A prominent Canadian Muslim lobbying group, the Canadian Islamic Congress, has decided to make those Canadian politicians who voted against the imposition of Sharia law pay for their decision at the ballot box. Their target: the same Liberal Party which regularly embraces every form of “diversity” imaginable. Not good enough for the CIC, according to the Globe and Mail: (thanks to Twostellas)
A prominent Muslim lobby group urged its members Monday to shun both federal and provincial Liberals at the ballot box in the wake of Ontario’s decision to do away with a proposal to allow the use of Shariah law in faith-based arbitration.
A communiquÃ© from the Canadian Islamic Congress calling on the faithful to reconsider their “traditional Liberal support” was sent to more than 200 mosques across Canada amid questions about whether it’s likely to have much of an impact.
Congress president Mohamed Elmasry said he drafted the missive in hopes of uniting Muslims and influencing Liberal policy before the next federal campaign, expected in the spring.
“We are not impressed by the Liberal record in Ottawa or the provincial Liberals, both in Ontario and Quebec; their attitude regarding faith-based arbitration is religionism, the same as racism,” Mr. Elmasry said.”Canadian Muslims should pay attention, especially at the federal level, in the next six months.”
Although Mr. Elmasry cited Canada’s recently expanded military role in Afghanistan as a major strike against the federal Liberals, Ontario’s recent decision not to allow the use of Shariah was especially galling, he said.
