The Canadian Government is proclaiming a new law that would ban:
"Promoting Terrorism, Violence, or Criminal Activity: A foreign national who makes public statements or uses any means to broadcast, write, produce, publish or distribute material, including a website and public speaking, to express views which:
- (a) promote or glorify terrorist violence;
- (b) promote or glorify a listed entity under Regulations Establishing a List of Entities pursuant to the Criminal Code of Canada, Regulations Implementing the United Nations Resolutions on the Suppression of Terrorism or the United Nations Al-Qaida and Taliban Regulations;
- (c) counsel, encourage or incite others to commit terrorist activity or terrorist violence;
- (d) incite hatred that is likely to lead to violence against a specific group;
- (e) promote, counsel, encourage or incite serious criminal activity."
Islam is a political ideology which promotes—through the Quran and Prophetic tradition—the glorification of terrorist violence and counsels, encourages or incites others to commit terrorist activity or terrorist violence:
Jihad: The Ultimate Incitement of Hatred and Violence
Jihad is the central Islamic doctrine of holy war against non-Muslims which will be in force until all of them are converted to Islam or enslaved, or annihilated. Nine percent of Quranic verses, 24% of those revealed in Medina, exhort to Jihadi violence, while some 21% of the Sahih Bukhari hadiths and 67% of the Sira texts deal with Prophet Muhammad’s jihad. (For more, see http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-121.htm)
Exhorting Islamic holy war or Jihad for forced conversion, enslavement or annihilation of people, just because they follow Christian, Jewish, Polytheistic or other non-Islamic religions, is the worst kind of incitement of hatred and violence. Acting on Jihadi incitement of hatred and violence, Muslim holy warriors have murdered some 270 million people during the past 1,400 years. Since the September 11, 2001 Jihad attacks in America, there have been over 20,000 violent attacks by Jihadi groups across the world. Prophet Muhammad was the first Jihadi Muslim commander to apply the doctrine of Jihad to kill innocent infidels. He massacre 600 to 900 Jews of the Banu Qurayza tribe (627AD), and hundreds were put to death in his attack of Banu Mustaliq (627AD) and settlement of Khayber (628 AD). Prophet Muhammad himself in on record to claim his violent activities: “Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been made victorious with terror.” (Bukhari 4852:220)
Islam is the worst among ideologies—spewing hatred and violence against others—that humankind has known, far worse than Nazism or White Supremacism or any other ideologies, because it sanctifies its hatred and violence with the blessings of God. If anything deserves a ban under the new Canadian Law, it must be the religion of Islam, at least its holy scriptures—the Quran, Hadith and Sira.
Below is a sampling of the incitement of hatred and violence in the Quran that will put the Islam’s holy book on the guillotine under the new Canadian Law:
DIVINE SANCTIONS TO MURDER
- “murder them and treat them harshly” (Qur’an 9:123)
- “Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers”; “smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them” (Qur’an 8:12, cp. 8:60)
- “...kill the disbelievers wherever we find them” (Qur’an 2:191)
- “fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem” “for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods” (Qur’an 22:19-22)
- “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels (non-Muslims) out to the last.’” (Qur’an 8:7)
- “Strike off the heads of the disbelievers”; and after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.” (Qur’an 47:4)
- “The punishment for those who wage war against Allah and His Prophet and make mischief in the land, is to murder them, crucify them, or cut off a hand and foot on opposite sides...their doom is dreadful. They will not escape the fire, suffering constantly.” (Qur’an 5:33)
There are numerous such verses in the Quran, inciting hatred, violence and genocide. From Islam’s daily prayers to every other ritual is an inherent hatred of infidels that demonize them or call for terrorizing and murdering them. Islam is unremittingly anti-women, anti-Semitic and anti-homosexual. As far as anti-Semitism is concerned, Islam succeeded in what Hitler failed to achieve: Muhammad had made Medina free of the Jews; Muslims subsequently succeeded in desolating the entire Muslim world of the Jews—a region that housed the largest portion of the world Jewry (70-80%) at the time of Islam’s birth.
Islam is a direct threat to the peace and security of the Canadian people, to its democracy and freedom. So, if the Canadian Government wants to enforce its new law, it is crystal clear what will be its first target.
However, this will not happen. The real intent of this law is to promote Islam by targeting those, who speaks up against hatred and violence of Islam, as the purveyors of hate speech, thus denying them entry into Canada. And we already saw the first glimpse of it on May 13, when Pamela Geller’s scheduled appearance to speak in Toronto was cancelled due to pressure applied by the police. The story from the National Post:
"Police dispute allegations that there were any threats of intimidation, saying instead that “a discussion” took place Tuesday between Insp. Ricky Veerappan, leader of the York Regional Police force’s diversity, equity and inclusion bureau, and Rabbi Kaplan, who is also a volunteer chaplain with the force. Insp. Veerappan said that during their discussion, the rabbi was presented with more information and a decision.
“If he had not cancelled the event – and again, that was his decision – then we would have had to re-evaluate his relationship with York Regional Police because it would be clearly be in contravention of the values of our organization,” said Insp. Veerappan.
“Our concern is that Rabbi Kaplan is also a representative of the police, he wears a police uniform, and some of the comments that have been attributed to Ms. Geller really posed a conflict situation for us at York Regional Police.”
