This petition is to help keep “Alena's boutique & Bridal” in business. Help stop religious discrimination.
As Canadians deeply concerned with public safety and national security, we demand federal action in investigating and acting upon residents and citizens who have misrepresented their ties to terrorist and fundamental organizations to gain entry and/ or citizenship in Canada.
I own a legal firm north of Toronto and have extensive experience in human rights tribunals and immigration related litigation.
Omar Khadr, the terrorist convicted of killing American medic Sgt Speer in Afghanistan, is attempting to return to Canada. His family, who are known Pakistani terrorist sympathizers, gained Canadian citizenship despite clear ties to fundamentalist Islamic groups like al Qaeda.
Similarly, Canada is infested with Islamic individuals, groups, and mosques promoting hatred and genocide.
This year alone, Toronto’s East End Madrassah was caught with anti Semitic teachings in its curriculum. Additionally, the Walk In Islamic Info Centre, which advertises in the TTC and in street corner booths, was found to have website links to preachers promoting genocide and bigotry.
In July, Islamic street preacher Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana was found to be teaching followers that Western women who wear revealing clothing deserve to be raped. This individual also runs websites with links to groups promoting genocide and hatred.
Martin Collacott, former Canadian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Senior Fellow with the authoritative Fraser Institute, has repeatedly stated that there has been inadequate screening of arrivals to Canada from terrorist infested regions, such as Pakistan and the Middle East.
Section 10(2) of the Canadian Citizenship Act states that:
A person shall be deemed to have obtained citizenship by false representation or fraud or by knowingly concealing material circumstances if the person was lawfully admitted to Canada for permanent residence by false representation or fraud or by knowingly concealing material circumstances and, because of that admission, the person subsequently obtained citizenship.
On July 19th, 2011, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced his intention to revoke the citizenship of 1800 people who have obtained their status through fraudulent means.
In view of widespread terrorism, genocide, and fundamentalism in certain regions of the world, and taking into account the recent epidemic of Islamic hate mongering and fundamentalism in Canada, it is reasonable to ask for an audit of all citizens and residents who have arrived in Canada from Pakistan and the Middle East over the last three decades.
Canadians United against Terror
The rhetoric of Imam Anjem Choudary is a perfect example of why we MUST oppose Sharia Law in Canada, the U.S. and everywhere. I suggest that you google that name and see for yourself.
Honor killings are an embarrassment to humanity.
Fellow human beings are being assassinated in the most inhumane methods. Daughters and wives are being brutally tortured, stoned, and murdered by their own families, all in the name of "honor." This widespread epidemic of such atrocious acts fueled by fundamentalist thinking—dating back to pagan times—is inexcusable. Honor killings are often supported, overlooked, and undermined by authorities and persons of influence.
These murders are committed not just in Muslim countries but around the world, with alarmingly increasing rates on such continents as Europe and North America, which contain some of the most advanced countries of the 21st Century. It is a shame to all humanity that women (and some men) are subject to such barbaric crimes—threatened, tortured in agony, dying the most gruesome deaths.
Statistics Related to Honor Killing:
- 93% of honor killings worldwide are committed against women
- 91% of honor killings are committed by Muslims
- 81% of honor killings committed in Western civilizations are for being “too Western”
- 81% of female victims of honor killing 25 years or younger are murdered by their family of origin
- 68% of women who are victims of honor killing are gruesomely tortured
- Approximately 50% of honor killings are committed by multiple perpetrators

Child Marriages were a social norm in the 7th Century when age of Consent was determined by Puberty. Today, there is a new social norm whereby anyone marrying a minor is considered a pedophile.
According to Islamic Jurisprudence, we, The Ummah have voted in a worldwide Consensus (ijma) and are by Islamic Law calling on the Scholars to protect our children and BAN this practice by 30 December 2010.
City University has closed the prayer room that the Muslim students have been using for over a decade now and intend to move the Muslim students to a Multi-Faith prayer room located in the basement of the main building. (next to the kitchens)
The problems are the following:-
- Room is far too small compared to the current room
- Room is a multi-faith prayer room which Muslims cannot pray in as other gods are worshiped in the same room.
- The washing facilities are inadequate to cater for the needs of a Muslim which are essential before the prayer.
- Booking of the room must be done prior the use which clearly limits the time and duration of the prayer.
- It is a violation of the Human Rights Act 1998 in particular to the right to freedom of religion
In support of the public strike in Iranian Kurdistan.
We can stop the killing of Iranian protesters; we can bring the perpetrators to justice.
BY SIGNING THIS PETITION WE SAY NO TO THE ISLAMIC REGIME OF IRAN
There will be a review that looks into how Sex & Relationship Education (SRE) teaching can be practically implemented in schools. After which there will be a wide ranging consultation amongst stakeholders that will determine the future teaching of SRE to your children.
We want the Muslim voice to be heard. We do not believe schools should teach SRE from key stage 1 (the age of 5) by teachers that believe the more information children have, the more likely it is for them to make informed choices. SRE should not be taught within the model of moral relativism, where right and wrong does not factor. We believe Muslim parents need to either teach Sex Education themselves or cooperate with community organisations, mosques and other parents to ensure children are given timely, appropriate information that is Islamically framed and age appropriate.
That is why we have started a petition that evidences the growing call for a parental opt out. It is by no means certain that an opt out for parents will be guaranteed when the new plans are finalised.
I am against the causing offence to other religions.
In this case the Danish media is causing problems for the common citizens of that country by having Danish products and services boycotted by People of Islamic faith.
We do not need to breed more hatred against the West; we have had too much violence in the last decade.
We want to live in a harmonious society and peace. The Danish media must accept responsibility in which they have caused offence and had initially caused the problem in inciting certain individuals who have passion and love for their faith.
The Danish media is to blame.
Imposing religious and moral law will only lurch a state to more theocracy (rather than democracy) where it could undermine religious tolerance and civil liberty in the country.
The September 11, 2001 event was an act of revulsion that was committed in the name of Islam, and Islamic States including Malaysia and Arab countries blunted their criticism relatively to the U.S. occupation of Muslim land in the Arab world or U.S. affiliation with repressive regimes in Muslim countries counting mainly at U.S. support for the State of Israel as the root of terrorism.
Theocratical states (especially Islamic states these days) are less venerating to democracy and human rights. They draw religious lines between Muslim and Non-Muslim moving the Islamic world to fanaticism, while others may label it Islamo Fascism.
Raping woman, killing children, pillaging agricultural villages, destroying lives.
The attention of the world is much too slowly turning its head to address the rampant and unmitigated devastation occurring in Sudan that has in the past 18 months left more than 50,000 savagely murdered and 1.5 million more among the families of those unfortunate dead as displaced refugees in ill-equipped camps and neighboring countries. This is a UN recognized human rights atrocity; the situation in Sudan is a grave emergency! Devastatingly, the attention that Sudan has received from commercial media - which is largely focused on the situation in Iraq - has not expressed the gravity of the situation.
Who is killing who in Sudan and why? The current campaign of ethnic cleansing is intent on eliminating several sedentary African tribal groups, motivated by a struggle for power in Khartoum, Sudan's capital. The killing campaign is being conducted by a hired militia at the bidding of an imposed, abusive, and controversial government struggling to retain its power over a nation of people that wants the fanatical government routed. While the urgency for action and assistance has never been keener, the conflict has actually been long standing. Sudan as a whole has been embroiled in 50 years of civil war and rebellion between the usually tyrannical power in Khartoum and the southern populations that do not want to live under the Khartoum government's religious and dictatorial policies.
To understand why the groups are in conflict, you need to first acquaint yourself with the region. Sudan is in East Africa, just South of Egypt, East of Chad, and North of Kenya. The population is a conglomerate of Arabs and Africans, nomadic pastoralists and farmers, Muslims, Christians, and Animists (those believing that everything in nature has a soul). These people of Sudan have been in conflict ever since the British abandoned the region in 1956. Upon their leaving, the British undemocratically passed control to one group of ethnically-foreign Arab northerners in the capital city, Khartoum. This empowered groups' policy of disregarding civil rights and instituting classical Islamic rule over the ethnically diverse Southern population has spawned the 50 years of civil war, famine, and human rights violations that have never been effectively dealt with. Compounded by the discovery of oil in the Sudan South in the 1970s, the Northern dictatorial government breached beyond merely unfair policy and began trying to dominate the natural resources of the South. Still, the worst of problems had yet to come.
By the 1980s, a series of poignant civil rights abuses aroused fear in the southern populations. The increasingly fanatical Islamized northern government had been abusing its power by dismantling the constitutional rights for people in the southern region and by imposing Shariya Law - traditional Muslim Law Code - over the ethnically diverse southern populations. In 1985, the southern borne Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) led a popular uprising that succeeded in expelling the Northern Arab government. The SPLM revolt was successful in replacing the government and at ushering in the installation of a democratically oriented - but still religious - Islamic government. This progress lead to peace talks that gave many hope for a stable Sudan; but the steps forward were not to last. In 1989, as peace agreements were being consolidated between the democratized Islamic government in Khartoum and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement in the South and just as the government was finally preparing to freeze the Shariya Islamic Law Code, General Omar al-Bashir lead the National Islamic Front in a coup against the liberating government to bring back the authoritarian Arabic form of Islamic government.
The Southern Sudanese hopes' had been dashed and there worst fears rekindled; upon Omar's imposition, he abolished the constitution that protected the Southern populations, censured his opponents by outlawing opposition parties, and he revamped Khartoum's control of the controversial Shariya Law by imposing, additionally, a traditional Islamic Justice System which began dealing out death liberally. Omar then proceeded to declare Jihad, a holy war in the name of Mohammad, against the non-Muslim and democratic African-Muslim people of Sudan.
The National Islamic Front government continued to polarize the Sudanese people and its actions began even to alienate Khartoum from its neighboring countries. Accused of attempting to incite jihad in eastern neighbor Eritrea, and of assisting in an assassination attempt on Egyptian President Mubarak during his visit to Sudan's eastern neighbor Ethiopia, and because Sudan was recognized for harboring terrorists such as Osama bin Laden who used Sudan as a base for executing the 1998 bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, General Omar's government became regionally isolated but Omar al-Bashir remains in power still today.
Omar's fundamentalist government, supported by their oil reserves, military technology, and fear, continue to push forward. Their campaign however is not fueled by purely by religious zeal as it may appear at first glance. It is much more ethnically motivated, pitting the Arabic Muslim government against the African, dark-skinned Muslim and non-Muslims of greater Sudan. The African Muslims are mostly sedentary tribal peoples, agricultural societies that embrace diversity. The Arabic government fosters the form of ethnic fanaticism that has plagued the Middle East, such as in Iraq where Arabic Sunnis have in the past threatened and massacred Islamic Shiites and Kurds.
By 2003, Omar's mistreatment of even his northern contingents and tribal populations in the area called Darfur, lead the tribal groups to mount a rebellion. In April 2003, in the name of human, social, and economic rights, and impassioned by their suffering, the Muslim tribal peoples of the Fur, the Zaghawa, and the Massaleit, allied under the two names, the Sudanese Liberation Movement (SLM) and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), took up arms against Omar's militarily defended government. Despite inferior resources, they actually achieved a string of victories.
At this point, fearing further retaliation, Omar made one of the most horrific moves that any dictator could entertain. He called upon nomadic Arabic horsemen in Sudan to enlist in a Janjaweed militia, promising a gun and additional payment of $116 a month in order to rape, route, and kill the African people of Darfur. Janjaweed is translated from Arabic as "man with a gun on a horse" but the Janjaweed are generally known as nomadic bandits. The government motivated the Janjaweed to carry out their mission in the Darfur region with racist incentive; told that their job was to cleanse Darfur of its darker skinned inhabitants. They were too given the additional incentive that their monthly payment would come from the booty plundered in the villages which they attacked.
For the last 18 months, the janjaweed have terrorized unabashed the tribal people of Darfur with a scorched earth policy, destroying the villages they attack. "They dump human corpses in wells to contaminate the water supply, essentially doing whatever is necessary to force the black African Muslims from their land never to return" says the report from the office of Congressman Wolf on what he witnessed while visiting.
You know when they are coming because they don't come alone. First you here the low pitched hum of the helicopters approaching. This is when most of the able villagers dash into the forest for sake of their lives. As the helicopter gun ship arrives, it first strafes the village destroying housing and killing people that have not left. It will often unload supplies for the janjaweed militia that follow close behind, coming out of the forest on horseback to finish the killing, raping, and destruction making the village uninhabitable, and to collect bounty from the village.
The government of Omar al-Bashir denies involvement, aid, or support of the raids. They maintain that the culprits are just uncontrolled bandits. Their overt lie is not much believed by anyone, as it is plainly obvious that the nomadic janjaweed alone are by no means capable to be flying the attack helicopters.
To date, the actions of the government and its militia have displaced over 1 million people from their homes, consolidating them into 129 crowded concentration camps monitored and surrounded by more janjaweed. These are what is called internally displaced people (IDPs). Their camps are ill-resourced. In Mornay, the largest camp with 70,000 people, rains carry human excrement back through the camp. At least 160 thousand Darfurians have escaped across the western border of Sudan to Chad. Few of them will ever be able to return to their home. If the refugees leave their camp, the janjaweed are there waiting for them just beyond the borders says the Wolf Congressional report. Rape of Sudanese woman is a daily reality for these refugees. They are forced to accept it, they must leave the camp to gather firewood for their families and straw to feed their cattle. The janjaweed tell the girls they rape that they are "trying to make their babies lighter." The janjaweed have even instituted a policy of branding the raped girls and woman so as not to mistake them. Murder of the male IDPs is a constant threat as well.
This is a holocaust going in Sudan today, directly in our site. After the holocaust of WWII where six million Jews were murdered by the Nazi forces, and again after failing to intervene to stop the devastating genocide of 800,000 ethnic Tutsis in Rwanda in 1994, the world has now twice said "never again" to genocide. This is your chance to not only to say never again but to act on your intention. Get informed, read a few articles, you will understand the situation and realize why it is so devastatingly clear that this is a genocide that must be confronted immediately.
In the past months, the government in Sudan has been coming under increased - but still feeble - international pressure to address and respond to the crises. Kofi Anan and Colin Powell have both visited the region and agree it is a problem that needs to be dealt with, but what have they done to accomplish this? Currently the UN is discussing so they can make a declaration as to whether or not these atrocities may be considered a genocide. This is after a recent Security Council Resolution that urged the Khartoum government to better control the devastation in the region and to help ensure the security in the IDP camps. Do you believe it is appropriate to hold the same group which is responsible for instigating the atrocity as the group to hold responsible for ensuring the security of the region? Obviously the UN Security Council does. So who is guarding the camps? The janjaweed, the same people that were commissioned and brainwashed for murdering the Darfurians are now being publicly sanctioned by the UN to carry "defensive" weapons that will allow them to defend the safety of the black African people in the refugee camps.
The UN Security Council Resolution had the opportunity to send a clear message to the Khartoum government. Instead what do they do? They approved that more African Union monitoring forces should come to Sudan to oversee the situation. They failed to issue an arms embargo ensuring the Sudan government will have continued access to weapons. The UN also failed to inflict any real pressure on the Sudan government by passing on their opportunity to impose an oil embargo. An embargo would have forced Sudan to address the problem.
"The [UN] Security Council has ensured that the Sudanese government will have the resources necessary to continue its scorched-earth campaign in Darfur," said Human Rights Watch, an international non-profit human rights watchdog group. Instead of providing a resolution that sends a clear message to Khartoum indicating how serious the world is about putting an end to the atrocities, they committed a toothless resolution providing no real incentive for al-Bashir to respond.
This makes good sense. The UN is incapable of responding appropriately to human rights issues. You will agree if you look at who is one of the 14 member states on the UN Human Rights Commission: Sudan. Yes, the same government that fosters the genocide of ethnically African black Muslims in Sudan is a voting member on human rights issues.
Reasonably, you are probably appalled by what you have learned about Sudan. You know you can not rely on the UN to do anything constructive regarding this matter. Little known to most, the United States has actually been supporting the reabsorption of refugees from Sudan. Four years ago, the United States allowed the immigration of 7,000 black Sudanese refugees, actually victims of a different struggle against the same government. Many of these are young boys from southern Sudan who lost their parents violently while trying to escape the onslaught of northern Sudanese forces. They are now known as the Lost Boys. A group of at least 100 of them now call San Diego their home and are actively trying to build themselves a new life in this new world, along with all the trappings of modernity.
Take it upon yourself to learn, to discuss, and to represent what you know is right. Make sure that who ever wins the election for president on November 2 knows that giving attention to Sudan needs to be a priority for the United States. Don't wait to speak out and don't be afraid to raise the issue, it is not a very contested topic outside Sudan.

Document of Congressman Wolf's impression.
Dear Mr. Prime Minister,
We the undersigned, as the Iranian community of Canada and U.S. would like to express our thanks for your government's efforts in the case of Canadian journalist who was murdered in Iran, the Late Ms. Kazemi. We would like to remind your Excellency that it is greatly important for the Iranian community all across the world that the truth is known about the circumstances surrounding the arrest, torture and murder of Canadian journalist Ms. Kazemi in the hands of Islamic Republic officials. It is needless to say that Ms. Kazemi's case is just an example of what the government of Iran feels entitled to do to its current or former citizens.
Your Excellency, we demand the full protection of our rights under Canadian as well as International laws. The government of Iran must not be allowed to violate the basic human rights of its citizens, let alone the citizens of other countries and Canada. The international community and the Canadian government must make it clear to the government of the Islamic republic that they will not be allowed to get away with these violations.
Your Excellency, we demand that your government cut all ties with the Islamic republic should the government of Iran continue to refuse to send the body of Ms. Kazemi back to Canada for a fair and transparent investigation and continues to violate the rights of Iranian citizens. We would also like to express our full trust in the Canadian Criminal Courts and system. We would also like to express our support and appreciation of the Canadian Law enforcement in Vancouver British Colombia and let you know that the Iranian community resent the shameless allegations of the Islamic republic officials with regards to the tragic accident in Vancouver B.C.
Since it came into existence, Pakistan has been trying to break India. It has fought three wars with India and more recently in 1999 tried to occupy Indian territory in Kargil. In this process Pakistan itself got disintegrated, but still it has not given up. Its latest weapon against India is it poor and unemployed youths, who are brain washed into becoming Islamic fundamentalist and sent to India to kill innocent people.
Due to this Islamic fundamentalism Pakistan has become threat to civilized societies. Pakistan supported and promoted Taliban has wrecked havoc in Afghanistan. Pakistan is trying to do the same thing in India.
