries, as well as in the countries to which they have migrated. Among other factors, the lax immigration laws, especially in Canada, have enabled the spread of terrorist activity. Canada has not faced a deadly terrorist attack yet; however, terrorist attacks have already been planned for Canada and prevented by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. It is only a matter of time before the CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service) is unable to prevent another attack from happening.

On June 2, 2006, 18 Al Qaeda members plotted a series of terrorist activities in one of the more prominent provinces of Canada: Ontario. This case is known as the 2006 Ontario Terrorism Case or the “Toronto 18.” The terrorists planned to detonate truck bombs and to fire in crowded areas. In addition, they aimed to storm the Canadian Broadcasting Centre, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, the Canadian Parliament building, and the Parliamentary Peace Tower. One of the major reasons that the terrorists had the Canadian Parliament in their agenda was that they planned to behead Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other Canadian officials. Some of the suspects of the Toronto 18 Case were Qayyum Abdul Jamal, Shareef Abdelhaleem, Steven Vikash Chand, Jahmaal James, Fahim Ahmad, Asad Ansari, Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, Zakaria Amara, and Saad Khalid. Aside from Steven Vikash Chand, who recently converted to Islam, the rest of the terrorists came from countries such as Pakistan and Egypt. They were also active members in some of the Islamic centers of Toronto, such as the Al Rahman Islamic Centre.

As student activists, we have experienced several incidents that have brought the reality of radical Islam and the teachings of jihad close to home. For example, on the York University campus, there are numerous Muslim students who show a tremendous amount of hatred toward Jews and deny the Holocaust and the right of Israel to exist. Some have openly said that Christians should hate Jews because they crucified Jesus. Many of these students were raised in Arab-Muslim countries, whose state-maintained media is horrifically anti-Semitic. More disturbing is that these students are seemingly sincere in their beliefs. They honestly and wholeheartedly believe that the Holocaust was made up by Jews to garner sympathy for one thing or another.

This past March, during Islamic Awareness Week at York, a Muslim student said that instead of the Christians United for Israel organization, there should be a Christians United for Sharia (Islamic) law organization. He was also a firm supporter of jihad against all infidels, and was proudly boasting about his belief in Sharia law and that Muslims would succeed in bringing it to North America. He specified his belief in jihad against Jews and anyone who did not believe in Islam. He also asserted that moderate Muslims were not true Muslims. When this man was asked for his name and an email address to continue the conversation privately, he refused to give any contact information. Later, it was found out that he was not a student at York, but rather came with a group of other men from a mosque in Toronto to preach their radical ideology to as many students as possible.

    Its interesting that the Muslim's like to bring up the fact that the Jews crucified Jesus when they believe no such thing. Their claim is that Jesus did not die on the Cross, Judas did. As Christians we should remember that it was God the Father who sent Jesus to the cross for my sins, so I (a Gentile) sent Jesus to the Cross. Remember that Jesus was said to have been slain before the"foundation of the World", so God had finalized his plans before he created Adam. The Muslim hatred of the Jews is nothing new, they supported the Nazi's and that's one of the reasons the Belfour agreement was formed. It's nothing new that the Arabs hate the Jews, Esau hated Jacob thousands of years ago. Muslim's know history like I know camels. They only use the parts of history that support their cause and forget the rest. Israel lawfully became a nation because the actions of the UN. 5 Arab nations attacked the brand new Israel in 1948 and got their butts kicked. Israel's rights to the land were finalized because the Arabs failed to agree to any peace agreement and because Israel fought and won a defensive war the land becomes their land lawfully.

      Their use of Jesus is just another way they use to attack the Jews. Hitler did the same thing, and he was no friend of Christianity either.

      Ron,
      I do agree that Islamic extremists are a treat everywhere in the world but so are other extremists practicing other religions or believes. I do believe in peace and human rights regardless of religions. I do believe people in Israel like other people have to live in peace. No doubt about it. But can you tell me what was the name of the land now we call it Israel?And what about Palestinians' right? I think the best way to establish peace in that region and put an end to all hatred in middle east is negotiation. Israelis and Palestinians need to recognize each other's rights and live peacefully next to each other.

    In one sentence – the West is screwed by allowing Muslims to come to their countries under the guise of multiculturalism and then allowing them to use our democratic laws to spread their murderous ideology and trying to suppress our freedom of speech since they get offended with everything that we do here. And they are succeeding in their efforts as shown by the UN resolution sponsored by OIC to criminalize insulting religions. There is only one religion whose followers are always offended or feeling insulted about their religion and that religion is, you guessed it, Islam. They demand the freedom of religion and speech for themselves yet want to suppress our freedom of speech.

    Unfortunately, the West still does not recognize this threat to us and is still not curbing this menace!!!

    If this continues – the west is doomed !!

    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    Islam strives for world domination.

    The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

    The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

    The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

    Islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

    Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    Mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

    Is the Canadian government going to discard this kind of trash? Why are they allowed to hurt us promoting their sick agenda? This people acting like this are injecting their malignant hate in the complete society. We have the right to live in peace, to be protected and enjoy life without their incitement. This lunatic behavior must be banned or they must be spelled from our countries. Enough is enough!!!

    Seriously … All religions are a pile of sh!t , with different flavour . As long as people believe in a God they will kill each other for it ……

  • peace

    As a woman borned in a muslem country,what I saw from Islam was only discrimination and racism,paternalism,terrorism,violence and retrospection.while they see this comment they will become angry because they don't think that one can comment its beleives specially if that person is a woman that according the real Islamic rules it is just a creative to make a peace for man and according its Sharia she is considered as a half individual comparing to man. They think that they live in 1400years ago and their rules are exactly the same as 1400 years ago.As a woman I have seen many crulties and discrimination against my sex(female).

  • peace

    I can not beleive how could a woman obey these Islamic rules without losing her pride.How could a man who beleives in human rights beleives in Islam either because these two are just like two parallel lines that never meet each other.If you see some of them thinks other than this,be sure that they are so stupid that can not understand simple meanings of human rights and democracy or they don't want to understand for many different reasons like political,economical,fear and so on.I am so sorry to tell this that although I respect honest religious people but I think all relegions are manmade equipment to get more power

  • peace

    .I am so sorry for western countries that have made a watch and wait diplomacy and just see dollars that comes from their oil.yes they are reach and be sure that it is just the power of money that they can tell what ever they like so easily while other voices are not heard any more.Just be careful that this radical Islam or any other radicalism that is getting more and more reach and powerful and also numerous( a muslem man can marry with 4women and they like to have many children) and on the other hand it is supported also by western governments because of their short term economical benifits or other political reasons without considering long term damage of this kind of ideologies that just like cancer cells spreading around .But these governments some they will wake up that is too late and this ideology will contaminate all countries of the world and we have to observe 3rd world war or religious wars……………………………
