The Mississauga Intifada

The Islamic jihad has now found a theatre all too close to home to fight in: the Liberal EDA in Mississauga-Erindale, where candidate Omar Algharba has declared a "victory for Islam":

On December 2, the Liberal candidate for Mississauga-Erindale, Omar Alghabra, made his victory speech after winning the nomination. In that speech, he reportedly exhorted his audience, "This is a victory for Islam! Islam won! Islam Won! ... Islamic power is extending into Canadian politics".

Alghabra's victory speech was delivered to an audience of several hundred in the Coptic Christian Centre of the Church of the Virgin Mary and St. Athanasius in Mississauga.

David Ragheb, a member of the congregation, reported that following Alghabra's victory speech, Markham Councillor Khalid Osman took to the stage and declared, "We have the east, we have the west, and now we have Mississauga!" to cheers and applause from the audience. Ragheb also reported that Rogers Cable was present throughout and may have filmed the event. "A member of parliament is supposed to represent my concerns about taxes and roads in Mississauga, not promote an Islamic agenda," said Ragheb.

Victor Fouad, a Coptic Christian, was disturbed to hear of such Islamist rhetoric from a Liberal who could easily become a Canadian parliamentarian. Mr. Fouad assumed that Paul Martin would likewise disapprove of such incitement by a Liberal candidate, and so wrote to the Prime Minister detailing what had happened. That message was ignored. The event took place over 2 weeks ago, and Paul Martin's silence since that time can only be interpreted as approval of Mr. Alghabra's rhetoric.

Had a Conservative candidate declared his nomination to be a "victory for Christianity", the media would have been howling for weeks about Stephen Harper's hidden fundamentalist theocratic hidden agenda. They do that now if a candidate who's ever been an usher at his local church gets nominated.

Yet for two weeks, they have been strangely silent about this naked declaration of religious conquest by a Liberal candidate, who admitted that his candidacy is in furtherance of Islamic political power in Canada, in a Coptic church whose adherents have endured centuries of oppression under the boot heel of their Islamic rulers.

The Liberals, through their cynical exploitation of the immigrant vote, have clasped a poisonous snake to their bosom--and to that of Canadian democracy in general.

If Paul Martin believes that a person who opposes same-sex marriage is unfit to lead, then how much more unfit is a man who has declared sympathy for a cause calling for the extinction of everyone's liberties?

No surprise then that Martin refuses to ban certain terrorist organizations. What a great country we have become! I would not be surprised if one of the Khadr swines were to run as a Liberal candidate soon.

No wonder the US is thinking about building a barrier/wall on what was the longest, unprotected border in the world.

Boy it will sure make that boat ride in Waterton that much more difficult

As well I'm surprised (actually not) that the pundits or Conservatives or MSM hasn't reported on this worsening of US/Canada relations.

I guess Martin could then show how he is getting so tough on them.

If Carolyn Parrish won handily last time, that should tell you there are a lot of Bush-haters in Mississauga already. Regardless of whether Alghabra wins or not, there will be terrorist sympathizers aplenty in Mississauga. Alghabra will probably win, but hopefully he'll end up in the opposition benches where he'll be less damaging.

I do wonder, though, now that Carolyn Parrish is almost endorsing Harper, is she still as anti-U.S. as she was before?

I'm a Muslim and most Muslims are Centre right IMO they do agree with the CP position on gay marriage. The non-fundamentalist Muslims don't really have a problem with the War on Terror or the building of democracy in Iraq. However it's a shame that fundamentalist drown out the noise of the average Muslim.

With all respect to the Canadian Centre for Democracies, I hope they did more research into the issue than looking at the comments section of a CBC election forum website.

That's where I read about this a week ago (its my riding, so I was searching for comements on it). I would suspect that part of the reason the media hasn't picked up on it is because (right now at least) its pretty obscure. A comment by some guy who claims to have heard him say something that the reporters who covered it for the Mississauga News didn't report on (media bias aside, if he said that they would have reported it--we all know bias is trumped by a scandal or scoop).

I would also hope that before we start hitching our wagon onto this "scandal" that we know it won't blow up in our faces.

Does anyone have the Rogers tape?

If not, why not?

Has any futher investigation gone into the matter, or are we just playing pile on?

Questions that people should be asking.
