Go Figure--Justin Trudeau's Not Nearly Obsequious Enough for Some Muslims

Despite playing Islamic dress up at a number of Canadian mosques, Justin Trudeau isn't doing nearly enough to please some Muslims. This one, for instance:
A year has gone since Trudeau first came into office, offering a welcome message of change throughout his campaign. Yet, although Trudeau has had some accomplishments in office so far, Muslim Canadians must remain skeptical of his government and must be prepared to hold him accountable on issues that directly or indirectly impact our community. If we make the mistake of idolizing him, we risk granting him the freedom to disregard our interests. And many of his actions do indeed deserve to be critiqued.
On the question of Islamophobia, for example, many Muslims like me were initially encouraged when Trudeau publicly condemned hate crimes against Muslim-Canadians. Following the surge in incidents of racial abuse towards Muslims after the Paris attacks in late 2015, Trudeau stated, "These recent acts of intolerance have no place in our country and run absolutely contrary to Canadian values of pluralism and respect."  
However, the Trudeau government has been slow to take meaningful actions that live up to our PM's words. It is true that Liberal MP Frank Baylis sponsored a Parliamentary petition against Islamophobia, which garnered almost 70,000 signatures -- more than any other Canadian petition on this issue. However, it was NDP leader Thomas Mulcair who introduced the motion in Parliament on October 6. Given that it was a Liberal MP -- Baylis -- who sponsored the petition, it is quite puzzling and rather disappointing that it was not Trudeau who introduced the motion at the House of Commons.  
"Progress" on Islamophobia by Trudeau at the federal level has been far outpaced by measures, albeit mostly symbolic, taken by provincial parties. For instance, an NDP private members's bill was recently unanimously passed by the Ontario legislature, making October Islamic Heritage Month in that province. Furthermore, a resolution condemning all forms of Islamophobia was initiated by the Liberal party in Ontario and was later passed successfully just this past summer.  
Yet, the Liberal party has failed to raise a similar motion at the federal level. Trudeau's federal Liberal party has thus proven to be slow to act on issues of Islamophobia. As Muslim Canadians, what we need from Trudeau is substantive action, not just encouraging words.
"Substantive"? Or "submissive"?

Obama Had Binders Full of Muslims

He was just doin' his part to give some members of his favorite victim group a leg up.

Ironically enough.

Rich Investors Bring a Little Bit of Kuwait to Bosnia

Sounds "idyllic":
Angry locals are protesting about a Bosnian town built by Middle Eastern investors which has Arabic as its 'official' language - and where locals can only enter if they work as servants.

The 160 homes have been constructed in a luxury enclave near Tarcin, five miles west of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

But furious locals say that their only way of accessing the area is through being hired as servants or cleaners - and claim most of the homes contain the wives of wealthy businessmen.

The houses - marketed only in Kuwait - are being sold for 150,000 euros (£133,000).

Adverts for the estate call Bosnia a Muslim country 'gifted with beautiful nature by Allah.'...
Money talks (even if the locals balk).

Dhimmi Danes Submit to Sharia Rules Re Child Brides

Riding the Toronto subway the other day, I saw an ad for Plan International's anti-child marriage campaign that featured this rude/in-your-face message:

Noodling around on the 'Net just now, I discovered that the campaign would likely fall flat in Denmark where, two months ago, authorities gave thumbs up to reuniting "refugee" child brides with their much older hubbies (the splashes of yellow are mine):
Denmark’s decision to separate married couples in refugee centres if one party is below the age of 18 has been reversed after the government concluded it was in violation of international conventions. 

Metroxpress reported on Wednesday that the Danish Immigration Service will now reunite several married couples who have been living separately since February.  
“In some of these cases it has been it has been assessed that it would not be compatible with Denmark’s international obligations to maintain the separate living quarters, thus these couple have been offered to be housed together,” DIS wrote in an official response to a parliamentary enquiry.  
Specifically, the agency concluded that the separate living quarters would violate the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child and Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees the right to one's "private and family life”. 
Josephine Fock, an MP for The Alternative who raised the issue with DIS, cheered the reversal.  
“It is completely outrageous. We are talking about people who have fled to Denmark who are being split from each other. Some of them have children together and investigating individual [asylum] cases takes an unbelievably long time,” Fock told Metroxpress.  
In January, the Integration Ministry obtained an overview of the Danish asylum system that revealed that there are currently 27 minors who have spouses or partners. According to an earlier report in Metroxpress, there are two married 14-year-old girls at Danish asylum centres. One is married to a 28-year-old man, while the other is pregnant and has a 24-year-old husband....
So considerate of the Danes to pay obeisance to sharia law "international conventions" don't you think?

Mordantly Funny News Story Du Jour: France Scraps Special Jihadi Deradicalizaiton Prison Wings (Because They Were Helping and Not Hindering the Jihad)

C'est vrai--est tres amusement (my bolds):
France's de-radicalization prison wings were rolled out in January this year, and saw prisoners who were convicted of terrorism housed in their own cells, where they were unable to communicate with anyone who they could potentially influence. 
The inmates had to undergo a kind of de-radicalization course with psychologists and repentant former jihadists in the trial.  
However while the plan may sound sensible, many had criticised it for helping jihadist networks grow. 
In July a critical report suggested this isolated prison wings option was not the best solution. 
The report by France’s chief prison inspector Adeline Hazan said France’s justice system was facing a phenomenon “which it had no measure of the nature or extent of”. 
Her report stressed that grouping Islamist extremist prisoners together continues to worry counter-terrorist judges because of the harmful impacts which include “allowing solidarity to build between prisoners, networks to be reconstructed and allow the more influential inmates to put pressure on the most vulnerable.”

Obama's Triumphant Return to Berlin

Whatever he says on this occasion, there's no way he's going to top his first set of Berlin remarks. Here's how Mark Steyn captured the oleaginous narcissism in his book After America:
...Obama worships at his own personal altar at the First Church of Himself. Unlike [Bill] Clinton, he can't feel your pain, but his very presence is your gain--or as he put it in his video address to the German people on the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall: "Few would have foreseen on that day that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent." 
Tear down the they can get a better look at me!!! ...
