    I am so sorry this is happening you and your families. I am very disturbed and saddened that your daughter is so afraid. No one should have to live with this fear especially children.

  2. I agree with this man. I dont hate muslim people. I dont agree with any ideology like islam or christianity. Any ideology that requires faith is made for fools. Faith is the death of reason. “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”… so the important part is to use reason the guide your actions, not dogma. Thats the most common sense teaching you could learn.

    • And anyway its okay to criticise ideas but leave the people alone. It is a big problem with hate being directed at muslims. I like dialogue not anything more.

    Atheist here, I view all religions the same. What I love most about this country is that we have voices from all walks of life. I wish every Canadian felt that way, but just like you mentioned, there are always folks who make us look bad.

    I visited the mosque being built in Sherwood Park. Everyone I met was so kind and welcoming. It was wonderful to tour their new building and meet the people there. They are friends and neighbors and I’m happy to know them.

  7. Bullies like to take a group and decide they are evil. The whole group is evil. Easier for the bullies this way. The bullies decide to protect themselves by murdering this evil group. Somehow bullies murdering what they perceive as evil, doesn’t count in their minds.
    Those of us who don’t feel this way need to continue to speak out against these people. They are wrong. You and your family should not be suffering for their ignorance and prejudice.

  8. I am am atheist as well. Media is responsible for a lot of the hatred against Muslims. Could you even imagine what would have been on Facebook if social media existed when the Christians were committing their atrocities. I don’t care what religion you belong to, I think a big part of the world’s problems would be solved if there were no religions. The biggest part of religion is faith, and if you keep your faith to your god in the face of the adversity you face…..good for you.

  9. “May Allah swt wipe them off this Earth and punish them for the rest of eternity!”

  10. May I say that I love you for this testimony. Shout out has a brave heart to step in front of hate. I believe in what you write as the truth since I have so many Muslim friends who I love dearly. I admire them all for overcoming there own personal barriers and raising their children with REPECT and all that is good. I have watched their children grow from babies that I once held in my home to being fine young adults and I must say that right now I miss them and you have made me remember them all. Thank You we have the same truth may God bless us all…people steal the fairness from this world it is not God. To him we are and will always be the same. In God we pray Thank You

    I love this post. I love my Muslim brothers and sisters, neighbours, coworkers and friends. Please know in your heart that there are less ignorant and afraid people than there will ever be people who love and respect your people for the kindness and light you as a community bring wherever you go.

    I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ this & so very proud of you for speaking up & educating the blind people… I live across from a mosque & surrounded by Muslim families & I have never had fear against any of them…. The store I go to is owned by Muslim & they treat me & my kids with much kindness as I do towards them as well…. I don’t believe in treating others wrong because of a religion; it’s just not right & it’s sad to me that the good of you Muslim have to fight to prove that you’re good people.

    Just finished having a similar conversation with a friend of mine over the last 2 hrs. One thing for sure.. ISIL is nothing but a gang of thugs who use fear to divide and conquer.

    The best way to conquer any group, is to instill fear, this creates a divide and now that group is weak and easy target for the pickings…. ISIL has mastered this and we (society) have allowed it. 30 yrs ago, someone who publicly spouted hate would of been hung drawn and quartered (Jim Keegstra ring a bell?), but now with social media… it’s everywhere. We have become divided, fear is rampant… unless we change our outlook and start standing together… we have lost.

    People need to become more learned about everyone. It’s so stupid that you have to live in fear. I just learned about a friend of mine who was accosted for being “Arab” and she is of East Asian descent from Trinidad/Tobago. Please people stop being so naive and careless around those of Muslim faith.

  16. What I hate- is that you felt that you needed to
    Put this out there. I am sorry that people are ignorant and feed off the hate propaganda, and innocent people like you and your family are going through this. I hate that anyone should feel afraid because the acts of cowards.
    But I will move in love and if need be I will stand by your side if anyone would should throw their hatred at you.

    I am appalled at the way Muslims are being treated in my country. Thank you for your precise and thoughtful post. Throughout history, any race that can be identified easily as non-white or different has been vilified and what I am about to say I do not in any way mean to lessen your suffering. Aboriginals, blacks, Jews, Vietnamese ‘boat people’, Packies (anyone with brown skin in the past), DP’s (displaced persons), transvestites, gays just to name a few have been singled out in my lifetime. I stand up for a person, not a race or basic belief and it really really bothers me how humans treat each other. Canada is supposed to stand for multiculturism. For the most part it is, but with each passing year I am seeing more and more hate and it bothers me.

  18. Why an anonymous post?

    There should be uniequivocal ‘global’ open verbal condemnation for these attacks on the West, especially from Muslims, to demonstrate plainly this unity and fight against hate, you mention in your post.

    [0]
    • Why should every Muslim apologize for the acts of extremists acting under the false label of Islam when they have nothing to do with it? I do not expect my Christian friends to apologize for extremists executing gays in Christian countries or bombing abortion clinics.

      [0]
    • Where did I say ‘apololgize’ for anything? Re-read my post.

      These attacks are disgusting and need to be publicly and clearly denouned. If a unified global population vocally condemed these atrocities, that would put even more pressure on the attackers.
      Executing gay people is not necessarily being done by ‘Christian’ motives. Its being done by dictators for political control. These need to be condemned as well.

  21. I am a Christian and I treat each person according to who they are. Lots of bad people of every nationality. Sad that this is happening and that your children have to worry about these things in Canada.

    Sobriety makes a huge difference because that proves there are sober people who practice what they preach or believe in. Addictions are evil. They ruin and destroy everything. Addictions don’t care about cultures or religions. It takes away love and humanity. Drugs brainwash humans easier than anything. Blaming religion is for the ones who don’t want to live sober or don’t know how.

  25. Reform your political ideology. Accept that Israel has always belonged to the Jewish people for millenia before Islam started.

  26. Well. When your worshipping a man who was a pedophile. The abuse and rape of women and children. The burning of Christian churches and their hanging. And the throwing gays off of buildings heck yes people are going to be distant and hateful. Of course. If they weren’t, then i would be questioning our morals and values. Do you really expect people to turn a blind eye?. To act like it’s all hunkey Dorey?.

  27. Blame the media and our govts for all of the misinformation being spread. He who controls the media controls the public thought. I feel bad that a few terrorists are making a whole religion look bad but freedom of speech is super important and is a huge privilege in this country and this is what we need to fight for. We should have the right to criticize any religion or have opinions without fear of being a “criminal”. On a final note, I am sorry you are going through this, you should be able to practice your religion without fear. People need to hold the media and govt accountable for their reckless endangerment of minorities and anyone who disagrees with the mainstream brainwashing. This is a large topic, too much for facebook.

  28. Agreed. Unfortunately, Islam has gotten the brunt of the terrorism definition.
    Truth is that it’s not new and others have done it. The circle continues.
    As someone once told me, “there aren’t enough books written about RESPECT.”
    Education, as OP encourages, is a must.
    People don’t even look each other in the eye, let alone smile, anymore.

  29. Thank you for this and I agree with you. Enough is enough is right! I am seeing the same fear and hate and I am ashamed of my fellow Canadians. I for one am glad to have Muslims in my country and appreciate the help you have offered fellow Canadians in need. You should be free to wear what you wish and I support that. I wish you all the best as well. Happy Canada Day!

  30. White supremacists and bigots have been showing up at the mosque and Islamaic Academy in my neighborhood lately…most recent at the Academy during an Eid children’s carnival! It is disgusting. I have lived in this neighborhood for over a decade and love my Muslim neighbors.

  32. We see what Muslims are doing in counties like Sweden…. Germany …and the UK …..an now starting in the US and CANADA

    I don’t think that anyone wants that shit happening here

    Muslims make alot of “demands” and expect us to adhere to your beliefs …if you want to live under all those Islamic rules then maybe you should stay in a Muslim country

    Why come here an complain about our way of life…our food and our celebration … wouldn’t it be better to stay in your own country and enjoy what Allah has in store for you

    I’m a atheist and don’t agree with ANY religion and don’t feel I should have to adhere to Islam…christain ….or Jewish beliefs…. respect their beliefs …yes….live by them…not a chance .

    As a atheist….I believe that religion is the root of all evil weather it be Muslim… christain…or Jewish…the only religion that doesn’t make any demands an live peacefully in any country they are in is budist they live by their rules and rules of the country they live in
