Vancouver imam condemns Halloween, Remembrance Day as “reprehensible”

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Vancouver Imam Younas Kathrada has made headlines for all the wrong reasons and a troubling October 30th post on his personal Facebook page is just the latest example.

Responding to an invitation for a Halloween related gathering at Victoria’s Masjid al-Iman mosque, Kathrada described Canadian holidays and traditions, from Halloween to Remembrance Day, to Thanksgiving and Christmas as “reprehensible” and “based on falsehood”.

Is this the kind of multiculturalism we want, or an example of tolerance in this country?

One can only hope not, yet, digging into this Imam’s past, we find all too familiar stories.

Watch as I share some of that history with you and provide samples of anti-semitic remarks that led to a police investigation for a hate crime and drew condemnation from other Muslim leaders.

Canadians take pride in the fact that we don’t force immigrants to conform to Canadian culture, but historically, almost all immigrant groups take to Canadian culture quickly.

But why is it that Imams like Kathrada insist on driving a wedge between their communities and Canadian culture? 

Surely this is the very problem sweeping across Europe, one that we've documented in the UK where self-segregated Islamic enclaves pose real concerns.

Canadian's shouldn’t be blinded by our own tolerance. Imams like Kathrada may be exercising their religious beliefs, but when it’s accompanied by the rejection of Canadian traditions, holidays and societal norms, its not what's best for the nation.

TruDoh! is probably figuring out some way to award this bozo $10 million- after all some Infidel might haul off and give the camel humper a well deserved slug in the nose and a boot in the butt but even if that doesn’t happen it might have so he deserves it-right ? On the other hand, maybe if his followers in the Mosque don’t kick him out they should all be awarded one way tickets back to the Middle East.

True apparently! Word has it our Crime Minister was in Montreal last night for a concert where he and Sophie made themselves the centre of attention. And he didn’t show up for work today to boot! Two points here. If I had attempted what Jihadi Justin did at that concert, I would most certainly have been arrested. Not showing up for work would result in discipline or dismissal!

Considering he dresses up everyday as a clown pedophile.

Muslims are such a joyless bunch. Why did we invite them into our country again?
‘Canadians by residence’. Not good enough for me. It takes more than that to be a Canadian, and I do not accept people who refuse to assimilate and don’t have enough respect for our ways to not insult them. What an ignorant, ungrateful man, and he resides in Canada because why?
Ex Muslims yes, fundamentalists no.

Canadianophobia! An admission by an Islamist of the intent of non-integration into the society that graciously allowed them in. Where art thou Jihadi Justin?
