Kathy Shaidle and Lost Budgie are on the hunt for proof that Mississauga-Erindale Liberal candidate Omar Alghabra's made the infamous "victory for Islam" comments.
So far, no one's been able to put those exact words in his mouth, and no one has seen footage of the Rogers Cable tape supposedly contains them.
However, it appears that Markham town councilloe Khalid Osman did take the stage and brag about Islamic power, and Alghabra did not say anything to contradict him.
The fact that this story stayed under wraps for nearly two weeks should have put our suspicions up, especially because the alleged comments were made at a Coptic Church hall. Few people have more reason to suspect or fear Islamic politicians than Coptic Christians, and such a rumour would travel fast in its community.
But if the story is verified, and Alghabra did make those remarks, it will mark the beginning of a frightening new era in Canadian politics.
And it will also show up a significant weakness in the Canadian media--a lack of knowledgable and unbiased reporting about our growing Islamic community and its radicalization.
