A social media post about Arabic writing on patrol car has resulted in many angry phone calls from Americans upset over the apparent “Islamization of Canada.” The post was picked up by a conservative American blog site that also published the phone number for London police.”Headquarters has been getting calls like crazy,” Const. Sandasha Bough said. “Some of them are being patched up to me and people are just screaming at me.”
That was the basis of the complaint put forward by the FCDF’s executive director, Daniel Piedra, who said, “By urging teachers to bless Muslim students in Arabic, the district is running roughshod over the mandate of government neutrality toward religion.”

A national group that lobbies for Muslim civil liberties asked the S.C. Legislature on Friday to drop a bill that would ban Sharia law from being used as a defense in state courts, saying it is unconstitutional.
Council on American-Islamic Relations attorney William Burgess said the bill violated the Constitution’s Establishment Clause on religion because it is designed to attack Muslim religious principles.
“[The niqab] hurt us terribly. It was measured. I can share with you that the polling we did showed we dropped over 20 points in 48 hours here in Quebec because of the strong stand I took on the niqab,” Mulcair said.
