Tarek Fatah calls Mounties "useful idiots"

If you’re not familiar with Tarek Fatah, you can check him out here>>

Mounties on the job

Actually, he’s got a point: ever heard of a case where police would call a meeting of Christian leaders to apologize for arresting someone on Christmas Day?

Mounties apologized for Ramadan terror arrests

Outreach to Muslims following the arrests is being criticized by some Muslim Canadians as blind pandering.

Ahmadinejad loves it. Cracks down on “Hardline Proseletyzers“. Wonder if the Revolutionary Guards will apologize like our Mounties?

OTTAWA – As RCMP investigators searched through homes, computers and the seized equipment of three terror suspects arrested at the end of August, the RCMP’s community outreach office in Ottawa was calling an emergency meeting of the cultural diversity consultative committee to apologize to local Muslims.

The struggle against jihad

While Muslim parents pack public meetings with pronouncements that ‘Islam is a religion of peace,’ their sons and daughters are being taught something else.

In the ME, they  openly celebrate mass-murder:

The US Islamophilic President and the Fundamentalist “Palestinian” Islamic leadership talk ‘peace’ while adherents carry out acts of jihad, cruelty barbarity, and murder. (hat tip Atlas Shrugs)

The Muslims are celebrating the coldblooded murder of four five Jewish civilians: Islamic Antisemitism and Jewish Genocide: The Funeral

BY TAREK FATAH AND SALMA SIDDIQUI/Ottawa Citizen

Relatives and supporters of men charged with planning terrorist attacks in the Toronto area arrive for a bail hearing in 2006. Community leaders often decry bad ‘behaviour’ and denounce ‘terrorism,’ but fail to take on the jihadist ideology that is poisoning Muslim youth.

An update from this: ‘Backlash’- Religion of Non-cooperation Circles the Wagons

No sooner did news of the Ottawa Terror Plot unfold on national TV, than one could predict the response of Canada’s Islamists and their organizations.

Across Canada, apologists of the terror suspects repeated the same mantra. The three men arrested were portrayed as “innocent” and the wider Muslim community was positioned as the real victims of the episode. It was as if the Islamist leadership had dusted off the speaking notes from the days of the Toronto 18 trials when leader after leader stood up to claim the young men arrested were framed, not real terrorists.

As Muslim Canadians, both of us, while asking for the due judicial process to take its course, had no hesitation in condemning the rising tide of jihadi radicalism that is sweeping like a contagious disease among Muslim youth, especially of Pakistani ancestry, across Canada. However, by and large the leadership of traditional Islamist organizations and the mosque establishment repeated the now tired and cliché-ridden depiction of Muslims as the real victims.

Still, more lies & denial from Tarek Fatah

Did Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, rape a nine-year old girl called Aisha?

You bet he did. But Tarek Fatah still goes to any length to  smear Wafa Sultan and blames it all on “anti-Muslim hatred”

Read it and weep

(Update: I posted the whole article below because I’m afraid he might realize how ridiculous he makes himself look.  So before he changes it or takes it off altogether…../ed)

2nd update:

Hugh Fitzgerald comments:

Tarek Fatah exhibits curious symptoms, as in his incredible rant and misreporting on Wafa Sultan, or in his rants, and ‘ve heard about one incident at a gathering in Washington where he started it seems, to yell about something, having nothing to do with what panel members at the time were discussing. The constant tension of knowing what Islam is, and yet of not being able to bring yourself to admit to it, for then what do you do, how do you stand yourself in relationto Islam, and the worry that others will always be challenging this, will find you out, and expose the falsity of certain statements, and the effort to protect Islam itself by laying blame for its misinterpretation or its mis-use or its mis-something on “the Arabs” and on an “Arab Islam” that is only referred to and never defined – well, it could drive someone bonkers, or at least intermittently so, couldn’t it?

Mark Steyn: was she asking for it?

Kathy Shaidle: I guess I gotta write about this &%$#ing thing

Tarek Fatah Smears Wafa Sultan update:

Now, “Islam Expert” Licia Corbella of The Calgary Herald has weighed in, as follows:

Recently, Tarek Fatah wrote a column that condemned former Muslim, Wafa Sultan, who gave a speech recently at a Toronto synagogue. During the speech, Sultan, Syrian-American and author of A God Who Hates, said the Prophet Muhammad raped Aisha, one of his wives when she was nine and he was 54. Evidence makes it clear that this is not true.

Really? What evidence? All the earliest accounts state that Aisha was six or seven when she was married to Mohammed, and nine when the marriage was consummated. The exception is the biography of the Prophet written by Ibn Ishaq (died circa 761) and edited by Ibn Hisham (died 833), which states that Aisha was ten when the marriage was consummated. Other than that, the age is not a matter of serious dispute. More from Mark Steyn

Fitzgerald: The Michael Coren Show: “Those Sikh Terrorists Who Allowed The Tamil Tigers” (Part II of III)

We are now ready to continue with our discussion of The Michael Coren show, Part 2. Please take the time, once again, to watch both segments.

Part 1 is here. Part 2 is above. And my discussion of Part 1 is here. (Jihad Watch, of course)

Muslims: Let’s just be honest. Please.

The Muslim speaker is claiming that there was only one source for Muhammad’s marrigae to the six year old Aisha. This is similar to the claim that Jihad had nothing to do with holy war ~ and that it was all about inner peace ~ that has since been put to rest.

Here is little Aisha in her own words:

‘A’ishah said : I used to play with dolls. Sometimes the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) entered upon me when the girls were with me. When he came in, they went out, and when he went out, they came in.” Sunan Abu Dawud vol.3 no.4913 p.1373

The hathiths point to Muhammad going after another child of the age of 2, but died before he could get his hands on the child….

Ali Sina: The Myth of Moderate Islam

In Defense of Wafa Sultan

The formidable Ali Sina rips the slick taqiyya spinmeister Tarek Fatah a new one:

Cross posted on Jihad Watch:

Further weakening the great myth of a moderate Islam, the slick and self-proclaimed moderate Muslim Tarek Fatah has now exposed himself as an enemy of those who are truly interested in defending human rights against the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. He did so by savaging the courageous freedom fighter Wafa Sultan in a National Post article here.

Abu Hamza: moderately radical or just the real deal?

Luckily, the Post was decent enough to publish this magnificent response: “Counterpoint: In defence of Wafa Sultan,” by Joanne Hill in the National Post

Read it all, and read the comments at the National Post piece also. And then consult the Islamic source here.

The formidable Ali Sina weighs in here:

Exposing the Myth of Moderate Islam

I have always maintained that “moderate Muslim” is an oxymoron. We have two kinds of Muslims: Terrorist Muslims and ignorant Muslims.  The former are those who know Islam well and live by its dictums. The latter have no clue about their religion and have an idealized image of Islam that has no bases in facts.

Mr. Tarek Fatah’s editorial published in National Post on March 12, 2010 confirms my view.  Fatah attended a debate between Dr. Wafa Sultan, the courageous ex-Muslim woman that shook the Arab world when in an Aljazeera televised debate she pointed out that the problem with the Muslim world is Islam, and Dr. Daniel Pipes, a scholar of Islamic history and the director of the Middle East Forum.

In this debate Pipes argued that Islam is not essentially an intolerant religion and that there have been instances when Jews who were persecuted in Christian countries had sought refuge in Muslim lands. Sultan disagreed and reminded her audience that Muhammad had raided several Jewish tribes who lived in Arabia, massacred their unarmed men and allowed his marauding band to rape their women, while always reserving the prettiest for himself.

Upon hearing these comments, Fatah was “traumatized”.  “Even a hardened secular Muslim such as myself was deeply hurt by what I heard that evening,” wrote Fatah.

Tarek Fatah Calls Wafa Sultan an ‘Islamophobe’

Tarek Fatah attended that Daniel Pipes/Wafa Sultan debate at a Toronto synagogue, and was horrified by Sultan’s words:

Read it here on Scaramouche

The rebuttal is here, in the National Post:

Counterpoint: In defence of Wafa Sultan

By Joanne Hill

Tarek Fatah has used the National Post to present a one-sided, inaccurate and potentially dangerous editorial about statements made by Dr. Wafa Sultan during her March 3rd debate in Toronto with Dr. Daniel Pipes.

Mr. Fatah’s article is not an unbiased report:  it is an opinion piece full of loaded terms such as slur, attack, hateful, anguish, Islam haters and vitriol.  He misquotes Dr. Sultan and presents as fact a conclusion that is not supported by any of her statements:  a conclusion that I believe puts her life in danger.

I am a freelance reporter; I covered the debate between Dr. Pipes and Dr. Sultan for the Jewish Tribune. I have an audio recording of the entire event, including the Question and Answer period, so I can state with complete accuracy what was and was not said by Dr. Sultan.

Wafa Sultan would not have any of that. “There is no moderate Islam,” she wagged her finger at Pipes. There was only one Islam, she claimed– the Islam of rape, murder and hate.

To his credit — and this will surprise many of his Muslim naysayers —Daniel Pipes reminded his Jewish audience that Islam was not the bogeyman it has been made out to be. “Remember, for over 1,000 years, whenever Jews needed a place for sanctuary, they got it in Muslim lands … The problem is not Islam, it is Islamism,” he told them. Not. There is no “Islamism”. There is only Islam…..

Allow me to address this point:

This is BS, doctor Pipes. I’ll tell you why: The Myth of Islamic Asylum Generosity is just a myth:

Yusuf Ali

9:6:Quran- translation If one amongst the Pagans ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah. and then escort him to where he can be secure. That is because they are men without knowledge.

Got it? Give the Pagan asylum to hear the word of Allah. If he doesn’t accept Islam, make him pay the jiziya. And if he doesn’t pay the jiziya, fight him, kill him, take booty, rape his wife and sell his children into slavery….. that’s the reason why there are no Jews left in the dar-ul Islam….

No. Thanks,  but no thanks.

Silence! I Kill You!

Deathly silence over jihad

Canadian muslims fail to denounce recent terrorist attacks

Hmm, why would that be?

TAREK FATAH, Freelance

It is almost two weeks since jihadi Islamists carried out a terrorist attack in Indonesia, causing many casualties, including injuries to two Canadians. The dust had barely settled when on Sunday other jihadis half a world away struck with a vengeance and barbarity that shocked the world. This time, their playground was the Muslim-dominated parts of northern Nigeria. More than 100 people have been killed, and the fighting is reportedly continuing.

One would expect Canadian and U.S. Islamic groups to come out with the usual denunciations but, surprisingly, even clichéd condemnations failed to materialize. In the past, Canadian Islamic groups have issued statements about “Islam being a religion of peace” and that “terrorists do not speak for Islam,” but not this time.

Compare this silence with the brouhaha over the July 1 stabbing in Germany of a single hijabi-wearing Egyptian. It triggered demonstrations. The executive director of the Canadian Islamic Congress denounced the media for their supposed silence. He said if the woman’s killer had been a Muslim, “The media would’ve reported it widely. Then for days afterward, they would deliberate the case and conclude that Muslims are ‘brutal and uncivilized.’ But when a racist European murders an innocent woman, the silence is deafening.”

Australia’s  resident Islamo-shyster  Yusuf Irfan was so enraged by this that he put up an extra blogpost wondering  “How Bolt and Blair might spin this murdered woman’s story …”-

But from his writing its hard to know what bothers him more: the murder  of the litigatious muslimah  or the  “white-skinned European man”who killed her.  (When Muslims kill Muslims, or when Muslims kill infidels, its a non-event/ed)
