Canadian Muslim group with reprehensible links issues libel notice to Prime Minister Harper

According to the CTV website, The National Council of Canadian Muslims "is demanding an apology from Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his chief spokesman for a comment it says links the organization to a terrorist group. The National Council of Canadian Muslims has filed a notice of libel in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice that accuses Jason MacDonald of acting maliciously.."

Following complaints from the Muslim group about the inclusion of a rabbi who participated in an event with anti-Jihadist activists Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer with the Prime Minister's delegation to Israel, PMO spokesman Jason MacDonald stated, "We will not take seriously criticism from an organization with documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas."

Until last July, NCCM was known as CAIR-CAN, and was the Canadian branch of the US-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR was listed in court documents as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Terror-financing trial. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported, Assistant US Attorney General Ronald Welch concluded that trial transcripts "demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and HAMAS, which was designated as a terrorist organization in 1995."

The Quebec-based blog Point de Bascule has documented members of CAIR-CAN's leaderhip endorsing extremist Muslim groups including the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the parent organization from which the terror group Hamas sprang. That blog also noted:
In 2002, while she was CAIR-CAN Chair, Sheema Khan endorsed Youssef Qaradawi by introducing him as a “renowned Muslim scholar” to her Globe and Mail readers. Youssef Qaradawi is the most important leader of the Muslim Brotherhood international network, its spiritual leader. He is also considered Hamas’ spiritual guide. In the past, his fatwas have been quoted by Hamas to justify its suicide operations against civilians at the heart of Israel.
The 'renowned Muslim scholar' to whom the then CAIR-CAN Chair referred is a anti-Semitic fanatic who has said that Allah used Hitler as a "divine punishment" for the Jews and has claimed Jews exaggerated the Holocaust.

Lawfare is a tactic that Muslims groups in Canada are attempting to use to silence criticism and exposure of their activities. But they are having limited success. Only last month, a Federal Court upheld a decision by Canada's Citizenship Minister Jason Kenney to cease federal funding for the Canadian Arab Federation. The judge agreed with Kenney's view that the Arab organization appeared to be anti-Semitic and to support terror groups, and ordered them to pay the Minister's court costs.

By taking on the Prime Minister's office, the National Council of Canadian Muslims may find that the rather than being vindicated, they end up highlighting their own reprehensible associations.
