Appeasing Canada's Islamists
by Kathy Shaidle
With a Canadian federal election rumored for next month, the nation's myriad ethnic voting blocks are preparing to wield their well-known power. Politicians of all parties pander shamelessly to these groups in the name of "multiculturalism," and Canada's self-appointed Muslim representatives know this all too well.
For now, they make up less than 3% of Canada's population, but since 9/11, Muslims have leveraged political correctness and imaginary "Islamophobia" to position themselves as a victim group worth courting – or else.
One Canadian political blog uncovered an article in a recent newsletter for the Canadian Islamic Congress (CIC), the same group suing author Mark Steyn for "flagrant Islamophobia" and which supported the abortive attempt to introduce Sharia law to Canada.
