“There is (also) concern that the motion will, in some manner, chill valid criticism of Islamist terror, or will not make allowance for legitimate criticism or analysis of Islam. Such criticism would now be forced to wear the degrading mantle of Islamophobia. Given this welter of mixed impressions and varied understandings of the very point of the motion, how effective can it be?… There is the key term itself, Islamophobia. As I have suggested in an earlier piece, this recent coinage, Islamophobia, is itself a contested term” (1).

Bill M-103 will be debated and voted on by Parliament on February 16th, exactly one week from now.
Text of the Motion:
“That, in the opinion of the House, the government should: (a) recognize the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear; (b) condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination and take note of House of Commons’ petition e-411 and the issues raised by it; and (c) request that the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage undertake a study on how the government could (i) develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia, in Canada, while ensuring a community-centered focus with a holistic response through evidence-based policy-making, (ii) collect data to contextualize hate crime reports and to conduct needs assessments for impacted communities, and that the Committee should present its findings and recommendations to the House no later than 240 calendar days from the adoption of this motion, provided that in its report, the Committee should make recommendations that the government may use to better reflect the enshrined rights and freedoms in the Constitution Acts, including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”

“It had been reported prior to 2015 that the Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islami front groups would use the Liberal Party of Canada as a vehicle for political entryism… The article also noted the roles of ISNA Canada and ICNA Canada in these efforts. A number of Canadian Members of Parliament have Islamist connections, advocate for sharia law or, in the case of Cabinet Minister Maryam Monsef, states that ‘Sharia fascinates me’:)”
The article linked to below is very significant in that it indicates a number of ways in which Muslim “extremists” are using Canada to advance their purposes, including silencing “Islamophobia”.

“Sharia courts administering Islamic justice in Britain are run by clerics who believe some offenders should have their hands chopped off… Teaching children fundamental British values is an act of ‘cultural supremacism,’ according to the National Union of Teachers… 23% of British Muslims said Islamic Sharia law should replace British law in areas with large Muslim populations… Residents in Manchester received leaflets in their mailboxes, from a Muslim group called ‘Public Purity,’ calling for a public ban on dogs.”
The above brief extracts are taken from Soeren Kern’s article “The Islamization of Britain in 2016” posted by the Gatestone Institute yesterday (1).

“If they fine me, I won’t pay it. If they put me in jail, I’ll go on a hunger strike. I’m not doing this. And that’s that. I’m not using the words that other people require me to use. Especially if they’re made up by radical left-wing ideologues.” – Professor Jordan Peterson, University of Toronto.
The above quote is from Anthony Furey’s article “Once they’re done with Jordan Peterson, they’ll come for you” appearing in the Toronto Sun on Oct. 29th. (1) And the cause of all this? Professor Jordan has had the temerity to point-blank refuse to accommodate those of his students who wish to be addressed as “ne”, “ve”, “ze”, “xe” etc.
