Canada’s parliamentarians led by NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal MP Frank Baylis recently passed a motion “condemning all forms of Islamophobia”.
Initially, some Conservative MPs declined to give unanimous consent, but under threat of being labelled “racist” and “Islamophobic”, unanimity was eventually achieved.
Had the motion also denounced the Islamist doctrine of armed jihad and Islamic sharia as a source of public law, it would have met the test of good faith.
Unfortunately, it did not and thus the motion made a mockery of the facts on the ground.
