Is Tarek Fatah really a friend of Jews?

There is enough evidence to suggest that the former Saudi-resident Tarek Fatah was deeply anti-Israel and anti-Semitic until 2006 after which he acclimatized to his new country, Canada and changed his antisemitism to phobia of Shias, Ahmadis and other communities to promote the interests of the Saudi lobby. As a part of his new role, Tarek Fatha routinely obfuscates the Salafi Wahhabi and Deobandi identity of Taliban, Sipah-e-Sahaba, Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists, presenting them as Sunnis, hiding the fact that Salafi Wahhabi and Deobandi terrorists have not only killed thousands of Shias but also thousands of Sunni Sufis and Christians. Tarek Fatah was also active in false propaganda against Bahrain’s pro-democracy movement and indirectly supported the Saudi invasion of Bahrain.

Former Saudi-resident Tarek Fatah hides his real Islamist name Tariq Fatah (Tariq the Conqeurer of Spain). Probably because of his past Saudi Salafi connection, he is frequently subject to high security screening at the US airports.

It may be recalled that Fatah was a resident of Saudi Arabia for many years, after his handlers encouraged him to migrate to promote Saudi interests in Canada and the USA. His anti-Shia stance suggests that he is deeply indoctrinated by Abd al-Aziz ibn Abd Allah ibn Baaz and other Salafi Wahhabi clerics of Saudi Arabia. Consistent with Salafi Wahhabi practice of takfir (declaring other Muslims as infidels), Tarek Fatah declares Hazrat Abu Talib, the first Muslim and the beloved uncle of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as an infidel.

Even aftr relocating to Canada, Tarek couldn’t overcome his antisemitism. The Muslim Canadian Congress, which Tarek Fatah founded and led till late 2006, supported the campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel in May 2006. The Congress also compared Israeli policies to South African apartheid.

For example, the following article:

May 31, 2006
MCC thanks CUPE Ontario for resolution on Israel

Mr. Sid Ryan
President, CUPE Ontario
305 Milner Avenue, Suite 801
Scarborough, ON MIB 3V4

Dear Mr. Ryan:

On behalf of the Muslim Canadian Congress I am writing to thank you for passing the resolution to support the campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel.

The MCC is a grassroots organization that supports the aspirations and dreams of the peoples of the developing countries throughout the world; a dream of dignity, democracy, freedom from poverty and political oppression, and a just and lasting peace. To achieve this and resist the steady re-colonization of the developing world, the MCC works closely with like-minded groups in building an anti-imperialist movement.

We now understand that CUPE is coming under pressure to reverse its decision, but we urge you not to compromise or backdown from a position that reflects character, integrity and solidarity with a disenfranchised people.

The CUPE resolution comes on the heels of other notable and courageous symbolic actions of solidarity from the various corners of world. As you may be aware, a lecturers’ union in the United Kingdom voted this week to boycott Israeli academics and institutions that refuse to publicly condemn Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories.

Members of the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education, Britain’s largest university and college lecturers’ union with 67,000 members, has decided not to submit articles to Israeli research papers and exchange programmes with Israeli academic institutions involved directly or indirectly in Israeli apartheid policies.

The CUPE resolution can be equated in its moral symbolism with the International Court of Justice in The Hague 2004 ruling that said the separation barrier Israel was illegal and ought to be dismantled.

The resolution represents the hope in a world that is becoming defined by occupation, oppression and force. But like other apartheid states in the past, for example, South Africa, Israel too will have to be subjected to intense international pressure before it recognizes Palestinians as people with the right to their own viable sovereign state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

As stated so eloquently by Desmond Tutu in The Guardian last year, “Israel will never get true security and safety through oppressing another people. A true peace can ultimately be built only on justice. We condemn the violence of suicide bombers, and we condemn the corruption of young minds taught hatred; but we also condemn the violence of military incursions in the occupied lands, and the inhumanity that won’t let ambulances reach the injured.”

As you come under intense pressure from the pro-Israel lobby to back down on this principled stance, we don’t need to remind you that it has historically been a role and a responsibility of the trade union movement to be on the side of the disenfranchised, the voiceless and the oppressed and to stand for justice, freedom, and self-determination.

We ask that you not heed to this pressure and remind you of the words of Archbishop Tutu:

“But you know as well as I do that, somehow, the Israeli government is placed on a pedestal [in the US ], and to criticise it is to be immediately dubbed anti-semitic, as if the Palestinians were not semitic. I am not even anti-white, despite the madness of that group. And how did it come about that Israel was collaborating with the apartheid government on security measures?

People are scared in this country [the US ], to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is powerful – very powerful. Well, so what? For goodness sake, this is God’s world! We live in a moral universe. The apartheid government was very powerful, but today it no longer exists. Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pinochet, Milosevic, and Idi Amin were all powerful, but in the end they bit the dust.”
In solidarity,

On a recce mission in Israel on behalf of Saudi masters?

Also this is what Tarek Fatah wrote in 2005 by equating Iran’s intolerant President Ahmadinejad with the State of Israel and also by indirectly supporting Saddam Hussain, the killer of thousands of Shia Muslims and Kurds:

“While we unreservedly condemn the Iranian president, we cannot remain silent about Israel’s continued occupation of Palestinian territories. We also condemn Bush for posturing as a deliverer of freedom while occupying Iraq.”

Source: http://www.muslimcanadiancongress.org/20051029-2.html

Tarek Fatah could not hide his anti-Israel nature in his book “The Jew is not my enemy” when he blamed the victim by blaming Israel for anti-Semitism. Fatah wrote:

“Is Israel fueling anti-Semitism? “Yes,” he writes. Israel must end its “illegal” and “immoral” occupation of Palestinian territory and push for a Palestinian state alongside Israel.”

Source: http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/books/article/894004–the-jew-is-not-my-enemy-tarek-fatah

 

‘Shaikh’ Tarek Fatah remains a personal friend of the Salafi Wahhabi cleric Javed Ghamidi and agrees with Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi’s sectarian fatwas on Bahraini Shias

No wonder Tarek and his Muslim Canadian Congress wanted Canada to boycott Israeli products and commerce. This is what they wrote in 2006:

Canadian Union votes to boycott Israel: MCC thanks CUPE and Syd Ryan

Tarek Fatah

Message 1 of 1 , May 31, 2006

Friends,

On the weekend, the Ontario wing of Canada’s largest trade union, CUPE passed a resolution to support an international campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel.

Delegates to the Canadian Union of Public Employees convention voted overwhelmingly to support the campaign until Israel recognizes the Palestinian right to self-determination.
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20060527.wcupe0527/BNStory/National/

Now the union is coming under pressure to change its position.

The Muslim Canadian Congress has written to CUPE president Syd Ryan, thanking him for his courage and urging him to stand firm and not succumb to the pressures coming from supporters of Israel.

Here is the MCC letter to Syd Ryan.

——

It may be noted that while Tarek Fatah and his anti-Semitic colleagues were ever ready with their selective morality on Israel, they never demanded a similar morality and resolution to boycott Saudi and Iraqi products etc to demonstrated their displeasure at the massacre of Shias by Saudi king and Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussain.

Therefore, no wonder that despite one’s reservations about some of the analyses by Ali Sina, one has to agree with Sina on his comments on Tarek Fatah. Ali Sina wrote:

Mr. Tarek Fatah proves my point that there is no such thing as moderate Muslim. He calls himself hardened secular, but fractures when he hears a historic truth. So much for this hardness! When he says, “Wafa Sultan’s hatred of Islam was cultivating the very forces she claims to be exposing,” he is talking about himself. Many honest Muslims prefer not to hide their heads in the sand; they face the truth and deal with it in a rational way. I would like to remind the readers that virtually all Muslim terrorists come from a secular background. At one point they were just as “liberal” as Mr. Fatah is today until something happened in their lives and they turned to their faith.

According to George W:

Tarek Fatah, as has been revealed in his latest comments, is engaged in, among other things, a propaganda jihad against Islam critics. This is contributing to the spread and maintenance of Islam. Another large group of Muslims, a group which overlaps with the propaganda jihadists, engages in denial and deflection regarding the major problems in Islam. Tarek Fatah is also in this category. Another group of Muslims, which constitutes only a small percentage (perhaps 10% worldwide), are secular, are basically only nominal Muslims, and oppose sharia (at least on opinion polls). Tarek Fatah is not in this category because, while he is secular and opposes sharia, he is not merely a nominal Muslim. He is actively engaged in propaganda jihad, now to the point where he is pursuing the usual Islamic propagandist strategy of publicly verbally attacking Islam critics.

During the Hamas-Gaza conflict (July 2014), Tarek Fatah eulogized and glorified “brave” Hamas militants when they killed and kidnapped Israeli soldiers.

During the Israel-Gaza conflict (July 2014), Tarek Fatah distributed highly provocative literature likely to incited hatred and violence against Israelis and Jews within Muslim and Arab population. Here is one such example.

    Tarek Fatah: Some death threats don’t count
    Comments Twitter LinkedIn Email
    Tarek Fatah Mar 4, 2011 – 9:55 AM ET | Last Updated: Mar 4, 2011 10:03 AM ET

    I had just woken from surgery when the first death threat arrived.

    “This is an open threat to Xaar Boy @Tarek Fatah,” read the first Twitter posting, with its vulgar Somali adjective. “I know where you live & and where your office is.”

    The sender signed herself as Mariama AnnaLitical and pictured herself wearing a purple hijab in the style of Toronto’s radical young Islamists. Other Twitter followers denounced the threat and urged that AnnaLitical be reported, even arrested. At one point she withdrew the warning, then repeated it later the same morning:

    “He was also the 1 to propose banning the Niqab in Quebec… (and he) supports homosexuality,” she wrote, reiterating again: “This is an open threat. I know where you live/work @TarekFatah.”

    Her fellow Islamists joined in, calling me a bad Muslim for opposing the hijab and supporting equality for gays. Other posters said I had brought the threats down onto myself.

    I contacted Toronto police. Within hours, two uniformed policemen from 51 Division came to interview me in hospital. However, barely one minute later, we were interrupted. Two men entered the room and told everybody else to leave. They did not identify themselves, but five minutes into what amounted to a two-hour interrogation, I realized they were police intelligence officers. One of them, I recognized by reputation – a Muslim officer who had shut down a previous investigation into a death threat against me in 2008, and another one against a partner in liberal Islam, Tahir Gora.

    The latter incident took place in the winter of 2007. Gora, at that time, a columnist for the Hamilton Spectator, had spotted a Facebook page titled “The Enemies of Islam.” The page masthead featured the names and pictures of Gora, Bangladesh author Taslima Nasreen, Sir Salman Rushdie, Irshad Manji and yours truly. Next to Gora’s name was written, “Pseudo Muslims like you should be put to death.” Similar threats were made against the other secular or liberal Muslims on the list.

    Gora alerted Toronto police and within days he was visited by two plainclothes officers. Both were Muslim. Gora showed the lead officer all the posts, but despite the mountain of evidence, the officer showed little interest.

    “He told me they [the police] felt the website creator was not in a position to harm me,” Gora says. When Gora suggested charges should be laid to serve as a deterrent, the officer refused. “From the officer’s tone and body language,” Gora says, “it was obvious he was upset that I was filing a complaint against a fellow Muslim.”

    Meanwhile, after the intelligence officers left, the original officers confided to me that it was unusual for “intel” to act before a report had even been filed. I realized this was now about politics, and nothing would be done to help me.

    Later that night, the same Muslim officer called me to say AnnaLitical posed no danger. “She didn’t mean to say it,” the officer said. I asked if any charges were laid. “No,” he said. “I didn’t think it was necessary.”

    I have since informed Toronto Police Services chair Alok Mukherjee and Police Chief Bill Blair. Mukerjee assured me he will look into the matter. Chief Blair has not replied.

    The Toronto police, in their wish to promote an image of diversity and outreach, have dedicated themselves to serving and protecting the the radical Islamist elements within our city. Meanwhile, Muslims like myself, who do their best to promote the equality and respect that the police claim to cherish, are left without legal protection when radicals explicitly and publicly threaten us with violence. In Toronto, anybody can issue an “open threat” against a man laying helpless in a hospital bed and be assured they will not face charges, so long as the person making the threat is a black Muslim woman wearing a hijab.

    I’m hopeful that the police may yet make the right decision, now that I have gone public with this disgrace. If not, I will know the city I love is lost.

    Tarek Fatah: Montreal welcomes an Islamist extremist in sheep’s clothing
    Posted: November 05, 2009, 2:00 PM by NP Editor
    Full Comment, Tarek Fatah

    Tomorrow evening the citizens of Montreal will be treated to a spectacle of Islamist double-talk that will leave them dazzled. Tariq Ramadan will be speaking to a gathering at the University of Montreal.

    This time the voice of Islamism will not be the regular run-of-the-mill shrieks by sheikhs, but delivered by a man with a mellow disarming smile. The guttural accent we have come to associate with angry mullahs of the Middle East will be replaced by milky English delivered with a French accent.

    But make no mistake. The message of Tariq Ramadan will remain the same. The crudeness will be replaced by sophistication; the clumsiness by finesse. And Canadians, hungry for some sense of movement towards moderation in the world of Islam, will most probably lap it all up.

    So who is Tariq Ramadan?

    My first encounter with him was in a TVO discussion about Sharia Law in Canada in 2005.

    I had heard Tariq Ramadan had spoken against the idea of introducing Sharia Law in Canada. I was excited. The grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt would have the maturity and understanding to take a brave stand when the rest of the Islamist establishment was hell-bent on making sure sharia law found a foothold in North America.

    However, my hopes were dashed when the live show went on air. Tariq Ramadan made it very clear. He was not opposed to sharia law coming to Canada; he just didn’t think it was the right time to introduce it. In his words, Muslims were displaying a “lack of creativity”. He suggested that rather than ask openly for sharia law, Islamists should have sneaked it in through the existing legal framework.

    Taken aback, I was reminded of the Islamist doctrine of Taqiyaa, a dissimulation methodology employed to hide one’s true agenda, which recommends appearing harmless to one’s adversary with the objective of having them lower their guard.

    After the TV show, I did some research on Tariq Ramadan’s position on Sharia law. In the issue of Egypt Today of October 2004, he wrote:

    “The Muslims in Canada’s battle to set up shariah courts to settle domestic disputes is another example of lack of creativity. Within the normative law in Canada, they have huge latitude for Muslims to propose an Islamic contract. These courts are not necessary; all they do is stress the fact that Muslims have specific laws and for the time being this is not how we want to be perceived. (emphasis mine). We need to show that our way of thinking is universal, that we can live with the law and there is no contradiction.”

    He continued: “The term shariah in itself is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind. There is no need to stress that.”
    If I needed an example of doublespeak and dissimulation, I had found it.

    On Thursday, the Muslim Canadian Congress and the Montreal-based Point de Basqule took out a full page advertisement in Le Devoir welcoming Ramadan to Quebec and Canada, but exposing the hidden agenda that has mesmerized so many naïve Westerners.

    Titled, “Greetings to You, Oh My Brother!”, Point de Bascule and the MCC described Ramadan as an Islamist ideologue who pretends to be a moderate, but acts otherwise. This was best reflected in his refusal to outrightly condemn the practice of stoning women. He has asked for a ‘moratorium’ on such barbaric punishments.

    Tariq Ramadan’s conference on Friday evening is organized by a group of his disciples, but has the backing of many on the left as well as such partners as the l’Institut du Nouveau Monde and the Quebec Ministry of Immigration and Cultural Communities.

    Ramadan reflects the new sophisticated arm of the worldwide Islamist movement, which sees the West as the right place to wage a cultural and intellectual jihad. It preys on Muslim youth who are tired of the old guard; men in beards and long frocks, frothing as they denounce the evil West. The new technique is to undermine the West from within, like parasites and termites, with the host society never knowing what hit it, until it is too late. UK is one example.

    Those dazzled by the charm of the new Islamists need to recognize that Tariq Ramadan in 2003 praised a book written by Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the radical Islamist sheik based in Qatar; the man who justified suicide bombing. Ramadan hosts a weekly show on the Iranian government’s PressTV network. He has never dissociated himself from the Iranian regime, not even during the repression of protesters who were opposed to the “re- election” of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. As young Muslim men and women were being beaten up and tortured by the Iranian regime, Ramadan was quite happy to give the Iranian ayatollahs a pretty face.

    I close with the words of French Muslim journalist Mohamed Sifaoui: “Tariq Ramadan is an Islamist. He is among those who want political Islam, the European version of the Muslim Brotherhood, to infiltrate institutions, society, associations, parties, the media and so on, in order to pressure these same societies, to “reform” them from inside, to Islamize them or re-Islamize them, the better to pervert them, to progressively bring them to accept a medieval vision of the Muslim
    religion.”

    Brother Tariq, your father Said Ramadan came to my birthplace Pakistan in 1948 as a Muslim Brotherhood emissary and was instrumental in turning a secular Muslim country into a hotbed of Islamic extremism. I will not let the son of Said Ramadan come to my adopted home Canada and do the same, without a fight. Your Islamist father ruined my birthplace; I will not let you ruin the place where I will die.

  5. Empowering veiled women

    BY JULIA WILLIAMS, CALGARY HERALD APRIL 23, 2011

    Re: “More evidence why the West should ban the burka,” Licia Corbella, Opinion, April 20.

    In her column, Licia Corbella identifies the plight of Afghan women, the harassment of British women and the unsubstantiated musings of writer Tarek Fatah to validate an argument in favour of curbing the rights of our fellow citizens in Canada.

    Canadian women who wear the niqab are demonized as both the passive victims of male oppression and active promoters of socalled Islamofacism, practically in the same breath. The contradictory nature of these two accusations speaks to their absurdity.

    If women are being coerced or oppressed, they should be supported and empowered by society to make their own choices, without stifling the freedom of women who choose to act and dress however they please. Nor is the suppression of political views, even distasteful ones, a reasonable objective in imposing a niqab ban.

    The suppression of free thought and expression would pose a greater threat to our democracy than the handful of Canadian women who wear the niqab voluntarily. It’s time to start separating fear from fact. Explore the possibility that Canadians who wear the niqab are good people, honest citizens, and entitled to the same freedoms as the rest of us.

    ………..

    Tarek Fatah, renowned author and founder of the secular group Muslim Canadian Congress, says he hopes Stephen Harper wins a majority and follows the lead of French President Nicolas Sarkozy and bans the burka and niqab.

    “The burka and the niqab is the political uniform of the regiments of the Muslim Brotherhood, which is a fascist, supremacist organization,” explained Fatah, who was reached in his Toronto hospital room, where he is recovering from life-saving surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his spine.

    “You can’t wear a swastika today and not be a Nazi, and the niqab is the swastika of the Muslim Brotherhood,” added Fatah on Tuesday.

    “Every woman who wears a burka by choice in the West is a supporter of Islamic fascism, believes in jihad and desires the implementation of sharia law and the destruction of western civilization. There is not one of these women who will say that they are against sharia and they’re against jihad,” he said. “So, we’re dealing with a dress code of a fascist organization that has in its gunsights, the West.”

  6. Does anyone know Tarek? Why is he doing such reckless things. Everyday shias are being massacred in Pakistan. Yesterday it was a Judge in Balochistan. Day before that it was two shias in Karachi. Last week, 21 shias and 3 sunnis who were protecting the shias were taken off a bus and executed. This article is very correct. See the videos of anti-Shia speeches by extremists- Tarek is using similar tactics to inflame sentiments and paint a target on all shias for the actions of some obscure juvenile idiots. I thought he was liberal and secular and pro shia. Clearly not the case. His bugz against shias stands exposed thanks to social media

  7. This man no different from Zarqawi who has blood of thousands innocent shia pilgrims on his hands! No difference between Fatah and Zarqawi.

    Please pass this on to as many concerned HUMAN RIGHTS people as possible. Approach media, lawyers, local politicians and ask them for expose and legal action against this closet Al Qaeda activist Tarek Fatah. He is hater of shia. In Pakistan and Indonesia, they are massacring shia becoze of the shameless hatred spread by Fatah types. His progressive talk is a mask to hide his hatred of shia muslims which now exposed.

  8. Check it out….its a devastating 50 page report on his incitement of hatred and it uses his own words and tweets to prove it!

  10. I think everything said made a bunch of sense.
    However, consider this, what if you added a little information?
    I am not suggesting your content isn’t good, but what if you added a title to maybe get people’s attention?
    I mean Is Tarek Fatah really a friend of Jews? | Pakistan Blogzine is
    a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  11. Hi, just wanted to tell you, I liked this blog post.
    It was funny. Keep on posting!

  12. Despite indulging in controversies, Tarek Fatah has done some good work too; taking a staunch stand on the Palestine issue, declaring that he believed in Israel’s right to exist, but calling for an end to “illegal” and “immoral” Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, and supporting a two-state solution. Fatah believes Israel’s actions are fueling anti-Semitism, though anti-Semitism in itself, he believes, “violates Islam’s essence”.
