Anti-Muslim graffiti vs. pro-ISIS Facebook posts: See which crime sent a man to jail

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Vancouver Sun reports: “Fort St. John man acquitted on four terrorism charges.”

Othman Hamdan, a Muslim “refugee,” was charged with making Facebook posts promoting ISIS, “calling [on] lone wolves to ‘activate’ across the U.S.”

However, the judge ruled that while the posts were “offensive, that did not mean that [Hamdan] was encouraging or inciting acts of murder, assault and mischief…” adding:

“Hamdan also told police at the time that he was ‘against killing innocent people,’ suggesting he didn’t have the necessary intent to incite a terrorist attack.”

When the cops pick you up, and you just say, No, I didn’t mean it — that’s enough for a judge?

Now here’s another court case from this week:

An Oshawa man was sentenced to five months is jail for writing “No more Muslims” graffiti at bus stops:

“Joseph Porco shows little insight into the harmful nature of his conduct, Ontario Court Justice Ferhan Javed said…”

(Yes, Javed is a Muslim judge.)

So a Muslim “refugee” made 85 Facebook posts glamourizing ISIS and praising the murders of two Canadian soldiers. But he was acquitted.

Then a Canadian citizen, who may be delusional, scrawls three words on a bus bench — not even a derogatory name, let alone a call to action or violence — but he’s thrown in jail by a Muslim judge for nearly half a year.

And all of this before M-103, the anti-Islamophobia motion is turned into law...

NEXT: Our favourite expert immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann explains how Trump's expanded travel ban will impact immigration in the U.S. and Canada.

THEN: Quebec broadcaster and Rebel contributor Eric Duhaime and I talk about the M-103 hearings, particularly the troubling remarks calling for censorship and prosecution, made by former CSIS and RCMP officer Michel Juneau-Katsuya.

Good to see Eric again.

Hey, Liza Rosie, are you just being hateful? Please don’t give in to the hatefulness The Rebel is often accused of.

Readers of The Rebel tend to be conservative and perhaps a bit suspicious. But they are not, and do not want to be seen as bigoted or racist.

The kind of people we want in Canada don’t come here to live under sharia law or be charged by sharia courts for blasphemy. Certainly no indigenous Canadian would expect to have to tolerate such a thing in their own country.

I wouldn’t put bringing in more refugees past Justin. I don’t want more refugees and I do not want more Islam. I do not think tipping our demographic with large groups of people from Islamic countries is a smart or a good idea for Canada. Please don’t put me in jail, but I do not consider Islam compatible with Canadian values.
Canada used to be a great place to be from. I feel it is being taken from us by our sell out politicians who refuse to educate themselves on the ideology and we are being sold out to the ideology. Why are they ignoring the ‘reformists’ and the ex Muslims, the people with a more realistic view of Islam? They only listen to one side, the extreme side of Islam. Any Muslim pushing m103 and sharia onto Canada is an extremist by definition. We have extremists in our government, educational and judicial institutions. What chance does a free Canada have of continuing to exist into the future now?

Jay Kelly-what a load of condescending bullshit. I always wondered where you got the idea that the Rebel “entertains many anti-Jewish stories and conspiracy theories and more…” since you never give any examples. I thankyou for clearing that up for me in your spin doctoring statement “anti-Muslim rhetoric is basically anti-Jewish rhetoric.” In other words it’s just in your head. Here’s the bottom line Jay, if a Muslim had spray painted ‘no more Christians’ on that bus stop bench, would he even be charged? And if he actually was, and appeared before this same Muslim judge, would he have gotten the same sentence?

Ezra Levant has provided a great service to the Canadian media scene. He has been ridiculed by so many of his former colleagues but he has continued to work.

Most painful for him, I think, is the accusations that he is anti-Semite, even though he is a proud Jew. The Rebel entertains many anti-Jewish stories and conspiracy theories and more, but Levant has stuck through it all.

Many Rebel readers think there is a sort of free-for-all against Muslims, as though Muslims are evil. They do not realize that the anti-Muslim rhetoric is basically an anti-Jewish rhetoric.

To his amazing credit, Ezra Levant has gone along with this, even participating in the anti-Semitic idiocy. He has been attacked and rejected by Canadian Jewish organizations.

Readers of The Rebel should be aware of the great work done by Ezra Levant.

Safe to say only Jay will comment on this one, Jimmy boy will hide from it.

I would fear a progressive more than an ISIS terrorist, at least the ISIS terrorist is upfront about what they want.

Speaking of Court Cases involving Muslims, I did some research into whats going on in Kevin Johnson’s Hate Speech case. I read over 100 comments and over 90 were not in favor of Johnson being charged.
More than one apparent Lawyer said that he should win because the Muslim Attorney General of Ontario made some mistakes in his haste to condemn Johnson.
They took away Johnson’s Social Media, so he can’t make a living. The Trial is next spring. If he wins, I hope he can nail them for millions, because at 45 years old , its hard to start over.
The other interesting thing to note was over 100 Ontario people are worried about losing Free Speech just like us. Maybe there id hope after all.

@Ken Martinson.
Very good question. That wouldn’t be a surprise when we now have migrants who get a total nervous breakdown when they see a graffiti.

When M-103 becomes law, will Ezra will get life in prison, without parole for 25 years.? One has to wonder.

A commenter writes: “I guess the fun and games are already beginning. What has our Canada become?”

I thought Canada was already a pretty good place to be.

How can it happen in Canada that a judge can get away with a ruling like that? He sounds like a Sharia court judge to me. I didn’t know we were already living under sharia law. So our judicial system is already infiltrated.
How about if he had scrawled ‘no more Islam’, could a judge in Canada put you away for that?
I guess the fun and games are already beginning. What has our Canada become.

Carole Masse, hear, hear.

Somehow having a hate-message spray painted on my bus stop bothers me. I did not have any discussion with the person who spray-painted the message and it seems like an “in your face” message of hate.

On a discussion line like this, on the other hand, I can chat. I see the messages of hate, but I also see the messages o dialogue.

Jay Kelly. Nobody here needs your reprimands and propaganda. We are all adults and I, for one, am not with you in this. Whatever your “this” is. As for my own comments being dangerous, come and sue me, my dear. I will give you the ride of your life.
commented 2017-09-25 23:41:30 -0400
Ron Joseph, thank you for your support, but Ezra Levant does not need you apologizing for him. He does alright on his own.
commented 2017-09-25 23:34:27 -0400
I’m hoping that people are not all that stupid and when they get a sense of the lopsided justice that prefers Islam and Muslims to all other religions, they’ll act accordingly. Even if we couldn’t say anything derogatory about Islam or Muslims, you can still shop at a non-Muslim store rather than one owned by a Muslim. You can still choose the company you keep and exclude Muslims from your close circle of friends when you can’t really trust them. You can choose not to put yourself in a position in which any Muslim could cause you strife. Sometimes, it’s not about what you say, it’s about what you do.

Among all the negative items that were discussed on the show, there were also some positive things.
Ezra was at his best.
Eric gave a star performance.
All the Rebel comments were well thought out.
Great Show

Yvon Bolduc, please to not perpetuate this myth that Muslim Quebecers are somehow less loyal that the rest. We are in this together

Well done to have someone from Québec. I had often messaged Esra to give them support concerning the efforts from islamists to obtain a gag order on Quebecers.
commented 2017-09-25 22:31:31 -0400
See, Carole Masse, your choice of words is not only hurtful but dangerous.

You genuinely do not know that “Muslims” practice a certain religion. Muslims, or those who are Islamic, are not of a particular ethnic group.

I am not a traitor for saying this! Canadian Muslims are African, American, Arab, European, Australian, and (if I might say) Newfoundlanders.

When you portray yourself as a bigot, you portray yourself as a hater of Canadians.

Somehow I suspect you do not hate all Canadians.

Carol Masse.. I echo your sentiments.!!

Jay Kelly,

You forgot to complete your last sentence. I know you meant it to read:

“…they have been asked to become judges of sharia law.”

Glad to help with the edit.

@Jay Kelly
You are one of the traitors. A traitor against equal and fair justice. “No more muslims” is a statement about the level of immigration of a certain ethnicity, no more, no less. It is not hate of muslims. But obviously, you can’t make the difference between prison time for this innocent comment and acquittement for an ISIS supporter. I will not answer to your inevitable absurd reply to this. Go to hell, even if you probably have no idea between right and wrong.
commented 2017-09-25 22:18:22 -0400
Well someone, as usual, is not up on their reading and doesn’t “understand” that a non muslim is not innocent.
commented 2017-09-25 22:08:19 -0400
Carole Masse reveals a lot about many Rebel readers when she says “I did not know that we had Muslim judges”.

The Canadian judiciary is made up of citizens in good standing who have shown themselves through years of experience to be familiar with the Canadian judicial system and to show those human virtues such that they could deliver just judgements, in accord with Canadian law.

Canadian Muslims are only about five or six percent of the overall population. Within that population are some extraordinarily educated men and women who have not only studied law and practiced law, but who have exemplified themselves in the practice of Canadian law to such an extent that they have been asked to become judges.

Grateful to have the Rebel as we will be facing darker days ahead.

We are witnessing the beginning of the end of the human race. What replaces it, are already making the new laws that will expedite this ending.
