No Islamophobia in Canada

Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?

Submitted by Walter (Canada), Nov 3, 2005 at 14:10

The riots in Clichy-Sous-Bois, France are making headlines around the world, including Canada. However, in Canada, one significant item is being left out of the news reports. Whether the news is on TV, radio or newspapers, the Canadian news media will not mention that the rioters are Muslims.

Since Muslims are making headlines around the world with terrorist activities, you would think that identifying the rioters in France, as Muslims would be pertinent to the news. But not in Canada. The Liberal Paul Martin government of Canada is willing to ban public school celebrations of Christmas, Easter and Valentine's day to avoid offending Muslims, ignoring over 2 hundred years of Canadian history. Surely Canadians must be wondering why, and here is the reason.

The minority Paul Martin Liberal government has been caught up in a huge scandal involving misuse of tax dollars and could be in danger of being defeated. However there is a safety net and it is called immigration. By opening doors to immigration from the Middle East, the Liberals are importing voters and securing their votes by catering to their demands even if it means changing the character of our nation. As an example note, that the Toronto is the largest city in Canada and over 50% of their population was born in another country. The desire to sustain a corrupt liberal government is so important to Paul Martin and his liberals, that their foreign policy is constructed on reviling our neighbors the Americans and cozying up to France, China and the Middle East. Even as I write, Paul Martin is strategizing on how to gain control of Alberta's huge oil reserves and market them to China instead of our neighbors, the Americans.
