Shock horror in Canuckistan: mosque asking that workplaces respect Islamic dress codes spreads hate against Jews, West

Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque

* Update: the Board of the Mosque published a response to the article in the Toronto Star on its website, but refused to meet for an interview. The board accuses the Toronto Star of “intimidation” and of “harming the image of Somali Muslims in Canada”. Grievance theater as always: “we are preparing ourselves for the inevitable backlash of hatred and threats that will come with the suggestion that we support radical Islam and that we are therefore terrorists. While we have become accustom to this form of racism, we never get used to it and it is very harmful to our people.  We will reserve judgment on your article until after it is published and we are hopeful that it is accurate, fair and balanced. If it is not, we will seek the appropriate advice from our legal counsel.”

Thank you, may Allah guide you to right path. (the right path of Islam, which is the only one, sic/ed)

Crying about “Islamophobia” while preaching hate and Islamic supremacism — of course, this will come as no surprise to those who are familiar with similar behavior patterns from Islamic groups in the United States. “Mosque fights for rights, but vilifies Jews, West,” by John Goddard for the Toronto Star, November 12 (thanks to John):

A mosque asking that Canadian workplaces respect a strict Muslim dress code is at the same time disseminating slurs against Jews and Western societies, and warning members against social integration.

The Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque near Kipling Ave. and Rexdale Blvd. serves as the religious authority for eight Somali women complaining to the Canadian Human Rights Commission that UPS Canada Ltd. violated their religious rights at a sorting plant. The mosque, founded in 1990 and serving upwards of 10,000 people, preaches strict adherence to sharia, or Islamic law, and no compromise with the West.

Teachings on the mosque’s website,, refer to non-Muslim Westerners as “wicked,” “corrupt” and “our clear enemies.”

Sometimes Jews are singled out.

“Is it permissible for women to wear high-heeled shoes?” begins one posting in question-and-answer format. “That is not permissible,” comes the reply. “It involves resembling the Disbelieving Women or the wicked women. It has its origin among the Jewish women.”

Modern pastimes are condemned.

“What is the ruling on subscribing to sports channels?” another question begins. “Watching some of the female spectators, when the camera focuses on them time after time” stirs “evil inclinations,” the lesson reads. “Some (players) may not even believe in Allaah.”

Mosque leaders refused repeated requests for an interview.

A disclaimer on the website says questions and answers do not necessarily reflect the mosque’s views. But the About Us page says: “All questions and answers on this site (are) prepared, approved and supervised by (the mosque’s imam) Bashir Yusuf Shiil.”

The mosque’s stand on the UPS case also appears contradictory.

In September, a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal heard two weeks of testimony from eight mosque members alleging “Islamophobia” at the company’s west Toronto plant. Three final days of testimony are scheduled for next week.

The eight women, who lost their jobs at UPS, say Islam dictates that they wear a full-length skirt for modesty. The courier company insists that any skirt be knee-length for safety, as workers climb ladders up to 6 metres high.

Under their skirt, the women wear full-length trousers but say they do not want the lower part showing in case the shape of the calf can be discerned.

The complaint originally centred on the company’s use of temporary workers and uneven enforcement of its safety rules.

But the key question remains: Is UPS insisting on shorter hems for safety or is it violating religious rights by denying the women permanent jobs unless they conform?

So far, no Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque representative has attended the sessions, but the women cited the mosque as their place of worship and religious authority, and tabled a letter from its administration. “This is to certify that the religion of Islam requires all Muslim women to cover her entire body inclusive of the legs, arms, head, ears and neck,” the letter reads. “As such, (the women) would not be able to wear pants as an outfit.”

On the other hand, the mosque’s website teachings forbid women to work outside the home in the first place. “It is known that when women go to work in the workplaces of men, this leads to mixing with men,” one such posting says.

“This is a very dangerous matter,” it reads. “It is in clear opposition to the texts of the Shariah that order the women to remain in their houses and to fulfill the type of work that is particular for her …

“We ask Allah to protect our land and the lands of all Muslims from the plots and machinations of their enemies.”…

Questions to the mosque about its teachings were met with evasiveness over three weeks.

Mosque chairman Osman Mohamed three times agreed to an interview and three times cancelled at last minute. Imam Shiil was said to be in Saudi Arabia and unreachable. Mosque administrator Abukar Mohamed confused matters further by appearing to agree with UPS, saying: “The Quran says women must be covered – it doesn’t give you the specific clothes. But I am not a religious authority.”



Further teachings found, official website of Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque in western Toronto:

Islamic guidelines to women.

The enemies of Islam know the importance of Hijab and the value of remaining at home … They therefore vehemently attack Hijab … They hate Islam and us. They wish to see our demise and downfall.

What is the ruling regarding a head scarf (that fails to cover ears and neck)?

The head scarf is a compromise and there is no such thing in Islam!

Save the women.

Once (a Muslim woman) becomes introduced to the wickedness of Western ideology and concepts … (she) becomes fixated on trying to appear and act like her “role models” of corruption.

What is Islam’s position on female circumcision?

It is an honour for women but not obligatory.

Is it permitted for a Muslim woman to pierce her nose?

It serves no purpose, and causes pain and mutilation.

Excessive laughter.

This problem is widespread, especially among the youth.

  1. As long as I have known Somalis have I known trouble. First in Nairobi, the British had an air base in Eastleigh, surrounded by squatter camps, major industry, prostitution, the entire industry was Somali. It was not a question of morals but a health hazard and even though clap was treated as a self-inflicted injury, the servicemen kept getting it. Going rate at the time was US $2.80 for the night.
    Next problem was surveillance flights over Somalia, too low and the tribesmen kept taking pot-shots at the planes. Though Somalia was a British colony at the time, these pot-shots were not a sign of revolt, just a normal pastime, guys just having fun.

    I thought I got away from all that when I finally got to Canada, as you can see in the papers,no such luck. They are the most arrogant, ignorant, uncivilized bastards in all of Africa.

  2. “we are preparing ourselves for the inevitable backlash of hatred and threats that will come …”



    The only “hatred and threats” I see with regard to Islam — COME from Islam.

    These whineybutz are such drama queens!!!! They just CRAVE publicity. Once again –inevitably– there will be NO “backlash” of any kind. Eventually some creative Muslim desiring proof of victimhood will take it upon him/herself to throw rocks through a mosque window, or put a ham sandwich in a Koran, and voila!! Sufficient justification to call yet another press conference wherein the Religion of Perpetual Whiners can piss-and-moan about Western Hatred Toward Islam.

    (An aside to the Islamists: it’s a free country. If you just plain can’t stand freedom and equality and those horrid man-made laws, YOU ARE FREE TO GO BACK to your Islamic Paradise where Islam is respected and Sharia is the last word. Really. Apologies to Tom Wolfe, but — You CAN Go Home Again! Buh-bye!)

  3. ciccio’s comment

    As you clearly stated, from your response, your an uneducated individual to be talking the way you are talking. For you to judge a whole community, and race, of millions of people, for the faults of some, makes you someone whose not rational. It also makes you someone who, backs his “racial” antics, and judgements, by backing it up with personal encounters you had with few somalis. They are known to be cultured, and disciplined people, who can trace their lineage (so calling them a bastard) is far fetched. This whole Islam is an evil religion is getting so tiresome, if its such a bad religion, then im sure, it wouldnt be the fastest growing religion, with lots of its converts coming FROM WHEREEEEEEEEEEEEE north america,,,interestingly enough

    So ask yourself this, while ISLAM in a few years, shows that with its rate its going, to be the biggest religion, with its production of youth, while other religions (ahem ahem no children) which equals to no future…

    People need to stop preaching, tolerance, when they are in fact, underneath it all, just mean, let me rule over you, let my religion rule over you and vice versa

  4. well, sunshine –
    you ain’t so smart either – uneducated, that is – you need to read the Holy BOOKS of Islam, before you defend the ideology……………….
    But everywhere there are Somalis – Europa and in the USA, there are problems – they even want their passport pictures taken WITH a HIJAB ON –
    And if you notice, the majority that convert to Islam are MEN – male chauvinists – because that is what Muslim men are – control freaks – they even have the right to rape according to that sick Cult, and kill women, “that don’t know their place”.
    Look around the world, where Islam is really growing – it is still by “convert or die” – just look to India – look at Pakistan, which was NOT an Islamic country that long. Pakistan has excisted as a country more than 3000 years with Hindus and Sikhs.

    “People need to stop preaching, tolerance, when they are in fact, underneath it all, just mean, let me rule over you, let my religion rule over you and vice versa”

    Oh you are so right – that is excactly what the MUSLIMS needs to do – As far as I know they are the ONLY ones. who are RULED by religion. And as far as tolerance, they ain’t got it, and we have accepted their INTOLERANCE for too long already.
    If these Somali women will not live up to the dresscode at their job, “conflict with the religion” they should look for another job, namely housewife. – That is the ONLY job they can have without being in conflict, period –
    If any of them gets into an accident with that ridiculous outfit, and sue the job, what then? – another whiny story – that these Muslims are sooooo good for……..
