Don’t Worry about ‘Islamophobia’ Law, Says Muslim Brotherhood-Linked Canadian Spokesman
by Pamela Geller, The American Thinker:
As the Canadian Parliament prepares to adopt a motion condemning “Islamophobia,” the Canadian media have shifted into high-gear propaganda mode to smear all opposition to this anti-free speech measure as hysterical. Leading the charge in the Toronto Star is Faisal Kutty, who teaches law at Valparaiso University Law School in Indiana and Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto and has numerous ties to groups linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Kutty leads off by scapegoating me as the “lunatic fringe” opposing this thought-crushing measure:
“Canadian PM, Justin Trudeau, Smears all Canadians with Islamophobia Lie to Create a Sharia State,” tweeted notorious American Islamophobe Pamela Geller, in reference to M103, a motion debated in Parliament this week.
Unfortunately, such views are not restricted to the lunatic fringe. Several Conservative leadership hopefuls have bought into the “moral panic,” only confirming the importance of the motion. Kellie Leitch, Chris Alexander, Brad Trost and Pierre Lemieux even spoke at a Rebel Media event, which according to organizers, was to oppose “Islamic blasphemy laws” in Canada. Speakers warned that the government planned to silence critics of Islam.
That is obviously exactly what the government plans to do. Interim Conservative leader Rona Ambrose said she was concerned that charges of “Islamophobia” would be used “to intimidate rather than to inform.” Ambrose added: “I do worry that some of my work trying to empower women and girls in Muslim communities could be branded as ‘Islamophobic’ if I criticize practices that I believe are oppressive.”
