Christine Douglass-Williams has been fired by the Government of Canada from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation. This action draws attention to just how committed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to the Islamic supremacist cause and the degree to which submission to it exists within the Canadian government.
While no reason was given for the firing, Williams’ writings at Jihad Watch, which warn against the dangers of political Islam, had put her under scrutiny, despite being separate from her Foundation work. Douglass-Williams’ recent book, The Challenge of Modernizing Islam, may have also added to this concern.
Observers are not surprised. Prime Minister Trudeau has consistently supported the cause of political Islam since his election as a Member of Parliament in 2008 and his becoming Prime Minister in 2015.
In 2014, Trudeau visited the Al Sunnah Mosque in his home riding. The mosque was identified by the Pentagon as a place where “al-Qaida members were recruited, facilitated or trained.” Canadian journalists carried out an undercover operation and found that the Imams had called for God to kill “all the enemies of Islam.” They stated that the youth were the “ammunition of our community” and should be prepared for a Holy War.
In September of 2016, Prime Minister Trudeau “visited a gender-segregated mosque whose imam is a member of a group considered a terrorist organization abroad.” Following the publication of this story, journalist Anthony Furey was contacted at home by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). He was pressured to withdraw the story, despite PMO’s inability to point out a single error. Furey was then called Islamophobic by the PMO and told he was “irresponsible.”
Stunningly, the Government used a letter from the National Council of Canadian Muslims/CAIR-CAN to prepare its case against Douglass-Williams. The parent organization of NCCM/CAIR-CAN is CAIR USA, which is a listed terrorist group in the United Arab Emirates, with a series of established direct and indirect connections to funding terrorism in the USA.
The executive director of NCCM/CAIR-CAN, Ihsaan Gardee, has misled the Parliament and press concerning his parent organization, CAIR USA. Gardee told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that there are no connections between them. He made the same assertions to the Parliament of Canada.
These assertions are false. NCCM/CAIR-CAN was founded to support CAIR USA and both organizations have made claims concerning their partnership. The US Department of State believes that NCCM/CAIR-CAN is the Canadian chapter of the CAIR USA.
Douglass-Williams’ firing is worrying as it emanates from the Canadian Heritage Ministry – the same ministry which is holding hearings into the anti-Islamophobia Motion M103. This motion was entered into the Parliament by Iqra Khalid. This is noteworthy, as Member of Parliament Iqra Khalid claims to have written the Constitution for the York University Muslim Student Association. The constitution of the York University MSA states that it is Salafist in orientation and supports Sharia Law.
This firing does not occur in isolation. It has been revealed that ISIS fighters returning to Canada have not had their names put forward to the UN committee for the list of international jihadists. Furthermore, Prime Minister Trudeau has stated that terrorist travelers from ISIS can be “an extraordinarily powerful voice” for deradicalization. Prime Minister Trudeau also states that “we have methods of de-emphasizing or de-programming people who want to harm our society.” This claim despite the fact that the Canadian government’s leaderless Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence does not have a deradicalization program, nor is there any such “bricks and mortar” centre in Canada. Furthermore, Canada appears to lack any law that could force the ISIS fighters to attend a program if it existed. France, by example, just sponsored a similar program which was a total failure.
Canada’s Minister for Public Safety, Ralph Goodale, appears out of sync with the Prime Minister. Mr. Goodale says that the “likelihood of successfully reintegrating ISIS fighters is pretty remote.”
Canada’s unclear position on prosecuting returning ISIS fighters, along with Prime Minister Trudeau’s unwavering support for Islamic supremacists over the last nine years, should be of concern to Americans as well. Previous attempts by Canadian based terrorists to attack America have included Ahmed Ressam in 1999, Chiheb Esseghaier in 2013 and Abdulrahman El Bahnasawy, who was convicted of an attempted attack in New York City in 2016.
The firing of Christine Douglass-Williams should be seen in a specific context. Canada has an Islamic supremacist entryist problem in government. The Prime Minister has addressed a gathering of Muslim Brotherhood linked groups in Canada and told them that he shared their beliefs, values, and vision. The Prime Minister also says that returning ISIS fighters can be a “powerful voice” while the government does not have a deradicalization program and ISIS fighter’s names are not added to the list of international jihadists. Trudeau demonstrated his greatest show of passion ever in parliament as he defended ISIS fighters, when confronted by opposition leader Andrew Scheer over ISIS fighters returning to Canada.
Anyone who speaks out against this support for the cause of political Islam will be silenced by the Government of Canada as it moves towards a greater acceptance of Islamic extremism and violence.
