Here we go with the fucking hijab again, part 2

More information about the Tae Kwon Do team who quit a competition because the girls were asked to take off their hijab. The team in question is affiliated with the Montréal Muslim Community Center. It is not a civil, but a religious organisation, whose aim is to promote Islam. Shi'ite conservative Islam to be precise. Not extremists, but not very tolerant either (On their website they explain that all Sunnis are ignorant and racist. Look who's talking!).

So without falling into conspiracy theories, it's not impossible the Montréal Muslim Community Center would have declared forfeit and used the kids to create a controversy. There's something very fishy here.

Certainly. Some of those fundie Muslims (and Christians too, only they usually know better than to say so outright) despise our liberal and secular societies. But they love using our free press to get their grievances out in public, and to use our laws for their own purposes.
"Mullah Krekar" is for me an obvious example; he's even been denied asylum here, but as long as he risk being tortured and executed if he returns to Iraq, the law very firmly says he can't be deported. This is a man who says Sharia-laws would be a good thing for my country...
