It’s Saturday night and that means it’s time for the roundup! This week I’m feeling a little snarky with this political-based link drop. So I’ve softened it up with LEGGOs and a singing hippo, kangaroo, moose, penguin, and uniqua.

Again, if you come across anything of interest regarding Islam, Muslim women or Muslims in general and would like me to review it, answer questions, or just comment on it here, flip it to me via: w00dturtl3 {at} gmail {dot} com.

  • A new intelligence report suggests that Islamic Extremist groups are looking to make a ‘parallel society’ in Canada. An underground Muslim Caliphate. Muslim Mennonites. A Muslim society in seclusion to challenge Canadian authority and eventually take over the Great White North. Which could happen if Bill 94 is passed, and Muslims start feeling ostracized from the larger Canadian society.  Unless Quebec leaves first. Or America invades.  Whatever the outcome, this might be the first time EVER that I actually agree with Tarek Fatah, “You can talk about the Mennonites but the Mennonites’ aim in life is not to destroy Western civilization.” Or is it? </end shifty eyes>
  • Meanwhile, the Pope criticizes the French burqa ban, saying:
  • “Some women do not wear the burqa entirely voluntarily and it is correct to talk of a violation against that woman. Of course one cannot agree with that,” he said.

    “But if they want to wear it voluntarily, I don’t know why one must ban them.”

  • And not really Muslim, but I love The Backyardigans, and I love how a Canadian show can take a random song mid-episode and make it bhangra. Without throwing in South Asian/Indian clothes or stereotypical characters. Enjoy!
