    Very articulate and rational message to Canadian senate.

    Thank you for your recommendations. They are honest, insightful and valuable. My concern is the passage of time and Muslim leadership. You are moderate, agreed, but my concerns are:

    How do you stop the radicalisation of people in the future when the Koran is at cause for this radicalisation?

    How do you stop the hero worship of jihadists when that too is the pinnacle of “true believers” as per the Koran—It is like denying the word of the Koran.

      The Koran says Mohammed married Aisha at the age of 6 and consummated the marriage when she was nine. However I read an excellent analysis by Mr. Fatah on how this was an incorrect interpretation and Aisha was not a child bride. This is how Christianity and Judaism have death with the savagery from their texts. This is the only approach that will allow Islam to survive in the modern world. Otherwise it is doomed to extinction.

        Please cite the verse in the Quran that says Mohammed married a child. I humbly await your response.

          Book 8: The Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah) – Hadith 3309 – Sahih

            it is a fact that Aisha was married and marriage consummated as a child and that the book says give Qafirs ( Non- Believers) one opportunity to convert and if they refuse, kill them, and take their women and wealth.
            But we can not test the actions of 600 AD with 21st century prism. However, the problem is that the majority of people are becoming more hard core and are not modernizing. We have to find a way to make bridges with Moderate Muslims and make them speak up, but it is not easy.

      Monika Evers, there are those who want Biblical Law, and it is just as violent as Koranic Law. How do we stop this, because radical Christians are gaining momentum in Canada.

        It’s rational people too. I’m against all types of religions influencing government policy!

        While ‘some’ may pray & wish for it, there are no Christian sects ‘demanding’ government install Biblical Law to supersede National Laws. Not One.

        If anything the Christians you see/hear speaking up are not asserting that they are supreme, they are fighting for existing freedoms & rights of all Canadians to Speech & Freedom of Religion.
        They’ve watched not only as prayer in school was removed, but also symbols being stripped (A memorial in Edmonton had it’s cross removed because it offended Muslims)

        If Christians demanded the Moon & Star symbol be removed from all buildings, don’t you think there would be a holy uproar? Absolutely!
        So… why are we catering to the demands of one group to force us to kowtow to their every wish? (eg: Demands for Halal food in our stores/restaurants or face huge lawsuits) Because they are working us via ‘Victim’ Lawfare cases conducted by exceedingly conniving Lawyers & extremely well organized & heavily financed Islamic foundations that pay to ensure the law comes out on their side in ‘working’ the loopholes in our laws & UN international laws against us.

        If they prefer Halal food, you would think like any other cultural group has done over the years, with any chosen ethnic food, they build their own restaurant supply chains w/ Halal certified foods, Right?
        You’d think those wishing for a better life (Hearing Canada is an easy going, laws are fairly lax thus one of the best places to do what you want) they would want to assimilate into our society and share their rich culture… Turns out..It’s been reported in several online videos that Muslims will NOT, & do NOT have to assimilate into ANY culture. That it is the infidels (non-Muslim) that must change to accommodate their way of life in every way.
        It makes me wonder why come or stay here if the cultures are so offensive, different or incompatible….why ram it down our throats…? Unless that’s the plan.
        The more reports overseas & now in Canada that I read/see, it’s become evermore apparent, these fundamentalists are not interested in joining Canadian society, rather…they are infiltrating…and by the numbers, they will do it if we allow our laws to be changed for them.

        In many parts of France & Germany, women are now not allowed to venture outside alone or with men who are not their brothers, father, husband, to go for even coffee. They definitely dare not venture out anywhere at night or risk being raped, and if they report it to authorities, risk being accused/counter-charged for some non-offence, then targeted by violent gangs later. Police do not even go into the areas where only Muslims live (No-Go Zones) and in some cases (this week) Refugee mobs chased down French police who were driving police cruizers.

        As a so-called ‘peaceful’ religion, bullying people until they change, to do what they want them to do, doesn’t show any sort of peace to me…
        Don’t get me started on the now all too numerous to count, videos of imams (One in Toronto this week [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRq3UWsoT0U] – Same one in this article – http://tarekfatah.com/meet-imam-said-rageah-of-toronto-he-wants-to-establish-islam-in-every-corner-of-the-city-prays-to-allah-to-destroy-them-from-within/ or this one from last summer after Orlando attack http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-imam-homophobic-youtube-video-1.3650317) actually stating that they will take over kill infidels/gays or those who reject/insult Islam.

        We already have Hate Crime Laws in Canada, there is no need to create new laws which protects & raises Muslims above all others. That is religious discrimination.

        Either our laws, rights & freedoms are for all or they’re for none. PERIOD

        Extreme Fundamental Islamist’s mission is to install Sharia Law wherever they are…just like they have in Germany, in Britain, in France, in Sweden, in Denmark… & inside the UN…how did they do that? They quietly infiltrated each branch of government & administration branches and heavily lobbied for Pro-Islam rights (After a large disproportionate #s of young healthy male refugees (Note: very few woman children or elderly were in many of those migrant groups) rushed into these regions supposedly ‘seeking asylum’ and voted each pro-fundamentalist member into offices of power.

        Do you not watch news other than mainstream media? I suggest you familiarize yourself with more than just the biased/one-sided approach of not only the bloody Sunni vs Shiite war, but also Sharia & what it really is and what it’s NOT, but do so with a balanced & objective mind.

        I will never submit to allowing ‘OUR” civil or human rights stripped from us in order to appease a mandate to oppress us in any/every way. I don’t hate, but I will not tolerate what is happening & being allowed to happen by those who are suppose to protect us all.

        Jim Brown, a few handful radical christians can never bring biblical law .it’s a myth ..

        But look around each and every muslim around the world wish for sharia law..

        Christianity was violent centuries ago ..but now it has modernised itself .. but muslims still remain in 600AD..

        You must visit a mosque or an islamic school .you will find they are still studying books authored during ottoman empire..they are taught to hate west and non muslims..they are 100s of YouTube.
        Although I am speaking from my experience what I see in my country .

        I am from india ,and churches here convert poor and tribals by insulting and demeaning hinduism..we hate it ..but they are anti hinduism not anti humanity ..

        Don’t wait for the day when islamists come to your house and kill you for blasphemy ..

        North and South pole can never meet ..in the same way west culture and middle East can never meet ..

    Many comments and suggestions implied here are true, and I recommend government takes serious action, there are some serious issues with certain groups and individuals.
    I also recommend all trouble makers in certain communities, specially those know to public, the fake refugees, those who said they were victims of a certain corrupt and criminal regimes, or they claimed they were converts, but in fact, they are not, those who create problems with genuine law abiding immigrants and refugees, including bogus students ….their initial applications and files MUST be reviewed and if they have lied, and I am sure some did, they MUST be deported regardless of their statues. We need immigrants and real refugees including who indeed are bona fide and determined to make Canada their home.

    It seems our Canadian government is the biggest concern for us canadian population and national security, The very people we elected and paid to protect and strengthen this nation, are actually destroying Canada! Many don’t understand and have never lived in a islamic country, many confuse humanity and taking is Islamic refugees with being canadian! That is not being canadian, that is being stupid and destroying canada! Woman are forced to cover their faces? Communities killy their children with stones because they don’t follow the ways of Islam? – time to wake up! Email you politicians, call them! Tell them to watch this video! Tell them they are failing!

    People in Toronto voted in these Liberal Communists and their goal is to destroy the structure and viability of Canada. Any one else would call that treason

    Sir, very apt, pertinent and well articulated speech… but on lighter note why you look so grumpy in your cartoon especially when you are quite logical and jovial!!
