Reader comment on item: Merkel's Historic Folly

Submitted by Dean (Canada), Aug 23, 2017 at 08:59

I just want to add one more thing about how far we have gone to appease in Canada. Christine Douglass-Williams, a noted broadcaster, writer and scholar and a board member with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, is now being threatened with expulsion from that Board for writing articles about radial Islam in certain publications which the social justice warriors and their co-conspirator Muslim groups in Canada deem to be against their agenda of supporting the most extreme and sidelining the most reform branches of Islam - Christine has been a long-time advocate and believer in empowering reform-minded Muslims but the leftists have a love affair with the most extreme. Please speak up on Christine's behalf by writing to the following:

hon.melanie.joly@canada.ca
chair.crrf@telus.net
justin.trudeau@parl.gc.ca

Daniel Pipes replies:

Good idea. I followed you suggestion and wrote this letter to Joly and the CRRF chair:

Dear Ms Joly:

I write to express my dismay that you would consider dropping Ms Douglass-Williams from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation board for reasons connected to her views on Islam and related topics.

As the author of a foreword to her very recent book, The Challenge of Modernizing Islam: Reformers Speak Out and The Obstacles They Face, I can assure you that she scrupulously distinguishes between Muslims who uphold Western values and those who are totalitarian.

She is a sophisticated observer of this issue whose knowledge and connections should be of particular value to the foundation - not the reason to force her off the board. Doing to would tarnish CRRF's reputation. I urge you not to.

Yours sincerely,

Hon. Daniel Pipes
President
Middle East Forum

(My "Hon." was in response to her e-mail address.) To which, I got the following response:

Thank you for writing to the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage.

The Minister is always pleased to hear the comments of Canadians on subjects of importance to them. Your email will be read with care.
