The Toronto Star (free registration) reports a sad incident from the marching morons.
|What began as an attempt to heal the wounds of Canada’s Muslims and Jews has ended by inflaming them.|
|At an evening of dialogue for Muslim-Jewish understanding, remarks by Israel’s consul general have prompted the Muslim Canadian Congress to call for an apology, and it has asked Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew to investigate the statements and seek an explanation.|
Consul General Ya’acov Brosh merely stated the obvious, that “the majority of terrorists today were Muslims, although the majority of Muslims are not themselves terrorists.” However, in doing so, he brought down the wrath of the correct thinkers upon his head.
|Muslims who attended the speech said they were hurt and shocked by his words.|
|“I have been president of Muslims Against Terrorism, and I found his implication very hurtful,” said Farzana Hassan-Shahid, an inter-faith activist. “It was that all Muslims are lumped together. We think he should apologize for that.”|
So… the Muslim Canadian Congress is demanding an apology. It wants the Foreign Affairs Minister “to investigate the statements and seek an explanation.”
These people need IQ tests. Immediately. Followed by a mandatory Logic 101 course.
Oy vey. What the situation needs is now is several hundred sympathy cards to the Israeli consul general. Whatever they pay him, it can’t be enough.
Hat tip: The Last Amazon: as long as groups like the Muslim Canadian Congress demand apologies and attempt to persecute others for stating the painful facts on the ground, I consciously disconnect from the desire to even attempt a dialogue with the deluded.
