“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).
M-103 calls for a “heritage committee” to study the issue and then report back with recommendations – that could be used to create “anti-Islamophobia” legislation – within 240 days. The clock is ticking…
My expectation is that incidences of “hate-crimes” against Muslims will now fly off the charts as those behind the “blasphemy” agenda, intended to stifle free speech and censor any criticism of Islam, work hard to follow-through on the opening they have been provided with.
For them, this is all-or-nothing time, and no holds will be barred.
Sharia Law is on the way, and we must fight against it. Get ready for some nasty surprises.
