Daily Briefing: CRITIQUING CANADA’S “ISLAMOPHOBIA INDUSTRY”

“The word “Islamophobia” was popularized after 9/11 by the Muslim Brotherhood and its legacy groups to quell debate and discussion about Islam. Which is exactly what Zine’s report does by treating Muslim critiques of Islam as heresy.” — Raheel Raza

Spirits in a Material World:  Lord Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, The Rabbi Sacks Legacy, Vaera 5776, 5783 — The Torah sometimes says something of fundamental importance in what seems like a minor and incidental comment. There is a fine example of this near the beginning of this parsha.

There is No Islamophobia in Canada: Tarek Fatah, Toronto Sun, Jan. 16, 2021 — Where else in the world would a Catholic prime minister, the leader of its right-wing Christian Conservative opposition, the left-wing party headed by a turbaned Sikh and the head of a separatist party join the city’s mayor, the province’s premier and tens of thousands of ordinary citizens to condemn the horrific mass murder of a Muslim family, allegedly at the hands of home-schooled Christian man?
 
Canadian Gov Funds Report Attacking David Horowitz Freedom Center:  Daniel Greenfield, MEF Campus Watch, Dec. 29, 2022 — An imam prayed, “O Allah!
