“Tariq Ramadan has come here to make sure our children become the fifth column against Western civilization," Tarek Fatah, founder of the Canadian Muslim Congress, told a press conference sponsored by Point de bascule in Montreal. He also accused Tariq of trying to make Muslims turn against their country and of being a parasite and termite. Tarek says that Ramadan is “conning people out of their freedom”.
See video of the conference below.
On his last visit in November, Point de Bascule sponsored a full-page advertisement in daily Le Devoir accusing Ramadan of hiding his true views on Muslim fundamentalism behind a facade of moderation.
Last week, Ramadan visited the United States for the first time since 2004, when the Bush government barred him from entering for having made donations to a charity linked to Hamas, the militant Palestinian group. The Obama administration recently lifted the ban.Write comment (0 Comments)

While most attention on the scourge of religion is focused on the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa is emerging as a place where religion dominates people's lives. Nominally, most of these Africans are either Christian (57%) or Muslim (29%) but they also still cling to primitive beliefs such as witchcraft, sacrifices to ancestors, traditional religious healers and reincarnation. Unsurprisingly, amongst these people, Muslims have a worse reputation for violence than Christians although Christians also practice such primitive barbaric practices as female genital mutilation. There are more Muslims in the north of Africa so that for the African continent, Muslims and Christians are roughly balanced, with 400 million to 500 million followers each.Write comment (0 Comments)

In just over a month, the scandal and outrage over sexual abuse by Catholic priests has grown enormously. The details have come out bit by bit and the Church has been unable to manage it. As a minimum they should hire a spin doctor or two but it appears that with a few exceptions, they just don't think it's a big issue! They don't understand that covering up abuse of children by priests is criminal and they are effectively condoning the actions of the priests. And what are they going to do if the pope is arrested as Hitchens and Dawkins want to do? No matter which way you look at it, the Catholic Church is sinking fast. Opinion in the U.S. since February has turned against the pope's handling of the abuse issue - his approval has dropped from 59% to 35% amongst all Americans and from 78% to 59%. Fortunately for the pope, he does not govern a democracy. CNNWrite comment (0 Comments)
