Introducing the Islamic Party of Ontario

In case you have not heard of the Islamic Party of Ontario, its name was officially reserved under Elections Ontario rules in October 2018, with more steps required before it becomes a formal party.

From their platform:
 

Principles & Policies

Islamic Party of Ontario is founded on and will be guided in its policy formation by the following principles:
-Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms starts with, “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” The Islamic Party of Ontario believes in “Supremacy of God” and understands that it is our constitutional requirement to make all the rule of laws of Provinces and Federal in obedience and according to the will of God.
– Believing in God’s Supremacy means believing in His Oneness, His Authority, and His Obedience in all spheres of life.
-God is Himself the GUIDE to set fundamental principles of the outlook of life and practices in private to public life –political, social, education, economy, health, environment, and the justice system. In Quranic term, it is known as DEEN.
-God sent Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them), 124,000 messengers and prophets in different eras, nations, and tribes with one DEEN (system of life); that is “Islam”.
-The word Islam means “surrender” and “peace”. That means Islam requires surrender to God to attain peace. This is the DEEN taught by all the messengers and prophets from God and to all the nations.
-The DEEN of Noah (Nooh), Abraham (Ibrahim), Isaak (Ishaq), Ishmael (Ismail), Jacob (Yaqub), Jonah (Yunus), Moses (Musa), Jesus (Eisa), and Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) are the same, and that is Islam. These messengers are all brothers and sent from the same God.
-Islam is the only and oldest DEEN of GOD brought and started by Adam (p.b.u.h.), the first man and the first messenger of God, created by God without mother and father. It is the same DEEN brought by Jesus (p.b.u.h.) before Muhammadﷺ who born without father. It is a misconception that Islam is a “religion” created by Muhammad ﷺ. Islam is the only way to attain peace and justice and provides laws without any prejudice.
-We understand and believe that Islam is the native DEEN of Ontario and Canada.

 
The native religious system of Ontario and Canada?

News to me!

Not believers in relativism, are they…

Nope; they are supremacists for their faith, their way of life.

Understandable; people of any non-syncretist creed, if they truly hold to it, are likewise partisans of their particular faith as the only true one, superior to all the others in that it is true and the others are false.

Of course, not all faiths require their believers to establish global theocracies.

But that one certainly does.

In the long run, then, can any honest observer conclude anything other than that their worldview is incompatible with liberal democracy?

-Islamic Party of Ontario sets its policy of governance, economy, social justice, human dignity, healthcare, family life, environment, and justice, etc. according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

 
Straight from their own platform…
 
Post-Script: Now, it is true we Christians may certainly like some elements of their platform:
 

-Family System has to be restored to protect the generations to sustain human beings on earth until its natural ends.
-Marriage is a sacred union between a man and woman. The birth of babies of next generation and survival of human species depends on this institution. Majority of Ontarians and Canadians living as single moms and dads are affecting the sound healthy growth of children. If the situation continues, this society will rely hundred percent on immigrants and from the nations where the traditional family system is protected. The Canadian family system and marriage institution must be restored for the survival of coming generations.
-The sexual relationship is only between men and women. This relationship should be protected with a marriage contract by clearly defining rights and responsibilities of both man and woman. They must have to take responsibility for family care and children nourishment. The government should be supportive of this responsible family. They should be given privilege and affordable housing for healthy living and nourishment.
-Allah has created two genders: men and women. Any physical defect in any organ of a person doesn’t change one’s gender identification and sexual orientation. All the communities of all the faiths believe in it; modern science proves it. The concept of “gender identity” or “seven-colour gender” is a false concept.
-The relationship established under a marriage contract is a sacred union between a man and a woman. God made Adam and Eve –not Adam and Steve.
-No artificial and irresponsible approach to stop the birth of children at any stage should be allowed. -We believe in a complete ban on abortion except in a situation when a mother’s life is in danger.
Measures should be taken to stop suicide, including doctor-assisted suicide of patients. All life is precious and trust of God. No one has the right to take his own or another’s life due to depression or disease. It is only God who gives life and can take back the life whenever He wants.
-Obscenity, vulgarity, nudity, and perversion must be checked.

 
Nevertheless, they mean to impose their Weltanschauung, even as they claim to honour religious freedom.

I for one would prefer that we Canadians get to decide what we want our country to be, and not let The Stranger decide for us.
 

The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
They are used to the lies I tell;
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy or sell.

[…]

The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.

This was my father’s belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf–
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.

 
So be it.

 

‘Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ Scene Deemed Racist by Some Viewers

This is why we can’t have nice things, like civilization

“Watching Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving is hard knowing they put my n— Franklin at the end of the table by himself,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as I always do and I’m tight [as f—] every year because they give Franklin a freaking folding pool chair to sit on while everyone else has a comfy chair,'” another user commented.

One particular scene did not sit well with viewers as the Peanuts cast united for the holiday feast when Franklin, the only African American member of the cast sits on his own on one side of the table.

The confusing seating arrangement for the dinner left many viewers concerned as to what message the vintage television special showed its younger audiences.

“How come Franklin, Charlie Brown’s only black friend, sits alone on the other side of the table? And in a lawn chair,” another user commented.

Not ‘woke’ enough, even though included, and with a comfy lawnchair rather than an uncomfortable wooden one; a guest of honour, it would seem to me, but treated different so no good, apparently. In hindsight, Schulz should never have bothered to write Franklin; let this be a lesson to future cartoonists…

 

The Ugliness of Male Submission

The Ugliness of Male Submission

Hear, hear!

Men should never kneel / bow before a woman who isn’t their literal Queen (e.g. Elizabeth II if you are British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealander, etc.). Including one they wish to marry (establishes improper frame, bad precedent; if she’s supposed to submit to your will why would you ever kneel before her, even once?).

 

Neo-suffragettes

 

Refugees stop in the first country that admits them after exiting their own; economic migrants don’t

 

Another symptom of decline: increasing lack of product-line knowledge of foreign-born store clerks

I use convenience stores a fair bit.

One thing I’ve noticed a lot recently is a complete lack of knowledge on the part of subcontinental convenience store clerks on their product line.

Say you regularly buy a certain food or beverage product, then one day you notice there isn’t any more of it, and you go to ask the clerk, “Did you stop carrying X, or are you just out of it at the moment?”

Increasingly, you’ll get a blank look, and a ‘Uh…’

Recently, I laid into one: “You have no idea what I’m talking about, do you?”

“Sorry, boss!” (In the homeland, back during the Rаj, they’d have said ‘Sаһіb’; now they say ‘Boss’. Progress, I suppose…)

Yes, I get that head offices make business decisions that franchise owners don’t always get informed about. But they should make it their business to care and learn what’s happening. Their livelihoods, after all…

I’m not the only one who’s noticed increasing incompetence on their parts. One day, while in such a store, I watched a fellow Canadian rant at them over their misleading labelling about their brewed coffee products and their general incompetence at simply making a decent pot of coffee. I hoped he would simply take his business to a nearby Timmy’s instead, where he’ll get what he came for and the incompetents won’t get his money for substandard product and service…

And so, the decline and fall of our civilization continues…
