Gaia be gone!

From the National Post today:

A Toronto mosque is telling Muslims not to say "Happy Thanksgiving" or invite friends into their homes for turkey dinner on the holiday weekend. The Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque says to "avoid participating" in dinners, parties or greetings on Thanksgiving because it is a kuffaar, or non-Muslim, celebration. A two-part article on the mosque Web site says Muslims should also "stay completely away" from "Halloween trick-and treat nonsense," Christmas, New Year's, anniversaries, birthdays and Earth Day.

Well, at least they got the Earth Day part right.

Are these "Canadian" Muslims going to celebrate Canada Day? Or is that equally for bidden in their new country?

Yeah, multiculturalism!

Glad to see the misogynistic 6th century monsters are integrating into the Canadian mosaic, oh wait they are…….

And to think this country tries to accommodate these losers.

This is a prime example of a mosque where jihadism is being taught and preached and needs to be shut down.

If only the people of Ontario could show the same guts they did when they refused to implement sharia law a few years back. I know it's asking a lot but maybe - just maybe - lightning can strike twice.

All the more reason for Alberta and others to make a pre-emptive stand against islamofascism.

Lack of integration should be included in a comprehensive law for immigrants and a valid reason for refusal of citizenship and a good reason to send them back to their country of origin.

Let's consider these matters very seriously.

Muslims celebrate weddings.
Since weddings existed before Islam, weddings must be kuffar too.
Don't damage your deen by celebrating weddings, eh Muslims.

As to Thanksgiving, it isn't a stretch to see that Muslims aren't among the most thankful(grateful) people.

I've always wondered about atheists though.
Just who are they thanking, themselves?

Iran won't celebrate any of those things. Muslims should be encouraged to emigrate to their holy theocratic state where their tender sensibilities aren't offended. Sunni Muslims can go to Saudi Arabia, it's just as backwards as Iran - and they have DisneyMecca in Saudi!

And for all those still opposed to the West taking out Iran this year:

"Iran Could Strike U.S. by 2015, U.S. Officials Say"

WASHINGTON — Iranian technology is on pace to build a long-range missile that could strike the United States within a decade, a high-level Pentagon official told FOX News.

But a successful test of a missile defense program completed last week is giving military leaders more confidence that an airborne attack from Iran can be thwarted — if the United States is able to convince Europe to go along with the plans to build an anti-missile system there against strong Russian opposition.

"Most of the intelligence experts predict that sometime before 2015, or in that time frame, the Iranians will have developed the capabilities to threaten the United States, from a missile technology perspective, "Lt. Gen. Henry Obering, chief of the U.S. missile defense program, said Tuesday in a Pentagon interview with FOX News. Of concern Obering said is Iran's ability to take shorter range technology and improving it to longer and longer ranges.

Like my bumper sticker says:

It is clear now that Ontario's rejection of sharia law was a genuine fluke. They will now roll over and accept alien ways into their society, thereby allowing them to spread all over North America. For the love of the human race and human rights, stop Ontarians from leaving their land.

Posted by: Zebulon Pike | 2007-10-03 2:19:21 PM

Now if Canada would just stay away from all Muslim things, the bigots they in fact are, this country might be saved.

Start by reversing immigration, like starting emigration, for the hateful anti-Canadian, anti-western, seditious ingrates in our midst.

Posted by: Sounder | 2007-10-03 2:33:15 PM


They have the same thread topic at LGF and they're making the same mistake that you are, except they're blaming all of Canada.

Get it straight.
This a a particular mosque telling it's congregation a set of dos and don'ts, this isn't 'all of Ontario'.
I wouldn't be surprised if all the mosques in Calgary were telling their people the same thing.

At heart, Islam is a cultural ideological vehicle to spread the desert Arabian culture of the 7th century. They are protecting this culture just like French Quebecers do, by minimizing and refusing to participate in aspects of the wider Canadian culture.

Islam says that Allah has deemed that all men of a certain maturity must wear beards.
I guess Allah forgot he created certain races of men that cannot grow beards.
(North American Indians come to mind)

While much of the reasonable/unreasonable debate has been in QC, it is moving into Ontario as well and people there are beginning to realize that this debate is going to happen - sooner, than probably later. If the silent majority continues remaining quiet, the writing will soon be on the wall - if it is not already.

AB has been quietly rolling over re accommodation in small increments for years - particularly in the last 10 years or so. The mentality of "it's not nice to challenge" combined with the Litigation Chill of being taken into Human Rights Tribunal is doing just what the imam of this particular mosque is trying to accomplish. Unfortunately it is working all to well in places where it counts - mosques, schools, and the workplace.

This sign,for example, in a Bank of Montreal located in one of the major shopping malls in SW Calgary - about 12" x 12" printed on a nice, blue plastic backdrop located on a pillar in view of customers lining up for the tellers.

We have staff available to serve you in the following languages:
English (was in a little larger lettering)

That is it. No mention of French and no mention of Chinese (the third largest linguistic group after English/French)

I had a chat with the customer service person about the lack of French - probably a middle manager who was filling in over the noon hour. The reaction was oh - we have French people available and then she had nothing more to say.

I'm certainly no fan of Official Bilingualism, particularly in Ab. However, if a major corporation chooses to promote other linguistic groups and ignores one of the official languages, it strikes me as a very significant error in corporate judgment. It also speaks volumes about creeping unreasonable accommodation and how it is being catered to.

Clipper, It's all about market share and nothing else. I don't believe for a minute they are accomodating others for altruistic reasons.
It'strictly business.

So the Muslims say that Mohammad received his revelations from Allah in a cave somewhere. That's it? Nothing more? Some rich merchant says he heard from God and now he's got a religion? What were they on when they heard that?

Jesus at least performed some miracles. He had to demonstrate his abilities before people would follow him. He worked for his flock, proving himself and the truth of his message. Christianity had to endure some rigorous critical method before people would accept it. And guess what, it worked! Hooray for humanity.

That child molesting Arab probably made it all up in his head. Of course as the great "true" prophet of our time has said, "Who's the more foolish: The fool, or the fool who follows him?" It is, of course, Obi-wan Kenobi.

It looks more and more like Scientology is a superior religion to Islam. At least its people know its founder was nuts.

Posted by: Zebulon Pike | 2007-10-03 9:39:39 PM

Ho,Ho! Zeb. Maybe Salman Rushdi had the right take on things. There are other "prophets" who had a zany and moronic take on things but they are not seen as dangerous as the people who follow that child molesting arab.

Posted by: DML | 2007-10-03 9:59:59 PM

I think im gonna disagree with most of you. I think its a shame that some Muslims are segregating themselves, but isn't it also their right to choose not to participate? Sadly, I think they are the ones loosing out.

Posted by: whelansm | 4-Oct-07 2:05:47 AM

I wish they would lose out on my taxes to pay for their interloping in our society.

Last paragraph of the NaPo article:
>"The mosque is run by a federally registered charity. Rival factions within the Somali Muslim community are fighting in court for control of the charity."

Just the kind of new Canadian citizens we need.
They want our money but have contempt for our way of life.

Hey, Leftoids! Raed this and tell me how yoy support Muslims:

"Men get 7000 lashes for sodomy"

TWO men in Saudi Arabia have been sentenced to 7,000 lashes each after being convicted of sodomy and have received their first round of punishment in public, a newspaper said today.

The men, who were not identified, were meted out an unspecified number of lashes in public in the the southwestern city of Al-Bahah on Tuesday evening, the Al-Okaz daily reported.

They were then returned to prison where they are to be held until the full punishment is completed, the newspaper added, without saying how many sessions this would involve.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Saudi Arabia, which metes out strict punishment based on sharia, or Islamic law.

Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking can all carry the death penalty in the kingdom, with public beheading the common form of execution.

talk to me when the JWs, Church of God, or any other sectarian and heretical Christian group has an idea like Jihad at it's core.

It is the adherents of Islam who are the bigots.

Somalia has a young population; over 3.4 million of its 7.2 million people are under the age of 15. Life expectancy is 49 years. All Muslim children, by law have to attend Islam classes in school, even if in private Christian missionary schools.

The country has an entirely Muslim population and in some areas Shari'a law is implemented. Church properties were nationalized and missionaries expelled in the 1970s. Existing churches are permitted by the government so long as do not evangelize Muslims.

"In February 2003 a radical Somali Islamist group, Kulanka Culimada, based in Mogadishu issued a press release in which they called for all Somali Christians to be treated as apostates from Islam who ought to be killed. This was in response to a bold move by the tiny persecuted Christian community in Somalia that had sent several delegates to peace talks currently being held in Nairobi (initiated in 2002) to demand the right of freedom of religion and assembly, political representation, and free movement. The Christian representatives were shouted down by Muslim delegates who insisted Somalia had no Christians and who declared Islam to be the official religion of Somalia. This seems to mirror prejudices widely held by Muslim Somalis which justify violence against Christians, both indigenous and expatriate. . . ."

The devil really needs no advocate.
He's doing just fine on his own.

Posted by: Speller | 2007-10-04 11:00:09 AM

It's easier to hate and kill people if you remain separate from them and treat them as 'The Other'.

By the way here is a little info about the guy these Somalis named there mosques after:

Khālid ibn al-Walīd (592-642) (Arabic: خالد بن الوليد) also known as Sayf-Allah al-Maslul (the Drawn Sword of God or Sword of Allah), was one of the two famous Arab generals of the Rashidun army during the Muslim conquests of the 7th Century.

During the Al-Yarmuk Battle, a man told Khalid bin-al-Walid: "The Byzantine soldiers are too many and the Muslims are few."

So, Khalid told him: "Shame on you. Armies do not triumph with large numbers but are defeated if the spirit of defeatism prevails."

Keep this saying before your eyes: "It is not fitting for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he hath thoroughly subdued the land."

"Therefore, when ye meet the unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks."

Your wish to the crusaders should be as came in this verse of poetry: "The only language between you and us is the sword that will strike your necks."

Befor Mo came along and organized these clowns, they worshipped the Moon god Al Ala, amoung others, at the Ka'ba or Big Black Rock in Mecca. What has changed? They circled the rock 7 times and chucked stones at the devil before even gettin' unionized by Mo and nothing has changed since. They pay union dues too, as a percentage of their earnings to their mosque. Sound familiar?

Posted by: jt | 2007-10-04 4:44:30 PM


Before Mo cam along, these "clowns" worshiped a whole bunch of gods not just once. As for them not changing at all, that would be debatable to say at the very least. And about their "union dues":

a.) it doesn't go to their mosques
b.) It's not based on their earnings

As for the "somalis" having their own mosque, doesn't that go against the Islamic principle of no nationalism. Anyways, I don't really have a problem with these "clowns" not eating turkey with me. It's when they started to blow themselves up in a crowded areas which really ticked me off.

...i also received a big revelation in a cave too. She was...


umm, skip it.

Islam is NOT, never WAS, and never WILL BE compatible with Western Judeo-Christian culture and civilization. It is a cult that has kept the middle-east in the 7th century for the past 1400 years.

Muslims are not here to enjoy and become a part of our societies. It is here to destroy and take over our culture and way of life. We need to stop promoting this death-cult as "The Religion of Peace" which it is NOT, now or at anytime in it's history, and by all appearances, never will be!

Posted by: cdn.infidel | 2007-10-05 9:46:06 AM

May we try to be realistic about this please? The fact is that we, in every Western country, have accepted a large number of Muslims. Yes, we can argue that it should not have happened, but fact is that it did. I do not see any Western country with the will to deport every Muslim living there.

Personally I am willing to give the arguments of Walid Phares (author of "The War of Ideas") a chance. He maintains that jihad is not a pillar of Islam and that the ideology of Jihadism/Islamism is a product of the 20th century. He traces its beginning to the present day, giving examples of how this imperialist totalitarian ideology continues to spread throughout the world, Muslim and non-Muslim. Muslims disagreeing are simply murdered and this practice has extended to the West. By not correctly identifying the enemy we choose defeat. Once identified, then measures can be taken to weed out the jihadists. He is especially adamant that this has nothing to do with poverty, foreign policy or whatever.

Yet we continue to allow the enemy to hide behind the veil of Islam, to tolerate their preaching and indoctrination, to give in to their demands. Worse we have a sufficient number asking why do they hate us and stating that we (our culture) is to blame.

When citizens (especially in Europe) understand the threat contrary to their authorities and try to speak out, they are harassed and arrested by their authorities for "hate speech". In North America we stand a better chance having a smaller number of Muslims, but for how long this will be the case one can only wonder with our authorities (and MSM) remaining in denial.

"We need to stop promoting this death-cult as "The Religion of Peace" which it is NOT"

Of course not! It is the Religion of Pieces = judging by the many body parts that remain wherever they go crazy.
