Raheel Raza: Canada needs a commission on "radical Islamist ideology"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I spoke with Raheel Raza about how the West should respond to Islamism in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack

With terrorist attacks occurring frequently across the West, Politicians still offer little more than platitudes.

WATCH my video to see why Raheel thinks Canada needs to open a Commission on Radical Islamist Ideology

Tommy Robinson is without a doubt the go to guy for the low down on what happens to a country when Islam is allowed to take over. Britain is what we can expect here in Canada in short order if Trudeau is allowed to continue to flood us with Islam, because…..Islam is the problem. There is no nice way to say it.

I don’t think radicalization is a simple as tit for tat Mathew K. History and the followed demands in the Koran make that pretty clear. This goes wayyyyyy back. It is Islam that promotes hate and death to non Muslims. They have done it for centuries. They were born offended and teach their young to be offended. Our response to it has not always been a useful. We have just been in damage control, but soon will have to act in definitive ways to beat back the onslaught of Islam. We are now backed into a corner.

The war machine is alive and unfortunately well in Washington. Trump has to fight against their interference. McCain and his side kick are as invested as the Democrats. It has never been more obvious, The more they screech about Trump and have orgasms over the strikes in Syria the more they show their true colours and identify themselves.
Eva Bartlett has some very interesting things to say, that is for sure. What we are being fed on Syria is not the entire truth to say the least. The war machine is global and bigger than any one leader. I don’t know how Trump is going to make out with such interference.

Matthew K in case you missed it , they are at war with us , and why are they attacking European countries who have opened their doors and given them everything and kissed their asses so much? Your excuses are sad and do not reflect reality.
commented 2017-06-01 00:42:42 -0400
Matthew K i do not care about your sources, and most of them are liberal cesspools , especially Brown.
And i gave you an example of terrorists killing half that amount in three days and you still think it compares? Muslims have been doing this for over a century , how do you think the middle east became so Islamic? And when exactly did the Christians in middle eastern countries bomb them? And please explain the Philippines if you say they are only responding to past aggression. What do your sources say about that and are they as ready to give Israel the same consideration when they respond to constant aggression? Are you? I highly doubt it , and the reason the war is taking so long is apologists like you.

Bill Elder, I completely agree with you. This war has been great for the arms manufacturers and Western leaders pushing their geopolitical agenda under the guise of homeland security.

Drew, obviously you chose not to read my sources. Yes, the dollar figures do represent decades. Future decades, not decades past. The deaths, however are all related to the war on terror.

As Bill inferred, for every 1 civilian killed by Western forces in the ME, how many of their family members ‘radicalize?’ We do the same thing, don’t we? A terrorist attack happens, we strike back. What, you thought the Muslims would just accept the deaths of their family and not want to retaliate? Funny world you live in.

How has ‘the left’ stopped any bombs from falling. Obama dropped more bombs than Bush and broadened drone strikes. Now Trump drops a MOAB. Guess what? Nothing changed.
commented 2017-05-31 01:28:22 -0400
Matthew K you do realize the DHS in America has stopped hundreds of attacks and some have been thwarted in Canada as well, are we to ignore that?
commented 2017-05-31 01:27:19 -0400
Matthew K what does the cost matter anyway? And those numbers encompass many decades, if not , they are full of BS. And they encompass many countries and those deaths were not all due to the war on terror. And in many places the people are victims of both sides , not just one, so please spare us the one sided inference as it is dishonest. There were 256 people killed in one attack in one day, so 1000 for a month is not a huge number in comparison. But keep on looking at only what you want to see. on 3 specific days in april and may there were a total of 407-523 people killed in terror attacks in only 3 specific places. So which is worse?
commented 2017-05-31 01:19:33 -0400
Matthew K and how much have the Muslims spent? And if not for the left and the marxists , the war on terror would be over.
commented 2017-05-31 00:12:49 -0400
Mathew K – I concur with you the globalists war on terror has been lucrative, but only for a small cadre of armorers and infrastructure rebuilding corporations – troops got ground up for no gains, billions in ordnance expended, Citizens lost privacy and other civil rights when we were put under quasi martial law in "post 9/11 world™ ", the taxpayer was pooched underwriting these protracted quasi-wars.

Afghan was stupid and the whole PNAC doctrine in the ME has been a disaster for everyone but those at the to of the pyramid financing this cluster frig. Now the Globalists wonder how these people they have been bombing to hell for almost 2 decades got “radicalized”.

The radicalized fallout of this ME policy would not be migrating here if we hadn’t poked our nose into their stupid tribal squabbling.

Matthew K,
There is a search tool, I’m logged in via laptop.
Haven’t read your sources yet, don’t worry I will; I wanted to listen to Ezra’s report,now it’s late.
What sources are you asking me for? I think I’m missing something. If you are referring to the post where I confirmed Maurice explained how he tabulated his numbers…it’s available using the search tool.
Good to know you are not a pseudonym.

As for the war on terror, nothing I can do to stop it.
commented 2017-05-30 23:16:08 -0400
This sounds like McCarthyism – All Canada needs is to enforce its division of chrch and state secularism AND the hate laws EQUALLY – no special exemptions from racism, hate preaching, death threats or pushing religious dogmas on people who don’t want them. Secular schools, not Islamic prayer centers.
commented 2017-05-30 23:04:55 -0400
Mathew K, have yourself a wonderful evening.
commented 2017-05-30 22:53:46 -0400
Tammie:

1) No, there’s not. A search bar, that is. At least not on mobile. Sources, please.

2). I trust you read my sources? Funny, there were a couple of requests for them and even an accusation that they were exaggerated. Are you at all surprised those numbers are not made up? We’re talking millions upon millions of lives. And trillions upon trillions of dollars.

Dare I ask again: how’s that war on terror going?

3). No, I am not Jack.
commented 2017-05-30 22:24:23 -0400
Matthew K, your writing style; expressions and original lack of citations reminded me a lot of a fellow named Jack Carter. Jack will use pseudonyms at different times. So, you are not Jack?
commented 2017-05-30 22:19:49 -0400
Matthew K, no wading necessary. There is a wonderful search tool on this site.
commented 2017-05-30 22:06:18 -0400
Huh. In my quest to research some cold, hard facts about my ‘subjective’ statement, I came across a few Tommy Robinson videos. I stand by my words.

Still waiting for the sources on your numbers…

“more often than not, all I see is hate, fear, and propaganda.”

That’s a completely subjective call, Mathew K; based on perception, not cold, hard facts.
commented 2017-05-30 20:32:34 -0400
Maurice,

What version of history do you ascribe to? Wasn’t it Bush who stood on the deck of that carrier with the “Mission Accomplished!” banner behind him?

I agree with you on one thing: the political will does not exist to solve the problem. Especially not when there are billions worth of arms-deals to be made. Tell me more about Tommy Robinson, his name rings a bell, but I haven’t looked into him. I’d be curious to know your thoughts on Eva Bartlett.

Also, you’re right. I have made assumptions about The Rebel followers, and should keep those thoughts to myself. That said, I do somewhat keep up with The Rebel if only to know what others are thinking. The problem with not “frequenting websites I don’t like” is that I become less educated about the world (and country) I live in as a result. I’m sure there is some truth on this site. Somewhere. But, more often than not, all I see is hate, fear, and propaganda.
commented 2017-05-30 20:23:27 -0400
Tammie,

I was just following Maurice’s lead by not citing sources. You suggest there are sources for his numbers, yet they don’t appear on any of the countless comments he has made in all the Rebel videos. I’m sure they exist, but I don’t have the mental capacity to wade through the trash on this site to find it.

Obviously you asking me for citations did not “create a problem” (your words), because I readily offered them up to you. My statement had less to do with the facts I was offering and more to do with the expectation that these facts will not be accepted here.

Who is this Jack you speak of? This is not the first time I’ve been accused of being someone else in The Rebel comment section. Not everyone in Canada buys every word from Levant’s mouth, so it shouldn’t surprise you that there are more than one person who will point out alternative viewpoints than what is spewed on this site.
commented 2017-05-30 20:22:29 -0400
Mathew K, I don’t know how you can rationally make such an incredibly insulting blanket statement, “Oh, right. It’s the Rebel. Facts don’t matter here”. If you despise us so much, why do you bother to come and post your comments here? I don’t frequent websites I don’t like. And your claim is patently untrue. All I care about is objective truth. In other words, FACTS! Admittedly I don’t have ALL the facts. Nobody does. I post the facts that I know. If I get them wrong, I actually appreciate it if someone can clearly demonstrate with irrefutable evidence where I’m wrong. That’s the only way I can stay on course. Yes, we take a side on the Issues. So do you. I report the cold, hard numbers because I believe knowing the numbers, in other words being informed, one is better able to prepare for that which will inevitably effect all Canadians if we continue on our current course. Could I be wrong? Of course I could. In fact, I hope I am… but I don’t think I am. I’m not posting the numbers out of any need to have my ego stroked. I’m posting them to inform the reader. I already looked up the numbers so I don’t have to post them for myself.
commented 2017-05-30 20:03:36 -0400
Matthew K, my comments about citing remind me of a conversation with Jack Carter. Jack, is that you?
commented 2017-05-30 20:02:00 -0400
I will review your links, thanks.
Matthew K, you should have cited sources in the first place; this gives the reader the opportunity to review article etc…in it’s entirety, and determine if you have omitted facts or caveats. Asking you to cite should not create a problem if your statements are supported by facts… saying facts don’t matter here sounds really pouty to me, and uncalled for.
commented 2017-05-30 19:51:10 -0400
And what if my facts don’t meet your version of facts? Then they no longer remain facts? Oh, right. It’s The Rebel. Facts don’t matter here.

$4.8 trillion on the War on Terror: https://www.brown.edu/web/documents/nosearch/2016CostsofWar.pdf

Okay, I admit, I used past tense in my statement where should have used present (and future) tense. But even $4.8 trillion is less than Trump’s $6 trillion spend suggestion (http://www.politico.com/blogs/donald-trump-congress-speech-fact-check/2017/02/war-middle-east-cost-235539)

1.3 Million Civilians Killed: http://www.psr.org/assets/pdfs/body-count.pdf

1,000 in March alone: https://www.democracynow.org/2017/3/27/more_than_1_000_civilians_killed

+10 Million civilians displaced:

Hard to come up with actual stats on that specifically on the war on terror, but considering there are over 65 million displaced people globally, I figured 10 million is a good (though likely low) estimate:

How’s that war on terror going? Wasn’t the ‘Mission Accomplished?’

“Mission Accomplished” was Obama’s claim. Sticking to that narrative (lie) for the sake of political gain indirectly cause the death of four US citizens in Libya. You’re absolutely correct to point out that what we’re currently doing isn’t working. Political correctness, pacifying and kowtowing to the Islamists, and pushing this Islamophobia BS will never work. It just emboldens them. And MSM sure isn’t helping. I’m sorry to say that I don’t believe the political will is there to solve the problem. Those who do try are the ones who are ostracized, marginalized and find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Tommy Robinson is a case in point. I don’t actually think it will be solved. Things will keep getting worse. In the mean time, I guess I’ll keep posting the cold, hard numbers…. at least until they come for me.
commented 2017-05-30 19:03:55 -0400
Matthew K, please cite your sources as others have requested, I am interested & asking you as well. Maurice has already explained in a previous post where he gets his numbers from.
commented 2017-05-30 18:57:02 -0400
Creating a commission to look into radical Islam under Trudeau’s mandate would be pointless. He’d stack it with Muslims and Liberals and their NDP fellow travellers. The commission’s report would tell us that we need MORE Muslim immigration, the more radical the better, and that Islamaphobia is the biggest problem in the land, which should be remedied by immediately replacing our old laws with Sharia.
commented 2017-05-30 18:56:27 -0400
Mathew K your numbers aren’t real. They are highly exaggerated. And if they aren’t exaggerated show us proof.
commented 2017-05-30 18:39:20 -0400
Those who think islam will reform probably believe in miracles.
commented 2017-05-30 18:32:48 -0400
Maurice: I, too, am simply pointing out cold, hard numbers. My question is not rhetorical. 15 years, countless lives, trillions of dollars, Afghanistan to Iraq to Yemen to Pakistan to Syria, Taliban & Al Queda still around, ISIS formed, terrorist attacks continue unabated.

How’s that war on terror going? Wasn’t the ‘Mission Accomplished?’

I can’t solve the problem but I can tell you what isn’t working…
