Heads must roll over the hijab hoax

January 2018

I frequently remind people that in our legal (not justice) system, the truth really doesn’t matter; the only thing that matters is what you can prove in a court of law. The logic of this is it’s better for one guilty person to go free than 100 innocent people go to jail. If the Crown can’t prove their case, the person must be acquitted, no matter what we may think of that person (I’m looking at you Jian Ghomeshi).

It seems the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), Prime Minister Zoolander (Trudeau), Premier Two Moms (Wynne) and Mayor John Torry have taken this view to an extreme. They felt they had all the proof they needed to prove that Canadians are bigots and Islamophobes (a made-up concept designed by progressives to silence any critics of radical Islam, including from secular Muslims). They forgot one very important element: these “facts” need to be tested in a court of law FIRST before any pronouncement of guilt can be found.

I hate to sound like I have a tinfoil hat on, but what a coincidence that Trudeau’s M-103 is still winding its way through committee hearings. Was Trudeau hoping this was all the “proof” he needed to justify this draconian motion and push for it to become an actual law. Is there a more nefarious reason J.T. jumped on this so fast? What perfect timing that Liberal MP Iqra Khalid wants Parliament to declare 29 January as “Anti-Islamophobia Day.”

Is it a conspiracy theory when you have conspiracy fact? When the things that are provable are so outrageous, you really don’t need to make up anything.

All political leaders and the TDSB need to apologize to all Canadians for immediately throwing them under the bus and then for doubling down when it was revealed to be a hoax; sanctimonious lecturing us by implying that it doesn’t matter if this incident was fake because we’re probably all racist anyway.

This attitude only serves to further create a toxic environment for everyone, including (non-radical) Muslim Canadians, who simply want to live peaceful and productive lives in this wonderful country. There are many, many Muslim Canadians who came to Canada to escape oppression and persecution in their homelands and it’s disturbing that some politicians seem bent on stoking the flames of a race-war for their own political agenda. Admitted Nazi collaborator George Soros must be smiling right now.

There certainly are Canadians out there who are bigoted or racist, but we don’t need anyone staging fake hatred to serve their political agenda, like the CBC did in January 2017 when they openly hired an actor to sell fake racist memorabilia in Toronto, Alliston and Barrie, calling it a “social experiment.”.

I do want to thank the investigators with Toronto Police for their thorough investigation which revealed this hoax, but their action shouldn’t end with Khawlah Noman’s confession and apology, which I do appreciate. I don’t so much blame the girl herself (she was wrong, but she is young) as I do the political leaders who jumped on this faster that a fat kid on a Smarties, instantly making this into an international incident.

Toronto Police must issue a detailed report on how they determined this accusation was false and whether anyone put the girl up to making this accusation.  Were Khawlah Noman and her family complicit or simply unwitting pawns?

Is the truth that Khawlah Noman simply didn’t want to wear her hijab and got caught without it on, thus resorted to making up the attack?  Was she that scared of what her parents may do to her?  Clashes in culture can sometimes turn violent and fatal.

In 2011, Mohammad Shafia murdered his three daughters (Zainab, 19, Sahar, 17, Geeti, 13) and one of his two wives (Rona Amir Mohammad, 52, who was not the mother of the girls) because he felt they had dishonoured him by consorting with boys and wanting to wear western-style clothing like their friends.

I get tired of hearing accusations of racism that are completely false, which only serve to make people cynical and cast suspicion on actual incidents of racism or bigotry. This isn’t the first time a false accusation of “Islamophobia” in North America.

In December 2016, hijabi-wearing Yasmin Seweid reported to police in New York City that three Trump supporters attacked her and called her a terrorist, when the truth was she was attempting to cover up for a night out drinking with friends.

In November 2016, a Muslim student at the University of Michigan alleged that a white man told her to take off her hijab or he would set it on fire.

In January 2017, a 14 year-old Muslim girl in Vienna, Austria, claimed to have been attacked and thrown on a railway track.  Police determined the incident was fabricated.

In November 2017, five black cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado Springs reported having “go home n‑‑‑‑‑‑” written outside his room.  It turns out one of the “victims” was actually the one who wrote the racist comments.  The offender, who was not identified, was dismissed from the Academy.

In December 2016, a “white supremacist” started handing out anti-Islam flyers.  This “hate crime” fell apart when a home owner with a front door peep-hole security camera revealed that this “white supremacist” was actually black.

In December 2016, Gary Nathaniel Moore, a Muslim convert and member of the Savoy Masjid Mosque in Houston for eleven years, plead guilty to felony arson in a Harris County district court for setting fire to the mosque.

The next person who wants to make an accusation of “Islamophobia”, or any other hate crime, is pretty much going to have to provide audio and video recordings that can be tested to ensure they haven’t been creatively edited, have numerous witness statements signed and sworn-to before a Justice of the Peace and personal testimony from God, Allah, Boddah, the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Mr. Rogers.

As well, maybe some of our political leaders should re-read “The boy who cried wolf.” Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well for the boy.
