Dithers Meets The Imams

Paul Martin met with a group of imams yesterday in Toronto and praised them for making a public statement denouncing terrorism, a day late and a dollar short though it was.

What the media has not asked is the question that it should be asking: what did Martin promise them in return during the meeting?

Had he met with the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops or a group of leading evangelical Protestant ministers over any other issue, the press would have been screaming about mixing religion with politics.

But never with Islam. Never, never, with Islam.

Glad I'm not the only one that picked up on that little double standard.

Which brings about a different angle on the question of profiling.

If white Catholics or evangelical Protestants were blowing up cafes, buses, tube carriages, etc. all over the world -- basically wherever they set up a church -- do you think the liberals of the land would have a problem profiling them/us???

Don't forget Sikhism, Hinduism or the various aboriginal faiths. Liberals don't mind indulging them.
