Ezra Levant: Should Canada adopt Britain's tough new anti-Islamist policies -- before it's too late?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Today the UK Home Secretary, Theresa May, announced a new, tough sounding campaign to combat "Islamism."

The government had to do something: After all, there are now more UK Muslims fighting for ISIS than there are in the British military.

May's strong words made for a good speech, but we'll see how it works in action.

Some British cities are already majority Muslim or close to it. Will those voters allow such measures to go ahead?

Is it too late for England?

And should Canada adopt a similar hard line program?

Greg Dude! The world without the West is a place that would make your sphincter cringe, ( and not in a sexual way, for all you wannabe offended.) Keep coming back ,also go to actual source info for yourself. It takes more time but can be oh so rewarding. Try to flippen varify your gathered presumptions, and I don’t mean from anyones opinion pages. The answer to all of your questions so far is NO. I can only assume that you are young and may just need more info and time to cook.

Nice talkn’ to ya’, Greg. We must do this again sometime.

To Paul Crosby: You don’t think what the US, Canada and the West is doing to the developing world, ex. Middle East, is a form of terrorism?
Imperialism is the problem. The West going into developing countries and exploiting markets, resources and human labour and oppressing their peoples.
Western governments are committing acts of terrorism, far worse than ISIS.
The West created a Frankenstein. That Frankenstein’s name is ISIS. If the US never decided to invade IRAQ in 2003 and the West did not fund and arm rebel groups in Syria starting in 2011, there would definitely be more political and economic stability in the region.
To Paul Crosby: There is absolutely no integrity behind Bill C-51. The ambiguity of some of the provisions in the bill leave a lot of room for interpretation. Stephen Harper will crush political dissent with an iron fist whenever he gets the chance to. When this bill receives Royal Assent, he will have his chance.

@ Greg Grant …Is it Islamophobic to tell despicable radical Islamists that you’re busted? To radicals, that we’re on to your fascist ideology and the Muslim creep of your backward medieval extremism. Do you support enclaves of independent Sharia law within a civilized country like Canada? A country based on Judeo-Christian beliefs that enabled western civilization and democracy to flower. Or are you so addle-minded and guilt-ridden to be de facto Christianphobic and Judeophobic. If you think Sharia activism is not already the case elsewhere you are completely delusional. Shame on you. For instance, large crowds of protesters carrying signs demanding “Sharia for the Netherlands” and “Islam will dominate the world”. France on daily Islamic terror alerts and constantly discovering networks sending “nice folks” to Syria or Iraq while racist anti-semitism is in full bloom.

The Islamo-Nazis 4th Reich, you identify with, wish to target the West because we don’t believe in these throwback head-cutters, their laundry list of barbaric acts, including rape, stoning and crucifixions. We have radical Imams here in Canada spewing their hatred and violence who should be arrested. American universities like Berkeley have rogue groups of Muslim bigots operating as independent bodies spreading a special toxic brew of lies and distortions, attacking and shouting down people, who should be crushed. The Jews in Germany were no more misguided Naziphobes then the Western countries trying to protect their values, laws and traditions. We don’t live in a fantasy, we’re not spineless and we don’t want it here.

When the pendulum has swung so far to the stifling censorship of political correctness, suicidal multiculturalism, death by over-taxation, forced austerity, and intolerant left-wing extremism, what the UK Independence Party and National Front party of France’s Marine Le Penne offer is hardly extreme but natural. Is it extreme to respect your country’s borders, language, economic integrity and culture? Nationalism is on the rise in response to the hatchet job of multiculturalism and the attack on the fundamental core values of western countries. With the UKIP this includes removal from a European Union that’s crumbling which was correctly foreseen by Nigel Farage. To be right of left can obviously be a very good thing.

So you say members of the Conservative party are terrorists because of the Anti-Terrorism Act. Now that’s a reach and illogical. To be absolutely sure we need to be vigilant that any government doesn’t overstep their powers and the integrity of this Bill. But if you’re not engaged in terrorist activities and aren’t promoting terrorism I have to think you won’t be on a no-fly list or of any interest. I suspect virtually no-one would support this if any government becomes lawless and abuse civil liberties.

There is no dictatorship. That’s the implied goal and purview of Jihadi Trudeau who clearly stated he admires China’s dictatorship and shows reverence to violent Wahhabism. Much like Muslim activist, race-baiter Obama, the Marxist tyrant, who disregards the US Constitution, Congress and recent democratic elections at home and abroad in Israel. Nice friends, race pimp Al Sharpton, Eric Holder (Malcolm X fan), Nation of Islam’s racist Louis Farrakhan, racist Jeremiah Wright, terrorist Bill Ayres, Palestinian fundraiser Rashid Khalidi, Muslim Brotherhood brother Malik, and “Rules for Radicals” champion Saul Alinsky, just to name an illustrious few. And somehow you see a “white” supremacist (liberal guilt) or militia boogeyman under every rock in Obama’s expanding police state.

I suggest you continue to wrap your head around tax sinkhole media like the hilarious comedy programming of CBC and iron-fisted statists, the Toronto Star, to indoctrinate yourself with leftist diluted pap so we can examine first-hand what a mental breakdown looks like. You have no support for your preposterous, vituperative statements. Get your head out of the mud while you still have it. The jokes on you.

Greg Grant…I love our Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. He is the best thing to happen to Canada in decades. We really don’t need new leadership. We have had a stable and peaceful time with him in leadership. Women have found security in his stand against the confining culture that imposes the niqab, that instrument of torture that speaks of oppression and imprisonment for women. He has done more for liberty, especially “more freedom through less government”. He has supported the only democratic state in the middle east despite the twisted folk who would destroy them. During his leadership hundreds of thousands of moderate Muslims have become Canadian Citizens and the budget has been brought under reasonable control. You don’t know him at all, and you don’t know much about us either…we have all supported Tarek, Raheel Raza, Hirsi Ali and many moderate Muslims…but for you and your ignorance, it’s too bad “we can’t fix stupid”.

William Wiser, you are correct. When I was a child in the late fifties, women were not allowed in the Catholic Church without a hat. I noticed my mother and most women simply put a kleenex on their hair with a bobby pin. When the Catholic Bishops saw this , they shelved this medieval rule.
Moslems never change any laws.

Most christians don’t go to the extremes as many muslims do because they stopped taking their religion so seriously. Christians once had a similar stone age mentality and took all that superstitious mumbo jumbo literally but thankfully they’re wising up.

the Star had an article calling Harper’s immigration changes as a barrier to immigration. He is raising the bar and making it more difficult for extremists to enter Canada. A year ago they rescinded 1400 fraudulently obtained citizenships. This is the only government that has an will do anything.

valerie Clark I disagree, the Conservatives are doing something about this problem. Maybe not enough but it is hard when the Left keeps distorting what they are doing.

Ron Voss – I agree with you. This is just a politician saying what the people want to hear. It doesn’t mean a thing. Nothing will change in Britain because nothing CAN change. It’s too late. In another 10 years, it’ll be too late for Canada too because even with a majority, the Conservatives refuse to address this issue or even curtail immigration from islamic countries, much less end it. There should be thousands of muslims deported from Canada every year, but there aren’t.

May is Now marked for death. Muslims are called to kill her. Britain is a mess.

What would happen if our Federal Government did nothing to “promote hatred” or “discrimination” of Muslims… but instead allowed the nation’s people (us) the right to defend ourselves? (Currently this is not the case — if you do anything to an intruder in your home except kill him, YOU get charged with assault.) If we, the population, were permitted to defend ourselves against this religious onslaught, then there would be no political mayhem, and the perpetrators would definitely think twice — because then THEY would run the risk of being killed. AND, there would be no issue about whether Islam was the real culprit or not, because even the moderate Muslims (as they call themselves) would be able to defend themselves. Currently, this is not so.
commented 2015-03-24 09:08:30 -0400
The UK’s Home Secretary (while carefully reading her notes so as not to go off script) got it WRONG starting out of the gate, when she said, “Islam is entirely compatible with our British values and our national way of life”! Elizabeth, er, Theresa May then proceeds to roll out a fictionalized, in her mind non-authentic, version of Islam that she refers to as “Islam extremism” (aka “radical Islam”), not unlike the narrative that we have heard from Justin Trudeau (and Obama) when he described the individuals involved in the attack on Charlie Hebdo as representing “a perversion of Islam…distorted ideology and propaganda masquerading as religion”.
Ezra, I can’t believe that you really are so naive about the true nature of Islam so as to buy into May’s spin. Have a watch of this short, about 8-minute, video providing a “Crash Course in Islam”:
Ezra, you ask, “Is it too late for England?” Hearing May’s pathetic speech, sadly, the answer is YES, “the game is up”! If you don’t know your enemy, you can’t defeat your enemy (to paraphrase 6th century BC Chinese general and military strategist Sun Tzu, author of The Art of War). Regarding May’s “tough **sounding**” posturing, about 400 years ago Shakespeare anticipated a time such as this when he wrote, “it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”!

I think Greg Grant is JD Waibel dressed up as Greg Grant!!

Have you seen Hirsi Ali’s new book? She lived through some of the shariah persecutions you, as a western white dude, say don’t exist when she grew up in Somalia. She is the target of constant death threat just for having an opinion.

What about that sort of threat do you think is not terrorist?
commented 2015-03-24 04:02:22 -0400
To Greg Grant: Yes, as a matter of fact I have read the Bible, many times! I try to read through it once a year.(In fact today I just completed the Book of Ruth and tomorrow I start 1st Samuel). And almost all of those passages you refer to are in the old testament, and written as recorded history, not as instructions for living a Godly life. And in the new testament, the only violence recorded is the crucifixion of Jesus.
commented 2015-03-24 02:49:09 -0400
Wow, Greg G. good to get your point of view. I think it is good to know what other opinions are out there, so I am glad you are joining in. Have you ever heard of the New Testament ? . Considered the facts of the crusades in context? Christianity pulled itself out of medieval times, its premise is NOT Kill, unlike Islamists. No threat ? so vote for Justin, And good luck with that. Good vid Ezra. I hope its not too late for the UK. If we don’t pay attention ……
commented 2015-03-24 02:42:19 -0400
Greg, what the hell are you on? You must have been sleeping through that whole “Islamist terrorist kills soldier, attacks parliament” story arc. I can’t think of a more obvious response to your claim that it isn’t a threat to national security. He was trying to kill everyone in parliament! What has to be more obvious to you that it’s a threat to national security? So, to keep yourself from looking even stupider than you already are, maybe take some time to review some recent stories involving honour killings, plans to bomb trains, that sort of thing. Then come back here and try again to convince anyone, anywhere that the threat of Islamic Fundamentalism is fake and virtually non-existent. Tell that to the family of Nathan Cirillo. If you can convince them that this threat is fake and virtually non-existent, I’ll buy into it also. Don’t hold your breath. And your claim that “Terrorist attacks of a far right-wing political nature (Neo-Nazi, Militiamen, white supremacist, etc.) far outnumber those committed by jihadists.” is just plain fantasy. I mean, real good drugs, Lucy in the sky with diamonds out of your freaking mind hallucinations. I’ve been tracking news headlines in our major networks and some local networks for a few weeks now. The trend seems to be at least 2 of the 3 lead stories, any newscast of any day, involve violent acts of terrorism by Islamic Fundamentalists. Right now, as of this writing, CTV’s lead story is about Canada’s reaction to ISIS, which is kinda related but not one I would count. I would count the third story which is the sister of the victim of a violent Islamist Fundamentalist, right here in Canada, supports bill C-51. That’s from the current headlines on No mention, anywhere, on any network, of neo-nazi’s, militiamen, white supremacists. You’re just screwy, man!

Oh dear, the Bible card is being played. I’m not an expert in the Bible by any means. And I’m sure there are violent, and cruel, and unusual passages in it. But you know what? No one goes around committing violent crimes quoting the Bible. A case could be made for fire bombing of abortion clinics or the murder of abortion doctors. But that is few and far between. No one kills because a Bible may have been burned or destroyed in some fashion. No one kills or riot’s because Jesus had an image of him posted online or shown on the media. Mohammed is in a poor second place to the amount of derogatory images that are shown of Jesus.
Why do you believe Islamic Fundamentalism is fake? And not a threat? It may not be a threat to you but may be a very real threat to us. Sharia law is not a threat to you. But it is a threat to the way we are governed.
It’s rather ingenuous to believe that most terrorist attacks are not committed by Jihadists since by US government policy, Islam cannot be connected with terrorism. Such was the case in Fort Hood in 2009. Major Nidal Hasan who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers. The US government classified it as workplace violence. And since many terrorist s attacks by Jihadists are sometimes thwarted before anything happens, thus this also skews the numbers. But if you look at the FBI list of 10 most wanted terrorists… looks like 8 of them are Muslim.

To Maurice Potvin: Have you read the Bible? I can tell you that there are many violent, cruel and inhumane passages in that holy book too.
All of you seem really focused on this fake and virtually non-existent threat of Islamic Fundamentalism to Canada’s national security. It is very amusing for me too watch. Lol.
You know in Canada, there is a higher probability that you will die from a moose attack then from a terrorist attack. And also, try analyzing the terrorist attacks in the US over the last 6 years since Obama became president. Terrorist attacks of a far right-wing political nature (Neo-Nazi, Militiamen, white supremacist, etc.) far outnumber those committed by jihadists.

One of the wonderful things about Liberal Democracies like Canada, is that we all have equal rights, and, (unless you’re a Christian) an equal right to express you beliefs… freedom of speech…. even for stupid people. Case in point… Greg Grant! We welcome your comments, Greg Grant! Without people like you we would never recognize intelligent people when we hear them.. so, thank you! Now to the issue at hand: I do not believe for one moment that Theresa May’s words are any more than that; just words…. a show of bravado that won’t accomplish anything except maybe give the party a temporary boost in the poles. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think I am. I am truly grateful for the peace-loving, tolerant Muslims, who are on the forefront of fighting radical Islam and putting their lives on the line every day…. people like Tarek Fatah. But if you study the Qur’an, you will find that it’s really these peace-loving Muslims who are the apostates from the true Islamic faith, and the murderous radicals who practice true orthodoxy. “Qur’an 3.28 Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah makes you cautious of (retribution from) Himself; and to Allah is the eventual coming. By ‘guarding carefully’, a Muslim should deceive the infidel. Acting as a friend as long as he remain in a position of subordination until he gain the upper hand, so that in his deception he may benefit the Muslim and protect Islam.” One more thing while I’m on the subject, as far as benifits provided to immegrants and refugees and those on welfare or receiving any kind government subsidies or payments, radical Islamsits consider it not only their right, but also their duty, to milk the Infidel Government of Briton or Canada for everthing they possibly can. They are commanded in the Quo’ran to levy a “Jizya” (Neck Tax) to allow Jews and Christians who refuse to convert to Islam to live. The English translation to “Neck Tax” is very appropriate, considering the beheadings. “Pay us and we won’t cut your head off”. They consider all benifits that they can squeeze out of the tax-payer to be “Jizya” and rightfully theirs.

*I think we should entrench our way of government into the Constitution so that no matter what number of immigrants we bring in, they cannot change our way of government.
*We have graduated licences for vehicle driving, so why can’t we have graduated citizenship which includes following our way as a Canadian Society. It should be far more difficult to become a Canadian Citizen no matter where you come from. If that were the case, people who do become citizens would appreciate it more. Right now, it appears we are giving them away in Cracker Jack boxes.
*Citizenship is a civil contract. It should be treated as such. The contract should be laid out in black and white terms. If they want to be citizens, these people would have to sign. If they don’t, too bad so sad. If they become citizens and they do not follow the contract, we can simply, after due process, get rid of them.

I built his deck and fence brought loads of dirt and a six foot tree for his yard with my truck since he only has a Lexus and a dodge minivan for his wife and kids.I never asked for payment.

Greg Grant, your statement "that we would be no better than “isis” is ridiculous. Is Canada or any other democratic nation raping, beheading small children, babies and others, burning down mosques (which by the way they should be), stealing people’s homes and property, etc etc. ? No. My comment was only to imply that it is time for the offenders to be dealt a harsh death sentence as in any time of war. The time for using words to appease the enemy is long past and simply does not and will not work. To defend our nation and security is extremely urgent against the enemy whose only intent is to destroy us from the inside out and in the jihadist fashion to blow us all up and kill as many of us as possible. Think about that for awhile.
