Is Canada going Soft(er) on Terrorism?

Or is Islam just the flavour of the month for special interests?

In the extremely stupid category, apparently Canada’s “hate crime” laws don't apply to Muslims who promote terrorism against Israelis.

According to Canuk standards, saying that Israelis are ‘legitimate targets’ is not a hate crime.

Police have decided not to charge a controversial Muslim leader under Canada’s hate-crime laws for suggesting on a television talk show last fall that all adult Israelis are “legitimate targets” for Palestinian terrorists.

Investigators with Halton Region police said that while the comments by Dr. Mohamed Elmasry “were described by many as (a) hate crime,” they did not meet the legal definition.

“Although the comments would be considered distasteful to many, in this context they do not constitute a criminal offence,” police said in a news release. “The comments were made during a free-flowing discussion between subject-matter experts who were encouraged to express their opinions openly on a topic of significant public interest.”

The FISK notes it wasn't that long ago just looking cross-eyed at a Jewish person would have been enough to cause all hell to break loose. Now it seems they are fair game like most everyone else, at least in Canada that is.

My how times have changed. Could this be another example of Canadian ambiguity and willingness to go soft on terrorism to avoid becoming a target itself. Proving that it doesn't take much to intimidate a country with little or no military to speak of. Oy!

Canada also declared the Bible "hate speech". They're politically correcting themselves right into the Muslim cesspool.

Hate crime laws are just a ruse for liberals to silence their enemies and claim immunity for themselves!
