CIC- Muslims

Do please  Tell them this.. If they do not wrong they have nothing to fear.

"Tuesday 7 February 2006 Conservative cabinet raises fears of police state: Canadian Islamic Congress - Following yesterday’s appointments to Canada’s new Conservative Cabinet of Ministers, the Canadian Islamic Congress (CIC), a controversial organization purporting to represent Canadian Muslims said today in a press release that "the features of an emergent police state in Canada are many". These features, explains the CIC, include the renewal of the Anti-Terrorism Act, security certificate detentions which have kept non-Canadian suspected terrorists locked up and alleged racial profiling. The CIC said that it now "fears that police-state politics which began under the former Liberal regime will soon emerge in an accelerated and enlarged form" under the new Conservative goverment. In the last two federal campaigns, the CIC has come out strongly against the Conservative party platform, alleging that if elected, the Conservatives would pursue an aggressive foreign policy abroad and would damage social justice at home. The CIC charges that the results of these anti-terrorist measures erode Canadians’ civil liberties and favour the emergence of a police state in Canada, which it fears could be precipitated by what the CIC calls the "most feared five": Stockwell Day (Public Safety Minister), Peter MacKay (Foreign Affairs Minister), Lawrence Cannon (Transport minister), Vic Toews (Justice Minister) and Monte Solberg (Citizenship and Immigration Minister). The press release did not explain why the CIC deems the five ministers should be feared by Canadians. Interestingly, the CIC wants to open dialogue with the new fearsome cabinet and gives details on the number of Muslims it alleges voted for the Conservatives. The CIC is best known to Canadians for the declaration of its president Mohammed Elmasry in late 2004 to the effect that all Israeli adults are legitimate targets for Palestinian terrorists because Israel has a people’s army."

(Rom 13:3 KJV)  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4   For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

Bush asks governments to stop violence over cartoons By Tabassum Zakaria Reuters Wednesday, February 8, 2006; 11:11 AM

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush on Wednesday said governments around the world should protect the lives and property of diplomats against the violence that has erupted over published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad... he called "a topic that requires a lot of discussion and a lot of sensitive thought."  "We believe in a free press, and also recognize that with freedom comes responsibilities.  With freedom comes the responsibility to be thoughtful about others," Bush said. But, he added: "We reject violence as a way to express discontent with what may be printed in a free press." Violence has flared around the Muslim world after caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad were first published in a Danish daily, and then reprinted across Europe. Muslims view the portrayal as blasphemous. An Iranian newspaper in retaliation has launched a competition calling for cartoons about the Holocaust. Bush said, "I call upon the governments around the world to stop the violence, to be respectful, to protect property, to protect the lives of innocent diplomats who are serving their countries overseas."King Abdullah condemned the cartoons, but said protests should be conducted peacefully. 

"DETECTIVES investigating the radical Islamic preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri uncovered evidence that Islamic terrorists are operating training camps inside the UK, it emerged yesterday. As Hamza was jailed for seven years for inciting the murder of Jews and "unbelievers", police revealed they had recovered gas masks, chemical, biological and nuclear protective suits, blank passports, hunting knives and blank-firing weapons from the London mosque where he preached. They said they believed the materials were intended for use in training camps in the UK. Previous inquiries have focused on recruits travelling to al-Qaeda camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Last night it was reported that three of the Britons who carried out the suicide bomb attacks on London's transport system on 7 July last year had heard Hamza preach. Hamza will face extradition to the United States on a series of terrorism charges when he is eventually released. The US accuses him of having links to high ranking Taleban and al-Qaeda figures and of helping recruits to travel to the terrorist network's training camps in Afghanistan. The 47-year-old Egyptian-born preacher was convicted on 11 counts, including soliciting murder, stirring up racial hatred and possessing a training manual "of use to terrorists". The judge, Mr Justice Hughes, ordered him to serve all 11 sentences concurrently, the longest of which was seven years. "He was directly and deliberately stirring up hatred against Jewish people and encouraging murder of those he referred to as non-believers," the Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement afterwards. "Not only did he repeatedly advocate that Muslims should kill non-believers, he set out to persuade his listeners that it was part of their religious duty to do so," it said. Downing Street later said the conviction strengthened the case for further legislation. Tony Blair's official spokesman said: "What it shows is that the original decision to prosecute was the right one and that should give the public some assurance about the government's determination to uphold the law in this matter. "We are putting forward further proposals which will come to parliament next week and we hope we attract as much support as possible." Hamza's lawyer, Muddassar Arani, said he would appeal: "He feels that he is a prisoner of faith and this is a slow martyrdom for him," she said. Security sources now say that Hamza was a key figure in the global jihadi movement in the late 1990s and early part of this decade, with an extensive sphere of influence. When police first raided his home in 1999, they found inside what was later described in court as a "terrorism manual" containing a dedication to Osama bin Laden, sections on explosives and handguns, recipes for poisons, information on how to carry out an assassination and suggested targets such as skyscrapers, the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben. They took it away, with tapes of some of his speeches, but later returned it. Hamza had been interviewed regularly by the British security services since 1997 and would continue to talk to them until 2000. He later recalled that they seemed more interested in protecting his freedom of speech than prosecuting him for encouraging terrorism. It was only three years after the attacks of 11 September, 2001, that anyone decided the manual might be significant. By then the Finsbury Park mosque in north London had been raided as part of an investigation into a plot to manufacture ricin. Inside the mosque, police discovered materials they suspected were intended for use in British terrorist training camps. In 2004, Hamza's home in west London was raided again by police executing an extradition warrant on behalf of US authorities who wanted him on 11 charges, including kidnapping and plotting to set up camps. It was only then that they reconsidered the significance of the ten volumes of the Encyclopaedia of Afghani Jihad (one was missing) which had originally been seized. Hamza and the mosque, they concluded, were at the centre of a spider's web of terrorist activity stretching around the world. As the investigation continued, they unearthed more evidence to suggest the mosque had been a breeding ground for Islamic terrorism in the six years Hamza had been in control. As its central figure, he had a powerful influence on those who passed through its doors. They included the 9/11 plotter Zacarias Moussaoui, the shoe-bomber Richard Reid, Omar Sharif, who planned to take part in an attack on an Israeli bar in 2003, the Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada, said by Britain to have been the spiritual inspiration for 9/11, and Frenchman Jamal Zougam, one of the prime suspects accused of plotting the Madrid train bombings. Kamel Bourgass, convicted over the 2003 ricin plot, stayed at the mosque and copies of "recipes" on making ricin were made on a photocopier there. The head of Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch, Peter Clarke, said: " It was almost like a honey pot for extremists. It had a reputation not just across this country but Europe and beyond as a place that extremists could gather and feel comfortable. It could almost have been described as a safe haven." It was during a raid on the mosque by about 150 officers in January 2003 that police recovered the items that led them to believe terrorist training camps were operating in Britain. "The suspicion of the anti- terrorist branch was that this was probably material used in training camps in the UK," one police source said. "We've never been able to pinpoint their locations, who was running them or what sort of activities were going on." Hamza has become something of a hate figure among those perturbed by a perceived rise in Islamic fundamentalism in the UK. His appearance - he lost both hands and an eye in Afghanistan and wears a hook on his right arm - has inspired uncomplimentary headlines. Yet his persuasive oratory and virulent anti-western rants inspired scores of impressionable young Muslims and he became a magnet for radicals worldwide. At one private meeting in east London he called on the audience to sacrifice itself. "We ask Muslims to do that, to be capable to do that, to be capable to bleed the enemies of Allah anywhere, by any means," he told them. "You can't do it by nuclear weapon, you do it by the kitchen knife, no other solution. You cannot do it by chemical weapons, you have to do it by mice poison. Like you imagine you have one small knife and you have a big animal in front of you. "The size of the knife - you cannot slaughter him with this. You have to stab him here and there until he bleeds to death. Then you can cut up the meat, or leave it to the maggots. This is the first stage of jihad."   Passing sentence yesterday, Mr Justice Hughes said Hamza had used his authority to encourage his audiences to believe they had a "duty" to murder.  He had "helped to create an atmosphere in which to kill has become regarded by some as not only a legitimate course but a moral and religious duty in pursuit of perceived justice.   "No-one can say now what damage your words may have caused - whether any of your audiences acted on your words.   "I am satisfied that you are and were a person whose views and the manner of expression of those views created a real danger to the lives of innocent people in different parts of the world." "

The Arab European League (AEL), a Dutch-Belgian Islamic organization, launched last Friday, a "cartoon campaign" in response to the publication of Mohammed cartoons in several European dailies. The cartoons include depictions of Anne Frank in bed with Hitler and Holocaust-denial motives. In a statement introducing the cartoons, the AEL claims: "Just like the newspapers in Europe claim that they only want to defend the freedom of speech and do not desire to stigmatise Muslims,we also do stress that our cartoons are not meant as an offence to anybody and ought not to be taken as a statement against any group, community or historical fact."

Muslims do the same thing they protest against.. and now how hypocritical it is too.

and in Canada we wrongfully  do still let them preach hate???
