1. Liberal MP apologizes, rescinds award to man labelled purveyor of anti-Semitism

OTTAWA - A Liberal MP has apologized and rescinded a certificate of appreciation she presented last week to a man a Jewish advocacy group calls a purveyor of anti-Semitism.

Mississauga-Erin Mills MP Iqra Khalid says she was unaware of some of the views held in the past by Amin El-Maoued, the public relations chief of Palestine House, when she gave him a certificate of appreciation for his volunteer work during a barbecue in her riding.

B'nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn sent Khalid a letter this week, demanding she rescind the certificate.

The letter alleged that El-Maoued led a July 2017 rally “laden with hate-filled and anti-Semitic slogans," including chants of "Israel and Hitler are the same.”

2. Dr. Abdur-Rafay of Hizb-ut-Tahrir America: The West Has Launched a New Crusade

At Hizb-ut-Tahrir America's 2018 Khilafa Conference, Dr. Abdur-Rafay said that the West has "launched a new Crusade – a much deadlier attack, with profound consequences, than just physical wounds," and that "the bloody Crusades to spread Christianity… was now re-energized to infuse secular liberalism upon Muslims." He accused Western governments and the media of linking any act of violence by a Muslim to extremism coming from a violent political ideology of Islam, and said that this narrative is a means of forcing Muslims to condemn violence, to prove their patriotism, and to adopt Western values. Abdur-Rafay said that this assault seeks to produce a "good Muslim" who believes in a secular, "American" Islam. The conference took place on April 29 in Palos Hills, Illinois.

3. Four clerics killed in eastern Turkey in armed attack amid imams' debate

Four clerics have been killed after an argument between imams at a town hall ended with an armed assault in eastern Turkey in which the assailant also died after committing suicide.

Demirören News Agency reported that the local administration of the Erzincan province’s Tercan district convened for an ordinary monthly meeting on Aug. 17.

An employee of the mufti’s office, identified only as Fatih A., stormed the meeting with a gun amid a heated debate over his request for annual leave.

Imam Rasim Kılıç and preacher Ersin Kağan died on the scene, while four imams who were wounded were hospitalized.

5. Manchester mosque sermon “called for armed jihad”, say scholars

A sermon at the mosque where the Manchester bomber worshipped called for the support of armed jihadist fighters, according to two Muslim scholars.

An imam at Didsbury Mosque in December 2016 was recorded praying for "victory" for "our brothers and sisters right now in Aleppo and Syria and Iraq".

Scholars Usama Hasan and Shaykh Rehan said it referred to "military jihad".

The imam, Mustafa Graf, says his sermon did not call for armed jihad and he has never preached radical Islam.

But now the mosque has denied it supports, “military jihad.“

A mosque where the Manchester Arena bomber worshipped denies encouraging people to “fight in any military struggle” following a BBC report.

A sermon by Imam Mustafa Graf at Didsbury Mosque in 2016 called for the support of fighters in Syria, according to two Muslim scholars.

It was delivered six months before Salman Abedi killed 22 people after an Ariana Grande concert.

Mr Graf declined to be interviewed but denied preaching Islamic extremism.

Didsbury Mosque said it had “launched an investigation into the sermon to identify any issues raised by the BBC report” as part of its regulations.

6. Courageous moment brave Iranian woman confronts a cleric after he told her to “fix her hijab” or she’ll get arrested

Provocative footage has emerged of the moment a Muslim woman challenges a cleric who ordered her to fix her hijab on a public street in Iran.

The man can be seen telling the woman to “fix your hijab or I'll get you arrested” when the woman bravely rips the veil off her head in anger and walks away.

The Facebook group My Stealthy Freedom, which uploaded the video on Friday, described the cleric's behaviour as “humiliating and arrogant.”

“This is the wrong culture that has been telling women for forty years now. Those who want to conquer women always betray the concept of struggle and freedom,” the caption reads.

8. Austrian Populist Interior Minister: Criminalise Sharia Law Advocacy

Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) Interior Minister Herbert Kickl has floated the idea of charging radical Islamic adherents if they advocate for Sharia law over the constitutional law of Austria.

The populist Interior Minister laid out the proposal as part of a programme to fight against the spread of radical Islamic extremism in Austria, Kronen Zeitung reports.

“Those who want to pass the Sharia law over the Austrian laws and want to bring upon us a theocracy in place of our democracy belong in court!” Kickl, who has been long known for his fierce firebrand rhetoric, said.

The move also follows campaign promises made by FPÖ leader and current Vice-Chancellor Heinz Christian Strache who vowed to ban Islamism in January of last year arguing it was, “antagonistic to women, antiliberal and corresponds to a fascist worldview.

10. Huge crowds BOO and yell “clown” at officials during state funeral for 18 of 38 Genoa bridge victims after discovery of year-old report warning it could collapse - but they cheer Italy's new populist rulers

More victims of the Genoa bridge collapse were laid to rest today as relatives attended the state funeral amid growing anger in Italy over the disaster which claimed so many lives.

Families of 18 of the 38 victims gathered for the funeral service in the city centre where coffins were lined up before the alter draped in white roses and tended to by inconsolable loved ones.

But tears have turned to anger as mourners demand to know how the tragedy was allowed to happen after the emergence of a report by motorway operator Autostrade warning about the condition of the bridge just last year.

Loud boos and jeers were heard as Italy's former leader Maurizio Martina arrived for the service. His Democratic Party was in charge until last year's election.

On the other hand, families of the victims of the collapsed bridge welcome Matteo Salvini:

@Dirk Kanis YouTube commentator Ann Barnhardt did exactly what you suggest in 2011 in one of her videos. She read horrific quotes from an English edition of the Quran – which she had marked beforehand via bacon (!) bookmarks – explained why these passages were appalling, then ripped the offending pages out and burned them in a glass bowl. Here is a version of the video which seems to be somewhat altered from the original – the music and Quran verses starting about 2:30 were not there before – but after a few minutes, we get back to the original video. I’m astonished that YouTube still allows the video to be viewed and even commented upon given the political correctness they have pushed for the last couple of years….

I challenge anybody to pick up a genuine copy of the Quran…………….

And burn it.

I challenge anybody to pick up a genuine copy of the Quran, not one of the new censored comic books, a real copy of the original. Go to Part 2, the second half, close your eye’s and open any page ,at random and start to read. See how far down the page you get before you see Death or Killing!

Islam the religion of peace?….I Don’t think so.

If the BBC can wise up, maybe there is hope for the CBC.

Who am I kidding. The CBC will remain as dull and extremist left while screaming that they are the voice of all Canadians until hell freezes over.

Thanks for the update Allan Peterson… I also sense that Maxime Bernier has an excellent chance to take on the Smiling Chipmunk if true Conservatives act fast enough…

I listened to the Roy Green show today. He asked if people supported Maxime Bernier’s remarks on multi-culti. Every single caller did. There might be hope if the Mighty Max keeps on keeping on.

2.“He accused Western governments and the media of linking any act of violence by a Muslim to extremism coming from a violent political ideology of Islam…”

Which is, of course, the only kind of islam there is.

The western media is working feverishly to avoid any connectiojnof islam to silence. 180 degrees wrong. Again.

Crusades were only launched against muslim aggression. Just like now.
