I prefer the Muslim Canadian Congress to the Canadian Jewish Congress
I read this appalling press release by the Ontario Human Rights Commission. As Mark Steyn points out, they didn't bother going through the trouble of having an actual hearing into the Canadian Islamic Congress's complaint against Maclean's magazine and Mark Steyn -- they just skipped straight to their condemnation of Maclean's. I suppose it's more honest than the Canadian Human Rights Commission, which goes through a sham trial before reaching its 100% conviction rate.
But the I saw this wonderful press release by the Muslim Canadian Congress -- not to be confused with the anti-Semitic Canadian Islamic Congress. I like the MCC a lot -- they understand freedom and pluralism much better than the anti-Semitic CIC, or the censorious Canadian Jewish Congress. Even their stationery is wonderful -- look at one of their slogans: "End Gender Apartheid". Those are good people, who need our support -- and they need to be treated by the media as the legitimate spokesmen for Canadian Islam. Here is the MCC press release. My favourite excerpt:
The MCC finds it shameful that the OHCR would use Islamist supplied information in
a blog discussion that called for "the mass killing, deportation or conversion of Muslim Canadians" and position it as reflective of the viewof media and ordinary Canadians.
The OHCR decision must be cause for celebration in Osama Bin Laden's cave and among the soldiers of the world Jihadi movement that love to spread the falsehood that Canada is at war with Islam and that Muslims in Canada live under a cloud of racism and persecution. Nothing can be further from the truth.
