A Canadian Muslim group, The National Council of Canadian Muslims(NCCM) is suing Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for defamation, alleging his spokesman linked the group to terrorism in January.
It all begin in January after the NCCM asked the Canadian Prime Minister’s office to exclude Rabbi Daniel Korobkin in the official delegation that accompanied Harper to Israel. Rabbi Daniel Korobkin had hosted anti-Muslim bloggers Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer at an event in Toronto.
The prime minister’s communications director, Jason MacDonald, responded to the NCCM saying:
“We will not take seriously criticism from an organization with documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas.”
There is a new word by leftist for “success” it is “privilege.” Accomplishments do not come from hard work but from some magical process related to where your great-great-great……grandparent came from. This “privilege” is actually a consequence of hard work and sacrifice.
Jewish Americans income is approximately twice that of non-Jewish Americans. About 40 percent of high-school graduates attend college, however the rate among Jews is 85 percent. Is this a “Jewish privilege”? The success is the great emphasis placed on education by Jewish people.

The U.S. State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday for promoting a controversial Muslim scholar, Bin Bayyah, whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah is the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a controversial organization founded by Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi–a Muslim Brotherhood leader “who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S.,” according to Fox News.
Last Friday the CT Bureau tweeted a link to a press release on Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah’s site condemning the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls by the Boko Haram group.
Terrorism analyst Patrick Poole said that the State Department must more carefully choose the Muslim leaders it promotes.
