Canada: Muslim Cabbies Refuse Blind With Dogs
Thanks to Pamela Geller:
Imposing Islam on the secular marketplace. If a Muslim won’t pick up a passenger with a dog (or with alcohol, for that matter), then he shouldn’t be a taxi driver. It’s just that simple. If he wants to live under the sharia, then he should not leave his Islam-controlled land.
It’s not just Canada:Â Muslim cabdrivers in the US have sought to imposeÂ these same sharia restrictions. (In Europe and Australia too.)

Muslim Taxi Drivers Prayer Demos Spook New Yorkers
Roughly half of the city’s 40,000-odd cabbies are Muslims who hail from countries all over the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere. These Muslims are religiously obliged to spread Islam; which means they use all and any means to call the unbelievers to convert. To draw attention, they break the law, park inÂ Â front of hydrants, double park, triple park, forfeit fares and risk sizable tickets.

In Saskatoon, Canada, Muslim taxi drivers are refusing to give rides to blind people with seeing-eye dogs. The drivers have been citing religious grounds, saying dogs are considered “unclean”Â animalsÂ in Islam.
Mike Simmonds, who has been blind for close to 10 years, requires a guide dog with him at all times. He reported to theSunÂ newspaperÂ that he is bitterly disappointed after taxi drivers at the station by his home have repeatedly refused to give him a ride.
Simmonds turned to the taxi company’s management, and was told that the company has noÂ guidelinesÂ forbidding discrimination against dog owners.Â After he was refused by taxis 3 times, Simmonds submitted a complaint to the Saskatchewan Committee of Human Rights.
Muslim antagonism towards dogs is not a new thing in Canada. In 2012, Toronto policeÂ arrested a JewÂ after he shoved back a Muslim who had punched him for notÂ movingÂ his “unclean” dog further away from Muslim women during an anti-Israel rally.
Canine cruelty in the Muslim world was highlighted during the Muslim Brotherhood protests in Egypt, as in late October protesters were found to be using “puppy bombs” by dipping dogs in gasoline and setting them on fire.
