Where are the hate crime charges?
As we see more and more examples of vile anti-Jewish rhetoric spewed in some mosques, Justin Trudeau remains shamefully silent.
In sharp contrast with his quickness to condemn Canadians as “Islamophobic,” Trudeau seems to be burying his head in the sand when it comes to the truly horrendous things being said by Imams in Canada.
It is a disturbing level of hypocrisy.
For example, CJNews recently reported on a 20 minute YouTube video showing Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr speaking at Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in Montreal.
Al Nasr was reportedly a visiting cleric from the country of Jordan.
A translation revealed some truly horrific comments by Al Nasr.
Among his remarks he said Jews are “the most evil of mankind,” and that allah wanted all Jews killed.
According to more of the translation, Al Nasr also said, “At the end of time when the Muslims will triumph over the most evil of mankind (and) the human demons, the stone and the tree will say: O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”
Clearly, those comments are at the least a hate crime, and even a call to genocide.
A crazy double standard
Justin Trudeau is so far silent on those awful comments. His influential Twitter account, and his well-known global image could do a lot of good by condemning these horrendous anti-Jewish rants.
And yet, Trudeau says nothing.
It seems he is focused only on one type of perceived discrimination. His focus has been on attacking Canadians as “Islamophobic,” and he appears to be ignoring everything else.
Unfortunately, anti-Jewish sentiment is still the most widespread discrimination in Canada. According to a Toronto hate crimes report from the Toronto Police Service, 29.7% of hate crimes were against Jewish people, 16.6% were against LGBTQ people, 15.2% were against Black people, and 15.2% were against Muslim people.
All of that discrimination is wrong and should be addressed and stopped. But if the Prime Minister is going to condemn some discrimination, he must condemn all of it.
The lack of hate crime charges is also quite disturbing. And this all raises a further question: Why was Al Nasr let into the country? Why is the government letting in people who are spewing these horrific calls for violence and genocide?
By imposing such a terrible double standard, Justin Trudeau is failing all Canadians. He must begin actively condemning the horrendous anti-Jewish statements being made at some mosques. He must stop hiding behind political correctness or whatever else is stopping him from taking action.
For once, he must do the right thing and show some courage.
