The Liberals and the NDP speak their minds...

We've just had 17 people arrested on suspicions of terrorism and here is what the NDP and hte Liberals have to say:
The Liberal and New Democratic public safety critics agreed with Day on the importance of engaging the Islamic community.

"This should be a big issue for us," Liberal Public Safety Critic Derek Lee told Question Period. "Ninety-nine per cent of the broader Islamic community is out there, very sensitive about this and waiting to hear some reassurance that they are Canadians just like everybody else.

"A few bad apples, should there be some...shouldn't be allowed to taint the whole community," Lee said. "There are as concerned about our public safety as anybody else."

Joe Comartin, the New Democratic Public Safety Critic agreed. He said Canadians need to react with calm and sensitivity to the recent arrests, and must protect the Islamic community from retaliation.

"They're the major victims when something like this happens because of what seems to be the inevitable backlash," Comartin told Question Period. "Canada has been good about the limited nature of that backlash, but it certainly is there. There's the bigotry and the racism that comes to the surface at these points."

"The Muslim community here has every right to expect Canadians will respond with moderation, apply our values, our judicial and justice system to the facts that are in effect here, (and ensure) we don't over react and we don't panic."
No real concern about what is going on the mosques of Canada. Of course, Canadians won't over-react....there was never much of a reaction after 9/11.

I wonder if these lefties would be worried about the Islamic community if the terrorists succeeded. The lefties might also be running for their lives.

The annoying hypocrisy by Islamic org's is that after the 9/11 slaughter by 19 Muslims it was CAIR-usa that blamed Immigration and national security
Department for allowing the men to stay in America, plus CAIR posted a comment that the hijackers weren't True Muslims.

Right now we have the usual denial by Imams and islamic org.'s screaming racism and Islamophobia , but just wait until the evidence convicts the 17 Muslims for terrorism plots, amazingly the 17 will be deemed as not being True muslims.

So typical. They're more worried about "racism" than they are about how many other terrorist cells are out there.

Just another example of self-congratulation posing as serious commentary here in Canada.
