The following video is from a debate in Quebec’s Legislative Assembly in Quebec City about proposed religious accommodations for the province. Muslims in Quebec have been agitating for their interests, and the new proposals would favor them while pretending to be religiously neutral.
Notice that the two women in this video have diametrically opposite opinions about the same declared facts. One of them thinks Quebec will end up just like Afghanistan, and is appalled by the prospect, while the other thinks it would be just fine. All hail Diversity!

|00:00||We’ll allow chador and the hijab, of course — that also|
|00:04||does not cover the face — in the nurseries and|
|00:08||in public schools, where it is the most present. There will be possible accommodations|
|00:12||for the niqab and the burka. We will allow|
|00:16||the religious menus in the nurseries. Quebec will start|
|00:20||looking like Afghanistan! —Quebec is enriched by this diversity.|
|00:24||Madame Mailloux, I deeply believe it. —To hear the Minister|
|00:28||of Justice say that the veil is just an article of clothing, is something deeply shocking,
A chart about clothes!
|00:32||when the overwhelming majority of people know very well that the hijab|
|00:36||isn’t a simple piece of clothing. —A Quebec woman|
|00:40||out of free will chooses to wear the hijab, it’s her right.|
|00:44||—The hijab is a political banner. It is a symbol|
|00:48||of political Islam, which wants to impose a theocracy
Louise Mailloux: Citizens’ Group for Equality and Secularism
|00:52||and replace human rights with the Shariah. By forcing women|
|00:56||to wear it, Islamists wish to give to Islam as much visibility as possible|
|01:00||and get us used to its presence. That’s why it’s essential for them|
|01:04||to be able to introduce this veil in our public institutions. Moreover,|
|01:08||it looks like the inhabitants of Quebec are considered idiots. —It’s not the case; not really.|
|01:12||The government is subsidizing private schools.|
|01:16||Religious subsidies are being granted to Jewish schools, which don’t respect
Quebec will finance 100% private Jewish schools. Impunity for the Jewish schools!
|01:20||the educational system. A network of Hasidic family nurseries
Hasidic Jews will no longer manage their network of child care.
|01:24||benefited by 20 million from 2007 to 2013.
The liberal government of Jean Charest had allowed the establishment of a network
of 122 care centers in 2006, which obtained a grant of nearly 20 million for six years
|01:28||Religious organizations are exempt from income, property, municipal and school taxes.|
|01:32||No citizen in Quebec has right to such|
|01:36||privileges. With this law project in the child care services,|
|01:41||we’ll allow a nutritional diet based on religious grounds. This law project|
|01:45||allows the chador and the hijab. In this way children will continue to be exposed|
|01:49||to hijab in our schools and our nurseries. —I’m telling you, because I know them very well,|
|01:54||there are parents who chose for their children to have this contact|
|01:57||with diversity. An there is, for the parents, this need|
|02:05||to put their children in contact with diversity. From a very young age.|
|02:09||We are going to create, in a way, the ideal conditions for|
|02:13||this claiming of rights by the political-religious lobbies,|
|02:17||for those would-be theocrats who are the fringe, the most intolerant and the most|
|02:21||uncompromising of all religious groups, and which contribute at the same time|
|02:25||to increase pressure, especially on the Muslims. We know that there are,|
|02:29||here in Quebec, associations that claim to be inspired
Muslim Association of Canada: Allah is our goal, the prophet our leader, the Quran our constitution,
jihad our way, martyrdom our greatest hope
|02:33||by the thought of the Muslim Brotherhood, while others are communists.|
|02:37||Those people are active in their communities and towards their representatives|
|02:41||Their common, ultimate goal is imposing the Shariah and they use|
|02:45||different strategies to reach their aims. Entryism|
|02:49||by different demands for accommodations is one of their strategies, and|
|02:54||the hijab they are imposing on women and girls is their Trojan Horse.|
|02:58||This law project is simply going to throw open the doors of our public institutions for them.
