More on the anti-Sharia protests in Canada. From the Globe and Mail, with thanks to Paul:
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty will let down women and help the cause of political Islam if he allows faith-based arbitration to go ahead, anti-sharia demonstrators charged yesterday at an emotional rally in Toronto.
The protest was one of 12 in cities across Canada and Europe, as women’s and human-rights groups lobbied against a proposal to allow sharia tribunals in Ontario.
Homa Armojand, co-ordinator of the campaign, told about 300 protesters at Queen’s Park that the lobby to allow faith-based arbitration for Muslims in Ontario is “not a coincidence, but part of a global move pushed by leaders of political Islam who need validation from the government of the West.”
“McGuinty flirting with political Islam is playing a dangerous game,” Ms. Armojand said. “He is putting the lives of women and children in jeopardy. Shame.”
