So the Canadian Senate’s committee on security and defence has called for the government to, quote, “investigate the options that are available for the training and certification of imams in Canada.”
I understand what they’re trying to do.
There are extremist imams in Canada who are radicalizing young Muslims, turning them against Canadian society, and in extreme cases, weaponizing them, turning them into terrorists.
The problem is very real. The Rebel has set up a whole website, documenting these extremist imams, called CanadianJihad.ca.
But certifying imams, certifying the clergy, is a terrible idea. We don’t believe in governments getting into the religion business in Canada.
I think the real answer to this problem is obvious. But it takes courage.
First of all, we need to keep foreign government money out of Canadian mosques.
You know that Muslim high school in Toronto that refused to play against a team because it had a girl on it? They get money from the Saudis.
But secondly, we need to screen our immigrants better.
