Six items in total…

“His logic is that, because there are Christians who engage in criminal and violent activities – and yet no one blames Christianity for their behavior – so too should Islam not be blamed when Muslims engage in criminal and violent activities… In this, the Catholic pope appears unable or unwilling to make the pivotal distinction between violence committed in accordance with Islamic teachings, and violence committed in contradiction of Christian teachings.” – Raymond Ibrahim, “Pope Francis Tears at History’s Ancient Walls against Islam” – Feb. 24th, 2017.

“Earlier this month, a Syrian refugee, Soleiman Hajj Soleiman, 39, was arrested and charged with six counts of sexual assault for allegedly groping teenage girls at West Edmonton Mall’s indoor beach. Many PC politicians and advocates for multiculturalism urged media outlets to withhold Soleiman’s refugee status from the public… It’s that diversity-and-inclusion-trump-personal-safety thinking that has created the backlash against political correctness.” – Lorne Gunter, “The backlash to political correctness was inevitable” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 25th, 2017.

“The attackers want to show that they live in Stockholm and that life is cool here. Many Tunisians are defending these rapists and it looks like as if I hate Tunisians because I expose them. I consider their actions a serious crime, but they see it as something normal.” – Tunisian man quoted by David Frankenhuis in “Sweden: Arab men live stream sexual assault on Facebook. Again.” – Gatestone Europe, Feb. 23rd, 2017.

“Last week in Toronto, imams at a downtown mosque were filmed calling for the annihilation of ‘filthy Jews.’ A couple days after the videos got out, a small, quiet protest took place outside the Masjid mosque with demonstrators carrying signs that said ‘Stop Islam’ and ‘Say No to Islam’… Sensing a chance to demonstrate just how liberal they are, Ontario politicians quickly pounced on the quiet protest, denouncing it as Islamophobic. Only many days later did officialdom condemn the genocidal sermons.” – Lorne Gunter, “The backlash to political correctness was inevitable” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 25th, 2017.

“Long before 9/11 and the war on terrorism, U.S. courts painted Islam as more than merely a foreign religion, but rather as a rival ideology and ‘enemy race.’ In a notable 1891 case, the Supreme Court highlighted ‘the intense hostility of the people of Moslem faith to all other sects, and particularly to Christians’.” – Robert Klein Engler, “Should Islam be restrained in the United States?” – Canada Free Press, Feb. 23rd, 2017.

“The ban, right or wrong, has once again unveiled the hypocrisy of extremist Muslims on civil liberties and on what is and what is not racist. Extremist Muslims’ understanding of freedom is a one-way street: Freedoms, such as religious rights, are ‘good’ and must be defended if they are intended for Muslims – often where Muslims are in minority. But they can simply be ignored if they are intended for non-Muslims – often in lands where Muslims make up the majority.” – Burak Bekdil, “Extremist Muslims’ one-way street” – Gatestone Institute, Feb. 24th, 2017.
