What goes around comes around – Galloway barred from Canada

Galloway gets a taste of his own medicine

Anti-Israel hate-monger British MP George Galloway has been finally barred from Canada by a Canadian court this afternoon.

What goes around comes around. Galloway was all in favor of barring Geert Wilders from Britain. Here’s the videotape.

From Carl in J’lem

* Ezra Levant makes it clear that its not a free speech issue:

This case is an interesting intersection between free speech and national sovereignty and security.

Galloway is not a Canadian citizen; he does not have a right to come to Canada (nor any other rights guaranteed to our citizens). He would be a guest, and he is being turned away for security reasons.

Were he a citizen, he would have the right to spout his bigotry in Canada (but not to engage in material support for terrorists, which is a crime.) If he were a citizen, he would be allowed back home, and arrested for his crimes.

I don’t see this as a free speech issue; I see it as a sovereignty issue — keeping out an undesirable foreigner who has no right to be here, and who boasts about violating our criminal code.

Good riddance.

Stephen Taylor has some additional video clips of Galloway. I’m not sure why it’s our legal duty to import such a man if it’s our good luck that he isn’t a Canadian already.

TORONTO — As part of a “zero tolerance approach towards anti-Semitism,” the federal government is reviewing all its public service grants to remove state support from groups that advocate hatred or express support for terrorism.

OTTAWA — Toronto terror suspect Mahmoud Jaballah taught the children of Ahmed Khadr in Pakistan, says a new document from the Canadian Security Intelligence Service that closely links Jaballah to a Canadian clan known for its terrorist ties.

The allegations that Jaballah was more than a passing acquaintance of the deceased Khadr is contained in a CSIS summary of its case against the Egyptian-born suspect.

Canuckistan: Muslim Gatekeepers or Barbarians at the Gate?

Welcome to Canada

                 Infiltration Watch

Andrew Bolt

Canada’s National Post reports on an unusual choice of gatekeeper:

                             

It’s well known that Khaled Mouammar wants Ottawa to remove Hamas and Hezbollah from a list of banned organizations and replace them with the Israel Defence Forces.

It’s well known that the president of the Canadian Arab Federation recently called Jason Kenney, the Minister of Immigration, a “professional whore” for supporting Israel and criticizing the presence of Hamas and Hezbollah flags at a recent protest, prompting Mr. Kenney to say he would review the CAF’s federal funding.

But it is less well known that Mr. Mouammar spent the 11 years prior to February, 2005, sitting as a member of the Immigration and Refugee Board, deciding whether refugee claimants from such North African countries as Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and Somalia should be allowed to stay in Canada.

An eyewitness:

Tonight at the U of T [Israeli Apartheid Week] event, two Jewish students were assaulted by the Palestinian “Security” team for being “disruptive” (asking a legitimate question “does Israel have a right to exist”) The Palestinian “security” smacked a student in the head and grabbed him by his neck, while another “security” officer told a second Jewish student to “Shut the F**ck up or he’ll saw his head off”…All of this was done in a crowded lecture room with over 100 witnesses!!

I was there, there are no pictures, filming and taking pictures was prohibited (they seem to have a problem with the general public hearing what they say) it was reported to the police who chose (as usual) to do NOTHING…

This is a DISGRACE.

Please send complaints to 51 division police and to U of T president David Naylor and (politely) demand that they do something about this!

[UPDATED]

Be sure to see the assaulted student’s statement here.

MAN ACCUSED OF TERROR ACTIVITIES WAS EXPRESSING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM: DEFENCE

With thanks to Pamela:

This is the whole war in a nutshell — and we are losing that war, as evidenced in the headline of the article. The jihadi’s claim  is accurate – he is following his religious teachings; perhaps it is offensive to prosecute him for it. That’s how far we are down the rabbit hole we are digging.

MONTREAL — The videos found on Said Namouh’s computer when police raided his Quebec apartment in 2007 are brutal: point-blank executions of Westerners, suicide bombings, a charred soldier’s body dragged through the street in celebration. Others offered tips on bomb-making or threatened Western governments over the presence of troops in Afghanistan.

A pernicious evil that must be repudiated': Jason Kenney at the anti-Semitism summit

Canada’s Immigration Minister Jason Kenney stands tall:

National Post

                                    

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney addressed the international conference aimed at addressing rising anti-Semitism yesterday at London’s Lancaster House, on behalf of the government of Canada. In the full text of his speech below, he explains why he his government will cut funding to groups, who, he says, express “hateful sentiments” against Jews—he mentions the Canadian Arab Federation and the Canadian Islamic Congress—and calls on other countries to also take a “zero tolerance approach to expressions of anti-Semitism in the public square.” 

* Real bad crazyness: U.S. Senator John Kerry sux up to Hamas, visits Gaza

* Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota, was in Gaza early Thursday

* Christopher Hitchens  has been mugged by the Syrians while on a visit in Beirut

I doubt too many other countries will follow suit: Canada remains the only nation outside Israel to so far announce its boycott of the  Durban 2 conference, which, last time around, proved to be a veritable carnival of “anti-Semitism in the public square.” Most European states, rather, have demonstrated in recent years that their worry over offending allegedly restive Muslim populations typically outweighs long-held liberal principles. Certainly Mr. Kenney’s speech demonstrates that Canadians are either plucky enough and/or demographically fortunate enough, to not have to compromise on standing against hate. Whichever it is, that Canadian politicians can make such unapologetic speeches as the one below, without trepidation, is a rare, and, I suspect, generally under-appreciated, thing.

Canadian Arab Federation president Khaled Mouammar calls Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney a “professional whore” for supporting Israel

Dreck from Arabia:

Arabic group loses federal funding over hatred..

Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney was called a “professional whore” by Canadian Arab Federation president Khaled Mouammar.

Khaled Mouammar of the Canadian Arab Federation 
OTTAWA — Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is poised to slash federal funding to Canada’s largest Arabic group after its president called him a “professional whore” for supporting Israel.

In an exclusive interview with Sun Media from London, England, where he is to speak today at an international conference on anti-Semitism, Kenney said groups are free within legal bounds to say what they like. But groups whose leaders say intolerant or hateful things shouldn’t get taxpayer funding.

“We should not be rewarding those who express views that are contrary to Canada’s best liberal values of tolerance and mutual respect.”

*  Khaled Mouammar of the Canadian Arab Federation has a fair record of spreading some good old Arabian hate…

Intellectual Freedom in Canada: Mark Steyn "addresses" the legislative hearing on the Ontario Human Rights Commission – with a haymaker

From Post Darwinist Denyse O’Leary

*  Ezra Levant also rips defamatory ‘activist’ Andrea Calvert a new one: Michael Coren Show today

                      

* Steyn: if you are not rich or powerful, “the Ontario Human Rights regime will destroy your savings, your business, your life, for no good reason.” And:  the human right “not to be offended” should not exist in a free society. That’s the first and most basic thing that this system failed. 

 Fire. Them. All.

News Service roundup, I reported that Mark Steyn was to testify against the anti-civil rights Human Rights Commission today. I am just back, and am transcribing what he said, in sections, below. Update: Here’s a leaked transcript of the whole day (all the witnesses).

This from the earlier story:

Commentator Mark “one-man global content provider” Steyn is testifying today on the Ontario “human rights” commission (= trampling civil liberties in the name of social engineering) at the province of Ontario’s legislature (Queen’s Park), Room 155. Ontario’s commission dropped its charges against Steyn for his famous Maclean’s article, an excerpt from his book, America Alone, but issued a media release implying that he really was guilty – which gives you some idea how much it resembles a real court. As Kathy “I’m with the banned” Shaidle says, “Can’t find room 151? Just follow the buzzing sound: Steyn tends to be surrounded by a flock of ardent admirers.”

You can't tell the truth in Canuckistan either…

Longtime Ottawa radio host Lowell Green launched an ‘uninformed and unfair’ attack on the air, according to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.

“Uninformed,” yes. Those who notice Islamic jihad and the Islamic justifications made for it by its Muslim perpetrators are always “uninformed.” Those who turn a blind eye to it all are the ones who are “informed.”

* Ezra Levant: The Yuman Rites Circus in Canuckistan provides well for its proponents

                                  

“Almost every act of terrorism around the world today is carried out in the name of Islam,” responded Mr. Green. “Don’t tell me this is the work of a few fanatics.”

CALGARY – A Calgary-based company is suing the country’s largest mosque, seeking almost $4 million in bills it claims were never paid related to the mosque’s construction.

EllisDon Construction Services filed the statement of claim this month in a bid to recover $3.9 million the company claims it is owed, and another $1 million in “damages for interference with contractual and economic relations.”

EllisDon says it signed an agreement in June 2006 to build the 45,000-square-foot Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosque, completed in late August this year.

The mosque was officially opened in July with a gala reception attended by an estimated 5,000 people, including Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Naseer Ahmad, an agent of Ahmadiyya, is named as a defendant. The lawsuit claims he interfered with EllisDon’s contractual and economic interests with an intent to damage its reputation.

If the sum isn’t paid, says the claim, a builders’ lien must be placed on the mosque and property and it should be sold to pay off EllisDon.

No statement of defence has been filed and none of the allegations have been proven in court.
