Memorializing "Islamophobia"

"In our view, when arguing semantics, it draws attention away from the core issues of hate and Islamphobia and anti-Muslim discrimination that are being discussed and how to effectively address them."
"Fear and hatred, if left unchecked, is certainly capable of leading to discrimination and violence, which we saw culminate on January 29 of last year when six innocent Muslim men were killed in their place of worship."
Ihsaan Gardee, director, National Council of Canadian Muslims

"We believe that January 29th should be dedicated to commemorating the memory of the victims of this terrible tragedy."
"This is the intolerable act of a single person and not that of an entire society."
"Quebecers are open and welcoming. They are not Islamophobic."
Samuel Poulin, Coalition Avenir Quebec

Re: Designating 29 January as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia
On behalf of the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), I am writing to you about the upcoming first anniversary of the Quebec City mosque attack that will take place on January 29, 2018. One year on, Canadian Muslim communities are still reeling from the devastating terrorist attack that claimed the lives of six Muslim men worshipping in their mosque -- fathers, husband and sons -- and gravely injured many others. 
For the first time in Canadian history, a place of worship was targeted by a horrific act of violence solely because the victims were Muslims. The question on so many minds is how do we prevent such a violent hate-motivated attack from targeting Canadian Muslims, or any other religious community, from ever occurring again?
With the rise of far-right extremist groups that continue to threaten the safety of Canadian Muslim institutions and congregations, it is critical that our elected leaders stand firmly against Islamophobia and the agents of bigotry who aim to foment hateful division between Canadians and their fellow Muslim citizens. We must not allow voices of hate, even ones that may initially appear to be on the margins, to permeate our public discourse and damage our social fabric.
As you have eloquently stated, in these difficult times we must always remember the bonds of unity as Canadians and protect the diverse and open nature of our society. To that end, we call on  your government to designate, by order [in] council or by proclamation, January 29th, as a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia, on or before the first anniversary.
This call is supported by a host of other Canadian Muslim organizations and community partners, listed below.
Such a designation will enable Canadians to collectively remember the victims of the attack and to enhance public education about the perils of hate, bigotry and Islamophobia. We look forward to your response to this important issue. Thank you.

Well, Ihsaan Gardee is writing to the right man for the job. To recognize the utter need to enforce the memory of one psychotic man's response to global Islamofascism by targeting a mosque of ordinary Muslim prayer when such Friday events usually conclude with imprecations against Jews and non-Muslims. Canada, a peaceful, pluralist society of equal rights for all, has changed, and not too subtly by the influx of Muslims migrating from various compass points of the world. The incidence of anti-Semitism has soared in lock-step with Muslim migration.

The situation of Jews who have lived peacefully, integrating with the societies in which they are citizens, from Sweden and Denmark, Norway and Germany, France and Belgium, Austria and Great Britain, Holland and Canada has been altered to the point where emigration from those countries where they have felt safe since the Second World War appears their only prospect for survival. Threats emanating from the growing, spreading Muslim populations exiting the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia have made life increasingly difficult for Jews experiencing violent attacks.

In Canada, bigotry and hatred is writ large emanating from the Muslim community in a variety of ways, most notably through the advent of the viral BDS campaign, leaving Jewish students on university campuses defensive and forlorn, overwhelmed by the strident, false accusations that pro-Palestinian sympathizers have adopted through the public relations campaigns set up to slander and delegitimize Israel. Hate-mongering Muslims spread their venomous accusations, filtering through trade unions, academia and wherever they manage a foothold to re-awaken slumbering Jew hatred.

So, cry me a river, Ihsaan Gardee. The tragedy of six innocent men is but a drop of misery in comparison to the terrifying hatred that Muslims in their sectarian dysfunction impose upon one another, slaughtering Shiite and Sunni by whichever of the two attains power and the theological permission to view the alternate as an insult to Islam. If Muslims and Arabs were interested in living as equals in those societies they infiltrate they would not engage in inciting to hatred and violence.

The 'voices in the wilderness' as expressed by Tarek Fatah and Raheel Raza warning of and against the creeping agenda of the Islamists like Ihsaan Gardee and all those Canadian Muslim groups, many of them associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, with their sympathies for terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram and Islamic State fail to capture the ear and understanding of leaders like Justin Trudeau, who prefers to confer with the Islamists who write to him requesting a national day set aside to condemn 'Islamophobia'.

A Prime Minister who lavishes millions in tax dollars on pacifying the victimization of the like of terrorist-trained Omar Khadr, one who is happy to meet and conference with someone of the ilk of Islamist Joshua Boyle. Trudeau, the 'feminist' confabbing with Boyle the sexual predator and wannabe Taliban 'fighter', who preyed on his own wife, objectifying her as a sex object and who, since his return to Canada has been tracked by police for sexual and violent felonies, making it problematical for Trudeau to spring another surprise on Canadians by granting Boyle millions in compensation for his 'suffering'.
