in response to reader comment: Canada: Classic Left Wing Mentality, Anti US, Israel = Hizbollah A budding Canadistan

With all due respect Orange,

You note three sources -- one a blog, another a CTV report, and a report from Terence McKenna at the CBC. But, you know, this is like noting the existence of a rain drop in the midst of a blizzard of blowing snow. I cannot begin to note all the other items in the day which are completely dedicated to exonerating and/or making excuses for Islam while demonizing the United States and Israel. It's non-stop. Even items one would think would be immune from a political slant -- lo and behold -- there'll arise some link with the "war-mongering Americans". And this has become so mainstream, so common, that it doesn't even need to be spelt out.

Use the term "terrorist" and the first thought is the United States or Israel. That's how bad things are here (and, I think it's actualy getting worse, not better.) More and more one sees women dressed in black bags, there are more and more mosques springing up, more and more radical Imams spewing venom, the immigration rates are increasing, not decreasing, radical Sunni imams in support of Iranian Khomeninism get published in The Liberal -- on and on. Almost every indicator is bleak. (Tarek Fatah, a progressive Muslim, is writing a book about the Islamists in Canada -- that's a good sign -- but knowing what the problems are and doing something about them are two very different things).
