‘Canadian’ Muslims mock 9/11, call Obama ‘Mr. Black Man’

My husband (and his video camera) didn’t make it inside this meeting in our neighborhood on Sunday, but the National Post‘s “free speech” beat reporter Joseph Brean did.

Here’s what he saw and heard:

These brief remarks were among the least controversial at a conference about the “Media War on Islam” on Sunday at a Toronto-area Islamic centre, in which the Christmas Day underwear bomber was described as the tool of an Israeli plot;

Barack Obama was referred to as “Mr. Black Man”;

al-Qaeda was called “the figment of the imagination of the West”;

and a video was shown that mocked 9/11 by putting the Muppet Show logo over slow-motion footage of the second plane’s impact, with screams of terror for audio.

(…)

Inside the hall, among the audience of 300 or so, organizer Zafar Bangash welcomed his Iranian guest by quipping that, even with freedom of assembly, the [anti-Iranian dictatorship] protesters only managed to summon a “pathetic” two dozen to the rural roadside gates of the Islamic Society of York Region.

Mr. Bangash also held up for the audience a clear plastic bag full of what he said were burned pages of the Koran, rescued recently from the parking lot of a nearby plaza after [the Muslim] protesters — the same ones who were outside, he said — set the holy book on fire.

He said he told police that if protesters were to trespass, “I guarantee nothing,” to which the audience responded with chants of “Allahu Akbar.”

The program started with a prayer from the Koran, sung beautifully by a boy in Arabic, and translated to English by another boy who, by his tone, clearly understood its message about the punishment of cities for their depravity.

(…)

The keynote speaker, given the absences, was Michael Keefer, a professor of literary theory at the University of Guelph, who said that all mainstream news media is “systematically fake” because “news editors have internalized the values of their advertisers.”

He described 9/11 as a “planned demolition” run by Americans, and the Toronto 18 bomb plot, which led to convictions and guilty pleas, as a “police frame-up” over “nothing of significance.”
