City probes publicly-funded mural critics say promotes holy war
by Terry Davidson
The City of Toronto is investigating a controversial publicly-funded mural which critics say promotes a holy war against non-Muslims.
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.
