Canada: Toronto Probes Publicly-Funded Mosque Mural Promoting Holy War Against Non-Muslims
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” – Anonymous
In Canada, a Muslim cleric in Montreal promotes Sharia law amputations and death sentences for criminals and adulterers. The authorities do nothing. Another cleric in Brampton teaches that homosexuals should be stoned to death. The authorities do nothing. In Toronto, a Muslim school teaches children to hate Jews while an Islamic bookstore sells material that encourages wife-beatings and a “street-preaching” convert to Islam demands that all non-Muslim women wear burkas, head scarves and face veils, or risk being raped. And still, the authorities do nothing. Since governments all throughout the Western world have the backbone of a jellyfish, this mural will likely stay for “multicultural” purposes or because it didn’t break any law. Unfortunately, the real lesson that ends up being learned by the Muslim community is that political correctness and our lily-livered laws are allowing them to slowly, but surely, subdue civilized societies which, incidentally, is precisely what at least one Islamic bookstore in Scarborough teaches Muslims they must do: “destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it” because “Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.” And while Islam slowly chips away at the fabric of civilized society, the authorities, well, they’ll continue to do absolutely nothing …
Revelation 17:1b, 15, “… the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality … The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations … ” (NASB)
The city-funded piece of art on the wall of a building housing the Al-Tawakal mosque on Gerrard St. E., near Greenwood Ave., incorporates a verse from the Qur’an, which is written in Arabic and scrawled in modern, urban-style graffiti.
Critics charge it is a jihadist battle-cry against the West — an assertion disputed by the artist and at least two Toronto academics.
‘City staff are currently investigating the concerns raised about this mural,’ city spokesman Lynne Kyle said in an e-mail, adding ‘there was an extensive amount of community consultation that went into the design of the mural and there were no issues raised at that time.’
Taken from a chapter of the Muslim holy book, it is a verse that talks of Allah’s blessing and an Islamic victory of some kind being close at hand.
Salim Ahmad, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, has launched a petition calling on Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to remove the contentious image.
‘It’s an excerpt from the Qur’an, (and) it is used as a slogan when you’re fighting a jihad,’ he said.
In the petition, Ahmad claims the verse is used by both the Taliban and al-Qaida terrorist groups.
The Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Centre (RIWC), located just west of the mosque, applied for a grant and was awarded $17,000 in 2012 for mural projects under a city art program.
Laury Silvers, a part-time professor of Islamic studies at University of Toronto, said the mural’s message has been blown out of proportion.
The verse used in the mural, she added, is based on an ancient Muslim battle with those of polytheistic faith over land and property.” Read more.

What will it be next? Will Muslim cab drivers be permitted to refuse someone who looks like or sounds like they could be Jewish? Or someone with an ‘offensive tattoo‘? Or someone who wears a cross? Or a woman with alluring eyes who might cause them to sin? …” Read more.
