Beth Tikvah Synagogue in Toronto was planning on renting their space to the organization ‘Canadians for the Rule of Law’ for a conference entitled ‘The New Taboo: Respect for the Rule of Law in Canada’ to discuss topics of radicalism within the Canadian community. Their topics are to cover 1/ the radical left; 2/ radical Islamists; and 3/ the radical right within the following framework:
TAKE ACTION AGAINST PROPAGATORS OF MISINFORMATION IN THE MEDIA
RELIGION IN THE “PUBLIC SPACE”
DISCRIMINATION IN ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS – PARTICULARLY “HATE CRIMES”
TERRORISM AND PUBLIC SAFETY
LAWFARE: SUCCESSFUL APPROACHES ELSEWHERE
REGISTERED CHARITIES AND NON-CHARITABLE/ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES
ACTIONS AGAINST BDS
This conference was to take place March 17, 2019 in Beth Tikvah Synagogue.
The conference would feature speakers from the Jewish community, as well as anti hate activists such as Donald Carr, who sits on the board of CFTRL, David Matas, legal council for B’nai Brith and Anita Bromberg, executive director for Canadian Race Relations Foundation. The issues arose when it was revealed that purported ‘alt-right’ speakers would be included in the lineup, some of the more notable being Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, Toronto, who has hosted Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders and Christine Douglass-Williams, formerly of Canadian Race Relations Foundations, now a writer for among other venues, Jihad Watch, a news source that focuses on Islamism.
The synagogue has since decided against hosting this conference after correspondence from Karen Mock, president of the progressive Jewish group JSpace Canada. She argued that there would be much negative media attention due to “the Islamophobia and bigotry associated with some of these groups and individuals.”
Rabbi Jarrod Grover of Beth Tikvah stated that the decision to pull out was to avoid a media circus, not to stifle free speech. He reiterated that his was a religious institution, not a political venue.
Religious institutions, at their discretion, regularly rent their space to the public, and of course, they have the right to choose who they rent to and who to refuse.
In this case, was the synagogue pressured to rescind their contract due to public pressure? Are we feeling the chilling effects of M103?
On the other hand, Salaheddin Islamic Centre recently hosted a conference that was to include radical Imams, Imams that have publicly voiced their hatred for non Muslims, and most specifically, the Jewish community.
Even though there were articles revealing radical imams scheduled to speak, the Salaheddin Islamic Centre went through with their conference, minus one of the Imams after pressure from various sources, including letters being sent to government officials about the Imam in question.
As far as we know, there was no public outcry about the above conference at the mosque. There has been no public outcry about radical Imams regularly being guest speakers at this mosque.
It’s speaking out against Islamic radicalism that seems to be verboten. M103.
‘Canadians for the Rule of Law’ will still hold their conference March 17, 2019 in a venue yet to be announced.
Up to this point, there has been no response from the leadership at Salaheddin Islamic Centre with regards to these articles. As a matter of fact, the event poster is still view-able on their facebook page.
IslaminSpanish is a multimedia organization intent on spreading Islam throughout the Spanish community, not only in Texas, but throughout the Spanish speaking world.
Their home base is Houston, Texas where they teach not only in class, but also through on-line courses, video and other media outlets.
Their masjid in Houston have been told they must vacate the current building they are leasing since the lease has expired.
Their website and facebook pages are slick and attractive. They claim to have converted over 140 people in Texas in less than 3 years, most of these coming out of different religions. Their goal is to reach the 500 million Spanish speaking peoples world-wide.
They are currently on a campaign to raise money for a new masjid in Houston, Texas. This campaign is supported by many Imams and Islamic personalities throughout North America, several of who we have written articles on, many of them with questionable credentials, including Canadian Imams.
Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi is a Pakistani American Imam who supports this new endeavor. He has been accused of saying that Christians need to be prevented from practicing Christianity, or that they are filthy, which he has rebutted.
Azar Azeez is another Imam who is supporting this. He is the current president of Islamic Relief USA, an organization whose sister organization, Islamic Relief Worldwide, has been found to be financing terrorist organizations. He has also been president of ISNA. He was also a founding member and past president of CAIR, a Hamas supporting organization. You can find additional information here.
A Canadian connection is Imam Abdullah Hakim Quick, an Imam based in Toronto, Ontario. He is also vice president of the Canadian Council of Imams. He also endorses this endeavor. He has been quoted as asking for the “purifying” an Islamic shrine from the “filth of Christians and Jews.” He has also made homophobic slurs: “It [homosexuality] goes with Zionism. And really it seems like, Allah knows best if they are Dajjal’s (Antichrist) army while it is mostly Jews but probably there will be homosexuals with them too.” which he later recanted.
This Spanish masjid is also supported by New York Imam Siraj Wahaj. This Imam was a guest speaker in Toronto in October of this year, as well as 1993. He is a controversial Imam, known for his antisemitism, his possible connection to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and his promoting armed jihad on the streets of America. “Converting to Islam, youth who feel excluded, and eventually arming them with Uzi submachine guns so that they can wage jihad in U.S. streets”
These are four of many prominent Imams that support IslaminSpanish. All four of these Imams have questionable views, views that have been recorded many times.
The connections of radicalism are clear.
The ambitions of IslaminSpanish are high. With supporters like the above mentioned, it is something US and Canadian intelligence and law enforcement needs to be aware of.

Following the Trump administration’s lead, Canadian conservatives voted overwhelmingly in favour of the Conservative party’s pledge to move the Canadian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem should they win in the upcoming 2019 federal election. Canadian conservatives believe they should support their most loyal ally in the Middle East.
Like the American conservatives, Canadians believe that the time has come to abandon old stereotypical ideas, such as the fear that recognizing Jerusalem as the Jewish capital would stop the peace process. Rather, Canada should refuse to support terrorists which will also save Canadian taxpayers money.
On the issue of abortion, Canadian conservatives decided not to support the pro Abortion resolution, upholding the promise of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper that the conservatives would have no hidden agenda on this controversial issue. Some delegates who favored life choices considered it appropriate to remove the issue of abortion from the agenda, and then same-sex marriage, since, in their opinion, the party should be neutral in this matter.
Social conservatives, the most organized and numerous group in the party won on another issue – the country should not finance abortion in the framework of foreign aid to underdeveloped countries. In my humble opinion, it would be better to stimulate birth rate in one’s own country, and to support a decline in birth rate in the countries supplying refugees.
The conservatives also pledged not to require employers who provide summer jobs for students to swear allegiance to the Charter of Rights. This requirement was introduced by liberals to include access to abortions in exchange for federal funding for student salaries.
“The Conservative Party considers it unethical and incorrect for state-funded applicants to be certified by adherence to the values of the government’s ideology for obtaining state funding,” the party’s resolution says.Conservatives have shown themselves to be true libertarians. The right to state aid should be subject to compliance with labor laws, rather than adherence to the ideology of the ruling party. Here, however, there is a trap. In Israel, for example, art is funded by the state, but the elite, as the state feeder, are engaged in the consistent destruction of the ideology of the Zionist state, but, nevertheless, loudly voice outraged by any government attempts to tear these self-proclaimed elite from taxpayers money.
Another resolution, supported by the majority of votes, expresses the restriction for euthanasia for young people and people who can no longer make a competent decision. Suicide with the help of a doctor or nurse becomes murder.It must be said that in Canada there is quite affordable, and almost free palliative care for citizens and non-citizens in the case of severe terminal (death) pain, and there is no need to push doctors to cross the thin line between rendering care, to murder
The Conservative Party did not support an attempt to ban pornography as representing a “risk to public health.”
Andrew Scheer openly announced his intention to lead the Conservative Party in the upcoming elections. The current liberal prime minister, Justin Trudeau, continues to lose popularity. It was not enough to be the son of the deceased premier, to have a model-like appearance and a charming smile.
According to Andrew Scheer, Trudeau showed his true nature as a politician by raising taxes, breaking rules, increasing government debt. Dissatisfaction with a number of delegates was caused by the refusal to vote on the proposal to abandon state regulation of the agricultural sector. Some delegates felt that this position was directed against capitalism and the free market. It should be noted that it is the government regulation of pricing policy in the dairy industry and high tariffs on the import of dairy products is one of the points of serious economic contradictions between America and Canada.
Another resolution is due to the Trump effect, and it concerns the liberal policy regarding the influx of refugees, which already now costs the provincial governments hundreds of millions of dollars. The overwhelming majority of the delegates voted to “stop all illegal immigration into Canada.” they called on the party to “resume negotiations with the United States on a third party agreement and close all loopholes on the US-Canadian border for illegal immigrants. In addition, the conservatives promise to end “citizenship by place of birth” in order to stop the flow of “refugees” hoping to get a Canadian passport with the help of newborns.
The party promised to make a fair share of the expenses of the NATO bloc, on which Trump insists, condemned the “imposed speech” (it’s also political correctness) and suggested simplifying the tax return procedure.
Conservatives promise to make changes in the economic sector, in particular, to support the construction and operation of an oil pipeline from Alberta to oil refineries on the east coast in order to reduce Canada’s dependence on imported oil. Conservatives promise to abolish the so-called “Carbon Tax ” and trade in carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, each province will have the right to determine its own position on climate without federal intervention. In a sense, you want to fight global warming, fight, but at your own expense, the state will not force anyone to do this.
It is appropriate to recall how the progressive camp rejoiced when the newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that “Canada is returning” and joins the fight against global warming, for his predecessor Stephen Harper preferred not to waste money in the literal sense of the word.
Thus, Andrew Scheer declared himself as a potential prime minister. In the opinion of prominent conservatives, the ground for their victory is good. This year, the Conservatives collected $ 12.1 million in donations, which is twice the income of liberals – $ 6.4 million, and the NDP managed to scrape together only $ 2.2 million.
There was a split in the ranks of the Conservatives, and Maxim Bernier, calling himself a “true conservative”, announced his withdrawal and intention to create a new party. However, many conservatives believe that the unity of the ranks should be higher than pure ideology, because otherwise they can lose.
Of course, the Prime Minister is in no way bound by the resolutions adopted by his party and the opposition, and he can offer a completely different policy, but he cannot ignore the position of the majority and the democratic processes in his party. In any case, a declaration of intent to relocate the Canadian embassy to Jerusalem says a lot about both the Conservative Party and its leader. The official color of the Conservative Party of Canada is blue, so we all wish exactly this blue wave.
Last July, Circanada wrote a piece about Toronto Imam Said Rageah , who spoke about the sinfulness of music. He is quoted as saying; “When you play music all the shayateen [devils] are welcome to your house.”
In August of this year, Said Rageah was a guest speaker of the Salaheddin Islamic Centre in Scarborough, Ontario. This same Islamic Centre will host its annual Winter Conference on December 24-25, 2018. We have written a recent article about a controversial speaker to attend this conference who speaks in a denigrating manner about non Muslims.
Mr Rageah has been known to speak disparagingly of non Muslims as well, and is a strong proponent of sharia. Among other things, he is a believer in the death penalty for apostates.
Salaheddin Islamic Centre hosted Imam who implies Israelis are behind 9/11 by: Rachel Ehrenfeld, ACD
In recent years Shaykh Said Rageah voiced opined on Israel/Jews, race relations, infidels and conspiracy theories among other issues. Here are excerpts from Rageah’s statements:
Said Rageah: “Hire only Muslims”; “Do business only with Muslims”
The following are excerpts from a Friday sermon deliveredby Sheikh Said Rageah at Abu Hurairah Centre in Toronto on February 6, 2009:
“With four, five [hundred] thousand Muslims you can create the most powerful lobby in Canada… with that number of Muslims you can create one of the strongest Muslim business in Toronto… If you just put our resources, if we put our resources together, if we can work together as an Ummah [Muslim nation] we can change a lot… As Muslims, we are scattered all over the city. You have people living in Brampton, you have people living in Mississauga, you have people living in Whitby, you have people living in Richmond Hill. Imagine if we all get together in one area. In the City of Edmonton, the Sikh, Sikh, they live in one neighbourhood and nothing can be changed or done without their approval. We here we may as well benefit from the system that they have here. What can you do with unity? A lot. You can change a lot. You can change the foreign policy of this country. You can change how the Muslims think. You can even when need help, when you need help you call Muslim for your need you will help the Muslim community… Brothers in the masjid [Mosque] right now, they are coming up with the magazine or newspaper called Ummah Times. What Ummah Times is that? Ummah Times is advertising all your businesses all the Muslim businesses [are] Ummah. All you need to do – I will never advertise with a kafir [unbeliever, infidel], there you go. I hear some advertisements giving to 680 News $5,000. Before your Muslim brothers $50 and $80 or $100 we think twice before we do it. Unless we work together, the day we need a truck driver we know where to find truck drivers. The day that I need a cab I should have a number of a Muslim cab it’s ok, pick me up. When I want to see a doctor, only Muslim doctor. When I want to hire someone only Muslim worker. Then we can strengthen ourselves. This is the way and this is the only way we can exist in the society, living according to Islam. When the Sharia [Islamic Law], when the government of Toronto, Ontario gave us a break and said: deal your internal affairs based on your Sharia [Islamic Law] we did not go and say: Those few people are Ismailis and Ahmadis, they are not even Muslims. Why would they speak on behalf of Muslims. But, we say no, we keep quiet and see and watch what happens, and then the result was that they said… we will never allow you to rule yourselves, your internal affairs based on the Shariah… My brothers in faith [اخوتي في الله], anything that happens in your Muslim community, in the City of Toronto, anything that can be done, five hundred thousand Muslims that is a great number, large number, you can do a lot, work together. Let’s be an Ummah [nation]… Take your children to Islamic schools. Take your vehicle to Muslim owned business. If you buy a vehicle make sure there is a Muslim business or car dealer that sells cars. If you want to do anything just ask if that individual is a Muslim or not. If he is not, then look for a Muslim, because I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim. I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim in that field… O Allah, Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims [اللهم اعز الاسلام والمسلمين], and humiliate the disbelievers and the polytheists. [اذل الكفرة والمشركين]”
Said Rageah: “I don’t believe Muslims did Charlie Hebdo attack”
Here is an excerpt from Rageah’s speech (published on January 28, 2015) at Sakinah Community Centre (26:03-27:51):
“The United Nations received 55 thousands images of what happened to some of the Muslims in Syria, but they didn’t do anything about [it]. But one person, three people, eight people, 12 people, all the people die [in Charlie Hebdo attack], you have 50 presidents, 50 coming together, locking arms, marching. Is that for humanity? No (لا). I don’t believe, by the way, for the record, I don’t believe Muslims did that [Charlie Hebdo attack]. It does not make any sense and it is not for you to accuse us. It is not for the Muslims to say: we did it. I don’t believe a bit that Muslims have anything to do with that, because, Glory be to Allah (سبحان الله), September 11 , the building melted, but they found a Saudi passport, Allah willed it (ما شاء الله). What a miracle! You know here [in the case of Charlie Hebdo attack] they kill, you know, people, but miraculously the guys are so intelligent to assassinate 12 people, but he was so dumb to leave his document in the car? Allah willed it (ما شاء الله), May Allah bless you (تبارك الله). I mean, the amateur, you know, thief knows how to clear his mess and it is so unique that the media has files of these people, that the President of the country [France’s François Hollande], 45 minutes, he’s on the scene. He is not afraid that some of these cars are already bombed, you know, you know, is he not afraid? Is does not make any sense. But I dare a Muslim to say: we did it, because we did not.”
Said Rageah: “What happened in September 11  was not a work of Muslims”
Here is an excerpt from Rageah’s speech at the Islamic Awareness Week in 2008:
“You should stay away from it, you should stay away from it, because if you open that subject it is an argument, it is a crazy argument, and I think that at this point most of the people in the West, in the West, most of them understand that what happened in September 11  was not a work of Muslims.”
Said Rageah implies Israelis are behind the 9/11 attacks
Responding to a question regarding the claim of responsibility for the 9/11 attacks taken by an Islamic organization, Rageah said:
“Well, in this case, actually, you can always refer them to websites, like which are done and designed by non-Muslim Americans like www.whatreallyhappened.com, [conspiracy website accusing Israelis of 9/11 attacks] the other side, they will explain to them in a way that maybe to hear from you they will not accept it. That what I did with my father in law. My father in law and the brother in law and especially the mother, they think that Muslims are terrorists and this, and when they hear from a non-Muslim explaining the situation that the plane in the Pentagon is not a work of a plane, they’re thus accepting this, but they did not accept this from me, nor from their daughter. they accept it from someone else. So you can always refer that to the websites that they made and the history that they talked about it way before it happened”
Through the past year, we have written several articles about hate preachers being given admittance into Canada, guest speakers from around the world, guest speakers that call for the annihilation of non Muslims.
A very notable speaker that was ‘welcomed’ into Canada is anti Semite Linda Sarsour. She is, however, one of many that have entered Canada to spew their rhetoric. A few others are American Imam Siraj Wahaj, American Muslim Scholar Yasir Qadhi, Saudi Imam Tawfeeq As-Sayegh, and the latest American Imam invited to speak is Imam Karim AbuZaid, another Imam that quote the following hadith “Abu Huraira reported Allahs Messenger as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: “Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
He goes on to explain this hadith, reiterating that Muslims will conquer the Jews.
When will our government act? When will they refuse entry to these preachers of hate?
“American imam invited to speak in Toronto, says Muslims will fight/kill Jews” ACD December 21, 2018
Salaheddin Islamic Centre in Scarborough, Ontario will host its annual Winter Conference on December 24-25, 2018.
“This year’s conference will deal about Ailment and Cure, a book written by Imam Ibn Qayyeim [Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya – a medieval Islamic jurisconsult, theologian, and spiritual writer] Rahimahu Allah [Allah have mercy upon him]. Its a two days event, our speaker[s] will explan [sic] the book in details,” the official statement reads. The speakers at the event are:
Karim AbuZaid: “Unfortunately, this [Muslim control over Jerusalem] lasted for a little bit, then it’s taken away from us through a promise that was given to the Jewish people by [Britain’s] prime minister called [Arthur] Balfour… [Arthur] Balfour is a human being who gave a promise [a public statement issued by the British government during World War I announcing support for the establishment of a ‘national home for the Jewish people’]. [Donald] Trump is a human being who made a promise [recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel]. We have a promise from Allah. We have a promise from Allah that this land [Palestine] will come back to the [Muslim] believers to the Muslims, to salves (ibad) of Allah, to the slaves of Allah. It is certain. I swear by Allah, [wallahi] it is certain and they believe in it. I swear by Allah, [wallahi], they know it is going to happen. I swear by Allah, [wallahi], I have no doubt it is going to happen. And if you doubt this then you have to go back and check your belief in the oneness of Allah [tawheed], your belief system, your faith [aqidah]. You have to check that. Allah, Glorified and Exalted be He [subhanahu wa taala], you know like Joshua called upon the sun. He said to the sun: Stay still. You know that we believe that the rock, the rock will call upon the believer, but look how it will call him: Ya Abdallah, Oh slave of Allah, come! Behind me is an enemy of Allah. The rock will help you to do this.”

Terrorism has many forms including left-wing terrorism groups like Antifa, which is considered in many US States as a domestic terror group, Black Lives Matter and Antisemitic terrorism, but we also have a religious based terrorism which is what I am going to talk about.
Radical Islamic terrorism has an Islamic religious identity and has roots in the Islamic Scripture. Is there an explanation for jihad today ? It is a kind of terrorism blessed by Islam’s Scholars and scripture for murder in the name of religion. The God being worshiped by Islam’s followers is the architect of terrorism since the radical followers of Islam represent Allah on earth. All the radical Islamic organizations are based on Islamic religious heritage, its approach and style. What is the Identity of al-Qaeda, Isis, the Taliban, Boko-Haram? The answer is Jihad, and by extension, Islam . All these terrorist organizations are committing all their crimes, killing people , destroying lives, and raping women (Jihad) through the inspiration of Mohammed.
Don’t make the mistake in thinking that terrorism has no religious base as many Muslim states claim, because there is terror being practiced by many Muslims in the name of religion and this type and form is the Islamic terrorism that we talk about. The justification, the beautification,and the denial of these terrorist acts that they do not represent Islam is no longer viable, we are no longer fools . No longer should anyone, even those who used to, defend such ideas. In their own hearts, they know that there is Islamic religious terrorism by Islamists that rejects anything that does not agree with their ideology . Claiming that they believe in God and chanting slogans that Allah is the greatest while fighting and killing in the name of religion. Sunni Wahhabi Terrorism does not belong to Islam ? What are Saudi rulers doing to their own citizens by executions, imprisonment and torture? Is that not terrorism ? What is being practiced on the Shia’a minority by Sunni Islamists is religious Sunni terrorism. What is also being practiced by the mullahs of Iran on the Sunni minority is also Shia’a terrorism by suppression of freedoms and imprisonment, torture and displacement. The bombings of mosques that affect innocent people and the bombing of markets in Iraq and Syria. It’s terrorism based on religious convictions of Islamists whose actions are appling the teachings of the Qur’an and Mohammed’s biography. We are talking about terrorism by groups like Isis , Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations against the religious minorities like Christians, Yazidi,and Kurds. Is there still anyone who believes that this terrorism is based solely on Economic or political purposes? Islamic terrorism is directed towards Western countries since those countries are considered as ”Kafir” (unbelievers) by the Jihadi terrorists. The controversy that terrorism has no religion is not true because there is Islamic terrorism based on religion and those who practice it do not deny it. There are verses to prove and confirm Radical Islamic Terrorism. Our question to all defenders and deniers of the existence of Islamic religious terrorism today and accusers of every critic of Islam by blasphemy: al-Qaeda, Isis, Boko-Haram, Taliban, are all these terrorist organizations ideologically secular or Islamic? I am tired of apologists that say that these organizations do not represent Islam. Who exactly represents Islam ? These terrorists are part of Islam. When I write and criticize Islam and Muslims, everyone knows that I criticize the negatives and the radicals. I definitely don’t not mean that I criticize all Muslims. Islamic history since Mohammed until this day is full of wars , destruction and terrorism, even the terror between Muslims themselves. I don’t call for hate but I call for the Coexistence and peace around the globe. Radical Muslim terrorists, or as they also called ”the Jihadists”, are against Coexistence and the global peace .
