Italian Imam Guilty of Terrorism Links

An Islamic cleric who preaches hate at his mosque in Milan has been found convicted on terror charges by an Italian court:

This type of punishment can happen when Imams preach hatred and encourage the muslims to go on Jihad in free western countries.

The above post is a prime example why this blog,Macleans,etc is under attack by Mr.Sohawardy and his ilk.This news is not welcome to them. Peeking under the veil of islam and exposing the evil that lurks, runs counter to their claims of being a religion of peace. Good for you, Winston.

At least last week the US Congress effectively proclaimed Jesus Christ to be our national savior!

Posting the same message 3 times on 3 threads still does not equate the cult of Islamofascism with Christianity.

Nice try in attempting to say that both of these religions are equally "evil" when only one is clearly so.

But I guess moral relativism is the sacrament in your secular-progressive religion.

ٌWallyj, I'd like the counter-terrorism institutions of Canada such as CSIS, RCMP and others check the backgrounds of every Imam & Islamic cleric who want to have religious sermons here. We need to know who is who!

Mohamed is now becoming the most popular name for new born boys in the UK.

But of course we never have such Muslim clerics in Canada. It is good to know that here they only preach love and tolerance.

Can we lodge a complaint with the Italian Human Rights Commission?

He will be sent to prison and forced to drink bad wine, stale cheese and wear second hand Gucci's. Such is the state of socialist Italy. Oh yeah, Muslims don't drink. More prosciutto for the others too.

That would be great! And then we could hang "Big Brother is Watching You" signs in every neighbourhood, with guards to check what we're up to (you know, just in case there could be terrorists around), and we could spend our nights sitting around wondering why everyone used to think religious freedom and civil liberties were such a big deal.

Don't be absurd - this is Canada, and here you are innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around. If we're willing to give up stuff like that, we're going to lose the moral high ground over countries where those same freedoms are nothing but a sham if there's even an appearance of them and over the people who would perpetuate those systems very, very quickly.

"we're going to lose the moral high ground"

. . . and possibly many innocent lives to boot.

Seeing how so much Islamic terrorism is cult inspired (I refuse to call this adulterous death cult a religion because that shames all other religions), I think it is imperatative that CSIS operatives spy on mosques and imams. This is where it all starts. Hopefully, CSIS already has this under control but given their Air India fiasco, who knows.

This "thin edge of the wedge" stuff is nonsense. "Authorities" have ALWAYS been able to monitor phone calls, sat-track movements and basically violate any and all forms of privacy you think you have. Right to privacy is a sham, a facade meant only to comfort and placate us.

US Attorney General Robert Kennedy tapped the phone of Martin Luther King - but Leftoids never thought less of that DemoRat because of it.

I wonder who was tapping the phones of their assassins?

As if Italy is the exception!

"Belgium Arrests 14 in Terror Probe"

al-Associated Press

BRUSSELS, Belgium - Fourteen Muslim extremists were detained Friday on allegations they sought to free an al-Qaida sympathizer imprisoned for planning a terrorist attack on U.S. air base personnel, Belgian authorities said.

Security was heightened across the capital, at airports and subway stations out of precaution, officials said.

"Other acts of violence are not to be excluded," Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt said. He said authorities had "elements of information which point to the preparation of an attack."

Lieve Pellens, spokeswoman of the federal prosecutor's office, said security also was being stepped up at Christmas markets.

AND IN PAKISTAN TODAY, Muslims bombed a mosque, killing dozens. I hope no Korans were damaged in the explosion - or we might have street protests world-wide!

Janet, any body applying for a job may go through the famous scrutiny called "Police Background Check". Those Imams who want to work here should not be an exception. Otherwise we're going to be discriminating against them and by-passing the law is not good.

But the War on Christmas is one that Leftoids ARE willing to wage:

What would Ray Evans think of the Elmdale Public School teachers -- in their political correctness gone idiotic -- having the gall to gratuitously expunge the horrible C word in favour of "festive" in his classic, hugely popular Christmas song Silver Bells that was to have been sung by the pupils in the school concert last night before the teachers chickened out in the onslaught of public protest and replaced it with the already
Christmas-word-sanitized Frosty The Snowman.


And as the article points out, both writers of the song were Jewish.

Don't these courts realize that jihad is "an inner struggle"? Oh the injustice...(SARCASM OFF)

Elmdale school was besieged with phone calls and emails from parents protesting this nonsense. Yet they still stuck to their politically correct idiocy.

We will see if their school board will be "politically corrected" next election.

Here's another religion that is "offended" with a different reaction, of course:

"Hindus protest use of gods on underwear by US firm"

New Delhi - India's eastern state of Orissa has lodged a protest with the US government seeking action against a California-based website for hurting religious sentiments of people by selling undergarments with images of Hindu gods, a newspaper reported Friday. Hindu priests and religious groups had slammed the website, cafepress.com, for selling undergarments embellished with faces of several gods and goddesses, including the presiding deities of Jagannath temple, considered among the most sacred Hindu temples in India.

Besides writing to the US embassy in New Delhi, the state authorities also wrote to the federal Home Minister Shivraj Patil urging him to take up the issue with the US government, the Times of India daily reported.

"I, on the behalf of the government of Orissa, request you to take up the issue with the American governemnt for taking action against the website owner to refrain the company from such unholy activities," Orissa's law minister BB Harichandan said in his letter.

STRANGELY ENOUGH, they have not issued death threats against the CEO of this company - and they are not brandishing weapons in the streets, chanting: "Death To America!"
