Canada Set to Prosecute Christians, But Give Murderous Islamists Slap on Wrist


A Canadian mosque known as the Ottawa Islamic Centre and Assalam Mosque recently lost its charitable status, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

The reason? An audit conducted by the Canada Revenue Agency looking into various speakers the mosque invited in 2012 and 2013 turned up some some unsavory characters making inflammatory comments.

According to the report, one of the more unscrupulous people who spoke at the mosque was Abu Usamah At-thahabi.

What was actually spoken inside the mosque was not recorded, but the audit noted a series of statements At-thahabi made that were recorded in “an undercover 2007 report by Britain’s Channel 4,” according to the Citizen. (At-thababi and his followers, as well as some British authorities, claimed their quotes were taken out of context for that report. But the documentary makers stood by it.)

His disparaging remarks covered a wide range of topics, from general hatred of non-Muslims to intellectually “deficient” women to gays.

“No one loves the kuffar,” At-thahabi said, according to the Citizen, using an Arabic term for non-Muslims. “Not a single person here from the Muslims loves the kuffar, whether those kuffars are from the UK or from the U.S. We love the people of lslam and we hate the people of kuffar.”

He also called women “deficient.”

“Allah has created women deficient. Even if she gets a Ph.D. Deficient. Her intellect is incomplete,” he said, according to the report.

Some of his sharper words were reserved for homosexuals.

“Take that homosexual man and throw him off the mountain,” At-thahabi said in the report, according to the Citizen.

The Citizen also quoted from a video of At-thahabi available on YouTube.

“But even greater than that is the zina (adultery) of homosexuality and the zina of lesbianism. The prophet said, ‘Kill the one who does it and the one who it’s being done to. Kill the one who was on top and the one who was on the bottom, whether it’s a man or a woman.’”

Other people were mentioned in the report, from trying to recruit and radicalize terrorists to other forms of vile hatred.

But let’s stick with Canada’s response to the mosque: Yes, losing one’s charitable status is not good. But the mosque can continue to exist, unabated for the most part.

But how is it that, while the mosque essentially gets a slap on the wrist for hosting speakers with a history of some pretty reprehensible comments (and no reason to think they weren’t repeated at the mosque), the Canadian Supreme Court virtually threatened Christian activists with jail time back in 2013?

The Canadian Supreme Court ruled in 2013 that a Christian preaching against homosexuality, even based on the contexts of the Bible, could be construed as hate speech. That is punishable with jail time.

So, Canada basically seems to be saying that if Christians have the audacity to cite their religious texts and disagree with homosexuality, they can go to jail.

But if Islamists host speakers with a history of citing their religious texts to promote actual violence and death against homosexuals, they simply lose their tax status.

As a free speech issue, both the mosque and the Christian church should operate without interference from the government, yet the Canadian government approves of sanctioning Christians with the possibility of prison, yet treats the arguably more murderous statements of militant Islam with wrist-slap severity.

Yeah, that makes sense.
