Speaking of caving into Muslim demands...

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Another aspect of the Muslim taxicab drivers' demands is that it's "non-violent" (I suspect that anyone other than a Muslim would just be fired or face reprimands.) Yet their demands are met. It's as if every non-Muslim is already a Dhimmi.

And about the Dhimmis in Canada...the city in which I live will soon have a conference on "peace." (something for the Islamist Watch site to take note of?) According to an editorial published on Tuesday, Oct 10, 2006, the conference will have an "impressive" line-up of speakers (invites from around the world.) Among the notable persons mentioned who will be speaking on "peace"? Well, of course, that delightful homosexual Dhimmi -- James Loney of the Christian Peacemakers (Loney is the fellow who was kidnapped and held hostage for four months in Iraq and when rescued by U.S. armed forces had nothing but nasty things to say about the military.)

Also according to the editorial, the conference intends to engage "moderates" from all religions -- and "to find common ground" (yes, that's how we can all lay the blame for "the violence" at the feet of the U.S. and Israel and all sob uncontrolably at the thought of poor Muslims no longer able to endure the ongoing western oppression -- o the humiliation -- and thus heroically blow themselves up..or "why mass murdering suicide bombers should be celebrated".) Thus the editorialist writes: "..Frederic Mayor Zaragoza, a former director general of UNESCO will discuss his work at the United Nations which had declared 2000 to 2010 the decade of the culture of peace. That work was knocked off track by the post 9/11 war on terror." Yes, that's right -- blame the U.S.'s "war on terror" -- it's all about the Great Satan (not to mention the little Satan).

Then we have a fellow named Roche ("formerly Canada's diosarmament ambassador at the United Nations") who'll also be giving a speech at the converence and who (according to the editorial) wants religious leaders "to make stronger connections with the secular human rights movement." Indeed. I guess that would mean a greater engagement with such legal scholars and "human" rights activists as currently employed by pro-Islamist organzations as Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch (the ones who're always crying for dead Arab "martyrs.") Oh, and while we're all sorrowfully musing over the plight of Arab terrorists -- I hear that M. Arar (the fellow who was deported to Syria and whipped with electrical wire) is now suing the Canadian government for a mere 400 million dollars. hmmm....I wonder what would happen if every victim of terrorist attacks were to sue S. Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia, etc., for half that amount -- a mere 200 million per incident -- where would all those rich Saudi and Pakistani sheiks and Imams be then? barefoot and penniless...but then, that would be to expect justice in this world... Instead we'll have Canadian taxpayers footing the bill for Syrian torturers.

Submitting....
