The "hate speech" weapon is increasingly used by the thuggish Leftist/Islamic supremacist axis to silence its opponents, writes Robert Spencer on Jihad Watch; and if we ignore the false charges made, they will be assumed true by those who are naive and unaware of what game is being played.

Palestinian jihadists' fabrications of Israeli atrocities are amply documented now, although the mainstream media still retail them; less well known is that the jihad in the Balkans also has a busy propaganda arm. Dr. Srdja Trifkovic, author of the excellent book on Islam and jihad, The Sword of the Prophet, ran afoul of it yesterday, as he was barred from entering Canada. The Serbian Youth League (thanks to George) explains this latest Freedom of Speech Death Watch Alert:

Serbian-American professor Dr Srdja Trifkovic was denied access into Canada after being accused of holding a senior position in the Government of Republika Srpska during the Bosnian war by the Vancouver airport immigration authorities. Srdja, who was a foreign affairs expert with links in the Bosnian Serb Government, never held any position in that Government, let alone a senior one. The fabricated reason for deportation was likely the result of lobbying by the extremist organization "The Institute for Research of Genocide in Canada", which is notorious for inventing stories, such as the disproven lie that Canadian General MacKenzie raped a Bosnian woman at a time when he wasn't even in Bosnia, as well as denying the Holocaust in Yugoslavia during World War II. Also, there are strong indications that higher factors in the Canadian government are involved in this scandalous and dark chapter in Canadian history, the investigation is under way.

Jihad Watch reader Joe Serb sent this in:

Srdja Trifkovic was scheduled to speak at a Serb-sponsored gathering at the University of British Columbia. About 60 of us waited outside of Room 222, Swing Space Bldg last night, only to hear that Prof. Trifkovic had been stopped at the airport, and was under questioning for his ideas. He writes on the Muslim danger to Europe and the world. I witnessed a small group of Muslims celebrating the cancellation (I waited for 45 minutes after the start date, but most left when we learned that the Professor was still in custody). He was accused of "hate speech" in a student newspaper.

I strongly believe that we have to reply energetically to all such charges; the "hate speech" weapon is increasingly used by the thuggish Leftist/Islamic supremacist axis to silence its opponents, and if we ignore the false charges made, they will be assumed true by those who are naive and unaware of what game is being played.

I was there when a group of about 60 Serbs waited at room 222 of the Swing Space Bldg at UBC, only to be told that Trifkovic was in custody at the airport. I saw a group of 4 muslims celebrating the cancellation. Organizers had to employ 4 private security guards. Normally, there would have been more MSA agitators present. They must have known something.

See local student newspaper article that I uploaded as a pdf on a free P2P file share service.




India at Partition was 7% Muslim; India is now 15% Muslim.

Pakistan at Partition was 20% Hindu; Pakistan is now 1% Hindu.

Ergo: Muslims are the real ethnic cleansers. Bosnian Catholics and Orthodox, cannot even get permits to repair religious facilities, let alone build new ones.

Under Sharia, blasphemy and apostasy are capital crimes. Is Canada now a Sharia state?

This is another sad day for Canada. Immigration authorities were obviously pressured by "The Institute for Research of Genocide in Canada" — a group with a clever name(which has built-in assumptions sure to garner sympathy and create memorable yet false associations,similar to "United Against Fascism"), which wasn't available for comment in this clip from CTV News.

It will be interesting to see how this incident plays out: will the MSM take the easy route and swallow the propaganda from this group, or will it do a bit of digging?

This follows the scandalous Canadian trial of Mark Steyn;"Shakedown!" (2009)

What a travesty of justice, free speech, and democracy! This is what happens when you resist the New World Order as the Serbs have consistently done. The hypocrisy of not allowing Dr. Trifkovic to speak but allowing the "Institute of Research Genocide" (a Bosnian Muslim front organization) to spew hate and Holocaust revisionist rhetoric is astonishing. I thought Canadian leaders were more mature than that.

I am not letting this go away.

I sent a letter to my MP expressing my disgust over the banning of this author based on fabricated evidence.
