Shortly after taking office in November 2015, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on CBC's "1 on 1" argued the importance of working with "the Muslim community to demonstrate that Islam is not incompatible with free and open Western societies." Thus, reiterating the oxymoron that was introduced by the Muslim Brotherhood and has since been used by their many affiliated Muslim organizations to dupe the West.
So when on October 18, 2017, the province of Quebec passed a new law banning the wearing of niqab or burqa "when riding public transit or receiving government services" for security reasons- Trudeau made it known he wasn't happy with the new provincial law, law. "As a federal government, we are going to take our responsibility seriously and look carefully at what the implications are" even though the federal government, cannot challenge the new law, implying others could.
It didn't take long for the leading Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated, the National Council of Canadian Muslims and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, together with Marie-Michelle Lacoste, a Montreal convert to Islam to file a lawsuit with the province's Superior Court requesting to suspend the law because the ban "gravely infringes" the religious and equality rights of Muslim women in the province. She accused the local government of sending a message " to the citizens is that if they already have negative thoughts about Muslim women wearing the niqab, it's OK to think this way, (that) you are right to harass them, to threaten them, to insult them," she announced. The Court is scheduled to hear her request later on Wednesday. Rest assured that if the court denies her request, she and the Islamic organizations that support her will not stop until the ban is lifted.
"The Awareness guide - listed terrorist entities," posted on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police website, quotes Sections 318, 319, and 320 of the Criminal Code, which forbids hate propaganda. "Hate propaganda" means "any writing, sign or visible representation that advocates or promotes genocide or the communication of which by any person would constitute an offence under section 319."
But since Trudeau took office, his pro-Islamic policies led to lax enforcement of Canada's anti- "hate-crime" and incitement laws against Canadians, including Muslim religious leaders, who publicly support the mujahideen in their armed struggle against infidels, and the killing of the enemies of Islam.
Last September, Quebec prosecutors decided not to file hate crimes charges against Sheikh Sayyed Al-Ghitawi, an imam at the Al-Andalous Islamic Center in Montreal, who during two Friday sermons on August 2014, prayed to Allah to "destroy the accursed Jews" and to "kill them one by one."
"Oh Allah, turn their children into orphans and their women into widows," he said in the sermons, which were posted on the Alrahma Qanat on YouTube.
Similarly, no legal action was taken against any of the speakers at the Iran initiated and sponsored annual al Quds Day rally that took place in Toronto on June 24, 2017, who called to kill those who "oppress" Muslims. Syed Mohammad Zaki Baqri, a speaker at the Toronto rally, said: " It is the law that whoever oppresses, he has to be eliminated."
The Iran-inspired Al-Quds Day rally in Toronto gave a platform to radical anti-Israel propaganda and anti-Semitic ranting. The annual event was opened with a song encouraging Palestinians to kill Israel, and Jews by all means "whenever they see them."
The crowd expressed its support of Canada-designated Iran sponsored terrorist organization Hezbollah, chanting: "Long live [Hassan] Nasrallah [leader of Hezbollah]" and "Long live Hezbollah." They shouted: "O Jews, remember [the massacre of] Khaibar, the army of Mohammad will return." Flags of Iran, scarves with the emblem of Hezbollah, signs, and pictures of Iran's current and past spiritual leaders and the commander of Iran's Quds Force were seen everywhere, showing the depth of the increasing Iranian influence and ideology in Canada.
Speaker after speaker accused the "Zionists" (i.e. Jews) of being the force behind the conflicts in the Arab and the Islamic world, of conspiring to commit the 9/11 attacks and of controlling the American and Canadian policy in the Middle East. Yet, there was no official condemnation of the speakers or the event.
This and similar rallies throughout Canada inciting to kill Jews and other "oppressors of Islam" anywhere, are posted on YouTube and other social media sites (see Appendix below) and regularly re-posted on the web pages and internet sites of many Canadian mosques and pro-Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Yet the Trudeau government seems unable or unwilling to stop the rallies and remove the videos. And since no legal action is taken against the speakers at these rallies, don't be surprised when the next "self-radicalized" Muslim to attack bicyclists or pedestrians in New York will arrive here not from Azerbaijan, but from Canada.

Al-Quds Day in Toronto (June 2014)
The annual Al Quds Day rally took place in Toronto on Saturday, June 24, 2017. The international event was initiated in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of Islamic Republic of Iran as an expression of solidarity with the Palestinian people in opposing Zionism and Israel’s right to exist. The first part of the rally was held on the northeast lawn in front of the Ontario legislature and the second in front of the American Consulate.

Members of Neturei Karta took an active part in the rally and a speech on behalf of them was read by one of the organizers. Members of the Communist Party of Canada and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at UOIT also participated in the rally among others.
Al Quds Day rally in Toronto was opened with the song “Declare it a Popular Revolution” that was produced by the “Military Media” of the Islamic Jihad organization a Canada-designated terrorist group that is inspired and supported militarily and financially by Iran.
Here is the English translation from Arabic of the song’s lyrics:
Let those who dispute Our signs know that there is no escape for them.
Whatever you have been given are the wares of the life of this world, but what is with Allah is better and more lasting for those who have faith and who put their trust in their Lord
—those who avoid major sins and indecencies, and forgive when angered;
those who answer their Lord, maintain the prayer, and [conduct] their affairs by counsel among themselves, and they spend out of what We have provided them;
those who, when afflicted by oppression, defend themselves.
The requital of evil is an evil like it, so whoever excuses and conciliates, his reward lies with Allah. Indeed, He does not like the wrongdoers.
As for those who retaliate after being wronged, there is no ground for action against them.
The ground for action is only against those who oppress the people and commit tyranny in the land in violation of justice. For such there will be a painful punishment.
As for someone who endures patiently and forgives—that is indeed the steadiest of courses.
Those whom Allah leads astray have no guardian apart from Him. You will see the wrongdoers, when they sight the punishment, saying, ‘Is there any way for a retreat?’
Following are excerpts from the speeches that were delivered at Al-Quds Day rally:
“White supremacy attacks people, no matter what color, what religion, it is a hateful aspiration that tries to pick a group of people against another group of people. It is a hateful ideology that profits from the conflicts that are being waged in countries in the Middle East, from the colonialism that happens in Africa. I want you to understand that this evil must be confronted and we have to confront it together… I want to thank you for those who are fasting and to those who are not fasting, those who come here to show solidarity with an important movement, a just movement, a movement against the occupation, one of the longest occupations in modern history. Shame! [crowd: Shame!]. I want to tell my children one day that I witnessed the end of the longest military occupation in human history. Let us work together to end it.”
“Ramadan mubarak [blessed]… Inshallah [Allah Willing] next Ramadan we will celebrate it in Jerusalem al-Quds. Inshallah. I know it might be a long shot thanks to the fat and corrupt rulers of the so-called the Gulf, because they are conspiring now against Palestine and the resistance, but we will continue mobilizing, organizing, marching [inaudible] speaking up for Palestine until Palestine is free from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea. [crowd: From the River to the Sea Palestine will be free]. From the River to the Sea Palestine will be free.”
“It [al-Quds Day rally and the movement for Palestine] is a manifestation of love for humanity. But if you love humanity you have to hate lies and injustice. Lies and injustice go together because people have a natural disposition for justice. In Islam we call that a fitrah, the innate fitrah, the innate human nature which loves justice and hates injustice. That was given to us by God. And to make us go along with injustice they have to lie to us. Over and over and over we see examples of how to get people to go to war they have to lie. They have to stage false flag events. They have to convince people that they are being attacked by outside aggressor when in fact there is no such threat. They have to make this group [the participants in al-Quds Day rally in Toronto], a group that is standing up for justice and peace and love and reaching out to humanity, they have to try to falsely claim that we are really about hate and aggression. The Zionists have been practicing this for a century, turning black into white, up into down, truth is a lie… Let me get to my list [“top lies”] of how the Zionists thus far managed to succeed in their project through lies… let’s bring my ten top lies. Let’s start up with the lie that Palestine is somehow holier to Jews than to Muslims and Christians. That’s a lie… no. 2 – The Jews are the original inhabitants of Palestine… Big lie no. 3… Judaism calls the Jews to take over Palestine and establish a state… The 4th big lie is that Christianity says that the Jews are supposed to invade Palestine and take over it and establish a state… Big lie no. 5 [the idea to establish a Jewish state in Africa]… Big lie no. 6 – they said we don’t want a state, we just want a homeland… from the get-go they planned the ethnic cleansing and establishing a Jewish supremacy state. Big lie no. 7 – They attack us, we are defenders. We are defending our land against these aggressors… shame, shame England… Big lie no. 8 is they are the terrorists. They are the terrorists, not us. I’m sorry Zionists, you are the terrorists. [crowd: Zionism is terrorism. From Yemen to Palestine occupation is a crime]. So terrorism established the State of Israel and continues to establish the State of Israel to this day… terrorism, terrorism, terrorism is what the Zionists have for breakfast every morning, is what they live and breath and they have the gall to call us the terrorists. [crowd: shame] And then they go on even further and call us Nazis and allied to the Nazis. The Zionist movement was in fact allied to the Nazis. The Zionists and the Nazis historically had the same goal which is to get the Jews out of Europe. They are both racists. They both can’t live with other people… Big lie no. 10 – the Nazi crimes justify the theft of Palestine… 11th lie is that Israel supports democracy and human rights… Big lie [no. 12]… they claim that the Jews of the world need Israel for protection… Finally the last of the big lies [no. 13]… the lie that the Zionists don’t have any power in Canada. Some people say it’s owned by a certain family named Bronfman, which is an organized crime family that made their money from importing drugs into the United States, liquor of course in prohibition, and they have no power here? I don’t think so. They basically own the place, people I’m sorry. And the United States? Zionists have no power there?. What did Congress cheer for? They don’t cheer for the American President, they cheer for [Israel’s Prime Minister] Bibi Netanyahu. Why is that? Because Zionists give about half of all of the money that flows into the American political campaigns and Zionists own about half or more of the big mainstream media and run it, and some say more than half, and there is a Zionist power configuration that can mobilize far 100,000 plus people. They have dozens of billionaires, hundreds of billionaires behind them, and they have taken over US Middle East policy, they have taken over Canadian Middle East policy. They stirred, this is where I’m controversial, this is why they don’t want me to come here to speak, because I will stand up and tell you that I’ve done more that a decade of a research on 9-11-2001 in New York and Washington, and this was a coup d’etat organized by insiders in the United States government and outsiders from Israel, and it was a coup d’etat by Zionists in the United States of America [inaudible]. [crowd: Zionism in Nazism. Free free Palestine. From Yemen to Palestine occupation is a crime] So that’s the lie that I’ve been working on for the last 10 years… today the same program [initiating terrorism] continues, it is run by NATO, the United States and Israel to some extent, and it continues to create more false flag terrorism designed to incite Islamophobia and keep this war on Islam and the war on Palestine with the disguise that this is a war on terrorism going.”
“Israeli settlers as a group commit more acts of terrorism than virtually any other group identified by the global terrorism index… [Israel’s Prime Minister] admitted that terrorism benefits Israel and so it should since the war on terror, actually a war on Islam, targets all the countries, the political parties and entire peoples that support justice for Palestinians… Is it a coincidence that major funders of Israel’s illegal settlements are identified as those funding the main sources of Islamophobia?”

“If you have an ailment, we have to go to doctor. The doctor will not going to treat you until he or she knows the causes of ailment. Without knowing causes they do not treat. Today causes of ailment of humanity we have to search. Why killing is going on in Syria, in Iraq, in Oman, in Afghanistan, in Pakistan, in Mozambique people have been killed without reason. Why? We have to question. What is the root cause? The root cause is Zionism…, Israel, Zionism, should and must know … it is the law that whoever oppresses, he has to be eliminated. One day or the other.”
“I’d like you to sign and share an online petition to the Trudeau government to terminate its military mission to Syria and Iraq [crowd: yes]… We want the Canadian government to end that mission and bring home the planes and the troops from Syria and Iraq. [crowd cheers]… You may ask Syria and Iraq have to do with al-Quds Day? And I say: everything. The criminal Zionist regime illegally occupying al-Quds Jerusalem has been deeply involved in the war on Syria… the same Wall Street Journal also said that the Israeli authorities have provided a significant amount of cash, food, fuel and medical supplies to Sunni rebels fighting against the legitimate government of Bashar al-Assad. Brothers and sisters, you have wondered why ISIS and al-Qaeda bombed London, Paris, New York and Brussels but never Tel Aviv? That’s because the terrorists had made a common cause with the apartheid regime in Jerusalem… Why is the Israeli government in bed with ISIS and al-Qaeda? Brothers and sisters, it is because Israel, though is condemns Hezbollah, the government of Iran and Hamas as terrorist, we know who are the real terrorists in the Middle East. If I ask you who is the terrorist you should answer: Zionism, Israel is the terrorist. [crowd: Zionism is terrorism, down with Zionism]… that Canadian mission [in Syria and Iraq] supports both Israeli and US plan to destabilize the region and balkanize all Arab countries… To conclude I would like to also recognize the immense sacrifice made by the Syrian government and people in defending their country from foreign invasion and occupation. I would like to pay tribute to the governments of Iran, Russia and China without whose help the diabolic plans of the US and Israel would have succeeded by now. Praise is also due to the heroic fighters from Hezbollah and the Palestinian brigades who waged many important battles to protect Syria and defend it against the terrorists sponsored by Israel and the USA and Canada… Syria will win. Iraq will win. Iran will win and Palestine will be free from the river to the sea.”
“We are here today standing on a stolen land… the indigenous peoples, our siblings who just like the Palestinians are dealing with ongoing genocide and colonialism… This is the context under which we gathered today… colonialism and capitalism are the root causes of injustice against Palestinians, against black folks, against the LGBTQ community, against Muslims and against the working class…”
Zionism is Nazism
Zionism in terrorism
Down with Zionism
From the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea Palestine will be free
Long live [Hassan] Nasrallah [leader of Hezbollah], Long live Hezbollah

Participants in the rally held signs featuring pictures of Khomeini and Khamenei and waved also the flags of Iran and the Popular Mobilization Forces (الحشد الشعبي).
On August 10, 2016, the Bureau of Democracy, human rights and labor of the US Department of State, issued the 2015 Report on International Religious Freedom that documented allegations of war crimes committed by the Iraqi forces, including the Popular Mobilization Forces. The following are excerpts from the report:24
“Media and government officials reported Peshmerga and Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) prevented displaced Sunni Arabs, Turkmen, and others from returning to their homes in some liberated areas…
“In December the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) stated Iraqi security forces, affiliated popular mobilization forces, and KRG security forces were responsible for extrajudicial killings, abductions, illegal detentions, forced evictions, and looting and destruction of property belonging to Sunni Arab communities.
“There continued to be reports local police or armed groups under government control either killed Sunni detainees or failed to prevent deadly attacks on Sunni detainees.
“Human Rights Watch (HRW) reported Shia Turkmen fighters from the PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] abducted and tortured between 150 and 175 Sunni Arabs from Tuzkhurmatu, killed between eight and 34 of those abducted, and kept approximately 50 in captivity as of year’s end, while releasing the rest.
“Also in Tuzkhurmatu, PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] units (composed of Shia Turkmen, the Iranian-backed Badr Brigade, the Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq, and Kita’ib Hizballah) clashed with Peshmerga forces and the Asayish (Kurdistan internal security) after an October 22 car bombing and an exchange of fire on November 12. The two sides, supported by armed local residents from their respective communities, reportedly engaged in mass arrests, razed homes, and looted and burned villages.
“In many cases Shia PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] reportedly operated independently and without oversight or direction from the government.
“According to Amnesty International (AI), on January 26, Shia PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] and government security forces killed at least 56 and possibly more than 70 Sunni men in Barwana, a village west of Muqdadiya in Diyala Governorate….
“In March according to HRW, members of Shia PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces], including Kita’ib Hizballah and Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq, apprehended and detained up to 200 Sunni residents from Jalam areas of ad-Dawr, Salah ad Din Governorate. A local member of parliament called for a government investigation; however, at year’s end, the whereabouts of at least 160 abductees remained unknown…
“On April 7, the Council of Ministers announced the PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] was an official body reporting to the prime minister. The prime minister’s ability to command the PMF [Popular Mobilization Forces] remained a source of disagreement and debate…
“The Shia religious establishment urged popular mobilization volunteers not to commit abuses. On February 12, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani issued a fatwa instructing volunteers to take every precaution to avoid killing innocent civilians. He also instructed them not to inflict harm on non-Muslims, and said anyone who did was a “betrayer and a traitor.”
A man affiliated with the Communist Party of Canada was wearing a scarf that has the picture of Hassan Nasrallah and the emblem of Hezbollah printed on it. Another participant came with a T-shirt featuring the picture of Qasem Soleimani, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force. Both Quds Force and Hezbollah are designated by Canada as terrorist entities.25
Another participant held a sign with a anti-Israel cartoon by Carlos Latuff. In his article “Anti-Semitic Cartoons on Progressive Blogs”, Adam Levick noted: “The cartoonist most frequently appearing on the progressive blogs analyzed here is Carlos Latuff. He is an extreme left-wing political activist who won second place in the notorious Iranian Holocaust Cartoon Competition. Latuff is one of the more prolific anti-Semitic cartoonists on the web, with a staggering amount of work dedicated to advancing explicitly anti-Semitic political imagery.”26
