Muslim groups disheartened by Harper's silence on anti-Muslim backlash
by Joan Bryden
Muslim groups are disappointed that Stephen Harper hasn't spoken out against a spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes since two separate attacks by jihadist sympathizers left two Canadian soldiers dead last week.
The prime minister has not publicly uttered one word of support for Canadian Muslims following the incidents, which Harper and the RCMP have labelled acts of terrorism.
He's remained silent despite an apparent backlash against Muslims, including the defacing of a mosque in Cold Lake, Alta., racist slurs against Muslim candidates in Toronto's municipal election and threats against the B.C. Muslim Association.
