Anti Islam protest reached last week Calgary and Edmonton. Around 40 of anti-Islam posters were found on October 4, 2016 in various locations in the campus of the University of Calgary. On the same week several residents in a southwest Edmonton neighbourhood received anti-Islam flyers in their mailboxes.
Sgt. Eric Levesque, hate crimes coordinator with the Calgary Police Service, said that the posters are “very offensive”, but “if you remove the bad words the message itself does not contravene Canada’s hate speech laws.”
The posters found at the University of Calgary feature radical Muslims shouting with mouth open accompanied with the following caption:
F— your beheadings
F— your Sharia [Islamic Law]
F— your genital mutilations
F— your TAQIYYA [deception and lying in Islam]
F— your Mohammed [prophet of Islam]
F— your Quran [Islam’s holy book]
On the other hand, you can keep your barbaric ways, right where they belong, in your 7th-century homelands. #GetTheF–OuttaHere
The flyers sent to residents of Edmonton read:
“Here’s ‘Islam’ for you:
“Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human. Muhammad said that Muslims can be
put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.
“Islam is the only religion that has to retain its membership by formally threatening to kill
anyone who leaves. This is according the example set by Muhammad.
“Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing
his religion. This included women.
“Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad.
Does this delusional 7th-century cult really belong here?
The arguments on the anti-Islam posters and flyers appear to be consistent with the teachings of Canadian imams and Islamic literature in Canada.
Flyer: Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad
Jasser Auda, Imam and scholar (Ottawa): “The ummah [nation] of Mohammad, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, is defined by following Mohammad, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, and following Mohammad means to follow his Shariah [Islamic Law]. So the Sharia is the core identity of thisUmmah [Muslim nation]…”
Flyer: Muslim could never be condemned to death for killing a non-Muslim
Islamic ruling: The death penalty does apply to a Muslim who kill a non-Muslim civilian and he has to pay blood money. The book Minhaj al-Muslim – A Book of Creed Manners, Character, Acts of Worship and other Deeds – (sold in ICNA and ISNA bookstores in the Greater Toronto Area) adds (Vol. 2, p. 492-493), “If the victim was a non-Muslim under the protection of the Islamic State (Dhimmi), whether he was a Jew, a Christian or of some other religion, his blood money is half the blood money of the Muslim [in case of an unintentional killing]. The blood money of their females is half the blood money of their males. This is due to the Prophet’s statement: “The blood money of the disbeliever is half the boold money of the (Muslim) man.” (At-Tirmithi and it is hasan [reliable]).”
Flyer: Muslim who left Islam is subject to death penalty
Ahmed Abdul Kader Kandil, member of Conseil des imams du Québec (Imams Council of Quebec) – In asermon on May 12, 2013 at Alrawdah Mosque in Montreal (originally in Arabic), Kandil explained “The Types of Apostasy” and among other things said the following: “The second case deals with a person who fights against Allah and His messenger and joined a vile group. His verdict will not be a regular execution. His verdict will be identical to the punishment for banditry. ‘Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that theybe killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides.’ [Quran 5:33]. This is the difference between them. The first will be asked to repent and the second [type of apostate]will be killed immediately without repentance or asking him to repent…”
Flyer: People who insult Mohammad are subject to death penalty
Said Rageah, Imam and an instructor for the AlMaghrib Institute (Toronto), implicitly justified the death penalty for apostates and those who insult the prophets. Montreal Imam Ahmed Kandil said that “those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger… be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides.”
Poster: Death penalty is executed by beheading the convicted
The book Minhaj al-Muslim – A Book of Creed Manners, Character, Acts of Worship and other Deeds –(sold in ICNA and ISNA bookstores in the Greater Toronto Area) adds (Vol. 2, p. 529): “The Prophet’s [Mohammad] statement: “The Hadd [fixed] punishment of the magician is striking with the sword.” This means that he is killed according to Islamic Legislation for his criminal offence, which is apostasy or heresy (Az-Zandaqah) or magic.”
Poster: Islam orders female genital mutilation
Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, Imam and scholar (Toronto), said that Islam permits female circumcision, which is a “slight” cut that does not affect the ability of women to achieve sexual satisfaction.
Free Islamic literature in Toronto introduces the “true Islam” to non-Muslims
Muslim Dawah (outreach, “call to Islam”) activists at Toronto’s Dundas Square, those affiliated with Walk-In Islamic InfoCentre (WIIC), distributed during recent years a variety of Islamic literature.
