A warning from Tarek Fatah

On his facebook page, Tarek Fatah has written an open letter warning about an impending visit to Toronto by a radical Muslim cleric, Zakir Naik, who Fatah reports as having said, ""every Muslim should be a terrorist." Whether this was intended as ironic is something I can't say, but radical Muslim clerics are seldom known for their sense of irony.

The text of Fatah's letter is below:


Friends,

Zakir Naik is an Indian Islamist firebrand who has preached hatred towards non-Muslims and who is on record of saying, "every Muslim should be a terrorist." This jihadi televangelist was to speak in Britain to tens of thousands of radical Islamists, but he has now been banned from entering the UK.

With a trip to London now out of question, what does good old Zakir Naik do? He gets invited to a Toronto Islamic Conference where is touted to be the "featured speaker" on July 2, 2010 at Toronto's Metro Convention Centre. Here is the link: http://journeyconference.com/

 Who says we Canadians are not suckers for punishment. Will we welcome this hate-monger or will our government do the right thing and tell this ugly preacher to take his hate somewhere else? Only time will tell.


In the meantime, read and reflect.


Tarek

UPDATE: June 22 - The National Post reports that Zakir naik will not be permitted entry to Canada.

Thank God. Under a Liberal government, he would have been allowed entry, and felt brazen enough to go on a national University speaking tour. Probably starting with the U of Ottawa.
