    Excerpt:

    This spring (2003), Mr. Castro pushed his luck a little too far. Three young men, who had tried to highjack a ferry to flee to Florida, were executed after a mock trial. Seventy-five dissidents, whose only crime was to ask for a referendum on constitutional reform, were sentenced to terms as long as 28 years to rot in those abominable Cuban jails where the Red Cross hasn't been allowed for 15 years.

    Original title: Nobody likes Fidel any more

    For nearly 50 years, Fidel Castro has enjoyed a special status: Cuba's president for life has been the only dictator whose crimes went unnoticed by most Western governments.

    When he showed up at Pierre Elliott Trudeau's funeral service in Montreal, he was wildly applauded, as if he were still the young fiery leader who had just won a heroic guerrilla war.

    He's been the darling of the intellectuals, who systematically ignored the Cuban dissidents' desperate pleas for help. Even as horrific tales of repression came out of the island, Fidel Castro would remain the romantic hero who dared defy the American giant -- a compelling argument, especially in Canada.

    This spring (2003), Mr. Castro pushed his luck a little too far. Three young men, who had tried to highjack a ferry to flee to Florida, were executed after a mock trial. Seventy-five dissidents, whose only crime was to ask for a referendum on constitutional reform, were sentenced to terms as long as 28 years to rot in those abominable Cuban jails where the Red Cross hasn't been allowed for 15 years.

    The European Union is finally reacting, and just voted a series of measures to come to the aid of the Cuban dissidents. France is reconsidering its co-operation with the Cuban regime. Some of the left-wing intellectuals in South America, longtime fellow travellers of "Fidel," now are having second thoughts about the real nature of the Cuban regime. Even the Belgian self-proclaimed tribunal on crimes against humanity has added Mr. Castro's name to its blacklist, a remarkable event since its judges used to focus exclusively on men of the right, such as George Bush, Ariel Sharon and Augusto Pinochet.

    But the hardest blow came from the French left, more precisely from Laurent Fabius, a prominent member of the Parti Socialiste who served as prime minister under the presidency of François Mitterrand.

    "Dictators are neither right nor left, they are simply dreadful," Mr. Fabius wrote in a scathing article for the left-leaning weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur.

    Mr. Fabius stigmatizes the left for believing that criticizing Cuba would serve U.S. imperialism. "False!" he says. "The Americans have an interest in being the only opponents of the Castro regime because they will have greater access to the island's resources when the regime falls. In any case, we must define our attitude by ourselves, not according to what other governments are doing."

    Mr. Fabius wants the French government to demand the immediate liberation of the Cuban dissidents and to support the candidature of Oswaldo Paya, a critic of the Castro regime, for the Nobel Peace Prize. Mr. Fabius also calls for France and Europe to force change on the so-called Human Rights Commission of the United Nations, of which Cuba and other repressive regimes are members, and which is now presided over by . . . Libya. "Only countries that respect human rights should be admitted to this commission," Mr. Fabius writes.

    This advice also applies to Canada. It's not enough for the Prime Minister to sheepishly condemn the recent acts of repression in Cuba. Words are not enough.

    Of course, Canada was one of the first beneficiaries of the U.S. embargo on Cuba. The island became a profitable market for Canadian businessmen, free from U.S. competitors, as well as a cheap winter paradise for Canadian tourists. Nowadays, the only home-grown industries that prosper in Cuba are tourism and underground prostitution. Just like under the previous Batista dictatorship from which Mr. Castro was supposed to have liberated Cuba.

    Salah Basalamah condamne Marc Lebuis et Point de Bascule comme des «chasseurs de sorcières»

    Adresse originale : http://www.presencemusulmane.org/articles.php#65

    Auteur : Salah Basalamah, professeur à l’Université d’Ottawa.
    Date : 2 mars 2010

    Titre original : Pour une agora citoyenne

    On s’est beaucoup demandé ces derniers jours s’il fallait produire une charte de la laïcité québécoise. Malgré un soutien inconditionnel de la part des tendances les plus laïcardes (MLQ et autres), il s’avère par ailleurs qu’on a rejeté la proposition, tantôt avec le souci de se retrouver avec une interprétation plutôt fermée de la laïcité (Manifeste pour un Québec pluraliste, publié dans Le Devoir du 3 février), et tantôt avec la conviction qu’elle ne réglera pas « le problème central » que serait l’islam politique (Le Devoir du 15 février). Tant et si bien que c’est en s’appuyant sur le rapport Bouchard-Taylor que d’aucuns ont rappelé que c’est « un livre blanc » sur la laïcité au Québec qu’il nous faudrait plutôt voir proposé par le gouvernement.

    Or, le problème n’est pas tant d’espérer que Jean Charest se saisisse de la moindre proposition des commissaires sur les pratiques d’accommodements après presque deux ans d’inaction et d’inconséquences, mais bien plutôt pour le peuple québécois de se décider à engager un processus d’autonomisation qui puisse compenser d’une part l’immobilisme de la sphère politique et, d’autre part, le sensationnalisme médiatique dont profitent les marchands de la peur.

    Les chasseurs de sorcières

    Dans un récent article, Marc Lebuis, inconditionnel pourfendeur de l’islamisme, a souligné qu’une charte de la laïcité n’endiguerait pas le problème « central » et « fondamental » qu’est la « montée de l’islam politique, l'influence de groupes islamisants sur certains partis politiques, la présence de militants islamistes dans certaines institutions publiques, l'emprise de l'islam politique sur les musulmans d'ici… » Partisan exalté de la thèse du grand complot des méchants barbus qui guettent la moindre occasion de proclamer la république islamique au Québec, le sous-fifre de Daniel Pipes dans l’espace francophone ne voit rien d’autre dans les enjeux des accommodements sur les différences culturelles que l’ambition d’une confrérie invisible de détourner en sa faveur les crispations sociales autour des signes religieux. Bien qu’on n’explique pas comment ni selon quelle logique rationnelle on peut opérer un projet aussi improbable qu’excentrique, il restera que même si l’on devait aller jusqu’à formuler puis appliquer une laïcité « à la française », rien n’y ferait : « L'islam politique n'est pas une danseuse de ballet. Si vous le frappez de la main gauche, il sera toujours debout. Si vous le frappez de la droite, il sera encore debout. » Bref, l’islam politique équivaudrait en quelque sorte à Terminator ou Zombie…

    Bien pire que ces affabulations sur le seul ennemi prétendu de l’identité québécoise, évidemment tapi sous les draps d’une sournoiserie insaisissable (sauf pour PDB bien sûr), c’est l’effet pervers causé par autant de tapage médiatique (à coups d’encarts publicitaires et autres stratégies qui s’achètent en dollars) auprès d’une population qu’on prend pour naïve et aisément manipulable. À l’instar des autres marchand(e)s de l’émotion à bas prix et de la culture de la suspicion à tout crin, le réel danger tient dans l’utilisation abusive des épouvantails de l’altérité construite, quelle qu’elle soit. Jusqu’à quand va-t-on continuer à avaler les couleuvres de l’imaginaire complexé et xénophobe de ces agitateurs en mal d’attention et sans le moindre projet de société ? Comment peut-on encore faire preuve d’aussi peu d’assurance dans nos institutions parfaitement laïques au seul mouvement de chiffon rouge de ces émondeurs des droits et des libertés ?

    En parallèle du juridique, du médiatique et du politique

    Si on connaît les avantages du recours aux médias pour exprimer les opinions dans l’espace public, ils trouvent cependant leurs limites dans la faveur qu’on y découvre pour les discours polarisateurs et dans la distribution inégalitaire de la parole. Alors comment favoriser le dialogue et l’harmonisation sociale en dehors de nos médias « impartiaux » et de nos tribunaux engorgés ?

    Premièrement, pour « déjudiciariser la pratique d’accommodement raisonnable », le rapport Bouchard-Taylor avait notamment proposé l’alternative de « la voie citoyenne » favorisant ainsi la « culture du compromis », « les accords facultatifs » et les « ajustements concertés » (p. 65). Or, cette voie n’a été conçue, dans le rapport en question, que sous la forme d’un « règlement à l’amiable » des conflits ponctuels entre des individus. Ce qu’il faudrait en complément, c’est qu’en deçà de ce genre de règlement, un espace de prévention et de formation à plus grande échelle soit ouvert. Concrètement, il s’agira de créer de manière systématique mais indépendante de l’État, une sorte d’agora citoyenne organisée simultanément à travers le Québec, en partant du niveau des quartiers, des municipalités, des régions et ainsi de suite par délégation jusqu’à celui de la province. Dans ce forum public, et autrement que dans la CBT où on devait s’adresser qu’aux seuls commissaires, les citoyens sont appelés à se parler directement et à mettre périodiquement sur la table des questions qui fâchent, des problèmes épineux et des demandes d’explication relatives aux différences culturelles dans le cadre d’un projet social commun à la fois global et inclusif. Ainsi, et grâce à l’intervention de modérateurs soigneusement choisis localement pour le capital symbolique qu’ils possèdent, on favorisera non seulement un rapport immédiat de respect et d’acceptation mutuelle des citoyens et leurs diversités, mais également un apprentissage humanisé des différences culturelles et de la participation sociale.

    Deuxièmement, dès lors qu’un mouvement citoyen de base est enclenché, le politique n’est plus le seul organe de représentation constitué dans l’espace public. De cette façon, on pare à la fois à la démobilisation des citoyens qui accusent un déficit de confiance en la classe politique actuelle, ainsi qu’aux manipulations politiciennes (comme on en voit dans nombre de pays d’Europe) qui prennent par trop souvent les groupes culturels et religieux pour les boucs émissaires de leurs campagnes électorales populistes. Nourri par le fondement de ce qui définit le fonctionnement même d’une démocratie, le gouvernement ne pourra plus s’excuser de ne pas avoir été interpellé sur ses responsabilités pour l’apport de son soutien là où les citoyens le réclament en vue de proclamer la nouvelle identité inclusive du Québec.

    Plus qu’une charte de la laïcité et mieux qu’un livre blanc, une agora citoyenne indépendante de l’État constitue la traduction sur le terrain à la fois des principes universaux de liberté, d’égalité et de citoyenneté ainsi que celle de la capacité présumée des Québécois à se parler encore directement là où d’autres le refusent tout bonnement.

    Malgré les avertissements répétés des services de police et de renseignements depuis le 11 septembre 2001, les Canadiens ont encore du mal à croire que leur pays pourrait un jour être la cible d'un attentat terroriste. Le démantèlement vendredi soir en Ontario d'un groupe qui s'apprêtait à commettre un grave attentat nous forcera tous à nous rendre à l'évidence: les terroristes sont parmi nous.

    Dix-sept personnes, dont cinq mineurs, ont été arrêtées et accusées en vertu des dispositions antiterroristes du Code criminel. Selon le commissaire adjoint de la GRC, Mike McDonell, " ce groupe représentait une menace réelle et grave. Il avait la capacité et l'intention de perpétrer ces attaques. " Entre autres éléments compromettants, les policiers ont trouvé chez les suspects pas moins de trois tonnes de nitrate d'ammonium, un composé chimique qu'avait employé Timothy McVeigh pour faire sauter un édifice gouvernemental à Oklahoma City, tuant 168 personnes. La quantité de nitrate d'ammonium dont disposaient les personnes appréhendées vendredi soir est trois fois plus importante que la charge utilisée par McVeigh. Bref, ce qui se préparait dans la région de Toronto était gros. Très gros.

    On ne connaîtra peut-être qu'au cours du procès les détails de l'affaire, notamment la cible visée et les motivations des accusés. On sait déjà, toutefois, que le groupe fait partie de cette nouvelle forme de terrorisme qu'on pourrait baptiser " terrorisme islamiste maison ". Les 17 personnes arrêtées étaient des citoyens ou des résidants canadiens, bien que portant des noms à consonance arabe. Comme l'ont appris à leurs dépens les Britanniques lors des attentats dans le métro de Londres il y a un an, ce terrorisme-là est particulièrement sournois. Ces militants sont bien intégrés à la société dans laquelle ils vivent. Contre eux, le renforcement de la surveillance aux frontières et des contrôles à l'immigration sont futiles.

    Bien des gens ont réagi avec scepticisme lorsque, au début de la semaine dernière, le sous-directeur des opérations au Service canadien du renseignement de sécurité (SCRS), Jack Hooper, a déclaré devant un comité du Sénat que " les éléments qui ont mené aux attentats de Londres sont présents ici en ce moment au Canada. ". M. Hooper, on le constate aujourd'hui, savait fort bien de quoi il parlait. Il a plaidé en faveur de ressources additionnelles pour le SCRS; c'est une requête que le gouvernement fédéral devra étudier avec beaucoup d'attention.

    Le premier ministre, Stephen Harper, rencontre lui aussi beaucoup de scepticisme lorsqu'ilsoutient que le Canada doit participer à la guerre au terrorisme. " Les événements du 11 septembre 2001 ont été un dur rappel de la réalité pas uniquement pour les Américains, mais pour tous les habitants des pays libres et démocratiques, a-t-il rappelé lors du débat sur le prolongement de la mission canadienne en Afghanistan. Le Canada n'est pas à l'abri de telles attaques. Nous ne serons jamais à l'abri tant que nous sommes une société qui défend la liberté, la démocratie et les droits de la personne. "

    Les Canadiens doivent sortir de leur confort et de leur naïveté. Le terrorisme n'est pas une phobie de George Bush, mais bel et bien une menace qui pèse sur toutes les sociétés démocratiques. Dont le Canada.

    London police chief shows up at Munir el-Kassem’s mosque “in a display of solidarity” after revelation that two city Muslims were among jihadists involved in terrorist attack in Algeria

    el-kassem police chief

    Original title: Police chief skips convocation to address Muslim congregation

    Speaks at Friday prayers after two London men linked to January terror attack

    London Police Chief Brad Duncan rearranged his schedule to address Muslims gathered at the Islamic Centre of Southwest Ontario (ICSWO) for prayers Friday (April 5).

    Duncan skipped convocation at the Ontario Police College to appear with Imam Dr. Munir Elkassem in front of 100 men and women there for prayers in a display of solidarity with the Islamic community.

    Duncan urged city residents not to judge an entire segment of the population by the actions of two “radicalized” individuals while calling on members of the Islamic community to come to police when they see suspicious activity.

    On Thursday (April 4) the RCMP confirmed what had been speculated all week: two Canadians killed in a terrorist attack and hostage taking at a gas plant in Algeria in January —Xristos Katsiroubas and Ali Medlej — were from London.

    A third local resident, Aaron Yoon, has also been linked to the attack.

    Duncan said he wanted to get out ahead of any anti-Islamic sentiment that may be brooding in the broader community. He said incidents of racially motivated violence or harassment would be dealt with “swiftly.”

    “I thought it was very important to be here,” he said, London Police Service (LPS) diversity officer Sgt. Marcel Marcellan at his side. “We have a Muslim community that has existed here for decades. They have contributed to the fabric of our community.”

    Duncan said he hasn’t seen an increase in the frequency of threats or racist activity against Muslim people in the week the London connection has been in the news, but has spoken to Muslims who are concerned that could happen.

    Both he and El-Kassem referred to an increase in anti-Islamic “activity” following the arrest of a London man in summer 2010 on terror charges, the latter worried it would be “déjà vu” in spring 2013.

    Turning frequently to speak directly to a news camera at the side of the room, El-Kassem dedicated the first half of his sermon to a plea to the media — don’t paint all Muslims with the same brush, and don’t jump to conclusions.

    “Why is it that when someone who’s name suggests they are Muslim commits a crime, (you) have to excite everybody?” he asked. “Demand explanations? Terrorism has no religious identity."

    He said the Islamic community is no more responsible for the actions of Katsiroubas and Medlej than an entire church is responsible for the transgressions of a pedophilic priest.

    “Don’t pass judgment on a group until you know all the facts,” he said. “Don’t turn bitter a sector of the Canadian citizenship because you implicate them by association. That is my message to the media.”

    Assan Mostafa hasn’t seen a spike in racial tension either, but said he has prepared the eldest of his three children, an eight-year-old daughter, for a possible backlash at school.

    “I can’t say I feel less safe,” he said. “But kids can be cruel, so I talked to them about what to do in case someone says something. It’s my eight-year-old I’m concerned about the most. I told her to make sure she is aware of her surroundings.”

    Mostafa, past-president of the ICSWO, said Muslims, mainly women, are used to a level of harassment, being honked at or yelled to from cars in public, for example, but he hasn’t been told of any incidents of violence in the past week.

    “Nothing you would report to the police.”

    Location: Tripoli (Libya)

    WICS’ official objectives are summarized as follows at the end of the report of the conference:

    With the end of the First Conference a new phase in organized Islamic work began. This phase is based upon spreading and calling people to Islam based on the authentic teachings of the Holy Qur’ān. Islamic Da’wa is revived based on the vision and directions of the founder and Leader Mu’ammar Al-Qaddafi. Its activities spread to Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and Australia.

    The World Islamic Call Society’s initiatives are diverse. However the single objective of all activities and initiatives is to assist Muslims and humanity in general based on the recommendations of the First Conference. The Organization is working tirelessly to complete the institutions and develop effective plans and working methods in order to accomplish the objectives specified in the First Meeting. These objectives are the following:

    • Educate people about Islam throughout the world and train Callers for the same purpose.
    • Reinforce brotherhood and unity among Muslims.
    • Cooperate with other organizations that are involved in Islamic Da’wa and offer aid wherever needed.
    • Distribute the Holy Qur’ān and Islamic books for educational purposes.
