CanadaLand: How Postmedia Has Pushed Islamophobic Attitudes Across Ontario
Hardly "unspeakable" since it was indeed spoken as if true.
Not only are the premises of these media reports inaccurate, they are not even rational. First of all, I can't imagine a Muslim family saying, "Yes, let's go West because we're sure to be hated there for 'our anti-West values'."
Why would the media want to suggest such a thing? Are they just plain dim, or are they actively trying to get something started? And then you have to ask, who's paying them to do this?
Surely they realize they're subtly evoking what some people try to keep hidden.
For instance, I happen to know an extremely well-educated Toronto gentleman who is afraid that if too many more Muslims are allowed into Canada, the (widely misconstrued) Sharia Law will be instituted. He won't shed a tear over the deaths of this family, and will instead feel vindicated for his own distaste for Muslims.
I put that down to creeping senility, but I think it's worth mentioning that he's Jewish and that most people are not even aware there is Jewish Law operating in Canada and that, under certain circumstances, it can be - and has been - used to circumvent provincial law.
But, in general, religious law is simply that. If you don't follow it, you might get kicked out of the congregation, and that's about it. Nobody else will even notice.
I don't know how deeply embedded anti-Muslim sentiment is in Canada -- certainly there aren't street demonstrations with shouts of "down with Muslims" going on, but there certainly would be an undercurrent, because that's just the way some people are -- they dislike anything different from themselves.
But I feel certain that widespread, pernicious hatred of Muslims cannot be proven merely by pointing to the horrific deaths by vehicle attack of members of a Muslim family and extrapolating from there -- mainly because all we really know is that it happened, and so far, the perpetrator has not said why.
And before I go any further, I'd like to say that my side column has always contained notices about two Muslims who have been, for long years, treated as criminals by the Canadian government without ever being found so in the courts.
Does that mean our government hates Muslims? Or has it merely found them useful for propaganda purposes -- supporting the myth of 9/11 and similar disasters?
I refer to Mohamed "Moe" Harkat *, (Canada's modern day "Joseph K." in Kafka's The Trial) who was arrested shortly after 9/11 and to this day has not been apprised of the charges against him because it's secret information. Although a number of restrictions have been gradually lifted, he remains in danger of being sent back to Algeria where he could face torture for the reasons he left there in the first place -- supporting the wrong government. I also refer to Hassan Diab's Case, one with which I'm not so personally familiar, but is a saga that's been a monumental farce from the outset.

But hey, the government would never hurt a Muslim, eh?
With regard to the truck slaying of a beautiful Muslim family, the only things we can be reasonably sure of are that it did happen, that it was, of course, horrific but that it might have been a spur-of-the-moment action by a hyped-up young misfit who may well have not been in his right mind.
He certainly did not mention Muslims when he reported that he had killed some people. And he made international news! Why? Because the story's been embellished long before we've even had any indication of the state of his mental health.
Too bad there is so much conjecture in a UK Mirror version of the story:
And here's the kicker from a PM who should know better than to state as if fact:
Sorry, but I don't call this anywhere near factual news, and shame on the PM for putting his stamp of approval on the "terrorist" label. But then, it does seem the agenda is to keep us plebes in a perpetually horrified condition.
Let's see, 9/11 terrorists, Iraq, peak oil, global warming, Iranian terrorism, the Syrian threat, Palestinian terrorists, CO2, "Covid", climate change, more CO2, food shortages, gun control, more terrorism ...
People the world over are being encouraged to live in abject fear of just about everything -- to what purpose? To be more reliant on law enforcement, military and government while enriching the massive industries that influence the government that supports them all?
It sure seems so.
On the subject of fear:
It seems I finally have an answer as to why several male strangers have big-daddy-ed me for not wearing a mask and no woman, yet, has chastised me.
