On Sunday, June 2, 2013, various Canadian Muslim groups are holding an event to celebrate the life and teachings of Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini.
JDL Canada will also be present, to protest this “celebration” of a foreign dictator and terror supporter — on Canadian soil. Help us send the message that the Ayatollah Khomeini does NOT represent Canadian values.
We will assemble at 4:30pm at a NEW location:
Al-Huda Islamic Center 975 Kennedy Road (Lawrence and Kennedy)
Islamic Society of York Region
1380 Stouffville Road, Richmond Hill
The email invitation to this event, sent out by “Islamic Enlightening,” calls Khomeini “one of the greatest Arif and Marja-e-Taqlid of our time” who “struggled” for “justice for the oppressed.”
This is an interesting description of the late Iranian leader Khomeini, who, among other crimes, oversaw the 444 day kidnapping of American diplomats (an act of war, chronicled in the recent film Argo.)
The Ayatollah Khomeini also advised his followers about how to have sexual relations with children and animals without violating Islamic law, as noted here in a book review by Mark Steyn (who was later taken to court by Canadian Muslims for writing these very words in Maclean’s magazine):
Signora Fallaci then moves on to the livelier examples of contemporary Islam — for example, Ayatollah Khomeini’s “Blue Book” and its helpful advice on romantic matters: “If a man marries a minor who has reached the age of nine and if during the defloration he immediately breaks the hymen, he cannot enjoy her any longer.” I’ll say. I know it always ruins my evening.
Also: “A man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep, may not eat its meat. He would commit sin.” Indeed. A quiet cigarette afterwards as you listen to your favourite Johnny Mathis LP and then a promise to call her next week and swing by the pasture is by far the best way. It may also be a sin to roast your nine-year-old wife, but the Ayatollah’s not clear on that.
NOTE: The Ayatollah’s “Blue Book” has been called “mandatory for every literate person [in Iran], a kind of guide to living.”
Are these Canadian values?
JDL Canada says no.
Please join us on Sunday, June 2 at 4:30pm as we protest this “celebration” of Ayatollah Khomeini’s teachings.
