Canadians rightfully upset over Ottawa Police Service’s overreach to a radical Muslim group


images-1In a recent communiqué published on its website, the Ottawa Police Service endorsed an activity organized by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC). On its own website, MAC acknowledges its adherence to the ideology promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood and its founder Hassan al-Banna:

Muslim Association of Canada worships Hassan Al Banna

Point deBascule MAC’s (…) modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood. (…) MAC adopts and strives to implement Islam, as embodied in the Qur’an, and the teachings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAC regards this ideology as the best representation of Islam as delivered by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

In his 50-point manifesto, Hassan al-Banna promoted the abolition of political parties and the instauration of a one-party State, the reform of the law, so that it will conform to sharia, an increase in the number of youth groups promoting jihad, the prohibition of dancing, the censorship of movies and plays and a dress code for all citizens enforced by a religious police.

In Ottawa, MAC is involved in the radicalization of Muslim youths notably by promoting authors such as Sayyid Qutb (1906-1966) on its website


Sayyid Qutb (Milestones – Chapter 4): As to persons who attempt to defend the concept of Islamic Jihaad by interpreting it in the narrow sense of the current concept of defensive war, and who do research to prove that the battles fought in Islamic Jihaad were all for the defense of the homeland of Islam … they lack understanding of the nature of Islam and its primary aim. Such an attempt is nothing but a product of a mind defeated by the present difficult conditions and by the attacks of the treacherous orientalists on the Islamic Jihad.

In the same book, Qutb has also explained the real goal pursued by Islamists who are involved in so-called outreach programs and bridge-building:

(Milestones – Chapter 10): The chasm between Islam and Jahiliyyah (non-Muslim world) is great, and a bridge is not to be built across it so that the people on the two sides may mix with each other, but only so that the people of Jahiliyyah (non-Muslim world) may come over to Islam … in order that they may come out of darkness into light and may get rid of their miserable condition.


Alberta gave $250,000 to Islamists who financed HAMAS’ fund collector and invites promoters of sharia in Edmonton.


IPT  Since MAC Edmonton’s chairman Issam Saleh threatened to sue critics of the Muslim Brotherhood for having alluded to links with terrorism in 2010, not one, not two but three Islamist organizations linked with MAC and the Arabian Muslim Association have had their charity status revoked by the Canada Revenue Agency precisely because of their links with terrorism.

MAC’s motto A Revolution in Islamic Work in Canada was added to the organization’s logo on the poster announcing the visit of Islamist leader Tariq Ramadan in Montreal during the 2012 Labour Day weekend.
