Sharia creeps into Ottawa City Hall: Oppress yourself, sister!

David MenziesMission Specialist

The City of Ottawa recently held a public event at City Hall celebrating the hijab – an Islamist head-covering many Muslim women consider oppressive. An organization calling itself, “City for All Women Initiative” asked non-Muslim women in the nation’s capital to offer support for the hijab by wearing one regardless of their faith, to show solidarity.

Unlike so many of the countries where the hijab is dominant, this is a free country so if you want to wear one, wear one. Why ask for approval from the municipal government?

Only Islam demands this. It’s sharia creep. Tolerance is never enough. Affirmation and celebration is demanded from our government and far too often, it’s given.

The claim the hijab is fundamental to the religion has been challenged and disproven many times including most recently in a Sun column by Tarek Fatah who explains what happened when Iran became the Iranian Islamic Republic. Maybe life under the Shah wasn’t paradise but this clothing decree was the first taste of hell for Persians once Islamists were calling the shots in Tehran.

What do feminists in the western world have to say about this? The silence is deafening.

If female solidarity means embracing symbols of female oppression, why stop at the hijab? Why not Burka or Niqab Day? Maybe a day to honour the chastity belt? National Foot-Binding Day anyone? Let’s go all out and champion female genital mutilation. Progressives will call me “culturally insensitive” for using that terminology. They prefer “F.G.B.” – female genital beautification.

As we “celebrate” the hijab, think about how some Canadian cities are even making it part of the police uniform. In a generation or two, perhaps cities in the west will be holding rallies in support of "female genital beautification".

And I quote Tarek Fatah “The fact is, the niqab and I would argue, the Hijab, are today not just medieval symbols of female servitude: they also serve as flags of Islamism, dictated by the Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab world. How could the covering of a woman’s head or face which is not a requirement of the Qur’an, end up as the most defining symbol of Islam.”
I’m inclined to believe Tarek as he is the expert in these matters.

Karin Bougie,
That must’ve been sickening to see.

Plus knowing that the lady being wrapped in a fabric tomb also has no clitoris (a clitoridectomy), and possibly had an excision (removal of the labia minora), and possibly suffered infibulation (narrowing of the vaginal opening and sealing the vulva by cutting and repositioning the inner or outer labia)

Poor woman (and 100s of millions more).
And she’s probably too brainwashed and subdued from childhood to know how fucked up that is.

And the Irrationals (lefties, Liberals) support that.
Wretched blindness!

I will not celebrate any head or face coverings, thank you. I have been to Egypt, Turkey and other places where you see the nice family walking on the beach on a hot day, dad and little boy in shorts and sandals and bringing up the rear is mom in full black burka and girls hair covered.
What is so expressive about that, Sean?
They say it isn’t ‘religious’, but ‘cultural’…… sure…….but when a woman is covering her face or even her hair, because it’s easier to deal with the men in their life, it’s a culture that doesn’t need to be excepted here.

I don’t mind the hajib, but if any of that crazy Sharia law should show up at city hall, protest like hell!

Drew Wakariuk:

Equating FGM to circumcision is an admission of ignorance of human anatomy, or of blind partisan idiocy (even worse).

For those who don’t know (Sean Penson): Cutting off a piece of the clitoris is the same as cutting off a piece of the male glans. Cutting off a piece of the foreskin is the same as removal of some of the hood (about 5% of FGM cases).

You’re evil for supporting this barbaric torture, Sean. An evil, wicked fool

Sean you said Hutterites could not have that right , so go F*CK yourself twerp. We will stand up against the barbarians while you cower like a worm.
commented 2016-03-12 00:48:25 -0500
Please quit equating male circumcision to FGM , they are not the same by any stretch of the imagination.

Roland S. Are you serious? You still have it wrong, the hijab is not required in their religion. These women probably have beautiful hair so why would they want to cover it? If they wear the hijab my bet is on the husband who demands it but perfectly OK for him to show his hair.
Sean Penson….are you for real? Are you a woman hater or what? I think you are because you said in another post we have no business fighting ISIS & we don’t care what happens there (rapes, sex slaves, decapitations, stoning, etc) & now you’re OK with the oppression of women ( niqab, hijab, burka) that for the most part women wear because of their controlling husband who classify their wives as second class citizens. Shame on you big time Sean Penson for agreeing with this Middle Ages mentality.
I wish I would be approached by that group, because that would be my chance to give them a piece of my mind & what they can do with their hijab.

The Islamist organization that initiated this farce, CAWI, is enjoying tax-free charitable status, lavish federal, provincial and municipal grants, and their mandate is to concoct these Islamist “events” to indoctrinate Canadian women to follow Islamic ways. They prey on poor and vulnerable women, bribing them to participate in their farce with free food and transit fares. They are planning several other pro-Islam events in the near future. They run franchises in several cities across Canada. Why is there no investigation into who’s really behind this group? It’s a safe bet that various Islamist extremist organizations are pulling their strings. If that is the case, then they need to be stripped of charitable status and funding like any other terrorist organization.

Sean Penson. What is a hiqab?
Are you stupid or just a dunce?
commented 2016-03-11 20:38:43 -0500
This is not repressive, it’s very expressive and it proves how loving and multicultural we are. Harper’s days are done. Racism and Islamaphobia have no place in the Canada of 2016. A woman’s right to wear a hiqab, hijab or burqa must be protected and expanded.

National honour-killing day.
commented 2016-03-11 18:20:23 -0500
Good job on reporting this David…
I never knew until recent years that there was religious reasons for these head wrappings, just thought they were hiding bad hair they were ashamed of cause they didn’t take care, procrastinated or maybe they had infectious head rash, bald spots they were concealing etc.
Another thing is maybe they had unsanitary head lice for lack of hygiene etc.

This is a passive attempt to trick other women into dawning the symbol of repression. Anyone who grew up in Canada should know better than to entertain this evil. The ones who won’t know better are those who are going to university.

In other news in Mindanao in the Phillipines….a former CBC reporter is scheduled to get his head sliced off like a pot roast if $28 million Canadian is not paid as a ransom to his religion of peace captors….there are three other hostages.

“Black Jack” Pershing got demoted over this…but when policing the moslems of Mindanao was on his watch he captured a dozen…..set two aside to serve as witnesses….shot the rest by firing squad and fed their bodies to pigs……he sent the selected witnesses back to the others with a warning what was in store for them……it pacified the uprising……like I said ….he got demoted over it…..the region has been in a state of terrorist uprising ever since the religion of peace arrived ….they just can’t seem to get along with the Roman Catholic majority……just saying.

Well articulated.
You should track down that university teacher who thinks FGM is beautification, and interview them.

Maryann Kenney,
I love your brave spirit.
We need more freedom-loving Canadians like you.

Sarah Teamedwardjace,
If you support the atrocities of Islam, you are a sick puppy.
Here is some advice, watch some of Mona Walter’s vids on youtube,

Hi Lad,

Please check out the following (you can look it up at the link at the end):
The Quran

Quran (33:59) – “Tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them…”
Quran (24:31) – “And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children . . .” The woman is not only supposed to cover herself, except with relatives, but to look down, so as to avoid making eye-contact with men.
Source: 👀

Seems pretty clear to me! Islamic women must cover themselves.
commented 2016-03-11 15:34:45 -0500

There is nowhere in the Quar’an where it states that a woman has to wear head covering. The only reason they do, is because their husbands tell them to. They do not trust each other. The number one pastime for Muslim males is Rape.

The fact that the Government is paying these inbred morons $200,000 per year, per family, plus medical and unemployment, is enough to make one sick. Why should we be asked to assimilate with them, just to make them feel at home. They are home! All they have to do now is to rid themselves of the parasites, namely us, and the Country is theirs.

Thank You Master Justin, for looking after the new Canadistans. I am sure Mommy is proud of you.

The police chief gave a speech at the event. I had to restrain myself from yelling “they are never going to like you!”

The Ottawa Police Service is constantly sucking up to the social justice loons, trying to win their favour. They don’t seem to understand that, in the eyes of the social justice left, they will always be evil. No matter what the police do, there will still be marches, protests, and harsh criticism of the police as “racist,” sexist" and oppressors.

But, like the nerd with the crush on the cool girl, they think that, if they keep showing how much they really care, eventually they can win them over.

Well, everyone, while Justin is busy hugging and squeezing another Muslim lover in Washington right now, I can hardly wait until Donald Trump becomes the next U.S.A’s REAL president. Just watch Justine crumple like the fatuous non-entity that he is….oh, and maybe useless Gerald Butts at the same time. It will be the best thing that could ever happen to Canada economically and ideologically.
commented 2016-03-11 14:40:58 -0500
FGM is not the equivalent of male circumcision, it is closer to penectomy. It is a barbaric(sorry Justin) act which removes the pleasure centre of a woman so as to turn her into a form of sex slave. To allow it to be called FGB is an attempt to impose some sick people’s views on others. I propose the Islamic leaders who support this attack on women to subject themselves to a similar process. I’ll hold my breath until that happens-turning blue-…………..aargh.

Sorry Maryann,
I meant to say “good to hear that you take this stand”

Tell me, would these same non-Muslim women get their genitalia mutilated in solidarity to Muslim women?

Get a to hear that you take this stand.
