Condemning Islamophobia Promotes Human Values!

The initiation of the online petition e-411, sponsored by Frank Baylis, the Federal Liberal MP of Peirrefonds-Dollard, comes at a time when extremists from every side are attempting to hijack civic peaceful societies and cause friction amongst groups of people through destructions and devastation.

The world has witnessed many dangerous events: violent “lone wolf” individuals, who are ready to commit bloody criminal attacks on civilians in the name of a religion, extremist groups, politicians; and persons who engage in hate and discriminatory smear campaigns, and people who attack citizens on the streets based on their faith and visible dress codes.

As if this miserable view is not enough, North America is observing a surge in racial tensions, with law enforcement forces being accused of discriminatory use of deadly force against men based on their skin colour. On the other hand, police officers are being ambushed and shot dead by angry individuals.

Canada is witnessing a sharp increase in Islamophobia, which has even been described as an “epidemic” in certain large areas of the country. Citizens are aggressively and physically attacked on the streets, shopping malls, and community centres. Moreover, places of worship are being firebombed and vandalized. Islamophobic political campaigns have become very troubling, mainly during theelection periods. Furthermore, some media outlets add salt to the wound by becoming venues for anti-Muslim rhetoric under the justification of “freedom of speech,” which seems to be without boundaries and irresponsible when it comes to bashing Islam and Muslim citizens.

All human beings deserve to live in peace and safety.

Under this gloomy climate, citizens from all aspects of society, responsible media, and honest, elected decision makers have the civil duty and moral obligation to stand up united to denounce all sorts of discrimination and prejudice. To come together with initiatives that clearly condemn and refuse any act, talk and policies that lead to hatred, hostility and lack of harmony within society.

On June 2nd 2010, The Canadian Muslim Forum (FMC-CMF) led delegations consisting of representatives, young professionals, activists, women advocates and others on Parliamentary Day at the Hill. The main objective of meeting the Federal parties’ caucuses on that day was to introduce and express concerns about Islamophobia, and its impact on Arab and Muslim citizens. From that day, the most noticeable remark was that most of the policy makers were not fully aware of the dangers of Islamophobia, and its implications on Canadian society.

After a long and, at times, very hard journey, Islamophobia is currently recognized as a harsh reality that needs a strong political will and social awareness to undertake, engage in, deal with and find concrete solutions and remedies to cure such an “epidemic” phenomenon and terminate its harmful symptoms from the society at large.

All human beings deserve to live in peace and safety. Attacking women because of their visible faith as they stroll around a shopping mall or take the metro to school or work, denying jobs because of a candidate’s name and background, and vandalizing community and religious properties should stop once and for all. Such aggressions are against woman’s rights, human dignity and the integrity of Canadian society.

Mr. Frank Baylis, federal MP, Pierrefonds-Dollard, recently said on Le Huffingtonpost, “I am against all forms of discrimination. That’s why I am supporting this petition (e-411). It’s not a petition for Muslims; it’s a petition against discrimination.”

Violent extremism represents itself. The perpetrators of acts of devastation have not been voted for to speak on behalf of any religion, cultural or human groups.

Civilized people stand up against all kinds of prejudice, hate-speech, unfairness and intolerance that are expressed in various forms of bigotry, such as anti-Semitism, racial profiling, bias based on personal orientation and Islamophobia. Such a noble stance promotes human values, civil rights and enhances equality amongst all.

To start with , all sorts of violence is condemned . There is no excuse nor legitimacy for any type of violence what so ever.
It’s worth to note the following:
– The moment the attacker has been reported uttering the word “Allah” , right away, and without further delay, media starts dealing with the subject as “terror link”. In other word, since the attacker turned to be of Muslim faith, the word terrorism has to be up promptly.
-It has been reported that that the attacker has said ” Allah Has asked him to do so….” . Basically, this is an issue that needs very careful attention. In Islam the tradition of Allah speaking to individuals doesn’t exist at all. It neither in Islam’s doctrine nor in it’s culture. Even the Prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him, him self had never been “spoken” by Allah swt. In this situation, the mental situation of the attacker should be taken into consideration.
-All sorts of violence looks for kind of legitimacy by the perpetrators. This even apply on those may have issues “mentally” speaking.
-As its becoming the norm, unfortunately, in such incidents ,the hate mongers rush to raise their Islamophobic sentiments at certain media outlets and social media. Toronto police chief has warned of this trend ” “I don’t want this categorizing a large group of people; that will be very unfair and very inaccurate,” he said, adding he doesn’t want to see any of this “Islamophobia nonsense.”

Pour commencer, il n’y a aucune excuse, ni légitimité pour n’importe quel type de violence, quel que soit. Toutes sortes de violence sont condamnées
Il vaut la peine de noter ce qui suit:
– Dès le moment où a été rapporté que l’attaquant a prononcé le mot «Allah», tout de suite et sans plus tarder, médias ont traité le sujet et l’ont lié à un acte de terreur. En d’autres termes, puisque l’attaquant était de confession musulmane, le mot terrorisme est associé directement.
– Il a été rapporté que l’attaquant a dit qu’ “Allah lui a demandé de commettre son acte….”. En l’occurrence , celle-ci est une question qui mérite une attention très particulière. Dans l’Islam, la notion que Dieu parle à des individus n’existe pas. Ceci n’est ni dans la doctrine de l’Islam ni dans sa culture. Même le Prophète Mohammad, que la paix soit sur lui, n’a jamais été «parlé» par Allah swt. Entre autres, la situation mentale de l’attaquant devrait être prise en considération.
– Tout auteur de violence est à la recherche d’une légitimité pour l’acte qu’il a commis. Ceci s’applique, sans exception, à ceux qui peuvent avoir des troubles mentaux.
– Malheureusement, comme ceci semble devenir la norme dans de tels incidents, ceux qui soufflent sur les braises de la haine se précipitent pour démontrer leurs intolérance et annonces leurs propos islamophobes à certains médias et sur les réseaux sociaux. Le chef de la police de Toronto a mis en garde contre cette tendance en disant : « Je ne veux pas que cette catégorisation d’un grand groupe de personnes; ce sera très injuste et très imprécise », tout en ajoutant qu’il ne veut plus voir de cette « absurdité d’islamophobie ».

*Samer Majzoub
The concept of radicalism that leads to violence through history has always, similar to all other philosophical doctrines, sought to justify its movement based on mainly social, economical and political reasoning.
“Religions” have been, in recent times, added to the catalogue that violent radicals use to legitimize their acts, and as mean of delivering their objections to what they consider “injustice.” This addition of “religious” reasoning to violent operations has made the subject much more sensitive, confusing and complicated.
