It used to be that we were worried that Communists and Russia were going to take over - they made no secret of the fact that they wanted the world to be communist. But now, it's Islam that wants to take over. Not a political philosophy but a religion. As Muslims are quick to tell everyone - only Islam is right and anyone who believes to the contrary is wrong and should be converted or even killed. Just like the Christians of a few centuries ago, they have zero tolerance for other beliefs. The only reason why there is not already all-out war is that many Muslims, like many Christians, don't accept all that they are told. But those that do push their intolerance include nuclear powers (Pakistan) and soon to become nuclear powers (Iran - see Iranium). Scary stuff.
In Toronto, there are Islamic books being sold that push conquest. Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi wrote: "Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam," "Islam requires the earth - not just a portion - but the whole planet." (Toronto Sun) You could dismiss him as an aberration except that his books are still being distributed, sold and read by devout Muslims. These books are alongside others on "how to beat your wife".
But it's not just bookstores wanting to cater to extremist Muslims, it's Iran as a country that is working to convert everyone to Islam. How else can we interpret their latest actions? It was recently reported that their embassy in Canada has been actively infiltrating our Government and institutions. (CTV News) The way they do it is by recruiting Iranians who study or work in Canada to report back to the embassy. They then use that information to "influence" Iranians in Canada They do that by "threaten(ing) to hurt families in Iran or to hurt them personally and physically." Some of their recruits are students that they sponsor for study in Canada and others are Iranians who have immigrated to escape such tyranny. An Iranian Canadian activist group said that: ""They are giving $500 to everyone providing information, especially on Iranians who are active against the regime in Canada."
The Canadian Government says they are very aware of the activities of the Iranian embassy but it was highlighted when Iranian diplomat Hamid Mohammadi (photo right) said in an interview on an Iranian website that: "Iranians living in Canada should be serving Tehran." He went on to say that there were many Iranian-Canadians "working in influential government positions" and called on others to "occupy high-level and key positions." (More here at Ottawa Citizen) . You can see his full speech here: Vlad Tepes
One comment he made that I find objectionable:
"…one major distinguishing factor that separates the Islamic-Iranian culture from the rest, it is their resistance to being absorbed and digested by the dominant culture."
To me, the reason you come to a new country is because you like it, you prefer it. The reason it's better is because of its culture. So it's important to accept and adopt the culture of the country you live in - don't bring your culture with you. Your food yes, your jokes and myths yes, maybe some other aspects - but leave your hates, intolerance and your attitudes to women behind.
But it's not just Canada that should be alarmed - Iranians in Canada have an easier access to the U.S. - especially if they have Canadian citizenship. Talk is not enough. One solution would be to shut down the Iranian embassy in Ottawa but the problem with that would be that 3 Canadians currently in an Iranian prison would end up being abandoned to Iranian torture and injustice. The three are Iranian born (Saeed Malekpour, Hamid Ghassemi-Shall and Hossein Derakshan) and were stupid enough to return to Iran - although they could be described as brave. Some would say that we should decree that any Canadian who goes to a place like Iran is on their own - but that's not the "Canadian Way" - we don't want to descend to the hell that is Iran.
Meanwhile, Iran is trying to establish their version of Islam and tyranny worldwide - we must not just sit by and allow it because of political correctness.
