Remember those miscreants from Mississauga? Married mostly. And once again, occasional reader Zane dredges up a bit of the damning:
“All muslim politicians are corrupt,” she writes. “There’s no one out there willing to rule the country by the laws of Allah, rather they fight to rule the country by the laws of democracy.” She criticizes Muslims in places such as Dubai for spending money on elaborate buildings while Iraqis are being killed.
Ms. Farooq’s criticism is often directed first at other Muslims. When another poster writes about how he finds homosexuality disgusting, Nada replies by pointing out that there are even gay Muslims. She then posts a photo of a rally held by Al-Fatiha, a Canadian support group for gay Muslims. “Look at these pathetic people,” she writes. “They should all be sent to Saudi, where these sickos are executed or crushed by a wall, in public.”
I wonder what it is, with all this public wall-crushing. Do people build walls just for the purpose of murdering the gender heterodox or do they just use whatever piece of urban decay comes in handy?
Anyways, these particular ladies’ fondness for their adopted country is conspicuously absent:
Ms. Farooq is never comfortable with life in Canada… Ms. Farooq’s hatred for the country is palpable. She hardly ever calls Canada by its name, rather repeatedly referring to it as “this filthy country.” It’s a sentiment shared by many of her friends, one of whom states that the laws of the country are irrelevant because they are not the laws of God.
In late April of 2004, a poster asks the forum members to share their impressions of what makes Canada unique. Nada’s answer is straightforward.
“Who cares? We hate Canada.”
And based on some of the comments received by the Globe and Mail, portions of Canada are starting to hate her right back.
Too much hate, all the way around, and I share this cautiously, merely as an interesting read. I have no desire to turn this space into a place for Muslim-bashing, or any other identity bashing, for that matter – there’s quite enough of that going on already, to my lights.
Because when it comes to hate? We just need to remember that this sort of thing starts at home.
