The democratic process is a tool to further the Islamic agenda.

Pigfoot ..... you are correct in regards to Islam's violent history but I do believe that Islamic tactics are beginning to change. Moslems are branching out by emigrating to the free world for one reason and one reason only and ..... it is not to assimilate. It is to further their agenda of global submission to Allah. Just think about it, would the Islamic leadership permit any of their followers to immigrate to the "Great Satan" or the lands of infidels for any other reason. The strategy now is to use the democratic process to their advantage , special privileges in exchange for their collective vote..

Canadian PM Stephen Harper: "I commend the Canadian Muslim community for voicing its opinion peacefully, respectfully and democratically."

Pigfoot, Christian and Jews are offended daily through literature, the media, the arts, the educational system, yet our respective communities are EXPECTED to either be tolerant or respond peacefully. Can you just image if I publicly threatened the life of a director, an artist, an author, a university instructor or an editor because his freedom of expression offended my faith? Hey, there would be legal consequences, and rightly so.

However, a double standard exists in regards to the Islamic faith. There tends to be an understanding by our leader that the Canadians citizens of the Islamic faith are somehow entitled to special privileges and .... they should not be offended through our democratic freedom of expression and when they are , they are commended by our leaders when they respond in a manner that is EXPECTED by all other Canadians.

There is an art display at a gallery in the States where a crucifix is placed upside down in urine. Have the "powers that be" ever thanked Christians for their restraint?

Moslems openly refer to Jews as pigs, monkeys, snakes, rats, spiders in their mosques, media, schools, universities, conferences, literature, loud speakers, etc. Has the "powers that be" ever thanked Jews or Christians for showing restraint? Have the "powers that be" ever challenged the artist or the followers of Islam for these hateful expressions?

Janet.
