There could be an unintended consequence of the proposed ‘Charter of Quebec Values’ which seeks to ban the wearing of conspicuous religious symbols and attire from public buildings: Many Muslim families would leave Quebec.
(Although this ban would affect several different religions, as everyone knows, the sole reason for the legislation is to stop Muslim women from wearing full face veils (niqabs and burqas) in public. The majority in Quebec feel it’s a small price to pay for getting offensive Muslim supremacist attire out of stores, offices, and other public buildings)
CTV News (h/t der Kanadier) A majority of Quebecers agree with the proposed “Charter of Quebec Values” would essentially ban public employees from wearing religious clothing such as turbans, hijabs and kippas, and other symbols, such as crucifixes. Sixty-five per cent of francophones support it, compared to only 25 per cent of Anglophones. And 91 per cent of Quebecers of all backgrounds said they were opposed to gender considerations in the charter, such as separate swim times for men and women at public pools.
A Muslim publication, Muslim Matters, has this to say:
“Mom, are we going to leave Canada?” Shahzaib, my almost 10-year-old’s voice was laced with nervousness, his big brown eyes filled with a worry that can cut through a mother’s heart. But, my answer came gently, yet firmly.
“Yes, hon, if Bill 60 gets passed, and if it ever gets adopted by all of Canada; we would leave. In a heartbeat.”
He got it. Sheheryar, my older one was already asking follow-up questions. I was glad, and relieved. They understood – being a Muslim comes first. We had just discussed Bill 60. My sons couldn’t fathom the “unfairness,” of it.
Bill 60 is the secular values charter being advocated in Quebec. Funny how it manages to pummel basic religious values embraced by four major religions: Islam, Sikh, Judaism, and Christianity in order to create secular ones. Democratic Institutions Minister Bernard Drainville is championing the bill, which asks civil servants to get rid of “ostentatious religious symbols.”
Ostentatious? Ostentatious is a synonym for flamboyant, showy, brazen, and pretentious. It is the opposite of modest, which is exactly the main reason for the hijab, and other religious “symbols” being discussed. (Non-Muslims see it as a symbol of Muslim supremacy, which it is)
This legislation would prevent your children having to be cared for by women who look like this
And, in what can only be deemed as phenomenally ironic – Drainville banned the use of “racist” during the Bill 60 hearings now going on in Quebec. So he’s not a racist? The supporters aren’t racists. Who’s the racist? If you can answer this question, you are surely smarter than I am. (Since when is Islam a race? If you can answer this question, you are surely smarter than I am)
Whatever unfulfilled desires Quebecers may have when it comes to their heritage, projecting them on other multicultural groups is simply uncalled for!

The gallery Rönnquist & Quist, who held the opening of a new Lars Vilks (renowned Mohammed cartoon artist) exhibit with his paintings on December 7th, states that he has hidden the name of both the apartment door and gate, (which also has access code) on the mailbox. “Yet the Islamist thugs found me anyway,” says gallery owner to Exponerat.
BCF (h/t Susan K) This they did probably through the apartment number on the door, which as shown at left was sprayed with the word “Allah” [in Arabic]. The gallerist also told Exponerat that he first became very scared, frightened and sad and distressed when he works only to survive.
“But the initial fear subsided after a while, and this strengthens me in my struggle for freedom of expression and makes things positive. They think they can break me, but they cannot. And Vilks will be exhibiting in Malmö again in May with me,” continued the gallerist to Exponerat.
Lars Vilks painting called a rondellhund.
“We will not stop until there is a rondellhund in every Swedish home,” said Lars Vilks together with gallerist.
The gallery not only had the front door sprayed with the word “Allah”. In addition, Muslims placed seven stones in his mailbox, which in Islam signifies death penalty. The seven stones, mean “bedau”, which is a curse, a “mini-fatwa” on him.This is now possible in the once safe Sweden, where you did not even have to lock your door.
The gallery also told Exponerat that they have reported the matter to the police and he has received a panic alarm. “We will fight together, Lars Vilks and I, and we will have many more shows, both here and outside Sweden,” says gallery owner on the phone toExponerat on Saturday night. (BRAVO! Be safe)
As the Muslim supremacist community in Brussels is overbreeding its way into becoming a Muslim majority, as predicted by 2030, the focus of the EU has turned from fighting the Islamic scourge to making anti-Islam sentiment the most serious problem in Europe now.
PressTV Because of the surge in Anti-Islam groups such as the English/Danish/Belgian/Swedish/Dutch/ German/ Norwegian, and more Defence Leagues in the EU, the EU has announced it will establish the so-called European Knowledge Hub to counter violent (white) extremism. Muslim leaders in Brussels have welcomed the European Commission’s efforts but they say a lot more needs to be done.
A Nova Scotia high school student is asserting she was reduced to “second-class citizenship” after her Halifax aikido school submitted to sharia law and accommodated a MUSLIM male student’s religious request not to touch his female classmates.
National Post (h/t Maria J) The man also refused to bow, apparently telling the dojo’s sensei that he only bowed to Allah. Bowing is a big part of the Japanese martial art, and aikido students are expected to regularly bow to classmates, the sensei and the front wall of the dojo, which is traditionally adorned with portraits of aikido’s pioneers. And when it came time for the customary end-of-class handshakes, “he would shake hands with all the other men in the dojo, but he wouldn’t even come over and look at the women … he just ignored us,” said Ms. Power.
“I felt degraded, discriminated against, I felt like a woman in the 1950s,” said Sonja Power, 17, a former student at Halifax’s East Coast Yoshinkan Aikido, a school operated out of the city’s Lakeside Community Centre. “We wouldn’t allow someone using their religion to discriminate against someone’s race, so why would they use it to discriminate against somebody’s gender?”
Ms. Power, a resident of the Halifax suburb of Upper Tantallon, NS, had been a student at East Coast Yoshinkan since the age of six. In the spring of 2012, Ms. Power, then 15, was just on the verge of earning her aikido black belt when she said a man enrolled at the school and told its owner that, for reasons of his Islamic faith, he was not allowed physical contact with women.
Apparently Muslim women are allowed physical contact with men in Aikido
The request would not have been noticed in a pottery class or a fencing course, but Aikido — like any martial art — is uniquely physical. The ultimate effect, said Ms. Power, was that sessions were suddenly being divvied up by sex. The school’s sensei “would put all the women on one side and then offer a side for the Muslim man so there wouldn’t be any problems,” she said.
Along with her mother, Ms. Power said she approached the sensei with her concerns about the new environment, but was told that it was the student’s religious right. “[The sensei] told us to get used to it,” said Michele Walsh, Ms. Power’ mother.
Aiming to complete her training, Ms. Power nevertheless stayed in the school for another five months, but said her breaking point came when the male student began distributing religious literature. In July of 2012, said Ms. Power, the student handed out copies of Islam; From darkness to light a booklet written by Toronto-based Islamic author Suhail Kapoor.
Several passages stuck out for the 15-year-old. “[When] a woman chooses to show her body in one form or another, the message is only one: she wants attention and possibly much more,” it reads. The booklet also authorizes husbands to administer a “light strike” to their wives in cases of “serious moral misconduct.”
“I couldn’t go to the same dojo with someone who thinks that way,” said Ms. Power. “I thought why would someone’s religion — something that they choose to follow — trump my gender, which is something that I was born with?”
Steve Nickerson, a fifth degree black belt and the owner and sensei of East Coast Yoshinkan Aikido, wrote in an email to the National Post that although he met the student’s request to avoid physical contact with women, “I believe every person should have an equal opportunity to participate in recreational activities and I would not deny this student access to my classes,” noting that he made the accommodation with the confidence that it would not be “disadvantaging any other person’s participation in my classes.”

The decision, he said, was supported by both the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and the Halifax Recreation Administration, which operates Lakeside Community Centre. Lisa Teryl, a lawyer for the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, was unable to comment on the aikido case specifically, but acknowledged the stickiness of weighing the “competing rights” of gender equity versus religious beliefs.
“In the fabric of Canadian society, [gender segregation] isn’t something that, in a secular sense, we support … we generally see it as a bad thing,” she said. At the same time, she said, the law requires reasonable accommodation of religious views, which are generally given much higher consideration than mere matters of personal preference.
Anti-Islamization Sweden Democrats party under fire for mentioning that “rape is a Muslim form of punishment.” The latest controversy stemming from statements by top brass of the right wing nationalist party started with a Facebook post by Michael Hess, vice chair of the Sweden Democrats in Karlskrona in southern Sweden, in which he wrote that “rape is deeply rooted in Islamic culture.”
The Local When asked about Hess’ comments, Linus Bylund, press secretary for party leader Jimme Åkesson, said the statement couldn’t be construed as racist because it was factual. ”It says in the quran that rape can be used against women who have been unfaithful. It’s a Muslim form of punishment,” Bylund told the Blekinge Läns Tidning (BLT) newspaper.
Jan Hjärpe, a professor of Islamic studies at Lund University, rejected the Sweden Democrat’s claim. ”It’s not true, it’s not in the quran,” he told The Local. “But it’s rather common in parlance, you can hear this kind of thing in environments where there are ethnic tensions,” he added, pointing to similar occurences in the Balkans during the nineties.
Be that as it may, whether it is in the quran or not, rape of both Muslim and non-Muslim women is deeply rooted in Islamic culture.
The very first essay I ever wrote under the pen name Fjordman, published at my then brand-new blog on February 20, 2005, was entitled “Muslim Rape Epidemic in Sweden and Norway — Authorities Look the Other Way.”
It’s not entirely coincidental that the first essay I wrote under the pseudonym Fjordman was about rape in Sweden. In no case is there a worse discrepancy between how Sweden likes to present itself to the world and how the country actually is than when it comes to the question of rape. Its carefully cultivated image as a champion of women’s rights runs counter to the real-life fact that Sweden is becoming a hell for many women.
The problem of rapes in Sweden is worse now than when I first wrote about it almost a decade ago. The 6,320 reported rapes officially registered in that country in 2012 almost certainly do not represent the full number of such crimes that actually took place that year. In 2880 of these registered rapes, the victims were minors and children aged between 0-17 years old. A surprising 10% of these victims of child rape in Sweden in 2012 were boys. The male percentage of rape victims is smaller for adults, but still higher than it used to be some time ago.
We know that many rape victims do not report the crime, perhaps partly due to shame and fear. If we assume that 25% of the rapes that are committed are reported to the police authorities, the total number of rapes in Sweden in 2012 would actually be over 25,000 rather than 63,20, which was already bad enough.
The Swedish mass media and political elites are very careful not to suggest any connection between these rapes and mass immigration from Third World countries. Yet there is every reason to suspect that such a connection exists. We know from other Western European countries that immigrants from certain regions and cultures, particularly from the Islamic world and Africa, are disproportionately represented as perpetrators in rape cases.
In Britain, especially in English cities, a disturbing number of cases have been revealed in which Muslim men prey on girls, some of them as young as ten years old, drug them and sexually abuse them. Most of their young victims are native white girls, but occasionally they will even prey on non-Muslim girls from other immigrant communities.
In 2005, the ethnologist Maria Bäckman in her study “Whiteness and gender” followed a group of ethnic Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby near Stockholm. Natives there are now a minority of the inhabitants due to mass immigration. Several natural blondes stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid unwanted attention and sexual harassment. Being called “whore” is so common for white girls in certain schools that teachers no longer react to this. The problem certainly hasn’t become smaller in the years that have passed since this study.
A report from 2006 detailed how being a Swedish girl or young woman increasingly means feeling unsafe in your own country. They are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many are planning how to go home at night, how to defend themselves or how to run all the way home if they have to.
“It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid, in an interview about a gang rape involving immigrant perps. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f***ed before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame.”
He claims that it is “far too easy to get a Swedish whore…… girl, I mean.” Hamid laughed over his own choice of words. “I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f***ed to pieces.”
Suggesting that the ongoing rise in violent crime might have something to do with mass immigration of alien and aggressive cultures is quite literally banned by law. In March 2007 during a rally supported by SSU, the Social Democratic Youth League, a man carried a sign reading, “While Swedish girls are being gang raped by immigrant gangs the SSU is fighting racism.”
He was promptly arrested and later sentenced to a fine. His crime? He had “expressed disrespect for a group of people with reference to their national or ethnic background.” The local court rejected the man’s free speech argument because even free speech has its limits, and he had clearly acted in too provocative a manner.
While the rape numbers are horrific, they make up just one element of the spread of violent crime. Sweden used to be a safe country not so many decades ago. Yet Swedish streets are now plagued by muggings, shootings, robberies, gang rivalries and mafias on a scale previously unknown in modern Scandinavian history.
In late August 2013, after an alleged attack on a veiled Muslim woman, a grassroots movement defending women’s right to wear hijab (veil) was backed by many politicians and celebrities in Sweden. Left-wing politicians were among those who lent their support to the movement, dubbed “The hijab appeal,” by posting pictures of themselves wearing the Islamic headscarf. The attackers were never identified.
The biased and totalitarian Swedish mass media reacted, based on weak evidence from a strange story, with a campaign against an alleged wave of Islamophobic “hate” in Sweden, one of the most politically correct countries on the surface of this planet.
As the author Bruce Bawer commented at the time in FrontPage Magazine: “There’s no evidence that it did happen — no eyewitnesses, no surveillance video — and it’s been suggested (although not, of course, in the Swedish media) that the woman’s story could be entirely bogus. In any case, it’s a man-bites-dog tale if there ever was one: Sweden is overrun with Muslim men who rape infidel women, not with infidels who pull headscarves off Muslim women.”
In late August 2013, at the exact same time as prominent non-Muslim Swedish women were donning the veil to show “solidarity” with Muslims, seven Afghan Muslim asylum seekers were convicted of brutally gang-raping a Swedish woman in the small town of Mariannelund. Another man who masturbated next to the woman’s head while the other seven were raping her for hours was acquitted, though. He received 130,000 kroner in damages for his ordeal. This was sponsored by Swedish taxpayers, presumably including the family of his victim.
Because of such examples, the writer Eva Agnete Selsing in Denmark has come to the conclusion that “Sweden is the Evil Empire.” She was referring to a new kind of totalitarianism and Utopian ideology of open borders.
Selsing was not arguing that this new form of Multicultural totalitarianism was as militant and violent as some of the earlier totalitarian movements, but that doesn’t mean that it is not harmful or dangerous. In her view, the explosive cocktail of extreme political correctness and rampant mass immigration is creating a “catastrophe” in Swedish society. The ruthless authoritarian suppression of dissent upheld by the ruling elites and the media establishment has transformed Sweden into something approaching a “prison of the mind.”
One of the most horrific examples is the country’s rape statistics, which are the worst in Europe. Parallel to mass immigration from Third World countries, the number of recorded rapes, also of children, has exploded. Eva Agnete Selsing wonders how the “hypocritical” Swedish political and media elites can sleep at night, knowing fully well what kind of nightmare of violence and street crime they are pushing on their own people.
Perhaps Swedish authorities should worry more about the incredibly large number of rapes in their own country, and less about transsexuals in Serbia or gay adoption rights in Russia.
