Here is a nice article from Toronto Sun, illustrating how Muslims are undermining our most basic religious freedoms-with some comments of my own in brackets):
Let’s not turn our schools into mosques. By Farzana Hassan, Toronto Sun

Mississauga, now Canada’s sixth-largest city, is home to one of the largest concentrations of Muslim students in Canada.
This is why in seventeen out of Mississauga’s nineteen high schools, Muslim students associations are demanding autonomy on holding congregational prayers on Friday and on choosing who delivers the sermons.
The Peel Board of Education has recently ruled that only six approved sermons could be delivered during Friday prayers, ones that are consistent with the board’s values of honesty, cooperation and inclusion. But the students now wish to regain control.
(How simple Cdn life was when all we had to worry about was the Catholic/Protestant divide-with Jews as a fringe group. And we handled that pretty well-we had a TOTALLY secular public school system-with a separate Catholic system thanks to French Catholics landing here before Protestants and Jews! Now we have Muslims trying to turn things upside down!)
Currently these efforts in Mississauga are being partially led by Shahmir Durrani, who in fact is not in high school but reportedly attends the University of Toronto at Mississauga. They insist on the sermon being drafted by the students.
(One has to ask what Durrani is studying in U of t and if he has political aspirations? I suggest that Durrani is a classic illustration of why all sensible democracies do NOT ALLOW foreign born persons to hold positions of power! Too bad Our brainless Boy and his LIE-beral horde plan to BUY immigrant votes by scorning the standard democratic restriction on foreigners in govt!)
One of the imams who is on the Peel Board’s Faith Leaders Network, Omar Subedar, has even previously condoned wife battery, even though he now claims to advocate equality for Muslim women.
(Oh right-this is standard Muslim policy-DENY anything the main population suddenly takes notice of and does not like. Just pretend it never happened and the stupid Infidels will go back to sleep and allow the Umma to move ahead!)
School prayers began cropping up about ten years ago, ironically around the same time when former premier Dalton McGuinty banned sharia courts from Ontario. The Toronto Sun first reported on prayer services happening at Valley Park Middle School in east Toronto in 2011, but the practice has proliferated since then.
(One has to ask: “if no other religion is allowed to take over our public school system then WHY should we allow a bunch of arrogant Johnny come lately types to mess with our system? The system that has kept the religious peace for 150 years here”? We don’t allow the school system to halt whenever one of the many Jewish holidays comes by, why then should Muslims get special treatment? Especially when Muslims apparently also want the right to make RADICAL sermons denouncing Cdn morals and values? Why else would they want to do away with school board oversight of their sermons? No oversight MEANS NO CENSORSHIP EITHER!)
Now the Peel Board will have to decide by December 12 whether to permanently change these rules so the students have greater control of the content of the sermons and the choice of imams.
This raises many concerns. School boards must treat all religions equally. However, these very strident Islamist demands for communal religious practice create inequality, as other faiths do not insist on such public displays of religiosity. By default, a political and orthodox form of Islamism is taking root within our schools.
(Strong religious belief is one thing-strong politically ACTIVE religious belief is quite another! We would not accept the presence of Catholic Jesuit Inquisitors with their hatred of Protestants and Jews in Canada so Why are the radicals of Islam more acceptable? How badly do LIE-berals NEED to BUY immigrant and Muslim votes?)
Some of the activists pursuing this cause show no loyalty to Canada, a nation they say practices systematic Islamophobia. At a recent Mississauga school board meeting on the topic, an online video shows a number of these attendees even refused to stand for O Canada.
(The Muslim definition of Islamophobia is-in itself-GROSSLY bigoted-they define an Islamophobe as anybody who disagrees with them!)
A typical congregational prayer would have women at the back, and menstruating women would be excluded outright. This would violate board gender policies, not to mention Canadian values.
MSAs may tout this as a broad religious rights issue, but congregational prayer is best observed at the mosque. No religion should be allowed to mobilize itself in such a political way on school property. Schools should be free of the kind of religious preferences that by default are happening in Mississauga and potentially in other parts of Canada.
No one is stopping Muslims from praying at their mosques, and protocol allows great flexibility of time and venue in observing prayers. It is not as if these students will be barred from discharging their religious obligations if they are not allowed to pray together on Friday. Their insistence on organizing themselves in this fashion on school property shows the political nature of this issue.
(It is no coincidence that this matter of prayer time at school first came to be raised right after LIE-beral McGinty-wisely for once- refused to implement Sharia Law in Ontari-owe! Muslim political radicals have NO PLACE in our school system. And frankly there is ever increasing reason to conclude that Muslim values are completely incompatible with those of Canada and thus Muslims are not suited to Cdn citizenship!)
Canada justifiably proscribes school-sponsored prayer for reasons of freedom of conscience. Although the MSA’s prayer services would not qualify as school-sponsored, they would certainly be seen as sanctioned by the boards. Many Muslim students unwilling to participate in Friday prayers or sermons may indeed feel pressured to do so, which again violates the board’s policy of ensuring freedom of conscience.
(This issue of pressure applied by Imams to waverers is a serious one that should worry us greatly as mild and moderate Muslims around the world are being shouted down and side lined by the radicals. Allowing bullies to force moderates to fall into the party line like a pack of latter day Nazis is NEVER good politics nor good govt! Why allow it here?)
It is this policy which overrides all other considerations, and it is what the Peel Board must bear in mind when making its decision about MSA prayer demands.
(And now, I wish all people of good will a Merry Christmas-while we Cdns are still permitted to utter such sentiments!)
