At Vigil Held in Memory of Qasem Soleimani Outside U.S. Consulate in Toronto, Crowd Chants ‘America is Satan, ‘ Islamic Scholars Say: Trump, Pompeo Will be Tried in an Islamic Court

On January 2, 2022, a vigil was held outside the U.S. Consulate in Toronto in memory of IRGC Qods Force Commander Qasem Soleimani. The vigil marked two years since the U.S. assassination of Soleimani. Canadian Shi’ite Sheikh Shafiq Huda, the Director of the Islamic Humanitarian Service in Kitchener, Ontario, said in English that leaders in the West are trying to “rule the Islamic nation” from the White House, and that they are too cowardly to come to the battlefield. He said that both Biden and Trump will end up in the dustbin and led the audience in a chant: “Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! America is the Great Satan!”

Later, Canadian Islamic Scholar Sauber Mojtahedi said in Farsi that Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis, an Iraqi militia leader who was killed in the same air strike as Soleimani, had been the greatest soldiers of the Hidden Imam, and he said that the day will come when former President Donald Trump and former State Secretary Mike Pompeo will be tried in an Islamic court, just like Imam Khomeini had wanted to try the Shah in an Islamic court. Mojtahedi compared Trump to Saddam Hussein and Anwar Sadat, and he asked for Allah to curse him and Pompeo. For more information about Sheikh Shafiq Huda, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 8586 and 6614. The address was posted on the DARS TV YouTube channel.

“Crimes in the Name of Religion”: The Persecution of Christians, November 2021

The following are among the abuses Muslims inflicted on Christians throughout the month of November 2021:

The Muslim Slaughter of Christians

Uganda: Muslims murdered a Christian leader for refusing to remove his church from a Muslim-majority region. Pastor Stephen Lugwire, 58, was working on his farm with one of his daughters when three men dressed in Islamic attire and waving long knives shouted at them. One yelled that Pastor Stephen was a “kafir” (infidel) who had harmed the religion of Allah. Another, coming closer, said, “We have told you to remove the church which is near our mosque, but you have not heeded our message. Today you will face the wrath of Allah.” According to the daughter, “There and then one of the assailants hit my dad with a big stick on the head, and he fell down.” Before fleeing in terror, she saw another of the Muslims slashing her father with a knife. She ran and informed her family, who reported it to the police; Lugwire’s body was later found thoroughly slashed, with deep cuts to his throat and chest. Police arrested a wealthy Muslim woman, Shamimu, after it was learned that the murderers were hiding in her home. Apparently unrepentant, the Muslim woman told police:

“The servants of Allah entered my house in order to remove the clothes which they were wearing, because they were soaked in blood, and said that they had killed an infidel, hence Allah will reward them as they were following the footsteps of their prophet. Furthermore, the pastor didn’t honor Allah by refusing to demolish the church which was close to the mosque, along with his activities of winning their members to Christianity.”

Fox, who plays Hunter Biden in an upcoming film “My Son Hunter,” has been an outspoken advocate for individual rights in the face of continuing encroachments on personal freedom. It began before COVID-19, but intensified with the emergence of the pandemic. Fox has paid a high price for speaking up, has lost work because of it, and if anything that’s made him more determined to not be cowed by either the dogmatic entertainment infrastructure or the political ones.
