The survey says … Muslim Canadians love Canada. At least that was one of the findings in a recent survey of 600 Canadian Muslims conducted by Environics, which was then enthusiastically reported by many media outlets.
The glowing headline on CBC.ca read:
“Muslim Canadians increasingly proud of and attached to Canada, survey suggests.”
The sub-head read: “83% of Muslim Canadians report being 'very proud' to be Canadian, compared to just 73% of non-Muslim Canadians."
These are exactly the sort of talking points the left wants to see reported and personally, I hope the statements are honest and sincere, but how does one truly know?
Westerners are becoming familiar with Islamic terms like "sharia," "jihad" and "fatwa." But there’s another Koranic term that non-Muslims should know because it puts a giant asterisk on surveys like this.
The term is “al-Taqiyya”, the Islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs from infidels. Islam permits lying and deception if done for the greater good like in an effort to establish an Islamic state.
So when you see such glowing numbers bandied about by the leftwing media regarding Muslim-Canadian patriotism, it might be a good idea to digest this info with a shovelful of salt.
