March 5, 2019: I have some bad news for you today. And I need to ask for your help. Watch my new interview with John, above, to hear what he told me.
December 4, 2018: Ezra Levant speaks with John Alabi, the Christian landlord who was taken to court by Muslim tenants (and lost.) John still needs our help!
March 4, 2018: John Alabi is a hardworking immigrant to Canada. His Muslim tenants took him to court for not taking off his shoes in their unit (which is HIS property!) And they won. You asked us to help John appeal this decision — Meet John, a shy, humble patriot who talks to Ezra Levant about his case and thanks everyone for helping him.
We’ve spent over $8,000 preparing the paperwork for the appeal, but the actual hearing hasn’t happened yet. That will surely cost $5,000 to $10,000 or even more. Click here to make a donation now.
UPDATE: Time to fight the Sharia fine
July 4, 2017: We heard from Rebel supporters who said they wanted to help John, but not by paying his Sharia fine. So, we went back to John with your feedback. And John has agreed to fight back in the ring against Ontario's Human Rights Tribunal, under one condition: We help him pay his legal fees.
The total cost of his legal fees which include the Request for Reconsideration, Divisional Court and Appeals will be $8000+HST ($9040). Please help pay for the appeal by donating below.
I thought there was a separation between mosque and state in Canada.
I was wrong.
Now, failure to be sharia-compliant -- on your own property -- can result in an enormous fine!
John Alabi, a 52-year-old Ontario man, is being issued a sharia ticket for $12,000 by the province’s Human Rights Tribunal.
His sin? He didn’t take his shoes off in his Muslim tenants’ unit where they prayed while showing the space to potential occupants.
John is a Christian who came to Canada 22 years ago from Nigeria. Since then, he’s followed our laws and worked hard, currently carrying two jobs to ensure his family is cared for. John is the sort of man every Canadian should be proud of; but instead, he’s being labelled a human rights violator because he refused to submit to his tenants’ religion!
So now, in addition to paying Walid Madkour and his wife Heba Ismail six thousand dollars each for injury to their feelings and dignity, John must also take an e-course on “Human Rights in Rental Housing.” John told me he's worried his case will set precedent for other landlords who will also have to become sharia-compliant.
After meeting with John, it was hard not to be affected.
When did a failure to remove ones' shoes in a Muslim prayer space become against the law in Canada? When did failure to make your property sharia-compliant become punishable by fine? Isn’t there supposed to be a separation of mosque and state in this country? If so, why is Sharia law being pushed on John to the tune of $12,000?
So, this is what we’re going to do: We’re crowdfunding John's sharia ticket.
Honestly, I hate the idea of money going to these Muslim bullies who are inflicting their worldview onto an unwilling individual; but I hate the idea of John fighting this battle alone even more.
