Canadian Imam Warns: Stop "Terrorizing" Canadian Muslims Or Young Muslims May Become Uncontrollably Sassy

Ummm... hmmmm....

It doesn't lend credibility the "Islam Means Peace" slogan that Muslim clerics keep making demands on their host-countries with terrorist violence none-too-subtly threatend if their demands aren't met.

A controversial Toronto imam warned Public Safety Minister Anne McLellan at a closed-door meeting to stop "terrorizing" Canadian Muslims.

"If you try to cross the line I can't guarantee what is going to happen. Our young people, we can't control," Aly Hindy, the head of Scarborough's Salaheddin Islamic Centre, recalls telling the minister at the May meeting she held in Toronto with dozens of Muslim leaders.

The meeting was part of an effort by Ms. McLellan to reach out to Canadian Muslims amid complaints that the RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service are engaging in racial profiling.

The minister and her officials have been meeting community leaders to explain they are not targeting Muslims generally, only individuals with possible terrorist links.

The imam only meant well, though, he claims:

"The police came to me and said, 'This is a kind of threat,' and I said yes," he said. "But it's for the good of this country.

Ah-ha! Terroristic threats as a public service!

Well, Christians have Goodwill and the Salvation Army. This Imam just figured he'd do his part.

There is a terrorist threat. It comes, almost exclusively, from radical Muslims. Muslims and non-Muslims alike are getting sick of being terrorized -- for real -- ourselves.

This sonofabitch had better get right with the Lord and realize that if these sorts of open threat keep spewing from influential Imams, the "cycle of sassiness" just may well spiral out of control. And it won't necessarily be to his liking.

Not to make threats myself-- I really am against violence -- but other peoples besides Muslims have succumbed to irrational sassiness throughout history.

Not even Candians will put up with dimmitude-through-coercion in their own f'n' country.

Thanks to Jonah at NRO.

A Nice Counterpoint: In England, an Islamic scholar has a different take:

were told they must learn more about British culture while outside National Front extremists organised a flag waving demonstration.

More than 200 NF supporters proclaimed "Britain for the British" while a similar number of police prevented them from approaching the mosque in Regent's Park the moderate Swiss Muslim Dr Tariq Ramadan addressed the meeting.


Speaking to several hundred Muslims on the theme of the "middle way", Dr Ramadan asked younger members of the audience: "Which path will you take?"

He said: "Islamic education is not only about the Koran, it should also be about the environment. It's not just about what we have to promote but also about British history, culture, literature and what we know about the people." He added: "Not everything that comes from our culture is good and not everything that comes from British culture is bad."

Dr Ramadan called on his audience to be more ready to listen to non-Muslims and told them "to stop being on the defensive about being British citizens".

He said: "We have to deal with mistrust. We need mutual trust and knowledge and to return to the Koran. Your brother is not only Muslim, but also non-Muslim."

Dr Ramadan called for an independent inquiry into the shooting at Stockwell Tube station but urged Muslims not to add fuel to the flames: "Our response is to say clearly, altogether we are fighting the same enemy and we are all in the same boat."

All good to hear.

But, as I've said before, laws against criminal incitement are sharply limited (very nearly nullified) by the "clear and present danger" test, at least here in America. I presume other countries similarly limit what is considered actionable incitement.

In the current climate, this sort of speech does in fact constitute clear and present danger. These bastard imams cannot preach hate and violence and terrorism all day long without someone getting the idea that Allah wants blood.
