This Guy Isn't Helping Stamp Out Radicalism In Canadian Muslim Youth
"I can't believe how stupid people are. I refused to acknowledge Palestinian suicide bombings against Zionists on buses are terrorist acts, and I still got elected."
I checked out Ontario Blogs a few days ago and ran across this piece at Cherniak on Politics. I'm very non-Partisan as far as Canadian Politics goes, however, I hate the scum sucking communist NDP, and the Liberals are the reason we have terrorist cells here. The the Progressive Conservatives are the lesser of 3 evils.
Cherniak, in typical Liberal kiss ass and ostrich fashion, refuses to put elected Liberal MP Omar Alghabra in his proper and deserving place. Instead he buys Alghabra's lip service. Even when presented with facts that contradict the MP from Mississauga-Erindale.
On the surface, Alghabra seems very sincere in his efforts to stop radicalism amongst the Islamic Canadian Youth. After the arrests of 17 Muslims on terrorist charges (many who resided in his riding, by the way), Alghabra said "We need to make sure those people who are bent on radical ideologies don't recruit and seduce our youth."
That is all great Omar, but what exactly is a radical ideology? Lets see what you said after a Beersheba bus bombing in 2004 when the Canadian press inserted the word "terrorist" into an Al Reuters story in place of the word "militant" to describe a suicide bomber:
"CanWest, one of the largest media conglomerates in Canada, is failing its responsibility towards all Canadians, not just Arabs and Muslims," he said. "The media has moral and ethical obligations to report the facts when it comes to news reporting, not the opinions of their editors."
If Alghabra thinks statements like this harbor radicalism he must be an imbecile. Maybe he is. Before the Palestinian elections he said "I don’t believe Hamas wants elimination of Israel."
Alghabra emailed Cherniak when Cherniak asked him about his stance on terrorism, here is what he wrote:
"I have and never had any hesitation in condemning suicide bombers that target civilians, no ifs or buts. I have written a piece in the Montreal Gazette and Ottawa Citizen that was published last year before I ran for office and after the July bombing in London that condemns all form of terrorism."
Can't find those pieces with those words Omar. But I did find this when you had a chance to condemn Palestinian terrorism:
Alghabra, former head of the Canadian Arab Federation, told the Jewish Tribune that he has “always spoken out against extremism and violence against civilians.” But when asked whether he would specifically denounce suicide bombers, he would not comment, claiming that he was being “trapped.”
Either Alghabra is completely dishonest, or very stupid, or perhaps a combination. He shouldn't be considered a voice against Islamic radicalization in Canada until he grows up or gets real.
If he is a liar, maybe he did say his victory was a victory for Islam.
Hypocrite Alghabra also stated: "Canada's foundation is built on multiculturalism, the aboriginals, the anglophone and francophone cultures, the three major cultures. They are the starting foundation of our country. The francophones and the anglophones were the first immigrants and then we welcomed other immigrants. This country has been strengthened and built on the diversity of the people and their culture. So, if we start dismissing multiculturalism, we're really undermining the essence of Canada,"
Too bad, like other hypocritical Westernized Arabs, he doesn't use the same standards when he dodges the fact that diversity and immigration Arab intolerance is what fueled the beginning of the Israeli-Arab conflict.
I still don't get how Canadians could elect a terrorist(Hamas) supporter. Maybe he was too well funded by a certain large oil nation. Maybe some of the leftover funding got into Sid Ryan's pocket too when CUPE recently boycott Israel. Isn't speculation wonderful?
