A Canadian blog has published a report on an upcoming conference to be held in the Canadian capital titled “The Rise of Islamophobia: A Rational Approach to Irrational Fears” and featuring individuals who are part of the Global Muslim Brotherhood such as Sheema Khan, founder and former president of the Canadian branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The Point de BASCULE report begins:
The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), a non-profit organization affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood that, according to Meili Faille (Bloc Québécois MP), maintains a permanent presence on Parliament Hill, will hold a conference entitled The Rise of Islamophobia: A Rational Approach to Irrational Fears 1 in Ottawa on November 7th. Pannelists linked to the Muslims Brotherhood will discuss their perception of the rise of islamophobia in the West at the request of the Youth division of the MAC. The organizers refer to “the Hijab ban in France; faith-based arbitration, faith-based schools; Hérouxville; the banning of minarets in Switzerland; the niqab debate; Tariq Ramadan’s visit; NYC ground zero mosque; banning of Imam Zijad Delic” as evidence that the West is becoming increasingly Islamophobic. The organization will examine the best way to interpret these events and to manage them constructively, taking for granted that the diagnosis of islamophobia is the correct one.
